“There is a great choice of dresses for any body shape,...”

Written on: 23/08/2010

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...”

Written on: 21/07/2010 by nataliefraser83 (1 review written)

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

Written on: 20/07/2010

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

Written on: 13/04/2010

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

Written on: 27/02/2010 by bamboomajorj (2 reviews written)

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

Written on: 29/11/2009

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

Written on: 12/08/2009

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

Written on: 29/07/2009

I was really excited to be going to the Wedding shop, it was such a let down. The salesperson who served me and my mum was all simpering and did not have a clue, then was to embaressed to come into my changing room to help me get the dresses on. It was a real struggle and to top it off they had no air con working. Also we saw one poor lady trying on the most hideous dress, she looked unsure but they were trying to sell it to her anyway....we left promtly!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2009 by jeffporter (2 reviews written)


I/We had hunted around looking for suits for our wedding. We'd tried the usual places, Moss Bro, Debenhams, youngs etc. To be honest I found the quality of the suits to be either poor or service to be pretty poor.

I did like the look of the Cameron Ross suits (no not the Highland Wear).

One of the best points of the renting the Cameron Ross suits is that since our wedding party were located Colchester, Warwick and Chester (+1 in New Zealand) was that we could get fitted in our local Cameron… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/07/2009

Very disappointed by cramped second floor room at The Wedding Shop where my daughter was expected to experience the joy of trying on her first wedding dress. This was despite having explained when making our appointment that my disabled mother would be with us and being told we would be on the first floor with a lovely large trying on area. Instead someone else was having a fitting in our promised room. We did offer to wait but were still ushered upstairs. They obviously did not like me… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/06/2009

Excellent product and service! I really do have everyone at The Wedding Shop, Colchester to thank for helping me choose my absolutely beautiful wedding dress.

1. The range of dresses - obviously I loved my dress, that is why I chose it! But the shop had so many I loved and could easily have worn on my wedding day. The thing that struck me most was the range they had, they stocked all the big names and designers. Most of what you'd see in the wedding magazines, Jenny Peckham, Essence, Benjamin… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2009

I had a fantastic experience with The Wedding Shop in Colchester. I had been to one other shop and The Wedding Shop outshone it completely. I felt really special, was allowed to try on what I wanted and a member of staff was really lovely - she gave great advice, it didn't feel at all salesy but was helpful and practical. My mum and dad came with me the first time and they both loved the whole experience and they came again for the first fitting along with both my sisters - and they didn't mind… Read Full Review

These people obviously care about their business and client and it shows!

The Wedding Shop in Colchester was the first wedding shop I went to and absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
Despite having, no doubt, hundreds of potential brides come through their doors they always remember you and go out of their way to make you feel the most special person they have seen that day.

Not having visited any other shop I cannot say wether this is normal service but I very much doubt it. This shop… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/10/2008 by katerbasti (1 review written)

I was looking for something very special, a red dress with sleeves. I never even once heard the words 'not possible', everyone tried to find a solution for all my ideas. In the end my dress was exactly what I had had in mind, the colour of the shoes and bag matched the dress and the shop even made a matching cravatte and hanky for my husband to be!
They sometimes open on Sundays just for dress fittings - very helpful when you work and live a bit further away. I went for the fittings with my two… Read Full Review

A great personal service from The Wedding Shop, they remembered my name every time (even if I turned up without an appointment). They were more than helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending them. I had a beautiful unique dress, and they made up my daughters dress from her own drawings. Thanks to everyone at The Wedding Shop… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2008 by samanthafricker (1 review written)

I had the most wonderful wedding day in August 2004 and the centrepiece of that day was definitely my wedding dress! The staff put me at ease the minute I walked through the door and showed me a selection of the loveliest dresses I had ever seen. My search had taken me up to London several times and I wished I had gone to the Wedding Shop first as it would have saved a vast amount of time and money.

My Mum also found her outfit at Jitters and the assistant matched the look with the most… Read Full Review
