sparkle&pomp is entering the wonderful world of blogging and what better way to start then to talk about The Brides’ Project and our work with them. The Brides’ Project is a wonderful organization whose tag line says it all “fighting cancer, one dress at a time”. The Brides’ Project receives gown donations from bridal salons, corporate sponsors and other brides and resells them at amazing prices with all proceeds going to various cancer societies.
Please check out their website for more information www.thebridesproject.com
Helen, founder of The Brides Project, is a joy to work with and all the volunteers who work there match her enthusiasm and compassion. I had the pleasure of taking some outdated dresses and revamping them in hopes that these dresses would be given another chance and for a bride to fall in love with for her special day! Check out the before and after pictures below (you can click on each image to get a larger view). ENJOY!

I am very glad to be able to contribute to this great organization and excited to say that both the 5o’s style cocktail wedding dress and the modern, chic wedding gown have sold (the latter selling in just an hour after it’s arrival at the boutique!) and gone home with happy brides.
I like the 90′s one the best.
HOLY MOLY!! These dresses are just absolutely gorgeous! Great job Sparkle and Pomp! Keep up the good work and it is a wonderful cause that you are doing it for!
That is a crazy amount of work! It’s amazing what a good cause like The Brides Project can inspire. Keep it up!
