If there was ever a unique wedding favor, this is it, and it’s going on right now in cities all across the country! I’m talking about bridal salons giving military brides free wedding gowns, thanks to Heidi Janson and Brides Across America!
From Chicago’s online Daily Herald:
“Heidi Janson is the founder of Brides Across America, a non-profit organization uniting military brides and bridal salons throughout the country for a common purpose to support our troops and families. After spending more than twenty five years in the bridal industry, it was time to take a stand and do her part. Military Brides don’t always get their dream wedding. Some brides have to give up their wedding due to their fiancees getting deployed quickly. In other cases, brides have a civil ceremony and then await years for their fiancee to return home to finally have their wedding day. Heidi wants to make a difference and help those troops that are fighting for our country.”
What a wonderful idea! Thanks, Heidi!
How You Can Help!
There are a couple of ways you can help:
1. Donate money at BridesAcrossAmerica.com
2. Donate your wedding gown to the program
Gown designers and bridal salons everywhere are stepping up to the plate to donate their gowns to this incredibly wonderful cause. One more reason why America is a great country! If you know a military bride-to-be who might benefit from this program, send her to http://www.bridesacrossamerica.com/ to register.
To everyone who donates to Brides Across America, I salute you!
