About Us

At Fairytale Brides on a Shoestring, your dress is more than just a dress–your dress is someone else’s fairytale ending. Help us “Empower Women one Dress at a Time.”
Our dresses arrive to our store from designers, other bridal salons, and donations from generous individuals. All dresses are heavily discounted off the retail price, with some up to 90% off. Our regular line of designer dresses are no more than 5 years old and range in price from $200-$1000. We also have a Couture for Charity Collection, featuring names like Anne Barge, Carolina Herrara, Peter Langner and Ines Di Santo with prices below $6000.


Here at Fairytale Brides on a Shoestring, we strongly believe in a whole new shopping experience. Our uniqueness comes from the fact that everyone you see in the store is a volunteer, and net proceeds from all sales are donated to charitable organizations supporting women’s empowerment programs. At the present time, our donations benefit the following organizations:

Suited for Change

Helping women return to the workforce successfully

Victims’ Rights Foundation

Raising money for Mama Sarah Early Childhood Development Center in Kenya, which educates children ages 3 to 6 who have the HIV Virus;

Rockville High School Scholarship

Covering tuition for a senior for a full year at Montgomery College

“Here is a picture of the beautiful dress you sold me (your first couture one)! Nicole made me a beautiful veil to match. They were both perfect!” Olivia

“My dress was absolutely perfect for me! I bragged about the affordable cost of my dream dress but more importantly the little money that I did spend goes towards a great cause.”


“I wanted to thank you again for giving me the perfect look for the wedding of my dreams!!! ” Jasmine
