Planning a wedding can be expensive, but finding your dream wedding dress doesn’t have to be. Attending a wedding dress sale offers brides a chance to save money without compromising on their dream gown. Affordable wedding dresses are available by shopping wedding trunk shows, wedding dress sample sales, and the more popular off-the-rack wedding dress sales.
What Is a Wedding Trunk Show?
A wedding trunk show tends to be a special event showcasing a wedding designer’s collection of dresses and gowns, usually direct off the runway. The dresses may be part of a limited edition or a previous season’s collection not carried in other wedding dress boutiques. Many trunk shows are hosted by the designer at their chosen boutique or shop.
What Is a Wedding Dress Sample Sale?
Unlike a trunk show, a sample sale offers discounted prices on various designer dresses that have been part of a boutique’s collection for some time. These dresses have been tried on, but not used, by the general public as brides search for their perfect dress. Most sample wedding dress sales include discontinued styles from a variety of designers.
What is a Wedding Dress Clearance Sale?
Just as a clothing store has a clearance rack or sale, a wedding dress clearance sale offers brides a selection of dresses at budget-friendly discounts of up to 80% off the retail price. Clearance wedding gowns usually are of a small selection in terms of sizes and styles.
Are Clearance and Off-the-Rack Wedding Dress Sales the Same?
The terms “clearance” and “off-the-rack” wedding dresses are often mistakenly used interchangeably. Clearance dresses are selections that have not sold in a set time and are set aside in a boutique to be sold at a reduced price to make room for new collections.
Off-the-rack dresses are also offered at a lower price than most wedding dresses because of their “aisle-ready” status. These designer dresses are a fantastic find for brides who are on a budget. The beauty of off-the-rack wedding dresses is the immediate satisfaction of being able to “cash and carry” your dream dress.
