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.

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!

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.

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!

Elegance By Roya Bridal - Old Town Alexandria: what do users think?


Jessica Arrazola: Pro: EBR has a great selection of dresses. They are super knowledgeable on the quality and material of the dresses and will advise on what’s best (ie satin not great if you sweat). My consultant Farah was attentive and gave me options based on my body type. The dress I got wasn’t even what I went in thinking I wanted! Con: The dress they ordered was based on their measuring and consulting. They decided to recommend ordering me a size 10 dress. But when I looked up the dress and the maker’s bridal sizing for myself I was a size 6 instead of a 10. No tailor wants to take this project on, making me think they do this to bank on the alteration upsell. Note, I’m 102 lbs. size 25 jeans (0/1). Ordered me a bridal 10. Pics for during fitting and now the custom dress I’m apparently having to have made.
Response: Hi Jessica, We truly apologize for this inconvenience. To avoid any mistakes, we typically have our brides try their gowns on before signing-off on it. Please feel free to email or call us, we'd love to help in this matter. We look forward to hearing from you, EBR Management

Sloane Katleman: I had a wonderful experience with Farah and the whole staff. They are kind, attentive, professional and all around lovely folks! Farah made me feel comfortable expressing my real thoughts and feelings on the dresses. For all the shy/people pleasing ladies out there, you know how much we need this. We went through multiple revisions until we came to my totally customized dream wedding dress. Ladies - come here to get your dress. Seriously all the dresses are beautiful. I could stare at them all day. Thank you, Farah!!!

rachel robertello: I truly cannot put into words how grateful I am to have found my dress at such a wonderful shop where all the staff were so kind and helpful from looking for the dress to the final fitting. Being plus size, I was so nervous to even go dress shopping but they really made me feel like a bride and had more than enough styles for me to try on. Then when I became pregnant, they continued to work on my dress alterations to accommodate all my body changes along the way and my dress fit perfectly, the way I wanted it, on the wedding day. I had such a wonderful experience working with everyone in this bridal shop and really appreciate how kind everyone was. Elegance by Roya is absolutely the perfect one-stop shop for all the wedding gown and accessory needs.

Sallie Seiy: I had the BEST experience at Elegance by Roya. Ayesha was incredible and listened to my needs. She knows the inventory super well and was able to pull dresses that were my vision. They had a beautiful selection for every style. I was so surprised and so happy with my dress. It's stunning and makes me feel like a bride! Fara was also very helpful with answering alteration questions. i can't wait to go back and try my dress on again when it arrives! I'll be recommending Elegance by Roya in Old Town for all my friends!

Andrea Lovell-Bennett: I am absolutely grateful to Farah and the Team at Elegance By Roya for such an amazing experience and for my incredibly beautiful gown! I traveled back and forth from Connecticut for fittings etc… I felt absolutely special during each and every appointment. Thank you Farah… blessings

Jessica Taylor: Very late review, but I wanted to make sure I rave about the girl that helped me with my shopping and purchase! I had an appointment to look at bridal appointments back in July, 2021, and I was helped by Ayesha, the girl in the photo. She was so positive and uplifting and wanted to make sure I was truly happy with my choice! She was also very sweet and treated me and my sister and mother very kindly. She made the experience fun and exciting rather than daunting like I thought it would be. This was my first and last dress shopping appointment as she was able to help me find a beautiful dress and help make it affordable. I liked how the place scheduled appointments for COVID and was not crowded at all like the major chain bridal shops can be. My group had plenty of space and time for our appointment and did not feel rushed or uncomfortable at all. I did give 4 stars because we had to wait about 10-15 minutes past our appointment time outside in July. However, they didn’t rush us even with our appointment being at the end of the shop’s hours! Thank you so much Ayesha if you see this! My dress was so beautiful and you’re great! :D

Paige Pendergrass: Elegance by Roya is truly a hidden Gem!! I can't explain in words the level of professionalism, knowledge and kindness the team at Elegance by Roya showed my mother and I. I am forever grateful for not only the BEAUTIFUL dress they carried, but for the memories they created for my mother and I. I would recommend Elegance by Roya to anyone! If you're looking for a sign on where to shop for your big day, this is your sign!

Emily Sundstrom: I had a great experience getting my dress here and coming in to the alteration appointments. My dress is beautiful and I felt so good in it on my wedding day. Reasonably priced for Alexandria, too. Highly recommend!

Sarah Nicodemus: I had an amazing experience at Elegance by Roya in Alexandria! The store is beautiful and there’s plenty of dresses to choose from. Ayesha helped me find my dream dress and the experience was everything and more. Ayesha was so genuine and made me feel so comfortable right off the bat. It felt like we knew each other for years! She asked lots of questions about what I liked and what I envisioned for my dress. I felt like I could be truly honest with what I liked and disliked. My mom and I had such an amazing time finding my wedding dress… highly recommend coming here!!

Katie Silva: I can't recommend Elegance enough! From my first visit to now, everything has been perfect! The Staff is professional and kind, and my seamstress Farrah is superb! She is sweet and so accommodating to everything I've asked/needed. She transformed my moms 80s veil into something so beautiful and amazing. I trust her completely and I cannot recommend her enough!!

Fairytale Brides: what do users think?


Jennifer Garcia: Love this place and Leah! I had such a great experience she definitely understood my vision. I had rescheduled my wedding two years out because of covid and even had a baby a few weeks before my wedding. I left everything for last minute including my veil which was the most important to me for my Catholic wedding. I looked everywhere even on amazon out of desperation! I originally wanted a pearl veil but Leah asked me how my dress looked and my vision and pulled this beautiful Carolina Herrera veil someone had donated. I tried it on and new it was it! But was hesitant because I always envisioned it as pearls. Leah convinced me on how beautiful this would look in pictures as well as walking down the aisle and she was right! That bad boy sparkled and got so many compliments. Im so very happy and lucky I found Leah! If you book your appointment make sure you request her she is also the best boost of self confidence you will get she made me feel so great and excited for my wedding!
Response: Thank you so much for the compliment. Seeing your photos is so heartwarming. You were a beautiful bride.

Courtney Southard: I had an amazing experience this past weekend at Fairytale Brides. After visiting several bridal shops in the DC area, I started to lose hope that I'd be able to find a dress within my very tight budget (and one that wasn't previously owned). Insert Fairytale Brides! I came to this shop on a whim and was able to make a last minute appointment without issue. I worked with Claudia and she was very accommodating from the start. She was very welcoming and did an awesome job of identifying dresses that matched the look I was going for. I didn't have much luck with the dresses I pulled from the rack but Claudia identified several options from the inventory they had in the back. And lucky for me, one of those dresses happened to be the one that I ended up going with! So happy to say that I officially said yes to the dress and none of it would've been possible without the help of Claudia and the lovely staff at Fairytale Brides!
Response: HELLO Courtney! Thank you for your extremely kind words. We are so happy that your experience was so positive (but not surprising) at Fairytale Brides! We are a hidden gem in our community, and pride ourselves with having the kindest and most helpful volunteers like Claudia! We wish you a wedding filled with many compliments on the gorgeous dress you found! So glad you gave our boutique a chance to deliver! Donna Maria

Haliun Ayush: I had a wonderful experience here looking for wedding dress. It was easy to book an appointment online and when I arrived on the day of my appointment, they had out a personalized chalk board out to welcome me. I had Leah who was amazing, sweet, kind and fun to converse with. I loved that all the dresses were affordable (compared to other places). You never know what you will find
Response: Haliun! Thank you so much for the kind review and rating your personal experience. You were a pleasure to work with! You will truly be a beautiful bride!!

Ashley Thomas: I had a wonderful experience at Fairytale Brides. They had a wide selection of dresses, accessories, and veils to choose from. Everything was reasonably priced and I absolutely love that they donate a portion of the proceeds back into the community each summer. I am so glad I got to futile my dream of having two dresses by coming here.
Response: Thank you Ashley for the nice review! It was a pleasure working with you, and your mom ...and your friend! Be sure to tag us or forward us your wedding photos! You will be a beautiful bride x2!

