    I bought my Dress in Prince Edward Island, which is pretty much across the country, and $850 flight from where I live, and I regret it!  I could have gotten the same dress here, at home, but since I bought it the shop went under, and now I'm stressed and still waiting for my dress that was supposed to arrive a month ago.  Plus if there's a problem with it when I do get it, I'm screwed, because I'm not going back to PEI to get it fixed from a shop that no longer exists.    We were there visiting family who lives there, so I didn't make a special trip for it, but I did find a dress that I loved and I thought, "what could go wrong" so I bought it!


    I wish I had bought it closer to home, and then I could use the seamstress that the shop recommends and if they screw up they guarantee their work.  As it is, I have to find a seamstress, and she wont be guaranteeing her work..sooo I don't know how I feel about it.


    I had a client who bought her dress from Kleinfelds, and she felt the service was rude and rushed, and they put alot of pressure on her to buy.  She also recieved the dress and it was too small!!  They ordered the wrong size or something, so she had to lose a bunch of weight, which is not a good stress to put on a bride a few months before the wedding!


    Anyways, I don't want to be negative, I'm sure if you go in prepared to walk away in case you don't find something there, you'll be fine.  But I'de suggest going with an open mind that the one you already loved might be "the one" just in case!!  You don't want to buy there just because it's kleinfelds.  And Do some research because if you find one at Kleinfelds and you can buy it somewhere closer to home, I'de suggest you do that!  (though I doubt Kleinfelds would go under, it's still easier to deal with issue's in person).


    Good Luck!!!

After a week I finally found a sample, but unfortunately it was 3.5 hours away. I literally jumped in my car and drove straight there (Augusta). I’m glad I did because it wasn’t what I thought I was looking for. However, since I was so close to Atlanta, I decided to stay the night. On the way leaving for home, I ended up checking out this cute little bridal boutique: Winnie Couture. I fell instantly in love with two dresses.  I acutally almost cried...and I'm not a crier..lol To make a long story short…sometimes that extra drive will save you tears of regret and bring you loads of smiles.  Don't limit yourself!  You're going for the wedding you want, now get the dress you want!  Wish you all the best~



      ahhh this scares me that you didn't love the maggie dress like you thought you would!! i hope i still love mine

        im not that big about wedding dresses, so  im going to buy it from the internet. maybe i'll go to shop and try on dresses of different styles first.it saves time and money. i have a few friends that have bought their wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses from the internet. one of the website they highly recommend is 7foxmall.com. they are very happy about the dresses they bought there.

          I am from Canada and I was so close to driving to New York to try and find something. I visited 11 stores before I found my dress - but as soon as I put it on I knew it was the one!!
