Krista Schmidt from Second Summer Bridal
First of all, Taylor was an absolute dream to work with. Being a bit curvier myself I was so incredibly nervous to try on dresses. Working it up so much in my head wondering if anything would look good or even fit, Taylor completely put me at ease. I feel like she understood my concerns and the look I was trying to achieve and just completely knocked it out of the park and found me my literal dream dress. The entire crew as Second Summer Bridal made my dress buying experience so wonderful. I know from the first initial phone call before I even walked in the door that this was the place for me. I can’t wait to go back for my fitting. Thank you again ladies!
Ashley Morgan from Sacramento
I had a wonderful time finding my dress with Bethany and the rest of the team at Second Summer Bride! They all made this a comfortable, supportive and exciting experience!
Alanna Eaton from Boston
Thank you so much to Taylor and Second Summer Bride for your help in finding a dress for my wedding. Everyone was helpful, kind, upbeat, professional and made the experience comfortable. Taylor took the time to select dresses that fit my style as well as try something new. I am so excited for my Ruth Marilyn Designs dress; the dress is exquisite and made me feel beautiful. Extremely appreciative of the COVID precautions and impressed by the cleanliness of the store. Incredibly grateful for their time and effort in assisting me. I am looking forward to when my dress arrives, and being able to bring some of the magic and joy of Second Summer Bride to my wedding in Maine.
Melanie Larson from Second Summer Bride -Sacramento
What an amazing experience at Second Summer Bride (SSB)!! Amanda and the whole team at SSB were helpful, welcoming, and professional. They sought out my hopes and dreams for a wedding dress and they picked the perfect selection for me to try. I honestly loved almost all of the dresses I tried on, they were high quality designer dresses. Thank you SSB for making it a memorable experience with both my mom and my Fiancé’s mom. I also can’t get over how reasonable the dress prices are while also being high quality. Highly recommend to friends and family!
Jasmina from Sacramento
Second Summer Bride made my wedding dress shopping experience unforgettable. Even before I walked through the door, I felt like they took the time to understand my wants, needs and fears surrounding the dress selection process. I brought my mom and 2 bridesmaids to the appointment, and from the very beginning Amanda and her team made us feel so welcome. Amanda carefully explained the fitting process and chose some wonderful dresses for me to try on. I was beyond thrilled when I found THE ONE after only tying on 4 dresses. There were tears all around and the dress was perfect. I would absolutely recommend Second Summer Bride to all future brides!
I had a fantastic experience at Second Summer Bridal. The staff were helpful, fun, got a good feel for my style, and respectful of my budget. Highly recommend!
Erin MacDonald from Sacramento
My experience was absolutely AMAZING. My stylist took one look at my Pinterest board and listened to what I wanted and absolutely nailed every single suggestion. She was so kind and really eased my nerves going into the appointment! While trying on gowns, all the other stylists chimed in and helped out, and the environment was incredibly fun, comfortable, and relaxed. I found my dress after only trying on 5 gowns and I am absolutely in love and cannot wait to get married in it! I cannot recommend this store enough for anyone getting married!
Brittany Long from Mountain View, CA
I had a wonderful experience and so happy to have found my wedding dress after the first visit! Everyone was super helpful and informative.
Shania Trout from Fulton Ave
Bethany was beyond amazing at finding the exact styles that I had always dreamed about for my wedding day. I wasn't very excited until she literally found the 2 most perfect dresses for me within the first and second try ons. I had a hard time choosing between the two with multiple of my family in my ear and she just kept assuring me that its my day, my choice which I appreciate more than she will know. Her amazing attitude made the whole experience as fun as Id always hoped to try on dresses for the first time. This was the first place I went to even try on dresses and even though I was sold on the first 2 she assured me we can try on as many as I like to find the absolute perfect one for me. I felt incredibly beautiful in the one I chose and I am so happy she got to be a huge part of my big day in only a couple hours. I never thought I would find something within my price range that checked all the boxes as well and they never even showed me something they knew wasn't within the limits and that made me incredibly happy to not have that extra pressure of pricing too. All in all they did amazing and I will definitely be returning if this is the service that will always be waiting. Thank you Bethany and thank you Second Summer Bride!
