We all love a sale! And when planning a wedding let's be honest getting everything you dream on your budget can be a little stressful! We dare ask how many times your have looked at your budget spreadsheet. So we may have a little bonus for you, if have had your heart set on a designer gown but it's a little more than your budget will allow maybe consider a sample designer gown. The demand for designer gowns is so high that for the first time, iconic Sydney bridal store, Helen Rodrigues, will be holding an End of Financial Year clearance sale later this month. Dozens of international designer sample dresses will be sold at a fraction of their original cost.
Luxury sample gowns include Oscar De La Renta, Jenny Packham, Inbal Dror, Sabrina Dahan, Zuhair Murad, Alon Livne and Monique Lhuillier.
According to Helen Rodrigues, the bridal trend of buying a designer sample is on the rise and it’s not just for those looking to spend less on their dress. Some women with short engagements, or those tying the knot overseas, don’t have time to invest in multiple fittings, yet still want a stunning designer bridal gown they can buy straight off the rack.
Sample gowns are also popular for those wanting a second gown to change into during their weddings. Weddings aside, other women also just love the opportunity to get an incredible designer dress for a special occasion at an amazing price.
These gowns are in high demand because in many cases, they are just like brand new. Usually they’re ex floor stock that have been tried on, discontinued stock or samples used for photoshoots or shows.
The Helen Rodrigues sale will be taking place at their sister store, Sincerely. Sincerely is an extension of the brand into affordable luxury, with the added benefit of experienced and personalised service.
