Many military brides find it difficult to plan their dream wedding due to deployment, injury or economic circumstances, said Brides Across America founder Heidi Janson. “My goal is to make sure we don’t forget all the servicemen and women overseas fighting for our freedom,” she said.

From coast to coast, bridal salons are honoring veterans by giving away free wedding gowns as a thank you for their service. Brides Across America is a nationwide 501c3 nonprofit organization that focuses on providing free wedding gowns to military brides.
