Yeah, I've gotten that a few times. I most often hear that I look like the actress who plays Chloe on 24 (Mary Lynn Rajskub). I think I prefer looking like Katherine Heigl, haha.

Thanks, by the way - that's quite a compliment.

AD, I like the one you picked the most. The third one did look a little weird but I think the one you picked was very flattering and the beading looked really pretty!

So....Has anyone done the running of the brides? I'm doing it in October. I have a friend who did it and she said it wasn't out of control like you hear. She got a dress for $250!

I've never done it, but I hear the key is to just grab a bunch of dresses in your size and trade for the ones you actually want. You are very brave!

I did not go, but I heard from people who did go that you can go later after the crowds and still find a good dress. Good luck!

It looks fun but I doubt I would have found "the one" that way.

If you scroll down, they have a list of FAQs about the sale. Apparently, you can avoid the craziness and show up around 10am when everybody has put what they DON'T want back on the racks and still find a great dress. Also, other brides will "trade" dresses with other girls if they see that a girl has one that they want.

I don't remember which channel (and I didn't watch), but there was an hour long show on last night about the Filene's Running of the Brides.

It was on TLC, during their wedding marathon of shows.

It says that dress is avalible up to size 28. I can't imagine that dress working on anyone bigger than an 8, max.

We (this would be 9 daughters and me) adore Dessy! During planning for this current wedding, we've spent a lot of time on their website. The prices are right and there are so many colors and super styles.

Amen. I would hope that a size 28 bride would like herself enough to find something that suits her more than that. It goes back to "just because it comes in your size doesn't mean you should buy it."

As a bridesmaid, I always encourage the bride to check out Dessy. You just can't go wrong with them. A local store carries some of their styles at $100. It's great because you can have good quality bridesmaids dresses that don't look/feel cheap, but at a price that won't make the girls hate you.

ETA: Another Dessy destination bridal dress I like:
