I kid you not. This is the lead story on this morning’s news. Women have been waiting in line overnight to buy wedding dresses on sale from Filene’s Basement, including one woman on crutches who drove at least 6 hours to get here. This is not Boston, and it’s the first time it’s been done in this town, but still!! At the Boston store, according to this story, not only do women wait overnight, but they’ve been known to strip the (tied down) racks in less than 1 minute. Before this turns into a Pit rant, let me ask the question.
Would you wait overnight to buy a wedding dress, braving crowds? If so, why? If not, what would you do? How about taking a day off from work?
I’m female, unconventional and cheap, but I couldn’t do that. Back when I was engaged and broke, however, I was planning on sewing my own dress.
