10 Top Tips for Finding Your Wedding Dress in a Sample Sale
The biggest ever Anna Bridal Sample Sale is less than two weeks away, so we have created our 10 Top Tips to help you find the wedding dress of your dreams with up to 80% off!
1. Find Yourself a Beautiful Bargain
Let’s start with the most obvious point here- there are HUGE savings to be found at a bridal sample sale! At Anna Bridal, our sample sale gowns have between 30%-80% off (and occasionally even more!), so they are the perfect place to grab a bridal bargain.
2. Plan Ahead
Bridal Sample Sales can get very busy, so it’s always a good idea to do some research and have an idea of what you are looking for before you arrive. Bridal magazines and wedding blogs are a great starting point when you begin looking for your dress. Consider the gown styles and fabrics you like, research designers to find the ones you love the most, and remember you can always contact us before the Sale to see if the dress you have your heart set on will be reduced.
3. Ask the Experts
With no appointment necessary, our sample sales offer a very relaxed shopping experience, however our expert consultants are always on hand to help you try on dresses, guide you through the gowns you might like and advise you about any alterations your dress may need. We will never compromise on the luxury service we offer, and will always be there to guide you through the process of finding your dream gown. So arrive poised with any questions you may have and we will be sure to help!
4. Luxury For Less
Our sample sale gowns are the same quality, designer gowns that we pride ourselves on; they have been discounted purely to make way for next year’s collections. At Anna Bridal, we take great care of our sample dresses to keep them in beautiful condition. A bridal sale is the perfect opportunity for you to find the high end, designer wedding dress you have always dreamt of for a fraction of it’s original price!
5. Arrive Early
Sample Sale gowns are highly in demand, therefore are sold strictly on a first come, first serve basis. We recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment- doors open at 9am!
6. Set Your Budget
We will never try and blow your budget, so have the amount you are willing to spend set before you shop in a sample sale and stick to it! We have many gowns priced at £999 (and some even less!), so there will be something for every bride. Bear in mind that any alterations your gown may need will be an addition, as well as any accessories. Which brings us on to our next point…
7. The Finishing Touches
It’s not only The Dress that you’ll find at our sample sales. We’ll also have shoes, veils and accessories available all at fabulously affordable prices; so whether you’re looking to complete your bridal look all under one roof, or if you’ve already found the gown and you just need the finishing touches- pay us a visit and complete your beautiful bridal look, for less!
8. The Perfect Entourage
We recommend bringing 1 or 2 people whose opinions you truly value with you to a sample sale- too many voices might leave you confused. Like Monica in Friends, brief your bride squad before you arrive so that they can help you select dresses that you’ll love- whistles are encouraged!
9. All the Small Things
It is likely that a sample gown will need a few alterations to be the perfect fit for you, however in order to give yourself an accurate depiction of how your dress will look when you are trying it on, make sure you’re wearing the right underwear. Nude and seamless is best!
10. No Need to Wait
Left dress shopping until the last minute? No need to panic! You will take your dress away with you the very same day; so if you are on a time crunch, a sample gown is the perfect option for you.
