Happy Friday everyone!
In honor of “The Dress” that is making it’s way around the internets, today’s blog post is featuring many beautiful dresses! ;)
A few weeks back I had the privilege of capturing the The Brides Project first “on the road” bridal event! Our many hundreds of gowns carefully made their way from their home in Ann Arbor to the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan for the Whimsical Occasions Bridal Show! Read More.
Ever heard of The Brides Project?! Well now you have. No matter who you are, this bridal boutique is something to learn about. The mission statement says it all:
“To provide brides with a socially conscious budget an eco-friendly option for purchasing a bridal gown, and to use these proceeds at the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor for people touched by cancer.” Read More.
The Brides’ Project, a volunteer-based bridal salon, has moved to a different facility located at 1677 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor, in The Courtyard Shops.
TBP was modeled off of a salon in Toronto, owned by Helen Sweet. Monique Sluymers, who is from Toronto, connected to bring the business to Ann Arbor. TBP’s core principle is to maximize money for services for people impacted by cancer. The money goes through the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor, according to Barb Hiltz, executive director of the Cancer Support Community. Read More
Were you listening to Channel 95.5 this morning? If so, you may have heard the exciting news about our May dress drive! Here’s the details:
The Brides Project is thankful to be partnering up with Channel 95.5’s Shannon Murphy and Art Van Furniture to host our first month long dress drive! All through May, Art Van will be accepting donations of wedding gowns which will be donated directly to The Brides Project.
Additional details can be found on Channel 95.5’s website, here.
Our kick off event is this Saturday, May 5th from 1pm-3pm at the Art Van store across from Twelve Oaks Mall. We’ll have our own volunteers on hand to collect donations and meet with anyone who stops in to see us! If you weren’t excited enough, Channel 95.5 has also partnered with Lucido Fine Jewelry to give away a chance for 1 of 8 $50 gift cards to women who donate their dresses at Art Van on the 5th! A chance at free jewelry gift cards and donating to a worthy cause – what could be better?
We’d love to see you on Saturday and hope that you’ll spread the word about our month long dress drive. The Brides Project wouldn’t be possible with the generous donations of dresses from brides – the more dresses we have, the better we able to continue to help support the Cancer Support Community.
This morning, The Brides Project was featured in Fox 2 Detroit’s Style File! We are so excited that they so generously decided to profile us. You can see a sampling of our dresses featured here:
