The Bubbly Bridal Expo Details

Join us for our 5th annual CLEAR THE RACKS SALE! We have over 500+ gowns that need to make their way out of our boutique! Join us to save BIG on designer gowns!
 
THE MAIN DETAILS: All normal designer gowns will be UNDER $1,500 (Mostly under $1,000) and all worth so MUCH more in retail value than their sale prices! We are even throwing in some HIGH END designer gowns like Hayley Paige, Alvina Valenta, Enzoani, Watters and other high end retailers at AMAZING deals (these gowns may be over the $1,500 price point… but generally these gowns retail between $2,000 – $4,500 – TOTALLY worth the look!) SELECT gowns will even be $500 or UNDER!! You won’t want to miss this event!
 
Made – To – Order Gowns: We are also throwing in a Maggie Sottero Trunk Show, so if you don’t find something you love in our off-the-rack sale, you can certainly check out our trunk show rack of ORDERED gowns and receive 10% off their retail value (these gowns will take 2 – 7 months to arrive, so please be sure to check availability for your date!
 
In addition to our Clear the Rack Sale, we will be hosting select wedding vendors to help fulfill other wedding planning needs while you wait for your shopping timeframe! Think of this section as a MINI-BRIDAL SHOW! EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE YOUR GOWN, JOIN US FOR THE VENDORS! This is a great way to meet high quality, industry leading vendors all HAND-SELECTED by the Champagne Taste Bridal Team! Our owner is a former Bridal Show planner and Wedding Catering/Sales Manager. With tons of wedding day knowledge she’d love to share with you! Join us! Ask planning questions! Our team wants to help!
 
We will also be featuring a mini pop up boutique hosted by our sister boutique IBH Creations & Boutique with gifts for the bridesmaids and custom laser engraved product offerings! 🙂
 
DOOR PRIZES WILL BE GIVEN THROUGHOUT THE SHOW!!
REGISTRATION IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, BUT NOT REQUIRED.
 
***REGISTER HERE (MUST BE 18+) $8 PER PERSON IN ADVANCE (caps at $48), $15 AT THE DOOR—(ALL REGISTRATIONS FEES WILL BE APPLIED TO THE PURCHASE OF A GOWN at the event. An appointment after is an option to see REGULAR PRICED inventory — SALE ITEMS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AFTER THE SHOW) – Event registration fees are NON_REFUNDABLE (even if you don’t find a gown)
We will have light refreshments, restaurant recommendations for lunch or dinner and a champagne bar! *Consumption of catered food & alcoholic beverages are at the liability of the attendee.*
 
 
**BOOK YOUR SHOPPING TIMEFRAME IN ADVANCE **
 
This will work the way our mini sample sales work, which is different than in years past. THERE WILL NO NO ONE-ON-ONE APPOINTMENTS THIS YEAR! This will operate as a true sample sale, but with a little more structure. You will register for a ONE HOUR shopping timeframe! We will have 5 dressing rooms open for trying on that will be shared between same shopping timeframe brides. 3 gowns can go into the dressing room at a time to allow for even distribution. We will have consultants on the floor to assist, but no one will be directly assigned to you! In the past we have learned that family / friends often want to help versus the consultant. This way our team can better assist with questions, sizing, helping you find a gown and be more available to everyone overall!
 
—Fitting rooms are not flexible and you will forfeit your shopping timeframe if you do not arrive at your scheduled time. —
 
DOORS WILL NOT OPEN EARLY, SO PLEASE DRESS ACCORDINGLY OR ARRIVE AT 1PM SHARP FOR OPEN DOORS — 1pm shoppers will get to enter FIRST regardless of placement in line!

Terms and Conditions

The event will be held at North Beach Firehouse. Parking is free for all. There is limited parking so please arrive timely, but please be aware doors WILL NOT open early. We will be allowing you to shop during your designated shopping timeframe only. 

Your registration will guarantee ATTENDANCE to the show and is NOT a one-on-one appointment. Consultants will be available, but not necessarily assigned to you. Our consultants will only allow you to try on gowns that can actually arrive in time for your wedding, be altered and are in the scope of the desired gown. We DO NOT allow gowns to be tried when it comes to improper sizing as this can cause damage to the gowns and warrant you to pay for a gown you don’t love. The gown must be within an appropriate alteration range or able to be ordered if it is too small or too large. 

Remember bridal sizing can run 1 -4 sizes up, so DO NOT look at gowns that are your current jean size. A Bridal Profile is filled out when registering for your shopping timeframe. Please fill this out so our consultants can best assist you. This helps us stay on time, as we must be mindful of the schedule for the day. 

Gowns will have tags on them and if there are any questions, please ask a consultant. Ideally we are looking to keep most gowns under $1,200 each plus Maryland State Taxes. There will be over 500 gowns to choose from but a limited supply of lesser expensive gowns ($500). All gowns will be well under their retail value, so regardless of price point they are all a great deal.

Please arrive on time to ensure you have the availability to look at the gowns. If you do not find a gown, you are more than welcome to make an appointment at Champagne Taste Bridal to choose from gowns in our boutique at NON-SAMPLE SALE pricing (still a good deal) and new arrivals. Your admission fees will apply to a gown purchase that SAME DAY. Otherwise, your admission fee is NON-REFUNDABLE, even if you do not show up for your appointment the fee will be retained as a show attendance fee. Vendors will be present for wedding planning needs, light refreshments and door prize opportunities! This operates alongside a mini bridal show for entertainment purposes between shopping timeframes. 

Once you have booked your appointment, there is NO REFUND for non-attendance cancellations. We can instead offer you credit to our sister boutique, IBH Creations & Boutique’s, website to be used by the end of the year, as long as you have cancelled your event registration within 7 days of the event. If you cancel inside of the 7 days prior to the event or just don’t show up, your registration fee will be forfeited.  

  • PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF GUEST COUNT — We ask there there be no more than 6 guests + the bride and refrain from children IF POSSIBLE as the aisles can be tight — this is a sample sale, so it can be chaotic and too many opinions can also be EXTREMELY overwhelming for our brides in this type of sale environment. We do suggest to refrain from bringing children to this event specifically because the the gown aisles can get tight and you will be chatting with vendors and sipping champagne. However, children are permitted if needed of course! 
  • If you plan to try on gowns, please refrain from recently being spray-tanned, wearing makeup that easily rubs off or any lipstick colors. These can damage gowns and cause you to have a purchase a gown you don’t absolutely love!
  • All vendors participating and any that provide gift bag inclusions will receive a list of the attendees and may use these for marketing purposes.
  • Photographs may be taken at the event and by registering yourself and your guests, you permit Champagne Taste Bridal, LLC & Affiliates to use any photographs, without further approval, for marketing purposes through social media and print advertising.
  • All gown sales are FINAL, non-refundable, not exchangeable, and not returnable. Gowns are all sold ‘AS IS’. Alteration questions should be asked at the time of the show and will be priced independently by an independent seamstress. Champagne Taste Bridal can offer seamstress suggestions but holds no liability to their work.
  • Attendance at this event is done at the attendee’s own risk. It is the responsibility of the attendee to practice safe distancing, proper mask procedures, and hand hygiene. Champagne Taste Bridal, LLC Owner, Staff & Affiliates will be doing their best to ensure a sanitized and safe experience. 

Champagne Taste Bridal, LLC reserves the right to ask any attendee to leave the premises if they are not following proper COVID procedures, being unkind to the sales staff, vendors, other bridal expo participates or participating in any form of horseplay (pushing, shoving, foul language and other activities that may be deemed harmful or unnecessary).
