Lovely Bride: what do users think?


Alannah Staver: I had the most wonderful experience at Lovely Bride DC! Tabitha was wonderful at getting to know me and what I did/didn't love when it came to a wedding dress. Patient throughout the appointment and actually recommended I try the dress that I eventually said "yes" too (I was hesitant, but the experts knew best :) )! My dress arrived in a timely manner and the team was really flexible on pick up times. I can't recommend Lovely Bride DC more!

Anna Mahr: I can’t say enough good things about my experience at LovelyBride in Georgetown!! Gorgeous shop, personalized, professional, and overall phenomenal experience. I was fortunate enough to have the owner Danielle as my consultant and I felt like she was able to read me so well and provided the experience my family really wanted that day. I went to another salon right after I left lovely bride and the dresses and service just didn’t even compare. I said yes to the dress immediately and cancelled all my future appointments, and I’m so so excited to be a lovely bride!!!

Amanda Bovi: I said YES to the dress at Lovely Bride DC with Danielle 11/10/21 @11am. The Sarah Seven VIVI is the dress for me! The shop is just gorgeous. I wanted to thank Danielle for making the experience for me and my family a great one. I appreciate her being flexible with allowing my two moms and twin sisters in the shop. Danielle is a rock star and made us feel so comfortable. She is beautiful, sweet and easy going which helped to make the experience so delightful. Thank you so much for your help! Even living in Vermont and having the dress shipped to my house Danielle has been with me every step of the way. Staying in touch and replying quickly to all my questions. She has even helped me find a tailor. I can not say enough great things about her and the DC shop. I'm beyond excited to marry the man of my dreams in my dream dress!! Stay lovely!! Amanda

Sydney Sanderson: I bought my wedding dress from Lovely Bride DC back in February and my experience was nothing short of fabulous. On my first visit, I was by myself and Tabby helped me FaceTime my mom to share in the experience. Several dresses were pulled based on my choices made online, but a couple other dresses were pulled as we went along and Tabby honed in on what I was interested in. I loved the way they help you reach a decision, and everyone in the building was so supportive and kind - even if they were not directly helping me. A wonderful experience from start to finish and of course, a beautiful dress. Thank you!

Julia Ganzi: Loved my experience with Danielle at Lovely Bride. 2 of my final 3 dresses that I chose between were here. One of my bridesmaids ended up getting her wedding dress here too. Great vibe/ ambience in the salon, very personalized and attentive service, and the ordering process was very smooth with my dress arriving early.

Jennifer Freed: Elizabeth was amazing to work with and made my experience feel personal, special and so fun! She chose gowns I was obsessed with (that ended up being finalists) and immediately picked up on my style and the look I was going for. I honestly could not have had a better bridal shopping experience. Elizabeth is a gem and anyone would be so lucky to get to work with her! Lovely bride is also a beautiful space with gorgeous options .

Lauren Otto: I wanted to visit Lovely Bride from the moment I heard about them. I just knew it was my bridal shop and I knew I would find my dress with them. I knew from some previous bridal shop experiences that I wanted a dress by Made With Love. I had already fell in love with two/three styles and was eager to try on more and maybe find something that was a perfect balance of all the aspects of the dresses that I loved. When I saw that Lovely Bride was having a Made With Love trunk show, I wanted to scream with excitement. Unfortunately, as soon as I had found out, upon attempting to book an appointment online, I realized that they had no more appointments available during the week of the trunk show. I was devastated. So, I called the shop directly and asked if it was possible at all to be put on a waitlist or anything that would allow me a chance to go to the trunk show and I explained how badly I wanted to be able to be there. The stylist I spoke with over the phone excitedly told me that she had a couple appointments that she could offer me and of course, I accepted. I had my appointment mid November and my aunt accompanied me. Like I said, this wasn't my first time visiting a bridal shop and I pretty much knew exactly what I wanted to try on and what I was ultimately looking for. Danielle, the manager, was my stylist for my appointment and she was AMAZING. She made me feel at home, she gave me her honest thoughts and she was also straight-forward with me. I felt very comfortable at Lovely Bride and with Danielle as my stylist. The best part, I ultimately found my dress. Their dresses are a little pricier than they would have been closer to my home in Richmond, but the experience made it worth it for me. With the trunk sale going on, I also received a special discount, which I only found out about when I went to "check out." That was just a bonus! All in all, I strongly recommend Lovely Bride. Skip the other shops, and just book an appointment with them. You know you want to and you won't regret it!

Maddie: I went to 4 bridal studios before buying my dress and had the best experience at lovely bride!! Danielle was truly the best and so helpful. I was starting to get nervous and discouraged about my search for a dress but when i went to lovely bride i tried on about 4 dresses before i found the one, all of which i liked more than any dress i had tried up to that point. They definitely have the most unique selection of gowns specifically If you are looking for a more modern look that other stores just aren’t carrying yet. Cannot reccommend lovely bride enough!

bcdeloach2: Wedding Dress shopping at Lovely Bride was the Ultimate Bridal dream. I can not thank Kylie enough for her patience, kindness and overall attention to my desires in what I wanted in my dream dress. I went shopping alone because my family had already left town as I got off the waitlist and confirmed my appointment, but Kylie was my ultimate hype girl. I didn't even need my squad because she was GREAT!! The level of professionalism from the booking process all the way up to me saying YES to the dress has already been superb and so easy. I can't wait to pick up my dream dress and sure that the team is going to go beyond my expectations until the end! Thank you all so much!

Ariel Kramer O'Brien: This was the best wedding dress shopping experience I had throughout the process. Danielle chatted with me and showed a real interest in my life and relationship. It was a fun appointment and I strongly recommend going here for a unique and beautiful wedding dress.

Carine's Bridal Atelier: what do users think?


Tiffany P: Bianca was my consultant and she was incredible! She has true education and passion for fashion and design, which made her a joy to work with! Because of her background, she identified the technical details and construction of dresses that I love and pulled lots of winners. There was no guessing or awkward guiding because she *got* it. Of all my dress shopping, she made the most easy and authentic experience. The other consultants that were present were all so nice and hyped me up in a very genuine way. It was a very positive place to be.Their professionalism, knowledge of fashion and customer care is next level. The shop is very beautiful and professionally designed, it feels so special to be there and the bridal suite layout is perfect. It was so fun to have the area for guests right next to the fitting space, and to have the drama of a curtain being pulled back to show everyone the dress. It was also nice to not have to walk across a shop to go look a mirror everytime. They had a wide selection of price points and styles, and the designers they carry are all amazing. I thought I wouldn't be able to afford any dresses from here since they carry some bespoke legends, but I was happily surprised. Overall, Carine's and Bianca gave perfect bridal experience that you've imagined since you were a kid and you should treat yourself with a visit.

Marissa Metil: My experience at Carines was unforgettable! Bianca was my consultant and she was SO friendly and truly seemed so excited when I found my dress. When I went to pick it up from alterations a week before my wedding, she (who had not seen me since I picked my dress a year ago) was so excited to see me and was genuinely so happy for me! The team was great and the boutique was of course beautiful!

Breana Fischer: I'm so disappointed in this business. I reached out in May to schedule a dress fitting and was told that there was no rush and to reach back out in August to setup my fitting and alternations appointment. This made me a bit nervous, but I decided to wait because I really wanted to use them to work on my dress. I reached out in July to ensure that everything was in order and that I was on their list for August alterations. Unfortunately, I was told that they could no longer honor my request and that they had no availability. I was shocked. I followed their process and had email communications with their team. There was no apology or recommendations to other businesses, which even furthered my disappointment. My wedding is in late September, so now I'm scrambling trying to find a different business to alter my dress. This business' professionalism and how they handled this situation is completing unprofessional, and for a business where alterations start at $950, I expected more.

Megan Cairns: I love carine’s! The dresses were beautiful and high end and the inventory was fantastic. I worked with Briana who was amazing! She instantly understood my style and pulled perfect dresses for me. She was sweet and accommodating. She worked with me for multiple appointments and never became impatient. I was able to really explore the different styles and figure out what I wanted. While I didn’t end up purchasing my wedding dress from Carine’s, I had a great experience and would definitely recommend.

Kylie Kies: great selection of dresses! alterations are expensive ($950) and can only be done on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so keep that in mind, but you can get them done somewhere else. they also didn't tell me when my dress came in.

Marjan: They have a well-rounded and exclusive selection of designers, so I'll give them 3 stars for that and the beautiful interior of the boutique. However, I did not enjoy the service. First it took over a week to even book an appointment since they don't answer phones and don't have an online booking system. It is all done via email with responses that take 24 hours or more. Very annoying especially if you want to get into a trunk show or have simple questions. My consultant happened to be the owner, which I had no idea about since she didn't even introduce herself. I found out after the appointment, when I looked at the receipt. She was just pushy, cold, passive, and did not connect with me. She spent more time chatting with my fiancé than with me. This is supposed to be a memorable and once in a lifetime experience for a bride, so you expect the best. It just felt patronizing and I honestly felt like I was bothering HER by being there. No one wants to feel that way, especially not bridal shopping. I ended up buying a dress just because I wanted to be done with the situation...I really wasn't thinking clearly. When I got home, I realized I really didn't want to give my business to a place with such bad service. I'd rather it go to another boutique. Service is so important to me, and this place did not deliver at all. I contacted them to cancel the dress. It was within the window to cancel, so I did it and got the dress elsewhere. There was a $65 Covid fee, which I haven't encountered at any other boutique. They said it's to cover the cost of sanitation etc. I've been to so many other boutiques and never had to pay. Just something to note.

Ilana Naidamast: Carine’s Bridal/Aisle is truly the Kleinfeld of the DMV. Carine is the fairy godmother of bridal gowns and while I didn’t find my dress here, she taught me SO much about what I want in a dress. Carine was extremely knowledgeable and put so much thought, effort, and time into my appointment. I felt like an absolute princess. We talked for about 5 minutes before shopping through the racks and she knew my style right away. I have tried on a lot of dresses, none of which came close to “the one” until I visited Carine’s. Lastly, my appointment was in person during COVID and the $45 cleaning fee was SO worth it. She takes the ultimate amount of caution to stay safe, clean, and social distance. Cannot recommend Carine’s enough. Everything about this store and the experience feels magical.

Kate Guilfoyle: From the first time I visited Carine's last October and worked with Bri to my final dress pickup, I had a truly wonderful experience with you all. I felt special each and every time I visited and so appreciated the warmth, enthusiasm, and expertise you offered! Bri was such a joy and played arguably one of the most important roles in my wedding - finding me that perfect dress! I ended up getting the first one she put on me, one I didn't expect would be it from first glance but that became my absolute dream dress. She was sweet, knowledgable, and fun to be around - a perfect fit for an important appointment! I worked with Rosana for fittings and her attention to detail was incredible. She made sure the dress would be perfect and was extremely helpful at each of my three fittings. Everyone else that helped, chatted, etc. every time I visited was wonderful as well! I truly adore my dress and felt more beautiful on the wedding day than ever before - as cliche as it might sound.

Darine Fayed: Carine's is fantastic!! Elegant gowns, top notch tailored service, amazing experience all around in getting my gown!! Love her and love this place! ❤

Daniel Sweeney: Carine's gave us great customer service during our wedding process. My fiance found her dress and did alterations through Carine's. I had an alteration to my pocket square that we went through Carine's for. Their seamstress did an excellent job helping make the alteration and it looks amazing. Highly recommend.

Diana's Couture & Bridal: what do users think?


Chelsea Quenum: I always envisioned myself wearing a vintage gown on my wedding day but was torn between having a traditional bridal experience where you go to a beautiful salon versus purchasing something online. Ultimately, I chose to wear vintage on my special day. I purchased a classic, vintage A-line wedding dress and excitedly brought it to Diana, after finding her online; she had stellar reviews! I was planning for a June wedding and wanted to remove the long sleeves from my dress. Apart from that, I didn’t plan to change the dress much. However, during my initial consultation, Diana recommended several other alterations that would improve the overall fit of my dress (she is really great at this!)…we decided to open the neckline to a bateau/boatneck, to accentuate my neckline and cheekbones and shorten the torso. Diana also let the dress out at the waistline, brought in the bust and straightened up the buttons on the back of my dress (if you look closely in the before photo, they aren’t straight). To do this, Diana had to remove each piece of beaded lace and then resew it. When I returned for my first fitting a few months later, I could hardly believe it was the same dress. Diana kindly allowed me to bring my family and friends. I had my “say yes to the dress” moment and cried when I tried it on. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Diana and she truly is the gown doctor, she made all my dress dreams come true and put up with the many crazy bride moments I had throughout the redesign process, assuring me how beautiful I’d look on my big day. About a month before my wedding, I started to worry about several small buttonholes from where the original buttons were -- they became more visible after cleaning, and I wanted to cover them up somehow. Although they were barely visible, I knew they were there…Diana took care of it for me. She took the time to find and dye lace that matched the front of my dress and used it to create a beautiful design for the back of my dress. She even added pearl beading and I was amazed at how well it matched the original lace. After about a year of working together, I could not have imagined a more fun experience and my dress was absolutely stunning. As we went through the process, Diana suggested a belt, which she made for me. She also made my veil – a cathedral style veil with satin trim and a blusher. Diana is an incredibly talented and highly knowledgeable seamstress. She has my HIGHEST recommendation!

Dawensca Dorjuste: All I can say is… we need more businesses just like Diana’s Couture & Bridal. I haven’t received any customer service like this. As soon as I walked in…the energy and environment was so pleasing! I was searching for a last min measuring to be done, while other places required appt or just don’t provide that service. I was able to get fitted immediately. You won’t regret purchasing or doing your services here! Will come back to visit :)

Jill Bailey: Wow! Diana was amazing. I found a dress I loved, but the designer was out of business. I brought that photo and my re-design ideas to her and she helped me select the best fabric and custom designed my dress that was really a dream realized. It was so comfortable and so me. I had so many compliments. You need to trust her- she is decisive and gifted. I am very type A and organized, and Diana is artistic. Her ways may seem unconventional - but just let her do her thing, you will not be disappointed! I can not thank her enough!