Allison Peña: I had a wonderful experience at Fairytale Brides yesterday! It was my first bridal appointment and I was by myself, and Missy and Leah could not have been more welcoming! I can be quite particular about how I like things to fit, so I didn't expect to find anything on the first try. However, Missy worked with me to figure out all of my preferences and kept pulling dresses from the back until we found the right dress. My fiancé and I had decided on a "magic number" that I should buy a dress if I found one I loved, and this dress came in $100 below that! There's no way I could have found a better deal elsewhere, and the volunteers were such a dream to work with. I will be recommending Fairytale Brides to anyone I know looking to save some money and give back with their wedding gown purchase!!
Response: Thank you Allison for the kind words! We are so happy you enjoyed your experience and found your dress. Be sure to tag us or send us photos of your big day- you will be BEAUTIFUL!

Alicia: I had an excellent time at Fairytale Brides ("FB"). I am getting married in February of next year. It was very important to me that I began my bridal dress search within the same season as my wedding date. But I did not expect to find a dress in February. I thought this process would take some time and many visits to different dress shops. I consider myself very lucky to have found FB. My experience began with me needing to change my initial appointment that I had made through their website. Donna, the store owner, called me and even though it was over the weekend she very sweetly found a new appointment time for me. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised by how intimate and beautiful the shop looked. I love the fact that all of the sale associates are volunteers and the proceeds from the dresses go to local and national charaties. Donna began with asking me what I was looking for, taking a look at my Pinterest page, and asking me questions to elicit ideas about my personality. After she was done both her and I began pulling dresses off the shelves. It was really fun. Even though I went alone and without an entourage I didn't feel weird or uncomfortable. I tried on several dresses and was about to end the session and rethink my desire to have sleeves when Donna asked me to try on the last dress. I feel in love with that last dress. But, my practical side kicked in and I asked to put that dress and a reception dress I had also found (the first dress I tried on) on hold. Donna had "blinged me up", helped me to take tons of photographs and videos, given me advice on alterations, and yet was so sweet and understanding when I asked to put it on hold for 7 days. They also worked with me and scheduling an appointment that would let my maid of honor join me for the revisit. The week leading up to the revisit I kept seeing myself in that dress on the big day so it was easy peezy at the revisit. But I was less sure about the reception dress. My friend though encouraged me and I'm really happy she did. It's a stunning dress. Donna and the other volunteers made us both feel great and I really enjoyed getting blinged up and standing on the podium. Everyone was super nice and I felt like a bride. I couldn't stop smiling the whole time. I also got an excellent deal. A few weeks later, I made another appointment for veils only. There are a lot of veils on the market. I knew I could probably find a cheaper veil on Etsy or Poshmark but the veil I tried on in the store blew me away. Plus, the irrational side of me, wanted to buy from Donna and the crew because they made me feel like I was special. So, in short I've purchased my veil, dress, and reception dress from FB almost a year out from the wedding and everything feels perfect! Last thing I'll mention is that they also give a little surprise gift at the end and their packaging is adorable. 👰🏿‍♀️
Response: Thank you Alicia for the review, were so happy you allowed us to be apart of your fairytale journey. Be sure to send us some photos to share of your magical day!

Sandie Bublak: We had multiple appointments elsewhere but came here first. My granddaughter found her dress and it was the first one she tried on!! The shop has a boutique vibe and plenty of space for tag alongs. There is a really large selection in all sizes. Her dress still had the tags on it and it was a Vera Wang! The pricing fit below our budget so this was a real plus especially in today's ecomomy. The volunteers worked hard and listened to what she was looking for. Overall the experience was nice and not stressful-i give them a 5*-also her purchase will go back into the community so a win win for the experience
Response: Thank you for taking the time for a review. It is equally exciting finding the dress and finding the dress to fit your budget. Thank you for pointing out the hard work of our volunteers. Make sure you send us photos of the big day for us to share.

Liz Sisk: Fairytale Bride was very flexible with me (I accidentally marked my calendar for the wrong weekend) and were very helpful at my appointment. I ended up loving the first dress I tried on and returned a few weeks later to purchase it after I couldn't stop thinking about it. I got a great deal on a gently used dress and love that my money is going towards local organizations instead of the wedding industry.
Response: Thank you so much for this stellar review and it was a pleasure to work with you to find your wedding dress! Your lovely dress was waiting for your return. Please stay in touch and send us a picture on your wedding day that we can post on our website! Best wishes

Tai: Horrible experience! They kept rescheduling and canceling my appointment for whatever reason! On 3rd attempt the old lady with boxed dyed black hair would not let me in and kept repeating and assuming I was donating my wedding dress when I told her over and over I had an appointment after going back and forth with her she finally let me and my mother in we felt awkward and very uncomfortable they did not offer my mothers seat I had to pick items I wanted by myself the sales lady was not present! They would not help and just made me feel like I did not belong there! The other sales associate was not friendly and neither the customers we were the only black people in there the sales associate never apologized for assuming I did not have an appoint I do not recommend this place if you have an ethnic or you are not blonde hair with blue eyes I’m very disappointed because I gave Donna a chance and actually liked her my sister called to complain and the other sales associate picked up the phone and was laughing the whole time when my sister explained the experience to her! word of advice do not JUDGE you do not know who has money and who doesn’t I was discriminated against and lost a paying customer and even a customer who’s committed to giving long time loyalty to great businesses
Response: Tai:I am personally so sorry for your experience. Our shop solely works with volunteers. At times there are instances where we are left without a volunteer. Our mission is to make your experience as fun, and happy as possible. We welcome all, sizes, shapes and colors and I we will harder to make everyone feel comfortable. Sorry for your experience.

Zach Jacobs: My fiancée and I had such an amazing experience at Fairytale Brides. The selection is fantastic and there were a number of dresses that fit our tight budget. Amparo was so kind in helping choose the dress. She’s a super star!! Plus, the money goes to a worthy charity or scholarship fund, so it makes you feel good in what you’re buying. Absolutely recommend this store to any bride! I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
Response: Thank you Zach for the review and reminding everyone that we all are volunteers here and proceeds are sent right back into the community.

I Do I Do Bridal (By Appointment Only): what do users think?


Jenna M: I had a really positive and great experience at I Do I Do Bridal, and is ultimately where I purchased my dress! Leanne and Tracy reached out to me in the week leading to my appointment, and asked what I was looking for, and I was able to send pictures of the types of dresses that I liked. I worked with Tracy at my appointment, and she had several great options picked out for me based on my preferences. I was also able to pick out dresses myself too, which was nice. Tracy was so nice and really fun to work with! It was my first dress shopping appointment, so I didn't know what to expect. I Do I Do made it easy, relaxing and a lot fun. I was happy to purchase my dress there and I can't wait for it to arrive!

Shakeera Harden: Finding I Do I Do was a complete by chance thing and I’m so happy I did!!! Tracy really listened to what I want and made me feel like I was the only bride that matters. She was so sweet and caring, sharing jokes with us as she searched for the most perfect dresses. We felt protected, loved, and important the entire time. The first dress she chose for me was everything I wanted and a few things I didn’t know I wanted. I literally didn’t want to take it off. I’m so excited to try it on again when it comes in in November (yes I loved and bought the FIRST DRESS TRACY BROUGHT OUT FOR ME!!) I love everything about I Do I Do ❤️❤️❤️
Response: We love working with brides and we're so happy you had such a great experience with us. Thanks so much for the kind words.

Claudette Bernstein: This bridal shop was highly recommended to me by two friends, each of whom found their Mother of the Bride gowns there in recent years. Tracy was the sales associate on duty on the day I shopped there, on 1/17/22. Tracy was so patient and accommodating, and I never felt the slightest bit pressured to make a decision throughout the course of my trying on multiple gowns. She was also extremely attentive to all the necessary details, making sure I was informed of all my options, what colors were available etc. She quickly got a feel for what I was really looking for, and then she ultimately suggested that I try on this one dress that had just come in; this dress turned out to be 'the one'! Tracy clearly went the extra mile for me, doing everything possible to make sure that I found a dress that fit me well, was appropriate for the occasion and would arrive in the store in time to make the necessary alterations in time for my daughter's wedding.
Response: It was a pleasure working with you! Thank you for your kind words and for shopping with a small business. It means everything to us.

basicllybethany: Tracy and Leanne helped me with my first wedding dress try on. Since it was my first time ever trying on dresses, I was a bit nervous! But they were amazing. They were so kind and helped me to feel comfortable and relaxed. They did their very best showing me dresses that were my style. I DEFINITELY recommend I Do I Do for every bride. They also had dresses in my price range which was awesome!

