I searched several bridal stores in my home town for the perfect wedding gown but could not find anything that I loved. My best friend has always raved about Carrie Karibo Boutique in Cincinnati, so I took a day off from work, got in my car and I drove almost 200 miles. I and so happy that I did because it was totally worth the time! This was a wonderful place with a great staff. I told the ladies what I was looking for and they showed me several gorgeous gowns including the one I will be walking down the aisle in. I am so happy I took Ami’s advice and whet to this place. The selection is so different from all of the generic bridal stores and they made it so easy and comfortable!

I thought finding MY wedding gown was going to be impossible until I walked into Carrie Karibo Boutique. I was uninspired by gowns I saw in magazines and overwhelmed by the sea of awful looking gowns in neighboring stores. I did not know exactly what I wanted, but thought I was never going to find it. I walked into Carrie Karibo Boutique and felt instant relief! They offered a targeted selection of gorgeous gowns that suited my taste. Carrie assisted me and is truly passionate about what she does. I felt so comfortable and thrilled that I found my gown! It became real as I could finally begin to envision my wedding day!

Finding your wedding dress can be very stressful for some people, I am no exception. I went to a couple of dress shops and my anxiety was even more elevated. I was about on a meltdown before I fortunately went to Carrie Karibo Boutique where I felt right at home. The staff was friendly and patient. They didn’t rush me and listened to what I wanted. I found the perfect dress, in which I must say I look fabulous in! I would recommend this shop to anyone that is getting married.

I loved my experience at Carrie Karibo Boutique. The boutique is cute and the dresses are beautiful. Being a plus size bride, I was nervous about finding a dress that would be flattering on my shape. Carrie and her staff gave me their full attention and found the most gorgeous dress for me. Everyone in my party cried when I came out of the dressing room. I felt so beautiful walking down the aisle in it!!! A great big thank you to everyone for making me feel special!

We had a wonderful experience! The ladies helped us find the perfect mix & match bridesmaids dressed for my wedding. All my girls got to pick out dresses in the style that they wanted. Happy bridesmaids equals very happy bride . What a fun day!

I had the most wonderful time fining my wedding dress a Carrie Karibo Boutique. It was the perfect day that I always imagined it would be. I could go on and on about how amazing the boutique is but just go make an appointment and see for yourself. It is truly the best! (Ask for Sherry, she was wonderful)

I have bought bridesmaids dresses from Carrie Karibo three times over the last four years for my friend’s weddings. So, I knew exactly where to go now that it is my time to get married and I was not disappointed. I bought both my bridal gown and bridesmaid’s dresses there. The boutique continues to bring in fresh designs and styles. My girls where so excited with the dresses that I picked out. Needless to say, I would recommend this store to anyone getting married.

I was not looking forward to trying to find bridesmaids dresses for my wedding. Over the holidays both of my cousins told me not to worry, just go to Carrie Karibo Boutique and it will easy and enjoyable. So, I took their advice and am so glad I did. The whole thing was so much fun. The only hard part was picking from the all of the choices they had to offer. I eventually decided on two different styles, so my girls have a choice on which dress to wear. As my family did to me, I would definitely recommend Carrie Karibo Boutique to anyone!

I had a wonderful time shopping for my bridesmaid’s dresses at Carrie Karibo Boutique. They had great dresses that don’t look like the typical cheap ones that you find at most places. I was able to mix and match different designs to allow each of my girls to pick out the dress that they like the most! The ladies that work there were so much fun and made the experience a truly memorable one!

I just moved to Chicago and went to several bridal stores looking for the perfect dress but did not find any that I fell in love with. I was worried that I would not find “the one”. Fortunately, I was home for Thanksgiving and my friend told me to go to Carrie Karibo Boutique. My appointment was so much fun and most importantly very memorable because I found “the one”. I can’t say enough about this store. The staff was so nice and sweet and made a great start to my holiday season!

I love this store! The dresses are amazing & Carrie and her staff are wonderful! They are one of the few stores that actually took the time to ask what I wanted and found a dress that fit into my budget. They seemed genuinely excited to help me find my perfect dress. I am looking forward to going back after the holidays to find my bridesmaid dresses. I would recommend this store to anyone looking for a fun bridal shopping experience.

Words cannot describe the experience that I had at Carrie Karibo Boutique. I had been to 4 or5 salons in the area and I can honestly say that none of them came close to this boutique! The customer service was second to none! The girls were so friendly, knew what they were doing and did not pressure you in the slightest. They have a nice section of bridal gowns that are not mass dresses that you keep running into at every store. I was lucky enough to have Sherry help me every step of the way. My dress was handpicked by her, even down to the accessories that accented my wedding dress. If it wasn’t for Sherry’s keen eye, I would have never tried it on. But with a gentle push, I did and I am ever so glad that I did. I don’t think I could have ever imagined what the finished product would turn out like, but I can honestly say I felt like a princess. I know it sounds cliché, but it is true and I could have not done it without Carrie Karibo Boutique! They even have a great selection of mother of bride dresses too! My mom went back two weeks later to get her dress!

Disappointing

We selected dresses from Carrie Karibo for my wedding with the help of two sales associates. We were given a written quote for the dresses. Two days later, when one of my bridesmaids called to order the dress, she was told the dress was not available. We selected different dresses and were again given a price quote and ordered and paid for one of the dresses. A week later, another bridesmaid called to order her dress. She was told WE (!) were mistaken regarding the price. I called the sales associate and she tried to tell me we had been interested in short dresses. No, I said, the WRITTEN quote and order clearly states long dresses. The store refused to honor the price they quoted and used for the first sale. We canceled our order and took our business to a store with better informed sales staff who did not repeatedly bungle our order.

Save Time - Skip This Shop!

I wrote something much more verbose but the website says it was too long to post. In a nutshell this is what I HATED about Cincinnati Bride:
- No sales associates offer to assist- you're on your own unless you specifically request help or unless your a teenager with your mom looking for prom dresses (they must work on commission every prom shopper was greeted immediately and pressured into the first dress they tried on)
-sales associates are rude- they even implied to one of my maids that they wouldn't have an appropriate size for her to try on because they only carry ""certain sizes"" and they weren't at all diplomatic about it.
-they cut the designer's tags out of the dresses so you can't google the designer/ locate dresses at other boutiques.
Mainly I don't enjoy the lack of attention from the sales associates. For most women their weddings are the biggest days of their lives and the lack of support and consideration for the process of locating bridesmaids dresses to fit all sizes, shapes, and budgets was disgusting.
I don't know any sales rep names but stay away from the older British lady she was a total snob- and believe me -she had no reason to be so.
Helpful Hint: If you find a dress you like there but don't want to buy it at this awful store: the designer name is abbreviated and embroidered on the back - with a little detective work you can figure it out and find another retailer in the area that carries it.
