This week’s Weekend Wrap-Up is full of feel-goodness. The holidays are upon us an it’s always a great time to lend a helping hand, whether you’re on the giving end or the receiving end.
First up, longtime Broke-Ass Bride reader Maria wants to pass on something meaningful to help out a bride-to-be: Her wedding dress.
Maria and her husband’s wedding was a public show of commitment not only to one another, but to the community that surrounds them. In her own words, ” … our wedding was not just a commitment to each other but a commitment to our friends and family. Its that memory of that celebration that keeps us grounded and helps us stay focus so that we grow closer together as a family. So I want to make it a little easier for someone else to have that same memory to help them through their relationship.” With this in mind, Maria is seeking someone who shares her and her husband’s values of compassion, social justice and perseverance, and who would be willing to pass the dress forward after use. Dress details: 2009 Casablanca, style 1876. Size 8. Maria is 5’4″ and wore 3-inch heels, but says the dress was a bit long. The dress is a Champagne color and has a French bustle. If you’re interested or want more details, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested parties should live in L.A. or be willing to meet Maria in Los Angeles. (Please express your interest by Jan 1st!)
But florists aren’t the only ones being called upon to lend a helping hand. Wish Upon a Wedding‘s yearly online auction opens for bidding Dec. 20 and the organization, which helps provide weddings and vow renewals for those couples — same sex or not — who face terminal illness or serious life-altering circumstances. Auction items are being accepted until Dec. 15. Wedding biz peeps can help out by donating photography packages, cakes, dresses, hotel stays … and so much more. To help out with this awesome cause, simply hop on over here for more deets.
