In Bankok, Thailand, a fun event featuring women running a race in wedding dresses has captured the imagination of the country.
This year, 250 brides put on their wedding dresses, laced up their sneakers, and ran 2.5 miles in the annual “Running of the Brides.”
The brides were accompanied by their fiancés, who – of course – had to run the race while wearing suits.
And while it was fun, the stakes were pretty high, since prizes were there for the taking, valued at about $28,000, including a gown for the bride and a suit for the groom, wedding bands, and a honeymoon in the Maldives. (Footwear News)
