Once again this year, in honor of our military servicemen and servicewomen, the non-profit group Brides Across America is offering FREE wedding gowns and wedding dresses in June and July 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 overseas to the Mideast, Korea or Japan. Military brides must register for the giveaway — click here to register. Bridal shops set their own dates, and the website lets you search by state. In New York City, the shop Bridal Reflections is participating on Monday, June 24th, and appointments are required.
