Has anyone visited any of the BHLDN stores without an appointment? Were you able to try on dresses? It says on their website “To guarantee a gown consultation, we recommend booking an appointment, though shoppers are welcome to browse the collection at any time.” – but I’m not sure exactly what that means. I’m thinking about dropping in the NYC store at some point without an appointment. I don’t intend on making a decision on a dress, but I would like to browse and try on a few.
Thanks in advance!

I think it depends when you go. I think on a weekday where it will probably be slower it will be a non-issue, but you may have more of a difficult time on weekends as its more popular. I made an appointment for a weekend day at BHLDN in Georgetown and I made it for first in the morning and it got so crowded by the time my hour was up! But you definitely don’t need an appointment go in, you just may not get a lot of assistance on the weekend when you go as they may be busy with appointments or other people walking in.
But I had a nice experience there overall and I hope you do as well! 🙂

Thank you! That’s super helpful. Did you end up getting your dress from BHLDN?

I recently went to the one in NYC, but I had an appointment. You can certainly look at the samples they have out, but I doubt you will be able to try on dresses. My salesperson had to go in a back room to get the dresses for me to try on. It was really busy. The other fitting rooms were all occupied by salespeople helping others who also had appointments. There was no real break between the end of my appointment and the start of the salesperson’s next one.
You can always call ahead and ask if there’s a less busy time when there may be an open fitting room for you to try on the floor samples yourself. If you do, bring lots of clips so you can see how the dress would look fitted. Hope this helps. And good luck with your search!

I went to the Beverly Hills store and you definitely need an appointment to try on. You can certainly browse though! A handful of people came in while I was there, asking to try on but the sales people wouldn’t let them w/o an appointment.
I was disappointed with my experience there…Of the 4 dresses I saw online and wanted to try on they only had 2 in store. I was extra annoyed bc I called in advance to confirm they had these dresses and I was reassured that they did. After feeling materials, trying on dresses and assessing overall quality, I have to admit I was not impressed…
I hope you have better luck than I did!

I was just there last week and had a great experience. I’m pretty sure I’m going to get one of the dresses I tried on! They told me that you don’t need an appointment to try on the dresses that are classified on their website as reception dresses or bridesmaid dresses, but you do need an appointment for the wedding dresses. You can also stop by any time to look at accessories (jewelry, hairpieces, boleros, etc)
