Wedding planning can be a hectic time. Finding the right flower arrangement, seating and of course, having the perfect dress for the bride. However, for some in the military, the dress may not be easily picked with deployments and possible financial hurdles. 

That is where Fantastic Finds steps in, and ensure those brides who serve our country get the dress of their dreams for their special day.

"We wanted to have a military bridal event, and give away gowns to brides that maybe couldn't afford it, or married quickly because they had to leave soon," said Kim Gemalsky Bridal Manager. "We wanted to have something for them, so they could have their wedding. They sacrifice for us, so we can have a wonderful life."

This is the second year for the military bridal gown event, and last year 19 military brides came in to get their gowns. This year, they are hoping to grow upon that.

"There is a need, so we wanted to continue it and make it bigger each year," said Gemalsky. "Hopefully we can get as many brides as we can that can use a beautiful wedding gown that otherwise would not have been able to."
