I found my dress at the Bridal Garden, and it was about 50% off the original price for a designer dress. I was fine getting the dresses and putting them on myself, and there were a couple consultants walking around giving tips and talking about how much more they could knock off the price. There was a good selection of lace dresses available, most of them very affordable. This is the place to go if you're on a budget but want something really unique and beautiful. I got a great deal.

I had a perfect experience at the Bridal Garden!!

I arrived for the appointment with my sister and friend. After a brief introduction from a stylist, she pointed us to the section where my size dress is, explained how the different styles of dresses were organized, and let us go to town at pulling out dresses we were interested in! This hands-off approach suited my style super well, but I could see why this wouldn't be for everyone.

I found multiple dresses I loved and, while trying them on, the stylist was super helpful and also gave me accessories (veil, belt, etc.) to try on with them.

I got my dress! They offer alterations, however (amazingly) mine fit off the rack. It was a fraction of the original designer price and, although probably worn before, was in almost perfect condition. Talk to them about your budget. After discussing, my dress was less than my budgeted amount!!

If you're looking for a brand new dress or a very guided sales experience, this place probably isn't the best option for you. But I absolutely loved it!

I went to many different bridal salons, I saw and tried many cute dresses, but it was not until I visited the Bridal garden that I said "Yes to the dress!". What I loved about this place (besides my gorgeous Simone Carvalli dress), they do not put pressure on you, like many other bridal salons that are still calling me. I paid 1/3 of what this dress is worth, and best of all, I did the alterations there!
Vivienne is an amazing person, she took care of me since the first moment! Thank you bridal garden for helping me find the most important dress of my life!

If you're looking for an affordable dress I would definitely recommend stopping by The Bridal Garden.

I fell in love with an Anna Maier Ulla Maija dress that was absolutely stunning and fit me like a glove. Since it was a sample (and the dress was really delicate), it was a bit damaged with a few tears/holes. However, they have a great seamstress (Sara) in house who was able to make it look like new. Sara was really nice, and I was thrilled with how it turned out! She even added bustles to the dress.

One thing to note, however, if you want the full bridal experience (like Say Yes to the Dress) then this might not be the place for you. They do have helpful salespeople who offer honest opinions (like Gina!), but it's definitely not on the Kleinfeld level. Since it was my first stop, I feel like I deprived myself of the whole "experience," so I would recommend making Bridal Garden your 2nd or 3rd stop.

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!
