Give and Save up to $50 off your Bridal Gown this Summer!


Last year we received an overwhelmingly positive response to our "Give and Save" food and toy donation drive.  Our customers were so generous with their donations that we were able to not just meet but well surpass our donation goals and at the same time save dozens of brides thousands of dollars on their bridal gowns! Since then we have been looking for a local organization to partner with for a long term donation drive to make "Give and Save" part of the Brilliant Bridal DNA on a daily basis.  We are so excited to announce that starting this month we are partnering with

Phoenix Rescue Mission's

"Changing Lives Center for Women and Children"

We will be collecting urgently needed items to help the residents at CLC.  The items being collected will change through out the year as their needs change and, of course, in addition to your donations helping these women and children they will also earn you savings on the purchase of your wedding dress!

This Summer from May1st to July 31st you can save up to $50 off your bridal gown purchase by participating in our Give and Save program!  Here's how you can Give and Save*:

  1. Save $25 with the donation of 1 full size package of baby wipes.
  2. Save $50 with the donation of baby wipes + 1 package of diapers (any size).

Simply bring your donations with you to your bridal gown shopping appointment and the discount will be applied to your bridal gown purchase immediately!

*Donations must be made at time of purchase.  Does not apply to: wedding dresses currently on a hold or payment plan, clearance or sale wedding dresses, cleaning & pressing services, alterations, accessories or other items.  May not be combined with other sales, discounts or coupons.  Donations have no cash value.


Dress of the Week - Both Locations - Lace Christina Wu Wedding Dress


We're excited to share for the first time on the blog a beautiful wedding dress by designer Christina Wu.  Just recently we've built a relationship with the House of Wu bridal line to have direct access to purchase their overstock and close out bridal gowns at deep discounts.  We get really excited when bridal lines and designers open their doors to us because it means bigger discounts for our brides!
