PHOENIX -

It's supposed to be one of the happiest days in a woman's life, but a wedding can come with a big price tag.

Now a valley bridal store is helping couples that are facing life-threatening illnesses with some of the cost.

Strut Bridal in historic downtown Phoenix, is making it's mark on the lives of others.

Mary Abi-Ad has her dress and bought it here because she wanted to be a part of something greater.

"I wanted to support a local shop and even though we're from Tucson, we came up to Phoenix and read rave reviews about Ann and her shop," she said.

Strut is where Mary is buying her dress -- the one she's always wanted.  Now, others will get their wish as well.

"Goes to two national charities, so other brides for a cause, they collect all the dresses and then resell them so the brides can have affordable weddings and then the donations from that go to Wish Upon a wedding and those go to people suffering from terminal illness and they pay for the whole wedding," said Strut Bridal's Jill Acton.

They're looking for dresses 2005 and newer throughout the month of November.

"Because we specialize in sizes 12 and up, we believe that every bride deserves a beautiful wedding, so it helps brides who can't afford weddings and those facing illness, so we just want to pass along the love a little bit," said Jill.

A month long event to extend a helping hand to those who need it most.  You're invited to be a part of something greater.

Dresses of any size and color can be dropped off at Strut Bridal during their regular business hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  You can also donate money.  $20 helps to clean and refurbish dresses and you'll get a store coupon for 10 percent off.  Donations are tax deductible.
