Bridesmaid's Dresses for a Good Cause
June 14, 2007

So summer is almost here and so is closet cleaning time! There finally is a good reason to pull out those old bridesmaid dresses- those that just never were your style, (hellooo bright turquoise corset dress!) those that seem to verge on too fancy to wear in any other circumstance, (the floor length gown with train..) those that no longer fit (it was many years ago!)…

An Illinois nonprofit- Glass Slipper Project is doing the coolest thing. They are collecting formal dresses and giving them to disadvantaged girls to wear to their high school proms.

Check them out online Glass Slipper Project to find a city near you to see how you can donate! (LA girls, be sure to check out Planet Hope)

You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.

I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
