Buying a sample?

What kind of discount should you ask for when purchasing a sample dress?

    the salon desides what your discount should be - just ask them what they will sell their sample for..

    It also depends on the quality of the dress. If the sample is damaged or needs a repair you could try to negotiate an additional % off.

    It seems like, in general, 20% is kind of average. More if its damaged of course. I have seen as much as 50% for a discontinued model but I think that's rare. Like others said, the store usually has a set price.

    I bought a sample, it was already priced.

    Most of the time it will already be priced.  I bought my dress off the rack from David's, they didn't offer much of a discount at all, but they'll clean it and repair a small popped seam for free.

    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    I bought my dress straight off the rack from a local store and received 30% off.  They just needed to remove a small smudge of makeup on the neck... They were running a sale... so I don't know what price I would have gotten otherwise.
