I found the perfect wedding dress at TLC Boutique and will also be looking for bridesmaids dresses here. From the moment I called to schedule an appt, I felt like they were enthusiastic about helping me. When I went in for my appt, everyone was very nice and welcoming. My consultant, Suzy, was fabulous and I loved every minute with her. She really listened to my wants and was very helpful with giving her own advice. I felt very special that day and like a one of a kind bride. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone!

I said "yes" to dress, went home...looked at the pictures and called first thing the next morning and asked them to hold off on the order! I went back in and tried on another dress which I ended up getting! Even though I was a huge pain Jay Jay was absolutely wonderful working with me and made the process a lot of fun! Thanks!

The entire staff at TLC Bridal was absolutely outstanding! I was so nervous about looking for dresses and they provided a relaxing and low stress experience where I found the dress of my dreams. Every staff member I talked to knew SO MUCH about wedding dresses as far as fit, look, comfort, etc. They were extremely willing to work in a budget and really listened to what I wanted and pulled things that kept getting better and better. I feel like I got an absolutely unbelievable dress in exactly my budget range with little to no stress at all. Couldn't have asked for better, thanks ladies!!

TLC is a fabulous boutique located in downtown Frederick. The staff were welcoming, honest and helpful. I was the only bride at the shop on an early Saturday morning and I could not have asked for better service! The selection of dresses was huge and the staff listened to my concerns/wants/needs. Overall it was a great experience and I was so happy to say YES to the dress with the staff @ TLC!

I had the best experience I could ask for in finding my wedding gown at TLC! The staff was sooo helpful. JayJay listened to all my ideas, and then brought her own expertise to the table. Before I knew it, I had tried on at least 10-15 dresses, narrowed my favorites down, and said yes to one of them! I felt completely comfortable and important throughout the whole appointment, thanks to all their attention to detail (when I got there, they had a chalkboard welcome sign with my name on it waiting for me!). This was a dream-come-true dress shopping experience for me!

I had went to several bridal boutiques before TLC, and once I went to TLC, I knew I just had to purchase my dress here. I am a young bride and felt that the other places didn't take me seriously. TLC treated me like any other bride. Their customer service is phenomenal and they really focus on only you while you're there. There's no distractions and they listen to exactly what you want and try to find the perfect match. I walked in thinking I wanted a mermaid gown and I walked out with a gorgeous ball gown. I cannot wait to wear it in February!

My experience at TLC bridal boutique exceeded my expectations. I had never tried on wedding dresses and wasn't expecting to find a dress that day. The shop was so accommodating and all of the women were so friendly and helpful. I found my dress (it was the first one I tried on) and they opened some sparkling wine to celebrate! Suzi was wonderful with my appointment, she pin pointed exactly what I was looking for while making sure my mom and mother-in-law enjoyed themselves as well. I hadn't picked a wedding venue yet, we had a bad experience visiting the venue our hearts were set on. The ladies at the shop gave us so many places to check out, their highest recommendation was the Antrim Inn 1844. We went to check out the Antrim that same afternoon and booked our wedding there. I couldn't be more thankful to all the ladies at TLC bridal boutique, especially Suzi, she made my experience so memorable!

TLC Bridal Boutique is hands down AMAZING! I was nervous coming into the store because I really wanted to find “the dress” and since I am the first in child in my family to get married, I did not know how the whole process worked. The second I walked in the door I felt relief and extremely comfortable. Everyone in the store jumped right in to help my find “the dress”. I tried on 5 dresses, once I put the 5th one on….I knew it was “the one”. This was the ONLY store I went to and words cannot describe how happy and amazed I am. The dress is PERFECT and I cannot wait for my fiancé to see me in it! Please visit this store and I know you will be extremely happy and pleased! Thank you again so much to the TLC team. Smiles all around!!!!

My experience at TLC was nothing short of perfection. Working with JayJay was so much fun, she took the time to pick out so many different styles of dresses until I found exactly what I wanted, and made me feel so relaxed, comfortable, and excited all at the same time! I would recommend TLC to any soon-to-be brides searching for the perfect dress. They also have a great selection of bridesmaid and mother-of-the bride/groom dresses too!

TLC Bridal Boutique was the first bridal shop I visited when shopping for the perfect wedding dress. I felt very comfortable and welcomed when I arrived. I went in with the expectation that I would not find my dress that day. It came down to one of the last dresses I tried on that absolutely won my heart. I could tell by the reaction from my mom, soon to be mother in law and matron of honor, that it was ‘the one’. I loved working with Terry and her crew. They were honest, kind and those are two qualities that are extremely important to me. I highly recommend this shop to any bride-to-be's, mom's and bridesmaids.

The ladies of TLC Bridal Boutique are fantastic at making the experience of shopping for your wedding dress everything you ever dreamed of. When I came in for my appointment last Fall, I made a slight mistake -- I didn't warn them that I'd be bringing my dad with me, which is kind of important to mention when you have a bunch of women running around getting dressed/undressed! He was going through treatment for melanoma at the time, and I really needed to have him there with me. Despite my lack of warning, they accommodated us with the consent of the other bride trying on dresses that morning and my dad was able to be part of my experience.

The staff are so friendly and fun to work with, and they really know what they are doing. I ended up having to think about my decision for a few days but I quickly came back a few weeks later to purchase my wedding dress. I loved working with their staff so much that my mom and I went back to pick out her dress for the big day. If my bridesmaids weren't spread across the country, I would have brought them back too!

It was a pleasure working with Terry, Sue, JayJay and all of the ladies at TLC Bridal Boutique. They made my dress shopping experience stress free and easy. I found my Casablanca dress here and another place, but bought it from here because of the great customer service. My lady, Sue, was great! She did a fabulous job figuring out what I wanted and putting me in exactly what I was looking for in my wedding dress. The store is pretty small so it was the perfect shopping experience because they truly focus on you while you're there. This was the first place I went, and the dress I ultimately selected was the first dress I tried on. Then I proceeded to go to other stores and tried it on one more time and knew it was "The One"! TLC even worked with me on the price, as the second store was slightly cheaper. I live in Arlington, VA and the trip to TLC was well worth it. I can't wait to return once my dress is in!

Wonderful staff that are extremely friendly. Having gone to quite a few other bridal gown shops, they had the best process for trying on dresses that allowed your friends/family to be involved but allowed for the bride's privacy while trying on the dresses. A bigger selection of dresses than I expected for a 'smaller' boutique. I found the perfect dress here and they even matched the price (I had found the same dress for $52 cheaper at another boutique). Even if they hadn't price-matched, I would have bought the dress here for the service.

I was looking for the dreaded mother of the bride dress... and I just had the best dress shopping experience of my life! Susie was an amazing salesperson. She listened to me and patiently helped me figure out exactly what I was looking for. The variety to choose from was tremendous, there was no pressure to settle for something I didn't like, and in the end I have a dress I will feel amazing in at my daughter's wedding. Thank you TLC Bridal Boutique!!!

I would highly recommend TLC Bridal Boutique for brides looking for a wedding gown. I had an appointment with Suzi, and she did a really good job of explaining the process and guiding me to the right dress. I went in with some ideas and pictures of what I was interested in. With each gown I tried on, she asked me questions about what I liked and didn't like, and she picked the next dress according to my thoughts. By the time we got to the right dress, it was easy for me to tell that it was the right one. We tried on a few others, but just kept coming back to that one. I was a little nervous going into it that it might be stressful, but they helped to keep it a relaxed and pleasant experience. Their prices are very reasonable, and they did a good job explaining the process of ordering and making alterations. I'm looking forward to going back to try on my dress when it arrives.

I am a very curvy bride who tried a couple of other boutiques before calling TLC Bridal Boutique. When I called to make my appointment, I had all of my concerns and questions answered. When I got to TLC, my consultant, Susie was immediately welcoming and helped me figure out what type of dress I was looking for. For a girl who initially said no to strapless and tulle, I am a girl who fell in LOVE with my dress (yes - strapless and tulle). Susie and Jay Jay both helped me get the measurements for MY dress and made the whole process an amazing experience. These ladies even went as far as calling the designer to be sure that my dress could be built to fit my curvy curves. I want to say THANK YOU to Susie, Jay Jay and Terry for making my experience such a remarkable one. I look forward to my fittings and seeing my dress when it comes it (built just for me). You are an amazing group of women who know how to make the bridal dress shopping experience a fantastic one.

We had such a great day at TLC Bridal. Everyone was so helpful and made the day truly special. I showed Suzi a dress that I really liked from a different designer and she found a dress that was similar (but even more beautiful) than the one I originally brought to her. The first dress was a hit but we tried on others just to be sure! I was worried that dress shopping might be overwhelming but TLC was so organized, relaxed and personal that I felt like I was shopping with extra friends! I would highly recommend TLC Bridal Inc to any bride!

Tlc was a great first experience of dress shopping. The staff was very quick to respond to emails and very happy to help pencil me in for an appointment. The overall experience in the boutique was fabulous! Everyone was so friendly, patient and helped make the day special for me. I was so happy to have found the dress on the first shot and so glad I decided to visit Tlc! I have even already scheduled my mother of the bride and bridesmaid dress appointment! Can't wait to go back!

Terry and her team were amazing. I was welcomed and taken care from the moment I walked in the door. Considering my wedding is a same-sex marriage, I'm never sure how vendors will react. This wasn't even an issue and they loved my fiancé for setting up my appointment as a surprise. I found the dress of my dreams and had a great time doing so. They gave me information on cleaners and the seamstress they use on top of superb service.

I absolutely loved my dress and I can say that it's all thanks to TLC Bridal Boutique. I had originally envisions wearing a ball gown, but ended up going with a beautiful Maggie Sottero lace- fitting dress.

Terri was great in helping me make my decision. She was open to what I wanted and knew what would work for me. However, she also choose a dress "just for fun" that she thought I should try on and it ended up being the one I chose. It is obvious that she has much experience working with women and knowing what looks good on each one. She didn't make me feel rushed, despite it being a busy Saturday morning and was very patient as I tried on several dresses before deciding which one I wanted.

Overall, this was a very good experience and I would recommend this place to any soon- to- be bride looking for a dress. The dress selections are great- all of them so beautiful and unique. Although the store is small, don't be fooled, they surprisingly have a large collection of dresses.

To all the future brides out there,

If you can go to TLC Bridal Boutique in Frederick, MD, then you should go.

All of the dresses are under $2000. That's not the best part though. The service is AMAZING. My consultant was Suzie and she was genuine, caring and so helpful. TLC was the first bridal boutique I went to and I fell in love. The boutique is small, but the wedding dress selection is the BEST quality. There were soo many gorgeous dresses. I ended up buying the first one I tried on. I loved it soo much.

Suzie gave me the best piece of advice. She said if I find myself trying to make other wedding dresses like one particular dress, then that dress is THE ONE!

I found the ONE at TLC.

I definitely recommend going there. I loved the experience I had.

