A Houston-area bridal salon is giving Military and First Responder brides a free wedding dress November 8, thanks to a partnership with Brides Across America. This national, charitable organization helps unite military brides and bridal salons when military brides have not had a formal wedding as a result of deployment. Operation Wedding Gown is a way to honor our troops and veterans and help make dreams come true. Now First Responder Brides are included, as well.
