- Wedding: January 2010 - Trinity Presbyterian Church/Harrison Opera House
I was hoping the hive could help me out with a few recommendations. I’ll be in NYC this weekend and will be able to get together with 2 of my BMs. Thought I’m letting them choose their own dresses, they requested that we have a fun morning of dress shopping. I’m looking for a few suggestions on places where they’ll have a variety of dress types and prices. Also, preferably places that do not have appointments so that we can just walk in. I know that I could google Nordstrom’s, but I’m looking for recs on a specific Nordstroms or other store where you’ve had a good experience, is close to the subway, or close to a good place for lunch etc. Basically, if you had a morning (9-1:30) on a Sat., what would you’re itinerary be?

Unfortunately there are no Nordstroms in NYC. You might want to try RK BRidal, which is on West 39th STreet, between 9th and 10th. You don’t need an appointment to try on Bridesmaid dresses there. You also might want to check out Macy’s or Bloomingdales.

Can you go to Brooklyn? If so, I LOVE my bridesmaid dress designer. Check out Kimera Designs. My bridesmaids picked their own dresses and they let me pick the shade yellow I wanted and sash color.

This link might help you out (it does mention which stores require appts) http://nymag.com/weddings/listings/bridesmaids/
My vote is for T<span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold”>wo Birds (a wrap dress you can tie a dozen different ways) simply because it’s awesome on everyone. My ladies are wearing them, but I do wish they weren’t so expensive. I also second <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold”>Lord and Taylor (5th Avenue b/t 38th and 39th, take the 6 train). <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold”>Here Comes the Bridesmaid is also good, <span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”color: #232323; font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px”>238 W 14 St., nr. Eighth Ave, and only a few blocks from Two Birds.

Jenny Yoo! They have dozen of styles that can be worn again as cocktail dresses and each style can be made out of dozens of different types of fabric.

I would hit up Macy’s Herald Square (34th St) – they have a 1.5 floors devoted to women’s dresses (and each floor is the size of the entire block). From Macy’s, walk up (go north) 7th Ave and 6th Ave (between 34th and 40th) – you are already in the garment district – might as well check out the dresses there.

I second RK bridal on 39th Street. no appointment needed but there is a sign in sheet. They have a great selection. There’s usually next to no wait to try on BM dresses. Your group can try on as many dresses as you’d like in the 30 minutes allotted. If there’s a line after your time is up, you can sign in again. HTH.

CK Bradley is in the Bloomingdales neighborhood and it’s the cutest store. They do custom and I think they should have some dresses in store to browse.
