I've noticed that no one complains on the Internet as much as a future bride. So when a bridal store has nothing but PERFECT SCORES you know it's a fantastic find! Global Bridal Gallery was the first store I tried in in February when dress shopping with my mom. Serki was a wonderful help and even stayed open late on a Friday night when my mom's flight was delayed due to bad weather in the Midwest. Serki listened to what I told her I wanted and gave me a lot of good choices in dresses; then she gave me a few things just outside of my list of preferred styles and I found the most wonderful dress! I went to four more stores that weekend, just to make sure I knew all my options, but I couldn't stop thinking about the dress from Global Bridal. I came back a week later with two bridesmaids and showed it to them. Serki let me use the main computer so I could Skype with my sister in Denver and get her approval.

I bought the dress in February, it arrived in May (a few weeks early), and I have my first real fitting tomorrow. Serki is always so kind and comforting to talk to, she gives great advice on how to make the dress look good, and she has a very accomodating schedule. I never once felt pressured to buy something I didn't love or upgrade to a more expensive version of the dress. The dress is slightly over my budget of $1,000 (it ended up being $1,300 after taxes and such) but the quality is SO much better than similar dresses at David's Bridal or chain stores. And at $1,300 it's a lot less expensive than most of the dresses found in the other bridal stores in Old Town.

I can't recommend Global Bridal Gallery enough!

Serki and her employees are fantastic! I can't say enough good things about them. I bought my dress here in February, and everyone has continued to be accommodating and wonderful. At other bridal stores, I just felt a little like one in a long line of customers, and some were even rudely obvious about their focus on getting my money. Not here! Serki is truly invested in each and every person who comes through her doors, and wants to make your day as special as she possibly can. She only schedules two people per hour at the most, so she and her employees really focus on YOU instead of shuttling people in and out. She will even put your dress in the window if your family isn't able to come in during the day and see it!

If she doesn't think a style will look good on you, she'll be frank about it, and will work with you to find something that you will love and will make you shine. My advice: try on whatever she offers--you only do this once, and you may as well try new things! She has a great eye, and if you don't like something she suggested after it's on you, she's really great about listening to your reasons and finding something that works better.

Personally, I wanted to try on a line of dresses that were really vintage and lacy and looked really great on paper. Serki told me that she'd bring them out for me if I wanted, but she suggested trying other lines because those dresses looked best on people that were really tall--and I'm a scarce 5'3". She went through her stock, though, and pulled out a collection of truly beautiful vintage-inspired dresses (all for under $1500, and most around $1000) that I absolutely loved! I ended up buying one of the dresses she had suggested, one I probably would not have tried on without her suggestion, and definitely would not have asked for if I had scouted it online first. But it looks great on me, and gives off the vintage-inspired feel I wanted!

I haven't seen the dress after alterations (which for me were around $400 to hem 6 inches, take things in a bit along the lacing in the back, make the bustle, and add cap sleeves), but her seamstress is every bit as dedicated to making you look good as Serki is. I'll probably also order a custom veil from here, just because I love their place so much! If you live in Northern Virginia, Global Bridal Gallery is DEFINITELY the place to go for a wonderful wedding experience!

Three weeks ago, I met my future daughter-in-law and her mother in Alexandria to purchase a wedding dress. We had 4 appointments made for the long weekend. The first boutique was less than desirable. Our second boutique was Global Bridal Gallery at 623 Washington St, Alexandria. What a beautiful, elegant, and quaint salon. We all loved it as soon as we walked in. And, Serki, the proprietor, was a gem! My future daughter-in-law had found a dress that she loved at the first boutique, but they informed us that they could not get the dress in time for the wedding day. Oh No! My future daughter-in-law really loved that dress. After trying on several dresses at Global, nothing compared to that first dress. Well, dear and wonderful Serki said that she might know another boutique that just might have that dress. Serki immediately called this other boutique in Maryland. OMG! They had the dress!!! Serki had the dress sent immediately to Global. The dress was there the next week!!! My future daughter-in-law went to try it on. PERFECT!!! Now, that is SERVICE and with a smile and love from Serki. The accessories (veils, hair adornments, and jewelry) offered at Global are beautiful. Also, we only spent half our budget!!! My future daughter-in-law doesn't live near family in DC. Serki took her on as if she were her own daughter. We felt like we were in caring, loving, and professional hands with Serki. This boutique is a must for every bride in the DC area!!!

I must say that Global Bridal Gallery made our 2011 very exceptional and special. The minute we walked in the very serene, elegant, classy, and inviting store we knew we don??t have to go further. What we appreciated most is the feeling that you are at good hands and you have been well taken care of. At Global Bridal we felt that our every wish is theirs and our every worry is theirs too! It was quite a personable and memorable experience we had from start to end. I and my sister (the bride) were searching for quite sometime for that perfect wedding dress; that dream dress. We went from one store to another and from one online site to another searching endlessly for that dream dress. We were almost to lose hope. It wasn??t until we met Serki, the store manager, that we finally realized that our year long search is coming to a very pleasant end and that our dreams are finally becoming realities. Serki knew exactly what we weren??t able to put simply in words. She knew exactly what we have in mind. Her expertise is brilliant; her ability to entertain every thought and wish we had is amazing; and her patience, care, and warmth is exceptional. We were racing with time and we needed the dress within a specified timeframe and we did. At Global Bridal it was never about selling and buying, it was about us and to which we are heartedly grateful. The wedding was fabulous and the bride was breathtaking; thanks for the dress and thanks for the special care we found at Global bridal.

My experience at Global Bridal was fabulous! From the moment one of my bridesmaids, and I walked in Global Bridal, I knew I was going to find what I was looking for. Serki, the manager, and Kale had such a warm and inviting welcome. They were extremely friendly, and sincere about helping us. First, let me just say that the shop is a very elegant, intimate place. So, if you are looking for the overall experience of feeling special, Global Bridal is the right place for you. Now, the experience was first class. I knew what I wanted my wonderful bridesmaids to wear, and Global Bridal had what I wanted, and much more. Serki, not only helped me decide on the dresses, but was very efficient on making sure that my day, be memorable, and special. I have seven bridesmaids, and they all live in different states. Serki takes care of business. I LOVE IT!!!!! She was PHENOMENAL with each and everyone of my friends. They all agreed that she was GREAT! She is professional from beginning to end. She keeps you informed every step of the way and makes planning a wedding truly unforgettable. I am so happy that we find Global Bridal. I would recommend Global Bridal to all the brides, bridesmaids and special occasions etc. If you are looking for first class experience, then Global Bridal is the place for you. Fabulous Experience!

I ordered my wedding gown from Global Bridal Gallery and it was an amazing experience. From the moment I walked in, the manager Surki was very friendly and made me feel relaxed. I was her first customer on the day they opened for business, and I purchased the first dress that she showed me. She knew exactly what I wanted. Surki even helped make suggestions for a good hairstyle, jewelry and vail to match the dress. Before going to Global Bridal, I visited 4 other bridal shops and none of them were nearly as elegant, sophisticated or friendly. I would highly recommend going to Surki for your wedding gown.
