Bargain Finds


Brilliant Bridal

By Suzanne O'Connor

Brilliant Bridal is a new off price retailer of designer Bridal Gowns specializing in selling designer overstock and closeout wedding gowns “off-the-rack” direct to the public at 25%-70% below original retail.

Independently owned and operated with four bridal boutiques across Arizona, Southern California and Denver, their wedding dresses are sold off-the-rack with no ordering and no long waiting period, so you can take your dress home the same day you find it.

On the day I visited I found gowns by Maggie Sottero, James Clofford Collection,  Venus, Jasmine Collection, Pallas Athena,  San Ptarick, La Sposa,  Mon Cherie and William Wu.  But since they liquidate from dozens of manufacturers, this list can change dramatically. Upcoming deliveries include dresses by Maggie Sottero, Allure, Enzoani, Jasmine, Alfred Angelo, David Tutera, Sophia Tolli, Justin Alexander, Mori Lee, Tony Bowls, Christina Wu.

Savings averaged 25%-40% off on the day I was there. Some hot deals included a House of Wu bridal gown that originally retailed at $1099, was here for $849.  A San Patrick gown was $1399 instead of $2007.  A Maggie Sottero Layered lace gown was $1359 instead of $1945. A House of Wu lace overlay gown was $619 instead of $899 and a gorgeous lace and stain gown with a train that was originally $3000 was $1999 here.  A James Clifford Collection Mermaid style gown was $2499 instead of $4000. A Jasmine collection gown was $779 instead of $1100 and a Jacquliene ruched and ruffled gown was $869 instead of $1249.

This is a full service salon with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There are several women available to help you here as well as alterations and storage service available.  Sizing runs size 4- 28 with at least a dozen gowns in each size to choose from.

Brilliant Bridal is a great place to hunt for that perfect gown at a price that won’t break the bank. Can I hear an amen?
