This was probably my favorite place we stopped in Chicago - they have so many options, and the dresses are well maintained. Kate was so knowledgeable on how dresses could be altered to work for me if the sizing wasn’t quite right. I ended up finding my dress here, and it almost fit perfectly too! It’s such a unique dress, and you cannot beat the value - I never could have found something so special for that price point anywhere else. My mom even found her dress as well - they have a minimal, but solid selection of evening gowns as well. So glad I knew about this gem!!!
I’m so excited I found my dress here! Kate was so helpful and encouraging without being pushy at all. I found my $3k Pronovias dress for half the price. Thank you!!
I would highly recommend this place for all the brides! I was able to make a same day appointment(very accommodating) so just went alone but Kate made me so comfortable. She's AMAZING!! I brought a few pictures of dresses that are my style and she quickly pulled dresses that were similar. I also got to pick some on my own and I really liked this part because some salons told me only they handle the dresses and customers are not able to touch the dresses. Kate helped me take pictures of every single dress and was just so sweet. I went to a few different bridal salons in Chicago that has sample gowns but this place has better options and prices!! Why would you spend 10k+ when you can find the same quality and designer brand dresses for a fraction of the price?! I am definitely coming back with some friends and can't wait to find THE dress!!
I cannot say enough about this store! The quality of service, prices, and options available are incredible! I made an appointment just to see what sort of options they had and was pleasantly surprised to find my wedding dress! I was very happy with the variety of options and price points they have in stock. Kate was welcoming and made me feel so comfortable trying on dresses. Unfortunately, because of COVID my family was unable to travel and join me to shop, but she took pictures to send to them. They also have taken great steps with COVID and only see one party at a time, which made the whole experience very feel more personal as well as safe with social distancing. Also the dress I loved had a broken zipper and they sent it out immediately to get it fixed. Kate was quick to communicate and reach out when everything was ready to go! And the best part is that I got to leave with the dress, with no need to order and wait for it to ship! If you are looking for an affordable dress and a great experience, I would highly recommend second city bride!
It’s a new store opened by an owner/designer Victoria who was very experienced, knowledgeable and professional. She had a great collection of sample sale dresses in GOOD condition for a great price. She gave me a discount and great advice on how to take care of a dress and alternations. Highly recommended!
