What a great experience!Reviewed on 10/26/2010 Jen R
When I googled "bridal consignment Philadelphia," I was thrilled to find Sabrina Ann. This finally looked like a down-to-earth wedding shop that was exactly what I was looking for. They have a large number of gowns, many of which have never been worn! The staff were wonderful, very accommodating and understanding - the woman who helped me was kind enough to tell a member of my party that one of the dresses she pulled was more than my stated budget (very thoughtful!). I never once felt pressured or rushed. I would HIGHLY recommend this to any bride who is looking for a pleasant, non-stressful wedding gown shopping experience.
BEST BRIDAL SHOP EVER!Reviewed on 11/15/2012 Liz P
I must preface this by saying that I was planning on making my own wedding dress prior to visiting Sabrina Ann. I knew a woman who worked there and I asked her if I could come in and try on some dresses to get a feel for the styles, color and details that I liked. I tried on about 8 dresses, but I fell in love with the first dress I tried on. It had many of the elements that I had envisioned my dress having and even had a few elements (like a gorgeous train) that I hadn't planned on but loved. The dress had been a sample in a bridal salon, but fit me perfectly. It was about 50% off it's original retail price, so my mom and I decided to buy it on the spot. I even found a great fascinator hat that completed the look and brought out my personality. I loved my wedding day look and can't thank Mary Ann & the Sabrina Ann team enough!
Review for Sabrina Ann Once Worn & Never Worn BridalReviewed on 5/10/2010 Consuella M
I loved that it had a small boutique feel, there were a lot of very unique designs. Since I had to travel a bit for work, the owner allowed me to call her from the road and place my deposit over the phone, so I didn't loose my dress.
I walked in discouraged because I didn't see the style I liked. I had tried on a lot of dresses already to see what I felt good in and I was hoping to find something here. I only found one on the rack so i grabbed it. But as my appointment went on, my stylist was able to get me another dress very similar to the style I liked and that was the Dress!!!! I put it on in the dressing room, and I yelled out to my mom telling her this was the dress!!!! I have been to Davids Bridal and other bridal stores. Most bridal stores for satin have dresses starting at about 1200$ but I was able to get this dress which fit perfectly second hand for 850$ !!! I love love love love it and the experience was amazing!!!! :) <3 I would send anyone there who is looking for quality at a lower price and not worried about wearing a dress someone else wore! The dress I got was a Maggie Sottero dress!
My sister had gotten her dress at Sabrina Ann, so I figured I would try it out for myself. It is a small shop, but we had 4 people plus the bride coming to the appointment, and it was not an issue. I worked with MaryAnn, who was patient, helpful, and encouraging. I got a perfect dress at about half its original price!
I went to Sabrina Ann for my second round of searching for my wedding dress. I had 2 gowns in mind at the previous salon but I knew I had to look around more. I wanted to stick to a budget which led me to find their shop offering once worn dresses. The appointment went better than expected. I went on a weekday which made the appointment more intimate.
I cannot recommend Sabrina Ann enough! The sales people were the most helpful and perceptive of anywhere I shopped. I really never imagined that wedding dress shopping would be such a great experience! The best thing about buying a wedding dress 2nd hand (beside the obvious savings) is that you will be trying on dresses in your own size; you'll only require minor alterations, so you'll get a much better idea of what the dress will look like on your big day.
My sister and I both got our wedding dresses here. FANTASTIC value & quality. I received so many compliments about my wedding dress... many thought it was much more expensive than what it cost me (given it was a sample dress, it was much less than the original cost). They had so many dresses to chose from, this store is a gem and a MUST for any future bride near or far.
Different styles, great prices, kind staffReviewed on 11/05/2015 Kimberly U
This was the only bridal salon I went to. I tried on a few dresses at JCrew, but wasn't thrilled and never felt like a bride in any of them. Sabrina Ann's was wonderful! It is small, so I would only suggest to bring one (or two if you MUST) additional people. The rep who worked with me was very helpful. She had me browse the rack grabbing anything I liked. She started a fitting room for me and the fun started! I tried on every style they had- even if I didn't like it on the rack. After about 5 dresses, I started to feel like I wasn't going to like anything and she started to bring in other options I skipped over. I finally found the dress. It needed some alterations, but she assured my it could be done. I kept the dress on for about 30 minutes, veil as well and left with it that day. She could tell what I was looking for based on my reactions to the dresses I was trying on, and that is what helped me find the dress for me! Some dresses are new, worn once (in great condition) or were samples. Mine was a sample and had a couple tears in the tulle, but it was an enormous ball gown and unless every inch was inspection, no one would ever see it. I highly recommend this as a starting point if nothing else to get a feel for what you are looking for. But if you fall in love with it, it might not be there next time! It is definitely a great option if you are budgeting, my dress was half retail and in almost perfect condition.
