I had the most amazing experience going to Kleinfeld for my veil. I waited until close to the wedding to go buy a veil because my dress from another store came in late and I had wanted to first see the dress color to determine the color and style of the veil I wanted. Despite how close it was to the wedding, the Kleinfeld accessories associate Daniela not only helped me pick out something beautiful, but also made sure that my veil would be made right away for pickup in just 2 days! She answered questions and spent time listening to my likes and dislikes, gave me sample veil swatches to bring home with me to take to my fitting just to make sure I got a perfect match to my dress, and responded to emails. Daniela went out of her way to make this an amazing and easy experience, and did so with a smile on her face and an obvious passion for this line of work. While at Kleinfeld, I witnessed so many brides having an amazing time with trying on dresses, and the staff were so polite and friendly. I only wish I had gone there earlier on to get my wedding dress!

Upon first walking into the "Kleinfelds" it was very intimidating. However I couldn't be more wrong. As soon as I was asked what I'd like for my wedding, they were inside my head and know exactly what I'd like. It was a dream come true to walk into the main room and be shown a wall and told "have at it"! It was the first dress I touched and the only one I tried on. Kleinfeld's made me feel like an individual in the bridal world and I truly felt special.

The care and attention to detail was amazing. They have numerous dresses to choose from and everyone was helpful. They don't let you leave unless you are happy 100%. You feel special when shopping here and even with the alterations.

I only have good things to say about Kleinfelds. Its a little more pretentious than I typically prefer, but the alterations were hasslefree and done to perfection. I also decided to do my preservations with Kleinfelds because of the quality of their service. In retrospect, I think I could have found a similar gown for much less money, but was going with Kleinfelds, alleviated a lot of the wedding drama most brides have.

They helped me find my dream dress. A wonderful and magical place.

Kleinfeld's has a great selection of dresses to choose from! More than any other place I looked at. They are a bit pricey, but there is always something for your price range. Book early as getting an appointment is difficult if you need a weekend. Allison was my consultant and did a great job! She found my dress just based on what I told her I was looking for! She was very helpful! I would have given 5 stars, but I was extremely dissatisfied with the sizing! I'm a size 2-4 and they ordered me a 10. I know wedding dresses fun differently, but I asked for a smaller size and the designer fit me and said this was the appropriate size. She was SOOOO wrong! The dress came in and fell off of me and I didn't lose any weight. I spent 2/3 of the price of the dress on alterations, just to get it to fit right. I had my alterations done offsite because the availability of the alterations dept. is bad. If you can afford to take off of work or not have to work and can go on a weekday, you're fine but if you work like most do, good luck getting an appt. to have your alterations done. Overall, dress was beautiful and I received many compliments!!! Very happy!

I went to just about every place in NJ and NY because I thought Kleinfield's was an overpriced gimmick to be avoided. Short and sweet: they had such a great selection and I found my dream dress that was affordable and perfect! Please keep an open mind for anyone who is thinking like I did. I would have saved myself a lot of time by starting here (plus you can ship to NJ to avoid the NY sales tax...score!).

My fiance sent me up to Kleinfeld Bridal Salon because of seeing it on TV. He wanted me to have a special experience picking out my wedding dress.
I gave the consultant the top five dresses that I liked online. On the way back to the dressing room I saw a dress on the rack that I wanted to try on. When I put that dress on I instantly felt beautiful even before she finished tying me into it. Both my family and I loved this dress and thought it was the one. Camille had me try on some of the other style dresses just so that I could be sure that it was the one for me and I wouldn't be second guessing myself later and wishing that I tried something else on.
It happened to be the trunk show for the designer of my dress while I was there. Though it was the end of the day and she was leaving to catch a flight she still came over to say hello and to measure me for the dress herself. That is just one more piece of the day that made it special.
Later when I went back for alterations it was an easy experience. I wanted to have the dress taken in a bit and they didn't complain or tell me it was fine like it was since I technically only needed about 1/2" or so taken in. I wanted more in case I lost some weight the last couple weeks before the wedding.
Overall even though it was a bit pricey, I'm so glad I got my dress from there. I'm still hearing about how beautiful my dress was even a month later.

Such a wonderful experience the whole way through. They are the only ones you should go to when buying a wedding dress! Quality is amazing and they can do whatever you want to make you happy

Rita helped me find my dress, which happened to be the first I tried on! I also had it altered at Kleinfeld and my seamstress Galina was patient and amazing! Wish I could do it all again!

I loved the service that I recieved from Kleinfields. I suggest every bride experience what this company has to offer. They have dress prices suited for everyone.

