On May 7th, Kleinfeld will kick off a bridal warehouse sale, where sample gowns will start at just $499. Sizes 6 through 28 will be available, and it's all on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors open at 3pm, but Gilt City is currently shilling out a few packages that could get you in a few hours early.
For the Gold Pass ($150), you get access to the sale at 12:30pm, a one-on-one consultation, an additional 30% off already marked down sample gowns (excluding those priced at $499), and $50 to spend on accessories samples. The $250 Platinum Pass is already sold out, but the only difference is you'd be allowed in at 10:30am. There's also an offer for a $2,000 in-store credit, which would set you back $1,000.
To help you decide if any of that is worth it, Kleinfeld posted a slideshow of gowns available. Note that there appear to be a lot from Alita Graham, and a good amount from Dennis Basso. Other designers will include Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera, Claire Pettibone, Douglas Hannant, Isaac Mizrahi, Lanvin, Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra and more.
