I went to M.A Carr feeling very anxious. It was my very first time trying on wedding dresses and I had absolutely no idea what kind of dress I wanted. As soon as I met with my consultant Melissa all my anxiety was gone. She assured me that we would try on as many dresses as I could handle and took me step by step on what to look for in my perfect dress. Never once did I feel rushed or uncomfortable. An hour and a half (Yes, they actually spend time with you) I found my dress! After, I met with the owner Mary Ann Carr, who answers every question you could possibly have. She never makes you sign anything until you feel 100% comfortable! My experience here was nothing short of amazing. I would recommend M.A. Carr Bridal to any and every bride.

I just left M.A. Carr and cannot put into words what a WONDERFUL experience I had. I felt extremely comfortable and my nerves were immediately calmed. Dahlia (sorry about the spelling) was an amazing person to work with, she listened to my feelings and what I wanted and I felt she instantly "got" my vision. Not once did I feel rushed during our appointment (which lasted 2+ hours). I never felt pressured to make a decision or purchase. This was my first time trying on gowns and I ended up with a beautiful dress and veil. Thank you to the wonderful ladies of M.A. Carr!!!!!!!!

I said YES to the Dress today!!! My Sophia Tolli Gown is everything and more I could ever imagine. From walking through the door to exiting I just had a wonderful expierence, Melissa met with me and went over my budget 1k-2k, what I expected and liked in a dress, she then pulled beautiful gowns and on the second gown, which I was unsure of on the hanger ended up being the ONE. Its like shes pyschic and knows exactly what you like and what looks absolutely stunning, :) it was definitly a wow factor gown and under budget at $1,500 tax included :). But not only my consultant every girl in the Bridal Shop was just terrific they were all so friendly and helpful! I can not wait to go back for my bridesmaid, flowergirls, MOB and MOG dress, this shop is so worth doing the whole works for my entourage :)

Loved my dress! It was perfect and no other dresses I tried compared to it! I tried on dresses at Kleinfelds and at Vera Wang in NYC and budget was not in issue and still chose the dress at MA Carr, it was absolute perfection! The seamstress was amazing and and had many appts with me and took the time to show my bridal party how to get me into it many times! Great place and highly recommend choosing them for your dress!

The girls at M A Carr made finding my wedding dress an enjoyable, simple process. It was the 1st place I went to try on dresses and by listening to what I was looking for, I found my dress right away. I live out of town and they were very accommodating with scheduling trials and fittings for when I was able to come into town. There was a problem with two of my bridesmaids dresses (the company's fault, not theirs) and they went above and beyond to fix the issue. Thanks again!

Thank you so much to M.A. Carr for helping me find my perfect dress! I tried on MANY different dresses and they were extremely patient with me. They asked me what I liked and what I didn't like and they gave me many amazing options to choose from. They were very organized throughout the entire process and once I picked my perfect dress, they scheduled my fittings and everything went very smoothly! The seamstress that I worked with was very nice and very helpful and she made the finishing touches on my dress look flawless. Thank you, M.A. Carr, for being a part of my special day and for helping me find my dream dress! :)

MA Carr was one of three local bridal shops that I visited on my search for a wedding dress. My other experiences had been fine, but the service that I received at MA Carr was over the top amazing. Everyone there was friendly, helpful, and professional. Despite my giving the vaguest description possible, Rebekah pulled dress after dress that was absolutely beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. The reception lighting in their dressing area sealed the deal. I felt completely informed throughout the entire process - from trying on, to ordering, to altering... I was just so impressed.

Though they didn't carry the specific bridesmaid dress that I had fallen in love with and absolutely needed to have, they special ordered them so that my girls would get the 10% discount and not have to travel to Rochester to pick them up. I can't tell you how helpful they were.

Every single aspect of my experience with MA Carr exceeded my expectations. I would recommend them to any and everyone. You'd be crazy to go anywhere else!

I just went in to try on gowns without an appointment ON A SATURDAY and they were very nice. They let me pick 7 dresses and I only waited about a half hour. They were all super nice and Samantha was very helpful and not pushy and did not rush me at all. She actually suggested MORE dresses to try on. The gowns were way cheaper than I thought! It is small in there but if you make an appointment she said I would get a large room. Ill def be going back there to purchase!

Like all brides, I first went to David's Bridal. Very unhappy with the experience, a friend took me to MA Carr Bridal - I did not go to any other bridals salons after my visit here. Samantha (the associate who took care of me) was absolutely amazing and really gave me the wedding dress shopping experience I was longing for! I must have tried on a hundred dresses and they were so accommodating. I fell in love with my dress there and the rest is history! If you want the experience that every bride should have ... stop in!!

