Now hold up ladies, don’t worry, purchasing a TMB sample is nothing like that infamous episode of Friends, you know ‘The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress’! We promise no one is hiding in the racks and there will be no Monica Gellar blowing a whistle at you!

We’ve been listening to all your questions about purchasing a sample and we are here to give you all the information you need to purchase your dream dress!

Here is the most frequently asked questions in our our TMB guide to buying a sample dress!

What is the discount on the sample dresses?

Each of our sample dresses are individually priced based on the regular price cost, condition of the dress and age of the sample! Our sample dresses range from $800 - $3000, that is 30%-80% off the regular price!

How do I purchase a sample dress?

You can book your Sample Dress Appointment with one of our TMB consultants who will help you navigate all the sample options. Your consultant will be able to help you with sizing, style and discuss potentially alterations! All samples are paid in full at the time of purchase.

What is the difference between a Sample Appointment and a Bridal Appointment?

The main differences between a Sample Appointment and a regular Bridal Appointment are:

  • To streamline the process a Sample Appointment will be 60 minutes!

  • In a Sample Appointment you will be selecting from our sample racks that are organized by size instead of designer.

  • You will be paired with a knowledgable stylist who will be able to answer your sample specific questions.

  • In a Sample Appointment, you will be trying on samples. If you are curious about our made to order dresses, you can book a follow up appointment to browse!

Can I try on sample dress in my Bridal Appointment or do I need to book a specific Sample Appointment?

Yes! During a bridal appointment you can try on any dress in the TMB Dress Loft!

If I fall in love with a sample, but still need to think about it, can TMB put it on hold for me?

We are not able to hold any samples. Samples are purchased on a first-come, first-served basis.

What if the sample I love doesn’t fit me?

Depending on the designer and style of the dress, a seamstress can typically take in a dress 3-4 sizes and can let out a dress about 1/2 a size. We will provide you with a list of TMB recommended seamstresses to get your dress fitting you like a glove!

What condition are the sample dresses in?

At TMB, we take pride in keeping our samples in the most pristine condition possible! Having said that, some of our samples are newer than others and depending on fabric and dress design (beading, buttons, etc.) some dresses are in more pristine condition than others and the dresses are priced accordingly. Your consultant will give you suggestions on dry-cleaning options, if necessary.

How do I know which dresses in the TMB Dress Loft are samples for sale?

We have created sample racks for you to browse all the available samples for purchase! Your consultant will help you navigate the sizing and styles to find you your dream dress! If you want to take a sneak peak at all our samples, visit our TMB Sample page (starting August 1 at 1PM EST) that includes photos, sizing and specific dress details.
