Elegance Wedding & Evening Wear will thank our heroes for their service and sacrifice by giving away free wedding gowns to our military brides at their salon 2820 Highway Ave, Highland, IN as part of the Brides Across America’s campaign. “Operation Wedding Gown” is Brides Across America’s mission to give away free wedding gowns to military brides on a national effort. Often times military brides find it difficult to plan their “fairy tale” wedding due to deployment, injury and/or economic hardship. Brides Across America and Elegance Wedding & Evening Wear want to roll out the red carpet for our deserving military brides.


Brides Across America’s continued support and commitment has donated over 10,000 gowns to military brides.   Featured in PEOPLE magazine, June 24 and Aug. 26th, 2013 issues, see how Brides Across America is making a difference-one wedding dress at a time. “This is our mission to say thank you and support our heroes”, says founder, Heidi Janson.
