Our Story

Carly’s Bridal & Accessories was started by Carly Dertien. Carly has been designing and custom making Bridal Gowns and Accessories for the past 25 years,and decided that she could bring in very reasonable, affordable, and beautiful wedding gowns instead of making them.

She has continued to further refine her education with hands on training on bridal fashions since she first opened Carlys Bridal & Accessories in 2000. Carly has anticipated the need for affordable one of a kind bridal gowns which are new, or “once loved” as well as all the accessories to go with them.

Within our store you can find a great selection of Bridal Items or you can order new gowns from our designer catalogues, or from salon samples.
