  • I cannot say ENOUGH about this wonderful place! Maddie was wonderful, and with her help and the assistance of Alex, the Vera Wang rep, I was able to find the most gorgeous gown and customize it within my budget. My budget was sizeable, but definitely on the lower end for couture, and they were so helpful and lovely helping me find something that was gorgeous and wouldn't break the bank.. I actually had to run to another appointment after an hour at Carine's, and they let me come back in later that day to try on my dream dress again. They have also been wonderful about communication so far. I CANNOT wait till my dream dress is mine!!! Thank you all again for all your help!

  • I went to the sample sale at Carine's and found my dream dress in under an hour! Their selection of sample gowns is exquisite and I was able to find my dream designer gown very quickly. The service was excellent and the staff at Carine's made my dress-shopping experience so special.

  • I had such great experience at Carine's! Everyone there was so patient and attentive, helping me decide on what I wanted for my wedding day. The consultants are very knowledgeable on bridal fashion and on their dresses! They really made this a comfortable and enjoyable experience! Five stars is not enough!

  • When I had my dress consultation at Carine’s, I couldn’t believe how many gorgeous dresses they had (in so many price ranges). I could have easily worn and been happy with at least 3 of the dress selections the assistant pulled, and kept saying, “this might be it!” But the knowledgeable assistant pulled a dress for me try on that I wouldn’t have thought was right and—don’t you know—that was The One. Carine’s makes your wedding fairytale dreams come true!

  • I had tried 3-4 different bridal stores in the NYC and DC area, and it wasn’t until I got an appt with Maddie K at Carine’s that I truly started to understand what I was looking for. Maddie took the time to understand my style and my venue, and provided such useful guidance as I tried dresses on. She also worked with the designer to custom-order a veil to fit my preferences and match the gown. It turned out so beautifully. Our seamstress was absolutely incredible, she made the dress fit so perfectly. We were so impressed by her work! My sister is also wedding planning and after my experience, didn’t even look anywhere else. She found her gown and had an awesome experience at Carine’s too! THANK YOU, Maddie and team!

  • I cannot thank Jai and the other wonderful staff at Carine's enough for my experience last weekend. I dropped in to their sample sale room just on a whim between appointments and found a stunning option. I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit, so I paid to have the gown put on hold, and was told that even though they are closed on Mondays to do administrative work, Jai would open up for me and my mother and sister (who were leaving that day) if I decided to come back and wanted to try on the gown again. We showed up Monday and were let inside and, even though they were technically closed, my sister spotted an option we hadn't seen when we were there Saturday. Jai and Heaven were SO excited and helpful as I tried on this new option, and it ended up being the perfect dress for me. I can't thank them enough for their flexibility, helpfulness, and excitement. AND I got a fabulous deal on a gorgeous gown! What more could you want?!

  • I have to share how blessed I was to work with Carine's and my bridal consultant Lauren. In one sentence: The boutique carries the highest-end designers in the area and their relationships with those designers give them the flexibility to ensure you get your dream dress, period. If you love Ines Di Santo, this is your store. I'd call myself a high-maintenance, indecisive, comparison shopper. I tried on more than 50 dresses at nine stores in three states, plus the District. All the while, I kept in touch with Lauren. She emailed back-and-forth with me between my three appointments, made sure the store had all the dresses I wanted to try on, and bent over backwards to keep me from settling for a dress I wasn't 100 percent in love with. I was fortunate to have a healthy (though not limitless) budget that allowed me to go shopping for dresses in Manhattan. There I found a Marchesa gown I loved and emailed Lauren to tell her I was torn. By the time I went to my final appointment at C... Read more

  • This was the dress shopping experience my mom was waiting for. We had been to 7 stores that week and this was the last stop. The dressing rooms were large and private. The sofa was comfortable. We picked out several dresses and they brought them in a couple at a time so we didn't get overwhelmed. They helped us style the dress, discuss accessories. I have never loved a dress so much in my life. Their selection was incredible, but I think I knew the second I saw it. They only have one fee for alterations, which was nice because you don't have to worry about it if you need more than 2 fittings. I was lucky that not much needed to be changed in mine. The fittings were easy. The way they bustled the dress was great, especially since my dress was a very delicate chiffon. My final fitting was 2 weeks before the wedding and it fit like a glove.

