The biggest thing for me was to keep an open mind. What I thought would look good and what actually did look good were 2 very different things. I tried on many different styles, and it was obvious pretty quickly what style worked and what didn't.

I agree too about sticking within your price range. I didn't see any reason to try on a dress I couldn't afford.

yeah I have decide not to torture myself will all the Jim hjelm dresses that I like that are out of my range.

That was my original plan but I htought I might be too sad if I went alone- like I would be wishing someone was tehre with me or something.

There's also the bridal building on B'way & 37th / 38th st.. that's not too far from RK, so you can try that one on the same day as RK.. Yeah that's in the plan depending on how we are holding up.

 

I'm sure you know already, but there's a David's Bridal on Northern Blvd & 46th St. in Queens - Woodside. My friend had a horrid experience there with some really nasty, trashy saleswomen that worked there- so I nixed it even though I love in Queens. Going to the LI location instead.

My girlfriend & I are going to Filene's Basement's 'Running of the Bride's' in DC.. it's on Fri 8/1, so we're going on a little road trip Thurs night & camping out in front (Lmao.. never done that b4!).. dresses are heavily discounted.. the one in NY was in February & they only do it once a yr, so we missed that one! Good for you. That's hardcore!

 

Anyway, hope that helps!

I am missing my sis- she's a peace corps volunteer and isn't back in the country yet- till Dec. I have been sending her links and the girl is honest so that's good. I miss her though which is part of my wanting to put this off. I guess I just selfishly wish she was here to do this together. Goodluck finding your dress!
YOu ladies are the best! Thanks for the tips!smile03.gif

First FYI...Kleinfeld's is having their big blow out sale July 22 ( you need an appt.)

 

I first went shopping with my future mother in law, my MOH and 7 year old niece. I went to 3 stores and had enough after the 2nd the first was a waste if time so you might want to set up a trip to more then one shop that day just incase. After all the shopping I ended up going by myself one day and buying my dress on my own after being so confused by opinions. Just stay true to yourself and your personal style. Also in 1385 Broadway btwn 36 & 37 (I think) there are 2 bridal floors that sell designer dresses wholesale and it is open to the public just ask the security desk for a pass and they will tell you which floor to go to. They are showrooms so you get to try on and they are ordered new not like a warehouse of samples.

I've done multiple places in a day w/ family before.. you can try bridal gardens (dresses supposedly discounted by upto 70%) in chelsea, but they're by appt.. actually going there next wed w/ a friend that recently got engaged.

    • Are you looking for the perfect wedding dress? Or thinking of mixing some colors but weren’t sure of which color suits which? this is very memorable movement for every bride. for more ideas you can visit here, blog dot bridal dot pk.
    • The main idea is that you like everything. Be frank with yourself and your girlfriend. Just take and tear off to the fullest, using all permissible means. At the expense of a stripper, I agree, this is a great variant, then to become an obedient husband, have a bachelor party!)
    • I was also in this situation, I was afraid to try. But a friend advised a great site https://escortmannheim.info, where everything is reliable and proven over the years. There you will not go wrong. We went, chose a girl for the evening and enjoy.
