Bijou Bridal in Paramus NJ is pretty freakin’ awesome.  I was in there today…     Definitely worth the trip  (about 20 min drive from Klienfeld’s)

i recommend RK for sure – ask for Jo – she’s super sweet and helpful! i almost bought my dress from there! they have a huge selection, and a constant slew of samples or discountinued sizes marked down.

i’ve also heard very good things about bridal reflections, and i got my dress from Kleinfeld’s (a sample) so thumbs up to them!

I got mine from RK.  They had so many options and I must have tried on at least 20 dresses.  I went when they first opened so it wasn’t that crowded.

Mark Ingram! You need an appointment but if you tell them you are coming from out of town they could probably fit you in. The service was AMAZING and has been since the day I purchase my dress. (I have been picky and been calling and emailing lots of changed to my dress)

The Wedding Atelier on 5th Avenue is amazing–bright, gorgeous space with a beautiful selection of dresses. I got mine there! For a more “indie” sort of shop, Lovely Bridal in the West Village is great–I loved a few dresses there but just didn’t get that feeling with any of them.  Kleinfeld is a little crazy and overwhelming, but as long as you stick to the budget you have in mind, you’ll be all set–they have such a huge variety of designers and styles. Have fun!

Wedding Atelier for sure!! They were SO helpful and SO friendly there, I loved it. Mark Ingram is also supposed to be amazing–two of my friends got their dresses there and loved it. I got my dress at Bridal Reflections, which has a lot of Romona Keveza and Ines di Santo dresses. Priscilla of Boston also has gorgeous dresses at different price points, and the dressing rooms are huge and nice. And yes, all these stores require appointments, so make sure you call. Have fun!

I just went to the new J Crew bridal salon last weekend and it was packed.  You need to make appointments there as well.  It was a nice experience but I didn’t find anything I really loved.

I’m planning on hitting Lovely and RK Bridal when my Mom comes in a few weeks.  I really want to try on some Watters and WToo gowns!

It depends on what you want to get out of it…

I got my dress at RK Bridal and would recommend stopping by if all you want to do is just try on lots of dresses.  it’s essentially a huge sample room full of dresses you pull off the racks yourself, and not the high end glamour experience of Kleinfelds or Mark Ingram.  But it is a great place to go if you’re still figuring out what you want and are looking to try on a lot of different types of dresses.  You don’t need an appointment there but it’s best to go early.  Also, have a list of the dresses (manufacturer and #) if you can before you go.

But for the royalty treatment and lots of eye candy, try to get an appointment at Pronovias or Wedding Atelier!  If you’re bringing a bunch of girlfriends and your mom with you, it’s definitely worth the experience!

I did all the shops in NYC, and ending up getting my dress at Pricilla of Boston in Morristown NJ. It is about 35 minutes outside of the city. Have fun!

@magilnyc: Any particular reason why you didn’t go to the one from NYC?   Thanks!

A friend of mine got her POB dress from the Morristown salon instead of the Boston flagship.  Everything went smoothly at the Morristown location.  We heard that the Boston flagship often has problems.  We were both living up in Boston, but are from NJ originally.  🙂
