I went to the location in Tysons and was blown away! As a bride who isn't a size 2, I was nervous about trying on dresses but they truly made me feel special and catered to my needs. I picked out a dress I loved but wasn't 100% happy about the straps so they customized for me and was so happy with the final product. Everyone is so nice and I felt like a real princess.Sent on 10/28/2019

Far exceeded my expectations
There is not enough good things I can say about Elegance by Roya. I was extremely nervous to go dress shopping since I'm a bit of a tom boy and very rarely buy dresses. Jacklyn was wonderful. She had me at ease in no time, and made me feel like a VIP. She listened to what type of styles I was looking for, and even had me try on ones I wasn't sure about. I tried on a total of 6 dresses and the third one was "the one." Jacklyn nailed the fit and design perfectly, and had a veil ready that perfectly compliments my dress. And the best part was the price. It was exactly what I wanted to spend. I did a lot of research on salons, and I will definitely say Elegance By Roya far exceeded my expectations. It truly deserves the 5 star rating.Sent on 08/12/2020

We had the most amazing experience shopping at Elegance by Roya! This was my first experience dress shopping and I was worried with it being COVID times that I wouldn't get the true bridal experience but I was so wrong! We were greeted immediately at the door and temps checked we were brought back to a private area for just us with a comfy and big couch for my mom and mother in law. Paola went over my survey with me and listened to everything I wanted and pulled dresses based on that, she was easily the most attentive stylist I have ever met (bridesmaid a lot of times so I've seen a few)! I never once had to look at a rack of overwhelmingly beautiful dresses trying to figure out what might work, she just brought me one after another and helped me get into them while explaining the detailing and why she selected it for me, and asking about my bridal party and really making me feel like we were just friends getting ready together. There wasn't a single dress I didn't like that she pulled (yes some I liked over others, but they we're all beautiful) even her 'wildcard' dress was in my top 3 favorite dresses! Paola stayed within the budget I requested and never made a pricetag comment in front of the moms which I really appreciated, most importantly, she never made me feel pressured to purchase on the spot and offered to work with me when I came back to try on a dress I really loved! She even helped navigate the mother in law requests/questions, you ladies know that's a necessity! I truly cannot say enough how amazing this experience was, I had gone to a Davids Bridal that same day first and left feeling so defeated thinking if that was the experience I should expect when dress shopping I didn't want anything to do with it. Paola turned that around so quickly and I had the most amazing time, my future mother in law even said after we left "there wasn't a single time you came out of that dressing room not smiling through your mask!" and I attribute that to Paola and the level of standard Elegance by Roya expects their stylists to have to ensure a luxury experience for each bride!Sent on 03/22/2021
