Free Wedding Gowns for Military Brides

A military lifestyle can often be a rude awakening to brides who envision a dream wedding. More so than civilians, for military couples, time and money can both be critical deterrents to a perfect military wedding.

Over the years, many military brides have sacrificed their dream wedding to a quick deployment or military budget constraints. One woman decided to help military brides live their wedding dreams.


Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America, is giving back to America's military couples by giving military brides the wedding gowns they dream of - free of cost. Janson founded Brides Across America to help military brides not only find their dream wedding gown but to completely remove the financial burden of purchasing it.

Brides Across America not only helps America's military couples, but also helps businesses show their support for our dedicated military service members who fight for our country.


Here's how it works: Brides Across America holds annual events at bridal salons across the country, where a large selection of wedding gowns are on display for military brides to view, try on, and then take home, for free. Each salon has a different amount of gowns and sizes available on a first-come-first service basis. The Brides Across America wedding gowns are either samples from top designers, overstocks, new, or worn once and in new condition.

And while most of the Brides Across America wedding gowns are worth approximately $500 to $3000, with sizes ranging from 4-22, the cost to the qualified military bride is free. Brides are simply responsible for paying alteration fees, which are available on-site at every Brides Across America event.


Qualifying military brides must be engaged or scheduled to be married by civil ceremony with a wedding date within 18 months. Military brides or their fiances must have been deployed within the past 5 years or be awaiting deployment to Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Libya, Kuwait and Japan.

In order to attend Brides Across America events, military brides must bring drivers license or their military ID, and proof of deployment status. Military brides should come prepared with deployment documents and military ID. Once you are qualified, you are able to choose your dream wedding dress from the large selection of new, or gently worn high-quality wedding gowns available.


Brides Across America is supported by the wedding industry, Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network, and Smiles across the Miles charity. Find out about upcoming Brides Across America events online as well as on CNN, Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, Today Show, and Good Morning America.
