I bought my wedding gown at Betsy Robinson and absolutely loved the experience. I was helped by Betsy herself and she was amazing! I told her my price range and she didn't show me a single gown above my limit. Her choices were all excellent. She's very knowledgable and creative. I had a 1 hour appointment, but we lost track of time and were trying on dresses for about 2 hrs. We left after they closed! She never once mentioned the time and I was having too much fun to notice! I never felt pushed to buy the dress on the spot. They have an enormous selection of great designers, plus bridesmaid dresses and accessories. The dressing room was large and comfortable. I highly recommend it- it's worth the trip from DC.
I was pleased with the service I received here at Betsy Robinson's. I was able to search through dresses and was able to let my assistant know the price range I was trying to stay within. I did however feel very pressured towards the end of my visit to come up with the "sale." I didn't feel comfortable and wasn't sure that the dress I liked was the one...well, it wasn't. I found my DREAM dress somewhere else. I guess that rule of thumb is true...you definitely KNOW when you have found the perfect dress.
I went to this shop looking for a bridal gown when I first started looking. I was very pleased with the service I received, and the selection of gowns that they had. The few gowns I tried on were all very high quality, and the only reason I didn?t go back to the store, was that they were a little high priced for my budget. They also didn't have the Maggie Sottero dress I was looking for. But I would recommend it to anyone else looking for ideas!
