Thanks, I contacted her- she's very reasonable. Not to mention a 20 minute car ride away.

Hello ladies!!! I have my first fitting at Pronovias this weekend. I was wondering if any of you know of a great tailor in the city. I am hoping and have all of my toes and fingers crossed to slide into my dress and not need any major alterations. I know I will need a bustle though. If all I need is a bustle, I can't justify paying almost $600 just for a bustle!!! If I can find a GOOD tailor and pay half of that I am game. Any suggestions?

Oh - and VdayBride - check New York magazine - they put out issues of the 'best' of New York - and I remember seeing some tailors/dressmakers listed.

You are so right! In my mind haze I just looked in my folder of inspiration pics and low and behold I have the tailors cut out. Thanks for tweaking my memory :)

Hi Ladies,

 

I love this thread. Okay...I THINK I have found my dress at RK Bridal. Actually...I saw three dresses there that I really love. I just want to make sure that I have covered all of the bases before pulling the trigger. I've been to RKBridal, Kleinfeld's (sample sale), Bridal Reflections and David's.

 

I am looking for a dress that is under $1,500 since I have found one that I absolutely love for under $1,000 at RK. Am I missing any moderately priced Bridal shops in New York or New Jersey? Someone mentioned a shop in New Jersey that sells dresses at much less than they are at more expensive stores like Kleinfeld. Does anyone have a clue as to what store this could be? I have a friend working on trying to find out.

 

Also....I need a shop that has plus sized samples. It's just too hard to "imagine" what you will look like on your wedding day while holding up a size 10 dress when you need a size 20!! BTW....I think that a shop that caters ONLY to plus-sized brides would be a fantastic business venture!! I read here where one such shop is located in the midwest.

 

Anyway...here is the dress that is leading the pack so far...I love it!!

I don't know about the plus sizes, but a few stores I went to are close to the city on Long Island. Beautiful Bride in Lynbrook, Bridal Center in Lynbrook, Lilette's in Bellmore and where I got mine...Elena Bridal in Merrick.

 

RK was a little much for me, my consultant was a mess and didn't listen to a word I said. I am sooo glad that you had a good experience.

Good luck, it's a pretty dress.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
