D.C. Brides, Get Psyched For The Most Insane Deals On Designer Gowns



carinesslide Dream wedding dresses don't usually come with a dreamy price tag, but lucky for the newly engaged, the gown gods are looking out for you. Whether you're planning to tie the knot soon or are just planning in general, next week's annual spring sample sale at Carine's Bridal Atelier needs to be on your to-do list.

Here's the crazy part: Not only is this a one-day sale, it's a three-hour sale — which means you won't have much time to get your hands on the barely-worn couture gowns from Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, and more. But the long lines and open dressing rooms (and potentially crazed brides) will be totally worth it when you snag that dream dress for 75% off. You might even be able to snag something equally fabulous to wear at your reception with the extra cash — or just order a few extra Mai Tais on your suddenly super-sized honeymoon. To each her own, right?

When: Thursday, March 29, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Carine’s Bridal Atelier, 1726 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-965-4696.