MA Carr is THE place to go!! The service at MA Carr is above and beyond any place I went too to even try on gowns and that continued all the way until the end. My Samantha was my bridal consulant and will be highly recommended if anyone asks me where and who they should go too. She and the salon was very attentive to my likes and needs in my dress. As for the wedding day, everyone said how much they loved my dress, I was so afraid to get a strapless since I am not a strapless wearing kind of person and have seen many brides "fall out" so to speak!! I did not have one problem with that. The top molded to my body and stayed put that is how good their seamstress is!!

I bought my dress at M.A. Carr in October of 2011 at their Sample Sale. I got a beautiful lace overlay dress with beading throughout, a 3 layer arm-length veil with pearls at the bottom, and an adorable bridal purse ALL for $300 AFTER tax. The outfit was absolutely stunning at my wedding and no one could believe the deals I had gotten. I did not have my alterations done at the store, however, I had them done at The Village Tailor which is nearby.

LOVED my dress and the quality of service provided my the hostesses and seamstresses at M.A.Carr! I bought my dress of the rack because the style was being discontinued. The only size remaining was a 14, but Karen, my tireless seamstress, spent 5+ fittings making certain it fit perfectly. Fitting appointments were centered around my unusual schedule with zero hassle. Karen was funny and a joy to work with! I felt beautiful on my wedding day with the help of M.A. Carr!

I need many alterations as I got closer to the wedding and they did as much as they could to make it fit me perfectly. I travelled to many larger cities and found the team at this shop as professionally informed as any other.

I decided to get my wedding dress and both our mothers' dresses from M. A. Carr and it was the best experience imaginable. The ladies at M. A. Carr are so professional and friendly it was terrific. I am not a skinny girl and am no where near comfortable in my own skin, but the ladies there made me feel so comfortable and were honest about what worked with my curvatious figure and what did not. I have never felt so comfortable and at home while trying on formal gowns. Not only where they good with making me feel beautiful, but I had torn my rotator cuff in May and it was at the peak of my fittings. These ladies were so gentle and accomadating to my injury. My dress was gorgeous and the bustle they created was one of the best I have seen. I can not speak highly enough of them. They will always be the place I tell people to go to. They are just AMAZING!

M.A. Carr was above and beyond delightful to work with. They had a wide range of pricing in dresses and a wide variety of styles. They also have some beautiful accessories. My hair combs is stunning and will becoming a part of our decor now that I am done wearing it.
My original consultant, Amanda, was helpful, kind and very funny! I had a BLAST finding the "perfect dress" and she listened to everything I asked for. She stayed within my budget and brought dresses that were within the styles I was looking for, but also used her very professional opinion to give suggestions. She was great!!!
I had the pleasure of working with and talking with a number of the other consultants and I can not think of one bad thing to say about any of them. They were all super friendly without being pushy!
The seamstress Karen is very talented. My dress required a number of alterations due to losing 18 pounds after ordering the dress and wanting some modifications and she did them all beautifully. I had multiple fitting appointments so we could get the dress just right and I loved every minute of it.
Overall, I'm sad that I don't get to go back to M.A. Carr regularly! Each and every appointment was a pleasure. And my dress was GORGEOUS!

The personal attention I received at MA Carr was unbelievable. I had changed my mind from the dress I originally put my deposit on and when I called to change they new they remembered the exact dress number and make of the dress I was changing it to! Every time we walked in we were greeted by name, and they fitted my dress perfectly to my body. Originally MA suggested I order my dress in a size 14-12, and the sample I tried on was a 10 so I ordered a 10, which made me extremely nervous going against their suggestion, but when the dress came it fit like a glove! Only alteration was the bustline needed to be tighter which was an easy fix. I also ordered my shoes from them and had them dyed by them. They had swarovski crystals so it was more difficult to dye, but they matched the perfectly! They came out great! Everyone loved my dress and my blue crystal shoes! Would highly recommend them!

Ladies who are looking for a bargain dress, check out M.A. Carr's sample sale in Octobers. I went and found my perfect dress for $200! While I didn't have my own private consultant, I still felt that the staff at M.A. Carr were courteous and respectful to all the bargain-hunting bride that day. They had ample styles and sizes in the sample sale.

I also had my alterations done at M.A. Carr. I was completely satisfied with my service, albeit for my final fitting when there were about 3 brides who were getting alterations completed at the same time. I had to wait about 20 minutes just to meet with the seamstress.

