    YES YES YES you need an appointment. Sometimes they allow walkins, but this is very rare.

      umm, sadly, yes. :) Gonna have to try & get over it next week tho when school starts back up for me.


      K, I'm not sure about Provonias but I think most, if not all, places require appts. (?) The only one I know of that doesn't need appts is RK.

      And Slap, I'm sorry you had such a crappy time of it hunting down the bridal stores over there! How frustrating!
      Unfortunately, I do think the "free" whatevers are just scams. I've gotten a phone call saying I won a free trip somewhere and one about winning photography & two mailings about free cruises/hotel stays and I think they're all BS. I think I filled out one too many wedding site questionnaires.

            Ha! pots & pans?! seriously. it's like those time-share sellers at resorts that are relentless & just don't get why you don't want to hand over an arm & a leg to spend time at their "free" condo.

            Good luck today! Can't wait to hear about your day!

              Ok sooooo...I found my dress i think...im gonna sleep on it but most probably it is.
              Pronovias is prob the best store ever..both the people are nice and the dresses are amazing..but I was afraid to commit because I wanted to see what klienfelds had which was my 2nd appointment. Klienfelds was everything i expected it to be! besides the fact that i wanted to just get a pencil and poke all the people there in the eye..the dresses were hurendous...like i was expecting that there will be things that will blow my mind but so expensive i couldnt afford..honestly? even if I could afford you'd have to pay me money to wear them..it was so bad that after 10 min of just looking around i told the lady im sorry i dont want to waste your time or mine but this store has nothing for me..you had to see the look on her face..like how can someone poooossibly not find something in klienfelds..im think im just too brooklyn for that store..lol

                First of all, OMG!!! How exciting to think you've found your dress!!! Where's the picture?! What style number? You gotta give us something!!!

                Secondly, hahahahaha! I LOVE it! you walked out on Kleinfelds! that's hilarious! I wonder how often that actually happens to them?

                  Thank you!! Actually its part of there 2010 collection so they dont have any pics up of that one yet they said..but as soon as they do ill show you.

                  as for klienfelds...i think people are too busy with the idea of getting the dress from there that they dont realize they are being abused in the process. OMG like i cant even explain how annoying and boring everyone there was..and there wasnt even a dress that i would have liked to try on just for the hell of it..like it was all that ugly..well no im lying there was one that was ok but it was "cheap" according to the lady..umm $7500..like who are you kidding you know that woman would never spend that money on anything and you have the balls to say thats cheap? everyone in there needs to be shook
                  meanwhile the dresses in pronovias are triple the beauty and a third of the price and the people there are soooooo nice.

                    nice. a cheap little $7500 dress. who the hell are they kidding? they need to get over themselves, but unfortunately there will always be crazy brides spending that much $ on a dress. You wear it once people! I dunno, I'm pragmatic so even if I had that much to spend on a dress I just couldn't allow myself to do it. I'd rather go on vacation or something.

                    So, I can't wait to see your dress! How fun! What does it look like? full? sheath? bedazzled?
                    And I'm really glad you had such a great experience at Provonias. Good customer service can totally make or break the day.

                      I agree 100000% with you..I def rather spend that money on something else..people always say its once in a lifetime, and im like exactly so why would i want to be wearing something thats that much money?
                      no but seriously they need to get over themselves..because its not even like they have pretty things so you can look and dream and move on...even if money wasnt an object there was nothing i would even want to try on..it was like a factory..brides running everywhere..sales people running after them it was nuts..atleast for me anyway..i couldnt stand more then 10min there

                      so the dress is like long waisted then flares out a bit...im going to pm you right now.
