No need to spend a fortune to get a dream dress!

Reviewed on 8/09/2010 Courtney P

For my wedding I wanted a stunning wedding dress. I pored over page after page of wedding magazines, trying to find the perfect dress. But I also didn't want to have to spend $5,000 or up on a dress that I would wear for one day. I read some positive reviews of RK Bridal, so I... Read More thought I'd give it a shot. I got my mom and bridesmaids together and in one day we hit three places. RK Bridal was the first. It's not a glamorous salon, with chaise lounges, snooty saleswomen and glasses of champagne handed out. If that's what you want, then you probably have no qualms about wasting thousands and thousands of dollars on a wedding gown, so go right ahead. They have tons of dresses, and one of the things I liked immediately was that you are encouraged to look through the racks yourself, to see what you like. My consultant was Sheryl, and she was awesome. Very sweet and friendly. She listened to what I liked and didn't like in dresses, and set out to pick a few to try on. All but one of her choices looked great on, and she took what worked and what didn't in mind as she went in search of more. We had a great time, and I felt like she was another (extremely knowledgable) friend helping me find my perfect dress. At the end of the appointment I had two very strong contenders. I told her I wanted to think about it because I'm not an impulse buyer, and said that we had two other appointments that day at other salons. She said she totally understood and that she hoped she'd see me again. We hugged as my group and I got ready to go, and the rest of the day I kept comparing my experiences at the other salons to the one I'd had at RK Bridal. When I was at Kleinfeld's (a terribly disappointing and frustrating experience in which they pressured me non-stop to purchase then & there, and my hour and a half time slot turned into 33 minutes because they were overbooked) I'd say to my friends, "You know, Sheryl didn't just pick out the exact dresses I had pictures of -- SHE showed me other options." At the third salon I remarked that Sheryl had actually seemed to care about helping me find the right dress and gave me personal attention, instead of just shuttling me off to a dressing room with my friends and dashing over to the next customer. In the end of course, it came down to the dress. And the dress I fell in love with was one from RK Bridal. It was really, really beautiful, just what I'd had in mind but hadn't been able to fully describe, and it cost less than $2,000. It didn't look any less expensive than any of the more costly dresses I'd tried on at other stores. On my wedding day I received tons of compliments on the dress, and my groom said I looked like a fairy tale princess or old-fashioned movie star (I love old movies, so this was a look I was aiming for). He couldn't stop staring at me, and on our wedding video you can hear him saying several times that I just look so beautiful. That's the only endorsement I really needed to know I'd made the right choice. I felt like a million bucks without having to spend nearly that amount! ;-) So, RK Bridal worked for me. The dresses I tried on were great quality, reasonably priced, and the service was the best I received anywhere I went. My experience with alterations was also stellar. The ladies in tailoring were incredibly nice, very exacting, and made sure that the dress fit as if it had been made just for me. They gave me a dream experience, a dream of a price, and definitely a dream dress.

My wedding is on August 1 2015 and I am having a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic.. I just recently purchased my wedding dress from Rk Bridal. Let me start off by saying I am not a girly girl, I hate shopping and looking through racks. So when i got to Rk i was... Read More overwhelmed because they have alot of dresses and its hard to look through the plastic because alot of them don't have pictures. So I highly recommend have some sort of idea on what you want to tell your consultant because they know the store more than you do. As I waited my turn I was observing everything (mind you it was a Saturday and packed) everyone looked cranky. Then I saw Lisa and she looked very friendly, happy, and welcoming. Even my sister-in-law noticed and told me I hope you get her ( I was thinking the same thing) lol. As I waited Lisa went to the list and called my name and I have to tell you she is amazing. She was friendly, attentive, and the biggest part was she listened to what I wanted and took it a step further. She asked details about my wedding to make sure that I was going to be comfortable in every way. She even gave me the opportunity to try different types of dresses to see what works with me and what doesn't so that I didn't have any doubt with choosing my dress. So I haven't finished the whole process with Rk yet, but so far so good. I even went to other stores just because i couldn't believe that I found my dress that fast in the first store that i went to and no consultant I met was like Lisa. She made my experience that much better, like I was shopping with a girlfriend. So i highly recommend when you see go to Rk bridal ask for Lisa she understands that this is the most important dress that you will purchase in your life, and she makes you feel important.

