Ad Feedback

A North Carolina bridal store has donated dresses to women who have already sacrificed so much. The gowns have been set aside for several brides-to-be who have fiances serving overseas in the military.

In honor of Veteran's Day, Bridal World dress store in Raleigh has donated dozens of wedding dresses to some very deserving ladies.

Carole King, the store owner said it's a way to show her appreciation for military families and give military couples a chance to have their dream wedding.

The designer gowns range in price from $300 to $3,000. Nearly 57 dresses have been given away so far.

"I'm super excited because its my very first time putting on a wedding dress," said Meghan Batchelor, a military bride-to-be. "He's already been (deployed) twice. He's probably going to have to deploy again, so we're just trying to get married so we can be together."

"They're very appreciative and a lot of them are on a very low budget so its great, " King said. "Its an opportunity to say thank you to our military who lay their lives down every day for us."

The wedding dress giveaway is a part of a nationwide organization known as Brides Across America. King's store plans to give away a total of 117 gowns.
