Charitable Wedding Ideas

Purchasing a wedding gown from The Bridal Garden is one way to spread the joy of your wedding because proceeds from your gown directly benefit disadvantaged children in New York City.

Some brides have also asked guests to donate to The Bridal Garden instead of gifts. If you would like to make a charitable donation to The Bridal Garden, or would like to invite your wedding guests to do so, please contact Geraldine Brower.

Fundraising Events

MacKenzie-Childs partnered with The Bridal Garden for an evening of whimsical fun and fashion.

 

The organization has raised much of its vitally needed funds at various fundraisers, including its exciting “Paradise Ball.”  Galas have featured a cocktail hour and a seated dinner with continuous dancing.  We’ve included some of the moments from prior Paradise Ball events.
