            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!
