MAYA COUTURE CARRIES ON THE STORE'S DEDICATION TO MILITARY BRIDES BY HOSTING A BRIDES ACROSS AMERICA EVENT ON VETERAN'S DAY - TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2014.
Norfolk, VA (October 28, 2014) - "Operation Wedding Gown" is Brides Across America's mission to give away free wedding gowns to military brides. On November 11, 2014, Maya Couture Bridal Salon will host a gown giveaway to make wedding dreams come true for many military brides. Men get honored for their sacrifices, but fiancés and wives make a large sacrifice too. Far too often, military brides find it difficult to plan their "fairy tale" wedding due to deployment, injury and/or economic hardship. Heidi Janson, founder says, "A wedding is something everyone loves and to give a wedding gown to support our troops makes perfect sense! This is our gift to them, to say thank you for their service and sacrifice."
Maya Couture is so excited for the opportunity to participate in Brides Across America for the seventh year in a row. We are incredibly honored to bring the military brides joy and happiness through doing what we love to do most - dressing them for one of the most important days of their lives.
Maya Couture will host this annual event on November 11th at 12 Best Square, Norfolk, VA 23502. Brides Across America and Maya Couture will roll out the red carpet for deserving military brides and give them the opportunity to shop for a free wedding gown.
