Welcome to our Blog


Hi and welcome to our blog! We are Brittany and Brianna; wedding enthusiasts, and bridal shop owners.  We love all things bridal especially wedding gowns and accessories. We own Something Old, Something New Bridal in Manassas, Virginia and specialize in custom wedding dresses and alterations. We believe that your wedding gown should fit precisely to your figure down to every stitch and seam and we work our magic to do so. We also offer our brides a great selection of discounted sample dresses, secondhand  dresses and bridal accessories at affordable prices. Our view is that no matter the budget, or wedding date, all brides should experience the thrill of finding their dream gown.

Did you know that the average cost for a wedding in the United States is $33,391! And that’s not even including the amount spent on an engagement ring. The cost of a wedding depends on a wide variety of factors, including the amount of guests, the ceremony site, the time of year, the decor, the wedding gown, and of course, the city that you decide to get married in. We are here to tell you there’s no reason to go into debt over wedding details. Each week we will be giving you, our brides, ideas, tips, diy projects and money-saving hacks on how to trim your wedding budget without losing the class and elegance of your big day!