Carolynn Thoreson from Fulton Ave
Amazing experience, found the dress and was treated with respect. Have been looking for a while and was feeling down but they totally got my style and really helped me find the dress! Thank u so much.
Had a great experience at Second Summer. Will certainly recommend to friends. Everyone was very friendly and I feel like I was listened to when I gave likes/dislikes unlike at another shop I visited. I'm super happy with the dress I decided on.
Katlyn R from from Austin, Texas
AMAZING experience. Everyone was extremely kind. They listened to what I wanted and brought the perfect dress out on the first try. I would recommend this to any bride.
Rebecca Rodriguez from Sacramento, CA
Great Customer service, I loved my consultant. She was super bubbly and great to work with
Truly loved my experience with Second Summer Bride. I came in for a Lillian West by Justin Alexander trunk show and the bridal consultants were such a pleasure to work with. My dress came in about a month later than anticipated. Second Summer Bride kept me updated on the delivery date and delivered the dress to my home. Would highly recommend this bridal salon for a wedding dress purchase.
Krista from Second Summer Sacramento
I came here last weekend with my mom and MOH and really enjoyed myself. The staff there was so friendly, knowledgeable, and hyped me up the whole time. They answered questions and listened intently to feedback. I never felt rushed or pressured. I haven’t decided on a dress yet but one of my favorites is at this store. Thank you so much to Bethany and all the staff who were so sweet and helpful.
Abbie from Sacramento
Thank you so much for helping me find my wedding dress. I was actually dreading shopping for my dress, and the whole SSB team made it such a pleasant experience. Amanda did such a great job narrowing it down to the style I wanted! I’m glad that SSB helped me find the one at my first bridal appointment!
Janelle Robb from Tracy, CA
Visited SSB today to shop for dresses for my sisters and mom. As always, everyone in the store was helpful, friendly and enjoyed working with us. We found some gorgeous dresses and they also helped me try on my gown again so I could try it with a petticoat. Thank you so much again Second Summer Bride!!!
Kendra from Sacramento
I had an amazing experience at Second Summer Bride in Sacramento! The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. I was especially impressed with Brittany, who did a fantastic job finding the perfect dress for me within my budget and made me feel right at home in the store! I also felt welcomed and accepted as an queer bride, which was extremely important to me. I would recommend Second Summer Bride to anyone looking for a great wedding dress shopping experience!
Maggie from Sacramento, CA
Wonderful experience, and the friendliest staff I worked with! The ladies were knowledgeable, great listeners, and showed a ton of patience with me! I'm so thankful I found my dress at Second Summer Bridal.
Mandi from Reno, NV
I worked with Taylor for my appointment. She was great. And while I didn’t end up finding my perfect dress during my visit, it was a great experience. And I would definitely recommend anyone looking to give them a try.
Jamie (Jayla & Bailey) from Sacramento
We only had two bridesmaids and it was a perfect Stop. We were able to find the dress for them. I loved all the styles and color selection. Super friendly and nice staff. We have our 3rd appointment in two weeks for the groom and groomsmen! I will be so happy if I’m able to get it all done in one place.
Rebecca Hammond from Sacramento
I had such a perfect day and was so happy to find my dress!!
Kris Robb from Sacramento
I visited Second Summer Bride for a custom suit for myself and my son. My wife and I are doing a vow renewal this fall and I wanted to purchase and wear a nice suit. She purchased her gown at SSB and had a great experience and wanted to give me the opportunity to shop there as well. I was crazy nervous to visit because I had never shopped at a bridal store prior. I was put at ease immediately by Taylor’s cool and calm demeanor. She was a pleasure to work with and was able to answer all my questions. The ladies in the store really had a way of making me feel comfortable and treated me as if we were already friends. I highly recommend Second Summer Bride!
