  • I was very happy with the value of Dar Lynn's. They were good to work with, providing guidance and information, and got me my dress in pristine condition. I'm thrilled with my dress and even more thrilled with it's price tag! I call Dar Lynn's the hidden gem off of 74.

  • Dar lynn's carries Maggie Sottero, I had already picked out the dress and had tried it on in another store, Dar Lynns didn't have the dress, but could order it in the color I wanted and at a better price. I took a chance. After a few excellent alterations MY dress was perfect, a complete dream dress! I also purchased several other dresses there for my daughters, one of which was ordered in silver, and came in more of a hideous grey color, the only complaint I have is how they handled that dress, it really should have gone back to the manufacturer it was nothing like the swatch and it was really awful. Instead they tried to convince me it was great, so I left with the dress, which several people referred to as SAD looking. I replaced the dress elsewhere. Alterations,done in store were perfection! Customer service was wonderful, staff was great!!!

  • I loved my dress and it was a great price. However, the are not at all flexible. I ordered a veil and the company no longer made it. They refused to give us back our money. We had to use it in the store, which was very frustrating! Do not pay for anything unless they're sure they can get it in! On a positive note their alterations lady was great!

  • Dar-Lynns, near Charlotte NC, was the only place that had the Justin Alexander dress that I wanted to try on. They were very helpful and prompt. My only complaint is their phone system- if you call their store, you have to jump through a million hoops in their phone menu to talk to someone.

  • Dar-Lynn's is such a cute place and really affordable. The employees are really nice and work hard to understand what you want and help you find it. Everything was always on time or early. My dress came several weeks early. The seamstress they have is also very talented. I had a mermaid style dress with a lot of lace and some beading, it was amazing how well she altered it and kept all of the proportions of the lace. She also made such a beautiful bustle. They have a wide range of prices, and they also have a lot of great sales at the beginning of the year. I got a free veil as a Valentine's special ($200 saved!)

  • The ladies at Dar-Lynn's were great to work with, especially my girl, Carla. I got my dress, my flower girl dress, shoes, and veil from here. All were just what I wanted and expected. My shoes were dyed perfectly! Only bad part was my drive - 45 mins each way. However, they made it easy by staying open late one day a week for us working girls! Thanks ladies!

  • Dar-Lynn's is a great established bridal and formal wear shop. I was looking for a destination wedding dress and they were one of the only stores in the Charlotte area that had more than three dresses to select from. They people that work there are Southern sweet and hospitiable. There was a major hiccup with my dress but it was resolved within two weeks! I brought four of my five bridesmaids in (we are a loud, rowdy bunch). The woman helping us find the dresses kept us all on track and gave her honest opinion. You could tell this was not her first rodeo. Dar-Lynn's did a wonderful job outfitting my bridesmaids and me and I am so happy to have delt with them!

  • Everyone at Dar-Lynn's was so nice. The tuxedos we ordered for my husband and son looked great, and since my son had grown so much since we ordered his tuxedo the jacket did not fit, but they got another one in right away for us. I wish I had also got my dress from them since they were so awesome, but they did do a great and FAST job on the alterations for my reception dress, and I love the brooch I picked out there as well! Thank you all so much!

  • I had a very hard time finding the perfect dress. I had already been to 5 difference dress shops. I was told by 4 girls at work to go to Dar-Lynns. I scheduled an appt for Thursday evening. I went by myself and had an amazing time. Pam, the manger worked with me. I picked out 10 different dresses. I knew immediately which ones I hated. Pam provided me with her honest opinion. The last dress I tried on.....was the one. The minute I looked into the mirror, I got tears in my eyes. The dress was a casablanca fall 2006. I was so worried about the price. For all the bead work and cut of the dress it was 700. I was thrilled. She informed me that she would take my measurements, and send them in. The dress designers makes your dress to fit you, so there are no extra costs in alterations. I told her that I would come back with my mom. My mom flew down to NC in 3 weeks and we went to look at the dress. Mom made me try on 6 more dresses to make sure it was the one. We picked out a little... Read more

  • My dress was by far the most beautiful dress that I have ever seen! But the price was the most beautiful thing that my mom had ever seen. They were really nice to me in the store. I got my dress in Nov. 2008 and my wedding was not until Sept. 2010 but they did not mind that I must have come in and tried on my dress at least 15 times. Great Service!

  • I found my perfect dress. It was on the sale rack- that was awesome! I thought they would let me keep my dress there but apparently since my dress was a sale dress it couldn't stay. Paid for or not... They did let me bring it back to be pressed before the wedding. That was nice. I think they could use a little boost in service and professionalism but other than that, my dress was perfect.

  • The Wedding Dress was purchased there. The dresses that they had were beautiful and the lady that helped us was very nice. The only drawback was that we had a problem with the dress and they wouldn't do anything to help us. One thing that was nice about the place though was that they pressed the dress for us and held on to it up until the morning of the wedding. It all turned out good. They had a much better selection than David's Bridal, which is where the bridesmaid's Dresses were purchased. I would say it wouldn't be a bad place to use for the wedding dress only, not so great with bridesmaid's dresses.

  • I found my dress very quickly at this store, I had seen it marked up in several other stores and they offered me a 20% discount on the spot! I was amazed. Their seamstress did a great job also with the adjustments.
