Terri Lynn was the first and only place I went for my dress. I love that you are the only client so they can give you 100%. They were very honest with how everything looked and were never pushy. It was great with how flexible they were since I was an out of town bride. Lastly, their seamstress did great. My dress fit perfectly.

They have lovely dresses in the medium high price range. There is no high sales pitch and Jeannie was wonderful. The alterations were not cheap but the lady was great. This is a very nice small store and they make you feel very welcome.

After many months of searching, and less than 8-weeks from my wedding, I found the dress of my dreams at Terri Lynn bridal. I instantly recognized my dress and Terri Lynn graciously agreed to sell it to me off rack, despite it being a recent arrival to her shop. In addition to my dream dress, there were many fabulous dresses - any one of which I may have considered if I hadn't already seen "the one". Unlike other dress shops, nobody here suggested that I add or subtract details of the dress - as if it were a kit of parts put together on an assembly line. I've heard this suggestion many times - typically when I requested to see styles with straps or sleeves. Terri Lynn had many dress options with sleeves or staps that were part of the original design - no need to tack on to a design intended to be strapless. My dress was a classic lace look with a contemporary twist - the lace boat neckline transitioned to a more open spaghetti strap back - just the right amount of sexy. Also, my dress, & many others in the store, had just the right amount of train for my garden wedding ceremony. The staff & seamstress were professional & worked fittings around my busy schedule. In fact, all of my visits to Terri Lynn were on a Sunday which was very convenient. No need to worry about parking in Bethesda - there is a public parking garage directly across the street from Terri Lynn - evenings / Sundays are free. Thank you Lana for doing a terrific job on the few alterations that I required & providing such a beautiful bustle. While my dress was a little more expensive (I cut costs in other areas of my wedding budget.) there was definitely a range of dress prices & styles to consider at Terri Lynn Bridal.

Terri Lynn Bridal was the first wedding dress store I visited and no other place could compare! What I really appreciated about Terri Lynn Bridal is that there was never any pressure to purchase the dress I fell in love with (incidentally the very first dress I tried on!). She simply said at the end of the appointment that I was welcome to come back and try it on again. Other stores I visited were always trying to give you the hard sell, which I absolutely hated. The other great part of the experience is that when you make an appointment, you have the entire store to yourself. It was a very relaxing experience! You will be paying around $2,000 or more for your dress at this store, but I can tell you that the quality and selection is impeccable. I received so many compliments on my dress. Terri Lynn knows what she is doing!

My initial experience with Terri was wonderful, and after finding about 10 dresses at other bridal salons with terrible service, I decided to go with a gown at her shop since she was so nice. After I ordered my dress, every other interaction was awkward and sometimes rude. They had a very strict inflexible fitting schedule, and had told me they would let me know when to order my veil and never did. When it was time to order it, they told me it would have to be rushed and it would cost extra. My dress didn't fit quite like the sample dress in the same size, and the hair flower changed prices a couple times. Things like that made the experience buying my dream dress really unpleasant. Their seamstress was really sweet, and talented, but the sample dress fit perfectly and we asked that it be ordered in exactly the same size, and it came in ill fitting and had to be altered 3 times. The dress did end up looking great on my wedding day, I just wish they would have had better customer service through the 8 months I was dealing with them.

While Terri Lynn is a smaller store, this allows them to give the one on one attention that a bride deserves. They are very knowledgeable in knowing what dresses will look best, and were able to help me find exactly what I had pictured. Each time I visited the store, they were exceptionally friendly and attentive. Their seamstress is wonderful as well, and made sure my dress fit perfectly. She also custom designed a sash for me using leftover lace from my dress. Overall, they have a wonderful staff who will make sure you look your very best on your wedding day!

I absolutely LOVED my dress! I looked at dress stores in 5 states and found what I was looking for at Terri Lynn Bridal. The store is a small boutique so you get one-on-one attention, but has a gorgeous selection of dresses. Also, in terms of value for money I couldn't be happier. Terri carries beautiful and reasonably priced dresses which cannot be said for some of the other bridal stores in the DC area. I would highly recommend this store!

