USO New England and Vows Bridal Outlet teamed up for the “G.I. Gown Giveaway,” ensuring that over 300 women received a gorgeous wedding gown…for free!

"We wanted each bride to feel special,” Mallon said. “Not only is it an exciting practical gift for military families and brides-to-be, but it also boosts morale.” Check out a photo gallery of the gown giveaway goings on:
