Where to Donate a Wedding Gown in Milwaukee, WI?

I'm having my wedding celebration in Milwaukee, WI in a week. While I understand the sentimental reasons for preserving and keeping my wedding gown, it's just not something I want to do -- I don't want to spend a bunch of money to preserve a gown just to hang it in a closet for the next 30 years, especially since my daughters (if I have any) probably won't wear it, anyway. I'm much more interested in giving it a second life in the wedding of another woman who can't afford a brand new dress, but I'm having a hard time finding a place to donate wedding dresses in Milwaukee. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this?

  • I'm a big favorite of the American Council for the Blind thrift shop, if you feel like checking them out.  If you're looking for a specifically wedding-based donation place, though, you should follow kd.joseph's advice and search Google.  :)
