I am a Maryland Bride and I traveled to RK Bridal New York to find my dress along with the bridesmaid dresses. You were the only salon on the east coast that had my dress in a size 16 and it was available for me to try on. I was extremely impressed with your huge dress selections! As a result, all of our dresses were purchased from your salon.
RK Bridal has outstanding services (bridal assistant, managers, alterations, etc...) and I highly recommend them to other brides.
Wedding -- September 30, 2012
Had the best shopping and alterations experience at RK Bridal. Olga was awesome! loved my dress it was perfect!
I got my dress this year from RK Bridal and I got a really good deal on it. The staff was helpful and my seamstress was great. They dress looked amazing on my wedding day.
I went to RK on a weekend and I had to wait about 90 minutes for my turn to try on gowns. Sounds like a long time, but honestly it took me over an hour to pour though all of the racks and decide what I wanted to try. There are empty racks set up in the corner that you can put your stash in so you aren't trying to juggle 5 wedding gowns. Those suckers are HEAVY!
My personal attendant was OLGA. If you're interested in going I'd suggest you remember her name (once again-- OLGA!) and try to see her if possible. Despite the long wait, I had her full and complete attention once I was up. She asked me questions about what I wanted, and also saw what styles I was into from my selection. I felt very comfortable with her, she wasn't pushy, she didn't rush me, and she obviously knew what she was doing. She gave me honest opinions about different styles on my shape and I appreciate that.
Olga spotted another girl trying on a dress she thought I would like and asked me if I would try it when she was done. I ended up trying on/loving/buying the gown she recommended! Everyone in the store told me how perfect it was (clientele included)- and she even found me the perfect belt to match. The clincher for me is that another gown I was leaning towards was double the price of the one she suggested-- clearly she was not just out for her commission, which I can't appreciate enough.
This is not a boutique. I went to some of those, and it was much more.. relaxing?- but no other place gave me the attention that Olga gave me. I gave it the 5 stars it deserves because even though it is a bit chaotic, you have to qualify it for what it is.
RK also guarantees the lowest price. This doesn't mean the dresses are low quality, they have the same designers as the other stores but just offer the best price!
I was very happy with everything.
I loved, loved, loved my dress! and so did my husband! RK Bridal was the only place that had the dress I was looking for. Every other place was either too over the top for me or too plain. and those other high-end boutiques (i.e. Kleinfeld's) charged ridiculous prices for the same dresses I saw elsewhere in other boutiques. The best thing about my dress is that it was what I was looking for and the price was well below my budget. The person that helped me knew what I was looking for before I even fully described it.
I also got my bridesmaids dresses from here. Great dresses and great value!
I felt like Cindarella every time I went to RK Bridal. Not only did they help me pick the wedding dress of the year which I'm absolutely in love with, but they were very helpful and courteous. Yes, it cost a lot of money to do alterations, and for anythig extra. But I think most bridal shops are the same. Be ready to have your wallet open. And be smart!!! But I was very happy overall with my experience. Everyone loved my dress by Enzoani. :)
I ordered my Enzoani Blue Casablanca dress from RK after having another bridal salon in Forest Hills, play games with me with not disclosing the price of the dress and not giving me a price on alterations. I recommend brides to start their dress shopping at a smaller bridal salon, so you are not overwhelmed by the thousands of selection RK has. But purchase your dress at RK, their prices are unbeatable! Staff is very helpful and their alterations dept. is great!
I couldn't speak more highly of RK Bridal. I found the dress I wanted in a shop and looked online for a better price. RK had my dress for almost half the price! (and it was definitely not a knock-off from China). My size wasn't in stock (I planned a quick wedding) so they called me the very next day to discuss my options and had the nearest size dress sent to me within the week. Very happy with the outcome!
One of the only places that had the style number that I was looking for. They don't take appointments but they found the dress I wanted to try on very quickly. They give the attention that you need without the over the top pressure of wedding dress shopping!
