The place is quiet, a little dark (natural lighting from the large windows) and the staff is very quiet and sweet. I found what I thought was my dream dress here. The gown are very gorgeous. Romantic and princessy. We went for my nephew

I came for a weekend dress shopping to NY, feeling frustrated with the little choice from DC. Thus I managed to go to 10 shops and try about 60 dresses. I am ranking B&B the highest of all the stores that I visited based on the following

I found out about Birnbaum & Bullock from a Bridal magazine. It was the third and last place I went. The moment you enter the studio you feel at ease. Robert and Steven have an amazing selection of dresses at every price point. Some

OMG, I don't have enough good words to say about Robert Bullock. He's absolutely fantastic. This will take a while so bear with me. My sister and I went to see Robert in his stunning gallery on a rainy NY afternoon. I was so weary of

My daughter was married this past July and chose one of Birnbaum and Bullock's magnificent gowns for her wedding dress. The whole experience from beginning to end was a pure delight and such a marked contrast to so many of the other

I went to Birnbaum & Bullock after being unimpressed with at least five other bridal salons in Manhattan. I wanted a fresh, modern gown - something I've never seen before - but I couldn't fathom spending a small fortune on a gown. I also did not want to be pushed into making a decision this big on the spot, which I had experienced at some of the larger salons in the city.

Robert Bullock, one of the nicest and talented men I've met, found the perfect dress for me, just by really listening to me and, as a designer, knowing what would work on my figure. Robert Bullock worked with me personally every step of the way, from every fitting, alteration and customization I asked him to make. No request was too large. He made sure the dress fit me perfectly, everywhere. His attention to detail is stunning. He takes his time and does it right.

On my wedding day, I was told by my wedding officiant that my dress was probably the nicest wedding dress she had ever seen. One of my friends asked me if the dress was Vera Wang and assumed it was the price of a small car. Her mouth dropped when I told her the price. The dresses were extremely reasonably priced for the suberb quality and the personal attention that came with them. To work personally with a Manhattan designer is rare and every woman should have that experience when purchasing a wedding dress.

Even before I got engaged, I had an idea of what I wanted to wear for my wedding. I didn't know much outside of the world of big designer gowns. When I got engaged and began thinking about my search for the perfect dress, I read reviews about Birnbaum & Bullock and thought it sounded so different from the experiences I had heard about from friends and seen on "Say Yes to the Dress" that I decided to make an appointment there. I am so glad that I did!

From the moment Robert Bullock introduced himself to me in his beautiful bridal studio, I knew I made a good decision in coming here. I was shopping with my mom, future mother in law, maid of honor, and two of my bridesmaids. They were all so impressed with the space right away!

I had such a great experience from start to finish. Robert asked me all the right questions and pulled dresses that really flattered my figure. I loved every dress that Robert put me in but when I put on "the one" I knew it, Robert knew it, and my shopping entourage knew it. Robert kept mentioning how I smiled the whole time I was in that dress. I felt like I was the only bride in the world when I was there working one-on-one with Robert.

I had told Robert my budget in the beginning and when I had decided on my dress and he told me that it was half of my budget, I was so happy that I was truly listened to. I think Birnbaum & Bullock is an experience every bride deserves. I would highly recommend making a stop there on your search for the perfect dress!

Birnbaum & Bullock were by far my favorite wedding vendor and exceeded my expectations in every way. Like other reviewers, I bought my dress at one of their sample sales and it was the first dress I tried on. It is a beautiful silk dress with a lace overlay in a classic yet modern (not old fashioned) style. When I bought my dress, I weighed 30 pounds more than when I was actually fitted (over a year later) but Steven worked miracles with the dress. It was taken apart and at each fitting, Steven worked one layer at a time (first the silk slip, then the lace overlay, then the cap sleeves, etc.). My favorite part of the Birnbaum & Bullock experience was being fitted directly by the dress designers and receiving their advice and personal attention -- even though the dress had been a sample and I didn't pay what many others might pay for a designer dress. At the fittings, I was the only person there and it was a wonderfully, unstressful experience. My dress came out amazing and I couldn't have been happier. I feel very lucky to live in NYC and have access to such amazing boutique designers.

