Brides Across America

Recommended Posts

So I finally got my wedding dress after months of looking and not finding anything in my price range. It's a Mikaella that was just discontinued in October. The best part about it is that it was free! It's a $1300 dress and I didn't have to pay a dime on it (except for when I get it altered and cleaned). Over the summer I heard about an organization called "Brides Across America". Home Page

Basically designers & stores support this organization and at different times (the one I went to was on Veteran's day), they hold an event at bridal stores in different states that support this. To qualify, you have to either be in the military, or be engaged to someone in the military who has been deployed to either Afghanistan or Iraq. My fiancee went to Iraq in 2006 and because of that, I was able to go to this event and get my dress. I just wanted to share this information with anyone who may qualify. I think it is so amazing that they support the military like this. I know that I would never have been able to get this dress if it wasn't for this organization. Oh by the way, I also got 3 bridesmaid dresses, a flower girl dress, and another dress all for free too.

Congratulations on this awesome find! I'm sure it will definitely help the budget!

 

I checked the site, and they take donations of wedding dresses (less than 3 years old) from brides: Donations

 

This would be a great way to help others if you didn't want to preserve your dress or do a TTD (or at least a crazy TTD session, I know some of you said it basically just cleaned the dress).

What a wonderful program for deserving sevicemen and their brides to be! There should be more programs like this to say thank you for all that those in the military and their families sacrifice for their country...

 

SO EXCITED for you and can't WAIT to see your pics after you get your dress back from alterations! wink.gif

    • Congrats on finding the perfect person for you! Love is a journey of patience and time Where are you guys planning on getting married?
    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?
