Group Helps Dreams Come True for Military Brides

Ad Feedback

Bridal salons are making dreams come true for future military spouses, by supporting "Brides Across America."

Participating boutiques are donating sample and overstock gowns to the non-profit organization. Some of the dresses would cost as much as three thousand dollars.

The only requirement is that brides prove their fiancees have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

"It's great what they're doing, and it helps a lot because there is so much stress with planning a wedding," military bride Katlynn Pratt said.

"These people have been very generous to be able to fulfill her dreams and mine," military fiancee David Mitchell said.

The organization's motto is "Bringing bridal and military together to make a marriage made in heaven."

"Well my son is in the military, and the military is a big family, and they go through a lot to support us and to serve us and to sacrifice for us," Carole Hood, with A L'Amour Bridal Boutique, said. "It's the least I can do."