Bola Adebesin: This was the first bridal shop I visited after getting engaged and I feel so lucky to have found it. Tracy was so efficient that it made dress shopping a breeze. As soon as I mentioned something that I liked about one dress, she was there, ready with another dress that had the feature I wanted but always a little closer to what I was looking for. She really knows her inventory inside and out. But beyond her knowledge base, she was just so incredibly warm and kind. If anyone asks me for recommendations, this is 100% where I will send them. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law to be were with me and they had nothing but great things to say about the service we received as well.

Nicole N: I Do I Do was the 4th or 5th place we had gone to try on dresses and man are we lucky we found Tracy and Leanne!!! Tracy reached out a few days before the appointment to ask about styles and even asked me to send pictures over if I had them! When we arrived to the store, they had a few dresses already picked out and in the dressing room. My mom and I browsed through a few more. They were so helpful, calm and find - it made the experience for sure. I ended up finding my gown there and couldn't be happier! My mom even found her Mother of the Bride there also! 100% recommend!
Response: We're so glad found us too. So great working with you and your mom! Thank you.

Katherine Skrzyniarz: My experience at I Do I Do was fabulous! Tracy was patient, knowledgeable, and kind. Prior the the appointment, Tracy texted me to see what styles I was interested in, and had an assortment of gowns ready to go right when I arrived. She also allowed my group to look through the entire inventory and pull any other dresses of interest. As this was one of my first times trying on bridal gowns, I did not feel pressured to make a decision on the spot, not did we feel rushed during the process. Prices are reasonable as well. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We loved working with you!

Rosemary Schultz: Tracey was wonderful!! She communicated with me via text and phone to understand the type dress I was looking for! When I arrived for my appointment She was professional and fun to work with! I found the perfect gown for my sons wedding!! I Would definitely recommend I do I do!!
Response: Thanks for your review. You'll be beautiful in that gown. Looking forward to seeing pictures!

Victoria Cain: I had an incredible experience at I Do I Do! Before my appointment, Tracy reached out to learn more about what I was interested in. When I arrived for my appointment, she had already picked out several choices for me to try on based on what I had shared with her! The shop is beautiful and everyone that works there is incredibly patient and kind and makes you feel like a million bucks! I never felt pressured to make up my mind or just pick something and they encouraged me to really take my time to find the perfect dress for me - and I did! So so grateful for this awesome shop.
Response: Thank you so much Victoria! We loved working with you!

Ashley Ortiz: I went to I Do I Do for my bridal gown and absolutely loved it. Tracy was super nice and patient during my two appointments with a fairly large entourage. The seamstress was absolutely amazing and basically reconstructed the top of my dress after I lost about ten pounds before my wedding. I also bought my veil and hair clip from there. It’s really a one stop shop. I’m in the process of consigning my dress with I Do I Do. The process is fairly easy, because I bought my dress from them they waived the admin fee. They try to sell the dress for 10 months with the possibility for extending a few more months after that point. Will update if/when I resell the dress. I would definitely shop at I Do I Do again!

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!

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!)

BeFitted Tailoring Co.: what do users think?


Michelle Orozco: Diane and Michelle were an absolute delight to work with. For some context, it took me a long time to decide on a dress for my wedding. I finally bought this dress online because I was running out of time and I had lukewarm feelings about it. I just needed something to wear! At my first fitting, Diane and Michelle made me feel confident in my dress. They were so kind, patient and reassured me when I was feeling down and defeated about my choice. They listened to all my concerns and made their own suggestions. I knew I was leaving my dress in good hands! My dress needed to be hemmed, taken in at the hips, have cups added as well as a beautiful bustle that was easy to use. They also readjusted some of the appliqué on the sleeves that stuck out too much for my taste. I had two fittings in total. Diane and Michelle provide a premium service and deliver premium quality. If I ever need alterations for a formal dress, I am coming back here!

Natalie Lyles: BeFitted altered my wedding dress and also helped dry clean and preserve my dress. They were so kind and I found their emails and recommendations super helpful. I thought the pricing was fair for the amount of intricacy of my dress. I loved that they took the time to listen to what I had to say, and they pointed out things I wouldn't have even noted about my dress since I don't know much about sewing. After the wedding, they made it seamless to drop the dress off for cleaning and I appreciated that the dress didn't come back in a huge giant box! I had such a wonderful, personalized experience and I would recommend these ladies to any of my girlfriends getting married! Service: Alterations

Allison Porto: The REAL freaking DEAL! These ladies live up to the hype (I know there are so many good reviews here already). They were so kind, gentle, and fun. I looked forward to all of my fittings and my dress came out PERFECTLY! The dress really looked like it had not even been sewn or adjusted at all; I felt way more confident leaving my dress here since they are specialized and only do bridal. Diane even steamed my veil and such for me when she really didn't have to. You can tell this team loves what they do and they are so welcoming. I can't thank them enough for helping me get my dream dress and making me feel comfortable and beautiful in the process! Also the location was pretty easy to find and the inside of the studio is super cute and their aesthetic is super chic! Services: Alterations , Design , General repairs

Kate Beacom: Do not take your dress here. They are careless and expensive. I was rushed to make an appointment early because of the pandemic and they didn't know how long they were going to be open or how long it was going to take to make alterations. I was rushed during the appointment because they had overbooked clients and had multiple brides in the salon at the same time. I barely had time to put the dress on before I was rushed to give you my credit card. The time spent analyzing the dress was not sufficient and the seamstress was moving too fast and was not listening to what I wanted to do with the dress. I was told that the things that I wanted were included in the quote and they were not. Making the price I ended up paying for the alterations even more insanely high. I ended up taking my gown to another seamstress, she took impeccable care of the dress and charged half the price. She said that the BeFitted Tailoring team did a terrible job taking care of the dress, there were snags in the dress from pins and needles, the cuts in the gown were sloppy and not consistent, the seams in the dress were done over the boning and not properly completed. You can see where the seamstress sewed the bra cups into the dress through the front of the dress because the job was done too quickly. There was puckering happening with the fabric because the fabric was not matched up properly when they sewed the dress back together. I brought up multiple concerns during my fitting and I was told that they would be addressed at my final fitting before the wedding or that they were not issues. Which I now know were lies and ways to just rush me out of the shop. They refused to listen to my requests to fix the dress and were reckless with my designer gown. I would never recommend another bride take her dress here, you will regret it. Service: Alterations
Response: Hi Kate, Thanks for your taking the time to share your feedback. Reviews like this are hard to read, especially when we felt like we had such positive, lovely experiences in-studio with you. We know this extended pandemic has been tough for everyone, especially brides (I believe a full year had passed from the time of your pick-up fitting by the time you had your wedding), and we’re happy to hear you were able to have your wedding and to wear your dress the way you wanted to. We had offered several times to go through another fitting on the dress closer to your rescheduled date and invited you back to the studio, and respected your decision when you chose not to let us take another look. We now wish we would have contended harder for that recommendation so we could make the situation right. Out of respect for your privacy, we won’t divulge any additional information about your dress (including those explained in detail via email over the course of several months) outside of the ones you mentioned in this review. Every tailor executes their alterations differently and we may not have shared methods with your secondary tailor. For example, for us, when we handle semi-sheer fabrics that are unadorned, bra cups are always sewn delicately on the inside of the dress because if you sew them between the lining layer or stitch them down entirely, you will see the rim of the cup from the outside and/or the stitches will pucker through visibly. It is for this same reason that we did not recommend sewing down attachments for dress accessories as they would be visible and prominent on unaccented, minimal style gowns. As a general rule, we do not ever create new seams (so the seams referred to are original) or interfere with boning or bust darts (touching the boning can deflate the dress and change the structure; leaving the original design is almost always the default choice). Looking at our notes, your dress was taken in on the existing side seams which is fairly standard practice. It is though possible that fitting pins left indentations; those can be removed using a special steam iron and I wish we could have pressed those out for you! Your feedback about appointment times and scheduling are well-taken, and truthfully, operating during COVID has been hard and frustrating at times for all of us. Since March 2020 (we first saw you in May right as we first cautiously reopened to take appointments again), we’ve been on our COVID-19 operating protocol. At the time, we shortened our appointments in alignment with recommendations from the city health department to minimize contact that has to be within 6 feet of individuals to 15-20 mins (of course tailoring requires getting within that 6-ft zone). That situation is a little better now that we have vaccines and feel a little safer remaining masked and getting in physical proximity to clients, but still, that doesn’t make for an ideal situation for any of us, and we apologize for that inconvenience. It seems like your big day has now come and gone, and we genuinely wish you the very best especially after a collectively-difficult (almost) two years. We are sorry that this was not the experience you hoped for; it was certainly not our intention to leave you feeling this way. We’ll take this feedback to learn and grow and improve our processes along the way. All the best, Michelle and Diane

