CSB was the first place I tried on dresses. I heard about it during a wine tasting in Virginia near my home.

To be honest, I wasn't really looking forward to getting a dress. I had pretty high expectations of what I wanted, but I knew I did not have the money to get it. I went to CSB with an open mind, but understand that as a larger bride, there may not be a dress that would work for me.

Oh my gosh, it was a great experience. I went on a Saturday right when they opened. They have (I think I remember this correctly) two dressing rooms, and since we got there early, we didn't have to wait, etc. Get there early. I'd suggest if you're far away either getting a hotel in Lynchburg (it's a cute town) or stay in nearby Charlottesville, a larger city (home of the University of Virginia) and a really beautiful/fun town. I live in Charlottesville, so driving down early wasn't a big deal. I brought my sister and mom. My sister helped me try on the dresses. The staff and volunteers were so helpful in selecting dresses and making me feel at ease. They have a pretty good selection of styles and sizes. I did my homework beforehand and checked out their Facebook pages and pictures. I ended up finding the perfect dress (I feel beautiful and like a princess--perfect!) for $400 when it was priced at well over $3000. I also tried on and purchased a veil. So.happy. It's worth the drive if you live far away, and it feels good to know that my money is going to a great cause!

Church Street Bridal was one of the highlights of my wedding planning! Prior to stopping here, i visited several local "bridal" stores in Raleigh, NC. The lower-end stores had some dresses i thought were OK, but nothing that WOWd. The higher-end stores seemed too overpriced for what was offered, but also did not have that WOW. We hit the jackpot at CSB in November 2012. Apparently the bridal seasons change around this time so CSB was getting in more dresses than they could hang on the rack. I found piles of lovely gowns to try on (you can tell the difference in fabric quality with a nice dress immediately!). When i put on my dress i knew it was "the one" - prior to stopping by CSB i thought that feeling was not in the cards. I ended up with a designer dress about 93% off retail. It had a minor snag in one of the organza folds, but otherwise it was beautiful.

If you're thinking about driving out to CSB, just do it! If you find a dress, not only will it be a WOW but the (little) money you do spend will go to a great cause.

Absolutely LOVE this shop! I have made it my personal mission to tell everyone I know about it. I heard about Church St. from one of my bridesmaid's who went to college at Liberty. No appointment needed and personalized service. Not commercialized at all like the rest of the bridal industry. Had a lovely experience here finding my beautiful gown with my Mother who also found her MOB dress there as well. Well worth the drive from Winchester. My gown was only $400 and had an entirely beaded bodice and semi cathedral length train. Other gowns I tried on had an original price tag of $5000 from Kleinfelds! Working with Church St. and The Guilded Thimble was a wonderful experience!

Best place to find a wedding dress!!!!! Great deal, you buy off the rack, and it goes to a good cause. I live in DC, but I tell ALL of my friends to make the trip down to Lynchburg to find a dress! We also found two of my bridesmaid's dresses there, and my sister bought her wedding dress there 2 years ago. Love this place!!!

Everyone should know about the best kept secret in Virginia!! Gorgeous dresses at incredible prices for a very worthy cause! My dress retailed at Kleinfeld's for $6,000... but I paid $600! In addition to amazing deals, this store is nice because it allows you to shop at your own pace. I perused the dresses and picked out a few to try on, just like I would on a normal shopping excursion. This took a lot of the pressure off. I was able to see all the options on the floor and pick out ones that interested me, then try them on at my own pace. This ultimately led to the purchase of my wedding dress! Be sure to check out the downstairs portion of the store- my mom found her mother-of-the-bride dress there on the same day.

I bought my dress here for a steal from a very nice line of dresses from California. It was satin and probably something that I would not be able to afford full price. You can tell a big difference in quality versus a David's Bridal dress. Many of my guests on my wedding day commented on how beautiful I looked and commented on how beautiful my dress looked.

After looking in Richmond and thinking I had found my dress, a friend told us about Church Street. We went today and found a Reem Acra gown for $550, the Klienfields tag was $5300! Don't miss this opportunity! I found a dress I couldn't have dreamed of! Also
staff was awesome, and all proceeds go to victims of domestic violence. GO THERE!

I found my dream gown at Church Street Bridal. I heard about this shop from a friend and decided to check it out. A friend and I made a "girl's day" out of it and traveled 2-3 hours to get to the shop. The shop is a little tricky to find so keep your eyes out for the sign. I had a $1200 budget for my gown initially and found an amazing gown for $250! Be advised that all the gowns are new but most are floor models from other big-name gown shops (they get gowns from stores featured on Say Yes to the Dress). Some gowns may have minor flaws but they all can be fixed for a small cost. My dress had a few beads that needed replaced. My mother-in-law took the dress and re-beaded the entire gown in Swarovski AB crystals. My $250 gown looked like I spent $3000! I couldn't be happier with the shop. I felt great in my gown and also felt amazing about supporting their cause!

The YWCA's Church Street Bridal Shop is really a gem for Lynchburg. For anyone who might not know, they have new, designer gowns (Pnina, Alita Graham, Kleinfeld, etc.) donated to them from all across the country, which they in turn sell at a greatly reduced price. All the money they make off of the dresses goes directly to the domestic violence prevention program. I found my dream dress there...a brand new (tags still on) $4,500 Alita Graham dress from Kleinfeld, for only $450! I never in my dreams could have imagined being able to afford, much less owning , a dress from Kleinfeld! Sheila and all the ladies who work there are so sweet and helpful. They have all kinds of different styles in a variety of sizes. I will highly recommend them to anyone!

