As one of the only wedding gown brokers in the country, it always tickles me when brides come in and say "I don't mind if a gown has been worn, I am looking for a deal!" What makes me giddy is to explain that The Barefoot Bride, Memphis' premier bridal boutique, brokers wedding dresses for major manufacturers, wedding designers and bridal salons across the country to sell overstocked, sample, discontinued wedding gowns at huge discounts straight off the rack.
Our brides save 30 - 80% off wedding dresses that have never been worn. As a matter of fact only 1% of our over 1500 wedding gowns have actually been consigned. Most of those have never been worn; coming from cancelled weddings or brides with two gowns!
Well, heck you say! How does THAT work? It's easy ... traditional bridal salons hang sample gowns in sample sizes for brides to come try on and order in the correct size. In 3-5 months the gown arrives! When the gown is no longer available, the salon, designer or manufacturer can no longer order/sell it. This is where we swoop in to take inventory off their hands and offer it to our MidSouth and Memphis brides at significant discounts! Same BIG designer names ~ same quality ~ just better prices.
Is just saving moola the benefit? NOPE! ~ Check out many great reasons to buy from a The Barefoot Bride wedding gown broker ~
- Instant Gratification ~ Brides walk out of the store with their Barefoot Bride wedding dress!
- Sizing ~ No surprises on sizing because you can actually try on gowns in YOUR size not sample sizes!
- Variety!! The Barefoot Bride's wedding dress inventory changes daily. You never know what you'll find ~ you just know it's going to be a steal of a deal!
- Save save save!! Only a few "gently loved" gowns(less than 1% of our inventory) in stock which have all been professionally dry cleaned to ensure they are in pristine condition!
- BIG name designers not found in Memphis or the Mid South allows you to create your own personal style.
- Personalized Service ~ Open by appointment provides the bride a private one on one experience to ensure they find the "one". The Barefoot Bride staff is trained to work with our brides to find them the perfect gown in a stress free, fun, no pressure environment. Since our inventory changes daily, a bride may not find what they are looking for the first time - not to worry, we'll give you a shout if we see something that will work for you!
Call us crazy but we love what we do ~ don't be surprised to see The Barefoot Bride at your local bridal salons chasing down overstocks or stalking designers at the national Bridal Markets to get them to let us broker their gowns! We do what it takes to bring the best wedding dresses to Memphis and the Mid South ~ We love what we do!!
