Nationwide (May 14, 2014) This July, Brides Across America will thank our heroes for their service and sacrifice by giving away free wedding gowns to our military brides at the annual nationwide event. “Operation Wedding Gown” is Brides Across America’s mission to give away free wedding gowns to military brides on a national effort. Men get honored for their sacrifices, but fiancés and wives make a large sacrifice too. Often times 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.” Brides Across America and bridal salons want to roll out the red carpet for our deserving military brides – making their wedding dress dreams come true.

To register: For more information on how to qualify and register for an event visit

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, or Japan. Brides must pre-register for the event and bring proper identification along with deployment papers to be presented the day of the event.

About Brides Across America - Brides Across America is a nationwide 501c3 non-profit that provides free wedding gowns to our deserving military brides-making wedding dress dreams come true. Founded in 2007, Brides Across America and its affiliate salons continue to honor our heroes. To date, Brides Across America, in collaboration with bridal salons, designers, and individual donations has been able to donate more than 12,000 wedding gowns. Operation Wedding Gown made headlines when it was featured on NBC's "Making a Difference" with Brian Williams in August 2012. Brides Across America was honored by the Joining Forces program, a national initiative to support and honor America’s service members and their families, which was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden.

Not familiar with The NotWedding? 

Show producers describe it as, " a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding.  'Wedding guests' are brides-to-be who enjoy an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception while truly experiencing the wedding vendors in action."

Not big on contests?  Buy tickets. 

Make sure to buy your tickets now, because last year, tickets sold out weeks before the show!


Here are some lovely photos from the Birmingham NotWedding, which were captured by Morgan Trinker Photography.