Veronica Ivey Sawin: I would give six stars if I could. Diana is an artist. She knows her craft and, while she sets realistic expectations, she finds creative ways to make gorgeous gowns. When I met with Diana, I was torn between two concepts for my wedding dress; I wanted to wear my mother's wedding dress, but I also wanted a dress that reflected my own style. My mother's dress was straight from the '80s, with puff sleeves and a 6-foot train. I trusted Diana to completely deconstruct the original dress (with my mother's blessing), and build a new dress using only material from the original. She listened carefully to my preferences about the design, and suggested crucial modifications given my body type and the fabric we were using. She must have spent hours hand-sewing the Portuguese lace, which formed the top of the dress, and then proceeded to recommend other details to bring the dress together (all covered in the initial price estimate). In the final fitting, she clearly wouldn't settle for anything but a perfect fit. It was all worth it. A year has passed since our wedding, and - unsolicited, I swear - friends and family are still bringing up how stunning the dress was. I have carefully packed the dress away, with the faint hope Diana will be available to deconstruct/reconstruct for the next generation. Through this process, I also came to respect Diana as a woman of many talents. She has written a couple of excellent cookbooks and is passionate about her charity work with orphanages in Vietnam. A truly inspiring woman all around.

Modern Trousseau DC: what do users think?


Andrea Gilbert: I loved my custom experience! I found some lace on Etsy (Store: Couture Lace) that I absolutely fell in love with and then looked for local dressmakers to work their magic. I had my initial consult with Sabrina and Maddie at Georgetown and they were very helpful in getting the ball rolling and helping me pick out what I liked and didn't like. We were able to incorporate the lace into an existing pattern they had, and I couldn't be happier!
Response: Hi Andrea, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy you were able to create the dress of your dreams and enjoyed the Modern Trousseau experience. We wish you an amazing wedding day and a lifetime of happiness! XOXO, The MT Team

Eva Gavrish: My mom and I stacked appointments on one Saturday in Georgetown and Modern Trousseau was our second stop. As soon as we entered the shop it was the best experience we had throughout the day. The fitting room space is big and beautiful and the trying on process was easy with no pressure felt in anyway. Upon going to our third stop I kept thinking about the beautiful dress I had tried on at Modern Trousseau. I came back the following weekend to get measurements and discuss any items about my dress that I might want to customize which is an amazing option if there is anything you might want to tweak. Can't say enough good things about my experience and can't wait to see my dress when it comes in this fall!
Response: Hi Eva, Thank you so much for leaving a positive review! We aim to make our bride's dress journey fun & pressure-free. You were such a pleasure to work with & we cannot wait for you to step into your custom gown! Again, thank you for you kind review! XOXOX, The Ladies of Modern Trousseau

Hannah Bowers: I was worried the initial dress I had picked before covid wasn’t the right one and ran into Modern Trousseau as I wanted a Grace Kelly custom dress and was told they could do that. Ended up deciding that day to go with them custom “making” me a dress. I had second thoughts that evening but was told when I called first thing the next morning that it would be too late to cancel. The dress arrived and was poorly made for me as their shop is in Connecticut and—in order to get the best fit—you really need to go to their main location. It is a good concept but the product is not truly bespoke or couture. After getting several opinions from family and friends, I did not/could not wear the dress. Lesson learned. They may be ok for the styles they already have but if you want bespoke, this is not the shop for you.

Erin Aucar: Modern Trousseau was our first salon appointment and it set the bar high. After we went to another a salon, we realized how helpful it was to have Sabrina ask the right questions and be perceptive enough to guide us towards decisions. As someone who can be indecisive and who loves dresses to begin with, I knew that I would have a hard time deciding, but we ended up going back to Modern Trousseau the same day and putting two dresses together to make the perfect dress. I am so excited!!! They have a lot of classic designs if that is what you are looking for.
Response: Hi Erin, Thank you so much for your outstanding review! We love to hear that you enjoyed the Modern Trousseau experience, and that you were able to combine two dress designs to create the custom dress of your dreams! We wish you an amazing wedding day and a lifetime of happiness! XOXO, The MT Team

Christina Castiglione: Hannah was amazing to work with! She was very knowledgeable about the dress styles, fabric, and customization options. It felt extra special being the only party in the store and it felt very intimate and personal. Definitely recommended adding this place to your wedding dress salon list!
Response: Hi Christina, Thank you for shouting out our stylist, Hannah! We are so grateful that you're going to be wearing our designs for your big day! Thank you for your review. Xo, The Ladies of Modern Trousseau

Zoe Han: i initially worked with Sabrina, who is great and sold me the customize-made idea. But she relocated to CA, and i got transferred to another associate. The day that i ordered my dress, the associate had to measure me 3 times. i paid almost $7k for one "customized" dress (taking off the mesh and make it sweetheart neckline) + an overskirt. In my mind it would be all worth it if it fits me perfectly. unfortunately, it does not fit me well after 3 measurements! The torso part is way too long so that it doesn't show the best proportion. the bottom area is too tight, yet the breast and waist part is too loose. I want to claim that i did not gain or lose much weight during the 7 months waiting time... i ended up spending another $600 using their seamstress to make the dress fit. the seamstress lives more than 1 hour drive away from the Georgetown shop, and refuse to meet me at the shop after the initial meetup. the whole experience is very disappointing after spending $7k at the dress alone. they shouldn't call it full customization if they cannot even make a dress that fits the bride. i would give it 1 star if it's not for Sabrina. i do not recommend Modern Trousseau. money could be way better spent somewhere else.

Anna Washington: Allie was absolutely AMAZING!!! From the moment my Bride Squad and I walked into Modern Trousseau she made me feel like I was the most important woman in the room! My friends couldn’t help but mention how the experience there completely differed, in all the BEST ways, from our previous experience some where else. I am so happy MT was the last shop we visited — unknowingly saved the best for last! My experience didn’t feel rushed and Allie picked out the two dresses I absolutely fell in love with — you can tell that she not only has an eye for fashion but it also passionate about her profession! I would definitely recommend dress shopping here. You will not regret your experience!
Response: Hi Anna! Thank you so much for your kind words! Your Modern Trousseau experience with Anna perfectly describes what we hope to achieve with each bride. We are so happy you found the dress of your dreams and fell in love with not just one dress, but two! We wish you an amazing wedding day and a lifetime of happiness! XOXO, The MT Team

Clarissa: Modern Trousseau DC was extremely helpful with assisting me in finding my wedding dress! Jackie and Kelly were very nice and had great tips on how to style my dress for the big day. I not only felt comfortable and beautiful but like myself on my wedding which is what really mattered to me. They always started on time for every fitting and went above and beyond to help me find the perfect dress. They even helped me plan on how to get it overseas! Would recommend this shop to anyone looking for a wedding dress!
Response: Hi Clarissa, We are thrilled to hear that you had such a great experience with us! Every detail of your experience with us is so important, and we are so thankful for your kind words! XO, MT

Chelsea&Mike Lang: I loved my experience at modern trousseau. Id been to 3 other dress shops and nothing ever felt right. Even though I came in with no idea of what I wanted, Kelly and David helped me find my perfect dress. Callie and her team did a wonderful job creating such a beautiful piece. It couldn't fit more perfectly and the quality is unmatched.
Response: Hi Chelsea & Mike, Thank you so much for your positive review and choosing Modern Trousseau! We are so happy you found the dress of your dreams and enjoyed the Modern Trousseau experience. Your Modern Trousseau experience perfectly describes what we hope to achieve with each bride. We wish you an amazing wedding day in your custom gown! XOXO, The MT Team

Sarah Joseph: Just got home with my beautiful wedding dress and wanted to rave about my experience! This shop has really high-quality dresses; I'd been struggling to find one that was classic and relatively modest, and a friend recommended Modern Trousseau, where she'd gotten her (gorgeous) gown. At my bridal appointment, Sabrina and her team were so patient and attentive, asking me about all my preferences, and showing me tons of dresses. Even after all the time they spent with me, I wasn't pressured to buy - but I literally dreamed about one of the dresses, and went back at the end of the week to make the purchase! SO happy with my experience at this shop! Would recommend to any bride-to-be :)
Response: Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for your kind words! We strive to provide the best experience for each bride and we're so honored to be part of your special day! We are so happy you found the dress of your dreams (literally!) and enjoyed the Modern Trousseau experience. We wish you an amazing wedding day and a lifetime of happiness! XOXO, The MT Team

BHLDN: what do users think?


Maggie Bowman-jones: We had an appointment scheduled for one of my bridesmaids on Friday- her flight was changed and we had to cancel and try moving to Saturday. Tiana was amazing and noted the new flight time and got us in for Saturday. God knows it’s hard to work in retail right now, but I’ve found the staff at all BHLDN Locations I’ve visited to be so kind and helpful- they truly do try their best to accommodate when they can. The studio upstairs in Georgetown is also so quiet and super private compared to other BHLDN locations which was also a plus.

Samantha K: I’d love to give 5 stars! The staff were a dream to work with. They clipped and zipped me whenever I needed help. Reps emailed me a list of seamstress in the area, which was helpful too. The offer limited sizes to try on and like what another reviewer said the dresses are in poor condition but they were good enough to get an idea. I liked the dressing room size and setup. The reason why I am giving four stars is because of their lighting in the entire dressing room. The only lights that were helpful were in the fitting room but not where you walk out to show your friends what the dresses look like on you. That lighting was not great on me. My dress was shipped to the wrong address. I called and the rep said she fixed my address. Hopefully, the dress arrives. Mistakes happen. Parked in a lot for $12/day but there is a garage in the building that BHLDN is in.

Courtney W: I came to BHLDN as a bridesmaid to try on dresses. Our consultant (do not know her name) was not good. She was not very friendly or helpful. We felt like we had to ask her to do things that she should’ve already been doing. She made a comment towards me that made me feel horrible about my size. She rushed the bride at the end of the appointment in a rude manner. The bride had come here before and had an opposite experience with another consultant, so i know they’re not all like this.

Yasemina Julia Paraskeva: Recently scheduled an appointment to try on bridal gowns at Bhldn’s Gtown location. They had a broad variety of gowns and an ample fitting room. I received excellent service from Sloane - she was very thorough in explaining the ordering process and in helping me determine my size. She was very attentive. I highly recommend her when making bridal gown try-on appointments at Bhldn Georgetown!

Joy Lyle: Stopped in the store last minute to look at the wedding dresses. The consultant Ellie was so kind and accommodating. Wonderful experience! 😊

Emily Dohogne: The sample dresses to try on are in rough shape - there was pilling, stains, and pulls on much of the dresses’ fabrics. They need to be replaced. It’s difficult to get a visual image of the gowns because of the state of their conditions. Overall, it was a good appointment. Our stylist was nice and helpful and honest, but again, the state of the dresses really brings down the experience and expectations of these thousand dollar dresses.

Hayley Hoaglund: I was very excited to try on BHLDN's dresses! They are beautiful and just my style but unfortunately the service was awful and I left feeling flustered and frustrated. Our stylist, Gabriella, was extremely pushy and only let me try on 4 dresses. I pointed out others I liked but she would not let me try them, and proceeded to count down the minutes until the appointment time was over. My family flew in from the midwest to accompany me, and she would not wait for my own mom to see the dress on me before she had me change, stating "only 15 minutes left, there is no time" and pushing my mom out of the dressing room. I left in tears about how she made us feel, the confrontations that we had, and that my family had flown across the country for an experience like that. I am extremely disappointed. BHLDN needs to work on making the brides feel beautiful and valued before they will ever get my business!

Ryan Beigel: Even though I didn't find my dress here, my stylist Savannah was awesome. Loved how laid back and patient she was and she pulled some great dresses with different silhouettes. I think that this store is best for brides looking for a boho look at an affordable price. Definitely recommend making an appointment for sure.

Emily Hewitt: I absolutely loved my wedding dress shopping experience thanks to BHLDN Georgetown! I was absolutely in love with the Cecily Gown (which at the time was on final sale) and I desperately wanted to be able to try it on and see it in person instead of taking a risk & ordering it online (final sale dresses are not returnable). I was able to make an appointment for a fitting 24 hours before going in. I went to BHLDN with my mom on my lunch break (thank goodness I worked in DC and was so close by!) and Calla, our sales associate, was so sweet! Of course I tried on the Cecily Gown first (AND FELL IN LOVE!!), but I also tried on other dresses as well. Calla quickly figured out my style and brought me more dresses I hadn't noticed before to try on too. I knew the Cecily Gown was "the one" and after purchasing, my mom and I were allowed to relax in the store for a bit longer and enjoy some complimentary champagne. I don't know what BHLDN is like on a weekend, but I can say that shopping on a weekday was amazing. It was like a personal, private shopping experience (I should add this was pre-COVID pandemic). Additionally, months later, when I decided it was time to purchase a veil, I e-mailed BHLDN Georgetown and asked if they had a veil in stock that I tried on at my fitting. Unfortunately that veil was no longer available but Lauren recommended the Scalloped Fingertip Veil which was very similar. She even gave me a free shipping code for it! I felt like an absolute princess on my wedding day in the Cecily Gown and Scalloped Fingertip Veil and I can't thank BHLDN Georgetown enough for their help! I love BHLDN wedding dresses and they are so much more affordable compared to other bridal salons. I highly recommend and wish I could have another wedding simply to wear another BHLDN gown! :)

Stephanie Song: I've been to 3 BHLDN locations (NYC, Devon, and Georgetown) and this is the best one by far. My stylist, Cora, was so helpful and accommodating. She didn't pressure me at all, or make me feel rushed, even though I was half an hour late due to traffic. She took time to listen to what I wanted and gave me non-pushy suggestions for dresses that would fit my body/venue well.

Ellie's Bridal Boutique: what do users think?


Jacqueline Watts: I purchased a beautiful Mikaella gown from Ellie's in February 2020. The consultant I worked with, Jane, made me feel extremely comfortable and listened to during the process. I actually made a few appointments at Ellie's because I was indecisive about a dress. Jane suggested that we take the top of one dress and the bottom of another to create something totally custom. I originally didn't think option that would be in my price range, but to my surprise it was! I really appreciated that Jane took the time to call and check that my specific custom gown would be possible. I had to reschedule my wedding reception due to covid, Ellie's was extremely helpful. While I held on the my dress after it came in, Ellie's never made me feel like I was going to get lost in the shuffle. I worked with Chelsea during my fittings and she was very knowledgable and helpful. I highly recommend visiting Ellie's when looking for a gown for your big day.

Rebecca Rzepkowski: This was my first time trying on wedding dresses and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. They were very understanding and accommodating when I had to reschedule my original appointment due to COVID. The consultant, Skye, was amazing! She helped me navigate through different styles, picked dresses in my price range, and was very knowledgeable about the dresses. She made us feel comfortable and welcome. I also found my dream dress here! Highly recommend!

corinne price: I visited Ellie's Bridal Boutique on 4/09 with my Mom and a friend to try on dresses for my upcoming wedding. Christie, the bridal consultant, was absolutely AMAZING! She allowed us to browse through the dresses (which very few boutiques allowed) and encouraged me to pick up 7-8 dresses to try on. She listened to my feedback, identified new dresses, and would bring them back for my opinion. She also helped me in/out of the dress and fully clipped me into it, so that it would have the right look and feel. I visited 4 other salons prior to Ellie, and Christie was the most helpful and experienced of all the wedding consultants. With Christie's support, I found my dress! I highly recommend visiting Ellie's Bridal Boutique.

