One of the blessings amidst the worry and tragedy of COVID-19 has been stories of everyday people serving their communities. The Lowcountry is filled with good-hearted helpers doing what they can. Today on The Wedding Row, we wanted to shine a light on ways our very own Charleston wedding community in particular is offering coronavirus support.
Brackish is known for their much-adored feather bowties (practically a necessity for Lowcountry groomsmen). Like most other local companies, the coronavirus has left their employees underutilized. Now, Brackish is using that loss for medical staffers gain.
With a surplus of fabric and staff hours, this team has been creating and then donating masks to hospitals in our region and around the world. Plus, when you place an order, they’ll include two masks for your own safety.
All purchases help support those efforts and keep their team working. So, please check out their goods right here. Ladies, don’t miss their earrings!
Kate McDonald started her fashion career with a popular choice in Charleston for bridesmaids and prom dresses, LulaKate. Then after her own wedding, she started designing bridal gowns for clients under a brand new label, Kate McDonald Bridal.
This wedding dress designer has been repurposing donated wedding garment bags into masks. And she’s currently recruited 30 people to cut and sew along with her.
You can contribute to their efforts here on their GoFundMe.
Maude Couture makes eco-friendly wedding and party dresses right here in Holy City. They’re all about that upcycle and recycle. Not only have they turned their sewing know-how into medical mask making, but they’ve also organized other community members to do the same.
Be sure to visit their website support this local business as they support us.
Salthouse Catering is a farm-fresh, full-service caterer in Charleston. (In fact, you’ll find them frequently featured in real weddings on The Wedding Row.) Here’s their unique promotion to keep their employees working and to feed first responders. When you book a future party package, they’ll also deliver ready-made meals to first responders at local hospitals on your behalf.
Without further ado … your options:
To book, call 843.577.7847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also mention, “A Party You Can Feel Good About.”
