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.

  • Wedding: September 2010 - Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Museum Reception

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!