Terri is the best! I purchased my dress, veil and shoes from Terri back in October. I had been to two other stores before visiting Terri. Each appointment is private so you are alone with Terri in the store while you shop and try on different dresses. When I arrived she asked me what I had liked so far that day...she happened to have the same dress I fell in love with at a prior store but for almost $1,000 less!

Two months ago my Grandmother decided to buy me a different veil as a gift. Terri was extremely flexible and removed the veil I had purchased from my bill for me with no issues.

When my dress was ready to be shipped she emailed me immediately with all the details and to schedule my first fitting.

If you want personal, friendly service this is the place to go! She is passionate about what she does and goes above and beyond to make sure you are well taken care of.

Terri Lynn's bridal boutique is by far a cut above the rest! The shop is very intimate, and all of the appointments are private and in person with Terri herself, meaning that you have her undivided attention. She specializes mainly in ballgowns, but is very flexible and willing to search for whatever fits your personal style. I felt very comfortable, and never felt undue pressure related to timing or pricing, as I often did at other vendors.

Terri Lynn is very personable and is promptly responsive. I was always able to reach her very quickly. Her hours are outstanding! Most of her appointments take place on weekends or in the evening, which I found helpful when juggling a full time work and school schedule.

Finally, Terri Lynn's professional demeanor is top notch. I ran into a few hitches with my wedding date, and she was extremely accomodating throughout the entire ordeal. I would absolutely recommend her to any friend or family member. If you are anywhere in the DC area, this is one shop worth visiting!

I went to 20 salons - no joke. Hannelorre's in Alexandria was the worst. Terri Lynn Bridal was by far the best.

They were easy to work with, reasonably priced, not pushy or rude and very responsive. I went in for my final fitting the Sunday before my wedding and my dress did not fit and I mean it was too small. It would not zip up! Yikes! That does not feel good at all. She smiled - said no problem - come back tomorrow. I went back thinking I would be working out three times a day and eating tuna for a week, but it fit perfectly. It is a small shop but the dresses they have are unique, gorgeous, and again reasonably priced.

Terri Lynn Bridal saved the day!! She has THE most gorgeous selection of wedding gowns and impeccable taste. Under a stressful, dramatic, and time-sensitive situation, Terri Lynn, her staff, and her seamstress made my experience seamless and unforgettable. I also got TONS of compliments about my dress on my wedding day.

I first saw the dress that I fell in love with (Martina Liana) at Terri Lynn Bridal. I knew I loved the dress, but I told Terri Lynn that I had a few more appointments at other salons. She did not pressure me in any way, but wished me well and said she would be available if I came back. I then went to Love Couture Bridal (a neighboring bridal salon in Potomac), tried on several dresses, and kindly told them that I did not want to waste any more of their time because I found my dress at another salon. The owner of Love Couture told me that she JUST opened an account with Martina Liana and could get me the same dress, which I described AND showed pictures of on the internet, for a lower cost. I was still uneasy, but the owner eventually pressured me to buying the dress from Love Couture and assured me that everything would work out amazingly. That definitely did not happen.

When the dress came ~6 weeks before the wedding, the one-shoulder ruffle that accompanies the dress did not arrive (hence her "lower price" as it did not include the statement piece of the dress - the ruffle). Unbeknownst to both the owner and me, the ruffle was sold separately. After trying to remedy the situation and get the one-shoulder ruffle on a tight timeline, including an intense argument with the owner four weeks before my wedding when she told me that, "I was unappreciative of everything she did to help me, that I needed to take responsibility as a consumer, and that she was ready to just give me my money back and part ways with me,"...I learned that Love Couture was NOT AN AUTHORIZED DEALER for Martina Liana. This explained why she did not know the one-shoulder ruffle was sold separately and why she could not help me get the one-shoulder ruffle from Martina Liana. Designers will only work with their authorized dealers, and Martina Liana explained to me that they did not know how Love Couture got the dress and that it may not be authentic?! After 3 weeks of wasted time and arguments, I asked for a refund (since she offered that during one of our arguments). The owner of Love Couture agreed, however, she would NOT refund me for $70 of shipping charges because "they do not 'make money' on shipping." At the end of the day, I just do not understand why Love Couture would go through so much trouble and act unethically to sell ONE dress!!?? I just don't get it.

