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!

Hey ladies! There are two items that i really need for my wedding! If you have either i would be so grateful! First is a veil. I had found a bride on this thread before and had worked out a swap with her but i havent heard from her in a while so im really not sure where it stands. I am looking for a bubble veil :). The other item i am looking for is a mermaid underskirt for my dress! If you are willing to pass on either PM me :)!!! Thank you!!

Great idea!  I have a friend who is looking to get rid of a dress.  I'll tell her about this.

This is such an amazing, heartwarming gesture and I can't help but want to throw in a contribution. 


That being said, I'd like to offer the silk bouquets I made for my BFF's wedding.  There are 4 bridal bouquets (1 MOH and 3 BM) and 2 FG bouquets.  The bouquet holders are Tiffany Blue, but I think I should be able to swap the ribbon with a different colour if need be. 


Interested brides, please check out the bio page on my profile for photos and PM me if you're interested.  :)


UPDATE:  November 21, 2011


I'm really happy to say that these bouquets have now found a new bride.  :)

This is awesome! I actually was going to post something on here but after reading stories I contacted a bride privately and offered something to her! She accepted and im very excited to help her out!


Ladies there are many who are fortunate to have many who arent able to have so quickly and this is just a great way to see that ALL of us get to have beautiful wedding days so kudos to everyone for sharing whether you are looking for things or giving things!


AWESOME LADIES!

I have a gift card for two free Tungsten wedding bands ($25 per ring shipping) from JVL Jewelry. I have no use for it, and would love for a bride in need to get it!


EDIT: This went to a well-deserving bride!

My FI and I are both working and saving up for our wedding on August 11, 2012. I am also a college student getting ready to graduate next semester. My FI works graveyard shift in order to make extra money.  He wants me to have the wedding I always wanted so he’s doing all he can and I appreciate that from him. I don’t even know if he knows how much I appreciate all he does and I’m glad to have him in my life. We are getting married in Las Vegas because we feel only people we want will show up and not have too many people. Planning a wedding in San Diego is expensive and Vegas would be fun and it would be our honeymoon too. My Dress is white laced strapless and I will be wearing a birdcage and have a lower side-do not sure if a bun or a braid. My dress and hairpiece are both gift bought brand new from my mom and sisters. Since we are paying our own wedding it get’s pricy but I have done everything in my power to make it as elegant and cheap. I am ready wanting to have a white, silver, all shades of blue and rhinestone brooch bouquet but the brooches are too expensive and if you are able to donate any it would be great. I am also in need of earrings; necklace and a bracelet would also help. Any bit helps to complete my wedding day. I appreciate all the help and everything your doing to help those in need.

My name is Suzanne and I would like to share a bit of my story with you all..


Im 26 and have 4 wonderful children, My fiance is 31 and he works really hard to pay the bills because I am between jobs right now and it make's everything really hard to pay for after we get bills paid there is not much left. My kid's are from the age's of 7 to 2 yo and they mean the entire world to me! I would go hungry before they would ever have to think about it! The thing we are having difficulty with is everything, we just want to get married to be honest we are actually thinking of going to the courthouse to just go and get it over with :'( But I dont have the heart to do that.. This is our time to show everyone how much we mean to each other.. I love him with all of my heart and we do have good times and hard times, but after the day is dane I couldnt imagine my life with out him in it! I feel complete with my kid's and Kenny.. This is my family and I wouldnt have it any other way.. Right now we just have the essentials and a very limited budget so if there is anything someone wants to help out with I would gift it back to another needing bride and her family <3 Thank you all!!

I could type all night about my little family but I'll make it short... my name is Pam and I moved to CT in 2007 from Mexico (funny thing is that I moved on april 17th and my fiance's bday is on april 14th... lol), meet my fiance Lee about 6 months after and we hit it off right away. After almost a year of dating we decided to go our own ways (who am I kidding, he dumped me cuz even though I was 23 I come from a very strict family and since I was living with my dad I still had a carefew :( not joking) but we always kept our eyes on eachother. Even though we tried to date other ppl it didn't work out and we finally got back together after 8 mo apart (and yes at this point I was living in my own apt lol). Soon after that Lee's bday came along and 4 weeks after that we discovered that we were expecting our beautiful son Logan. After a lot of ups and downs (work, him moving in, us moving to a different appt closer to his mother (:$) but in a nicer area, the baby arrival, me loosing my job as a manager in a big company and him finally getting back to his old job after so many laid offs) we still love eachother like we love our child (well almost lol, mothers out there will understand :P) and even though we had talked about marriage he finally formally proposed on christmas day... Now we are looking to make ends meet (hard to do with 1 income for 3 ppl) and at the same time have a beautiful (but as inexpensive as possible) wedding, our Wedding is on Sept 8th 2012 in CT and we are going for a country romantic garden feel and our colors are green, yellow and a splash of brown (all the above colors are going to be in different shades) and the reason that we decided on the different shades is because if I find something free or for sale in one shade I will not loose sleep over the fact that the linens don't match perfectly or that the vases are diferent... I think I am a size 16 (last time I checked lol ) and a size 9 1/2 for shoes and please all the candles and decorations you can spare will be greatly apreciated... I just want to plan a nice, fun wedding because as much as I am happy to do this, Lee is even more excited to celebrate our matrimony and have fun on that day... 


And I want to thank Everyone who is donating (even if it's not for me) because you are bringing a lot of joy to brides all over the country....


and yes I will post many many pics of whatever I get :P
