Nationwide, June 26, 2011—On July 11-23rd, The national charitable organization, Brides Across America is teaming up with bridal salons across the nation to provide military brides the opportunity to make their wedding dreams a reality by receiving a free wedding gown. In celebration of Independence Day, Brides Across America will honor military brides by saying thank you to our troops by giving away designer wedding gowns. Some of the designers donating gowns are from Jim Hjelm, Watters and Watters, Maggie Sottero, Pronovias, Lazaro, and other prominent designers.
The event will take place nationwide on July 11 through July 23rd. Brides will be serviced on a first-come, first-serve basis. Brides are encouraged to come early and secure their place in line, as there is a limited supply. The gowns to be donated are valued between $500 and $4,000 and range from sizes 4-20. Each store will have a select number of gowns, sizes and designers.
In order to qualify, brides or their fiancé must be on active duty in the military, either currently deployed or deployed within the last five years to Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Libya or Japan. Identification and deployment papers must be presented at the event to qualify.
Brides Across America, a Massachusetts based charitable organization focuses on providing free wedding gowns to those military brides that have not been able to have their dream wedding. Brides Across America is connecting with bridal salons across the nation to help spread the military spirit. Since 2007, Brides Across America and its partners have given away more than 6000 wedding gowns nationwide.
Without organizations like Brides Across America, many military brides would not have the chance to have a wedding. Due to deployment, timing and economic circumstances many military brides get cheated out of having there dream wedding. Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America makes that dream into a reality and all for free! “It’s time we give back, but most of all say thank you”! , states Heidi.

My Husband and I were together 4 years when he proposed. As soon as he popped the question, my planning began! Hopefully he had some kind of idea of what he was in for; I am the epitome of a girly girl! Everything always has to be extremely girly and sparkly. I dreamed of a pink wedding with lots of sparkles!
I knew I wanted this dress before I knew I was even getting married. When I got engaged, I ordered the gold without trying anything else on, and before we set a date because I knew it was to be discontinued soon. Everyone loved my dress, and commented on how they had never seen anything like it. Our wedding date was just May 14 of this year, so I had the dress for almost a year and a half. Thank you for making such a beautiful dress.
At 42, I has always been the bridesmaid, never the bride. I always knew I would not be alone forever but firmly believed that the man made for me must not be ready, or I had something else to learn, and he would come when the time was right. One of my best friends would say "I'd love to fix you up but don't know anyone worthy", or close family friends would say "you're the type of person that when it happens, it's going to happen fast", and boy were they right.
