I’m getting ready to go dress shopping soon. I was wondering what shops you went to in the Richmond or Hampton Roads areas. Is there anywhere you would highly recommend or recommend that I avoid?
Any info is helpful!

i personally ended up going to NYC but i went to Hitched in DC to get bridesmaids dresses and was very impressed with their bridal collection as well. if i didn’t already have a dress by then, i definitely would have gotten it from there. and they were so nice and accomodating. there is also a priscilla of boston in vienna and carine’s in DC is also supposed to be really good.

I just made an appointment at Maya Couture in Norfolk since it is closest to my mom and sister. This is my first trip trying on dresses so I’m excited and nervous!
@andy- off topic, but I love your avatar! are you using that monogram in your wedding?
@hesspm- I have heard good things about Bella Rosa and really want to go there. They have a lot of good collections. I pass it on my way to whole foods every weekend and consider making a quick detour… haha.

Hey I’m a peninsula area bride. I bought my dress at Blush Bridal Consignment Boutique in Newport News Port Warwick area. It’s a Maggie Sotterro and it was only 500. I would definitely check them out. I believe there’s a consignment shop in norfolk as well, but I can’t vouch for it as I’ve never been there.

Jingles in Richmond — for everything! The customer service is OUTSTANDING!!! I got my dress and my bridesmaids’ dresses there!
Also, I have a friend who opened up a bridesmaid boutique on Grove Ave called Bella Bridesmaid. Might want to check them out for some bridesmaid options!

Bridal Elegance in Short Pump
The nicest people EVER and lots of great styles in a variety of price ranges. I went there just twice. The first time I did not have an appointment – not a problem. The second time I went in was decision time and they brought the top two dresses I selected plus a few new ones that had come in since that were similar and I LOVED one of the new ones.
Besides the people I love the fact that the place is decorated with photos and thank yous from all their previous happy customers.
Also it a family run place – not a big box store.
