Hi!
I have heard of them!
Did you check out their website? http://www.bridalgarden.org

I think it’s a wonderful charitable organization. I hope to make a trip there one day so let me know how it goes! Good Luck and have fun!

I think the designer dresses (Vera Wang, Monique, etc) are around 1k-2k, but you can definitely find nice dresses for under that.  The sizes do run small – most were around 8.

I went with Mrs. Butterfly and she didn’t find the dress she wanted, but there was another gal shopping at the same time who found a gorgeous dress.

Good luck!

I went there when I was looking for dresses. I have to say for people who are not a sample bridal dress size its not a great place to find your dream dress. if you are a sample dress size then you’re in luck. I saw a bride who was maybe about a size 4 (street clothes) buy a beautiful vera wang at a bargan.

I would check out sample sales, trunk shows and also if you have time running of the brides for an economically friendly dress.

 Since you’re going to be around the area I would also check out RK bridal they have a HUGE selection of wedding dresses that are at a good price. 

 

Good luck!

I went to Bridal Garden a month ago.  I was able to find a few size 8 dresses that I liked and tried on.  I did not end up getting my dress there but it was a nice experience.  It is intimate there which I like.  There were a few girls who did find "the one" which was nice to see happen. Most of the dresses were between 1K and 2K.  There were some on sale for under $500 but they weren’t in as good condition.  Definitely worth going to.

I have heard it is a hit or miss kind of place.  When I went, I didn’t find anything I liked…and I’m a street size 0-2.  I found a lot of the dresses were dated, damaged, or dirty.  But I have heard other brides luck out with a recent shipment.  It all depends on who drops what off when bc it’s all charity.  Hope that helps. 

 Also get there early or else you won’t get a fitting room.

We went there early on in our dress shopping and my boss purchased her dress there.  The day we went, there were many beautiful dresses and we came close on purchasing on.  In fact, we put one on hold. They also discounted the price on the tag. It is, what someone else mentioned, hit or miss.  It depends on when they get shipments in but definitely a place a would recommend.

 I f you are not in a hurry, it is worth more than one trip there.  And, it is for a good cause.

I agree with the above comments.  I did not find my dress there, but there were some really nice ones either not quite my style or not my size.

Also when I went, the woman in charge was quite helpful.  When she saw I hadn’t found anything, she told which designers from whom they were expecting new shipments soon and to call to see if the shipments were in.  So if you don’t find anything on a first try, it may be worth asking what the schedule of shipments is and whether any designers you like have upcoming shipments.

I was a size 8 street clothes when I found my beautiful Henry Roth bridal size 12 dress there in September 07.  I tried on MANY dresses that were above a bridal 8 and multiple that were below 1k.  My dress had just come in that morning, but they still knocked a bit off the price!
