We all want the perfect wedding. When your life is missing one of the most important people...Our mother is truly the most important person to almost everyone. To be able to afford a wedding dress, experience pampering and a mother's tears when she first sees you in that beautiful dress should not be taken for granted.
Sadly my sister Stacia in-law lost her mother to cancer. It was a long battle and her mother was a caring, kind, free spirit. Stacia's mother would do anything for anyone.
Stacia will not have that moment or have her there to celebrate her day. We just want her to be able to get the dress she wants, her hair done, the perfect shoes and feel what its like to feel special on her wedding day. She truly never feels like she deserves it.
My sister in law is an amazing person, never getting anything new, always feeling like she doesn't deserve feeling appreciated. Never taking the time to appreciate herself or pamper herself. I mean EVER! Raising two beautiful kids and making ends meet. Telling them how wonderful her mother was. Stacia misses her mother everyday and is getting married next year. Only looking at used, cheap wedding dresses.
We want to do this for her. Even though her beautiful mother has passed, we want her to experience going with her sister in-laws and sister to look for the perfect wedding dress. She deserves it. Stacia deserves to feel special. Even though her mother is not here to do this with her, doesn't mean she should feel any less special. We of course do not have a lot of money and just want to try. If anyone could donate even three dollars, it would help us to give her the experience Stacia' s mother would have wanted for her.
