My time with Tamzen couldn’t have been better! She made me feel important and cherished and gave me the exact experience I knew I wanted when searching for my dress! I was happy to find my dress with my first appointment! If you want a personal experience I highly recommend trying her salon first!

I live just across the river from NYC, so finding a bridal gown shop would not be difficult. However, I am originally from PA and wanted to support a locally-owned shop. I literally fell in love with Tamzen’s Bridal! The story of the store owners is simply remarkable and inspirational. Furthermore, I had the most delightful experience when planning my visit and dress shopping. They are charming, friendly, and personable. And they provide the most amazing, popular, stylish gowns at very reasonable prices. I have already recommended this store to friends shopping for gowns in NYC and Philadelphia Absolutely wonderful!

I LOVE TAMZEN’S BRIDAL! I went in one afternoon looking for bridesmaid dress colors. I fell in love with the atmosphere and the sweet couple that owns it. Tamzen and Doc were so very helpful, sweet, and honest. Before leaving, I set up an appointment for my first wedding dress appointment! Tammy was so excited that she wanted to start right then to help me find my perfect dress. Of course she understood that I needed my mom, sister, and grandmother there so we just talked about what kinds of dresses I would like. A few days later when I went back for dress shopping- this time with my family. My family had heard me talk about this shop and how great it was that they were just as excited as I was to go back. We were greeted at the door with an adorable, personalized sign. We got started right away, and we were able to look through each of the dresses ourselves. After pulling probably 12 dresses, we started to try on. Tammy helps you find your perfect dress by looking at your body type, skin tone, engagement ring, and your opinion. She helps you visualize the dress by adding accessories. Doc even dims the lights to show you your dress sparkle in the spotlight. They let me take pictures in the dress I loved so that I could think about my decision. (My sister regretted buying hers so quickly so I felt I need to wait.) Well, here I am excited to go back to order the dress! I can’t wait! All of the dresses in this bridal shop are BEAUTIFUL! I feel like mine is guaranteed to wow my groom and guests! I can’t wait to show off how unique and well designed my dress is. And, I get a teacher discount! I haven’t stopped talking about this bridal shop, and I would recommend to everyone to start your experience here!

I ended my search for a dress with Tamzen’s Bridal and wish that I would have begun it with them as well! Tammy and Doc were dreams to work with. I had communicated with them via email a few times while I was shopping around for a dress and had visited a few other vendors, but I made my final decision with them. I could not have been more thrilled with the quality of service and sheer amount of kindness I experienced dress shopping at Tamzen’s Bridal.

Tammy was so incredibly accommodating and her objective opinions were so appreciated. She listened very intently as I explained what I was looking for, pulled some dresses that fit my ideas, some that were a bit more out of what I was looking for (which I was grateful to try on), and just made me feel so comfortable in general.

For anyone looking for a great experience wedding dress shopping, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Tamzen’s Bridal! Tammy and Doc are the best!

I went to Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor and WOW, talk about two genuinely wonderful people who care about their customers. I had tried to shop in the area before and was SO discouraged with the other stores that I wouldn’t even put on a dress. I popped my head in to just see what Tamzen’s had to offer and it just so happened that she had a customer change their appointment last minute! She welcomed my Mom and I with such warmth and kindness, and I felt so comfortable her. Her Fiancee Doc is a gentle and sweet man, too! (It was nice to have a Man’s opinion as well – and Doc was so endearing that it felt like I had my own father there). They have an amazing selection of gowns – and were so patient as I tried on (and re-tried on) all different styles. They put on different ribbons and hair pieces and even dimmed the lights so that I could see the ‘sparkle’ in one of my favorite dresses! They really made me feel like it was ‘my special day’. My Mom and I left the shop with such happiness that we couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day. Tamzen and Doc are two truly wonderful people – they are a great team and they run a great store! I am so thankful that Tamzen fulfilled her lifelong dream of owning a bridal shop – because I don’t think anyone can top what she and Doc offer! We narrowed down a few dresses and I can’t wait to bring family and friends in to help me with the final pick!

I had the most unbelievable experience at Tamzen’s Bridal today!! The owners are the nicest and sweetest down to earth couple. It’s awesome to see a couple go into the wedding business together because they are able to compliment and help both sides of your wedding party!They are the reason I had such a great experience, they were extremely personable and made me feel like a princess. They also met all of my accommodations and went far above and beyond any other bridal shop. Thank you for everything you have done for me and making me feel so incredibly special on my journey for “the dress.” I hope you continue to be blessed with the growth of your business because both of you deserve it!!

I would give them 10 stars!! Tamzen is a creative, sincere and just a wonderful person. I would “highly” recommend them for all your bridal needs. Not only for bride’s dresses, but bridesmaids, flower girl, suits and tuxedos, but also all the accessories. They also have great gift ideas. Carlisle is blessed to have them as part of the community. Thank you Tamzen for all you have done for my daughter, Megan, to make her one very happy bride.
