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.Sent on 10/09/2019

I did not get my dress from this location only because they didn’t carry a collection I desired. BUT it was such an bridal amazing experience with wonderful staff I brought my bridesmaids back to get their dresses and get my accessories.
The dresses I put on were gorgeous and a close second place. I will recommend this place to every future bride I meet. My bridesmaids also had the best time and looked amazing in the dresses they selected!Sent on 06/17/2020

A one-stop shop!
I visited Caryn's bridal shop a week ago with the intention of finding my wedding dress and I did!Sent on 07/11/2019
Their wedding dress selection is amazing, many designers to pick from and styles. My consultant Kaitlin was patient and very friendly. I liked that she was not pushy or rushing me to make a decision. She gave me my space! Once I found the dress that I fell in love with, she picked a very delicate veil to pair up with my dress. I would totally recommend this store for any bride looking for a beautiful gown at an affordable price. They also do tuxedo rentals and mother of the bride/bridesmaids dresses. It was worth the long drive from Northern VA.
Looking forward to September to start doing the fitting appointments and seeing all the pieces together (dress, veil, headpiece) that I purchased there. Overall, it was a great experience.
Caryn's Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos's reply:Thank you so much for your review! We're glad to hear you had a great experience with us here at Caryn's!

All the best, --Kaitlin

Best Day Ever!
Olivia was the BEST! She was very attentive to myself and my bridesmaids as we did both appointments that day. I found my special dress and the bridesmaids and did not feel rushed; we had her all to ourselves! Would not want to have gone anywhere else for help with my special day "things".Sent on 02/26/2020
Caryn's Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos's reply:Hi Leeanne!
I was so excited to visit Caryn’s Bridal to find my wedding dress! Olivia was my consultant and she did an amazing job! Super sweet and very helpful with trying to pick my perfect dress, if it wasn’t for her I probably wouldn’t have picked one! It came down to my favorite two and she really helped me decide on my choice! Would definitely recommend them too anyone!Sent on 10/15/2019

Last Minute Walk In!
Caryn’s provided amazing service! After 2 failed attempts at other shops, I called Caryn’s and they told me to come on in. Olivia was the one to help me and she was so fantastic! I was so happy to say yes to the dress here!Sent on 01/19/2020

Great experience, love my dress!
It was great working with Caryn’s!! Everyone was wonderful from when I first emailed them to working with the consultant at my appointment. She suggested a dress combination I had not considered and it was absolutely the right choice! Also very considerate of budget, and a beautiful showroom and bridal experience.Sent on 06/11/2019

Best experience I could have asked for!
I had the best experience at Caryn's! My consultant was so kind and listened to everything I wanted. My friends joked that it seemed like she got inside of my mind when choosing dresses, but it really did seem that way! I loved everything she pulled for me. The entire staff at Caryn's made it such a special daySent on 06/03/2020

So Happy to be a Caryn’s Bride! Dress dreams came true! ✨
I had an amazing experience at Caryn’s. The atmosphere is so welcoming and I loved how private the experience was for me and my family. Olivia was the best consultant! She is so sweet, knowledgeable, and talented at her job. She picked a great selection of dresses within budget based on what I told her of my venue and wedding vision. ✨ She also allowed me to go with her to the dress room to pull dresses. I loved that. She made me feel beautiful every step of the way throughout the appointment and gave me the confidence to step out of my comfort zone. She also helped me find the perfect veil to match my gown! I cannot wait to wear my beautiful gown on my wedding day! Caryn’s has it all! I also love that they have alterations in house at a reasonable price. I am excited to return for my alterations and fitting appointments! I highly recommend Caryn’s for any bride!Sent on 08/06/2019

Cindy was supportive, patient, unobtrusive and lovely from the second we walked in. She did not rush us or pressure us, and she encouraged multiple try-ons and repeat viewings to enable me to chose THE MOST PERFECT dress ever!Sent on 11/19/2019

I had an AMAZING experience at Caryn's! I sent an email about finding an appointment and got a call back that same day! Cindy was able to get me set up for a rush appointment because I had totally been putting off looking for the dress. So, already, they're saving my a$$. My mother has been very excited about me getting married - a little too excited. I knew she and my sister would be a handful when we went to our bridal appointment, but Cindy knew just how to handle them. She was professional, experienced, and most importantly, she made my mother feel valid and appreciated while still finding what I, the actual bride, wanted. I honestly didn't expect to find THE dress on my first outing, but Cindy has helped so many other brides find the perfect dress, I think she knew what I wanted even though I didn't. I was so overwhelmed by the entire idea of picking a wedding dress that I don't think I would've found one as perfect as the one I got at Caryn's without their professional help. I can't say more good things, honestly. They took an experience I would've absolutely hated - going shopping with my mother and sister as a larger woman - and made me feel beautiful. Now, I know I'm going to feel beautiful on the most important day of my life and I really can't thank the team at Caryn's for that enough. They are responsive, professional, experienced, encouraging, and just overall a wonderful, wonderful team of women. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!Sent on 11/20/2019
Caryn's Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos's reply:Margaret, thank you so much for such a nice review - I appreciate thanking the team because it really is a team effort! You, your mother and sister were a joy to work with and the dress really is perfect!!! Thank you again- so heartwarming!

Every bit worth the drive from Richmond. I had no intention of getting a dress the day I went, but I found the perfect one for the perfect price. It was the second dress they pulled for me and nothing else compared. Awesome staff and great selection for affordable prices. I also love that all of the alterations are one flat cost! Highly recommend!Sent on 12/02/2018

A Wonderful Experience
Today was such a wonderful experience. I only went to look at dresses, not to even try them on. Olivia bridal consultant came over, showed me around and asked me did I want to try on anything. I tried on several dresses and found my perfect one. I never thought I would go for this kind of dress but once I tried it on, I fell in love. The staff is wonderful and such a beautiful place. Thank you again for helping me find my perfect dress!Sent on 01/31/2019
