Hello style sisters, some VERY important London sample sale dates for your diary below but please take note of my top tips for Bridal Sample Sale shopping:

1.  Take a friend, not only for additional beady eyes and quick reflexes but also to make sure you pick something that you love and not something just because it’s a steal.

2.  Have an idea of what suits you and what you are looking for.

3.  Wear flat shoes but take heels with you (if you have your wedding shoes great but if not something similar to what you expect to wear)

4.  If you have a style/theme in mind for your wedding day look whether it be vintage Hollywood pin curls or Marilyn Monroe red lips, try to do your hair and make-up in that style.  It will help ensure you pick a dress that is perfectly suited to your vision.

5.  Take water and book something nice to do afterwards, to either celebrate a fabulous find or go back to the drawing board.
