Wedding Boutique Madness



Good grief! Have you been hearing all this chatter about the meanness of bridal boutiques? Apparently, it's enough to make some brides turn their backs on these shops altogther. Filene's Running of the Brides is more popular than ever as women begin to suspect that the $6,000 gowns they got for $400 may never have been worth 6K to begin with. So we already knew that many brides to be were looking for ways around "boutique-ish" prices, as demonstrated by THIS article on CNN.com.


And now it's come to this: Women being CHARGED to try on wedding dresses. Right now, it's only happening across the pond. But is it only a matter of time before this trend washes up on our shores? Shop owners say they don't have time to cater to women who aren't serious about buying a gown, or women who aren't even engaged but are trying on gowns "for fun". Read the full article HERE. Well there ARE ways to get around all the mayhem. We'll have more tips next week. Stay tuned.