Rose Lieberman: The consultants at Ellie's were amazing! Our consultant, Jane, was knowledgeable and encouraging (but not overly so). This was the first store I went to and loved the 5th dress I tried on. After visiting one other, I came right back and bought my dress. Ellie's let me come back same day (without having an appointment) and try on the dress again and picked out great accessories to really see the look. Especially when I came back on to try the gown again, I did not feel rushed which was very important to me. Also, the ambiance was very open and bright, fairly spacious, and dressing rooms had a decent amount of space for trying on huge gowns (versus the other boutique I visited, it was a bit more cramped). Also, we were allowed to walk through the racks and pick out gowns ourselves to try on (versus the consultants choosing all gowns for you). Overall, would definitely recommend visiting Ellie's for a great dress experience!

Kishana Highgate: I worked with Megan who was very accommodating and super fun to work with. My girlfriends wanted to decorate the salon and surprise me for my dress shopping. We had champagne, balloons and cupcakes! Megan was kind enough to allow us to celebrate dress shopping in this manner. The gowns were absolutely beautiful. I had no idea what I wanted my dress to look like and it took me close to no time to find the perfect dress for me! The experience was pleasant and Megan was great to work with. I will have to return to the store when my dress is ready and it's time to work on alterations. So far, it's been a great experience and I recommend this store. I have high expectations that my experience will continue to be excellent with this bridal store!

Dynahlee Padilla-Vasquez: Update: Chelsea was fantastic during every bridal fitting since November. She was super fun, gracious, helpful, and understanding of my concerns. She answered every question and is so kind. Loved working with her! Ellie’s Bridal got everything ready for my bridal photo shoot, cleaned, and pressed it once again for the big day, and fixed a few threads that were loose. Excited to see the cleaning and preservation services come to fruition as well. I’m confident they’ll do a lovely job. Thank you Ellie’s Bridal for making me feel like a queen each time and especially on my wedding day, 3.11.22 👑 -Dynahlee P.S. Neysha Bauer Photography took our photos for the engagement, bridal shoot, and wedding. Highly recommend! -- Picking out my dress: Jane Lee was incredible to me (the bride-to-be) and my mom and sister as part of my #bridetribe. She welcomed us with open arms and asked us off the bat what my budget was. She was transparent about what the boutique offered and gave us an opportunity to pick dresses on our own. Then she'd circle back, ask how we were doing, and then chose some dresses she also thought I'd like based on our previous conversation. Each time I got into the dressing room, Jane Lee graciously offered to finish zipping me up and synching the dress well to get a realistic look, feel, and height with the dress on. The fitting room also had a sign with several tips on how to make the most out of the fitting experience. Jane Lee also explained the design of each dress, how it would look once it was tailored, and also added spaghetti straps, a veil, accessories, and a bouquet for finishing touches which offered a true vision of myself as the bride-to-be. She answered all our questions and offered a helpful perspective. With that, we were able to find the perfect dress for me! There was crying, laughing, some dancing, and celebrating. In all, Ellie's Bridal Boutique offers 4-inch platform shoes, a 3D mirror, and an intimate experience. Thank you, Jane Lee and Ellie's Bridal Boutique. You made my vision come true. You were so knowledgeable and personable. We couldn't have had a better experience! And the contract made it all so professional and real. Thank you again!

Raquel Sorto-Robles: I found the one!!! After going to 3 other bridal shops, I found my dress at Ellie’s bridal. They have dresses for allll budgets and it’s a great experience! The moment you walk into this old town Alexandria store, you feel happy and excited to find the dress. I don’t know the name of who helped me, but this lady was great! She took her time with me and never rushed me and let me just have fun with the experience. I 10/10 recommend Ellie’s bridal to any bride!

Emma Reidsma: I had shopped for a wedding dress at three other shops before walking into Ellie's Bridal Boutique. This was by far the best experience. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Chelsea, she was so helpful and allowed us the opportunity to look through the racks and pull dresses I liked. From there, she was able to recommend a few other dresses. Chelsea is the best and I hope to purchase my dress from Ellie's Bridal Boutique just so I can work with her more.

Erin Hicks: I worked with Skye and she was so helpful and gave great tips on what to expect. She expanded my vision on what type of dress looks good on me and I couldn't be more grateful for her help! The boutique was really cute and so many options to choose from. I would definitely recommend checking it out!

Cheryl Fellner: My daughter made an appointment at Ellie's based on the great reviews, and I'm happy to add one more. They have a large selection of dresses from great designers We were allowed to browse and pull dresses to try on. Our consultant, Skye, was friendly, knowledgeable, listened to what we wanted, and pulled dresses accordingly. You could tell she loved her job, and she never rushed my daughter. Her 2 friends and I were allowed to take pictures and videos, which I've heard is not allowed in some stores. First time bridal shopping for me, I don't know if this describes every salon, but Ellie's just made me happy and smile. And she bought a gorgeous dress! Highly recommend!

Nazemi Bridal: what do users think?


mehrnaz lowlowvachi: I had such an amazing experience at Nazemi bridal. I brought in my wedding dress for some alterations and couldn’t be any HAPPIER with the result. My dress wasn’t an easy dress for alteration, I visit few other places before and didn’t feel comfortable leaving my dress with them so I started researching and one my friend’s told me about this boutique. So happy I chose Nazemi bridal, Tanaz and her staff are very professional, they went above and beyond, and definitely made me feel super special🤩 Thank you for the great experience.

Clo D: Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with my experience at Nazemi Bridal. My dress was a lace fitted dress and they were a recommended tailor. I had 3 main complaints with the work. 1. The work was not well done, and it was very obvious to see that the dress was hemmed. They did not trim the lace after hemming, so there was a double layer above the hem which left a clear a white line. 2. When I came in, I asked for the dress to be hemmed and fitted. They insisted on also putting in a bustle, and I was given a quote. When I came for a try on, they had not fitted the dress at all, and when I inquired why not and said that that would be an additional charge. I was very clear the first time that I wanted it fitted and hemmed, and they had assured me that they would do that as well as the bustle. I was not happy with the additional charge, but the bill was not itemized and at the time I felt stuck and I didn't argue. 3. It was incredibly expensive. Me, not knowing better and knowing that lace dresses are difficult to tailor, paid it without double checking what average tailoring costs online. I was supposed to get married in early 2020, but we postponed due to COVID. I lost quite a bit of weight, and repurchased the same dress in a smaller size. I took it to a different tailor, and they did significantly better work for less than a third of the cost, and did not try and add additional charges half way through the fitting. Had I worn the dress that Nazemi Bridal had tailored, I would have been disappointed with my wedding pictures pictures. Hoping they do better work and are more clear with customers in the future.

Angela Baker: I had my wedding dress altered at Nazemi bridal- Tannaz and her team did a beautiful job. My dress was intricate with beading and multiple layers making it a more challenging alteration. Tannaz explained to me thoroughly what would be done to make the necessary alterations and offered a variety of options including various bustles. In the end, I chose to not get a bustle because of cost, and Tannaz added on a loop for ease of holding the train while walking around, which worked great. I had cups changed, straps shortened, and the length shortened. I had three fittings which started about 2 months before my wedding date. My dress fit absolutely perfectly. Overall, the service and tailoring were perfect! I highly recommend for bridal alterations.

Asal: What an amazing experience! If you’re a bride to be in DC /MD/VA area ,you really won’t find a better bridal salon than NAZEMI Bridal.They’re so friendly and professional,The environment is so beautiful and peaceful.I would 100% recommend NAZEMI bridal to anyone!

Michelle J: I had my wedding dress altered at Nazemi Bridal and couldn't have had a better experience. Although parking in Georgetown isn't very easy, the shop itself is very serene and calming and the fittings always went smoothly. The work they do is incredible! I still can't believe how seamlessly they hemmed the very delicate scalloped lace at the bottom of my dress - they are absolute masters, which is worth the expense to get a perfect fit. My dress fit gorgeously on my wedding day. I wouldn't go anywhere else for dress alterations for big events.

Nora B: I had a wonderful experience with Tannaz and her team at Nazemi Bridal. I had a fitting in May, June, and July for my August wedding, and she was professional, kind, and helpful. Her shop is beautiful and she knows exactly what alterations to make to help you look your best. I had no idea how to bustle a dress but she showed me a few options to choose between. We ended up going with a french bustle that had nine ribbons, but she made it easy for me to learn how to put them all together. My dress came back completely clean with no visible seams, and she also gave me advice for steaming and pressing the dress before the big day. I got so many compliments on my dress and felt absolutely amazing in it all night.

Brittany M: Nazemi Bridal isn't cheap, and dragging a dress around Georgetown is not fun...but she is patient, kind, and the service you get is worth the money. My dress fit perfectly, and I felt like an absolute queen on my wedding day. I would highly recommend her!

Jess Cromeek: I got my wedding dress altered at Nazemi Bridal, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this place! Tannaz and staff did an absolutely beautiful job, and expertly took in the dress after a third fitting without charge because I had lost weight, and what I had already paid included that additional alteration. Tannaz with was very responsive via phone and email, and was absolutely wonderful to work with. On my first visit I asked their opinion on my shapewear, and Tannaz very kindly let me know that the shapewear that was sold to me to wear under my wedding dress was too dark in color, and created some extra skin in the back. She advised me on what shapewear I should purchase instead, and she was 100% right (she also saved me about $100!). The store itself is so clean and beautiful, I felt very comfortable that my dress was there. They are pricey, but wedding dress alterations in general is pricey if you want peace of mind that your dress is safe, and your seamstress has experience in specifically altering wedding dresses, which is a particular craft. Tannaz and staff truly know what they are doing! Every penny was well spent, and I ended up getting my dress steamed there as well. I felt gorgeous on my wedding day, and I am so grateful to Tannaz and staff for the wonderful work they did.

Danielle Gray: I called them to ask about their availability and the woman who answered said, “we are closed today”. I then asked what the usual weekly hours are and then she hung up on me. I called right back (just in case the line had only cut off) and it rang and rang and then went to the voicemail. Not very welcoming :-(

Lara Pagano: Incredible! They were amazing and worked quickly to make a bustle change. Their work is of high quality. I highly recommend them for alterations.

Green and Blue Studio: what do users think?


Jovanna Cross: I chose Green and Blue Studio for my wedding dress alterations and I am so happy I did! I brought in my BHLDN dress and they were able to complete alterations and the bustle in my desired timeline (three months). The bustle was very well-done and looked perfect. My friend came with me to the final fitting for a quick tutorial on how to do the bustle, making it a quick and seamless process on my wedding day. The studio also has a steaming option add-on that made the day of my wedding so much easier/stress-free. From start to finish, my experience with Green and Blue Studio was fantastic. They were efficient, talented, and responsive - truly experts in this field! Wedding dress preservation is also offered. All in all, you are paying for quality work and I would recommend their services to anyone.

Caroline Barba: Green and Blue Studio was recommended to me by multiple people and dress boutiques and now I know why! My wedding dress fit me perfectly. After our wedding, I've had multiple people comment specifically on how well my dress was tailored and how it fit me like a glove. Thank you to Green and Blue Studio for making sure I felt comfortable in my dress.

Morgan Whitesell: Green and Blue Studio was easy to work with, a pleasant environment, and an overall great experience! I bought my dress off the rack and needed to get it altered to fit as well as have the belt attached. They listened to all my concerns and thoughts and had great input as well! It was clear that everyone there knew what they were doing! I needed only two fitting appointments and then was good to go! I was so happy with my dress and glad I went with Green and Blue Studio for alterations!

Ariel Kramer O'Brien: Green and Blue studio was an easy and stress free alterations experience. It was two appointments and that great recommendations for underwear and tape. I trusted them and they did a beautiful job.

Raquel DeSouza: Green and Blue Studio made my BHLDN wedding gown fit perfectly! They're so professional and took their time during my fittings to make sure I felt confident and comfortable. I highly, highly recommend these skilled women!

Janei Jarrett: Honestly, this is one of the best businesses I have ever worked with. I recently had my wedding dress altered here for my wedding in March and the team here listened to everything, made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. Most times for weddings I feel like everyone tries to tuck you out of the ideas you have for your day but Green and Blue although offered their perspective they offered it tactfully and gracefully. I asked to leave my dress long, and I know it’s not recommended, but they let me know although it wasn’t super common they would be more than happy to make adjustments. They are super responsive via email and I do not have a bad thing to say. My dress is perfect and I will recommend this place to anyone! Thank you so much!!!

Kelly Stegman: Green and Blue Studio made my wedding dress dreams come true! Not only did the perfectly tailor my dress, they also custom made my veil using pieces from my mom's wedding dress. They were super helpful and it was a joy working with them!

Rachel Brown: Green and Blue is the best! My dress is absolutely perfect. The time, detail and care put into my alterations was amazing, and I would recommend the team to any bride.

Haley Cochran: I had the absolute best experience here! After being referred by Lovely Bride DC, I promptly made an appointment for my wedding dress alterations. Their boutique is beautiful, bright, and clean, which actually made this part of the wedding planning process enjoyable! The seamstresses were so personable and professional, and I was impressed with how quickly the alterations were completed. The craftsmanship of the dress exceeded all of my expectations and I didn’t want to take it off!

Alina Schmidt: My experience with Green and Blue Studio was beyond amazing. The staff are so sweet and do everything they can to make your dress fit perfectly. I was overwhelmed with the amount of care they put into my dress. I recommend Green and Blue Studio to anyone in the DMV area who wants the absolute best alterations done on their dress!

Bella Bridesmaids: what do users think?


Kaitlyn Hegarty: Bella Bridesmaids was so cute! I loved the layout of the space. Secluded with very simple modern decor. Liz was absolutely wonderful with helping me find the perfect dress that fit my body and personality. She was also very warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this place.
Response: Hi Kaitlyn, Thank you so much for your kind words! We always love to hear from our customers. We can't wait to see pictures of you in your beautiful dress!

