Each year, Brides Against Breast Cancer takes its Nationwide Tour of Gowns event to more than 150 cities hosting bridal events and a pop-up bridal gown boutique featuring hundreds of bridal gowns and wedding accessories in all sizes and styles.

Discounted gown prices average around $600 and range from $75 to $1,800. Brides-to-be will enjoy one-stop shopping) with the many local businesses represented during the events.

“One in every 4 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. These women may have taken that walk down the aisle, or may never have the chance. Cancer does not discriminate. It does not care if your dress fits, if your hair is in place or if you are smiling enough,” said Amy Paulishak, senior vice president, Brides Against Breast Cancer. “We raise funds to make sure that no one, anywhere, has to face cancer alone.”

78 cents of every dollar raised by Brides Against Breast Cancer funds free programs through The Health Support Network provides free online education, exercise, stress reduction and nutritional programs for patients, families and caregivers impacted by cancer.

Here’s how you can help:

  • If you have already said “I Do,” donate your newer gown for a tax deduction
  • Volunteer at one of our gown shows or make a donation to support the cause
  • Visit or call 877-721-HOPE (4673)
