It was another big month of selling wedding gowns at Brides for a Cause!
We sold a record-breaking 90 wedding gowns in June, raising $10,098 for our partner charity Wish Upon A Wedding! We sold these dresses at two road show events in Portland and Eugene. We also have a bridal store in Portland that is open by appointment. This month, we also started to sell our vintage style gowns on Etsy! If you’d like to view our vintage gown currently in stock, check out our online Etsy store! http://www.etsy.com/shop/BridesforaCause.
Funds sent to Wish Upon A Wedding are used to provide weddings for couples facing terminal illness. As previously announced, Wish Upon A Wedding is granting a wedding to a local couple in September.

We are scheduling more road shows along the west coast this year, including Portland, Seattle/Tacoma, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Sacramento. To view our upcoming road shows, visit our events section: http://bridesforacause.com/upcoming-events/
If you are not in our area, but would like to know more about our inventory, which changes daily as new dresses arrive all over the US, email is at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can ship your gown to you! Don’t forget – even though all of our dresses are donated, it doesn’t mean used. We receive brand new dresses from bridal stores around the country. In June we received 117 from a bridal store in Missouri and a huge shipment of designer wedding gowns from a bridal store in Minneapolis!
Here are some photos of our road shows in June. If you are able to attend, they are a ton of fun! We also need volunteers!
Thanks to all the brides who came out to support Brides for a Cause in June! We couldn’t have raised the funds without your support!
