The cost of planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and for couples who are facing serious and life-threatening health conditions, sometimes there simply is no money left in the budget for even the simplest of weddings. Enter Wish Upon a Wedding, a non-profit organization that provides free weddings to couples who are facing serious life challenges, usually a terminal illness.
Wish Upon a Wedding has granted the wedding wishes of more than 45 couples since 2010, and their beautiful stories can be read on the organization's website. They rely on donors and support from vendors to plan and fund these weddings, and it is easy to help.
After your own wedding, you can help by considering donating your wedding dress to Wish Upon a Wedding through their partner organization, Brides for a Cause. Many women initially plan to hold onto their wedding dresses, but after a few years, they may realize that the dresses are just sitting in their closets, untouched and unused. By donating those dresses, they make it easier for couples who will likely only have a few years together, at most, to have the weddings they dream of but never thought they would achieve.
