I had my doubts about Rosalin's from its meager website and very modest exterior, but the staff there know what they are doing!
After trying on only about 4 dresses, the woman I was working with found exactly the dress I wanted. She had a great ear for my commentary on other dresses, and even suggested swapping out the dress's sash, which was a perfect idea.
The shop also suggested ordering me a petite size, which I really appreciated. They could have gotten more money from me if they had suggested getting regular sizes, and tailoring it down, but I felt like it was honest of them to recommend the more cost-effective option-- I actually didn't need to make any alterations to the fit because of ordering the petite.
I also had my dress pressed by them, and it was on-time and looked fabulous!

I bought my dress here but did not do my alterations through Rosalin's (the quote for the alterations was very high). This is not a fancy, champagne-serving, bridal store--we found our own dresses to try on, brought them into the fitting room ourselves, etc. The owner pretty much stayed out of our way...which annoyed me at first, but actually ended up being great. I had felt so much pressure at other bridal stores with the salespeople constantly fussing about everything that I didn't feel like I could actually make my own decision! So, although this is kind of a hole in the wall place, it ended up being perfect for me. They have a nice selection and I was able to buy a sample dress at a discount, even though it wasn't technically a sample sale. Definitely worth checking out!

I cannot say enough good things about my wedding dress experience at Rosalin's! At my first appointment, I was impressed with how large the fitting room was, how well Rosalin knew her selection to bring me different dresses to try on, and how kind she was as I was trying on dresses - there was no pressure to buy that day and we ended up leaving with three dresses I liked but went to look elsewhere. I returned the next day to purchase my dress and was so happy with it - I felt it was very reasonably priced!! All my alterations were done at Rosalin's and although they were expensive, the dress fit like a glove and the quality of the alterations made it completely worth the money. I should also say that Rosalin and her sister were incredibly kind throughout the entire process with hugs every time I came in, prompt service, and great quality products. They were also very flexible and accommodating to my schedule since I lived 10 hours away. My bridesmaids all ordered their dresses from Rosalin's and they were $75 cheaper than the exact same Bill Levkoff dress at Macy's. All 8 bridesmaids dresses arrived on time, in great quality and were the correct size. I love Rosalin's!!

Rosalin's had a great selection of dresses at prices within my budget, and Rosalin was incredibly nice and helpful in picking out dresses after I gave her a general idea of what I was looking for. She let me browse independently, but she also made some great recommendations - in fact, she suggested a dress that I would have never picked out on my own, but it was the dress that I ultimately ended up getting! Rosalin was also very helpful in the fitting room, clipping me up in the back and bringing different accessories/veils to try on with the dresses. I never once felt pressured, and it was overall a fantastic experience!

They were truly a life saver when my dress came in later than expected from PA. They were able to alter my dress in a week so I was able to have it for my bridal pictures. And after my pictures I had to take it back for some buttons falling off and they were more than accommodating. They were very nice people and do amazing work so you look your best!

Rosalin's is truly a hidden gem. This is not a "say yes to the dress" type place, and when money matters, that's not really what you want. At Rosalin's, everything they save in overhead they pass on to you. I found my Allure dress here for hundreds less than quoted at some of the "bigger" stores in DC. The staff at Rosalin's was great: they helped me find the exact look I was going for, ordered the correct size, did the appropriate alterations, and held on to the dress until the big day. The alterations weren't cheap, but they were worth it. The dress ended up looking amazing, and working with them was totally stress-free!

I love Rosalin! She is amazing. Rosalin's Bridal Boutique is a small shop in Falls Church. Don't let the small sign or parking lot deter you from entering - the shop has a great selection at affordable prices. Rosalin's was only the second shop I had visited and I was immediately won over by Rosalin and the Bridal Boutique employees. I wanted a dress that had short sleeves and was adamant about not wearing a sleeveless dress, although this style was very popular. My initial visit was on a Saturday (which is busy - make sure you make an appointment!) and I described what I like. Rosalin herself was in the shop and assisting. After pulling a few gowns and trying them on I knew I had found the *one* - all in about an hour. I have highly sensitive skin and was concerned about the lace bothering my skin. Rosalin worked with me to reline the entire upper portion of the dress in a sheer, soft material to make sure I did not have any skin reactions. Rosalin's did all the alterations, which were pricey (but I did have to have the dress re-lined) but reasonable for the number of things done to make my dress fit perfectly just for me! Each fitting was great fun - and Rosalin was there working with me the entire time (my fittings I did on weekdays which was much less crowded). I also purchased accessories, including my veil with a matching edge to my gown, at Rosalin's. My bridesmaid dresses were also ordered through Rosalin's and arrived on time. My bridesmaids that were not local, I was able to ship the dress to without any issues. I cannot say enough good things about Rosalin's Bridal Boutique. I adore Rosalin and will certainly be coming again with sisters and friends in the future!

I purchased my dress and three bridesmaid dresses from Rosalin's. Both my dress (Allure Bridals) and my bridesmaid dresses (Watters & Watters) cost significantly less when compared to other salons I had visited in the DC area.

The salon is a bit of a hole in the wall, but don't let that fool you. They have tons of variety in their dresses, and it was nice to be able to look through the dresses myself, rather than relying on a consultant to do it for you. I found the consultants to be helpful in carrying the dresses back to the changing room and helping me clip up the dress--- but then they gave me, my mom and my sister plenty of time and space to critique the dress. They didn't rush us, and there was absolutely no sales pressure, which was a nice relief compared to my shopping experience elsewhere.

Ultimately, everything I ordered came in timely, and the alterations they made to my dress made it fit like a glove on my wedding day. Rosalin's allowed me to try my dress back on whenever I stopped in, whether it was to show my in-laws when they came into town, to try my dress on with my shoes, to decide on a veil, or just because I wanted to! Because I live only a couple of miles away from the salon, I stopped in to see/try on my dress way too often, and the service they provided went above and beyond. I genuinely believe that no other salon would have accommodated me as much as they did, and I am very thankful.

We were very pleased with Rosalin's and would recommend it to other brides who are looking for a no-fuss, laid back dress shopping experience.

LOVE HER! I found my dress at Rosalin's on our first visit. I had some ideas about what I wanted but was open to suggestions and I'm glad I was because Rosalin knows her inventory. She had great options which brought the entire look together. She even made a custom sash because the one I liked didn't come in black. She is super friendly and made the experience stress free. Rosalin's also did all of my alterations which were perfect.

I got my bridesmaids' dresses from Rosalin. The process was quick and easy. The prices were the best in the area that I found and they came in a little earlier than the expected delivery date (which was a plus). The shop is small and the selection isn't huge but the shop owner/employees were friendly and accommodated us with what we needed. I would definitely recommend!

My friend bought her dress from here prior to me and always raved about the service she received throughout the entire process. I can do the same. This is a quaint local bridal boutique which provided amazing service, never rushing us no matter how many appointments we had back with them. They give you all the time you need to try on dresses which they allow you to be alone with your party and have them help you try on dresses. (of course should you need professional help they were never far away) They let me enjoy this experience on a personal level with my friends. The alterations were amazing as I needed a lot of length taken off, even the dress itself taken in. They never said no, always willing to keep adjusting the dress on multiple appointment fittings till it was just right. They also held my dress up until the wedding date which is convenient.

