New Life for Your Wedding Gown

Do you have a beautiful wedding gown hanging in your closet that you don't know what to do with? Please consider donating it to the Women of Hope. As part of sustaining the ministry of the Women of Hope, we are going to be renting out wedding gowns.

Weddings are a very big deal in Nigeria. Brides want to look their absolute best. We know that we definitely have a market for wedding gown rental. Currently we have five wedding gowns that we have purchased from second-hand stores in the U.S.

The ladies I work with had a wonderful time trying them on. They are all dreaming of the day they will wear one.

Here are a few specs on what we're looking for:
* gowns from the last 20 years that are still in good condition
* no plunging necklines or completely open backs.
* we also need veils and any other accessories.

Most of the wedding gowns we have are size 5/6. We could really use some that are larger. You can contact me by clicking on "View my Profile" and then clicking on my email. I will be in the U.S. this summer and would love to bring a lot of wedding gowns back with me.

Tell your friends. Get the word out! What a great way to get some more life out of that beautiful wedding gown. Your gown will be a blessing to many women in Nigeria as well as a blessing to this ministry.

Come visit us when you're here--your mom and I found a GREAT second hand shop with lots of selection. They also gave us gowns at 1/2 price when we told them what we were buying them for!

Plus... we just love when you visit! :)

See you soon!
