"After negative experiences at high end boutiques in Raleigh/Cary and Greensboro and not finding anything close to the right dress, I began to get discouraged. So much so that I reached out to a dress maker to have a custom dress made. My mother talked me into making a trip to Smithfield to try one more place before proceeding with the custom gown. I'm glad I listened. I enjoyed every minute of my experience at Carolina Bridal World. I was greeted immediately and no one frowned or made a face when I told them my budget. I showed them a picture of a Lazaro gown that I loved. The owner immediately pulled a Davinci gown that was almost identical to the Lazaro gown. I tried on the gown. It was perfect and under $1000. The staff is polite and extremely helpful. Thank you to everyone at CBW for the great experience."
"Beginning this whole wedding process is no doubt stressful! But the most stressful thing is of course actually picking a dress. The minute I walked into Carolina Bridal all of that stress went away for a little while. All of the consultants there know their dresses like the back of their hand. As i tried on each dress and told them what I didnt like about it they knew exactly what kind of other dress to go pull for me to try on. It meant alot to me to have someone take into full consideration my thoughts about each dress and to know exactly what dress to go pull to fix each and every detail.... i would highly recommend Carolina Bridal to any bride looking for a dress! They take a lot of pride in their job and truly want you to be happy and feel as beautiful as you should in your wedding dress! I honestly can't put into words how happy they all have made me!"
"The selection of dresses is amazing, store is clean and tidy. Love that you are able to get your hands right on the dresses. With that said the service is excellent too! Everyone had a smile on their face and were so attentive. Great suggestions were made on styles and alterations. I am so happy I said yes to my dress at Carolina Bridal World!!"
"Best customer service! The girls there are great! The dresses are amazing! Who wouldn't want to get there dress here!?? Can not wait to where my pick in January! Thank you for making my dress experience phenomenal."
"I said yes to the dress today! Walked in without an appointment and felt like a vip! I had been to Cary and thought I had found the perfect dress so I tried to see if they had it there. They didn't have that dress but they did have "the one". My mom and I both had "the moment" and got teary eyed. I just couldn't leave without ordering it! Thanks Abby for your help! You ladies were great!"
"Very friendly and helpful staff! They made my experience even better. I said yes to the dress at Carolina Bridal World and would highly recommend anyone else to do the same!!"
"My husband and I shopped with our oldest daughter last Friday. The shop does not require an appointment, but still takes plenty of time to let you try on as many dresses as you like for as long as you want, letting you accessorize each one to get the full effect. We were very pleased with the experience. We did have an afternoon appointment elsewhere, but did return to place an order the same day. During the 1.5 hour appointment at the second shop we felt like we were cheating on HER DRESS at Carolina Bridal World. I can hardly wait to see her in the actual dress when the order comes in."
"I ordered a bridal gown here and came in to pick it up today. I was seriously having second thoughts about it after trying it on and began to get that sick feeling that I "settled". The ladies here really catered to me and made sure that I did not leave without a smile on my face and a gown that I truly love!"
"Went in on a Thursday and was not sure what to expect having never been in a bridal shop before. We were greeted immediately and promptly helped to dresses in my size. They had a large plus size selection which I was concerned they would not have. The ladies started me a dressing room and placed dresses for me inside. After making a selection of 15+ dresses that I liked I was allowed in dressing room with my bridal party to help put dresses on (I was even the choice for her help or bridal party help, I opted for bridal party) She came back every few minutes to see if I needed help or how I liked the dress! So helpful and also respectful of privacy. Ended up picking the 3rd dress I tried on, the dress which the bridal attendant choose for me to try on! LOVE this place and can not say enough wonderful things about it!!"