McKenna Dalton from Sacramento, CA
Absolutely the best wedding dress shopping experience I could have hoped for!! My stylist Amanda was SO sweet and helpful, and we got lots of positive input from a lot of the other workers as well! Every time I stepped out of the dressing room I felt so beautiful and they really helped me pick a dress that I felt beautiful and confident and comfortable in. Their selection of dresses was AMAZING and they even helped my fianceé come up with some great ideas for the suit that she wants to wear. I really cannot say enough good things about this team and location!
Payton Welsh from Sacramento
My experience at Second Summer was fantastic. I truly felt prioritized and important. I felt like my consultant listened to what I wanted and she definitely delivered. I recommend SSB to any bride looking for a high quality wedding dress at a decent price!
Mariela from Woodland
Great customer service!!!! Staff is extremely helpful, attentive and social :) I had a wonderful experience in selecting my perfect wedding dress and felt comfortable with staff. I would highly recommend Second Summer Bride.
Ariana Angelo from Sacramento, CA
Great experience! Bethany did an amazing job listening to me and really brought what my wedding day could look like, to life.
Ruby from Sacramento
It was so nice having amazing girls work with me! I’ll start with the bad, BUT not so bad. I was asked 3 times the same questions. 1st: when I made the appt. 2nd: over the phone 1 day before my appt, & 3rd in person on my appt. it felt redundant that I had to say the same thing over and over again. It felt like the day-before preparations were not actually done or lack of communication between all the messages. Everything else was perfect! The ladies were attentive, listened and DELIVERED! I have my top favorite two at your store, and although they didn’t scream take me home, I will probably be back if I don’t find The One.
Jacqueline from Sacramento Shop, Tahoe Bride
Love, love, love! I went to 6 shops trying to find my dress. Second Summer by far had the best bridal consultants. They actually listened to what I wanted, provided lots of affordable options, and were so fun and thoughtful. They were also the only shop that followed up with me. - Not to mention, the most Covid safe boutique I went to! They ask you to wash your hand on entry, take your temp, have dividers and gift a bridal theme face mask. Needless to say, this is where I am ordering my dress. Thank you, Ladies!
Sophia degrandis from Sacramento
Everyone was super sweet and nice, they made sure the place stays clean. They understand what type of dress your looking for and they pick the ones your interested in.
Jessica from Sacramento
Wonderful experience. All the staff was kind and helpful. I was impressed with how attentive they were. I felt like they were taking in all my comments about likes and dislikes and adjust dress choices accordingly. I would absolutely recommend this place to friends and family.
Second Summer was amazing! It was my first dress trying experience and I couldn't have been happier! I felt very safe COVID wise. They really listened to my thoughts and opinions on what I wanted and picked out dresses that fit my style. I am so pleased with my experience with Second Summer!
Brittany from Roseville, CA
Taylor and other staff were super friendly and helpful. Although I did not find the perfect gown for me there, they had a huge selection and great input! I appreciated all of the time they spent with me to help me find "the one"!
Anne M from Sacramento
I’ve planned a lot of wedding with the last year being what it was. But the ladies at Second summer we’re so kind and patient! It’s not easy to find a dress for someone who’s looked at dresses for 5 different venues. Thank you to all of you for helping me find my dress and making our day so special. ????
Christina from Sacramento
Taylor and Avalon provided me the best customer service Hands down. Could not have made it any easier for me and so glad to have found them !thank you ladies you rock !
Marissa Moulyn from Ripon
Taylor was absolutely incredible she and the other consultants listened to exactly what I described with what I liked from different pictures I had brought in. They are so genuinely nice and they actually care, they all take there time to truly cater to you. I felt like a princess! They are extremely knowledgeable of there inventory as well, I was beyond impressed!
