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!

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

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

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

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

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

I would recommend The Wedding Shop, Colchester to anybody. From start to finish, my experience there was fantastic. The staff were all very helpful, polite, knowledgeable and patient. I visited with my mum and two bridesmaids - we were made to feel very welcome and at home. The dress selection is great and very well kept. The shop is light and clean, with large changing rooms for privacy.
When choosing dresses to try on, I was free to browse and select anything I liked. The staff made helpful… Read Full Review

I had a brilliant experience at The Wedding Shop, Colchester and would urge any bride to go there.
My sister-in-law recommended it to me after having a similarly good experience 2 years before.
It was the one and only shop I went to, to choose my dress. I had no idea what I wanted, but the assistant was very friendly and knowledgeable and after picking just 6, I found my perfect dress.
All my subsequent fittings were a real joy - ALL the staff are very friendly and professional and offer good… Read Full Review

The staff at the Wedding Shop are Excellent!
All the staff were so lovely and my consultant Bryony was just so patient and so customer focussed. I took my bridesmaids and my mum and we all felt really included in the dress process it was so nice to have someone we could all chat to and laugh with. It was the first and only wedding dress shop I went to, and after trying on about 7 dresses I went back to the first one. I'd say go there and just browse the dresses when you get your first… Read Full Review

There is a great choice of dresses for any body shape, budget and taste. My body shape is not in proportion (top half is a size/size 1/2 bigger than my bottom half). I therefore was concerned about getting a dress that fitted well. The staff understood my concerns and we found and fitted the perfect dress. The dress suited my body shape and taste perfectly. The Wedding Shop team were extremely knowledgable, gave a lot of time and paid particular attention to my thoughts and feelings. I don't… Read Full Review

The Wedding Shop, Colchester and its sister store "Jitters" (located just next door) are truly fantastic. The staff cannot do enough to help you and they make you feel as if you're the first bride they have ever dressed - their enthusiasm is second to none. Their attention to detail is absolutely superb and both myself and my four bridesmaids felt entirely at ease each and every time we visited. Every single staff member we came into contact with was warm, helpful and extremely knowledgeable -… Read Full Review

This is the first place I went to to try on dresses as I had 5 dresses they stocked that I liked from the pictures. When I got there, none of these were in stock but nonetheless, I tried on others. The staff member I saw was lovely, she did everything she could to help. Can't recommend the staff any more than that, they were all lovely and no pressure to buy… Read Full Review

I am a journalist on a weddings magazine and I bought my wedding dress at The Wedding Shop on recommendation from my sister. I cannot praise the shop and staff enough - its a lovely, light, airy shop in the centre of Colchester and the girls who work there are just so lovely. They couldn't do enough to help and gave me all the time in the world to look through the gowns and make my decision. It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with them and I wholeheartedly recommend them to any bride. And… Read Full Review

I cannot praise this wonderful shop enough for helping me with my beautiful dress. I originally ordered it through Eva Lazio in Surrey in June 09 and to cut a long story short, after chasing the shop owner since then she said she has cancelled the order 3 months before my wedding! In complete distress and bawling like a baby, I found The Wedding Shop online and called them begging for their help, they were so sympathetic and lovely and they were the only shop that could get my dress for me in 3… Read Full Review

Absolutely fantastic shop! So friendly and helpful. I found the perfect dress only thanks to the hard work of the poeple there, they spent time trying new ideas and came up with combinations I could never have thought of on my own.
Nicola who helped me on my first visit, even came in especially to see me when she was ill so she could get all the items together for me! Really wonderful.
I couldn't recommend this place more and I went to a few!
Outstanding service… Read Full Review

I cannot thank The Wedding Shop in Colchester enough for helping me to look and feel amazing in my dress on my wedding day!
The staff are very friendly and helpful. They put a lot of time in to finding your perfect dress. They did try to sell me accessories that I wasn't too sure about (which I expected them to do), but once I had expressed my opinion this was respected and they did everything to please. The women who deal with the fittings are particularly fantastic. So much effort goes in… Read Full Review

I've recently picked up my dress from The Wedding Shop in Colchester and just wanted to wite a review as I wanted to praise good service! The team have been so friendly and helpful, willing to share their advice on styles and options. Each time I had a query, staff were always so friendly and helpful, and were so efficient.
Don't be afraid to ask for their suggestions on styles that might suit you - they have experience of dressing women of all shapes and sizes and might recommend a dress… Read Full Review

We first met the staff from the wedding shop at the National wedding show in London. They were lovely. My daughter tried on a dress, it was the first dress she had ever tried on. It looked amazing. She tried on several others but that dress just called out to her. We had to buy it. The staff from the wedding shop offered to look after it but my daughter wouldn't part with it. We carried it on the underground and by train all the way home. We were advised to go to the shop in Colchester a few… Read Full Review
