If you’re planning to attend a wedding dress sale, or think that you might want to soon, here are give mistakes that brides tend to make during these sales! Hopefully we can help you to avoid making the same mistakes.

1. Not saying “yes” to your dream dress

One of the biggest mistakes during a bridal sale is to walk away from your dream dress, especially if it is a sample sale. If you walk away and then decide that you want to buy it the next day, it could be gone! Dresses at a sample sale are never guaranteed until you bring it home with you. If you leave it, then another bride might fall in love with it and buy it before you! 

Besides, a lot of dresses during a sample sale are discontinued… so once it’s gone, it will be hard to find it elsewhere!

2. Being unprepared

We definitely suggest that you come to a bridal sale prepared. What exactly does this mean? Well… as we’ve already mentioned, be prepared to say yes! You don’t want to miss out on your dream dress because you were coming to “just look” and end up finding the dress of your dreams.

We also suggest having some sort of idea in your head of what you’re looking for in a wedding dress. This will help you to narrow down styles, especially when there are so many gowns to choose from! 

We will get into this more in a second, but be sure to bring your closest loved ones to your appointment, too. 

3. Not bringing guests

Sometimes, brides come to a sample sale to just shop around and see what’s out there. While there is not necessarily anything wrong with that, you could be totally surprised and find a dress that you fall in love with! Trust us when we say that you will want your loved ones with you when that happens.

4. Trying too many dresses

While it is so much fun to try on wedding dresses and there is technically no limit on how many you can try on, we do suggest that you try to limit it. The reason for this is that the more dresses that you try on, the more confused and overwhelmed you can get. You may start to fall in love with multiple dresses and feel like you can’t figure out what you like and don’t like! You will also start to forget what some of the first dresses that you tried on looked and felt like. 

Once you try on one of each style of dress, start to narrow it down to the styles that you most love. From there, only try on those styles to start to narrow it down to what you most love!

5. Not making an appointment

Finally, one of the biggest mistakes that you can make for a bridal sale (especially our Black Friday bridal sale) is not making an appointment. Our Black Friday sale books up very early. If you wait to book your appointment, you might find that we’re all booked up! 

If you show up to the sale without an appointment, you will most likely be disappointed to find that we do not have any stylists to help you out, because they are all in appointments. You deserve a full bridal appointment, so we really want you to reserve your time so that you can spend the 90 minutes in a private bridal suite while working with a personal bridal stylist to help you find your dream gown! Often, brides find their dream dress because it is a dress that their stylist suggested them to try on.
