PROJECT BRIDAL SWAP! ! ! !

PROJECT BRIDAL SWAP!

The ladies of PW have some amazing shoes, veils, and accesories.  Some of them bought too much for the big day and want to share!  They are looking to gift their new or like-new shoes, veils, and accesories to brides in need who may not otherwise be able to buy or wear them.

 

To participate, there are a few rules!


If you need a bridal item

  • Post your story here in this thread!  Tell us about your wedding, your fiance, and why you need and or would love an item gifted to you by a fellow PW bride!  Please include your shoe size/dress size as applicable, as well as give us a general idea of your overal style and theme!  Feel free to post photos.
  • Please post your wedding date!
  • Be prepared to cover the cost of shipping
  • If a member has something that may work for you, they will contact you privately via PM
  • If you are gifted an item, please make sure to post photos of the item in action at your fittings and wedding!

If you would like to donate a bridal item

  • Items should be a modern bridal style and in new or like-new condition
  • You would be gifting the item to the member and will not get it back
  • The member will pay shipping
  • You get to read through their stories in this thread and decide if you want to contact one of them!  If a members post really speaks to you, and you have something you think they may love and enjoy, send them a PM and include estimated shipping costs.
  • You may also post your item in this thread, but be prepared for a LOT of PM's from brides who want it

RULES:

  • Please be honest
  • PW is not responsible for lost or damaged goods, or failure to deliver
  • I recommend payment of shipping costs be done via Paypal
  •  If you were gifted something, please consider re-gifting it after your wedding!

I know I've got a few things I don't need, so let's see those stories ladies! ! !  If you are donating, don't limit yourselves either - this could be decor, a dress, etc. that you can't sell or have to donate to a bride in need!   :)

I will be the first to post an item!  But remember, I need to know your story, if you don't want to share your story publicly, feel free to PM me. I want to make sure that it goes to someone that really needs it.  I am banking on Honesty. :)


I have this Gabriella Rocha dress that I had purchased for my Hostess to wear, but it is not going to work for her, it is a size 3X, but it is cut really small. It can certainly be worn as a Bachelorette Party Dress or even a FAB Shower dress.

    Ok I'll post my story. I know many brides have much harder situations, but mine is hard for my FI and I. We are trying to plan a classy, nice wedding without spending a ton of money. We are both college students and will be graduating the month before the wedding. We both have just above minimum wage jobs right now because we're in class during the day and work at night. FI is studying to be a teacher and I'm a history major. So we're working as hard as we can to try to save money for this wedding, but after our monthly bills, there isn't much left. Both of our sets of parents own their own businesses. Which sounds great, but in this economy it really means they don't make any money. My parents can't pay all their bills every month because they haven't taken home paychecks from the business for awhile now. They're doing everything they can just to keep the business afloat (my dad works 60+ hours a week). I don't know the specifics on FI's parents, but I know they are very tight on money right now. All that being said, FI and I are worried about being able to pay for the wedding we envision. I love him very much and I know the most important thing is that we are married. But I still want the wedding that I've dreamed about.


    Our wedding theme is nautical, so our colors are navy and white. We are getting married outside in a park. I wear size 9.5 shoes. I have been looking for a cathedral length ivory veil (my dress is in ivory from David's Bridal), but they are so expensive. Also, I really don't know what to do for centerpieces, but we'll find a cheap option somewhere. I'm an 8/10 in dresses. I've been looking for a white dress for my shower so if anyone has one they would like to gift I would love that.


    I would really appreciate anything anyone would like to gift. That would be one less thing FI and I would have to buy, and things definitely add up. If you've actually read this far thanks!!