Divine Appointment

Reviewed on 7/20/2014 Cherelyn S

My experience at RK Bridal was truly a divine appointment. My wedding is in November 2014. The service was impeccable and my bridal consultant, Sheryl, was OUTSTANDING. My mom passed away last year and while I am excited about being married, I was not looking forward to the... Read More process of getting married, because my mother is no longer here to help with all of the details... I truly believe my mother's spirit guided me to Sheryl because we clicked immediately... I came in with one dress in mind, which the store didn't have. However, Sheryl paid attention to the style of the dress and my likes/dislikes and she assured me that she would find "my dress". She did not disappoint!! Not only did she find my dress, but she found my veil and the perfect belt for my dress. She was very sensitive to my situation but remained extremely professional. Sheryl truly made my experience a memorable one. She was honest. Her focus wasn't on finding or selling me any dress but rather on finding the perfect dress for me and she did!! And she was mindful of my budget!!! The dress, veil and belt (combined) cost less than the original dress I came in hoping to find.. Madison was also very courteous and helpful- in ordering my dress and accessories, in addition to explaining the store policies, etc... RK Bridal was the only store I visited and I am very pleased with the level of service I received from Sheryl, Madison and all staff I encountered!!

I had a great experience at RK.

Took 2 trips to RK Bridal before officially finding "the one"! Luckily, I had the incredible help of Cheryl, one of the very talented associates who works there. She was EXACTLY who I needed by my side. She is up-front with you and honest about how you look, she is quick and... Read More efficient, she knows how to pair the proper veil and belt with the dress, if applicable, and made incredible suggestions. I simply showed her ONE photo of a dress I tried on and loved, and she pulled 4 dresses that were almost identical. I was so in love with one of the dresses that I took it home that day! She is very talented and I highly recommend requesting her when going to RK!!

I am a very picky bride, so it was nice not to have the pressure of a "stylist" to direct me to dresses that were not my style or in my budget. RK Bridal lets you pick 5 dresses, and one of the dresses happened to be the one. All was fine and dandy until money came into play. I... Read More had known from watching many bridal shows that it's always wise to size up. When I found out I was in between sizes, they ensured me that I should size down because I was "tiny." I trusted them because they were "experts," but I probably should have listened to my gut instinct. I'm not sure why they gave me this advice, but I'm willing to believe it was to get me to pay and trust their alterations department to do the work. When I went in to try the dress on for the first time, it was pulling in my most self conscious areas (my hips and thighs), and the alterations department treated my concerns like it was nothing. Instead they were pretty much objectifying my body, and again reassuring me that it was the right size. I left uncomfortable. After that experience, I knew I needed to cancel all of my alterations appointments. I found a different tailor closer to my place, and she awful experience into an amazing one. I credit RK Bridal for having my dream dress in stock, but they contributed nothing to the final result. I wish I knew ahead of time to not buy my dress here, but I'm so relived that I knew better than to not work with their alternations department. No Frills (bridesmaid) was a service I wish I didn't go with. Absolutely agonizing if you have bridesmaids that wait until the last minute. If you're a bride that absolutely cares if they all come from the same dye lot, fine, but I probably wouldn't have noticed if one dress was slightly more blue than the other.

