I heard of Maria's shop a while ago and when I got engaged I decided that I wanted to get my dress from her shop. She was so helpful and all her staff. I am so happy with everything I truly recommend Maria she is so talented and she know what she is doing. I am very thankful to Maria and I wish her success.

I have been engaged for 2 years and have been looking for my gown for just as long. After trying on at least 75 dresses, I loved something about all of them, but was unable to find one that "WOWED" me. I was referred to Maria's by a friend and scheduled an appointment. I met with the Manager, April, who immediately assessed my predicament. Maria makes custom gowns and we decided that may be the best route to go. For the next two hours we went through photos and designs of gowns as well as looked at numerous swatches of fabric and beading. I still tried on many gowns, but still no "wow" dress. Maria worked with us throughout the process and then drew the exact design I was looking for!! It was budget-conscientious and not nearly expensive as I thought a custom gown would be! A few months later my dress is ready and the most beautiful gown I ever could have imagined! I can NOT WAIT for my wedding day! Thank you, Maria!

I had a wonderful experience with Maria's Bridal Designs. Maria knew exactly what dress would be perfect for me. Thanks to her and her wonderful staff member, Erica, I found the perfect dress after a long and unsuccessful journey of searching for THE one. They were professional, kind and attentive throughout the entire process. Maria was completely honest about what looked good on me and what did not. She even helped pick the perfect veil to go along with the dress. I am glad I trusted Maria b/c not only did I love the dress, but my husband and everyone at the wedding LOVED it too. I highly recommend Maria's Bridal Designs.

I love my dress. My husband and everyone at my wedding loved my dress. I however did not love my vendor. Maria seems to hire young people who can't get ordering a simple dress correct. When they call you they are super unprofessional. My dress arrived 6 weeks after it was supposed to, good thing I ordered it well in advance. Also when I went to pick it up the girl wouldn't let me try it on because she had just pressed it. Seriously? Now I understand why people go with more expensive store, you are treated better. The store is really dirty and the dressing rooms leave something to be desired. There is NO seating for your guests. If you have more than one bride there at a time you are screwed. Also Maria goes back to her country several times a year, bc she has another store there, so getting a hold of her certain months is impossible and when that is the month that your dress is supposed to arrive it's super ANNOYING.

Maria made my bridal dress by hand- a true haute-couture gown with the best materials and incredible attention to detail. I brought her 3 different Elie Saab designs I wanted represented in my wedding dress.... and she actually made a vision...a hybrid dress that is simply stunning for a fraction of the price! I cannot fathom why anyone would go buy an off the rack dress when Maria is an option...to have your own gown that is a one of a kind creation, created by the bride.. is unreal- esp in overpriced DC....her creation is easily the most amazing detail of the wedding.

Maria’s Bridal had exactly what I was looking for when I didn’t even know what that was to begin with. On my initial visit the sales women were so helpful and sincerely complementary I felt completely at ease. There were many options that all look great as the selection had a great range to narrow down the type of look I wanted to achieve. Before walking out that day I was handed a card with a great price. I kept that in my wallet while continuing my search and kept finding myself comparing all other dresses to the one I found at Maria’s. Eventually I knew it was time to go back as I now knew the dress I had tried on was the ONE. Sure enough, this was it and I knew it! I recently went for my first fitting and could not be any happier. With custom measurements taken, the dress arrived and fit like a glove. With Maria’s keen eye, she evaluated the dress during the fitting and made notes for minor adjustments to really achieve perfection. With Maria having the ability to make spot on modifications this was an added plus knowing she could do whatever was needed in a pinch. The dresses are all on mannequins so there is no need to flip through bags and imagine what it would look like. Customer service is great as the group works together and really makes you feel special as full attention is given to you. The experience was great and I would 100% recommend Maria’s Bridal. As I am 6 weeks away from my wedding I am super excited to be wearing my dress selected from Maria’s.

I found out about this place from google maps. they had great reviews and I didn't want to waste time. they were the only store I visited and I am very happy I visited them first. They are very professional at what they do and they have excellent customer service. My dress required several alterations that they did gladly and perfectly. I would highly recommend them for any one.

Maria's carried a designer I liked for bridesmaids and I initially went looking for their gowns. I went on a Saturday and even though they were busy, they allowed me to try on some gowns also when I saw some i liked on their display mannequins. I ended up finding my gown purely by accident! They gave me a great price on my gown and my bridemaids gowns and were friendly through the entire appointment unlike some snooty shops I have been in before. Definitely recommend.

Maria or manager is named April, they are a referral service, very nice to help find everything. They were really attentive to my high demandslol. And they called me 3 times to remind me to bring in my cake topper. They set both cakes up on time and from what I heard it was delicious. I honestly do not like cake but I heard it was very moist.

I am extremely disappointed with the work that was done on my wedding dress. I had not tried it on since my final fitting until a few weeks ago when my mother and I discovered a huge error that was made. When two of the bustle ribbons were sewn into the bottom layers of the dress, the top layer was caught as well, with 2-3 stitches in it in two different spots, causing the dress to have big puckers on the back of the skirt. I am very upset and appalled that they would let a dress out of the store with a huge error like this. This is the most important dress I will ever wear and I put my complete trust in Maria's to make it perfect.

I would not recommend them to any bride. It was heartbreaking to discover this huge mess-up on my dress a month before my wedding. They need to get their act together if they plan on staying around. When I sent them a letter stating my disappointment, I received no response.
