Re: Kleinfelds QuestionWhen you go there, the first thing they ask you is your budget. I think they have gowns anywhere form $1000-$10,000

Re: Kleinfelds QuestionIf you are looking to go on a weekend, it might take a while for an appointment, but you can always call, and maybe get in on someone elses cancellation. Check out when they are having certain trunk shows, because that might add to the wait. I was lucky enough to call on a wednesday to get an appointment for the Amsale trunk show that Saturday. People are good with canceling because they take your credit card number when you make an appointment and if you don't show up they charge you $50. SO make sure you can make the appointment!! But try for the date you want because you never know. Just tell them the budget and they will work with that. I also brought pictures along to give them an idea and that was helpful because then they knew what to look for.

Re: Kleinfelds QuestionThey have a large selection and different prices, depending on the designer and style.

Re: Kleinfelds Questionmy advice:
1. try to get the first appointment (i had one and STILL had to wait).
2. if you make an appointment, show up or give yourself enough time to cancel as they will charge you.
3. try to have an idea of what you like (or think you like), call them up beforehand to make sure they have it.
4. don't give them your budget, say you are undecided and just looking for information.
5. shop around and go back only if they can match or do better than whatever other quotes you receive.

Re: Kleinfelds QuestionI got my dress there at a sample sale. I made an appt, got there very late, and they were so nice about it. They showed my right to the fitting room. I didn't have to wait or anything. They do take your credit card number and if you miss your appt, they charge you $50. Be open with your sales person, they are very helpful there. They'll help you find a dress that is the most flattering for your shape. I went in with one idea of what I wanted, and walked out with a completely different dress. Good luck.

Re: Kleinfelds QuestionI haven;t started gown shopping yet, but I will definitely go to Kleinfeld as probably my first and only stop. My sister got her dress there for her May '03 wedding.
Even if you don't specify a budget, they do seem to size you up and bring you what they think is in your price range.
They really know their gowns, you can say you want to see dresses with scoop necks and low backs, or show thama picture or two and they'll be back with several dresses you'll really like.
The main reason i'd definitely go to Kleinfeld is that they take impeccable care of the gowns, unlike all of the other places we looked where the gowns looked yellow and handled.
Their alterations are to die for. they really did such an excellent job, and there is a cap on how much alterations can cost, and you can have as many fittings as you want.
They are comparable in price to other salons for the same dress. My sister's Eve of Milady dress priced exactly the same other places, $100 less at one place, and $500 more at another. Even for the extra $100, we didn't argue, we thought Kleinfeld was way worth it.

Re: Kleinfelds QuestionIf you're felxible and can go on a weekday, you shoudn't have to wait long for an appointment. I've been there twice on Fridays and made my appointments the week-of. I think you would probably get even better service and less waiting if you were able to do a week day. I found the salewoman very helpful and she showed me dresses within my budget. They charge a mandatory $400 for alterations, but you can go for as many fittings as you would like. The gown I bought was only $1200.
