I've never left a review for somewhere that I didn't make a purchase, but that's exactly why Laurel Everly and her shop deserve 5+ stars....

I was just starting to look for a wedding dress when I visited my daughter and she suggested we go to 4Everly After. From the moment we arrived for our appointment, I was amazed by Laurel's professionalism as well as her laid-back nature. She was honest and fun to work with and showed us a beautiful variety of dresses with ZERO pushiness. I wound up purchasing a dress close to my home, and I was honestly disappointed that I won't get to work with Laurel! I couldn't recommend her more... in fact, if I could rate 4Everly higher than a 5, I would!

I loved this bridal boutique! The women here are amazing and very thoughtful. They tune into each bride's vision and only work with one bride at a time. No crowds here! They helped make my dress perfect. And they have one flat rate for alterations, which gets rids of a lot of detailed decision making. Highly recommend!

After a rough first outing at other bridal shops, 4Everly After was the perfect place to hit "restart" and find my dream dress (which ended up being something very different than what I was looking for!). Whenever I stopped in, Laurel was warm and welcoming, and as was her staff. Alterations were impeccable. However, there were a few communication breakdowns during the process. Alterations I was under the impression had been made between fittings were suddenly made by the final fitting (and were PERFECT). While this was a great relief in the end, it gave a stressed bride even more stress in the month leading up to the wedding. Open communication would have relieved some of my stress. But overall, very happy with the result!

I have mixed emotions about my experience with 4Everly After. I first met Laurel with my mom while shopping for a dress. We didn't find one there, but Laurel told us that if we found a dress elsewhere to bring it to her, she would all the fittings for a great price.
We ended up finding the dress in NYC and brought it to Laurel. We really liked her and her place. She is very friendly and easy to work with. My dress (a sample) was many sizes too big, so it needed to be taken in a lot.
As my fittings progressed, I became less confident. As an example, at my first fitting (about 10 months before the wedding), I asked for the eyelash trim on the lace to be removed. I was assured it would be by the next fitting. I had a total of 5 fittings, and was always told it would be off "next time." The eyelash trim was still on 3 days before the wedding, and was only removed just in time for the wedding.
The biggest frustration came on wedding day. My mom had arranged to pick up the dress at 9:30 am, however when she showed up, no one was there. She called, and got no answer. Finally, after about 45 minutes, Laurel called and said she'd be there at 11:30 to let my mom in and give her the dress - 2 hours after the appointment time. It was extremely stressful to not know if I was going to be able to get my dress in time for my wedding.
Although the price was right, in the end it may not have been worth the stress.

I read nightmare accounts of finding a bridal gown. I was prepared for scams, rudeness and feeling pressured. I was dress shopping alone and ready to be defensive and disappointed because I had a very small budget and disappearing dreams of having an elegant gown of quality.

I actually walked into 4Everly After by mistake. I had an appointment at a different bridal salon but made an error and went here instead - by sheer coincidence the person who had a 5PM appointment that day never showed up so they were able to help me. Laurel Everly was nothing but sweet, charming and ready to help.
I told her my budget and she found several gowns, some couture, that were under my price point, at the budget, or just barely a touch over. She had me feeling comfortable enough with my body and appearance where I tried on gowns I never would have considered just by looking at photos in magazines.
I ended up with an Eddy K gown - pale ivory satin, A-Line fit and flare, draped, with hand beaded bodice and a chapel length train.
Here's the thing - she let me take photos as I was shopping alone and wanted feedback from my mom - who lives in Florida, is elderly and has cancer and couldn't travel to be with me. The tags and labels were still in the gown - some places remove these to prevent you from shopping around. I decided that the price I was offered was unbeatable for the quality.
The alterations were minimal, fast and reasonable.
She had great advice on how to handle the areas where I felt insecure about my body. She let me bring in one of our wedding party at a dress fitting to take a video of how to bustle the gown (which came in SO handy later).
The dress was beautiful and perfect for me. I always felt not like a customer but a welcome guest. She never pressed accessories or expensive alterations. I wish I knew more brides to send her way. I will be returning to her shop for formal wear in the future!

This is such a great little shop. They had a wide selection of dresses, and they know them so well. I went in with an idea for a dress and I just wasn't finding it. I let her pick the dress, and that was it. They were able to give me a custom gown with the alterations I wanted and it was glorious. I went to other shops and they were not nearly as personable. Highly recommended for the wedding dress.

I also got the bridesmaids here. There was a bit of a confusion and one of the dresses came in the wrong color, but it turns out that was my misunderstanding. The fit on the bridesmaids dresses were spot on.

Having gone through the DC bridal boutique circuit over the past month or so, this place stands out by a mile. After quite a few disappointing experiences in other Old Town boutiques, I walked in here, got five star treatment, and said "hellz yes to my dress" (finally!).

The boutique itself is bright, organized, and spacious enough so you don't feel like you're competing with other brides for mirror space. The actual selection of dresses will blow you away - Laurel and Brittney (mother and daughter team) hand pick the dresses each season and their attention to detail is very apparent. If you love lace up dresses - this place has an amazing selection!!! This place caters for every body type, and if you are not a size zero you'll be pleased to find out that the samples actually fit! Most of the samples in this store fit me like a glove, so I really got a better understanding of how the dress will look in real life. And - most importantly - the prices seemed reasonable. The 10% purchase price rewards (can use to purchase anything in the store) and $100 off for liking them on facebook go a long way.

I'm not as into this whole bridal dress shopping thing as other brides may be, but honestly I couldn't have had a better experience than the one I had at 4Everly. Laurel, Brittney, and Miss Jeanie knew exactly what I was looking for and made my ideas a reality. They also made me feel super pretty/bridal when other boutiques had left me feeling tired/bloated/slightly angry!!!

TIP: check out their jewelry/veil selection: not marked up like other boutiques. The owners love to find a bargain and will pass those savings onto you :) Also try to come on a weekday night so you are not playing "battle of the brides"

After looking in countless dress shops, my experience at 4Everly After was by far the best experience! The woman that helped me was extremely professional and knowledgable. But the best part was that she made me feel welcome and beautiful in the dresses. I gave her a few pinterest pictures and an idea of what I was looking for and she immediately pulled out a bunch of dresses that were very much in line with what I was looking for.

I didn't end up buying my dress here, but was so impressed with the service that I brought my dress to her for alterations. She was incredibly patient with me and all the changes I wanted to make and gave me great advice and options for how to alter it. She was also VERY flexible and quick to respond. I can't say enough great things about my experience at this shop!

Although I didn't buy my dress here, Laurel was happy to provide alterations and handmade custom accessories. Her service exceeded my expectations and can not be happier. She doesn't display it much, but she hand makes custom accessories that re cute as can be and match perfectly with your attire. She made a sash for me and headpieces for my flower girls, everything turned out great!

I had my wedding dress and my rehearsal dinner dress altered with 4every after. I had gone to them to try on wedding dresses. Unfortunately I didn't find THE ONE there, but I was so impressed with how friendly and professional they were- really above and beyond all other dress stores that I had been to-and they had better prices for alterations than I had found anywhere else, so I chose 4everly for the alterations. And I was glad that I did. They did some pretty major restructuring on the waist of my gown and it turned out fantastic. They also had as many appointments as I needed and patiently dealt with me as I bridezilla'd with worry and indecision one time- they really helped to keep things positive and assure me it would all work out. They were also available after I had picked up my dresses for going over the bustle (which seems easy but is actually harder than I thought it would be!). I would definitely recommend them for wedding or bridesmaids dresses, accessories or alterations.
