INDIANAPOLIS — Planning to say "I do" amid a pandemic is a challenge on its own. For one COVID-19 frontline worker, an Indianapolis bridal shop is hoping they can help make saying "yes" to their dress a little easier during these trying times.
Marie Gabriel Couture is a family-owned bridal store in Indianapolis.
Pronovias, a wedding dress designer, has provided Marie Gabriel Couture a wedding dress to gift to a central Indiana frontline worker. The bride will be able to pick one dress from an option of five provided by Pronovias.
"We have worked with Pronovias for many years now and are one of their trusted and most important stores in the U.S.," Anne-Marie Colling, marketing manager of Marie Gabriel Couture, said. "As such, we were selected to host this special giveaway for one lucky frontline healthcare worker bride getting married in 2021."
The owners of Marie Gabriel Couture are looking for nominations from the community to help them find one bride who has been working on the frontlines of COVID-19.

"It is just someone who is out there and putting themselves more at risk than others," Colling said. "It can be kind of a stressful thing, selecting their wedding dress, and of course the cost of a wedding dress. It is just a whole weight lifted off your shoulders especially a bride that is working in healthcare right now has been going through, it is just one less thing you have to worry about and we are just excited that we are able to offer that to a lucky bride."
Along with the free Pronovias wedding dress, Marie Gabriel Couture will provide complimentary alterations as well so the dress fits perfectly on her wedding day.
