I cannot even begin to say enough good things about Caryn’s, and my sweet consultant Olivia! When I arrived, the welcome sign had my name on it, which made me feel so special! I didn’t really think I would find THE dress today, but the stars aligned and it happened! They were so sweet, they listened to my wishes, and were not pushy by any means! I think I was the only bride at that time (and if I wasn’t I surely couldn’t tell), and I felt like they devoted their full attention to me! I also know one of the seamstresses very well, and they had her come down to see me in my gown *cue the tears*… Not to mention, the adorable goodie bag I got! Can’t wait to go back for my fittings!

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.

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!


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!

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 will recommend Caryn’s to anyone I know! I came here thanks to a recommendation from my future mother-in-law, and I left with my perfect dress! They were responsive when scheduling the visit and asked questions to make sure everything was ready for the day. My consultant, Olivia, was absolutely amazing and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire visit. I am so proud to say I am a Caryn’s bride! I can’t wait to come back for my fittings!


I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Olivia, wow! Hands down, because of you – you helped me find my dream dress and made me feel like Megan Markle. She was relaxed, easy going, and very knowledgeable. She even took the extra step to pull bridesmaids dresses to see which colors would look beautiful beside my dress. Then at the end, Cindy sealed the deal with a hug. Very touching and personal. To be a bride who lost my mom at a young age, I knew this would be a hard to not have my mom their to say yes to the dress with me but, Olivia and Cindy made this day so memorable and easy for me. THANK YOU!!!!


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.


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!
