I arrived late (because trains) and met with a stoic Amy on the bridal showroom floor of Anthropologie. They had about 20 dresses on display and Amy asked me to point to the ones I liked. I didn’t like any of them really, so I stroked a few fabrics I thought were nice and kind of poked at stuff I didn’t (sequins, crystals, wedding buttons, hoop skirts). I also showed her a picture of my lost gown, hoping it would jog her memory and she would pull it from some secret discontinued gown rack in the Anthropologie basement. She did not, and instead told me to undress and wait for her in a dressing room while she chose my dresses for me. I immediately congratulated myself for wearing undergarments and waited in one of the warmly lit bride boxes until Amy returned with an armful of gowns.

London-based label Self Portrait launched bridal for spring/ summer 2016, and though the collection features several fresh, feminine dresses for a under $1000, that’s not where the options end. The brand’s ready-to-wear line also includes a number of wedding day–worthy dresses, from short, lacy styles to off-the-shoulder maxi dresses. Shop the online boutique or look for the brand at online retailers like Net-A-Porter.

I was tired when I walked into this 5th floor studio in Midtown. The White Gown was empty and dark, I think the staff hadn’t turned the lights on yet. The place felt like a Manhattan apartment, a sad one, stuffed with dresses and rhinestone ribbon belts. I was drowsily welcomed by Portia, who asked me what kind of dress I was looking for. I told her I didn’t like strapless, lace, or glitter, and that something simple would work. Portia led me over to a pair of wide windows facing an office building and told me to undress behind a curtain. She went to pick my dresses for me (a pet peeve of mine at this point) and I waited in a black bathrobe. Portia returned with two lace dresses, one sequined gown, and a strapless dress, all unattractive, none of which I asked for, and none worth their price tag. I tried them on to be polite, but explained they just weren’t my style. Portia didn’t seem to care, which is fine, we were both tired.

In the end?: I didn’t go with any of the dresses here. Nothing took my breath away and while all the gowns were beautiful, I didn’t see mine. Still, BHLDN is a perfect option for the bride on a budget or any bride who wants a gorgeous dress for a steal. This was my first experience wedding dress shopping and where I learned that A. it’s good to wear underwear sometimes and B. most of the time, consultants don’t let you pick the dresses you want to try on. I miss Amy and would like to hang out with her outside of BHLDN, maybe in a park for iced coffees or like, a Bravo night in, my place or hers, it really doesn’t matter. Her place is probably cleaner.

Okay, I like Reformation and their low-impact, highly Instagrammable Easy Ups for it-girls. And guess what?! They have a very small bridal line! Reformation isn’t exactly “so me” because I’m definitely poor and unstylish, but their wedding dresses are in the same price range as BHLDN, which is great. On the internet, Reformation’s wedding gowns are beautiful. Long, chic, painted on the models like a nuptial sealant, these garments are on-trend, like you could wear them to a hide-and-seek garden party in Bushwick and not get side-eye from the other guests.

Much to the delight of bohemian brides everywhere, Free People launched wedding dresses last year. The bridal collection has all the vintage-inspired lace, loose-fitting boho gowns, and alternative options like jumpsuits you’d expect from the label (with several new pieces released just a few weeks ago), but the prices hit a surprising range — starting at $375 for a tiered maxi dress.

My experience at Adrienne’s was non-existent. The store looked close to my apartment on Google Maps, so I called and made an appointment on a whim. When I arrived, I was surprised at how dingy Adrienne’s looked from the outside. Along with the tinted windows that made the store look like an escape vehicle, there were sale bins and racks of dirty bridesmaids and wedding dresses outside on the street.

Based in New York, designer Yoo Lee does softly romantic styles in traditional silhouettes, with a selection of dresses priced around $950. Each has elegantly modern design details, like a racerback on a chiffon dress with a plunging front.

In the end?: I didn’t like this place or what they had to offer. Portia was clearly out of it. I left The White Gown discouraged and a little put off. At The White Gown, I learned I needed coffee and that I should figure out a way to talk about what I wanted in a wedding dress, because somehow, it was getting lost in translation.
