I had two weeks until my wedding and was stressed that I would not find something in my size right away. We had decided last min to forget the huss and fuss of planning a huge wedding and we decided to elope on our original wedding planning trip to Puerto Rico. I When I got to second summer bride they had a huge selection. I am a street size 4-6 and they had about 10 dresses in my size. I was able to get an almost $3000 for half of that. It was worn once before but did not look like it did. The girl that helped me, I think her name was Natalie was patient with me and super helpful! I would def recommend this place. I will also be selling my dress back here.

Wondering experience!!

I absolutely loved my time shopping for my wedding dress here! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! I have to give a shoutout to Katelyn! She was SO caring, thoughtful, and actually listened to my suggestions which resulted in finding my perfect dress! I had a terrible experience at a different place and coming here to Second Summer Bride made me feel so special and exactly what I wanted my wedding dress shopping experience to be! Thank you so much and definitely will be recommending this place to future brides!!

Wedding Dress!

I knew I didn't want to spend a ton on a wedding dress so I decided to check out resale/consignment dresses and I don't regret it! Second Summer Bride was the first place I went to and only tried on 3 dresses before I found the one! Since it is a resale/consignment store, there aren't a variety of sizes so I did end up spending more on tailoring than on the dress but I don't regret it! Overall, I still saved more than I would've if I bought a new dress.
