Glitter & Grit’s “Bridal Revival” Dress Drive

Donate your wedding dress at Glitter & Grit’s “Bridal Revival” event on Friday, April 8 at the Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh!

Glitter & Grit’s Bridal Revival is the chance for you to wear your wedding dress again, and really enjoy it this time. No pre-ceremony jitters, no shaking hands and kissing babies; just a fun night out with girlfriends, looking fabulous and having a blast!

After it’s all over, there’s an opportunity to do some good. They will be accepting wedding and bridesmaid dress donations for us (Brides for a Cause) and Project Prom. Additionally, all proceeds derived from the event will be donated to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

You are invited to join in the fun by rocking your wedding, bridesmaid, or other formal dress! Tickets to the Bridal Revival include small bites, signature cocktails, hair and makeup touch-ups, party stations, contests, access to the Revival Lounge,  and (of course) dancing!

Hotel Monaco will be offering discounted room rates for attendees of Bridal Revival if you want to go all-out and stay the night. Make your reservation through this link or reference the “Bridal Revival Room Block” when you call 855-338-3837.

Over $360,000 raised for Charity!

Drum roll please!!!! Brides for a Cause is pleased to announce that it has raised over $360,000 for our partner charity, Wish Upon A Wedding, a nonprofit organization granting weddings and vow renewals for couples facing serious illness or a life-altering circumstance.

Since we started in 2012, we have sent the charity over $360,000 to help fulfill their mission of granting weddings for couples who deserve them! We may be only a full-time staff of 3, but we have received help from thousands of supporters, donors, brides, volunteers, colleagues, freelancers and strangers from across the country giving us the support, reminders and courage to continue recycling wedding dresses, knowing in the end we’re helping others!

We hope after reading this you may be inclined to make a difference in the world like we have! Most days we stand in awe of all of the dresses that arrive on our doorstep daily. Past brides are trusting us with their wedding dresses to resell while bridal stores, manufacturers and designers are wanting to “send” their samples to a place that will appreciate them – and for that desire and generosity, we are forever thankful! Thank you for letting us be the “middle man” of connecting brides with other brides through their wedding dresses, so they can be worn again!
