Finding A Dress That’s Uniquely You

“Our goal is for the bride to look and feel her best when she leaves the store and on her wedding day,” says Carrie Karibo, owner of Carrie Karibo Bridal. From the moment a bride visits the boutique’s revamped website to when she picks up her dress, Carrie Karibo Bridal brides are pampered. 

“The experience starts on our website. It’s all about the modern bride and we wanted our brand to reflect that – it’s really been nine years in the making,” says Karibo. 

Brides-to-be will find a preview of what the boutique has to offer on the website. It includes a list of the exclusive designers carried, five images for each designer and price range. 

“I encourage brides to visit our website to get an idea of what designers they like that are within their budget before coming in,” says Karibo. 

The intimate shopping experience transcends the website – when a bride comes to the boutique they get an intimate, personalized consultation. “We are really here to listen to what the bride wants and we know the parameters of each designer, so we can help her bring her vision to life,” says Karibo. “I encourage brides to share what she likes and dislikes as she tries on dresses, so I can find a dress that is uniquely her.” 

Carrie Karibo Bridal carries a variety of exclusive designers that brides won’t find anywhere else in the region. Designers include Amy Kuschel, Leanne Marshall, Judd Waddell and many more.

“We can personalize and adjust anything to accommodate what the bride wants,” says Karibo. “This year we’re adding a collection of separates so the bride will get to choose a bodice, skirt and different ways to top it off.” Carrie Karibo Bridal will carry separates from Martina Liana and Theia.
