BAA Operation Wedding Gown Events

Operation Wedding Gown

Brides Across America holds its wedding gown giveaways twice a year in partnership with bridal salons across the country.  The events take place in July and November to honor our troops around Independence Day and Veteran's Day.

You can find event registration information on our event registration page.  If you can't find a local event on our event registration page, please ask your local salon if they plan on hosting an event this year. They may be and have not signed up yet.

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.  We do our best to make sure that a good selection is available.


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 and agree only to use it for personal use. When you register for a gown giveaway event, you agree to comply with this policy.

Registration Fee

There is a $75 tax-deductible registration fee that is paid when registering for the event. The fee covers administrative costs associated with running the event. Brides Across America is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. Brides experience financial hardship may contact us about waiving the registration fee.

ID Requirement

On the day of the event, registered brides must bring proof of service and ID upon check in.  Once verified, you will be assisted in finding a gown from the selection provided for the event.
