The North Fork is dotted with fabulous shops and boutiques offering clothing and accessories, but for bridal and special occasion fashions the locals know it often requires a trip "up-west" as we like to say to the major shopping centers of Long Island.

So be sure to visit our members listed in this category--they are located "up-west", but we recommend them highly just the same.

Brides Against Breast Cancer

Trunk Shows Long Island and New York City

Brides Against Breast Cancer is a non-profit organization that matches brides with their dream wedding gown with the sales proceeds going to support those affected by cancer. Bridal salons, design houses and even brides donate floor samples, overstock inventory, and gently used gowns to Brides Against Breast Cancer who make them available for sale—at prices greatly discounted from the original retail price. The average price for these gowns it $600.

You can find a full selection of available gowns year-round in the Brides Against Breast Cancer Boutique in Sarasota Florida, but if a trip to Florida is not in your plans, no worries. Gowns in a wide selection of styles and sizes will make a grand tour of the US in the National Tour of Gowns, and regularly makes a couple of stops in the New York metro area, including Riverhead’s Atlantis Banquets and Events, usually in late January.

Another unique feature about Brides Against Breast Cancer is how their donations are used. Funds raised support services that help cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Education, nutrition, exercise, support and therapy are just some of those many programs and services.

So check the events schedule at the Brides Against Breast Cancer website to see when the Tour of Gowns will be the area, or contact the boutique to schedule a visit if you are in the Sarasota Florida area.
