  • I can't even begin to describe how wonderful of an experience I have had with The Sample Rack! From the first phone call, Carlene was absolutely wonderful. I felt confident that if the dress for me was there, she would find it.. and she did! It was the first one she pulled off the rack. Absolutely stunning, and they were able to work with my budget as well! I had gone to David's Bridal first, and the difference in quality alone is incredible, let alone the service and experience. They make you feel like a million bucks at The Sample Rack! David's kind of felt like a bridal gown factory or something. This place is warm and inviting, and I really can't say enough good things about it. Every dress I tried on was gorgeous, but I definitely had that "this is it!" moment, which I thought was kind of a tv thing. :) I am going to recommend The Sample Rack to EVERYONE.. I don't think I could have imagined a better experience!

  • I stopped in hoping I would leave with a dress that day but wasn't hopeful. They were great. My 4th dress was the one I left with. It was a sample obviously but was from my favorite designer and fit perfectly!!! I only added a bustle.

  • Got my wedding dress here. I appreciated being the only appointment at the time. Very nice & helpful! Only downside, the dressing room was just a curtain in the corner of the back room.

  • The Sample rack is the perfect place for budget-wary or "last-minute" brides to buy beautiful gowns from. From the start, Carlene was very helpful while making my appointment, giving me suggestions on how to prepare for it. When I got there, Lindsay was extremely welcoming and asked to see my pinterest to get an idea about dresses that I like. They found many gorgeous gowns for me to try on and during the process they gave me tips and advice about alterations. Carlene and Lindsay made my experience awesome and they were so honest and helpful the whole time. I left very happy and with the dress of my dreams :)

  • I don’t normally have the time or the energy to review anything, but definitely pay attention to other peoples reviews. However, I felt I had to write a review of my fabulous experience at the Sample Rack! I was dreading the whole process of choosing a wedding dress and put it off as long as possible. I was worried that since I am not a size 4, I didn’t think I would be able to find a dress that I looked beautiful in for my special day. Turns out that I was completely wrong!! Carlene, Lindsey and Jim were absolutely wonderful, and the process was not only easy, but, to my surprise, totally enjoyable. There were no other brides there during my appointment, and I really appreciated the personal attention that I received. All of the dresses that they picked out for me were incredibly beautiful and flattering, and it was a tough decision, but it turned out that the one that I ultimately loved the most and purchased, was the first one that they gave me to try on…(and it was not somet...

  • My dress buying experience was totally an amazing experience! Carlene and her assistant helped me go through over a dozen dresses in no time until I found my perfect match. They provided excellent advice and guidance when I was down to just two dresses. I left confident that i made the right choice. I highly recommend any bride who wants a great dress for a great value and top notch service!

  • If I could give more than five stars, I absolutely would. I would also recommend The Sample Rack to any and every bride. The staff are so welcoming and friendly and really enjoy what they do. I am getting married in five weeks and had already purchased a dress. After the second fitting, I realized it was not the one. Ensue panic. I called The Sample Rack, and Carlene went above and beyond to schedule me an appointment right away- even though they were completely booked. She was so patient and knowledgeable of the dresses and found me the perfect gown. She then called the seamstress and told her of my situation so that she could start alterations right away. The selection is amazing and the dresses are in perfect condition. I really wish I had discovered this shop in the first place! The prices are out of this world and if you pay cash, they don't charge tax. AND! hospital employees get a discount!!!!!

  • I got my wedding dress from The Sample Rack in March 2014. I had originally called for an appointment earlier in the month for a date when my mom was able to be in town and was told their were no available appointments, and then to my surprise that week, Carlene from The Sample Rack called me to inform me that another bride had cancelled and that the appointment was available to me if I still wanted one. Impressed with Carlene's memory of me, I took the appointment. Even still, I had an appointment at another salon earlier in the same day and almost cancelled my Sample Rack appointment after finding a dress I thought I loved. Needless to say, I still kept my appointment with The Sample Rack so my mother in law could attend an appointment with me too and was pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of gowns at the store. I found my dream dress there, the first dress they had me try on, despite thinking that I had fallen in love with the dress from the earlier store. The dre... Read more

  • I live in Kentucky and came to visit my future sister-in-law in Philadelphia for the weekend. We decided to make a few bridal appointments while I was visiting. Before arriving to my appointment, Carlene had asked a few basic questions to get us started. When we arrived, Carlene, Lindsey and Jim were more than ready for me. The first dress I tried was PERFECT! They knew exactly what I was looking for. We tried a few more, but I already knew I had found THE ONE. Since I was flying home, I asked about how to ship my dress. The Sample Rack offered to ship it for me! Jim even text me when he shipped it, and gave me the tracking number. The Sample Rack is absolutely amazing! They truly care about finding you the perfect dress.

  • Carlene from The Sample Rack is really on top of her job. She wants brides to look beautiful and to leave the store in their dream dress. My experience was unique though. I bought a dress at the shop, all swept up in a magical moment of feeling pretty and skinny and royal. Well, I knew I loved it but couldn't remember too much about it until I went to get it altered and realized it was not at all the right dress for my wedding. It was perfect for a elegant church, we were getting married on the beach!! Before the dress was altered I spoke to Carlene and told her my story. I actually debated just forgetting that dress and buying another. What?!?! Carlene went to bat for me with the owner and agreed to let me come back with the unaltered dress and try to find something that worked better for my wedding. I didn't ask for my money back and would never have expected it. But this act went so above and beyond. They DO NOT take returns or exchanges. But Carlene was determined to let me leave a...

  • I found my wedding gown at the Sample Rack. Initially I did not think I would be able to find anything but after trying on the gowns I liked and not liking them I tried on their suggestion and fell in love. They have a nice selection but the reason I did not give them 5 Stars on everything was because all of their gowns are pricier than I thought and they were not willing to negotiate the price.
