How It Works

Adorn Nashville is now available online!

Shop our collection of discounted designer wedding dresses and accessories with a stylist standing by. We’re here to answer your frequently asked questions so you can say “yes” to a one-of-a-kind sample with confidence!

What is a sample wedding dress?

Sample wedding dresses are gowns that are available for immediate wear. They are a bridal shop’s stock dresses, also known as “off the rack” dresses. These discounted, designer dresses are ready to walk down the aisle at up to 70% off the original retail price. Perfect for a bride on a budget or with a time-crunch!

Who do I go to with questions about your online shop, including the fit, future alterations, and current condition of the dresses? 

Our dedicated stylists are a call, text or email away! We can walk you through the ins-and-outs of our dresses, including styling ideas, sizing and alterations recommendations. We’ll also be available for virtual consultations via FaceTime or Zoom before purchasing so you can see your dress in real-time and our stylists can walk you through the after care of purchasing a sample wedding dress. 

Can I return a sample wedding dress I purchased online if it’s not “the one”? 

In light of current events, we are changing our normal return policy for online sample dress purchases to accommodate our brides in need. All dresses purchased in our online sample shop may be returned within 14 days for store credit. The bride is responsible for paying shipping returns.  All accessories are final sale. IF YOU PURCHASE A SAMPLE WEDDING DRESS DURING OUR $500 FLASH SALE, THE DRESS IS NON RETURNABLE. ALL SALES FINAL.

What do I need to know about sizing before I purchase? 

Bridal sizing is not necessarily the same as street sizing; generally there’s a two size variance. So for example, if you’re normally a street size 6, you’ll likely be between a bridal 10 and 12. Most dresses can be safely altered down three sizes. There are exceptions for different designs and fabrics. If you have any concerns about sizing before purchasing, contact one of our stylists to walk you through it! 

What do I need to know about condition before I purchase?

All sample dresses and accessories are priced to sell based on condition and collection year. Items are sold “as is” and the marked price is final. Prices do not include tax, potential alterations, preservation, or dry cleaning. A stylist can be reached if you have any specific questions on aftercare or cost. We take tremendous care of our gowns and accessories to keep them in the best condition possible. Be sure to read the details on each item! We have noted any damages with potential alterations. 

When will I get my item? 

Please allow up to 7 days for processing. Our standard shipping is 3-5 business days.
