Brides Across America holds its wedding gown giveaways in Andover, MA on the first Thursday and Friday of each month.
You will find a wide variety of gowns donated by designers, salons, and individuals. Each salon has a different number of gowns and sizes available to give away. Prior to the event, we provide each salon with a complete list of the attending brides and their sizes. We do our best to make sure that a good selection is available.
Most gowns require alteration. Alterations and any associated costs are the bride's responsibility. Limit One Gown Per Bride: Brides may receive one wedding gown only from Brides Across America and agree only to use it for personal use. When you register for a gown giveaway event, you agree to comply with this policy.
There is a $50 tax-deductible registration fee that is paid when registering for the event. The fee covers administrative costs associated with running the event. Brides Across America is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.
On the day of the event, registered brides must bring proof of service and ID upon check in. Once verified, you will be assisted in finding a gown from the selection provided for the event.
