Chicago, Events

Check out these photos from the Filene's Running of the Brides gown sale, held last weekend in Chicago. Hundreds of brides and their entourages braved the rainy weather and lined up hours before the doors opened at 8 a.m.—one bride's father queued up at noon the day before to hold his daughter's place in line. Once inside, it was a mad dash for dresses, with women carrying armloads of gowns and trying them on between empty clothing racks. The schedule of upcoming Running of the Brides sales around the country is listed below. —Heather Lee, Brides Chicago
