I had a really wonderful experience at Lovely Bride in DC in May of 2024 – my stylist Sydney was so warm and welcoming.This was my first appointment ever and I came in with a few nerves and Sydney quickly helped me feel so comfortable. She listened to my likes and dislikes and brought out some really beautiful dresses.Lovely has such a wide array of dresses in all different styles and sizes and I found that the 90 minutes was a perfect length of time to figure out what I liked and disliked. I will 100% recommend Lovely to any DC brides I know!

Michelle is the BEST!!! In addition to picking out THE one for me, she was so helpful and attentive and detail oriented. She made me feel so beautiful in all the dresses and gave such helpful feedback. Can’t imagine a more positive experience!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Lovely and specifically Kierra, the associate. I walked in with no idea, but walked out with a selected gown. The process was so enjoyable and Kierra provided so much comfort and knowledge. Every step of the process from selection, to ordering, to pickup was just smooth. I cannot recommend Lovely and Kierra enough! With them you do not have to worry about the dress buying process!!!

Kierra was the best of the best and made my shopping experience so seamless – especially after feeling defeated from not having this experience at 5 other bridal salons. Her suggestions were spot on and she was so helpful and professional. I had a major sigh of relief as soon as I started trying on dresses here, truly a night and day difference from everywhere else and my DREAM dress was secured! Cannot recommend her and Lovely Bride DC more – thank you Kierra!!

Kierra is the best! I had tried multiple shops prior to finding lovely bride and I finally felt heard and understood style wise here. They have the latest trends in dresses as well as super cute accessories. I love my dress and the service I received!

Finding my dream wedding dress at this boutique was an exceptional experience! The staff was knowledgeable, attentive, and patient. The elegant ambiance and variety of dresses made the process stress-free. I follow their recommendations to use Green and Blue Studio in Dupont for expert alterations that ensured my dress fit perfectly. Highly recommend for a great dress shopping experience!

Best case scenario: I came to Lovely Bride to try on wedding dresses for the first time and I found my dress! The shop itself is super cute and inviting and I was able to bring three guests with me for my appointment (which is the perfect amount in my opinion.) I was lucky enough to have TWO bridal consultants work with me – one was newer so another stylist was working with her in tandem. They both seemed genuinely excited to pull the dresses I was interested in and there was no pressure to try on or show a dress that I didn’t love. I felt super comfortable with them in the dressing room with me to help me into the dresses… and I definitely would not have been able to get into half of them without their help, lots of tulle to navigate! Once I narrowed it down to my top two dresses, they brought out a veil and accessories to give me the full picture. I am SO thrilled with my dress and the shopping experience was so easy and fun – I would recommend Lovely Bride to anyone looking for a unique dress that you won’t find at a traditional bridal shop. Can’t wait to come back in 6 months to pick up MY dress!

I recently had the most incredible experience at Lovely Bride DC, and I can’t recommend this bridal shop enough. From the moment I walked in with my mother, friend Janice, and friend Erica (both maids of honor), along with my matron of honor and my aunt (both on FaceTime), the atmosphere was welcoming and the music selection was top tier. While they don’t offer champagne, the BYO option adds a personal touch. The dress selection is outstanding, and Michelle, our stylist, made the experience truly special.Michelle’s enthusiasm and friendliness put me at ease. The first dress she picked out was THE dress, and I couldn’t be happier. Even as I tried on other beautiful gowns, I kept coming back to that initial choice. Lovely Bride DC stands out not only for its stunning dresses but also for its clean, hip, and inviting ambiance.Parking is very limited, so early arrival is strongly suggested. I was stressed about the parking situation. Despite that, it’s the best. The early arrival is more than worth it. Every bride seemed to be enjoying their time, creating a positive and happy atmosphere. Our stylist Michelle was phenomenal–patient, attentive, and even suggested I retry a gown to ensure my final decision.The personal and memorable experience at Lovely Bride DC led us to purchase my dream dress the very next day. I can’t express enough gratitude for the fantastic service and ambiance at Lovely Bride DC. If you’re a bride-to-be, don’t miss out on this exceptional bridal shop!

I had such a wonderful experience at Lovely Bride DC! Everything about it was perfect, the space was fun, cozy, and inviting, and they had such an amazing collection of beautiful dresses. My stylist, Elizabeth, really made the entire experience. From the very start she was so invested in finding my perfect dress. We had a detailed initial discussion where she asked my about my wedding design, the venue, time of year, and the details I was looking for in a gown. From that and my wishlist, she selected the perfect set of dresses for me to try on and every single one was such a good contender and matched well with my vision. She was super helpful with try-ons and answering all my questions and she really took my feedback into consideration. I found my absolute perfect dress and felt so confident and sure of my decision and I really have Elizabeth to thank for all of that. She even helped me pick an amazing veil that complimented my dress so well. Cannot recommend this shop enough! They are so invested in you and making sure your day is perfect!

