Colorado Church to Give Away Free Wedding Dresses

Calling all outdoor brides who live within travel distance of Colorado Springs, Colorado: On Saturday, May 31, Living Hope Covenant Church will give away 63 new wedding dresses valued at $1,200 to $1,500, plus 25 other formal gowns. Tickets for the gown giveaway are $30 in advance and $40 at the door, and each ticket holder will receive one dress. It's a good idea to arrive ahead of the 1 p.m. start time, as the free wedding dresses will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, which has additional details, the gowns were donated to the church by a clothing store owner. Here's the part I love best: Not only will 63 brides be walking away with the deal of a lifetime, the proceeds from the sale will go toward the creation of an outdoor wedding sanctuary at Living Hope Covenant Church. To purchase your ticket, call the church at (719) 531-5101.
