Shop designer, couture and gently used bridal gowns for a good cause.
Brides-to-be can find their dream gown for a fraction of the retail cost at the Nationwide Tour of Gowns by Florida-based Brides Against Breast Cancer. Most gown prices range from $99 to $799, including hundreds of new, name brand and designer gowns valued up to $8,000. Exclusive designer and couture gowns valued up to $20,000 are also available at 25% to 75% savings.
Wedding gown sales are an important fund-raising event for Brides Agains Breast Cancer, which hosts more than 40 shows annually.
Gown sales help provide support, education and hope to men and women affected by breast cancer. Worldwide support of designers, manufacturers, bridal shops and individuals who donate a gown make it possible for the organization to hoste the Nationwide Tour of Gowns. Visit the website if interested in donating a wedding dress.
The Nationwide Tour of Gowns continues in Minneapolis March 10-11, Philadelphia March 31-April 1, and Atlanta April 13-15. Admission to the shows is free, although a VIP admission ($20) gives attendees a sneak peak at the gowns during “Power Hour” and the ability to buy first.
To date, the Brides Against Breast Cancer program has received more than 50,000 wedding gown donations, with an estimated resale value of more than $4 million. More than 70% of proceeds go directly to the services providing support, education and hope for those impacted by cancer.
Breast cancer awareness is an issue close to us at Advantage Bridal, where we understand firsthand how this diagnosis can impact one’s life. We donate a large percentage of proceeds of Pink Ribbon apparel and accessories, Fight Like A Girl shirts, Save the TaTas tanks, and breast cancer awareness apparel. Raise support in style with a personalized tank or tees that reads, “Survivor,” “Restored,” “Tough Chick” or “Hope.” Together, we can all do our part to help fight this deadly disease.