I highly recommend Lovely Bride and the consultant I worked with, Elizabeth! This was the first place I visited to try on wedding dresses, and I ended up finding the one and returning. Elizabeth was incredible at listening to all my thoughts, what I liked or didn’t like about a dress, and then using that to pull amazing options. She is definitely the reason I found my perfect dress and veil! I could not recommend her or the environment at Lovely Bride more!

I want to thank you for the remarkable experience that my daughter and I had while shopping for her wedding dress at Lovely Brides in Georgetown. From the moment we stepped through your doors, we were met with warmth and politeness that instantly put us at ease. The knowledgeable, attentive and courteous staff truly went above and beyond to make us feel special and welcome.The selection of dresses was nothing short of spectacular. The wide range of styles and options available ensured that my daughter could find her dream dress – and she did!!!Moreover, the knowledge and expertise exhibited by your staff were truly invaluable. Their insights and recommendations were instrumental in helping my daughter make the perfect choice. It was clear that they were not just helping us find a dress, but were genuinely invested in ensuring that my daughter felt her absolute best on her special day.Overall, our experience at Lovely Brides surpassed all expectations. It was a day filled with joy, excitement and memories that we will cherish forever.

I really enjoyed my experience with my consultant, Elizabeth, and would recommend her to other brides as well!She was friendly, actively listened to what I wanted, and in the end, we found a dress I love. I really appreciated her effort to pull dresses in my price range while also aligning with the style I thought would flatter me best. In the end, it was a tough decision between great options and a lovely appointment.

I had such a great experience at Lovely Bride DC. Every stylist I interacted with was so professional and kind. They truly listened and made me feel so comfortable. My dress ended up being the third one I tried on! I appreciated how communicative the shop was and how easy it was to schedule fittings and pick-up. So many gorgeous options here – highly recommend!

Let me tell you the dresses are quality and stunning!I went to probably 10 different shops around DC and Baltimore and most of the dresses felt like upholstery and had a cheap look. Like they went to Joanne Fabrics or Michaels and made dresses. Every dress I put on at Lovely felt like the price was worth it. A higher standard, a higher cut. Let me be clear, I am on a strict budget, I’m plus sized and I’m quirky, I wasn’t sure that a Georgetown location could help me out but I found the dress of my dreams. The dress that sparked joy. The dress I couldn’t get out of my head.Love yourself, Lovely! Book your appointment here and find the dress of your dreams.

I had the most amazing experience at Lovely Bride DC and found the one during my first appointment! The team does a great job making the entire experience seamless and so that you feel well-prepared prior to your appointment. The shop is absolutely stunning and my consultant, Elizabeth, was amazing and executed perfect service!! She did a wonderful job making me feel comfortable throughout the appointment and truly listened to each thing I liked/disliked about each dress I tried on. She worked her magic and pulled the right dresses for me to try on until I found the one! I cannot recommend this shop enough!

I loved my experience with Lovely Bride! I was nervous going into my appointment and not completely sure what I wanted, having tried on a bunch of styles at other stores, but Elizabeth took my jumbled thoughts and came back with several wonderful options. Little did I know the first one I tried would be the one!! The store is beautiful and so comfortable for family and friends who want to join you on your visit, and the fact that there was only one other bride in the store at the same time as me really made me feel like I had their full attention (not to mention cutting down on chaos!)Elizabeth and Danielle were so helpful in addressing all my questions before I officially said yes–they were so patient and candid and I never felt like there was pressure from them to buy quickly.I don’t have any plans to buy another wedding dress (ha!) but if I did, I would go back to Lovely in a heartbeat.

This bridal shop is beautifully decorated, and the staff was welcoming. I had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth as my stylist during my time at Lovely Bride. She started the appointment by asking about my vision, looking at the venue to get a feel for what I was going for, and we even looked at my photographer’s website. She then talked to me about the dresses I had identified as “my favorites” on my online profile and walked me through what I could expect which each gown. Elizabeth has incredible attention to detail and knows what to ask to better understand how you feel in each dress. She listened to how I felt about each dress and style and brought in different dresses based on the feedback I shared. She was great to work with and helped me find the dress I wanted. I can’t thank Elizabeth enough for creating such a fantastic experience for us!

HIGHLY recommend visiting Lovely Bride DC when wedding dress shopping! The location in Georgetown is easy to get to and on a historical road. Prior to your intimate hour-long session, you get to favorite and choose different dresses that you will try on (this also helps your consultant get a better understanding for your style). The quality of all the dresses were much better than another dress shop I visited prior to my LB appointment. The space is small but the layout works perfectly for multiple small groups. It’s also very well decorated- something I appreciated when I said YES to my dress and obviously had to take some pictures. 🙂

When I first walked up to the shop, I was immediately impressed. The storefront is stunning! My stylist Danielle was the sweetest and most accommodating to my Mom, MIL and maid of honor. She greeted us at the door and brought us back to the most gorgeous private room. Their aesthetic is EVERYTHING! Totally my vibe, all the other bridal salons I’ve been to (Carine’s, Modern Trousseau, Nordstrom, Kleinfelds) have a very stuffy old school bridal feel. I felt so in my element trying on all their beautiful gowns, Danielle helped me in and out of the gowns and accessorized my look with some really unique pieces. She even let me try on some absolutely amazing Indie designer gowns that weren’t my in my wedding vision, but I felt the need to rule out. Needless to say I said “Yes!!” to the dress (Alexandra Grecco fan girl for life!) and had my magical moment with the people closest to me. I honestly can’t recommend this wonderful shop enough! Danielle made sure my day was perfect, she even had florist & undergarment recommendations (I mean they clearly know what they are doing, just look at the front door!!). My experience at Lovely Bride DC was just that, absolutely Lovely.

