  • I wanted to me married in my grandmother’s wedding dress. Carmen took that dream and made it come alive. I can not believe that work and attention to detail. Carmen literally made this dress come to life and made me feel like a princess.

  • My wedding was supposed to be an elopement of maybe 5 to 10 people in a park or open area....With less than 2 months prior to date, it became a full blown wedding with 40+ guests, a pricey venue and an official ceremony to include a flower girl. Sooooo, you can imagine my panic when I realized I needed a dress to match my event! I searched many bridal shops and ofcourse there was nothing in my budget that was appealing enough to call "the one". That was when I found Carmen!!! She was so excited for me and paid attention to what I was looking for in such short notice. I was sized, fitted and in the perfect dress with veil and belt to match within a month's time. She made my wedding a day to remember at a fraction of the cost!!!! I can't thank her enough for her hard work and passion to ensure my big day was all it's meant to be!!!!

  • My wedding is in December I had looked at dress in a few places and never found what I was looking for. I didn’t want to pay a arm and a leg for a dress that I didn’t love and that I would only be wearing once. So I googled dress rentals and for some reason I couldn’t find one and then a few days later Carmen’s shop popes up on my news feed. I called her she asked what I was looking for a few days later my family and I took a visit to see Ms. Carmen. When I tell you this lady knows what she is doing I tried on ONE dress and it was everything I was looking for, Carmen was so fun and warm like being at my favorite aunties house lol. This young lady knows her stuff love everything about her 🥰🥰💙💙

  • Up front, I am not the bride. I am an aunt who escorted her niece to the final fitting at Carmen’s two days prior to the ceremony. Aside from the fact that she paid over $800 for a “new” rental gown, the bodice ended up so poorly fitted that at the last minute she had to wear a bolero-type jacket. I understand that rental gowns are not “permanently” altered so they can accommodate future bridesmaids but the alterations were such temporary fixes that the gown did not hang as intended and the temporary stitches pulled out before she even left the dressing room! In addition, for $165 my niece commissioned them to hem a reception gown purchased elsewhere. The hemming price was high because the bottom was scalloped so it had to be shortened by taking it up at the waistband. The end result was a gown that hung so unevenly she was unable to wear it. My advice to brides on a budget is to shop at David’s bridal and pay a seasoned seamstress who will properly fit the gown. Don’t ru... Read more

    Miss Terry - I just messaged with your niece. She was very happy with our services and her dress. The gown was brand new all tags and in fact when she came in for her fittings the smell of new out of the box was still there. She chose to wear the jacket and had planned it for weeks since she came to her fittings with it. We saw her videos on social media have congratulated her and she looked AMAZING plus completely radiant in her gown. ALL alterations were made for her if not her sister and mom would have addressed them at her fittings. The bodice did not break as you falsely claim - no stitching came apart or no such thing ever occurred. If you had any concerns regarding your nieces preferences than you should have brought it to her attention. If you wish to communicate with me directly - you are welcome to 410-440-2992.

  • Carmen was phenomenal! I needed a dress altered VERY last minute, and Carmen assured me it would be ready! She altered my dress in less than 2 dats! She is beyond sweet, and genuinely wants everyone to worry less and enjoy their upcoming event! Thank you, Mrs. Carmen!!

  • Carmen and her family are so kind! They have over 20 years of experience and gave me their full attention for my 3 fittings. I brought in a sample gown from a big chain store and they created my dream dress with adding a sash, extra layers, and other alterations. I used them for alterations only, but they do rent gowns and style for weddings and parties as well. I did have to reschedule with them several times for family emergencies. If you can be flexible and understand the demands of being a working family/small biz, then I highly recommend them!
