You're The Bride Supports Wish Upon a Wedding



Wish Upon a Wedding is a charity that was founded in the San Francisco bay area in January 2010.


It's Mission:

Wish Upon a Wedding is the world's first nonprofit wedding wish granting organization, dedicated to providing weddings for individuals facing life-threatening illness, regardless of sexual orientation, at destinations across the United States.

There are currently 16 chapters in the United States (the Michigan chapter is launching this year!). The organization relies on volunteers, and there are currently some 2,000 nationwide. To qualify for a wish, the recipients must be 18 or older, legal citizens of the United States, and one person must have been diagnosed with less than three years to live.

Wish Upon a Wedding grants three types of wedding wishes:

Boutique Wish:

This type of wish is for wish recipients looking for an intimate event.

Includes: wedding planner, venue, caterer, rental company, photographer, videographer, cake, officiate, florist, stationery designer, DJ/musicians, hair/makeup, transportation as determined by WUW.

May also include: lighting design, entertainment vendors, event designer, gown {s}, tuxedo {s}, child care. If time allows, other Wish Granters may be selected, based on the wish recipients’ vision, and the available resources of WUW.

Total Number of Guests including Recipients: 25 people

Romantic Wish:

This type of wish is for wish recipients looking for a larger event to include friends and family.

Includes: wedding planner, venue, caterer, rental company, photographer, videographer, cake, officiate, florist, stationery designer, DJ/musicians, hair/makeup, & transportation as determined by couple and WUW.

Urgent Wish:

On a case by case basis, urgent wishes may be granted. This type of wish is often urgent in nature and involves and individual or couple too sick to leave their bed, whether in home care, hospice care, or hospital care. The wish recipient has been diagnosed as having six months or less to live.

Total Number of Guests including Recipients: 10 people
