Well, you can do just that and still have enough money left over to feed your guests at the reception. The Left Bank (one of our favorite wedding boutiques) is having an incredible bridal sample sale this weekend, featuring the vintage-inspired dress collection from Fancy New York. The best way we can describe these gorgeous gowns is classic, so you need not worry about looking back at your wedding photos years later and regretting that leg-o'-mutton sleeve. Even better, all of the gowns (from tea length to full-blown Cinderella) are going to be deeply discounted — we're talking 50% off! There's no need to worry about getting trampled by a group of agressive bridezillas, as The Left Bank is requesting that you make an appointment. Very classy.
When: Saturday, August 4 (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and Sunday, August 5 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery; 1155 West Webster Avenue (between Clinton and Magnolia streets); 773-929-7422.