Very Professional and Pleasant to Work With

I came to Rosalin's Bridal at the end of my long 4.5 month search for a wedding dress. I had a very specific criteria for my dress: there had to be a lot of beading and sparkle at the bust, the dress had to be satin or duchess satin, the dress had to have Swarovski jewels in the embellishments, it had to be a corset dress and no other style, etc. When I arrived there, I described all these things to Rosalin and she immediately knew what brand to put me in and suggested I look at a specific section of dresses that matched the style I was looking for. After putting on a Maggie Sottero Adeline Marie, I immediately knew it was the one, and I bought the dress the next day. Working with Rosalin's Bridal was such a pleasure. They were always courteous and friendly. They were flexible when I had to change times for the 3 fittings I had. They made helpful suggestions on accompanying hair jewellery and veil. They also gave thorough instructions on how I should travel with the dress since I was flying to my wedding. They genuinely cared, and that made a big difference since I was shopping for my dress by myself.

After going to many bridal boutiques and trying on my dress several times at different stores to make sure it really was “the dress”, I purchased at Rosalin’s since they had the best price and the staff was friendly. Rosalin’s is a no-frills shop and is a cramped, old, and ugly store.

I had no issues with the ordering process, but my mistake was when I decided to alter my dress at Rosalin’s. I went in for my first fitting about 2 months before my wedding. My dress was marked to be taken in, shortened, cups sewn in, and bustled. We paid for the alterations in full at that time (about $350), and I was told to bring my bridesmaids to my next fitting so they could learn how to bustle the dress.

A couple of my bridesmaids and my mom rearranged their schedules to be at my next fitting, but when we arrived the bustle was not complete and the top had only been taken in on the sides which caused it to gap in the front. In order to get the front of dress fixed the store charged us another $150 making alterations absolutely outrageous, but we couldn’t do anything since I needed that alteration to keep my dress up. The store also told my bridesmaids to come back to the next fitting and they would have the bustle done, but my bridesmaids couldn’t come back since they had already rearranged their schedules once for this and would be out of town for the next fitting.

For my third fitting, everything was taken in and the bustle was done, but a few other changes we had discussed at previous fittings still hadn’t been done.

Everything seemed fine when I pick up my dress. However, when I got my dress home and was looking at it the night before my wedding I noticed a black dot moving around inside the sheer ruching on the back of the bodice. IT WAS A BUG! ROSALIN’S HAD SEWN A BUG INTO MY DRESS. It’s absolutely unacceptable that their store is dirty enough that a bug crawled into my dress during alterations. On my wedding day my bustle also kept falling out.

Rosalin's Bridal Boutique is a hidden gem! Rosalin has a variety of gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and MOB/MOG dresses. She listened to what I was looking for and helped me find the perfect gown! She is very personable, easy to work with, and dedicated to her bride. Her and her alterations team helped to create the perfect gown at a reasonable price! Not only did I get my gown from Rosalin's but I also ordered my bridesmaids gowns from her boutique as well. The dresses came in in a timely manner and were gorgeous!

I also purchased my veil as well. I highly recommend checking them out especially if you are a Maggie Sottero fan!

Pricing, availability to the Maggie Sottero line, an excellent seamstress, and awesome customer service were all selling points for me in choosing Rosalin's. I first visited Rosalin's Bridal Boutique in March 2012 with my best friend and matron of honor, who traveled from Indiana (my home state) to help me begin my wedding dress shopping experience. It was busy when we were there, but the ladies did a great job of helping when we wanted and letting us do our own thing at other moments - not overbearing like some other boutiques. I left with a good feeling and a vision of what I wanted. When I returned with my mom, dad, and sister in April 2012, Rosalin's was the third shop we visited and was by far my family's favorite as well. We made an appointment during the day on a Thursday and received one-on-one attention and honest explanations of alterations that could be made to dresses I liked but weren't exactly my "dream dress."

They were honest about saving me some money by purchasing the "petite length" dress since I am only 5'4" - and thank goodness I trusted their expertise. It was suppose to take a little longer to receive and was estimated to arrive in October. The dress came in much earlier than I expected, which was a huge relief! My first fitting was in August and I was able to take my perfectly steamed dress and veil back to Indianapolis (where our wedding was held) in October, a full month before our wedding date. This was so wonderful! I can't thank them enough for this!

The seamstress was incredible. She attached a beaded (pearls, rhinestone, etc) belt I had picked out separately to my Maggie Sottero Kristin dress and it genuinely looked like it was made as part of the dress. They didn't need to do any hemming thanks to the petite length and I still wore almost 4in heels. The bustle was done very nicely and she adjusted it after the first fitting to make it even more secure. My bridesmaids were able to follow the bustle diagram she made pretty well!

Rosalin's Bridal Boutique is a small family-owned shop located in a nondescript brick building in Falls Church, VA. I stopped by on the recommendation of my hairdresser and found my dress in under 45 minutes. Rosalin pulled some dresses and it was the 3rd of the four dresses which I tried on which became MY dress. Rosalin did an excellent job on alterations (which were admittedly a bit pricey but complicated) and created a 7-point bustle. I would highly recommend that brides in the area, especially if you are interested in Maggie Sottero dresses, visit Rosalin's Bridal Boutique in Falls Church, VA. Now I just need to call Rosalin and make arrangements to have my dress cleaned and preserved.

Rosalin's Bridal Salon is a small shop with great people. We found my dress and the bridesmaids dresses in one 90 minute appointment! I had an idea of what I wanted for the wedding day and Rosalin made it happen. In the appointment, Rosalin brought in a dress that was a total opposite of what I was going for in order to make sure I was on the right track and I really appreciate her doing that! The dress needed some alterations, and the staff at the salon did a great job.

I would highly recommend making an appointment with this Bridal Salon!

Didn’t buy my dress here (got directly from the manufacturer), but I tried on dresses many times and got my bridesmaids dresses here. If you want fancy, this place is not for you. Most of the wedding dresses are in bags. You’re on your own to browse the racks, but they help you get in the dresses (Rosalin insists you clip the dresses – let her, it makes a huge difference!). But they have a great selection, particularly Maggie Sottero. Other salons let you try 5-7 dresses, but I tried at least 10 each time I came here. Rosalin gave honest opinions when asked and brought in some dresses I never would have picked but looked great. I was set on a dress for a while, so I brought several people to see it. She always let me squeeze in without an appointment. When I brought my fiancé to see it and we came out with a different dress, Rosalin didn’t bat an eye and was happy for me that I finally found one I was excited about. Rosalin’s has the best prices in town. The original dress I wanted was the MS Kendra, which I was quoted at $1100-$1400 at other area stores. Rosalin’s was $900. My actual dress (Abilene) was a new design at the time and listed at $1600. Rosalin’s quoted me at $1300. I hear their alterations are pricier to make up for the great prices, but who knows. You can take your dress somewhere else (I did). They have a large selection of bridesmaid dresses, but I picked a WTOO dress (953) from the website that no one carried in DC. Rosalin helped me visualize what it would look like with the top from one dress and the bottom of another. List price was $180, but we got them for $150, which I thought was great for a cute, quality dress, not one from David’s. Beware: store swatches are small, so I was grateful that I ordered a swatch from Weddington Way for $5 or I would have accidentally had brown bridesmaid dresses. Order a swatch. A few girls had their dresses altered here and said it was pricey but good, and everyone looked great at the wedding.

Rosalin's bridal was a great selection for my bridesmaids and myself. Rosalin was so easy to work with, organized, and was always prompt with information. The only trouble we ran into, is the cost for alterations. Many of my bridesmaids had to pay multiple fees for alterations, especially when the alterations were not done to meet the bridesmaid's expectations. This I had a hard time dealing with, since the cost of alterations was sometimes more than half of what the dress cost. I would recommend going elsewhere for alterations.

