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.

After hearing so many excellent reviews about RK Bridal from friends and coworkers who have gone there to get their wedding dress, I decided to head in over. It was the first time I was trying on dresses and had no idea what to expect. Janice, one of the bridal dress... Read More consultants, was an absolute doll and made the process of trying on dresses amazing. She listened to what I wanted and after going to pick dresses, returned with some of the most stunning gowns I have ever seen. Janice was so incredibly patient with me and the process as a whole. It's true when everyone says you may like one style but when you try something completely different on, you'll just fall in love with it. I always imagined myself with a dress that had the nude/invisible lining and lace up the back. After trying in those types, I went for something with lace but with some Bling!!!! Never thought I would go that route and I have Janice's wonderful eye for detail to thank! I am so excited! I went to RK on New Year's Eve which was a Saturday and it was rather quiet but I do realize that this store can get packed so go during the week if you can! You will be rewarded with wonderful gowns and consultants who truly care and want you to look and feel like a princess on the most special day of your life. Can't wait for the dress to come in and get those alterations done! :)


I HAD THE BEST CONSULTANT EVER!!!

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.

RK Bridal in New York City was the best place to shop for a wedding dress. They took one look at my pinterest page and knew exactly what I was looking for.

I wanted to go to RK Bridal because they seemed to have EVERY designer that I looked up. And I was not disappointed by their dress selection! I went on a Monday at around 12:00 and was told there would be a 45 minute wait (which I went in expecting, after reading all the other... Read More reviews). The woman at the front desk looked up all the dresses on my list (it was 4 pages long) and told me which ones they had, so I could go find them. The bridal consultant came out to get me before I was done looking, so the time passes pretty quickly. I worked with Celine. At first she was kind of quiet and she had me pick all the dresses I wanted to try, which is fine for me, because I already knew what I wanted. If you have no clue, this store might be a little overwhelming for you. After trying on a couple of dresses that were "eh" I tried on a Sophia Tolli dress that I fell in love with, and Celine explained to me what was different about that one and helped me find others that were similar. I made an appointment to come back and work with Celine a few weeks later and again had a long list of dresses, which Celine went and found while I waited for her. With her guidance, I finally found the one! Mind you, this was my 6th time trying on dresses and I started looking 4 months ago...Celine was so patient and not at all pushy. When she saw me getting overwhelmed, she left me and my mom alone to talk things over and encouraged me to take my time and think about it before deciding. I really appreciated that she didn't push me like some other stores had. This store is worth the wait list and I couldn't have done it without Celine. I can't wait to go back and officially say yes to my dress!

My wedding dress purchasing experience was great. Malak was my salesperson and she had me in a bunch of dresses during my first visit. I felt like she knew when I was in “the” dress before I did because she saw me before I turned to the mirror. She already had the veil and... Read More headpiece waiting for me when I realized I was in “the” dress. She was amazing. DO NOT EVER GO HERE FOR ALTERATIONS!!! I can’t stress that enough! I figured going to the place I purchased the dress I would be treated better and they would know what they were doing. WRONG! They had me with three different seamstresses who did not communicate to each other what needed to be done and on my “final” appointment the dress still didn’t fit, it wasn't hemmed and there was a hard line across the waist with all the lace stuck in the seam of the waist. I spent two extra appointments crying in the fitting room because they couldn't get the dress right and at that point, I was only 3 days out from my wedding. The owner was rude and obnoxious and spoke to my mother like she was running around the store cursing everyone out. The owner told me I had to pay $600 for alteration or I couldn't take the dress even though I only had $200 worth of work done shortening the dress and having the sides taken in. She told me my dress was custom when it was the seamstresses who messed it up and had to take extra time to fix it later which I should not have had to pay for. She even told me she didn't need me or any of my friends to make money. Please, whatever you do, do NOT get your dress altered at RK bridal alterations!!!

Wedding dress shopping seems like it’s going to be a very daunting, stressful task. The idea gave me anxiety, especially the way it’s portrayed on tv. Where to start, Ivory, White, A-Line, Mermaid, Silhouette, Material, Price, Fit, etc. etc. As soon as we walked into RK Bridal,... Read More my mom and I felt welcomed. A chic urban warehouse with wedding dresses everywhere. Unlike most dress shops that tend to feel stuffy, there was a relaxed atmosphere about the place. Nicole helped us right away. She reminded me of my grandmother and she was lovely. Nicole was inviting, knowledgeable and helpful. I brought her printouts of some dresses I found online that I was interested in. She pulled those for me and brought them in to try on. After trying a few on, and finding one that I loved, she asked me if I would be okay with her pulling a few of her own choices based on the one that I liked and my taste in gowns. The first one she brought back ended up being just the wedding gown for me. She took elements of the first dress I liked, and found one that fit me to a T. When we decided on that one for my dress, she was so excited! She went to the back to find a cathedral length veil that matched the dress and when I looked in the mirror, I finally felt like a bride. It really started to hit me. After we picked the dress, RK Bridal set up several visits/fittings with us. As it got closer, with each visit, it felt more and more surreal. I had my final fitting about a week before to make sure everything fit perfectly on the wedding day. Boy did they get it spot on! Fit like a glove.

