Yay! You’re getting married!
If you’re a bride-to-be, that means you found The One, right? What about the dress? Bridal dress shopping can seem like a daunting task to some brides.
Researching styles and designers… Visiting several shops… Measuring… Ordering… Patiently waiting months and months…
If you’re a bride with a longer timeline and lots of patience, that’s great! If you’re a bride that would love the instant gratification of finding the dress, and taking it home that day… we met your match.
Introducing The Dress Rack.

The sister store of Medina’s well-known The Dress, The Dress Rack was born in January and has partnered with several bridal dress boutiques to provide designer bridal gowns that a bride can carry out of the store same day for a smaller price. All of the dresses are brand new, tags on, unaltered and ready for you to come play dress up in.
All of the most popular bridal dress designers are featured: Stella York, Essence of Australia, McKayla, Calla Blanche, Martina
Julia, The Dress Rack’s Lead Consultant, was kind enough to meet last week and talk about how The Rack is a different kind of bridal shop experience.
The Dress is widely known for giving brides-to-be a five star experience when shopping for their designer gowns, and The Rack is no exception. When you visit The Rack, you will have a dedicated and knowledgable consultant, and the opportunity to sort through the racks of beautiful gowns available at their leisure. Julia advises to come in with an open mind. She says many brides come in just to look, but wind up leaving the store with a dress they didn’t expect to fall in love with. Since all of the dresses are sold off the rack and are not guaranteed to be there the next day, its never too early to look.
Every detail in the shop has been carefully considered to give every bride a personal and beautiful experience. After trying on your first round of gowns, you’ll have the opportunity to keep browsing the racks after putting on the adorable robe provided in the fitting room, and your friends and family will be able to relax in the charming and comfortable space. And when you find the dress of your dreams, The Rack celebrates you with a champagne toast, a goody bag, and the opportunity to take a photo with their adorable sign that reads “I found and love The Dress!”
To complete your wedding day look, of course there are lots of accessories to try on with your gown. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, belts, hairpieces, and veils. Even if you’ve already bought your dress elsewhere, Julia says she can still set you up with an appointment to try your gown on in the store to pair it with jewelry and other accessories so you know everything will look perfect together.
Inventory is constantly changing with new dresses coming in frequently. Brides typically come in with a budget of about $1000. You will find most dresses ranging from $650-1600, give or take. And although The Rack only carries bridal gowns, if you purchase the dress of your dreams, a 10% off all bridesmaid dresses discount is available for you at The Dress!
