About Sealed with a Kiss
Our eye for design and quality play an enormous part in choosing the collections that make it to the store. We often watch a designer for a while - we need to see cutting-edge design, season after season. Does it fulfill what our brides are looking for? Is the majority of their collection made up of “good design”? Is the quality of fabric and workmanship worth the price of the gown? Do they have excellent customer service?

We watch designer fashion shows, examine, and pick out the gowns that we feel our brides will love. Many months go by, and the fun continues when we start receiving boxes of new gowns. Finally, we get to see our brides trying on the designs we selected, and hopefully, we see some their wedding photos, too!

Find your own unique style! At Sealed with a Kiss Bridal, you are an integral part of the design of your dress. High quality fabric and beautiful finishing are our hallmark.

“You just can’t imagine how pampered I feel and how much I have enjoyed the process of getting my dress designed and made just for me.”
— Lee Powell, Charlottesville VA Read less

I am over the moon about my purchase. Jordyn listened to everything I was looking for, or I should say my long list of things that I didn't want. They had a huge selection of dresses with straps since I knew I didn't want a strapless gown. The experience was so personal given that they reserve the store for clients to have personal appointments. My mom and I loved the experience. I am recommending as many brides to be as I can! Thank you Sealed with a Kiss!

Susan made my wedding dreams come true! I started dress shopping in Texas and I honestly thought the very first dress I tried on was MY dress. But my plan was to purchase from Kleinfelds in NYC (the "Say Yes to the Dress" store) so all the other stores were just practice runs. After Texas, I went dress shopping in Richmond, VA and was very disappointed in the selection. My next stop was West Main & all the dresses I tried on were lovely. But there was one dress that was over the top & I only tried it on because my mom insisted. I put the dress on & instantly felt like a princess! The dress was fabulous. My thought was that if I could get a dress like this in Charlottesville, the dresses in NYC would be amazing. I tried on several dresses in different price points in NYC but the West Main dress was by far my favorite.

Susan was such a pleasure to work with. She even made me a second dress for my reception. Her prices are also the most reasonable I saw in all 4 of the dress stores. I was able to get two dresses and accessories for under my budget.

I will gladly send a picture of my wedding dress to anyone considering another bridal salon & you will completely understand why Susan was the perfect choice.

My experience at West Main Bridal was topnotch!
I purchased a custom-made gown made of high quality shantung silk and silk organza -- it was stunning. It needed slight alterations that Susan did in-house and with professional perfection. Jessica's patience, assistance and feedback were greatly appreciated since I was shopping alone. This is a low pressure environment and an excellent place to start and finish your dress shopping experience. Susan will work with you completely to help find you that perfect dress and look. I was very impressed with their Suri line of bridesmaid dresses and the variety of bridal gowns in the shop. If you live in or around Charlottesville (or anywhere in VA!) you should definitely go here and support this locally owned business.

I cannot say enough great things about West Main Bridal!! I was hesitate at first because it seemed like a small shop but there were by far my favorite. I really appreciated the sales style of the wonderful JESSICA who was extremely helpful but also laid back, was not pushy at all, and did not make me try on dresses I didn't want to. They listened to me, were very flexible with appointments, and were always incredibly friendly and fun to work with. SHARON is also fabulous!!! She altered my dress, added beautiful (and unique) straps to my wedding dress! I have already recommended multiple friends to this store!!

Getting my wedding dress at West Main Bridal was a wonderful experience. The staff was kind, helpful, and professional, and the dress selection was beautiful.

I wasn't even shopping for dresses the day I found mine- I saw one I loved in West Main's window and went in just to see the price. I tried it on and liked it, but the owner suggested I try on another by the same designer. I tried the second dress on and fell in love.

The whole process was personal, kind, unrushed, and fun. After having been to bigger shops, it was SO much more pleasant to be in a place that takes the time to work with you and lets you take the time and ask the questions that you need to in order to have the perfect dress with the perfect fit.

When my dress came in, I loved it, and it needed no alterations whatsoever. (Incidentally, I see in an earlier review that they didn't offer alterations- that must have changed, because they told me they could do them and gave me a price and time estimate if I needed them, which I didn't.)

I also got my gorgeous veil from West Main- Susan was very patient with me and let me try on veils for almost an hour before I picked mine. A wonderful experience!

I had looked in Richmond, Northern VA, DC and even Maryland, but just as I was about to give up I checked West Main Bridal. I found the most helpful people and the perfect couture dress. I can't get over how accomodating they were...I highly recommend their services!

I absolutely loved working with the staff at West Main Bridal. It is such a quaint shop and I really enjoyed it. Their new location is amazing and in a great shopping area. I was able to find the Maggie Sottero gown I had been searching all over for and once I finally tried it on, I knew that was the one. I got my gown, crinolin, veil, shoes and all of my jewelry at West Main and everything was amazing. They have a great selection of gowns as well as a great selection of jewelry. I loved that it was a one stop shop for me and I did not have to go searching everywhere for my attire. I highly recommend West Main.

