Wedding Wednesday!

15 Feb

With the recent passing of my friend Matt who lost his year-long battle with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, it really opened my eyes to how short life can be and how much many of us take life for granted.  I stumbled upon the Wish Upon A Wedding organization last spring when I was looking for jobs post-graduation and was amazed to read about such a great organization. 

Wish Upon A Wedding is the first non-profit organization that provides weddings to couples facing life-altering circumstances or terminal illnesses.  The organization takes care of all the details that go into a wedding that these couples often don’t have the time, energy, or money to do so on their own.  Wish Upon A Wedding makes it so couples can relax and enjoy their special day, by asking for donations from wedding professionals.  If you are in the wedding or event industry and want to apply to be a “wish granter” so you can provide your goods and services to amazing couples on their special day, please check out the Wish Upon A Wedding website to get involved

Not in the wedding or event industry but still want to do something? You can incorporate Wish Upon A Wedding into your wedding with their complimentary “In Lieu Of Gifts” or $1 “Favor” cards.  You can also volunteer with a local chapter (Boston was started last summer!) or host your own fundraising event!