I came to RK Bridal by myself on a random Monday morning. I didn't realize it at the time, but it was definitely a great day to be there -there were no other clients there at the time and I had my consultants full attention plus the opinions/advice from a few others. I... Read More realized how lucky I was when I came back to try my dress on after it arrived from being ordered and the place was crazy! There were people everywhere and it was definitely a busy place to be. My consultant was great and very helpful! I had tried dresses on at a few other places with my mom and friends and with everyone's opinions, I found myself not able to listen to my own very well. I came to RK Bridal on a day I needed a pick-me-up and left with a wedding dress! RK has a huge selection of dresses (bridesmaid and MOB dresses too) and doesn't take appointments. It's a first come, first serve and you have the freedom to look through the racks and choose your own dresses to try on, something a lot of salons (at least where I looked in NY) don't allow you to do. They have dresses at all price points and a range of designers. Definitely a place worth your time!

This place has a great selection that may be overwhelming for some people. I did my research online before I visited RK Bridal. Since you do not have to make an appointment you may have to wait long like I did to be seen BUT it was so worth it! I gathered my top four dresses and... Read More all my guests joined me in trying on my dresses. Amazingly I found my dress that same day! The process was seamless and everyone was polite and helpful. Fanny the seamstress was a delight. She explained what she noticed the dress needed and provided directions on how to best get in and out of my dress. I have been recommending RK Bridal to others and will continue to do because my dress was the most complimented part of my wedding. Also RK Bridal has the option to preserve your dress as well which I believe is a great idea. One less thing to do after the wedding. Your gown is shipped directly to you. Thank you RK Bridal!

I went to RK as my first salon and had Olga as my consultant. We were seen right away and Olga took her time to learn what I was into and what I didn't like.

I'm from California, but was visiting New York with my mom. I had read a few of RK Bridal's reviews, and we decided to pop in on a Saturday morning just to check out their selection. It was my first time trying on dresses, and it was a fantastic experience. They have a wonderful...

The store manager was extremely kind, welcoming, and friendly, and all the staff we interacted with were approachable and helpful.

I know this place got a lot of mixed reviews but I had a great experience buying my dress here. I already knew what dress I wanted (from trying it on at other salons) and my friend told me about RK Bridal and how it would cost a lot less (versus Kleinfelds). So I called, gave... Read More them the style number for the dress and came in to try it on. Since RK is more of a no frill, no appointment kind of place, I wasn't expecting grade A service but the consultant was helpful and patient. She didn't need to pull any additional dresses for me since I already knew what I wanted to try on (so maybe the experience is different if you were trying on multiple dress and/or still in search). I ended up getting my alterations done too and they did a fantastic job!! 3 fittings and each time it was a smooth process and easy. I had to change my appointment a couple times and they were pretty accomodating. I would highly recommend brides to check out RK Bridal especially if you already know what dress you want. They were flexible with me to ship my dress to NJ (so I didn't have to pay taxes) but my only annoyance was that for alterations, we had to pay CASH ONLY. I didn't like walking around NYC with that much cash on me. I wish they would let me pay with a credit card and rack up some more points.

April 16, 2016 bride here and I love RK Bridal. I am that girl who has dreamed of her wedding since she was 8. I created a wedding binder at the age of 14, pre-Pinterest if you will, and cut out pictures of dresses, flowers, tore pages out of magazines and newspapers. Anything... Read More wedding related, you name it, it was in the binder. Including the dress I eventually purchased from RK Bridal. I did not even know about RK until I went with my cousin in 2012 to look for her dress. That same year, I was on their website and printed out an Allure keyhole a-line fit and flare gown to try on when my time came just to see how keyhole would look. I always envisioned myself in an a-line lace dress, strapless sweetheart neckline with beading and sequins and that's exactly what I found. I purchased the dress from 2012 and with a few adjustments to make it sweetheart (the seamstress was amazing and executed my vision perfectly), I found my dream dress. I took forever trying to find the perfect dress, fell in love with a few, but part of RK's draw was the fact that they carry older gowns from around 5-7 years ago. Their inventory and list of designers is unmatched. The entire team was extremely patient with me, the head seamstress was amazing and they gave me everything I wanted. Even made sure a belt I ordered was there in time for my final fitting. They relocated to the west side of the city, which is a bit of a pain to get to, but worth it. I miss wearing my dress everyday but there's no doubt you'll find a dress if you come here.
