"Off-the-rack" wedding dresses are typically sample gowns or surplus gowns that the salon has received from other bridal salons or wedding dress manufacturers.

The shop's entire inventory is online and brides must make an appointment to try them on in-store. Sunday's Bridal is definitely a required visit for any bride looking for a discounted designer wedding dress.

DFW residents have been flocking to this store since 1974 for its incredible selection of high-end designer handbags, shoes, jewelry, clothing, and accessories. While not a formal bridal salon, you never know what you may find at a place like Clotheshorse Anonymous. Scoring a stunning, floor-length white dress to use as your main wedding dress or for your reception is definitely a possibility.

5. Halo by Lovely and Re:BéBride | Online
Halo by Lovely and Re:BéBride represents online options for the bride looking for luxury for less. They are both the sister companies of bridal salons located in the Dallas area. Halo by Lovely is the online sister store to the Lovely bridal boutique. This online store boasts new, once worn, and sample dresses from the wedding dress designers available in the main store. Many of the dresses are from former Lovely brides who have consigned their once-worn dresses with Halo.
Re:BéBride is the online sister store to a&bé bridal shop. The online store operates under the same concept as Halo by Lovely, offering new and pre-owned wedding dresses from designers the flagship store carries. Brides are able to shop online and choose a wedding dress from the shop's inventory. Then, the wedding dress is shipped directly to their doorstep.
Shopping at these online sister stores is a great option for any bride who doesn't have the budget or doesn't want to spend the money on a new wedding dress at their respective flagship stores. Here's a bridal dress shopping hack for these online stores--visit one of the flagship stores, find a dress that you love, and then wait for it to appear in the online resale shop. You'll be amazed at the savings!