Lia Konieczny: Their dresses are extremely overpriced and I received terrible customer service when trying to arrange the pickup of my dress. For context, the bride and other bridesmaids are based out of DC but I made a fitting appointment and ordered my dress from the Richmond location. At the time of my in store order, the consultant said that I was good to go and they’d call me when my dress arrived in Richmond. Fast forward almost 6 months later, after trying to track my dress down over the past two weeks (I received an email on 3/10 saying my order had arrived and they would be shipping them out to us the next day), the DC office said they had the dress and apologized for the mixup and told me to send them an I address so they could ship it to me, there was NO mention of an additional charge or that they would not ship the dress to another Bella location. Today, they informed me that it would be an additional $26.50 for them to ship the dress to my home address as they do NOT ship dresses between locations. It’s absolutely ridiculous that this information was NEVER communicated to me at any point during this process and I will be highly discouraging my friends and family from using Bella in the future.

Mary Allen DeBold: great experience and selection! i've used the Bella Bridesmaids in DC both for my own wedding but also having been in multiple weddings across the last few years. each time, the staff is helpful and communicative. highly recommend!!

Emily Lagos: I had a wonderful experience with Bella Bridesmaids in DC. Especially Sheri the owner who took special care of me and my girls. The dresses were beautiful, arrived in a timely manner and looked amazing on all my bridesmaids. Bella has tons of selections which is why I selected them for my Wedding Day. Although the price was high it was worth it. All my girls loved their dresses and had the option to get some money back for them by selling them to other Bridesmaids/Ladies for other events. Choose Bella-They are GREAT!

Abigail Shiman: This Bella Bridesmaids location is incredible! The mixed reviews made me a little nervous, but if you're wondering whether to go in, do it! I was shopping for my small wedding ceremony and Stacy and Hunter were both so helpful. The online booking process was easy - Hunter even called me ahead of time because I'm shopping last minute and he wanted to confirm my details. Once in the store, I felt completely taken care of, was able to try on a big variety of styles, and ended up with two dresses I could go with. Stacy knew I wasn't sure, so she set my profile up online and I calmly ordered a dress when I got home. She was fantastic with sizing me correctly, helping me figure out what I wanted in a dress, and made me feel at ease. So grateful!

nicole flores: I’m so disappointed and irritated with this place. We picked it, because it looked like they had a lot of options. Please don’t waste your time and money. My friend’s wedding is two weeks away we still don’t have the dresses, this order was placed back in April. The store associate have not been helpful or try to give options to resolve this issue, they have the audacity to say “we don’t know where the dresses are” there is a contract in place were it clearly states *BY PLACING THIS ORDER, I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES AND AGREE WITH ALL THE TERMS STATED IN THIS CONTRACT AND POLICY FORM AND AUTHORIZE BELLA BRIDESMAID TO CHARGE THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE. How about when they do not comply with the contract. I still cannot believe the lack of customer service, and the stress that they put people on their wedding planning.
Response: Hi Nicole, Thank you for your feedback. We truly value all of our customers. We have been in contact with the bride regarding the order for her wedding. Due to COVID's impact on logistics the designer has been delayed in shipping the dresses. While we are unable to take responsibility for the impacts of COVID and the designer logistical challenges, our top priority has been to notify the bride and provide solutions to the best of our ability. We are so deeply sorry and have never had this experience prior to COVID. We are very disappointed, but are aiming to exercise patience and understanding with our partner during this challenging time.

Kylie Kies: pros: lots of options, a variety of price points cons: shipping delays, communication, charges for extra length ($20 on a $190 dress for someone who is 5'9") and shipping ($25) TLDR- I ended up cancelling my bridal party's orders 4 weeks from the wedding. Do not recommend. more info on shipping delays: My group's dresses were supposed to arrive last week. No one reached out to let us know they were delayed. I reached out thursday evening. Friday morning they said the dresses were delayed due to COVID but that they had confirmed the dresses were made and would confirm an ETA later that day. I understand there are supply chain issues due to COVID so wasn't shocked, but they should have proactively told me instead of waiting for me to inquire. I did not hear back on Friday. On Monday evening, I reached out requesting an update. It is now Tuesday evening. I have not heard from them since Friday morning and my wedding is in 4 weeks. I heard back wednesday morning. The dresses are now expected to arrive 2-3 WEEKS after the initial date provided. I totally get that the factory has COVID delays. I would expect to at least get some sort of refund since my girls may now end up with less than 2 weeks to get their alterations done. Based on other reviews im now afraid that we might end up with a wrong color or size and we will end up having to scramble to find something else. Update: we decided to cancel the order. We placed the order within the time frame they recommended. I get COVID has messed with things and some things are out of their control, but I do expect them to try to communicate everything and do what they can. On another note, they charge $25 per dress for shipping, which seems very high to me and was not disclosed when I picked the dresses. I expect that they will at least overnight the dresses when they do arrive.

Sheryl Greene: I am extremely disappointed with Bella Bridesmaids DC. I went in March to get measured for a bridesmaids dress. That same day, I also got fitted for a different Bridesmaid dress at David's Bridal. The salesperson who helped us at Bella's took my measurement and told me I was a size 8 for the dress I would be ordering. I told the salesperson my concern that size 8 would be too large as I had just ordered a size 2 for my other dress that day, and normally wear a size 2 or size 4 (I am 5'3, ~115-120 lbs). However, because of the limited sized Bella's has in store, I went with his suggestion as he was the professional and noted how different Bella's sizes were..Plus, I was not able to try on any dress smaller than a size 10 or 12, I believe. Fast forward 4 months later when my dress came in late July. The dress is HUGE on me, as I feared (with only 5 weeks until the wedding). After conversations with the sales people there, I emailed and they agreed to refund me for the alterations to take the dress in multiple places. Fast forward 3 months and I have NOT received my refund for the $100 of alterations I had to get (excluding the hem) that they promised me. I have called and emailed over 15 times since August. Completely unprofessional. The dress itself was nice and decent quality. It looked nice for my friend's wedding, which I'm glad. Everything else was an extreme let down and I would not recommend Bella's to anyone. I just hope I get paid back for the alterations. I will not be back.

Jessica Clingerman: This was such a good experience. I'm so glad I went in to try stuff on. I have never been in a bridal party and I hate being fussy. The owner, I think her name is Liz, helped me with my fitting. She suggested dresses and sizes that would work for me. She listened to all my concerns and made me feel comfortable.i didn't feel bad for having to try on a bunch of dresses. I would have definitely gotten the wrong size if she didn't help.

Jamie Davis: Great experience! The process was very easy for all my bridesmaids that were in different locations. Bella Bridesmaids kept me in the loop and let me now once all of my bridesmaids dresses were ordered/delivered etc. Bride recommended!

Global Bridal Gallery: what do users think?


Lael Henry: Let me start by saying wow!! Every dress that I tried on for my fitting was absolutely gorgeous… it was so hard picking just one! Service was beyond expectation! Serki helped me find my dream dress and she was friendly, charismatic, and absolutely lovely!! The boutique is so cute! I was listened to when I told her the style of dress I’d like and my budget. She gave me several options and even some that were gorgeous under budget! I’d definitely recommend anyone getting married to visit Global Bridal Gallery for their dream wedding dress and experience!!! I’m super excited for my wedding day!

Rachael Behr: Just such an amazing staff and selection of dresses here! I found my dream dress the day before, at another shop, but kept looking since it was my first time looking! Global Bridal Gallery had the same dress for $300 cheaper and they were so much nicer and happy to go to great lengths for me! 100% recommend going here!

Salia Farrokh: Serki was amazing. I went there with my mom after not finding the dress of my dreams for a month (so girls if that's your situation, don't worry--they can help you!). She was so patient and she listened to what I had in my mind and made my vision come true! I cannot say enough about this place. People treat you like family and that's very special.

laanmac1: My daughter found her Wedding dress here! The stylist took time with her and at one time there were two of them working with her at a time! We were even invited back the next day before store hours to finalize her Selection. I love the fact that they wore masks as well. Highly recommend.

Jessica Krauss: Definitely a 10/10 experience!! I worked with Marie to choose my wedding dress and I could not have been happier! I didn’t know what to expect going into the appointment, but Marie made me feel comfortable right from the start. She was super welcoming to me and my guests. She clearly is a pro and has a system down. She got a feel for my style right away and tweaked what dresses she pulled based on my reactions. She made me feel beautiful and confident in everything I tried on! I ended up finding my dream dress and had so much fun in the process. Thank you Marie & Global Bridal!

Meghan Rimol: I had a wonderful experience shopping for and eventually purchasing my wedding gown at GBG. The staff is lovely to work with, not to mention extremely knowledgable with a unique understanding of how to make every bride look her best. Serki is truly amazing and picked out the perfect gown for me (first one I tried on!) but was also patient and not pressuring at all as I wanted to shop around before coming back to GBG to eventually buy my dress. So happy with the experience and would highly, highly recommend!!!

Ava Schwarz: i decided to book an appointment here after seeing on their website that they have lots of options for plus sized brides. i am a size 16-18 in normal formal wear so as plus sized brides go, i am on the smaller side which theoretically should be easy to accommodate if you have curvy options which was listed on the website. i had already been to an appointment at another salon and that stylist wrote down exactly the dresses i was drawn to - at global bridal gallery they ignored these suggestions and put me in really dated stuff that had zero elements that matched my style. my bridesmaids and mom would pull stuff and i would ask to try it on and be ignored to try on something that would have looked trendy in 2002 or was way too matronly for a 25 year old. eventually, the stylist started putting me in the gowns that my entourage had picked out and they were all exactly my vibe, but the start of the appointment was so disheartening especially since i was continually giving the same feedback and it was not being listened to. additionally, the sample gowns were all pretty dirty - lots of makeup stains and some smelled bad. despite the fact that your party gets to sit in a nice, large private room to see you in gowns, they cram you into a very small fitting room to put them on which is super uncomfortable. all in all, this was not a horrible awful experience, but compared to other salons i had been to i think 3 stars sums it up. but honestly, for my fellow plus sized brides, i would not recommend visiting this salon.

Ranada Norris: My experience here was amazing. They have a good selection of dresses and they are very patient with you. The customer service here is awesome. Parking sucks so go before 2pm if possible because of location.

Bailey Keppel: SO happy I came here to find my once-in-a-lifetime dress. Maree was so sweet and pleasant to work with. More over, she was the best at listening to what I was looking for and pulling exactly what I described. Easy and fun process to make the day special

Cory Clay: My daughter is getting married in May of next year and chose this place for her dress fitting. I didn't know what to expect. We had a very high bar set by Cherry Blossom Bridal Salon that provided the dress for my middle daughter. The service was excellent and it was black owned. Sadly, it closed due to a big hit by the pandemic. Our appointment was at 1pm and we were very cheerily received by a very friendly women who led us to our private bridal fitting suite. It was a beautiful, comfortable environment and our dress fitter was equally friendly and awesome! My daughter had provided her pictures and she made some amazing selections based on what my daughter wanted. Everything she selected looked beautiful on her and she respected her budgetary restraints as well. Another party was due in at 2pm and arrived about 10minutes early but our attendant never rushed us or made us feel like we needed to be concerned about time as an issue. We were all so pleased and happy with Global Bridal Gallery and I highly recommend it! By the way, the pictures shown here are not the dress that she finally selected in case her fiance` sees this!

Rosalin's Bridal Boutique: what do users think?


Kristine Maraan: I went to Rosalin’s Bridal Boutique for my dress fitting and it was such a great experience! They asked for examples of what kind of dress I was looking for and they had so many different options available to try on that were similar to what I was envisioning. I found THE dress during that first appointment. They were so accommodating with all the alterations and by the end, my dress fit me PERFECTLY. I could not have been happier with how it fit. I felt like an absolute princess on my wedding day!

Abigail Lacy: Rosalin’s may not come with all the frills of some of the fancier shops, but they are in no short supply of amazing dresses, kindness, good advice, reasonable prices and an amazing seamstress. (Found my dress here cheaper than elsewhere) PLUS they were supportive of my customization requests (the thin belt) and showed me different, creative ways to tie the bow (like in the front rather than back). They were flexible with appointments and communicated clear and easy.

Rebecca Fleeman: Went to 4 bridal shops with my mom, sister, and future mother in law and Rosalin's was by far the best experience we had that day! She carefully curated dresses for me before arriving, and added more as I explained more details. She was right on the money with what I had sent her from my pinterest board before coming. She was so kind and we felt so welcomed and comfortable. She knew how to pin a dress well so that we could see how the fit should look and she was very helpful in explaining different styles. 10/10 would recommend every bride look here!
Response: Thank you for the kind words!

Elizabeth Jackson: I had my eye on a few specific gowns for my vow renewal, so I made an appointment to try them on. When I got in, my consultant greeted me, took me to my fitting room and we just got right to work! It was both productive and super fun! It didn't feel like a chore at all, that's how fun my lady was. When my selected gown didn't work out, my consultant was quick to pull similar styles. We just clicked if that makes sense. After about 5 gowns, I found the one I wanted. AND it was on sale, which was super awesome. I really appreciated how fun and warm the experience was. That's how it should be. Thank you ladies!

Samantha C: I really enjoyed my experience at Rosalin's. They were very friendly and patient as I decided what style I preferred. I ended up choosing my dress on my first appointment and they were extremely accommodating with the alterations I wanted to make to the dress. I highly recommend visiting this boutique if you're looking for a dress!

Kelsey Prima: I've LOVED both of my visits! Knowledgeable staff, and I genuinely had fun. Dresses were affordable, and I'm still amazed how my consultant had pulled dress after dress that I absolutely loved based on one picture of a dress I liked. Halfway through my first appointment, after listening to what I liked and didn't like about the dresses, she ran off into the racks and pulled the perfect dress that I ended up buying. Can't recommend enough!

Dottie Kramer: I wish this had been my first stop of the day. This was the only boutique that asked me for my Pinterest inspiration and pulled dresses for me before I got there. They pulled my dream dress immediately and at no point did I feel pressured to buy anything or go over budget. They were so sweet, the staff was kind, and I felt like they knew me and what I wanted so quickly, the whole process was a breeze. They were transparent about everything (cost, wait times, etc.) Cannot WAIT for my dress to come in.

Juliet Aimée Joly Webb: Hello everyone, I had two excellent experiences at Roslin's! I found the PERFECT wedding dress with my friend Emily, Maggie Sotaro's Paisley Louise dress in ivory. It was the wrong size (12), but all the helpers at Rosalin's were incredible helpful, patient and kind. I ended up finding the same dress in an 8 at another store, and when I came back to try it on again with my aunt, I realized the minimal alterations of the same dress elsewhere made the most sense for me. But I wanted to leave a review because everyone at Rosalin's made me feel welcomed, helped, and beautiful. They even cut the price for me by ~$200. I found the perfect dress in their boutique, and they gave me their full attention and generosity. Thank you to everyone at Rosalin's! My wedding day was so perfect and I am now very happily married. :D

Jessica Yellowitz: Rosalin’s was by far my favorite bridal shop experience. They had a great variety of dresses, and knew exactly what I wanted. I found my dress here after looking at two other places first. Save yourself the hassle and go to Rosalin’s first! I worked with Veronica and Rosita and they were just lovely and they helped me find my dream dress. Can’t say enough great things about this place!