After the mess with Love Couture, I called Terri Lynn, told her the entire story, and asked her if she would please help me get the dress. She was empathetic and told me she would do whatever she could to help me get the dress, even though it was ONE month before my wedding. Thankfully, Terri Lynn Bridal sold me her sample dress, cleaned the dress for me (at no charge), and her amazing seamstress made my dress perfect for my wedding day!

I found Terri Lynn Bridal through Yelp reviews and Wedding Wire and checked it out on a whim after shopping in a few stores my friends recommended. I loved nearly every dress I tried here, the dresses were at a comfortable price point, and I ended up buying a beautiful strapless silk Legends by Ramona Keveza gown. Lana did an excellent job with alterations and when I fell in love with a rather pricey veil, they happily gave me a 50% discount. I'm so happy because it really pulled everything together. I received so many compliments on both the dress and veil, I can't wait to see our professional photos.

This shop appears charming with a small but stellar selection of dresses but beware of questionable practices. I bought my dress here and received a beautiful dress and the alternations were done but it was not worth the aggravation.

The salesperson (she told me she wasn't Terri but I never saw another salesperson and speaking to "Terri" on the phone sounded like I was speaking to the same woman.) ran hot and cold. She was kind sometimes and rude and discourteous other times. I was told I should pay for my flat fee dress alteration in cash. The salesperson told me I would come in after my dress came in to pick my veil and the salesperson wrote on my card I was to get a free veil with my purchase. This was something I had to remind them of once the time came and they started to rattle off veil prices. Once it was too late for me to order a veil anywhere else it turned out that there was only one free veil and they would not credit it's value towards the veil I picked. When I expressed this was not clearly communicated to me I was curtly told that I had remembered incorrectly; which reading other reviewer's experiences it seems most of Terri Lynn Bridal clientele have been told they have faulty memories.

Instead of the usual 2 -3 fitting appointments I had five. I believe these extra appointments were needed because of a significant language barrier between myself and the seamstress. Each time I went in something was done incorrectly or not at all. I spoke to the salesperson about this and was told there was not language issue and maybe the problem was with me. The salesperson came to the next fitting where I witnessed her yell in a very unprofessional manner at the seamstress when she did not understand her.

Ultimately, my dress was done one week before my wedding. The alterations fee was waived due to all the issues but I literally cried when I saw the quality. The bottom of the lace dress was unevenly chopped and reattached to cut the length instead of doing so at the waist seam. Also, I found several holes in the lace which I had to tell my photographer to shoot around when he was taking detail shots of my dress.

Overall, I cannot recommend this vendor.

I tried on 75 dresses at 12 different places so I can very confidently say that Terri Lynn's is one of the best bridal boutiques in the area. They carry a smaller amount of dresses but each one is exquisitely beautiful. (I feel this preferable to a larger place that carries a ton of dresses that are just average or ridiculously expensive.) What's also different about Terri Lynn's is that she only books one appointment at a time so you have her full attention. I'm thankful they book this way because I had a very specific vision in my head of what I wanted, but when I tried on these types of dresses, nothing was working. So she sized up my body type and suggested I try on a dress that was a bit different, and it was PERFECT! It was her experience and attentiveness to my needs that allowed me to find the perfect dress. After purchasing the dress they let me come in again and try it on (during their busy season) just to show my Mom who was visiting from out of town. The seamstress, Lana, is also outstanding! We did 3 fittings and by the end my dress fit like a glove -- she also sewed in cups, adjusted the sash and was just delightful to work with. I also liked that I went in twice before I purchased my dress and was never pressured to buy.

