I was impressed with the salon when I first bought my dress, but even more impressed when they SAVED my dress from disaster. During my final fitting, I opened a cut on my finger while trying to zip the dress up myself. I didn't realize it, and got blood all over my gorgeous... Read More dress. The ladies were great at calming me down, and they got all the blood out of my dress that same day while my sister and I went out to lunch. Great customer service and extremely knowledgable staff- you can absolutely trust Caryn's to help you find the perfect dress AND to care for it and alter it as needed.

Most popular store for bridal gowns, now I know why

I got my bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen's tuxes, mother of the groom dress, my wedding dress, shoes, jewelry, the fluffy skirt that goes under my dress and tiara from Caryn! This store is not easily missed, and the whole experience was more than just a shopping one. I left there...

As many brides probably know, some vendors (or who ever you may do business with) can take advantage of you and your time; well rest assured that this did not happen here, and I have a few of my best friends that told me to come here and they are quite the critics, so that is more reassurance. Get your dress here, and everything else.

Loved the dress!

I found my dress at Caryn's! I'm originally from NJ, so I wasn't sure where I should dress shop in Richmond.

I decided to make a girls trip out of dress shopping. We drove over two hours from Yorktown, VA to Farmville, VA. We enjoyed the day at the winery down the road and walked the town. When we saw Caryn's Bridal it looked perfect! I also thought it was thoughtful that the bride's... Read More name was written on a board with the time of appointment. When I walked in I was greeted with smiling faces. I had never been dress shopping before this day. I had Kaitlin help me slip into the perfect dress for my day. Let me just tell you, she was AMAZING! She knew exactly what I liked and helped me through until I found the dress. She made me feel comfortable and we enjoyed having her as part of our special day. She listened to what I liked and did not like. I never felt pushed to buy anything. Kaitlin showed professionalism and knowledge on the products sold. I felt comfortable and so pleased with everything she did to help me find my dress. When I finally found the dress I loved, she helped envision exactly what I was wanting. Everything came together so perfectly and a lot of it had to do with how great the service was that Kaitlin showed us. I can never thank her enough. I also received a card in the mail written from her. I love cards and I thought that was thoughtful. Overall, I would recommend Caryn's Bridal. I still have months ahead of me and fittings to do at Caryn's, but I am positive that I will continue to have a good experience.

I had a great experience at Caryn's! The consultant that I had, Kaitlin, was extremely helpful, nice and not pushy at all.

Thank you Kaitlin for suggesting I try something else on, that was completely different from what I thought I wanted! I was extremely lucky that I found a dress that fit me like a glove and needs no alterations, at a great price. She gave me lots of great ideas for veils and jewelry as well. The store is much bigger than it appears from the outside, is well decorated, clean and homey feeling. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or choose it again!

My day started off rocky with not being able to get to my appointment at the designated time. Thankfully, there were other openings, and the staff slid me into the next available spot. Olivia was my consultant, and she made me feel very comfortable. She browsed my Pinterest... Read More board of wedding dresses to get an idea of what I like. Then, she jetted away to pull some dresses that matched my style. Every dress she picked was beautiful! Olivia nailed it! However, there were two that caught my eye. She was very patient in allowing me to try on both again. I took my time with each one. I danced a little, posed a lot, walked a little to get a good feel for the dresses. In the end, Caryn's really came through for me in helping me say "YES!" to the one dress I really, really wanted.

I had gone to other bridal shops and each one had been a different rough experience. One salon the bridal consultant and the owner were so pushy and then at another salon they did not care at all. When I came into Caryn's, it was a completely different experience. Kristin, my... Read More bridal consultant listened to what I wanted and found the gowns that I wanted to try on. She listened to my budget and stressed that we stick to it, because she didn't want me to be disappointed if I picked a dress that was over budget. I really appreciated her concern for the budget, because I truly wanted to stay on budget and knew that I could find a beautiful dress at the right price. Kristin found the dresses I wanted to see and then found others that she thought I would like. When I put on my dress I felt beautiful and comfortable! When I decided on my dress, I found the perfect belt to go with the dress. The belt was a little more than I could pay, but the manager Cindy came in and was willing to work with me. She ended up taking $75 off of the belt which helped me so much! Cindy also helped me with my measurements and I was able to buy my dress off the rack, which was such a blessing because I was crushed for time with only 6 months to go. I also do not live in Virginia anymore so I would have to fly back in for both of my fittings. The staff understood my predicament and they were able to get me into my first fitting before I had to leave Virginia. This was amazing and saved me money and time on an extra plane trip. Now I only have to come to Virginia for one more fitting and I will have my dress ready! Overall Caryn's bridal was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend them! Their staff is friendly and truly helpful! Look on the website before you go, because you can find an amazing dress for the right price! You don't have to go over budget to find an amazing dress! Also one more great thing about Caryn's is that they cap their alterations at $250 which keeps it affordable! I was very impressed with Cindy, Kristin, and Caryn's bridal overall! I am proud to say that I said "yes" to the dress at Caryn's Bridal!
