Susan and Jessica were wonderful in helping me decide on my perfect wedding dress!! They were very flexible with me and my work schedule, more than helpful when I tried my dress on, and very professional with answering any questions I had. Thank you ladies so much!!Sent on 10/26/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thanks so much, Millie!! You look stunning in your dress and we can't wait to see photos from the big day!

I had a wonderful experience shopping for my wedding gown. I tried on several beautiful gowns. The 1st one I tried on was the gown I purchased. I fell in love with it. I tried on a few of the gowns twice to make sure I had the one for me. The attendant was helpful, positive and patient. Thank you for making my dream gown a reality.Sent on 09/15/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thanks for the positive feedback, Amanda! We're so glad you found your gown with us :) Congratulations again, and we look forward to seeing your wedding photos!

I had the best experience here! First of all, the shop is lovely and just a very cozy happy space. Next, the dresses. Such a great selection - I was able to try on a whole range of styles that I loved. Jessica, who was my helper, was fabulous! She made me feel comfortable and beautiful, and had great insights and suggestions. I found a dress I loved except for one problem - it was strapless and I wanted a little off the shoulder sleeve. No problem, she said, sleeves can be added! She whipped up some lace sleeves on the spot, pinned them on so I would see what it looked like, and I fell completely in love. Without her help and knowledge, I would have probably ruled out my perfect dress! Although she could tell I was in love with the dress, she did not pressure me or make it feel like a sale at all. I came to the decision on my own and she just seemed super excited for me and immediately popped the champagne! It was definitely one of the happiest and most special experiences ever!Sent on 08/31/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Katie, this has to be one of the sweetest reviews we've ever received. Thank you so much! We're genuinely so excited for you and can't wait for your dress to arrive!

I had my appointment with Jessica and she was amazing! So kind and easy going. Also realistic in what looked good and what didn’t. Not a huge selection, but wonderful experience.Sent on 07/17/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you Sarah! We're so happy you're a Sealed With A Kiss bride!
Zara · Married on 12/22/2018
I came here several years ago with a friend and had a great experience, even though she got a dress elsewhere. I recently got engaged and knew I had to come here! The very first dress I tried on was THE DRESS and I couldn’t be happier. The service was wonderful- as anticipated- and I am just so pleased. Thank you!Sent on 07/19/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thanks so much Zara! We're so happy you had a great experience then, and now. And even happier that you found the perfect dress! It was meant to be :)

Jessica at Sealed With A Kiss was everything you'd want from a consultant when shopping for a wedding gown! Not only did she help me find a beautiful gown (which meant coming back right before the store was about to close) but she was patient and understanding. She helped make the experience special without being over the top! She listened and within minutes knew the kind of girl I was and helped me find my dress - which was NOTHING like what I was originally looking for but was stunning and 100% perfect. Being patient and understanding can be challenging with any bride but especially one that lives 482 miles away. I had just gotten engaged a week before Christmas and was in town visiting my parents for the holiday. To celebrate the engagement, my mom and I went dress shopping. Not thinking I would find my actual dress, Jessica helped me put it all together and figure out how to get it back home! But it wasn't just Jessica that was amazing. When I picked up my gown a few months later, the team helped me find the perfect veil to match my dress and even helped me disguise my gown by stuffing the bag with extra fabric so my husband couldn't tell the dress' really 'poofy-ness' as we drove the dress home to Rochester, NY.Sent on 09/17/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Jennifer, thank you so much for the incredible review! It was such a pleasure helping you find your dream dress, and we're so honored to have played such an important role in your wedding. We're so lucky to have amazing brides like you. Wishing you and your husband a lifetime of happiness!
Anne · Married on 07/25/2018
Jessica was very helpful. My mom couldn’t be there with me but wanted to see the dresses so Jessica held up the phone the whole time so I could try on the dresses and show my mom over FaceTime. Thanks for going the extra mile. After I picked the dress they offered to make all the edits to the dress that I wanted to make it perfect to match my vision. Thanks so much.Sent on 03/10/2018
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you so much, Anne!! I'm so glad your mom could be involved! Can't wait to see how stunning you will be in your wedding photos :)

Briana · Married on 11/12/2017
The S.W.A.K. team was amazing! I went to their shop apprehensive about finding a dress and Nancy was able to help me find my DREAM dress. She kept in mind my budget and what i was looking for. She was super friendly and made me feel comfortable and excited about saying yes. After I got my dress i also got my bridesmaids dresses through the shop. Susan was sooo on top of my dress order and was able to help me get my dresses in time for my bachelorette weekend which was super important because all my bridesmaids were out of town. Alterations were a breeze and i was even able to switch up my original veil no problem! I LOVED working with the S.W.A.K. team. Super friendly, professional, and top notch!Sent on 12/03/2017
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you for the wonderful words. It was a pleasure working with you and your bridal party.

