“felt very comfortable with the whole experience, and would definitely recommend it to any bride with a decent dress budget.”
“Great selection, great service”
“I really loved the city and want to go back) I would recommend this store to anyone and everyone and wish you luck in finding your dress.”
“can't say enough about Kleinefleds and the wonderful service.”
“All the consultants always wanting to see what every bride looks like when they walk out into the big room to look in that huge mirror.”
“She was not phazed in the least and was determined to help me find the perfect dress in 90 minutes - which I did.”
I was extremely nervous about going to
kleinfeld's for my wedding dress as I had only bad experiences going with friends to pick out their dresses. However, I had a very different experience because of my bridal consultant Christiane Boyiakis
Christiane made the experience amazing as she really listened to what I was looking for in a wedding dress. She picked out dress after dress of exactly the style of I liked and I couldn't decide which dress was better!!
I feel this is the type of place that can be amazing or horrible based on the person you work with. My recommendation is if you want to go to kleinfeld's, ask for Christiane!
I just got engaged and I was really excited to pick out my dress. I decided to go to Kleinfeld’s to check out what they have since they supposedly have such a large selection, but I honestly didn't get to see much even if they did. My dress consultant, Erika Molina, was absolutely horrible she was not only rude, but she had horrible taste and she kept on judging me because I didn't want to try on the ugliest dresses I had ever seen. I told her I wanted to get a second dress and that it had to be very light and I really wanted something in chiffon, especially since I was going to trash the dress inside the beach. So after 5 mins of her looking at me in total shock and telling me that I shouldn't it she finally decided to do her job and get me some more ugly dress that weren't chiffon and were really heavy. Not only will I never go back there, I would actually rather spend more on a dress somewhere else then ever spend one dime at Kleinfeld’s. I was so disappointed and really shocked, I was in customer service for over 5 years and I would never treat a costumer the way she treated me. If you do decide to go I warn you not to get her as consultant.
bought a Jim Hjelm gown from a retailer who had been in business for over 40 years, Kleinfelds. We paid thousands of dollars for a "designer" dress as well as an alteration fee for their tailoring expertise. We expected first quality designer item and ended up with a dress whose zipper broke 30 seconds after putting on the dress.
I had my last fitting where the seamstress had a hard time zippering the dress. I asked her if there was an issue with the zipper and she said no - assuring us that every thing is perfect and that since the dress is altered to be fitted to the body it was just hard for her to maneuver the zipper since it was a small piece.
We picked up the dress which was stuffed with tissue paper and that's how it was transported for the wedding ceremony. The dress was not touched until the time it was put on to where my nightmare watching the zipper come apart began. An hour late to the church and $300 later, I was sewed into my dress by a local cleaners, but cleary could see the uneveness and damage, not to mention the embarassment of showing up an hour late to the church!
We paid for alterations at Kleinfelds and expected 1st quality alterations by experienced staff - they were the experts on whom we relied and to whom we paid for their services. I as a consumer expected the dress to be first quality and usable for the occasion for which it was bought. I did not expect trauma on a day which should have been care free and to hassle in locating a tailor to come and sew me into my dress.
Kleinfelds offered to pick up the dress, reimburse us for the tailor and to preserve it for me. FOR WHAT?? I need it on my wedding day, not after!! That is not acceptable. We did not get the 1st quality product we paid for and this was a one time only dress, what will I do with it now??!?
I am shocked at their lack of response and attitude towards this and the ruining of a day which should have been perfect. I contacted them and it takes them days if not weeks to call me back. I leave messages, nothing.
I am now going through my credit card for a full refund. This place is a joke....they only care about their show and the "stars" that work there now....if you want true customer service you are better off with a smaller retailer that will provide you with true customer service and not the run around.
Say "NO" and don't go!!!!.
YOUR overall rating system in inaccurate!
Out of 90 reviews, over 33% are very negative and if you weight the "1" scores, this place should get an overall score of ....maybe 3 stars most.
TV fame has gone to their heads. These "celeb-u-brats" think they should walk the red carpet.
I walked in and I thought I was at a funeral home. Everyone in black, not a smile, I was looking for the casket.