Horrible experienceReviewed on 8/03/2015 Kate L
I made an appointment to visit Sabrina Ann and try on wedding dresses and it was very disappointing. Even though we had an appointment it was packed with other brides trying on dresses. I didn't even have my own mirror or area so it was a lot of awkward standing around in dresses waiting for a mirror to look in. The saleswoman helping me was really pushing me to buy one of the dresses I tried on even though I said it was way too hot and bulky for a summer outdoor wedding. She kept pushing it anyway so it was frustrating. I told her I had another appointment that afternoon at Nicole Miller and she said I should cancel it because Nicole Miller didn't design dresses for "girls like me". It was ridiculous and rude. We left and I did end up with Nicole Miller gown from a different shop that was perfect.
Found my perfect wedding dress!Reviewed on 5/31/2015 Chris L
I only to went one other big name store to look for dresses and one of my close friends recommended Sabrina Ann to me. I went with my sister and met my friend at the store. The dress that I bought was the second dress I had tried on. I just loved so many details about it. . .the ivory color, the satin material, the "bling", the ruching, etc. I felt like a bride and the dress gave me that "hour glass" shape. Although I had tried on about 5 more dresses and each of those dresses were beautiful as well, I kept coming back to the one I bought. My sister and friend absolutely loved the dress on me. My seamstress did the alterations and made a french bustle for me. On my wedding day, I felt so beautiful in that dress and was so thankful that I found my perfect wedding dress! My attendant at Sabrina Ann (I believe her name is either Rebecca or Rachel) was really sweet and so patient with me and she really took the time to help me get in and out of the dresses. I appreciated that a lot! Thank you, Sabrina Ann, for making my wedding day a really beautiful and special one!
Great place to get a wedding dress for lessReviewed on 11/05/2014 Tessa B
I love a bargain and I was looking for a place to find my wedding dress that wouldn't cost a fortune. Sabrina Ann was the first and only place that I looked for dresses. I loved that I didn't need an appointment and I was able to look through the dresses myself. Also you can take the dress home with you the day you buy it and have the alterations done wherever you want. My wedding dress was a sample, Monique Lhuillier that I got for about half of the original price. The dress was in perfect condition. Highly recommend Sabrina Ann!
Great ShopReviewed on 10/15/2014 Melanie K
I have the pleasure of knowing Sabrina personally and was able to work with her from a different state for hair accessories. The shop is curated very well, and has great selections for current brides with trendy, classic and/or unique tastes. I only wish that I lived closer and was able to buy my dress there! However, I will be selling my dress through the shop and look forward to that experience.

Loved the idea of a "once worn" store. They have a great selection of gowns within any budget. Absolutely loved my dress!
The Associates know what they are doing!Reviewed on 4/28/2014 Caitlin M
I went into Sabrina Ann's on a whim. I heard to try this store from a few different people. Now, when most people hear "once worn" they cringe. I was not this way. I simply wanted to see what I was in for. It was my first wedding dress experience. WARNING: This store is TINY! Must call for appointments ahead of time!! I forget my associates name, but she was just so great. I came in with an idea of what dress I wanted (a picture of the dress I found online) and she pulled a few different dresses and my sister, my mom, and I pulled our own. I told them my price range and the associate stayed within my price range only going over ever so slightly. The first dress I tried on, was LITERALLY the picture I had brought in...the associate found it!!! However, it was entirely too big and HEAVY, so I decided it was not the dress for me. I tried on a dress that I did not believe I was going to like and it FIT me like a GLOVE and it was downright GORGEOUS! I was in love. And it was all because the associate knew what she was doing!! I didn't buy the dress right there. They allowed me to put the dress on hold at $50 a week until I was able to purchase it, AND after I went to another bridal store and had a terrible experience, I made the decision to purchase it. The associate who handled my phone calls to put another weeks hold on the dress was very pushy and a little mean/just not personable. She did not like that I was holding the dress and not making a decision on the dress. There were no payment plans, and the dress was a little more than I wanted to spend. I felt a little pressured to purchase the dress toward the end which is why they are not getting 5 stars.
