Next weekend I will be going to the largest, most famous wedding dress boutique in all the country: Kleinfeld. “Why am I going there?” This is the question that keeps rattling in me. Do I really think that I will find my dress-to-be in this New York landmark? No, not really. But I still really want to go.
One reason why I am not entirely “sold” on Kleinfeld is that I am indecisive when it comes to clothes in general. I always think that the next shop might have something better. Now couple this with the fact that these dresses are f-a-n-c-y. It just all makes me, well, squimish.
So far I have only gone to one wedding dress store, Mark Ingram’s The Bridal Atelier. I could have bought any, and every, dress I tried on. They all were perfect dresses. And not only that, each dress out did the last! The only problem was the price (did I mention this place was on Fifth Ave?). Being that I am more of a J-Crew price girl I am always on the search for upscale white dresses that might just do the trick (honestly more than just the trick). A few months ago I found a ridiculously wonderful used wedding dress at the consignment shop. It was a blush pink creamy chiffon with a flowing train for $99. It stopped me in my tracks. It didn’t quite fit, but it sure would be a steal!
When I opened up 100 Layer Cake this evening I instantly thought, “Yeah, like that.” I remember hearing that “saja” means “calm, serene” in Arabic. Saja is what I need. A beautiful dress, danceable, flowing. Saja Bridal’s website is beautiful too and every dress is under $1,000. With a flagship store in NYC, I might just try to swing by on my Kleinfeld’s outting!
What is your favorite dress, Boho Brides?
