I had a fantastic dress shopping experience at Cherry Blossom Bridal! The store has a wonderful welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in and all the consultants I met were really friendly. India was my consultant and she was fantastic! She listened to what I was looking for in a wedding gown (ballgown, simple, elegant, romantic, straps or sleeves) and pulled dresses that embodied those aspects as well as pulling some other dresses that were a little different from what I *thought* I was looking for in a wedding dress. She also indulged my mother who really wanted to see me in a mermaid style dress. It was so fantastic to be able to try on dresses that actually fit (I'm a street size 14/16) and they appeared to have a wide range of sample sizes.Sent on 03/15/2015
When we'd found a dress I loved, it was strapless, so she pulled some beaded cap sleeves and I tried those with the dress. Paired with a slim beaded belt, the effect was stunning.

Found my dream dress
Before booking with Cherry Blossom Bridal, I had went to two other dress shops. I found some 'okay' pieces, but because of my shape (hourglass) there was limited selection. I was losing faith in finding what I desired, and didn't want to settle on a dress just to have one for my big day. Cherry Blossom Bridal was recommended to me by someone shaped similar who found a gorgeous dress. I took the chance and made the appointment, the second I walked in I already liked what I could see. The staff (I was greeted by India, and serviced by Octavia) were quick to greet and kind to my guests and I.Sent on 06/24/2019
I was asked specifically what I was looking for with a questionnaire, and I showed pictures of my inspiration dresses.
Octavia had me go to the dressing room with 5-6 dresses she selected based on my desire. Every dress I tried on was absolutely beautiful. Not only were the dresses beautiful, I finally felt beautiful in a wedding dress. I specifically didn't want to look like a princess (or a cupcake) I wanted something sexy and elegant simultaneously.
The dress I ultimately picked as 'the one' was not one that I would pick off of a hanger if I were to look for a dress myself. Octavia urged me to try it on just to see if I would like it, when I tried it on I was genuinely surprised, it looked as if it were made for me. The shape, the simplicity and glam at the same time, the sexiness, the elegance, it was perfect!!
I tried on a few more before deciding of course just to see, but when I tried the others I kept thinking of 'the one'. We put my dress back on with a veil and jewelry and there wasn't a dry eye around! I knew this was it, I finally got the butterflies!!
I was so impressed from the selection, not only was I not settling, I was able to narrow down from a few favorites. Also Octavia made me feel special and beautiful, and she is so skilled (this appointment was only an hour!) I found my dress (and veil) in ONE HOUR!!
Ladies give this shop a chance if you are in DMV area, it does not disappoint! Especially with my ladies with more curves! I am so excited to have my dress for my day!

Best Bridal Salon!!!!
I went to try on the first time and had a great experience, but wasn't ready to buy. There was no pressure, it was fun, and I felt beautiful. they were also great about having people Skype in to see.Sent on 07/14/2019
I tried two more places, and they were miserable experiences. They didn't have my size, or left me alone to figure it out. I came back to Cherry Blossom Bridal on a mission to find my dress. There were some that I liked, but one that I LOVED!!! It was out of my price range, but they applied a sample sale price that wasn't supposed to start until next week and took $1000 off the dress, and I took it home that day.
The air conditioner in the dressing room is a nice touch, because getting in and out of big dresses can get warm. They also recommended options for undergarments. Overall, I cannot recommend Cherry Blossom Bridal enough!!
Great selection and beautiful dresses!
Finally the first plus sized bridal shop!! Keba is patient and very knowledgeable. I love her options and insight. Five Stars
Keba the owner of Cherry Blossom Bridal is wonderful, always personable and professional! I would highly recommend them for your gown, veil, and accessories !!
