Running of the Brides: DC - TOMORROW!

An event popularized by the Today Show among others, Filene's now world-famous "Running of the Brides" (a take-off of Pamplona's Running of the Bulls) will take place in DC - TOMORROW, August 1 at the Mazza Gallerie store in Chevy Chase. If you don't have your dress yet or are looking for a designer dress at a discounted price - this event is for you! Dresses will range from $25 - $700.

Here's how the Filene's site describes the event:
"The day of the sale, brides-to-be and their helpers line up early. When the doors open, they run full speed towards the racks. In less than 60 seconds, the racks are stripped bare (store employees have to hold on to the fixtures so they don’t topple). The women grab whatever gowns they can, haul them off to a corner, strip down to their underwear and start trying on dresses. Minutes later the trading begins. Every dress, no matter what size, style or color, gets bartered for another, as each bride tries to find the gown of her dreams at a cut-rate price."