great experienceReviewed on 12/29/2013 Theresa M
I was the first appointment of the day, so we had freedom throughout the shop. Our consultant was so amazing, wouldn't even let us look at a dress out of our budget and made sure i felt comfortable. I bought the FIRST dress i put on and had an amazing experience. highly recommend.
GREAT PLACEReviewed on 12/04/2013 Aubrey W
Loved getting my dress here. The staff was awesome and they had a great selection. What a great way to get your wedding dress at a great cost!! I got a designer sample dress that was never even worn at half the retail price. I was so happy and the dress was gorgeous. They also have a great selection of flower girl dresses. I have recommended to several of my girlfriends.
LOVED my dressReviewed on 11/22/2013 Valerie B
So cheap! Never worn!
Beautiful GownsReviewed on 10/11/2013 Lindsey B
I'm so happy that I went to Sabrina Ann's for my wedding gown. I had a hard time finding a cap sleeve gown that I really liked. I decided to check out what they had and bought the second one I tried own! It was so inexpensive I was able to afford to add cap sleeves to it to make it a one-of-kind. I received so many compliments the night of my wedding! I also bought my birdcage veil their too!
They are great!Reviewed on 10/01/2013 Kelli
Awesome store! They have a pretty good selection and I got a sample dress at half off. They gave me a deal on a sash too! I recommend them to anyone who wants a deal on a sample or preworn dress!
MiraculousReviewed on 4/23/2013 Meg M
I was really dreading dress hunting, but Sabrina Ann was the perfect place to go. The dresses are top quality and provide a bride with the chance to wear something a bit more unique- instead of looking at the same style dresses over and over again bc that is what style is in season. Sabrina Ann was the first place I went, then I continued to look at other shops...before I knew it I was right back at Sabrina Ann's - they had MY DRESS...I knew it from the beginning I never should have gone anywhere else. Sabrina Ann's is a one stop shop! The service was amazing...it was truly a fun experience.
Beautiful gown, reasonable pricesReviewed on 12/08/2012 Melissa H
My gown was affordable and lovely. The ladies at the store were quite helpful.
A great find at an even better price!Reviewed on 11/12/2012 Shayna M
I got my Pronovias wedding dress at Sabrina Ann in Ardmore. I had gone to a number of other places and found so many dresses that could work, including one that I loved but that was just too expensive (about 1400+alterations). I couldn't believe it when I was trying on dresses at SA and my mom brought me the exact same dress (in my size) for about half the price. It had been a sample in a previous life, and had one or two tiny pulls in the thread (an easy fix), but was clean and like new and perfect! We got it after our first visit, had it altered a little bit (it was too long and ended up being a little too big when I lost some weight- oops?!) and it was just beautiful for the wedding. I'm a big fan of passing on a beautiful dress for a little bit less so that somebody else can wear it for their big day, and would definitely consider selling mine back to Sabrina Ann if they would take it (not sure if Sample AND Once Worn is still good for them?). I was so happy to find it there and and would highly recommend the shop to anyone looking for a good deal and a beautiful selection of well cared-for dresses, with help from a great staff.
Perfect wedding dressReviewed on 10/18/2012 Kori M
I found my perfect wedding dress at Sabrina Ann. They have a great selection, good prices and the employees are very helpful. I definitely recommend!
Sabrina Ann's is great!Reviewed on 10/13/2012 Nicole T
I found my wedding dress at the first and only store I looked - Sabrina Ann's. I hadn't even done any magazine looking before I went to Sabrina Ann's, so I didn't have much of an idea of what I wanted. Maryann was a tremendous help - she offered good suggestions and was just so nice and helpful. My wedding gown is absolutely beautiful, and I paid about $800 for it. They even recommended a tailor. I went back to get my hair pieces and ended up with some beautiful pieces that were a good price. Great customer service and amazing gowns for great prices!
