I found my dress - Running of the Brides

Hey girlsI found my dress.  Today I went to Running of the Brides at Filenes Basement.  I had a ball.My sister (whom I love dearly) went and got in line for me at 2am.  I joined her shortly after at 3:30.  Because of my last minute dicision to go to Filenes only one other bridesmaid was able to join me.  SHe came around 7:30am though.  So since my sister was in line by herself she made friends with the girls behind us.  Whom happen to also be black.  Also the bride was getting married at the same venue as me 6 days before me.  We were also looking for the same size dresses but two different styles.So we decided to join forces and work together.  We were pretty close to the front of the line so 8am the store opens and everyone starts running and grabbing dresses.  We all meet up with about 40 dresses total and just start trying them on.  We had two girls handling the dresses we wanted to trade.  each of us a a girl helping us in and out the dresses and then two girls going out to find more dresses.  Two and a half hours later I was down to two dresses that I loved.  I called my mother and she came to the store and made the decision for me.  I didnt take pictures but my sister did so hopefully they will come soon

    Thanks guys.  I will definately pleased with my decision.  I thought I had picked out my dress and was ready to order it.  I would of been dress twins with KJDiamonds but I held off from ordering for Running of the brides and found a dress I liked better for alot cheaper.  I loved the whole expierence.  The running was so much fun cause we were towards the front grabbing dresses and trading.  Loved it all.  I just wished the rest of my girls were there.  I know they really wanted to come.

    Congrats! I found my dress at ROTB yesterday too! Its a Mon Cheri dress that I got for $250. I was afraid to do the "running" part at 8:00 am, but my mom, SIL, and good friend went at around 9:30 am and I was still able to try on at least 25 dresses. I had a hard time deciding between the one I got and another dress by Mori Lee (I almost bought both lol)...but I'm so happy with the dress I got!
