All brides should start their search here! This was the first place I went to try on dresses and I couldn't be happier. The ambience, styling suggestions, professionalism and wide variety of prices make this a MUST for anyone in the dc metro region! I tried on just 4 dresses and gave my feedback to Amy-she found my dream dress UNDER budget within seconds! She also set up an appointment after hours so my mother could drive up from Richmond to see me wearing it in person.Sent on 10/06/2018

Knowledgeable and expert family boutique!
I really, really loved my experience at Zoya's. It was by far my favorite boutique that I visited in the DMV area, though I ultimately said yes to a dress somewhere else. I worked with Amy, who is utterly genuine, easy to talk to, as well as super sharp, insightful, and completely knowledgeable about every gown and every designer. As I tried on a number of dresses, Amy weighed the pros and cons of each dress with me and pointed out what was working with my body and what wasn't. She also expertly matched each dress to the perfect veil so I could get a complete look, had me walk up and down the store so I could see how I moved in each dress, and kind of just blew me away with how thorough and thoughtful she was and how much time and attention she was giving me. I got the impression that Zoya and Amy are total pros -- they don't even use clamps because they said you can get a better sense of how a dress will look by painstakingly pinning it. This was such a change from some of the other places I visited, where someone just threw a bunch of clamps at the back and shooed you out.Sent on 04/30/2019
Based on my reactions to the dresses I tried on, Amy pulled several dresses for me that I never would have thought to try on and I fell utterly in love with them. She is the only stylist to have done this for me successfully. Although I ended up not getting the specific dress I fell in love with (my family wanted something more traditional and it was outside of my budget -- totally heartbreaking), I really loved and appreciated the experience.
My only con about Zoya's is that they don't let you take photos of yourself in the dresses because their designers don't allow it. This was a serious downside for me because none of my bridal party lives in the area and my mom lives across the country. I was able to Facetime with my mom with Amy's help, but I wish I could have had photos to show my friends and to reference later on while making a decision. And, I also think it's important to see the dress in photos so you can see it from different angles, etc. So, in sum, definitely bring along anyone who is necessary to you in the decision-making process because they aren't going to see you in the dress otherwise!

Amazing, perfect, will absolutely recommend!
Zoya and her team are beyond words! I brought in my dress with a lot of lace and tulle and I was anxious about it being altered but I quickly learned I had nothing to fret. My dress is PERFECT! I didn't have my "this is the dress" moment when I tried on my dress originally as the fit was not right but after coming to Zoya and trusting the process I FINALLY had my moment, happy tears and all! I can't say thank you enough! I can't wait for our big day! THANK YOU ZOYA AND CHI!Sent on 03/15/2019
