If you’re a long-time reader of Bridal Musings (thanks for sticking with us!), you’ll know that fighting child marriage is a cause very close to our hearts.
Every year 15 million girls are married before they are 18. That’s 28 girls every minute.
Last year for International Women’s Day, we teamed up with UNICEF to launch our End Child Marriage campaign and raise awareness for the issue among the wedding industry and couples in parts of the world where getting married is an occasion filled with excitement, joy and love.
The campaign was a huge success (it went a bit viral!) so this year, as a new batch of brides and grooms plan their weddings, and International Women’s Day approaches on March 8th, we wanted to bring attention to the issue once again.
And we wanted to share how you can use your wedding to do real good for girls at risk of child marriage, with Brides Do Good.
