Brides for a Cause is a charitable wedding dress organization that resells wedding dresses up to 75% off to raise funds for charity. 50% of your purchase will support Wish Upon A Wedding, a non profit organization dedicated to providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances.

We carry more than 2,000 beautiful name brand and designer wedding dresses in every price range starting at just $150. On average, our dresses are priced between $350-$400. We also have a huge selection of designer dresses offered at half the price (designer dresses start at $500). We carry a variety of sizes between 0-26. We also sell discounted veils starting at just $30 and other bridal accessories.

If you are a bride on a budget, this place is for you. Or if you are looking for a designer wedding dress, but don't want to pay a few thousand to get a high quality dress, this place is for you! Also, if your wedding is coming up soon, our place is perfect for last-minute weddings, since you buy the dresses off the rack! Every dress is unique and one-of-a-kind! Our inventory changes daily as we get new donations in all the time!

Everything we carry has been donated, but that doesn't mean used! More than half of our inventory is BRAND NEW! We receive dresses from bridal stores (sampes, discontinued and overstock gowns) as well as once-worn dresses donated by past brides who have passed their wedding dresses along to allow another bride to wear it and to help raise money for charity. Most dresses come from out-of-state, so we have a HUGE variety and wide selection that you won't find anywhere else!

Find a great dress at a great price and help a great cause!

Our Portland boutique is open 7 days a week!

Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm

Sundays 12-4pm

We are conveniently located off Alberta. Our address is:

Just recently i found the dress of my dreams here. I went to an event called "dress dash" very early in the morning along with hundreds of other brides there. When i arrived i thought by the time i got in the doors there would be no dresses left for me and that i was going to leave empty handed! Luckily there was still a good selection left when i got in. I must admit it was a little crazy but totally worth it. I walked out with the dress of my dreams unused for $150 retailing at $1100. Couldn't be happier! I definitely reccomend checking it out!

I cannot even explain how much I loved this place. I live in Southern Oregon, and after trying on an expensive dress at the local bridal shop, I wanted something more. I found Brides for a Cause while browsing through bridal boutiques in Portland. I gathered my girlfriends and headed for the city. Once we arrived, the sales associate explained the layout and then set us free, which I really appreciated. I didn't feel pressured or watched like I experienced at other bridal stores, but if I had a question or needed advice, the sales associate was knowledgable and eager to help. I ended up buying a dress that was not what I thought I wanted at all, but it is BEAUTIFUL. The dress itself is Kenneth Pool and retailed for $5,700. I spent $350 on my dress. That is 94% off. Yep. Best deal of my life. Plus, not only did I get an incredible deal and a drop dead gorgeous dress that I would not have been able to afford otherwise, half of the proceeds went to help out another couple. I will definitely be back with my girlfriends when it's their turn to tie the knot. Amazing store.

Why wouldn't you shop here for your gown!?!? The selection is amazing! I got a gorgeous dress for a fraction of the what it would have cost me in a bridal store. AND they donate some of their proceeds to a fantastic charity. It's a win, win, win for everyone!!! I have recommended Brides for a Cause to every new bride I know. The volunteer was super nice and helpful. Definitely a must visit before you go anywhere else!!! Loved my experience, love my dress!!! (Don't let the cost of my dress fool you, it looks like a designer dress....because it is!)

Wonderful bridal shop! The options in my price range ($200-$300) were somewhat limited, but I did end up finding a great dress for $200. Erin was very helpful and great to work with.

I came in to Brides for a Cause looking for a belt to go with a dress at a boutique that I loved and left with an amazing dress for a great deal. My dress was a beautiful sample gown that had never been worn and retailed at $4,500. I got it at Brides for a Cause for $600! You can't beat that! At least swing by and see what they have before you commit to a dress at a boutique for several thousand dollars, you never know what you might find and I am proof of that.

After finding a dress I liked, the staff realized it had been requested by someone online just a day or two prior. They were very courteous and professional in letting me know the situation and setting up clear next steps. They contacted the person who'd requested the dress online to give her a deadline for purchase. She ended up responding that she no longer wanted the dress, so I was able to have the usual 24 hours to consider it. I ended up purchasing the dress the next day and they gave me the same discount they'd offered the other customer.

I really appreciated the staff's candor and responsiveness about the issue. They were helpful when I was trying on dresses and gave me a list of places to contact for alterations.

I got both by wedding dress and veil here and felt so good about it! Wedding dress shopping can be so overwhelming, dresses are outrageously expensive and it's hard to justify spending thousands of dollars on a dress to wear for a few short hours, however as a bride you want to be the vision you've dreamt of since you were a girl. Brides for a Cause is so perfect for this dilemma ! They had a huge selection, and even a section of all designer dresses! I found a gorgeous dress that was originally 1500, and I got it for 700, it was a sample dress and so never worn at a wedding (essentially brand new!) I was so happy with my experience here, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They had tons of veils and accessories, it is truly a one stop shop. PLUS you feel great when you walk out the door, as you get to help a great cause! I would buy my dress here again!

I got my dress at a brides for a cause event in Des Moines Washington. I went planning to get ideas for the kind of dress I wanted, wih no intention to buy, but ended up finding the perfect dress on the 4th try. I was lucky enough to find a dress that fit perfectly right off the rack. The volunteer staff were all very kind and helpful.
