Does anyone have any suggestions on a good wedding dress boutique/store?
Could be online or in NYC.
I need help 🙁
Bridesmaids all have busy work schedules and mom/sister are too far to come so I’m on my own on this, honestly really wish I could have my fiance come with me but that unfortunately is not an option.
Price range is anywhere between $100-$2000. I’m not snobby (like so many New Yorkers) where is has to be over $1000 to be considered “nice”. I’ll rock a $100 dress if it fits and looks right.

Try RK Bridal or Bridal Garden. RK Bridal has a big selection at all different price points, and Bridal Garden sells samples, so you may be able to get a great deal there.

Try bestbridalprices.com, it’s not based in NY but is a legit business as well.

I agree with RK Bridal! And I’m pretty sure you can just walk in instead of making an appt.

I didn’t get my wedding dress and RK Bridal, but I did get my Maid/Matron of Honor dress for my sisters wedding there and they were great! Very reasonably priced, helpful, large selection and my dress was in much earlier than they anticipated. Good luck!

I say RK bridal for your price range. Also maybe Wedding Atelier….my range was up to $5,000 but I remember trying on atleast 3 dresses there that were about $1500-2000

I live in midtown Manhattan, and I’m sort of lazy, so I didn’t go out of manhattan to see a dress.
I’d say the most “economical” bridal store in Manhattan is David’s Bridal, where you can find many dresses that are less than $1000. If you’re around size 8-10 (wedding gown size), you may benefit from lots of sample sales, such as “pronovias”, in the city!
RK Bridal: You can only try 5 dresses each time, and the store is like a big warehouse. So make sure you pick some dresses from their website before you go. (Write down as many dresses as possible because they may not have some of the dresses in the store.)
Bridal Garden: They have many high-end designer dresses. If you are between size 2 and size 8. I think you’ll have many choices there. But almost all of the dresses are in somewhat or seriously bad conditions. However, I’ve heard the seamstress there is amazing and she could fix everything. The price will depend on which dress you pick… I feel like the price is really negotiable since they are non-profit.
The other popular store is “lovely bride”, where you can find some dresses under $2000. Please book an appointment asap because it’s really popular and you may get your appointment in a month…
Hope this helps a little. Good luck!!!
