Do the words “sample dress” or “bridal sample sale” make you wonder what it means? Stock piece, sample dress, off the rack – they are all the same thing:
It is simply a dress in our store that has been tried on by brides! Never worn or altered, just tried on.
That is why it is a discounted price, because it is not new from the designer.
Our customers are able to purchase a sample dress right off of the rack, meaning that exact dress you purchase and take home! Sample gowns are excellent for a bride that’s on a budget, they are fantastic for a minimony, and a dress change for the ceremony or reception!
They are also great for brides in a time crunch or a shorter engagement, since they are purchased right off the rack instead of waiting for the dress to come in months from the designer. It allows our brides to get a designer dress at a discounted cost, and hey, who doesn’t like to save money where they can… especially when planning a wedding!
We take excellent care of our sample gowns, and they are just as good as new. Of course, like any dress you are able to take it to a seamstress for alterations to allow it to fit like a glove.
Most (not all) of our sample dresses are available all year for discounted off the rack purchase. We have scheduled week-long sales events throughout the year offering a large choice of dresses from which to choose, and flash sales that are only several hours long (but with much bigger discounts!) and announced much closer to the event.
Make an appointment to come in and try on many of our sample sale dresses or call or text 215-491-8500. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo family!
