Donate your dress


Courtesy of Making Memories

If you're recently married and your gown is taking up precious closet space, consider donating the dress to a good cause. During the month of March, you can donate your wedding gown to local bridal consignment salon White Chicago during their fourth annual Dress Drive. Dresses will be then re–sold, with all of the proceeds going directly to Making Memories, a foundation that grants wishes to terminally ill breast cancer patients. In past years, White Chicago has raised $575,000 and they're hoping to double that amount this year. For more information on how to donate your wedding gown, click here.
