Thank you so much to the wonderful team at Thumbelina bridal. My experience was incredible form beginning to end. I just returned from my honeymoon, and all throughout I could not forget about the service and exceptional work that was given to me. I booked my custom wedding gown with Thumbelina after searching all over (even flew to NY) for the perfect wedding dress. My dress came out beautiful, perfect fit, excellent beadwork and hand embroidery throughout. I was a bit skeptical because my wedding gown vision required a lot of labor and excerpt craftsmanship, but I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED because not only was my gown BEAUTIFUL, the owner was so fair about pricing (she really really is the best) and if I had this gown made elsewhere, I would have paid through the nose. Instead, my gown was VERY affordable but looks high end. She also designed 11 bridesmaids gowns, my mother's gown and three flower girls. Each one so beautiful, each one perfectly made. They even gave us complimentary handbags for each of my bridesmaids, and my mother. I was also provided an entire trousseau (spelling?) which was FREE of charge and COMPLIMENTARY with my gown, included a beautiful headpiece of Swarovski crystals, garters, beaded veil, a hand bag, and they even embroidered my monogram in baby blue on the inside of my dress lining. I can't tell you enough how happy I am about this place, and for those who are interested in going, please tell them Lisa sent you. THANK YOU SO MUCH THUMBELINA SALON! MEMORIES FOREVER! :)

The Perfect Dress & The BEST Service

Carlyn is the BEST!! I was referred to Carlyn by my maid of honor. Carlyn was totally honest with her and told her it would cost her less to buy her dress elsewhere. That honesty was so refreshing that when I asked for a place to get my dress made, my maid of honor immediately told me to talk to Carlyn.

Every meeting with Carlyn was half celebration of my upcoming wedding and half therapy session. She listened to all my complaints and fears and reassured me. She never rushed the process.

The Thumbelina Couture boutique is beautiful. I noticed that when I visited Carlyn for my fittings I would see the girlfriends and spouses of celebrities shopping in the boutique. Caryln has a stash of gently used Chanel and other high-end designer outfits for sale and discounted prices.

Most importantly, my wedding dress was spectacular!! Carlyn designed it based on my figure, color choices and preferences. I never imagined I could afford such a beautiful dress with my low budget. Also, I wanted a champagne-colored silk taffeta dress, which is not easy to find. Carlyn used her connections in the industry to find exactly the material and beading I wanted. And, she made a matching purse, hair accessory and gave me the design sketch she made of the dress. I cannot thank her enough for making my dream a reality.

Beautiful Dresses, Incredible Service

Carlyn is a very talented designer who is adept at working with you to create your perfect dress. She also exhibits a commitment to customer service that I don't experience much anymore. The first time I came to the store, my three year old daughter accidentally wet the floor. Without batting an eyelash, Carlyn graciously loaned us some of her daughter's clothes and even took the time to calm my distressed little girl. I always looked forward to walking in and being welcomed by Carlyn's smiling face. I highly recommend Thumbelina!

Beautiful Gown, beautiful shop, excellent service!

From beginning to end, I was treated with the highest regard and professionalism. I first met the owner last year when I was just newly engaged looking for a gown. She took the time to listen to me and not pressure me into anything. She even recommended for me to go to as many bridal shops as possible to see what is out there. Eventually, I decided to go with Thumbelina and don't regret it one bit. She even worked with my budget, because I could only afford so much. Even then, she made the gown of my dreams and exceeded my expectations.
My gown was magnificent, my veil, headpiece, and all accessories were so beautifully made, thanks to the wonderful sweet staff of Thumbelina and its owner, Carlyn. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING! LOVE YOU GUYS!

what a great place!

What a lovely shop, and what a talented designer. My daughter got her wedding tiara from Thumbelina, and not only is it beautiful, she's saving it for her daughter. I returned to Thumbelina to have my mother-of-the-groom dress made when my son married, and it was beautifully made, and exactly what I wanted. The designer listened, advised, helped me to make it exactly what I wanted. great place

I recently picked up my wedding gown this weekend, which was custom-made for me. It was about a year ago when I first walked into this shop and met its owner. I was going through many decision making obstacles at the time, and she encouraged me to look around and not feel pressured into booking with her until I knew for sure. I am so glad that I did, because just recently, I had my last final fitting and my dress is magnificent! Everything from my veil, to accessories and bridal gown was carefully made down to the last detail. Although it took about a year for the process to finally come to fruition, every bit of the wait was worth it because the final outcome made me speechless. I also lost some weight which they were very sensitive to, and they made it easy for me to continue with my weight loss goals without a problem. I am getting married this weekend and I cannot wait to put on my wedding gown. It is perfect! Thank you Carolyn for making my dreams come true! So happy! :)