Absolute wonderful bridal shop!! The proceeds from the dresses they sell go to help abused and homeless women getting a fresh start. The staff was so helpful, I can not say enough about the experience. Its not a fancy place but you will get a fabulous deal on a dress...I got 90% off the original price for mine!!

You need to go in knowing what style you are looking for because they sell the sample dress from major designers. So try on the dress no matter what the size because different designers vary in sizes, especially for wedding dresses!!

CSB is not your typical bridal shop - they get samples from bridal salons and sell them at a huge markdown as a fundraiser for the Lynchburg YWCA. The experience is also totally different - you go in, browse dresses off the rack, and try on the dress that you may or may not decide to take home that day. I went with fairly low expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised by the facility, the super-friendly staff, and the quality of the merchandise. On top of that, I got a beautiful dress for 70% off the original price, and my $300 goes to support a great organization rather than the bridal industry. Win!

I took a road trip with a friend to look at wedding dresses (I already had mine) and ended up buying a beautiful designer dress for my reception and she purchased her wedding dress. My second dress matched so well with my ceremony dress and everyone thought I bought the two together. Everyone at the store was helpful, though I would say to try an go during the week if you want more personal service. It wasn't super busy when we were there, but if there were anymore people we would have had to wait to get a fitting room and with help trying on our dresses.

This place is amazing. Everything is drastically reduced but in good condition. I actually got my dress on their sale rack so it was even more reduced. My Maggie Sottero gown only cost $108! It needed some alterations, but for that price, who cares?? It's not your typical bridal boutique, so don't expect to be waited on hand on foot, but everyone who works there is very friendly and helpful. The selection isn't huge either, but the deals are amazing and they get new shipments constantly, so it's definitely worth a look or two. I recommend following them on Facebook because they always announce when they've gotten new shipments. The best part about this place is you have the added bonus of all the proceeds going to the programs at the YWCA. Finding your perfect dress feels even better when you know that it helped to support a good cause. I really can't say enough good things about this place. Thank you Church Street Bridal!

I didn't have much luck at the main Church St. Bridal shop (no available dressing rooms, poor service, overly crowded, etc), but had a great experience at their other shop, the newer "Church Street Couture"- in the Galleria off of Main St. There are fewer dresses, but they are all directly from Kleinfeld and it is a way less stressful experience. Also, really good and personal customer service. I thought I would have an extremely hard time finding the right thing, since I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted...but I fell in love with one of the first dresses there that I tried on. Best part? It still had the $2800 price tag on it, but only cost me $350!! I LOVE that all of the dresses are donated and all of your money spent goes to support the YWCA and the abuse shelter. It made me feel really good about my purchase. I even received a very sweet, hand-written card from them a few days later congratulating me on finding my dress and thanking me for contributing. It was a win-win :) If you are even remotely in the area, go check it out!

I love this shop!! I recommend it to anyone in central VA, especially if they're trying to plan on a budget. I bought my dress (which I was lucky enough to have fit off the rack) for $300. Bring a friend with strong arms, b/c if the staff is busy you have to pick out and carry all the dresses yourself. Their hours were also a little tough to work with if you're not in Lynchburg, but I was able to get down there on a Saturday. All their dresses are new, and they may be last season's or something, but I certainly can't tell the difference and most other people probably can't either. Keep in mind that alterations are totally up to you too, but most of their dresses are so cheap that even with alterations you'll beat the price for the same dress at a fancier store. On top of the sweet deal for yourself, the proceeds from the shop go to the YWCA so you're helping other women in need. Win-win, I think.

This place is hands down the best value in Virginia, and I would not go anywhere else to get a wedding gown. All dresses are $300 or less, and all are brand new! The dresses are donated from shops aroud the state, and all proceeds benefit the YMCA and Women's Shelter that are housed in the same building. Staff were helpful but in no way pushy. You take your actual dress with you when you leave - no ordering or waiting for delivery. There is a large selection of beautiful dresses. At those prices, even if you find one a size or two too big or small, you can get it altered and still pay less than you would anywhere else. Check it out!

Church Street Bridal was such a blessing! With only $6000 for the entire wedding, finding a great dress seemed like a daunting task. From the looks of it, all of their dresses there were $350 or less, and they had top of the line designer dresses! I bought a beautiful Amy Michaelson $5000 designer dress from NY (called grace if you look it up on her website) for $330. Where else can you find high fashion, designer wedding dresses in Lynchburg, VA?! Beautiful dresses and at prices that are too good to be true. It did require some alterations (it must have been a display dress before ending up at church street bridal, because it did have several small tears in the fabric, but they were easily fixed), but even with the alterations cost, it still came out to less then $600. With so many different styles to choose from (and unbeatable value), I highly recommend Church Street Bridal.

Church Street Bridal was such a blessing! With only $6000 for the entire wedding, finding a great dress seemed like a daunting task. From the looks of it, all of their dresses there were $350 or less, and they had top of the line designer dresses!

Who would have thought you could get this kind of service at a discount shop?? The women who work there are as knowledgable and helpful as any high-end shop. They recommended a dress that looked great on me (that I never would have found on my own) and I paid next to nothing for it. All dresses are brand new, not used.