Finally, Steven even went out of his way to help me fix my headpiece (even though I did not buy it at B&B) which kept slipping off my head before he fixed it! Thank you!!!

I was at the point of pulling my hair out when I stumbled upon the Birhbaum & Bullock salon on W25th ... my guardian angel must have been guiding me there!!! I had visited all of NYC's best (or so they say) bridal salons and I was totally fed up with pushy sales people and mediocre dresses! My whole experience with Robert Bullock and the team was nothing short of wonderful. From the moment I made my first appointment to the moment I walked away with my dress I was treated like royalty and really made to feel very special! Unfortunately, there was a small hiccup with my dress when I arrived for my first fitting ... (these things do happen to the best of us!) However, before any panic could even set in, Robert took complete control and the issue was resolved quickly and succesfully. I had my brand new dress in a matter of days and I could not be happier with the outcome. I am testiment to the fact that even if the worst happens, you will be in safe hands! It is truly rare to find this level of customer service in this city and I applaud the efforts and dedication of Robert and Steven for keeping their "bridal experience" in a class of it's own! The gowns are magnificent and you can definately find a gem, no matter what your budget might be. I highly recommend this salon and I will certainly be introducing my friends and any future brides that I meet to the Birnbaum & Bullock team! Thank you Robert!!! You are SO Fabulous!!!

Kleinfelds was my first stop and they treated me like dirt. When I heard about the B&B sample sale, I for sure thought they would be worse! My sister forced me to go and I went there ready for a fight. To my surprise, both Steven & Robert along with their support staff treated me with such professionalism and class. The studio itself feels so glamorous without being stuffy. After trying several dresses, Robert hand picked a dress he thought would be best for me. I am 5ft, 100lbs at a sample sale where everything was meant for a larger/taller crowd. Within seconds he pinned me up and like magic, my wedding dress was found! My dress had lace & beadwork; it was stunning. I purchased the matching veil which completed my look? I felt & looked amazing!

When I got engaged I was terrified of purchasing a wedding dress. I envisioned the horror of being Moby Dick like proportions enshrined in white while guests laid in wait to harpoon me. Scary to say the least.
But now, married not quite a week, I can say I looked beautiful and didn't have a single a whale or marshmallow moment my entire wedding day.

As a non skinny bride to be I began my search as many plus sized girls do, feeling disheartened and devoid of many choices. I went to a few salons and tried on their dresses but everything looked so over the top and nothing like me. Plus, since I'm allergic to Polyester I was breaking out in hives just trying some of these monsterous dresses on!

However, while flipping through "Elegant Bride" I found my saving grace. An ad for Birnbaum & Bullock, boasting custom sizing and all silk dresses. I quickly did a search for them and found out they were having a trunk sale the next weekend in their salon on W 25th. A call was placed, an appointment was made, a quick train ride on the LIRR, and a wedding was saved.

Meeting with Steven Birnbaum was one of the truly great moments of the whole wedding process. He was so sweet and patient and helped me visualize how the dresses could be adjusted for my voluptuous but short frame. He was so understanding and genuine with me I knew he was "the one." The one designer to work with and create my gown. With a toast of Champagne shared between my mom, my sister, Steven Birnbaum & Robert Bullock and myself, the deal was struck and the dress was purchased.

Steven Birnbuam was with me the whole process and even customized the top of the dress for me so that I could wear a regular bra . He made the singularly most beautiful dress I have ever seen and the realization that this beautiful dress was mine was almost more than I could bear.

I felt so incredibly beautiful on my wedding day (not always an easy feat for me) and I was greeted with constant praise of my dress. Everyone was awed by it.
It was so comforable and fit me like it was made for me (because after about 6 fittings - it was!) I didn't want to take it off. I wore it from 9:30 am until 11:30 pm and could have slept in it. I loved/love it so much.

