I cant say enough great things about the place I got my wedding dress from. Julius Bridal is run by Julius and his wife and they were sooo nice to work with. I initially found out about them from my BF, Jackie. She had a friend who ordered her wedding dress online from them. When I went on the website, I noticed they had tons of dresses that were really reasonably priced but I had already put a deposit down on a dress I "thought" I liked alot. Once I looked further on the site, I realized they had a physical location in Long Island, NY. They are located inside of a full service bridal center and their showroom is beautiful! There was one dress I saw online that I was particularly in love with so that was the first one I tried on... and there was no need to try on anything else after that! I LOVED LOVED LOVED it!
And that is definitely the feeling a bride should have when choosing a gown. The first dress I put a deposit on... I liked but definitely didnt really love it. Sooo needless to say, I was so happy that I found my dream dress!
At the time I purchased it, it was only $799 !!!!!!!!!
Not to mention, the price even included alterations!
Here is a pic of the front and back of my dress from the website.
FYI: This dress is now $1399 (so I guess it went up shortly after I purchased mine) Julius did tell me this is a very popular dress.
Also, if you want to design your own dress, you can send them the sketches and they will make it for you! I would definitely recommend Julius Bridal if you are looking for a wedding gown. Im telling you, they are super great to work with. And dont be thrown off by the website. Its pretty basic, nothing over the top. But they have a large variety and very reasonable prices.
