Tis the season not only for festivities but also for you brides-to-be to secure your dream wedding dress at a fabulous discounted price with a host of boutique and designer sample sales taking place throughout December and January.
And this afternoon its our amazing Sponsor and top British bridalwear designer Caroline Castigliano that is announcing details of her upcoming sample sale at her beautiful Flagship Knightsbridge Boutique in London.
Taking place between the 27th December 2018 and 12th January 2019 – by appointment only – the world-renowned designer will be selling off ex-sample and past season dresses, with exquisite gowns priced from £900 to £2,500.
The ultimate Christmas wish come true, this amazing event will give ladies the opportunity to become a Caroline Castigliano bride while saving up to 70 per cent on their big day attire.
All wedding dresses in the sale are either ex-samples, prototypes, window display dresses or may have been worn for exclusive catwalk shows, though each gown is in great condition and range in sizes, from a high street size 8 to 10.
There is also the added bonus of a private stylist and alterations specialist to assist brides-to-be in finding their perfect dress at a fraction of the price.
Those attending will need to be ready to make a decision on the day and so are advised to try a selection of dresses on before going to the sale in order to narrow down the style of gown that suits, and also to attend with someone whose opinion, they really value (the boutique can only accommodate two guests with each bride).
The following sensational gowns will be included in the sale, giving you lucky ladies an idea of the incredible designs you can expect to view and try on at the event – though please be aware, there will only be one sample of each wedding gown so early bookings are advisable.
To secure your place at this not-to-be-missed event call 0207 590 9120 or request an appointment online here. Appointments are £15.
