Fairytales do come true!
I am so blessed this little gem exists. Everyone who works here is beyond wonderful. You can see they truly care about their work and you as a customer. Between the cost of the dress to the alterations I was mind blown! It really helped keep me in budget and I was contributing to a good cause. At the end of the night I didn't even want to take my dress off! Thank you Brides Project.Sent on 05/19/2021

The lady’s at The Brides Project were amazing. From the second I walked in the door they were helpful and accommodating. I would recommend everyone go there to find a high quality dress for an affordable price. It made me even happier to know the proceeds from my dress were going to directly impact a family’s life in my community.Sent on 01/07/2020

A great organization!
This organization is an incredible opportunity to provide for the community and purchase a beautiful wedding dress (while saving money!). They have a great variety of sizes and styles to choose from. It was my first trip dress shopping, and I was determined that it would also be my last. They helped make that happen! They also accommodated my larger-numbered entourage, which was important to me, and I am very grateful. I will recommend this organization to anyone!Sent on 10/30/2019