THANK YOU TLC!!!

TLC Bridal was a dream to work with. I was working within a very tight time frame and ended up running into complications as far as the dresses I was picking and the availability for my wedding. These woman were not willing to let unfortunate circumstances stand in the way and were determined to find me, not only a gown that I would have in time, but my dream gown. They had visions, suggestions, and a lot of experience to make me feel completely comfortable and excited about my decision. I would absolutely recommend them as a first stop for anyone looking to purchase a wedding gown.

I drove to Frederick from Sterling, VA and it was worth it! I used their recommended tailor who was also fabulous! Check them out in your search for your gown, you won't regret it and it is worth the drive!

I had been all over the state looking for wedding gowns. Everywhere I went, I felt like no one listened to what I wanted or would show me 3 dresses and then tell me that I "must make a decision". Then, they would hound me with follow-up phone calls and emails. It became a really unhappy process for me.

I found TLC by complete accident. My fiance's family lived in Frederick. He had to take care of something with his Dad and in an effort to avoid his mother (more on her later), I went to this shop alone. I met with Terry and Jay Jay and knew instantly, this shop was different. Terry absolutely knows her stuff and, most importantly, really wants the bride to find what makes her happy and what is right for her. Terry knew how to hold the sample dress on me to show me where the waist would fit, where the bust would fit, etc. That visualization really helped me.

I left that day feeling optimistic. I came back 2 more times. At no time did I ever feel pressured or pushed to make a decision. Their prices were also better than many of the other shops I went to looking at the same designer. I ended up buying a dress I had tried on months earlier. It came in 5 months later (a month earlier than promised).

Terry also helped my mother and mother in law find their dresses. My mom was indecisive and went back several times. Again, Terry really helped her visualize how the dress would look on her and did not pressure her into getting a dress. She looked beautiful and was very happy with it!

Now, mother in law needs some background. She is 1. impossible to please and 2. will look for and find flaws/imperfections in everything. Terry was very patient with her (when any reasonable person would have lost it) and helped her find a dress.

I absolutely loved the experience working with them and would highly recommend this shop to anyone!

I purchased my wedding dress from TLC Bridal, and the whole experience was wonderful. I went to several bridal boutiques in the area before I came to TLC Bridal, and I was getting ready to give up because I could not find the style of dress that I wanted, and the customer service at the other bridal boutiques was not great. But then I came to TLC and everything was different! Their staff was amazing, attentive, extremely friendly and down to earth. They were not pushy at all, and allowed me to try on any dress that I wanted. (I went to another bridal boutique that wouldn't let me pick out the dresses myself, but instead their staff would only choose dresses based on the descriptions you gave them).
Their prices were also the best in the area! I would definitely recommend them to future brides, they will not disappoint you!

I loved working with the women at TLC. They listened to what I was looking for and tried to accommodate what I had in mind for in my wedding dress. They gave me an honest opinion when I tried on dresses and had great feedback based on your body shape and what would look best. I found my dress here! I couldn't believe how affordable their selection was and they had a huge variety to choose from. They also encourage taking pictures, which a lot of other boutiques did not allow. Trust me, if you want to be able to go through and try to remember all the dresses you tried on, pictures are extremely helpful. If you want great service and affordable prices for your wedding dress, go to TLC! They will take care of you.

My experience with TLC Bridal was nothing short of spectacular! There is not enough room to describe everything they did for me. We chose a short engagement & I went to TLC because of their great reviews. They have a huge selection of the most beautiful gowns & the latest styles. It didn't take me long to find my dream dress & I bought it a month before my wedding! The only way I could do that was because the owner, Terry, knew a fabulous seamstress who could alter it quickly (it was 2 sizes too big). I also bought my headpiece at TLC & got my hair and nails done on my wedding day at places Terry suggested. Terry and her staff are truly experts in pulling the whole look together and mine came together perfectly. I never felt pressured to buy anything like other shops. I didn't have any family in town for my wedding & Terry offered to help me get ready to make sure I wasn't alone. She even showed up 45 minutes before my only bridesmaid! She helped me get ready, put my headpiece on & even sewed the straps of my dress at the last minute because they were still slipping. She was truly a mom to me. I never felt more beautiful in my life! When I first got engaged I was so excited to visit venues, bridal shops, bakeries, florists, etc. because I thought it would be a great experience, people would go out of their way to make sure we were happy & the customer service would be wonderful. I quickly found out that that's not the case. It seemed people cared more about making a sale and I often left disappointed. I didn't think my expectations were unrealistic, but none of them were completely met EXCEPT for at TLC. I can't thank them enough for all they did for me. Now that the wedding is over, I'm sad I won't be able to visit them like I did before. Thank you Terry & all of the TLC staff for all you did for me. I'll never ever forget it!

Choosing TLC was the best decision I ever made! Everyone there was super nice, super flexible with my schedule and so attentive! I like the fact that they only schedule 2 people per time slot so all their attention is on you. In addition, all of their dresses are $2k and under, which fit perfectly into my budget!

Surpasses all other bridal store! The moment you walk in to TLC they make you feel like a princess. You are greeted with your name on the Welcome chalkboard, friendly staff, and a tastey, relaxing wine spritzer. They listen to your ideas and work with any budget. The dressing rooms are spacious and divided by luxorious curtains. There is usually only one other appointment going on at the same time as yours, but you barely know they are there. The focus is on the bride and finding THE dress.

A pampered, yet affordable experience!

I can't say enough good things about TLC Bridal Boutique. When I arrived for my schedule appointment, my name was on their chalkboard as a welcome and the employees quickly rushed to get my mom, sister, and I comfortable and set up with champagne.

They truly listened to my likes and dislikes about each dress I tried on and were determined to get it perfect. When I had it narrowed down to two choices, leaning towards what would be my wedding dress, they insisted I slept on it, looked elsewhere, and really made sure that was the one I wanted.

I came back the very next day to the same welcome and champagne, tried on the dresses, and bought my wedding dress. The amount of genuine compliments they showered me with made me feel confident in my purchase and like a million bucks, like every bride should feel.

The ladies that work there have the best personalities and are beyond helpful! Thank you all - I can't tell you the amount of compliments I received on my wedding day!

We have been to at least 10 bridal salons in many different cities, so I have have a large basis of comparison. These ladies rock! Such comfortable and personal service. Very helpful and genuine. We could have spent the whole day there. We never felt pressured or rushed. Even though we did not purchase a dress from them (we chose a designer they do not carry) I felt compelled to write this. And I do not write reviews - ever! Give these girls a chance; you won't be sorry!

The staff at TLC was amazing. During the appointment, they focus just on you 100%. My daughter described the type of dress she was looking for and price range, and Terry, the owner, picked out a dress that fit the description perfectly. Suzi, JayJay, and Suzanne were awesome to work with, and it was just so much fun every time we visited the boutique. Even though she tried on many dresses at TLC and elsewhere, she came back for that first dress she tried on – it was just as she imagined.

From the first appointment about a year ago, to the last, TLC just took care of everything, offering great advice along the way. They make you feel like you are their only customer. We also got the bridesmaids dresses at TLC and they took care of all the ordering. We would definitely recommend TLC.

TLC is the first bridal boutique I went to and the best one by far. I was only in town for a short time, and hadn't thought to make an appointment. Well, on a whim I e-mailed TLC (and a bunch of other places) very late at night to see if *maybe* they might have an appointment available the next day and low and behold, Terry e-mailed me right back! I went in the next day and loved that there were only two brides in there at one time, and that you had the full attention of one, sometimes two or even three associates! Sue provided me with a slip and a longline bra to wear. (Can you believe that they are the only store that offered me these for the try-on?!) She also helped me get into and out of each dress I tried on, and fitted them to me with clips in the back, adjusting my train and skirt each time in front of the three-way mirror. If the dress seemed to lack something, she would bring me different sashes to try, or even add a veil to let me see the whole "look." There was a sitting area for my mom to watch as I showed her each one. Sue had no problem with me trying on as many dresses as I wanted to, or trying them on more than once. Terry, JayJay, and Suzi were also very helpful and sweet both in person and via e-mail. When I went back home to NC, I visited 2 other bridal stores (1 discounter, 1 full-service boutique). The discounter was a nightmare (completely DIY) and the other full-service boutique did not have the full-service that TLC did! Although I found the same dress I wanted for a cheaper price at another store, Terry price-matched it for me, no questions asked. TLC has beautiful dresses in MANY price ranges. Overall, I was more than satisfied with my experience with them.

They were absolutely amazing! I am so glad I found them through wedding wire because I was giving up hope for finding the dress! TLC was the third shop I came to search for dresses and I tried a good amount of different styles. However, it did take me a long time to find one that day lol. My consultant was so understanding and patient. When it was time to try on the final dress it was the one that I fell in love with! Tears of joy overwhelmed me and my mother couldnt hold them either.

The shop itself is located in downtown Frederick and it is a really cute boutique. They had a large selection of different type of gowns so searching for the one will be overwhelming but it is a good thing right? It is about a 30minute drive for me but that is ok because they are so worth it!

I was SO pleased with TLC bridal. They were incredibly helpful and gave me the attention and advice I needed without being pushy. They worked with my short timeline and maybe sure I would have the perfect dress in time for the wedding. TLC was a far drive for me since I live out in Virginia, but it was well worth the time and the effort to know I was in good hands.

I absolutely love this shop! Everyone is extremely accomodating and so pleasant to work with! I went there to look for my wedding dress and found the one of my dreams! I had brought a few pictures to show Susie, and right away she told me she had the perfect dress for me and was waiting for someone to try it on. She was so right! If I could, I would wear it everyday! It was absolutley the dress for me and I felt like a disney princess. I was also able to find my beautiful jewelry there and a belt to go with my dress with the help of JJ and Terri as well. Everyone at the wedding kept telling how much they loved the dress and how it was so me! I want every bride out there to go to TLC and find the dress of their dreams too!! Make sure to bring your best girl friends and your mom because you will have a blast with these ladies!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

TLC Bridal Boutique made my experience as wonderful as I thought it would be. They staff was amazing. Terry assisted me with my wedding dress. After just speaking with her for a couple of minutes, she knew exactly what I was looking for. I purchased a dress I would have never picked out and it's beautiful. Terry made me look like a princess, adding the most perfect veil and jewelry to match my dress. The whole staff was friendly and outgoing. My bridal party and myself had a great time. I wish I could do it all over again. This is an experience I will never forget.
Suzi and Michelle assisted us with the bridesmaids dresses. They were both great. We selected my bridesmaids dresses and we couldn't have done it without them. The boutique, the staff and the overall experience was amazing.

I wasn't finding many dresses I liked at other places. When I went to TLC I told them what I was looking for and what I did not want. The ladies were great at only showing me things that fit my criteria. Within an hour during my first visit to TLC I found 3 dresses I really liked. I took a few weeks to think about it and then came back with my friends to pick one. It was a relatively easy shopping experience. My dress came in way before they said it would. My mom and one of my bridesmaids also bought their dresses there and got them plenty early for alterations. Overall it was a great experience and my dress got a ton of compliments.

