Over 25 salons located in 22 states will take part in this national initiative to honor our

everyday heroes


Boston, MA (October 2, 2015) – Brides Across America is proud to kick off its annual Operation Wedding Gown campaign from November 9th through the 15th at locations nationwide. Brides Across America will say thank you to military brides by giving away free gowns valued up to $5,000.

Designers will vary and brides are encouraged to register early. “Operation Wedding Gown” has grown and we are now able to grant weddings to our military couples in need. Oftentimes military couples find it difficult to plan their “fairy tale” wedding due to deployment, injury and/or economic hardship. With the collaborative effort, Brides Across America has donated over 14,000 gowns to military brides and has gifted 20 weddings. People who want to help the cause can donate gowns or financial gifts online at www.bridesacrossamerica.com. We hope to convey how grateful we are for the service of our military families by giving them an opportunity of a lifetime. 

Brides Across America’s founder, Heidi Janson, wants to continue making dreams come true to military couples that have not had the opportunity to plan their dream wedding due to deployment. “Our continued efforts as an organization are to bring awareness to our communities. My goal is to make sure we don’t forget all the servicemen and women overseas fighting for our freedom”. 

How to qualify and register for an Operation Wedding Gown Event: In order to qualify, brides or their fiancé must be serving in the military; either currently deployed, have a future deployment, or have been deployed within the last five years to Iraq, Afghanistan, Middle East, Korea, Japan or surrounding territory.

To find a salon near you, brides can go to www.bridesacrossamerica.com to pre-register for an event. Brides must bring proper identification along with deployment papers to be presented the day of the event. About Brides Across America A national nonprofit, Brides Across America continues to honor our heroes by giving weddings and wedding gowns to our deserving military and making wedding dreams come true.
