I purchased my first dress at running of the brides. It's ok. I had fun and you can find some great deals there (if you don't mind being stepped on and pushed)....but make sure you love the dress and not the deal!


I still have my dress and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. I settled bc I *liked* it and the price was awesome, plus I waited in line for sooooo long =(

Plus I went with only one girlfriend and some of the girls had gangs of like 25 people with them and they would hoard all the dresses, including ones that were clearly not their size! And they wouldn't give them to you! You had to trade them for something they liked.


Some of the people there were actually very rude! Moms especially! Have you seen that episode of friends? haha...

LOL, this always makes me think of that episode of friends with Monica and her whistles. It's just crazy!

I commend any bride who goes through with it,  I would never have the courage or patience to do it!

i actually wanted to do this. i'm always up for a good deal and it seemed like fun. my sister (MOH) was totally against it though b/c she didn't want to get trampled by rude brides and their supporters. the one in nyc just happened in february which would have been too late for me to go dress shopping and i already found my dress back in december. i would definitely still be up for it if a friend was interested, but i'm glad i got the full dress shopping experience without the pushing and shoving.

haha I'm a culprit...Notice in my bio...I'm sitting on a pile of dresses!


But...in my defense, the dresses were huge and my pile turned out to have only like 2.5 gowns =)

I totally agree. While my dress was important, it's more important that I'm getting married! My mom made me stop and realize, you should have fun, enjoy the process, and don't stress the small stuff.


Easier said than done, but I'm trying =)

I would have stolen a few of those dresses... I kept looking at people... like there is available merchandise on the floor and no one is taking it... I guess I was waiting for a cat fight. =o)
