Nationwide (Oct. 31, 2018) – For the tenth year Anniversary, Brides Across America will continue supporting our heroes by honoring veterans, active military and first responders with Operation Wedding Gown.
This event is nationwide and will gift free wedding gowns to those that serve. Events will kick off a week long celebration November 5th -15 at participating salons. Salons will offer a selection of designer wedding gowns some valued up to $6,000. Sizes will range from 0-30. Brides will need to register for the upcoming events online.
Anderson’s Bride will be partnering with Brides Across America on November 6-9th to honor our military and first responder brides-to-be with free wedding dresses. We welcome you to join us for this special event at 804 East 36th Avenue Anchorage, AK 99503. For more information on how to qualify and register go to www.bridesacrossamerica.com.
To allow love to play the starring role and minimize wedding-related financial stress for our heroes, Brides Across America, founded in 2008, originated Operation Wedding Gown. Since that time, Brides Across America , our partner salons, designers and individual donations have made it possible to give back by providing over 20,000 wedding gowns and 22 full weddings across the country. With wedding dresses and accessories costing an average of $2,000 the win for our heroes is evident.
“This program means so much to us. With all the medical expenses, gifting me this gown can make our dreams come true on our wedding day!” This will be a wonderful day that we can forget about our struggles and share in our love for each other,” says Roseann.

Making dreams come true is the life work of Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America.

I felt compelled to give back and make a difference for our heroes sacrificing their lives.”
