Brides at Work Day for Breakthrough Cancer – Friday 17th September 2010

17th September 2010

Friday 17th September 2010 is wear your dress to work day.  It’s your chance to dust off your wedding dress for another very special chance to wear it with pride.   If you are getting married this summer (as many of our readers will be) then its the perfect excuse to leave it hanging in the wardrobe for a little longer after the big day before packaging it away for posterity.  Why would you want to make a fool of yourselves in front of your work colleagues I hear you scream… well there is a very good reason of course.  They will be sponsoring you and if you can persuade your work friends to do the same you will no doubt be sponsoring them too.  You will all look silly together and Breakthrough Cancer, the organising charity,  will receive your well sponsorship funds.

Brides at Work

Breakthrough Cancer is a pioneering charity saving lives and changing futures, through research, campaigning and education – removing the fear of breast cancer for good.   With the support of the National Wedding Show the charity is calling on all your support.  There are no strict rules so if you can find a dress (and it fits) then you can be a part.

The whole of the wedding party can get involved too.  Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to take part.  Whether they are the bride, groom, bridesmaid, bestman, mother of the bride or usher they can wear their outfits to work too.                    ……. Breakthrough website