Heather Foss: This little boutique is the most darling place! When attempting to schedule locations to search for my wedding dress during COVID-19 this location was one of the only ones doing in person. The staff wore masks during the entire session and maintained COIVD-19 safety precautions. My bridesmaid and myself also wore masks during the session. I went in thinking I already decided on a dress, however, I am glad I listened to the wonderful ladies at Rosalin’s and tried on a more formfitting gown. While I tried on many gowns, the one they recommend as well as my bridesmaid is the dress I choose. I also managed to stay under budget! They seriously have dresses for everyone! Overall the experience was wonderful and I would recommend any bride looking for a dress visit this boutique!

House of Jonlei Atelier: what do users think?


Shavonne Perry: BEWARE! They have HORRIBLE customer service!! Not ideal for weddings and proms if you want to guarantee you will have the dress you want in time!!! They do not allow refunds!! Us Bridesmaids decided to get our dresses here. They did not measure everyone correctly first off. We ordered the dresses months in advance. Some paid for their dresses in full. During those months she was not responsive, she didn't call the bride back for months. Other people had to call the shop for her to answer. The day our dresses were supposed to be there for our dress fitting (with people coming from out of town), they were not there yet and she didn't communicate that to anybody. The bride's grandmother had to call her that week and she finally answered. Even though the bride had just called right before that and left a message and the shop told her she was unavailable. Finally, the one time she called the bride back, she told the bride that the dresses would not be delivered until a week before the wedding, and that was not guaranteed. So, we had to come up with a plan B. They offered her some dresses from their warehouse which was unacceptable and nothing like the original dress. We ended up getting dresses off the rack at David's Bridal, which matched the color and original style (which had excellent customer service and was very helpful!). When the bride asked for a refund for those dresses (when did still did not have them), the owner stated that we signed agreements that did not allow for refunds. Only two bridesmaids has signed agreements. The other 4 bridesmaids (including myself) had never seen or signed such agreement. She still refused to give a refund for our dresses. DO NOT SHOP HERE! Save your money and patience. :)

Danaeka Wilkes: I am the bride and my bridesmaids decided to get their dresses from this shop. This has been the worst experience that i ever had. Their staff is uninformed and appears to be inexperienced. They didn’t appropriately measure my bridal party, they ordered the dresses in sizes too large, and they up charged for a unnecessary rush delivery. They didn’t contact us once the dresses were back, my maid of honor had to call to see if they were returned yet. I am actually advising my bridal party not to get the alterations done with them. This nightmare is not over, hopefully we can pick up the dresses and go on our merry way. If you want to enjoy your bridal experience, run away from this shop, fast. I would give them less that one star, but this application won’t let me.

Mia Laze: I am paying for my dress and service. I don’t get why I was treated like they were doing me a favor. 1. I am a dress size 6 and the lady insisted j order a 12 saying I might gain weight between now and then 2. The alteration was almost 1000$ and I asked an estimate just so I know before my alteration appointment... u know just a ball park. This number was just dropped on me and I was in shock. 3. After all of this was done I had to go and pick up my dress. I cancelled the appointment twice Because I had other things to take care of that were urgent and the other time I just forgot. The lady had the audacity to tell me if I cancelled anymore I can not pick up my dress!! Lol I paid over 2000 dollars for this and all you had to do was hold it for me. The alteration lady was awesome tho

Monique Wise: I believe myself and the entire wedding party that I was a part of were provided dresses of the wrong size. I provided my measurements which I can admit may seem like a different size, but when I wrote that I am a dress size 4 I should have never been provided with a size 10. In addition to the hundreds I spent on the dress I then had to go spend a substantial amount to get the dress altered to actually fit me. All of this was after being shoo'd out of the store after picking up the dress because an appointment to pick up (what's the point?) is different than an appointment to try on a dress. There was one person in the boutique and I still wasn't allowed into the empty dressing rooms after paying for my dress. I would never recommend this place to anyone!

Tracy Clark: My daughter was told at the last minute that she couldn't get the prom dress she wanted and placed a deposit on months in advance. So we had to choose from something she was not that excited about and the company didn't even give some discount from their mishap.

Rachel Dance: My sister called over a week ahead to schedule an appointment based on the employee on the phone stating that they had a specific Pronovias gown. She had difficulty finding this specific gown all over the DC area, and was excited to finally have an appointment to try it on. She called again the day before to confirm they had the gown, and was told yes they did. The first thing the employee in this shop did that 'greeted us' was scold us immediately for having drinks. We had no problem putting our drinks out, but that's no way to greet a bride and her family when they're preparing to drop a significant amount of money in your shop. She then proceeded to open the dressing room door to show my sister the gowns she pulled, and the gown my sister called twice about was not in the room. When we asked about the dress, she asked to see a photo because she said she wasn't familiar with the dress. My sister pulled up a photo from their website of the dress, and she said 'oh yeah, I think we might have had that but maybe we sold it'. My sister then proceeded to tell her that she called yesterday and whoever was on the phone confirmed they had the dress in the store. She said she would look into it and went into their office. When she came out she said 'okay let's get to trying these on'. She said nothing about the dress in question, did not help my sister see what the long sleeve dresses would look like on her arms until prompted multiple times by family members and my sister. When we left there was no 'so sorry we couldn't help, or thanks for coming'. Nothing. My sister left crying at how disrespected and mislead she felt. I would never recommend this shop and their unhelpful staff , especially to someone trying to find a wedding gown for one of the most important days in their lives.

Brandon Jones: If I could give this business a negative one star I would. Their behavior was horrible!!!!!!! From the owner to the staff. The owner lost his objectivity and berated me as a customer after my complaint. I had a horrible experience at this store. Following my terrible experience I spoke with the owner only for him to add insult to injury by defending the negative behavior and poor attitude of his staff. He offered one excuse after another, and as a matter of fact the owner stated, that he felt that his employees "deserved a pat on the back" in response to my complaint of the horrible customer service that I received. This store did not value my business and made no apologies for the terrible treatment that my daughter and I received from their store. Their lack of care and poor customer service has caused my daughter to now be without a wedding veil and her wedding day is fast approaching. We should have been aware of this possibility ahead of time. We selected the veil at the time we selected the dress and if there was a danger in the veil not being able to arrive on time for the wedding date we should have been told. We were told that we had time to order the veil and that the worst case scenario would be that we would be able to purchase the store sample. We expected more but we have learned a valuable lesson. We should have read the reviews before we selected this vendor to purchase my daughter's Pronovias wedding gown. If I ever have to purchase another Pronovias dress I will contact them directly to have them recommend another one of their vendors. Always go where your business is valued and my business was not valued at this store.

Keila White: I was so nervous about finding a wedding dress, especially during a pandemic, but the consultants here are so friendly and supportive. They helped me find a dress that I love.

Laura Leonardi: The best dress shopping experience . The warm friendly expert advice finding the most beautiful dress for your special occasion. The appointment is all about you. Well worth the visit.

cassidy killith: i got my bridesmaid dresses here. they made the process so seamless since a lot of my friends and family lived across the country. I am just grateful that i don't have to deal with it and all the bm dresses came out from the same dye lot. thank you sooooo much!

Love Couture Bridal: what do users think?


Kate Beacom: I think I want to move into the Love Couture Bridal salon! Every aspect of my experience was absolutely amazing and beautifully thought through. You can really tell they take pride in the details and quality of their work. Their team and my experience in the salon were hands down my favorite part of my wedding planning process. I would do it 100 times over! Their entire team was so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Lalique was my stylist and she helped me to pick out the dress of my dreams. She made sure my opinion was heard but also made some excellent recommendations for dresses that I would have otherwise not picked for myself. She is so talented! The ordering process was a breeze, we even got to pop a bottle of bubbly in the salon once I said yes to the dress! The dress and accessories I ordered came in on time and in perfect condition. I highly recommend using their in-house tailoring services. They know those gowns inside and out, better than any other seamstress could ever do. My seamstress was a savior and made my dress fit like a glove. I felt so confident in the dress all day. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this bride feel like royalty!
Response: Thank you for the kind words! We loved working with you and hope we made your gown process special 💗

Kelsey Griswold: If you're a DC area bride and Love Couture has designers or styles you're interested in, don't hesitate to make an appointment! I was referred by multiple friends, and when I saw they were having a Blue Willow by Anne Barge trunk show, I jumped at the first available appointment. Prior to the appointment, they called to get an idea of the particular dresses and styles I might be interested in trying, and once we arrived they had already pulled the dresses and similar styles so that I could get a could get into the first one upon arrival. Since I was the last appointment of the day during covid, I had two ladies helping and providing necessary feedback - the experience was super relaxing and even though I purchased my dress that day, I never felt pressured to make a purchase. I also purchased an Anne Barge veil in a separate appointment as well, and it was so fun to have the ladies helping me try on all the veils in my dress! I love that they have seamstresses in house since who better knows the dresses, designers, and fabrics? I lost a lot of weight prior to beginning my fittings and Val did amazing work to make the dress fit me and help me feel confident moving in it. I cannot recommend using their seamstresses enough, it's so reassuring!
Response: We are so happy to hear about your positive experience! Thank you for the kind words and congratulations on the beautiful wedding

Deb Stull: I am so happy I went with Love Couture. India nailed it when I sent her inspiration for the dress I as looking for. After going to other shops I came back and went with the very first dress I tried on. And I ended up staying under my budget and getting the perfect dress.
Response: Thank you for letting us know about your experience! We are honored to have been a part of your special day. Congratulations!

Claire Meltzer: I am in the middle of preparing for my wedding and I have chosen my dress from Love Couture with the help of Taylor! I was very nervous being a plus size bride, but she was very helpful and made me feel extremely comfortably when trying on dresses. I am looking forward to the next stage of alterations. The entire store is very communicative and open to phone calls and emails. The hours for stopping in is also a plus! Being open on a Sunday and late evenings is amazing. Thank you all for your continued support during this exciting time.
Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, Claire!

Stephanie Tan: Amazing dress shopping experience at Love Couture! My friend found her dress and the appointment was not rushed. Lalique listened to what my friend was looking for and patiently helped my friend to create her dream dress.

Kristin Schallhorn: I had high expectations for Love Couture Bridal based on reviews both online and from acquaintances, but they were still exceeded! Taylor was my stylist and she was an absolute joy. I feel like she really understood what I was looking for in a way that stylists that I worked with at other salons didn't. On top of helping me find my dream dress, she also made the experience really fun. I'm almost sad that I found my dress because I want to come in for another appointment!

Daphnee D: I absolutely love love couture bridal. The shop is gorgeous, it smells amazing, and they have a wide variety of wedding gowns. I was super duper discouraged while looking for a wedding gown, but Lalique turned it around for me. So thankful for love couture bridal!
Response: Thanks so much, Daphnee!

Jennifer Bennour: Love Couture Bridal is truly the dream wedding dress shop experience. As a wedding planner, I've had the pleasure of accompanying multiple brides to their appointments here, and the staff is not only knowledgeable on fit and styles, but also full of amazing suggestions to take their bridal look to the next level. GM Lalique is the sweetest! Highly recommend making this your first stop on your journey for your dream dress!
Response: Thank you Jennifer! We take pride in our salon and giving our brides the best gown experience!

Olivia Prinzi: We loved every second of our experience with Ronicka and the Love Couture Bridal team. From start to finish, my mom and I felt like we were trying dresses on in our own home. I arrived nervous that I wasn't going to find the dress (wedding dress shopping has been tough for me, I'm super picky and never felt like myself in any of the dresses I was trying on), but with the positive vibes, good energy and comforting feeling from Ronicka and the team, we found the dress!
Response: Thank you Olivia!

Brianna Miller: As much as I love shopping, I've never enjoyed trying on clothes. When it came time to hunt for a wedding dress, I knew it would be challenging. I went to multiple shops, tried on gazillions of dresses. Most places made me feel like they didn't care about helping find the dress I really loved, but rather just making the sale. Lalique at Love Couture was amazing, really listened to me, and truly made the experience enjoyable. She made it feel like I was shopping with a good friend, and there was no pressure to buy anything right away. Plus, the shop is clean and beautiful!!
Response: We are thrilled to hear that you had such a great experience at Love Couture!

Say Yes For Less: what do users think?


Yolande S: My daughter went to this store last year. She did not find her fit but the experience with the owner Pamela was beyond 5 stars. Based on my daughter's curves, Pamela recommended a dress style that unfortunately she did not carry at the moment. I did appreciate her honesty and like another reviewer said: she is not trying to sell you a dress. Rather to advise you. If she carries it, sure it is a sale, if not, nobody wastes time. Unfortunately, so many bridal stores try to make you buy their dresses. Pamela, my daughter and I left your store with your best advice. She found her fit in another store based on your advice and recommendations. You educated us this day. Pamela did even gave us addresses of some stores that did carry my daughter's wedding dress style. Beyond 5 stars.

Samantha Stadler: Just had an appointment and it was less than an ideal situation. The staff and owner were fairly friendly and we were the only ones in the store so the experience felt very personalized. We were greeted right away by our consultant. She was pleasant but I was a bit surprised she didn’t want to see any inspiration photos and instead just said I could tell her what I liked. The appointment unfortunately only lasted about 30 minutes because of a pretty poor plus sized selection. Out of what looked like a fairly extensive collection in the store turned out to be only 1 rack of about 10 dresses. I guess this kind of explains why she didn’t need to see much inspiration. I am a street size 16/18. I was able to pull about 3 or 4 dresses and I fit pretty well but none of them were what I was looking for. The owner came with one more for me to try which was nice. I did like it more than I thought but it wasn’t the one. The consultant gave me a name of a plus sized store to try and told me to focus on finding places that would have my size. I appreciated all the help and the hospitality but I would have preferred to be given a heads up of the selection and maybe I would have gone somewhere else or at least gone in with an expectation.

Sharon Santiago: Wonderful bridal salon!!! Pamela is friendly, knowledgeable and values your time. Some bridal shops need to sell you a dress. Pamela creates the experience of Saying Yes to the Dress by listening to the bride and delivering an awesome bridal experience. Thank you Pamela, my daughter has her beautiful wedding gown.

