Bridal Sale Fail

16 Aug

Most of you who know me know that I am a bargain queen.  I’m always looking for a deal and planning this wedding will be no exception.  In fact, over the next year I’m going to have to work harder than ever!

So when I read about Lord & Taylor’s Bridal Blowout, I knew it was a little early to be dress shopping, but I owed it to myself to check it out.

The sale had its own set of rules, which I’ve included below.  Since I’ve been to my fair share of sample/warehouse sales, these made me even more intrigued.

I convinced LB to come with me, but once we walked in the door, we knew this wasn’t going to be the day I say yes to the dress.   There was a sea of dresses that were not only my style, but weighed about 30 pounds.

Sneaking in a workout trying to pick up these dresses

LB and I proceeded to try on the largest ugliest wedding and bridesmaid dresses for kicks.  We certainly figured out why everything was under $400.  But at the end of the day, the silver lining was that a great blog post would come out of our adventure.   xoxo db2be
