When looking for my wedding gown, I found the staff at Katherine's to be unhelpful, opinionated, rushing, and inflexible. There selection and sizing were both small for the average bride. Most of all, I was aggrieved by their cagey attitude, especially with not allowing me to take photographs so I could see how the dress photographed and share with my mother and bridesmaids who live in different parts of the world.

Katherine's Bridal is simply amazing. I was put into an unfavorable situation by the bridal salon I bought my dress from and Katherine and her team came to my rescue and saved my wedding dress. The seamstress team worked a miracle to make my dress fit perfectly ( they had to take 8 inches off the dress). I could not be happier with the results and service. They provide high quality products and services. I would highly recommend to anyone to set up an appointment at Katherine's Bridal!

Feel free to go here to get advice on choosing a dress, the shop is small and you get good attention during the selection process. Purchasing a dress from them however, worst decision of my life. They refused to fit the dress to my body, telling me to bend to their expertise. I spent my whole wedding pulling the dress up, in an attempt to keep my chest from showing. It was also 2 sizes to big everywhere else. All the pictures from guests make me look huge, I hope I'm an exception but from what I can tell they do not care about the quality of service they give once they have your money.

Katherine was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. The dresses were also exceptionally beautiful. What really stood out to me were the two ladies I predominantly ended up working with for all of my dress fittings, Mary and Anna. They were just WONDERFUl! So very helpful and genuinely fun!

This was the most AMAZING experience ever! I've been to many bridal shops in my area and this is by far the most welcoming and homey feeling you will ever get! They show you dresses YOU feel are best first. Then they gently insert their professional opinion and experiences if needed. They give you time to be in the dress and get "the feel" for it. Then when you are ready they will take you back in to try on another. I would recommend this bridal bouquet to any and everyone who wants someone that cares about them.

I had such a great experience at Katherine's. I went to 1 other boutique before I came here. I had a horrible experience there and did not want to go back. I happened to call one Saturday to see if I'd be able to look at dresses, Katherine answered the phone and said, "of course." I then asked if they had time, would I be able to try some dresses on? Katherine said, "sure come on in." I was not expecting this. Especially since I just came from a shop hoping to try on dresses, only to be told I could come in a week later. ( I am not one to just show up wanting to be seen. But, this shop never answered the phone or responded to my emails.) I had no idea where to start with dresses. Katherine asked what I liked, took a look at me for a few moments, and said, "I know what you might like." She picked out 5 dresses that I loved. But, the first dress she picked was THE ONE. Both my mom and I knew it would be, so we saved it for last. She was spot on! We loved the dress! The whole process of scheduling fittings was easy and flexible. I am so thankful for this shop. I received so many complements on dress and veil. Thank you for everything!

This was honestly the worst possible experience any bride could imagine. I bought my dress from here 10 months before my wedding. It arrived 8 months prior. I went in for FOUR fittings. I was traveling from 3 hours away and they told me this many fittings was mandatory to get it right. I scheduled to pick up my dress first thing in the morning the Friday before my wedding. While picking up our marriage license with my soon to be husband, I get a call that I cannot pick my dress up until later that afternoon because it was 'not ready' seriously, after 8 months in their possession how could it not be ready the day before my wedding?! My entire day/weekend got ruined, as I had to cancel my lunch and plans with family visiting from the West Coast whom I only get to see 1x/ year, and had to call a ton of nail salons to change appointments for me & my bridesmaids. We show up at the allotted time to pick up my dress, and it had fabric hanging off of it, was half sewn, half ripped, no alterations had been done, I couldn't even get my arm through the sleeve (and I am fairly petite)... just absolutely mortified. I was panicked as we had already had the whole day ruined, were about to miss our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and myself, my mother, and my bridesmaids were all in tears. Absolutely NO compassion was shown by the sales associate she could have cared less that she was ruining my wedding weekend, even when my mom begged and pleaded with her she could have cared less. She finally got the owner to come into the store, and we came back, and it still wasn't ready. I was a half hour late to my rehearsal leaving our family and friends and coordinator and officiant waiting. I did not get to shower or get ready for the rehearsal dinner, and spent the whole night fretting about my dress, & unable to enjoy my time with my family & friends. The completed dress was delivered midnight the morning of my wedding. No bride should EVER have this experience. Beware!

My daughter is getting married in Alexandria but she lives in a distant part of the country. She brought her wedding gown with her in a carry-on, so obviously it was very wrinkled when it got here. We had previously made arrangements for Katherine's to press the gown after it arrived, and they did a beautiful job. You would never believe that this dress had been stuffed into a tiny suitcase. I had expected to have to wait overnight to get the dress back, but Katherine's did the job in an hour. I'm very pleased with their service.