If you want to feel special, beautiful, and get that individualized attention...book an appointment at MA Carr. Their staff is well trained to find the right dress for you. I worked with Dahlia (I apologize if I spelled that wrong) who was great. She asked me a few questions about what I was looking for and my price point and came back with three perfect options. I fell in love with the first one that I tried on and bought it that day. My fittings were done with Jill who was also a pleasure to work with. She was efficient and professional and her work was done beautifully. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I got both my dress & my bridesmaid dresses at MA Carr & was beyond pleased with both! They carried certain bridal gown designers that I couldn't find anywhere else resulting a a wide variety of beautiful & unique gowns. Selecting a bridesmaid dress was the most challenging because the only sample of the color I wanted was the size of a postage stamp which made it difficult to decide. They were great & ordered a larger sample of the color for me to look at which helped me make my decision. The only negative experience was around the alteration process. The dress I ordered looked completely different in the silhouette from the sample I tried on because the sample was such a larger size. It took a couple of appts to figure out what needed to be done so the dress looked the way I wanted, but in the end we figured it out!

The ladies at MA Carr are fantastic! Not only did they help me to find the perfect dress, but they also made sure that the alterations on it made it look wonderful on me! Their professionalism, selection, and attention to detail is what truly sets them apart from any other dress retailer in the WNY area. I would recommend that any bride in Western NY, regardless of whether or not you live close to Orchard Park, make the trip to MA Carr. It is definitely worth it!

M A Carr was a WONDERFUL experience! It was the first place I had been to try on dresses and since my wedding is still 14 months away I thought it was going to be a day just to start looking decide was style I liked. But my consultant was amazing and helped me to find the dress of my dreams!! (I feel horrible I cant remember her name right now but she was a very sweet blonde girl! ask for her!! :) )The store was also very busy ( I thought for a Monday afternoon) but all the staff really took the time to make sure each person got the attention they needed and deserved. (I would definitely recommend making an appointment though) You also get A LOT of coupons/deals for other vendors and future purchases at the store for buying your dress there which is a nice perk! I am very excited to continue working with M A Carr for the rest of bridal/bridal attire needs!!

I was really impressed with this bridal shop! All the girls who worked there were so nice and helpful. They had a great selection and had the dress of my dreams that I saw in a magazine! The alterations were excellent and done quickly. The shop itself is so pretty and has a great area to try on your dress in. The only reason I gave 4 stars for responsiveness was because some of my bridesmaids said that noone ever answered the phone when they called, but they did receive a callback within a day. There was also a very nice selection of accessories and they were very helpful when I was choosing.

I purchased my wedding dress from M.A. Carr and had a very positive experience. The staff is so friendly and they really take an interest in their customers. It is sometimes difficult to get an answer at the salon, but they are always good about calling back once you leave a message. I still think it is just the cutest thing that the parking space lines in their lot are done with pink paint!

I found it a bit difficult to find a shop with a selection of modern dresses when I began looking in Buffalo, NY. Many places had the same dresses they had been selling for years. But not at MA Carr. She had a beautiful selection of very modern dresses - in fact, it was really hard for me to choose one! All the girls that work there are so sweet, and professional. I couldn't have been happier, and they did a great job with the alterations as well.

This place was great. I'm getting an early start on getting things together for my wedding in 2016. I showed a picture of a dress that I was looking for and Erin went and pulled dresses. They all were so beautiful. She knew just what to pick. The experience was perfect and everyone was so nice, friendly and helpful.

We stopped at this salon at the recommendation of several friends who had recently gotten bridal gowns there. At first, while we felt welcome (I was with my mother), I was somewhat uncomfortable with the seemingly put-on friendliness of the staff. Still, one doesn't spend much time in bridal salons, and I think MA Carr is simply maintaining an air of occasion on their salon, and we soon became comfortable with the atmosphere. Jillian was just incredibly helpful and paid careful attention to my taste; she actually brought me the dress I ended up purchasing when I had previously overlooked it. She is exactly what many brides are looking for: helpful, attentive, relaxed, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Beyond Jillian's wonderful work, I was truly impressed with the work of the salon's seamstress, who was very flexible with fittings as I was an out-of-town bride. The overall experience was excellent, and I absolutely recommend this salon.

They are a very busy salon at times, so often I had to leave a message when I called but they always called me back the same day. They scheduled me for my final fittings after hours because they had so many appointments lined up already. Everyone there is very friendly and helpful. The dresses are a bit more expensive than David's but definitely worth it if you are looking for something a little different than what everyone else has.

