Tang’s Bridal | Alterations | Bespoke is a long-time Manassas bridal boutique. What sets Tang’s apart is that they are a one stop complete bridal experience!
From meeting your stylist for the first time in their private, exclusive bridal studio to making your wedding dress vision come to life with Xiao-Yin with our in-house alterations, Tang’s is with you every step of your bridal journey. Xiao-Yin, an artist and master seamstress, is the owner of Tang’s and has over 25 years of experience. Her team takes the time to educate brides about wedding dress styles, so they really know the dress they are falling in love with. During alterations, Xiao-Yin shares many tips and tricks with brides like how to sit and walk up and down stairs in their wedding dress!
Tang’s has the most beautifully designed gowns by Maggie Sottero and Pronovias, and also has veils, hair accessories, and jewelry. They stay current by attending a minimum of two industry trade expos a year. They also have an inside look at their designers’ latest offerings.
Finding the Perfect Dress
Learning about a bride’s wedding is key to assisting them with finding their dream dress! With every bridal appointment, Tang’s starts with an online questionnaire to better understand a bride’s wedding to include their venue, season, and budget. Tang’s stylists also do an in-person “interview” with each bride at the beginning of their appointment. This helps settle nerves and helps the stylist get a very good direction on which gowns will be selected for the bride to try on.
Ordering and Customizing a Bridal Gown from Tang’s
The goal at Tang’s is to make the process of ordering a wedding dress a stress-free experience for all brides. Depending which dress is selected determines the delivery. Some wedding dresses are “quick ship” gowns and can come in a few weeks. Other wedding dresses can take up to five months.
When a bride’s dress arrives, they come in for a reveal appointment to see their very own wedding dress! Because Tang’s is a full-service alterations shop, they have the ability to customize the wedding dress of their dreams! Brides work with both their stylist and Xiao-Yin to order fabric and lace for customizations.
Advice on the Wedding Dress Search
Gathering wedding dress inspiration through social media can be helpful when first starting a wedding dress search. However, seeing the dress on yourself is a whole different experience! A bride learns a lot by just looking at herself and how beautiful she looks in a dress. When the sparkle in her eyes comes out – that says it all! Trusting your stylist’s guidance and knowledge will help you in your journey. Education is such a large part of the process. Knowing more about your dress from the inside out helps you fall in love with your dress even more!
Coordinating the Rest of a Bride’s Wedding Day Look
Tang’s has trained stylists both at the bridal studio and the alterations shop. If a bride needs guidance with coordinating their accessories and veils, their stylists are more than happy to assist! Accessory styling can happen at your initial shopping appointment, during your dress reveal, or during your alterations appointment.
A Memorable Experience
Here is a review left by a mother of the bride: “Wishing we could give Tang’s Bridal 10 stars! Had an appointment with Lisa today for my daughter’s upcoming wedding. Due to my daughter living on the west coast and only coming back east 3 weeks before her wedding, we needed a gown we could walk out the door with today. Lisa was FABULOUS and the salon was intimate and beautiful. Lisa was incredibly attentive and a great listener. She found my daughter her dream dress and added the perfect belt and veil to make my daughter glow. Then Lisa scheduled us a same-day appointment to get alterations started (since my daughter is going back out of town and won’t be back till the week of the wedding). Tang and Kenny, at the alterations site, were so incredibly friendly and kind. We’ve had alterations done at Tang’s before, so we have no worries that this once-in-a-lifetime gown will be altered to perfection. Thank you Tang’s for making this experience beautifully wonderful!”
