As 2021 comes to a close, it’s time once again for our fabulous wedding dress sample sale!
Many brides do not know what exactly a “sample dress” is or what this means. Allow me to explain, and get you hyped on how amazing an opportunity this is to save big on a dress!
We purchase newly designed wedding dresses (“samples”) from our designers for the spring and fall seasons. So twice per year, we receive a number of dresses from all of our designers and that means we must hold a sample sale to move some of them out of the store to make room.
Because we hold these every year – sometimes twice/year with the National Bridal Sale held typically in July – each sample sale has very new dresses! It is rare that a dress is old or out of style because they are claimed before that happens, however, there are a few who have been waiting for their bride and are as low as $99!
Some dresses may have been discontinued by the designer for a number of reasons (difficulty in obtaining a certain fabric, lace, or beading is a big reason now) so they need to be sold off the rack because they cannot be ordered anymore.
Others we simply offer the opportunity for the bride to get a beautiful dress at a price that fits her budget. It’s a win for us to free up space and a win for brides to save!
At the sample sale, you can choose from plenty of dresses and see the original price and the marked down price. Keep in mind the sizing in the bridal world runs small, and all designers cut differently so you may try on different sizes that all fit!
Once you say yes, it’s all yours! It is perfect too for those on a time crunch where you can take the dress from our store right to one of our seamstresses who will take care of your hem, bustle, tweaks, etc. and get you on your way to the aisle!
Although we definitely keep our dresses are clean, some choose to have it professionally cleaned after the alterations are complete. We can have that done for you through our gown cleaning/preservation company for a price that is better than a dry cleaner!
Here are some examples of dresses being offered at the sample sale:
