We are proud to partner with Weddington Way on a dress drive this year!  Weddington Way is encouraging women to contribute to this great cause by mailing their lightly used dresses (that are no older than 2006) to their offices in San Francisco. Alternatively, email proof of donation of a dress to a charity of your choice to projectdressup@weddingtonway.com.  As a token of their appreciation, each dress donor will receive a $25 voucher that can be used towards a bridesmaid dress purchase at WeddingtonWay.com. We will also mail the tax receipt to you at the address provided.

Visit WeddingtonWay.com for more information!  Thank you to the Weddington Way team for their support!