Rosalin's was the perfect place for me. I went to one of those "say yes to the dress" type places, but I was really turned off by the whole experience. At the other store, the saleswoman didn't understand my style, she kept hedging the question of how much alterations were going to cost, and after a couple of hours I was left confused and annoyed.

I saw Rosalin's on here and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did. It's true, the value is much better here than at other bridal stores. It's also true (I think) that this is because with the other more flashy stores, you're paying for their overhead with higher gown prices. So, Rosalin's doesn't have the frills that the other stores have, but if you're like me, that's not as important as finding the right dress at the best price.

Rosalin actually was the one helping me, and she completely understood what I wanted. I tried on several dresses (more than at the first place), and found my dress after an hour or so. The only drawback was that the alterations cost more than I would have liked (I think that might just be the nature of the beast). The alternations themselves were perfect, though.

Rosalin's is great! It's a small, but well-stocked shop. After trying on 20+ dresses between Macy's and Rosalin's, I was getting frustrated. I described to Rosalin what I thought was missing from all the other dresses I tried on, and in she came with one I never would have considered. I tried it on, and tears streamed down my face. I said yes to her dress! I had such a great experience with her for my wedding gown, I decided to go there for the bridesmaid dresses, too. She offered me a discount on five or more (which was greatly appreciated), and called whenever any came in. I love Rosalin's and am so glad I went there for all my wedding dress needs.

I had a great experience at Rosalin's bridal. The dress came out perfect, and they were very helpful in ordering the right size (I didnt even need the length done bc we ordered the right size). The bustle was absolutely beautiful. The only reason it's not a perfect 5/5 is because I felt that the alteration prices were a little high and I had to pay alterations twice for the same area (it wasnt quite right the first time so they had to continue to work on it... and I paid both times, not just once). They were nice, friendly, efficient, and professional - I'd definitely recommend :)

I decided to go to Rosalin's Bridal Boutique because they had the Allure dress that I wanted to try on that I found in a wedding magazine. This was my first and final wedding dress shop that I went to. First of all, the owner, Rosalin, is so sweet and easy to work with. The dress I tried on had lace straps and I decided I wanted to make the dress strapless. They created the most beautiful dress that I could have imagined. I was beyond pleased with the final product. Rosalin and the other employees were so accomodating. For example, I called on a busy Saturday to see if I could have my fitting a few days early because I had some family with me that I wanted to see the dress on me... with no hesitation they fit me in. The boutique is small and Rosalin always gave each of us a hug as we left and she really made you feel comfortable. I highly recommend this bridal shop to anyone who wants great service and products, amazing in house alterations, and an at home feeling everytime you come in. Thank you so much to Rosalin for creating my dream dress for me!

I bought my dress from Rosalin's Bridal Boutique. I had decided a couple weeks from the wedding that I was not happy with my initial dress (bought from a different place), since we ordered the bridesmaids dresses from Rosalin's I went back to see if it was possible to find a wedding gown in the timeframe that i was in.

Luckily, with the help of the staff from Rosalin's I was able to find a dress. The dress is GORGEOUS!!!

The staff was very helpful and flexible with appointments to do alterations.

We also ordered the flower girls dresses from this boutique. They were very pretty!

Rosalin is amazing. They are SUPER flexible with their schedule. One day i missed my appointment because my boss needed me to stay late, and they just easily rescheduled my fitting without hassling me about why i missed it.

The dresses were beautiful and when I found the one I wanted, she gave me a reasonable price. She is so talented that she only had to do one round of alterations and the dress fit perfectly!

The store front itself is quaint and doesnt have a super fancy vibe, but the service and quality is definitely worth not judging this book by its cover.

She is the cutest little lady ever and I would totally recommend this vendor!

Rosalin was fantastic. From my first visit to the store by myself when I found my beautiful Maggie Sottero dress through countless visits with friends and fittings she always made me feel welcome and valued. I got married a few months after getting engaged which kept me from ordering a dress, but Rosalin and her team made sure the sample dress was absolutely picture perfect for my wedding day and the alterations were done beautifully and in plenty of time before the ceremony.

I would definitely recommend Rosalin to anyone looking for a dress- they have great selection and the customer service is top notch!

I found the perfect dress for me at Rosalin's, and it was not one that I had originally selected to try on. After I'd tried a few, they chose a dress based on my body shape and preferences that they thought I might like -- and I fell in love. My experience at the shop was perfectly fine. They were helpful and courteous. I attempted to negotiate the price a bit; they consented to free hemming (which in hindsight I suspect they knew would be unnecessary). I had a bit of sticker shock when they told me how much the alterations would be, though I doubt it would have been any different at another shop. It's the nature of the beast. If you're looking for someone to dote over you as you parade around a fancy shop, perhaps Rosalin's is not the best option for you. If you're looking for the right dress at a reasonable price with quality workmanship in the alterations, you'll be just fine with Rosalin's.

This was the first place I went to look at dresses. There was a great selection (including bridesmaid dresses) and Rosalin pulled out a few dresses within my budget. I didn't get a dress right then and there because I wanted to check out other places.

I ended up coming back to Rosalin's to get the first dress I tried on because none of the other dresses I tried elsewhere really stood out for me. When I tried it on again, I fell in love with it more!

I thought she (or her staff) would call me to let me know when to come in for my first fitting and I was getting a little anxious because I hadn't heard from her until I called her store and they said they had mailed me a postcard to let me know. I never received the postcard because I moved and I just wished she called me instead (or at least follow up by phone). Other than that, I appreciated Rosalin's professionalism and customer service.

This place was such a surprise! I had an horrible time trying on dresses at a couple of other boutiques on the area and was getting very discouraged. When we arrived at Rosalin's, I didn't think much of it from the outside, but this place is PACKED with dresses! My mother, sister, and bridesmaid and I were pulling dresses and I was trying them on in the back when the owner walked back with a dress for me to try on. I put it aside at first and continued to try on the dresses we had pulled. Finally, I got to her dress, tried it on and loved it. I expressed that the dress would be perfect with a few changes and they were able to show me what the changed would look like and executed them perfectly.

A wonderful experience. Many dresses to choose from, and Rosalin pulled dresses she felt would work well for the time of year and location of my wedding. She was so kind, friendly, and helpful. I was on a shorter timeline. Rosalin was one of the only vendors I spoke with who didn't seem to feel the 4 month planning timeline would be an issue. She was able to get my dress and alterations all done within the timeline, and I never felt stressed about it. Great shop, great service, and great pricing.

I cannot say enough good things about Rosalin's. It's a really small shop in Falls Church but they have a great selection of gowns. My dress even came in a month early! But what really made the difference to me was the level of service I received. By the second time I went in they knew and addressed me by my first name, always greeted me with a smile, and were more than happy to help in any way. When my bustle wasn't done exactly to my liking they fixed it the same day and kept making changes until I was 100% happy with it (I hate bustles so I was very particular). The day I picked up my dress they even gave me a free blue garter for my "something blue" and made me promise to bring them pictures of me in the dress. I left with a huge smile on my face and the dress of my dreams.

My friend suggested Rosalin's Bridal Boutique for wedding dresses. They were very friendly and helpful. The third dress I tried on was the one! They did a great job hemming my dress and tailoring what need to be fixed. I suggest going to Rosalin's Bridal if you're looking for reasonably priced and elegant dresses.

I got my dress here and bridesmaid dresses. I didn't look anywhere else so I can't really compare the prices and selection to other places. I think they had a large selection for such a small shop. The service isn't great, I showed them some photos of what I wanted and they started pulling dresses that were way out of my price range. I think asking your price limit is something that should be asked right away. They also didn't help me much with trying the dresses on until I asked for help. We were able to negotiate the price down a bit on the dress but they wouldn't budge on the bridesmaid dresses.

