GEORGETOWN, MA (CBS) – A local bridal shop is handing out free wedding gowns to military brides.

The event at Tulle Bridal Salon in Georgetown on Wednesday and Thursday is part of Operation Wedding Gown, a nationwide effort organized by the group Brides Across America, founded by Heidi Janson.

“A wedding is something everyone loves and to give a wedding gown to support our troops makes perfect sense,” Janson told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens. “Right now we think we have around 100 dresses and we’re prepared to give away as many as we can.”

On July 19th, there will be another event at Bella Sera Bridal in Danvers.

“This is our gift to them, to say thank you for their service and sacrifice,” said Janson.

In order to qualify, brides or their fiancé must be serving in the military; either currently deployed, have a future deployment, or have been deployed within the last five years to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East, Korea or Japan.

For more information on how to qualify and register for an event, visit the website.
