  • I have to admit I was extremely skeptical of finding my dress at Fairytale Brides as I have very specific tastes & was adamant about not having the traditional "white" (or any flavor resembling) dress. I had seen on their Instagram page an older post from December of a gray Vera Wang ball gown. It was still there when my Mom and I came in on 2/23. It was just meant to be for me to have the gown :) Not to mention the staff were all so sweet and helpful. Would 100% recommend!

    Hi Milena, I’m so happy you were able to find the perfect gown! It is such a joy to our volunteers to be able to meet the goals of our clients. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!

  • I found this boutique after no luck at David's Bridal. The team there was great! I really didn't expect to find my dream dress there but I DID and I LOVE IT! Everyone I've showed the dress to so far (including the alterations place) have said I got a high quality dress and they were in shock when I told them I found it at a non-profit.

  • Fairytale Brides has an amazing collection of wedding dresses for those looking to purchase donated and discounted dresses. The dresses ranged in sizes and styles and were BEAUTIFUL. The staff worked diligently to help me choose a gorgeous dress and I could NOT believe the price. $80 !!! Yes, you read that correctly only $80 which was wayyyy under my budget. It was too good to pass up. Thank you Fairytale Brides for helping me find my fairytale dress.

  • I had a lovely experience with Fairytale Brides. I was dreading dress shopping but the ladies here were wonderful and made the experience pleasant for me and my mom. Lizette (and everybody else at the store) was attentive but also transparent about how certain styles looked on me - even though the dress looked good on me, they knew it wasn't *my* dress and would tell me so. My mom and I were also the only ones at the store, so even though Lizette was the one helping me, the entire group of volunteers were very much involved in helping me find my dress. Something to keep in mind is that all dresses have been donated - there are hardly, if ever, any of the same dresses in multiple sizes like a for-profit store would have. So if you like something and it's within your budget, it's in your best interest to get it before someone else takes it. If you have a specific dress you absolutely must get for your wedding and you are not willing to give other styles a try, then this place may ... Read more

  • I had an amazing time shopping at Fairytale Brides on a Shoestring Budget! The selection of dresses is great- I went once in May and once in December and found great options both times. The volunteers who run the store were very helpful in guiding me towards dresses I might like, giving me ideas to try without ever being pushy. I never once felt pressured to hurry up, try things on faster, or buy anything. The atmosphere is very relaxed, you can try on as many dresses as you like and take as long as you like. I would highly recommend this business to anyone looking for a wedding dress- my experience was wonderful and the organization benefits great causes!

    Thank you Juliette for visiting our Boutique! We are so happy that you were able to find the perfect dress! We are all volunteers at Fairytale Brides and simply LOVE what we do!

  • This boutique is wonderful! While the selection is limited, due to the reliance on donations, they had a number of options in my plus size. The volunteers made me feel welcome and beautiful and were very responsive. I found my dress in under an hour, and I'm thrilled.

    Hi Cate, I know shopping for a wedding gown in a specific size can be frustrating and I am so happy you were able to find your gown at Fairytale Brides. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a wide selection of dresses at all sizes and price ranges. Congratulations!

  • Donna, Alex and Mia helped me find my dress over two appointments. I had previously left two bridal salons without finding anything, one in frustration and the other in tears. I was looking for a modest gown because I am a Christian, and I wanted sleeves because it was a winter wedding. With the styles in vogue today, I was searching for a needle in a haystack. They happened to have a vintage gown in exactly my size, in excellent condition, that was perfect for me. Donna and her team went the extra mile to help me accessorize and teach me about the various details of the dress. The charity component of the shop warms my heart. I felt loved and would highly recommend this shop to any bride.

    Thank you Clair for this stellar review! We had as much satisfaction as you at your bridal appointment and were so pleased to discover that your perfect wedding dress ( an absolute perfect fit! ) had been waiting for you in our inventory! We enjoyed your FaceTime chats with your Mom and was glad we could all be part of the process. You will be a most beautiful bride with a one of a kind look, and cannot wait to see your photos. Thank you for contributing to our most important charities! Warm regards, Donna, Alex and Mia

  • My fiancée and I are having a wedding a lot sooner than expected and were in a crunch to find our dresses. Within an hour, we were both able to find beautiful dresses that will make our big day special. Safety protocols were followed to a T, and everyone there was extremely helpful and nice.

  • My experience at Fairytale Brides was wonderful. I was able to find my wedding dress here. Cons: The store is smaller then other bridal dress stores I have been to. This means there was not as much variety. Pros: The store is smaller so it was less overwhelming then other stores. It was easier to look at everything. The attendants were very helpful, picking out things and giving advice about how to accessorize and alter the dress. I picked the dress I did because I loved everything but the bust line and the attendant suggested how I could alter it to make it perfect for me. The prices are great. I got a dress I can tailor anyway I want for $50 with in 45mins of the appointment starting. It's a non-profit. I felt good about giving my money to a non-profit organization. It is definitely worth giving a shot to see what they have available.

    Hi Melissa, We are delighted you were able to find your dream dress at our boutique. We are glad you felt at ease while shopping for this very important occasion. We may be smaller than others but we hope we make up for that by the quality service of our volunteers and dedication to charity! Thank you, Fairytale Brides

  • I had such a sweet visit amidst the craziness that is planning a wedding during coronavirus. Elizabeth asked the right questions to pick out specific gowns that went with my vision and trying them on was so fun! I found the perfect one for my backyard, woodsy wedding.

    Hi Lindsay! We had so much fun finding you the perfect gown. You will look stunning when the big day arrives. Please send us pictures! Best, Elizabeth

  • Fairytale brides was the best shop I went to out of 6 in the Rockville/Gaithersburg area. They were all so friendly and helpful and I found my beautiful dress for way under my budget!! Another bonus - all proceeds go to Moco charities which is awesome!!

  • Fairytale brides on a Shoestring was amazing! I was the center of attention all the volunteers knew what they were doing and really listened when I explained what I wanted and ended up finding a dress that I have never seen before and it was absolutely perfect. The volunteers gave me the name of a seamstress for alterations. I could not be happier with my dress choice.