If you want the full bridal shopping experience like Klienfeld's on "Say Yes to the Dress" this is not your place. But I loved my dress and got so many compliments on it so I don't have any regrets!

After going to a crowded, understaffed and overpriced bridal salon in Fairfax (Maria's) I was SO happy we made a second stop at Rosalin's. My mom, MOH and I got a huge private room, and Rosalin picked out some dresses based on the ones I picked out myself. I actually ended up going with one of her suggestions! The prices were literally half of what the dresses were at the other shop. My dress came in on time with no issues whatsoever and they were so helpful when I called and needed anything. I did my alterations elsewhere, as I already had a tailor that I trusted so I can't vouch for their alteration services, but everything else was great.

I had my heart set on a certain dress and ended up at Rosalin's because they were the only store in the area that had a sample of that design on hand. They were wonderful! Low pressure, allowed me to look through the dresses and pull ones I liked, and pulled dresses in a similar style in my price range to help me compare. I ended up purchasing the dress I originally wanted, but it was really refreshing to have options from a consultant I felt actually matched what I was looking for. The price was great as well, coming in a little lower than some of the quotes I had seen at other shops.

I could not be happier with my experience with Rosalin's Bridal Boutique! It's a little hard to spot and park, somewhat hidden below some offices, so I may never have found this wonderful store if it wasn't for a recommendation from a good friend who had found her dress there. I went in early in my dress hunt and wasn't completely sure what style I wanted. She picked out the most flattering, beautiful dresses for me. I ran around to other stores for a few weeks and ended up right back at Rosalin's buying the second dress I ever tried on! It's a designer dress but the price was excellent! They did a wonderful job with alterations and even customized the dress by ordering additional details to add to the bottom. Overall, I had an amazing experience, looked great on the big day, and would recommend Rosalin's to anyone!!

I LOVE ROSALIN'S!!! She made dress shopping so much fun!!! She was fantastic and patient when I dragged half my family in to come to each of my fittings, and was so flexible and helpful when I wanted to redo my bustle after the first time. The bustle turned out fantastic (held up a VERY heavy dress!). I would recommend this Bridal Boutique to EVERY bride!! My bridesmaids got their dresses here as well, and everyone is so happy!

I had gone to three other bridal shops before I walked into Rosalin's. Other shops had rushed me out after trying on a certain number of dresses or snapped the doors shut after exactly an hour of trying on. Rosalin's was a complete 180 to the other dress shops. I was allowed to try on for as long as I wanted and the dresses are beautiful. I liked how Rosalin's dressing rooms are quite large - no need to put on a gown then waltz out to the shared mirror area. There were several that I loved but I finally chose a Paloma Blanca gown (Rosalin's carries several gowns by this designer). The prices are very reasonable too! Rosalin's also did my alterations and the dress fit perfectly. I highly recommend Rosalin's for a great selection of dresses, excellent service and fantastic tailoring. Thanks Rosalin!

Rosalin has great dresses too chose from, but it kind of stops there. They are so busy that they really can't give you the time and quality of service you might need. When I first tried on my dresses there they were rude to my mom and were not very helpful to me. I went to other bridal shops, such as White Swan Bridal, whose customer service was so much better than Rosalin's. But I feel in love with a dress that they had on sample sale, so I bought my wedding dress there. Even when I went back to pick it up I wasnt impressed with their service. And since I did not have much confidence in them I got it altered somewhere else. They were unwilling to go down on the price of the dress, eventhough it was a sample, and unwilling to get it steamed for free. They told me since I was not having it altered there they would not steam it for free, and it would cost $75. Needless to say they have a great selection of dresses but if you are looking for quality customer service than other bridal shops are so much better than them.

I just took my dress in for alterations there because I bought it somewhere else. Alterations were minimal, just take it in a little bit and shorten it. Of course they charged me $450 for that, which is outrageous, but expected when dealing with wedding dresses and I took it to a bridal shop because I thought they would know what they were doing and not screw it up. Well they did. I went in for my first fitting and there were spots all over the dress, very noticeable. The woman tried to tell me that I brought it in that way, even though she wasn't the person I saw. I noticed the spots as soon as she handed me the dress, so I promise I would have noticed them before. She then tried to tell me that they fabric caused the spots... I'm not an expert, but I've never heard of fabric magically spotting itself without someone actually CAUSING it. Then went I went to try it on, she couldn't get it zipped up in the chest area. Now, I've heard of people gaining weight ... worst I could imagine. I just took my dress in for alterations there because I bought it somewhere else.

For this, she tried to tell me that side zippers are harder to zip up and she tugged and tugged and tugged until I thought she was going to rip the zipper out. When she finally got it zipped up, it felt like someone was sitting on my chest and I couldn't take a deep breath. The worst part is that they refused to take responsibility for it and were so matter of fact about it, like, "ok we'll see what we can do about getting it fixed for you." What if you don't? Then what? They have 2 weeks to make this right or else they will be buying me a new dress and paying someone else to alter it (on rush).

Oh Rosalin...why didn't I go to you first?!

Rosalin owns a very small bridal boutique in Falls Church. It's definitely not a opulent with pretty lighting and huge mirrors like other bridal stores. But she has a great selection of dresses and the PRICES...much lower than anywhere else. If you're going to end up buying the same dress from one boutique to the next, why not buy it cheaper?

I also got my alterations done at Rosalin's. I think she has someone else doing the alterations, not herself. My dress ended up a bit shorter than we had discussed the first time so they promptly fixed it without any issues. Rosalin also carries the perfect, I mean PERFECT bustier for strapless gowns, which I only found out about a week before the wedding after months of searching elsewhere. It was pretty expensive but I didn't have the time and it happened to fit perfectly. I have proportionally wider hips than bust so it was difficult to find a bustier that didn't bulge at the bottom and was seamless at the same time.

My only gripe is that I think Rosalin was supposed to call me when my dress came in but didn't do so. I had to check-in with her myself...but maybe I was responsible for doing this anyway? I don't know. 5 stars if I'm wrong. :-)

I unfortunately discovered Rosalin's after I had already purchased my dress elsewhere, but I ordered my veil (Erica Koesler) and my flower girl's jacket through them and had alterations done to my bolero jacket. Everything was wonderful. The veil came in very quickly and their price was much better than several other boutiques I called in the MD and VA area. The flower girl jacket also came in quickly and was perfect. I loved the alterations on my jacket, the seamstress had great suggestions and was very honest about what would and would not work. The alterations fee was a little high, but it was worth every penny. It is a family owned business and everyone is very nice to work with.

I did not try on dresses here, rather I just ordered my dress from here but then also had my alterations done by them. Truth be told, I think they did the following things in order to push my alterations bill higher:

- make you order a dress 2 sizes too big
- convince you are too tall for a std hemline so you have to order custom
- are too conservative when they alter so that you have to have go back multiple times
- don't do a great job on bustline alterations (my sweetheart neckline was obviously crooked the first time I saw it)

My dress was less than $700 - the shipping and the custom hemline were another $400. First round of alterations was $300. Next 2 rounds were $150 each. So basically the alterations made the dress 2x as expensive. I had like 5 fittings - insane!

I was so impressed by Rosalin's efficiency when I went there to try on dresses that when I found the dress I wanted elsewhere, I ordered it from Rosalin's (because I trusted them more with the whole process). This would have been fine, except that even though the petite length I needed was on all of the paperwork to be ordered, what I was supplied was the regular length...which I didn't realize until after I had made major alterations to the shape of the dress (basically taking it from an a-line to a fit-and-flare). This meant that I was stuck wearing 5" heels because I couldn't hem the dress unless I wanted to cut off the pretty lining at the bottom. I don't know if this was necessarily Rosalin's fault, since they ordered the correct dress and received the wrong one, but I suppose they may have neglected to check whether the dress was correct when it came in.

