Donate a Dress, Make a Prom Wish Come True!

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

Remember prom? How amazing it was, for maybe the first time ever, to slip on an incredible gown, drape yourself with jewels and feel like the most beautiful woman in the world for one night?

Well, you can help metropolitan area girls make their own prom dreams come true just by donating bridesmaid and evening dresses to the Long Island Volunteer Center for their annual Prom Boutique!

This year, LIVC is in particular need of beautiful prom gowns, especially those in larger sizes. Serving Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Nassau and Suffolk students, LIVC’s Prom Boutique has been approached by an extraordinary number of schools due to extreme hardship from Superstorm Sandy. Unfortunately, fewer businesses are in the position to donate gowns as in years past.

We’re proud to say Bridal Styles is donating jewelry and accessories again this year, but even prouder that all of the women at Bridal Styles Boutique are raiding their closets for prom dresses to pass on. We hope our beautiful friends and customers will do the same!

Below is information on how, when and where to donate dresses.

Give New Life to Bridesmaid Dresses and Jewelry

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Every year, the Long Island Volunteer Center (LIVC) collects dresses and accessories to host a Prom Boutique. Underprivileged teen girls from across Long Island dying to go to prom in a fabulous dress and dripping in sparkling jewelry get to choose exactly what they dream of, free of charge.

At Bridal Styles Boutique, we know a thing or two about the importance of spectacular accessories and feeling like a princess! This year, when LIVC requested donations of anything girls would need for prom, including gowns, dressy purses, fancy shoes, and jewelry, we knew just what to do.  Owners and staff pitched in and together we gathered up lots of  jewelry to contribute to the Prom Boutique.

In 2010, 1,200 girls from 60 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations benefited from the event, so we can only imagine how many happy ladies got glamorous this year!
