  • We all know throwing a wedding is an expensive endeavor! As a recent bride, I paid top dollar for everything from the venue to the photographer to the DJ. The list goes on with the exception of one vendor who saved me money and whose price quote came in way under my budget. That vendor is my seamstress Blanca. Blanca is a godsend to brides in the metro DC area. First and foremost, her prices are fair. Secondly, she charges you a one-time fee (she doesn't charge per hour or per fitting) and allows each bride as many fittings as needed (each fitting is a dedicated hour with the bride and Blanca). When I asked her why her prices were so low she told me it's because she wants to do her part to save brides some money. How amazing is that in such an overpriced industry. In addition to being a whiz with thread and a needle, she is a charitable woman who donates wedding dresses and gowns to those less fortunate. Don't waste your time getting quotes from others. Go straight to Blanca. ... Read more

  • Blanca did an amazing job on my wedding dress. She was very attentive to detail and wanted to make sure she got the dress exactly the way I wanted. Her prices were very affordable and I was very happy with the final results. Blanca also helped me with creating centerpieces and bouquets for my wedding and they turned out beautifully. She was able to create exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Blanca!

  • Blanca was an absolute DREAM. I had chosen a strapless dress, but had dreams of having off the shoulder, wispy, ethereal sleeves added. After my first consultation with Blanca, I was immediately confident she could pull off my vision. She was helpful and communicative through the entire process. She was also super accommodating to my hectic pre wedding schedule. I cannot recommend her enough. I will be a life long client!

  • Blanca did a fantastic job on my wedding dress that I brought her. It was about 6 sizes too big and needed some serious work. She patiently altered the dress and graciously allowed me to come back numerous times to make sure it was the perfect fit. Blanca also added sleeves to the dress and made sure that they looked natural. She also made a veil to wear with the dress- it matched perfectly and looked great. Her prices are very reasonable and she is such a hard worker and prides herself on quality craftsmanship. I would definitely recommend her and will definitely be back. I can't say thank you enough!

  • Blanca did an amazing job with my dress. She put in a corset. added boning and cups to the chest area and waist, sewed on bling under the bust, made semi off the shoulder cap sleeves out of matching material she searched for ( I would have loved to have sleeves more off the shoulder then they were my only complaint), helped me choose the best bustle I believe it was French style that made my rear look like a magical waterfall, and last but not least hemmed my dress moving all the applica’s up by hand but still kept the dress looking amazing. She has worked tirelessly on another two dresses for me and you can see her passion shine through her work and her kind disposition with her clients.

  • Blanca is just the best! i got a designer gown at a discount that I was in love with the front but not the back. She totally redid the overly revealing back! It's exactly what I wanted and she's an absolute delight to be around. I could literally just go and hang out with her. And doing it through Anthony's bridal it's the best deal around.

  • Blanca helped transform my beautiful dress into a custom work of art! We had several fittings over a good few months - but it was the perfect way to make sure it fit like a glove and allow me to make changes and adjust design! She added a gorgeous custom bustle unlike anything I've ever seen, and was really accommodating when I, at the last minute, decided to have her design and put on new straps. I love my dress! Plus, the shop I bought my dress at quoted me at $800 for basic hem and bringing it in a bit (not including the new strap design.) I paid LESS THAN HALF of that for Blanca's service, and it was top notch. Thank you Blanca!

  • Blanca is absolutely wonderful! She took my dress and made it into my dream dress. It was beautiful for the wedding and she was even able to add a sash to the dress that I had picked out from Amazon. She will always be the first person I recommend to touch up your dress and make it perfect for your big day! She's super sweet and accommodating and it was wonderful talking to her. You can't go wrong with Blanca. She's perfect!

  • Ms. Blanca Shek was amazing! I bought my dress secondhand and after I got it, I realized it really wasn't the dress I envisioned getting married in. I wanted to return it, but it was passed their return policy date. I had pretty much accepted that I was going to be married in a dress that I didn't even like, but when I went to get it fitted I asked Ms. Shek if maybe she could not only fit it, but truly alter it. I let her know what I was thinking of, and over the course of the next few weeks, she completely transformed the dress. She completely took apart the top of the dress, and meticulously pieced together bits of beautiful lace she had saved from other dresses. I cried from shock, relief, and gratitude when I saw the final dress. Thanks to her, I felt so comfortable and beautiful on my wedding day. She also made me a beautiful veil. I received so many compliments, and I'm so grateful to her for being so kind and accommodating. She is a wonderful person who really just car... Read more