Flora from Second Summer Bride Sacramento
Loved second summer bride! I went to 3 bridal boutiques in the Sacramento area and the staff and atmosphere second summer bride were by far my favorite. They made me feel comfortable and welcomed from the second I walked in the door, and weren’t pushy about buying a dress (even though I did end up coming back 2 days later and buying!) Great value as well
Anika Larson from Sacramento
My entire experience at Second Summer was top notch ! The ladies helping were so fun and helpful, the space was very comfortable, and I was able to walk away with my dream dress. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Janelle Robb from Sacramento
My Google review: "I had an absolutely magical experience at Second Summer Bride. These ladies really know what they are doing and their knowledge about everything bridal was above and beyond my expectations." To be honest it was so fun and heart warming that I wish I could shop with you all over again. I feel almost sad that I found my dress so quickly and easily.
Jessica L from Sacramento
Absolutely loved the experience I was able to have!!! Thank you for helping me find the perfect dress to marry the love of my life in. This store had such a large selection of dresses and amazing stylists that narrow it done to the exact dresses you've always dreamed of!
Olivia from Sacramento
I had an AMAZING experience at Second Summer Bride that ended with me walking away with my dream wedding dress. All the staff were very helpful, professional, and covid-19 conscious, and I really appreciated my bridal consultant, Amanda! She worked with my vision, was incredibly positive, and worked with my budget. I cannot recommend this salon highly enough!!
Kara Rosier from Carmichael
I had an amazing experience in your store and Taylor went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and picked the perfect gown for me. As a plus size bride, I was nervous to shop in store and felt like the odds of me finding something I loved were against me. Your team is so kind and accepting, I really had such a fun time with them finding my wedding dress. I will definitely be recommending your shop to my friends as they become engaged.
This was my first and best bridal shopping experience! From the moment I was greeted, the ladies here made me and my girls feel so incredibly welcomed and special. I had purchased the Champagne Brunch and it was set up so lovely when we arrived. We were the only group there for a fitting, but they went above & beyond making me feel so spoiled! They hyped me up, but were honest and knowledgeable about alterations for each and every dress I tried on. I didn't leave with a dress during this first visit, but I left completely obsessed with many of the options. I'm sure I will be back ready to make the purchase.
Kylie Gaither from Fulton Ave.
I worked with Amanda and she was absolutely amazing! She had such a fun energy about her and she had me try on dresses that were out of my comfort zone and i ended up saying yes to my dress ??The store is so cute and the staff is incredible and you can just feel that they LOVE what they do.
Had an amazing time! And everyone was so friendly and fun!
Kirstyn from Sacramento
I had an amazing experience at Second Summer Bride! For being a tall, curvy woman, I never heard a dress size while trying them on and it made me feel so comfortable. Highly recommended! The dresses are beautiful, affordable and higher quality. ??
Ashley Rexford from Rancho Cordova
I could not have asked for a better experience than what I got at Second Summer. Amanda, Avalon, and Taylor (I think it was Taylor, I can’t remember her name!) were amazing. They hyped me up, and brought me exactly what I was looking for - it was seriously like they were in my head! I never felt pressured to buy, it just felt about me and what i wanted and liked the entire time, and it was so FUN. I’m so thrilled I’m a Second Summer bride
Pasepa Tuiileila from Sacramento
My experience at SSB was great! From the moment I entered to the moment I left the environment was open and welcoming! My consultant was Taylor and she was wonderful. The dresses she pulled were what I asked and I found my wedding dress. I highly recommend all brides to check them out! Thank you SSB!
Breanna Dodd from Danville, CA
The ladies at Second Summer Bridal were all that I could have asked for and more while searching for a wedding dress. The store was clean and well stocked with a variety of sizes and styles. They were patient and supportive when I doubted my choices. They were friendly and made me feel comfortable. I honestly wish I had started my wedding dress journey at SSB, because it was that good!
Morgan McBride from Sacramento California
There is not one bad thing I can say about this boutique nor the young ladies that work there. Amanda being the sweetheart she is, never made me feel judged by slipping me into and out of dresses. They all were very personable! You looking to be beautiful on your day? You want to actually have a different approach on looking at yourself. You want more hype women in your corner? Than go here. They really make it a special time for you! Thank you all for making me feel amazing and having fun with me!
