Celebrate The Royal Wedding For A Good Cause!
Dress like a Royal bride, for a fraction of the price, as Save the Children and Mary Portas’ Living and Giving stores stock up on designer wedding attire.
World leading fashion designers Matthew Williamson, Stewart Parvin (Queen’s dress maker), Eleanor Ofori and Jenny Packham have all stitched their seal of approval to Save the Children Week by donating wedding dresses and accessories, to be sold for a fraction of their original price.
To celebrate Save the Children Week, which happens to coincide with the Royal wedding week (25th April – 1st May 2011), the charity has decided to transform six of their shops into ‘reduced price designer wedding boutiques’. These shops , two of which will include TV retail guru Mary Portas ‘ hugely popular Living and Giving shops in London and Edinburgh, will be offering brides-to-be the chance to be married in a designer frock for a fraction of the price.
With doors opening at 09:30 am on Wednesday 27th April Save the Children’s aim is to offer brides-to be the chance to wed in designer style at up to 60% off the designer price tag, whilst raising vital funds for the charity. There are a number of designer pieces from the likes of Amanda Wakeley, Dillon Wallwork, Emmy Shoes, Benjamin Roberts and Caroline Charles, all accessible to any bride-to-be-on-a-budget.
Mary Portas said:
“It may be Kate Middleton’s special day but this week Save the Children are giving you the chance to have your own royal wedding without the royal price tag. Our shops are filled with fabulous dresses and accessories and we would love you to make that all important purchase whilst helping the most vulnerable across the world at the same time.”
Save the Children Week is taking place to raise funds for children as part of the No Child Born Without a Chance Campaign. Every donation is precious and will help fund supplies for children all over the world.
Save the Children’s Bridal Shop at Mary’s Living & Giving shop for Save the Children Week will be held from Wednesday 27th April – Sunday 1st May.
