Looking for a great deal on a wedding gown? Then come to Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria for the Brides Against Breast Cancer Nationwide Tour of Gowns. This two-day "pop-up" wedding gown shop will take place August 1st and 2nd, with VIP access to hundreds of new and gently worn gowns on 8/1.
Brides Against Breast Cancer funds programs and services that are free to cancer patients and their families. Each year the organization takes its tour across the country, selling gowns and accessories in all styles, sizes and price ranges. Each stop of the tour also features local wedding professionals. The tour generates over $1 million annually and is a major part of the organization's fundraising efforts.
Tickets are available online for both the VIP event as well as general admission. Visit the website for more info. Brides Against Breast Cancer also needs volunteers to man the show. And if you have a recently-married friend or relative, she can donate her gown and accessories for a charitable tax deduction.
