Everything was perfect - thank...

Everything was perfect - thank you! Helpful, friendly, great selection, incredibly skilled seamstresses for alterations, always greeted with a smile! Good to know - (1) they have a small parking lot so try to carpool if you're bringing mom/bridesmaids, (2) they ask you not to take pics in the dress until you buy it (this is true everywhere), and (3) it's a small shop which is great for individual attention but best to schedule an appt for during the week if you can or first thing Saturday morning.

Everything was perfect! Thank you!!

I am so happy I found Katherine's! I couldn't have been happier with them!

Honestly, I'm shocked by the negative reviews, doesn't even sound like the same store. I got married in May 2011. I first went to Katherine's in Sept. 2010. It was easy to get an appointment. I went early on a Saturday. They were busy, but not crowded, and always attentive. Honestly, this was the most friendly (least snobby) bridal salon I went to (based on 3 others).

TIP to all brides, if you don't want a bridal consultant in the dressing room while you undress -- JUST ASK (POLITELY). (Common sense?) It's customary for the consultant to be in there with you because these dresses are huge, hard to get on, and expensive. But I always asked *politely* if I could have some privacy, and they always gave it to me. (This was true at every salon I went to.) The consultant would turn around or step back in to help me zip up or finish getting into the dress.

I worked with Kathleen and Shanna. They really listened to what I wanted, were so patient when I tried on the same 2 dresses about a thousand times, and never pushy. Their prices were reasonable. The dress came in on time (early actually). Their seamstresses are AMAZING! I worked with Ludy, what a wonderful woman -- so patient and talented!!!! She did beautiful alterations, and made a gorgeous veil. On my wedding day I loved my dress, everyone complimented it, and I felt perfect.

Seriously, I can't think of one complaint. Yes, their parking lot is small. Hello, welcome to Northern Virginia -- be glad they have a parking lot at all and carpool! Yes, they are busy on Saturdays - but so is everyone. Schedule your appointment early, be on time, and have a little patience. I was always greeted with a smile and always looked forward to my appointments there!!