I absolutely loved working with Suzy and the girls at TLC! TLC was recommended to me by a friend who got her wedding dress there, she said she had a great experience and the shop did not disappoint. I arrived with 2 friends in my bridal party and tried on probably 14 – 15 dresses. I found one that I really liked then Suzy brought over a Maggie Sottero gown and said try this one. Why not I trusted her professional eye and no regrets, I immediately loved it. I had that girl moment when I walked out of the dressing room and everyone just stopped and stared and I knew I found the one.

Other points worth noting, the first thing they asked me was my budget and they did not show me any dresses over that price. I went to another shop and found a dress that I loved which was thousands over my budget, what a let down! Also, the girls are honest; I put on a few dresses and got the “Oh No!” You know you can’t believe someone when they tell you every dress looks amazing, come on! These ladies run a great shop, loved my experience at TLC.

I visited several shops before finally finding TLC. I had specific expectations for my gown and also a strict budget. Susie and Sue were delightful to work with and they made sure I found exactly what I was looking for. They managed to help me find the perfect dress and still stay in my budget! The customer service is truly exceptional. I was given tons of helpful information and guidance about wedding concerns from honeymoon hotels to bouquets. Most importantly, I left with my dream dress, feeling well taken care of.

This was the first place that I tried on wedding dresses at with my maid of honor and future mother-in-law. It truly was an amazing experience. All of us just couldn't stop talking about how personal they were. Finding your wedding dress should be a happy experience that you will never forget and thanks to TLC I won't forget it. I tried on several dresses that I thought I liked and then the owner suggested I try an "out of the box" dress. Sure enough that was the dress. They never pressured me into buying anything. Since this was the first place I had gone to try on dresses I wanted to try other places and they were very understanding. I went to a few other shops and they just didnt give me the one on one "personal" feeling that I wanted. I tried on two dresses at the other shop and left..I wanted my wedding dress to come from TLC. Needless to say my dress and my girls dresses have been ordered through TLC. I would recommend them to anyone, YOU GUYS ROCK!! ~Megan~

TLC was the first Bridal Salon I visited and from the moment I walked in I felt welcome and at ease. It's not easy modeling in front of your Mom, Grandmother, and Future Mother-in-Law! My stylist was Sue and she was very friendly. I liked that I was able to walk around and pick styles off the rack, but also that Sue chose a few gowns she thought I might like. For me this was important because so often what you see on the hanger looks so much better on. After about four dresses I found "the one," but to be sure I still tried on a few more. Even though I loved the dress I wanted to sleep on it before making such a large purchase. There was no pressure from the staff, they were all encouraging and told me sincerely that they just wanted me to be happy with my decision. I ultimately came back a few days later and ordered "the one." TLC Bridal made the entire process easy and stress free, the way it should be. I can't wait to get my dress when it comes in the fall! Thank you TLC!

My stylist was Sue and she was very friendly. I liked that I was able to walk around and pick styles off the rack, but also that Sue chose a few gowns she thought I might like. For me this was important because so often what you see on the hanger looks so much better on. After about four dresses I found "the one," but to be sure I still tried on a few more. Even though I loved the dress I wanted to sleep on it before making such a large purchase. There was no pressure from the staff, they were all encouraging and told me sincerely that they just wanted me to be happy with my decision. I ultimately came back a few days later and ordered "the one." TLC Bridal made the entire process easy and stress free, the way it should be. I can't wait to get my dress when it comes in the fall! Thank you TLC! Read less

The ladies at this shop were SO helpful! They helped my best friend find her dress + bridesmaid dresses so when it was my turn, of course I went to them. I was dealing with a shortened time frame and I'm a plus size bride, so I thought it would be a challenge. But JJ made it fun and I walked out with my dress. I will recommend them to everyone!

I absolutely LOVED working with the woman at TLC to find my wedding dress! I tried a few other places first and nothing compared to the individualized attention and special service I received with TLC. I was the only person there for my appointment and they really listened to everything I told them about our venue, budget, and style that was right for me. Every single dress they chose for me fit me perfectly!! They worked with me through all of the details and questions that I had and really took care of me. It was a truly wonderfuuuul experience and I would recommend them to any bride looking for that perfect dress and a great experience! :)

I absolutely love TLC! They helped me find the most beautiful wedding gown! They also helped me every aspect along the way. I decided to add a belt/sash to my dress later on after my gown had already come in. The sash was scheduled to be shipped from the manufacturer less than 1 month before my wedding. They kept me updated on the whereabouts of the sash and they even delivered it to the tailor who was doing my alterations. Every employee at TLC (Terry, JayJay, Suzi, and Sue) is so nice and friendly! Thank you TLC :)

Highly recommend TLC Bridal! I was able to get a fantastic dress there for a reasonable price (less than $1K including shipping), and the best part of all, they have incredible customer service!!! I made my appointment with Suzie -- she's amazing! I was nervous about the dress shopping because I am a plus size bride, and shopping sometimes can be super frustrating because I can't always find something that is complimentary. Suzie worked with me the whole way through, she has a great eye for dress styles and figures, and I ended up going with the dress she went for first when she saw me and learned about what I wanted (lacy, romantic). She helped me find the perfect accessories (gorgeous belt) to make the dress completely my own.

I went to two other Bridal stores in the course of looking for my dress, both a David's Bridal and a store in Urbana...I did not have any where NEAR the great experience that I had a TLC. At TLC, I was treated like an appreciated customer, offered drinks, they took their time with me and gave me personal attention, and their store is cute and welcoming. At the other places I went to, I dealt with impatient store assistants who made me feel like I was burdening them , and who knew very little about styles/colors (for bridemaids dresses) and sometimes couldn't answer my questions at all. Don't waste your time with those vendors...go to TLC!!! Ask for Suzie!!!!

The only slight problem I had with TLC is that my dress ended up being ordering in a length that was too long. However, when the mistake was realized, the ladies at TLC told me it was 100% their mistake and they would resolve the issue immediately. They handled it completely and promptly, and my new dress came in earlier than expected. I wish all my wedding vendors were as great as TLC!

TLC helped me find the PERFECT wedding dress, and I felt SO beautiful on my wedding day! Thank you Suzie, and thank you TLC!! My favorite of all my vendors!!!

Terri Warfield, the owner of the TLC boutique, is a warm, caring, and talented person! She is able to help select the "perfect" dress for a bride, bridesmaid and mother of the bride due to her experience, attention to detail, and excellent taste! You can make a one hour private appointment with Terri where you receive her total attention. She is gifted in knowing how to choose the right accessories (veil, shoes, jewelry, wraps, etc.) that complement each gown. On the day we picked up the dresses, she made muffins and mimosa's for all of us so we could toast to the bride! Terri, along with her staff were delightful to work with and I would highly recommend TLC Boutique to any bride, bridesmaid and mother of the bride! The entire wedding party received so many outstanding complements on all of the dresses!

I had never tried on a wedding gown before so I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to find anything that I liked, but they have a great selection and the consultants are so friendly and knowledgeable. I ended up buying the very first dress that I tried on. We also ordered the bridesmaid's dresses and mother of the bride dress from TLC and everything turned out perfect!

TLC in Frederick is the kind of place where you can find a wedding dress on your own speed and time. I had the best assistant helping me narrow down all the different kinda of dresses to find the perfect one for me, and my budget! It was a special experience, being one of two brides trying on dresses and having that one on one attention with the assistant. They also have the most up to date styles so you know you don't have to go any where else.

After a chaotic trip to a store with absolutely no customer service, we walked into TLC and knew we were in good hands. These women were fabulous. I am not a bride that likes to try on a thousand dresses. They listened to what I envisioned, let me and my bridesmaids peruse the dresses and choose some to try on, and in the end the dress that they picked for me was the PERFECT dress for me. They made it SO easy. They were so wonderful to work with that I took my mom back there to pick out her dress and once again - they picked the dress that was perfect for her. They are so genuinely nice and pick dresses that look good on people and not just cost a fortune. They were VERY mindful of our budget. I should have started here to begin with. It was totally worth the 50 minute drive from VA.

Teri and her team at TLC are overall wonderful. I gave them a five review because even though hiccups happened Teri was RIGHT there to make sure I was happy. My dress turned out beautiful and was 1/6 of my budget! There location is in downtown Frederick which is a really cute spot and the store is very sweet looking. I love that I was able to support a small business with big business customer service. Every woman I worked with was very sweet and made me super excited. A couple things I will say... Make sure you do your own measurements too. A couple of my bridesmaids dresses were a little too far off to be considered coincidence. One of my bridesmaids was told to offer a dress that was about 4 sizes to big. When this happened Teri paid a large portion of her tailoring so that she only paid what was normal (like the length). When I found a stain on my mom's sample dress, Teri sent me a partial refund. Although they don't tailor, I LOVE the tailor they refer you too. My bridesmaid dresses were gorgeous, they all came in on time, after I got my dress tailored and steamed I was in love, and my mom and mother in law looked like gems. Definitely check out Teri's shop. She will take care of you.

I went to look at Bridal gowns in December 2011 for my upcoming wedding. The staff at TLC Bridal Boutique was very helpful, honest and professional. They helped me choose a gown that met every detail of what I told them I wanted. I'd visited a few shops and had gotten a feel for what looked good on me and also my budget. They showed me dressed that met all those factors and I found the most wonderful gown imaginable. It arrived last month and was every bit as perfect as the one I tried on. These people are awesome and I highly recommend them for brides on the hunt.

I visited TLC Bridal Boutique when I was on my last limb of wedding dress shopping. I had 3 horrible experiences before TLC and I was ready to give up. I entered TLC and was received with open arms. I felt comfortable and special just like a bride to be should feel! I was having issues since I am not a size 2 bride but they had dresses that fit even a size 10 bride. My representative Susan listened to what I wanted in a dress and picked out selections that met my criteria. After the second dress, she offered a dress that was a little out of my realm and I loved it!!! She was experienced and wonderful and knew how to make me feel special! The value was incredible! My mother and I didn't know what to expect to pay in price since it is a "boutique" but they assured us that no dress would be over $1,700.00 which was well within our budget. Once it was time to order my dress, Susan was sure to tell me how beautiful I would be even though I was a little self conscious about some parts of my body. After ordering my dress we had a little mix up of the date my dress would be in but after a couple phone calls my dress was overnighted and everything worked out well. In addition to my beautiful wedding dress, I order my bridesmaids dresses from there! Everyone was attentive and I was able to choose the dress before my bridesmaids came in so it wouldn't turn into a disaster. I can not stress to any bride to be how wonderful of a boutique this place is!

