Let me tell you that when I got engaged thirteen months ago, I couldn't wait to try on dresses! I went to David's Bridal first. Found a couple of nice dresses but was still unsure. I wanted to see what else was out there (so obviously those dresses were not "The One.")
Afterwards, I find out that a friend of my mother's owns this lovely consignment boutique so I called and made an appointment right away for a Saturday afternoon. As soon as I walked in the shop, it took my breath away. It's such a beautiful unique place and feels so *Homey.* The owner Ellalyne is so personable and sweet with everyone. The other ladies that work in the store are also very nice and have all different personality types. They made me feel like I was the prettiest girl in town. I had never felt more beautiful when I found the right dress for me.
Labella is located in the beautiful downtown Occoquan, Virginia.
Ellalyne Brayman has worked for Vera Wang. She started this shop with the mentality that every bride should be able to afford a dress that is beautiful and chic.
Ellalyne offers popular designer dresses from Eden Bridal, Vera Wang and more that are affordable for every type of bride. 30-70% off retail prices. AMAZING!
As you can see they also offer dresses for the Bridesmaids, Flower girls, Mother of the Bride, Formal and even dresses for Homecoming & Prom. I love how they sell such wide variety.
There are also many veils to choose from along with headbands/tiaras and shoes. I was even told that they can dye a pair of shoes whatever color you want.
Labella Bridal gets my five ***** star rating! My bridesmaids and I were treated like Queens and I will go back every chance I get. For all of you newly engaged Brides-To-Be that haven't dress shopped yet... make sure this is your first stop shop before looking anywhere else! Beforehand, I would definitely make an appointment because these ladies have quite the busy lifestyle.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!
