Are you getting married this year? Are you a little short on time? Or perhaps you are marrying next year and want to start thinking about your dress? Now is a good time to come and see us as we begin our sample sale (they only happen 2/3 times a year so don’t miss out!)
What is a sample sale?
‘Samples’ are dresses in store which have been tried on before, but never outside the shop. They may have minor dust marks underneath but are generally in good condition and we will always make this clear to you. Often we are forced to sell off the sample if the designer discontinues the dress and this is the case of ‘Benjamin Roberts’ who sadly have recently closed their business. (please note all previous orders are safe and dresses have already arrived in-store)
A sample dress is the perfect solution if you have a strict budget or have fallen in love with something in store but are looking to save some money.
All sample gowns are at least 50% off! Below is just a selection….

Tips for Sample Sale shopping…..
Know what you want and go for it!
Like any form of sale shopping, the key is to know what you want! Have you tried on some dresses before? Perhaps you have visited us before and identified styles which suit and ones to avoid? If you haven’t tried on anything before then Sale is probably not the right time to visit us as you’ll want the time to explore different styles before settling on the one so come and see us beforehand! (sale appointments are only 1 hour)
The important thing to remember about Sample dresses is that there is only one. That means we cannot order in another size for you so you do need to fit the dress we have- we can take dresses in and there is a small about of tolerance to take out but this is very minimal.
Perhaps you are on a budget and cant quite stretch to a brand new dress you’ve seen with us before but you already fit our sample perfectly- then what are you waiting for! This is what Sample Sales are about- you get to pick up the dress you always wanted but at up to half the cost- just think what else you could spend that money on!
If you find what you want, then don’t delay!
The other thing to remember is- when it’s gone it’s gone! We only have one at that price so please don’t delay if you find the dress you love and it fits you. To be fair to all our customers we cannot hold sale dresses and we’ve got some really strong ones in the sale this year so if you do find it, don’t wait as it probably wont be there when you come back!
Make sure the dresses are in good condition but accept they might not be 100% ‘new’
All dresses in the sale are either current dresses or those which have recently been discontinued from the designer- we aren’t just bringing our old stock we cant sell! These dresses have been on our shelves recently at full price so are a bargain!
Like you, we don’t like to compromise, so we try and keep our dresses as clean and tidy as possible so you don’t feel compromised when you are buying the most important dress of your life. All our dresses are in excellent condition but occasionally there maybe some small marks on the dress in subtle places – the dresses have been tried on before but only in the shop and you make see some marks on the underside of the hem- this is usually very minimal and often once they have been hemmed this is cut off!
Remember full payment is required for sale items!
Finally, please remember that as we are discounting the dress, we do ask for full payment – we cannot accept part payment or deposits on sale items. We do ask that all sale dresses are collected within a month of purchase and we can give you the details of our very talented seamstress who will be able to alter your dress to fit you perfectly- at a time to suit you!
