‘Running of the Brides’

If you are bride, clear your calendar for this Friday.  Filene’s Basement in Paramus, NJ will be holding their famous ‘Running of the Brides’ sale March 28. 

Brides from far and wide stampede the store in hopes of scoring that dream wedding dress for a bargain price. This engagement is not for the faint of heart; it’s more like a team sport to find the best dress.

Women have been known to start lining up the night before just to be first in line.  Once you have cleared the racks, bartering ensues.  Bridal parties call out like auctioneers to other patrons for a chance to trade.

Take a look at this video.

It reminds me of that episode of Friends when the girls go looking for a dress for Monica’s wedding.  All geared up they have their whistles and running shoes ready.  Here’s the video if you forgotten.

Good luck Gals!

    Wow! I am a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Fanatic. I can’t believe they really have an event like this. The whistles are classic.
