Here Come the Brides!

I went to the Filene's "Running of the Brides" sale on Friday in Union Square primarily as a journalist who wanted to experience the chaos and secondly as a bride-to-be with slim hopes of finding the wedding dress that would inspire me to part with $300. I know that many brides are willing to spend thousands of dollars for the perfect dress, but this bargain fashionista is looking for a unique dress under $100. No billowy princess bride gown for me. I want simple, form fitting elegance. And although I didn't find a dress that suited my laid-back personality and my contemporary, slightly bohemian sense of style, plenty of women found gowns that brought them to tears of joy and inspired applause from the sisterhood of brides gathered around them.