Riley · Married on 10/27/2017
I found the dress of my dreams in one day! I went to the Richmond location on Black Friday, so you can imagine how busy it was. Susan was so patient, and went above and beyond to make sure my family and I felt comfortable. She was even willing to stay up all night to complete my dress alterations. I highly recommend Sealed with a Kiss.Sent on 12/06/2016
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you so much, Riley! It was an honor helping you choose your dream wedding dress! Best wishes :)
margaret · Married on 10/21/2017
When I got engaged, I had in mind what exactly I wanted my wedding dress to look like. I had been to a few bridal stores and had been unable to find what it was. I went into Sealed with a Kiss, tried on a dress that was close but not quite it and Susan offered to design what I had in mind.... IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! It was so much fun watching the dress come to life! (although a little nerve wracking since I couldn't see it until it was made!). Throughout the whole process she was very responsive and changed things based on my preferences. At the very end, she even added things at my request just a few weeks before the wedding! It was such a fun experience, I felt like a true fairytale bride and I would recommend her over and over! Not only was my dress beautiful, but the store was always getting new designs in and I loved looking at all the dresses everytime I was there!Sent on 11/16/2017
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you Margaret. It was a true pleasure working with you and your family. We are waiting to see those magical moments through your pictures of your wedding. We wish you a wonderful and blessed marriage.
Tess · Married on 10/07/2017
Great place! Jessica was very helpful but was not pushy at all, which is what i wanted. Would recommend anybody who is looking for a good selection of dresses but not an overwhelming amount of dresses. Thanks so much for helping me and my bridesmaids find the perfect dresses!Sent on 10/31/2016
Sealed with a Kiss Bridal's reply:Thank you so much, Tess! We loved helping you find your gown, and dresses for your girls. All of you will be stunning on your big day :)

Sealed with a Kiss did a phenomenal job with my dress. I really liked the features of two different dresses and they were able to blend the two to create my very own dream dress. They were able to bring dresses from the Charlottesville store to the Richmond store for me to try on once I explained exactly what style I was looking for. The quality of the fabric is excellent and they can work with your budget. The staff are so friendly and the alterations were perfect. I will definitely recommend Sealed with a Kiss to future brides!Sent on 06/01/2017

I had a great experience at Sealed With A Kiss in Charlottesville! This was my first time trying on wedding gowns and it went better than I could have ever imagined. I went there with the mindset of just trying on dresses and seeing what style I liked, but of course I fell in love with the first dress I put on and ended up coming back to it after I tried on 10+ more gowns (and got it!!). They were very mindful of my budget and what I was looking for! The ladies at the store were more than helpful and very kind/accommodating to my mom and grandparents who came with me. We even did a celebratory toast after I said "yes to the dress!" They made the experience so much fun! I can't wait for my dress to be here!Sent on 11/25/2015

Susan Sorbello designed the perfect dress for my Master's degree graduation. I told her the basic style and fabric and feel I wanted and she drafted a pattern that exceeded my wildest dreams. I am a voluptuous figured woman who still wants to be stylish, yet classic and it's hard to find what I want in retail stores at any price. She fitted my dress perfectly to my body and it looked sensational! Everyone thought it was not only beautiful, but also well constructed. It took into account my body flaws and minimized them. The dress not only looked great, it felt great, like a second skin. I was comfortable and felt beautiful. It was so well worth the price!Sent on 05/13/2017
She makes recommendations to help you make the right choices and be satisfied with the end results.
I must add, she has designed other dresses in the past, which made me the belle of the ball. She also designed a well fitting custom bathing suit. There is not a price I wouldn't pay for her talent.

I was on a tight deadline to find a dress and Jessica was amazing in helping me figure out what fit my body and what reflected my personality.
