Would you like to donate a wedding gown?

Do you have an old wedding gown sitting in a closet? We would be thrilled to lovingly recreate your gown into burial garments. While not all of the garments will be used by Rest in His Arms for our abandoned children, they will be donated to families in need at area hospitals who experience the tragic loss of miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant death.  What an amazing gift to wrap a baby in a gown that knew nothing but love! 

It does not matter if the dress is old – we recently were blessed with a handmade gown that was 80 years old!  It does not matter how ornate or simple the gown is or what material it was made from.  Our seamstresses can work with just about any fabric.

We do ask that you wash the gown prior to donating it if it was not preserved.  Most gowns can be washed in the delicate cycle and hung to dry. Then, mark your gown with your name.

We gratefully accept wedding gowns, light colored bridesmaids and flower girl dresses, 1st Communion dresses and any other special occasion gown that is lighter in color.  Dresses can be mailed or dropped off to us at:

Rest in His Arms

1016 Woodland Drive

Wheeling, IL 60090


They may be left on the front porch if no one is available to answer the doorbell.


Then, if you are on Facebook, look for pictures of your gown and the delicate little angel gowns that will be made from it in this group -
