A few of our brides, having purchased their dresses at Karma Bridal, were very happy with the price, selection, and especially the customer service of this store. When we went in to do our photography and interview, we were warmly greeted and had a great chat with the owner, Erika, and the manager, Lakita.

We asked Lakita for her best piece of advice for brides-to-be, shopping for their dress. Her advice was to come into the store with an open mind and honest, positive people. Lakita says, when you try on your dress and you’re looking in the mirror, “even though you want honest people, the process is a lot harder when you’ve got people who are super critical”. Lakita also has training and experience with bridal hair styling, and is happy to offer consultations.
