Bridal Consignment with a Twist!

05Have you tried to consign or sell your wedding dress online with no luck?

Consider donating your wedding dress to charity instead!  Brides for a Cause is a charitable wedding dress organization that collects and resells donated wedding dresses.  That’s right — DONATED!  People all over the country have donated their gorgeous wedding gowns to us to raise funds for charity!  We hear time and time again about how brides don’t know what to do with their wedding dresses after their wedding.  They want someone else to wear it!  That’s where we come in!

Brides for a Cause is set up like a bridal consignment store but with a TWIST!  People donate their gowns and instead of the money going back to the donor, the funds get donated to our partner charity, Wish Upon A Wedding!  This allows brides to not only recycle their wedding gown to be worn again by another beautiful bride, it is also a tax write off and the proceeds help to support charity.  50% of all proceeds from each dress gets donated to Wish Upon A Wedding to help them fulfill their mission of providing free weddings for couples in need.  Donations are tax deductible!

Visit our Donate section about how you can donate your wedding dress!  We are based in Portland but accept donations from individuals and bridal stores across the country!  The wedding dresses are resold at road shows around the country and at our boutique in Portland.

$8,122 Raised for Wish Upon A Wedding in April!

We are excited to report that we raised $8,122 for Wish Upon A Wedding in April, bringing our total to $42,904 raised for our partner charity since we opened in October! We are thrilled at the level of response we’ve received by all of the donors around the country, including brides and bridal stores, who have shipped precious wedding dresses to us, so that we can resell them to raise funds for charity. We are also thrilled to have so many amazing brides who come to our boutique and dress sale events with a conscious decision to purchase their wedding dresses from Brides for a Cause to help raise funds for charity. Together, we are making a HUGE difference in the lives of couples faced with hardship and serious illness!
