Brides for a Cause was started in 2012 in Portland, OR. We currently have four boutique locations including Portland, Tacoma, Seattle and Sacramento.
We are a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization with a mission to collect and resell donated wedding dresses to raise funds for women’s causes. We receive wedding dress donations from designers, bridal stores, manufacturers and brides from all over the country.
Brides for a Cause’s mission is to collect and resell wedding dresses to raise funds for women focused nonprofit organizations. We are one of the only nonprofit bridal stores that raises funds for numerous women’s causes, allowing for a greater impact for women across the country and globe.
Everything collected and accepted into inventory is sold by our team at our various Brides for a Cause boutiques to raise funds for various women’s causes.
Brides for a Cause serves thousands of brides each year. We pride ourselves in offering a relaxing, supportive and stress-free environment while shopping for a wedding dress. Shopping at Brides for a Cause gives brides an opportunity to purchase an affordable, sustainable and charitable wedding dress. We’re on a mission to change the mindset of what shopping at a charity bridal store looks like and feels like!