Working with West Main Bridal & Couture was one of the highlights of my wedding. I absolutely love my wedding dress - I keep trying to think of another event I can wear it to but my husband says I shouldn't :) My dress was custom designed with the help of Lisa and Susan in the shop as well as the designer in New York, and everyone was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. Because it is a boutique, West Main Bridal has a much warmer, more personal atmosphere than larger bridal shops. I found the dress I wanted the minute I walked in the store, but my mom suggested that I look at least one other place just in case, so I went to a big bridal shop in Northern Virginia. It felt like a whirlwind, and I certainly felt like I was lost in the shuffle of all the activity surrounding me (I also didn't see any dresses I liked!). So I came back to West Main Bridal right away and worked with them for the next few months before our wedding. West Main Bridal is wonderful!

I was beyond thrilled with my wedding gown and veil, and with my entire experience in working with the team at West Main Bridal. From the moment I walked into the shop, I was greeted warmly and had more personal attention than I ever thought I would receive when shopping for a gown. Every visit to West Main Bridal was a real treat! Susan worked with me to custom-make my gown and it turned out incredibly beautifully and fit perfectly. I loved the special custom details such as the sash, the ruching at the top, and my gorgeous veil. Susan had an amazing ability to read what I wanted, and delivered it in a way that surpassed my expectations with a great deal of personal attention given to me and my family prior to my wedding. The end result was a gorgeous ensemble that I truly loved. I could not have been happier with my wedding day attire, and would recommend West Main Bridal to any bride looking for a wonderfully personalized experience!

I’m so happy I purchased my gown from Sealed with a Kiss! I live in Charlottesville, so it was very convenient to go there during the week for my dress fittings. We also rented the tuxes here, which made everything easy and they looked great. Jessica was wonderful to work with and knew me every time I walked in the store. Susan does a perfect job with the alterations and she is fast! I do recommend ordering a custom fit for your dress (if it's an option), because only a small adjustment needed to be made. My dress and veil were gorgeous, and the tuxes looked sharp. I highly recommend Sealed with a Kiss!

I wanted to buy my wedding dress with my mom in Virginia, but I live in Ohio, so I was really grateful West Main Bridal was willing to ship my dress to me once they received it in the store. The consultant was attentive and professional, and I felt like my experience was very positive. It's definitely more of a boutique type of shop as opposed to the big box wedding dress store, but their selection was still reasonably good with dresses from a handful of different designers. I was a little surprised they had literally not a single dress in shop with straps or cap sleeves, but luckily, I fell in love with a strapless dress, and they also made my veil and had the sash I wanted. The one criticism I have is that they obviously didn't open the box to inspect the dress once they received it--not only was some of the beading loose, which had to be fixed by a seamstress, but they forgot to put the dress in a bag. They were not willing to ship the bag to me at their expense, so my mom had to pick it up from the shop and mail it to me.

Some of the associates are frank to the point of being unprofessional, but they will give good information and get the job done. They have a nice gown selection and the prices aren't bad. I found my dream gown there and couldn't be happier. I wouldn't go there for bridesmaid or mother of the bride dresses, however, as the options are rather unimpressive.

I was able to find my dream dress at West Main Bridal. I suppose I was an "easy" client, since I only tried on 3 dresses before purchasing a sample dress that only needed very minor alterations. I had some difficulty getting in touch with someone by phone, but they were great otherwise. The alterations were completed in a timely manner, and I was pleased with everything.

I purchased my first dress soon after my engagement, but several months later when at West Main with my future sister-in-law, fell in love with one of the gowns there. They worked wonderfully with me doing many measurements leading up to the wedding (as I was losing weight) and I was SO HAPPY with my dress on my wedding day. Everyone loved it, my husband said it was PERFECT - the best thing any bride can hear!

West Main's staff made buying a wedding dress an easy process. Everyone that assisted me in the selection of my dress was kind, courteous, and gave opinions that were respectful and useful. The owner was especially helpful when she fitted me for the dress, advising me to go with a specific size rather than a couture fit because she knew that given how my chosen dress ran, I most likely wouldn't need an extra inch taken in in the bust. This advice saved me a few dollars, which I great appreciated! When my dress arrived, exactly when it was meant, she was correct and it didn't even need any alterations! The price I paid for my dress was also on the lower end of the price range for that style, given my online investigations of what the dress usually sold for. The whole experience was excellent.

After visiting 3 bridal stores in Northern Virginia, I was hopeful that I'd be able to find my dress on a weekend trip down to Cville. The women who helped me at Sealed With a Kiss looked at dresses I had pinned on Pinterest and suggested some styles that would work in my budget. Their selection isn't huge, but they had quite a few that fit my style. Compared to some of the other stores I had been to in NOVA, they were much more attentive (helped me get the dresses on in the fitting room, weren't simultaneously helping other customers, not too pushy, etc.). While I ended up picking a dress that was more than I'd planned to spend (thanks Mom!), it's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding. Even though I came in to the store with less than 5 months until my wedding, Sealed With a Kiss was able to get the dress without a rush order, and they have been very flexible and responsive with scheduling my fittings.

