Still haven’t said “yes” to the dress of your dreams, but have your gown vision and budget nailed down? Then broaden your shopping horizons and consider a wedding dress sample sale, where designers and boutiques offer dresses up to 70% off regular price. Sample sales are especially beneficial for brides in a time crunch or with a short engagement since you’re buying straight from the rack. Be warned, though—this adventurous endeavor is far from the standard dress shopping experience, so adjust your expectations accordingly. Because so many other brides want to pounce on these gown bargains, brace yourself for crowded showrooms, makeshift fitting rooms, limited sizes, and having to act fast if you find a gown you love.