I highly recommend TLC Bridal to any bride out there shopping for the perfect wedding gown. The customer service is outstanding!! From the moment I walked into the shop, I felt like I was at home. TLC Bridal was the fourth or fifth bridal salon that I had visited, and I still didn't have a good idea about what kind of a dress was best for my body type. I was fortunate to have Terri, the owner of TLC Bridal, assist me when I first arrived. She was so much friendlier and more accommodating than the women at the other shops I had gone! She helped me find the best silhouette for my shape and from there, it was just a matter of finding the perfect gown. Truth be told, I actually did not find "the perfect dress" on my first visit to the shop. I found what I thought was "the one" at another store I visited later the same day, but I enjoyed working with Terri and the other women at TLC Bridal so much, that I returned to their store to actually order/purchase the dress, knowing that TLC carried the dress designer--even though I had initially tried on the dress at another location. When I returned at TLC Bridal, Terri suggested that I try on one other dress before I made my final decision. I did, and the rest is history. I totally fell in love with the dress Terri suggested--it was absolutely perfect for me, and I cannot wait for my wedding day to wear it! Thank you TLC Bridal for helping me find my dress--I truly believe I couldn't have done it without you!

They helped me with everything, from trying on a dress to offering recommendations. While they did not have the actual dress that I ended up picking, I chose to order it through TLC because their service was so outstanding above all the other stores I went to (which was a lot).

This really is a adorable, comfortable place to pick out your dream dress and have a great time doing it!!

All of the girls working at the boutique were very friendly. I love how they send out an email before your appointment telling you what to expect and how to prepare. They encourage you to have a budget and to not try on anything over your budget. I however, forced them to and I'm so glad I did. The dress I was eyeing was originally about $400 over my budget, but it fit perfectly and the owner of the shop told me that if I wanted that actual dress she would give me 25% off because it had been worn in a fashion show and was at a bridal show on a manican. The discount brought the dress down below my budget and I could not have been happier. I didn't need one alteration on my dress except to add a bustle. I was happy with their services that I took my girls back for their bridesmaids dresses and my mother, mother-in-law and grandmother too.

I actually stumbled across this store by coincidence. I had an appointment with a chain retailer in Baltimore, but cancelled it because of a hurricane in the area. My mom and I decided to look at some stores in the Frederick area, found this one and made an appointment. The staff was attentive and made me feel comfortable. They were more concerned about me finding a dress that looked great on me than actually making a sale. I didn't feel pressure to buy, and found my dream dress for less than I thought I would have to spend. The bridesmaid dresses were a little pricy, but good quality. My bridesmaids and mom actually got a bit of discount since I bought my dress there. I went with my bridesmaids to pick their dresses out, and they were as professional with them as they had been with me. I only wish they had more in the mother of the bride and groom section. Apparently, many mothers wait until the last minute to buy there dress meaning they have to buy off the rack which leaves others with less selection until replacements can be ordered. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend them to others.

I actually stumbled across this store by coincidence. I had an appointment with a chain retailer in Baltimore, but cancelled it because of a hurricane in the area. My mom and I decided to look at some stores in the Frederick area, found this one and made an appointment. The staff was attentive and made me feel comfortable. They were more concerned about me finding a dress that looked great on me than actually making a sale. I didn't feel pressure to buy, and found my dream dress for less than I thought I would have to spend. The bridesmaid dresses were a little pricy, but good quality.

The best thing about this shop was that it was right down the road from where I lived. Its small but a very cute shop and you'd almost miss it if not for the lavender door that leads you inside! Lucky for me it was the only shop I went to and the dress I picked, a beautiful Maggie Sottero gown, was the first one I tried on!

When I had walked in and told them what I was looking for and my price range, they told me they had just gotten a dress they thought I would like. I tried on about 5 other dresses but none of them were as lovely as the first dress. I even bought a veil there to match the dress and together they both looked so great! I also took my bridesmaids here to get their dresses since they carried Alfred Angelo and they ended up actually having the exact dress I liked online. So the girls tried it on and man, it was as perfect as I was hoping! We ordered them and they even came in way sooner than they had told us. The girls looked so great in the dressed too!

The day of the wedding, I got many a compliment on my gown. Everyone thought it looked absolutely fantastic on me, and I couldn't agree more. The ladies that work at the shop are really sweet and helpful, and just awesome to have worked with and gotten the dresses from. A super plus for me was that when you buy your gown there, if you are getting bridesmaids or moms dress there, you get a slight discount! Which was really fantastic.

I initially went to the shop with my mother-in-law to be because she had an appointment for her mother of the groom dress. Susie helped her and was super-super nice. She first asked me what my dress looked like. Embarrassed, I told her I hadn't quite gotten one yet and the wedding is 6 months away. The reason was I just couldn't find "the" dress within my budget (i found plenty in excess of my budget!). I also thought I wasn't going to find "the dress" since I thought my budget was on the low-side (many of the boutiques I went to made me feel that I had a low budget). This was not the case at all with TLC. Susie told me that my budget was more than enough and they had plenty of dresses that would meet my price point. Also they do not work off commission, and they didn't make me feel pressured in any way at all either. Susie asked me if I'd like her to ask the owner if they could fit me in for an appointment. I agreed, because I already felt very comfortable with them reassuring me that my budget wasn't too low and just maybe I could find something here (5th bridal shop I had been to). This is when I met Terry, the owner. She was so helpful, and she too reassured me that my budget was very possible. She didn't once try to push me over my budget, and was nothing but helpful and knowledgeable based on what I wanted which wasn't easy! Vintage/Modern/Romantic. After 10 dresses, Terry helped me FIND IT!! It's a beautiful silk Justin Alexander, beautiful lace detailing/applique, everything I wanted but didn't think I could get, but I DID! And my mother-in-law to be also got her mother of the groom dress!! :)
There was one minor thing that I felt like my dream dress was missing, which was lace along the bottom of the dress, and again, how great!! Terry said it was an aesthetic detail that their seamstress could add on, no problem!! DONE! I got my dream dress, and was even under budget! Now i can spend more on accessories :) They have really beautiful mother of the bride/groom dresses, and bridesmaid dresses. I would definitely recommend them because of the friendly service, the beautiful dresses, and their ability to help you find the dress you want within your budget. I also met Susie and Penny whom both were very sweet and helpful in every way too.

It's appointment only, so make sure to make one!

I went back to go look at bridesmaids dresses with the girls. I felt embarrassed because we were late, but it was snowing out and traffic was horrible. But, when we got there, they were very helpful and let us know that there was another bridesmaid appointment after us. I thought the girls and I had found the bridesmaid dress, but I just wasn't sure. TLC did not pressure us and gave me the time I needed to rethink it through. I wanted something more luxe, more elegant for the brides. Sure enough, when I went back to go look at bridesmaids dresses, Susie and Penny were just super super helpful, and because of their genuine desire to get at what I was looking for, we sure did find it. They have really great accessories too that wont break your budget.

I haven't called the order in, but 6 bridesmaid dresses, coming up!

This place makes me feel really comfortable :)

Terry and all the ladies at TLC are just wonderful. My mom and I were driving downtown looking for the place after just attending a funeral. (Mom lives about 2 hours away) We wanted to locate it and if they were still open, just peek in the bridal room to see if it was a place we wanted to make an appointment with. It was probably ten minutes before closing time and when we approached the door the sign said "By Appointment Only." I didn't want to just walk in, so I called from the street, explained that I just wanted to see the bridal room and make an appointment and Terry (the owner) had us come on up. We had NO intention of trying anything on that day, we just wanted to see if it was somewhere we wanted to explore.

We'd been to David's Cattle Call in Hagerstown - don't get me wrong, David's does have some beautiful dresses, but they don't listen to you and they are pushy for the high pressure sale. We'd stopped in another shop in Hagerstown and the lady was rude - telling us she did not have time to speak with us, but here are some books and if I see anything I want to try I would need an appointment. Hence the reason, we wanted to test the waters at TLC for atmosphere. Well they get a slam dunk right there.

We went up to the Bridal room, explained the situation and that mom was here down for a funeral and we wanted to just take a peek and see if it was somewhere we wanted to make an appointment for, I didn't know what shape, my budget is $0 (because I just think it's silly to have this ginormous wedding - but my fiance' thinks it's an important celebration - I'm the "non-bride" bride). Terry told us that most of her dresses run between $800-$1500 some a little higher, some a little more. Looked at my shape and said you need a this a that and a this to accentuate here, take away here, and do this. Told me to hold on a second and I thought we were going to make an appt. Instead she made a phone call - after store hours - pulled 5 dresses out and that was that.

She's good... she's really good. She knows her stuff, she's friendly but straight up, she HEARS what you're saying, she won't coerce you to spend more than you're comfortable with and - I can't say it enough - she's good.

So 5 dresses, we got to number 5 and she said "I can usually tell when a bride has found her dress" I asked if I'd found mine - she said yep, but I'm not telling you which one it is... Mom and I narrowed to 2, I made an appointment to bring my best friend/MOH & Grandmother in to look at the 2 - they were unanimous and Terry was right, I'd found my dress. (When my MOH was there we had an appt to look at maids as well and we received the same level of service and weren't rushed like some other reviews have stated - we had the time we needed - but there are other appointments waiting and if you're indecisive, then it's best to stop and move on to another time.)

So my dress.... it is a Casablanca that I NEVER would have chosen for myself off of their website - but I highly recommend this designer. They will make adjustments for you (I wanted mine higher on my chest) they will hem once so make sure you have the shoes you want to wear, and they do a beautiful corseted back WITH matching modesty panels. AND all less than 1K!!! I was THRILLED.

We ordered the dress in a color combination no one had seen and I picked it up this past Saturday - IT. IS. GORGEOUS. I am thrilled with it and was able to go in a little early for my pick up and get another dress off the discontinued/sale rack for a black tie event at the same time - again, Terry plucked it right out of all those gowns and I thought it had been custom made for me - fit like a glove - and I'm a curvy girl.

The service is excellent - I can't say enough good about Terry and the TLC girls - the shop is small, there are clear parameters - like making an appointment, no refunds/returns, and pick up guidelines - but it's all right there stated in signs around the shop, discussed with you when you place the order, etc.

Make your appointment girls, go see Terry, and TRUST her - she will put you in the dress that is the MOST flattering to your body and leave you stunning for your wedding day!

Though I may rate other vendors a 5.0, TLC is one for which I can absolutely unequivocally do so.

X-posted from my reviews on Yelp:

I had an exceptional experience here. This was the fourth store I visited, and though I generally had a good experience at all of them I found this one to be wonderful.

Terry, the owner, was my bridal consultant, and I completely appreciated her warm, genuine, helpful nature. She did not try to push anything, was very honest in her assessments (e.g. she tactfully told me she thought a particular dress was not flattering-- I think the term she used was "uniboob"), and even opened with "Well, you only have one day with your mom and I don't want to waste your time so I'm not going to show you any dresses that don't meet your criteria so that you still have time to look elsewhere if you don't find it here." My mom and the rest of my entourage loved Terry as well.

