I just bought my wedding dress today from this shop and can't rave enough! I had been to a couple other stores in Alexandria and the salespeople were either very pushy or not helpful at all. I only ended up at Occasions because they were the only shop in the area that had a specific dress in stock - I probably would have never ended up in Camp Springs, MD otherwise. I was honestly planning to try on the dress and then purchase it online, but by the time I left the store, I couldn't imagine not buying the dress from the awesome ladies at Occasions. They weren't pushy at all and they gave me as much space and time as I needed to make my decision. They also gave me a fabulous discount - I couldn't have found it online any cheaper! They also took lots of photos for me so I could send pictures to my mom and maid of honor - many shops outlaw taking any photos, so I was happy that this shop was so accommodating. They also worked with me on a payment plan, let ME decide what size to order (instead of pushing me to a bigger size so I'd need to pay for more alterations - which is a trick many bridal stores use nowadays, and even clipped a few fabric swatch samples for me to take on the way out when I found bridesmaids dresses in a color I liked. So helpful! I'd recommend this place to anyone.

First I went to the regular dress shops to try on dresses and they had all the same worn out styles that you see all the time. Then I went to Occasions House of Bridal, it was fantastic! They had a great selection of dresses and was a comfortable. I thought I knew what style I wanted but then she asked if I would try one on that she thought I'd like. I never would've thought I would like it, but it was the one :) I highly recommend Occasions House of Bridal for all of your formal wear needs!

I had the most amazing experience at Occasions House of Bridal. I sent my dress size and several dresses I wanted to try on in advance. When I arrived the dresses were ready for me to try on along with one that she chose for me. I tried on her pick first and immediately fell in love. She encouraged me to try on the other dresses I requested but non compared to the first dress. I was never pressured to purchase a dress outside of my budget, in fact, the dress that the owner chose was less expensive than any of the dresses I asked her to pull for me. She made me feel so at ease, as I was filled with anxiety about dress shopping. Once I placed on the veil there was no turning back!!! I highly recommend this bridal boutique, especially for plus size brides.

I really enjoyed working with Ms. Linda at Occasions House of Bridal. Appointment can be made online, which is something I really liked. Ms. Linda was responsive to my phone messages and e-mails. It is a small shop that is appointment only, so it's quiet and private, which I liked. There are a lot of bridal and bridesmaids dresses available to look at.

I went in to try on dresses for the first time here and honestly did not think I would find something that I liked at the first shop I visited. I didn't really have an idea of what I wanted in a dress, I just knew I wanted something that would flatter me. After asking about my ceremony venue and the type of wedding, I was planning to have, Ms. Linda pulled about six dresses for me to try on. They were all nice, but #3 was the winner. I was shocked and very happy to have found the gown I will get married in so easily. I was even more thrilled at the price! I had expected to pay a lot more, but was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Linda did not pressure me to buy anything that day. She encouraged me to go home and sleep on it, so there was no pressure.

I came back a couple of weeks later to try my dress on again and place the order. Ms. Linda kept me abreast of the status of my dress via e-mail letting me know when the order went through, when it was shipped, and when it was at her shop. I tried the dress on again a 3rd time when I went to pick it up. She wore gloves while she helped me into the dress to make sure she didn't get anything on it. She referred me to a seamstress and let me know I could call her anytime if I had a question.

Overall, Ms. Linda was very nice, caring and professional. She was very knowledgeable about the gowns and picked dresses that looked great on me. Her demeanor put me at ease and I'm very glad I got my gown from Occasions.

Tasha and Ms. Linda gave me and my bridal party A+ service. This mother/daughter team made me feel like part of the family. They were able to outfit me, the bridesmaid and groomsmen. Everything was very affordable. My dress was amazing and they are impeccable in measurements. I didn't feel overwhelmed and they didn't pressure into a dress. They really listened to me regarding budget, style and feel for my day. Great experience if you like a hands on intimate shop.

I called occasions after having a David's Bridal dress disaster! I made my appointment in mid February for my April wedding!! I tried on a few dresses and there was never any pressure to buy. I ordered my dress the same day, but before I ordered they called the Mori Lee warehouse to see if they had my size/color/length in stock to be shipped. My dress was delivered to the store in early April in perfect condition! I loved the fact that they sell plus size dresses and actually carry the samples in the store so you can try them on!

I actually found the dress I ended up buying at another boutique, but it was too far above my budget. Then I toyed with the idea of buying online, but was freaked out by the horror stories. Luckily, I decided to call around to various stores in my area that were authorized Casablanca vendors, and found Occasions! Even thought they didn't carry my dress in stock, they ordered it for me, and I ended up paying essentially what I would have paid online! They also measured me so well that it fit perfectly, and got Casablanca to make the changes I wanted so that they ended up looking perfect. Occasions also threw in things, like a rush order, for FREE. They're friendly, helpful, and definitely go above and beyond.

I bought my wedding dress from this store. I actually found the dress at another store while I was shopping out of town, but wanted to buy it locally and Occasions gave me a great deal. Tasha was very helpful in trying on dresses and advising me in making a decision. It's very personalized service and we basically had the store to ourselves. I live in Washington where many of the stores are very expensive. By going to a store outside of the city, I was able to save a lot of money. The down side was that since it's a smaller store, they weren't as helpful with accessorizing and helping me with jewelry and a veil, so I had to shop for that separately, but if you're OK doing that, it's a good option. Great service and great value.