As for the price - I don't have a lot of money. I didn't have a huge budget but I would gladly have spent even more on my beautiful gown. Birnbaum & Bullock may not be the cheapest but they don't work with the cheapest either. Every detail, every fabric is the best and they don't charge you through the nose for it.

All in all, I had an amazing experience and couldn't be happier with the outcome. I wish I could thank them every day for making me feel like the blushing bride I'd always dreamed of one day becoming. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Steven & Robert. You are both artisans and deserve tremendous success.

There are SO. MANY. places to shop for wedding dresses in New York that it can be a bit overwhelming, even for a skilled shopper such as myself. I searched high and low---literally, from Vera to Watters---and, frustratingly, couldn't find what I was looking for, despite the fact that I thought my wish-list was pretty reasonable:

I wanted something that was going to make jaws drop, but I didn't want it to be overtly sexy. I wanted it to be somewhat modern and fashion-y (as opposed to an uber-traditional bride-y look), but I didn't look back on myself in 5 years as a fashion victim on the big day. I didn't want to spend an obscene amount of money (what can I say, I'm a practical girl), but I didn't want something run-of-the-mill made of cheesy fabrics in China. I wanted to look like ME, just in a wedding dress.

TOTALLY reasonable, no??

Anyway, after nearly giving up, I visited Birnbaum & Bullock and fell in LOVE. These guys make some ahhhmazing dresses, and what's so cool is you work with them directly---no "sales associate at your service!" business here. Makes perfect sense, because who knows their dresses better than they do?

Robert listened to what I was looking for, added in his suggestions based on what he thought would work, we had some fun playing dress up and just like that, I found the dress. It's exactly, exactly what I was looking for, and I'm so excited at the thought of wearing it.

Dresses range from the ultra-reasonable (under $2k) to the high-end (I think they max out around $10k), but they're all beautiful---the less expensive dresses didn't FEEL cheap, which is not always the case.

The very next friend of mine to get engaged is getting dragged to B&B by yours truly...

I wanted to be sure to write to tell any bride-to-be, who would like to wear a beautifully designed and crafted dress, work with a courteous, kind, professional, knowledgeable staff, and have an overall pleasant experience, without stress, drama or any unpredictability, please do not complete your wedding dress shopping without an appointment with Birnbaum and Bullock. Planning a wedding is never easy and to compound some of the difficulty, I am a bride that is completing medical school, applying for residency (as is my fiance) and our wedding is on the west coast! The immediate calm atmosphere of the showroom and the full attention of Mr. Bullock, instantly put me at ease. I felt relaxed and really listened to as I tried to explain what I was interested in, as a person who does not know the "lingo" of fabrics, designs and cuts. Mr. Bullock was attentive, thoughtful and supportive. He really conveyed an understanding of how important this decision was for me and, really, for every bride and what a special occassion it is to be shopping for your wedding dress. Birnbaum and Bullock was the first place I went and after a few other pushy, crowded, stressful experiences, I practically ran back to Birnbaum and Bullock! I chose the Parker, the fourth dress I ever tried on and I have absolutely no regrets and better yet, I had an experience that will be a part of my cherished wedding memories!!!

I did A LOT of wedding dress shopping and was having trouble finding a dress that felt just right, until I went to Birnbaum & Bullock. I tried on 6 dresses and the first four all looked amazing and felt like they were made for me (and I do not have anywhere near a perfect body). They were also very patient with me and answered all of my questions, as I am, frankly, a high-maintenance shopper. I came back a second time to look at the dress I liked most again, and I never felt pressured at all. Robert Bullock, the designer of the dress I chose, helped me every time I came into the showroom and even indulged my family's prolonged photo session and incessant questions. Even though I picked one of their less expensive styles (which was incredibly reasonably priced), when I was in their showroom, I felt like I was the only bride in the world. I can't say enough about this place - they made my wedding dress shopping experience one of the highlights of the wedding planning process.

