Brides-to-be on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress invade Filene's Basement.



Okay, maybe not 27,000 dresses, but a few thousand line the racks for the Running of the Brides, which began this morning in New York’s Union Square Filene’s Basement.

Hundreds of women poured into the store at 8:00 am, ripping every swatch of satin, silk, and tulle off the racks in a matter of 60 seconds.

Women have been known to bring in signs displaying their size and preferred styles, colors, etc. Good luck, ladies!
