Beautiaweful – automatically based off their reaction...people of color were not welcome. We waited an hour and after waiting they told us that they weren't sure if we had anytime left to try on any of the wedding dresses we pre-selected. So this is just a little note for all those that are not of the same complexion...remember to not look surprised if one of the few helpers in the store help you ...and that's if they "HELP" you. So Let me "HELP" you to identify them..
Designer gowns at incredible prices – Shopping for a wedding dress was as much fun for me as getting a root canal. Endless ugly foofy dresses for bundles of cash. The last two shops I went to, I walked in, did a twirl and walked back out.
I thought there is no way in Havana I'm gonna find a vintage looking dress that's bridal enough to please the mothers for less than a thousand dollars. I was screwed.
And then, thanks to you Yelpers, I found Glamour Closet. I thought they were once worn gowns, but that's not the case they are showroom sample dresses.
The second I walked in I sensed the difference, the selection was amazing. The prices were doable and the staff was very helpful. When I walked out with my gown it all seemed too easy. Really? That's it? It's over? Awesome.
One thing I didn't know and that nobody told me is that when you try on wedding dresses you're in your underwear and bra in front of the sales girl the whole time because they help you get in and out of dresses. So either bring a strapless bra with you or wear one and make sure you have cute skivvies on.
A Bride's Dream – I bought my gown from them in late June. This place sells high end floor samples. Some of the labels you'll see are: Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Kenneth Pool, etc. They hare heavily discounted like anywhere from 50 to 75% off MSRP. The proceeds go to Parkinson's disease research.
They were really sweet and helpful.
The only draw back is that since everything is in floor sample size there is the potential to have to pay a higher alteration fee. But if you really like couture on a budget with no frills and no pressure, this is the place to go as a bride.
