These funds will help WUW grant weddings for couples facing terminal illness, such as the wedding they are granting for a Portland couple in September. Since 2010, WUW has granted more than 55 weddings and is approaching its 60th wish this year! With 13 chapters around the country, WUW has thousands of supporters ready to grant weddings for couples facing terminal illness and other serious life threatening illness.
In July 2012, we partnered with WUW to oversee a national fundraiser of collecting and reselling wedding dresses. Since then, we have collected more than 1,000 beautiful wedding dresses from bridal stores and individuals around the country. We have sold more than 450 wedding gowns since we opened our doors last October! As we approach our 1st anniversary, we will be moving into a new 2,100 sq ft warehouse on NE 20th & Alberta in Portland to “house” all of our gowns. Stay tuned for our open date – but in the meantime, you can find us at our small storefront location in NW Portland.
