The Brides Project!
The Brides Project (TBP) opened in September 2011.We are a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to raising funds for the programs of the Cancer Support Community (CSC) of Greater Ann Arbor through the sale of donated bridal gowns. Previously-worn gowns donated by brides or unsold gowns donated by bridal shops are available for brides-to-be to purchase at a considerable savings. All profits from the sale of the gowns go to the CSC to support programs and services for people touched by cancer.

Our inspiration to start this project came to us from Helen Sweet, who started The Brides Project in Canada. She graciously allowed us to take this idea to the United States. If you are a bride in Canada, please visit her website

We offer a unique shopping experience in our boutique at 1677 Plymouth Road in Ann Arbor. Our gowns are very high quality and are offered significantly below market prices. We encourage appointments but walk-ins are also welcome during our open hours. Our volunteer bridal consultants will work with you to find just the dress for you!

Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor is a local non profit affiliate of  The Cancer Support Community (CSC), opening our doors in 2007. The Cancer Support Community is the largest and most comprehensive program in the country devoted solely to providing emotional support and education to people with cancer, their caregivers and children – all free of charge.

Our mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. The Cancer Support Community is a resource for education and information, and a place to gain support – all in an environment of acceptance and hope. In our local community,  special outreach efforts to historically under-served portions of our community have been added – to ensure that we truly are serving all people affected by cancer.

There are five core programs at the Cancer Support Community:

  1. Support
  2. Education
  3. Healthy lifestyle activities
  4. Social events
  5. Resource connections

The components of CSC programs have been shown to improve patient health, mental health and quality of life.
