Free Gowns from Maya Couture for Military Brides

11 Nov

Free gowns offered to military brides

NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk bridal salon Maya Couture will participate in a Veterans Day giveaway of a limited number of free designer wedding gowns to military brides-to-be.

The giveaway is organized by Brides Across America, a nationwide charity dedicated to providing free wedding gowns for military brides. Maya Couture’s participation was announced this week.

According to the charity, Brides Across America and its partners have given over 1500 wedding gowns nationwide since its inception.

“With the economy at its lowest and military couples are struggling to afford a wedding, it is important that we come together to show our appreciation for their brave service and commitment to our country,” said Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America.

“This is the second year we have participated in the bridal gown giveaway,” said Maya Warburton, owner of Maya Couture. “It is the single most rewarding initiative we host all year. Last year we helped make dreams come true for 60 military brides, and we hope to exceed that number this year.”

To qualify, brides must be engaged, be on active duty in the military, or have a fiance on active duty in either Iraq or Afghanistan. All military brides must show ID, copy of deployment papers, orders or other qualifying proof. Brides do not have to reside in the area where the giveaway is taking place. The gowns are pre-selected, and each event has limited amounts of gowns, and size ranges. The event is on a first come first serve basis.

    My boyfriend proposed to me and in a few months. I am hoping for a late spring wedding but we have not done much planning yet. Does anyone have any suggestions about when is the time to buy the dress?
