Shop This: The Bridal Sale at Filene’s Basement

What: The Bridal Sale at Filene’s Basement, affectionately known as “The Running of the Brides”

The Lowdown: Okay, there are a lot of reasons to love Filene’s Basement, but this is what they’re famous for: fabulous bridal discounts. Think designer gowns, originally priced from $900 to $9,000, marked down to prices ranging from $249 to $699. How is that even possible? If you’re a bride-to-be, or happen to know someone who is, mark your calendar now. And remember to bring your running shoes.

Shop: You know it’s not online, and you wouldn’t pick your gown off the ‘net anyway, so you’ll just have to go the old-fashioned route and show up at a store. The sale schedule kicks off on Oct. 19, in Lawrenceville, NJ; click here to see when the event is set at a store near you.
