Supporting Love Gives Way


Houston Wedding Gowns - Whittington Bridal
We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with Love Gives Way  to help put an end to sex trafficking.  To show our support and commitment, we are donating 10% of all our sales February 14th & 15th to this great organization! We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to help aid in the restoration of victims of sexual exploitation.


Love Gives Way's mission is to rally the wedding community around organizations fighting sex trafficking. This happens when engaged couples book/hire Love Gives Way vendors for their wedding who then give back a portion of their profits to non-profit organizations that are based in their very own cities. Whittington Bridal is supporting the Houston’s faith-based volunteer organization, Redeemed Ministries. Redeemed Ministries focuses on the advocacy, outreach, and restoration of Victims of human trafficking who are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor.

Whittington Bridal and Love Gives Way believes that there's nothing more beautiful than when a couple decides to leverage their wedding day, which marks their selfless act of love and commitment to one another, in order to aid in the restoration of someone who has had a part of them selfishly stolen by another for their own gain.

We are also selling Love Gives Way & Whittington Bridal T-Shirts for $25. All proceeds will be donated to Love Gives Way.  Stop by the store to get your shirt and tell your friends!

♥ ♥Mr. & Mrs. Dupeire♥ ♥




1. Where did you get married?

Stockton Springs, Maine!





2. What was your first dance song?


                 "Marry Me"- by Train
                 The song he used to propose to me!






3. What was your favorite part of your wedding? 


The entire "destination" experience, for us and our guests. It was so great to know that while they all came to support us and our special day, they also got an amazing weekend of their own memories to take home as well.




Our venue! The setting was amazing, the food was delicious, and the staff were beyond friendly and courteous to ALL our guests.


Just know that you're going to be stressed the month of the wedding, and be prepared for it.  Make a battle plan with all the things you want to tackle in those weeks before the wedding, and follow it.  By doing this I was able to completely relax when we got to Maine (3 days before the wedding), knowing I already took care of everything!

1. Where did you get married?

Briscoe Manor in Richmond Texas!



2. What was your first dance song?


                 Always and Forever by Corey Morrow




3. What was your favorite part of your wedding? 

Getting to celebrate my marriage to my best friend and love of my life with all of our closest friends and relatives.




4. What are you glad you splurged on?

My dress and the photographer are definitely the two things that were worth so much more than any momentary amount!


5. What is your advice to future brides? 

The best advice I can think of is for brides to research vendors, find the ones they are comfortable with, trust their expertise and then try to relax! I had amazing vendors and all the work they put in made my part easy, and the results were even better than I could have imagined!!

♥ ♥Mr. & Mrs.  Klumpyan♥ ♥



1. Where did you get married?
Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place Washington. I am originally from Washington so we decided to have the wedding up there. Most of Bryan's family had never been to the Northwest so it was exciting to see them experience where I grew up.



2. What was your first dance song?


                     Stoney LaRue "Feet Don't Touch the Ground"




3. What was your favorite part of your wedding? 
Seeing all of our family and friends together in one place! The whole day was so fun and the weather was perfect...we couldn't have asked for a better day to get married.  




4. What are you glad you splurged on?

We are so happy that we splurged on our photographer, Amanda Lloyd. She is AMAZING and captured everything about our special day. Also our venue...our guests were blown away by the view, the food was delicious and having the ceremony and reception in the same place was a huge bonus! 



5. What is your advice to future brides? 

Plan early for little stress. Since we were planning the wedding from Texas, we literally had two days in December where we had to pick the cake, photographer, food, florist, linens, and the DJ. It was stressful at the time, but having that all finished 8 months before the wedding was awesome! It gave us a lot of time to work out the little details and we really didn't have to stress about anything leading up to the wedding!

2. What was your first dance song?


                     Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley




3. What was your favorite part of your wedding? 

My favorite part of the wedding was walking up the aisle and seeing Roger's expression. His smile was so sweet, and at that moment, I was overwhelmed with joy and love for this man.  



4. What are you glad you splurged on?

I'm totally glad I splurged on my dress! I absolutely love it and we got so many compliments. We're also happy we splurged on our photographer and venue for our reception. It all turned out so beautifully!


5. What is your advice to future brides? 

My advice to future brides would be to try not to worry too much about the small details. Be sure and take time and relax and put things in perspective for the wedding. It's important to enjoy the day because it'll go by fast.
