The DoubleTree Suites hotel was filled to the brim with 1,000 beautiful designer and brand name wedding gowns being sold at huge discounts. All of the money raised helps fund free services and programs for cancer patients and their families. Last year, $2-million went to free programs and services for those impacted by cancer.
But Sunday's event was even more special for one bride getting married in two months.
"The dress that she really loved that fit her perfectly was out of her budget. She left and I was sharing this story with all of the vendors and my lady at Thirty-One Gifts said that she was going to purchase the gown for her and said I want her to come back and I'll buy her dress for her," said Vanessa Pedersen, show manager for Brides Against Breast Cancer.
"I was given my wedding dress on the day of my wedding. It fit perfectly just like hers fits perfectly with her and she deserves it... All brides need to have that one moment in time when they feel fabulous with the best wedding dress ever," said Carolyn Brown with Thirty-One Gifts.
Brown said she has been saving money for a very long time but was not sure what for. Now, she believes the reason she had been saving was to buy that woman's wedding dress.
