JOIN US SATURDAY MAY 6TH AT 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM FOR OUR ANNUAL IN SHOP SAMPLE SALE
For those of you who cannot make it in person or want to avoid the crowds and have been eyeing certain pieces, we're hosting a web flash sale the day before the sample sale.
ON MAY 6TH WE ARE HAVING A WEB FLASH SALE FOR 24 HOURS
What is a Sample Sale?
Gowns available for purchase are those that have been used as in-store samples that are in great condition but offered at a heavily discounted price(30-70% off). They are perfect for brides with quickly approaching summer weddings and are ready to say yes!
The sale will be by appointment only because even with the excitement of a sale, we want your experience to be special and effortless. During this time you will have30 mins to try on your favourite sample gowns. Historically gowns are sold very quickly so we advise our brides to come ready to make a decision. We also recommend this not be your first bridal experience due to the fast paced nature of a sample sale. Each bride maybring a maximum of one guest to help them shop.
Thanks to our talented local seamstresses and cleaners, purchasing a sample gown can be stress-free. Altering a dress to your specific measurements and fixing minor flaws is a simple repair and oftentimes a hem is all you need to brighten up any bottom discolouration. To assure that ‘like new’ condition we always suggest keeping an approximate $500 alteration budget in mind. This approximate budget is recommended for both sample and brand new gowns as alterations are always required no matter the condition and closeness of fit.
If a gown is too big it can always be taken in for a perfect fit. Most dresses can also be slightly taken out if it is a bit tight through a seam allowance. The majority of our sample gowns range from a size 6 - 12.
Sample sale prices range by designer and condition of the gown. We recommend having a budget of $2000 for a wedding gown and you may be pleasantly surprised. This year gowns will start at just under $1000 and range to $4500. We have a high standard for the condition of our gowns which often just require a simple spot clean and no dry cleaning as it can be very harsh on the quality of a gown.
We are so excited to be a part of your special day and cannot wait to help you find the one.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and make sure to keep an eye on our Instagram for sneak peaks of gowns we're adding to the sale.
