"When we set up our Macy's registry, we opted in to have the store donate a portion of the proceeds to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation." --*city bride*
"I registered for a lot of the pink breast cancer awareness items on my registry. Besides the fact that they were super-cute, I like that they can help someone else." --shakes116
"I'm going to donate my gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer. I think it's a really cool idea and organization. Plus it's tax-deductible." --fishy0821
"All our wedding stamps were the USPS breast cancer ones. We figured it would be better to spend the extra money for a good cause than to spend it getting custom-made ones with our pictures on them." --nani8nani
"I'm putting a big basket of pink ribbons in the ladies' room at our wedding, which is October 4. The ribbons will raise awareness and celebrate my mom's fourth year being breast cancer-free!" --alphie423
"I bought my dress from the Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale!" --emerlyn
"I click on TheBreastCancerSite.com every day, and I donated my wedding dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer." --redshoegirl
"My hairstylist is doing a big wedding-themed runway show to raise money for breast cancer and I am participating as a model for the show! I also got a bunch of girlfriends together to buy tickets and come! All the ticket sales go to the foundation. Anyone wanting to support this cause can find more info on BeautyEntourage.com" --blushingbride1009
"I'm doing a breast cancer walk and I have taken it upon myself to let everyone at my job know that they can contribute and participate by creating emails and flyers. After the wedding, I'll be cutting my hair and donating it to Locks of Love." --Ponticelli
"I am a leukemia survivor, my mother is a breast cancer survivor, and my fiance has a rare form of eye cancer. I lost my good friend Steve to leukemia and my cousin Billy to lung cancer over the past couple of years. I also have many friends that have survived cancer. For the past 10 years or so I have done Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society, and have served as a participant, a team captain, and then honorary chair survivor, speaking about my experiences to others. I chaired the survivorship committee for two years and put on a dinner for close to 500 survivors and caregivers using pretty much only donations (this makes planning the wedding a breeze!). My experiences are with supporting all cancers through the Relay. Our favors for our wedding include a purple 'HOPE' Relay bracelet and a $5-per-guest donation to the American Cancer Society." --vraingrlv
"I actually run the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure every year with friends." --isancarlos31
