  1. Off-the-Rack: First things first let's talk about the hidden gems waiting to be discovered at off-the-rack stores, just like NKIN. Racks upon racks of stunning dresses in incredible condition at an even more incredible price. At stores like ours, most dresses are old sample dresses, so they've never even left a boutique floor. So, grab your entourage and start checking out the racks!

  2. Sample Sales: Ah, the thrill of the chase! Sample sales are like the Olympics of bridal shopping. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements from your favorite bridal boutiques because these events are often hard to snag an appointment at. 

  3. Vintage Vibes: Who says your dream dress has to be fresh off the runway? Start looking at your favorite thrift shops, consignment stores, or even raid Grandma's closet. You'll be shocked at how incredible these vintage dresses can be - and hey, trends always come back around! 

  4. Trunk Shows: Last but certainly not least, don't underestimate the power of trunk shows and pop-up shops! These events are like candy stores for brides, offering every kind of dress a bride may want. Plus, you'll get the chance to meet unique dresses from talented designers, snag exclusive deals, and meet other brides just like you!
