Why a pink wedding dress?

There are a few dresses at St. Anthony's that stray from the traditional coloring of what most people consider "bridal" in this area. Most people who I've seen come into the store overlook or decide not to go for these dresses or even give them a chance... However, I want to take this opportunity to tell you a story about one of them...

Imagine a bride planning her wedding she thinks about the dress she wants to wear and she realizes she wants to wear a color that brings her joy on this joyful day and that color happens to be pink. Fast forward a few months and the pandemic hits. Most of her plans for the wedding get changed and rearranged...except...most importantly, she still has her very supportive groom and... The pink dress. And she does feel joyful as she puts it on and walks down the aisle to marry her person she's chosen.

And she has donated that dress in hopes someone else can enjoy it.

So I suppose the question now is, why not a pink dress?

Never been to St Anthony's?

Here's some info!

We have over 600 wedding dresses of a variety of styles and sizes all donated and under or close to 200 dollars! If you have a wedding dress under 10 years old in good condition you want to donate feel free to drop it off. If you're looking for a dress, this is a good place to start!

If you're coming to try on dresses please first make an appointment on the website (day/times available Sat 10-3). Once you made an appointment at the day and time scheduled (please contact us via email if there are any changes to your schedule or timing at [email protected]) come in with a mask and ready to look for dresses!

You will be able to have free rein of the store (within reason), which is organized by dress size, pick as many dresses as you want to try on and show yourself in them off!

We are a non-profit organization looking to support people trying to have a joyful wedding dress shopping experience on a budget. We completely rely on volunteers to make this work. If you'd like to support us by volunteering please also email [email protected].

Hope to see you there!

Recent 5* Review from a Beautiful Bride this past Saturday.
Title: Better Than Kleinfeld
"Having worked in luxury fashion in NYC, I was as picky as it gets when it comes to bridal gowns. Previously visited Kleinfield, Saks Fifth Avenue Bridal, Claire Pettibone, Anne Barge, and Ellie’s Bridal, St. Anthony’s had the best timeless and unique selection of dresses. Instead of looking like any other 2021 brides (similar bridal styles for the season) you get to browse through a wide selection of modern and vintage dresses to create your own vision. Well made gowns, many customized dresses with hand stitching details and beautiful lace are available at 90-95% off. I found dresses from Vera Wang, Pronovias, Zac Posen, Jenny Yoo, and Heidi Elnora (AL based custom atelier). No where else can you find well made gowns at a price less than a veil, not to mention Coco and Lydia were amazing. Knowledgeable, accommodating, caring and most of all honest. You can tell they (they are all volunteers) genuinely place your happiness as the priority, not their commissions. If you want an authentic experience with good people and amazing dress selection, do check out St. Anthony’s."

Top 10 Things 2Do for Brides2B while on Quarantine
1. Work on Your Relationship: whether you're separately quarantined or stuck in close quarters, there is one thing that's going to be the same now and when you're married - you're going to have to work on your relationship no matter what the circumstances are. This is the PERFECT time to strengthen your relationship. Saying, "This is hard," sharing, "I'm scared," asking, "When will this end?" ... these are honest and open questions that SHOULD be spoken between you two.
2. Guest List/Invitations/Seating Chart: work out the guest list. (But take breaks if it gets stressful.) These tasks are GREAT for quarantine b/c you have the time, and these take up a LOT of time. Dive in. Get them done, and whenever they need to be completed, you'll have them ready to go!
3. Vendor Selections: Review those proposals and contracts one more time. Have conversations about "What if's" since we are living one of those "what if" scenarios right now. (Again, if it's stressful, TAKE BREAKS!)
4. The Kiss: You know, the one after you're pronounced married? Yeah, that one 🙂 Have fun!
5. Imagine: Imagine your life together 10 years from now. Think about and talk about your dreams. If you can, work out a vision. Do you want to manage property? Run a business? Travel lots? Have a large family? Write a book? Working towards something is far better than fumbling. Plan it out now when you have time. Figure out steps and milestones.
6. Thank-You Notes: Write out your Thank-You Notes for the Engagement party and the Bridal Shower(s). You have the time.
7. Honeymoon: If it isn't planned, you've got time to browse.
8. Find a New Shared Hobby: Crosswords, Debt Free University, Extreme Couponing, Knitting, Break Dancing... there's YouTube, and it can be used to learn something new. Learn together. The best thing about time is that when there's a lot of unknowns on the other side of it, you have the freedom to make memories and spend time together with few deadlines. Your relationship is worth it.
9. Find and pre-fill out the name change, address change, marriage license application, and other documents you know you'll eventually need to do. Now's the time!
10. Wedding Programs: Write it now! Plan the songs, the words, the acknowledgments, the memorials, and the dedications. 🙂
We hope you all stay well. Please let us know if we can be of any support. We've got a lot of volunteers with TONS of experience, including wedding planners, counselors, seamstresses, etc. Engagement is unique - you're planning something big, and something big is happening in our world right now. Breathe, and reach out to your networks or to us. We are here, and we have time too.

We are closed until at least March 29th. Check here for updates. Fairfax County Recreational Centers are closed, so we are as well. Please say home for at least two weeks, please encourage your family members who are 60+ and who are vulnerable to self-quarantine until given the all-clear. Remind those in the most vulnerable categories that you know this virus has killed such a high percentage of those who are vulnerable who contract it and that you want to protect them and to celebrate with them at your wedding. Resources for Brides-2-B passing the time will be forthcoming... 'cause... what's a Bride to do when she's planning to have everyone healthy for her and her fiance's "I Do"? Here is a link to the Parks & Rec website to follow if/when things begin to open again.

A poem for this snowy day from Shel Silverstein in "Where The Sidewalk Ends"
"My Rules"
If you want to marry me, here's what you'll have to do:
You must learn how to make a perfect chicken-dumpling stew,
And you must sew my holey socks,
And soothe my troubled mind,
And develop the knack for scratching my back,
And keep my shoes spotlessly shined.
And while I rest you must rake up the leaves,
And when it is hailing and snowing
You must shovel the walk... and be still when I talk,
And -- hey -- where are you going?

LOL! Reads more like a formula for a marriage that definitely won’t work... we're glad the listener left quickly!

Why I Donated My Wedding Dress

What a story!!
“The St. Anthony's Bridal volunteer hands me a form to complete while admiring the dress I said good-bye to. She takes it out of the bag and immediately hands it to a bride-to-be who is trying on dresses for her upcoming May wedding. ‘You should stay and see her try it on,’ she says to us. I'm a little hesitant to see her in ‘my’ dress- how will I feel?”...

WOW! What an article! Read this with care... relationships meant for the long-haul require serious work, and this article really goes into the details. (Warning: some language, and 11 is not G-rated.)

Hey, guess what? I got married two weeks ago. And like most people, I asked some of the older and wiser folks around me for a couple quick words of relationship advice from their own marriages to make sure my wife and I didn’t s**t the (same) bed.

I can never thank you enough for all of you've done to make the celebration of my union feel magical and beautiful... and within budget!
The dress was a hit! Thanks for your help.
I remember when St. Anthony's was up in Rockville, MD; my daughter helped out there, and I had the inglorious-but-fun job of cleaning wedding and bridesmaid dresses, yes, cleaning. You would be amazed that such beautifully and intricately made dresses CAN be spot cleaned and then washed in a washing machine (cold water and gentle cycle). Those were fun times, and not only dresses but tablecloths were cleaned and washed, too. Many fine memories of that time. It's so wonderful that you all are still "in business" of providing the means for brides-to-be to have wonderful memories with little cost, if any. God bless you!
