Searching for a Bridal Gown

It's quite a major task to prepare a wedding. There is need for a Chuppah, a hall, to draw up a guest list, decide on catering, organize flowers. The list goes on. For one happy new Kallah, first on her list has been searching for the right bridal gown. I feel honoured that ours was the first Bridal Gown Gemach that she came to. Our discussion made me realize how much we need our full centre. In the meantime, we offered all that we could and it was a wonderful feeling to keep on hearing, "Oh how beautiful!" or "I LOVE this one!"

As things turn out, some of the dresses that our Kallah loved were not the right size for her. We would love to have the funds to move our bridal gowns to larger space and to have more variety of gowns and other items such as bridal veils. But, in the meantime, we had fun selecting, trying on and fitting bridal gowns and helping the Kallah to decide what style she is looking for.

It is not often that one gets to see a young lady dressed in a bridal gown looking at other bridal gowns. Such a fun, having service to be involved in.

If you are a Kallah in Israel, do be in touch to visit our Bridal Gown Gemach, located in Jerusalem. For those renting a bridal gown during the month of November, you have the potential to receive a gift towards your new home. Gifts are limited while there is stock so hurry along to rent your bridal gown.

New Kallah visits our Bridal Gown Gemach

We had a fun time a few days ago with a Kallah in our Bridal Gown Gemach. Out of the 59 dresses that we currently have available, she found at least 6-8 to try on and out of those probably 3 or 4 that she really liked. It was so interesting to see her enjoyment with totally different styles. It was also very satisfying to see that the bridal gowns look really good on an actual bride.

Each dress had a need for certain alterations, mostly as they are long and our Kallah was short. While our Kallah is deciding which style she prefers we'd like to invite other Kallot to come and visit our Bridal Gown Gemach. There is a selection of some very different gowns, all of them modest.

For those who have a busy schedule, you can book a package with us, rent your bridal gown and while you are at it, book your Chatan and Kallah lessons and have a relaxing session or two as well. Remember to let your friends know to come in and enjoy.

We look forward to welcoming you into our Bridal Gown Gemach.
