So a friend of mine recently got engaged (woohoo!!! good work Tom! and congrats Mags!) which opens up a whole new world of possible blog posts.
Perfect timing because the nation-wide Running of the Brides is set to kick-off this Friday, September 16 at 8:00 a.m.
Now, it's exactly what it sounds like...a bunch of crazies, running and throwing bows along the way in order to scoop up their dream dress at basement-low prices.
Ahaha, I actually didn't know this was a real thing. I was first introduced to it during a CSI episode that has this description:
A woman is killed when a mob of brides-to-be fights over wedding dresses during the "Running of the Gowns" bridal sale.
Obviously I'm going to have to go by there early in the morning to snap some pics and witness some crazy. I assume finding a dress is stressful enough without having to battle other Bridezilla's but whatever, might as well go all in.
I might have to add this guy to the bucket list for the laughs. Their website offers tips on how to succeed in finding your dream dress ("Recruit your team and assign jobs").
Maggie's too tiny to participate, she would get trampled on but doesn't mean you should miss out if you're getting married soon
Here are the dets:
Filene's Basement One State Street Chicago, IL
Beginning on Friday, September 16 through the weekend.
