Check this sh*t out -
Running of the Brides is happening this year in Cleveland at Filene's basement on 8/27/10. You can snag a designer wedding dress for $249, $499, and $699 (some of them marked down from THOUSANDS). My cousin did this last year and got a fabulous dress that she looked amazing in but obviously went through hell to get it. It's a good story too.
I am all for a good story and a great deal, but my Lord, this intimidates me. I read on the website that one year, it took just 36 seconds for all the 3000 gowns to get stripped off the racks and the brides to start hoarding and bartering with them. THIRTY SIX SECONDS? It takes me longer than that to go to the bathroom. Also on the website, they give you tips on how to divide and conquer. Holy crap, it's like Viking Brides attacking Gossamer City. I just don't think I am cut out for that kind of cut throat shopping.
My questions are:
1) Is this worth it?
2) Would you find this fun?
3) You know you just basically get naked with everyone around right?
4) Do you think you could actually find a dress you liked in all this madness?
Read the FAQ for ROTB on Filene's website here. It's funny. Here's my favorite question:
I’ve heard all kinds of stories about how people behave at this sale—are they true?
Haha! Basically this means: "Are bitches crazy at this madhouse?"
Yes, bitches be crazy, and bitches be shoppin'.
