Gown Information, Payment, Terms
Why are the prices so low? Are they new?
This is a promotional sale on discontinued and overstock gowns, and are sold as is. All gowns are new, and most of them still have designer tags.

Can we put a gown on hold?
Gowns will not be held in February prior to the show, nor during the show. The only exception is if you wish to pay by credit or debit card and the merchant terminal is not working. If this is the case and you are from out of town, there are several payment options and we will send your gown with free delivery. 
What are methods of payment and terms of the sale?
Cash, Visa, Mastercard and Debit will be accepted.
Applicable taxes will be added to the prices of the gowns. If the tag says $299, the final price will be $337.87.
Gowns must be paid in full, and are non-refundable.

What if the price tags come off?
We have a list of all the gowns and prices which will prevail in case the tags are mixed up.
Is this an annual event?
The Gala Expo is an annual event and is already booked for preceeding years. The number of gowns and the designers for the sale will vary from year to year.

Important Tips
What are some tips to be a successful gown shopper at the show?
1. You may want to wear a sports bra and biker shorts, or body suit, so you can try gowns on anywhere.
2. Leave the make-up at home, and be considerate handling the gowns.
3. Bring 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 ad some fun. Reception for cell phones may not work.
5. Arrive early for best selection, or later when it's calmer. The first brides and grads in line will have their ticket stamped to exchange for an information pack on the way out.
6. Be considerate giving up your dresses quickly so that other brides have a chance to try them.
7. Most gown sizes run small, so it's likely you'll need a size or two bigger than your usual clothes size. A perfect fit is rare... at these prices, the cost of alterations may be worth the price of the dress. Rose from Rose's Alterations will be floating around to answer some questions and give suggestions.
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 for our new 2009 line.
