Camille Bridal Couture partnered with Brides Across America, a national wedding gown giveaway, for the special event. This was the only shop in the state participating, according to the Brides Across America Web site.
Any bride-to-be who is active-duty military or engaged to active-duty military could take advantage from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10.
All military brides had to show ID, a copy of deployment papers, orders or other qualifying proof.
Each event has limited numbers of gowns and they will be given away on a first come-first serve basis. Most of the dresses are samples in bridal size 10 and 12.
Camille Bridal is located at 30 Lasalle Road, West Hartford.
