Vera Wang Sample Sale Next Week

I just got in from a movie screening and got lots of ideas for new blog posts, but I'm tired so I thought I'd share this announcement instead:

Vera Wang is hosting a sample sale on Sunday, February 27th (12noon - 6pm) and Monday, February, 28th (9am - 6pm) at the Vera Wang Bridal house (980 Madison Avenue, 3rd floor, NYC - 212-628-9898).

You'll find wedding gowns, evening gowns, shoes and accessories at a huge discount!

Here are some of my sample sale shopping tips to help you make the most of the sale:

  1. Go to a sample sale with an idea of what you are looking for —- ball gown, strapless, lace. The best way to do this is to have already visited some salons and have tried on wedding dresses.
  2. Sample sale dresses are not used, but they will be need to be cleaned. Ask the salon for the name of a reputable wedding gown cleaner.
  3. Bring your mom or a friend with you. You'll need the extra help grabbing dresses from the racks and you'll also want their opinions.
  4. Bridal salons may not offer alterations on wedding dresses sold at a sample sale, so ask the salon for the names of recommended seamstresses.
  5. Sample sale dresses are listed as "Final Sale" so you can't bring the dress back for a refund or exchange. Make sure the dress you're interested in is really the dress.
  6. Above all, trust your instincts. If it's truly the right dress you'll know. If you're not sure, keep looking. You don't want to end up having to sell a sample dress on your own.
