Stories we Love

Working with Ava Laurenne was more than just getting my dream dress! I feel like I have joined a new family with how supportive and fun the team is! The day I got my dress, I was surrounded by some of my closest friends and family and Ava Laurenne made sure everything was super smooth and that I felt amazing and beautiful during the whole experience. I also have been to a social event at Ava Laurenne and have encouraged a few friends to find their dream dress there as well! I will forever be grateful for my experience and the team at ALB!


Honestly I wish I could give 10 stars!! I had the BEST experience shopping for my dress! Brooke was my stylist and she was so personable and made me feel like the only bride in the room. I felt like she was a friend that I’ve known for years!  From the time my family and I walked into the shop we were greeted kindly and I love how festive the shop was for the holidays. I also love learning the meaning behind Ava Laurenne. They truly treated me like a princess and I am so happy to be part of the Ava Laurenne family! I can’t wait to pick my dress up next year!


Brittany is AMAZING!!!! She helped me find the perfect wedding dress and was able to figure out exactly what I wanted after trying on a couple of different designs and styles. I had sooo much fun working with her and would do it all over again. Ava Laurenne is the cutest bridal shop I've been to and it was such an awesome experience finding my dress here. Everyone makes you feel so special from the moment you book your appointment until you leave. I live near Baltimore, MD so it was a hike to get there, but it was definitely worth it. I previously went to David's Bridal to find what style's I liked and pictures for reference, but that was it. I highly recommend having at least a couple pictures ready for your appointment. Going into it, I was not excited by the thought of trying on dress after dress, but the staff at Ava made it a unique and memorable experience!


I had such an amazing experience picking my dress at ALB! Brittany (I hope I’m spelling it right!) was INCREDIBLE and made finding the dress so much fun!! She helped me explore a few different styles and I fell so in love with my dress that I canceled my other appointments this weekend! I can’t say enough good things!! (Also totally recommend getting the celebration package, the champagne and little gifts really made the day extra special!)


This is hands down the best place for wedding dress dress shopping!! I was not expecting to have such a breeze of an experience as I am veryyyy picky!! I had Virginia as my consultant and I showed her a few pictures of some ideas and she knew exactly what to pick for me!! The third dress I tried on was my dress and I felt like I was there forever just looking at it!! The way that this place just makes you feel like you belong here is what makes it’s so unique!! I will never forget the day I chose my dress as it is almost as special as my actual wedding day!! Thank you Ava Laurenne and Thank you Virginia!!! 


Loved my experience! I was very skeptical after a disappointing experience at other bridal shops. Natali was awesome and took the time to understand what I wanted. She reassured me there was a dress for me and that I didn't have to settle for a dress that I didn't want. I tried on a couple of dresses and Natali was wonderful with helping me make a decision between two dresses. I did find my beautiful dress, "Emma." She's gorgeous and I looked exactly as I had envisioned on my wedding day. I was so afraid that I would never find a dress or be able to choose one if I did.  Natali walked me through the process flawlessly and I'm so happy that she was my consultant. I received so many compliments on my dress and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.


Absolutely loved this place!! I came in yesterday knowing I’d want to say yes to a dress but thought it would be out of my budget and literally fell in love with a dress and it was within my budget!! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and my stylist Brooke was amazing, I loveeee her personality and how she made me feel very comfortable. I could go on all day with with all the things I loved about Ava Laurenne Bride. I definitely recommend, not only will you fall in love with the place, you’ll definitely fall in love with a dress!


I had the absolute BEST experience at Ava Laurenne. They were so responsive from the day i booked my appointment and were there to answer any questions i had. As soon as i walked in i felt like it was only me that mattered! We went up to the 3rd floor and it was gorgeous up there! We brought champagne and cups and ice buckets were provided. Katie helped me find my dress and i could not say good enough things about her she was perfect! This was the only bridal shop i went to look for dresses and I am so glad because i don’t think anything could beat it! I’m so lucky to be an Ava Laurenne bride   


Ava Laurenne was the 7th and final bridal salon I visited and will forever hold a special place in my heart because that’s where I found the dress of my dreams at Ava Laurenne in Fredericksburg, VA. It was an easy drive from Richmond and SO WORTH IT. The salon is gorgeous and they have an incredible selection. Everyone was so helpful and went above and beyond in all the ways. They asked sincere questions really cared about what I was looking for and I could tell they wanted me to find a dress that I could fall in love with. The next dress she showed me was on display in a higher window so I had missed it while browsing. It was gorgeous and she prompted me to give it a try and I’m so glad I did. She was a one-of-a-kind dress and she fit perfectly. I knew when I looked in the mirror, this was the one. That moment really does happen (I'm so glad I didn't settle anywhere else) and everyone at Ava Laurenne made the experience of finding her so much easier. Also, because this dress was the only one of her kind, Ava Laurenne asked me to name her, so I named her in honor of my mother, Clara Lee. I’m forever grateful for the kindness and support I was shown at Ava Laurenne. I wish I had know about this Bridal Salon sooner. The long awaited moment of relief knowing I had found my wedding dress is a memory I will cherish in my heart for the rest of my life. Like my (now) husband, Clara Lee was worth the wait! Thank you, Ava Laurenne!


I had the most magical experience finding my dream dress at Ava Laurenne Bride! From the moment I stepped foot inside the doors I felt like I was in a movie. I was gifted the VIP experience and it truly was a VIP experience. I was paired with an amazing stylist who nailed exactly what I wanted with the first two dresses I tried on! I loved all of the gifts I received and have not stopped using them! Everyone was so patient with my family and friends wanting to take millions of pictures and they truly were invested in making my experience one to remember. I am proud to say I am an Ava Laurenne Bride forever!