I have mixed feelings about Kleinfelds. I absolutely LOVED my dress and even got it at somewhat of a discount which was great. The women who helped me were wonderful and truly made me feel like a princess when I came in. They were very attentive and helped me find my dress right away. After saying "yes to the dress" we were escorted to go pay where we faced with one of the coldest people I had ever met. All of the magic from the day was drained since she clearly only cared about getting her money. When asking questions about getting it tailored and delivery, she was incredibly rude and gave us quick, one word answers. I also bought my dress in October and did not receive any update on shipping until I called them in July (my wedding was in September). It finally arrived in mid August. The dress was impeccable but I also received it with a piece missing (a gorgeous belt. There was a lot of back and forth on the matter as they were saying I had not purchased it even though the dress was suppose to come with it. Eventually they rectified the situation and sent the belt at no charge. While some of the customer services people I worked with were great, the overall experience was a roller coaster of good and bad. I would absolutely suggest others to go to Kelinfelds for the overall princess like experience but have a hard time recommending anyone making their final purchase there.

We orginally went to Kleinfeld just for the experience. But after not being happy with anything in my hometown, the trip turned into a mission to "say yes to the dress!" Allison was my consultant and she was just fabulous. She actually picked my gown and my veil. She read my mind. Everyone was so nice and we felt so special. The memories are something my mom and I cherish.

Kleinfeld's service was first class all the way. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive and listened to everything I had to say. The first five dresses they picked were all so beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. They really make you feel special.

Initially I scheduled an appointment at Kleinfeld's for the experience and for fun. Then I met Jenny who was so sweet, funny and sensitive to my concerns regarding dress shopping. I showed Jenny a few things that I liked in magazines and she picked out 5 dresses. The 3rd one was THE ONE! I ended up buying a Alvina Valenta dress on the spot I felt like a beautiful bride for the very first time! My experience after that day was not seamless but it also wasn't terrible. At the end of the day did get everything right and I was a stunning bride. My only complaints were that it was difficult to get someone on the phone or talk to someone when I had questions. I think that Kleinfelds got a little bit too big for themselves with the show. There are always a ton of people in the way and some brides bring way too many friends or family. I lost an extra five lbs right before my wedding and had to have an extra fitting. I had to go in to see my seamstress four times which would have been fine if it wasn't a zoo every time you go in. It's kind of a mad house and as a bride its nice to have the boutique, quiet setting especially closer to the big day. But anyway my seamstress was SO AMAZING that she made it all worth while! Ramona was so complimentary and kind. She really spent time to go over my gown again and again to make sure it fit like a glove. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a wedding dress! I loved my gown and I will always remember Jenny and Ramona.

Yes, they are the largest bridal gown shop in the country... But, there's a reason they're the best! I felt welcome and at ease with my consultant and she helped me pick the gown I had had my eye on. I also happened to pick a date when the designer of the dress I was looking at was having her trunk show so I got 12.5% off my gown! It was a wonderful experience!

My husband bought his tux from the men's department at Kleinfeld. The service there is absolutely wonderful. They understand that this is a special day and we got more attention to make sure he looked his absolute best than at other stores we went to.

After searching far and wide in my home state of CA, I decided to make the trip to Kleinfeld because I knew their selection was unmatched (&my bridesmaids live in NY!). Not only was I striking out finding a style I liked, but I never felt truly BRIDAL at any of the salons. That all changed when I walked into Kleinfeld - bridal dream! We were treated so well and they truly gave us the EXPERIENCE that my mom and bridesmaids will remember forever.
I didn't have a specific dress or style in mind, but I gave my consultant (Patricia) a few guidelines and she returned with a few gorgeous gowns - one of them being THE ONE! I am so glad that I chose to make the trip out - well worth it!
When my dress was ready, they shipped it to me in California. They did an amazing job packaging it - my alterations lady in CA said she had never seen a dress packed so well!
This is definitely one of the choices I do not second-guess when thinking back on my wedding vendors :)

Kleinfeld is THE best in wedding dresses. Their selection is unmatched and they can work with any budget. The salespeople are knowledgable and will help you every step of the way to find the dress of your dreams. Camille was excellent and gave my mother, sisters and I the best experience. After putting a deposit down for one dress, I had reservations and called the next day about a dress they didn't have in store that I had fallen in love with and knew was THE ONE. They requested a sample from the designer, re-fitted me and transferred the deposit without any issues! My seamstress for the fittings was excellent and knew exactly what she was doing...she gave me great suggestions on how to wear the dress, etc. and did a fantastic job. After hearing tons of fitting horror stories, i'm glad i spent the money and used the Kleinfelds team for that aspect. If you want the best wedding dress shopping experience you can get, go to Kleinfeld!

I came to Kleinfeld only having tried on a few wedding dresses before and ended up leaving that day with the dress of my dreams! I had a good idea of what I was looking for, which was helpful. My consultant, Jacqueline, was great. She did not rush me at all even though the appointment was technically supposed to be 2 hours. She could tell what looked right on me and how I felt about each dress from my reaction. When I wanted to find more dresses, she even took me into the back room to look at the supply myself. In the end, she helped me choose a dress that was perfect for my figure, budget, and requests. For the fittings, I worked with Nejla, who was also wonderful. She listened to changes I wanted to make and answered my questions. She fit the dress perfectly to me in 4 fittings. It was absolutely gorgeous and everything I wanted.
