Holy moly, I was blown away by this shop. There's never-been-worn designer dresses for a fraction of the price and so much to choose from. SO MUCH! You can also shop from worn dresses, which with a cleaning, they're like new and there's no real reason to buy a brand new dress for a dress you'll wear once. All proceeds go to the charity of the moment. When I bought mine, it was going towards providing dresses for military brides (HOW COOL, RIGHT?!). They also have a few racks of bridesmaid dresses! I ended up with a designer's sample (new with tags) for about $400 that I love and can't wait to wear.Sent on 08/30/2016

Brides with a Cause were very hands off and allowed us to do the shopping on our own, which I greatly appreciated. The dresses and veils are very inexpensive. They have a small selection, only about thirty dresses per size, but I bought the first dress that I tried on. The had an amazing selection and I was satisfied with every second of my experience.Sent on 07/17/2019

Wonderful, especially for the thrifty Bride
I loved this shop! If going to boutique second hand stores is something you enjoy, then this is a great choice for you.Sent on 09/15/2019
The service was excellent, the ladies that worked there are knowledgeable and helpful. I usually wear a curvy size 6/8, but I was concerned how "dress sizing" was going to work. The ladies recommended starting with a size 10, 12, and 14 just to see how the fit was. I'm glad I did! We ended up going with a size 12 to fit my bust and hips, and there was plenty of selection to choose from. Brands, prices, and the condition were labeled clearly on the tags, which made knowing what you were getting so much easier.
I was so happy to find my dress here! And it feels even better knowing that the money is going towards a great cause.
Since everything is donated, I would recommend looking for dresses here with plenty of time before your wedding, and checking in frequently as the dresses change constantly.
