Since I'm on the quest for my own gown, I thought I'd swing by the Kleinfeld's Sample Sale, which happened this past Tuesday. Jennette Kruszka, Kleinfeld's marketing director, showed me the ropes and gave me some sage advice (see below). To say the offerings were amazing would be the understatement of the year. I saw one lucky bride-to-be score a pristine $15,000 Pnina Tornai gown for only $1,499. Wow!
Jewels of wisdom for any sample sale:
1. Wear comfy undergarments and a strapless bra. You don't know who you'll be sharing a dressing room with!
2. Be ready to buy. You won't have a ton of time to hem-and-haw over a gown—some girl might snap it out of your hands.
3. Bring only one companion with you. It gets tight in a crowd. A smaller entourage means you can move more quickly.
4. Cash or credit cards rule. Leave your checkbooks at home.
