Be sure to mark your calendar for this year’s RUN FOR THE DRESS.  It is now a 2 Day Event, Sept. 13th and Sept. 14th at The Meadows in Lake St. Louis, Missouri.

Run for the Dress is the largest event of its kind in the Midwest – a HUGE, GIGANTIC SALE of hundreds of NEW designer named bridal gowns at drastically reduced prices from bridal shops in and around the Midwest area, and is an event you should not miss!  It’s held only ONE TIME every YEAR!   The deals are just that good!

Gowns are trend-setting styles including glamorous beaded gowns, sexy backs with illusion lace, and vintage inspired fit and flare styles. We have hundreds of gowns! Designers to name a few are Maggie Sottero, Mon Cheri, Bonny, Kitty Chen, Allure, Venus, DaVinci, Rebecca Ingram, Christina Wu etc.

We have been working hard to make this event a joyous and fun occasion – with plenty of beautiful dresses at AMAZING PRICES for your special day – but it will be a bit different.   With COVID-19, there will not be a mass “RUN IN” at the start.  We still need to limit large crowds.

To do that, you will purchase your ticket for one of six different time sessions over the two-day period:

The Bride +2 allows you plus two others to find, select and try on dresses.  The +2 persons such as your Maid of Honor, Mother, etc. are permitted with you as you select from the hundreds of dresses.  They can join you in the dressing room area as well.  If you want additional people to “shop” with you, you can purchase a guest pass for $15.00 per person.   If you have additional people who want to come, and you don’t want to purchase a ticket, then they can stay in the “family and guest” area – however, they are not allowed to help with finding or trying on a dress.  When you find YOUR Dress that you think you want to buy, you will be permitted to visit the non-paying guests in the “family and guest” area.  The “family and guests” area is where all children and men must remain.  The only exception to this is for a “flower girl” who may need to try on a dress.

You will receive an email confirmation from us, sometimes a few days after you register, but we also have the list of everyone who has purchased tickets, so don’t worry about misplacing your receipt or confirmation.


To participate in Run for the Dress you can purchase a ticket for any one or more sessions based on a specific time.   Ticket quantities are limited per session.  Sessions are as follows:

Sunday – Sept. 13th            11 am to 12:45 pm                          $30.00   1 Peron, $45.00 for up to 3 Total.
