Top 10 Things NOT to Do When Shoping for a Wedding Gown....

Filene's Running of the Brides: A Bad Idea for the Feint of Heart

When one plans a wedding, it's probably a good idea to get some kind of dress. Sometime, that's not so easy.  At least I knew to stay away from the Running of the Brides.....

In no particular order:
  • Shop with a bride who is 17 years younger than you are.
  • Shop with a bride who is a size "0".
  • Combine the above 2.
  • Wear ratty granny panties.
  • Shop on a 100 degree day, in a bridal salon with no A/C.
  • Shope before you lose that 25 lbs.
  • Tell the bridal consultant your REAL budget.  Cut it in half, because you know she'll be bringing you dresses that are "at the top end" of your stated budget.
  • Give a bridal salon your REAL phone number.  There ought to be a special bridalcodicil to stalking laws.
  • Shop is a salon that only stocks single digit sample sizes.  Unless you are bride #1 above.
  • Fall in love with any dress. This simply guarantees it will be discontinued last week.
