What’s Your Wedding Dress Doing?

Exqusite Weddings & Special Occasion is very proud to anounce that we are the Liverpool Wedding Dress Ambassador for the amazing charity Gift of a Wedding

Gift of a Wedding provides free wedding services to people with a terminal or life shortening illness, regardless of age, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. Suppliers of wedding goods and services donate items or services to enable Gift of a Wedding to create weddings for couples who do not have the time or finances to arrange their own weddings due to their illness.

You can find out more about them in their video here and also hear about some of the many beautiful weddings they have arranged since 2014 on their blog

As the Liverpool Wedding Dress Ambassador, we seek out and collect dresses to be made ready for Gift of Weddings brides at short notice.

Is your dress or that of someone you know sat in the attic or roof-space gathering dust or even worse, turning yellow? If it is, why not consider letting it do some good instead? Your wedding dress is probably one of the most important and expensive items of clothing you will ever purchase, but what if your dress, which you may never wear again, could make a wedding dream come true for a bride with terminal illness. You never know it could also be “the one” for another bride to purchase in exchange for big donation. How great would that be!

5 Reasons To Donate Your Dress

If you’re still not sure whether to donate your dress, here are 5 great reasons:

  • It will give you a warm fuzzy feeling knowing you have done some good
  • It will be a good way to help Gift of a Wedding fundraise
  • It will help to give a terminally-ill person the wedding day of their dreams
  • It could end up being the wedding dress of a terminally-ill bride’s dream
  • It will help them raise money from the tax man
Did you know that £2+£2=£5 when you donate to charity? It’s true!

Donating your wedding dress to Gift of a Wedding will help them raise lots of money towards the wedding of a terminally ill person. But we think the most impressive thing is that your dress will help them earn lots of money from the tax man as well. For every pound they make from the sale of your dress the tax man will give an extra 25p. So for example if your dress was sold for £500 Gift of a Wedding would actually make £625 from the extra 25% they could collect from the tax man. How good does that sound?

We hope we’ve convinced you to let go of your wedding dress for a good cause. Donating your dress is easy, all you have to do is complete the short donation form on their website and Exquisite Weddings & Special Occasions can either collect it from you or you can drop it off to us. It’s that simple!

Thank you so much x x x x



Preloved or not to preloved?

Choosing your wedding dress can be tough! With such an array of designers, styles and fabrics to choose from. With the cost of weddings in the UK there’s now also the choice of Preloved. So why choose Preloved?

Simple, it’s a savvy, eco-friendly and cost-effective choice when you want a fabulous designer wedding dress without the designer price tag. There’s so many places online to buy a Preloved wedding dress, however, almost every bride still wants to have the experience of dress shopping and trying before you buy, and why shouldn’t you!

Bridal Reloved Liverpool sells immaculate pre-owned wedding dresses. Their dresses are either brand new, ex-sample or worn once and professionally cleaned. Bridal Reloved Liverpool wants to help people spend less on their wedding without compromising on design, style and class, which is why they only sell top designers.

Vera Wang – Maggie Sottero – Ian Stuart – Justin Alexander – Stewart Parvin to name just a few.
