Prayer Flags: A Message of Hope

Amy Kuschel. Breast Cancer Fund prayer flag.

Our prayer flags arrived!

As one of our favorite non-profits, and a partner in our “Gowns that Give” program, the Breast Cancer Fund works diligently to expose and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Their preventative research alone inspires and gives hope, but we recently learned about “Climb Against the Odds”. We are blown away by its truly beautiful gesture.

Join Our Team!

Giving is Good

Amy Kuschel Gives Back by Supporting Local Charities

Giving back is important to us, and it feels really terrific to support our favorite charities.  

A few years ago, we started a philanthropy program as a way for us to give back to our community.  With each new collection we select a "giving gown" to match to one of our beloved non-profits.  Every time a bride orders one of these charitable gowns, we put $50 towards that charity's annual donation.  It's an excellent way to support the amazing efforts of our charity partners - and our brides love that their wedding gown purchase contirbutes to a worthy cause.  Everyone feels good!

We're Hiring!
