Giving Each Dress a Second Story

Amethyst Brown - Tampa, Fl

After much conversation and thought, my husband and I made the decision to have a small wedding ceremony composed of immediate family only. Additionally, New Year's Eve has always been one of my favorite holidays. Therefore, we chose New Year's Eve for our wedding date. Since both of my husband's grandmothers live right outside of Orlando, we thought it best to have our wedding close to that area and eventually decided to get married on a cruise boat departing out of a port in Tampa.

In regards to the dress, I wanted something casual yet still with a bit of elegance and after trying on several dresses I found one I was satisfied with. While I loved wearing my dress on my wedding day, I was thrilled to have the opportunity for someone else to enjoy it.  Baby News!  Congratulations to Amethyst and her husband who recently welcomed their first baby!

Eunice Kaimila - Lilongwe, Malawi

On December 20, 2014, Eunice Mtali wed Bongani Kaimila in Lilongwe, Malawi.  Eunice not only purchased her wedding dress, but also two bridesmaid dresses from The Dress Project.

Eunice commented, "It amazes me how these dresses fit right into what I wanted for the wedding. I thank God for the mutual benefit and opportunity of getting my dreams met plus raising funds for education. This is a priceless endeavor."

It was a long and happy wedding day for us, spanning 16 hours of celebration with friends and family. I wore my dress for our dinner with friends at the end of the day. My two bridesmaids had worn their brown dresses for the ceremony and reception earlier.
