I think we need a new post on here about where to shop for your dress since the last one was a hundred something days ago.
I just started dress shopping this week. I went to Rhylan Lang and Bridal Traditions.
Rhylan Lang was absolutely amazing. They have some really unique dresses and the women there were amazing at knowing exactly what I wanted. I found an amazing dress but I don't think it's THE dress. Seriously though this place is wonderful. It's so much fun to try on dresses here. They let you try on different veils, jewlry and sashes with everything. I know most plaecs let you do this but their suggestions were just completely spot on. They have more expensive dresses. About 2k average but the quality you get for that amount is amazing.
Bridal Traditions was sort of just awkward. I think it's good to go because if you find something there it's going to be at an amazing price point. They also let you walk the floor. It's nice to pick some of the dresses out yourself. That being said I found the staff unhelpful. They left me awkwardly standing in my underwear far too often, they didn't really have any good suggestions about other styles I might like, and the dresses I tried on were just really cheap. They were so heavy compared to the ones at Rhylan Lang since they were all made of synthetic materials. Also instead of clamping you in and making sure the dress fit right they awkwardly shoved a pillow in my back to make the dresses fit. So I spent the whole time looking like a hunchback. It wasn't a bad experience at all just for a different kind of bride.
So my hunt continues. Any good suggestions? I've heard Ready or Knot is a lot like Rhylan Lang. There's also Sublime bridal and my Blue Whimsy in Fremont (just opened). I've also heard a lot of things about another bridal shop in Fremont but I can't find the name of it. I know i went prom dress shopping there several years ago and that they include alterations in with the price of the dress. Anyone know the name of this one?
