It’s such a long time since I last posted (*hangs head in shame*) but I’m very happy to have another fantastic Follow That Dress story for you. Our first post about donating wedding dresses to Malawi was over a year ago now but the responses from generous-hearted brides are still coming in. Today, we’re sharing [...]

We heard Fiona’s story back in November and her wedding dress is now with Clare Clements waiting to make its way to Malawi. Today we’re sharing Lucy’s story. Early this month her email popped into our inbox – short and very sweet: I would like to donate my wedding dress to Malawi as per the [...]

We’ve been rather lax about updating our events page of late (big, big apologies to all those who asked us to list events and who we have disappointed by our incompetence in the event-listing arena) so we are mending our ways and bring you: Craft Central Gets Hitched.

It’s the last day! We made it – it’s been tough, and I have to tell you there have been a lot of very late nighters to get this done but here we are on Day 14 of Fairtrade Fortnight. It’s not just about the groom and his guys today – we’re looking at the [...]

And so we reach the final weekend of our Fairtrade Fortnight Wedding Challenge. What are we left with? Only the biggest challenge of all: THE DRESS. But don’t worry, we’re not completely bridecentric. Today we’re doing fair trade wedding gowns, tomorrow we’ll be looking at bridesmaid dresses and groomswear. Hey guys, we saved the best [...]

We are very excited to announce the first wedding dress donation through our Follow That Dress campaign. Fiona got married in 2009 and read our post Donate your wedding dress to Malawi. Hi, I have a wedding dress, veil and shoes that I would like to donate to the lady in Malawi (Joyce) if possible. [...]

We have spent this month profiling how your wedding can help charities, and, in turn, a few of the charities who might be able to help you, with their donation projects and gift lists. We have spoken about ‘spreading the love’ and passing the smile on from bride to bride. So we thought you might [...]

We know that buying your wedding dress from a charity shop is a good thing – but just how much of a good thing? To find out, we want to follow a wedding dress, if possible from the first donator to the final bride who decides she wants to keep it for her daughter. Whether [...]
