While we’re still mourning the loss of The Bridal Salon at Saks Jandel, we don’t have to mourn three of the big-name designers that the boutique carried in our region. Carine’s Bridal Atelier, the Georgetown boutique that’s been dressing Washingtonian brides in designer gowns for a decade, has picked up Naeem Khan, Vera Wang, and Oscar de la Renta and is now selling their bridal lines.

The addition of new designers to Carine’s Bridal Atelier’s offering is in part possible due to the boutique’s recent expansion into a new, 6,400-square foot rowhouse space on Wisconsin Avenue, which is almost three times larger than the boutique’s former home in Georgetown. The upstairs offers rooms for racks of the fashionable gowns in addition to fitting rooms that have space for both the bride and her entourage. Additionally, the basement of the boutique provides room for selling sample dresses and evening gowns.

The boutique—along with its three new lines—is currently open at 1623 Wisconsin Ave., NW. Call 202-965-4696 to schedule an appointment, and take a peek inside the salon’s new digs in the photos below.
