“Let us down, took no responsibility.”

Written on: 11/02/2013

I made enquiries about a particular dress to buy, then asked if it was in stock for me to look at on the following Sunday. I was told that the shop had the model, size and colour I wanted, so I made an appointment. I live a long way from Colchester (in London), and I asked my mother, who had to come from France, and my sister, from Wiltshire, to come along. When we got there, the staff knew the time of the appointment but not the item I'd been asked to see. After a lot of searching they found… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service”

Written on: 04/02/2013 by FELICITY81 (1 review written)

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff, and in particular [name removed] for making my wedding dress shopping experience a wonderful one. When I was there for my first consultation [name removed] listened to my ideas of what my dream dress would be like and suggested I try a couple of different ones on that had just arrived in store that very day. I was so pleased she advised me, as one of those dresses was 'the one'. I didn't feel that I was being pressured into deciding on a… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2013

I cannot praise the staff and in particular Lesley for the time and patience she gave me when I recently twice visited The Wedding Shop to choose an outfit for my daughters wedding. Time was given freely (a lot of time!) and there was never a feeling of being hurried or pushed into making a decision. All the girls working there were so friendly as they passed by whilst dealing with other customers. The Wedding Shop is a lovely space to shop in and I would highly recommend it to anybody. I am… Read Full Review

Lovely environment, was made to feel comfortable straight away, lots if choice to try on and a range of sizes so I didn't have to squeeze into anything too small! Helpful from start to finish, I bought the first dress I tried on which was fabulous! And with traveling overseas with my dress the shop have been super helpful. By far the best bridal wear shop in the area!… Read Full Review

I had an appointment with on Saturday 13th October and was looked after by Harriet. She was lovely and made the whole experience so enjoyable.

“The Wedding Shop Colchester - Fantastic”

Written on: 10/07/2012 by JoanneThomas (1 review written)

The Wedding Shop was the first and last bridal shop I visited, the day in one word was AMAZING, I can't even describe how special the staff made me feel. Being a first time bride I had no idea what to expect and was extremely nervous. The wonderful Alice greated me, I instantly felt so comfortable and at ease :) The bridal gowns stocked within the store are breath taking - I wanted every single one. A wonderful choice of all styles for every bride. Alice helped me get into the gorgeous… Read Full Review

“Personal Service - Fantastic”

Written on: 17/06/2012 by C.Rowe (1 review written)

I didn't even need to got to any other shops! My first outing to try and find the perfect dress started and ended at The Wedding Shop! The whole experience was wonderful and being a slightly curvier bride I knew I might struggle with some styles but I was guided towards the right sized samples so the experience was a very positive one! After trying about 15 dresses on Nicola appeared with one that had just arrived in my size! It wouldn't have been one I would have probably picked but… Read Full Review

“Service and Choice”

Written on: 11/04/2012 by Maturemum (1 review written)

Having spent endless hours trawling through London's West End department stores looking in vain for a mother of the bride outfit 'The Wedding Shop' was a relief to anxious weeks of being the older mother. Choice for older mothers seeking an elegant outfit is fantastic with colours and styles available and expert assistance on tap from Sophie and Allison which made the task an enjoyable experience. The range of accessories covering bags and shoes etc together with an excellent dye service to… Read Full Review

“Absolutely wonderful!”

Written on: 23/01/2012 by hellenshean (1 review written)

I had the most wonderful experience at the wedding shop. Nicola was fabulous! She found me the most perfect dress and made the whole experience so special. Everyone was so friendly and really enthusiastic, it felt like having my real bridesmaids there! I never understood why women talk about their wedding dresses the way they do until I visited the wedding shop. I felt like a real life princess and I'm so thankful to Nicola for creating a very special moment that my mum and I will be able to… Read Full Review

I cannot praise the staff at The Wedding Shop highly enough, especially Amanda who has made my experience of being a bride to be so wonderful, I request her everytime as she really makes me feel understood, she is just so kind and helpful and funny! Nicola the owner is so welcoming and lovely, she couldnt have been more accomodating to me and my family and friends.