All this aside, we were ensured a complimentary pressing a week before the wedding. I was out of town, so my mom took my dress to get pressed and wasn't treated very nicely by the man we believe is the owner's husband. But this could be attributed to a culture and/or language barrier. Anyway, the process wasn't as efficient and seamless as we had hoped it would be, but compared to a lot of bridal salons, Rosalin's is pretty good.*

*Just be sure to get Rosalin herself to pin your alterations! When my dress came, I was in tears over how poorly it fit (when I expected it to be perfect since the sample size I ordered fit me perfectly), and the girl who was pinning my dress was doing it all wrong (i.e. taking out fabric from the skirt through the back instead of through the sides). We had a find Rosalin so that it could be done properly.

Rosalin's was the third boutique I visited - I liked it so much more than the other places because it is as other reviewers say - the mom & pop store of bridal boutiques. No pretentious lights, huge wall to ceiling mirrors or shiny marble floors. Just a little space with a ton of dresses (lots of bridesmaid dresses).

Rosalin listened to what type of dress I was looking for and came to the dressing room with three dresses - all that fit my general description. I tried on dress #1 and knew right away that it was my meant-to-be dress! All to say that Rosalin has a keen eye for picking out your style! The dress itself was more reasonably-priced than other boutiques. My only gripe is that the alterations were a bit pricey. In the end however, I suppose it was worth it since they had to fix a lot of different areas of the dress.

The dress came in earlier than anticipated, which was a nice relief since I had just heard about some boutique in NJ getting flooded. The staff isn't exactly sugary sweet but they're not pushy, which is a plus.

I purchased my Maggie Sottero dress at Rosalin's. It's a small mom and pop kind of shop, but I prefer that. I found more dresses that I liked here in this small shop than I found at the larger stores. Rosalin and her staff were all very friendly. My mom, sister, and I picked up my dress the day before my wedding and one of the assistants hugged my mom and everyone started crying. The alterations were a bit pricey, but I didn't mind paying it since it's family owned. I felt absolutely beautiful in my dress, and I would recommend anyone looking for a dress to stop by Rosalin's Bridal Boutique!

I had been dress shopping all over NoVa and comparatively speaking Rosalin made this experience one of a kind. We had a truly magical and memorable experience here which makes me love my dress even more than i thought I could!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#1 This store is not immense, but the selections are unique and impeccable. I went in on a whim specifically for one designer that Rosalin carries - but just to look, no intention of buying. I chose 5 dresses and Rosalin suggested 1 of her own - I hated it on the hanger and swore I would never like it. Then I tried it on...it knocked all my choices out and was even more reasonably priced that half of my choices!! She picked the perfect dress after knowing me for 15 mins.

#2, considering my wedding date was quickly approaching, we realized I had to order this coming weekend to ensure delivery time. Not being able to officially order without my parents approval (and oohs and aahs) I made an apt for the weekend and had my parents drive in from Ohio just to see the dress. Little did we know that The Snowpocalypse was underway and 5 inches of snow would fall during their drive. Needless to say, Rosalin kept her store open during the storm just for my parents to come in and see the dress.

Perfect dress found (all credit to Rosalin), perfcect dress ordered (thanks to them staying open!!!) and very happy parents that I fell in love with THE dress at half the price of my selections :)

These personal details I have cherished during my wedding planning experience. Thank you Rosalin!!!!!!!!!!!

I visited about six bridal stores in my quest for my dream wedding gown and I found it at Rosalin's. Unlike other stores that I had been to, the staff were very friendly and were attentive to my needs. Once the sales lady saw the kind of styles that I wanted, she started pulling out similar dresses for me. I really enjoyed my shopping experience with them.They were very responsive to my calls and answered any questions I had. Even when I went back to the store frustrated because my dress didn't fit(I ordered a size down), Rosalin was very nice and gave me a couple of options and calmed me down.

She definitely has a lot of experience and was willing to make the alterations to the dress for me.The only reason why I didn't let them make the alterations was because their prices were too high. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for nice wedding gowns that are reasonably priced.

Rosalin knows what she is talking about, she has many years of experience and I have no doubt that she can find anyone the dress of their dreams!! Not only is the rest of her staff friendly, but she also has a beautiful collection of dresses and reasonably priced. I am very happy to say that for every bride that I come across I will undoubtedly refer them to Rosalin Bridal because I know they will be taken great care of!!! Thanks again A. Rosalin!!

I had gone everywhere looking for the perfect dress. I was only 6 months away from the wedding and I was stressed out. I stumbled across this boutique by accident and was glad that I did. I found my perfect dress from Maggi Sottero and of course it was the most expensive one in the store $1800 to be exact. Way over my budget but I was under a time constraint aside from falling in love with the dress. The place isn't that nice and the fitting rooms a bit ghetto for the service that they offer. Make sure you go during the weekdays because the place is small and the weekends are nightmares you feel rushed if you end up getting a fitting room. Once I found the dress it took 5 months to get here. I also purchased my veil from this store. I didn't get the dresses for my bridesmaid or Matron from this store. You have to be careful when she takes your measurements thank God that my mom was there when she took them and she made sure she noticed my sizes correctly. Then she showed me the chart for that designer since sizes really vary from one designer to another. She wanted to get me a 4 petite but my mom made her order the next size up since the dress that you're ordering will be new and the fabric won't be stretched like the ones that you try in the store. And thank God that she did the dress fit like a glove!!!! Before she ordered the dress I asked her how much the bussell would cost me and she said approximately $80 so I was happy b/c I figured that is cheap. My mistake I didn't ask her to put that cost in the writing or in my files when the day of the fitting came she charged me $320 for the bussell and lifting half an inch from the bottom she didn't have to add or take away from the sides so I only imagine how much it would have cost. Then I told her that she promised me $80 but she said that she didn't remember and actually had me take to "husband" which was uncomfortable b/c he said that this was the price and showed on my record were they penciled in the cost and I didn't even initial it. What was I to do. Only 5 weeks away from the wedding plus they made me feel uncomfortable talking about the cost in front of other clients that were in the store. For the second fitting the dress was still to long and she even made a comment that I must have lost more weight b/c she did the raise the correct amount, but that wasn't my fault and of course she didn't charge me for that b/c it was her mistake. After the 3rd fitting the dress was perfect it should have been after spending over 2k on the dress. Please make sure you have enough time to look for your dress and if you decide to get the dress from this boutique make sure you have everything in WRITING. She also promised me that the cost to clean the dress was $250 when I went back to the store after the wedding to get my dress preserved cleaned etc the assistance said that the cost was $320 I laughed in anger and told her that once again she lied b/c Rosalin said that it was going to cost around $250 before the wedding. Then she said that the prices just increase wow in a matter of 4 weeks! My luck so they brought the price down to $300, the least that they could do considering the amount of money that I spent there. At the end of the day I loved my dress, I received so many compliments and there's no price for that. If I were to do it all over again I would make up my mind about my dress faster and I would get everything in writing to guarantee the cost of things I probably would have saved my money that way, it's all a learning process.
Good luck girls.

