SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- You don't have to break the bank to get the wedding dress of your dreams, according to Linda Morado, proprietress of Le Dress Boutique, a Sandy Springs business that sells and consigns luxury dresses at substantial discounts. The company recently celebrated its five-year anniversary with a move from Buckhead into a larger retail space in Sandy Springs.
Le Dress Boutique's inventory includes fine wedding and evening gowns; party, prom and Mother-of-the-Bride dresses; and vintage jewelry. Discounts range from 35-80 percent off list price.
Approximately 95 percent of the wedding gowns are new or samples consigned to the store by overstocked specialty boutiques from around the country. On the special occasion side of the business, half of the inventory is new, and half is "once-loved."
