  • Tamzen's Bridal was the first shop I went to to look for a wedding dress. I ended up buying a dress right there and then! The woman who assisted us was incredible! She gave me so much advice and truly made it a magical experience. Due to COVID, we were the only ones in the store (appointment only currently) and I loved it. She gave us endless attention and really guided me through the process. The shop has a wide array of choices and styles, but our stylist narrowed it down based on my body type and likes to make the experience not so overwhelming. If you are looking for a wedding gown I highly recommend checking out Tamzen's Bridals!

  • I couldn't possibly have had a better wedding dress buying experience than the one I had with Tamzen's Bridal. I felt so overwhelmed (and excited!) with this task at the beginning but Tammy was so attentive and helpful and answered all of my questions. I wound up with the perfect dress and the easiest buying process I could imagine! Tammy's primary concern was that I was completely happy with everything about my choice, and I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and caring.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Tammy and her staff at Tamzen’s bridal. I found 5 very specific dresses I wanted to try on, and all the stores near my home in Maryland said it would cost $100 per dress to ship to their store so I could try them on if they did not already carry those dresses, which none of them did. If I did not buy a dress, I would be out hundreds of dollars just to try on some dresses! Because of this, I decided to look further from my home and called Tamzen’s Bridal. Tammy went above and beyond to make sure I could get all 5 dresses I wanted to try on, and even worked it out with a trunk show so all the dresses could be shipped for FREE! The location is in a very nice city of Carlisle, where we were able to do a wine tasting at a nearby winery at Tammy’s recommendation before my appointment. I was the only bride in the store during my appointment which meant I had the whole store to myself and the whole staff to help me decide on a dress! I found the dres... Read more

  • I cannot recommend Tamzen's enough!!! The shop is beautiful and Tamzen and her consultants are super helpful and respectful of your budget. They really listened to what I wanted and chose dresses that flattered my figure. I never felt pressured or overwhelmed. Tamzen also called and texted me several times to let me know when my dress was ordered and delivered to the shop. I also love that they let you walk around and pull dresses! Not all bridal shops do this, but I think it makes wedding dress shopping fun and easier for you and your consultant. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and will recommend Tamzen's to every bride I meet!

  • Tamzen is the best there is! The moment I met her I could tell she was someone who knew bridal gowns and the bridal industry very well. She knew exactly which gowns would look amazing on me, and she was the one who ended up picking out "the dress" after realizing the ones I was picking just weren't right for my body type. She made me feel very comfortable with her warm and genuine personality. She basically treated me as if I was HER daughter getting married! I can be very indecisive (and it didn't help that she has sooooo many beautiful dresses to choose from), so when I finally had it narrowed down to three dresses, she guided me to the right one by giving me things to think about that other places didn't, like what alterations would be needed and how that would affect the overall look and cost of the dress. Again, she really knows her stuff, and that is exactly the type of consultant you need when making such an important purchase. She gives you her complete and undivided att... Read more

  • I was extremely overwhelmed when I began looking for a wedding dress and Tamzen’s was recommended to me by a friend. From the moment we walked in, Tammy was kind and very helpful! She picked out dresses I never would have imagined myself in but she also listened to my vision. She was very patient and didn’t push me into purchasing. This was my first visit but it will definitely not be my last! If you are looking for a great bridal shop in Central PA, I cannot recommend enough! Thank you, Tammy!

  • All I can say about my experience at Tamzen's is WOW! Tamzen is so knowledgeable and caring. She did a wonderful job of making my family and I feel right at home in the shop. She made wonderful recommendations about which dresses to try on. The dress I ended up choosing was actually one of her 'wild card' choices for me! Tamzen also makes great recommendations for the way your dress should be ordered in to make the alteration process easier. She will also recommend various different seamstresses in the area that she knows and trusts, which I really appreciated! I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding gown to make an appointment at Tamzen's!!

