Brides against Breast Cancer:

Brides-to-be gathered in Nashville to purchase discounted wedding gowns and help support the fight against breast cancer.

For the second year, the nationwide Brides Against Breast Cancer dress sale was in Nashville Saturday through Monday at the Airport Marriot.

Bride-to-be Stephanie Lichtman saved on a designer wedding gown, while donating to the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.

"It's a great cause they fact that they're donating all the proceeds to breast cancer awareness is wonderful," Lichtman told News 2.

The dresses are donated by top designers, bridal stores and individuals.

"It's just a round about positive situation," said Crystal Hargrove, who donated a dress. "My aunt is a breast cancer survivor and I wanted to do something in honor of her."

Lindsay Bonaccorso also donated a dress to the cause.

"I ended up having two dresses and I couldn't sleep at night and I needed to give this one away for such a great fundraiser," Bonaccorso said.

Senior Tour Director Barbara Raskins told News 2, the proceeds from the event go to helping those suffering from terminal cancer and educating women about the disease.

"We do this work all year and sensitize young women who are about to get married to the treat of breast cancer, and urge them at the same time they say, ‘I do,' to the guy to say, ‘I do to self examination,'" Raskins said.

The dress sale continues through Monday, Sept. 13, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