I can't describe what a pleasure it was to deal directly with Robert Bullock! As soon as I walked into their amazing loft/studio, Robert looked at me and knew which of his dresses would work for me. He was right ! His sample dress fit me beautifully and it felt so light and wonderful on.
Robert responded to all my e mails immediately and worked with me to get my wedding dress to fit perfectly. And it did! It was beautiful ! The personal service and care shown by Robert Bullock made the whole wedding dress experience wonderful !

Robert and Steven are the most amazing people who make the most beautiful dresses a bride can ask for. They were accommodating to my budget and my specific requests, which a bride can't get enough of. They have a variety of designs, which can be also altered to the brides taste and wishes. Book an appointment to see them and you'll never regret it. You'll fall in love with the beautiful dresses and the designers!
P.S. The showroom is quite cute that you'll want to stay there forever!

After having spent an enormous amount of time in vain going through big bridal stores and designer boutiques in Manhattan, my search for a perfect wedding gown led me to the stylish attelier of Birnbaum & Bullock.

I was searching for an elegant, sophisticated yet simple gown that I would wear to our church wedding ceremony followed by a reception at a sleek, upscale Manhattan restaurant.

The process of working with Robert Bullock and Steven Birnbaum was like a collaboration with two close friends who were entrusted with something they are masterful at. Robert, one of the designers with whom I initially met only eight weeks before the wedding date, immediately understood what I needed and presented me with seven possible choices. Even though I was running out of time (several other stores would not work with me on such a tight schedule), Robert and Steven were patient, focused and gave honest feedback aiming solely at helping me select the dress in which I would look great, in which I would be comfortable and which I would wear effortlesly. They took care of every aspect of the gown with no worries. Each personalized appointment gave us plenty of time for tryouts. At my last appointment, my gown looked and felt amazing. I walked down the isle in a perfect wedding dress whose superb craftsmanship could not be but noticed by everyone present.

Every sophisticated bride??s wedding gown should be exquisite, it should be flawless. It should be by Birnbaum and Bullock!

After having spent an enormous amount of time in vain going through big bridal stores and designer boutiques in Manhattan, my search for a perfect wedding gown led me to the stylish attelier of Birnbaum & Bullock.

I was searching for an elegant, sophisticated yet simple gown that I would wear to our church wedding ceremony followed by a reception at a sleek, upscale Manhattan restaurant.

The process of working with Robert Bullock and Steven Birnbaum was like a collaboration with two close friends who were entrusted with something they are masterful at. Robert, one of the designers with whom I initially met only eight weeks before the wedding date, immediately understood what I needed and presented me with seven possible choices. Even though I was running out of time (several other stores would not work with me on such a tight schedule), Robert and Steven were patient, focused and gave honest feedback aiming solely at helping me select the dress in which I would look great, in which I would be comfortable and which I would wear effortlesly. They took care of every aspect of the gown with no worries. Each personalized appointment gave us plenty of time for tryouts. At my last appointment, my gown looked and felt amazing. I walked down the isle in a perfect wedding dress whose superb craftsmanship could not be but noticed by everyone present.

I went to A LOT of bridal dress shops (at least 6) and no experience came even close to my experience at Birnbaum & Bullock.

Firstly, they have gorgeous dresses that are timeless yet unique. The dresses are made from really beautiful fabrics (which was something I was picky about & really disappointed with at other shops). Also, they have a wide variety of dresses for every bride's unique style & shape. I'm short & curvy and found a few dresses there that made me feel like a movie star.

Secondly, you won't getter better customer service ANYWHERE (don't even get me started on the nightmare at Kleinfelds!). I had my appointments with Robert Bullock, one of the designers himself, and other than being really nice, he was very honest in choosing styles that looked good on me. Plus, he showed me dresses all that were in my budget and below. I was not pressured to by a dress at all and was treated like a fabulous bride. This is not the norm at other bridal dress shops in Manhattan.

Thirdly, for the budget conscious bride, their dresses range greatly in price so any bride could find something great there. I wasn't sure I would find something I loved in my budget (under 2K) and I was really pleasantly surprised with the quality for the prices and the variety.

I bought my dress from Birnbaum & Bullock and I absolutely love everything about it and can't wait to wear it on my big day. If you are wedding dress shopping, you MUST check out Birnbaum & Bullock!

