It’s that time of year again when all of our new samples are arriving. We LOVE when the newest designs arrive from each designer except for one thing….we never have enough room. So that means, bring on Sample Sale Week!!
This is the BEST time to buy a sample off-the-rack. Our sizes range from 8-16 and some of the gowns are almost new! Below are some tips on how to “attack” a bridal gown sample sale and have success.
- Be Open Minded. Sample Sale shopping can open the bride up to a variety of styles/silhouettes/etc that may not have been what they pinned on Pinterest. Having an open mind and working with your consultant to match your vision/body shape/style will give you an opportunity to have the best success.
- Consider Alterations. Bridal gowns are made to be altered. Don’t be shy to try on all sizes of samples. An experienced seamstress can fit the dress to each brides body perfectly.
- Be Ready to Say YES. Sample gowns sell fast. If you think this is your gown, do not wait. Bring the important decision makers with you so you are not in a position to have to walk away.
- Get Excited. Our sample sale includes gowns from every designer in our store including couture designers Matthew Christopher, LianCarlo, Amsale, Ian Stuart, Rivini, Alyne, Anne Barge and more. These gowns are high quality and well made. You are able to get these at a fraction of the retail price!
Our Sample Sale Week runs from August 29th – September 3rd at both locations – Wayzata & Nashville by appointment.