Beautiful dresses and prices. wonderful consultant to help you select your drem dress for your beautiful day. i got my dream dress and my bridesmaids dresses from here. the owner is so sweet and he helps you when you are stressing. go here is you want your dream dress and wonderful help and your budget price. i met a young lady that came in with a $8000 budget for her dress that she was going to another shop to buy(one from tv) and found the same dress and RK bridal for only $2000. talk about a deal and mine was close to the same $3000 and i got mine for half. Brides go here
My consultant was the BEST...(Jo). I went in with only three dresses in mind from their webiste. She made me chose a few, then we started trying on dresses. My 4 bridesmaid were the hardest girls to please. But JO took on the challenge, and then she suggested that I try on a special dress they had just received in stock. She said "Looking at you...I just KNOW this will be the perfect dress for you." I was willing to try anything, but pleasing my girls was her concern. I tried it and walked out and my girls were SPEECHLESS for the first time. I FOUND MY PERFECT DRESS....THANKS TO JO. She was VERY patient and attentive. The owner was also VERY accommodating and worked out a great price on my dress. I was ENTIRELY pleased all around...Kudos to the boss...he is surrounded by great workers.
Had so much with my girls here, and the team was amazing!
I walked into RK Bridal with what felt like an impossible task, especially in the current wedding industry. I needed a size 16 dress of my dreams in stock because we had to push our wedding date way up and we had less than a month to plan everything. Not only that, but I had minimal time for alterations, needed something to fit my budget of under $500, and I really needed a corset back because I was having medical issues that included severe bloating. I worked with Cheryl and she barely even flinched, assured me she would find me my dress, and proceeded to escort me back into a fitting room to examine the selection of dresses I had already picked out. \r\n\r\nWe tried them all on and she shook her head and said we hadn\'t found it yet. She disappeared into the racks and racks of dresses and insisted we weren\'t going to stop until we found 3 dresses I loved to choose from. We didn\'t make it because when we found the 2nd dress I loved, there was no need to continue. I would have NEVER...and I emphasize never thought to pick out the style she went with, but as soon as I saw it on, it was the absolute perfect dress. I felt like I had lost 10 pounds and it made my plus size figure look amazing. My family lives halfway across the country so I was shopping alone so Cheryl took me around the store to get opinions from other brides, family/friends, and another consultant. \r\n\r\nI felt like the most beautiful bride and walked out with a dress UNDER my budget that was marked down to half off. Cheryl asked me about alterations and sat with me to show me exactly what I needed to do (and suggested cutting off the train when I had it hemmed so that it didn\'t hide the back detail and fit our backyard venue better). Also, rather than trying to talk me into a veil that would be out of my budget and take too long to get in, she let me try on a couple of different styles so that I could get a sense of what worked best with the dress. It turned out perfectly, and my husband cried as soon as he saw me in my dress coming down the aisle (and he is not normally one to cry). \r\n\r\nI also have to say the young woman at the counter when I first came in was wonderful. She listened to what I needed when I first came in and reassured me that it could be done. She suggested I save time by signing up first and then looking around and picking out a couple of dresses. She also suggested I be very up front about exactly what I needed when I was paired with a consultant. And a couple of hours later as I was getting ready to leave, she remembered me and made a point to ask how it had gone. It was the perfect experience, and I\'m so grateful I went to RK Bridal.
Great dresses and experience. I recommend this to every bride.
I first found my dress at a small & chic boutique . . . but found it again at RK for $1100 less!
Olga was very helpful during my initial shopping process. After purchasing my dress & veil, the rest of the fitting-room staff were also very kind and helpful.
They're not much on gushing on you and having you & your girls lounge about drinking champagne and leafing through magazines. You have to be ready to go in, do your shopping, and leave. BUT, NYC-brusqueness aside, RK is the place to go for selection, pricing and super-professional & perfect alterations.
