The Brides Project

A small sea of white whisked past the front window of Old Town last Saturday afternoon; wedding dresses are meant to be worn many at once, I decided.

These not-exactly-brides were spreading awareness about The Brides Project, a nonprofit organization providing brides with a socially conscious, budget- and eco-friendly option for purchasing a bridal gown. Thanks to the generosity of brides and bridal salons, The Brides Project boasts a range of designers, including Vera Wang, Justina McCaffrey and Badgley Mischka (the not-brides were quick to explain that they were wearing dresses from the tackier end of the spectrum). Proceeds from the sales of these gowns benefit the Cancer Support Community of Ann Arbor.
