As I walked in I thought I wouldn't find anything but this is where I found my dress. The staff was very helpful as I didn't have an appointment but still allowed me to try on dresses.

The shop here is tiny, but the service was great - Beverly was amazing and so accommodating to my mother and I. The only drawbacks are that they really only do alterations on Tuesday & Thursday evenings. This was the only shop in the area that I found who carried the dress I wanted to try on, which ended up being the one. The only negative thing I would have to say about the shop is that the night before my wedding I tried on my dress and one of my maid of honors and I found 3 pins in my dress from the alterations. The pin ended up cutting my arm and drawing blood - thankfully I did not get any blood on my dress, but it was visibly red and I had to cover it up with makeup. The day of my wedding we took my bustle out and found 2 more pins still in my dress, therefore leaving a total of 5 pins left in my dress. Aside from the pins left in my dress, this shop was great!

This salon is a hidden gem, and Beverly is amazing! And I got so many compliments from wedding guests on the dress and the veil!

This was the first salon that I went to, so I had no idea what to expect. When I walked in, the salon didn't look very big, so in my wedding-planning rush, I nearly left to go in search of a larger place. I am so glad that I didn't! Beverly pulled out a few dresses for me to try on, and I loved every single one of them. The third dress that she had me try on was THE dress! I went to half a dozen or more other larger salons and more expensive salons, and tried on dozens of dresses, but I kept coming back to THE dress and to the wonderful people at the Bridal Closet.

Beverly knew exactly what would fit my look and personality, and was so amazingly warm with me and my mom, that by the time of the wedding, we felt like she was a good family friend. I did not budget that much time for ordering and receiving the dress, and Beverly was able to get it to me with time to spare. She worked with us on every detail and provided excellent advice throughout the process. And I felt like the staff at the Bridal Closet jumped through hoops to help me and genuinely cared about the success of the wedding.

The veil that Beverly happened to put on me when I was in the store for the first time trying on THE dress also worked out perfectly - special-ordered in the length that we thought worked best with the dress.

I recommended the place to a friend of mine, and she ended up getting her dress at this salon as well.

Wonderful, wonderful place for getting your dress and accessories (I might go elsewhere for alterations).

I did not buy my bridal gown here; however I did have my dress altered here. The cost of the alterations were extremely expensive; I would reccommend going somewhere else. I did order the mother of the bride dress and bridesmaid dresses here. Mother of the bride dress was great; but needed some inspecting as the material on the dress was sewn incorrectly in some spots (had to pay extra for alterations) and the bridesmaid dresses were beautiful but some of the girl's measurements were incorrect. One girl's dress was way way too big and they ordered the wrong size; be sure to double check sizes when they place orders. I ordered my headpiece here as well which turned out beautiful.

I brought my dress there for alterations and everything went great until I went back two weeks later for the fitting. They did not hem the back of my dress but had shortened the front and sides tremendously so it looked funny. My dress did not have a train it had layers of chiffon that should have been altered equally all the way around the dress. I called the next day to see what could be done and the store manager was extraordinarily rude to me. She told me I could pay them to fix it after I had already paid them $260 and they didn't complete the work. She also told me I shouldn't have bought a dress for someone who was 5'9" when I'm only 5'2". She said my only other option was to deal with it. A horrible experience, and something not needed two weeks before your wedding.

I found Alfred Sung dresses online and called The Bridal Closet in Vienna Virginia and they were able to order the dresses without me going to the shop. Each girl was able to call in their measurements and they even shipped a few dresses out of state straight to their homes. I had to order two dresses at the last minute and they were able to get them in the same time as the other dresses arrived!

Great place to work with and very professional! Pleasure to work with and would recommend to anyone!

The Bridal Closet is a small, homely place that I went to get my bridesmaid dresses. I was able to order them all at the same time and when they came in, the bridesmaids were able to get them fitted right there.
