I had a great experience at Katherine's. I found my bridesmaid dresses here, I thought they had a very good selection of styles and brands. My MOH and I went on a weeknight, maybe a Tuesday and there was only one other customer in the store so we got to take plenty of time. I think my MOH probably tried on about 20 dresses! But we ended up choosing a winner. We did not do alterations here but only because 2 of my bridesmaids live out of state and the other didn't need any changes. Thanks!

I adored working with Katherine's Bridal! They were the last of about 6 bridal shops I visited and it was like a breath of fresh air. They knew instantly what dress to put me in - and after trying on 100's of dresses, it was THE ONE that took my breath away and made me cry. They were so accomodating during the alterations period and their staff are just fun people. Prices were very reasonable, too - after being told at another store that "they don't carry dresses in my price range" it was wonderful to see the selection they had for what I wanted to spend ($1200 for the dress; another $350 in alterations).

Katherine, Carmen and the rest of the staff at Katherine's Bridal were a pleasure to work with. They are very patient, sweet and determined. I did not have one single delay or problem while I worked with them. Everything was delivered on time or sometimes even earlier. It was truly a wonderful experience.

HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for quality dresses and service! My mom is from NJ and used to be a buyer for a dept. store and we went to several dress shops in the area and she felt like they really didn't know what we were after and were not very knowledgeable. When I first went into Katherine's, I was greeted by everyone and I was helped by Kathy (as I had made an appt. with her via recommendations from both The Knot and Wedding Wire). She asked me what I envisioned and my price range was listed on the card I had filled out. I only told her a few things and she picked out about 10 dresses that were all in my range and all beautiful, however it was only 1 that won me over in the end. It was a new Maggie Sottero Paigeley and it was 100% me. Fit me perfectly that I didn't need any alterations except to have it shortened, bustled and I had little cap sleeves added from the additional lace on my dress, as I did not want strapless. The cap sleeves were created by their wonderful in-house seamstress, Anna. I only told her what I wanted and she designed them so that it looked like the dress came that way! Absolutely perfect. Only downside of this shop is the location! The parking lot is very tiny and because they spend so much time with all of their clients, the parking situation can get interesting. However, we just ended up parking across the street, no biggie. The first time I went was on an early Saturday morning and luckily the weather was bad so it wasn't busy! Great for me and my mom! I would recommend going during their daytime hours or in the evenings. One thing that my mom and I appreciated about Kathy is she did not tell you that you look "beautiful" in every dress you try on. She was able to take my vision and body type to find the perfect dress. She is extremely personable! I just loved her!

Katherine's was a great shop, although I recommend going on a weekday to get more attention. We went on a Friday, and they spent hours helping us find the perfect dress! Their suggestions to make minor changes really helped our selection, and it was no contest when it came time to purchase the dress! For being a small shop, there were lots of options at different budget levels.

Katherine's is a hidden gem. Located off a main road and sandwiched between two buildings, this boutique is Alexandria's best kept secret!! I was treated with genuine excitement from the first day I walked through their doors. I was looking for an Alvina Valenta and was floored by their large selection. Spending time in Katherine's was one of the more enjoyable tasks of wedding planning. I worked with wonderful women who gave me all the time I needed and made me feel comfortable and special. One of the best parts of my experience was meeting and talking with the lovely woman who altered my gown. She is a true talent and passionate about making a woman's dress fit her perfectly...and she made me look and feel wonderful! Their excitement and interest in my plans and vision were sincere and I feel truly blessed that I met the women of Katherine's. They ensured that my dress fit well and my choice was the most flattering that I could make. I was very well taken care of at this lovely little gem!

After being treated so poorly at Lady Hamilton in Arlington (a bunch of snobs!), I found the wonderful Katherine's. They were kind and fun and helped me find "the" dress. It arrived on time and was altered to perfection. I highly recommend Katherine's.

Katherine was a pleasure to work with in choosing my wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, and Mother of the Bride's dress. She and her staff are very professional, and skilled especially with regards to choosing the correct sizes requiring minimal alterations. I went back and forth for several different fittings, and each time the seamstresses took the time to alter my dress perfectly. They did a beautiful job!

Purchased my dress and our daughters' bridesmaids dresses here. The staff listened to what I wanted as a second time bride and showed me things only within the budget I gave them. Katherine is friendly and helpful.

Wedding dress shopping can be daunting, but definitely NOT at Katharine’s Bridal. The small, intimate space really offers a one-on-one, personal shopping experience. I loved that Katharine and her associates took the time to listen and work with me. From choosing my dress to fitting and alterations, everyone I worked with was professional, prompt and accommodating. I had a worry-free experience that didn’t break my budget and, above all, I LOVE my dress!
