SAMPLE SALE: tips & guidelines



We are excited to announce the dates for our bi-annual SAMPLE SALE.  It will be held Friday  3/18 from 10-5 by appointment, Saturday  3/19 from 10-4 by appointment and Sunday 10-1 first come, first served.  Sale gowns will be priced between $500- $2000 and designers include:  Anne Barge, Hayley Paige, Modern Trousseau, Augusta Jones, Amy Kuschel, Legends by Romona Keveza, Theia White, Jenny Yoo and Ivy and Aster.  Little White Dresses, mother of the bride dresses, cocktail dresses, shoes and accessories will also be available at the sale.

It is important to note that the sale on Friday and Saturday is by appointment.  This means that you will have a dedicated associate assigned to you who is familiar with our inventory.  They will assist you in finding the perfect gown for your wedding.  You will also be permitted to try on full-price gowns on these days if your budget allows. These days are reserved for the bride who is looking to have “The White Dress by the shore experience”, but is looking for a deal!

Sunday is first come, first served from 10-1.  This means that we will take brides in the order that they arrive at the boutique (or based on their position in line).  Brides will select their own gowns during this time frame and there will be rotating associates available to assist you. No full-priced gowns will be available to try on during the sale on Sunday.  As this is the last day of the sale, all sale inventory will be discounted by an additional 10%.  We will NOT be providing this additional 10% discount on any of the other sale days.  Please note that this is a sample sale shopping environment and not our usual experience.  Rooms may have to be shared to accommodate all of our guests.  It’s ok…we’re all girls!  And we all know that girls love a good deal!~ ~ ~

Here are some very important shopping tips and guidelines for you to consider before attending the SAMPLE SALE:

  • Sample Sales are not for first time shoppers.  You should have a general idea of silhouettes and fabrics that you are interested in before attending a sale, as this will help you in finding the best gown at the best price.
  • It is recommended that you limit your guests to no more than 2.  Select your guests wisely.  Bring those who are your key decision makers.
  • Sample Sale gowns are generally size 10.  These will fit a street size 6-8 and are generally best for someone who is 5’3”- 5’10″ and has a C cup and smaller.  We do have a small selection of size 12 and 14 gowns.  Please note that wedding gowns can be altered up to two sizes smaller.
  • Mother of the bride samples are generally size 12 and 14.  We also have a handful of size 6-10 samples.
  • All sample gowns and dresses are sold as is. Alterations are NOT included in the price.
  • Gown Cleaning services are available for $275.
  • A purchased gown may be stored at The White Dress by the shore until alterations begin for a $50 charge (should you choose to do alterations with us). Otherwise, you will be required to take your gown with you at the time of purchase.  New breathable gown storage bags are available for purchase for $10, or, we can provide you with a recycled breathable bag with our compliments.
  • We do not hold Sample Sale gowns for any reason.
  • Sample gowns require payment in FULL.  All sales are FINAL.
  • The White Dress by the shore may be able to provide you with alterations for your sample gown based on your wedding date and our availability. We also have referrals to excellent outside seamstresses in the area and across the country.

Have fun and happy shopping!
