Summer Starter Sample Sale

Don't miss the biggest savings Ellie's Bridal to offer! This event will feature over 200 gowns, originally priced $890-$5000, marked down to $199-$2499. With so many great gowns and the fabulous savings, it's no wonder that our Sample Sales have gained the reputation of being among the best in the DC area. This is a walk-in event so no appointment is necessary!


Walk in without an appointment and shop at your leisure. You may wait for a fitting room or come prepared with bras and spanx to change in our open changing areas without the wait. Our dedicated bridal stylists will be more than happy to assist you when needed and answer any of your questions.


Make an appointment for an individual consultation with one of our bridal stylists and reservation of a private fitting room, limited to one hour. Only a few appointments slots will be offered, as this is primarily a walk-in event, so reserve your spot early! 


“[Ellie’s Bridal Boutique] had their sample sale this past weekend. They said all of their appointments were booked but accepted walk-in’s. So Sunday I went and Amy was able to help me the entire time. She was very friendly and helpful. I found a beautiful Ella Rosa gown, originally $1,100 on sale for $600... So a definite steal!”

“Ellie’s is a cute little bridal boutique on N. Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria. I had the privilege of making an appointment during their sample sale and they had so many beautiful gowns that are typically in the $1K range for $500 and under... If you do choose Ellie’s for your bridal/ bridesmaid needs and you’re on a budget, try to go during a sample sale or trunk show...”

“Working with my bridal consultant [at Ellie’s] was wonderful and I highly recommend making an appointment during one of their sample sales. I purchased a sample dress off-the-rack, which helped me come in way under my price point.”

— Private User (WeddingWire)

“Our budget was pretty low. Like...half the price of half the cost of their lowest priced gowns. But-being the person I am, I really wanted the experience... [then] SIncerity 3808 happened... Needless to say, I of course loved it... My team member told me about the fall dress sale Ellie’s was having... and with a few angels fro up above I was able to pick up the dress! I am so excited to be wearing this instead of something else on my big day. You all are truly amazing, and have made this Seattle girl very, very happy.”
