Real Milk and Honey Brides


We want to show you the REAL brides who come through our door each and every day. We could show you a ton of stock photos and models – but we think our brides are rad all on their own – with beautifully unique styles all their own.

“Any Bride in the area looking for the BEST bridal experience and bridal dress will be at Milk & Honey Bride. Brooke and Diane are the absolute best and amazing to work with! You can tell they love what they do and are also experts at what they do!! I highly recommend anyone to stop by because this place is hands down the best bridal shop in the area!”

“The first moment I stepped in to Milk and Honey, I could feel the passion and care Diane and Brooke put into their business. I wasn’t just another sale to them, I was a person that they celebrated along the way and truly took the time to know. I walked in, told them my budget and what I was looking for, and the very first dress I put on was the one. I tried one more on just for fun but knew immediately that was my dress. From that moment forward, Diane made sure I was taken care of and scheduled all my appointments in a timely manner with plenty of communication in between. She was sweet, funny, and on top of everything. These ladies were absolutely fabulous and I could not imagine choosing anywhere else to get my dress. I got my veil and earrings there as well!! You are guaranteed to feel spoiled, taken care of, and a personal touch that is hard to come by. Thank you Diane and Brooke for making me feel beautiful on the best day of my life.”

“From start to finish, Milk and Honey was the absolute best place I could have possibly gotten a dress from. The day I walked into their shop for the first time, I didn’t even have an appointment. I was frustrated because other dress places just hadn’t had what I needed, and I was unsure whether I’d ever be able to find my perfect dress. Despite all this, Brooke welcomed us with open arms and helped me try on dresses until I found the one I fell in love with. It wasn’t even until after leaving the salon that I learned we’d stayed almost an hour past closing- the owners were so passionate about helping me find the perfect dress that I had no clue! They were knowledgeable, genuine, and were so sweet to both me and the people I brought with me. Each time we returned for fittings we were treated so graciously. Then, when my April wedding was pushed back due to COVID-19, Diane even called to see how I was doing and ask if there was anything she or Brooke could do to make the rescheduling process easier! They are the kindest ladies, and they are absolutely outstanding at what they do. If there’s any vendor I could recommend to all brides, it would 100% be Milk and Honey!”

“By far, the best store I have ever visited. Brooke make me feel so important to her and never let me back down from my vision. The whole store was kind and helpful and accommodating. From finding my dress, to alterations, to final pressing, I could not be happier about having picked Milk and Honey. They made me feel beautiful in the size I am and helped me to see just how amazing I can look on my special day. Thank you doesn’t do justice to these women. I’d give them 10 stars if I could!”

“I live in the DC Metro area and traveled to the Hampton Roads area to try on bridal dresses because my family is there locally. I wanted them to be able to participate in the whole experience. I was recommended to the Milk and Honey Bridal shop and was so glad I found my way there. Brooke and Diane are absolutely wonderful to work with. They are so kind, gracious, and accommodating. Their personal touches of excellent customer service shined through from the start to the finish with the whole process. I was able to have my alteration appointments done on site and they even allowed me to bring my mother in (visiting from out of state) to see me in the sample dress at a later date. I purchased my veil, my head piece, necklace, and earrings from a jeweler their shop works with as well. Everything was so perfect. I love love love the dress they helped me find. I was very nervous about ordering a dress during a pandemic and they were calm and confident the entire time – which helped put me at ease. I’m so grateful for Milk & Honey Bridal shop and all that they did to help make me feel beautiful on a special and memorable day. Thank you once again Brooke and Diane.”

“From the moment I made my first appointment, to the initial orientation to bridal gowns, all the way through putting in my order on my dream dress, Brooke and Diane have been above and beyond amazing! For someone with a self conscious view and ZERO idea on what she truly wanted, they helped guide me through their world of beautiful designers and options with only good energy and extensive knowledge. I highly recommend all brides to give them a call, especially if you want to giggle through your whole appointment and find the dress of your dreams!”

“Wonderful wedding dress boutique! I was nervous about being able to find my perfect dress. Walking in I thought I wanted a specific style, I showed Brooke a few photos and she pulled the similar styles based off of what I showed her. After trying on a few of those styles, I was not in love with any of them. So Brooke pulled a few that she thought would look great on me. She was right! I fell in love with one of the dresses she picked out for me. It’s really true when they say go in with an open mind and trust your stylist. Brooke is so sweet and fun to work with! You will not be disappointed. I am so much looking forward to wearing my beautiful wedding gown from Milk and Honey for my wedding in April! Thanks Brooke.”

“I came to Milk and Honey bride in search a perfect curvy wedding dress and I was not disappointed! Originally, I came in with my maid of honor to look at dresses as my mom and family live across the country. Right when I walked in the door, Brooke made me feel welcome and comfortable. We tried on several different styles of dresses so that we could narrow down what silhouette and style I was looking for. We finally found something that I loved but I really wanted to add sleeves. She pulled out lots of options for me to try and when I left that day I felt very good about what options I had. I came back later after she told me she had some new items to try and I absolutely fell in love with my ensemble. I’m fairly indecisive and I did most of my decision making without family or friends so the process took me a few visits. During the whole experience, Brooke was so patient with me and supportive of my needs and wants. She was never pushy and kept my budget in mind while finding dress options. I would highly recommend Milk and Honey Bride for ANY bride, curvy, slim, tall, short… any shape or size Brooke can help you find your dream dress.”

“These ladies ROCK! Both Brooke and Diane have been encouraging and super helpful throughout this entire journey. I came in emotional and not sure what I was looking for, and let me tell you… Not only did they ease my stress and make me feel right at home, but these ladies found me THE dress in less than 30 min! Great communication, fantastic visions, and they have the biggest hearts and absolutely love what they do! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much!”
