SWP Gives Back

Each year Society of Wedding Professionals selects a local nonprofit to give back to, but year year SWP is proud to announce that we will be gifting a couple a loving and memorable wedding dream! Every day couples in the DFW area become engaged  and thousands wed each year. Understanding that there are many couples facing obstacles and unforeseen circumstances out of their control that prevent them from hosting a wedding, so SWP is setting out to make a difference in someone's life by granting them a wedding!
