running of the brides®

If you've never heard of The Running of the Brides® at Filene's Basement, you are seriously missing out. I attended this event in D.C. with my sister about this time last year, and I don't know if it was the 278 cups of coffee or the pure adrenaline that kept me so excited about the day.

{Team UVA geared up to rush the store.}

Eight different Filene's Basement locations host The Running of the Brides® only once a year. Famous designer gowns are marked down $249.00 to $699.00, that can normally cost up to $9000! Union Square, NY is happening this Friday. Check the official website for dates and locations of all eight events!

I'll give you a fair warning though. HAVE LOTS OF SUSTAINABLE ENERGY. It was exhausting. Check out my recap of last years event here.

eco-beautiful launch recap

As reality smacks me in the face coming home from my wonderful trip to NYC and the few cabin fever-filled snow days, I wanted to share some 'net love I found from the eco-beautiful weddings launch party!

First check out the very urban, amazing venue, 632 Below.

Get a feel for the launch party from this video by Wedded Luxe on Eco-Beautiful's Daily Blog.

Always a Blogsmaid, the planner behind the launch, came up with this great idea to surprise the never surprised wedding professionals.

And a run-down, with pictures, from The Good Life.

Keep checking eco-beautiful weddings blog for more updates and photos as Katie continues to post!