I didn't have a single bad experience at Rosalin's Bridal! I ordered 4 bridesmaid dresses from them and all came on time as promised or earlier. Their prices are great too! Only way I could afford to pay for all of my girls' dresses. Everytime I called w/ a question or needed to book an appointment or make last minute changes, the customer service was great. I did find their alteration prices to be a little high ($65 to hem a dress and shorten shoulder straps??), but taking the dress elsewhere for minor alterations is not a big deal. I highly recommend Rosalin's Bridal.

The Maggie Sottero was just beautiful. My daughter didn't like the way it laced up the back, so Rosalin's changed the back to a zipper. Rosalin did hesitate to remove the train, it took a shortening, and further prodding to get the length just where my daughter wanted it. When we went for the final fitting the dress was too tight and we were leaving for the destination in a week. Rosalin fixed everything in a timely manner. However, the snaps they attached to keep the bow in place did not work very well, and I had to keep fixing the bow throughout the evening. If you are looking for a gown, go to Rosalin's--just be determined and you will get exactly what you want.

I used Rosalin's as my vendor for the bridesmaids dresses. They ended up being my backup plan when my first vendor became a disaster (I learned to review vendors after that experience and found Rosalin's on Wedding Wire. First vendor had horrible Yahoo, Google & Wedding Wire reviews - live and learn).

Not only were they a lot cheaper - but they were very fast in ordering the dresses. One of my bridesmaids is pregnant with twins so they even helped her determine how much extra fabric she should order to let out her dress and ordered it cheaper than it would have cost us to order directly from the dressmaker.

One of my bridesmaid's referred her friend who is getting married this summer to Rosalin's for her bridesmaids dresses. Their prices cannot be beat and their service is great!

The dress I picked out was actually discontinued, so Rosalin's Bridal Boutique offered to sell me the store sample and they would do free alterations. I was very happy with the dress because Rosalin's takes very good care of their sample dresses (unlike other stores I visited where the beading is hanging off half the dresses and the zippers are all broken). Rosalin's dry-cleaned the dress, replaced the zipper, and took care of any loose threads so that the dress looked completely new. The dress was perfect. It fit like a glove after the first alterations and I could tell they took great care of my dress. The store has a nice dressing room with big mirrors so that you can get a great look at the dresses when you try them on. The staff are friendly and never pushy.

Rosalin's is like a diamond in the rough. I started my wedding dress shopping at some of the more know places in the area, but never found the perfect dress for me. I was tired from a full day of shopping and trying on dresses, but googled to find there was one more locally. My friend and I went to Rosalin's and from the outside it looks like nothing. It's in a very industrial part of Falls Church, and the shop is pretty tight, but the selection of dresses was good. After going to a few other dress shops, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted and Rosalin pulled a Maggie Sottero Dress out and said, how about this one? I immediately said YES!!!! That ended up being the dress I ordered. It was the Karena Royale (which was brand new at the time) and when the dress arrived, it looked amazing! I ended up needing a fair amount of alterations which get expensive (hem, bussle, taking in the waist, and I switched out the ribbon), but the day is all about you, and you need the dress to fit perfectly and look the way you want it.

The staff was great about keeping me updated when my dress arrived, ordering the correct size (at the time, but then I lost weight), charging me the correct amount, etc. They worked feverishly to have the alterations done in time, and always had smiles on their faces. You will definitely get the family owned business attention here where they really care about you and know who you are. I don't think you can say that about larger department stores and bridal shops! I would highly recommend Rosalin's and already have to my engaged friends!

After going to a few other dress shops, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted and Rosalin pulled a Maggie Sottero Dress out and said, how about this one? I immediately said YES!!!! That ended up being the dress I ordered. It was the Karena Royale (which was brand new at the time) and when the dress arrived, it looked amazing! I ended up needing a fair amount of alterations which get expensive (hem, bussle, taking in the waist, and I switched out the ribbon), but the day is all about you, and you need the dress to fit perfectly and look the way you want it.

The staff was great about keeping me updated when my dress arrived, ordering the correct size (at the time, but then I lost weight), charging me the correct amount, etc. They worked feverishly to have the alterations done in time, and always had smiles on their faces. You will definitely get the family owned business attention here where they really care about you and know who you are. I don't think you can say that about larger department stores and bridal shops! I would highly recommend Rosalin's and already have to my engaged friends! Read less

I purchased my dress and all the bridemaid dresses from Rosalin. She was so helpful from the start, she is actually the one that picked out my wedding dress. She was recommended to me by my cousin who also got her dress there after price shopping everywhere in the metro area. It may not look like she has a lot in her little store but she does! And her prices are great!

Rosalin's was the first store I visited because they had Maggie Sottero Dresses. It's a small store, but had a pretty good selection. Rosalin was very helpful in bringing dresses that I might like based on some of my initial choices. She was not pushy at all, and gave me plenty of time to wear each dress and take it all in. She allowed my Mom and I to handle the changing in/out of dresses ourselves. No pictures were allowed, a rule that I hated, but I got over it. I ended up going to several other stores, but returned to buy my dress at Rosalin's. She will also match the price of another store if you find your dress for less elsewhere. The only thing I would not recommend is letting them do your alterations, simply due to price. They quoted me about $150 more than I paid at a private seamstress (Angie Cavallaro).

I purchased bridesmaids dresses from Rosalin's. Overall, they were amazing. The dresses were below manufacturer's list price for the collection (if you can believe that!). They were $50 less than other bridal stores in the area on average.

Rosalin's had one major mistake that seems to be a theme with them. They ordered too-small dresses. At least three of my bridesmaids ended up choosing a size up from what Rosalin's recommended, and those three ended up with dresses that fit perfectly. About one bridesmaid the salesperson selected a size to me over the phone because "of course she will want to loose weight," which I found to be a poor assumption. One bridesmaid ended up getting a dress that was too small and having to alter it rather significantly. Thankfully Rosalin herself helped significantly with that process, ordering fabric to do the alteration and paying for half of it at the store's expense.

So, definitely shop at Rosalin's. Just do it with the designer's size chart in hand!

As a final, wonderful service, when I realize the Monday before my Saturday wedding that the dress that I'd purchased elsewhere desperately needed pressing and called (even though they were closed), a staff person picked up and they promised that if I brought it in Wednesday, they would have it by Friday afternoon. They did! I considered preserving my dress here, as they did a lovely job, but my seamstress was able to give me a better service for $50 less, so I ended up going with the cheaper deal.

I love this bridal shop! We got my dress and six bridesmaid dresses from Rosalin's. They also did our alterations. All were very affordable. Rosalin's did a great job. It was the 7th bridal shop I went to. I liked it because we were able to try on a lot of dresses in our own fitting room without a lot of fuss. The staff was available when we needed them, but did not hover or pressure. It was very refreshing!

I ordered my bridesmaid dresses from Rosalin's and I thought that they were just fine. They were the only dress shop in N. Virginia that carried the specifc style of dress that I wanted them to wear. I ordered the dresses 6 months in advance for the "just in case" problems. They had all arrived within 6 weeks of ordering them, amazing!! We did not get alterations done there because my bridal party did not live in the area. They were beautiful and I get so many wonderful comments on the style and color of the dresses.

I purchased my wedding dress at Rosalin's. It was the 7th (and last) bridal shop I visited, so I was happy to finally find 'The Dress'. I visited the store on a weeknight when it was less crowded and Rosalin herself helped me. Their prices are very reasonable and my dress arrived on time, if not a little early (approx. 4 months). I also received the best quote from Rosalin's for my bridesmaid dresses, and they also arrived early. They carry most of the popular bridesmaid dress designers. Based on some past reviews I read, I decided not to get my dress altered at Rosalin's, but my entire experience with Rosalin's was very positive.

