☐ Send list of samples you're interested in consigning to our Managing Director, Ashley, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
☐ If you're planning to purge any samples during your own sample sale, please wait to send us your list until after the event. This eliminates any back and forth regarding what is available, and streamlines communication between our team and yours.
☐ Check for samples that need repairs or cleaning.
☐ A little bit of effort goes a long way! We encourage you to clean or repair dirty/damaged samples, as this will greatly impact your return on investment. Gowns that need a little more love tend to stay on our racks longer + require a larger discount than those coming to us in pristine condition. If you have samples you're unsure of due to condition, feel free to send us photos prior to boxing up!
☐ Receive finalized list + designated locations from Ashley via email.
☐ You must provide accurate retail pricing - not the markup you may warrant in your territory. Retail pricing must reflect any additional or missing features of the sample. E.g. pricing with / without overskirt or detachable belt.
☐ To receive copies of submitted forms, include your email address in the appropriate field. File away these forms to accurately track consigned inventory.
☐ Remove gowns being sent to Luxe Redux from any other gown listing platforms.
☐ Ship gowns + send tracking information to email@example.com. Please bag samples in cloth or plastic garmet bags + box up with care, including a cardboard insert to protect fabric.
If Luxe Redux receives any samples we do not feel confident we can sell due to condition, our Inventory Specialist, Anna, will reach out via email to provide photos + request their removal.
If Luxe Redux receives any samples that are still sellable but will require a greater initial discount than addressed in the Consignment Agreement, Anna will reach out via email regarding new pricing + photos. At that time, if you'd prefer to receive the gown back, we will ship your sample back to you using the shipping account information provided in your Consignment Agreement.
Tracking Consigned Gowns
☐ As inventory sells, a letter is mailed out at the end of each month listing items that sold the previous month. (For example, July sales are totaled + paid out at the end of August!) If no items are sold, a letter will not be mailed. Attached to the letter will be a stub that lists the payout amount for each item sold.
☐ Gowns on consignment are still owned by the consigning boutique; it is the owner's responsibility to keep track of consigned inventory.
☐ To track consigned gowns, use the form receipts from the Gown Birth Certificate.
☐ To track sold gowns, use the payout letters + stubs.
☐ Any gowns we need to remove from our inventory will be communicated via email.
☐ Per the Consignment Agreement, communication regarding current + sold inventory will be limited to the above methods.
☐ Consigned items may not be returned to owner during initial 12-month period. Brides hopeful to purchase or try on items may do so via our online platform.
☐ Any item with us over 12 months can be returned to the owner upon the owner's request. Items that remain with us over 12 months will be subject to either steeper discounts or removal. Owner will be notified of removal via email.
We are always seeking ways to make consignment as streamlined as possible! We are aware that BridalLive is a very popular software that many of our consigning partners use.

Using a code like CONS for consigned or LUXE for consigned with Luxe) and tacking that on to whatever else you have in the field makes searching for consigned pieces convenient. Just be sure to use % to enable wildcard search!

☐Seaching the Vendor Item Name field with "%LUXE" will pull up this result
Tracking gowns sold at Luxe Redux Bridal
