Ok, you’re engaged and the ring is looking fabulous.
The variety of Philadelphia bridal shops and salons will give you an amazing selection of wedding dresses and bridal accessories to choose from.
In this Philly bridal salon guide, we will share our top favorite bridal shops with you, including average gown pricing for each bridal shop.
Make sure to check out the videos we posted below for some awesome tips on picking out your wedding dress.
The Sample Rack prices range from about $600-$2500.
The Sample Rack is not your typical bridal shop.
They offer off-the-rack wedding dresses, discounted designer gowns, and tons of bridal accessories.
The Sample Rack sells bridal gown samples that have been tried on in salons but are not previously owned or worn.
They are not a resale shop.
The gowns they carry are genuine designer gowns with original retails from about $1200-$7000.
They carry a range of sizes from 4-28W. The inventory changes quickly but they usually have more than 200 gowns in stock.
The Sample Rack is open by appointment and they work with only one bride at a time, offering an intimate and comfortable experience that is as stress-free as possible.
Since they only have one of each dress, they recommend that brides come to them ready to buy the perfect dress when they find it.
Shopping tip: Repeat appointments and credit card fees cost money so The Sample Rack offers a 10% discount for any bride who buys a dress during her first appointment and pays cash, passing those savings on to her.
Appointments can be scheduled online through their website.
