If you’re not planning to vacu-seal your wedding dress after the big day, consider donating it! Bethany and her team at www.idofoundation.org have set up a terrific program where you donate your dress, and 20% of the consignment sale through their partners goes to the charity of your choice…and it may qualify as a tax donation. So check out this terrific program at http://www.idofoundation.org/resources/dresses/. I’m searching right now for a group that collects bridesmaids’ dresses that will be given to inner city teens to give them stylish prom gown choices. I’ll report back on that one as soon as I find it. Busy day today…I’ve set up charity events for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Red Cross, and others through the fabulous gift store chain www.bluetulip.com — it’s my new favorite place for personalized (modern or traditional) wedding, shower, and engagement invitations, as well as amazing gift items for bridesmaids.
