What We Do

Our Mission

At Carolyn Allen’s Bridals & Tuxedos, we provide the Central Florida area with affordable, high-quality wedding attire and exceptional service.

We provide first-rate services to out-of-town couples and their parties coming in for magical Fairy Tale Weddings.

When we can, we give back to our community through donations to organizations like Goodwill, Salvation Army, Brides Against Breast Cancer, the Hope and Help Center of Central Florida, and Operation Princess Project, among others.

Since 1993

Our Story

Carolyn Allen’s Bridals has been serving the Central Florida area since 1993, starting out in the Radisson Twin Towers (now the DoubleTree by Universal Orlando). Carolyn moved her growing business to the Williamsburg Downs Shopping Center.

When she was ready to retire in 2007, Carolyn handed the reins over to her long-time seamstress and sales associate, Sue, to continue her work and keep her good name and reputation. After another move to the prestigious City Lake Plaza in 2017 where the shop is currently located, Sue and family are still helping couples, adapting to ever-changing style trends and economic demands.

Staying small, the person who you communicate with via phone or email is the same person who will help you in the shop at your appointment, and follows through to help your vision from the beginning come alive at the end. 

Let us share our passion and expertise in formalwear with you and yours.


Bridesmaid Dress and Alterations

I came in to the store stressed as I had a bridesmaids dress for brothers wedding and found out I was pregnant with twins… thankfully the dress had many layers to work with but the alterations were the best. When I picked up my dress after it was done… my stress lowered because it fit so well and had room to grow a little… the family was kind, considerate and very easy to work with.

Wedding Dress Shopping

Sue and her family are the kindest, sweetest people you will ever meet, and are committed to making you feel like a princess for your special day. She even customized the sleeves of my dress to make it a unique reflection of me. It's clear that she takes great care and pride in her work.

The Full Package

The BEST bridal shop with the sweetest staff in the world! We have been working with Carollyn Allen for almost 3 years now thanks to COVID-19 consistently postponing our wedding... We are blessed to have found a company that is so patient and flexible with our constant wedding changes.

Wedding Dress Shopping

I love how I got to view photos of their available dresses in a binder, rather than sifting through racks of dresses... They even have their binders organized by price so you can make sure you stay within your budget. Sue and her family always welcomed me with open arms each visit, and made me feel comfortable... They’re knowledgeable about dresses and the wedding industry, and ensured my dress was altered exactly to my liking.

Gown Steaming and Delivery

Carolyn Allen’s Bridal & Tuxedos did a fantastic job when steaming my ball gown wedding dress and my husband’s tux! They arrived on time in our hotel room for the appointment and were very professional! I’m so happy I went with them when getting my wedding dress ready for my Disney Fairy Tale Wedding!!! ... I would definitely recommend them for future.
