I loved my trip to Church Street Bridal! They had a wide variety of dresses with various styles. Since they're sample gowns that were donated from other (high-end) bridal shops, some of the dresses required some repairs, but when you're getting a 90% discount, the cost of repairs is pretty negligible (in my opinion). When I visited the shop, they asked what my budget was and they made sure to tell me that I should be looking at dresses that lower than my budget so that I didn't end up blowing my budget with alterations. (That was something that no other bridal shop mentioned!) They sort the dresses by size so it's fairly easy to find a dress that won't require a lot of alterations.

The women that work there were fabulous! Even though they were really busy on the Saturday that I visited, the woman that helped me continuously checked on me and made sure to answer any questions about any of the dresses. She had really genuine reactions to the dresses I tried on and she helped me understand what I could reasonably expect when it came to repairs and alterations.

I decided to purchase my dress from this shop! Not only is it a great dress for a great price, it's also for a super wonderful cause. You really can't go wrong visiting this shop!

Recommendation for other brides: I went to several other bridal shops before going to Church Street Bridal. I think this ended up being a good approach because I had a general idea of what I liked and what I could afford at non-discount bridal shops. I could also visualize the potential of each dress even though it may be dirty or torn in places. Had I gone to Church Street first, I probably would've overlooked some gorgeous dresses and/or fallen in love with a really expensive gown that I couldn't afford anywhere else (and that I couldn't commit to because I hadn't evaluated all my options). I imagine their dresses sell fast so if you find one you love, be prepared to purchase it within the 3-day hold period.

Everyone was very helpful. There were lots of dresses to look through. You can't beat the price and the money goes to a good cause.

I could never say enough good things about Church Street Bridal. The 3 kindest, most fun, honest, and relaxed women helped me and my mom as we spent a good two hours trying on dresses and then going back to look for more. They were sweet and never pressured me and were so excited for me when I found one I loved. It was a $5000 designer dress, brand new from Kleinfelds, and I got it for $450. And all of that money goes to support women's shelters. It was the best money I ever spent. I want to tell everyone about this place!

This by far the best deal ever for a designer wedding dress! They have wonderful connections with famous bridal stores like Kleinfelds NYC. My dress was originally thousands of dollars, but with their price, including getting it cleaned and altered I still only spent hundreds. It's such a great idea for a great cause!
Everyone was there was wonderful to work with. They were very helpful with trying on dresses, giving advice, and making suggestions. I watched their Facebook page, saw a dress I liked, went to try it on, they held it for a few days while I decided & then I bought it! I used my own local alterations place that was cheaper than the one they partner with, but it was still such a wonderful experience. It saved me so much money and I love my dress!

I purchased a gorgeous dress for much less than it was worth. And the money goes to a good organization.
I do wish they had warned me how hard it was to clean raw silk. There were a few smudges on the dress (as it was a sample) and they told me it was easy to clean. Not easy and not cheap. Luckily I found a fantastic seamstress who made the dress look perfect for a reasonable price.
I would still highly recommend them and am so glad I took the time to drive there from NOVA.

These lovely ladies were wonderful for an out-of-town bride! They were very knowledgeable about their stock, and super helpful while shopping. And boy, does it feel awesome to be part of such a great cause!

Most importantly though-- as a same-sex couple it was invaluable that the women were able to help my (now) wife and I on separate days so that we wouldn't see each other's dresses. Our dresses complimented each other perfectly, and we wouldn't have it any other way!
