Hi Donna!!
I wanted to thank you again for giving me the perfect look for the wedding of my dreams!!! We just received the photos from our photographer, and I wanted to share pictures of the completed wedding dress! My mom and I added lace around the bottom of the whole dress, as well as on the neckline, and added a belt. I wore the veil and the necklace that we also purchased from your adorable boutique! I can’t thank you enough. Feel free to use the photos if you want!

Hi Donna,

My new bride Kenisha and I want to thank you from the bottom of or hearts. I am back from Guyana now and the wedding day was fantastic and the wedding dress was spectacular. As you know she could not find a suitable dress in Guyana and I was so lucky to see your link on the internet. I was not able to ship the dress so I had to fly it down with me just two weeks before the wedding. The dress fit like a charm, you most definitely know your wedding dresses  One visit to your shop and everything was taken care of at great price, you’re truly a life saver.

Kenisha made me promise to send you some photo’s. She will be in VA soon and I am sure she will want to stop by and thank you again. Have a wonderful day.



“Fairytale Brides on a Showstring was an absolute dream! I made a reservation to go in the shop and despite a huge snowstorm practically shutting down 355-Rockville Pike they remained open for me and the other brides who had made appointments that day. I was able to touch the dresses, try on as many as I want (some more than once) and all in a no-pressure, fun atmosphere with my mom and dad by my side. The volunteer staff were encouraging, friendly and patient. Wedding planning and dress shopping can be stressful but with their help and their genuine love for the job it was an amazing experience. Making the decision of what dress to get can be hard, so in a way, having only sample sizes to choose from made it easy: it either fits or it doesn’t fit! If it doesn’t fit, it wasn’t meant to be! I found two dresses so instead of agonizing over which one to get, I got both! The dresses are SO reasonably priced, you DO only wear it once, so I was not going to break the budget! I walked out with my dresses the same day, there was no waiting for months for my dress to come in from overseas and forgetting what it looked like. I came back several months later and found the veil of my dreams as well. I truly hope you’ll choose them for your special day!”
