Brides Across America Salutes Our Heroes "Operation Gown Giveaway"
Brides Across America is proud to kick off its annual Operation Wedding Gown giveaway events held this November 6-18, 2016 in salons across the country.
BAA and our host salons will say thank you to our military and first responder brides by giving away free gowns on select dates from November 6 – 18, 2016, valued up to $5,000. Designers will vary and brides are encouraged to register early. "Operation Wedding Gown" is truly an amazing event and is our "Thank You" to all who serve us daily.
Annibel C., Nashua, NH: "I had a wonderful experience. Without the help of a free wedding gown from this program I would not have been able to afford one. I went to November's event and there was plenty of gowns to choose from. I was able to try lots of gowns on and found the one after about 5 dresses! I can't wait to wear it. Also, they provided me with a veil and headpiece. My family all shared in on one of my most memorable moments. My fiancé is overseas and will be back in Oct. We plan to get married in Dec right before Christmas. Thank you so much Brides Across America!"
Whether it's for love of country or love at the altar, our front lines deserve our very best.
