Brides do Good pop-up boutique raises £18,000 for charity

22 Feb 2017

Raising more than £18,000 to help end child marriage, Brides do Good's first ever pop-up boutique at Bicester Village was a huge success

Held for 10 days at Bicester Village, the Brides do Good pop-up boutique raised a grand total of £18,592.23 for charity.

With an aim to eradicate child marriage worldwide through charity partners Plan International and Too Young to Wed, Brides Do Good is a social enterprise that sells luxury pre-loved and sample designer wedding gowns to fund its work.

Brides- to- be from the UK, China, Brazil, Greece, India and the Middle East visited the boutique, which ran from February 9-19, to purchase their dream wedding dress

International designers included Alexander McQueen, Amanda Wakeley, Lela Rose, Elie Saab and Vera Wang. TV personality Louise Roe even donated her own wedding gown, which was bought by one lucky bride-to-be on the last day.

Chantal Khoueiry, founder of Brides do Good, said: “I am delighted that the first Brides do Good pop up boutique has proved such a success. We have helped brides-to-be from all over the world find their dream wedding dress and in turn the £18,592.23 that will be donated to our charity partners will make a significant impact to hundreds of vulnerable young girls."