Miriam White: A great selection of gowns for reasonable prices. They do a really good job of making sure you only look at sizes that work for you since it is sample sale only. Their seamstress is also amazing and does beautiful work to make your dress fantastic for your wedding day.

Jennifer Buchheister: I HIGHLY recommend Pamela and Say Yes For Less. I was looking for a designer dress at a more affordable price, and I found it in my exact size! Talk about destiny right? I live a good distance away, but even if I hadn't gone for something specific, I would have found I gown I love. Also Pamela makes it so easy and doesn't push you into something you don't want. We LOVED her!

Alice H Abboud Chalhoub: Pamela and Connie are amazing! This was the first (and only) bridal store I visited and I highly recommend it. I was immediately greeted by Pamela and her staff making me feel very welcomed and excited about the experience. They helped me browse the many beautiful and affordable dresses they had. I appreciated Pamela’s honest opinion which helped me narrow down my many options. I bought my dress that day (in Jan 2021) and canceled all of my other bridal store appointments because I felt very happy with my dress and it was very convenient that Connie could do my alterations in June, which gave me plenty of time to be ready for my Aug 2021 wedding. I tried my dress yesterday, a week before my wedding, and it didn’t close right. I was freaking out and called Pamela, she told me to come when I was available and I did today. Connie and her showed my mother and I how to close it properly and it fit right, just like it did when she did the initial alterations which only took her two weeks. Thank you!!
Response: Thank you Alice! Have a wonderful wedding, you look beautiful. Pamela

Ashlynn Klicka: From the second we walked in, the employees were aggressive, rude, and didn’t listen to what the bride said she wanted. The negative attitude was tangible and the passive aggressive comments were a little much. It felt like we were doing something wrong by saying we had looked at other places and had an idea of what the bride wanted. When the bride tried dresses on when and said she didn’t like something, they were defensive and acted personally offended. What a terrible experience. The bride felt uncomfortable and that is completely unacceptable. Thankfully this was not the first shop we went to, because if it was, the bride would have been extremely discouraged.

sanam lodin: Let’s start off by saying everything happens for a reason! I had bought my original wedding dress from another shop in the area. Two weeks before my wedding day I had my final fitting. The seamstress did a horrible job fitting the dress to my body shape. She completely altered the style of my dress and it just didn’t look right on me. After google searching bridal shops in the area to find a dress in such a short timeframe, I found Pamela’s bridal shop and called her right away. I explained my situation to her & She scheduled an appointment for me the next day. She pulled out all the dresses for me and believe it or not she had the same exact wedding dress in stock and in my size!!! I couldn’t believe I came across the same wedding dress. It didn’t need much altering except for hemming which was done perfectly. Pamela even went out of her way to sell my original wedding dress for me in her shop. I can’t thank her enough for saving me from such a nightmare!
Response: Sanam you were a dream to work for! Thank you for such a great review. Pamela

Brooke Miller: I cannot say enough wonderful things about Pamela and Say Yes for Less. I began my wedding dress search by going to all of the shops in DC and the suburbs, but was having a very hard time finding something that I truly loved in my budget (~$4k). A neighbor told me about SYFL and thank goodness she did! My experience with Pamela was refreshing. She was very honest, down to earth, and not pushy or overly sweet like some stylists at other shops had been. She has a great eye for what will fit your body (and budget) and it is clear that she has a ton of experience in the industry. The shop is meticulously clean and organized with large dressing rooms. Pamela has a large selection of beautiful veils and bridal jewelry as well. All of the dresses look brand new and have been professionally cleaned. There certainly is not patio furniture inside as another reviewer mentioned—there are adorable wrought iron tables and chairs for plenty of seating if friends or family come along. Since she sees customers by appointment only, I was always given complete and undivided attention. While the concept is designer dresses at a fraction of the price, I never once felt as if I was in a discount shop. I ended up purchasing a Vera Wang gown that still sells for full price! I also completed my alterations with Pamela and Connie, which was another great experience. Connie is skilled, professional, and completed all of my alterations with one visit. I have been raving about SYFL to everyone I know getting married and I can’t wait to wear my dress next month!

Samira Rezahi: Walking into the store, I was immediately greeted by Pamela. She had such a warm, welcoming yet loving personality that made me feel very comfortable. She was able to listen and show me available styles for my wedding dress. Even though I didn't purchase any items she was able to search via styles for me from other stores. She called as promised with a response and I am so grateful for her. I did purchase accessories and so happy with the customer service and will inform all of my future bridal friends to shop with her!

White Swan Bridal: what do users think?


Abbie Hibsch: White Swan is a hidden gem! Definitely go here. They carry some unique designers that aren't common around here. Something that made White Swan stand out is that they give you more privacy than other boutiques! They don't go into the dressing room with you and allow you to change by yourself, which I loved. The staff was incredibly kind and several different consultants helped me throughout the appointment, which allowed me to have all of my questions answered and get lots of opinions.

Robert Ferretti: White Swan Bridal has a wonderful selection of mother of bride/groom dresses. They treat their customers like gold and operate with integrity and strong business ethics. Anna, the owner, is very professional and has her customer's best interests at heart, going above and beyond to make sure that you are happy. Maia and Monireh were delightful and knowledgeable to work with. Customer service is a top priority at White Swan Bridal. I highly recommend them!

Cyndy Ferretti: Early my post came in as Robert. White Swan Bridal is tops at customer service. Anna, the owner, always has her customers best interests at heart and operates her business with integrity and strong business ethics. The selection for mother of the bride/groom dresses is great. Maia and Monirah are a delight to work with. I highly recommend White Swan Bridal!

Katie Ellis: The dresses at this store are beautiful and the staff is awesome. The seamstress is very talented. Anna and her team are dedicated to making sure the brides feel special and beautiful. 100% recommend. I can't wait to wear my dress!

Chelsea Mendonca: White Swan Bridal was easily the best bridal boutique I’ve been to. The staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. The wedding gowns there are beyond gorgeous. I found the dress of my dreams there and the wonderful women who assisted me Moia and Anna very extremely helpful without being pushy. They also managed to get my dress altered within a day on a holiday. The seamstress was very kind and did a wonderful job. Overall I’m extremely happy with the quality of dresses and the customer service provided. Highly recommend.

Kristy & Jack Roszel: The women at Swan Bridal are amazing! My sister had a dress emergency created by a less experienced shop. Not only did they offer her multiple alternatives to her original dress but they went above an beyond to help fix the original dress she loved. They not only fixed the issues but made the dress more perfect then we could even imagine. Thank you for saving the day with the wedding being only 2 weeks away. Swan Bridal has a beautiful selection of dresses but more importantly they represent everything a business should be putting the customer first event step of the way.

Isabelle Herondale: Let me start by saying the consultant (Karika?) was great: very accommodating and sweet. She did her best to make this a good experience. You should know that the bridal shop is small. There is one 2 sided mirror which has a large open side and a side almost shoved against a bridal rack. As there was a bride and flower girls getting a fitting on the other side we were on the small side (understandable just felt a bit cramped like I had to avoid stepping on dresses to move around the bride) but we were moved once they were gone. The selection of gowns were beautiful however there is only one of each and they all are typical mannequin size unless you go through the clearance rack. If you have or are a larger bride please keep this in mind. This brings me to the real problem, the reason this store could've had a better review and now I just have to advise brides to be wary of this place or just stay away: the older woman. Idk if she is a manager or the owner but she couldn't have been more uncouth. This woman was very happy to help the other bride and seemed very helpful to her but for us she ruined the experience. My sister was in her first dress and wasn't quite feeling it so we were trying to figure out what she does and doesn't like. This woman comes up asking what's wrong with the dress and just seems rushed and unimpressed. She pulls a dress that she liked and closer to what the bride wanted and was quickly ushered into the dressing room. She then whispered something in a snarky tone RIGHT outside the changing room. While I didn't here it the bride couldn't help it and it was something to the nature of "She's just too big for any of our dresses." I think our associate caught it as she went into customer service overload but damage was done. We walked out knowing we wouldn't go back but now had a better understanding of what the bride liked in dresses.

Heather Lockhart: This shop was the best dress shopping experience by far! I went to several shops prior to White Swan and then scheduled an hour appointment just to see if I had any interest in what they offered. The consultant had an idea of a couple dresses that would fit my preference within my budget. We started off in the clearance section (by my request) and found a few to show off to my closest relatives. My decision was tied between two of the most stunning lace dresses, I ended up running over my appointment by two hours! The owner, Mila, was so kind and allowed her consultant to continue to accommodate me. Then lo and behold I said yes to the dress!! Mila was so sweet to offer my family water and treats while they patiently waited. She also gave an unexpected discount to my hair piece and veil. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted my train to be shaped like and Mila gave me her honest opinion while still allowing an open mind. After I made my final decision, I sent the dress out for alterations (which came back right on time with more time to spare). I was very pleased with her knowledge and friendly relationship with clients. After my wedding I came back to get my dress preserved professionally. I had a few tears in my lace and stains at the base, which is pretty normal post-wedding. Mila reassuring that this was not a problem and will be fixed. The preservation of my dress came back like it had never been warn. I truly enjoyed my experience because of her and her team! I recommend this place to my friends, family and any future brides-to-be!

A&C Tuma: My wife and I both purchased our wedding dresses at White Swan. They were incredibly attentive and helped us pick out the perfect dresses to fit our very different styles. White Swan was incredibly flexible with our timelines and did a phenomenal job with all of the alterations. We can’t recommend White Swan enough!

Megan Guidi: White Swan Bridal is definitely a hidden gem! My photographer (Emily Alyssa Photography) recommended I try their shop after a series of striking out elsewhere and feeling a little defeated in my search. We had a 4-month turnaround time from engagement to wedding and I had been turned away consistently from other shops for the tight deadline (understandable, but discouraging nonetheless) WSB showed me a selection of dresses that would work within my timeline AND for a great price! I walked out the SAME DAY from their sample sale with a $500 gown that I loved more than even the $3000 gowns I had tried elsewhere! They also did my alterations in-house and did a wonderful job (added bones, some elastic, cups, and altered my veil to add a bustle). I had a great experience from start to finish and I’m looking forward to going back to them after the big day for cleaning and preservation. If you’re a bride feeling overwhelmed with the dress shopping experience, head to White Swan Bridal! They’ll make it fun, quick, and easy to find something you love. (I should also add, I came here completely alone to shop (my bridal party lived too far away to come with me) and the staff did a great job of offering supportive feedback throughout the shopping process!)

Bridals By Natalie: what do users think?


Trixie: I had a really great experience here. I did a lot of research online about what I wanted before booking an appointment. Still, they helped me try different styles to make sure I knew all my options on my first appointment. I found my dress right away. Appointments are only 45 minutes so book multiple and just come back if you want to take your time. For me, it worked well. I’m very straightforward. I just like to get things done, in and out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Alterations were perfect. Overall timeline and prices made sense. Will update with pictures after my wedding.

Elizabeth Hernandez Rodriguez: Horrible Horrible experience!!! My mom, sister, and I drove 6 hours from Charlotte, NC because they had a designer I liked. When we got there, the experience was so impersonal, unhelpful, and rushed that it didn't feel special at all. Gladys and Lourdes were rude and rushing me in and out of gowns. They did not ask questions in regards to dresses (like all the assessments bridal shops do). When I asked to try on a dress I loved, they told me I couldn't because 7 dresses was the limit. I was shocked and definitely unaware of that. If I had known that I would have not tried on a couple of bad dresses THEY recommended me to try on. I wanted to try on a couple of dresses and they did not let me because they said the cleavage was too much of what I was looking for... (What would they know what I am looking for if they didn't even asked questions throughout the 30 min I was there). Anyway.. In that rush, I found two dresses that I loved and when I asked them if I could think about it and come back they said "they closed at 3pm" When clearly the website states they close at 6:30pm. They said that so I did not have a window in between to go to a better store to see dresses. However I did. and It was COMPLETELY WORTH IT!!! I went to ELEGANCE BY ROYA!! and what a great experience!!!! Service was 100% and they let me try as many dresses as I wanted until I said YES to the DRESS!! Bridals by Natalie was a rip off as they even charged me $35 for the useless appointment and worst customer service ever!!! Gladys and Lourdes definitely need interpersonal skills because they scare excited brides away! Even though I loved a couple of their dresses, the experience was so terrible I was not going to say yes to my dress with so awful experience as it is one in a lifetime! at the end, driving 6 hours (each way) from Charlotte, NC to VA was worth it thanks to ELEGANCE BY ROYA BRIDAL STORE! **Stay away from this place if you want a good bridal experience**

Jebbeh Givens: Definitely not a good experience for me. Nothing was done to make it feel special. I am originally from the area but have relocated to another state. I was in town visiting and wanted to check out this bridal shop because they carry the designer I like. They pulled what they had and I am not sure if it was even the designer I mentioned. You pay for this appointment which they claim can go towards the dress purchased but the appointment is not setup in a manner that I think promotes even purchasing a dress. Appointments are less than an hour, 45 minutes to be exact. How are you going to have a consultation, try on dresses and purchase in 45 minutes. My appointment was scheduled back to back with another bride and at the end they rushed me out of the dress, and rushed me out the door. They did not ask me if I liked any of the dresses, no discussions were had with me about how to move forward, or if I would even care to come back, nothing. They pretty much just took my money for the appointment and did not bother to follow-up. I left there sad and frustrated. Would not recommend this place. They only reason they got 2 stars from me is because the dresses are pretty but it's unfortunate because this place did not allow me the opportunity to purchase. And thinking now, I am grateful for that because who would want to shop with such an untrustworthy brand.

Porscha Jenifer: From the first day that I googled for brides dresses I knew it was the one. Just the amazing looks that was on the website I knew I would find my dress. When I walked in I spoke with Gladys and told her exactly what I wanted and she found the perfect dress. Ladies they have tons of styles too choose from and I would recommend them every chance I get. The staff is very friendly and also are here for your needs. Please go check them out. Thanks again ladies

Sarah Omer: 1. When I was looking for different dresses after picking out 3 dresses the lady said that’s enough dresses. 2. The lady asked which one was my favorite dress after trying them all after I told her which one was my favorite dress she removed the price tag of the dress luckily I checked the price before and she tried to up the price $1000 and was trying to convince me that the price that I checked was from a different dress and I knew that I had checked that same dress because it was the only one I liked. This place is bad business don’t waste your time here you can find way better options than the dresses they have.

