From wedding gowns to veils and every accessory in between, on Tuesday military families planning their big day were treated to it all.

From wedding gowns to veils and every accessory in between, on Tuesday military families planning their big day were treated to it all.

As a way to say thank you for their service, the Camden County Board of Freeholders organized a big event where everything was free for local veterans and their brides-to-be.

The more than 400 bridal gowns came from the Alfred Angelo store in Cherry Hill, which abruptly went out of business last year.

The gowns were turned over to M&M Realty Partners, which made them available to these service members and their families.

The Camden Country Board of Freeholders says this is a unique program and one of the only one of its kind in the country.

They say these brides saved thousands of dollars - just a small token to say thank you for their service and commitment.

They hope this is a tradition they can continue.
