The wedding was lovely!

Thank you for taking good care of me

"Your help in finding the gown was amazing and it was wonderful to wear something so beautiful. Sara (The Tailor) added the straps with the embellishments. And a Philadelphia photographer Amanda Capasso Photography took the photos. The wedding was lovely and practically perfect."

Wedding gown Brittany review Rebecca review

The dress was absolutely perfect!

"After trying on a few suggestions from you, we went with the lace A-line that was in the window. This was Veteran's Day and the wedding was July 2. As you suggested, Nilah did the alterations, and the dress was absolutely perfect, as you will see on the attached photos. Once again, thank you for helping with this vital component of the day."

I had such a wonderful experience at my appointment and it really didn't stop there! I contacted the store a few weeks later about accessories and they were SO helpful even though I live out of town. I'm strongly recommending this shop to my friends. Thank you all!!!


- Lauren Judy

From the first moment I stepped into your store, you made my dress search into a one of a kind, wonderful experience. I had been looking for a wedding dress for quite some time and had never received such superb customer service nor had been made so entirely welcome. The St. Pucchi dress that you picked out for me is an absolute dream and your recommendations of Sara-The Tailory made my wedding dress search complete. She did a beautiful job! I entered your store alone and left with a magnificent dress, an unforgettable experience and a new best friend (a fellow bride) that I met in the dress search much better can it get?

Awesome customer service!! These ladies were amazing. From start to finish. I felt the difference of superior service. They only schedule one appointment at a time so the focus is really on finding YOUR perfect dress.

Thank you so much for helping me find my dream wedding dress! I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better dress! It was absolutely perfect for our special day!

As the mother of the bride I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sample Rack. My daughter lives out of the country and was in the United States for one week. Within that time she hoped to buy her wedding dress. From the moment we walked in to Sample Rack we felt welcomed and hopeful. In particular, Rachel was amazing in helping us find the perfect dress! She was great at making suggestions, yet never pushy. We truly felt that her only motivation was to find the "perfect" dress whether it’s be at the Sample Rack or not. We did buy the dress at Sample Rack and were so happy with the purchase. I would recommend this store and in particular Rachel, for anyone looking for a stress free, wonderful, exciting experience. We look forward to sending you pictures after the wedding. Thanks again for all your help.

A newly wed couple

My experience with The Sample Rack was fantastic. I was 2 weeks from my wedding and scrambling to find a dress (my original gown was being handmade by my aunt who passed suddenly) Carlene, Jim and Rachael were amazing. They were sensitive to my situation and eager to help me find my perfect gown even if I didn't find it at their location (They actually had jusssst sold the Vera Wang I fell in love with at another location). Their service, expertise and not to mention inventory is all superb. The veil I purchased pulled together my whole look and I can't recommend them enough for their efforts and kindness. I am absolutely referring them to my 2 girlfriends who are planning 2018 weddings.

Thank you again guys!


- Sharon McGarvey

As the father of the bride I cannot say enough about how great it was to be part of buying my daughter's wedding dress. Rachel was great, made me feel welcome and gave great advice. The best part? There was another store's dress in the final 2 and they made it easy to make the decision as they said "All we want is a beautiful bride." Of course we then bought the dress from the Sample Rack and our daughter looks GORGEOUS!


- Scott Adler

It's been a few years now, but I will never forget my experience here. Carlene was amazing. I saw a dress in the window, hoped I could fit it, I did and they made me feel like a princess once I put it on. It fit like a glove. I can't get over how beautiful it was. I LOVED my dress and it just made my day that more special. Thank you for everything!

Carlene and Anna were very efficient and knowledgeable. They have a great sense of which styles suit a particular body-type and personality. My daughter picked out a lovely dress without any stress. This shop was our first and last stop!

Hi! I just wanted to thank you for helping me find my perfect wedding dress. I live in San Francisco and got married in Calistoga, CA this past month and I received SO many compliments on my dress. After shopping at about 7 stores in the Philly/NJ area, I found exactly what I had been looking for at The Sample Rach. And for under $1000!!! I had the best experience with the sales associate who was there as my aunts and I were crying over my dress :) Such an intimate experience, I was the only one in the store. Anyway- just wanted to say thank you and share a few pics of my dress!
