Super Sample Sale | FAQ

Two days!!! Just two days until our 3rd Annual Super Sample Sale ...this Sunday, November 20! We are so excited! We appreciate all the interest and questions y'all have had this week....hoping we can prepare you for the fun and craziness that Sunday will bring.....

First...please know that it will not resemble anything quite like this:


But that you shouldn't expect an experience that feels like this either ;)

Though the Super Sample Sale is not like a typical, one-on-one appointment, it is still a lot of fun and there is a lot of energy.  A few questions that have come up again and again this week that we thought we would clarify :
  • What time should I show up Sunday morning? Ultimately, this decision is up to you...Doors open at 11…your arrival time is up to YOU. The line formed EARLY last year…but there is really no way to know. We can not predict when the crowd will start so we’re leaving that up to you….You can check to see when the tweets Sunday morning begin {you don’t have to be a twitter member to go to The Bride Room’s twitter and see the updates on Sunday}.
  • Will everyone be let in together? Is it going to be chaos fighting for a dress to try on? No! We allow 4 brides in at a time, allowed in in the order in which you arrived {see question 1}. There is a method to our madness...we promise!
  • What if I want to try on other gowns that aren't in the Sample Sale? This event is designed specifically for selling the samples off the rack. Dresses that aren't eligible to be sold will not be available on Sunday. We are more than happy to see you another day!
  • What are the sizes of the samples being sold? Most of our samples are sizes 8 and 10, though designer to designer, the fit of those sizes will vary. {Bridal gown sizes are simply not universal!} It is amazing what can be achieved in alterations, though, so don't shy away if you are not quite those sizes...
  • How many people are allowed with me Sunday? Though we don't technically have a limit, please be mindful that the experience is unusual as it is, and our experience has proven that a large group can be ineffective for you. One or two trusted, close voices in your life is ideal, and we are available to help consult and direct you, too!
  • Can I come to pre-shop? You are absolutely welcome to come today or tomorrow to browse; if you would like to try something on, please do give us a call or email us to set up an's a very busy weekend and the fitting rooms are almost fully booked!