I got my wedding dress and my bridemaid dresses at Rosalin's. I went in and described the dress that I wanted and Rosalin herself pulled out the perfect dress. I got the first one I tried on. My alterations were perfect too and about what you pay at any other bridal shop. All dresses came in way before they said they would. Only two of my bridemaids had their dresses altered at Rosalin's but the alterations also were perfect. One word of advice - make sure you order dresses based on actual measurements rather than what size dress you wear at regular stores. Bridal and bridesmaid dresses run at least one size smaller than what you would normally wear.

My bridesmaids ordered their dresses, and it arrived on time as promised. However, my matron of honor had an issue with alterations. They totally overcharged her and kept adding costs to the alteration. They had to order extra material and charged us for more than enough material, then made the dress "loose" so that it would fit for sure. At the fitting, we agreed it was still a little big so they charged us again to fix it. This wouldn't have happened if they did it right the first time around. Very frustrating.

I bought my dress and the girls dresses from here and had a bad experience with both. First they ordered my dress one size smaller than I wanted and when it came it didn't fit and the sales lady said don't worry all brides lose weight it will fit. I was furious and they checked our receipt and saw they ordered the wrong size and then ordered me a new one and it came in pretty fast but no discount was offered for my stress. The 2nd dress fit but i didn't use them for alterations. They wanted around $300 for a hem only. Then the girls dresses were a disaster. I ordered from them b/c they said they could get them for me for a little less money than another shop- big mistake. They were to come in 1 1/2 months before my wedding and after numerous phone calls, many headaches and stress they arrived 2 weeks before my wedding. They were the right dresses and right sizes but again no discount offered for their mistake whatever that was. They gave us the run around and we still don't know where the dresses came from but they didn't come from the manufacturer b/c I called them and they haven't done business with them since 1997- very fishy if you ask me. So they are not reliable when it comes to ordering dresses. In the end, I loved my dress and the girls dresses but the stress was not worth it at all.

I originally chose Rosalins because they offered me a cheaper price on a dress I found at another area retailer. However- if I was to do it again I do not believe I would have gone with them. They intentionally purchased a dress which was two sizes to large telling me that the reason they needed to buy it so big was to ensure that it would not be too fitted across my backside. When the dress came in it fell of and resulted in me having to pay for additional alterations.
Not only were the alterations extremely pricy ($600 which was over 1/4th of the cost of the dress) but they did not seem to know what they were doing. At my second fitting the dress had been altered and was still too long. The bustle had been placed in the wrong places and had to be re-done so that the dress would fall in a smooth line.
The night of my wedding the buttons they had placed for the bustle fell out during our first dance which resulted in my aunt having to sew the train to the back of my dress so that I could continue to enjoy myself. All in all I would not recommend their alteration services to anyone.

When it came time for dress shopping, I was clueless, and actually considering just wearing a fancy bridesmaid-style dress. Along with my mom and maid-of-honor, we went to 3 bridal shops on a very long Saturday. Rosalin's was the first store we went to and came highly recommended by my maid-of-honor, whose sister had gotten her bridal gown there the previous year. Rosalin's is a very small, very crowded shop. But the owners are very very friendly and if you tell them what you've got in mind, they'll pull a variety of dresses (and somehow seem to know just where everything is) that suit your style. I wound up getting a Maggie Sottero bridal gown, at a very reasonable price. The only hang-up came with the alterations. When the bust was brought in, they put the seams across the bust, creating a very unattractive line across the top of the dress. On our next visit, this was corrected. I also felt that the dress was ordered one size too small, but figured that the shop knew best based on my measurements. They wound up having to let the bottom of the dress out a little bit, which was rather costly. Had they ordered a size 8 instead of a size 6 to begin with, this might have been avoided altogether. All things considered though, we had a very positive experience at this shop, and even ordered the bridesmaid dresses from them as well, as they were about $100 cheaper here than at another local shop.

After searching at every bridal store in the DC area, trying on about 40 dresses (if not more), the second to last place I went to was Rosalin's. I went back the next day and bought my dress! The price was amazing and they give the best discounts in this area!
Rosalin did a super job making sure my bridesmaids and I got our dresses in time for fittings and final pressings. When my dress wrinkled at my house, Rosalin even re-pressed my wedding gown the day before my wedding!!

I would highly recommend looking there. They are fantastic!

This place has tons of dresses (don't let the outside fool you) and is very nice to work with--and they had best price I found on my Allure gown, online or otherwise! They also let me try on the sample of my dress 3 times before I bought, and twice after! My dress came in 3 weeks late, but still in plenty of time, and look and fits wonderfully! Overall great experience. Not generally recommended for alterations, but the dress-buying experience was flawless.

For bridesmaid dresses: Go in with quotes from netbride and they'll negotiate their already extremely low prices! All BM dresses came in a month early, perfect! One issue: they wouldn't let BMs do their final payments by check (just deposits), even though I was still waiting for my dress to come in, so it wasn't like we were going to write a bad check and flee. It seemed a bit insulting. Still recommend overall.

After searching several local stores I ended up at Rosalins. The store is small but there are a lot of dresses crammed into that small space. Their prices were fantastic and I loved the fact that the salespeople were accomadating yet not pushy. My dress did arrive late but because I ordered it so early it was never an issue. The bridesmaid dresses arrived earlier than expected and were priced much lower than other local stores. I went with Rosalin's for alterations after convincing them to lower the cost due to my dress arriving late. I only needed a hem and a bustle. They had my alterations done on time and they looked fantastic. I was especially happy with my simple bustle (although not so simple to bustle on the big day). I would definitely recommend this store for purchasing your dress from but not for its alterations if you are concerned about budget

They had my alterations done on time and they looked fantastic. I was especially happy with my simple bustle (although not so simple to bustle on the big day). I would definitely recommend this store for purchasing your dress from but not for its alterations if you are concerned about budget Read less

Rosalin's Bridal was excellent in every regard...as far as recommendations on dresses for myself and my bridesmaids as well as alterations. We ordered the bridesmaid dresses through Rosalin's, but they were shipped out to my bridesmaids that were located all over the US. My wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses required a lot of time to get due to the vendors, however rosalins was always accommodating with alterations. I recommend this vendor...absolutely!

Rosalin's was wonderful. They have a great selection--even though the shop is small, they manage to pack a lot more in there than the bigger shops in the area. They offer great suggestions, and are very patient as you explore their options. The staff at Rosalin's is so much friendlier and more helpful than I found people to be elsewhere. Both my dress and the bridesmaids' dresses came in well ahead of schedule, and they did the alterations exactly as discussed. After the wedding, they took care of getting the dress cleaned, and did a great job with that as well. Perhaps most importantly, their prices are incredible.

Loved my wedding dress. Too expensive for me tho although I had to make few adjustments and changes. MY veil wasnt the type of the veil I really liked at first so we made few changes and the second one was fine enough. Van was really patient and helpful. All of my guests liked my dress and they said that it suits my personality. I will be returning to Rosalin's to preserve my dress.

I went to Rosalin's looking for a specific designer and found a dress that I love. As far as alterations, my dress fit well...it had one shoulder strap and fitted through the hips. On my wedding day, I sat down before the ceremony for pictures with my photographer and immediately heard a tear. My shoulder strap ripped off and we pinned it back in place. (Had to do this about 15 times during my wedding day.) I don't know if it's a reflection of their alterations or if places typically don't have you try the dress in sitting and various positions but it would be nice to be able to move in the dress as well. On a positive note, the owners at Rosalin's were always able to fit me in on the weekend for my dress fittings, although that tends to be their busier times.

