Hi everyone! I'm a hudson valley knottie but I recently purchased my wedding gown at Park Ave Bridals and wanted to share my great experience on the NJ board for anyone still looking for dresses.
I went on a Friday evening to try on gowns. They kept me waiting maybe 3 minutes, took me right into the room and we pulled as many dresses as I wanted. I found one that I loved and put down a deposit. My attendant was SO nice and very patient. She worked with me on the deposit amount and was extremely informative. The seamstress was also very nice. They weren't pushy at all and never made me feel rushed.
The next day I ended up falling in love with an Alvina Valenta gown that Park Ave did not have in their shop. I called them up and they were amazingly nice and patient with me. They transferred my original deposit to the Alvina Valenta gown and they're ordering my dream dress for me instead of the original one. No problems, no attitude, just extreme professionalism and every staff member I've worked with has been so warm and friendly.
I havent had any fittings yet, so I can't speak to that aspect of their shop, but so far I've found them to be the most pleasant bridal shop I've dealt with. I highly reccommend them for dress shopping!
