Ordered my drop veil from them and it arrived in 3 days! The description is very detail and accurate, and you can't beat the price! They also have a pretty good return policy.

If you are looking for an antique/estate style ring or jewelry you have to check out Doyle & Doyle. This is own by two sisters and they have a store in NYC, and sells their collection online. They hand select each piece and have an impressive inventory of very unique selection. They have quite a few items that are modern replicas which can be adjusted dto suit your individual needs. I still find myself checking them out these days eventhough I already got mine =).

This store is at a very convenient location (union square) if you are looking for antique style ring. They have a pretty good selection for rings and bands. I went there twice, and both time were well recieved. They sales persons were friendly and very knowledgable. Although they are not the cheapest shop in town. This store makes a very good scouing spot.

I agree with the previous reviews, this is a very fun place to checkout. They have beautiful designs. Rori was very friendly and help me out during the initial design of my invitation. Althought their prices were a bit out of my budget.

Marina Morrison Bridal Salon
This story has a very intimate ambiance, the fitting space is just gorgeous with plenty of natural light. This store carries a very selective collection of designers, I would characterize it under Modern Classic. I went there initially searching for a Reem Acra Spring 2007 gown, however fell in love with my Ulla Maija instead. The staff there are very knowledgeable and generally pleasant to work with. If you schedule an appointment you typically get to try on 8-10 gowns. The gowns there are $3500 and up, however, you will have much more choices if your budget is $4500 and up. Also their alternation cost is on the high end ranging from $450-$700. Some of the designers they carry are: Carolina Herrera, Elizabeth Filmore (My #2 choice, it was a tough decision), Liancarlo, Peter Langner, and Ulla Maija. Will update more on the service after my first dress fitting! The fitting experience is wonderfully smooth, they are profesional and detail oriented. I love my experience and will recommend this store to any bride to be!

This store is a must visit if you are planning on custom making your Chinese dress, which I will always recommend. In addition to all the tradition silk brocade patterns, they also have a huge selections of more contemporary designs in silk, velvet, and other fabrics that I don't know the names of. I wanted to get away from the traditional red and gold silk pattern, so I chose a pattern in Burn-velvet. My mom also got the fabric there for her dress both at very reasonable prices. The ladies at the shop are very friendly and knowledgeable, they have a list of tailors that are very reputable for both the traditional Chinese and Vietnamese dress. Will post the picture of dresses after wedding

I LOVE LOVE LOVED working with nicole! Our flowers turned out to be so beautiful, and beyond our expectations. Our guest talked for days how beautiful everything looked. Nicole is so very creative and absolutely willing to work with your budget (I know this because I had ajusted my budget a couple times, and had made many changes to my original scheme)and everytime nicole was able to make valuable suggestions to complete my vision. I didn't give any specific guideline on the flowers, and basically let Nicole run with my vision, and she pull everthing beautifully together. She was so professional, on time(early on wedding day), and thorough (Nicole covered arrangements for all the tables, all display, everything that I didn't even think about, she covered!!) I can not recommend her enough to everyone.

Lacis has a very large selection of vintage bridal dresses & accessories. Particularly large veil selection. The website does not do it justice, definitely visit in person is you can. The staff there are very knowledgeable and are ready to help. They also provide custom veil services. Once I got my dress, I definitely want to look for a veil at Lacis.
