  • GO HERE!! The Sample Rack was amazing! So happy I found this shop through my mom's friends. Already recommending to every bride I know! Amazing service-you are the only bride in the store. Charlene was Awesome! Absolutely loved my one of a kind dress. Many, many compliments. Wish I could go back to buy another! My sister from North Carolina fell in love and insisted she wants to shop there when its time for her wedding.

  • I came here with a few close friends to look at dresses. I was a little late to my appointment, and they were still very accommodating and kind. They only meet with one party at a time, so I had a lot of help. I was unsure of what I really wanted, and they were still flexible and willing to work with me to help figure it out. They were honest with their feedback with the different dresses, and did not seem to be pushing me to buy something. I ended up walking out of the store with a dress that I would not have expected myself to buy, but I loved it. At the wedding, I received a lot of compliments. It was a great experience shopping here!

  • The ladies at The Sample Rack were absolutely AMAZING!!!! I provided them with a vision of what I envisioned my wedding dress looking like and they did the rest. Not only did I end up with an amazing dress for a great price they also provided suggestions for how I could do other things to make my dress stand out even more. Thanks so much.

  • I had such an incredible experience with everyone at the Sample Rack. I had a limited budget and very specific tastes and I was so tired of practically getting laughed out of boutiques. Even with a small budget I was always treated like a VIP and they were almost as excited about my wedding as I was! You never know what kind of dress you might find there but you'll always find great people.

  • I bought a dress off the rack here after trying on 30+ dresses at 5 other stores in the Philly area. Their dresses are all samples so you buy what you try on. But unlike other samples at other stores, the dresses are all in excellent shape- no tears, stains, etc. The styles they get are also really varied. I was looking for something a little nontraditional and different and they had many choices. They prices are also great. I paid $600 for my dress that retailed for over double that. The customer service is great and the store is small and personal. Highly recommend

  • Sample Rack was the best dress shop I went to! Carleen was honest, kind, and patient. She never pressured me to buy a dress and made me feel so confident when I did find the one!! Wonderful dresses at great prices too!

  • Amazing service and selection! I bought my beautiful gown from the Sample Rack and I continuously recommend the Sample Rack to other brides. Carlene and the other ladies were honest to me with feedback regarding how dresses looked on me and alternations. Thanks to the sample rack, I looked like a million bucks on my wedding day with a gown I loved from the day a tried it on to the day I walked down the aisle. Definitely make sure you've visited a few other stores first to know what style you are going for (or at least know what you don't want), that way the sample rack can be the last wedding gown shop you need to visit :)

  • Lindsay, Jim, and Carlene were the perfect team the day I bought my wonderful wedding dress at The Sample Rack. It was my 6th stop, which was helpful, because I went in knowing exactly what I was looking for. My friends and mom were all allowed to scout the racks and pull dresses along with me which I appreciated. They listened to me and were flexible and willing to add a veil or belt of my choice, and were quick to eliminate those I knew weren't it. Plus, this trio had enjoyable personalities, great senses of humor, and seemed to genuinely want to help me find the dress I wanted. They weren't pushy or overly selling anything, and didn't hesitate to criticize a dress for one reason or another. I could tell they knew what they were talking about. After I bought my dress (with a discount for working at a hospital and paying in cash), I called Carlene to find out more about my dress (the original price and style number, etc.). While they don't always get all information about their d... Read more

  • I bought my wedding dress here and had a great experience. I had a private session during which I was the only person in the store trying on dresses. The employees pay close attention and are very helpful. The prices are reasonable and getting to walk out with your dress that day is awesome. I am so happy I went there.

  • Went to pick out my dress on a Tuesday night back in December- they kept the store open for me and brought out tons of dresses which fit my style and price range. I followed their advice and had gone dress shopping at another store before hand so I knew what kind of dress/style I was looking for. My dress happened to be on display in their window and I instantly knew it was "the one" when I put it on. The ladies in this store are extremely knowledgable and professional and I so happy that I went to the sample rack.

  • The day i bought my dress was the BEST/HAPPIEST day of my life. The team at The Sample Rack works with you and listens to what your dream is and helps make it a reality. From the first phone call- Charlene explained that if i was out shopping and saw something i liked to text her a picture because she could help find it, loved that!! That being said- if you aren't sure of the style of dress you want then id suggest looking around before coming to The Sample Rack because they really have something for everyone. It will be helpful to get a feel of what style you want before your appointment. They only take appointments which is very helpful- Charlene was very helpful, i had family in from out of town and really helped me find a time that would fit everyone's schedules. I ended up purchasing the first dress i tried on that day. They also respect your budget 100% which is so important!! Thank you to the staff at The Sample Rack for everything :) will be sending pictures in March!!

  • The Sample Rack is a magical place where you can make all of your bridal dreams come true even if you are on a budget!! My dress was absolutely stunning and I never could have afforded it at retail. All night long people were complimenting me on my dress and no one could believe I was lucky enough to score it as a sample! Do your research before you go so you are ready to buy! Carlene is amazing and will find you the perfect dress for you even if it's totally different than what you thought you wanted when you first walked in! The shop is on the small side so this is not the place to bring your whole entourage but it's a beautiful intimate space to find your dream gown!
