Top 5 Virginia bridal dress shops Where to buy your gown & more!

.Top 5 Virginia bridal dress shops


Do you want to know the one question I ask our brides?

When looking for a dress, did you buy the one you thought you would get or did you choose something completely different?  95% of our brides say that they surprisingly chose something completely different than what they thought they wanted.

This is why when searching for your wedding gown you need options!

We have seen so many beautiful gowns over the years and we are fortunate to have some of the best bridal dress selections in the nation!  With such a huge selection, we thought we would narrow it down some to not only our favorite but also our bride’s favorite dress shops in Virginia.

Hopefully, if you are planning your wedding and dreaming of the right gown, this post can point you in the right direction!

This list is not in any specific order and we have decided to update it every 6 months in case a new shop comes across our radar that offers stellar service and gorgeous one-of-a-kind gowns!

Tiffanys Bridal

Top 5 Virginia bridal dress shops

Hi, I’m Sharon. I’ve owned and managed Tiffanys Bridal for nearly nine years. I’m pictured here with my business partner and one of my best friends, Carolyn. Although I’ve known her too many years to count, neither of us ever imagined we would go into business together. She was one of my biggest supporters when, after 20 years of freelance wedding planning, I decided to become a consultant at Tiffany’s, and she was ready to help make it happen when I said I thought I wanted to make the boutique my own.

Since then we have worked together as a family and a team to transform Tiffanys, Richmond’s oldest bridal store,

from “something old” into “something new.”

Our families pitched in to help us move the boutique to the Ridge Shopping Center only two months after we became the new owners for Tiffanys. We love our new boutique, but most of all we love new members of our family.