I did not have a 'perfect dress' in mind, but I did know I wanted more coverage than most dresses allow. TLC, like the other three stores I visited, had mostly strapless dresses (which I did not want) but I still managed to try a variety of dresses that were not strapless.

And-- I found my dress here and it was very reasonably priced!

We had a minor misunderstanding and Terry was super responsive on making sure I was not frustrated, changing her schedule at the last minute for me. She's really a great person to work with, and I am still glad I bought my dress here.

I showed up for my accessories appointment, Terry showed me exactly one veil (different one than I had tried on at my first visit), and I loved it and bought it. It was perfect. I don't even remember if I told her my criteria (I like a rat-tail or lace trim, I don't like sequins, I love blushers), but she picked the perfect veil with the right amount of detail to complement my dress. And, it was in my price range!

She did not try to oversell me anything-- I brought in my own shoes and necklace and she told me she loved them. I totally trust her.

Last Thanksgiving I bought my Casablanca dress from T.L.C. Bridal. It was truly a wonderful experience. I went with my Mom and we were given thoughtful, kind care. We picked out 8 dresses and the owner Terry had me try on a dress that I probably would not have picked out on my own. Of course that ended up being the perfect dress. They were careful about my price point and only showed me one dress that was over and said it was for the shape and if I liked that shape we could find one in my price point. They were very attentive and kind.

The remarkable thing happened after I chose the dress. My Mom was crying and the owner Terry commented "I know Mom it's an emotional time." I mentioned we had just lost my father a couple of weeks earlier and we were still very upset. Terry invited us to share Thanksgiving dinner with her family. We were so honored and we went! It was a lovely experience and she is truly a great person with a good heart. She has her clients best interest in mind and on my wedding day I wore a simply beautiful gown and had a million compliments on it. Thank you so dearly to T.L.C. bridal for all the help, kindness and an amazing Thanksgiving dinner at a really hard time in my life. You are the bridal boutique with class, and a heart. Thank you again!

Everybody at TLC Bridal was very friendly, helpful and patient. They didn't rush me into making decisions. I had some horrible experience at some other bridal salons, so I was happy to find TLC Bridal. They have very nice selection of dresses and good prices. I saw some dresses they had at other places at higher prices. I got my dream dress from them and was very happy with it. My mother-in-law couldn't believe the price I paid for the dress. She said it looked much more expensive.

I found TLC online through the designer's website. I wanted a specific Casablanca dress that I had not been able to find at any of the other 8 salons I went to in Maryland. I called TLC to check that they had the style number I was looking for. They were extremely helpful and I tried on that dress and others that they helped me find. She went out of her way to make sure I was extremely satisfied. I'm tall and we were worried about the length. Terry called me to come in again so she could personally take my measurements to make sure the dress would be long enough. She offered to pay for the neckline change I wanted since I drove back to the salon, which was about an hour away from my house. The dress was extremely well priced- half of what I thought I would spend. She made sure I had all the special custom changes that I wanted. She was wonderful. I LOVED my dress. :)

TLC is one of the few vendors I used that gets all 5 stars! I spent three weekends traveling to many bridal shops in the Baltimore/D.C./southern PA area. Terry was helpful from the moment I arrived at my appointment. I found two dresses I liked by the same designer. One of the dresses I told Terry, "this is the dress, if only it had two straps," and because the designer offered customization at a reasonable cost, Terry offered that I could get it with two straps! I designed the dress of my dreams, and for a minor additional cost, got exactly what I was looking for. TLC's pricing is very reasonable. It has a ton of inventory while keeping the small boutique attention and feel. I even had my bridesmaids order their dresses from TLC and they turned out fantastic! The girl's sizes were right on and even 2 of them have worn the dresses to other weddings! Thank you TLC, I will definitely recommend you to others!

The girl's sizes were right on and even 2 of them have worn the dresses to other weddings! Thank you TLC, I will definitely recommend you to others! Read less

I did not find my dress here. I did find it at another salon but ended up buying it here. It was a little cheaper. The owner Terry was very helpful throughout the entire process. I looked to her for everything! When I first went there I did not have an appointment. I wanted to look around and I got lucky because someone had cancelled and I was able to try on dresses. I was not a fan of some of the staff because they came off as not wanting to put girls in dresses and seemed to get upset at certain comments that in no way directed at them. They seemed to take things personally...although it was clear that we were talking about dresses or body types for a certain dress. Aside from certain staff everything else was wonderful! Again, I worked a lot with the owner and she always made sure everything was perfect. She even let me borrow a hair piece to try with hair trial. I ended up buying it. My dress came in on time and so did my bridesmaid dresses. If you need a seamstress....ask them about Yolanda. She is a miracle worker and her prices are the best!

Small boutique, but good selection. First time I got the true "bridal experience." Were not at all pushy, but helpful in making suggestions. Provided veils and accessories to try on to help complete the look. EXCELLENT PRICES! My dress came in in less than a month. It was too small, but the owner recognized that as her mistake and fixed it promptly! Loved my dress and the service we received here. My sister, bridesmaid and mother all ordered their dresses from TLC.

TLC was amazing! I had a low budget for my dress and needed to buy off the rack, but they were extremely accommodating and flexible. I hate shopping, but they made wedding dress shopping fun and stress-free. They listened to what I liked and pulled dresses that would work until I found the right one. I would highly recommend them! Thank you TLC for a great shopping experience and the perfect dress!

This was the 3rd bridal shop I visited, but it was by far the best experience I had. The helped me pick out some dresses based on what I had in mind, and they knew their products so well. I had a dress in mind by one designer, but they didn't carry that designer (which I knew ahead of time). However, my consultant knew the dress I was talking about, and knew they had a very similar dress. It turns out that dress was even better than the one I had in mind, and cheaper, too!

They were so flexible with me, too. My mom doesn't live near by, so my initial appointment was with just my bridesmaids. They were more than happy to let me make another appointment so that my mom could see the dress first. It was fantastic, especially because I know they can be busy on the weekends. However, the designer had increased the price of the dress between my two appointments. But my consultant gave me the original price because she knew I only waited for order it so my mom could see the dress first.

My bridesmaids were so impressed with my experience that they're ordering their dresses from TLC, too. I highly recommend this boutique to brides to be!

I got my wedding shoes, my veil, my tiara, my crinoline, my strapless bra AND my dress from TLC Bridal Boutique. I was at first skeptical going to Frederick (it was my mother's idea and I live in DC) but I am so glad I listened to my mother because the selections they have are so unique and to die for. I wanted a souther vintage dress and I found the perfect gown - so many I had found at other vendors were too "done" or too modern or just boring. I found a Sottero and Midgley dress, style JSM1137 that was PERFECT for a southern vintage theme - kind of Gone With the Wind without being overly done, with absolutely gorgeous lace detailing and lovely bodice. It made my waist look so tiny! I'm glad I listened to the ladies at TLC Bridal because on the hanger I didn't think much of it, but once I tried it on, I got teary-eyed and knew it was my dress! Terry the owner was so thoughtful in picking out a tiara that would match the dress and even took the extra time to find the perfect length veil. They had amazing shoe selections - I opted for low 2 1/4 inch heels because I wanted to dance, and they had great suggestions for a tailor. I was even lucky enough to snag the sample size from them at a bargain because it fit me and I received so many compliments from guests at what an amazingly unique wedding dress I had. Thank you TLC bridal for making me feel so gorgeous on my wedding day!

I originally made an appointment with Terry (owner) at TLC on a whim. I was actually the small percentage of brides who was not looking forward to trying on dresses. Terry made me an appointment same day and made me feel so completely comfortable. I found THE dress that appointment and could not be happier with my selection.

Terry is amazing and I was so pleased with my experience I went back for jewelry and other accessories. To these people who have reviewed negatively towards this salon... know this... Terry is very no-nonsense (but sweet as can be!). If you are there to play dress up and waste her time, the staff is going to know it. This is not the place to go and just play. But if you truly want to purchase an amazing dress for your amazing day... THIS IS THE BOUTIQUE FOR YOU! I will recommend TLC to everyone a thousand times over. Don't go to those big chain places (ahem, Davids). You're wasting your time. So stop reading reviews, get in your vehicle, and head to TLC. You won't be disappointed.

TLC Bridal was my 4th bridal shop. I live about an hour away, and my maid of honor insisted on calling every bridal shop in a 100 mile radius to find me a Maggie Sottero gown (they just had the best fit!) and TLC had the best selection. When I arrived I was plesantly suprised by the professional yet laid back atmosphere they had. I had also done the David's Bridal disasterous trip as many other brides had done, and I was about worn out by the time we had discovered TLC. The ladies there were fabulous. They didn't pull anything that was not what I described (and believe me, the other 3 shops were not very good at this). I had a destination wedding and just wanted a simple dress that fit my personality and I definately got exactly what I wanted. My dress was reasonably priced and I didn't blow my budget. I had a wonderful experiance and would recommend it to any bride who wants a personal experiance when selecting her gown, as every bride should!

Though I did not end up wearing the dress I purchased at TLC, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. The staff is very friendly and not at all uppity. The dresses are in the lower price range (for ridiculously overpriced wedding dresses, that is)....my dress was 1100 or so, but I bought the sample for 800. They are a small boutique, so they might not have the variety of styles of larger places...however, after being forced to suffer the humiliation of being stuffed into size-2 dresses with expander zippers sewn in at another bridal shop, it was a relief for this size-14 girl to see that they have dresses in a wide variety of sizes. As an added bonus, Frederick is a great town to spend an afternoon in...cool shops, good restaurants, cute houses....you should check it out!

When my fiancee and I started planning a destination wedding in the British Virgin Islands, I was apprehensive about finding a dress that was formal enough for what I had always imagined (my dream dress) but something that was also practical for a beach-side wedding. Terry and her staff were amazingly helpful, supportive, and honest when helping me select my dress. Not only were they attentive to me, my needs, and my concerns, but they were also tremendously supportive of my parents during the selection process (providing ample tissues for the dress purchase of their only daughter...)
I mention to every soon-to-be bride I meet to be sure and make a stop at TLC Bridal Boutique not only for the AMAZING selection of dresses but also for the supportive, one-on-one environment offered by Terry and her staff! I would strongly recommend every future bride make TLC their number one stop for their dress for their big day!

Terry (the owner) was wonderful to work with and very accommodating with me. She was sweet enough to mail me my veil so that I wouldn't have to drive from Silver Spring back up to Frederick to get it (and she didn't charge me). They have a wonderful seamstress named Yolanda who was not only very sweet but did an amazing job on my dress. I couldn't have asked for a better experience...even if you have to drive, TLC is worth it!

