Do you love all things bridal? Would you enjoy helping a bride say "YES!" to her dress?
If you are someone who would enjoy assisting brides in preparation for their "big day," we invite you to join our volunteer team and help make a difference. We help low and middle income brides in the Washington Metropolitan Area create their dream wedding by providing discount gowns for $195, a seamstress who only charges our brides $165 no matter what is needed, DIY workshops, a magazine geared towards practical advice for brides on a tight budget, low budget formula books, and vendors who will take budgets of $10,000 or less seriously.
You will help engaged brides go through our inventory and pick out wedding gowns in the style and size she is looking to find. You will help brides find beautiful gowns and accessories. And, you will help brides rehang gowns on the appropriate size racks when they are done. Often brides are ecstatic at our inventory of over 400 gowns, and sometimes, that's a bit overwhelming. You'll help us and the brides navigate through the inventory to find THE dress.
What do we need from you as a volunteer???
We certainly need a friendly smile and a kind personality.
We have training videos so that our team of coordinators and volunteers can provide our Beautiful Brides with a consistent experience.
All we need from you is your desire to assist others and a commitment of 2 hours (up to 6 hours) of your time per week during our open hours.