Rachel Lamar: I had a great experience with BeFitted. My dress and alterations came out perfectly. I had scheduled super early due to covid and I had never even been to the shop or area. I was welcomed in and my dress fit perfectly. They were very responsive and I had requested another appointment due to losing weight and they quickly accommodated my request. I highly recommend! Thank you! Service: Alterations

Chantal Girard: Absolutely wonderful service and beautiful work! Having a very simple dress, I wasn’t sure what it needed prior to my wedding day, but these women knew exactly what I needed! They were supportive of the vision I had and helped make my dress fit my shape and my personality perfectly. They also sent me with a wedding day “game plan” packet to help us with the bustle on the day and with information on caring for my gown. Would absolutely recommend to any bride!

Dianna C: WOW! What wonderful human beings with such a gift and artistry for wedding dresses. I wanted to make sure I got the best of wedding vendors so I booked with Befitted and I am so glad I did. The dress was perfect and they went above and beyond to make sure I was heard and that my dress not only looked flawless but also felt comfortable and good for me to wear all night (I spent this much on a dress, I was insistent on being able to wear it all night long without changing!). Their instructions were very clear, they took COVID seriously, and their helpful tips and underwear advise was so clutch since it's hard to know what to buy. I am so happy with the way my dress came out and that I got to support a local business in the process. I'm telling all of my friends to come here in the future and would do it again just for fun and an excuse to see these ladies! Services: Alterations , Design

Dani King: The most memorable part of wedding planning in the best way possible! Diane and Michelle were so gentle and extremely kind to an anxious bride like me; my dress came out perfect and every trip to their cute studio was something I looked forward to. They tell you exactly what to bring, are very organized with scheduling, and very kind people. They are bridal only so heads up that you don't tailor other items. They even helped do rush alterations on my reception dress which came kind of late in the mail due to COVID. They also helped draw a picture of my bustle for my maid of honor and the bustle as super easy which was great on the actual wedding day. Am itching for an excuse to come back and just sent my mom here for her dress she's wearing to my brother's wedding! Services: Alterations , Design

Megan Riehle: I can't say enough kind things about Michelle and Diane -- they are WONDERFUL! My wedding dress was far too big for me when I brought it in and they basically had to remake the entire dress. It was a lot of work for them but they made sure that it fit me perfectly. I also asked them (mere weeks before my wedding) to remove the massive train off the back of my gown. They were more than happy to do it and gave me the dress of my dreams. I would absolutely recommend them for alterations! Service: Alterations

Natalie Yuravlivker: Michelle and Diane are lovely and incredibly talented. The back of my dress had weird set of buttons that didn't really match the rest of the design. They took that out and sewed the area beautifully. They also tighten the top of dress and improved the fit perfectly.

The Bridal Boutique: what do users think?


Angela Esmond: I purchased my wedding gown from Columbia Bridal Boutique, along with flower girl and bridesmaids dresses. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our wedding was postponed for 2 years because of the pandemic so my nieces grew a lot in that time and needed their dresses altered. CBB took care of my nieces dresses just days before the wedding day. I highly recommend The Columbia Bridal Boutique.

Shayna Steingard: After a terrible experience at other wedding dress shops, I was blown away by the service and professionalism at the Bridal Boutique. Not only did they help me find the perfect dress, but they artfully made alterations to make sure it fit perfectly. For a plus size bride, I can't overstate how nice it was to find a store that caters to ALL sizes and made me feel beautiful every step of the way. For any brides in the DMV looking to find the perfect dress in a welcoming, service-oriented environment, I highly recommend the Bridal Boutique.

Anike Boyette: I had the most amazing experience at the Bridal Boutique! I worked with Ann, and she was the best. She listened to what I described and my budget, and pulled dresses that matched exactly what I was looking for. I actually had so many good options I couldn’t make a decision at first! The store is beautiful, spacious, elegant, and clean with a selection of dresses from reputable designers at all price points. I would recommend any bride try here for a great experience and great selection. And yes, I said yes to the dress!

Julie Choi: Sam was amazing to work with! I only had 5 months prior to my wedding dress (I blame my lack of research on how wedding dress shopping works 🤦‍♀️) and I let Sam know that I was undergoing tons of stress but she told me not to worry!! Sam was very knowledgeable on the designers that are relatively fast shipping and made the shopping experience exceptional. I also asked about an off-the-rack dresses and they showed me what they had to offer! It was lovely how she was able to accommodate so much in regards to my timeline and budget. She never brought out any dresses that was out of my budget range! I truly appreciated that. I ended up bringing a dress home (!!) that fit me perfectly off the rack!! She even offered me sample discount as well as for the veil! They truly know the definition of the phrase "taking care of you"!! I highly recommend checking this boutique out for all future brides out there!

Finnest Bey: I purchased my wedding dress with the help of Sam. She was so genuine and gave me her honest opinion. She respected my budget and worked hard to find similar dresses to what I had liked. Everyone at the Boutique were friendly and welcoming! To top it off my dress is absolutely GORGEOUS

Towanda Johnson: I really don't know where to begin. I will give it a try. I went into The Bridal Boutique just knowing I wanted a Mermaid style dress. Upon my arrival I was greeted by the two ladies at the front desk who were very welcoming. I was then introduced to my stylist Karly. Karly was soooo professional and helpful. She asked me questions about my wedding and what type of dress I was interested in. Karly hit it out of the park helping find my dream dress. I'm writing this review because she so nice and made me feel so comfortable and I want everyone to know about the exceptional customer service that I received at The Bridal Boutique. Again, thank you Karly!!!

Taylor Hopkins: My entire experience from start to finish was absolutely incredible and so much FUN. My consultant was Holly, and I can't rave enough about how amazing she is. She made me feel like I was the only person in the store. I am an out of state bride, and had a vision of what I was looking for. Holly pulled most of my dresses and they were exactly what I was looking for AND more! She was so fun, kind, and listened to every single detail. I actually ended up saying YES to a dress here. I would recommend this boutique to anyone looking for their dress.

Christie Graves-Arendt: Excellent store to find your wedding dress! I loved my dress - and way cheaper than all the stores in DC. The service was also exceptional. I was four months pregnant and my dress was suddenly too tight the week of my wedding. Their amazing seamstress was able to quickly take out my dress just enough that I could dance and eat freely for the big day. Thank you Bridal Boutique!

Echo Salisbury: Samantha was pleasant and even though I was a walk-in, she got straight to work trying to find me not only the dress I was hoping to find but others that would flatter my body type as well! I had an excellent time, and was super pleased with not just a 15% discount on the dress but $100 off of the veil I purchased! I found my dress here and would recommend The Bridal Boutique to anyone looking for their dream dress!

Colleen McKenna: I truly could not have had a better bridal appointment! The Bridal Boutique welcomed me and my family with open arms. From the moment we walked in we felt like their #1 priority! They took their time to get to know me, my family and my story! They made the experience fun, low stress and easy! It was easy to find my perfect dress in that environment!

Twice Upscale Resale: what do users think?


Lora Davis: I love this place! It is a great place to go for anything bridal, including mother of the bride dresses. There's a fun vibe in the shop. I noticed that brides were treated in a special way. This is a good way to get quality formal wear without the high cost.

