...great minds...

On the heels of such a fabulous sample sale this weekend (thank you for making it so fabulous!!!), we can't help but to turn to the new collections and dream about the pieces that will soon be coming to live with us... :) :)

That precious Abby over at Style Me Pretty clearly has it on her mind, too, as she is featuring some of her fave collections today. And, no "fave collection" could ever be complete without showcasing the one, the only (bet you couldn't guess) Monique Lhuillier....

We highlighted some of the new pieces while at market, and surely we've made it known that the new gowns from her Signature Collection are nothing short of...well, perfect....The SMP post today reminded us that fabulousness is never out of season and it was time to revisit sweet Monique!

So these fabulous photos have been lifted straight from SMP (er, in Nashville, isn't that "covering" ;) ) - but they were too good not to share!

this? is called Magical...wonder why... :)

{ here's a little happy for you:::: the two delectable little numbers on the bottom are coming to live with us at The Bride Room! }

We can hardly wait for these couture creations to be here and made available to you.... The fabrications, the attention to detail, the amazing original heartfelt design that we see from her each season... Can't help in this season of thankfulness but to express an utter appreciation for her giftedness and vision. {gushing}

Sweet Abby - thanks for the reminder today and sharing more of Monique with your lovely and loyal readers. So glad to partner with both Monique and you...

Happy Tuesday ladies!

More Sample Sale Goodness!

We are thrilled to update you with some more details....thank you SO MUCH for all the interest and excitement for this event...we are really looking forward to a successful sale!

One very important and exciting update... one of our most valued partners in the business is expert couture seamstress DeNeal D'Angelo. She is truly a master of her so so many of our brides can testify to her amazing work and professionalism. DeNeal has hemmed, bustled, taken in, let out, and completely reworked more dresses than we can count. She is AMAZING and such a treasured friend of The Bride Room....

DeNeal is gracious enough to be present here on Sunday...that is right...a couture seamstress at your disposal to ask questions! She will offer opinions and help guide what is possible for altering a sample gown. This? Is such a huge benefit to a sample sale....the unknowns are eliminated and you can have every confidence in your purchase!

You don't even have to take our word for it ;) You can see some reviews of her work here.

We are expecting brides from all over Tennessee on Sunday....and now, we can definitely say we would be more than happy to welcome some Atlanta brides too :) :) This too-cute blog was very sweet to include us on her blog post. So fun!

Happy one-week-til Thanksgiving! See Sunday (if not before then!)!!!

Super Sample Sale Details!

You are invited to kick off your holiday shopping a little early with the Super Sample Sale at The Bride Room!

This Sunday, November 22nd, at 11am sharp our doors will open for the very first Super Sample Sale!

Our goal is for each of you to have the best and most enjoyable experience possible. We do expect a touch of craziness, but we are preparing the best we can with a few guidelines that should preserve all of our sanity and leave plenty of time and space for you to walk away with the dress of your dreams...that's what it's all about anyway :)

Please read over some of our thoughts and let us know if you have any questions!
  • The event is truly first come, first served. There will be no appointments and the doors will not open before 11. We will have a numbering system for allowing you in the store in the order in which you line up.
  • To that end, please know that we have advertised this event to over 12,000 brides in Middle Tennessee! We expect a large turn out, so if there is a dress that you have tried on and love to pieces, you might want to pop in one day this week and claim her as your own :)
  • We will not be holding dresses at all, for any length of time, on Sunday.
  • We are going to be extending the deepest discounts ever on not only dresses from each of our couture gown collections, but also veiling, jewelry, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and shoes. {Dresses starting at $199. Accessories/shoes from $50.}
  • We will also be offering special discounts on gowns that are ordered (if the sample is not eligible to be sold off the floor; if you prefer to order than purchase the sample, etc).
  • Our friends at Oakwood Cleaners have extended a generous rate for cleaning the sample gowns and also for alterations through their expert seamstress. Their offers alone make a trip to The Bride Room this weekend worth it!
  • Most of our samples are sizes 8 and 10. Please know that those sizes will vary from designer to designer.
  • Sample sales are paid in full at the time of purchase. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards except American Express.
We are very excited for this special event! Please feel free to call or email if you have any other questions. { | 615.297.9899}
