    Amazing End of the Year Sale

    I had an amazing experience with William at Carine’s. I wasn’t considering it originally because I thought it was out of my budget, but my wedding planner (Kaitlin at Cheers Darling) told me to try their End of Year sale, where everything’s $3,500 and under. William helped me look through both the sale and the regular section and pulled a few more dresses that he thought I’d like. I ended up falling in love with one of the sale dresses he pulled. Since it was a sample, he gave me (and the friend who came with me) some privacy so we could look over it for damage (a minor tear, a couple buttons missing), and then came back to answer questions (could we fix this button/raise this backline/etc.). He told me he’d call me in a few months to come in for alterations and accessories, and we left with my dress. It was all totally relaxed and easy, and I couldn't be happier with my dress.

    Amazing bridal salon

    I had a wonderful experience with Carine’s! I went dress shopping in July of 2019, and my mom and I had a great time. We had our own private area to try on dresses, and there was only one other group in the salon at the same time as us. Briana was so helpful in picking out dresses in the styles I said I was interested in, as well as suggesting some silhouettes I never would have expected for myself. We ended up falling in love with a beautiful Lela Rose gown that we purchased that weekend! My original wedding date was supposed to be in August of 2020, but due to COVID we had to postpone. Carine’s was able to store my dress for a small extra fee, and I felt safe knowing the whole time it was in good hands. When it finally did come time to do my fittings, we had a great experience with the alterations team as well. At my last fitting we noticed the bodice of my dress wasn’t laying flat, but we were leaving for my wedding the next day. The team fixed the problem while we waited, and my dress was perfect on my wedding day! Thank you to the team at Carine’s for helping me find the dress of my dreams and for being so great to work with.

    Carine's cares about their customers

    The whole team at Carine's was super helpful, caring and professional. I had a great time trying out dresses there. Ended up making a special order of a dress that was not readily available in the showroom. The team really listened to my needs, responded promptly, was flexible with the arrangement and made it happen. Thank you and I am very excited to be getting married in my dream dress!
