Yipee! Beth wants to give away her organic, silk strapless wedding gown that she infused with joy during her Memorial Day wedding in Boston.
My dress has been hanging in the back of my closet since our wedding night, and I've been having a really hard time deciding what to do with it. I don't want to keep it (or rather, feel it's so impractical and wasteful to do so), but also don't just want to sell it. I figured I'd try to find a bride who would put it to good use (and hopefully pass it along too?).
Our wedding was awesome, and we put a ton of thought into how we wanted to kick off our marriage. We were wed at a nonprofit on the banks of the Charles River by my uncle and went totally local with food, drinks, and vendors. We also tried to do all used decor (I collected glass vases and then we bought some flowers from a local farm) and made a gift to the MSPCA's pit-bull adoption program in lieu of favors (we rescued our pitbull, who also walked down the aisle with us).
I would love to give the dress away to someone who's also committed to forgoing the wedding industrial complex in favor of supporting local goods, charities, and sustainability.
It's white natural silk (so in between a bright white and an ivory), draped sweetheart bodice, drop waist (she learned all of those terms while wedding dress shopping...). It also has a short train that she bustled. It was bought as a size 10, but then altered to fit her 4/6 street size, 5'8" inch frame (about 36" hips, 29" waist, 36" bust). The dress was hemmed to 5'10". She wore it with 2.5" shoes. It's yours for the price of shipping!
