Strut is collecting once-loved wedding dresses for a wedding dress donation drive Nov. 1-25, 2012. Wedding gowns of any size and style from 2000 and newer will be collected in our Phoenix, Arizona bridal store during regular business hours.
The wedding dresses that are collected during the donation drive will be sent to a store in Oregon called Brides for a Cause. The donated wedding gowns are sold, and the proceeds go to Wish Upon a Wedding, which is a non-profit organization that helps fund weddings for couples experiencing a terminal illness.
When you drop off a new or gently used wedding dress, you'll receive a 10% off coupon to give to an engaged friend. They'll get 10% off their wedding dress purchase at Strut. Although Strut specializes in plus size wedding dresses, they can order wedding gowns in any size.
Call 602.252.4414 with any questions, and watch our segment at 5:50am on Channel 12 News Friday, November 3rd!
As the southwest’s only wedding dress store specializing in curvy and plus size brides, we thought we should be the only bridal salon to bring you a one-of-a-kind plus size bridesmaid dress trunk show November 9-11th! For one weekend only, Friday-Sunday, we're bringing in a huge assortment of gowns not regularly carried in our Phoenix store. Bring in your entire wedding party for big savings!
While we carry bridesmaid dresses in sizes 12 and up, we can order from size 0-30 to fit any member of your wedding party. As because bridesmaid dresses take 8-12 weeks to order, now is the perfect time for spring and summer 2013 bridesmaids to order their gowns!
During the bridesmaid trunk show, we will be offering the following discount for dresses ordered and paid in full that weekend:
They don’t have to be the same dress style or color, so brides can add a reception dress to the order and save big!
Strut is located at 542 W. McDowell Ave. in central Phoenix. We strong recommend appointments for the trunk show. Call them at 602.252.4414 to set up a time to visit!

We've never had a sale like this! We're taking 50 gorgeous wedding dresses and marking them down to $199, $299, $399 and $499 (plus tax). That means you can get an incredible designer wedding dress for cheap--under $500-- including the stunning ballgown below. It's a wedding dress sale like you've never seen before--with prices up to 73% off--for brides size 12-32.
Here are the details:
We recommend bringing no more than two or three people to help you find your wedding gown. You'll have one hour and can take up to four wedding dresses at a time in the fitting room. Of course you'll get our same great Strut service with a personal wedding dress stylist to help. These great prices can't be combined with any other promotion or discount.
Wedding dress styles included in this sale are:
Our wedding dress sample sale has dresses size 16-32. Because wedding gowns run small, these dresses will fit brides size 12 and up. So the sale includes a lot of plus size wedding dresses for sale, but these gowns will also fit our smaller curvy brides!
This wedding dress sale is good on select in-stock dresses and is perfect for fall brides who haven't bought a gown yet, or for brides looking for a great deal on the gown. We'll not sell designer wedding dresses this cheap again this year!
Call us at 602.252.4414 with any questions.

In case you missed Strut's big news, we're carrying plus size prom dresses for 2012! We're so excited to bring a great shopping experience to Arizona high school girls. We've heard that buying a prom gown can be as difficult--and traumatic--as buying a plus size wedding dress was before we came along.
But we need some help spreading the news, so we're launching a Prom and Portrait Model Program, where you can model Strut's great prom gowns and earn credit toward your own prom dress and senior portrait session with Olivia Womack Photography (yep--you've seen her work; she does our curvy girl boudoir sessions)!
Here's how it works:
Your photo session with Olivia will be scheduled for a later date, but you get a free portrait session ($195 value), and a $50 credit toward your senior portrait order for each student you refer who books a session with Olivia.
How to enter:
That's it! And you could be on your way to earning a totally free prom dress AND a free senior portrait session!
Strut and Olivia Womack Photography reserve the right to modify this program at any time.
Every girl has a few splurge items--the pricey boots or jeans, the really nice little black dress, the quality bathing suit that makes you feel like a super star... Well, meet your panty splurge. Introducing beatrix privé, a new line of top-quality thong underwear made just for your curves.
beatrix privé makes its national debut with a two-day trunk show at Strut Bridal Salon in Phoenix on Friday, Nov. 4 and Saturday, Nov. 5.
The line features luxury thong underwear created exclusively for women sized 16-20.
“Plus-size women no longer have to choose between ‘Granny Panties’ and ‘Trashy Panties’ ” says beatrix privé design director Jenny Davis, a fashion stylist and lifestyle magazine editor. For two years, Davis worked with real plus-size women to develop a comfortable, flattering and fabulous signature thong underwear design using colorful, luxury materials like silk charmeuse and imported lace.
The seven colorways in the beatrix privé debut collection, all made in the USA, are limited editions and will not be produced again once they’re sold out.
Davis will personally present the line on Nov. 4 and Nov. 5 during an in-store event from 10 am – 6 pm at Strut Bridal Salon (542 W. McDowell Road, Phoenix, 602- 252-4414). Prices range from $38-$42 with discounts for multiple purchases. The event will also include samples from My Goodness Cakes and custom jewelry from the J. Bond Wedding Collection.
