  • I loved Fabulous Frocks and was so happy to find my wedding dress there! The consultants were so wonderful to work with and let me make my own choice, while helping me find the dresses that best fit my personality and style. It is a little higher priced than I expected for selling samples and once-worn dresses, but it's worth it to find a beautiful dress!

  • Fabulous Frocks was the first place I went to try on wedding dresses, and though I did not end up buying my wedding dress here, I had a great experience trying on dresses. I was a bit nervous coming but the lady that ran my appointment was welcoming, patient, and informative and put me right at ease. Fabulous Frocks has a great range of styles and prices for wedding dresses and I definitely recommend trying them out!

  • This was my last stop in a day of dress shopping, and I thought I'd be in and out after 30 minutes of poking around, but I ended up walking out with my dress in hand! After 2 hours in a shop a few blocks away, I still had no idea what material I wanted, what styles worked for me, or even sleeves/no sleeves. After 15 minutes at Fabulous Frocks, the employee there had already helped me narrow my thoughts down. She was actually honest in saying which things worked and which didn't (something I didn't really get at other stores), which made me feel like she was actually interested in helping me find my perfect dress, not just ANY dress for commission. My only critique is that they do not clean or alter the dresses there. Some of the dresses are definitely expensive enough to merit an alterations department (or even a standing partnership with an alterations shop?).

  • I cannot say how happy I am to have found this store. The manager, Margaret, oh my god, so wonderfully accommodating. I had the worst experience at Bella Bridesmaids, pretty much nothing above a S (women's size 6) available to try on. I got stuck in a dress and I didn't want that experience with my MOH. Margaret emailed me the list of dresses that were coming to the trunk show for the designer whose bridesmaids dress I wanted my MOH to try on, she squeezed us in on a Friday afternoon and was just so incredibly helpful. While I still don't understand why most bridesmaid dresses come in sizes bigger than 6 to try on, she made what I think could have been a really painful experience so much fun. I absolutely trust her with ordering the dresses and coordinating everything even though all my bridesmaids aren't here.

  • Margaret was so wonderful and friendly with my family, and we had the best experience there. I ended up buying the perfect dress there, that I never would have even tried on if the store didn't make it so easy to get outside your comfort zone and try some new looks. It was Great Gatsy glam and so much fun to dance in.

  • If i could give a billion stars I would. Margaret is just the BEST. She is by far and away the most helpful/kind person of my entire wedding planning process - and I was a little nutty. Fabulous Frocks is patient, helpful, accommodating and truly wants you to find your perfect bridal look. They've got an amazing selection of both off the rack and made to order and I also loved their accessories. Margaret even was able to order a gorgeous Theia veil from me from the designer that was unavailable anywhere in the US. Margaret and her team are not pushy at all and are honest and just so nice. If you are bridal shopping in the DC area be sure to stop by Fabulous Frocks - you will love them!

  • There are absolutely no words to describe the amazing service I received from Margaret!!! She is above and beyond the best person I've dealt with throughout the wedding process--patient, kind, knowledgable, responsive, just flat-out amazing. I wish I could have ordered every single thing wedding-related from her.

  • I got my hairpiece and veil here, and I absolutely loved working with Margaret! She really listens to what you want and has a great eye. I wanted a veil that was a bit different and needed to be custom-made, and she made it happen and was also really helpful in figuring out how the veil and hairpiece would work together. Every time I came into the shop, I felt like I was hanging out with a good friend who just happened to manage a bridal salon.

  • I was blown away by the professionalism and customer service at my appointment at Fabulous Frocks. I ended up choosing a dress at another shop, but it was a close call between that dress and the one at Fabulous Frocks. Margaret was such a sweetheart and did a lot to educate me and help me decide what I liked. It was a really great experience!

  • Although I didn't end up getting my dress with them, I couldn't thank them enough for their flexibility in understanding what type of dress I was looking for. Margaret was so welcoming and not pressuring at all. Highly recommend this place for high quality, designer dresses at more than half the normal cost!

  • I highly recommend Fabulous Frocks for anyone looking for a wedding dress! The customer service was outstanding. I can’t say enough about the staff that works there! I purchased my dress from them back in the Fall and worked with a couple girls, including Margaret, who was extremely helpful and super sweet! I never felt uncomfortable trying on a variety of dresses and I never felt pressured into purchasing a dress. My family and girlfriends came with me to my appointment and they loved the experience as well! I had two appointments to try on dresses in one day in the Old Town area, my first was at Fabulous Frocks my second was at another popular boutique near by. I don’t know if I was spoiled by the staff at Fabulous Frocks but I absolutely hated my next appointment and the customer service I received from the other store – I actually walked out without trying anything on, I was so uncomfortable and felt very unwelcome. Definitely go to Fabulous Frocks, their selection of dr... Read more

  • I really enjoyed the experience of shopping at Fabulous Frocks. From the excited greeting on the phone to the survey I was sent prior to my appointment to the beautiful mirrored area to try on the dresses, I loved it. Compared to previous reviews and raves from friends, I didn't find as much of a selection as I'd hoped -- but I had something specific in mind, and I did find one dress I really liked. Again, the service was wonderful, even as I knew immediately I didn't love some things and as my mom called her tailor to check on certain questions. The gowns were overall in very good condition at a variety of price points (they divide the store into sections based on price). If I needed something quickly, I certainly could have found a beautiful dress to wear!

  • Fabulous Frock's was great. I felt really overwhelmed by the wedding shopping process, and I found a list of best local dress shops around DC. This one and another seemed my style - I want to feel glamorous but not spend my whole budget on the dress! They do book up quickly, you can get a weekend appointment about two weeks out. I went on a Thursday, and it was just me and Ali (the employee), who was really friendly and helpful! I would recommend maybe checking somewhere else out first if you have no idea what style/type of dress looks great or flattering on you. Since it is consignment, it's a little different than having a bunch of similar options like at a traditional store. Additionally, they have a lot of different sized dresses ( I am about a regular ten and still had an abundance of dresses to try on), but some dresses, if you can't fit them because they're too teeny, you're out of luck. when I found my top choice dress with them, Ali was super nice and said she would kind of no...
