In partnership with Brides Across America, and to celebrate the opening of its new Brides by Glitz location, Bellevue's longtime bridal and formal wear salon is presenting free gowns to all active military, veterans and first responder brides on July 11.

Operation Wedding Gown, which Glitz is hosting for the 11th year, runs from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., at the new BRIDES by Glitz Nashville location, 4239 Harding Pike, Suite 1. The event is being held in conjunction with the national Brides Across America (BAA) and Gifts of Gratitude programs.

“Rolling out the red carpet for military brides is our way of saying thank you. It is our honor to give back to those who sacrifice their own love for the love of our country,” said Ann Miller, owner of BRIDES of Glitz Nashville and the Glitz Nashville's Bellevue location, 241 Old Hickory Blvd.

Miller says the salon will offer a selection of designer wedding gowns valued up to $6,000 in sizes ranging from 0-24. BRIDES by Glitz Nashville is the only Tennessee bridal salon participating in Operation Wedding Gown, according to Miller.

In order to qualify, brides or their fiancé must bring proper identification along with deployment papers on Thursday. Brides are encouraged to arrive early to avoid a potentially long wait.

Glitz Nashville, Inc. specializes in bridal, prom and special occasion apparel, and offers one of the largest selections of top designers and the latest bridal and prom fashions in the Nashville area. Its trained stylists cater to the needs of brides of all ages and sizes, bridesmaids, maids and matrons of honor, prom-goers, pageant contestants and those seeking a unique special occasion dress, Miller said.
