I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you for listening to what I wanted instead of trying to just sell me something. I found my perfect dress, I don’t think I could have found a better one! You guys are the best, thank you!


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 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.

Yorktown Bride

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Caryn’s. Cindy was the definition of professional while still making me feel like we were old friends! She was also in the process of training Parker, who was a delight, but it never felt like this training took away from my experience. From the very first dress (which I ended up buying), Cindy NAILED my style and personality to the point where I would have been happy to walk down the aisle in any of the 8 or so dresses I tried on. I would recommend Caryn’s to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, affordable dress with a side of superior service. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this experience so wonderful!


Wonderful Experience! I would highly recommend Caryn’s to any bride!!! The day before my appointment there was a snow storm. They called me the night before to establish a plan in case of inclement weather. Luckily the next morning, we were able to still make it down and had a wonderful experience. I appreciate their willingness to still open and/or work out a plan with me to ensure that the weather didn’t put a damper on my plans! My consultant was excellent. She listened to what I liked and didn’t like and helped me narrow down my search and find the dress of my dreams! I am beyond excited for my fiancé to see me in my stunning gown this upcoming October!


Caryns is a dream! General Manager Cindy George went out of her way to open the store for us on a Monday, which is a day that the store would typically be closed. I was in Richmond for Christmas, visiting from Chicago, but had heard great things about the boutique and wanted to make the trip check it out. Over the course of two hours, I tried on about 15 dresses, and then re-tried on my top several options back to back. Cindy had dresses waiting for us that I had spotted online and then took note of what I seemed to like and pulled additional dresses throughout the fitting. Thr boutique itself is gorgeous and spacious and has a ton of options. They also have bridesmaid dresses / shoes / accessories. I ended up finding THE dress at Caryns, and at a reasonable price point. Not only that, but alterations for Caryns brides are only $250 and we received $50 off the veil for purchasing same-day. Definitely recommend Caryns–even if you are from out of town!!


I was referred to Caryn’s by multiple people and it did not disappoint at all! From start to finish- Olivia was fantastic! The first wedding dress I ever tried on I was in love with but I found THE dress only a few changes later! My budget was very small and I was able to get a beautiful gown and a vail. I can see why people come from all over to Caryn’s- the selection, the consultants, the atmosphere, the excitement…hands down this place has IT!


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.

I 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!

We had shopped at Caryn’s previously. We knew the quality of their gowns and service. We did shop a few local stores before making the one hour trip to Caryn’s. However, we knew we would find “the dress” at Caryn’s. We always question why we wasted time elsewhere. First visit “said yes to the dress”. We also purchased a MOB dress there also. We had a slight hiccup on dress size and Caryn was absolutely awesome at making everything right. That is the kind of business she runs. Not something you find just any place. Highly recommend visiting Caryn’s.
