Get the wedding gown of your dreams at the famous — or infamous — Filene’s Basement Running of the Brides bridal gown sale, today, Friday, February 18th, when top designer gowns are on sale for as little as 10% of their original price. Prices are as low as $249 for wedding gowns that retailed originally for as much as $9,000. Filene’s Basement does not advertise which designers or which specific wedding gown designs, but this sale certainly has something for anybody willing to fight the competition for the dress of her dreams. And there’s plenty of competition. Filene’s recommends you shop with a team of your mother, friends, and/or boyfriend, to grab whatever dress they can for you, and then trade with other Bridezillas and their team members for the size and style you really want. Wear a sports bra and shorts or leggings, or a swimsuit, so you can try on anywhere, without wasting time waiting for a dressing room.
This year’s Running of the Brides event in NYC is at the Filene’s Basement Store at 79th and Broadway on the Upper West Side. Doors open at 8 a.m., but you and your team need to be on line well before that. Or, you could opt for sanity and avoid the Bridezillas by finding your wedding gown at discount online at The Aisle New York
