Oh, hey there, Big Saver! What's that you say? You want to buy a wedding dress this weekend, and you don't want to spend a gazillion dollars? Then scurry to the Alt Brides website and book an appointment for their end of summer sample sale this weekend. In addition to being on the Rockyt list of solid bridal boutiques in the city, the shop also won San Francisco's magazine's best bridal shop award this year, so this is a pretty major sale.

Gowns and accessories at the sale will be priced up to 70 percent off. Gown options will include designs from Rebecca Schoneveld, Elizabeth Dye, Kite & Butterfly, Sally Eagle, Loulette, La Poesie, & For Love, and Donatelle Godart, and sale accessories includes options from Hushed Commotion, Naturae Design, Olivia the Wolf, Kerry Ann Stokes, Mignonne Handmade, and Anne Conway. You must have an appointment to shop the sale, and you can only try sample sale items during that appointment. The good news is that it won't be a panic-inducing bridal free-for-all.

The sale runs Saturday and Sunday, and sample sale appointment pickings are slim at this point. If you don't score an appointment, try reaching out to the shop to see if they can make something work for you. Good luck!
