If you're looking for the best bridal shops in Galveston or League City, TX, look no further than Luxe Redux Bridal! We're just a short drive away in Pearland, TX, so, allow us to introduce ourselves! We're a designer sample bridal boutique, and you may be wondering, 'what's a designer sample'?
A sample wedding dress is one that you would try on at a traditional, special order bridal boutique, before ordering your desired size, color, customizations, etc. Our dreamy boutique holds a curated selection of designer sample gowns that are consigned with us from the top bridal boutiques around the country. Stunning gowns from designers like Watters, Made with Love, Jenny Yoo, Maggie Sottero + many, many more are just a click away, babe!
And let’s break down the term consignment, shall we? Consignment sometimes gets a dirty connotation or someone feels the item is “used”. At Luxe Redux, gowns on consignment simply means we obtained the gown from other designer bridal retailers across the country. So when the dress sells, we send a portion of the sales price to them. In reality, most of the gowns were tried on a handful of times as samples in a fancy, special order boutique. That’s it! We never approve gowns that have been altered and worn all day at a wedding. We are so particular about what we accept!
We like to give you the visual of shoes you try on at a really nice department store. Many, many feet have tried on those shoes before they are purchased. Do you consider them used? We didn’t think so! It’s no different with the sample wedding dresses at Luxe Redux Bridal!
Read on to learn more about why you'd want to choose a sample wedding dress + what makes our Pearland, TX bridal shop the best experience for finding yours!
A top reason why you'd want to shop consigned designer gowns is to save money! Let's be real, weddings can be expensive! When you find a consigned sample dress that you love, you're saving hundreds [+ sometimes thousands!] of dollars to wear one of your favorite designers down the aisle!
One of the best parts of purchasing a sample wedding gown is that you get to take your dream dress home from our Houston boutique the same day you say YES, perfect for accommodating a shorter timeline. No wait time here, babe. Armed with tips for storage and care from our expert stylists, we'll send you with your gown, any bridal accessories and our recommended seamstresses in Texas! [SPOILER: Our selection of bridal accessories is pretty incredible! Think Untamed Petals, Twigs + Honey, Sara Gabriel, Paris by Debra Moreland, and more!] We know with the recent news of David's Bridal, many brides are feeling uncertain and worried about their gowns. We're confident our off-the-rack options will provide peace of mind to those in a pinch!
As we touched on in our blog post about sustainable wedding dress shopping, when you say yes to a consigned bridal gown, you're purchasing a gown that has already been made, instead of allowing a completely new garment to be put into production! You can rest assured knowing you [+ your wedding] have done your part as a sustainable bride!
Looking for a style that's as unique as you are? You're in luck! Oftentimes, our samples are loved styles from top designers that are now discontinued + even more special! Shopping with a consignment [or sample] bridal boutique gives you the opportunity to find unique, one-of-a-kind wedding dresses that you may not be able to find anywhere else! Along with these one-of-a-kind gems, you'll also find current styles from a variety of designers that you can get at a fraction of the retail price!
Now, we know that buying a sample wedding gown isn't for everyone, which is why we have a collection of brand new private label gowns in each of our bridal boutiques - including Houston!
Along with this list of amazing reasons, Luxe Redux Bridal gives our brides even more reasons to purchase a sample gown with our selection of plus size wedding dresses. While the majority of our samples are bridal sizes 10, 12, + 14, we've made it our passion project to carry gowns from sizes 0 - 30, so you can rest assured that we'll have plenty of stunning designer options already in mind when you walk through the doors for your appointment!
Our Houston bridal shop experience is truly a dream. When you walk in, you're greeted by an extravagant balloon arch, beautiful decor + dreamy dresses hung up in a row! You'll have an appointment with one of our expert stylists - who you'll want to be besties with by the end! Our stylists, Mariah, Sloane, Ella + Melissa, have garnered lots of love from their brides since January! We'll let the reviews speak for themselves:
"Cannot say enough amazing things about this boutique and their staff!! My initial call with Mariah was so helpful, and she answered all my questions and then some! It's nerve-racking starting this journey, and she made it all feel so simple! Then when I booked my appointment, I was working with their bridal stylist Sloane and OH MY GOODNESS, is she a gem! So fun and easy, and really really listened to what I was saying. She even had me thinking a little outside of the box than what I originally thought I wanted, and that's how we found THE ONE. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Also, walking out the door with my dream dress in hand is such a bonus! Highly highly recommend!" - Chloe T.
"Even before my appointment, I felt so at home here! The stylists keep in contact from the day you book your appointment until the day of to make sure they have an idea of what you're looking for, budget, wedding vibe, and all the other important details. Melissa was so accommodating, taking in my feedback on every dress and bringing me better and better ones to try on. Even when I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, the ladies seemed to pick up on just what I needed and pulled the perfect dress for me. My bridesmaids, mom, and I loved our experience here!" - Nicolette M.
"I had such an amazing experience at Luxe Redux!! Sloane had pulled amazing dresses that were such a perfect fit for what I was looking for, and the very first one I tried with her ended up being the one I picked. 10/10, would highly recommend!!" - Kelly D.
"I worked with Ella and she was AMAZING! She made me feel welcomed in the boutique and made my experience exciting. With just a couple of questions the 1st 2 dresses were on point! (I ended up getting the 2nd dress). If you're able to dress shop here you definitely should!" - Andrea P.
Finally, we take great pride in our inventory + personally select each dress that finds a home in one of our boutiques. If a gown arrives and doesn't meet our standards, we send it back to its original home. Now real talk; we do accept samples that may need a little extra love. This may include a loose button or broken zipper, but we're confident that a skilled seamstress can fix these imperfections. And guess what? These tiny flaws mean big discounts!