Pros: Gorgeous Dresses, Top Quality & Reasonable, Fabulous Service

Cons: None!

I purchased two gowns from a sample sale at their showroom. They were very helpful, and the gowns were amazing. Beautiful craftmanship and attention to detail. They also cleaned my gowns prior to the wedding, and the service was impeccable. Highly recommend them to any bride.

Pros: Beautiful Fabrics, Unique Design

Birnbaum and Bullock was a last minute addition to my wedding dress search. I had already visited about 8 other dress shops, ranging from small high end boutiques to big standards like Kleinfelds and Saks. None of the experiences compared to the personal attention I got at B&B. From the moment I stepped in the door, Robert (one of the 2 designers who not only design the dresses, but do the consultations) was welcoming to my friends and family. Although he brought in almost 10 dresses for me to try on, he grabbed 1 and said "I have a feeling this one will look great on you" -- and what do you know, he was right! It's a totally different experience having a consultation with a designer vs. a salesperson. Not only are their dresses stunning, there's a wide price range, they're warm, have incredibly fast follow up (emailed the very next day to confirm the 1st dress fitting appointment), and made my decision easy. Check them out!

I found my dress at a B & B sample sale. The dress was perfect, exquisitely made, beautiful fabric, a simple but elegant style. The designers spent time with each person at the sample sale. They did the alterations for me perfectly, helped me figure out what veil style went best with the dress and cleaned the dress after the wedding for much less than what I would have been charged elsewhere. The best deal anyone could find in NYC.

What made my experience at Birnbaum & Bullock 'special'? Everything!!!
From the way they only see one bride at a time, the amount of respect they (naturally) give their clients, to the fact that they don??t even use clamps on you/the dresses that you try on? instead, they actually take the time to literally & snuggly pin you into each dress ?? so that you can really see how the dress fits/looks on you (without just seeing those big bulky clamps that barely hold the dress up).
However, what was truly impressive was that the designers themselves (Robert Bullock & Steven Birnbaum) literally fit you each & every time you have an appointment!
Overall, it was an amazing experience! You will not find this type of personal service & high quality service anywhere else in the bridal industry.
They are truly amazing designers and amazing people!!!
I can literally go on forever about how wonderful Birnbaum & Bullock is? but please, all brides-to-be, do yourself the favor & go see for yourself!!!

I called Birnbaum & Bullock after trying unsuccessfully to have a seemstress do an Orthodox buildup on a gown we purchased elsewhere. After realizing at a 41/2 hour fitting that this job was over her head and we had 10 days left to the wedding, I went to see the gowns at Birnbaum and Bullock. I spoke to Robert about the delicate issue of getting my daughter to meet me and "start again' with only 10 days to go. She came over and fell in love with a couture gown. I fell in love with Robert and Steven as they efficiently & meticulously made my daughter the dress of her dreams!! It was a couture design with couture fabrics and couture workmanship to complete the look. My daughter was so at ease with the service and attention to detail that she wanted. Fittings were efficient and she looked divine!! They absolutely saved us and the pictures show a radiant, happy bride with a gown that was no less than magnificent!! Run..don't walk to Birnbaum and Bullock!!!

Pros: service, attenton to detail, treated with care & respect

Cons: none

I came upon Birnbaum & Bullock when I thought I had run out of options in the bridal world. I was frustrated with the pushy service and lack of caring at every other bridal salon I have been to (and trust me, I went to almost every one in NYC!). I even went to the big "bridal" houses out there like Klienfelds and at every one I was just put in dresses that didn't fit me right or were not what I was looking for, its as if they were just trying desperately to sell me a dress and not get to know me and my wedding....that is until I found Birnbaum & Bullock!!

