Does anyone know of where we can get gowns? we are not picky about buying vs rental vs custom vs gemachs, just looking for places not too far from the five towns.April 18, 2010 12:49 am at 12:49 am #732659oomisParticipant
Download the Chessed Network Newsletter (I think it is ChessedNetworkNews.com) and they have a list of the gown gemachs. You might also find the information in the Esra Magazine in the back, or Kallah Magazine.April 18, 2010 1:43 am at 1:43 am #732660FunnyBunnyMember
First of all, Mazel Tov!

GARBAGE – Please change your user name. No Jewish boy/girl man/lady ahould call themselves that. All of us are above that surely??April 18, 2010 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #732666smartcookieMember
Esther I was thinking the same thing too. But then I was hoping that maybe the poster means something else by garbage!April 21, 2010 1:52 am at 1:52 am #732667ronrsrMember
by GARBAGE, perhaps he means that he is beyond the pail, or perhaps he is cool and calm and COLLECTED. Anyway, let’s not make any incinerations about the name.April 21, 2010 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #732668PosterMember
I got my wedding gown by Goldy Schick in BP.July 14, 2010 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #732669shev143Member
does anyone know of gemachs for sister of the groom/bride gownsJuly 14, 2010 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #732670blinkyParticipant
shev-maybe try precious elegance im BP, they have nice gowns for extremely low prices. Good luck, and Mazal tov!July 14, 2010 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #732671rtParticipant
does anyone know of a true gemach, meaning that they let you use a gown & don’t charge you anything, everyone we’ve been to charges big bucks, you can just about buy a new inexpensive one for about the same amountJuly 14, 2010 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #732672abxParticipant
First of all, MAZAL TOV!
Secondly, I highly recommend getting a hold of the “Chosson Kallah Guide” available in various locations. It’s very useful for preparing for the Chasunah, has articles, addresses, coupons, and tons more. The Guide should tell you where you can go for gowns and for everything.
Third, as far as free gowns, I don’t know Brooklyn, but Kaila Stern’s Gemach in Lakewood has gorgeous gowns for no charge (there is a suggested donation, though, which is not high at all, and no one feels pressured to give it.)July 14, 2010 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #732673smartcookieMember
I know there’s a satmar gemach in willi. But I don’t know their number or any other info.
I did see some BEAUTIFUL gowns from them on some kallahs.July 15, 2010 1:34 am at 1:34 am #732674oomisParticipant
Mazel tov, mazel tov! There is a gemach in Far Rockaway. I believe Raizy Adler has it in her house. I think she lives on Broadway or Empire (whatever the street is at that point, one is a continuation of the other)November 16, 2010 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #732675Rak Od Pa'amMember
I ams ure that by now ftgirl is happlily married but I am posting this now anyway as there might be others interested.

augenbraun has amazing stuffJanuary 27, 2011 9:23 pm at 9:23 pm #732677doodle jumpParticipant
I did not Raizy Adler has a gown gemach. Very Nice. Beatrice Braun from Lawrence ( I think she lives on Martin Lane ) has beautiful gowns for Mother of the kallah/chosson, and sisters too.
Aliza Safier ( Far Rockaway, on Oak ) has a gown gemach for little girls. (up to preteens I think.) Mazal tov to the happy couple and their families. I love hearing about smachos.January 27, 2011 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #732678s2021Member

Does anyone know about Ehrenfeld’s Gemach in Boro Park? Somehow getting a lot of people telling me to go there. Is the new Satmar Gemach better?
