I really lucked out w/ plain old Nordstroms – they have alot of styles that are perfect for tall brides (im short) but I still bought a really modern elegant gown there for $300! Perfect for me and was a "poor mans" winnie couture style, which made me happy!  Check out their website, but caution —- it’s nothing princess style! Good luck!

I’ve heard good things about Helen Bohn in Washington Township.

Have you checked out Ally Bridal in Hoboken? Not sure of her prices but she’s local. 255 1st Street. A friend bought her dress there and she was very happy with her experience.

Have fun and good luck!

I’m sooooo buying my dress from Helen Bohn Bridals. I’ve been there twice so far and they’re awesome.

Hobochic – if you are uncomfortable asking in person just call them up and ask where their prices start. They shouldn’t have a problem telling you…and for what its worth I dont know what my friend paid but she’s not a huge spender so it might not be as bad as you think. Plus in this economy if you tell them what you want to spend they might be willing to work with you on price if your current budget falls out of their range.

congrats Hobochic!!

I haven’t heard th best things about RK’s alterations department so if you decide to take it some place else Dominico’s on Willow (btwn 6th and 7th) is the best tailor in town. He can be pricey though so make sure you talk price before leaving your dress with him. He’s a miracle worker though!

really? that seems a bit weird to me. I also hightly doubt they would turn you away if you did decide to use them when your dress arives. Have you checked the Knot local boards to see if anyone else has first hand experience?

Hi Hobochic!  I went to a ton of places and went back to the first place I visited and the second dress I tried on….mind you I tried on about 67 dresses 🙂  I highly recommend Macy’s Bridal Salon – Demetrios is the designer.  I bought my dress at the Willobrook Mall but I did go to the bridal salon at Macys on 34th street.  The dresses are amazing – definely the most beautiful I tried on.  The prices are great!  The range is anywhere from high $900’s to approximately $2500.  I bought my dress, tiara, and finger tip length veil for $1600 total.  I did not skimp on the dress either.  I am some what of a tomboy but I really wanted to be girly the day of my wedding.  The dress I bought has a lot of beadwork for the platinum feel.  Good luck to you and congrats!
