Progress of our Bridal Gown Gemach

We have 3 of our dresses sponsored for dry cleaning and pledges for a further 3-4 dresses. Not sure when the pledges will come in. In working on how to bring in the necessary funds to set up our bridal gown Gemach, I decided to do a little research of what a good bridal gown store looks like. I found some lovely places and it is giving me lots of ideas. 

The good side of that is it provides inspiration to keep on with the work required to succeed in this task. The challenge is that we will probably have to revisit our target and make a larger goal. Oh dear, if it has taken us 11 days to come up with 4 donations that will cover dry cleaning of 3 dresses, how are we to reach a larger goal?

For a little fun, a few days ago a friend mentioned that we will be needing more mirrors than just one portable one. "The more the better" was her advice. 

Yesterday, someone donated a mirror and it made me smile.  It seems Hashem heard the "more the better", now we need this expanded to be full length mirrors that we can arrange for Kallot to see what they look like in a bridal gown.

With all this in mind, it's time to get back to networking, making phone calls etc.

If you have not yet seen our campaign, please visit, read up on what we are doing, make a donation and share with your friends.

Just for fun, please post at the bottom here what your ideal bridal store experience would be. You can also email me if you prefer to keep your thoughts private and not online.

Have a blessed day and do come back to hear more of the progress in our bridal gown Gemach
