Wedding dresses are the Rolls Royce of fashion and few women get to try on more than a handful of wedding gowns in a lifetime, some never get that experience. For a Rolls Royce  fee we are going to throw wedding gown dress-up parties for the rich and famous, or just plain rich and dying to play with some wedding gowns. At our intimate bridal- themed parties a group of ten women will get their make-up done, tip a glass of champagne, try on wedding dresses, have some fashion photography taken while spending a few hours with the Brides of Eden who have all survived domestic violence and have some rich stories and sage advice to share, while slipping into a few gowns and veils and hitting the Eden snack table themselves.

I feel giddy as a school girl as I plan our first Brides of Eden dress-up party. Having down-home sparkles and high-heels, wedding dresses and veils, girlie-kinda-fun, while getting women of all demographics together to provide greenhouse domes for our food banks and domestic violence education for would-be young brides makes my heart sing.

A weekend of dress-up parties in the Governor’s Suite at the Montage in Los Angeles and the Brides of Eden will forever change at least 50 women’s lives and raise enough money to donate dome gardens to 3 food banks right out of the shoot. Those dollars will also pay our Brides of Eden’s salaries, some of whom have never totally recovered financially from the devastation that domestic violence brought to their lives, and allow them to speak publicly to prevent abusive relationships for current and future brides.

But mostly we are gonna have a girlie good time playing dress-up. Who’s in? We are currently booking parties for the weekend of June 14, 15 and 16 in Los Angeles. For further details contact Denise @
