Frequently Asked Questions

Are you accepting dress donations at this time?

We are currently accepting white, ivory or cream wedding gowns only on a limited basis. We are not accepting the following dress styles: bridesmaids dresses, special occasion dresses, Christening or flower girl dresses.

~Disclaimer~ We request a current picture, because some gowns just do not age well over time, even if they have been preserved. Some styles or materials we are unable to create gowns from.

If you are interested in donating a gown, please email us a current picture of your gown to us at angelgownsofwny@gmail.com .

When will photos of my dress be added to your Facebook Photo Album page?

Photos are taken as the dress is accepted and dismantled, and an Album with the Donor’s name is added to our Facebook page.  After they have been transformed, pictures will be added of the Angel gowns, suits and wraps.

We apologize that we cannot answer every inquiry as to how long it will be before your dress is transformed, but we do ask for your patience and understanding as we work hard to help our Tiny Angels. Please periodically check back to see if your photo album has been created and for updates to it. We are unable to email or notify you when pictures are added to your album.

  • Disclaimer:  Due to the overwhelming number of donated gowns that we have received,  there may have been some missing or misplaced tags.  Please check our Anonymous folders for any missing gowns. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Do I get a tax receipt for my donation?

All donations are tax deductible. Please contact us if you need a receipt.