I had an exceptional experience purchasing my engagement party dress from Lovely Bride, DC! From booking my appointment, to executing my vision, Lovely Bride made what is typically a stressful process, a breeze. The store is beautiful, the designer and size selections are vast and inclusive and the owner makes sure your experience is unforgettable. I will absolutely be returning for my wedding day. Highly recommend.

Absolutely 100% recommend Lovely Bride DC if you are looking for a bridal shop. Kylie made the experience here even more incredible between her attention to detail, openness, styling experience and LOVELY personality. She was open and honest without ever overstepping and listened to everything my family and I had to say as well. By the end of it, I felt like Kylie was a friend that came to help me find my wedding dress and she succeeded in bringing my entire bridal vision come to life. I immediately shared with a friend what a great experience I had and am excited for her to go to the NYC location. The entire vibe and service is perfect.

Lovely Bride not only provided the dress of my dreams but also an amazing experience. Another store made rude comments to me so I was apprehensive to continue wedding dress shopping. Lovely Bride gave me a wonderful and FUN experience. I loved getting my dream dress from this location.

I had the most amazing experience at Lovely Bride in DC. For starters, the store itself is so beautiful. As soon as we got there we knew we were going to have an incredible experience. We were greeted by Elizabeth, who was so sweet and fun to work with. She helped me try on a bunch of different dresses and was so patient with me. When I finally found one I loved, she took all my measurements even though I told her I wouldn’t be purchasing one that day since I had other appointments set up the following day that I still wanted to go to. She did not once put any pressure on me and I could tell she just genuinely wanted me to be happy with whatever gown I decided to go with. We came back 2 days later once I had made my final decision, and we worked with the owner who was absolutely fabulous! She was so kind and professional and made the buying processes very seamless. Overall, we had a great experience here. They have a wonderful selection and amazing staff! I highly recommend going here if you’re in the DMV!

Beautiful shop, stunning dresses, huge selection, and easy scheduling process!I can go on and on how awesome my whole process has been with Lovely Bride in DC. My appointment was everything and more, especially with Elizabeth. She was so KIND, patient, fun, and relatable. I felt so comfortable with her from the start and she totally mesh in well with my sisters. Elizabeth made my version of my dream dress come true with helping me add on some fun accessories. I said yes to the dress during my appointment and the check out process was SO easy.Sad to see my wedding dress shopping adventure come to an end. Even though this was the only shop I went to and I traveled 4 hours just to come to Lovely Bridal DC. 10/10 experience and so excited to wear my dress on my special day!

I said YES to the dress at Lovely Bride DC with Danielle 11/10/21 @11am. The Sarah Seven VIVI is the dress for me! The shop is just gorgeous. I wanted to thank Danielle for making the experience for me and my family a great one. I appreciate her being flexible with allowing my two moms and twin sisters in the shop. Danielle is a rock star and made us feel so comfortable. She is beautiful, sweet and easy going which helped to make the experience so delightful. Thank you so much for your help! Even living in Vermont and having the dress shipped to my house Danielle has been with me every step of the way. Staying in touch and replying quickly to all my questions. She has even helped me find a tailor. I can not say enough great things about her and the DC shop. I’m beyond excited to marry the man of my dreams in my dream dress!! Stay lovely!! Amanda

I can’t say enough good things about my experience at LovelyBride in Georgetown!! Gorgeous shop, personalized, professional, and overall phenomenal experience. I was fortunate enough to have the owner Danielle as my consultant and I felt like she was able to read me so well and provided the experience my family really wanted that day. I went to another salon right after I left lovely bride and the dresses and service just didn’t even compare. I said yes to the dress immediately and cancelled all my future appointments, and I’m so so excited to be a lovely bride!!!

I had the most wonderful experience at Lovely Bride DC! Tabitha was wonderful at getting to know me and what I did/didn’t love when it came to a wedding dress. Patient throughout the appointment and actually recommended I try the dress that I eventually said “yes” too (I was hesitant, but the experts knew best 🙂 )! My dress arrived in a timely manner and the team was really flexible on pick up times. I can’t recommend Lovely Bride DC more!

parking guide

Georgetown is a busy shopping destination, so if you are driving we recommend you leave some time to find parking. There are metered parking spaces available on Wisconsin Avenue and two hour parking is available on the residential side streets. Side streets tend to have more availability, and as a bonus, you can wander among Georgetown's gorgeous and historic homes.
