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!

This right here is why I love PW. Where else would I find such kind, giving ladies that don't even know each other in person but are willing to reach out and help each other?! I seriously love all of you :) Here's our story:


We are getting married pretty young (21) but we've been together over 6 years and are so ready! lol But as you can guess money has been a huge issue and I know there's no way I could ever have the wedding I want unless I waited.. But we aren't. Our parents are paying for mostly everything and we are trying to help as much as possible so they don't have to. So extra things that we don't technically need but want are pretty much out the door. So I could really use some help on decor. Our colors are damask, fuschia, black and white. We are going for a fun, flirty theme! I wear an 8.5 shoe.. I would love a fingertip veil with some crystal beadwork on it, I was thinking about making my own because they are so expensive but idk how it would turn out.. Thank you so much for doing this I hope we can do this again when my wedding is over so I can return the favor to a fellow PW bride!! :)

Most of you know our story, but John and I would be eternally grateful for anything that you girls are willing to help us out with.


I lost both of my parents before I turned 24 - my dad when I was four in a car accident, and my mom after a long battle with cancer (she was also remarried a very abusive man, so we weren't close pretty much my entire life). John's parents divorced when he was a child, and his dad never got over his mom. She passed away in a house fire when he was in high school.


We've got student loans that easily double the value of our home, and barely enough to cover our bills after we lost all of the money we had saved due to some bad tax advice last year.


As much as I'd like to do this all on our own, with six months left, a miniscule budget, and no manpower for our giant DIY list (other than John and I), I'm admitting that we need help. I'll be paying it forward after my September wedding! :)


EDIT: I forgot to tell you about the wedding! It's 9/10/11. It'll be outside at sunset (backyard wedding...just not our backyard anymore). Lots of candles. Colors are black, white, purple, silver, and damask.

yay, PW love!


I will have more after the wedding, but right now I have a hair piece I would be willing to give to someone. I got it from Hobby Lobby, it is silver. I ended up winning another one, and want to spread some love! I can't find a picture of it right now, but can take one tomorrow and update this post. <3 y'all are amazing!


 


EDIT: Here are the pics of the haircomb!




If anyone would like this, please PM me :)



Update: this item has been gifted. It is still a ways off from my wedding, so I will be posting new listings as more becomes available.

I don't have anything yet, but would love to pass things along after my wedding!  I agree this needs to be sticky so we don't lose it :)

Heeeeeeeeyy!


So I'm thinking I should probably part with a lot more than I had anticipated! Most of this can be found in my bio, too.


I have:


Big giant chandelier earrings
A purple and black sheath dress, size 6 and great for showers and rehearsals
Elbow length veil
Size 7 blue shoes with rhinestone buckle
Turqoise birdcage veil

If anyone has a great story and needs a pair of heels, lets hear it!


Of course not every shoes fits all! :) They are brand new never worn. They have been sitting in box since January. They look pinkish but they are a deep red. These were the first pair I bought for a contender for my reception shoes. Sorry for the pics, the shoes looks skooshed. :)
