Hit the Aliya Rose January SALE!!

One of the incredible bargains to be
found at Aliya Rose!
Time to pick up a bargain!  Friday 1st February, Noon till 10pm, we are having one of our famous Sale Events, with bridal gowns from £99, party and occasion dresses from £25, and accessories from £5.  Almost everything will have at least 50% off, in fact... can you afford to miss it?
Sale events at Aliya Rose can be super fun, but they can also be busy and a little hectic, so it can be a good idea to come prepared for what to expect.  Here's some advice and FAQs....

What items will be in the sale?
We will have bridal gowns,  most with at least 50% off, and some reduced right down to £99.  If you are looking to save money on your wedding without compromising on quality, this is definitely THE way to do it.
We will also have one-off bridesmaid/party/evening dresses from a miniscule £25.  These are well worth a look even if you already have everything you need for your wedding - they make fantastic party frocks, or guest dresses for friends' weddings, or something special to wear on your hen night!
AND we'll have a selection of beautiful accessories from just £5 - not just bridal either - some make great pressies or bridesmaid gifts.  Headbands, tiaras, necklaces, earrings, veils, hooped petticoats.... looking for something in particular?  You can contact us to find out whether we have it!
Will there be bridesmaid dresses in the sale?
Our bridesmaid samples will be on sale from only £25, but remember they are one-offs!  But whilst we only have one of each style, they are great for creating an ultra fashionable mix-and-match bridesmaid look, which is bang on trend!  To peek at a selection of the dresses on offer, visit the Aliya Rose Facebook page and have a look through our sale photos.  Don't be afraid to bring your girls along for some girly shopping anyway - remember that we will have party frocks and occasion dresses as well as super-sparkly accessories!
What sizes will you have?
We will have a variety of sizes in the sale, and the only way to know exactly what will be available in your size is to come in and see!  Bridal sizes can be different from high street sizes so if you want advice on which sizes to look at when you get there, we will be on hand to help you.  Please let us know if you have any special requirements and we'll do our best to advise.
What if I like a dress that someone else is trying on?
Dresses will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  If you like a dress someone else has on, make a note of it and as long as that person hasn't bought it first, you'll get to try it on too!  We try to make sure all the dresses stay on the rails unless they are being tried on, so you should get to see everything that is available.  We simply ask you not to fight over dresses (anyone remember that episode of 'Friends' - the one with the bridal sale?' :)   
We are quite organised with these events, and we will ask you to note down any dresses you would like to try rather than you having to grab them all off the rail and take them with you to the changing room. We also have a queuing system to make sure it's fair for everyone.  If you have ever heard of The Running of the Brides in Boston, you'll know the chaos we are trying to avoid!!
Will you hold a dress for me?
Unfortunately we can't do this.  The only way we can make a dress unavailable to anyone else is if you buy it!  It will definitely help if you come in a decisive frame of mind and ready to buy!
I've seen a dress on your website/facebook page that I love, how do I know if it's going to be in the sale?
If you have any questions about specific dresses, please feel free to get in touch with the team, either on the phone (01334 655303), by email info@aliyarose.co.uk, or via our facebook page.  It might help if you have your measurements to hand so we can check whether the size we have might be suitable.
What should I bring with me?
You might want to bring someone else for a second opinion if that's going to help you decide which dress to go for, and if you have a strapless bra that might be helpful to bring (but is not compulsory!)
But first and foremost, bring your wallet!  All our sale items are priced to go, and we expect them to do just that!  So don't miss out on the perfect dress at an incredible price.  Come prepared to buy on the night - and you could end up with a fab dress for a fab price (and more money in the budget to spend elsewhere... the honeymoon perhaps?)

Do I need an appointment?

In a word, No!  Don't worry, it isn't necessary to book an appointment.  We will see people on a first come, first served basis.  You can simply come along on the day.
Will I be put under pressure to buy?
Absolutely NOT!  We don't do pressure sales, even at sale events.  You'll have help from a member of staff while you are trying on, who might be able to suggest a different dress for you if the ones you picked haven't worked for you, and will be able to offer lots of advice.  However it is very important to bear in mind that the dress you are trying could sell to the next girl, and may not be available at all after the sale event is finished.
I'm not ready to buy now, I'm just looking for ideas.
If you're after 'the full experience' of dress shopping in a quiet, relaxed, private appointment with a cup of coffee , with the full range of current collection dresses available to you, then a sale event might not be for you.   There is no point in coming along on a sale night if you have no intention of buying yet, because the dresses you are trying on may well not be available AT ALL after the sale event.  However, if you think there's a chance you might find something, please feel free to come anyway!  Even if you don't find your dream wedding dress at a fraction of its original price, you might find a party dress or jewellery set that is just right for another occasion!
We can't wait to see you there!
