Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Bridal couture is within reach, even for bride’s facing a tight budget.  Designer wedding dresses from the industry’s top fashions – such as Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, Alvina Valenta, Lazaro, Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka, Ines di Santo and many more – can be purchased or rented for a fraction of the cost thanks to options other than shopping your local bridal boutique or retail shop.  Buy a gently used couture wedding gown or designer sample, or simply rent the wedding dress of your dreams.  These eco-friendly options won’t blow the budget.

If the thought of wearing another bride’s gown makes you cringe, the savings will make you smile and often outweigh the stigma of buying gently used designer garb.  After all, the bride wore the dress for less than a day and you can’t really afford the splurge.  Websites like Recycled Bride, Once Wed and Bravo Bride offer an online marketplace for brides to sell their designer dresses, while Los Angeles-based One Night Affair rents designer bridal gowns.  White Xchange, Encore Bridal and Bride Couture sell sample and gently used designer wedding gowns.  Do your homework and you can find the perfect couture wedding dress that will wow guests and photograph beautifully.  If you don’t want to store your bridal gown and you could use the cash, search local bridal boutiques that offer consignment or find the right website to list your gown.  You can also donate your bridal gown to worthy causes such as Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.  Check out breast cancer awareness apparel and accessories at Advantage Bridal, including Save the Tatas and our new Fight Like a Girl products.

Advantage Bridal Features Pink Ribbon Items at Southern Women’s Show Orlando

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Our booth featuring Pink Ribbon items and custom rhinestone apparel, shoes and accessories at the Southern Women's Show Orlando.

The Southern Women’s Show Orlando has it all: food, fashion, shopping, health, beauty, lifestyle and celebrity guests. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought it was the perfect venue to showcase Advantage Bridal’s Pink Ribbon apparel, totes, gifts and other fabulous pink items. Whether you’re a cancer survivor or know someone who is, Pink Ribbon tanks and tees show support and bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer.

Raising awareness for breast cancer is a cause we support both professionally and personally. We have seen firsthand how the disease impacts the lives of women and understand the difficult road to recovery. That’s why we donate a portion of our Pink Ribbon sales to help uninsured women get reconstruction after breast cancer. The diagnosis will change a woman’s life forever, but she can feel like a complete woman again as long as she knows the options that are available to her.

Stop by our booth at the Southern Women’s Show Orlando to see what Pink Ribbon items we have for yourself, a friend, sister, mother or loved one. Together, we can join in the fight against breast cancer and help women explore reconstruction options following a diagnosis. Advantage Bridal’s online Pink Ribbon Shop carries items for everyone (and they’re super cute, too!), including Fight Like A Girl, Save the TaTas, pink ribbon tanks and t-shirts, breast cancer jewelry, Pink Ribbon footwear and Pink Ribbon accessories. We’re sooo much more than a bridal shop!