After trying several dress shops with no luck and not feeling like anyone really listened to what I was looking for, I found Terry Warfield and TLC. Terry knows wedding dresses and really listens to you and what you are looking for. She is honest and not pushy. During my first trip to TLC I tried on several dresses and explained what I liked or didn't like about each. Unfortunately at the time, they did not have exactly what I wanted in stock. Not long after that visit, I got an email from Terry about a dress she had just gotten in that she thought would be perfect for me. She was right! It ended up being the dress I chose! It was exactly what I had pictured! Terry even found the perfect veil for me to go with the dress. I was also able to order shoes and adorable flower girl dresses from TLC with ease. Terry and her staff were wonderful and professional throughout the whole process! I would definitely recommend TLC to all brides!

I didn't know what kind of dress I wanted or what would look best on me, so I was really looking for guidance. Terry and her staff were superb, unbelievably patient, and gave me some good ideas. When I found the right dress at another shop, I called TLC Bridal and they were able to order the dress for me. Terry has a fantastic eye and was able to make wonderful recommendations about jewelry, dress enhancements (two beautiful pins with pearls that Terry hand dyed for me!), and my hair. I felt very taken care of at TLC Bridal and my dress was perfect. It arrived in a timely manner (early actually) and was in good condition. I was so pleased and highly recommend TLC Bridal for a little more TLC than at the average dress warehouse!

I decided to buy my wedding dress from TLC because it was a local and privately owned small business. Terry and her staff are very helpful and accommodating. My dress arrived 2 weeks after we ordered it. When it first arrived, we thought it seemed a little snug. But, assumed I would lose weight and it would fit perfectly. Four months later (and 4 months before the wedding date), it fit even worse, and I had lost 5 pounds! Terry was helpful enough to send the dress back and ordered a size 10 (I normally wear a size 4). We learned that the dress I ordered runs about 2 dress sizes small. But, she was able to make an even exchange for the dress size with no extra cost. Minor alterations were needed....and the dress was perfect! I did not purchase any other items from TLC, but I did have my shoes dyed there...they had them done in 2 days. I would recommend TLC bridal to any future bride in the Frederick, MD area.

I was a plus-sized bride, and I had tried on two different gowns I'd fallen in love with in bridal shops in TN and NV. My mother lives in MD, so I wanted her to see me in these dresses before I made a final decision. I called about 20 bridal shops in Maryland, and then I called TLC Bridal. Terri answered the phone and I told her which two dresses I was looking for. She didn't have them, but she had similar dresses from different designers. I made an appointment to go try on the dresses, and both looked nice. Terri pulled out a couple of other ones for me to try on, saying that she had one she really thought I'd love. She was right--the one I ended up purchasing was entirely different from the original two choices! Terri and her team were phenomenal to work with, and I will continue to recommend her to every Maryland bride I know!

Terry and her sales associates at TLC Bridal Boutique are truly amazing. All of my visits to the shop before, during, and after the gown shopping process far exceeded my expectations. During each visit I was greeted by friendly staff members, my needs were discussed, I received a high level of service that focused on meeting my needs and sticking to my budget, I was always treated with respect, and I felt totally comfortable with the entire staff to the point that they felt a little like family (especially Terry). I highly recommend that you visit TLC Bridal Boutique if you have not already, and I encourage you to spread the word to all of your friends. TLC's service is truly unbeatable! Good luck as you shop for your dream gown.

Every Bride knows how frustrating it can e trying to find a dress. I went to this shop for the first time and when I went in I swore to myself my gown was in there. I tried in some dresses that were completely goregous! Penny was such a sweet lady and she helped me and gave me wonderful advise on my gown search. There was one dress I loved, so I came back with my mother and I showed her. Of course she didnt like it but, Terry suggested I try on this one gown. I tried the dress on and fell head over heals in love with it. My mother cried. everyone had my wedding said how lovely this dress was. =) I wouldn't have found my perfect dress without their wonderful taste in dresses and the ability to know what dress is going to look good on what body type! I would HIGHLY recommend going to this shop! its the best in the area. :) thank you guys!

I really loved the personalized attention I recieved, I truly felt special. Many brides shop all over until they find their dress but I only made one stop to find mine. The moment I tried on "the dress", both my mom and Terry both had tears in their eyes. I am so thankful that Terry helped me to pick out my perfect dress.

I am so excited to share my fabulous experience with TLC! Terry Warfield (owner) and her staff were incredibly welcoming and thoughtful throughout my wedding preparation. At TLC, I found a full service bridal boutique with the dress of my dreams, a gorgeous veil, perfect bridesmaid dresses and fantastic jewelry, but that is not all. From the first phone call to the final fitting, each of the staff members who I worked with was honest, courteous and sincere.

TLC requests that you make an appointment (and when you arrive you understand why). They are attentive to your needs during your appointment and are able to devote their time and attention to you. They start off with a few questions to learn about your wedding date, your budget and the style of dress that you are interested in wearing on your wedding day. After I answered their questions, I tried on the dresses that I picked out. Terry then chose dresses for me to try. She chose dresses within the price range that I provided earlier in the appointment. The two dresses that she chose turned out to be my top two choices, one of which I chose for my wedding day. The ladies at TLC set realistic and honest expectations. They can work with a wide range of budgets. I am so thrilled to recommend TLC to brides, bridesmaids, and mothers-of-the-bride/groom. Once I experienced the high customer service at TLC, I understood what it felt like to be a Bride.

Teri is AMAZING! I went to three other bridal stores before coming here - and none had the individually tailored service that TLC bridal had. I felt like a millionaire being fit for a ball! They picked out dresses for me that would look good with my body type, helped me get into them, and gave very helpful suggestions. The quality of the dresses was that of the best bridal stores around, and there weren't thousands of dresses to choose from - teri only keeps the best ones in her store. If you want to be treated like a queen for a price that is unbeatable - come here! ....as a side note - their prices seemed to range from $500-1200 for wedding dresses. Mine was 500 because it was a simple dress without much beading, but very nice quality.

I also picked out my bridesmaid dress here - its a little more expensive than getting it online - but worth it to go in the store - some bridesmaid dresses are simply hideous when they are on a real female body, so you really need to try them on first before making your girls buy them.

When I went to find my wedding dress, TLC was the first and last place I went. The owner pulled out as many dresses as I wanted to try on, and helped me in and out of them herself. When the style that I had thought I would go with wasn't working, she recommended dresses to me until we found the perfect dress, which Terry pulled out of a stash she had passing through the store as part of a trunk show. After the dress came in, I was able to have the alterations made by a woman who worked part time through TLC, and so I didn't have to keep track of two different locations. Be sure to schedule an appointment for anything you need at TLC, as the store can get busy.

I found my wedding dress on my second trip out and what a great experience I had with Terry at TLC (the first trip was to that well known wedding dress factory -- David's , which was less than a good experience). We started with dresses that I and my friends selected and then Terry started bringing dresses that just got better and better until I found 'the one'. I had the total 'it's the dress' experience. Terry and the others at the shop really know their business and were very helpful and accomodating. The dress came in on time as promised and I ended up getting earrings and shoes there as well. I also used Yolanda, a seamstress recommended by TLC, for my fittings and she was excellent. I received many comments not only on how beautiful the dress was but on how it looked like it was made for me. Highly recommend TLC and Yolanda.

I purchased my gown and veil from TLC, as well as my and my bridesmaids' jewelry. My bridesmaids purchased their dresses from TLC as well. Teri and her staff were warm and welcoming each time we went. I sing nothing but praise to Teri. When I visited for the first time I tried on more than a dozen dresses and was there for hours. She smiled the entire time and was determined to help me find just the right dress. She overlooked all measurements to ensure the proper sizes were ordered. She kept me up to date on my order status and was flexible in allowing me to delay pick up because I did not live close by. She also was able to recommend a fabulous seamstress. Teri and her staff took very good care of me and my girls. We could not have been happier with our experience.

I also got my brides maid dresses and my mother of the bride's dress.

I walked into TLC three months before my wedding and left with a one of a kind, beautiful dress that made me feel comfortable in my own skin. Terri was amazing at picking out gowns that made me feel beautiful, and was there with a tissue when we found "the one." I highly recommend TLC for every bride-- but remember to schedule the appointment early and I recommend week days (it is much slower and you get more one-on-one help).

The small, intimate salon feeling is relaxing, perfect for the stress of finding that dream dress. They were so great, that my sister decided to use them when purchasing her wedding dress a few months ago! FYI, they are also one of the few vendors in the area that carries Alfred Angelo.

When I got engaged, there was no doubt in my mind where I would be getting my gown. TLC really is the best. It is intimate and comfortable. You don't ever feel like a number, you are the only bride in the world to them. Their selection is amazing. Their dresses are tasteful, classy and elegant. Teri helped me narrow down my choices to a half dozen that would be flattering to my body type, wedding style and personality. That one step made all the difference. It wasn't stressful or overwhelming, just FUN! I knew I had the right dress when my mom and I both cried. I would (and have) recommended TLC to any bride I know!

I LOVE TLC Bridal! They were recommended to me by several friends. Teri was sooo helpful. I didn't realize you're supposed to have an appointment to come in, but when I came anyway, she wasn't busy, dropped her cleaning and helped me without hesitation. She was very knowledgable about what to wear with the dress, what shoes and jewelry, and she gave me tips for the wedding that I hadn't thought of (i.e. avoiding getting a white limo or white tuxes with an ivory dress, because it'll make the dress look dirty). I bought the second dress I tried on--it was perfect! I loved the selection of dresses, and the selection of accessories. My mom bought her dress there, and we got the dresses for my girls there (huge selection). They were very flexible about all the changes I made to my dress order for my girls, and the dresses turned out perfect! Bring water--the shop is upstairs and it can get a little warm, especially trying on heavy wedding dresses. Again, I LOVE TLC BRIDAL!

TLC Boutique has a great selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaid and flower gril dresses. I ended up getting all of my dresses from TLC and they were beautiful. They are very reasonably in priced and they give you great customer service. My dresses even came in way before they thought they would come in. When I purchased my dress they didn't have someone that could fit them right there which I thought would have been nice but they might have changed that. I also ordered my veil, shoes, and tiara from them. Definitly check them out.

I didn't even know about this place being in downtown Frederick until a family member who went in this store with a friend told me about it. You have to schedule an appointment, but when you do, you are given individualized attention.I first went there and the second gown I saw is the gown I chose. I truly did not want to spend over $700 for my dress. I chose an A-line halter style dress that was two-tone. It was under $500. The straps were champagne in color and the rest was ivory, but at the bottom there was at least 3 inches of blush colored embroidery it is a very beautiful gown. I love the gown so much I'm going to have it preserved so that I can either wear it again on an anniversary, renewing of our vows, or to pass down to our future children. I had also gotten all of my bridesmaids and maid or honor dresses from this vendor as well. Everyone was how it was supposed to be. When the dresses came in this vendor was very quick to let me know and they gave me a list of seamstresses which made it easy since I didn't know of any.

