Hi NJ Bees!
I am wriitng you from the heart of the Nashville Tennessee with the hope that you can help me find a dress place in NJ or NYC. My parents live right outside of Union and I will be going home from mid-June to mid-July! I am hoping to find my dress while I am up there but have no idea where to look. Any suggestion? Also, please let me know if there are any places to AVOID!
Many many thank yous!

Hi NGSW- I would definitely recommend AVOIDING Hollywood Bridal in Union. We purchased our bridesmaid dresses from there and the customer service is horrible! The big appeal of getting from there was that they included free alterations (not sure if this is the same with the bridal dresses) BUT the seamstress is very rude, does not listen to you, and just does whatever she wants. Also, they ordered my Maid/Matron of Honor a dress 3 sizes too big and when she asked for a smaller size, they just patted her stomach and said that she could not go any smaller (even if that was true, which it wasn’t, that’s a little harsh!) When the dress came in and was ridiculously too big, we ended up having to reorder the dress 3 sizes smaller since it was so huge and couldn’t be altered (it was so big that it would lose it’s shape on her to make it smaller.) Don’t mean to rant, but my experience has just been so terrible that I want to help others not make the same mistake!

Hi! I haven’t bought my dress yet, but my friend bought hers a few years back from "For My Wedding" in Cliffside Park, and she was very happy with it. Good luck!

I went with David’s Bridal b/c they had the style I wanted, but I really liked RK Bridal and The Bridal Garden in NYC

I had a great experience at Hollywood Bridal when I was a bridesmaid at my friend’s wedding. I went into NYC for my wedding dress.

I have a dress that’s a size 4 (white). It’s beautiful and strapless and actually bought it at david’s bridal in New Jersey but they had to order it since it was newer. It has beaded appliques here and there on the skirt of the dress, beaded on the top half of the dress. Corset style in the back.
I also have the tiara, strapless bodice bra, veil and skirt that goes under the wedding dress. I’m selling the dress for $550.00 to get rid of it since I don’t need it. The other things I need to get rid of also. It’s still in the cases and the dress is hung up in a long dress cover.
Call me if your interested: 908-313-2523. I live in manahawkin, NJ.
