My Wedding Wish is an organisation where couples who are facing terminal illness can apply to receive a fully gifted wedding.
Wedding suppliers in Australia are pooling their resources to donate to My Wedding Wish and they are “making dreams come true”.
Since 2013, wedding suppliers on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Toowoomba have come together to gift over 10 weddings’ valued at over $250,000 combined, to couples who are battling terminal or life threatening illnesses.
Our suppliers are generous of spirit and ask for nothing in return, many do not ask for acknowledgements when the media becomes involved, and they donate their product or services because of their desire to give a hand out to couples in need. Founder, Celebrant Lynette Maguire, says a key value of My Wedding Wish is that “everyone deserves a beautiful wedding”. The suppliers agree!
My Wedding Wish is open to couples wanting to be legally married (*must be able to meet the legal requirements), same sex couples wanting a commitment ceremony, or married couples wanting a renewal of vows. The My Wedding Wish application can be downloaded here or obtained by emailing Lynette on email@example.com and all applications must be supported by medical proof of the illness.
My Wedding Wish does not gift weddings due to financial hardship or job loss. Applications are accepted all year.
Receipt of all applications is acknowledged by email and if successful, the My Wedding Wish team of suppliers are called upon to opt in or opt out – so package sizes and values may vary. Please read the terms and conditions on the application form.
