I don't normally write reviews, but I had such a positive experience, I have to share.
I had a lot of family members who wanted to come with me to find my gown but I wanted a more intimate experience with my mom. My mom and I decided to go to a couple of different stores and find one or two that I liked on our own and then bring the rest of the family to be there when I actually bought a dress.
When my mom and I went, Bobbie let me pick a few dresses while she grabbed some she thought would look good on me. She ended up showing me the right type of silhouette while I chose the actual dress.
So now the problem was I completely fell in love with a dress that was exactly my size and was a brand new sample that no one else had even tried on. She said she couldn't guarantee they'd still have it when I came back a month later with family, so I decided to buy it that day with my mom.
After were explained the situation to Bobbie and I told her that I especially wanted my future mother in law to feel included, she came up with a brilliant solution.
Since we had bought the dress, she said we could keep it there and bring in my family to show them later without telling them we had already bought it. We came back a month later and Bobbie helped me pull a few dresses to try on for them, but then brought out my dress from the back after nothing else was working. I put on my dress (which nobody else knew I had already purchased) and everyone got to feel like they helped me make the decision, none the wiser. I still can't believe that Bobbie helped me create this second "fake" appointment so that I could have that special feeling with my mom and then again with my whole family. I really can't thank her enough.

Bobbie is the best! I found my dress and her tailors did an AMAZING job to make the dress my dream. She is so sweet and her staff are just as delightful. Bobbie also was great at helping me space out my payments to now have me overwhelmed by the dress and the alterations at the same time. This place is great!

I have been a regular customer of Bobbie's for years - mostly due to always being a bridesmaid in a friend or family member's wedding. Bobbie was always great to work with and it gave me a sense of community pride to do business with a local, family-owned business. When it was finally time for this bridesmaid to become a bride I knew I needed to visit Bobbie's Bridal Boutique.

I think I was in the store for less than 5 minutes when my mother and I both spotted THE dress. I tried it on and the fit was perfect - as if it had been custom-made! The fit was so perfect that I didn't even need to have it hemmed. (The only alteration required was having the straps adjusted which ran about $80.)

It was because of Bobbie's keen eye for bridal design that this dress made it to her shop. She said the dress caught her eye and she knew she needed to have it in store ASAP. Sure, Bobbie's carries all of the designers you see advertised in bridal magazines but she also has these hidden, one-of-a-kind gems! And what bride doesn't want to feel special and one-of-a-kind of her big day!

Bobbie's Bridal Boutique is every bit deserving of a 5-star review! Say yes to the dress at Bobbie's - you (and your checkbook) will be glad you did! After the wedding, I plan to come back to Bobbie's to have my dress altered to a shorter-length to wear on my anniversary!

I found my Alfred angelo dress there so I bought it because it was close to home. I bought the dress without even trying it on. She measured me and I received it a few months later. It was great but too big. The alterations are where it all started. Dorothy is great, but underpaid and she will agree to that if you ask her! Bobbie herself gets all of the money for the alterations so I would recommend taking it someplace else if you want to save on alterations! I paid over half the price of the dress to alter it. I needed the boning taken out, a bustle put in and the length changed. The top ended up being too big so Bobbie came over and adjusted it with TAPE. She tried to double charge me on the bustle when it had to be changed again. Finally she agreed not to but it was a struggle and very awkward. Bobbie only likes happy brides so if you are at all unhappy you better stay away from her! She doesn't want to help you if you actually need help, she just wants you to take pictures to put on her walls to show happy brides. I would go to another place.

I purchased my wedding gown from Bobbie's Bridal in October for my May wedding. The dress I liked was no longer being made so I bought the sample which was in great condition. Bobbie was very helpful and sweet throughout the entire process and my alterations were always ready on time and looked great.

I never felt pressured to buy anything else (veil, shoes, etc.) like some boutiques are notorious for. It was a very calm, non-stressful experience, which is what I was going for -- if you have visions of "Say Yes to the Dress" fanfare, you probably won't find what you're looking for here as far as a shopping experience goes. Bobbie takes the time to get to know her clients and always remembered me and my mom each time we returned for a fitting.

Since I was dieting in the months before our wedding like most brides, it made it difficult to make some of the calls with alterations but Bobbie provided great advice and it ended up fitting like a glove (not to say that her words of wisdom can replace whatever diet and exercise you've committed to, but she has seen enough dieting brides to made an educated guess when it comes to alterations).

I would definitely recommend Bobbie's Bridal!

I actually found my dress in New York but wanted to purchase it at a shop in Va to make it easier for fittings. Bobbie was able to order the dress I wanted. She was extremely helpful and attentive to my needs. Dorothy the seamstress did a great job on the alterations though they were a bit expensive. Bobbie was great at communicating status of my dress order through the process and very flexible with fittings.

I have mixed feelings about Bobbie’s. Initially, it was great. It was the first shop I went to with my mother. Bobbie’s had ample stock of plus sized dresses. The third dress I tried on was "the" one. Bobbie was great during this time.

In addition to my dress, we purchased 7 bridesmaid dresses, 2 junior bridesmaid dresses, and 1 mother-in-law dress. Two of my bridesmaids were going to be 8 months pregnant for the wedding. We were finalizing decisions on dresses in Nov. Bobbie worked with us on all of this. We received a 10% discount. She had a great selection and helped us find styles that worked.

Where things went south for me was during the last few weeks. Some of my bridesmaids felt that Bobbie's suggestions for sizes and additional length at time of purchase only led to the need for more alterations. Dorothy is a wonderful lady with a ton of patience and great skills. My feedback is more on the pricing.
Unfortunately, one of my bridesmaids lost her baby. We needed her dress altered a second time back to a smaller size. Bobbie was neither flexible nor understanding during this process. She charged us full price for the second alterations. Also, they mistakenly put cups in a bridesmaid dress that should have been put in a junior bridesmaid dress. I shipped the dresses to Boston before realizing the error. Bobbie offered to fix it. But, that would have left the alteration to two days before the wedding which I wasn't comfortable doing. So, we paid for the fix in Boston. When I asked Bobbie for the $30 back, she pushed back saying the charge was really for the cups not the alteration. Really? The same day I was buying even more (3 shrugs.) I was very disappointed. So, my suggestion is be prepared to negotiate and not be uncomfortable to push back on prices. And, if you do (which I didn’t) be prepared for her to not be flexible.

We honestly went on craigslist and found this vendor. My husband is strict catholic so we needed very conservative gowns and they seemed to fit the par. We out skirted from Barclay designs but they did all the fittings and alterations. I had no complaints, very time efficient and the gowns ended up looking conservative but great.