This boutique is a hidden gem waiting to be found by the masses. The Boutique is an historic home converted to a bridal shop with marble fireplaces and all the warmth and charm the website promises. The owner and her staff are super attentive, very educational and there is no pressure. I found the perfect gown for myself, my girls and my mothers, and we all felt special and well taken care of. My mother woud like to go back just to be pampered again. Prices were very reasonable and the selection was incredilble. Just remember to make an appointment, they fill fast especially on Saturdays.

I absolutely loved my dress vendor! They were very easy to work with, kind, and helped me get the dress I wanted, and the same can be said for my bridesmaids (5 of my 6 went to them, the 6th girl lives in Florida, so had to go locally for her). I had seen the dress I wanted on theknot.com, an A-line strapless Alfred Angelo dress with purple accents and a lace up back. It was perfect! And the first dress I tried on. They said they never had a girl go with the first dress she tried on, so I guess I have that distinction of being the first. I tried a few others on, with trains, more elaborate designs, etc, but I felt the best in the original one I picked. It only had a slight drag in the back, which was perfect for me. I didnt want all that drag to make me hot and frustrated.

Each of my bridesmaids got the same color dress, but each got a different style. It worked well, and each girl was able to pick one she liked. The dress shop also provided a list of alteration shops, and luckily we picked one who did a great job on the dress, though I admit, I didnt need much done to it.

All in all, great shop, with nice ladies, and the dresses come in pretty quickly too!

I had an excellent experience at TLC Bridal! My mom lives in Florida and I live in DC, so we had basically one weekend to find my dress together. I had a full weekend of dress appointments scheduled and TLC was my first one of the day... I'm so glad it was! When I made the appointment I let them know I was looking for a sample dress and they said they had a good selection of dresses in my size range that I would be able to take that day if I found one I liked.

I worked with Sue, who was great. She pulled dresses that met my ideas and then had some other suggestions that I hadn't thought of. They also provided me with undergarments which made the whole trying on process a lot easier. I ended up trying on a dress I saw on another woman and loved it, but I still wanted to try a few more. After going to another store, I couldn't stop thinking about the dress at TLC, so I called Sue and came back that afternoon to see it again. My mom and sister started crying when I put it on and I knew I found my dress! Sue made some excellent suggestions on an super sparkly belt and the best length of veil.

The prices at TLC are very reasonable and I got a discount for buying the sample dress (which is still in awesome condition, btw). The next day when I was admiring my dress at home, I noticed there was a crystal missing from the belt. I called TLC and they immediately placed an order for a replacement belt, no questions asked. Their customer service is truly top-notch!

TLC is a smaller wedding boutique, but they still have a great selection and you can't put a price on awesome customer service. Thanks so much TLC!!!

TLC Bridal Boutique was wonderful to work with. They're so welcoming and friendly, and my consultant was great -- she listened to me and took my opinions and "wish list" seriously, but also offered valuable feedback and got me to try on a few dresses I might not have tried on normally, including the one I bought! They also helped suggest accessories, hairpieces, etc., that would look good with my dress.

The seamstress they recommend is a little bit on the pricy side; I was originally a bit taken aback by the price of my alterations, but she does fantastic work as well.

I would definitely recommend TLC to any brides in the area -- they'll take good care of you!

I really enjoyed my experience at TLC Bridal. I worked with two different associates when I tried on gowns and when I picked up my gown. They were wonderfully helpful and professional. I thought they gave me honest feedback on the gowns I tried on. They brought out gowns that were in my specified price range and did NOT attempt to slip in a more expensive gown. Also, they were very in tune to they style and type of gown I was looking for, making the experience much smoother.

I do wish they had a seamstress affiliated with them directly. They do give a list of seamstresses in the area, which was helpful.

I went to TLC to try on "the dress" in the right color (when I originally found it at another store it was in ivory). Though I only had a 1 hour appointment and they were quite busy, the entire staff was more than accommodating and allowed me to try on a few other dresses that I saw just to be sure. Once I had decided on my dress, there was zero pressure to purchase it. I actually left (because I didn't plan on getting married until next year) and when I called in a panic because we moved our date up by 1 year they got me right in for a measurements. I again asked to try on the dress just to be 100% sure and they were again very patient and did everything they could to make me comfortable and confident in my decision. All in all I'd definitely recommend at least going to try on dresses if for no other reason than to have a pleasant experience. The staff is wonderful and do everything they can to make sure you're sure of your decision.

I visited TLC after an unsuccessful trip to David's. At David's we had to beg the salesperson for attention and she was rushed trying to help other customers. While the prices are great there, the dresses I tried on were not very flattering on me and even with the seemingly huge selection, nothing really felt right.

At first I was nervous to try TLC because I assumed they'd be way out of my price range. However when I called and made an appointment and told the salesperson I wanted to spend less than $1000, she was very supportive. During my appointment, the salesperson worked with me and only me so I had her full attention. She never tried to push me out of budget. The store carries a wide range of dresses in every style and price point. They even have a variety of sizes in house so I wasn't just trying to fit into sample sizes. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the dresses they carry and about options as far as alterations.

I ended up ordering my dress and it arrived by the time it was promised. When I went to pick up the dress a salesperson again gave me one on one attention to help me choose a bra and jewelry.

You definitely have to make an appointment - the size of the salon is small and they want you to be able to work with a salesperson individually. The selection was very good and the service was very helpful. I was definitely happy with the experience and love the dress I found there.

I visited this shop twice and I am so glad that I did. I ended up purchasing my gown from another shop only because I had fallen in love with it and found it no where else. But Terry was so helpful and professional. She took her time with me and had me try on gowns that I didn't think I could pull off but ended up loving. She helped me into the dress and out of it, and never left my side. I only wish I had found my dream dress there because it was such a great experience. I went once by myself and then again with my mom who made a special trip up just to attend. I really enjoyed the experience that I was able to have with my mom there, Terry made sure it was memorable.

Several other women in the shop were also very helpful as we narrowed down our selection. The dress came in right on time and looked absolutely gorgeous. Terry also recommended the florist (To the 9's in Frederick, MD) I ended up choosing, so I can't thank her enough for pointing me in his direction.

The Making of Bride
I shopped around A LOT for a wedding gown, months in fact. I never seemed to find the right dress that combined all the things I needed in one dress no matter how many I tried on. Terry and the ladies at TLC were my first and then eventually last stop on my wedding gown choice train. The two things I was looking for in a gown were 1) Price and 2) Flattering silhouette. I was not a girl who had her gown vision from jump. I wanted someone else to tell me what was going to make me and my body look the best it could possibly look on the wedding day. TLC did just that AND for the price I needed.

Terry and the ladies at TLC were my first and then eventually last stop on my wedding gown choice train. The two things I was looking for in a gown were 1) Price and 2) Flattering silhouette. I was not a girl who had her gown vision from jump. I wanted someone else to tell me what was going to make me and my body look the best it could possibly look on the wedding day. TLC did just that AND for the price I needed. Read less

Terry the owner of the boutique was awesome. Each time I went to try dresses she would give honest feedback and was not pushy. She did not try to get me to buy anything and helped me mix and match my dress parts until it was exactly what I wanted. SHe was also patient in helping me to add a piece to my dress to give it the look I wanted even when i could not put it into words. About 2 days before Christmas I called and requested she send me a piece of fabric I got it within 2 days of my request which I thought was awesome considering most people wont even answer their phone during this time. Although they dont have a seamstress on site she communicated to the seamstress what I wanted to add and how she thought it could be done. She was awesome and if I renew my vows and get another dress I will go there first just for the service, It is very small and intimate but they are not pushy and they aare very helpful.

My wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses were purchased from TLC bridal. TLC has an extensive variety of bridal gowns to meet anyone's price needs, and my Alfred Angelo gown was just gorgeous and didn't break the bank! They also have a large selection of bridesmaid dresses and we found the perfect dresses for my wedding. The only snag was my mother-in-law's dress- the wrong dress was ordered but thankfully TLC gave her her money back and we managed to find another dress.

When you first visit TLC, you walk up to a narrow converted townhome in historic Frederick and wonder "how can a store so small have any sort of selection?" Well, you're in for a surprise! What you will find is an ample offering of personally selected gowns by the owner, Terry Warfield. Instead of muddling through endless dresses to find one halfway decent one at one of those big dress stores, I tried on about a dozen dresses, had four that would have easily been "the one" and had a very tough decision between two. They only make one appointment at a time so all of their attention is on you. And their prices are very reasonable and have dresses to fit every budget. Terry and her staff were very good with listening to what I wanted in a dress and helped me find dresses that would be most flattering; I ended up buying a dress I didn't want to try on by what it looked like on the hanger, but Terry insisted. I'm so glad she did!

I am a young picky bride, I came with an open mind and the only thing I requested was for my breasts not to be served on a platter (hanging out of the dress).
Tlc was not only understanding but patient. They went through many styles until we finally found the dress. The lady who helped me was jovial and seemed genuinely interested in finding the dress. Over all, I feel that this shop is excellent and doesnt get the praise or recognition that it deserves. I will be telling every bride to be I meet about this place!
I couldnt be more excited or happy.

I had a completely wonderful experience at TLC! I am a plus size and I was so worried about finding a dress that would fit me. TLC understood my worries completely and treated me like the princess I want to be for my special day! The staff were warm, friendly and not a bit concerned about my curves - I could not have asked for a better experience! I can't wait to take my bridesmaids there for their dresses!

I came to TLC to look for a wedding dress....something I have never done (age 46) and I was very overwhelmed! Terry and JJ were amazing at making me feel relaxed, listening to my concerns, needs, wants, everything and made me feel very comfortable. I was amazed that I found the perfect dress in less than 30 minutes! Unfortunately, I had come alone to "get over the jitters" before I came with my family and friends. I didn't want my mom to be disappointed that she was not with me when I found it, so JJ played along and we tried dresses again on another day and it was magical for my mom and girlfriends! What a great experience!

As a new bride I wanted a more non-traditional bridal dress so by the time I made my appointment at TLC I've already been to 7 other stores with no luck (plus a 30 min. from my house). From the start, the ladies were great with helping me in all aspects of the process. Even though it's a small store the personal touches and time TLC takes was worth the trip every time. They had a wide selection of traditional and non-traditional dresses in which the third one I tried on was the ONE!

The dress and veil I ordered from TLC Bridal was beautiful and TLC was easy to work with. My dress came in earlier than anticipated and they were flexible on shipping for the veil. They don't do dress alterations so that was a down side but they did offer many recommendations for alterations places. They also did not correctly size me for the dress I needed. They sold me a dress that was already too big.

