Happy Veterans Day from Favored by Yodit Events - Get to know Brides Across America!

  Happy Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day, we are highlighting a great organization called Brides Across America that plays a role in making their dreams come true by giving a military bride a free wedding gown during a Brides Across America's Nationwide Gown Giveaway. Events are held twice a year in partnership with bridal salons across the country.  Deployments, financial hardships,  and other challenges unique to servicemen and women  can make it difficult to plan a wedding.

The organization garnered the attention of ABC's Nightly News in 2011 and 2012, and People Magazine article in 2013.  However, the highest honor was received during a 2012 White House event by Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. The event recognized twenty organizations for their contributions to improving the lives of military families. Brides Across America continues to support wounded warriors, post traumatic stress and employment for veterans. Learn more about Brides Across America at

Bridal Collection Hits Target...Yes Target!


The last couple of weeks I have posted a few retailers that now have bridal collections. A few were shocking to me, but none were more shocking than the news that you can now buy Bridal Gowns and Bridesmaid Dresses at the one and only Target.

Target is known to have wide array of products, but I would have never guessed they would extend their brand to wedding dresses. I mean really...who would think to go to Target for their wedding dress? All of the dresses are priced below $130, so if you are on a tight budget Target may be the place for you. The dresses are very simple and could definitely be dressed up with accessories. I'm not a huge fan of the dresses, but you be the judge. Would you buy your wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses at Target?
