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.


I HAD THE BEST CONSULTANT EVER!!!

Reviewed on 8/18/2014 Solkristina M

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 cannot recommend RK Bridal enough. After having some discouraging appointments at small boutiques in NJ, RK Bridal was almost overwhelmingly wonderful. Azia made the day fun and relaxing and actually picked the perfect dress for me. Everyone working there was exceptionally... Read More friendly and professional and truly seemed to care for each of the brides there. Thank you so much to everyone there and I can't wait to see my dress when it arrives!

I would highly recommend RK Bridal and Olga as an attendant. She really listened when I described my style and helped me find the perfect dress. She was also very respectful of my budget and didn't pressure me to choose the more expensive dress, but instead encouraged me to get... Read More the perfect dress for me, which happened to be cheaper. The selection at RK bridal was the best I have seen at any New York bridal salon--including Kleinfelds

I had an appointment with Sheryl and she was amazing. She listened to what I was looking for and after only a few descriptors, she was able to ascertain exactly the right kind of dresses.

Don't go here expecting your typical bridal store experience. You will most likely have an inattentive consultant. You will most likely have to walk around by yourself and look for dresses yourself. Be prepared to be overwhelmed. There are lots of dresses so you need to be... Read More really patient. A lot of other reviewers have mentioned that the manager can be totally rude and horrible to customers. This is true--They've actually lost potential customers that way (namely my friend and my sister). With all that said, the absolute worst part of this store is the alterations department. I had Fanny and she completely ruined my dress. At the last minute I had to find another seamstress to undo her nonsense and fix my dress before the big day. The worst part was when I told her I was unhappy with the way it looked, she kept telling me that everything was fine as if I was imagining things and refused to fix it because it was the last fitting and it was "too late". Are you kidding me? My dress did not fit me at all and the buttons on the back (which were the highlight of the dress) were bunched up because it was so tight and loose in areas. Plus just because it's my last fitting doesn't mean you cannot do anything about my dress. The whole point of a last fitting is to see if there's any last minute alterations that need to be made. It was an epic disaster. So basically DO NOT GO HERE for alterations. Some seamstresses might be okay but it's a risk you do not want to take especially since the cost of alterations here are outrageous anyway. You're better off going elsewhere.

RK Bridal provided a seamless (pun intended) experience! Brides can browse the racks looking for dresses before they're placed with a consultant who finds gowns suited to their tastes. Olga zeroed in on exactly what I wanted and found me the dress of my dream. Prices were... Read More affordable, the tailoring process was smooth (I booked my dates months in advance), and I was floored by the final product!

I'm not the type of bride who was looking forward to shopping and RK Bridal made the low pressure, open environment so easy for me. I found my dress in probably about an hour. The woman who was assigned to me was so helpful and I felt very taken care of and respected. They... Read More didn't pressure me to push my budget or try a style I wasn't into. The only thing that is a little confusing is why they didn't alter the dress on site. After doing some review searching it seems their alterations department got terrible reviews. I ended up not going with one of their referred tailors since I wanted to find something closer to me in Williamsburg. The dress came in from RK Bridal 3 weeks early, which made it much less stressful when it came to bringing it to my tailor. I highly recommend this place for the type of bride who wants a million options in one place. I felt incredible in my dress and had a million compliments, and the dress (before alterations) was under $1,000. Thanks RK!

I came in to RK bridal not knowing what to expect. I was greeted by a very friendly and smiling attendant named Sheryl.

All I have to say is that I am so happy I went to RK Bridal and got the best attendant ever in April 2016. They have a very large selection at very affordable prices for all budgets, and the attendants know where to look based on your wants and needs. My attendant was Azia and... Read More she was wonderful. She asked me a lot of questions about the wedding, myself, my fiance, and what I was looking for. I picked out a few dresses myself since they didn't have the dress I had found online in stock, and Azia did her own investigation. Azia was patient with all of the try-ons and the dress I chose ended up being her pick! She was so intuitive and I'm so glad that she could help me out (and put up with my family members commentary!).

There is so much to look at that you need time to look. I would also suggest calling ahead if you want a particular dress on their website. I made a wish list on the site and 90% of my dresses were not in yet because the season had not started. However, I did find a dress that I loved below my budget. I would definitely suggest trying RK bridal. I really like the place and would go again.


The Real Say Yes to the Dress Experience

I used RK Bridal because all of my coworkers suggested that I go there. I started with Davids Bridal, and while they had nice dresses, the right one was not there.

Perfect Wedding Dress

I needed to be efficient and practical when making bridal gown appointments and this was the... Read More right choice, I bought my dress within 7months of my wedding. Their policy is no appointments, so I went on a weekday, right when they open, walked in, and immediately started the process with the help of a bridal attendant. They have a very large inventory, unless you know exactly what you want, having a few pictures of what you like, a designer's name, or even some exact dresses from their website to show your bridal attendant is very helpful. Within 1.5hours I had purchased a dress, one that I loved and a reasonable price tag to go with it. I was able to try it on multiple times, spend some time in it, walk in it. It was meant to arrive 1month before my wedding....yikes, keeping me on a strict deadline for getting it altered. It arrived early, I wish the salon had notified me of this. Unfortunately this is where their customer service was a little disappointing. The only reason I knew it arrived was that I called to get a status update on the dress and the woman who answered, let me know the dress had been there for weeks! I was slightly outraged by this major lack in communication....as they are acutely aware of your wedding date. Anyway, got the dress, tried it on, even more beautiful than I remembered, and took it to alterations at an outside place they recommended.
