You have been asked to be in another friend’s wedding again this year and already have a closet filled with all of your old bridesmaid dresses that you never wore a second time. What to do?
We have just the place where you can show off your stylish (or in some cases, not so fashionable) taffeta gowns – at the 2nd Annual Boston.com's Running with the Bridesmaids on Saturday, September 28.
Here, you and more than 1,000 other women can dress up in your slightly-used bridesmaids dress or distinctive wedding finery and come together to benefit the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston. The one-mile run starts and ends in Downtown Crossing and runs around the Boston Common. There will also be a post-race reception at Petite Robert Central Bistro.
Prizes will be given out for the best of the worst dressed bridal party and the best of the worst dressed individual. Prizes include a weekend getaway at Mohegan Sun, an overnight stay for two at the Boston Harbor Hotel along with dinner at Strega Waterfront, a rest & recreation package at the Omni Mount Washington Resort and a day of beauty at Fascino Salon and Spa.
Registration is $25 and will take place at Walgreens in Downtown Crossing, located at the corner of Summer and School Streets. For more information, visit www.boston.com/bridesmaids.
