A national non-profit is offering brides to be wedding gowns at dramatic savings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Soon-to-be-brides sort through hundreds of wedding gowns all at a fraction of the price.  Even better than the discount?  Brides who buy one are donating to a good cause.

It is the Brides Against Breast Cancer Nationwide Tour of Gowns. Proceeds from the sales go toward supporting cancer patients, their families and caregivers.

There were about 800 dresses to choose from on Saturday, and each one was discounted up to 85 percent.

"We have couture and designer gowns here," said Ashley Ritter with the Nationwide Tour of Gowns. "They start at $99 and up."

This sale continues from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Hyatt Regency downtown.