I asked 3 times to see my favorite designer and it WAS NOT PARNOVIAS yet they kept on bringing me these down market type gowns hyping them as if they were getting extra money to sell them, or maybe they own the company, i don't know.
Klienfeld is "Klien-Fall" since they have gotten a bigger head than a bigger heart. And stop with the damn sale rack in the back hall of the store. That's where I found the casket. Dead wedding gowns......Going to find another bridal shop. Any suggestions girlfriends?
Do they even read these reviews? Obviously not.
Kleinfeld's was Incredible!!!!!!!.
Wow, what an experience! I had an appointment on 02/20/12 for their sample sale. I was met by Erika who right from the start was very sweet and caring. She asked me about my big day, what I was looking for and immediately got to business. I did not feel rushed at all. I showed her my top 5 and she instructed me and my girls to go check out the dresses either on the sale rack or anywhere else while she tried to find the dresses I brought with me. We looked for a few minutes and she had us go back to the dressing room.
I tried on a variety of dresses to make sure I was not missing out on any type of design or color. There were 2 I really liked, and one that I liked only the top part. So, she went out and found a dress that had every element of the dresses that I loved. She had asked my budget which I said was $2000 and brought in a dress that was slightly over at $2500, as soon as I put on the dress I knew it was the one. It was stunning and was everything I had hoped for. She was so excited when I told her I wanted it, she gave me a big hug.
I was as skeptical about this place as anyone else due to some shaky reviews about rude staff or snobby comments about budgets being too low. But I have to say I had an amazing experience and I can thank Erika for that. I can't wait to get my dress in!!!
Full Figured Women....DON"T.
To all full figured women,
Please do not go to Kleinfeld thinking they have fashion forward dresses in larger sizes. I am a 16/18 and was treated like a second class citizen. I wanted a fashion forward dress in a material other than satin. Camille brought in two dresses and then sent me to a small back room to look through the plus sized dresses. The dresses were old fashioned and dowdy. The dresses were also so worn that part were fraying and I was told to use my imagination. The total appointment lasted 20 minutes. Now for the good news; full figured brides need to go to Curvaceous Couture in Columbia MD. A store made for the curvier bride. You are treated great! I tried on about 15-18 dresses most of which were actually too big for me and they have all the newest styles. Fly into Baltimore and Columbia is right around the corner.
Do not believe the HYPE about KLEINFELD, you will be disappointed.
Kleinfeld's has a terrific selection so go there to try on dresses and see what you want BUT DO NOT BUY THAT DAY!! They will tell you, you have to buy that day or you won't get your dress in on time but don't fall for it. I had two other appts scheduled so I didn't buy. Thank goodness!! I found the same dress, same designer for over $1000 less on a $3300 (K's price) dress. I also found out that the dress takes 4 months not 6, like I was told there. The markup on wedding dresses varies and is huge. Google it.
If you can't find your dress elsewhere, just make another appt there.
Say NO to the dress FROM KLEINFELD !!!. It is unfortunate that I find myself having to write this commentary regarding a very unpleasant trip to Kleinfeld this past Sunday ( October 30, 2011) in search for the perfect wedding dress. Having been a fan of the show Say Yes to the Dress for a while and having heard stories of wonderful and memorable experiences from my friends who shopped at the store for their wedding gowns, I was looking forward to the
Consultant Ruined Our Visit. We came to Kleinfeld for our friend
Terrible experience!!!! think many times.
It was a terrible experience, I was totally unhappy, I spend 10-12 times to try my bridal dress and the final result is totally not what I want to. My dress price is 5,500 $ and you can understand my feelings, I spend so many times travelling to the dressing, re doing, taking off from my work. The promised me 3 times fitting, but I did 10-12, i do not even remember, they changed it every time and promised me that soon everything will be ok, director Nitsa, sad that on my wedding day I will be ok, but it was not true, I was terrible at my wedding day, but I do not had any other dress. I want to say that I am standard size women, not oversize, nothing extraordinary!
If you decided to go to that bridal, think for 1,000,000,000 times. Do you need the same terrible experience as I'm? The are totally unprofessional and easy make bridal to cry!
