Qualifying brides may then register to attend the event at a participating bridal salon by completing the registration form and paying a $20 fee.  This small fee helps Brides Across America cover the costs of organizing and running these events.  Brides experience financial hardship may contact us about waiving the registration fee.  On the day of the event, registered brides must bring a copy of orders, deployment papers, or an official letter confirming the military status of the bride or groom.  You will be asked to show this qualifying documentation before you start looking for a gown so please come prepared.  Once verified, you will be assisted in finding a gown from the selection provided for the event.

About the Gowns

You will find a wide variety of gowns donated by designers, salons, and individuals. Each salon has a different number of  gowns and sizes available to give away. Prior to the event, we provide each salon with a complete list of the attending brides and their sizes and do our best to make sure that a good selection is available.

Alterations

Most gowns require alteration.  Alterations and any associated costs are the  bride's responsibility. Limit One Gown Per Bride:  Brides may receive one wedding gown only from Brides Across America. When you register for a gown giveaway event, you agree to comply with this policy.
