Buying a sample dress is a subject often broached when a wedding date is rapidly approaching, or if a bride wants a fabulous dress at a fabulous deal. Sometimes, buying a sample dress is just a matter of convenience! Regardless of your reasons for being interested in purchasing a sample, there’s no doubt that sample gowns are a beneficial buy.

In honor of our upcoming sample sale, here are some reasons why buying a sample gown can have some serious pros:

  1. No Wait Time – because you are purchasing the dress right off of our sales floor, there is no time in between ordering the dress and waiting for it to arrive! The dress you try on during your appointment is all yours. So whether your wedding date is right around the corner, or you’d like to have a gown sooner rather than later –  a sample dress can be the answer. You can even take it home that day, if you so choose!
  2. Easy clean-up – more often than not, sample gowns need to be cleaned (to remove any signs of shop wear) after they are purchase by their destined bride. But fear not…this is easy! We offer cleaning services from Orange Restoration. We send it out, so no need to worry about toting the dress to and from.
  3. Ease Your Anxiety – brides often experience anxiousness in the interim between purchasing their gown and the dress coming in. “Will it fit?!” seems to always be the resounding question in a bride’s mind. With a sample gown, what you see is what you get (literally!) in terms of the way it fits.
  4. Score BIG on a Sample – sample gowns are, by nature, discounted. Often deeply discounted.Your dress budget’s selection is expanded if you are open to option of purchasing a sample. You can get a luxury designer gown for much less than the full retail price! Who doesn’t love a fab deal?
