Found my dream dress here! It was worth the drive from Maryland to Warrenton, VA to find it. The staff is a little young and needs to improve on professionalism, but super friendly. My only complaint is for the lady who did my alterations. She is partnered with the store...she took my dress to be altered in her home studio and when it came back it had cat hair all over it. Fit perfectly, but tons of cat hair. I took it home anyway, since I was ahead of schedule with the fittings and the week of the wedding, I took it back to be steamed. However, she was very knowledgeable and did great work. She should really keep her alterations area cat free. Other than that, perfect!

I was so impressed with A Formal Affair!! I did not end up buying my dress here, but I made several visits and was more impressed here than with any store I had been to on my bridal gown hunt. Everyone that works here is incredible; helpful, sweet, patient. When I first quickly glanced through the racks, I wasn't sure if I would find enough dreses to try on; I was very wrong. They have a lot of gorgeous dresses! Let them help you pick some dresses based on your style preferences. I definitely recommend looking here for your dress!!

The formal affair was only the second shop I visited but I found my dress here and loved it. They have a great deal where you get a discount on future purchases if you buy your dress there. I went on to buy a headpiece, veil, shoes and garter. Everyone was so kind and helpful and the seamstress was excellent. I just recommended them to my good friend who is getting married and she has purchased her dress there too.

I bought my wedding dress at A Formal Affair in Warrenton. I enjoyed my fitting there because the representative who helped me did not talk and talk about each dress. She let my family and me discuss the merits. It is the only place I went looking for a dress and I have to say, I absolutely LOVED the one I picked. Overall, they don't have a large selection but they do have several great choices.

However, after that first time, the rest of our contact wasn't as pleasant. First, they told me that it might take up to 6 months to get there, which I know now is a ploy to buy time. I did everything the wedding planner books said to in order to kep up with my dress. They told me that it would come in in early to mid-July. This timeline was kind of a big deal to me because I live in Arizona and I needed to fly in to try it and get it altered. So of course, I flew in for a month and a half and it doesn't come in before my flight leaves, despite the fact that I had been told at least twice that it had all ready shipped and would be in any day. I then had to buy another plane ticket to come in and try the dress on. Their alterations lady hardly comes in, so there was no way to set up an appointment even a month beforehand so I had to go somewhere else for the alterations. However, I think that was definitely a good choice because the estimated price for even a bustle or hem were very high

So I do recommend looking at the dresses there but I would make sure that you have the time to wait and that you are in the Warrenton area.

I worked with Jill who was extremely helpful with a great sense of humor! The only downside to A Formal Affair is that they do not allow pictures. I think there was a dress there I really liked, but the next day, I couldn't really remember it so it was knocked out of contention for one that I was allowed to take pictures of myself in that I could think about and contemplate later that evening.

I did not buy my dress from here.

A Formal Affair in Warrenton, Virginia is great to work with and has a lovely new location. We rented 8 tuxedos from there (the groom's was free because we paid for at least 6) and it was pretty easy. It was the only place anywhere near Charlottesville, VA that we could find to rent brown tuxedos. The Calvin Klein was beautiful and they were very nice, high quality tuxedos. My husband decided to spring for the more expensive microfiber shirts and he was very glad. The wedding was on a Sunday and it was not a problem to pick them up Friday and return Monday morning. The only glitch was that we had ordered a bowtie for my dad instead of a long one so he'd be different from the groom and groomsmen. He was given a long tie and it wasn't discovered until it was too late. If possible, have everyone check their tuxedos to make sure everything is correct before you leave the store. Of course, you should really do this no matter where you rent them.

A Formal Affair was fantastic. We used them for our tuxedos and they were amazing. Everything came in on time, everyone's stuff fit well. The tuxedo's were incredible. They were the brown Calvin Klein tuxes, definitely get those. They had a huge selection if that is not your style as well. The employees were knowledgable and very nice.
