I bought my dress from Kleinfelds too!  I just ordered it though, so I can’t really help with your questions.  I live in nyc but my consultant recommended that I have the dresses shipped to a friend in nj to avoid nyc’s crazy sales tax.  As long as I bring the sealed box back to the store, and open it in front of them, I can have alterations done there.

SaidYES:  Hi, I’m in the same boat as you were. I’m still deciding whether to pick up my dress, or have it shipped to Ontario. I am not sure if the same was true in 2010, but I am able to sign an affidavit stating that I’m not a resident of NY state, so I wouldn’t have to pay the NY state sales tax if I ship. They estimated that shipping will be between $300-600 (yet to be confirmed). I’m OK with shipping in theory, since the dress was manufactured in US because technically the customs costs should be low. However, I’m worried that at the border, they won’t look at the documentation — or there won’t be any documentation stating that it was made in the US — thus I will get charged more than I should. 

Interested to know what you ended up doing.
