  • I had arranged for Carolyn Allen's to steam my dress the day before my Disney wedding - They were so great to work with! They were so accommodating and it was so convenient that they were able to come to our hotel to do the steaming services. Sue absolutely saved the day - Not only did she do the steaming, but upon arriving in Florida, we discovered that somehow during our travels there were a few spots on the gown that had become discolored. I was absolutely horrified, but Sue was able to get the spots out completely!! I was amazed!

  • Sue and Keith were so wonderful to work with on the alterations for my wedding dress and for my husband’s suit! They are so detail-oriented and have so many years of experience, we knew we could count on them to help make us look our best for our wedding day! It was so easy to communicate with them, and they made sure everything looked perfect for the happiest day of our lives. We 100% recommend you choose Carolyn Allen’s for all your alteration and tailoring needs!

  • I was referred to Carolyn Allen's Bridal by a random stranger on Facebook who absolutely RAVED about them. And I am not disappointed! Sue and her family are the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet, and are committed to making you feel like a princess for your special day. She even customized the sleeves of my dress to make it a unique reflection of me. It's clear that she takes great care and pride in her work. I had visited another dress shop in downtown Orlando to look at the same dress, but chose to drive further to Carolyn Allen's because of the attentive service and professionalism that I found there. I very highly recommend!

  • Our wedding was at Disney, and I needed my dress as well as my Mom's dress steamed. They did a fabulous job and were wonderful to work with throughout the whole process!

  • I had a fantastic experience working with Carolyn Allen Bridals for my wedding dress. Kathleen was very helpful when I went in to try on dresses. She provided a book to look through to pick which dresses I wanted to try on, and based on my style she provided some additional selections as well. She did not put any pressure on me during the shopping experience and allowed me to come back before I purchased to try on the dress once more. Many other stores that I visited had rules about how many dresses you could try or whether you could take pictures, but Carolyn Allen was extremely flexible and accommodating during shopping. I ended up buying a Stella York sample dress on a huge sale that was well under my budget. I knew the dress would need a lot of alterations, but Sue was there when I was purchasing my dress to talk me through what work she could do to make the dress fit me. When it came time to do the alterations, Sue had to practically rebuild the dress, but she did an amazin... Read more

  • Sue and her team are amazing at what they do! They came to our resort room to steam 6 gowns, 1 bridal gown, and press 7 suits! They were completely finished in less than 2 hours! They are so careful with each garment and are so sweet and easy to talk to! I would definitely recommend to anyone who is inquiring!

  • I had researched the style of dress as soon as I got engaged. Stella York was the designer that I was drawn too. Carolyn Allen carried wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses (Sorella Vita). When I arrived I felt very comfortable. As I tried on many dresses the staff was very patient, accommodating and informative. The have been around and seen it all when it comes to weddings. I also had my bridesmaids buy their dresses there as well. The majority of my bridesmaids went back to get their dress altered there. Everyone of them mentioned to me how nice and accommodating the staff was. I will be going back to them to get my dress preserved, cleaned and would recommend alterations as well!! Great place that treats you like family!

  • Sue and her husband who run the store are incredible! Such fun and caring people! They have a wide selection of dresses and were able to find me many dresses to try on in the style I was looking for. They are super easy to work with and have very reasonable pricing! Everyone loved my dress on my wedding day! Thank you!!

  • Brought her my wedding dress 6 weeks before my wedding to be altered and she did a fantastic job!! She hemmed the bottom of my dress and shortened the straps, with enough time to do anything else I would need after my final fitting! She was so kind and professional and also altered my mother’s dress is 2 weeks to exactly what she wanted!!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about this shop. Sue and Keith became friends throughout the process. They were patient in the choosing process and offered their thoughts and suggestions, were helpful and flexible if I needed to reschedule a fitting, and really cared about making sure my dress was perfect for my special day. I would recommend this shop to anyone getting married, and I can guarantee you wouldn't be disappointed!

  • I had a wonderful experience with this bridal shop. I had a multicultural wedding so there were two ceremonies. I bought my American wedding dress here and ordered the other outfit from India. Sue was kind enough to stitch my top for the Indian outfit and it turned out beautifully! I was in love with both of my outfits and so happy with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff here. They knew who I was each time I came in for my fittings which made it seem like I was visiting a friend. I would highly recommend this establishment to any bride.

  • I started looking for my bridal dress around 2 months before my wedding day, visited a few popular bridal shops in Orlando but didn't find a special dress for my wedding, special customer service or the guidance you need when shopping for your wedding dress. I found Carolyn's Allen's shop conveniently located by the Premium Outlets. I called and got an appointment set up for the same day, I asked if I could bring my 9 month old baby and they actually loved it. In less than an hour I found my perfect dress !! It was a pleasure dealing with this family run business. Everyone is extremely friendly, courteous and professional. They are keen on listening to your needs and finding the perfect dress within your budget. Sue did an amazing job altering my dress and designing straps for me. They were also very helpful in assisting my husband find the right tuxedo rental.

  • We used Carolyn Allen's for multiple services: gown steaming, tuxedo rentals, gown cleaning/preservation. Kathleen and her parents were absolutely wonderful to work with. We were planning a destination wedding so there was a lot of anxiety and nerves around these particular services but we could not have been happier working with them- they were incredibly responsive to my many questions and their willingness to travel to our hotels for the rental fittings, steaming, drop-offs, and pick-ups, etc. was incredibly wonderful and appreciated. Since we were traveling I was actually able to carry my wedding dress with me, but I know many others that have used their services and shipped their dresses to them in advance, so that's a great option if you need it. Plus their willingness to accommodate our schedules in terms of picking up the rentals and my dress after the wedding was so nice and a huge relief. I also got my cleaned and preserved wedding dress back shipped back home to me in grea... Read more

  • Services used: alterations. (Dress hemming, bustle, and fitting of lace jacket with button back.) Sue was lovely to work with and kind; she made me feel beautiful-perhaps so much so that I did not objectively assess the work that was done. The hem length and bustle were wonderful, and the attempt to not have a hemline at the bottom well-meant; however, the horsehair braiding was so kinky, I would have preferred seeing an actual hem. The lining sewn to the dress was not cut adequately in proportion to the dress, so paired with the kinking, it flipped outward so that the lining showed. Thankfully, I noticed this a few days beforehand and was able to gather/sew inside the dress to prevent this from happening as well as spend several hours trying to iron out the horsehair braid kinking. The offer to bring my dress back the week of the wedding for a steaming was not included in my alteration fee, though it sounded as such and was included for my friend who recommended this vendor to me....

  • It is a husband and wife team. I tried to overlook the service that I received that day. I do not feel that I received the full bridal experience. Very unprofessional on the phone when I have called with regards to my dress. I had purchased a dress and was unhappy with purchase. I tried to cancel my order and they said it was impossible to do. They refuse to buy the dress back from me. They are unwilling to accommodate me or my wedding planner. They have hung up the phone on me and my wedding planner. I have tried to talk to them and reach an agreement and purchase another gown that they have in their store and they refuse to help me. Throughout this entire process, they have been extremely rude. I recommend finding another bridal shop to find your dream dress and to have a better experience. I'm now afraid that I am stuck with a dress that I hate and will be going with another bridal store to find my dream dress. So disappointed in this place especially after seeing so many wonderful ...
