Hello bees! I have begun my search for my wedding dress and had my first appointment at BHLDN, and have made an appointment to go visit Lovely Bride after a recommendation from one of my bridesmaids, but I am of course thinking about Kleinfeld’s. I first learned about the store since I watched Say Yes to the Dress and since I have a love for lace, gowns and all things fashion design I have always wanted to go and try on gowns there for my own wedding.
But here is the reality – I do not want to spend thousands of dollars on a dress. I know my parents will pay for my dress and would essentially give me what I wanted, I don’t see the point in dropping $$$$$$$ for a gown I will wear for one whole day, store, and MAYBE but probably not have my daughter (if I am fortunate later in life) wear. I know many women sell their gown, but there’s a high chance of it not being sold, and to me, I would rather not waste the money.
When I began to make a dress appointment at Kleinfeld’s, I saw that they list that gowns start at 2.5K. I realize compared to many dresses that is chump change (which makes me feel sort of queasy), but I think my budget is probably 1.5K-2.5K tops, but I know getting the dress altered and a veil (I want a shorter one) will cost $$$$. I know I can cut down the cost of a veil (so it’s not really worry), but I do know that all these extra things add up quickly..
So I’ll get to the point – Is it worth it to go to Kleinfeld’s? I do know the kind of dress I want, I’ve done a lot of research online through wedding websites, Pintrest, etc.
Can anyone share a more recent experience of going there? I might just go, just to try things on that might be different. I did try on a strapless gown at BHLDN and had an “oh my….I didn’t really know I’d love this” so maybe their selection would be helpful? But then again, how many gowns do you think they have that are really 2.5K?
