FARGO, N.D., Nov. 2 - Brides Across America is proud to kick off its annual Operation Wedding Gown giveaway events held in November in salons across the country. In an effort to support communities, Brides Across America this November will provide free wedding gowns at participating salons for active-duty personnel and first responders. 

 

LeeAnne's Bridal & Bliss Prom in Fargo is hosting its Operation Wedding Gown event Nov. 9-11. Active-duty personnel and first responders can pre-register online and then attend the event to choose a dress and get fitted. Register costs $30. 

 

"I had a wonderful experience", said Annibel C., Nashua, New Hampshire. "Without the help of a free wedding gown from this program, I would not have been able to afford one. I went to November's event and there was plenty of gowns to choose from. I was able to try lots of gowns on and found the one after about 5 dresses! I can't wait to wear it. Also, they provided me with a veil and headpiece. My family all shared in on one of my most memorable moments."

 

"Operation Wedding Gown" is truly an amazing event and is Bride Across America and its host salons'  "Thank You" to all who serve us daily. 

 

Whether it's for love of country or love at the altar, our front lines deserve our very best. This program reduces stress in planning a wedding, provides financial relief and transforms lives.
