Beleaguered bridesmaids, your time has come. Faith & Whiskey, Lincoln Park's self-proclaimed "premiere brown liquor soaked and hard partying spot," is hosting a Bridesmaid Dress Party on Sunday, Sept. 5. Get there right at 5pm, when the doors open: the first 25 females who arrive wearing old bridesmaid dresses will receive $40 gift certificates to Local Lookbook Boutique.

While you're parading around in your ugly expensive duds, drink a$3 "Accidental 3Some" cocktail; gawk at wedding-themed movies like My Best Friend's Wedding; listen to traditional wedding tunes played by a DJ who has spun at "over 200 weddings in Wisconsin"; take pictures on disposable cameras and mug for the professional videographer; shove a bunch of complimentary party favors into your beaded clutch; and rehearse the 90-second bridesmaid speech you wish you could've delivered. The best speech will earn $100 cash.
