I visited Promise for the savvy bride to look for bridesmaid dresses. Although there wasn't a huge selection at this little boutique in Bethesda, we were able to find one that all my bridesmaids liked. The price of the dress was a little more than expected. I contacted the designer store in NYC directly and they quoted me a lower price due to different costs in shipping. When I contacted Promise to see if they would match it, although their shipping costs could not be modified, they agreed to the lower cost with no problems. The ladies at Promise are very professional and provide feedback on questions and inquiries in a very timely manner. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Promise and look forward to receiving the final product.

Even though I did not end up buying my dress at Promise, I had to post a favorable review to share my positive experience there. I worked with Tania, who was friendly, professional, and made my dress shopping experience a breeze. Promise has a highly edited, well chosen collection of dresses. I would recommend Promise over Hitched any day. The dress selection a Promise is better, the prices more reasonable, and the staff are far easier to work with. As a shout out, I ended up buying my dress at Hannelore's. Although they don't have a good customer service reputation, I worked with Danielle, who was fabulous.

I had a wonderful experience at Promise...for the Savvy Bride. It was the first bridal shop I went to and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They were patient, upbeat, and best of all...they didn't put any forced salesy pressure on me! I felt totally comfortable and got the feeling they had my best interests at hand. I thought their prices were relatively reasonable. They were great at following up afterwards when I had questions. Someone would typically e-mail me back within a half hour which impressed me. I 100% recommend Promises to anyone and everyone!

The staff was terrific at Promise. Kory especially. After putting together some dresses that fit within my budget, which was on a low side. I found one perfect sample dress. However, I wasn't sure. Kory was nice enough to put it in the back for me for a couple of days so I could bring back some girlfriends to look at it. Well, that dress is now mine!!!!

They were so friendly and helpful! I will also be getting my alterations done there since their prices are so reasonable.

Thank You Promise!!!

I'm not one to usually write reviews, but the more I plan my wedding, the more I find myself reading reviews by other people and being influenced by their comments. So I thought I should do the same for another bride-to-be... Promise for the Savvy Bride is, hands down, the best shopping experience I have ever had. The women at the shop were incredibly helpful and encouraged me to try on all sorts of gowns that I might not have otherwise. They gave me very helpful and honest feedback, and I ended up purchasing a gown that makes me smile every time I think of it. It's perfect! What they say is true - you know your dress when you try it on!! It is clear that they love their job and are in no rush to have you make any decisions; they want you to make the right decision in your own time. They are all just so sweet and helpful. I also know that the women who work for the owner have been there since the boutique opened several years ago, which speaks volumes for its management. Thank you so much for making this process enjoyable!

I've had a great experience thus far at Promise (I'm buying my dress there and just waiting for it to come in). Kori and Tania were both very helpful (and creative -- they came up w/suggestions on little things like changing a bow that made a big difference). They were willing to offer their expert opinions on dresses when asked, but were always upbeat and positive. Some writers commented that some of the dresses looked "used" and I suppose that there were a few where a ribbon was frayed or something, but that's going to happen when dozens of people try a dress on, and I'm ordering a new one, not buying the sample, so that didn't bother me. Anyway, everyone there was friendly and knowledgeable and very helpful. Great experience!

Thanks! You made my day! Hi! Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It made my day to hear you are having a great experience so far! Jessica Fox

I find the previous reviewer's comments somewhat curious as my experience at Promise was far different from her "visit." The dresses I tried were in great condition, but since I was ordering a new bridal gown, I wasn't worried about the condition of the sample. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and kind, and the shop itself is very cute with a happy energy.

I also don't know how the reviewer could find the dresses "overpriced" as Promise is the exclusive carrier of the designers they feature and their dresses are not sold anywhere else in the area. Promise does not feature the mainstream, mass-produced designers sold nearly everywhere else. They feature smart, stylish, and couture designers that mostly are smaller...it is no surprise that the reviewer apparently was much more comfortable at a salon like Bridal Images. To each, their own!

I have to admit that I was intimidated by the process of finding a wedding gown. My mind was changed when I walked into Promise. I immediately felt at ease. The sales staff were friendly and creative. From start to finish, Jessica and the staff at Promise took the time to get to know me and found exactly what I wanted. Best of all they made the process fun! The care and service I received there was impeccable. Their selection of gowns were breathtaking. When I tried on my wedding gown I knew that it was "The One." The alterations were outstanding and my gown fit perfectly. I was even able to find a broach there that was the perfect finishing touch to my gown. I felt absolutely amazing in my gown on my wedding day. I highly recommend Promise to everyone I know who is getting married. Promise made finding a wedding dress the easiest part of planning my wedding. Thanks to Promise, I found the wedding gown of my dreams!
