You’ve decided on a destination wedding, now it’s time to search for the perfect dress. While having a destination wedding can get expensive on its own, you would like to find a dress that won’t break the bank, but will also be the designer brand you want. Look no further as Brides do Good will help you and other destination wedding brides to find an affordable designer destination wedding dress, while also making a difference in the world.

For destination wedding brides, they already think outside the box when it comes to a traditional wedding so why not continue that trend by going a different direction when choosing a wedding dress?

Launched in the fall of 2016, Brides do Good, founded by Chantal Khoueiry, offers brides affordable prices and the most beautiful designer wedding gowns, while contributing to non-profits. Designer brands that are offered include:

  • Vivienne Westwood
  • Diane Von Furstenberg
  • Oscar De La Renta
  • Valentino Marchesa
  • Vera Wang
  • And many more…

You must be wondering, how does this all work? Well, let me tell you. Through Brides do Good’s online store and various retail locations, destination wedding brides can choose from hundreds of wedding gowns that were worn by past brides as well as choose from gowns donated by bridal designers. Some of the most sought after wedding designers, Vera Wang for example, have donated beautiful gowns so you will be sure to find the one for you. Additionally, Brides do Good has opened the door to accessories designers in order to help brides complete their look easily.

If you want to make a difference in the world, this is a small way to do it. Brides do Good sends a third of each sale to charities, such as Plan International and Too Young to Wed, which help fight against child marriages. Also, if you have just come back from your destination wedding and are willing to contribute your beautiful dress to the cause, then you can do so. “If you decide to sell your gowns after the wedding, try to make sure it is going to a good home,” says Livia Firth, wife of English actor Colin Firth and founder of sustainable solutions consultancy, Eco-Age. If you choose to take this step, then one third of the sale from your dress will go to you, one third to Brides do Good and one third to charity.