The in-store shopping experience was pleasant. I was looking for a very specific type of dress, V-neck and A-line and not too frilly. My goal was to spend about $700 or less. I ended up finding my dress here but was a bit above my goal at $982 (included custom hem, shipping cost X2 and tax). I was moving out of state before the dress would come in and the store was able to mail it to me for an additional $45 shipping. I was told the dress would be in by mid-July (wedding was on September 7th). Mid-July came and went and I didn't have a dress. I contacted the store. They were very responsive to my questions via phone & email. They even attempted to see if the manufacturer (Casablanca) could ship it to me or a store near me (they wouldn't). Casablanca did not ship the dress to the store until sometime after the 20th. Since they were delayed, the store did ship the dress to me with 3 day shipping at no extra charge, which was nice. Thankfully, the dress only needed minor alterations and steaming. Also, I do not remember discussing the issue of a dress bag at the time of purchase, but thought that it would be included with the wedding dress. It was not in the box with my dress so maybe they do not include it. That might be something to ask about at time of purchase if that is important to you. I was easily able to order one off Amazon. It just would have been nice to know in advance that I wouldn't receive a bag so I could have purchased one before I received the dress. As it was, I had to take it to the tailor in a makeshift dress bag made of trash bags.

I found my dream gown here for a fraction of the price and couldn't have been happier! The staff was quite helpful and I loved that you always had their undivided attention when trying your dress on (make sure to call ahead to be sure they aren't already with a customer). The only drawback was that they said they called me twice to let me know that my dress was in, but I never received any calls or voicemails. Luckily, I called and found out that it had been sitting there for over 3 weeks. Other than that, wonderful service!

I loved my dress. The only complaint I have is that you can't get alterations done at the store. I had measurements done before ordering the dress, but still had to have alterations done once the dress arrived. I do like how you have to make an appointment when dress shopping so you get individualized attention. And as stated here, they have beautiful dresses. Susan was very patient with me, and took as much time as I needed to find the dress. I had no idea what I wanted when I started dress shopping. West Main was the first and last place where I shopped for a dress. Also, for those brides who don't have a lot of money to spend, definitely check out the sample sale in the spring, which has inexpensive yet affordable dresses.

Sealed with a Kiss Bridal has beautiful dresses at reasonable prices and a pleasant sales staff. HOWEVER, the seamstress/owner is HORRIBLE. She is very rude and tried to talk me into keeping a dress that was too small due to their ordering mistake. At the urging of the sales staff, I ordered a custom fit gown. When I received the gown, the hips were tight. I just thought I had gained weight so I took it home. I realized a few days later (by seeing the tag) that the gown I had received was an off-the-rack size 10! This was the middle size of the three sizes that I had measured (which is what prompted me to order a CUSTOM size). So I had not gained weight it was just that the dress was actually just a size too small in the hips. Oh and BTW the custom sizing cost an extra $200ish. I called to let them know of the problem and they tried to convince me to just keep it. I asked to come in so that they could look at it. During my appointment, the seamstress continued to try to have me keep the dress. When I refused to keep it, they suggested that they order a size up and just give me store credit for the extra money I had paid instead reimbursing me. And they did not even offer a discount or anything for my trouble. So basically they did not tell me they changed my order, tried to just keep the extra money I gave them, and then tried to convince me to keep a dress that didn't fit because it was better for them rather than looking out for my best interests. DO NOT GO HERE!

Working with West Main Bridal was the only negative to my entire wedding... From the beginning this place was a nightmare and the most stressful vendor I worked with. I purchased my dress from here and it just went down hill from there. While I was trying on my dress, a customer walked in and started to look at shoes. She was told by a member of staff "you dont have an appointment to look at those shoes.. if you would want to schedule one, you can come back".. Overall the two young girls that work there are very pleasant, but the owner is not particularly friendly and can be quiet rude. They are very disorganized, our information was keep in several different places and they asked us the same questions multiple times, which can be very frustraiting. They did not return phone calls and were difficult to get in touch with.. we made the mistake of also getting our tuxes here (they are cheaper than getting them at the mall... do not make the same mistake we made)... Not one tux came in correct!

Many of my friends have gone to Bridal Impressions in Harrisonburg.. Honestly, it is worth the drive.. they are the nicest people I have ever met. Wish I had gone there myself!

Overall the two young girls that work there are very pleasant, but the owner is not particularly friendly and can be quiet rude. They are very disorganized, our information was keep in several different places and they asked us the same questions multiple times, which can be very frustraiting. They did not return phone calls and were difficult to get in touch with.. we made the mistake of also getting our tuxes here (they are cheaper than getting them at the mall... do not make the same mistake we made)... Not one tux came in correct!

Many of my friends have gone to Bridal Impressions in Harrisonburg.. Honestly, it is worth the drive.. they are the nicest people I have ever met. Wish I had gone there myself! Read less
