This one's for all you budget brides out there: Philly AIDS Thrift is hosting its first ever bridal gown sale. The new, gently used, and vintage gowns—from labels like David's Bridal, Paloma Blanca, and Vera Wang—will take over the racks within the newly expanded non-profit thrift store's third floor community room. Store manager/co-founder Christina Kallas-Saritsoglou tells us that the gowns will be in sizes 0 to 26 and priced between $75 and $300, and we can also expect shoes and accessories. The guys can get in on the action, too, with the sale's selection of men's formalwear.
Scope out the awesomeness on Sunday, March 23, from noon to 5 p.m. Oh, and don't pass up the complimentary sweets from Ms Goody Cupcake. For more wedding coverage, follow this link.
