        Hey lady! So, I know David's is out for you. Did you & your mom go anywhere else (other than the first 3 places)?
        RK is a popular store (on 39th, right by the A), Macy's, Kleinfelds if you have the $$ (but they have sample sales too), Nicole Miller on Greene St, the Wedding Atelier on 5th: Wedding Atelier: Shop designer wedding gowns, bridal veils, wedding shoes, and bridal accessories in our New York bridal shop.

        The Bridal Garden seems cool too, discount dresses & the proceeds go towards educating NYC's kids!

        I actually found this article that lists all the stores. Hope it helps!

          I've been to David's Bridal, RK, a hole in the wall shop in midtown- don't remember the name, and Gowns by Louise in the Bronx.

          Great post- I need to continue my search. I think I found the dress but I want to look around a little more and retry it to make sure it's "the one".

          I like the service I got at RK and will definately go back. Just get there early to sign in and don't go on the weekend.

                I think they're all new; samples donated by the designers or other bridal shops. Although that was on my list, I never made it there cuz I found my dress at David's (in Paramus though).

                  I got my beautiful wedding dress at Kleinfeld and, since it's a sample, I paid $999 for a dress that normally sold for $5,700! It's hand-painted and only Kleinfeld sells this Parisian designer. LOVE IT!

                  I got my BM dresses from a store in NJ called Nonchalance (in Morristown about 30 minutes outside of the city). They're Jenny Yoo and uber-cute!

                    I've heard great things about Rk bridal from a few of my friends who had DW and purchased their dresses there and I've visited Pronovias they have beautiful dresses. Went to Davids Bridal and hated the department store feel of it. Thought of going to Kleinfelds but I heard they charge for an apppt and they are pushy I don't get married till next July so I'm waiting till January to officially go dress shopping.I also went to Priscilla of boston for my BM dresses they have a great selection at all prices. I work in fashion and in the "Garment District" there are soooo many bridal salons. There is a bldg- 1385 Broadway in the city, it is considered the Bridal bldg the 12th floor is all bridal shops.

                      Ok well..today i went to macys and saks..so ive officially been to 4 stores.

                      Damaris-i would start sooner then that because i thought i had all the time in the world turns out it takes 6 mths to get the dress so get crackin on that, because its a confusing thing..i started this week and u love everything so u need time to make up ur mind

                      as for me...saks i hated..was a little to conservative for my taste..too simple and conservative for me..i need something a little different, dramatic, blingy and sweet at the same time..surprisingly i fell in love with one at macys, everything was kinda ugly except for the one that they had on display before u walk in and i was like wow thats gonna be $10k, but it was only $2k, so i tried and loved it and now im confused.Way more poofy then what i was going for but its ridiculously nice.. I want a dress where people are like damn! lol
                      everyone keeps telling me kleinfelds but im scared of stuck up sales people..because if i lucked out at the other place this place i dont stand a chance..and i know im going to end up falling in love with the one dress thats like 25k and then nothing will compare.
                      how the hell do you decide
