Our Purpose

Brides dream of having the perfect dress and a beautiful gown is an essential part of every bride's special day.  Brides Across America plays a role in making their dreams come true by giving a military bride a free wedding gown during a Brides Across America's Nationwide Gown Giveaway.  Events are held twice a year in partnership with bridal salons across the country.  Deployments, financial hardships,and other challenges unique to servicemen and women  can make it difficult to plan a wedding.

The organization garnered the attention of ABC's Nightly News in 2011 and 2012, and People Magazine article in 2013.  However, the highest honor was received during a 2012 White House event by Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden.  The event recognized twenty organizations for their contributions to improving the lives of military families. Brides Across America continues to support wounded warriors, post traumatic stress and employment for veterans. 

Our History

In 2008. Heidi Janson founded Brides Across America.  She was inspired to do something special to express gratitude for the dedicated men and women of the United Sates Armed Forces.   Brides Across America began its work with a small network that donated time and resources to head up the inaugural program.  In that first year fifty gowns were given away to military brides