  • I wish there was a way to give more than 5 stars because I would give 10 stars for the excellent service and care I received at Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor. I have been to multiple bridal stores between shopping for my sister’s wedding dress and mine and NOTHING compares to the care we received with Tammy. First, they shut down the entire store for your wedding appointment, so you never have to deal with other brides walking by your mirror or big wedding parties crowding your space. It creates the feel of having a little bridal show for your family and bridal party, starring you – who wouldn’t want that?! I would hate it when I went to other bridal salons and they said the same thing as everyone else, “oh, honey you look great in everything,” which we all know is false. Tammy tells you exactly what dresses flatter you and which dress will look perfect for your wedding theme. She never tries to push you into anything or make you second guess your decision. We all have... Read more

  • I had to take my daughter in to find a specific designer for my sons out of state wedding.. Tammy the owner was so helpful and nice.. The atmosphere was relaxed which was so needed.. I was so impressed even after telling her I wasn't sure about ordering the dress there because my future daughter in law wanted them to be ordered together.. She explained the process and also offered (with receipt) to match any price or sale discount we were offered.. She has that small town feel with a personal touch.. I will refer everyone I know to her for all their Bridal or formal needs.. Defiantly someone I would give my business to in the future..

    Thank you Charity, It was a pleasure to meet you lovely ladies! Congrats again! You have a new fan!

  • Tamzen's Bridal is amazing! I would highly recommend them to any bride. I just had a baby so I was very self conscious about how I looked. When I made the appointment I was super nervous because I knew I wasn't where I wanted to be size wise. When I got there Tamzen was immediately welcoming me and my bridesmaids. I didn't know what to expect walking in. At places like David's Bridal you seem any people around watching, but at Tamzen's Bridal you have the store to yourself, which made me so much more comfortable. Once I picked out a few dresses, Tamzen helped me try them on. Again, she was very professional and also very helpful in helping me find the perfect dress! That was the first and only place I went to. My bridesmaids also got their dresses there as well. They too had an amazing experience.

    Aww! Thank you Alyssa. You know how I feel about you and your wedding party! You're the sweetest! I am looking forward to the big day and lots of pictures.

  • Buying a wedding dress can be a tough process. Buying a wedding dress online can be even more difficult. Buying a sample dress, for a great price was a huge gamble... I was biting my nails waiting for it to come! BUT, it arrived, packaged perfectly and in AMAZING quality. The fit was amazing and I still pinch myself that I was so fortunate to have found such a great buy. PLus, Tamzen treated me just like any of her brides that walk into her store and followed up to be sure I was happy with my purchase. It made me feel great that she was so pleased the sample dress worked for me, and I never felt like she was just trying to clear out old stock. Highly recommend her!

    Thank you Kate! It was wonderful working with you. I'm still waiting to see pictures of my beautiful bride. (Wink, Wink) I hope your day was as beautiful as you!

  • I don't have enough positive things to say. I was concerned about finding the right dress after I tried other stores, and Tammy not only found it :)!!!, but she made me extremely comfortable during the entire process. My dress is BEAUTIFUL, but the sincerity and warmth at Tamzen's was the icing on the cake! I strongly recommend visiting Tammy & team!

  • I had the most memorable experience with Tamzen's bridal! I live out of town and my mom is a school teacher, which made getting to Carlisle at a decent hour of the day difficult to manage. Tamzen understood my situation when I was attempting to make an appointment and she offered to keep the salon open late so we could get all our schedules lined up, talk about customer service! It was also wonderful having the salon to ourselves. She was patient and understanding with me (this was my first time shopping for a dress). She listened to what I liked and found me the PERFECT dress. I would recommend over and over again!

  • My sister and I both ended up getting our wedding dresses at Tamzen's Bridal in Carlisle, PA because of the customer service and overall experience. A lot of dress shops have gorgeous dresses and I'm sure I could have found my dress at any other shop since it was a Stella dress and pretty popular. But, Tamzen's bridal shop is one-of-a-kind. She makes you feel like you are the only bride in the room - mostly because - well, you are. You can schedule your own private appointment which means you have the entire place to yourself! There's no awkward moments of you having to look at other brides trying on their dresses or maybe trying on the dress that you want to try on, too. There's no comparing yourself to anyone else because you are the only bride and Tamzen makes you feel like the most beautiful bride she has ever seen. She is so easy to work with. She listens to what you are looking for but she will also offer own advice from experience. I thought I was looking for a totally different... Read more

    Aww Alicia, you are going to make me cry! Thank you for such a wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure to help you find your gown. You and your family are very special to us, here at Tamzen's Bridal. (I personally feel like you are apart of my own family!) Your pictures are gorgeous and you certainly "rock" that Stella York gown!!!! It was definitely made for YOU!
