  • Overall, I had a great experience with 4Everly when I went to buy my dress. Laurel worked with me on my budget and was able to provide a great stress-free, relaxing environment to try on the different dresses she pulled for me. Unfortunately, 4Everly has filed for bankruptcy and no longer is in business. I did not appreciate the fact that no one ever contacted me from 4Everly to let me know of their financial situation even after I made numerous calls to them. Luckily, my dress was paid for and in the store, so I was able to get it.

  • After a rough first outing at other bridal shops, 4Everly After was the perfect place to hit "restart" and find my dream dress (which ended up being something very different than what I was looking for!). Whenever I stopped in, Laurel was warm and welcoming, and as was her staff. Alterations were impeccable. However, there were a few communication breakdowns during the process. Alterations I was under the impression had been made between fittings were suddenly made by the final fitting (and were PERFECT). While this was a great relief in the end, it gave a stressed bride even more stress in the month leading up to the wedding. Open communication would have relieved some of my stress. But overall, very happy with the result!

  • DO NOT TRUST THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! If I could give zero stars I would. The owners, a mother daughter team, of this company (if it still exists) are SCAM ARTISTS. I went into the shop a couple times and fell in love with a dress. Even though I wanted to make a lot of changes and alterations to the dress that I was sure could not be done, the mother-daughter team reassured me that it would be, “a piece of cake.” Once they explained how everything could be changed, my mom and I were sold. We ended up purchasing 2 dresses (one of the reception) in late February and were told the dress would arrive from Italy in late April. By early May, I had not heard from them, and started to panic. I called them multiple times a day every day and left messages from the end of April through early June. They finally returned my call in June and told me there was a problem with production, but not to worry because my dress would be in later that week. They assured me that all alterations could be don... Read more

  • Brittany and Laurel were both so fabulous to work with! I found the dress that I loved, but wanted to make a couple changes to it ignored to make it just perfect. Once I voiced my concerns about those edits, Laurel jumped right in and was able to help me to visualize what it would look like after those + the regular alterations. When I received my dress, I was blown away! I felt like the most beautiful bride! They even sewed on beads to my rehearsal dress that had come off from during shipping (from a department store, not from them) - and they made that dress look perfect too! I highly recommend 4Everly After if you are looking for outstanding service and a great selection of dresses, plus really great prices. Thank you ladies!!

  • I've never left a review for somewhere that I didn't make a purchase, but that's exactly why Laurel Everly and her shop deserve 5+ stars.... I was just starting to look for a wedding dress when I visited my daughter and she suggested we go to 4Everly After. From the moment we arrived for our appointment, I was amazed by Laurel's professionalism as well as her laid-back nature. She was honest and fun to work with and showed us a beautiful variety of dresses with ZERO pushiness. I wound up purchasing a dress close to my home, and I was honestly disappointed that I won't get to work with Laurel! I couldn't recommend her more... in fact, if I could rate 4Everly higher than a 5, I would!

  • I don't know why those women on "Say Yes to the Dress" pay exorbitant amounts of money for their wedding gowns—I found the most beautiful one I've ever seen at 4Everly After, and it was shockingly affordable, especially considering how much detail was on the lace. The women here are wonderful: friendly, helpful, dependable. They figured out my taste quickly and found me The Dress after only six other tries. Since they do one appointment at a time in the store, they were constantly focused on finding me the right one, and it helped make it a personal and intimate shopping experience with my family. Their seamstress is also amazing. I lost some weight in the months leading up to the wedding, so she took it in (as well as hemmed it to make it the right length). It looked perfect by time she was done with it.

  • I read nightmare accounts of finding a bridal gown. I was prepared for scams, rudeness and feeling pressured. I was dress shopping alone and ready to be defensive and disappointed because I had a very small budget and disappearing dreams of having an elegant gown of quality. I actually walked into 4Everly After by mistake. I had an appointment at a different bridal salon but made an error and went here instead - by sheer coincidence the person who had a 5PM appointment that day never showed up so they were able to help me. Laurel Everly was nothing but sweet, charming and ready to help. I told her my budget and she found several gowns, some couture, that were under my price point, at the budget, or just barely a touch over. She had me feeling comfortable enough with my body and appearance where I tried on gowns I never would have considered just by looking at photos in magazines. I ended up with an Eddy K gown - pale ivory satin, A-Line fit and flare, draped, with hand ... Read more

