How far would you travel for your wedding gown?

With today's cheap air fares, brides are traveling much further distances to get their wedding gowns. Every day in our salon we have brides that fly in from Ireland, England, Australia, even Dubai. One of the most touching stories I've come across was a group from Canada that came into our salon. Apparently, Canadians LOVE to watch our show, "Say Yes To The Dress", and for Christmas, the groom purchased air plane tickets for the bride, her mother, and her maid of honor to fly to New York for a weekend shopping trip at Kleinfeld. How far have you traveled to shop at Kleinfeld? Has your groom surprised you with a secret shopping trip for your gown?

I'm from Toronto and I 100% agree that Canadians LOVE watching soon-to-be brides shop for their dream dress at Kleinfeld's! I have seen every episode and after my fiance recently saw a Greek woman try on the beautiful Pnina Tornai dress (oversized with flowers and a price tag of 24,000) he is determined to get my wedding dress from your shop. Our first wedding will be in Albania in 2 years, and i plan on coming to New York sometime next summer (between June & September) to purchase a dress, I am a very young future bride with an unlimited budget (prefer my dress to sit above $10,000 & around $20,000) and I am head over heels in love with a 2009 Pnina Tornai dress you hold. Randy you are a wedding dress genius and I would travel all the way to Isreal for Pnina Tornai if she wasn't at Kleinfeld's. I hope to see you next year Randy!

I recently traveled 250 miles to get the dress of my dreams, and it was worth the ride. i bought a Pnina Tornia gown, when I first laid eyes on it I knew that I had to have it. So lucky for me I didnt have to travel far, but i would have just to be at kleinfelds.The staff is very helpful, and they make you feel welcomed. I look forward to going back to pick up my dress and seeing you guys again Thanks for everything!