The quality of customer service varied, depending on who was helping me. I actually took my sister here to look for her wedding gown and they did not help us at all. I was helping her get into the gowns and had to ask for clips and I was the one clipping the backs to make the gown look more her size. We carried the gowns to the fitting room, and no one checked on us while we were in there. I don't know what the deal was but they didn't seem to care that day.

I can't say enough about how fabulous Rosalin's was to work with! I visited three bridal shops and found my dress at this little place in Falls Church (you will probably drive right by it and not see it). She has a fabulous inventory of Maggie Sottero and a few others, and definitely knows her stuff, from what style goes with your body type to what fits with the venue. They handled all of my bridesmaids and flower girl too! Rosalin is super sweet and her seamstress did an amazing job with the few tweaks needed to my dress.

This boutique is perfect for the bride that wants to select a dress without all the fru-fru drama of some other bridal dress stores. It is a very small and very low-key location. I liked that I could pay my dress off in installments and the tailor work was well done. I would recommend this to brides that are looking for dresses under $5k.

However, the accounting system could use improvement, as some human errors were made since it is done by hand. The alteration price also went up every time it was discussed, so better documentation of that would be better for the customer. We worked it out in the end, but make sure you keep records of all quotes and payments. A note: having signs to not take pictures seems a bit rude considering the purpose of this store. We did take a few pictures anyways for the dress fitting and appreciate not being chastised for it.

After having gone to three bridal salons in the days before and having awful experiences, I was pretty beaten down. And then I went to Rosalin's and within an hour found my dress! Rosalin herself actually picked it out, having seen what I liked (and didn't like) about some of the other ones I had tried on. We were so pleased with the service (and the prices!), that we ended up ordering bridesmaids dresses from Rosalin's and getting all of my alterations done there. They were extremely patient about doing several rounds of alterations (I did what you're not supposed to do and lost a bunch of weight right before the wedding), and all of the alterations came out perfectly -- even a sash they made from scratch based on ideas I had! Rosalin even teared up giving me a hug as I left the store with my dress a few days before the wedding!

Rosalin's is not the place you go if you want to pay for fancy decor and cocktails but, then again, their dresses were consistently several hundred dollars cheaper than the same dresses at other stores. And you are treated like family at Rosalin's. I couldn't recommend them enough!

Rosalins was a complete hole in the wall and a total diamond in the ruff, but I am SO lucky to have found this little shop. Rosalin did an exceptional job listening to what I liked and didn't like about dresses and finding the cut and style that would work best for me and my figure. Her prices were really competitive and the selection of Bridesmaids dresses was astounding. Rosalin did a ton of last minute alterations and work for us and even created a custom pocket in my dress to hold a medical device. The only negative thing I can say is that my bridesmaids felt their dress alterations were a bit pricey and that the size chart we used for them didn't sync up with the sizes we ordered. This is partially the dress companies fault and partly my bridesmaids fault for their measurements, but when faced with a $60 alteration fee, they weren't exactly thrilled. I'm not sure if that is considered reasonable or not as I've never had a formal floor length gown altered before, but the work done was executed professionally and the peace of mind knowing rosalin was working on the items made it worth it for me. I will certainly go back to this shop when I need a bridesmaid dress in the future for other people's weddings, and I will recommend this shop to my friends.

Rosalin’s was the first place (other than a trial run at David’s Bridal) I looked for my wedding dress, and where I ended up buying it. They were extremely accommodating, allowing me and my entourage of four to have a room all to ourselves, and try on as many dresses as we wanted. I ended up liking very much a Paloma Blanca dress. We looked for the same style of dress many other places (including back home in Indiana) and couldn’t find it anywhere as low as the price they offered at Rosalin’s.

In addition to shortening the dress so that it fit me, they also added nice wide pleated straps (using the fabric from the hem) so that the dress was no longer strapless, which was what I wanted.

The quality of the dress and the service was very good, as was the value.

However, my only quibble is with the quality of the alterations. I’d asked for the dress to be prepared to be bustled for the reception. They agreed to this, and I paid for it, but when we got to the wedding, we didn’t have the ties necessary to hold up the bustle. (Luckily, I had several seamstress bridesmaids, and some spare ribbon). Also, while one of my straps (the one they’d actually pinned on me) fit perfectly, the other one was loose and looked awkward all night. You could see it kind of hovering above my actual shoulder.

While I highly recommend Rosalin’s to actually purchase your dress, I would recommend having it altered somewhere else.

I told them that my only criteria was that I didn't want a strapless dress. I tried on about 15 dresses and found exactly the one I wanted. They replaced the crystals that were on the dress with lace and it turned out beautifully. Just keep in mind that each alteration or change costs money, it can add up quickly. I would not necessarily recommend them for bridesmaids dress, there weren't many options and we went elsewhere for the bridesmaid dresses. But I loved my dress!

Rosalin's was a great experience for selecting and purchasing my daughter's bridal gown. The price of her gown was less than comparable gowns in other salons. Rosalin was very kind and helpful. We do agree with other reviewers that the alteration costs are sky high. It seems that they "make up" for the reduced price gowns by increasing the alteration prices. We were given an alteration price of $800ish and Moni's in Manassas priced the same alterations at $200ish!

When searching for my dress, like most brides, I started at David's Bridal. I actually found a dress that I almost bought there, but I knew I had an appointment at Rosalin's in only a few hours so I figured I might as well go there and see what happens. THANK GOODNESS I didn't buy that other dress and kept my appointment at Rosalins. Like many have said, her shop is not extravagant with huge mirrors and lots of open space. In fact, it's very small with only three dressing rooms but that's okay! I went in knowing the type of dress I liked and Rosalin picked out five dresses for me... maybe six. Of those dresses, I loved 2 but really felt RIGHT in 1. She picked it and it was stunning. Her prices for her dresses are great, but I will forewarn anyone that her prices for alterations are a bit steep. The alterations were done very well, so I won't say that it's not worth it but I do wonder if I could've had it done for cheaper. Overall, Rosalin and her staff are very nice and helpful. They sent me a postcard in the mail when my dress came in a month earlier than expected and I didn't go see it for another four or so months and left it there until two days before my wedding. When I picked it up, Rosalin told me how to take care of it until the day of the wedding, hugged me, told me to send her a picture, and gave me a free garter as "something blue" since it had a blue bow on it.

I would highly recommend her shop to any bride or bridal party looking for a dress!

I found Rosalin's through wedding wire, and agree with the other reviewers; this was a great place to get my dress, and everything worked out as expected. I knew they carried a designer whose dresses I like and who was in my price range, and I got a great price for the dress I wanted.

I ordered my dress in May and it arrived a few days early, in the first week in September (although I will note that this was a rush order; our wedding was September 25th - I did have to pay rush charges, which is annoying, but par for the industry). Rosalin's recommendation on what size to get was spot-on; although I'm using a different woman to do my alterations, I don't need many - just the bustle and to have the bust taken in, which I would have needed wherever I'd gotten my dress.

I gave 4 stars for responsiveness, only because they gave me different answers as to whether my dress had arrived when I called a couple days in a row, and I ultimately discovered that they had the wrong address for me. They apparently sent me a postcard (a bit odd) to let me know my dress had arrived; give it was a rush order, I think a call would have been more appropriate, but it didn't end up mattering; I got my dress in time and was pleased with it.

Overall, Rosalin's was friendly, responsive, professional, and one of the better vendors I've met in this whole planning process (they even gave me a garter as a gift for buying my dress from them - too cute). This is a small, family-owned business and it felt like a much more personal experience than some of the massive bridal warehouses you could shop at. I would certainly go with Rosalin's again if I had to do it over, and I will recommend it to my friends.
