About Us

Our Story

We started Elegant Forever over 10 years ago based on the belief that there should be something in between fancy, over-priced shops and discount bridal outlets. There should be a place where brides aren’t pressured on time and limited on the number of dresses they can try on.  And being practical about your budget shouldn’t mean you can’t find a dress that makes you look beautiful.  Most importantly, a place where personalized service takes a front seat to the rushed and snooty service found at many shops.  We believe shopping for your wedding dress is the most important purchase of your life. And we feel fortunate to be part of your journey. We are a small, personalized bridal shop and we’re confident we can help you find the perfect dress!

Our History

We have been helping brides in the Washington, DC area for over 10 years. We recently relocated from Germantown to Adamstown, Maryland (just south of Frederick). Our boutique is now located within our 100+ year old home in the Historic Village Center in Adamstown.

Our Dresses

We carry a complete line of beautiful and affordable wedding dresses. We can help find a style that fits your figure and your budget. We provide alterations so that your dress is a perfect fit! In addition to your dress, we offer veils, tiaras, and other hair accessories.

Schedule Now

To ensure we set aside the proper amount of time, we see brides by appointment.  You will find our service to be professional, attentive and courteous.  We schedule appointments in the evenings and on weekends.  We accept all major credit cards and we speak Spanish!

Fall 2016 Bridal Showcase – Kentlands Mansion

Copyright elegantforever.com We look forward to attending the 2016 Bridal Showcase at the Kentlands Mansion in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The show is September 26, 2016 and runs from noon to 4PM. Admission is $5. We like displaying at the Bridal Showcase because the setting within the Mansion is lovely and because there is always a nice mix of vendors for brides to see.  We will have several of our wedding dresses on display and we look forward to seeing everyone.

The Big Fake Wedding?

The interesting twist on bridal shows – The Big Fake Wedding – is coming to Baltimore on August 25, 2016 from 7PM to 10PM.  The Big Fake Wedding concept allows the bride and groom to experience firsthand various vendors as part of a “fake” wedding event.  They do charge $25 per ticket but it includes “light bites, a signature drink, and a swag bag”.
