|Some of the amazing pieces to be found at the Gilt Groupe Wedding Week sale.|
I am a self-professed shopping addict – and Gilt Groupe has definitely played it’s role in this habit. Online Sample Sales are a fantastic way to score incredible deals on designer wares that you might normally not be able to afford. Some sample sales offer discounts up to 80 – 90% – most are closer to 40 – 50% discounts.
I’ve been hooked for the past two years, so I’d love to share some tips with you before the incredible Wedding Week they have planned:
- Scope out the Designers and any preview pieces. This can help in one of two ways – first you can preview to see just what to target first to ensure it doesn’t get snapped up. Secondly, you can find the piece(s) at a local department store and try it on to ensure a proper fit.
- If you’re buying a Wedding Dress, pay attention to their sizing recommendations and when in doubt, order a size up. You can always have it taken in.
- If you’re buying Shoes, pay attention to their sizing recommendations and when in doubt, order two sizes. You can return one pair and have those Louboutins for the sample sale price, plus a little extra in shipping and returns. Be forewarned: They may only allow return credits.
Here is the schedule for the Wedding Week’s Events:
