Our Philosophy
Carine’s Bridal Atelier highlights the artistry of design in bridal fashion, and showcases the personality of individual designers as it comes out in their gowns. Carine’s offers an unparallel wedding gown expertise and tailors bridal fashion to a body type, personality and destination.

When Carine began sharing her idea to designers such as Angel Sanchez, Kenneth Pool, Mellissa Sweet and Reem Acra they encouraged her and pledged their support. Currently, over 100 of the best dresses from Carine’s favorite designers are onsite at the Georgetown boutique.

The store is built to be an oasis, away from high speed life. Every bride entering will be afforded privacy by the spaciousness, a sense of calm, and personalized attention by fashion experts. The store is designed to offer a soothing experience that creates an enjoyable event to share with those most loved.

Carine’s Bridal Atelier’s mission is to provide brides with unparallel service and a customized experience. Carine’s Bridal Atelier is fashion savvy and focused on you.

Your aisle is our runway.
Carine’s Bio
Carine began her career in fashion over 10 years ago when she moved to New York City to join the design team at AEFFE (the parent company of Moschino, Jean Paul Guteiler and Alberta Ferretti). When family concerns brought her back to Washington DC, she began working with Vera Wang, and was eventually hired away to Priscilla of Boston. After local success and recognition, and as her reputation grew, she was courted to Saks Fifth Avenue in Tyson’s Corner to head the bridal salon.

Carine’s experience at other DC salons afforded her the opportunity to interface with the design community in New York City. Twice a year the industry gathers for bridal fashion week where there are fashion shows, runways, models and designer parties. Carine has attended every one, where it was her job to hand-select wedding dresses off of the runway to carry in store. Over the years she developed close relationships with some of her favorite designers, and made many friends at salons in New York City and across the country. Carine noticed that there was a big difference between the typical bridal salon in New York and the typical bridal salon in DC. New York bridal salons tended to be more sophisticated, the staff more knowledgeable (often with a background in design), and the collection of dresses larger. Carine felt that with her experience, contacts, and vision, she could bring the look and feel of a New York City salon to the Mid-Atlantic. Read less

Carine's has so many dresses to choose from with various price points and the ladies there listen and help you find a dress that fits your personality and style. The alterations team is amazing and so kind. I just had the best experience throughout all of my fittings. Carine is definitely intimately involved and checks in frequently during fittings, etc. Highly recommend!

If I had to choose one word to describe Carine, Jessica, Maddie, and the entire team at Carine's, it would be: Amazing. Ok, I'd actually like to throw a second word in there, too: Unparalleled. They go above and beyond to make sure the gown search experience is perfect and they truly care about their clients. Throughout my long dress journey, I never felt like just another customer, and Carine even gave me her cell phone number at one point in case I had any questions or concerns. I think that says a lot.

I first visited Carine's a few years before my own engagement, as a supportive bridesmaid, and the salon made such a wonderful first impression that I knew I'd be back one day for my own wedding. Fast forward to my engagement in 2013 and Carine's was at the top of my list. The salon couldn't be more gorgeous and the selection of gowns is incredible, but I really had my eye on Monique Lhuillier from the get-go.

Jessica was my (incredible, knowledgeable, personable, knew-the-right-questions-to-ask-and-truly-listened-to-me) consultant, and I finally said "YES!" on my third visit to Carine's. It was just such a wonderful experience, and the mini champagne bottles my mom and I were given to celebrate finding "THE dress" didn't hurt either!

I ran into a few dress snafus (not by any fault of Carine's), so I ended up having more fittings than normal. This just meant that I had the pleasure of getting to know the amazing staff even better than I would have in a different situation. Each time I saw my dress I fell more and more in love with it, and I couldn't have been happier on my wedding day! I would rewind and work with Carine's all over again in a heartbeat!

Don't waste your time going anywhere else in DC, Carine's Bridel Atelier has the best selection and service you can find! Carine's was the second bridal shop I visited on my dress hunt. At the first shop I saw a belt I loved and the store would not sell it seperately. Then I saw the same belt at Carine's and they sold it to me! I ended up finding a sample dress that I loved and looked perfect with the belt, but I had to make a decision on the spot because they couldn't put the sample on hold. The sales associate was so helpful in helping me make a decision and I left that day with the dress! Being a sample we had some issues along the way with the drycleaning and Carine went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the dress. The alterations were perfect and the dress couldn't have looked more perfect on my wedding day!

Carine's has been awesome! All of the staff is super friendly. I first went in with a friend for her gown and I knew I would find mine here as well. Kellie is so amazing! I felt like I was with family in this special moment. Great selection, gorgeous gowns, but most of all they make it an unforgettable, amazing experience.

Every part of my experience at Carine's was amazing. From dress shopping to alterations I could not say more about how great the shop, the staff or the dress was. I was initially very nervous for dress shopping but my fears were relieved the moment I arrived in Carine's beautiful shop and started working with the staff. They were professional, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. And then I began trying on dresses. A good variety of classic and modern dresses coupled with a staff that knows their designers and what will work best on a bride's body made for an easy choice. I found my dress the first day I shopped and this was totally due to shopping at Carine's. I could not have been happier and everyone loved my dress!
