Filene’s Basement will be holding its famous bridal event at the Union Square Filene’s Only. Hundreds of wedding gowns will be on sale on Friday, March 2, with an early opening at 8 a.m. Gowns that would normally cost $900-$9,000 will be sold for significantly reduced prices. All sales are final.

Some tips for the Filene’s Basement Bridal Sale:

1. SKIP THE DRESSING ROOMS, by wearing a unitard or very tight fitting garments (aka strip down to your spanx).

2. BRING AT LEAST TWO VERY STRONG PEOPLE WITH YOU, to hold your dresses and defend you from any crazy shoppers. Have these people score a great corner of the store for you to try on a dress

3. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE, GRAB IT, worry about trying it on later.
