This is truly the source to find your dream wedding dress! I live in Chicago and went to several stores to try on wedding dresses, attempting to stick to a budget of $2,000 or less, including alterations. The last local bridal store I went to had the dress I ended up ultimately buying from YourDreamDress.com. So I was able to try on the exact dress at that bridal store, but the sample dress at that store was more double the price I ended up purchasing it for on YourDreamDress.com and in obviously used condition, with many holes and snags in the tulle and lace. I did love the dress but was afraid that the sample was beyond repair. My friend who came with me to the bridal store suggested I think about it and/or look for a similar dress online. We left and that night I did a google search for the dress brand and style and found YourDreamDress.com and the exact dress that I had tried on and fell in love with! The amazing thing is that the dress on the site was in near perfect condition, and I called and spoke to Kimberly, who spent a lot of time on the phone explaining to me how they buy sample dresses that are in excellent condition and once they acquire them they are stored very carefully and not disturbed or tried on anymore. She went into great detail about the one or two very minor flaws in the dress that I wanted which once I received were not even noticeable to me or to the bridal alterations place I am using. She also helped to make sure the dress would work with my size and height. For reference I am 5’7″ and a size 2/4, mainly the top of the dress needs to be taken in. When I brought my dress into the alterations place they couldn’t believe that my dress was a sample and commented on how it was so clean and in absolutely amazing condition. They said they would probably not need to get it professionally cleaned again. Kimberly had explained to me that the dress was professionally cleaned prior to sending. I was able to receive a discount with a promo code, but was also exempt from paying sales tax, which allowed me to get a $5,000 dress for ~$800! Additionally, they do give you a 72 hour return window in case the dress you order does not work out for some reason. I would highly recommend getting your wedding dress here, for the excellent customer service, quality and value. I cannot thank YourDreamDress.com and Kimberly enough to help make me so beautiful on my wedding day! I want to let other brides-to-be in on this secret. I cannot wait to wear my gorgeous, classic and flawless dress on my wedding day!!! And now I have money left over to spend on other accessories.

About Austin Scarlett
Austin Scarlett has a modern take on classic Parisian style redefines romance. His designs are all at once grand while still maintaining the delicate and romantic feel many brides desire. His gowns are truly a blend of what mother’s dream of for their daughters and of what daughters dream of for themselves.
Scarlett grew up in Cottage Grove, Oregon, where even as a child, he was designing. This love of design drove him to move to New York as a teenager to pursue his passion for fashion. He studied at the Art Students League of New York and The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. All of his hard work and determination paid off when in 2005, he won the first season of Bravo’s Project Runway. His very first creation for the show, a gown created exclusively of cornhusks, is still considered “the single most iconic design for the history of the series” by Tim Gunn and the three judges of the show. After winning, Austin went on to become the youngest-ever Creative Director of couture wedding and eveningwear in 2006 for the design-house Amsale’s luxury collection, Kenneth Pool. He was with them until 2009, when he began filming On the Road with Austin and Santino for the Lifetime network.
By the fall of 2012, Scarlett was ready to launch his first complete gown collection under his own label. He debuted his new line at Neiman Marcus Flagship in Dallas, Texas and on the runways of New York’s Park Avenue Armory. In addition to Neiman Marcus, his designs are found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Kleinfeld and many other luxury retailers throughout the world.
Austin believes “A wedding dress is the expression of a woman’s unique beauty at her most treasured moment.” This belief is ever-apparent in art of couture that is an Austin Scarlett design.