I loved the dress that I got from TLC. However, there were quite a few bumps in the road when ordering and receiving the dresses. We ordered both my dress and my bridesmaids. Terry was very accomodating with the issues and quick to respond and rectify them. First my dress was ordered a size larger, due to my bust, but then had to pretty much be taken down an entire size. I know this isn't necessarily their fault as they went off the chart they had, and I accepted, but it definitely increased my costs when the dress itself was expensive. When my dress came in it was missing a shawl that came with the dress, which they did not realize. They called the designer and had them ship out a new one which came in a timely manner. When it came to the bridesmaids dresses I was not told that they will be ordered all at once, until the last girl came in which made it close for comfort. Then once they came in I had a bridesmaid down in FL and due to a lack of 'double checking' they sent her the wrong bridesmaid dress. Shipping was comped and fixed quickly, but made it a bit of a hassle. Other than these problems everyone was accomodating and nice. The shop itself has various different designers and styles of dresses.

I think for all the compliments I received and how I felt in the dress on that special dress, the price I paid for it was a steal! I enjoyed the selection at TLC.....we also found our bridesmaids and Mother dresses there! A great spot in Frederick!

I have ordered my wedding gown and my bridesmaid's dresses through TLC Bridal Boutique, and am so far very happy.

From the minute I walked into the shop, I knew that I was going to have a much better experience than at David's. Everyone was very friendly and professional. I was seen almost immediately, escorted into the bridal room, and talked with the saleswoman (sorry don't remember her name) and told her what I did and did not want. We walked together to pull some dresses and she really listened to my vision. We pulled about 8 dresses.

I tried the 1st, it was very lovely but not for me. The 2nd I knew right away was the one. It was fabulous and I could not stop smiling. This was actually a dress that Terry chose for me. I tried on the others, just to make sure there wasn't another that I liked better, but number 2 was the winner. They let me put it back on, accessorize, and just bask in my beauty!

The process of ordering the dress went fairly smooth. There is a little stress because the dress will not arrive until a few weeks before the wedding- Chinese New Year is delaying the shipment. So far I am very happy, but we will see how things pan out in March.

I liked the atmosphere, staff, and dress selection so much that I had the bridesmaids get their dresses from TLC. The staff worked well to listen to my friends and choose dresses in our price range.

So far, a great experience. Some of the dresses are a bit pricey, but that's not TLC's fault. I thought they had a great range of dresses, from some under $1k to others over.

I'd absolutely recommend this vendor to other brides.

TLC was great when looking for the dress. They only allow two clients in at a time so they can spend as much time as you need in picking out a dress. The value was great as was the service. The only thing that was wrong was they ordered a dress a size too big and i had to have extensive alterations and rebeading done. However, i would still recommend this vendor.

I had a short engagement, so went to TLC to purchase a gown "off the rack." I described to them the dress I envisioned, which ended up being not a good style for my body! The dress I wore was perfect for me, and I received so many compliments. It was a dress that had been in the store for only a couple of weeks, so looked like it had been ordered for me.

I also purchased 4 bridesmaid dresses there. This process was quite a bit more stressful, as each girl (my 3 daughters and my now-step daughter) each chose their own style, the consultant helped each girl choose a flattering style that they loved. She also helped us choose a color, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. the dresses all came in at different times, which was stressful. One dress came in in a size WAY too small, which was a manufacturer's error. TLC paid for the significant alterations needed on the dress, as there was no time to re-order.

My mother ordered her dress from here. She chose the first dress she tried on and she was ecstatic. We ordered it at the beginning of November and we were told it would be in within 4 months. We didn't receive the dress until 6 months later. The whole time they kept saying it should be in next week when the dress was in China and they were celebrating the new year. When we finally received the dress it was too small! The lady had measured her correctly, but wrote down a measurement incorrectly on the order form. This is something that is easily done, but they wouldn't own up to their mistake. We found an amazing seamstress in Frederick to fix the problem, but the stress that came from waiting for the dress and hoping it could be fixed wasn't worth it.

After going to 6 different bridal salons - from the standard fair David's Bridal to Hannelore's in Alexandria and everything between - I happened upon TLC Bridal. Although I did not have an appointment, they allowed me to squeeze in between appointments since my mom was in town for the weekend and leaving the next day. After trying on so many dresses up to this point, I knew as soon as I tried my Casablanca gown on that I had found the one. After doing some price comparisons with other bridal boutiques that sold my dress I learned that TLC was a bit more expensive than the others, however they graciously matched the price for me so I was able to purchase my dress in Frederick. While I love my dress and was so pleased that they squeezed me in for the initial dress selection process, the staff was somewhat hot and cold in subsequent visits. Sometimes some of the staff was very friendly and accomodating, other times if you caught them when they were very busy they were somewhat abrupt with me. Finally, they were very up-front about it, but they do not offer alteration services through TLC. They do contract with a couple seamstresses who will come to TLC after hours, but I actually ended up getting my alterations done closer to my office in Rockville. This concerned me at first, as if something had happened to the dress during alterations the shop would not have been liable, but I found a great seamstress, so it worked out perfectly!!!

Pricing is for my dress, veil, shoes and slip.

Mediocre experience � Terry the owner was helpful but distracted. I purchased my wedding dress here and my bridesmaids all purchased their dresses here. My only compliant was that my bridesmaids also purchased dye able shoes from TLC and arranged for them to be dyed by TLC. All the girls purchased their shoes at various time and all paid the same quoted price for the shoes and for the dye job. They were all called back later by TLC and told that they would need to pay an additional $20 to dye the shoes. This seems slightly dishonest to me (to charge one price and then call back to demand more money) and soured my impression of the store.

All the girls purchased their shoes at various time and all paid the same quoted price for the shoes and for the dye job. They were all called back later by TLC and told that they would need to pay an additional $20 to dye the shoes. This seems slightly dishonest to me (to charge one price and then call back to demand more money) and soured my impression of the store. Read less

Overall I thought the service was good and I was very happy with my dress (I had a short engagement so I bought my dress "off the rack"). The shop had beautiful dresses within my price range - and they were conscious of price range when showing dresses. However, during the appointment I did feel rushed and alot of pressure to make a quick decision. When I asked if I could think about it and come back in an hour (after lunch) to make the purchase - there was resistance (although in the end they said it would be OK- but I was required to call before returning). Also, while I know this is not there area - I had asked what they thought the alterations on the dress would be - rather than saying I don't know- I was given an estimate that was less than half the actual cost (going throught their recommended tailor service)

I purchased my wedding gown from TLC and had a fantastic experience - they were extremely helpful, nice, and accomodating when I found my dream dress! So it seemed like the obvious choice to take my bridesmaids there to order their dresses... big mistake! The consultant who worked with us didn't seem to know what she was doing and the woman who took care of the financial end of things was rude to her staff in front of us and extremely pushy. We ended up ordering 5 dresses from them and spending over $2,000 but they still had the nerve to call, saying they had made an error in calculating the final balance and we needed to pay the additional $20 they had miscalculated! After all of the business and money we had given them, you would've thought they'd have been professional enough to wave the $20 THEY didn't account for. It really is a shame because until the experience with the bridesmaids, I would've recommended them. They do have a nice selection of dresses and the bridal consultants are nice.

I originally found my dress in another shop in Baltimore, close to where I lived, but because I felt their shop was so unprofessional I didn't want to order from them, so I opted to go an hour away to Frederick and TLC. The shop is nice, but the staff seemed a bit harried. I placed an order for my dress, veil, jewelry and headpiece. The dress came in, on time, but no one ever called me to tell me it was in..I kept calling and calling, and finally they said, oh, it got here a few days ago. Same thing with my accessories- they even misplaced my headpiece for a few days, and then when the found it were weren't even 100% it was the one I ordered. I think the shop has the potential to be great, the staff is very nice and helpful, but I think they don't have enough experienced staff working there and things were a bit disorganized. But they had a great selection of dresses, even though I had already found the dress I wanted.

Honestly, had I only gone for my gown, I probably would have given them 5 stars. I worked with Terry, the owner, and she's fabulous. She's kind and very knowledgeable. I wasn't uncomfortable at all and I was the only bride in the shop at the time. I loved my gown and though it was more than I was planning to spend, we went ahead and purchased it. The dress came in exactly when they said it would and I had no problems when I came back to try it on and pick it up.
However, I returned with my bridesmaids and the service was terrible. The selection is extremely limited and pricey, you are only given 45 mins to try on dresses, and though it was snowing outside, it was like a sauna in the dressing room. I don't even know the person's name who "helped" us because she was rude and not worth knowing. She disagreed with every opinion offered (not that we asked her opinion), didn't answer any of our questions, or take the time to really help us in any way. We were almost relieved to be run out of there at the end of our brief time there.
So overall, yes for bridal gowns, no for bridesmaids dresses.

I did not buy my wedding dress here so I cannot review based on that, but all 5 of my bridesmaids bought their dresses at TLC. The sales staff seemed pretty stuck up and somewhat rude. We were not there to buy cheap dresses so I don't know why they had such a problem with us. They were rushing us even though we had an appointment and they tried to put everyone in sizes that were way too big. Luckily my girls spoke up and decided on their own what sizes they needed. The dresses did end up being perfect, but I would not recommend going here for the service.

I have mixed feelings about TLC Bridal Boutique. Initially, I had a warm fuzzy feeling about my experience there since the gals were nice, attentive, and helped me find my dress. I did feel pressured into picking a dress that day due to circumstances, but they also didn't do anything to alleviate that pressure. I found a gown that I adored, looked great on for a trial gown 4 sizes too small, but definitely wasn't the BEST gown for my body type due to it's design (backless gown for a gal with a large bust). Since gown in the store was too small, I couldn't tell just how backless it was (and TLC also didn't consider the backless part when they were pulling the gown for me to try) but they insured me that their recommended alterations woman could adjust the bust to fit me, even put in cups that would match my cup size so I wouldn't have to wear a bra (backless bras are not made in my size), and be able to hem the lace gown. I received my gown and took it to the alteration business they recommended. While the alteration woman is very good, she can't perform miracles that defy 1. gravity and 2. available materials. Cups in my size to sew in to my gown simply don't exist, despite the gals at TLC claiming that the alterations woman had previously sewn large cups like the ones I needed into another gal's gown. The alterations woman also couldn't hem the gown like TLC said that she would be able to do. TLC is completely out of touch with what the realities are in the alterations department. They convinced me to buy a $1500 gown with the promise that the alterations would make it fit me perfectly. The alterations woman worked as much magic that she could into the dress. It ended up looking good, but I was not comfortable nor supported in the bust like I wanted for my wedding dress. After getting hit hard with the alteration realities the whole experience at TLC left me with a sour taste in my mouth. Beware & be smart when dress shopping. Go with your gut instinct.

I went to TLC forvmy first wedding dress buying experience yesterday. It was disappointing to say the least. They did not great us when we came in, they simply told us to leave our drinks outside. They did not introduce themselves to my bridal party, mother, or grandmother, they did not even acknowledge that they were there. When I showed them a picture of what I was looking for they made a face and said they did not have anything like it, and that I would have a hard time finding that dress. I found the exact dress I loved at 2 of their competitors stores later that day. Overall, a horrible experience, I do not reccomend this store to anyone that wants their dress buying experience to be memorable, pleasant, or special.
