CHICAGO, IL (WFLX) - A bridal shop in Chicago is giving away free wedding gowns to women marrying troops overseas.

Al' amour Bridal Boutique is part of the Brides Across America program. The gowns being offered are samples and overstocks. They range in price between 1,000 and 3,000 dollars a piece.

Some military brides say the program has been a life saver. "It is great what they are doing and it helps a lot with all the stress of planning a wedding."

"What they are doing here is amazing, it is, and it is a dream come true for her."

Al' amour boutique hopes to make this an annual event.
