Great Experience!

The entire experience was amazing! Seeing my name on the cute chalkboard upon arrival, then being greeted by friendly staff while I filled out the paperwork asking all of the important questions was a great start. Then, I met with Cindy and we discussed what I wanted and budget. She was so respectful of my wishes. The gowns were absolutely STUNNING. Beautiful inside and out. I had been to other places where the inside of the dress was itchy or didn't breathe. Every dress I put on in Caryn's felt smooth and perfect, even on the inside. There was nothing poking me or making me sweat! After trying on several, she learned what I really liked and asked me in private if I would be comfortable going over budget by a little. She said "I have another dress that I know you will love but it is $1385" ($385 greater than I told her my budget was). SO RESPECTFUL. I told her that I would like to try it on. I fell so in love. Then she added the vail. I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world! (And they gave me a discount for buying the vail the same day with the dress deposit). The whole experience was just perfect and Cindy is AMAZING.

This is your go-to dress shop!

I would definitely recommend Caryns to shop for your wedding dress! The store is beautiful and their dress options are gorgeous. I was so blessed to have Latrice help me find my dream dress! I could not have asked for a better experience. She listened to exactly what I wanted but also giving me different options too so I could decide exactly what style I wanted for my dress. And I said yes to my third dress! If you are going to Caryns definitely ask for Latrice! She is a sweetheart who is knowledgeable, professional, and a good time! I can not wait for my actual dress to arrive!

Love Caryn’s!

I had an AMAZING experience at Caryn’s! They have a huge selection of beautiful dresses in a variety of sample sizes. I had such a hard time deciding because there were so many fabulous options! My consultant, Olivia, was so patient and helpful with making recommendations that matched the style I was looking for and showing me the different options available for the dresses. She made the whole process easy and fun, and she is truly invested in making sure you find your perfect dress! I absolutely cannot wait to wear the dress I chose!

Caryn's Bridals does a wonderful job finding "hip" gowns and has a great selection! All of the ladies are very helpful and accommodating. In historic downtown Farmville, it's a fantastic place to come for a day trip and shop for brides who are out of the area. Their store has really changed over the past decade, and they have really kept up with the trends. Their selection of "mothers" dresses [or even second wedding gowns] is unbelievable and they are a great one stop shop for your bridal party!!! We've never had a bride who didn't enjoy their experience there and they appreciate how the girls know them by name!

Excellent staff. A beautiful selection. My experience at Caryn's was wonderful. The staff saw me on short notice and choose beautiful gowns for me to try. My gown is/was exquisite. People are still talking about it. Caryn's also found my mother a dress on very short notice. Everything was perfect for her, right down to her shoes. Kudos, Ladies!
