My Running of the Brides Experience in NJ
Posted 19 October 2007 - 06:14 PM
I did the running of the brides today. I got up at 3AM to take the train from DC to NJ to participate. I was on-line by 7am and was one of the first 100 to get inside. Unfortunately, I was unable to find the dress of my dreams. I am glad to be able to say I had the experience, but I just didn't find the "it" dress that made me say 'wow'. There were plenty to choose from in all sizes, but since I know exactly what I'm looking for (drop waist/fit & flare, strapless, with some beadazzlement) So, my search continues. If you have any ideas, please feel free to provide desginer and style numbers!

You line up and when they open the door everyone runs in and justs grabs. BUT, after about 20 minutes a good number of the dresses are back on the racks and women are walking around trading sizes and styles.
A lot of women had success and you know because you'd hear bursts of cheering and clapping which meant someone had found their dress. Unfortunately, I just was not one of those ladies today.
As for bridezillas, there were a few, and some of the mothers of the brides were even worst, but overall it was a fine experience.
THE DRESS I'M LOOKING FOR...when I say fit and flare or drop waste, I mean it has a longer toro and is fitted all the way to the middle of the hip (as oppossed to stopping at the waist). I like this style because it shows my figure just enough. I would like a moderate A line skirt (not too poofy). So the good thing is, I know what I want, but the challenge is, I haven't found it just yet ;-) Let me know if you have suggestions.
