"I absolutely love Sealed with a Kiss, my dress was perfection and I also used them to make alterations. From the moment I saw my dress it was just what I had dreamed about and they made sure that it fit perfectly to my petite body. I had so many compliments all day and night long about how the fit of the dress and the gorgeous lace it was dream come true!"

"Jessica was our consultant for this visit and she was wonderful! She helped me find the perfect dress and I would definitely recommend Sealed with a Kiss! They were always so helpful when we went in for fittings too and even did a last minute alteration when i felt like my dress just didn't fit the way I wanted it to. "

"Absolutely loved my wedding dress from these ladies. They were super easy to work with, and they helped me create the vision that I wanted for my wedding dress by taking a gown with straps and then modifying it to be strapless. "

"After looking at many bridal shops for my perfect dress, I stumbled upon Sealed with a Kiss and fell in love with not only their dresses but their personable service from the minute I entered. Unlike many other salons, they allowed me to try on dresses with no pressure and I was able to find 3 I loved on my first visit. Jessica and Jenny were such a big help to me! I returned with family support and picked the one! Alterations were made and my dress was the most beautiful dress and I couldn't be more thankful to the whole team at Sealed with a Kiss! "

"I couldn't beat the convenience of Sealed with a Kiss. I actually found my dress at the Richmond location- after trying on numerous pretty dresses, Jessica was able to understand what I was looking for and pulled "the one" off the rack- and it was perfect!!! I couldn't have been happier with my dress!! It was custom made to my measurements which saved me a lot of money in the end. However, I was a little surprised by the alterations for the bustle. It had to go a few times as we needed to add extra bustles (which I was surprised she didn't anticipate the number of bustle points she would need from the start), and in the end one of the attachments (she used ribbons) undid and came off. Luckily you couldn't tell in photos but I was disappointed after the amount of money I had paid for her to sew ribbons on the outside of the dress, only for it to not stay put. "

"Sealed with a Kiss made buying my wedding dress so simple. I even added custom details to the dress about 2 weeks prior and they had no issue accommodating my request. The end result was an amazing gown that I will never forget. The customer service especially by Susan was above and beyond!"

"AMAZING bridal shop with a variety of gorgeous gowns and superb customer service! Every time I called or went into the shop, they treated me well (even when I had silly questions about my dress) SO happy I found the dress of my dreams! Love the location of the store and the size of the store, makes it more intimate and cozy! Timing on alterations was perfect too!"

"Great to work with on our bridesmaid dresses! They helped me keep on track when we should be ordering the dresses to have them shipped it time. My MOH had a great time trying dresses on and they were so helpful finding what we wanted. "

"The consultant Jessica and the owner were fab-u-lous! They were both so wonderful and helped me say yes to the dress! Alterations went great, and they also customized my dress to my liking. If you want a unique couture dress without totally breaking the bank, then I would go to Sealed with a Kiss!"

"They were professional and knowledgeable. The store had a great selection! They carry some designer dresses that you can't find at other more commercial shops, at pretty affordable prices. They have a wonderful seamstress who does a fantastic job with bustles, and is quick too! She will try to help you save money, too, and will not do alterations that are unnecessary. They are great!"

"Susan is a doll. Forever helpful and great at her job. I even told a friend of mine to buy her gown there for her upcoming wedding. I trust the Sealed with a Kiss team. And the dresses are amazing."

"I've walked past Sealed With A Kiss on the Downtown Mall so many times, I knew they would be one of my first stops when it became time to look for my wedding dress. The shop is small, but they have a great selection and it's nice that there are only 1 or 2 appointments at a time. My consultant, Jessica, let me try on as many dresses as I wanted and never pressured me into buying anything that I wasn't 100% sure about. I never had that "Say Yes To The Dress" moment, but after trying on dresses at other shops I came back to a Watters dress that I had first tried on at SWAK and felt it was the one. Ordering was very easy and my dress came around the time they said it would, and we set up an alterations appointment soon after. I was a little worried about this since the owner, Susan, does the alterations and they have just opened another location in Richmond. I think she might be spreading herself a little too thin, going back and forth between the 2 stores. I also wish they had room to hold the dresses after they come in, but before alterations as it was hard to find room for it in my home. Overall, I was happy with my experience with SWAK and I recommend them to others!"

"I certainly didn't think I would find my dream dress in Charlottesville, much less the first one I tried on. My friends were in town for the holiday so we went together, just for the experience, but not expecting anything. I found exactly what I was looking for and the ladies in the shop were very friendly and helpful."