Irina Smolyanov: STAY AWAY, run, Never go.... I cried my eyes out... I was getting married, and I needed a dress that I would love. I live 2 1/2 hours away from Alexandria. I came with my sister to try some dresses on, I found one that I just couldn't get out of!! I requested to purchase it but it needed some alterations. Hem, covering up at the top due to my church being conservative and I needed to respect that. When I went to pay she calculated that the dress was 2,500$ with alterations. So I went ahead and paid 1,400$ at the time being and was going to come back to pay the rest at pick up time of the dress. When I came back to a dress fitting I took off work and drove 2.5 hours again. It was horrible the alteration lady was stepping all over the bottom of the dress and the little flowers she was putting on where horrible, so ugly I've never seen someone's work so horrible. I left home disappointed. The next day I called "bridal by Natalie" and told her to stop the alterations I'll find someone else, and that I was coming to pick up the dress. When I came to pick up the dress I brought a check book with me and was ready to pay for the rest of the dress minus the alterations, because nothing was really done. She told me I owed her 1,100 for the dress. I started telling her that no alterations were done therefore 1,100 minus 500 for alterations would be 600$ that I owed her. I told her that online the dress was 1,500$ in the first place. But she told me that dresses online are cheaper because they are defected and dirty.That's false advertisement... what a snake.... She looked at me with a nasty face and started raising her voice.. I requested a refund and she said no. She made me cry and walked out. I came back 20 minutes later and demanded that I pay 600$ for the dress or I'm getting a refund. So she just gave the dress to my fiancé and I paid with a debit card that I had to call a family member to send because they don't take check. Anyway worse place ever. You'll get ripped off... I went to a Russian lady and she made the dress look soooo beautiful and I trusted her because she was so involved in the process and put her ideas and asked me every little step she'd make with the dress. So Stay Away before you get hurt and miserable from those two who work there!!!

Fabi You got this girl!: I got two dresses from this store. I definitely recommend this place they have cute dresses and elegant dresses. Prices are reasonable not like other stores. Gladys and her sister definitely helped me to pick a dress and they are nice people. Thank you for your assistance.

Zeynab Es’hagh Beigi: I had an amazing Experience with the team. They were kind and try to satisfy me in anyways. The team helped me to find a right wedding dress. I tried many dresses and they pulled out as many as I asked, and they were so patient. The best thing that I liked the most was they let you have your privacy in the fitting room, because most bridal shops, they will come to the fitting room with you to help you wear the dress which sometimes is good to have some privacy. But after wearing the dress they came and help me to adjust it and make it my size with the clips. I really had good times with them and I’m happy to bought my dress with them. If you looking for a wedding dress I recommend this place.

Veronica H: I had a wonderful experience with Gladys and Lourdes. This was the first shop I went to and it shaped what I looked for in other stores after. I had an idea of what I wanted and thought would look good on me until I tried it on. The ladies there helped me figure out which type of dress was more flattering to me after I was disappointed with my initial inclinations. They brought an array of dresses which I initially hadn't even considered. They were honest about what looked best and what parts of it, etc. So, if you don't want honest feedback it might not be your kind of store, but I certainly appreciated it, especially since I was by myself. They brought dresses and put one at a time in the changing room for me while having a lineup outside for me to choose from (both that I had picked out and that they recommended). They helped me close them and pin them but did not help me put them on like other places. I personally preferred that, but I know some brides liked to be helped. I had an additional requirement which they were the MOST helpful for of all five stores I went to during my dress shopping experience. I am not looking for the most bridal gown that you end up only wearing once but for something versatile that I can convert to an evening dress for the many black-tie events in the DC area. These ladies were creative and brainstormed with me how to do that, based on their extensive experience in alterations. Besides just cutting the train, they talked about which designs were most versatile and how different textures would respond to dye, etc. No other store helped fulfill that goal like this one.

Nicole: Very disappointed; had an appointment set and confirmed with the boutique for like a month to have them call me two days before to tell me they are implementing a new policy. I asked since I already had an appointment before the new policy shouldn’t I be grandfathered into the new policy? She said let me check with my boss and I will get back with you and let you know. I said that was fine looking forward to your call. Right after I hung up the phone I got an email from them canceling my appointment. Rude. That’s how you run your business??? This is not how I would treat my customers. Not a professional business.

Lefty's Bridal & Boutique: what do users think?


Natashia Stevenson: I just picked up my wedding dress today from Lefty's and it was by far the best experience. The owner Lefty helped me from picking out my dress, trying it on, fittings, and alterations. She was so nice and made me feel comfortable every step of the way, even giving me advice. She is so professional and the whole process was seamless. She also carried dresses that appeal to woman with curves..she know what we like 👍 1.19.22- Dress was beautiful on my wedding 9.25.21 day thanks so much Lefty!!

Jessica Williams: AMAZING experience!!!!!! The owner Lefty is phenomenal! I was so stressed looking for a wedding dress for my special day. She was extremely nice and beyond helpful. The dresses in her shop are gorgeous. I’ve been to David’s Bridal and another bridal shop but I hadn’t found that wow dress. I was honestly super stressed since I had been looking and hadn’t come across anything I loved yet. I’m going to the justice of the peace and having a big wedding later. I purchased my dress for the justice of the peace today from her and I’m beyond thrilled!!!!! Her bridal shop is beautiful, the dresses are beautiful, and she is super helpful in any questions you may have about alterations for your dress. If I could give more than 5 stars for this review I would! If your looking for a wedding dress I highly recommend Lefty’s Bridal & Boutique. I will be back to get my dress for the bigger wedding!

Lauren Collins: I initially went to Marys Bridal, after paying $2,699 for a dress that I never received. I went to Lefty’s, Lefty had the same dress for $1500. Lefty was patient and worked with me, at that point I was 4 months out from my wedding she showed me dresses that could arrive in time and didn’t pressure me. It was a completely different experience than at Marys Bridal. I highly recommend Lefty’s, she was professional and didn’t try to overcharge me. She ordered the dress in the correct size so I needed no alterations just a bustle. A true business with integrity. I appreciate you Lefty!

Andrea Conway: Lefty's was such a great experience. I have to admit that I searched online to find my prefect dress prior to going but Ms. Lefty did not disappoint. She fitted me and helped me try on so many different styles. I couldn't help but say "Yes!' to the dress. She was very knowledgeable without being pushy or overbearing. The boutique was empty and had been sanitized prior to my arrival. I felt safe and well taken care of as I prepare for my big day.

Tamika F: I recently visited Lefty’s boutique and had a very pleasant experience. I came with an image of my ideal wedding dress and Lefty was able to provide a range of dresses that closely resembled what I am looking for. Lefty’s presentation was professional and welcoming. She paid close attention to the areas I want to highlight as well as those areas I want to hide. She suggested things that I wouldn’t have even considered. The final dress I tried on was the winner; yet the most expensive and far beyond the budget I intend to pay. I was fully aware of the pricing prior to my appt; however, I do not believe you have to over extend your budget to have the wedding dress you desire. I appreciate the experience and will venture to a few more wedding vendors prior to finalizing my decision.

Erica Jones: The shop owner was patient and professional as I looked through the online catalog for a dress to wear for my pre-wedding photo shoot. After searching for about 30mins I ended up going with one of her in store suggestions which fit me perfectly and looked BEAUTIFUL

Sharra: I purchased a gown in October of 2020. I was told my gown would arrive in March, I didn't receive a call. After reaching out to the shop multiple times I finally received a call back early April saying the dress was ready for pickup so I scheduled alternation's for late April. Once the alteration appointment was completed they said they would call me and let me know when to pick up, mind you my wedding is June 19, 2021. As suspected they never called therefore I called on June 3 and was told to come June 10. Since I didn't receive a time and everything is done by appointment due to Covid, I called on the 9th to confirm she (Lefty owner) says come in today. I arrived and she drastically messed up my alterations. Originally she was just supposed to take up the bust and let out the hips instead she took in the sides or she didn't measure properly. Not only did she not admit to her mistake she then insinuates I gained weight and I had a week to "lose more". Instead of rectifying her mistake she offers me a veil for 30%. Pictures below me with the bush is when I went for alterations in April. The bun pictures is when I picked up my gown on June 9. Judging by my waist, back, and arms I believe it is clear I've lost weight. It is clear she touched the waist line of the dress. If you purchase your gown from here I'd advise you find a honest and knowledgeable seamstress. UPDATE: Picked up my dress Thursday my wedding was on that Saturday. Lefty puts it on me but didn't hook it I got home SAME DAY to find I didn't have a hook. Absolutely ridiculous service my dress didn't fit wedding day it was still to large in the breast which was the ONLY part of the dress that needed alterations. Overall terrible experience. She never apologized nor acknowledged the fact I left her shop after paying thousands of dollars I left dissatisfied. There was no compensation or anything just terrible service and an even worse attitude. Luckily pictures tell the truth! Look how big it is on my bust!! If you get your dress from here avoid Lefty and DO NOT LET THEM DO YOUR ALTERATIONS

Tiffany A: I know this is a late review but I got married in October of 2016. I went to go look for dresses in January and this was Lefty's previous location in the Boulevard in Largo MD. I must say, the first gown I tried on, was immaculate. I tried on other dresses after and once I finished, I kept focusing on the first gown and that was my decision! Lefty treated me like her own daughter and her daughters are amazing and work hard to make you feel beautiful and prep you for your big day! Thank you guys so much!!!!!

Aftan Sylvester: I took my mom here to look for mother of the bride gowns and the service that we received from Lefty (the owner) was horrible. She was very curt with us, and kept mentioning that she had a master's degree in fashion design (I have no idea why she felt the need to keep repeating that). I asked if she had any plus sized samples, and she said that designers don't make plus sized samples. I was confused, because they have whole plus size bridal boutiques that have plus sized samples...The entire experience made my mother and I very uncomfortable, and we could not get out of there fast enough. They don't have to worry about ever seeing me again.

Asia: Brides and Bridesmaids beware!!! I just returned from my honeymoon and couldn’t wait to get back to write this review. I just got married last month and a year ago started my wedding process of finding dresses for my bridesmaids. Nine month before the wedding I came to Lefty’s to look at the dresses for the girls and 2 weeks later the girls came to try on the samples she had in stock. We selected the dresses to order and took pictures to make sure the fit and quality matched what we ordered. She told us it was too soon to order to come back in February to take measurements and then order because the turn around time is only 3 months at the most. So we scheduled our appointment in early February, 30 minutes before the appointment she called and said she will not be there because she’s at the hospital with her daughter and her mom will be there instead to take the measurements. We understood and continued with our appointment. My bridesmaid and I felt she was taking the measurements too big but trust her professional opinion. Fast forward to the last week in June we get a call (4 months almost 5) the dresses were there and we can come try them on. The dresses were poorly made, very cheap, and definitely not the same material and structure of the dresses we tried on. She said her seamstress could fix the dresses and they will look better when she was done so she pinned every dress and we scheduled an appointment with the seamstress. Still trusting this so called “professional “. We met with the seamstress and she ensure us the dresses will be fixed. We are 1 week away from my wedding and I’m panicking so we pick up the dresses from the seamstress and they worse than before. I’m in tears because I trusted this lady to give us the same quality as she has in her showroom. My wedding party and I meet with lefty to try to resolve this issue since were too close to my wedding date. She offers no refund and makes excuses as to why the dresses came out the way the did. She disrespected some of my bridesmaids saying their weight and body shape makes the dresses look horrible and I told her the quality and material of the dress is from China and very poorly made. Her seamstress cussed me out it was a mess. We went back and forth for 1 hour with nothing resolved and her not accepting any responsibility in why my dresses are horribly made. We left and went to David’s Bridal and they had the same color dresses in different styles. They had all my girls sizes and they looked amazing just in time for my wedding day. If you want rude, unprofessional, china-made dresses, extremely late turn around time come here they will not disappoint!!!!

BHLDN: what do users think?


Brianna Moreno: I had an awesome experience here. Brettney was delightful to work with! She was kind, patient, and catered to my exact style and preferences! While I did not ultimately get my wedding dress from here, I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a positive wedding dress shopping experience!

Lizette R: Everything about my experience was 5 star worthy. Loved the online reservation that allowed me to pick all the dresses online ahead of time. A lot of additional options to choose from in the store too My stylist, Liz, was a dream. She never tried to upsell me. She was present, patient and asked questions about the venue and my groom to help give good feedback on dress styles. She had a list of place ready to go to refer me for my fitting. She even helped select my crown. Liz made my day I even teared up in the store. Thank you Liz and BHLDN Bethesda for helping me pick the most important dress of my life

Jane Lyons: I had a great time working with Charlotte who made me feel very comfortable while trying on wedding dresses! This was the sixth wedding dress shop I'd been to (I know) and a top tier experience. There aren't a ton of dress options, but the ones that are there are very beautiful. Unlike other bridal shops, you can look online before you go to see if they have dresses you're interested in. Also, many other shops take 6-7 months to get you your dress whereas BHLDN only takes a month or less. However, there will be other brides in the shop trying on dresses at the same time, so it's not an exclusive experience. Even though I didn't end up selecting a dress from BHLDN (I went will a dress from a previous shop), I'd still recommend BHLDN to a friend.

Jessica Carns: Iris was a wonderful consultant. My brother is getting married and I scheduled an appointment for my mother to find a dress. She listened carefully, researched all the options available, stayed within price point preference, and provided input on fit and sizing. We found a dress and the other team members were equally helpful during the purchasing process. Finding mother of the bride/ groom dresses can be difficult and they made it such an easy, enjoyable process. My mom left with a huge smile and is so excited for her dress to arrive!

Courtney Elam: I much preferred when this shop had its own location. It feels cramped and a bit less special of an experience with people casually shopping around you. Dresses were stunning and good quality, but lacked options for more petite brides.

Samantha Bennett: I had a wonderful experience finding my wedding dress here in fall 2021! Both appointments went smoothly (the first was to try a bunch of dresses on, the second was to narrow it down between two options) and the staff were helpful. My dress was backordered so shipping took awhile, but I knew that when I ordered it. Super happy with my dress for my May wedding!

Ali Ruth: I was really pleased with my recent BHLDN appointment with Brettney as my stylist. I liked that this was a low-stress environment for looking at wedding dresses - I had time to browse on my own and pick out what I liked but also had help with trying on the dresses and received useful advice on different fabric options, tailoring options, and accessories. I would definitely recommend making an appointment here.

Elin Hamalainen: I had the best wedding dress experience with Megan :) She made me feel comfortable, beautiful and excited to wear the dress we picked out. She’s an angel and a master, I highly recommend her and BHDLDN for the perfect dress buying experience. Thank you Megan!

Worldly Wander: I had a great experience with the stylist, Larissa, at this location. She was super knowledge and flexible! Thanks for an awesome appointment.

