LEAWOOD, Kan. -- A local event gave away hundreds of free dresses to military brides Wednesday.

A special day calls for a special dress. More than 200 wedding dresses at Belle Vogue Bridal are free to military brides.

Shopping for the perfect wedding dress can be extremely stressful. The right dress has to also fall in the right price range. But every single beaded, satin, tulle gown at Belle Vogue Bridal won’t cost a thing. The Gowns for Good event is all about giving back to military brides.

Amy Brown met her fiancé while serving in the United States Army.

“Last year, on October 1 he asked me to marry him. I said yes, of course,” she said.

More than 400 military brides have said yes to the dress.

“Those brides sacrifice so much via their time, their lives. This is one way to help them on one of their most special days in their lives,” said manager Ann Hafner.

Before the big decision, the dress has to be approved by the entourage. Everyone has an opinion. Grace-Anne Johnson is hoping to stun her high school sweetheart.

“He’s in the military. He’s a Marine,” said Johnson.

Every bride who booked an appointment has always walked away with a dress.
