Viva Amore and Brides Across America
My friend and client Anita Dunn will be hosting this wonderful event at her bridal shop. See below for more details. She also mentioned that they are excepting gently used gowns. Give her a call if you think you might be able to help. I will be there with my camera... I can't wait!

Viva Amore Bridal Salon is joining Brides Across America to honor Military personnel who have served in Iraq, Afghanistan, or whose fiances are on active duty with free gowns.
"With the economy at its lowest and military couples are struggling to afford a wedding, it is important that we come together to show our appreciation for their brave service and commitment to our country," said Heidi Janson, founder of Brides Across America.
The event takes place from Nov. 10 to Nov. 13. To qualify, brides must be engaged, on active duty in the military, or have a fiancé on active duty in either Iraq or Afghanistan. All military brides must show ID, copy of deployment papers, orders or other qualifying proof.
Brides do not have to reside in the area where the giveaway is taking place. The event has limited amounts of gowns and is on a first come first-serve basis.
Viva Amore offers many high-end designer wedding gowns, including Amsale, Jim Hejlm, Reem Acra, Jasime and Watters. The shop owners, a mother and daughter duo, said they have a special place in their hearts for the charity because their son/brother is a Marine.
Brides Across America and its partners have given more than 1,500 wedding gowns nationwide since its inception.
For more information about the event, call Viva Amore at 617-924-4600.
