Perfect shop, perfect dress!
Blush Bridal was the second shop I went to looking for my wedding dress. The first was was good and I found lots of dresses I could wear, but nothing that felt like yep this is it. So I was thinking, maybe that's not really a thing. Until I went to Blush. Right off the bat, the place is adorable. The staff is incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable. They know their inventory, they know what works for brides, and they LISTEN to what you want. After trying on just a couple dresses, I found THE one. And it didn't blow my budget. When I came back for alterations, same experience. Friendly, welcoming... they really make each step of the process feel special. They made their brides feel special! I worked with a couple different people. They asked questions about me, the wedding, my fiance. And they remembered my answers when I came back months later. I also went with Karla for alterations and she did a beautiful job, making the most gorgeous bustle for my ballgown with lace appliques on the train. She even did a video for us so we could see how to bustle ourselves day of wedding. They even steam the dress the week of the wedding, so your dress looks perfect as you walk down the aisle. Living in Hampton Roads, I heard a lot about the shops on the other side of the water. I want more people to hear about Blush because I had no idea such a great shop was right here on the peninsula. Definitely go check it out if you are looking for the one!

Blush was the first place I tried on dresses and the entire staff was so sweet and helpful. This was the only salon I did not feel ANY pressure from and that is the reason I decided to go with them. They were extremely respectful of my budget and never once made me feel like they were trying to pressure me into making a decision or to sway my option to one dress or accessory vs another. We had a few issues with alterations as I kept losing weight but they were very on top of things and my dress turned out perfect.

Great selection and wonderful experience!
I loved working with Carmen at Blush Bridal to find my perfect dress! She was so patient with me as I tried on numerous options. There are so many beautiful options at Blush Bridal. Carmen made sure that I was happy with my dress and had that "say yes to the dress" experience. I would highly recommend Carmen at Blush Bridal for any bride looking for their perfect wedding dress! Karla was awesome with my dress fitting and alterations! It was great to be able to take care of everything at the same place.

My experience at Blush Bridal will be one that stays with me forever. It was the 6th bridal salon I’d visited and I was beginning to get discouraged that I might not find the “perfect dress” and I might have to settle for something else. A few months after I got engaged, my fiancé and I were browsing through a bridal magazine and we both stopped at a page with a gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress on it. He said, “wow, that would look great on you.” I wanted to find that dress but the previous 5 shops had not carried it. I was ready to be disappointed again when I asked Christy at Blush Bridal if they happened to have the dress. With a beaming smile she said, “We do!” I was thrilled and tried it on first! Right away, my own jaw dropped at how stunning my figure looked in the dress. My fiancé was right – it DID look great on me!! My mom and one of my bridesmaids were there too and they both agreed. However, I wanted Christy to pull a few more gowns for me so that I could make sure that this was my dress. I tried on about 8 more dresses and then back to the Maggie Sottero. With that final try-on, I was 100% sure that I was standing there in my wedding dress. My best friend cried, my Mom cried, and I cried! It was such a beautiful moment and I didn’t think I was going to have it! With that, I let Christy put on some accessories and some veil options and before I knew it, I was holding the “Yes” sign up and posing for pictures. Since then, I’ve gone back to Blush Bridal for my first, second, and final fittings with their alternations expert, Karla (who is also amazing!!) and I’ve made arrangements to have my dress preserved. The dress looked fabulous on and I needed very few alterations. Karla was patient and even created a bustle tutorial video for my bridesmaids since my dress had both French and American bustles. At my wedding, people told me that the dress was magical and looked incredible. I felt amazing and so beautiful in that dress!! The price points at Blush Bridal are really quite fair and I bought my veil there as well. I highly recommend Blush Bridal. Christy and Carmen are true bridal couture consultants, the staff are amazing, and you will be in excellent hands by visiting this bridal salon!! Thank you Blush Bridal for making me look so stunning on my wedding day!

This was the only place I had really thought about going to. We had the place to ourselves, and it was so inviting. Christy let me make my choices and helped me to weed out what I didnt like. She picked a dress for me to try that I would have never picked for myself. Well, I said I would keep an open mind and so glad I did because her pick is the one I said "yes" to. Everything was wonderful...I definitely recommend Blush Bridal, and thank you again Christy!

Christy and Carmen were professional. My daughter and I went there to look for her dress. We loved their attention to detail. Christy right away found out the likes and dislikes of my daughter. Christy pulled out all the stops. She made Aubrey feel beautiful and understood her. We purchased her dress and belt and added sleeves to the dress. We did not plan on buying jewelry there but found the perfect set for her special day. The took care of all our needs. I would use them again.

I bought my wedding dress from Blush Bridal and had such a great experience! So much so that I've referred other friends and clients to them as well. The owners were so patient and caring while I was trying to find my dream dress and offered great suggestions as to what would work best with my body type. You can tell they really care about each bride that comes in and they provide quality service to not only the bride but family as well. My family lives out of state so the owners really went out of their way to accommodate us and let us have as much time as we needed to make important decisions regarding my dress and we never felt rushed. I loved my experience with Blush Bridal and will continue to refer people to them for years to come!

I had such an amazing experience at Blush Bridal. My stylist was so sweet and helped me find a couple dresses that I would not have thought to try on. The store is posh but comfortable. They have a wide variety of gowns (and sizes!!) with great price points. This is such a hidden gem - you won't be disappointed.
Joan · Married on 10/08/2017
We bought our daughter's wedding dress here and they couldn't have been nicer! The selection was great and they really listened to what she wanted and pulled several dresses to match her requirements and pictures and we picked one that day after trying on only a few dresses. She had the bridal 'Moment' as soon as she put on 'her' dress and it was absolutely breath taking at her wedding! The staff at Blush are friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. I would highly recommend them for your special day!!

