For the Washington DC/MD/VA brides, there is a bridal boutique in Rockville that is closing in February. I think she said end of February, but I’m not sure.
It is Distinctive Designs Bridal and it is close to Shady Grove Metro station. All dresses are $399, a smaller selection is $199, jewelry is 50% off, and veils are more than 50% off. Obviously everything is off the rack and as-is.
Hours are a little strange, so check the website before you make the trip. I was in there this weekend and they still have some gorgeous dresses available.

Thank you SO MUCH for posting this! I had settled on a dress already, but work right near Shady Grove metro and went by to see what they have last week after seeing this post Ended up buying a $2,300 dress for $299!!! All dresses are $299 now and the small selection for $199. If you are anywhere nearby, it’s worth it to take a look! I couldn’t have afforded the dress of my dreams otherwise!
They will officially close up shop in the next 2-3 weeks. The had a lot of small and larger sizes, not many in the middle. A lot of size 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, some 10, more 14s, 16, 18, 20 and even as high as 26.

If anyone else is intersted in going, time is beginning to run short!! Good luck!
