I need WB’S help! I do not want to drive around all over the DC area looking for my wedding dress. I want a store that has the biggest selection of wedding dresses. Get in and get out is my motto.
What is the biggest bridal store in VA/DC/MD? Think Kleinfeld but in the DC area.

Jeanette’s Bridal in Manassas has a big selection. I think more designers than the ones listed on their website but better to call and find out for yourself http://www.jeanettesbride.com. But I think it’s good to see what kind of designers you like and go to a store that carries that designer’s dresses.

If you are on a budget, I’d look at David’s Bridal. They seriously have some pretty amazing dresses. Other than that, Hannelore’s in Old Town has good selection as does Katharine’s Bridal.

I did research after research…..I had narrowed it down to four and had appointments set up at all of them:
1. Jeanette’s Bridal In Manassas. They had a huge selection, and it was the first place my mom and I went. We went on a Friday when they opened, it was great because we were the only one’s there. So we could take our time and look around. Unfortunately, did not find what I was looking for.. Also note that all the gowns are in bags, but you can search around to see what you like and they will pull them for you to try on.
2. J.P Lawrence Bridal in Gaithersburg, MD: This was the second place my mom and I went that same Friday. LOVED it there. My consultant was Mia, and she was wonderful. They carried an ample line of Maggie dresses (When pulling pictures, this was the designer I seemed to have th most of). I ended up finding my dress here, and it is a Maggie. I am also having my bridesmaids order from here (get a discount because I purchased my gown). They were super friendly and really helpful.
The other two places which I never got to were: Bobbie’s Bridal Botique in Faifax, VA and Rosalin’s Bridal Botique in Fall’s Church. They seemed to have really good reviews as well for the area….can’t tell you what they are actually like as we cancelled the appointments once we found the dress.
I would suggest going on a weekday if possible. I had my ipad with me and had downloaded the styles of dresses I liked so the consultant could get an idea of what I liked…Good Luck 🙂
