I thought it was worth reviving this question once more to get some fresh opinions. I know everyone suggests Angie and Estee. Has anyone seen anyone else that they really liked? I’m hoping for someone affordable within DC proper, but I’d be willing to go to the ‘burbs if necessary. And, affordability is important!
Let me know if you’ve got someone worth a recommendation.

@ardowns: I went to Cheryl A. Lofton & Associates. They had good reviews and I needed someone I could get to without a car if necessary (they’re in Shaw near the metro). They were great to work with – I wanted to do a few things they advised against (add cups and let the waist out, whether it was too poofy and I should remove the crinoline), so they’ll be honest and not upcharge. Also, I was long-distance planning for part of this and they were very accommodating with scheduling fittings and finally picking up the dress. Cost – depends on what you need done. Mine was about what I expected after some research, but I don’t know how they compare to the two you mention because I didn’t get quotes from either.

@MsSven: Thanks. I saw they had some good reviews on-line, so they’re one I’m considering…
Anyone else have any recs?
