On the Tenth Day of Christmas...

...September's Bride has for you...

Ten...ten...ten...and more tens
Nine Tuxes for the Gents
Eight Gowns for Looking
Seven Convenient Hours
Six Weeks for Cleaning
Five Lines to Choose From!
Four Gorgeous Maid's Gowns
Three Flower Girl Dresses
Two Dedicated Consultants
and the Perfect Gown for your Bridal Debut!

I'm talking about "Size Ten"; which is nice if you are one, but more difficult if you're larger or smaller.

What am I talking about?

Most sample gowns in our store are size 10. I have ordered a larger variety of sizes for Spring 2008, but brides often wonder why everything is the same size at a bridal store.

The owners of a bridal salon have to purchase each gown that is brought in as a sample; they are not provided free by the designers. So, we try to get the best use of our investment by purchasing sizes that are the most flexible. We find that 50% percent of brides are within a size or two of a sample size 10, so that is often where the investment is put.

If you are frustrated because you are a big or little girl, please ask if we can get a sample in your size. Most designers have loaner programs and, at September's Bride, we will do all we can to find something in your size to try. We want you to be delighted with your shopping experience and with your choice of gown!

Merry Christmas!

AMEN! I am bigger than a size 10 and HATED not being able to see what it would actually look like on me!
