It is unfortunate, but a lot of bridal stores order bridesmaid dresses two sizes too big; they must think bigger is better. We also get a lot of clients who ordered the dresses online without trying them on. Don’t worry; we can help you with that.

Custom Dresses

Sometimes a store-bought dress just won’t do. Other times, a family fabric pattern or a creative maid of honor dictate the custom-made approach. If you choose to go this route, be sure to allow for extra time and make an appointment as early as possible.


Although bridesmaid dresses are generally not very ornate, sometimes a little jazzing up can make the bride shine even more. We’ve added belts, sparkle, or trim to complement the bride’s vision or theme.

These are just a few types of alterations we do. If you can imagine it, we’ve probably done it before. If you have any questions, give us a call or use our online contact form.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an appointment?

An appointment is strongly recommended. Maria often visits other establishments during the day and without an appointment, service cannot be guaranteed. Weekends, in particular, can be rather busy and Maria might not be able to see you without an appointment. You can call us at 301-933-0288 to set up your appointment or book it online.

What do I bring to my first appointment?

You should bring your dress and any undergarments that may affect the design or wear of your dress. Also, be sure to bring your shoes –or shoes of similar size you’ll be wearing with your dress.

When should I make my first appointment?

In general, bridesmaids should make their first appointment at least 4 weeks before the wedding. More time is recommended for custom-made dresses. In general, the earlier, the better. Don’t wait until the last minute!
