The Brides Project holds the safety of Volunteers, Brides and their families in the highest regard. As a leadership team, we have met to review the actions we should take regarding our response to the COVID-19 virus. It is our responsibility to ensure that we are taking precautions to protect our guests and volunteers from the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

It has been our goal to remain open, however, in response to the changing health landscape, we have made the decision in the best interest of all involved to temporarily close The Brides Project.
