On Sunday, September 23rd, Once Upon A Time Weddings will be hosting a fall fashion show that will begin at 2pm. The proceeds from the fashion show will go towards endometriosis research.
We'll be showcasing many of our new gowns that have just arrived in our store, including two new lines exclusive to Once Upon A Time Weddings.
Orchard Clothing will be participating and showcasing some of their casual, everyday women's wear. They have the cutest stuff, so if you haven't yet check them out!
Tickets are on sale now for just $15 in advance. Purchase them here. Tickets are limited, so don't miss out!
Why endometriosis research? Because it hits home for our owner, Erin Bouchard. And because it effects so many women who suffer without answers. And because currently there is no way to diagnose endometriosis without surgery and we want to change that!
This is a little excerpt from owner, Erin Bouchard's blog, I am 1 in 10.
So little is known about endometriosis.
There is currently no way to diagnose endometriosis without laparoscopic procedure.
Doctors don’t understand the illness.
My family doctor should have known.
He should have talked to me more about the symptoms I had.
Instead he told me that endometriosis has nothing to do with fertility.
Years of pain.
Years of frustration.
Years of not having answers.
Family doctors need to be educated about endometriosis and infertility. They need to know the symptoms and what can be done to help alleviate the pain. They need to stop believing that pain in periods in normal and expected.