Alyssa Palumbo: I can’t say enough good things about this place. I’ve been recommending it to all my friends and family. I found the dress of my dreams here and the price was incredible. So affordable!!! My dress was basically in new condition with the tags still on it. All the dresses I tried on were in fabulous condition! I had so much fun here. I wasn’t rushed at all. The girls working were so helpful and let us take lot of pictures. The shop is spacious and clean. If I ever need another dress for anything I’ll be back! Thank you so much for helping me afford my dream dress.

Patricia Kidd: We were looking for a dress for my daughters Formal. Bobbi greeted us right away when we walked in. The store had a decent amount of dresses but I was expecting more. Luckily even with a lower inventory, we found the perfect dress. The prices were reasonable and we were very pleased with our dress shopping experience. The picture does not do it justice the dress is gorgeous!

Erika Morgan: This shop is fantastic! They have a ton of beautiful designer dresses at reasonable prices. Also, the service was on point. The sales team was always right there when we needed assistance but not in your face.

Sadie Roser: the entire staff is so nice & helpful. i found a dress i really liked but it had a small rip in it. despite the store being fairly busy, several staff members there were so helpful; they looked at the tear and gave me a reduced price for the dress. they even gave me a business card for a seamstress they recommend. such a great experience!

Joanna Tice: Klaudia and all the staff at Twice are delightful to shop with! Very kind, patient, and offer help when needed. I felt free to shop through a nice variety of dresses without feeling rushed. Tonight was wonderful and I can't believe I just found the perfect wedding dress! Thank you so much♡

Kate Miller: I wish I could give 10 stars. I cannot say enough good things about this store. I had a pretty tight budget for my wedding dress and I was starting to get discouraged. When I called a bunch of stores and told them my budget, they said they might have something on their sale rack; but most dresses started at $1,300. I recently found out about this store on FB. I didn't have an appointment but I stopped in the other evening to look around. I couldn't believe the large selection and designer names. So many different sizes and prices, and the dresses are basically in brand new condition. There is truly something for everyone. I tried on probably 12 different dresses and none of them were over $750 (most of them were way under that). The last dress I tried on ended up being my dream dress and I bought it! I couldn't be happier with the dress or price. The employees are also very friendly and helpful.

Leah Winand: I’m sooo so glad I went to this place first for my wedding dress shopping! Love love love this place. I worked mostly with Hannah. They were so laid back and only helped as much as you wanted. I was able to pick out dresses that I liked instead of them picking all the dresses for me. It’s a really cool store with a nice chill vibe. They put no pressure on you to rush or find a dress. I was the only appointment that day so I could stay longer than my 90 minute appointment which was nice. I found my wedding dress for $400 which was a huge win in my opinion! Would recommend to anyone who wants a laid back and comfortable wedding dress experience and doesn’t want to pay thousands of dollars for a dress you will most likely only wear once! Highly highly recommend!!! :)

Kendra Kirk: The ladies here are so friendly and helpful! They also have a nice selection of dresses, with different styles and prices. This was the first place I went to try on dresses, so I was disappointed that they didn't offer to measure me when I mentioned I had no idea what size I was. They mentioned going by your jeans size, but I still ended up being several sizes off, and wasting precious time! I also purchased a dress that was marked as 50% off the price tag and was so proud of my amazing discount, until I checked online and saw that it is offered for the exact same price at the retailer. Still, I'm happy with my dress, and it was an overall positive and pleasant experience.
Response: Kendra, I appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately we do not operate like a traditional bridal shop where brides are measured to determine the size that needs to be ordered. We have a combination of new and once worn gowns that that are various designers that all follow different measurement guidelines. We always strive to create the best experience possible.

Debbi H: A magical place full of gorgeous gowns... bridal, prom, flower girl, and mother of the bride. They also have some shoes, veils, etc. We were happy with the large selection and the prices are great. My daughter found her wedding dress here. The service was also awesome! Everyone is so nice and helpful. They don't do alterations here but they do offer a recommendation. Dresses are one of a kind, so it's worth visiting more than once and I recommend making an appointment.

Gown & Glove Bridal Consignment: what do users think?


Carol Muldoon: I have walked past Gown & Glove probably six zillion times since it opened on Cornwall Ave, most often while on my way to get breakfast at Arlis's next door. Finally, I had the occasion (literally) to stop in when my daughter needed a prom dress. I was super impressed with their collection of fancy gowns in every shape, color, and size. There were super formal options, as well as less formal dresses too. In the front of the store are two racks with shorter gowns, and in the back are racks and racks of longer gowns. The owner, Blanca, was really helpful in showing us how to navigate the store, even though she was simultaneously doing a bridal gown fitting while throngs of moms/teens circled the store looking for prom attire. The store was scheduled to close for the day when we were there, but being the savvy biz owner that she is Blanca stayed open with a smile on her face and we never felt rushed to finish our shopping. While my daughter ultimately didn't find her perfect dress here, I can safely say this will be our number one stop for future formal shopping. Oh, and they've got shoes, accessories, and wedding decor too! Not to mention in-house alterations. This is definitely a one-stop shop for all things fancy-pants in downtown Bham.

Briana Gerber: Went in not expecting to find my dress but to get ideas of what I liked and fell in love with a couple dresses there! FOUND MY DRESS! And the lady who helped me was absolutely amazing and so helpful and nice! Would recommend this store to everyone I know, even if it's just for a fancy non-wedding dress or accessories! Thank you so much!

Erika Carbaugh: The staff are so sweet and helpful! I found the perfect dress and the shop owner advised me on the best timeline for alterations and helped me look though jewelry to accessorize!

shannon smallwood: Found the perfect dress! There was so much to choose from in this little gem of a store. Lots of size and style and price ranges. Highly recommended for thrifty brides!

Becky Sue Anderson: Blanca is awesome, she really has an eye for what style looks good on women of all different shapes and sizes. She helped us tremendously with choosing not only my daughter's wedding dress, but my other daughter's maid of honor dress and my dress as well! Thanks so much! Definitely recommended anyone looking for a wedding/prom/party dress need to visit her shop.

Maddie Brooks: HIGHLY Recommend! The owner is such a sweet woman, knows exactly what she’s doing. I walked in shortly after my engagement and found literally THE perfect dress. It fits like a glove. A consignment dress, and it was only $250. It is beautiful, I cannot wait to wear it down the isle. She did the alterations perfectly. She is easy to communicate with (especially being that I actually live in California but everything for my wedding is happening up here). She came in on her day off from maple falls to do my final fitting because I only had flown into Bellingham for two days. I couldn’t ask for better customer service. She is an absolute angel!!!! I also wanted the bottom of the skirt of my dress dyed and she enlisted the help of a nice younger gal (I cannot remember her name :( ) to do the coloring. It turned out so so beautiful. Everything I could’ve ever imagined. 10/10 for these guys for everything- customer service, their hard work, their will to go above and beyond for everything they did for me, not to mention their AMAZING prices- would highly recommend for any brides on a tight budget. Thank you ladies for everything, I cannot wait to wear the dress on my day ❤️

Sydney Bolinger: Amazing experience here with Blanca - we went to another local bridal shop and not one word was spoken to us. At Gown & Glove, Blanca was super helpful, not pushy, and so kind! We found the perfect dress and had such a large variety to choose from. Super easy process to get ‘er done. How cool is it to recycle a wedding dress, something that is only ever lightly worn once!?

amberjoy c: I have consigned and bought from Gown and Glove and I can't believe the amazing pieces they have there. Dropping off my stuff was easy, and great to get an unexpected check in the mail! The prices are so affordable, and the quality of the dresses make you feel like you bought brand new! Always friendly service. Wish I had a reason to go back. Next time I need a "special occasion" dress I will be going here!

Zoe Rae: I cannot say enough good things about Blanca!! The dress selection was excellent, she was able to work with my budget, and her alterations turned my “almost perfect” dress into my dream wedding dress!

Diana Yu: This store was amazing! There was a great and varied selection across a huge range of sizes. I rarely am able to find more than one dress for my small size, but this store had at least six wedding dresses in my size. The dresses were also well-organized by size but also by color and style (e.g. poofy or not poofy skirt). Alterations can also be done in store for an affordable price proportional to the changes that need to be done, and very quickly. The lady was not pushy at all and extremely helpful, suggesting things she thought I might like but also giving me space. My lacy, long wedding dress cost me $225 total, including minor alterations that were done in an hour!

