How to Shop a Wedding Dress Clearance Sale And Find Amazing Deals

When I went to the Opportunity Bridal Sale to shop for a wedding dress , I gave you six tips for finding the perfect wedding dress. During that sale I walked away with a gorgeous wedding grown for an amazing deal. Even more amazing was the uniqueness of the dress. I had never seen anything like it after shopping at other bridal boutiques and it fit my personality very well. My dress was made of organza, had a strapless neckline and a corset tie back along with beautiful feathers, bows and beading details.

A lot of people find clearance/warehouse sales intimidating and frustrating to shop at. Personally, I love shopping at them because you always find amazing deals if you know how to shop them and practice a little bit of patience. It's definitely an adrenaline rush walking out with the perfect deal. Read the tips below to help you build a perfect strategy when shopping at a wedding dress or any clothing clearance/warehouse sale.

1. Know What You're Looking For: To avoid wandering aimlessly and being overwhelmed, have a pretty good idea what you are looking for. I would shop a regular bridal boutique and then see if you could find a similar dress at the sale.

2. Dress Appropriately: Dress comfortable, and have comfortable footwear. You may have to wait in line and should be able to move around quickly while shopping. Also wear appropriate undergarments so you're prepared to try on any of the various styles you may find.

3. Ditch The Makeup: when going to a wedding grown sale, avoid makeup to prevent yourself from getting the dresses dirty.

4. Go Early: If you want to get the best pick of stock, you must go early. Unfortunately, most warehouse sales have limited models, and sizes.

5. Bring a Friend: Bringing a friend to a warehouse sale has many benefits. They can offer their opinion, help you look through stock, assist you in trying dresses on, and keep you company while you wait in line.

  8. Great tips and post!!! <3

  9. I agree, I am always up for a bargain (as well as the unique samples that can often be found at warehouse sales and outlets).

    Another thought is that for a dress that will only be worn once, it is probably wise to find a design for a discounted price (without compromising on quality and what you love of course).

  10. You, my dear, made for one beautiful bride; you look gorgeous in your dress! I agree with all the tips you've mentioned here for dress shopping. One thing I hate is finding a piece of clothing I love with makeup all over it, even more so when it's a wedding dress, it really gets in your head and can distract from trying it on and seeing if it's a perfect fit, even if it's a sample. Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you're having a wonderful start to your week so far!



    1. Thank you so much! My week is starting off pretty busy, but that's a typical Monday! :)
      Hope yours is starting off great as well! <3

  13. Wedding dress shopping was so fun for me but I do wish I tried on more styles! I also brought way too many people to my appointment and don't recommend that! Too many opinions

  14. Beautiful dress and great post.

  15. Always bring a friend! You need that second opinion. Great tips.


Always love hearing from you all. Thanks for the love and support!
