This post is probably too late, but I loved Brides Against Breast Cancer! I lost my grandmother, who I was extremely close to, to breast cancer. It was a meaningful way for me to remember her. They said that something like 80% of the proceeds go to people with breast cancer and the rest is for operating costs. An awesome charity! I went in Austin and there were around 10 vendors that we talked to for the first 30-45 minutes. There were also very basic appetizers. Drinks were not free as advertized. The side of the room had approximately 500 wedding dresses… maybe more. Most were in wedding dress size 10. Most of the dresses are used, but still nice enough to wear again. The prices are mainly between $400-600. I saw one for $1000 and one for $99 though. You choose the dresses in your size (no running, tripping, fighting, etc) and then take it to the dressing room. The dressing room is a curtained off area in the back with partitions inside for you to get dressed. There were tailors in the back to help people clip the dresses and give estimates for how much it would cost to tailor it. Overall, I think this is an amazing charity and a great way to get a dress if you are on a budget.

Btw… I went to the event during the VIP Power Hour (or something like that). This cost extra but gave me first choice of dresses. It may have been the only reason there were vendors and snacks there.