Retulled Boutique: what do users think?


Redd Lovely1: I found my dress at Retulled after having a horrible failed appointment at DB. I needed a beach wedding dress and they kept bringing out these heavy fabrics and completely unflattering dresses. My girls and I went to Retulled and the dress I bought was the one Amy suggested! It didn’t fit perfectly, but she told me The Sewing Lady could help with that! And they did! Several months later I called Amy in a panic because the accessories I bought did NOT go with my dress. She calmed me down, told me not to freak out and scheduled an appointment. Once I arrived and put my dress on, she brought out several veils and pieces of jewelry. We tried different combinations until my look was perfected. I added the hair piece after deciding how I was going to wear my hair. I am now looking to consign some bridal items and wouldn’t go anyplace else. Amy delivered and then some. I truly thank you!
Response: You are so welcome! Thank you for these beautiful words. I’m truly humbled.

R Shaw: Amy is amazing. I emailed her because I was looking for a dress for my sister a few weeks ago. She didn't have what we needed at the time. Weeks later, when some dresses came in that she thought we may like, Amy emailed me to ask if we were still looking. We set an appointment and they made my sister feel like a princess. We said yes to the dress, a tiara and earrings. Very reasonable prices. Cute Boutique! Friendly staff!
Response: Thank you for the opportunity Renee! Those appointments are the ones that remind me why we do what we do. We had such great energy in the store after you left. It was still there on Saturday! Have a great time!

Debbie Fites: My daughter and I went here today looking for a wedding dress. We were greeted warmly by Abby. Amy and Abby both were so helpful. This was a fun, awesome experience. I can't say enough good things about how kind and sweet they were and helpful in the fit of the dress and finding what my daughter was interested in. She got a gorgeous dress that came from several that Amy pulled for her to try. We are so happy with this experience and want everyone to know what an awesome experience we had. I highly recommended Retulled to anyone looking for a wedding dress or accessories! We also purchased a veil. Thank you Amy and Abby!
Response: Thank you Debbie! We really enjoyed working with Ellie! I’m sure the rest of this wedding will be just as fun and spirited as she is!

Alexandria Ciraza: I found my wedding dress at Retulled Boutique! It was my first stop so I was a little nervous, but Amy was truly wonderful! She was so easy-going and truly felt like she was one of the bridesmaids! The selection was incredible and so was the experience! I highly recommend!
Response: Thank you Alexandria!!! To be honest, I felt like one of the bridesmaids! Lol, you were all so much fun!

Eliza Gellis: We had a wonderful experience at Retulled! The owner was very communicative with us (even though she was on vacation) and happily booked a double appointment for myself and my fiancee. The dress selection was broad, but not so much that it was overwhelming, and there were vintage dresses, too. Amy was truly lovely during our appointment. She was incredibly helpful, kind, and fun. The prices were truly excellent: my fiancee and I got both our dresses and veils for about $700 total. If anyone has doubts about purchasing a gently-loved gown--don't. The dresses and veils are in pristine condition and shopping at Retulled saved us literally thousands of dollars. I would absolutely recommend it!!
Response: The handwritten thank you note made my day! It was my pleasure to work with you and Jean and I am so pleased that you chose Retulled Boutique.

Lainey Bell: I absolutely loved my dress. The staff are so welcoming. Great customer service. I loved purchasing something second hand. They also have wonderful accessories. I recommend emailing them from the website to schedule a wedding dress shopping timeslot. They also post on Instagram so you can view the dresses. Dresses in many sizes and affordable price range (some dresses under $250)
Response: Thank you Lainey! It was our pleasure!

Angela Daniels: I can't say enough good things about the owner, Amy. Helpful, kind, understanding about budget. She actually picked out my daughter's dress & it is perfect for her. She knows her stuff. Highly recommend!!
Response: Thank you Angela!! It’s a pleasure!

Kristi Stephens: I had the absolute best experience finding my perfect dress here. I had no idea what I wanted or didn't want and they were very patient with me. What I remember most if the kindness. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful! I will be recommending this place to everyone! So many choices in all different and affordable price ranges! Thank you so much ladies!
Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Thank you for letting us be a part of it! Amy

Cadence Baugh: Going to Retulled was ABSOLUTELY the best decision for wedding dress shopping. Let me provide some backstory… My fiancé and I are having a very low-key and low-budget wedding. He is still in school and I am a young professional, so we don’t have a lot of money for a “normal-priced” wedding. I was budgeting $300 - $500 for a wedding dress. And let me just say, my first wedding dress experience left me in tears by the end of the day. I went to the Bridal Superstore and David’s Bridal in Indy. I was in shock to discover that the cheapest dress was $700!! I started to rethink whether or not I should even have a wedding because I could not even fathom how I could pay that kind of money - and for just a small part of the wedding at that! After doing lots of research online, I was starting to feel like I was going to have to pony out the big dough or get no dress at all… I found out about Retulled and thought I should give it a try. Everything about my experience at Retulled was perfect and even better than any experience I had at the big box wedding dress retailers! At the other places before, the dresses were not only expensive, but also very unflattering. I couldn’t believe my eyes when every single dress I tried on at Retulled was so lovely and flattering and completely in my price range! One gorgeous dress that was my favorite for a while was even lower than my price range. It got to a point where I was having a difficult time even deciding between four dresses! From start to finish, Amy and Ari were incredible. They are genuinely kindhearted ladies who were so patient with me. They listened to all of my ideas and offered their own suggestions. The dress I ended up deciding on was one Ari picked out specifically for me based on my body shape and preferences even though it was not one I would’ve picked out myself. I tried it on and fell in love with it immediately! Both Amy and Ari are so knowledgeable about what looks good. They clearly knew what looked good on me better than I knew myself! I was worried that I was becoming annoying because I was so indecisive that I had to try dresses on over and over again. They were never bothered for a second and patiently allowed me to process each dress thoroughly. The location itself was so lovely too. It is located in a little pink Victorian-style house that made you feel like you were in a luxury boutique. Every moment of this experience was magical and everything I ever could have wanted from such an important moment in my life!
Response: Thank you Cadence! I’m so glad that you were happy with your experience! I hope that you both had the wedding you dreamed of. Amy

Amanda Salgueiro: I purchased my dress here (in 2019) after having some incredibly uncomfortable experiences at other bridal shops. The staff was incredibly flexible and helpful. I am someone that doesn't have a typical look they gravitate towards, so being able to sift through the options they had was really helpful. They also didn't make me feel pressured and didn't force me to put on a veil or hold flowers to make me say yes. They also provide some really great recommendations for alterations locally. The options they have are beautiful and they carried many styles when I went. My dress looked brand new. I am so happy I chose second hand. You should definitely visit their shop.
Response: Thank you Amanda! I am extremely humbled. I’m glad you found your dress with us.

Chaz Bridal & Consignment: what do users think?


Sara Gurney: Vicky is a lovely person and did a good job on the alterations of my mother of the bride dress and she told me up front that she charged $55 per hour but, I had no idea it would take her 9 hours to hem and fix the neck of my dress. My dress only cost $200 new! We had my daughters dress altered by someone else and to do almost the exact same things to her beaded bridal dress we were only charged $110. Vicky was willing to work with me and she lowered the price a little but still charged me $375. I would use her again only if I got a firm price up front.
Response: How I wish all dresses were designed and constructed the same to be able to give a firm price. However, they are not which makes it difficult to do. Not all seamstresses value their time, skill, and experience like I do or charge an hourly rate. I take pride in the 35-40 years of experience I have in the quality alterations I do so they are done professionally and look as good as they do. I had no idea I would spend 9 hours on the alterations until they were finished. This being the reason I discussed the cost with you so we could arrive at a mutually agreed upon price. With the amount I had to take the shoulders up (between 1 ½”-2”) I had to completely remove the sleeves and stitch them back in to fit properly to not have gathers in the sleeves at the shoulder seams. At the second fitting you were pleased I had done this way. The armhole seam was bound with a piece of tulle binding and if I had not stitched it back on, the seam would have been in danger of pulling apart since the outer layer is tulle and lace. The neckline adjustment I did had a similar type of tulle binding which I stitched most of it back on by hand so not to completely remove it to stitch back on. The hem on your dress was three layers, one tulle and lace, the other two knit layers. One of the knit layers was stitched to the tulle and lace layer at the side seams which had to be opened up first before hemming the knit layer, then stitched together again at the sides before hemming the tulle layer. All three layers were stitched together at the center back slit which was done in a different way than I did to help reduce some time since I realized the time was getting high. I do know there are not many seamstresses out there who would have taken on the dress to alter with the complexity of the dress construction. Please reach back out to me if you are unhappy with the mutually agreed price and feel it needs further discussion. Thank you for the kind parts of the review you did, however I feel the rating deserved better than one star.

