Events are held nationwide in July & November, around the Fourth of July and Veterans Day holidays.

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.

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 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 $50 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.
