Many aspects of life have been put on hold for those serving in the military overseas and the families they are leaving stateside.
Now, Mestad's of Eau Claire is joining forces with 14 other stores around the nation to give away 100 wedding gowns per store later this month.
The gowns are brand new, donated by both the store and the manufactures, and are available to any bride who has served overseas or is marrying someone who has served. Deployment papers are required.
Store managers say it’s a way to appreciate the sacrifices the troops have made.
Another bonus to the offer is that Mestad's is also offering free groom's tuxedo rental with the same stipulations.
For more information, call Mestad's at 834-7744. The giveaway is on Sunday, April 18 at 8:00 a.m.
