If you're a blushing bride-to-be who may turn into bridezilla if you don't get your dream Monique Lhuillier wedding, clear your schedule on Sunday, August 23rd. From 10am to 4pm, the iconic designer is hosting a one-day-only sample sale in Vernon, and the blowout promises markdowns from 40-90% off.
Set to offer a generous range of styles for every bridal occasion (rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, engagement party, after-party), expect favorites from Lhuillier's signature, platinum, and bliss collections, along with shoes, hair accessories, and veils. Gowns will range from $200 to $4,000.
Now, the fine print: first come first serve, cash/credit only, all sales are final, no alterations, no dressing rooms. The designer suggests wearing tight-fitting clothing (tank tops, leggings, etc) to try on gowns comfortably in public.
