Editorial Review

I have to admit I was initially put off by Hannelore, the near-mythic Old Town Alexandria bridal salon. The receptionist was less than welcoming, making me wait while another woman who had missed her appointment was helped. I was also not initially thrilled with my associate, who showed me rack after rack of dresses I wasn't interested in. But Hannelore has a large selection of dresses and styles to suit most tastes as well as an entire bridesmaid department that has its own staff. There is also a tuxedo department.
