    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!

          I bought my dress from Bobbies Bobbie's Bridal

          They have many dresses and Bobbie was fantastic to work with.

            I got my dress at Country Miss in Maryland. It's not far from NoVA.
            I went there looking for one dress and ended up with another one. They have the best selection of any bridal shop I visited. EVER.
