    Fantastic suit and dress. Would recommend to any family and friends.

    Carmen and her mother were very warm with the both of us. They even gave my now wife two earrings and the dress she wore as well as my suit looked great!

    Magical!

    I went in 2 and a half weeks before my spontaneous wedding and Carmen picked a couple dresses for me and I tried them all on and fell in love with the first one. All dresses come with a veil and a headpiece, she also gifted jewelry. I only had to buy shoes. Carmens energy was upbeat and positive which I really needed at the time I had no hope myself with it being last minute. Her mother was so sweet and had spot on alterations. This whole process with them was so smooth. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
