We all know I like weddings, right? I’ve planned and helped plan so many over the last 10+ years that I’ve always felt like I may have missed my calling. Today I was scrolling through my RSS feed blogs and stumbled upon a mention of Wish Upon A Wedding from the Green Orchid Events blog.
I immediately clicked the link, added them on Facebook, followed them on Twitter, and submitted an application to become a volunteer with a local chapter. Well, no, I immediately looked to see if I could donate my wedding gown, then submitted my app. Priorities and all… 🙂
To quote the GOE blog:
“Wish Upon A Wedding was founded in San Francisco, CA, in January of 2010, by a group of wedding and business entrepreneurs and is America’s FIRST nonprofit wedding wish granting organization, producing weddings and civil union ceremonies at destinations across the United States for individuals facing terminal illness, regardless of sexual orientation.”
Can someone say amazing organization??!
the cap, gown, tassel & Master’s hood order has been placed! i’ll have them within the week. still dunno if i’m walking though…
YEAH! I’m still contemplating walking, though likely I won’t be. There are many reasons behind this and I’m weighing all my options.
Also also, I am the newest blogger on TweetMyWedding! I will be doing a weekly blog post every Tuesday leading up to our wedding.
Yay! It's fixed!
Congrats on ordering your regalia… I'm working our graduation this year so its always exciting seeing the students in their new hoods!
