I ended up getting my dress from DB online, but I did visit their Richmond store (but there are several closer to DC).  Had I still been looking, White Swan in Vienna, VA was a boutique on my list to visit.

amazinluv :  yes I had a great experience at that salon and was very close to getting my dress from there but ended up not doing so. I would definitely  recommend them if you like that style of dress

amazinluv :  I went to Ellie’s bridal boutique (Alexandria, close to the King Street metro) and Jeanette’s Bride ‘N Boutique (out in Manassas).  I ended up getting my dress at the latter, but my experience was great at both.  Schelping out to Manassas was really annoying, but I loved my dress and they did such an amazing job on alterations that I didn’t feel the need to have anything done at my second fitting.  I found alterations to be really expensive, but I imagine it’s because I had a lace dress and some more difficult alterations (including taking it in a good bit).  At my first fitting, they pinned me up and told me the cost of alterations.  They said if I lost/gained weight or needed more alterations for any reason, it would be included in that cost.

ETA: I know someone who went to the BHLDN in Georgetown and bought her dress there; she said she had a great experience.

I looked at BHLDN in Georgetown and had a nice experience.  I ended up buying from Elegance by Roya on King Street in old Town Alexandria.  My budget was also $1500 and I bought a sample.  I was choosing between 3-4 samples, all under budget and all in perfect condition.  Roya did all of my alterations for $250 because it was a sample.  I believe she designed the dress herself and it was real silk with some lovely beading.  I think she has a $500 flat fee for alterations if you don’t purchase a sample.  I was very happy!  Roya was so nice and did a great job with the alterations.