I had an appointment at MA Carr a few weeks ago. When we first walked in, it was a madhouse. Apparently there was some sort of trunk show going on. I would have appreciated knowing this in advance, or I would have moved my appointment to a different time. This was not a time I wanted to feel crowded or rushed. However, my consultant was super nice and helpful. She asked what kind of dress I was looking for and pulled a bunch of dresses for me. She was very receptive to what I wanted and and did not want. MA Carr has some great designers and a great selection of dresses. However, my biggest problem there was that every dress I tried on was in a size 12-14. I am a size 2 in regular pants/dresses, so probably a 4-6 in wedding gowns. Every dress looked absolutely ridiculous on me. My consultant had to wrestle with every dress to clip up the back to make it look like it fit. But of course, the look was extremely distorted on me. It was kind of absurd. How can I spend all that money on a dress when I can't get an accurate picture of what I would look like in it? How can you expect a size 2 girl to try on a size 14 dress? You wouldn't try to get a size 14 girl in a size 2 or she would feel miserable. I understand that the salon cant have every dress in every size, but maybe a midway like size 6 or 8 dress would be nice. Needless to say, I did not have a magical moment with any of the dresses there, but maybe I would have had they carried appropriate sizes. I did VERY MUCH appreciate that they let us take pictures of me in the dresses. Most salons won't let you. However, once I looked back at the pictures I looked so large and distorted in every single dress that it only confirmed that I couldn't buy a dress at MA Carr. I would recommend this vendor, as my problems were personal. I would just want to warn any bride who is on the smaller side to be aware of this.

MA Carr is pricey but has a beautiful selection. I absolutely loved my dress but my experience there wasn't as great. The dress they had in stock fit me well in the bust and waist, but was a tad tight in the hips. I was buying a mermaid-style dress, so it was meant to be pretty tight fitting anyway. It zipped, I could sit in it, and it was early January (right after Christmas indulgence). After I chose the dress and got my measurements, the staff at MA Carr suggested that I order a dress 2 SIZES BIGGER than the dress in stock due to my hip measurements!! I swear they just want you to spend a fortune on alterations. Deciding it would be cheaper to alter the size of my rear by 1 INCH, I refused to do so, and ordered the dress in the same size that I tried on. They made me sign a waiver saying that they were not responsible for improper fit, which I did begrudgingly. I found this whole process pretty insulting. I get that there are probably women out there that think they'll lose all this weight before their wedding and then don't, but I seriously had one inch. And the dress would have looked and felt fine if I hadn't lost any. When my dress came in, I tried it on and it fit like.a.glove! I came out of that dressing room and told every bride in there not to let the store order her a dress that is WAY too big for you! If I had, I would have spent hundreds on alterations! Instead, I signed their insulting waiver, and only paid for the dress to be bustled!

Rant aside, MA Carr still has beautiful dresses and decent customer service. I'm sure the other bridal shops also try and make a killing off alterations, so just beware!

First...good stuff - best selections of dresses in Buffalo. But man do they know it. They rush you, they are stingy on fitting you and giving you any information. Plus, they really pushed me into getting a dress 2 sizes bigger than I wanted (1 full size bigger than I currently am?!) And of course it's enormous! No wiggle room on ANYTHING!! I paid over $3500 for my dress, you think you could discount on some accessories. NOPE!! I don't see many other girls in your shop spending that kind of money on a dress!! A couple of the girls are good, but the others make you feel so rushed & demand you sign your life away. I hate that feeling!! That's why we drove to Ohio for everything else!! There was no way I was buying one other single thing from that shop!!!!!
But I did find the dress of my dreams there - so I guess it's a 50/50 split! Although - they just sell them.....

I would recommend a cute little shop in Ohio – Something White! Worth the drive!!

I loved this place at first but there was horrible service after the bridesmaid dresses were ordered. I ordered the dresses in February and they didn’t come in until the week before the wedding! I had to constantly call the owner so that she would follow up with the dress manufacturer and make sure the dresses were shipped to us. She would never return my phone calls or follow up with me when she said she would. She didn’t seem to care that the dresses were not in yet even though 2 girls were out of town and everyone still had to get alterations! She treated me like I was overreacting when all I wanted was to be considerate to my bridesmaids. When I asked her to ship the dresses overnight she argued with me because she said she was losing money. Finally, she agreed to ship them overnight and it was a good thing because 1 of the dresses was the wrong size and had to be replaced!
