This is one little gem that i'm sharing with you, you lucky things!

Sample dress shopping can be a bit of a nightmare {believe me, I've been there!}. You have to queue, share changing rooms, it's dog eat dog and is certainly not the 'lovely' experience you'd normally get from visiting a boutique. However Belle Bridal does samples with a difference. They are a stockist of over 150 sample dresses ranging in sizes 8-18 from designers such as Ian Stewart, Ritva Westenius, Alan Hannah, Jenny Packham and Pronovias to name a few and with a general offer of around 40% discount on the RRP and dresses starting at £650, they will save you some serious pounds!

The showroom based in Whestsone, North London was set up by two {very clever!} sisters Jo and Claire after their mother who runs Berkshire Brides was getting an increasing number of enquiries from London and the surrounding areas. 

The great thing about buying a sample dress {other than the all important budget saving} is time-saving  If you are short of time in the run up to your wedding day, then these dresses are ready to take-away.  They are all in immaculate condition and if alterations are needed, Belle Bridal can also help with this as they work closely with a local seamstress to make any necessary alterations to give you a dress that fits like a glove. 

As they are home-based, Jo and Claire can work around brides busy schedules and open late evenings during the week and all weekend if required.  They say "It's such a great feeling to be able to help a bride that wants to wear that dress they have always dreamed of wearing but without having to pay the designer price tag." 

I think the feeling is mutual.