Margaret Hertlein: Vicki is so nice and easy to work with. I needed my bridesmaid’s dress hemmed and she did a great job. The reason why I am giving three stars is because it was extremely expensive. I had only the front half of the dress hemmed and she charged me $115. I will take responsibility for the fact that I did not ask about price beforehand. I also agreed to pay the amount when she told me the price at the time of pick up. However, I’ve had alterations done in the past that were more involved and a lot less expensive. My sister had alterations done for her bridal gown elsewhere and she was charged $110 for a full hem and alterations done to the top half of the dress.
Response: Thank you for the nice review on the alterations I did on your bridesmaid dress. I apologize the cost was more than what other seamstresses may charge and would like the opportunity to explain why the charge was $110 ($115 included tax) for the alterations. I currently charge $55/hour and take pride in the 35-40 years of experience in the quality professional alterations I do to look as good as they do. I tried to shorten only the front and blend into the back, but realized the needle marks from the previous stitching would show due to fabric being velvet. To prevent this from happening I shortened the dress all the way around including the lining layer. The way the hem was previously put in, the stitching was difficult to open up so I could trim off the excess amount needed to shorten. I did put in more time than the 2 hours I charged for the hem. Thank you again for the review and ranking of three stars.

Danielle Paulson: So happy with my experience here! Vicki is truly talented. She tailored my Kleinfeld wedding dress and thought of everything that I didn't even think to ask. She did a perfect job with tulle and beading which isn't easy. Worth every penny.

Nadya Grace Lichtenberg: I am so grateful for this shop! The most beautiful dress I could find, at an incredible price, with great service!! Highly recommend!!

Hilary Dreidame: This place is a gem! Vicki was wonderful in helping me try on wedding dresses and gave honest feedback when I asked for it. I went in alone but felt like I was shopping with family. She had beautiful things, and a great selection at reasonable prices. I definitely recommend checking them out.
Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review! I am so happy you had a pleasant experience at my boutique. I strive to give each and every customer the best customer service possible on their visit.

Christian Nelson: Vicki was very helpful & got me into my dream dress within the first few I tried on! She was extremely accommodating with any mishaps that popped up as well, which I very much appreciated. With my last minute shopping, she was also very accommodating as far as my alterations as well! Not to mention my dress was new with tags, intricate & less than half the price you would pay at a big store. A must before you buy your dress!

Madison Stuhlreyer: A one stop shop for bridal accessories for those looking to not spend a fortune. When I started shopping for bridal accessories, I was immediately baffled at how much my dream wedding veil would cost me. The bridal boutique I was getting my dress from priced their cathedral length veils around $400-$450. I understand and respect the craftsmanship that goes into the creation, but I couldn’t wrap my head around spending that much on an accessory. Just when I thought I’d have to change my dream to something more budget-accommodating, I decided to check out Chaz Bridal. The shop’s owner, Vicki, was extremely friendly and helpful when my mom and I visited to browse her veil options. Vicki walked us through and educated us about different veil aspects and components, things I had never even considered. She guided us on choosing the right lace color and even different trim options she could provide for us. Not only does this boutique supply bridal accessories, but bridal jewelry, formal shoes and a large selection of consignment wedding dresses for a fraction of the price of retail. The owner even offers alterations as well. Overall, I absolutely loved my experience here and will definitely be recommending to those in the market for a bridal boutique that offers a personalized experience.

Allie Hilditch: Vicki, the proprietor, is the most knowledgeable, skillful, and pleasant seamstresses I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her alterations were high quality, timely, and worked beautifully with the dress. I couldn't even identify half the alterations she made on my wedding dress, the work was so well done! The fit is beyond flattering and the her bustle job was absolutely perfect for the dress and my dancing needs. Overall, my experience with her was so positive, I look forward to working with and chatting with her again! I found her prices to be fabulous, her help and suggestions regarding veil options and belts/appliques were spot on and made me feel more beautiful than ever in the dress, and I appriciated the genuine care and attention she had for me and my dress. In an industry where I often feel like just another customer with just another dress, I am ecstatic to have found someone who is so genuine and also very talented. Thank you, Vicki! You turned a fairly pretty dress in to one that made the groom squeak and blush when he first saw me in it!

Kristen Ahern: I would 100% recommend Chaz Bridal. I was new to the Cincinnati area, and had 2 months left before my wedding, and needed my dress altered. Vicki was kind enough to take me on as a client even though her schedule was completely booked for my wedding day. She did a great job on my alterations. My wedding day would not have been the same without her!

Jennifer Millette: AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Vicki was very helpful even though I didn't have an appointment that day. She helped me find my dream dress for the perfect price. There were a few tiny dark stains on the dress which she got out for me before I bought it. The store was neat & organized. I even found a hair pin that matched the dress. Thank you Vicki!!

Something Borrowed Bridal Boutique: what do users think?


Enea Brotzman: Alisha is beyond wonderful! I am so grateful for her and her amazing shop! She is so incredibly knowledgeable and makes the process a blast! After buying my dress at Something Borrowed Bridal Boutique, I decided to also have my alterations done through her shop as well. It was the greatest decision I could have made because they did an absolutely wonderful job. I spent about 10 hours in my dress and I was completely comfortable the whole time. After getting our photos back, I am so incredibly happy with all of the photos and a lot of that is because of the amazing dress! If you're looking for your wedding dress, Something Borrowed Bridal Boutique is the place to go! Thank you so much for everything Alisha!

Elena Rubinetti: 5 stars! I wasn't sure what to expect my first time bridal dress shopping, but knew I wanted to try and shop second hand. Alisha was very knowledgeable, picked out dresses that fit exactly my vision and budget, and was so helpful throughout it all. I went to a typical bridal shop later and had a fine experience, but Something Borrowed is truly something special. I left feeling so excited about my dress and can't wait for the big day. I highly recommend checking it out!

Sheila Bowman: Such a great experience! The shop owner is so sweet, professional, and knowledgeable. She made it a really nice experience for both me and my guests. She was so easy to work with and good at finding my style. She has a great selection of beautiful gowns at fair prices. Not to mention the decor inside is also so cute!

Katie Kelly: I went dress shopping last week with minimal hopes of ever finding something beautiful & affordable. However, Alisha, the owner was so kind and patient with me. I knew what I liked and didn’t like but she still took the time to help me find the perfect dress. I can’t wait to wear it officially!! Her shop is absolutely adorable as well, rustic and homey at the same time!

Andrew & Lidy Farmer: Alisha is truly amazing! She was super nice and helped me trying all the dresses! I went by myself and she took pics of me ! She was super helpful! I got my dress from her boutique and I love it!!

Sarah Tomaszewski: What a beautiful place this really is. The owner is extremely helpful. This place carries high end top of the line one of a kind pieces for a way better price than buy them retail. If you want to invest in a beautifully unique gown that will truly make you feel your best this is the place for you! Also carries mother of the bride dresses, veils, & jewelry!

Kathleen Gifford: This is a wonderful boutique! Shop for your special say in a lovely atmosphere without pressure. The owner is fair, friendly, and compassionate! Thank you for being nonjudgmental and sympathetic at a difficult time! Do not hesitate to shop here.

Arianna Delgado: I had an amazing experience here. I felt taken care of and the staff were very good at picking out items that I absolutely adored. Beautiful dresses with beautifully cheap prices. I would recommend this place to anybody!

Jennifer D: *wedding dresses* rehearsal dresses* rental wedding dresses*lipsense*hair pieces* My experience was great! Alisha is very welcoming. I was in sweats when i went and I never felt judged- which a lot of places can make you feel! I was treated like gold. She even helped me with the hair pieces so I could get an idea what they would look like in my hair. They have wedding dresses, some bridesmaid dresses, even mother of the bride/groom dresses. They also rent, too! Which is good if you don't need alterations. They sell lipsense as well (and smaller ones too, great for destination weddings too!). So glad someone started a consignment shop for bridal wear because I thought it was a great idea!

