Donating Wedding Dress

Has anyone had success with donating their wedding dress ? Every place I find has a "not older than 5 years" rule and mine is coming up on 10 years.

I'd like to bring it somewhere and not spend money shipping it if possible.

TIA !

How do they know how old it is?
Do they ask for proof?

Donating Wedding Dress

My friend donated her dress to a company that makes gowns for babies that are stillborn and are buried in them. She used a company on Long Island (I don't know the name) but there are companies that are all over the country if you wanted to ship it.
A lot places call them Angel Gowns.

ETA: She used this company

Thanks! I was hoping someone could wear it but I might have to go this route.
