We love to hear about people in the wedding community doing great things, and just discovered Wish to Wed, a nonprofit organization helping struggling people have a dream wedding.
Wish to Wed is a Snohomish, WA-based group helping make wedding dreams come true for couples life-threatening obstacles such as terminal illness. By providing granting dream weddings that covers all costs from the venue, to the catering, to the DJ, Wish to Wed creates an opportunity these couples would not otherwise receive as mounting healthcare bills sap all of their funds.
The organization was started by friends Sarah Swanson, owner of Eventful Moments, Tracy Stocker, owner of Hidden Meadows and Trail Side Wedding and Events, and Laineemeg Bridal shop owner Zerlinda Lochtie, who have pooled their knowledge and resources to grant wishes to couples in need. The friends are currently preparing their first wedding for a lucky couple - Laura Woods and her fiance Elliott Hansen.
The first bridal shows of the season are upon us, and we're so excited! Bridal shows are wonderful resources for brides, and they're also a lot of fun!
