The most important thing when planning a wedding is making sure you have plenty of time to save and make arrangements, however, due to the indiscriminate nature of many life limiting illnesses, this luxury is mercilessly removed. Due to the insecurity created by receiving such devastating news, you would not want to leave your spouse carrying the debt that a wedding would incur.
Through building an extensive network of professional volunteers and a database of suppliers and businesses, who are willing to donate or work at cost, we will be able to make wonderful things happen, at short notice and at a reasonable price for the people who deserve it the most.
The project also collects used wedding dresses from generous brides and donates them to brides within the 'Wish for a Wedding' concept. Any dresses donated that are not used after 12 months, or are not up to the standard required to be reused, will be turned into burial gowns for babies that are no longer with us.
We look forward to sharing the stories and memories from the special days we capture. Your donations will mean more couples can benefit from our services and have one last special day to remember.
Do you have a wedding dress collecting dust in the attic? Will you wear it again? It might be a dream dress for a bride dealing with a terminal illness. Why not do something good with it?
If you'd like to donate your wedding dress to be turned into burial gowns for babies that are no longer with us, or to be sold to raise funds to give more couples one last wish of a wedding, then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep an eye on our Facebook page as we usually post if we need a dress in a particular size.
We receive wedding applications at very short notice, in all areas of the country - we then have to find a volunteer wedding planner to help with that particular wedding.
If you'd like to donate your service and offer your time to one of the recipients in your community, even if it's 1 wedding a year - it all counts. You must be a UK resident and have relevant insurance policies.
Keep an eye on our facebook page for weddings that we need help with. We also plan weddings for local hospices which could require us to find wedding items in less than a day - we contact companies direct in these cases as time isn't on our side. All other weddings will be posted on social media.
If you're a wedding planner and would like to donate your time to help with a wedding, please email email@example.com with your contact details and location. Once we receive a wedding in your area we will check our database to see who is available.