Danielle Demers: I was in a complete last minute tailspin over a bad dress alteration job and booked an appointment at BHLDN in Bathesda. Megin was a literal angel from heaven, an amazing calming presence in my panic. She listened, she pulled dresses that I loved, and while I didn't wind up going with anything from here, I would 100% recommend adding this to your list of places to wedding dress shop!

The Bridal Room: what do users think?


Jenn Lee: If only I could add more than 5 stars for this review! If you decide (which you obviously should!) to stop by The Bridal Room for your wedding dress shop ask for Rachel! I honestly had no hopes since my budget was low and I was not successful so far. The one dress that I tried one and loved was out of my price range. However, even with my budget Rachel went above and beyond to help me find a dress! She even sent me links to dress that she thought I would love. She was so nice and tried her hardest to make sure I was going to find my dress. I just could not stop thinking about that one dress. I contacted Rachel and asked if she could help me with the price for that dress. She was amazing and was able to offer the dress for less and I immediately ran back to tried it on again. It was hanging, all ready for me, and was even prettier the second time! Run to The Bridal Room to find your wedding dress!!

Mary Monagle: I had the absolute best experience at the Bridal Room and with our consultant Rachel! She was so patient and helpful and made the entire dress shopping process so fun!!! It genuinely felt like she was invested in helping me find a dress I love and she was so happy for me when I said yes to the dress! I went to lots of different stores to try on wedding dresses and without a doubt my best experience was at the Bridal Room. They were so easy to work with, responsive to my emails when I had questions after my first visit, and so understanding when I had to postpone my second appointment multiple times! I cannot wait for my dress to arrive!! I’m so thankful i said yes to the dress at the Bridal Room!

Laura Funk: Long overdue review! I bought my dress from the Bridal Room back in 2018 for our wedding in 2019. I had an amazing experience with my mom, sister and best friend. We were the only customers in the store which made it feel very personal. Heba actually picked out the very first dress I tried on and I fell in love/kept comparing it to all the other dresses I tried on after. It was a style I wasn’t initially leaning toward, I am so happy she pulled it for me - she knows what she’s doing! She also made sure I didn’t go over my budget on all the dresses I tried on which I really appreciated. Great experience from start to finish - including the alteration team. Thank you so much!
Response: Thank you Laura for the taking the time to review us since your wedding. I had so much fun helping you finding your dream gown. You looked absolutely perfect in your wedding day. The Bridal Room Heba Adat Owner

Abbie Hibsch: After visiting a total of 3 bridal stores in one weekend, I can say that Bridal Room is the BEST experience you could ever ask for. I worked with Lisa and she was absolutely wonderful. She was patient, kind, and created a very warm and personal experience. Lisa allowed me to pick out a few dresses and then pulled more beautiful dresses based on my preferences. I was never rushed during my appointment, and I was never pressured to make a purchase (which unfortunately happened to me at other places and ruined the experience). Lisa was also incredibly knowledgeable about all of the dresses and was able to tell me whether I would be able to customize each individual dress.

Lauren Williams: Had such a wonderful experience at The Bridal Room!! First off the shop is so beautiful, it’s like year round cherry blossom season and so so organized, best mirrors and lighting…like I need that in my house. Second every person I interacted with was so genuinely sweet and my stylist Rachel was 11/10 amazing! Third they totally get it and will work with you to find what you’re looking for in a no pressure environment. I ended up going back for a second appointment as they were having a trunk show and the designer was going to be in the shop, we were able to build out the perfect dress that was in my price range and I cannot wait to see how it turned out! So if you’re on the fence just go and ask for Rachel(though they’re all awesome there) and I promise it will be a memorable experience!

Melani French: I just wanted to edit my previous review with photos of my gown now that I’m finally married 8.28.21! I LOVED my Essence of Australia gown--it was PERFECT! The Bridal Room was the 2nd boutique I had visited on my gown shopping journey, and I knew it would be hard for them to beat the ambiance & service of the 1st place--but they did! I had an AMAZING experience and I can't believe I said yes to my dress! The boutique was beautiful, my consultant Grace was waiting at the front desk with her mask on, ready to greet us, and the process was flawless even with COVID restrictions! I was allowed to bring 2 guests--my mom and my best friend/matron of honor--and I was also allowed to have the rest of my bridal party join us via Zoom video call! The Bridal Room was awesome in communicating with me via email prior to our visit to understand my vision. Grace was very knowledgeable and she made me feel amazing from start to finish. She had taken the time to review certain gowns I had found online that I wanted to try on but also used her expertise to pull a few others that she thought I may like to try. I ended up saying yes to a dress that she had chosen, and I couldn't be happier! She truly is great at what she does and you can tell she is truly passionate about her job. The shop is beautiful, they had a cute welcome sign with my name on it outside the front door, my guests and I felt right at home, and they even gave us some champagne to toast to my new gown! Thank you, Bridal Room!
Response: Hi Melani Thank yo so much for 5 star review. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your experience with Grace and Thank you for choosing The Bridal Room to be part of your wedding journey. Heba Adat The Bridal Room Owner

Samantha Lund: I had THE best dress shopping experience at the Bridal Room! This was my second stop of the day after my first stop ended up being a huge disappointment. Everyone I came in contact with (from the receptionist at the front desk to the consultant I worked with, to the seamstress, etc.) were all so nice and welcoming. Special shout out to Kenzie, my consultant. She was absolutely amazing! She made me and my guests feel so comfortable during our visit. She really took the time to make sure I found the perfect dress that was within my budget. Highly recommend the Bridal Room for any new brides!
Response: Thank you Samantha for your kind words. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your experience with us and we can't wait to see you in your gown soon. The Bridal Room Heba Adat Owner

Charlotte Anthony: Beautifully decorated, very clean, and decent selection of dresses. Giving 4/5 stars due to the "stuffy" feeling and slightly uncomfortable atmosphere cultivated by The Bridal Room's rigid rules. They do not let you take pictures of each dress you try on (only your "top 1 or 2"') and they highly advise you to only try on 6 dresses max. I did not purchase from here and actually went elsewhere to retry on my top dress and purchase.
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review. We don't have a policy for 6 dresses max. All our brides can try as many as they want till they find their dream wedding dress. Brides can take pictures of the gowns they love once we get till the end of the appointment to make they have enough time to try all the gowns they want. Again Thank you so much for the feedback because that's how we can improve as small business. Congratulations on finding your wedding. The Bridal Room Heba Adat Owner

Sragi Khakurel: They had a beautiful and wide variety of dress selections. The consultant was really knowledgeable about the dresses that they had and was able to give me great recommendations. I was torn between two dresses, one with glitter and one with lace. The bridal consultant suggested that we buy glitter fabric and combine the two dresses. It was perfect. Highly recommend!!!!

Haena Lee: I had a great experience at the Bridal Room. It was my first bridal shop with my mom and sister. I had 2 more shops lined up to see as it was the only time and semi last minute in looking for dresses. Saddia was so great and helped me so much. I knew I wanted a simple dress and after seeing some of the dresses, she actually picked something that hit spot on of what I wanted. I didn't say yes right away but it was the only dress I could think of and no other styles in the other 2 shops. After going to the 2 other shops that day, The Bridal Room truly was more attentive, welcoming, and had a large variety of dresses. For the 2 fittings, Heba and the seamstress was amazing and just helped answer what I had questions on and gave wonderful suggestions. The final product of my dress was GORGEOUS! I cannot believe just how clean and well fitted everything was. I HIGHLY recommend The Bridal Room and Saddia.
Response: Thank you so much Haena for your the review. Your looked absolutely stunning on your wedding day. The Bridal Room, Heba Adat Owner

Zoya's Atelier - Bridal, Evening Wear and Alterations Boutique: what do users think?


Hannah Kaufman: I purchased my wedding gown and accessories from Zoya’s and am so happy with the overall experience. I purchased a Suzanne Neville gown - this is definitely the place to come to in the DMV area if you are interested in SN gowns (which you should be - they are amazing!). Amy was so lovely during all of my fittings and saved the day when the veil I originally planned to wear didn’t work. I was a little nervous as a plus size bride (street size 16) about wedding dress shopping in general, but the Zoya’s team was great and I had no issues. I felt 100% beautiful on our wedding day.

Jessica Nguyen: Zoya’s Atelier is HANDS DOWN the best bridal boutique in the area. Having gone through a few “big” names, I can honestly say that I am so glad I said yes to my dress at Zoya’s. Immediately upon walking in, Amy made me feel so at ease and so comfortable. It was such a different experience than anywhere else. She listed to me, asked questions and really understood what I was wanted. She was never pushy about making the sale. If I said no to a dress, she immediately took it into account for the next and not show me the same style. She wanted me to be in love with the dress and nothing else. Alterations was amazing as well after the fact. Zoya herself made sure everything was done to perfection. She’s super sweet!! The entire alterations team is so professional and you can tell they will never send you home with a dress that’s not up to their standards. Do yourself a favor and go to Zoya’s Atelier!! They treat you like family and not just another bridal sale.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind works Jessica!!! You are family!! It was an honor to work with you, and have you as a Zoya’s Atelier bride!

Anna Moreland: Amy and her team made my experience of choosing and perfecting my dream wedding dress one of the absolute best parts of the wedding planning process! Amy did so much to make my visits special, which meant a lot especially during the pandemic when my loved ones could only participate via video call. The alterations team is extremely talented and patient, and expertly tailored my gown over the course of our fittings. Can't recommend these ladies highly enough!
Response: Thank you so much Anna! It was such a pleasure working with you, and our honor to have you as a Zoya’s Atelier bride!

julie huang: I dropped in 2 weeks before a big event that I still didn’t have a dress for; Zoya, Doris and her team attended to me straightway and managed to find me perfect gown. Although it was several sizes off and there was no time to order it in the right size, their seamstresses got me sewed into it so it fit like a glove and was comfortable, as well. It was an expensive experience, but a positive one and well worth the splurge — I looked and felt like a million bucks afterward. You only live once!
Response: Thank you Julie!!! You looked incredible! So happy you found such a perfect gown! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Tina Truong: If you're on the hunt for your wedding day fit and you have no idea where to start, I highly recommend coming to Zoya's first thing. Beautiful shop, gorgeous gown selections. A huge shout out to Amy for listening to what I had envisioned my wedding gown to be and for respectfully encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have found my beautiful Suzanne Neville gown (and never in a million years would I have thought to try the exact style on, etc). It gives me anxiety thinking about what my gown hunt would be like if I didn't come to Zoya's. As most bride-to-bes know, planning a wedding isn't easy. Amy's kindness and communication has made gown shopping effortless for me, and now, it's one less thing I have to worry about. My gown was a teensy bit out of my budget, but trust me, you get what you're paying for. It is an investment unlike any other and you will thank yourself for it. I was initially discouraged trying on other gowns at the first store, and almost settled for a gown that was just mediocre but two thirds the price. The design of this Suzanne Neville gown Amy recommended makes me feel so beautiful, comfortable, and structurally supported (ladies with the larger busts, you know what I'm talking about!!). I am absolutely looking forward to dancing my wedding night away without any worries!

Christine L: WOW! What an amazing experience at Zoya's!!! Amy is phenomenal and I had the best experience! Amy is knowledgeable, kind, extremely personable and helped me find the dress of my dreams! I felt like I was shopping with a friend. I appreciated her perspective and support so much and can't wait to get married and wear this dress. 10/10 would recommend. You won't get the same experience anywhere else. Make this your first stop.

Kate Thomasson: Where do I even start?! I loved every minute of my experience at Zoya’s Atelier and especially that I got to work with Zoya herself! I made an appointment for a trunk show event to try on a specific dress I’ve had my eye on since the designer published it in their new collection. After having been to a few other bridal shops and not finding anything special or really feeling like it was a true wedding dress shopping experience, I came to Zoya’s. Best decision ever. She sat down with my mom, sister and I and went over the form I filled out, the store layout, and our favorite part was how they do the alterations in-house! Zoya is calming, friendly, a perfectionist (we love that!) and as another reviewer said - truly like a fairy godmother. I would trust her with anything! She set aside the dress I came in for to be the last to try on, she picked a few dresses she thought would look good on me and we picked a few I thought I’d like. The first dress she put me in was her pick and it was STUNNING! Something I never would’ve picked for myself but I truly felt beautiful in it, the fabric was airy and light and a one of a kind dress. So that first dress became the one to beat as we tried on the others that just didn’t have the wow factor… until the last dress. The one I’ve had my eye on. I really didn’t expect to have “that feeling” that everyone refers to when you find the one but I did. I teared up a bit and really truly felt like wow, this is so me. It was a really tough choice because I also loved the first dress too! Zoya asked all the right questions, she was a true advocate for helping make the best decision for me and how I felt. So we took some time to think about it, made another appointment for a few days later to bring my parents in to see both dresses and make my decision. One thing that stuck with me was Zoya said to “go with the dress you’re most excited about” and let me tell you, I did not stop thinking about that last dress, I looked at the photos of it online multiple times a day and was so excited to put it back on!! We came back in, put both dresses on and I just knew it was the one. They had a champagne toast for us to celebrate, took a few photos with the Zoya’s Bride sign and had my measurements taken. At both appointments, I never felt rushed like I did in the other shops, it’s a big decision to make so I greatly appreciate the time taken to ensure I knew I was making the right decision! And with that being said, I know I made the right decision on the dress but more importantly to become a Zoya’s Bride! I trust the entire team and cannot be more excited to experience this journey with them! Thank you so much! 💕

Kaleigh Jones: After going to many other stores that made me feel rushed, judged, and hopeless, I finally discovered Zoya's and never turned back. The atelier shop is not pretentious or overwhelming - it feels like home and the quality of the dresses speak for themselves. My favorite part of working with the Zoya's team was the private appointment experience. No other clients were ever booked during my appointments (before and during covid), which I really loved. It felt like I was their most important customer every time. I also loved that Zoya & Amy personally knew the designer of my dress from London, which gave me extra confidence in their professional opinions and ability to execute perfect alterations. I have already recommended Zoya's to a best friend (who also happily found her dress there) and will continue to encourage all brides shopping for their dream dress to put full trust in Zoya's to help with this special shopping and alterations experience. Cheers!

Alaina: I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Zoya's. Doris was extremely helpful and such a pleasure to work with. I have been to many bridal dress stores and I must say that this store had some of the most unique dresses I have ever seen.

Stephanie Mineo: My future daughter-in-law, Shannen and I had an amazing and very elevated experience with Amy from start to finish AND she said YES to the dress! It all just felt right. I highly recommend Zoya Atelier.
