"I can't recommend Lastrina Girls enough! It is very clear that each of their staff loves what they do and is invested in making each bride feel as beautiful as possible. I came in to the store with only a very few ideas of what I wanted in a wedding dress. My consultant looked at the single picture I brought and found my dress in an instant. My dress was the second one I put on and she hit the nail on the head when I didn't even know what I wanted. I ordered extra beading to be added to my dress and they worked with me to ensure I would have enough at a reasonable price. I would send everyone I encounter to them without hesitation."


"Lastrina Girls was fantastic! I told them my vision and I ended up purchasing the first dress I tried! I loved it! Their space was beautiful and clean, the stylist who helped me was so kind and she pulled the most beautiful veil for me, I ended up purchasing that as well!"


"With the help of Samantha I was able to find my beautiful wedding gown and I couldn’t be happier. I was very nervous to try on dresses as a plus size bride but Lastrina Girls has a big selections of gowns that fit and made me feel good about my appearance. The interior of the salon is gorgeous and their wedding dress selection is amazing. I am so happy I chose to go here and get my dress."


"Since my family is all over the states, I had to start my wedding dress shopping on my own and I am not girly at all so I was super nervous going into it. Melanie helped me out today and I honestly couldn’t have had a better experience! She was super calm, listened to what I liked and didn’t like and was not pushy at all. It was kind of a “go with the flow” wedding dress experience. As I pointed out things I liked and things I didn’t, she quickly narrowed my search down until I tried on a dress on that truly brought me to tears. Could not have asked for a better start to my wedding dress shopping. Thank you so much Melanie!"


"This will have been my third time at lastrinas (once for myself and second time for friends) and every time we have left with a dress! The staff is so helpful and promotes such a positive experience no matter what dress size you are! I booked the signature package and it was worth every penny! The bride felt so special and relaxed during her shopping experience with her private room and extra time to try on dresses!"


"Lastrina Girls made my dress experience so easy and fun. Samantha was my stylist and she was absolutely incredible to work with. I absolutely hate clothes shopping, but I loved shopping with her! She found my perfect dress in less than five dresses. She knew exactly how to advocate for the dress I wanted and was so easy to talk with. I absolutely recommend booking on a week day because it's much quieter and less stressful. I absolutely recommend going here. Thank you, Samantha, for being so patient and incredible!"


"I had a hard time making a decision on my dress but Abbey, the bridal consultant, was so kind and patient with me at each appointment. In the end, I am so so happy with my decision and glad to have been able to support a Middletown business! Thank you Abbey, Krista, and Lastrina Girls!"


"Literally can not say enough great things about this place. Very cozy and welcoming. They take their time to really listen to what you want and know exactly what they are doing. I went in with a list of dresses I saw on their website, which I thought I loved, but I ended up falling in love with and purchasing a dress that was not on my list. Will definitely recommend this place to any bride I know getting married!!
Thanks again!"


"I had a wonderful experience at Lastrina Girls! It was my first time dress shopping and Katie made me feel so comfortable, was very respectful of my budget, and expertly navigated my family dynamics while making me feel in control. They're an LGBTQ friendly store - I went in nervous about the "so what's *his* name?" question (cue complicated family dynamics!) but nothing of the sort happened, and Katie excitedly asked about the proposal and love story as she would with any other bride. Overall, definitely recommend."


"Shopping at Lastrina Girls Bridal Salon was a wonderful experience. As a plus size bride I was so concerned about dress shopping however all of those concerns melted away working with Holly & the team. I absolutely recommend checking them out for you wedding dress, mother's dress & bridesmaids need!"


"Lastrina Girls Bridal Salon is the only bridal salon you need to go to!
They were nothing but accommodating - I'm not a plus size and they make sure than any size woman feels beautiful and finds her perfect dress! They had tons of dresses in stock that fit me to try on. My dress was actually the second one that I tried on and I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect!"


“Everyone in the shop is 100% dedicated to making you feel beautiful and comfortable in your dress. They go above and beyond and are extremely kind. Buy your dress here if you want a personal and stress free experience.”

“Experience was a dream come true! After one visit to an off-the-rack store and one full-blown bridal appointment, I was getting overwhelmed. Thankfully, Holly was ready to come to my rescue. Her only request was that I keep talking, even when it was entirely unhelpful like “I don’t know, there’s just something weird about it.” She managed to find something that has every element and tiny detail I liked from the thousands of dresses I’ve looked at and 30+ dresses I’ve tried on, so my dress is this composite of all of my favorite things from all those dresses. I truly had that moment when I felt like a bride and a princess, and the whole store made me feel special and beautiful. Another thing I loved about this store was that all the sample dresses actually fit me. There’s nothing worse than wanting to try on a dress but not even being able to get it on since the sample is a bridal size 6. The girls made me comfortable and actually promoted healthy body images by having a variety of sizes. I’ve been losing weight to get healthy, so alterations were a concern, but since they can alter down two full sizes, I feel better. The woman who measured me even told me that I don’t even have two sizes to lose, which felt incredible to hear and helps me feel validated for all my hard work. I can’t wait to shop here with Holly for a veil and other accessories.”

“This was such a wonderful experience. They only book one appointment per hour so it was quiet and easy. Alyssa was an excellent attendant and found me the perfect dress. They also had several dresses on sale, so it's easy to find something at your price point. The store was beautiful and immaculate. Can't wait to go back for my fitting- would definitely recommend!”

“I am so happy that I made the choice to get my dress (and all of our bridesmaid/family dresses) at Lastrina Girls Bridal Salon! They were absolutely phenomenal throughout the entire wedding planning process, and helped to make it so exciting and stress-free. They have an incredible selection, and a supportive and helpful yet no-pressure vibe. I found my dream dress at Lastrina, and from shopping with my bridesmaids, to picking out accessories, to all of my fittings, each visit was so special, and all of the associates at Lastrina are so kind, knowledgeable, helpful, and so excited for you. Everyone at Lastrina was such a delight to work with, and I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a wedding gown!!! You will have a truly amazing experience with Lastrina!”
