IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO THE GALA EXPO GOWN SALE.
Expo begins at
10am and the gown sale starts at noon (11am for VIPs). There will be no
need to line up for the gown sale! We will be giving away bracelets
for the gown sale right at the entrance at the time of arrival
at the Gala Expo on a first-come first-serve basis. Basically the
first people to arrive will make up the second wave into the bridal gown sale
after VIPs. We will be staggering the waves across the day, and the emcee
will announce when we are ready for the next group to be ushered in.
This is to allow time for gowns to be put back on the racks, to afford a
more favourable shopping experience for everyone, and to enable everyone
to enjoy all that Gala Expo has to offer and the wonderful vendors and
entertainment, and not have to be waiting in a line! There will be lots
of mirrors and plenty of gowns for everyone, with over a thousand from
which to choose!

1. We recommend wearing leggings and a tube top/tank top/sports bra
so you can try gowns on anywhere.
2. Please leave the make-up at
home (to avoid getting any on the dresses),
Please be considerate handling the gowns. Donít put/leave the dresses on
the floor, or take more than 3 or 4 at a time. Please put the gowns that
you have tried on and do not wish to purchase back on the hanger. Please
be considerate of the gowns, and of the other brides! If we see people
abusing the gowns, they will be kindly asked to exit the gown sale.
3. We recommend bringing helpers who have similar taste in style, to
hold your belongings, and help you try on gowns.
4. It may sound
ridiculous, but it may be helpful for you and your helpers to wear
matching colors or hats. It'll be easier to find each other in crowds
and it may add some fun. Reception for cell phones may not work.
Arrive early to be in the first wave in the gown sale for best
selection, or later when it's calmer.
6. Be considerate giving up
the gowns you are finished with quickly so that other brides have a
chance to try them.
7. Most gown sizes run small, so it's certain
you'll need a size or two bigger than your usual clothes size. A perfect
fit is rare... We will have several local seamstresses on site for
advice on alterations.
8. Be open minded. The dress of your dreams
may not be the style you had in mind since you were a little girl...
you'll never know until you try it on!
9. Prom grads: we will check
our school sales list to avoid duplication of a gown worn to the same
prom. Please keep in mind we don't have control over sold gowns from
other stores. Although, if it is a discontinued gown, you're even more
likely to have a unique gown!
10. Most importantly... Have Fun!! If
you find a dress, great! If not, come visit us at ACS Formals for our
time and interest is very much appreciated.
Sincerely, ACS Formals'
staff and constituants.
