So you’ve clocked our sample wedding dress sale? Sample sales are an awesome way to get an incredible dress at a hugely discounted price (typically 50-75% off the retail price, with some of our Jasmine dresses even more than that!). Dress shops will typically run sample sale once or twice a year. They often hold them just before they are due to receive that year’s new line of dresses in, in order to clear room on their rails for the new styles. So, how to find your wedding dress at a sample sale? There are definitely some tips to bear in mind!
Our top 3 tips for how to find your wedding dress at a sample sale
Read on for our top 3, must know tips for finding your dream dress at a sample sale.
1. Come prepared
Do your homework. It definitely helps if you have been to one or two appointments before this, and you have an idea of what style you like. Research the dresses that will be available in the sample sale so you know what you want to try on.
2. Be ready to buy
The thing about sample sales is that the dress will sell, and fast. While it’s not quite the bargain rack scrum you might imagine (we try to make sure every bride who comes into our shop has the most amazing experience!), other brides are ready to buy. So what’s our how to find your wedding dress at a sample sale # rule? Read on.
3. Bring your most trusted person (our #rule for how to find your wedding dress at a sample sale)
This is probably the most important piece of advice we can give. Because sample sale dresses will sell quickly, and you need to be ready to buy, you need to have your most trusted person there (either in person or virtually) and ready to give you their advice. There’s no point in coming to a sample sale, falling in love with a (heavily discounted) wedding dress, and then booking a follow up appointment to bring mum so she can see it before you buy. There’s a 90% chance that dress will have sold before you come back. So if mum, or gran, or your best friend is the #1 person who has to give their seal of approval, make sure they’re either with you in the appointment or ready for your “call a friend’ moment.
