One woman checking out the wedding dresses at Loehmann's "Grab the Gown" event in Friendship Heights on Friday, March 8, 2013.

Nearly 100 bargain hunters and brides camped outside the Friendship Heights Loehmann's Friday morning for the "Grab the Gown" event. The national upscale, discount-price retail store's one-day sale began at 7 a.m., but the first person in the line arrived at 4:45 a.m.

"I'm trying to find a nice, designer gown for my wedding," said one woman in the line. "They have really good deals today. Apparently the most expensive dress is $12,500, and everything is marked down to less than a thousand."

Loehmann's will feature the large boutique-like set-up of wedding dresses on the store's second floor.

Shoppers will have access to a collection of over 600 designer wedding gowns from brand names including Allure Bridal, Bellisima, Casa Mia, Christina Wu, and Demetrios.
