Grand Opening: The Brides Project Comes to Ann Arbor Michigan

The Brides Project, a non-profit organization that raises money for the Cancer Support Community of Ann Arbor, is taking bridal appointments.

Ann Arbor, MI, September 13, 2011 --( Green isn't a color usually associated with bridal gowns, but area brides will soon have an opportunity to include "green," eco-friendly couture in their weddings at a substantial cost savings.

On September 17, The Brides Project will open the doors of its beautiful new salon at 208 West Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor. This exciting bridal shopping concept is sponsored by the Cancer Support Community (CSC) of Ann Arbor. It will offer brides a selection of gently used or new dresses which have been donated to CSC, who in turn will be selling them for less than half the retail price.

It's a "win-win" situation, as proceeds from the sale of the dresses will be used to support vital programs and services offered to families and individuals by the Cancer Support Community. Dress donations are accepted from anywhere in the US and anyone can purchase the gowns. For more information, please email: or call 734.418.3332.

A Canadian woman, Helen Sweet, originally came up with the idea of The Brides Project, and a CSC board member, Monique Sluymers, also from Canada, was instrumental in starting the project here. The West Liberty location will be the first one in the US and will offer consultations and sales in an elegant and relaxing atmosphere.

Cancer Support Community of Ann Arbor, located at 2010 Hogback Road, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free programs for those touched by cancer. Along with support groups for adults, teens and children, CSC offers nutrition, stress management and exercise classes, educational workshops.