  • Where do I even start? Working with Carine and her team was an absolute dream. From my initial appointment with Jessica, to my last fittings with their team of seamstresses, everything was PERFECT. When we first went to Carine's, I had a very specific dress in mind. Upon finding out that it was not carried in any of the bridal boutiques in the area, Carine requested to borrow it from the designer so that I could try it on. I immediately fell in love and the team at Carine's took care of everything. I am so thankful that they put me in my dream dress! I can't thank Carine and her team enough.

  • These are for brides who are into fashion and who want something other than the traditional. I mean their dresses are stunning! And the staff was incredibly helpful, charming, and professional throughout the whole year. They made the whole process stress free!

  • Carine’s was the first bridal shop I visited and where I purchased my gown. Adele, my consultant, was a pleasure to work with, and I felt like she really understood my style and respected my budget. Carine is also wonderful and helped me to pick out my reception dress. Aziza, the seamstress did a phenomenal job on alterations for both dresses, and I can’t recommend her enough!

  • BRIDES BEWARE : I had my 1st bridal appointment at Carine’s Bridal. The owner, Carine & my consultant let me try on several dresses. I did not like anything. Carine suggested a dress from the sample sale (advertised as 40-90% off ALL sample sale gowns) in the basement. My 1st time hearing of the sale. I said yes to the dress. I was unaware at the time of purchase the dress came out in 2015. I was told repeatedly the price is a great deal on a newer gown. I was charged the ticketed price, $7699. I was later advised by multiple salons to include the Israeli designer that the original cost of the my dress is $9250. I instantly realized I only got 16.87 percent off, however, ALL sample gowns were advertised as being a minimum 40% off. Moreover, I received emails from 3 high end bridal salons in New York City stating the cost of my dress NEW is $7950 w/trunk show discount. However I was charged $7699 for a SAMPLE. I asked the dress be shipped to me (about 50 miles from Carines) & was told... Read more

  • I recently went with my sister to Carine's to look at wedding dresses for her March 2020 wedding, just about a year after I purchased my wedding dress from Carine's in 2018. My sister was greeted by Briana, the stylist/team member whom I worked with last year. I was instantly reminded that I never wrote the review I meant to last year and I was doubly reminded throughout the hour why I wanted to take the time to write it -- Briana is simply incredible. My mom, sister, and I all agreed that there may not be anyone in this industry as knowledgeable, creative, patient, and comfortable to work with then Briana. She listened to my sister, understood her body, her concerns, her ideas, aesthetic, just as she had done with me last year. Briana ensured I found a dress I felt confident and beautiful in -- she was hands on during the alternations process and worked with us so I could wear my mom's cape from her wedding with the dress as well. Lastly, she has a Rain Man like ability to recall dres... Read more

  • I purchased my reception dress from Carine's, after trying it on in a bridal salon in New York and getting poor service I decided to buy it from another salon. My first appointment to try on the dress during the trunk show was fantastic. My stylist was Adele and she was wonderful. She got it, I wasn't there searching for a gown, I knew what I wanted and she made it easy. From there my experience wasn't as great to be honest. I reached out to Carine's about setting up my fittings when I was about 8 weeks from my wedding date because I hadn't heard from them. I was starting to look at my travel calendar, my wedding calendar, and I realized I only had two full weeks in DC before my destination wedding. I wanted to be sure that I could schedule fittings during those times. I was very clear about this when I reached out in my email. However, they replied and told me they couldn't accommodate my dates and gave me a specific date to come in- which of course was when I wasn't available. After ... Read more
