“I wish I could rate Carino Bridal more than just five stars!!! …is so kind and accommodating! I would recommend her to anyone who wants flawless alterations! I love how Cecilia has a separate private dressing room that is perfect for fittings and there's plenty of room for friends and family to join! I would recommend Carino to anyone who's looking for the perfect place for the most important alterations!” -Annabell J.
“BEST TAILOR EVER. I bought a discounted wedding dress that was a few sizes too big because I fell in love with the lace. I was looking for someone that could help me REDESIGN it to what I was envisioning- removing the halter, adding some delicate straps, and reworking the lace around the chest. Cecilia listened to all of my comments and didn't hesitate to share with me what would make the dress even better. She was familiar with the designer and knew how to alter and manipulate it. She did an absolutely amazing job bringing my vision to life! I couldn't recommend her enough. My husband even went in and had her make his coat for the wedding. I ended up asking her to make my veil too as I knew she would make it beautiful! Thank you so much for making our special day so beautiful!” - Brenda B.
“I can't believe I'm just getting to this but Carino is AMAZING! I got married last August and had taken my dress in roughly in May/June. My dress needed minor work, some letting out, bustle, and my straps were being changed to cross in the back, but Cecilia was amazing. She took such care with my dress and always knew exactly what I wanted. There was one point I went in for a final fitting and I had gained some weight and I was a MESS. I was so upset and crying but she was so sweet and caring. She fixed the dress no problems and made me look like a princess! Thank you everyone here for helping me look my best on my wedding day!” - Cheyenne C.
“Cecilia and her staff are incredibly skilled, and nice; so much so that I drove an hour away from home just to have them alter my wedding gown…They gave me ideas on how to add a little more flair to my wedding gown to compliment my body and it turned out beautifully. I can't praise them enough. Thank you to all the wonderful ladies at Carino's” - Jay E.
“Wow! The reviews say it all….My dress was not easy to alter but that did not stop Carino Bridal…I then had my mom and sister get their alterations done here and we were all blown away. It is a cute shop and they make you feel special.” -Hailey W.
“They did such an amazing job on my dress. It was perfect! Every step of the way, super helpful, honest and willing to work with a budge. I felt like a princess during each fitting and on my wedding day. Could not have asked for a sweeter vender or experience! Definitely recommend!! I came from north OC to have them do my dress, was worth every bit of traffic and time it took to get it done. Amazing job ladies! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!” -Brittany C.
