At Every Girls Dream, Inc. our mission is to provide a beautiful gown to brides undergoing financial hardship. Our goal is to match brides with a beautiful dress for their wedding day. These are very difficult economic times. By partnering with local benefactors we hope to give every bride a chance to gain the delight that every bride feels as her wedding day approaches.

Our selection process consists of five stages: a letter of nomination telling us your story, (by the bride, a friend of the bride or a relative), interview (with EGD staff), must provide proof of income, application fee, and scheduling (with our community partners).
