Best Bridal Shop

Carla’s Bridal Closet is a gem of a store! Carla was so sweet and helpful. She made me so comfortable and finding a dress was so easy because they were all so beautiful!! The best part is how intimate and relaxing of a setting it is...unlike all those big, crazy Bridal stores that are so overwhelming. Carla is the best and her dresses are stunning!!! My experience was awesome and I tell everyone to get the best service and dress go to Carla’s Bridal Closet!

My True Dream Dress...

I went to Carla's after my sister in law found a beautiful dress a few years ago. I feel in love with one but Carla was not pushy at all and so open about me trying on as many as I wanted. Finally I tried on one last simple dress to help clear my head, as I was overwhelmed with how beautiful they were. I instantly fell in love with the lux satin of this dress but my mom was concerned it didn't have enough "wow." Carla helped us see all that we could make this dress but adding our own personal detail and touches in the alterations. This simple beautiful gown is perfect, and even better I get to make it my true dream dress down to the last button and crystal.

You Will Not Find More Elegant Dresses Anywhere In New Jersey...

There are not enough stars above to explain how amazing Carla at the Bridal Closet is. You will not find more elegant dresses anywhere in New Jersey for the prices she charges. She takes the time to make you feel like your wedding dress is the most important article of clothing you will ever wear. She is so warm and kind that you feel like she has known you your entire life by the time you leave your appointment. She does not rush you to make a sale and she truly cares about each bride she sees. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

A Knack For Picking Out The Perfect Dresses!

I still tell everyone about the wonderful experience I had buying my wedding dress! Carla spent over 2 hours with my mom and me showing me different dresses from her surprisingly vast selection. She really has a knack for picking out the perfect dresses. We were able to afford a nicer, better quality, and absolutely stunning dress because of Carla's unique business. I recommend her every chance I get!

Various Wedding Dress Styles & Designers!

I found The Bridal Closet by Googling on Sunday morning. I called to see if I may schedule an appointment for that day and Carla was gracious enough to schedule us for that afternoon with minimal notice. Carla was very accommodating. She has a beautiful show room in her home with various dress styles and designers. I found my dress which brought me to tears. It had everything I was looking for. This was the best experience a bride could hope for!!! Thank you Carla!

Found the perfect dress

I found my perfect dress at The Bridal Closet with the help of Carla. She has immense knowledge about different types of dresses and she was very patient with me as I tried on (and retried!) many different styles of dresses until I found the perfect one. Her gown room is beautiful and I felt very comfortable and had a great time with my sister and mother with me. Overall, I would definitely recommend and I am so happy I found the dress of my dreams. Thank you Carla!!

Make The Bridal Closet your first stop!

I most definitely recommend The Bridal Closet! My first dress appointment was at The Bridal Closet and I am so grateful I found the website after searching retailers for a specific designer I had in mind. It was convenient to be able to communicate with Carla via e-mail regarding gown styles, to exchange pictures etc. Carla was so welcoming and her shop inside her home is just so lovely! It definitely was a one of a kind personal dress shopping experience! I loved that I was able to take my time, try on several gowns, felt no pressure, and had fun! By the time I tried on the fourth gown, I had found THE dress! I'm so grateful for Carla's assistance and expertise. You can tell she loves what she does! She also recommended a lovely and very talented seamstress, Sue. After purchasing my gown, Carla helped me with picking out the perfect veil! Thanks to Carla, I found the perfect gown and veil and felt like the luckiest bride! I'm forever grateful to Carla and her Bridal Closet!

Check out The Bridal Closet!

I most definitely recommend The Bridal Closet!

Carla was so helpful from the moment she replied to my questions about her gown selections. Carla was so welcoming and her shop inside her home is just so lovely!

She provided us with so much attention, answered questions about the different styles. I loved that I was able to take my time, try on several gowns, felt no pressure, and had fun! A few days later, I returned to The Bridal Closet and said Yes to the dress! I'm so grateful for Carla's assistance and expertise.

"That's the One"

Carla absolutely made my wedding dress shopping everything I could have hoped for! I said "yes to the dress" the first day I looked! Carla is one of the sweetest women I know who made me feel very comfortable. She also has very good intuition. She put a previous dress in front of me in the mirror so when I opened my eyes my instant reaction was "That's the one." It was such a crazy moment as I slipped on the dress and immediately knew it would be mine. Carla saw me light up and wanted to make sure that I made the right choice. She even recommended me to her seamstress, who was fantastic as well and customized my dress to fit like a glove! What a team of talented professionals! I will definitely be back and already recommended new "brides-to-be" to Carla for a personal one of a kind shopping experience.

I Couldn't Be Happier with The Bridal Closet!

Carla was wonderful to work with! We talked a few days before my appointment and I sent her examples of what I was looking for. When I arrived she had dresses pulled for me that were very similar. I felt like she quickly understood my style. She was kind, calm, and very patient with me as I tried on several dresses. Her prices are very reasonable and I loved that I could take my dress home right then and there. I couldn't be happier with my dress and highly recommend The Bridal Closet!

I Bought 2 Gowns!

My wedding is Oct. 2015 and I am planning it in a little under 5 months. I was very concerned about finding a dress. Well, I found 2! I just bought them both because they were so detailed and beautiful I couldn't part with one. Since The Bridal Closet has gowns that aren't over $1000, I was able to get 2 when most people pay a few thousand for one. These dresses also go for way more money so you can't go wrong with her selection or quality. You won't find this anywhere else. Thank you Bridal Closet for making my wedding dreams come true.

Mother of the Bride loves The Bridal Closet too!

Just wanted to say that as the Mother of the Bride, I was really excited to see such beautiful gowns at an amazing price! The owner was so nice and very accomadating in letting my daughter try on many gowns. There were so many that we had 3 favorites. She was very patient in letting her try and retry on the gowns so she could decide on her dream dress! Not only did we purchase a gown, but the veil also.!!! Such a private and stress-free experience.

See The Bridal Closet First!

Last night I got to say “Yes to the dress” at The Bridal Closet. The Bridal Closet has such a nice selection of beautiful gowns and all kinds of styles to choose from. My guests got to sit in soft plush seats while I received personalized service and I never felt rushed. My dress is beautiful, I can’t wait to see the look on my family and fiancé’s face when I walk down the aisle. Going anywhere else would be a huge mistake. See The Bridal Closet first! THANK YOU!
