Thanks for the info. I already have my dress but....you never know. I have always wanted to go to this so I might go just to see if I find something different.

You should try to go SB2Lennon if you can. Isn't this one of the great ways to get a designer dress for less? I've seen this on TV, I heard girls grab what they can and then trade with each other for what they want. Sounds crazy but fun.

I went last year. Took an early lunch at 11am and went by myself. I thought the madness would have subsided but it was still very weird. Though I'm sure MUCH less hectic than at 8am.


I did buy a truly beautiful Amsale gown for only $499. It retails for something like $2,700. I ended up buying another dress though, which reminds me I need to sell the Amsale...


Anyways, there are amazing deals to be had. Just try to have some idea of what you are looking for. and be clothed to try things on. I'd also recommend going with someone. It was pretty overwhelming by myself. I ended up going back with a co-worker.


If you're looking for a deal, it's the best thing going! :)

They should have a viewing area, cuz I too would love to watch but to be among the chaos on the floor may make me a little cranky!

Yeah I think I am going to try to go in, I guess brides sleep in the hall until the doors open and then go mad! They gather as many dresses as possible, hold them hostage and bater with other brides shouting out sizes and stuff... All this the day before I go on a cruise! yippee!

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
