Apparently, this is the weekend to play dress up in Dallas. We've got All-Con all weekend, the bunch of bananas Friday night, then the Greenville Ave. "parade," where more than 100,000 people will dress up in green and play drunk in the streets. Here's one more for you: "Brides of March."
At 6 p.m. on Saturday, downtown Dallas will be a swarm of women (and men!) wearing their previously one-day-only wedding dresses. The Facebook event says white wedding dresses only. I guess if you're that person and wore a yellow or pink dress on your special day, you're out.
The event starts at Belo Garden, 1014 Main St., and then the bridal party marches to Klyde Warren Park for a massive photo shoot (we hope!), then on to Cedar Springs for what we can only assume will be a night of debauchery and looks of surprise, accompanied by confused congratulations. If you're looking to party with some rowdy brides, they'll be dancing the night away at Panoptikon.
