Sample Wedding Dresses
An economic way of getting hold of a cut-price dress is to buy a designer sample.
Check out when bridal shops are holding sample sales; be prepared and get there early.
There are often sample sale fairs held where lots of designers come to one place and sell off stock.
Keep an eye out in local press and in wedding magazines for ads or a listing.
There are now many dedicated charity wedding shops in the UK. These stores sell designer samples that have been donated at a fraction of the price, with proceeds going to a good cause.
