I knew when I found this store that I would buy my wedding dress there. I knew because I was traveling about 8 hours to get there and basically wasn't going to leave without a dress (and because I wanted to support a good cause). I did find a fabulous dress at an excellent price but I would echo another reviewer's sentiments that this is a no-frills kind of place. If you're looking for the experience of dress shopping I would suggest going somewhere else first but don't miss the bridal garden they do have quality dresses and support a good cause.

This review is not only for my dress, it is for the excellent job Vivian did with my alterations.
This i not a luxe bridal boutique. At the same time you do not pay luxe prices. Bring a friend or two to help you look through the racks. that being said, I found a GREAT dress here and I love it.
Vivian did such a great job on my dress and bustle for a great price.

*review is for dress and alterations**

I had an amazing time picking out my dress at the Bridal Garden. I went with another bride-to-be friend and had intended only to browse and ended up finding a unique and beautiful dress my first time out. Gina was very helpful as I looked and clearly knows her stuff. I ended up with a sample dress (with the blue sample stamp still clearly emblazoned on the inside) that only needed a tiny bit of altering. I'm pretty sure it was a costume or period piece for a production because it was truly one-of-a-kind without any designer labels.

The Bridal Garden is like Loehmann's. It is the ultimate foil to Kleinfeld's. If you love picking through clothes and can't imagine paying thousands of dollars for a wedding dress, you will be happy as a clam there. As a teacher, I also enjoyed their story and mission.

My only concern was with the tailoring. Julie did a great job, but my appointment was postponed once due to high volume and then when I showed up for the time that she rescheduled me, I waited for about an hour and a half. It became clear to my friend and I that she'd either forgotten about my appointment or hadn't finished the alterations. It came out beautifully though, so I would just say be sure to get an appointment well in advance to leave time for hiccups. Also, Symphony Cleaners about three blocks from the Bridal Garden cleaned and pressed my dress in a week for $75.

Perfect place if you're patient and a skilled shopper :)

I found a great dress at Bridal Garden for a great price. There are lots of different options for those not interested in looking like a cupcake. I found a very simple satin halter dress that was right up my alley. There was even a sale happening, which cut another hundred off my dress. I say go for it! Very communal spirit, great selection of dresses and it's a non-profit! Your money goes to a good cause.

Also, I found the ladies who worked there to be very helpful. Gina was a doll, not too pushy and very knowledgeable about what alterations would work with different dresses.

I found a great dress at the Bridal Garden - it was a designer dress in a sample size that was a real bargain. My dress was so unique, and I've had a lot of people ask me where I got it. The women who work there are helpful and knowledgeable, and the seamstress did a great job. This a a non-profit, so you can't expect your own fitting room and personal service like you would in a bridal boutique, but you get what you pay for. There are some real gems there if you are willing to have some imagination and work a bit to find the right dress for you. They can really alter anything to make it how you want it. I'd definitely recommend this place to any NYC bride!

I bought my dress at the Bridal Garden and had it altered there by Vivienne. She was absolutely wonderful and an excellent seamstress. I couldn't believe how perfectly she made the dress to fit me. I went to pick the dress up two days before the wedding (she had it cleaned and steamed for me) and (luckily) decided to try it on one last time. From all the pre-wedding stress, I had lost a little weight and the dress didn't fit me up top. I was in a bit of a panic but Vivienne altered it for me over night and my mom was able to pick it up before the rehearsal dinner. She was a joy to work with and I definitely recommend her to any bride looking for an affordable seamstress.

The variety of dresses Bridal garden have and the price point was very friendly. The fact that all the payment goes to a child's charity was actually really nice. Unfortunately everything is a final sale so even if you didn't wear it, you can't return it or exchange it with a different dress.

Gina knows wedding dresses. She knows quality and possibility, and I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience at The Bridal Garden and with my dress. As a stylist, she can see how to improve and personalize your dress if need be. She also is a seamstress and made my veil, which was gorgeous. As a saleswoman, she is straightforward and charming. The in-house seamstress who tailored my dress does beautiful work - detailed handwork with care and attention. Everything was done perfectly and completely met my expectations for quality, even met my mom's and she knows dresses like Gina knows dresses. We had a great time finding, fitting and preview my dress with these ladies.

I love the idea that on a day where extravagance and opulence is praised that a portion of the money spent goes to a charity. The Bridal Garden is great for a budget diva who loves nice things. I got my dress 60% off and it was amazing.
