Prepare For Your Visit

Brides for a Cause is open by reservation!

Shopping at Brides for a Cause is about more than purchasing a wedding dress – you are joining thousands of other brides who make it possible for us to support women’s causes across the nation and around the world!

We have always offered an untraditional approach to the wedding dress shopping experience: a relaxed atmosphere designed to give our brides freedom and flexibility to explore our gowns at their own pace. Our reservation policies allow us to ensure that each bride has a dedicated amount of time and space to shop comfortably and allows our staff to best prepare for your visit. So, thank you for respecting our shopping guidelines and policies!

Please contact us if you have questions about shopping with us!


Current Store Policies

Before Your Visit

During Your Visit

Brides will be required to “Reserve a Room” in order to shop in our store. Your room reservation will give you access to our dress racks, a private fitting room to try on in and seating for up to 3 people.

There are two types of reservations:

60 minute and 30 minute, depending on what brings you in. You may only book 1 reservation per day!

  • The 60-minute reservation is to shop for wedding dresses (up to 15 dresses)
  • The 30-minute reservation is for return brides and to shop bridesmaid dresses and accessories. The 30 min option is recommended to browse our racks again (up to 5 dresses), try on a dress on hold, shop our bridesmaid dresses or view bridal accessories. 

Those who do not need to “Reserve a Room” include:

  • Brides purchasing a wedding dress on hold who do not need to try it on again
  • Those dropping off a dress to donate do not need to “Reserve a Room,” but we appreciate a phone call ahead of time, so that we can expect you

Our store offers a stress-free, welcoming and friendly environment to shop for a wedding dress! Our staff will guide our brides through their dress shopping experience and answer any questions they may have during their visit.

We offer a laid back, self-led bridal shopping experience, instead of a one-on-one appointment, where brides are able to shop on their own. You’ll be greeted at the door, where staff will explain the store layout and rules. You’ll be escorted to your dedicated fitting room before hitting the racks. Staff will provide guidance and assistance during your dress shopping experience but will give you the freedom and space to shop and try on at your own pace.

Here’s how your visit will go:

  • Brides are able to browse the racks on their own and pick out their dresses! 
  • Guests are welcome to browse the racks with the bride but must stay together 
  • A go-back will be available for your “no’s” or ask staff to assist with removing any unwanted dresses between rounds
  • Brides are encouraged to bring a guest if they need help and assistance trying on. Our staff is available to zip and clip upon request and at our stylist’s comfort level. Bring someone if you know you’ll need the help!
  • Brides are encouraged to speak up if they need help or have questions. Staff will be available to assist in putting dresses in your room, recommending dress options and providing alterations advice.
  • Brides will be encouraged to use their best judgment to determine the best dress choices for them. Most brides have time to try up to 15 dresses per 60-minute reservation and 5 dresses per 30-minute reservation.
  • Bridal accessories will be displayed and available for any reservation type.
  • Need more time before you buy? We offer a 24 hour hold on one dress for free!
  • Find “the one?” Congratulations! Our gowns are sold off-the-rack so you can take it home with you same day! We accept all major credit cards and cash payments. Checks are not accepted. All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges are offered!

Thank you for following our store policies!

Our rules and safety measures are to keep a safe shopping experience. Thank you for abiding by our rules, which may change at any time with or without notice.

We’re open 7 days a week! Book directly online: Reserve a Room.
