About Us


I grew up in a military family, the middle child with two sisters and an older brother. Because we were constantly moving while our father served our country, my sisters and I often found ourselves playing with every little girl’s favorite toy: Barbie. We spent countless hours dressing, undressing and creating new outfits for our dolls.

As I matured, I took that passion for fashion and turned it into a business. First, I made and created my own custom gowns. Over time, I progressed and grew my business to build my own 15,000 square foot Bridal Boutique with high-end designers (and the price tags to match).

In 2015, I needed to make a change. I closed my store and sold the building – I knew that there were thousands of brides in my area that wanted more. They wanted designers. They wanted luxury. They wanted their – perfect – wedding gown, and they wanted to pay less.

I knew from my 20-plus years in the industry that every designer, store, and boutique has dozens of dresses they no longer want; dresses that are still in style, by amazing designers but for whatever reason no longer fit in their store. Thus, “Say Yes For Less” was born.

We know there are smart, savvy brides that want their dream wedding dress but won’t (or can’t) spend full price. At “Say Yes For Less”, we have over 450 wedding dresses, ready to be taken home, from some of the best and most well-known designers in the world. With the largest selection of sample sizes (6-20) for sale in the D.C. Metro area, we have the size and style for any savvy bride – from lace to A-Line to ball gown to mermaid, we have a dress to fit every bride who wants to get Luxury for Less.

Before you shop anywhere else – contact us for an appointment. We know you will find the dress you love and will definitely “Say Yes for Less!”
