I’m debating on it…but don’t want to get up that stinken early.  I know what I want to wear and I’m sure they won’t have it.  But I do want to see if I can find a dress for the rehersal dinner.

I wasn’t planning on it but read, Miss Pony’s post and checked the upcoming dates and realized the DC one is this Friday.  I wouldn’t mind going AFTER the madness subsides around 10-11AM if anyone is interested.  I have no one to go with (family is in NJ) so if anyone wants a buddy to just check it out with I would love that! PM me!

I plan on going after work. Best of luck to you all! I am mainly going to browse….and maybe luck out and find that dream dress for a good bargain 🙂

@MamaMima:  Good luck!  Are you going with a gang or browsing alone?  I think I may go alone.

@RGF:

If I lived near you I would totally ask to come be your wing-woman. I think that sounds like a blast!

I’ve been to many a designer sample sale in my life and lettme tell ya… I thrive on the “urgency” and and usually do pretty well at them!

Have fun and please post your dress if you get one!

@NJmeetsBX: I wish I had this friday free to go roam during the day. Perhaps when I get off work, I may pop my head in the store.  I am afraid if I find my dress now, I will end up buying 2!

@RGF: I live farther south and I would go, except I’d have to use a vaca day at work and I’ve already got my dress, lol.  But it’d still be fun to do 😉 I also doubt my boss would be thrilled with the sudden day-off request. lol

When/where? I’d love to help out/ be involved in the dress finding without having to try any on. 🙂

It’s so much fun!  Do go – we went about an hour after opening.  I tried on about 25 dresses and walked away with the one!!!  Just keep an open mind and try on EVERYTHING… it looks totally different on your body than on the rack.  I’m SOO happy we went!  It would be a great family day anyway!

@Radiant Bride: Well if you do you can sell the ROTB dress for a profit!  LOL

@RGF: Good luck to you!  Have fun and let us know how it goes!  I won’t be there for the actual “running.”  I’m free tomorrow so I may just stroll in around 11ish.

@MsYellowJacket: Do think I would be OK going alone?  No during the rush, later in the day.

@NJmeetsBX: Definitely!  You will be fine if you go by yourself… and if you find the dress, it will totally be worth it!

@MsYellowJacket:  Will there be fitting rooms or should I be mindful of the undergarments!?  LOL
