Get the wedding gown of your dreams at the annual Filene’s Basement bridal gown sale, Friday, February 5th, when top designer gowns are on sale for as little as 10% of their original price. Prices are $249 to $699 for wedding gowns that retailed origianlly for as much as $9,000.
Filene’s Basement does not advertise which designers or which specific wedding gown designs, but this annual Running of the Brides sale certainly has something for anybody willing to fight the competition for the dress of her dreams. And competition there is.
The best advice is to grab your mother, friends, boyfriend, to grab whatever dress they can for you, and then start trading with other Bridezillas and their team for the size and style you really want.
The Filene’s store at Union Square store is wedding gown central for this event, which is not for the faint-hearted bargain hunter. Be on line at 47 East 14th Street before the doors open at 9 a.m. Here’s what it looked like last year, when the grab-it-and-run insanity was covered by CBS News:
Even if you aren’t joining the Running of the Brides, Filene’s Basement offers year-round discounts on clothing, accessories and other items. And you can get 20% off those already-bargain prices by signing up for the Filene’s Basement Fan Club.