“Perfect Dress”

Written on: 04/01/2012 by shanicejbrown (1 review written)

I visited the new location on Tuesday to browse the dresses. I was taken upstairs and shown the dresses, however, the first dress I laid eyes on, I knew I had to have. I ended up purchasing the dress, and cannot wait to wear it in December. The new shop is so spacious, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit!… Read Full Review

“Excellent, would recommend!”

Written on: 04/01/2012

From the moment I walked into the new Wedding Shop on Colchester High Street the staff were very friendly, happy and professional. Then new shop is lovely and very spacious with a whole floor for wedding dresses! I had previously taken my scrapbook in with me with pictures of the styles of wedding dress I liked. I showed Christine and she picked out some dresses for me to try on. The service was excellent and atlhough I hadn't made an appointment she really took her time and nothing was too… Read Full Review

“My Wedding Dream”

Written on: 15/12/2011 by lynneanthony (1 review written)

What more can i say apart from freindly, helpful and passionate about what they do. Not only were we able to find a fantastic dress at a very reasonable price, but was also able to accessorise with a beautiful necklace set. I fell in love with the dress, but lacked confidence due to it being strapless. This however, did not prove to be a problem to super Allison, who offered exeptional advice on how to solve this problem by providing material to convert dress to a halter neck. The 1st class… Read Full Review

“My Special Dress!”

Written on: 10/10/2011

I found the Wedding Shop (Colchester) web site while looking for a 'special' outfit for my friend's wedding and I was very impressed by the dresses that I saw - the wide choice of designers, the colours and the fabrics were all excellent. Having discussed my choice on the phone with Alison - who could not have been kinder or more helpful - I ordered my outfit at 2.30 pm and was pleasantly surprised to receive it by 8 am the following morning - you can't get better service than that!

Written on: 06/10/2011 by JosieStevens1 (1 review written)

These guys at The Wedding Shop are fantastic, and delivery everything that is promised. This was the only shop i looked in for my wedding dress and found it in the third one i tried on. The lady that was helping totally understood the look and style i was going for and so only pulled out a selection that was relevant. I can't recommend the The Wedding Shop highly enough, my Mum also bought her MoB outfit after we attended one of their fashion shows… Read Full Review

“Kind, Friendly Service”

Written on: 17/08/2011 by Kizzy (1 review written)

I live in Belgium but decided to get married in the UK in July. I visited the wedding shop last Christmas and tried on a great selection of different bridal gowns and found the perfect one very quickly. I did my research beforehand as I did not have the time to wander around numerous bridal stores The Wedding Shop had the best and classiest selection! All the ladies in the shop are extremely kind and personable which made the whole experience a real pleasure. These ladies know their… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/08/2011

Newly engaged with no wedding date booked , my mum and i went shopping to get an idea of what style i would suit. When i first visited The wedding shop we were assisted by Hannah. She was very friendly and helpful and very patient. I tried on several dresses but ended up going for the first dress i tried. The dress i had picked had a high neck but i wanted it to be strapless. This seemed like no problem at all. So i paid a deposit and they said they would hold the dress until i had planned… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2011

Decided to get married with just four months notice and most wedding dresses have to be purchased at least six months in advance. However, the staff at the Wedding Shop picked out all the new samples that I liked and could purchase there and then (obviously still with alterations if needed) and also those dresses that could be ordered in time. Never felt pressurized once to buy a dress or any accessories.

The assistant who helped me picked out a dress that I would never have picked for… Read Full Review

Hired mens suits for my sons wedding, service second to none. Thankyou so much, they all looked so smart. They took time out to make sure they fitted us in over the busy christmas period, and a later date for the Best Man who could not make the same time as the rest. If you need to hire suits, this is the place to go… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2011

I can not fault the service that I received from The Wedding Shop, no matter who I spoke to or saw for fittings, I was always put at ease and everybody was so friendly and so excited for me!! I had some lovely custom made lace straps made for me by The Wedding Shop and it really topped off the dress - there was so much good advice all the way through and I would thoroughly recommend The Wedding Shop to any bride to be!! You really felt at total ease with The Wedding Shop and all of their staff… Read Full Review
