In tribute to those affected by the coronavirus outbreak, bridal designer Anne Barge announced on Wednesday the following initiatives which will support the healthcare community and brides-to-be across the country.
Anne Barge is partnering with its bridal salons to help provide a better tomorrow. To show gratitude to all of the health heroes who have dedicated themselves to helping our communities in need, Anne Barge will be launching the Health Hero Program. This program will offer a 20% discount on all wedding gowns for healthcare workers. All healthcare workers who purchase an Anne Barge gown from any of the 38 participating retailers will be eligible for the discount. This initiative will extend through December 2021 in support of all brides-to-be that have put their life on the line to help fight the spread of COVID-19. Healthcare workers only need to provide their medical I.D. badge or credentials to receive the discount.

As events are being cancelled and postponed across the globe, we expect there to be an influx of weddings taking place as soon as government safety restrictions are lifted. Many brides have been concerned about the availability of our seamstresses and having alterations completed before their wedding date. To help alleviate the stress of incurring any additional costs that may not have previously been budgeted for, Anne Barge will be waiving all rush fees for Summer and Fall 2020 wedding dress purchases.
The Anne Barge Bridal Atelier in Atlanta will also be offering incentives for brides who are supporting the brand locally. Those who purchase an Anne Barge gift card for $800 will receive a voucher valued at $1,000. This voucher may be used towards the purchase of a gown or accessories from the atelier. The voucher must be used in full.
As a luxury bridal and evening wear design house, Anne Barge always aims to inspire women and give back to the community. As the world continues to battle this pandemic head on, we want to provide a little bit of ease to those who are fighting on the frontline and have been affected during this unprecedented time. We are doing our part to support the industry even if it means our company will take a hit. This will definitely be a trying few months, but our hope is that we can all weather this crisis together with our personal and business health, says her team.
