Thank you so much for your guidance in selecting my gown. I am truly excited and can't wait for it to arrive. My experience at Caryn's Bridals was truly enjoyable. I'm so glad a friend suggested I make an appointment. Thanks again for everything! -Franka, Midlothian, VA
Shopping for my wedding dress at Caryn's was incredible. After visiting a few stores, I had an idea of what kind of dress i wanted and my budget.
The staff helped me narrow down the dressed and we ended up finding my dress!
I had nowhere to store my dress, so they held it for me right up until my wedding day.
Fittings and alterations were a breeze and we even ended up getting my Mom's dress there too!
The staff was helpful, knowledgable and so friendly!
Tori, Thank you so much for making my first experience in trying on bridal gowns wonderful. I couldnt be more excited to purchase a gown from a private salon full of great people!! Ill be back soon with my bridesmaids! Thank you Tori for everything you did to make my dream day the BEST!!!Warmest Wishes, Jessica Richmond ,VA
Emily, Thank you so much for helping me find such a beautiful wedding dress this past weekend! I have constantly been looking at the pictures and get so excited each time. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me pick the dress of my dreams! Caryn's: You are so lucky to have this girl! Can't wait to be in touch for fittings. Best, Allie
Thank you so much for all your help in preparing for Brian and Virginia's wedding. Everyone commented on not only how beautiful Virginia was but on the exquisite dress as well! And my dress was a huge hit! I think you will have a surge of customers! I have already started encouraging people to take advantage of your wonderful inventory. Once again, thank you for all you did to make this special day even more so.
Sincerely, Jakie Rothwell Charlotte County

Virginia's Fashion And Furniture Capital
Editor, The Herald: The Farmville Herald
I'm just going to throw this out there, but it seems to me that Downtown Farmville would really benefit from re-defining and marketing itself as "Virginia's Fashion & Furniture Capital." Though we undoubtedly need a great deal of help in the fashion department, in my opinion, I was encouraged by a former William & Mary classmate of mine-a young lady from Richmond-who told me she traveled all the way to Caryn's Bridal to purchase her prom gown.
Small towns are "in" right now, and a fashion-furniture "arts district" supported by great restaurants and recreational and cultural attractions like the Moton Museum, High Bridge and Sailor's Creek would really help make Farmville more attractive to tourists, as well as students and young professionals-two key demographics for thriving communities.
Places like j.f. fergeson gallery give me hope. Farmville could possibly one day perhaps possess-dare I say it-swag.

Thank you for helping us select THE PERFECT homecoming dress. I have never seen my daughter smile as widely or have her eyes twinkle as much as they did in that gorgeous Terani dress. It was EVERYTHING she listed in a dream dress and then you added “and more” with the perfect accessories. We’ll be back for holiday, Valentine’s, Prom and all her other special needs. The S. Family of Midlothian
You are awazing! You gave us the most incredible experience wedding dress shopping and picked out the most BEAUTIFUL dress ever!! Thank you so much!!

"I could not wait to wear the absolutely GORGEOUS wedding gown Emily picked out, and loved every minute getting to wear it on Sat!! (I hated to take it off!!) My hope is that every bride loves their dress as much as I do!!!"
I just want to say 'Thank You' again for your sweet patience with us Saturday. With your help Brandi found her perfect dress and her experience was all she hoped it would be. You answered all our questions with a gracious attitude and I appreciate that so much. Mary Jane (Gram)
I found my dream wedding gown at Caryn's Bridals, Formals & Tuxedos. It was the first day of my hunt for this gown as well as the first store I looked. I called that morning for an appointment and by 2pm I was in the bridal room trying on dress after dress after dress. Cindy, my consultant, was so very helpful and so much fun to work with. She was patient and made you feel like one of the family. I ordered my dress that very day and am working on scheduling with my attendants on when we can make the appointment to go back and choose bridesmaids dresses as well. I would recommend anyone to start here first.

I drove to Farmville to find my wedding dress at Caryn's even though I live in Charlottesville because I had heard such great things. I was not disappointed! The staff was extremely professional and courteous, and only brought me dresses in my price range (unlike other stores I tried.) They were extremely patient as I tried on almost every dress in the store, but I eventually found my dream dress. They were so helpful that I also bought my veil and shoes there and ordered the bridesmaid dresses. They made everything extremely easy, and I highly recommend them.

I was on a mad hunt for my dress. I had called so many stores and noone carried the dress I was looking for...until I called Caryn's. I was looking for a red dress, but would have settled to trying it on in white just to see the style. To my surprise they had a similar style to what I was looking for and I asked if I could come that weekend to try it on. I was told they were booked, but if I didn't mind not being in the bridal portion and not getting a lot of help, then I was more than welcome. When I came first thing in the morning, I was put into the bridal portion and received help--not to mention the best surprise, they had it in red! I dealt with Cindy and she was so helpful and so enthusiastic about my dress choice. After alterations, there was a little piece of the boning popping up but they fixed that while I waited. I also bought my shoes (flats) and had them dyed at the store. They did an excellent job matching the gold in my lace to the shoe. They have a flat alterations rate if you buy the dress there, as well as they give you a certificate towards your gown preservation. It is a very busy store--so make your appointment. Cindy even made me promise to send her a picture of my dress--which I will just as soon as I get them. :-)
What can I say except shop close to where you are getting married. I live and work in the Richmond area but was getting married about an hour away. My mom and I went to almost all of the bridal shops in Richmond and when I had not found THE DRESS I went to Caryn's with my bridal party and my mom. I could not have asked for better service, I pulled dresses, my mom pulled dresses and my girlfriend's pulled dresses and I ended up falling in love with the last dress I tried on. I knew as soon as I put it on that it was the dress. Not only were they not pushy but they also didn't mind that two of my girlfriends had kids with them that were running around and touching everything. I ended up also getting my attendants dresses from them. The girls called in the measurements and the dresses were shipped to them since all of them live out of town. No problem was always the answer I received along with whatever you want, you are the bride. Thank you Caryn's for making my wedding the fairy tale I had always dreamed of.
Thank you so much for the FANTASTIC wedding dress shopping experience! I absolutely LOVE my dress! I had so much fun trying on dresses with Emily! She was professional, caring, very helpful and made the day stress free! I can't wait for the dress to come in so I can try it on! Thanks for a great day!
See you soon!
7-21-10I am an event planner who just moved back to Southside Virginia, and Caryn's blew me away! It has transformed since the last time I've been in 8 or so years ago! I was amazed with the selection and variety! My client was delighted with the service, the selection, and the staff! We purchased her wedding gown, jewelery, shoes and she was pinned for alterations within an hour of walking in the door! It was an amazing experience and I look forward to doing more business together in the future! Send brides our way for the event planning + floral design and I'll do the same for my ladies looking for gowns!
