Our good friends at Brides Against Breast Cancer are going to be back in town this weekend, brides, and while we do enjoy a good night out with them—and even bartending, say, at BABC events—this time around, it’s all about their Charity Wedding Gown Sale & Bridal Show.
This fab gown sale—which is happening this time around at the Wyndham at 400 Arch Street—travels to cities all around the country generating funds; the gowns the organization sells are donated by designers, manufacturers, bridal salons and individual brides themselves, and they’re then sold at seriously awesome prices to raise money for the wellness and educational programs they fund for breast cancer patients and their families.
The gown sizes range from 4 to 18, the prices from $99 to $3,900, and with every purchase, you'll receive a gift certificate for two wedding bands from JVL Jewelry (a $600 value). And as for the event itself, there are two parts: On Friday, May 9 from 6-9pm, they'll have the VIP "Unveiling of the Gowns" reception, with nibbles and drinks and entertainment. This costs $40 and allows you an opportunity to find your dress before the general public storms in.
And then the next day, Saturday, May 10, from 10-3pm, is the general admission sale, which costs $5 (or $7 at the door; all tickets are tax-deductible, by the way). You'll also get the chance to mingle with some fab Philly wedding vendors and be eligible for awesome giveaways.
Get your tix here—or, hey, even sign up to volunteer at the sale!
