Filene's Basement HUGE Bridal Gown Sale

This Friday at Filene’s Basement is the annual Running of the Bride’s from 8am-9pm at the Chicago Store at The Finlene’s Basement at One North State Street. Filene’s Basement is known for its bargains on everything from fashions to luggage, but perhaps the store is most famous for its annual Bridal Gown Events when brides-to-be can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars on designer wedding gowns.

The sale is held in selected Filene’s Basement stores once a year. News reports so often compare it to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spainthat the event is now officially called the “Running of the Brides®.”

The day of the sale, brides-to-be and their helpers line up early. When the doors open, they run full speed towards the racks. You can snag an amazing wedding dress from $249-$699. For tips on how to best “tackle” this fun event, email
