Accessories will also be available at the time of the sale. Below, please find some shopping tips and guidelines for our sample sales at both locations.

Tips & Guidelines to consider before attending a Sample Sale:

  • Sample Sales are NOT for first time shoppers. You should have a general idea of the silhouettes and fabrics you are interested in before attending a sale. 
  • Sample Sales are NOT for large parties. It is recommended that you limit your guests to around two to three people. Only bring those that are your key decision makers.
  • Sample Sale gowns are generally a bridal size 10 - 14. These will fit a street size 6 - 10. However, it is important to note that we can alter gowns down to smaller sizes in most circumstances. 
  • All sample gowns are sold AS IS. Alterations are NOT included in the price. 
  • Gown cleaning is the responsibility of the bride. A purchased gown may be stored at White Dresses until alterations begin for a $75 charge (should you choose to do alterations with us). Otherwise, you will be required to take your gown with you at the time of purchase. New breathable gown storage bags are available for $10, or, we can provide you with a plastic bag or a recycled breathable bag complimentary. 
  • Sample Sale gowns cannot be put on hold. 
  • Sample Sale gowns require payment in FULL before leaving our shop. Sample Sale gowns under $1,800 must be paid in FULL at the time of purchase. Sample Sale gowns over $1,800 can be paid in two payments (a 50% deposit during the sample sale and the remaining balance within 10 days of the sample sale). 
  • No sample sale gowns will be priced above $2,995. 
  • All Sample Sale gowns are FINAL. No exchanges or refunds for any reason will be considered.

Under the Ruffles: Scheduling Appointments

Our Souther Bridal Shops love hearing your questions and sharing our insight into how to make shopping for your wedding gown as easy as possible. The question we received today is really important and can help you land that perfect time slot to try on gowns with your family. Make sure to send your questions to either our Huntsville Bridal Shop or our Nashville Bridal Shop to see them answered on the blog.

Q: How early should I book my appointments? Should I schedule a few days ahead or do most shops require a week notice to be given to schedule an appointment? 

Easy - as early as possible, but no more than two months out. The earlier you can let our bridal shops know when you would like to come in, the better. However, we don't suggest booking for a date more than two months out since plans can change. In order to land that coveted 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. appointment time on a Saturday, you should at least plan on booking two weeks out no matter what time of the year you are shopping. If you are planning on shopping during our busiest seasons (at the beginning of each new year), three weeks to a month can ensure that you get the exact time slot you desire! Each shop is different, so check with all of the bridal shops you plan on going to in order to ensure that you are scheduling early enough to get your optimal time slot!
