Hayley Paige Best Of Trunkshow at anna bé!

Our Hayley Paige "Best Of" trunk show July 14-15 is Denver brides' best chance to score a discount on their gown as well as a few more perks for buying that weekend. Not only do our anna bé brides receive 10% off of their order, but many will also qualify for a free custom change which usually run $400-700 if purchased outside of the trunk show!  

And the best part? Our anna bé Hayley Paige collection is the largest in Colorado so you will be choosing from all the best styles! Here are three of our favorites:

'CELINE'

The Hayley Paige Celine gown is a stylist favorite, we all love how the delicate beading stands out against the clean, simple skirt with tons of movement. Celine is perfect for a bride who wants the signature Hayley Paige wow factor but doesn't want a huge ball gown!

'WINNIE'

Our Hayley Paige Winnie gown is the perfect combination of modern and vintage, and the sleeveless V-neckline is a fresh new look for the Hayley collection. We also love the ivory lace against Chardonnay tulle!  

'CHANDON'

anna bé stylists love Hayley Paige Chandon's airy, light ballet feel and the low back paired with a ball gown skirt. Three different color options for this gown mean there's a perfect color for any bride!  

The trunk show is by appointment only, so give us a call at 720-855-1111!

Best Wedding Gowns Under $2,000

While most wedding gowns at anna be are over $2000, we do have some great options for under $2000.  Here are a few of our favorites:

 

MADE WITH LOVE 'FRANKIE'

The Frankie gown is what put Made With Love bridal on the map, and anna bé was the first in the country to carry this amazing gown! The Frankie’s deep V in front and back, figure hugging shape and dramatic train make this a must-try when you visit anna bé.

DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE 'LAURENCE'

The Daughters of Simone 'Laurence' wedding dress is the epitome of Colorado wedding style. It is light, ethereal and flowy, and is perfect for a relaxed mountain wedding.  We love the off the shoulder detail and delicate lace!

WILLOWBY 'WREN'

The 'Wren' gown by Willowby is an anna bé fave. The lace is perfectly placed to flatter every body shape and we love that you can do the skirt either sheer or lined!  

MADE WITH LOVE 'INDIE'

The 'Indie' gown by Made With Love is an amazing option for a destination wedding or for any bride who wants something a little less traditional. The front slit is perfect for showing off your wedding shoes or walking along a sandy beach!

3 Things to Consider before Trying on Sample Gowns

Wedding dress sample sales can either be a dream come true or a bridal nightmare depending on a few important factors.  At anna bé we always want to ensure the sample sale is a good fit for the bride, and we have found the more information we can give our brides the more successful their sample appointment will be!  Here are a few questions you can ask yourself when deciding whether to attend a sample sale:

1. Are you comfortable wearing a gown that has been worn by other brides?

Sample gowns are not new gowns. They have likely been tried on many times by brides in the shop and are not in pristine condition. Sample gowns are discounted from the original retail price based on wear and tear, and many will be priced over 50% off. Another thing to consider is size and length. Most of our sample gowns will work for anyone size 2ish to 8ish depending on the designer. If you are over 5’9”, your selection will be smaller as not all of the gowns will be long enough for you.  

2. Are you ready to purchase your gown that day?

Sample sales work best for brides who have tried on wedding gowns prior to their appointment. That way, you will have a better sense of what you want and can make your decision without wondering what else is out there. There is only one of each sample dress, so once it is gone, it is gone forever.  We don’t hold any gowns, so if your mom/bff/cousin etc. can’t make it you will have to decide without them! If you know you cannot make your decision that day, it is best to schedule for when you are ready to purchase your gown. Keep in mind that we have sample gowns available year round, not just on sample sale days!

3. Is finding a deal on your wedding gown more important than having a traditional bridal experience?

Sample sale appointments are shortened to just 1 hour, and you are expected to make your decision within that time. You will likely be sharing your fitting room with another bride, and your guests will be asked to remain in the viewing area. You will have a stylist dedicated to you, however, you should not expect the typical bridal experience that anna be is known for. If you are a bride that loves a deal, we promise all of this will be worth it as you will have the opportunity to find your dream dress at a fraction of the original cost!

We hope this information is helpful! Our stylists are always on hand during business hours to answer any questions you have or help you schedule an appointment. And don't miss our Super Sample Sale with sister store a&bé bridal shop for our biggest sample sale of the season!
