    Wonderful!

    I used Sealed With a Kiss to alter a dress that I purchased consignment. They did a fantastic job making it fit my body perfectly. They listened to my concerns and desires, and my dress turned out beyond what I could have imagined! I was extremely happy with their professionalism and skill, and how quickly the alterations were completed (in less than three weeks)!!!

    Best Dress Shop Ever!

    I loved working with Sealed With A Kiss. They were so professional and kind, they gave me a beautiful dress and catered to my needs (being 6 months pregnant), and I could not have been happier with my dress. The value was fantastic, and they were very detailed with my fittings. 11/10 recommend!!!!!!

    Thoughtful, patient tailoring

    I live in Charlottesville, VA but purchased my dress from BHLDN in Bethesda, MD in Feb. 2020, and they directed me to Sealed With A Kiss Bridal for all my tailoring needs -- and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I visited Sealed With a Kiss later that year to begin the fitting process. Fast forward a few months and we've had to postpone our wedding, for obvious pandemic reasons. The team at SWAK was great, they gave me store credit to use once we'd figured out our rescheduled wedding plans and welcomed me back for an entirely new fitting since my sizing needs had changed from the first round. From there, Dina beautifully tweaked and cinched my dress to perfection, she created a beautiful, simple bustle, and worked with me until the dress was just right. Dina also made suggestions during the tailoring process for my second, post-ceremony dress, and added in some cups that meant the entire day was (safely and securely) bra-free, which I feel is important to note! Dina's thoughtfulness, kindness, and attention to detail is unmatched, and I feel so fortunate that I got to work with her. Sometimes, talking about how your body fits into a dress isn't the most fun, but she is an excellent confidence booster and worked hard to ensure that my dress and I looked great. 10/10.
