FAQs

What is a sample bridal boutique?

We offer designer sample gowns to our brides at discounted and reasonable prices. Your experience at Savvy Bridal will be different than at a typical retail store. We have a large inventory with over 350 sample gowns. You are able to browse through our entire inventory and decide what gowns you would like to try on. We sell our gowns right off the rack so you may be able to leave with the gown of your dreams that day!


What is a sample?

Many manufacturers require their retailers to buy a minimum number of pieces to be used as showroom items or samples. These gowns come in a variety of sizes and may have been tried on several times or not at all depending on the store. These gowns have not been worn in a wedding or altered but they may have some small imperfections, surface dirt, or require small repairs from being tried on which is why we are able to offer them at 30 to 60% off their original retail prices.

When do I arrive?

Please arrive on time for your appointment. In most cases, we have appointments  prior and immediately following your appointment so should you arrive early or late, we may not be able to assist you.


If you are late to your bridal shopping appointment?

If you are running late to your 1 hour and 30 minute shopping appointment please call us to let us know 816.859.5966. If you are more than 20 minutes late we will mark you down as a no show and remove you from our scheduling system.


Do I need to confirm my appointment?
Savvy Bridal will text message you and send you an email to confirm your appointment 24 to 48 hours before your appointment


Do you have a layaway plan?

Once you found a dress for less you can choose to either pay the balance in full and take your gown home or you can choose to put a 50% deposit and receive 30 days to pay off your gown. This will ensure your gown is off the sale floor.


What about undergarments?

Your consultant will be popping in & out of the dressing room to help you into each gown… so wear something you are comfortable in. Light colored undergarments, strapless bra, and spanxs (if desired) are suggested.


Do you offer alterations?
While we do not offer alterations in house, but we have relationships with many seamstresses that are experienced in bridal gown alterations that we can refer you to. Please note, we are not in agreements with our recommended seamstresses, nor do we receive any payment from them for your business.

We ask that you do not bring food/drink into the boutique, unless previously discussed with our staff.  Our goal is to protect our gowns in the store.


Can I bring champagne?

Unfortunately we do not allow any beverages in the store.


Are children allow?

Due to the nature of our merchandise CHILDREN under the age of 8 years old are not allowed.  A bridal salon is not a fun place for children and they will very quickly get bored sitting in one spot. This will end up distracting you from your ultimate goal of finding your wedding gown. A bridal salon is also NOT a safe place for children due to loose pins, beads, breakable items, and other hazards. Crying children also distract other future brides on this important day.

Gowns, veils and accessories are non refundable, non- exchangeable. Purchased items have been sold in ‘AS IS CONDITION’. Any deposits made on a purchased item at Savvy Bridal are non refundable.
