Carine’s Bridal Atelier

Carine’s Bridal

June 23, 2014

Engaged? That shiny rock is finally on your finger… Your first thought and phone call (other than to your parents!) is to Carine’s Bridal Atelier’s fabulous bridal shop, located in the heart of Georgetown (right? if not, it should be!) Trust me when I say that Carine and her team are an absolute pleasure to work with.

Their mission is to provide brides with an unparalleled service and customized experience, and you get just this when you walk into the doors of their boutique oasis. I have had the opportunity to see Carine in action at Bridal Market, and lets just say, she is a pro! I love that when talking to designers, she puts her clients first, thinking about what her D.C. brides will love and how to adjust the gown to their wants and needs.

If you haven’t heard, we have big news…

When Carine’s Bridal Atelier opened in 2006, it was designed to be the luxury bridal destination for the Washington, D.C. area. Within just a few years the store has grown at a very high rate and will be opening a two story second location on Wisconsin Avenue in winter 2014. The second location will continue to offer the designer gowns and the custom alterations service the store has become known for, while also ushering in new, international collections by Zuhair Murad, Inbal Dror, and Berta. With more space, even more exceptional designers, and high-end architecture, the latest location for Carine’s Bridal Atelier will provide nothing but bridal bliss for their clients.

Remember, you don’t have to wait until Winter of 2014 to visit the amazing Carine’s Bridal Atelier!
