My experience at Church Street Bridal was really one of a kind! While planning my October 2017 wedding, I did a ton of research for bridal salons to find my perfect gown. Some where along the way I read about CSB. When I told my mom about CSB she was so excited, so 3 months in advanced we made plans to do a girls weekend (we live in DC and needed to get a hotel for the night). We woke up early to get to CSB right when they opened. We were given a private dressing room and paired with Nicole, who was so incredibly patient and helpful. I must have tried on about 20-30 dresses. I'm not kidding. Nicole provided me with clips and helped answer any questions I had about the fit of the gowns. After narrowing my choices down to 3 gowns, leaving for a quick bite to eat, coming back and trying the 3 gowns on and saying "Yes, to the Dress!" ... we finally left with THE dress a beautiful Pronovias Atelier, originally $7,000 we paid $315. And all for an amazing cause! Every cent goes back to women and children that have been victims of domestic abuse. Everyone here was SO lovely! They made you feel just as beautiful and fabulous as they did as the prestigious salons in DC, and I would know because I went to those salons as well. I would absolutely recommend CSB to other brides, and I already have multiple times!

I cannot say enough good things about CSB. I bought a $3400 Cocoe Voci dress for $260 and that was including sales tax! It was totally under my budget and I had more than enough money leftover for accessories and alterations. It was the only bridal shop I went to and you don't need an appointment!!! I made the trek from the DC area with my MOH and another gal pal and I tried on a total of 15 dresses before I made my decision. I felt like a princess on my wedding day and got SO many compliments. The ladies that work there are super helpful and accommodating, as well as knowledgeable. The dresses come from high end bridal shops, like Kleinfeld's in NYC, and are usually about 90% off, since they are sample gowns. The majority of the dresses come in sample sizes, so if you're teeny tiny or on the bigger side, you may not find as many options. I typically wear about a 6/8, which is a 10/12 in bridal sizing, and the dress I purchased was a 10. The dresses are organized by size and they get new inventory in all the time. They also have a great selection of bridal accessories, like jewelry and veils. I would definitely say this place is worth the trek and I would recommend it to anyone. Another huge reason I recommend this place is that it is run through the Central Virginia YWCA and the proceeds go to domestic violence victims. Great price and a fantastic cause? Sign me up!

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.

I bought my dress from Church Street Bridal back in June of 2015. My wedding isn't until May of this year, however, I am still in awe over my dress. I lucked up and found a Pnina Tornai, yes a Pnina, and at an amazing price too!!! An unbelievable price. The staff was very friendly and did their absolute best to accommodate me, which I appreciated. I really felt like they wanted to help me find my perfect dress. Not to mention they are doing it for a great cause. It felt great knowing that purchasing a dress from there meant I am also helping someone in need. I am going to be a ball gown bride in beautiful designer gown and I absolutely cannot wait. Thank you Church Street Bridal for making my dreams come true!

AWESOME company. Not only are the dresses gorgeous at a tiny price, everyone was SO nice and the proceeds go to charity. What more could you ask for?

My sister bought her wedding dress from here a few years age, and this year I bought mine!
I love the ladies at Church Street Bridal, when I went over 75% of their dresses were from Klienfeld (Say Yes to the Dress show)
My dress was originally $1300 and we got it for $275, my Pnina hair piece was originally $799 and we paid $70
All the money from their sales goes into the YWCA for women and children

I heard about Church Street Bridal when I lived in Virginia. So, when it came time for my wedding, I knew that I wanted to check it out. My mom came up from Florida, and then we drove from North Carolina to Lynchburg to go to this shop, and we were not disappointed. The staff is so friendly and offers helpful suggestions (e.g., what size to go up to, how a given dress would need to be altered, honest opinions). Also, they let my mom come in the room with me and help me get in and out of the dresses. While some people might prefer more individualized service, I liked being in the dressing room with my mom and not some stranger. They let me try on my favorite dresses multiple times to help me make a final decision, and they even held my two favorites overnight so I could sleep on it. Even after cleaning costs and alterations, I still paid less than I would have for an "off the rack" dress at most bridal shops before alterations (and that's for the low end of dresses!)! Plus, the fact that the money goes to such a wonderful cause helped me feel like I had done something good for others in my wedding planning!
