Bridal Shop Recos in Northern VA

Recommended Posts

So I found my wedding dress while visiting in CT and unfortunately I can't find it anywhere locally in VA. Several shops say they carry my designer, but not my specific style. They're all willing to order it for me, though, so now I just need to decide which bridal shop to go with. I want somewhere I can trust to do the alternations, but doesn't feel so posh that I feel like a grubber walking in in jeans and t-shirt for my fittings.


So...any bridal shop suggestions in Northern VA? TIA!!!

I had the same thing happen to me... I found a dress in Charleston Wedding magazine and I wanted to try it on so I called the bridal shop in the magazine and got the style number and designer and then called a million (well not really...ahaha) bridal salons and NO ONE had the dress, they carried the designer but not that dress as a sample. I ended up going with another dress, but I did however buy it at a posh upscale bridal salon. And to be honest it was worth the extra couple bucks for the service and the attention that I received. You can walk into any where and get service with tee shirt and jeans as long as your head is held high and you make yourself look important....lol!


On the other hand... I can't say that I know of any good bridal salons in your area....sorry. But best wishes... I'm sure you'll make out great!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
