You should make appointments, some places allow you to walk in (like RK Bridal, but there is no real “service”).

Some stores to consider:

  • Kleinfeld’s 
  • Lovely bride (not your standar dresses, but so beautiful and unique)
  • Gabriella’s
  • Bridal Reflections (great selection)

You try on sample gowns, and once you pick the one you love, they measure you and order the dress. Depending on the designer, dresses take anywhere from 3 – 7 months to come in at which point you are to go back to the salon and try on the dress again. 

NYC has various price points, so there is really no set price but I would say the places I listed for you are > $1K.

Good luck and have a nice trip! 🙂

@jessicabh:  Kleinfeld’s and Bridal Reflections definitely do (although I’m not sure about the manhattan location of BR – try the Massapequa one). The other salons don’t, they have other fantastic dresses though that are worth checking out! 🙂 

I ordered a maggie sottero (sottero and midgley Penelope) and they told me it takes them 6 months, so you will probably look at a similar time frame 🙂
