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!

Lorna- what kind of veil did you need? I have an elbow length in ivory I made. It's not super great quality but it's not hard to work around!

Just an idea...Add the date your getting married


I'm getting married July 30th 2011 but if I see any brides needing things AFTER that date then we can start to make arrangements. I have found some gorgeous accessories and stuff. Just sayin :)

This is such a great idea.  Could a group be created just for this?  I am wanting to participate, but we do not have an exact date yet :-\, but we are hoping to set one soon.

SoontobeMrsB - I have a single tier shimmer ivory tulle chapel length veil with a cut edge. It's just on a comb with no embellishment at all.

Here's my story:


Fi and I have been together for the past 6 years, We meet in collage, and have been together ever since. We had a hard time at first due to the fact that we are different religion, and his mother and grand mother just didn't like me to much( that changed). In the past 6 years we have moved 7 times, and lived in 7 different apartment less then a year in each, at one point we had to move in with my in-laws b/c We just couldn't pay our monthly bills.Right now we both work ok jobs, but we live about 1.5 hr each way. We have been trying to get married for the past three years, but we never wanted help from anyone, So it took Fi A long time to save up for my ring. once we had the ring now came the issue with paying for the wedding, my parents can't help, and FI family isn't able to either. Since we got engaged we have had a hard time. My brother had to have a major back surgery to re-place his spine with a metal rod, My mother was told that she is diabetic and has to use insulin the rest of her life, my Mother in law fell in a supermarket and hasn't worked in a year and had to have a back operation as well, Fi father had a kidney translate, I got told I had two bulged disk in my upper neck and may not be able to carry my kids EVER, and Fi grandmother has passed away. So these past months have been a struggle to keep our head straight, let alone save for the wedding. Right now we have nothing but my dress, We haven't payed ANYTHING!!!! and we don't know where we are going to get the money. but we have hope that we will get a break and have good luck for a couple of months.


Our wedding is a winter wonderland New Years Eve wedding(12/31/2011), It is the first and only wedding in my family, and the last wedding on Fi side. like every one else I have imagined my wedding for years, and now the fact that I will have to give up many of my dream to marry my best friend before the new year is a reality, but it ok as long as at the end of the night I have his name, I just hope it happens! I'm looking for a white veil and fur wrap. But I don't have anything but ideas! I'm a dress size 6/8 shoe size 8/8.5. if you have anything that is winter/snowflack and you would want get it out of your way please think of me.

I have a tiara to give away right away. Its missing a couple of the pearls but they should be easy to replace. Its gorgeous but i have decided to go with a fascinator. It cost a little over $200.00 a couple of years ago. Its a bit tarnished but im sure i can fix that before sending it out. sorry about the crappy pics (phone)

KatieGipson That what I was quoted. I'm not spending that. we are thinking of having a pot luck thing, unless we come across some money.

Tanya - I got married on NYE in 2009.  I have a faux fur wrap that you can have.  It doesn't have the bow on it anymore.

I think this is a great idea and starting it as a group would be good, that way if the post drops off the first page, nobody has to go looking for it, people can post what they have and people can post what they need.
