Please see these threads on this site for suggestions:
There may be other threads on this site that can help. go to Google and type “Gown Gemach site:http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom” varbatim but without the quotes.
Also try “gown gemach new york”, “gown gemach brooklyn”, etc.
Good luck, and Mazel tov.September 18, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am #811268

It’s not a gemach, but it might help, and it might be affordable…
694 Central Avenue, Cedarhurst, NY
Mon, Tue, Thurs 11-5
(otherwise by appointment)
they rent gowns for:
mother of the bride or groom
sister of the bride or groom
and jewelry and accessories
I just saw this advertisement tonight in The Jewish Home magazine (five towns). Good timing!!!
Hope it helps!September 18, 2011 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #811277
There is also Bridal Secrets in Cedarhurst. I don’t think it’s a gemach but she might be reasonbale. I don’t know. But they are really really helpful there!!!September 19, 2011 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #811278
what about brides gowns?September 19, 2011 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #811279
adorable, bridal secrets in Cedarhurst also sells bridal gowns. I do not know prices but I do know some people who have said that it was cheaper to buy from them then to go to a gemach or rent one. It might be worth checking out. Mazel tov and hope all the wedding plans go smoothly!!September 19, 2011 9:02 pm at 9:02 pm #811280
thank you! i would rather not spend money on a gown and use that for things that Ill have like a wig or things like that.September 19, 2011 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #811281
Most gemachs charge too, no? I’ve heard that their are gemachs that are more expensive than rentals or buying but could be wrong about that…. either way, I def hear your point!
Gluck!September 19, 2011 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm #811282
i can use that. thanksSeptember 20, 2011 2:25 pm at 2:25 pm #811283
bought a stunning gown last night!!!!!!!!!!!!September 20, 2011 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #811284
i went to a few gemachs and they range between 75 and 200 dollars plus alterations and cleaning. still a better bargain than renting or buyingSeptember 20, 2011 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #811285bh18Participant
