NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Many ladies said "yes to the dress" Saturday during the Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale's prom dress giveaway.

This is the krewe's third year putting this on for girls in middle or high school.

Each student could pick up to two dresses, accessories and shoes.

The gowns are donated by the krewe so that everyone can go to prom, and not worry about the costs.

Ladies took their pick from around 1,000 dresses.

"I thought it was going to be one of those Bridezilla moments where I couldn't find nothing that I liked, but I didn't get what I expected at all. I got totally beyond my expectations," Amari Thibodeaux said.

"Just watching their faces, we can see how ecstatic they are. Some of them just like oh, God, I couldn't even choose one. They end up coming up with two that they really really liked," Mystic Krewe Queen Kimberly McPherson said.

About a hundred girls stopped by, many leaving impressed with their dresses.

    The heat holds on through Sunday afternoon. High temperatures continued to range from 94-100 degrees with a heat index making it feel like 106-112. We don't get much of a break during the overnights with lows only dipping to around 80. The high pressure starts breaking down on Monday and push back to the west.
