As a proud supporter, WeddingWire is thrilled to extend our partnership to the New York and St. Louis Chapters of Wish Upon a Wedding.

Each chapter is an integral part of this non-profit organization dedicated to providing weddings and vow renewals for individuals facing life-threatening illnesses and other serious circumstances. There are 22 chapters across the country that have granted a total of 47 wishes through partnerships with generous wedding professionals and fundraising efforts supported by community members and local engaged couples.

The newest chapter, New York, celebrated their launch on the eve of New York Bridal Market on Thursday, October 11th, 2012 at the Eventi Hotel. WeddingWire, the chapter’s media sponsor for the evening, was there in full force to welcome the newest addition to the wish-granting organization. Toting glamorous clutches courtesy of our partner, Judith Leiber, the WeddingWire team joined 250 of some of New York’s most notable wedding vendors in welcoming the New York Chapter to the industry.

Following an amazing event in the Big Apple, WeddingWire is equally excited to announce the third annual Blissful Wishes Ball hosted by the St. Louis Chapter. If you are in the St. Louis area, the chapter would love for you to join them on Sunday, December 2nd at Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in St. Charles for an evening of ‘Fire & Ice’ and making wishes come true!

The St. Louis Chapter was launched in 2010 as one of Wish Upon a Wedding’s founding chapters. With three wishes under their belt, the St. Louis team looks forward to granting their fourth wish in February of 2013. The Blissful Wishes Ball, one of three fabulous fundraisers, is a black-tie optional gala thrown to raise more awareness in the area and to celebrate the incredible wishes they have granted thus far.