I tried on 75 dresses at 12 different places so I can very confidently say that Terri Lynn's is one of the best bridal boutiques in the area. They carry a smaller amount of dresses but each one is exquisitely beautiful. (I feel this preferable to a larger place that carries a ton of dresses that are just average or ridiculously expensive.) What's also different about Terri Lynn's is that she only books one appointment at a time so you have her full attention. I'm thankful they book this way because I had a very specific vision in my head of what I wanted, but when I tried on these types of dresses, nothing was working. So she sized up my body type and suggested I try on a dress that was a bit different, and it was PERFECT! It was her experience and attentiveness to my needs that allowed me to find the perfect dress. After purchasing the dress they let me come in again and try it on (during their busy season) just to show my Mom who was visiting from out of town. The seamstress, Lana, is also outstanding! We did 3 fittings and by the end my dress fit like a glove -- she also sewed in cups, adjusted the sash and was just delightful to work with. I also liked that I went in twice before I purchased my dress and was never pressured to buy. Overall it was a low-stress and truly enjoyable experience thanks to the wonderful ladies at Terry Lynn's. Read less

Terri Lynn has beautiful, stylish dresses - unlike any I saw at the 6 other bridal shops I went to - in an affordable range - from about $2000. While not a huge selection, they offerings were unique, included a range of styles and looked as expesive as those I saw in the $7,000-$10,000 range. After a few slight bumps in the process - a few emails that took a while to get a response to and showing up for my first fitting to find the shop closed (the seamstress had gotten stuck in bad traffic) it was smooth sailing. It's a very personal shop as Terri only takes one appt at a time and she personally oversaw my final fittings, making slight adjustments like to the ribbon sash, which helped perfect the fit and look. The personal touch can't be beat - that combined with the high quality selection and affordable cost makes this a go-to place.

Terri Lynn Bridal is wonderful!!! I had an extremely positive experience finding my dress here. I love that it is a smaller boutique. It was so nice to have the shop to ourselves (me, my mom & sister, and the stylist)--quiet, intimate, relaxing, low key. Their selection is EXCELLENT for being a smaller shop--an amazing range of all types of dresses. I found the perfect dress for me. Terri Lynn was so gracious in letting me try it on multiple times before 100% committing, and they were very accommodating with the fittings--two in one week because I was an out of town bride. LOVE Terri Lynn!!!

I had the best experience at Terri Lynn Bridal. From my very first visit until my last fitting, I received such amazing service. Terri Lynn was so easy to get in touch with and more than a pleasure to work with. Terri Lynn and the entire staff were extremely friendly, polite, helpful and just great to be around. Without a doubt, Terri Lynn went above and beyond to help me get everything I need - earrings, hair, anything I needed help with Terri Lynn was there! The store is smaller than some of the other shops around, and by appt only but I think that made my experience even better. The one on one attention was exactly what I needed and wanted! I loved EVERYTHING about my experience with Terri Lynn and can't thank the staff enough for all their help and support!

I absolutely loved my Romona Keveza dress from Terri Lynn Bridal. Although Terri Lynn has a smaller selection of dresses, I found that their dresses were prettier and more affordable than the dresses I found at the other four stores I went to. I loved many of the dresses at this salon and had a clear favorite that I bought on my second trip to the store. My dress was delayed being shipped to the store that got me a bit nervous, but the store's owner kept in contact with me to make sure I knew the status of my dress. It ended up coming in a couple months before the wedding which was plenty of time to do alterations. Lana did a great job with alterations and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend checking out their dresses!

As someone mentioned in a previous review, the service at Terri Lynn Bridal could use some work. When I went to buy my dress, I mentioned to the saleswoman that I had seen the same dress somewhere else for less money, and she snapped quickly back "I don't negotiate" in a very snippy and unprofessional tone. I bought my dress there anyway, and when I went to schedule my dress fittings I had additional problems with customer service. The salesperson was fighting with me over the appropriate schedule for my dress fittings. I was going to be traveling a lot for work and I wanted to schedule my fitting sooner than she thought was necessary, and she fought me tooth and nail about it. She was rude and nasty and tried to blame me for everything! What ever happened to the customer being right?!?!

