    Ellie's is the best

    I went to another dress shop before this where I was called 'girlfriend' for like 3 hours and the salesperson did not focus on what I wanted. Upon entering Ellie's I noticed they had a HUGE selection and that it's everything you could visually imagine - cute chairs, beautiful rooms, etc.

    I ended up with a sample sale dress for just $999, but I would've been more than happy to pay for a regular price dress because the lady I worked with was sooo helpful. I would recommend them a million times over for ANY bride.

    Professional and Not Pushy

    I highly recommend Ellie鈥檚 Bridal Boutique. The staff are professional, knowledgeable and tentative. One thing that I appreciated the most (which is not what I experienced at other establishments) was how the staff let me pick out dresses to try on on my own with my mother. This made the experience more relaxed and I didnt feel pressured during my appointment. The seamstress was also very talented and easy to work with. Thanks for helping me find the perfect dress for my wedding and tailoring it beautifully to me!

    Really great option in DC

    My friend got her dress at Ellies and I did as well! Really great to have dress options within a reasonable budget and I appreciated how Sky picked up on the vibe I was going for and suggested a great option
