All the ladies go above and beyond! After being a very picky bride and going to multiple places, I decided to visit Tamzens. Within minutes the ladies there knew exactly what to do and found the perfect dress! The dresses and suits at Tamzens are stunning and the prices are great! Thank you!

Since I grew up in Carlisle I wanted to try to keep most my vendors local. I had heard about Tamzen’s from a fellow peer who had been married a couple years before myself. I decided to start my wedding dress search there and was not disappointed. Tammy was absolutely fabulous. First of all having the store to myself and my party, which meant so much and made us all very comfortable. We were able to find a winner within a couple hours. But this is not where Tammy stopped. She personally converted my mother’s veil to a comb, provided me with a perfect recommendation to a seamstress closer to my home, and helped me set up preservation of my dress in advance. I am so happy my hometown has such a gem in Tamzen’s.

Tamzen’s Bridal was my first stop in looking for wedding dresses. I was nervous and had a vague idea, at best, of what I was looking forward. Brittany was professional, warm, and very knowledgeable. In the end, we found a dress that was very much me, exceeded expectations, and was in my (tighter) price range. I would highly recommend Tamzen’s Bridal. At Tamzen’s you’ll feel more like you’re on an outing with girlfriends, then under pressure to find the perfect dress.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Brit, Tamzen, and the shop’s collection of dresses. I was very wary of wedding dress shopping in the beginning as I thought it could be frustrating or overwhelming BUT my whole experience was different at Tamzens. When I first went shopping I didn’t find “the one” but they encouraged me to check out the Herve collection when it arrived in stock at their store (they are the only store in the US with this collection). Tamzen kept in touch with me and was timely in setting up an appointment when they arrived (she texted me the day they arrived and sent me photos of the dresses I was anticipating the most). I ended up choosing a dress that I am so in love with and cannot wait to wear for my September wedding. These ladies truly made me feel so special and are incredible at listening to what you *think* you want and infusing their expertise. I will forever sing their praises!!!

Tamzen is the best there is! The moment I met her I could tell she was someone who knew bridal gowns and the bridal industry very well. She knew exactly which gowns would look amazing on me, and she was the one who ended up picking out “the dress” after realizing the ones I was picking just weren’t right for my body type. She made me feel very comfortable with her warm and genuine personality. She basically treated me as if I was HER daughter getting married! I can be very indecisive (and it didn’t help that she has sooooo many beautiful dresses to choose from), so when I finally had it narrowed down to three dresses, she guided me to the right one by giving me things to think about that other places didn’t, like what alterations would be needed and how that would affect the overall look and cost of the dress. Again, she really knows her stuff, and that is exactly the type of consultant you need when making such an important purchase. She gives you her complete and undivided attention, and she will not pressure you into anything just so she can “make a sale”. She truly cares about her clients and making sure they walk out of her shop feeling valued and beautiful. The dress I ordered came very quickly – about 2 months – and it was exactly as I ordered. I thought finding and ordering a dress would be one the most stressful things about my wedding, but it turned out to be the easiest because of Tamzen’s outstanding professionalism. I cannot say enough nice things about her and her staff, and I highly recommend anyone getting married to see Tamzen and only Tamzen. You won’t need to go anywhere else – trust me.

Tamzen and Rob are such lovely people and their boutique is beautiful. Their selection is reflective of their impeccable taste. They helped me find the perfect dress for my bridesmaids. They made the experience fun and relaxed and had great recommendations. It is clear that they want their brides and bridesmaids alike to have a special experience.

Tamzen’s was the first and only bridal shop I stopped at on my hunt for the perfect gown. I went in with an idea of what I thought I wanted. Tamzen encouraged me to try on different styles so I could see what the silhouettes looked like on my figure and I fell in love with a dress that she pulled! I never expected to get that bridal moment, but I did the moment I tried on the dress. If you are looking for the perfect dress, than Tamzen’s is the perfect place to help you find it. I can’t sing higher prices for their shop!

After getting engaged, it started to become overwhelming thinking of all the things to do, especially when it comes to the dress. Tamzen’s Bridal is the best!! The owners are very kind and helpful by offering a personal touch for each bride. At the appointment, it was solely me and my family; no other brides waiting for their turn to be swapped around various consultants like you’ll find at other shops. I had an idea of what I wanted, but not completely. Tamzen was very patient and put me in all types of silhouettes until I found the perfect shape. All of the dresses are beautiful and very affordable, which was important for a frugal bride like me on a very tight budget! I found my gown, and it’s perfect! Tamzen went above and beyond, providing ideas for veil length, hairpieces, and jewelry to make the look extra special. Make this your first stop in your dress search. Thank you, Tamzen and Robert!!

In the past few weeks I recommended Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor to two friends. They both were impressed with the wonderful and personalized service from the owners (Tammy and Robert Sonntag). They also said that the prices were better than they could imagine, the selections were unbelievable, and their overall experience was phenomenal!! I will continue to recommend Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor for anyone in the need of a bridal gown, mother of the bride (or groom), bridesmaids dresses, tuxedos, or just the most beautiful and elegant formal wear.

We love this shop! My sister and I both got our dresses here. The owner Tammy did our appointment. It is the most personalized experience! We were the only appointment for the day! We did not feel rushed and she made sure we had plenty of time to make a decision. I will recommend everyone here. They even help to work with your budget. Thanks again for making both my sister and I feel very special for our big days ahead!
