Need A Dress?

Thanks to Temple of Groom and his lovely bride Rebecca for this one. Glamour Closet has just opened up a store in Los Angeles. Glamour Closet sells sample wedding dresses and bridal store excess inventory, all off the rack. Plus, a portion of all their proceeds goes to finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease.

The Image Bridal in West Los Angeles is also having a rack dress for the next few weeks. Tons of designer dresses, ranging from $99 to $3500. Thanks to Wenda at More Than Just Weddings for the heads-up.
