Brides Across America continues to make Dreams come true by combining Combat Boots and Wedding Gowns


Brides Across AmericaNashville, TN – On November 11th and 12th, the national charitable organization, Brides Across America will be celebrating Veterans Day along with Tennessee’s premier bridal salon, Glitz Bridal & Formal and will be giving away free designer wedding gowns to military brides.

Bridal Salons across the country are participating in this nationwide event to show our support to the troops by donating designer bridal gowns designed by Vera Wang, Amsale, Pronovias, and other prominent designers. 

Without organizations like Brides Across America, many military brides would not have the chance to pick out a designer dress for their special day due to economic circumstances. “Many soldiers come back injured and take severe pay cuts.  It makes it very difficult to make ends meet not to mention have a dream wedding.  The least we can do is to help them have a magical day!” said Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America. 

Participating bridal salons will be preparing a select number of gowns to be given away to qualifying brides on a first come first serve basis. Gowns are valued between $500 to $3,000 and range from size 4 to 22.

In order for brides to qualify, they must be engaged, be on active duty in the military, or have a fiancé on active duty in either Iraq or Afghanistan.  All brides must show ID, copy of deployment papers, and orders or other qualifying proof.
