Anyone going this Friday to the Filene’s running of the brides at Friendship Heights this Friday? I plan on going, but not crazy early or with a giant group of helpers, so it may be more of a show than a successful dress shopping trip I’m still trying to figure out exactly what to wear under my clothes to potentially try on dresses.

Apparently it’s a bit crazy and you have to wear something underneath you don’t mind being seen in. I think a lot of girls go with opaque tights and tube tops, so they can just pull the dresses on without being over or under exposed. (And bring a tshirt or dress to wear on top to and from the store). That’s what I would do at least.

Well I went there around 9:30am and it was still pretty crazy. Two hours later, I walked out of there with my dress! I highly recommend going to the next one if they have a winter/spring one in the DC area. There were still a TON of dresses after 11am.

I went this morning! I was acting as bridesmaid/helper to my best friend. She was looking for Monique Lhuillier’s Scarlet dress, with no luck. We actually went at 11:30 at night and camped out on the sidewalk! Worked out well for us–we were up very close to the front of the line and were one of the first groups in the store.

I went!! I am in DC for a wedding and my mom and I skipped out of today’s bridal tea early to go, haha. We got there around 2pm and it was VERY picked over, with lots of damaged dresses 🙁 I didn’t find anything, but it was nice to say I went!
