Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
Now that Turkey Day is over, the next big date on your calendar is probably Christmas Eve/Christmas. But not so fast–there’s another BIG date approaching that all you brides-to-be won’t want to miss! Grab your iPhone or day planner, and add this date to your calendar: Alta Moda Bridal Sample Sale, Saturday, December 10.
That’s right, in just two weeks designer bridal boutique Alta Moda will be hosting their annual sample sale. Brides-to-be are invited to line up early to shop a selection of more than 50 couture wedding gowns marked down 50- to 85-percent. Gowns start as low as $400, with many under $1000, from top designers including Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Anne Barge, Melissa Sweet, and many others.
Ladies, this isn’t your average sale: Last year, the Alta Moda staff arrived at the shop an hour early to find a line of a couple dozen brides waiting outside the doors. Yeah, this sale is kind of a big deal.
Anticipating a crowd of excited brides once again this year, the Alta Moda team put together a list of things you need to know about the sample sale:
- Sale hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, December 10 ONLY
- No appointments: First come, first served (wait list)
- Gowns are sold as is, alterations not included
- Only sample sale gowns will be on display
- No holds and all sales final–come ready to buy
- Most gowns are suited for street sizes 4-12
- Space is limited; only one or two key decision makers/guests per bride
So set your alarm clocks, arrive early, wear a warm coat, and bring hot cocoa or coffee to stay warm while you wait in line. Doors will open at exactly 10 a.m., and you’ll be welcomed into the shop to stay warm and cozy as you wait for your consultation. Once inside, your name will be put on a list in order of the line/arrival so you can find a seat and wait for your name to be called to start shopping.
Consultations will be limited to 40 minutes. Alta Moda will have many fitting rooms available to get you in your dream dresses as quickly as possible. You can expect assistance from an experienced consultant from start to finish. You will be able to select a limit of four gowns initially, but your consultant will help guide you and make sure you try on the right styles until you find “the one.”

Happy sample sale shopping, bridettes!
