In honor of our military servicemen and servicewomen, the non-profit group Brides Across America is once again offering FREE wedding gowns and wedding dresses in November for military brides. The wedding gowns are donated by designers including Vera Wang, Jim Hjelm, Kathy Ireland and Alfred Angelo, at participating bridal shops nationwide.
The giveaway is limited to military brides who are engaged, have had a civil ceremony and be planning a wedding within the next 18 months, and the bride or groom must have been deployed within the past five years or will be deployed, to Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Libya, Kuwait, Korea or Japan.
