Our Top tips for Sample Sale shopping!

So you’ve got the Man! The beautiful ring…now all you need is a beautiful dress to match!

We are hosting our Annual Sample Sale and we are super excited to say that it is one of our biggest Sales yet! We simply have far too many beautiful gowns in the boutique and we are quickly running out of room! So, sadly it is time to find some of our beauties a loving home!

We all know what high street sales entail and ours can be just as busy, but we completely understand that you may ask what is a Bridal Sample Sale exactly?!

Bridal is another realm of shopping and that is for your dream wedding dress! A Sample sale is an amazing opportunity to find your dream Designer wedding gown at an amazingly discounted price! For those of you who aren’t entirely sure what a Bridal Sample Sale entails we will give you all the info you may need to make your Sale shopping experience a savvy and successful one at that! We want every bride who steps through our door to leave with their dream gown (and don’t forget some gorgeous accessories too!) at an amazing price!

A Bridal Sample sale means that we are selling of our boutique samples which we have on display for our brides to try on during appointments! Many brides find this to be a great way to purchase an amazing dress at the fraction of the price!

We always treat our beautiful gowns with the utmost care and we pride ourselves on looking after them lovingly. They of course have been tried on by some of our brides and therefore you may find that there will be some very minor imperfections. But not to worry we work closely with a fabulous seamstress and dry cleaner who can ensure your dress is as good as new ready to say your I do’s!

As well as finding your perfect designer gown at a bargain price our Sample Sale means that you get to walk away with your dream dress on the day! So for those of you ladies who are tying the knot in a very short time scale this is the perfect event to attend!

Our Sample Sales do not require you to make an appointment! You simply just come along ready to find your perfect dress! We highly recommend that you attend the Sale with previous experience of trying on bridal gowns as to know what style and shape you are looking for. This will enable you to make the process a simple and successful one!

Research is key! Take a peek at our designers on our collections page to see what we have in store! When you arrive on the day all you need to do is tell our expert team of stylists what takes your fancy who will ensure you find THE ONE you are looking for!

We have two fitting beautiful rooms and every bride who attends the size will be able to choose 3 gowns at a time, then with the help of one our talented styling team we will help you in and out of the gowns and will of course be there when you have your YES moment too! (We have the tissues ready so don’t worry!) We are friendly and  have great bridal experience, so fear not brides we are here to look after you!

As we know that you may want to have close family and friends with you when finding your dress, however we do ask our brides to bring no more than 2 guests to a Sale as our boutique is perfectly petite and our Sample Sales have proven to be very popular! We  like to keep the process calm and completely smooth for you!

The majority of our Bridal gown sample sizes are 12/14 and most  of them can be taken in by approximately two dress sizes by a seamstress dependant on the design.

We only have one of every beautiful gown in our Sample Sale so sadly once they are gone they are gone! Be prepared for that YES moment as you don’t want to miss out on your dream dress!

We require full payment for our Sale gowns on the day! That way your dream dress is well and truly yours!

Sold as seen you say? When we sell a Sample Gown this simply means that the full payment is required f on the day, and does not include any alteration or cleaning costs. We do not offer refunds or exchanges on Sale items, however we do ensure that all of our brides are absolutely happy with their purchase!

Any remedial work such as dry cleaning or alterations that may need to be carried out are a separate cost. We confidently recommend a highly skilled bridal seamstress’ and dry cleaner who will ensure your gown is fit for a queen! Both work from their own business’ and we will ensure you have all of the information you should require for the next steps!

We provide all of our brides with a breathable bag for you to take your bridal gown home with you to be stored in! Its is fully breathable for your gown and keeps it protected up until your fittings with the seamstress ready for your big day!

We do offer a steaming service whereby we steam your gown in advance of your wedding as to ensure that is beautifully ready for walking down the aisle! This is an extra cost of £35.00 and all you need to do is ensure that this is booked in with us in advance.
