  • I went to Lastrina Girls on another local bride’s recommendation. Amy found my perfect dress on the first try. She had asked me to show her pictures of styles I was thinking of trying and my price point. I was willing to try different styles to see what might look best on me. She stayed within my modest price point and the first dress was perfect. I tried on a few more to be sure, and I was temporarily torn between 2 similar dresses, but the price and fit of the first one won me over. I went with a strapless fit-and-flare with a corset back, which worked out well for my constant fluctuations in size. The entire process was stress-free and easy. I did all of my fitting appointments at their tailor’s shop instead of in the salon due to my schedule, which was wonderful.

  • Every Bride knows that the dress is a MAJOR thing. Not only do you want to feel special and beautiful but you want to feel 100% sure of your decision. Lastrina Girls offers a VIP type appointment where you are the only bride in the store and get treated like a princess basically. I went into my appointment very nervous about my body type and with a very specific style in mind that I hoped I love on me as much as I have seen on the models. Krista was able to make me feel at ease and comfortable in my own skin while she put me in multiple dresses that fit what I was looking for. She would ask me what I specifically liked and didn't like of every dress I put on so that she could figure out EXACTLY what I wanted. It only took us 5 dresses to find THE ONE. From the very start, through the 2 fittings, to pick up everyone at the salon was amazing.

  • I could not have had a better experience with Lastrina Girls! Krista was amazing to work with. She helped me find the perfect dress and was so reassuring throughout the entire process. I called and emailed countless times with questions and always received a helpful response quickly. I went back with my bridesmaids to shop for their dresses and had another great experience. Krista is truly the best. She is so knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her brides. Thank you!!

  • Lastrina Girls was the only bridal salon that I visited, and would highly recommend for any bride to be. I was drawn into the store from our jeweler as well as their summer allure trunk show. When I arrived with my mother, future mother in law and sister in law we were seated and spoke with Krista about my wedding, dress budget, venue, and likes/dislikes. Both Krista and her staff pulled 5 or 6 dresses, the first being what I thought was the ONE. It wasn’t until Krista herself pulled something that on the hanger did not look like something I would have chosen. Well, it ended up being the dress! From that day forward I was updated frequently on the status of my dress, and booked easily for my fittings. I did use the in house tailor without any issues – although I did not require many alterations because I was fitted so well! She also offers many sales throughout the year including one for veils in which I was able to try on the sample dress and veil together. Krista’s salon is a h... Read more

  • Lastrina Girls has a great selection of beautiful dresses. So many in fact that I had a hard time choosing between a few of them. Krista, the owner, was so wonderful and helped me throughout the process. I was definitely not an easy customer - I went back and forth and changed my mind a lot. She was so patient and sweet and never made me feel pressured to make a decision right away. I ended up buying an absolutely stunning dress for an incredible price. I'm so happy I went there!

  • Wedding dress shopping can be stressful but this was certainly not my experience at Lastrina girls in Middletown, CT. We were a small bridal shopping group, just my mom and I, and Lastrina was one of four salons we were visiting in the few days she was up visiting from New Jersey. As soon as we walked into Lastrina, we were greeted by Krista and felt immediately at ease. She was warm, friendly, and incredibly kind. Her goal was to learn about me so that she could help me choose the dress that would fit my personality and expectations. Rather than immediately showing us dresses, she sat down with us, asking how I wanted to feel on our wedding day, what our ceremony and reception was going to be like, and other details about the day. Her final question was about our budget and she never brought me a dress that was over that amount. There also was never any pressure to purchase a dress and she understood that I was still in the process of shopping around. I fell in love with dress ... Read more

  • Lastrina girls was absolutely wonderful! I went to many many bridal shops before Lastrina girls (like 10). I really liked two dresses, and they were wonderful in helping me decide which one was best. They performed my alterations as well, and were very accommodating to my schedule. Overall, extremely professional and friendly staff.

  • This was my first and only stop for my wedding dress! My girlfriend was looking for bridal shops close to my wedding venue and found Lastrina Girls Bridal Salon. Krista, the owner, was very friendly and patient. She offered advice and suggestions in a very gentle manner. I returned to the store with my mother who also thought Krista was delightful. It was very easy to schedule appointments and fittings. If I had any inquiries, Krista got back to me right away. I had purchased a veil elsewhere without having my dress. When I tried them on together the colors were not a match. This was about 6 weeks out from the wedding. I needed loops in my veil instead of a comb and Krista checked with the company she uses for veils and they said they could accommodate my request. I completely left the veil selection up to Krista. I trusted her and I knew at this point she knew me and she knew my style. She picked the perfect veil- I loved it!! It was such a pleasant experience working with ... Read more

  • Krista is simply amazing. She knows best how to pick dresses that look great on any figure. She found the perfect dress for my body type, and I couldn't be any happier. Her boutique is beautiful, and the appointments were always private, which added a special touch when trying on gowns. She is friendly, accommodating, and very easy to work with. She met all of my needs and was always happy to help. She also helped my sister find her wedding gown 3 years ago. I am so impressed by her and would recommend her to anyone.

  • Krista and her amazing team helped me through my whole wedding process. From helping me with all the details of my dress, which I had cut in the front to see my cowboy boots, alterations, belt styles, fittings, to all of my bridesmaids, they were amazing and I couldn't have imagined a better experience. Krista responded within a day whenever I changed my mind on color or had a question about a bridesmaid. She knew my name every time I walked in and checked in with me during the whole process. The type of service and detail Krista and her whole team provided was so personal, they didn't treat my wedding party and me like just another wedding party. We felt special and important and taken care of. Lastrina Girls definitely raises the bar when it comes to customer service and they made wedding dress and bridesmaid dress shopping fun and relaxing.

  • I tried my hardest to give this salon a chance, I honestly did. But from the moment I walked in, I was made to feel like my day was not important to them. I am a bride and went there to buy dresses for my bridesmaids and my mother. ...they gave my mother absolutely no time! Wouldn't even pull dresses for her, I had to do the work and help her into the dresses myself!! Then I found a bridesmaid dress I liked but needed a dress for my junior bridesmaids as well. They informed me that the dress I picked could not come in junior sizes so they showed me the only 2 dresses in the store that could come in a junior dress. I hated both picks but reluctantly settled on one that matched with my other girls.... Fast forward 10 weeks, my junior bridesmaid dresses came in, and they were each 4-6 sizes too big!!!! My mother, a 43 year old woman who has had 3 children could fit in one of the dresses! The dress even had boobs! Even the bridesmaid dresses which they measured in their own store were... Read more

  • I had the most wonderful experience with Krista at Lastrina Girls. She has a beautiful selection of dresses, a very large and comfortable dressing room, and I was the only appointment scheduled at that time (I don't think she books more than one at once) which allowed Krista to focus completely on me. I needed a dress with hardly any time before my wedding and she had a beautiful sample gown that flattered my body and fit my venue and image for the day perfectly. She also carries many sample dresses in larger sizes than a regular bridal shop because she understands that so many brides are not waif-thin -- and those dresses are flattering to curves!! Krista has a great eye for curating her dress collection and was super sweet and helpful. Half a star off for value because we found afterward that a formal dress we purchased off-the-rack was sold in 2 other stores for cheaper. The gowns appeared to be priced well and reasonably.