Their slogan, “RK Bridal - It’s where you buy your gown.”…

…Accurate.

I visited RK Bridal on a Friday and waited about 15 minutes for a consultant. While I waited, I was encouraged to browse dresses and take photos of the tags, so my consultant would know what to pull for me. Pros: RK has a wide selection of dresses across different prices... Read More ranges. Cons: My consultant was nice, but I feel like she didn't go beyond the bare necessities. When I sat down with her, she asked what styles I liked and said "OK lets go walk down the rows and pick out dresses." There are literally 20+ rows of dresses. I walked down one, she grabbed 8 dresses and said OK lets start there. I kept asking if there was anything else from other designers that I might like and she said no. I find this to be impossible and a bit lazy. I'm familiar with 3-4 designers and RK has over 20 designers. I find it hard to believe there aren't other designers that would have had dresses I liked. I ended up trying on dresses from designers I already knew, which was disappointing. Although I did not find my dress, they do have a good selection.

Wonderful bridal shopping experience compared to other boutiques. I traveled from Albany, NY with 4 of my bridesmaid on a Saturday morning. YOU HAVE TO ARRIVE EARLY. They don't do appointments.

We did have about a 1.5 wait, which we were warned about before hand but did not mind it gave me time to look at dresses that weren't on my original list.The shop is very clean and the dresses are organized by designers with very big signs. Ashley one of the floor associates was extremely helpful as soon as I told her the number of a dress she was already picking it up off the rack. She remembered my name and was very sweet. Janice my bridal consultant was phenomenal!!! I explained to her my likes and dislikes and she got my vision instantly. She pulled several dresses I never thought to pull. Everyone in my group loved her picks and it helped eliminate some dresses I picked that I realized wouldn't work. She was on point with everything! She took her time, I did not feel rushed. I found my dream dress and the price was very affordable.

DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!! RUDE UNPROFESSIONAL AND COULD CARELESS! I went into RK Bridal 4 months ago to buy a gown at their sample sale. I went in and met Monica a sales representative that showed me 6 gowns that day. I walked in and walked out of RK Bridal in an hour because I am... Read More a mother of a small child that doesn't live close and I don't have the time to come back in. This was the first and only store that I went into to find a gown. A run a very successful makeup business and most of my brides and clientele have referred me to here. Out of the 6 dresses that Monica gave me I decided on the 6th one. It was beautiful but in ivory and strapless. I asked if I could order the dress in white and they said yes but she suggested to order it in ivory. I disagreed and asked for a white gown. I also asked on my way up to pay can I put straps on the dress. She came back with straps and said sure and put straps on the dress. The dress looked great. She walked me to the front they took my measurements ordered my dress I put down a deposit and I left. Fast forward to my dress fitting now2 weeks ago. My dress came in white perfect looked great but my straps that I had ordered do not match my dress. The straps have a hint of grey. I told the sales representative that they do not match. My dress was now white white and the straps that the original representative Monica picked out looked good on the ivory dress but do not match my white gown now. My aunt that came with me asked why can't they just take material from the dress and make them into straps? I'm only 5'1 and there's a good portion of the dress that has to be cut off. The representative that day told us no we would have to order extra fabric and beading from the designer. We then asked to speak to the tailor and get their opinion. A man walked in named Juan (tailor) and agreed that we could make the straps out of the dress. We then asked the representative to quote a price for me on the new straps being made from the same fabric and beading from my dress so they perfectly match. The representative came back with $120! $120 after I just spent $347 on straps! Why wasn't this an option to begin with. We asked the representative if we could refund the other straps ($347 ones) and she said no. We paid the remainder of the balance and left. After going home and looking back over the straps that are a different color I then proceeded to ask them again for a refund. How is it my fault that the straps are a different color from my dress? Why didn't they catch that if I changed my dress to white instead of the ivory that the straps would no longer match? Why didn't they tell me that I could've had the straps just made out of my own material for half the cost? I reached out to speak to management and spoke with ASHLEY who has been extremely unprofessional and rude in the entire matter. Not only did she say that it's my fault because I should've known that it would not match but she has given no solution except to line the current straps with more fabric and charge me more money? Not even a refund, a discount or maybe a courtesy of free straps made out of my dress. No! Instead she repeadtly expresses that the entire issue is my fault and even though they're the experts I should've known. I' even sent them pictures where she even agreed that they do look like a hint of grey but again tough luck they can careless. DO NOT BUY!!!! They want to rip you off and get more money from you. They don't care!