Ryan Murphy: Just stopped in and met the owner. She was very nice and the shop has a lot of really nice dresses! I would definitely recommend checking it out!

Astraea Bridal: what do users think?


Emma Critchley: I was in a panic trying to find a wedding dress after an unfortunate online shopping experience as my wedding is in 6 weeks. I called Astraea Bridal and Laura was so reassuring that she would be able to help me find something in my teeny-tiny budget. Due to me living out of the county, she first suggested I try another shop, and then if I didn’t find anything there, she would follow up with me to get me booked with her. That following day, she sent me a text and asked how it went at the other bridal shop, and I told her I wanted to book with her. I wanted to see what they had in their shop as I wasn’t set on any from the other shop, and due to her amazing customer service before even stepping foot in their shop, I had a good feeling it was going to be a positive experience. Astraea Bridal did not disappoint. The shop is beautifully decorated, clean, and organized. They were very, very respectful of my budget. During my appointment I felt like Laura was in tune with my needs and focused on caring for me and finding me a dress; I didn’t feel like her attention was elsewhere. Both Laura and Leslie stayed over an hour after they closed on a Saturday evening so I could find my dress. The experience could not have gone any better. They were amazing, and I would recommend them to anyone. Don’t shy away from consignment, even if you’re not on a tight budget - their dress selection is high quality and they take care of their brides. Thank you, Laura and Leslie for taking such good care of me!
Response: Emma! I am so incredibly grateful for this well thought out and meaningful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write it. I'm so happy we were able to find something you feel so beautiful in. -Laura

Alice Ledbetter: I don't normally leave reviews, but this place blew my mind. I am very plus-sized, like 6'0 320lbs plus size, and I was DREADING wedding dress shopping because I knew there would be nothing in my size and I would just be reminded of how much I don't fit. I found this place at the Mount Baker Theatre Wedding Expo and it was beyond amazing, I had multiple dresses that fit, I got to try multiple styles, and I got the pick from several dresses that were all GORGEOUS. And the prices are unbeatable, my aunt (a professional dressmaker) was at one point going to make my dress, because of the aforementioned plus-sizedness, and she said straight up even with free labor these dresses are cheaper than the cost of materials would be. Seriously I wish I could give this place 10 stars.
Response: Alice, thank you so much for taking the time to write this review! I'm so glad that you were able to feel confident and have options to choose from. Your gown is beautiful, and you look stunning in it!

Miriam Barger: I would give Astraea Bridal five hundred stars if I could! They helped me pick out my wedding dress with education, support and all of the options. I was comfortable on my wedding day (with two buns in the oven) because of their expertise. I could not have been in better hands 💗💗 Thank you so much, Astraea Bridal!
Response: Miriam- Thank you so much for the kind review! We cant wait to see wedding pictures (and the babies!) Congratulations - Leslee and Laura

Emma Fox: Astraea SAVED the day for me! Like many couples, my wedding was delayed during Covid. I originally found my dream dress at Astraea in 2019. After 2.5 years I tried it on again, and while I still loved it something felt "off," but I struggled to explain how. I felt confused, disheartened, and struggled to identify what I was searching for in my wedding attire. The owners of Astrea had my back and welcomed me in for another appointment with open arms, open minds, and an enthusiastic attitude in helping me find the right look, fit, and feel. They helped me try on multiple dresses, as well as my 2019 "OG" dress. They supported me in exploring different styles and patiently took the time to truly understand what I did and didn't like about every dress I tried on. They helped me find the words to express how my style vision had evolved, and in doing so helped me find THE DRESS! My dress choice is radically different from what I selected 2.5 years ago, and it's something I never envisioned for myself. Lesson learned: trust the EXPERTS :) If it weren't for Leslee and Laura I would have moved forward wearing a wedding dress I was no longer 100% confident in. Thanks to these two incredible stylists I was able to discover what I was really looking for (something that no amount of scrolling on Pinterest would have helped with). I felt supported, empowered, and valued every time I stepped foot in their store. Laura and Leslee are EXPERTS at their craft- they create the experience that every bride dreams of having when shopping for their wedding dress. Book with Astraea today, I promise you will be so glad you did!!!!
Response: Emma, thank you so much for the review! It was truly an honor helping you find a dress that made you feel empowered.💪 You are a knock out in the gown you chose. Cant wait to see those wedding day pictures!

Kasey C: Astraea Bridal shop is so clean and lovely. I've always dreamed of having that perfect wedding dress try-on experience and this was it for sure. I always try to live as sustainably as I can, I feel so fortunate to have this shop in little Mount Vernon to help me accomplish that. I was nervous that they wouldn't have anything in my size/budget but I tried on probably seven beautiful gowns and there were plenty more on the rack that would have worked. When I went, the store was organized by size and price (one side of the store <1,000, so plenty of options!!) Laura was AMAZING. I'm a shy person who is easily overwhelmed when I'm the center of attention and she was so kind and really made the experience personal. Right from the start I knew I'd find my dress there for sure. She just kept pulling out dresses that were so magical and beautiful. Good thing I had my MOH and mom with me or I wouldn't have been able to choose just one! She also made sure I was set with my vendors and talked alterations with me (good thing because I honestly didn't know how any of that worked lol. I had never heard the word bustle in my life) Thanks Laura!
Response: Thank you so much for this awesome review, Kasey! I had a great time helping you find your perfect gown! I'm so glad I was able to provide you with such a memorable experience! - Laura

Kayla Dolan: Laura was so amazing and helpful today with trying on dresses. She makes it such a personal experience and actually takes time to try and understand your style and get in your head to see your vision, which she totally did for me! I bought my dress today when shopping with my sister who is also engaged and I didn’t even plan on getting anything today. I’m so excited! It was awesome to buy from a place that does consignment. I will be altering it with them as well. Thanks Laura! Here’s a couple pics of ones that aren’t “the one” but just as beautiful!!

April Callahan: I had the most amazing experience finding my dress at Astraea! It was my first time trying on dresses and Laura made the experience so easy. I ended up falling in love with the first dress I tried on, but I kept trying things on just to make sure I knew what I wanted. Laura was very patient with me as I tried on dress after dress and ultimately put the first one back on. Then she found me a beautiful hair clip made by a local artist that matched my dress AND made me an appointment with the town seamstress for my alterations. I couldn't recommend this beautiful local shop more.
Response: Thank you so much for this review April! I'm so glad we were able to help you find the perfect gown!

Savannah Lee: Leslie was AMAZING. I was so scared to try on dresses, and she made it so easy. Not only did she listen to what I wanted, she managed to find me my dream dress in just one appointment. She even found a way to make my “above budget” dress, fit my budget!!! Even Laura came over and boosted my confidence with my dress decision. Such an amazing stress-free dress experience. Leslie made sure of it!
Response: Hi Savannah! Thank you so much for the review. We really enjoyed having you in the shop and we cant wait to see those wedding pictures! ❤️ -Leslee and Laura

Lauren Sigfusson: Had a lovely, once-in-a-lifetime experience at Astraea Bridal. Laura is extremely knowledgeable, kind and welcoming. She helped me feel comfortable throughout the process, answering my questions and suggesting gowns that looked great on me that I wouldn't have picked for myself. There was lots of variety and at great price points. The shop was clean and it was easy to look through gowns. Overall, a delightful experience for myself and those who came with me. I had a dress in mind when I went, which is the one I left with after trying on many others to make sure. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks so much for helping me find my perfect wedding dress.
Response: Thank you so much for the review Lauren! It was such a pleasure

Jessica Bajema: Laura at Astraea Bridal gave me the best experience I could imagine when searching for my wedding dress. I came in with a pretty open mind and she easily helped me narrow down what it was I liked and disliked about each dress I tried on. She has a great read on people and I felt so supported and encouraged! Not to mention each and every dress was beautiful, as was the store itself. It was a dream experience!
Response: Jessica! Thank you so much for this awesome review! I had a great time getting to know you! Your gown is so awesome.
