Though Filene’s Basement has closed its doors, Washington brides-to-be can still engage in the celebrated tradition of racing for an affordable dream dress. On Friday, Loehmann’s in Chevy Chase will host “Grab the Gown,” a one-day bridal event showcasing hundreds of high-end, discounted wedding dresses.
Brides can shop more than 600 gowns from designers like Casa Mia, Christina Wu and Demetrios. The store will turn its second floor into a bridal boutique on March 8. Gowns originally priced up $12,500 will be discounted to as low as $300.
Loehmann’s will open early for the event at 7 a.m.
