I could not recommend Carrie and the wonderful ladies at Carrie Karibo Bridal Salon enough. I was NOT the type of bride who decided on the first dress I tried on. In fact I couldn't decide on my second, third, fourth, etc... dresses tried on either. I probably went out looking... Read More for a dress five different times to many, many places. I have a vague idea of what I wanted my dress to look like, but was just not finding it. Finally I went into Carrie Karibo and within an hour had found my dress! I loved my entire experience at Carrie Karibo from the shopping for the dress, to the selecting and ordering of a veil, to the easy pickup once my dress came in. Plus, Carrie and all of her lovely ladies really took care of me. They helped me design the entire look of my bridal outfit and I felt like they cared about my day and what I wanted. Do yourself a huge favor, go and check this store out. The dress selection is unique and broad and the owner and employees are a joy to work with! Thanks Carrie Karibo Family!

My experience with Carrie Karibo was absolutely picture-perfect. I worked with Julie - she was incredible and handled my large party with ease. I'm indecisive by nature, but she didn't rush me at all and gave me some really great direction when I needed it as well. Not to... Read More mention, the Martina Liana gown I selected was an absolute dream... I got SO many compliments!! It's stunning and I already wish I could wear it again. I had no problem saying "Yes" to my dress here!!!

Best Day Ever!!!! My daughter and I, along with my mother, older daughter and part of the bridal party had the most wonderful experience at Carrie Karibo boutique! Carrie helped my daughter look amazing in every dress she tried on. Though my daughter knew right away that the... Read More first wedding gown she tried on was "the one", Carrie helped make her look like every dress was the one for her! Carrie was amazing and topped our evening off with a champagne toast for the bridal party that had joined us that day! We visited her boutique the second time around the very next day and she made each and every girl feel special! She helped keep everyone on track for those who veered off of the stye or designer of the dress. She's good at what she does! Her boutique was simply beautiful and elegant that you felt special the minute you walk in. I would highly recommend Carrie Karibo Boutique to everyone. I can't wait until next Sunday so the rest of the bridal party can experience what we all got to experience with Carrie and her boutique last weekend! The experience made my heart smile! Thank you Carrie for that!

Words can’t describe how accommodating the women of Carrie Karibo Bridal were during my visit.

Stay away! I would not recommend this place to anyone!! The customer service was absolutely pitiful. From when I first stepped foot into the "boutique" for my scheduled appointment I felt unwelcomed and very much in the way. I was forced to try on dresses in the lobby in front... Read More of people I didn't know. My bridesmaids were told they had to share what should have been their seating area with several strangers. Other brides and their bridesmaids were in a private room and were given champagne... I was given no such treatment. I would be looking in the mirror on the pedestal with a dress on and people would be walking in front of me and all around. My bridesmaids had to wait for people to move so they could take a picture of the dress I had on. I tried on 3 dresses and had enough.. I had to get out! Between the pitiful dress selections and the horrendous customer service I would never advise a bride to step foot into this place. My bridesmaids agreed that they would never want to go here for their gown or bridesmaid dresses. It is bad business for now and for future customers to treat people that way.

Walk away from this place!!! It was the most disappointing, aggravating bridal dress boutique experience out of three daughters weddings and dozens of boutiques visited. We were treated like they didn’t want us there or need us there. They didn’t have the service or customer... Read More experience as others in the Bridal District. Even though my daughter had an appointment to try on wedding dresses, we weren’t given a room and had to sit in the lobby where we were pushed aside, asked to move, and where other customers and employees were allowed to walk between us while we were trying to see the dress my daughter had on. The staff was unorganized and unapologetic. Not to mention, the dozens of people coming in from the outside door on a 20 degree day made trying dresses on a cold experience in more than one way. After this experience, I would NOT recommend anyone shop at this location.

I made an appointment and when we showed up it was like they didn't have the time of day for us. They didn't have a room for us and didn't have anywhere for my party to sit when looking at my dresses. So had did my appointment in the main part of the salon. This was not private... Read More and very uncomfortable with people coming in and out of the salon and walking around me as I'm trying to talk with my bridal party and look in the mirror. I felt very exposed, especially when dresses weren't fitting properly and undergarments/skin could be seen. They staff didn't offer us any beverages, but the other groups had it in their private room (which I was not given). I felt very pushed aside. Then, when the other bride wanted to come use my mirror in the main part of the salon (because she was having a bridal moment and my mirror was bigger), her whole party (which was 2-3 times the size of mine), gathered around me waiting for me to leave my mirror so she could come out there. Then they moved my party into her room (with all of her party's purses and wine glasses) and I finished out my appointment by going in there. My consultant did move their stuff out of there, but this was completely unprofessional. They are clearly not organized and can't handle the amount of bridal appointments they booked. If you want to go there, I would think again. They made excuses like "we're undergoing construction". Then don't book all these appointments. I did not feel special and there is no way I could focus on picking a dress with all the commotion going on in the boutique. My consultant was hardly apologetic and then would mock me when I wanted something more private. Initially, I expressed my discomfort in having my appointment in the middle of the salon with customers walking in and out and consultants/brides/friends running around picking out dresses. She basically didn't care. I also didn't feel fully listened to by her when asking for specific things and she seemed incredibly distracted.

I cannot say enough about how absolutely wonderful my experience was with the staff at Carrie Karibo, especially Sherry. She asked me questions about what I liked and didn’t like, and she took the time to make me feel special. There wasn’t a single moment that I felt rushed, and... Read More every time I asked Sherry “how will I know if it’s the right dress?” or I apologized for taking too long to choose a style, she would just smile and say “that’s what I’m here for!” I picked up my dress today, and I was greeted with a smile and hug that me feel like the staff had known me for years. My dress fit PERFECTLY. The measurements were exact and I wouldn’t change one single thing about my experience here.