  • Having gone through the DC bridal boutique circuit over the past month or so, this place stands out by a mile. After quite a few disappointing experiences in other Old Town boutiques, I walked in here, got five star treatment, and said "hellz yes to my dress" (finally!). The boutique itself is bright, organized, and spacious enough so you don't feel like you're competing with other brides for mirror space. The actual selection of dresses will blow you away - Laurel and Brittney (mother and daughter team) hand pick the dresses each season and their attention to detail is very apparent. If you love lace up dresses - this place has an amazing selection!!! This place caters for every body type, and if you are not a size zero you'll be pleased to find out that the samples actually fit! Most of the samples in this store fit me like a glove, so I really got a better understanding of how the dress will look in real life. And - most importantly - the prices seemed reasonable. The 10% ... Read more

  • After looking in countless dress shops, my experience at 4Everly After was by far the best experience! The woman that helped me was extremely professional and knowledgable. But the best part was that she made me feel welcome and beautiful in the dresses. I gave her a few pinterest pictures and an idea of what I was looking for and she immediately pulled out a bunch of dresses that were very much in line with what I was looking for. I didn't end up buying my dress here, but was so impressed with the service that I brought my dress to her for alterations. She was incredibly patient with me and all the changes I wanted to make and gave me great advice and options for how to alter it. She was also VERY flexible and quick to respond. I can't say enough great things about my experience at this shop!

  • Although I didn't buy my dress here, Laurel was happy to provide alterations and handmade custom accessories. Her service exceeded my expectations and can not be happier. She doesn't display it much, but she hand makes custom accessories that re cute as can be and match perfectly with your attire. She made a sash for me and headpieces for my flower girls, everything turned out great!

  • I loved this bridal boutique! The women here are amazing and very thoughtful. They tune into each bride's vision and only work with one bride at a time. No crowds here! They helped make my dress perfect. And they have one flat rate for alterations, which gets rids of a lot of detailed decision making. Highly recommend!

  • I have mixed emotions about my experience with 4Everly After. I first met Laurel with my mom while shopping for a dress. We didn't find one there, but Laurel told us that if we found a dress elsewhere to bring it to her, she would all the fittings for a great price. We ended up finding the dress in NYC and brought it to Laurel. We really liked her and her place. She is very friendly and easy to work with. My dress (a sample) was many sizes too big, so it needed to be taken in a lot. As my fittings progressed, I became less confident. As an example, at my first fitting (about 10 months before the wedding), I asked for the eyelash trim on the lace to be removed. I was assured it would be by the next fitting. I had a total of 5 fittings, and was always told it would be off "next time." The eyelash trim was still on 3 days before the wedding, and was only removed just in time for the wedding. The biggest frustration came on wedding day. My mom had arranged to pick up the dress at 9:30 a... Read more

  • I loved this boutique and it their staff. I found my beautiful Pronovias wedding gown here. I loved the staff and how they made me and my wedding party feel welcomed. We had their undivided attention, we were not rushed at all or pushed to made a decision however I knew this was the dress I wanted. As time got closer to the wedding they alterations began and they made sure that I felt comfortable with the changes. I was satisfy with the services provided and loved that I was also able to find my girls dresses there.

  • This is such a great little shop. They had a wide selection of dresses, and they know them so well. I went in with an idea for a dress and I just wasn't finding it. I let her pick the dress, and that was it. They were able to give me a custom gown with the alterations I wanted and it was glorious. I went to other shops and they were not nearly as personable. Highly recommended for the wedding dress. I also got the bridesmaids here. There was a bit of a confusion and one of the dresses came in the wrong color, but it turns out that was my misunderstanding. The fit on the bridesmaids dresses were spot on.

  • I had my wedding dress and my rehearsal dinner dress altered with 4every after. I had gone to them to try on wedding dresses. Unfortunately I didn't find THE ONE there, but I was so impressed with how friendly and professional they were- really above and beyond all other dress stores that I had been to-and they had better prices for alterations than I had found anywhere else, so I chose 4everly for the alterations. And I was glad that I did. They did some pretty major restructuring on the waist of my gown and it turned out fantastic. They also had as many appointments as I needed and patiently dealt with me as I bridezilla'd with worry and indecision one time- they really helped to keep things positive and assure me it would all work out. They were also available after I had picked up my dresses for going over the bustle (which seems easy but is actually harder than I thought it would be!). I would definitely recommend them for wedding or bridesmaids dresses, accessories or alterations... Read more
