Love this place!

I loved this place! I got a beautiful Vera Wang dress for a fraction of the price. I found the staff extremely helpful and accomodating. All of the dresses were great quality and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I have been to other bridal salons that felt snobby and pushy. Here I felt like the customers as well as the the staff were fun and knowledgable. I would highly recommend this site if you were looking for a way to afford a designer price and were open to many possibilities.

Amazing!

I had an amazing experience at the Bridal Garden, Gina was very helpful and provided me addresses for alterations, as well as advice. The dress was initially at $1400, but it needed alterations. I had an additional rebate and paid $800. The selection of dresses is not huge but it is definitely possible to find the right one. And what a price! And it goes to charity. I highly recommend it. Don't read the bad review posted 1 month ago, picky shoppers who expect champagne while they are trying on dresses should go somewhere else, and accept paying for this kind of service.

A Great Shopping Experience

At the Bridal Garden I found a beautiful dress for $350- no muss, no fuss! Sana was very helpful, suggesting alteration possibilities and giving advice. This is not the place to go if you are a high-maintenance shopper; you are pointed in the right direction and on your own from there- they don't have shoes, corsets, or anyone helping you into a dress. It creates a nice camaraderie among shoppers- several brides and mothers helped me make my decision. I liked being able to browse without a salesperson breathing down my neck, and the mirror-covered dressing rooms made it easier and quicker to judge each gown. I am a size 12 and found plenty of gowns in my size or larger (not always true at other stores). I was in and out of there in less than an hour, with a gown, veil and list of suggested tailors in hand. And best of all, it goes to charity!! A pleasure all around.

If you want to save money and do some of the looking and dressing yourself this is the place for you.

budget shopping AND social conscience

I was ready to wear a sheet to my wedding, but Gina at Bridal Garden saved the day. She was helpful, patient, calm and funny - the perfect combo for a stressed bride - and now I have a beautiful Paloma Blanca gown at one-third the cost. The best part is knowing that all profits help needy kids.