I CAN NOT say enough about this fabulous boutique. From day one when I started dress shopping these amazing ladies helped me in every way. Carmen helped me find my perfect dress that I described to her with no hesitation or problem. Christie helped calm my nerves the day before my wedding when I locked myself out of my car as I was picking up my dress. Please whatever you do and wherever you are, stop in this store to find your perfect dress because I promise you will not regret it. I wish I could post a picture in this review!

SO happy I found Blush! I had stopped by a few other stores and had all but settled on another gown but thought I'd just check out one more store...just in case. I originally chose Blush since they have some consignment gowns and I was on the lookout for a good deal. Well, I went in and explained what I was looking for in my gown (I already had the shape and a couple general details of what I wanted) and my price point and BOOM! the first gown my consultant picked out was PERFECT! She even said "I think I have exactly what you're looking for" and she ended up being right! I had picked out a few other while we were there but came back to the first one and said "yes!" Everyone I've worked with has been super friendly and helpful and I felt like they cared about me. I think the boutique stores are definitely the best at this aspect and Blush is on top of the game!

I went to blush after convincing myself to turn my zipper back into a corset back because I thought I couldn't fit my dress anymore. Much to my surprise my seamstress Karla hooked and zipped it right up! (My mom wasn't hooking the dress before trying to zip). Anyways, the process after was so easy. Karla hemmed my dress, fit the cups to my chest, and added my bustle for an amazing price! I had my final fitting Wednesday, May 10th and it was the first time I had ever cried in my dress. If you are looking for a sign to tell you to go... GO! Lol

I went to Blush a few different times, it was the first place I tried on dresses and again to pick out accessories. Each time the girls were so helpful, patient, and sweet! I never felt rushed or pressured in a decision. I ended up not getting my dress here but when I had to order a belt and veil I knew I wanted to come back. Everything coordinated my dress beautifully and it arrived timely. The shop is adorable as well. Definitely pay them a visit!

Blush was an all around amazing experience!! I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Kelly · Married on 09/24/2016
The ladies that work here are all so sweet! They made finding the perfect dress a lot easier than I thought it would be. It was the first and only boutique I looked at. I thought they were strictly consignment but soon realized that they have a lot of new dresses as well. I am also impressed with their alterations. For one, I didn't realize they did alterations. Also, I had to have it taken in three times. They were very willing to work with me to make sure my dress fit just right!

I drove down from DC to shop for my gown at Blush, and I'm so glad I did! I booked an appointment for saturday morning. The shop called me a few days before to confirm and to ask for my size and style. When I arrived, Christie (spelling?) welcomed me, my mom, and cousin with such a warm smile and enthusiasm. She pointed us towards the area with my size and asked me pointed questions about what I was looking for. She then helped pick some great options, and carried all the options we pulled to our dressing area. She made me feel so comfortable as I tried on every dress, never rushing me, and letting me voice all of my opinions. I ultimately chose the very first dress I tried on, and was so happy! I felt like I got a fantastic bargain but with the full bridal salon experience. I highly recommend stopping in to search for your gown!

I had an exceptional experience at Blush Bridal. I arrived a bit early but they were ready for me and my group. I had a few more people show up than expected but they were accommodating. I gave them pictures of styles that I "thought" I likes but they challenged me to try different styles that I fell in love with. I didn't feel rushed or neglected. They made sure I was the only customer in the store. It was such an easy and fun process. They finally put me in a dress that I had seen (and loved) online but didnt put in the group of pictures I had printed. They pulled the dress for me based on my style and shape. The dress was even better in person and the price was AMAZING! We bought it that day and because they have a wide selection of new gown, they had to order my dress. After my appointment I cancelled the other appointments I had made at other boutiques.

Blush is top-notch! I hurriedly showed up at their door to see if they still had the gown I liked there after not really being satisfied with any others I found, and I bought it on the spot, and it was so affordable! As the wedding got closer, I worked with them to do the alterations (which were somewhat unusual), and the seamstress did an excellent job at an affordable price!

Carmen was FANTASTIC. She was attentive, got me in and out of a ton of dresses without embarrassment or delay, and knew when to give advice or thoughts and when to let us have a moment. Perfect service. Other shops (even the top rated boutiques across the water, sigh) felt too commercial. Like they were trying to sell me a dress...any dress, although preferably the expensive ones, regardless of whether they fit me or my style. After buying (within my budget) I required a bit of work (living in CA, wedding in VA) and they were great with managing and keeping me updated. I'm so glad I got my dress from Blush and really thankful to Carmen and Christy for their time!

Made an appointment for early Saturday morning expecting it to be packed, but it was all ours. Staff was so friendly and helpful, I felt like their #1 priority. They had a great selection and offered great suggestions on how to really make the dress mine with alterations and accessories. My mother even found a mother of the bride dress while we were there. I would highly recommend!
Samantha · Married on 09/26/2015
I purchased my designer dress from this shop for a fraction of the price! They also have alterations on sight! Beautiful store with great selection, prices, and customer service! I would recommend them to all of my friends getting married. They also have a section with bridesmaid, mother of the bride, and prom dresses.

I can't say enough how I loved my experience here. I went to David's and Maya's and both were a let down. Blush had amazing gowns in my price range.

Blush was amazing! I got to go through the racks and find dresses I liked first which was really nice compared to places that just pick dresses for you based on a checklist. We were the only ones there and the sales associate was amazing about showing me different options and ways each dress could be altered. She also gave me a bunch of accessories and shoes to try on when I was deciding between two dresses. I ended up getting a $5000 dress for about $1300. They even have a seamstress right next door when you're ready to get alterations done. We had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend them.