I found them in Manhattan Bride Magazine and called them the next day after I saw a dress I liked so much and spoke with Robert Bullock on the phone. I was thinking they would not be able to see me for weeks (because every other bridal salon makes you wait ages to get an appointment), but I told him I was running out of time because me wedding is in almost 4 months! He then told me I could come in that day and not to worry at all, that I was fine with time and they would work with me (which is GREAT because most salons had already told me I was too late or would stress me out), he really put my mind at ease right away. Robert was SO kind over the phone and so helpful. I knew right away this was going to be a different kind of bridal experience!

Once I got there, the experience got even better! I have never been treated with such personal attention and kindness...like I was a person, not a number! It was wonderful. He worked with me to find the perfect gown, and when I mean perfect it was to die for beautiful. It fit me just right, was the right style for my wedding and makes me smile just thinking about it.

I had been everywhere and found nothing as beautiful and amazing as Birnbaum & Bullock. They have made the experience of being a bride so much better and I cannot wait to wear their gown on my wedding day!!

I feel very lucky to have my wedding gown designed, styled, and made by Mr. Bullock himself at Birnbaum & Bullock.

The flagship salon on W25th has a real bridal feel and from the moment I stepped inside, I have felt like a princess as all of my personal needs have been attended to.

Their gowns are classic and yet modern, rich and elegant, and designed for each bride with her unique look in mind.

I am very excited to get married and am THRILLED to have Birnbaum and Bullock with me as I walk down the aisle!

From Long Island to Manhattan, my mom had visited a number of stores/showrooms looking for the perfect gown for my wedding. Upon her first phone conversation with Robert, she immediately "had a feeling" she would be purchasing her dress from Birnbaum & Bullock. Robert instantly knew which gowns to show my mom and needless to say the first one she tried was the winner - he just knew what would work well for her. Not only is Robert extremely talented, but he was patient, accomodating, and very easy to work with. The showroom is very relaxing and you really receive superb service/attention - we totally clicked with Robert and our visits for fittings were always lots of fun. On the wedding day, our guests could not get over how incredible my mom looked and how stunning her dress was - the gown was truly meant for her. I HIGHLY recommend visiting Birnbaum & Bullock, whether you are a bride-to-be or mother of the bride!

Robert Bullock is an amazing talented designer and a great person. When he saw my daughter, he knew immediately what would look great on her and picked out the perfect dress. It was the first wedding gown she had ever tried on. Of course being a Jewish mother I could not let her buy the first dress, even thought she was in love with it. After dragging her around to 8 other places, we realized that the dress at Birnbaum & Bullock was the one for her.
The quality and beauty of the gown was extraordinary. Robert could not have been more gracious and patient, and gave us so much personalized attention customizing the dress just for her. I cannot wait for her to wear it! I have never had such a wonderful experience dress shopping and highly recommend this fabulous wedding design firm. You are treated like a princess and never want to leave their salon

If you want to have an exceptional experience with your wedding dress process I highly recommend going to Birnbaum and Bullock. First of all you meet with directly with the designers!!! And they only take one appointment at a time so you have their full attention. They focus on you, and work with you on what you want in a dress, even if that means altering one of their designs, and they just make you feel so special from your first try on session through all your fittings. They have a wide range of styles for you to choose from, all of them made with the best quality materials?.the finest laces, chiffons etc and all of the dresses are silk lined so they??re not only gorgeous but comfortable too. I really can??t say enough about them; every time I leave a fitting I??m practically skipping down the street. If you want a superior dress then you should go to these superior designers. They??re the best!

After many unsatisfying trips to bridal shops all over Manhattan I had almost given up on buying my dream wedding dress...until I came across the perfect gown in a bridal magazine that belonged to Birnbaum & Bullock.

I immediately made an appointment, went to their flagship store in Chelsea, met with Robert Bullock, and in less than 30mins I purchased my dream gown! Had I not seen the Leigh Gown in the ad I would have had a tough time picking one out from their collection because they have such lovely pieces but I had my heart set.

My gown was a sleeveless which I had the designers custom make a halter...and it turned out fabulous! This is what's especially great with B&B because you get to work with the designers personally who will not only alter but add personal touches at your request! I did not feel comfortable telling a salesperson to do so at some of these other places. But I knew here I was in good hands.