However, despite the poor customer service, I still really like the shop. They had a great selection of dresses at great prices. I bought my dream dress here and was completely satisfied with the dress. I had the alterations done by their seamstress, Svetlana, and she did an amazing job and the dress fit like a glove. I also ordered my veil from them and was satisfied with that as well (although they gave me a bit of a hard time about that as well). In sum, despite the attitudes of the salespeople, they sell really beautiful dresses.

It is hard to be negative here as my dress was gorgeous and people told me it was perfect on me, but there were some issues. When signing the contract and paying the first half of the dollar amt I was told I would be notified before they charged my credit card for the second half of the dress when it arrived into their store. Well the dress arrived a week earlier than expected and my credit card was charged without them ever telling me. When I called to discuss this I was told that I was wrong b/c I had signed the contract and they had notified me of this policy. I said I was never notified and rechecked my email and asked them to resend me the email they had sent me to tell me the dress had arrived. When I received that email I noticed she had not sent it to me the first time, but had sent it to herself. An easy mistake, but the professional thing to do here would have been to admit they were wrong and apologize, not blame me for it. It was something very minor, but when your wedding dress is involved emotions obviously run high. Great dress and price, but I think some stores forget this is your wedding, the best day of your life, not a business deal!

I purchased my bridal gown, veil, and bridesmaids dresses at Terri Lynn Bridal. I love that she only does one appointment at a time, because it gives you free range to try on any dress in the store. During my initial shopping I went to a bunch of stores in the area, and I felt that Terri had the best selection. I fell in love with a Marisa dress and it was just perfect for my wedding day. For bridesmaids dresses we chose some from the Vineyard line that Terri carries. I highly recommend Terri Lynn Bridal to brides in the DC area.

Terri was exceptional to work with! I came to her two months before my wedding. While other vendors told me I had to buy a dress off the rack, Terri was able to provide an entire collection of new dresses that could be made and delivered prior to our wedding day. My dress came in two weeks early and Terri was able to provide flawless alterations. She is honest and knowledgable as to what will and will not look good and offers her suggestions in a non-imposing manner. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her. The botique is beautiful!

I went to many bridal shops in the area, but Terri's is by far the best one. Not only is her shop adorable but it also has a fantastic selection of dresses, and Terri is a pleasure to work with. The only issue I had was with my alterations, the top of my dress ended up a little bit too tight and the hook on my zipper ended up tearing off half way through the reception and my mother had to sew it back on.

I can not say enough good things about Terri Lynn Bridal! The store was my 3rd stop in trying on dresses and although the store is small, I probably tried on every dress she has. This one dress that I had brushed right past, Terri reccommended and it was THE ONE. After all of the back and forth and visiting the dress with a few different people, she pointed out that that was the only dress that I put on and said "I love it!" I was sold! The dress fit perfectly and she was super accomodating with getting the dress ready before the big day.

I love Terri Lynn Bridal!!

I bought both my wedding dress and my five bridesmaid's dresses from Terri Lynn Bridal. This boutique is amazing - it doesn't have a huge collection of dresses, but Terri has an amazing eye and almost every dress was a contender for me. I ended up buying my dream dress for 50% off because I bought the floor sample, which was in picture perfect condition. Terri provided amazing service and personalized attention. Each time I went to the shop (for dress shopping, alterations, etc.) I received one-on-one service from Terri. She really knows her stuff, from the different ways to bustle a dress to the beading and fabric details of each gown.

