i just went to the Brides Project in Ann Arbor with a good friend this weekend!  we had a very fun experience and i was amazed at the amount and variety of dresses they had on hand, as well as the size options.  i never had the traditional bridal salon experience myself (j-crew dress here) but they tried really hard to give my friend that experience. they had veils, shoes, bras, slips, anything you need.  i actually donated my dress to them as well and felt like it was a veryworthwhile endeavor overall.   oh, and my friend ended up with a simple but gorgeously elegant dress — for $100!!!!!!

@KCKnd2:  One of my good friends who got married last month got her dress at Church St. Bridal. The dress she found had been donated by Kleinfeld’s because it had been borrowed for a movie, so Kleinfeld’s couldn’t sell it because it was technically “used,” even though it was in perfect condition. My friend wouldn’t tell me the designer, though – the move story was all I could get out of her! – but I know it was major. A one-of-a-kind couture gown. It was gorgeous.