We did encounter one hiccup, which was pretty significant. Four of my five bridesmaids didn't fit into their dresses. Terri orders true-to-size, which really cuts down on alteration costs. However, I believe the bridesmaid dress sizing table for the particular Vineyard Collection dresses we selected was slightly off because they were definitely small - significantly so on my two sisters. We weren't impressed with the alterations made by Maria, Terri Lynn's main seamstress. It came down to using Terri's alternative seamstress, Svetlana, the week of the wedding. Svetlana worked last-minute magic and all the bridesmaids ended up looking wonderful. And Terri was extremely helpful in solving the problem - she spent much of her personal time, even during off-store hours, to make sure the bridesmaid dresses were right.

Finally, I received so many compliments on my wedding dress! Even with the bridesmaid dress fit issues, I recommend this salon. Just make sure you're comfortable with the size that's ordered for you and consider using Svetlana as your seamstress.

Terri Lynn Bridal is Washington, DC's best kept secret when it comes to wedding dresses. Her boutique is cozy and charming, and it's filled with one of the most unique and stunning collections in town. What's best, is that Terri somehow combines gorgeous, current dresses with insanely reasonable price points, and you don't have to dig through musty plastic bags!

Terri also has a remarkable eye. She convinced me to try on a dress that I had no interest in, and I fell in love with it! I felt absolutely gorgeous (and comfortable!) in my Cymbeline Paris dress, and guests, photographers and friends said it was one of the most stunning dresses they'd ever seen. My only regret is that I only get to have one wedding, because I will really miss working with Terri! And the dresses...oh, the dresses....

If there's one vendor I could recommend, it's Terri Lynn Bridal!!! Terri is so amazing... I found my dream dress at her store, and it was a bonus that I was able to work with Terri. She's so pleasant that I hope that even after my wedding we'll remain friends. The store is so cute and has a great selection of dresses and veils. Terri made dress shopping completely fun - not stressful at all, like some of the larger stores I visited. I also knew that, as a small business owner, Terri would do anything to make me happy and thrilled with my dress. The alterations done at Terri Lynn Bridal (by Anytime Alterations/Maria Luz) were absolutely perfect. Terri carries a unique mix of gowns - she's the only store carrying Justina Mccaffrey (my dress designer) in the area plus a great mix of other brands.

I was not the easiest bride to work with... I second guessed myself tons and shopped around (six different stores!!). Terri completely understood the need to shop around - even making recommendations - and there was no pressure to buy from her. Terri and her store are wonderful - a definite must-try for brides searching for "the one."

I highly recommend this shop!

She stayed on top of when my dress would be delivered, made sure I got my fittings taken care of, etc. She even took photos of me in the different gowns and emailed them to me to help me make a decision. I highly recommend this shop! Read less

Terri was amazing and so kind!
She is one of the reasons that my wedding was perfect. When I found the perfect dress she worked with me to meet me at her shop when I was available to drive up. She went out of her way and was so patient.

Terrilynn is one of the most delightful, radiant, kind people you'll ever meet, and she loves what she does. Her store is elegant, calming, sophisticated, with a boutique feel and personalized service, so the whole shopping experience was pleasant and fun. The dresses are gorgeous. The first day I visited her store, I immediately wanted this store to be part of my wedding memories and experience, and am so glad I bought my dress and bridesmaid and flower girl dresses there. Terrilynn really went the extra mile--and then some!-- for my whole wedding party, accommodating my short engagement and my very complicated decision process, and was extraordinarily gracious at every turn. She also has a great sense of style, and her recommendations helped pull my whole look together. I will always be grateful to Terrilynn helping me get to my wedding day in style, and creating a wonderful experience along the way. You definitely should visit her store--you'll love every minute of it!!

Good location
Nice selection
Great service
Fun and kind management

I liked this place better than two other wedding boutiques I checked out downtown.

Also, they are the only wedding retailor in the area (that I could find) that carried the Justina McCaffery gown I wanted to check out. In the end, I did not buy my dress here because I was able to get the exact same 2008 gown preowned at a very low price. Even though I bought the preowned JM dress, I still planned to buy the gown new since I was worried the preowned dress would be too short. Upon realizing that the preowned dress could be lengthened, I decided to not buy my gown new. However, if this was not the case, I would have definitely bought my gown from this retailor.
