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

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

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

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

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

Having visited every bridal shop in Colchester (and Ipswich), I'd have to say that The Wedding Shop was easily the best. I got on really well with the ladies there and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thoroughly recommended!… Read Full Review

Shopping at The Wedding Shop in Colchester was fabulous, I was made to feel like a real princess and the experience is up there with my best moments alongside getting engaged!
I had looked through lots of glossy magazines before hand and had a rough idea of what I wanted, and one of the ladies chatted about this with me before I tried anything on. I was then encouraged to try on a wide range of styles and shapes, and given great support and advice about what suited me. They were so patient with… Read Full Review

Although I have not got my dress from here I would recommend them, they are so friendly, and they do have a good selection of dresses too. Really nice place, they make you feel relaxed, very refreshing… Read Full Review

What a lovely experience at The Wedding Shop, Colchester! They altered my dress slightly, as I was panicking I couldn't breathe properly in it!! They gave me advice on how to have my hair! Best of all, they didn't push me into going for a particular dress..I felt they put my needs first - rather than the commission they may get on a dress!
I will be recommending this shop to all my engaged friends!!
I'm quite sad I won't get to see the ladies anymore! Maybe I should see if they want a… Read Full Review

The whole experience at The Wedding Shop was excellent and made the journey from south London totally worthwhile. The shop is uncrowded and the dresses all in good condition (unlike many other places I have been to). Having your own private area to try on the dresses is a huge plus as is the great advice and help from all the staff. I would highly recommend to anyone… Read Full Review

Being an "older" bride it was refreshing to still be made to feel special by the staff at The Wedding Shop. The manager offered her opinion on what may suit - after numerous outfits chosen by myself I ended up with her first suggestion !
As a result I have wonderful dresses for both myself and my bridesmaid.
Thank you The Wedding Shop, Colchester!!!!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

I have just come back from an amazing experience at the Wedding Shop in Colchester. I found my perfect dress here and ordered it a few months ago. The staff could not be more helpful. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble! The shop does not normally open on Sundays but they decided to open specially today in order to help out us brides who work full time and live a fair distance away and therefore struggle to find the time to get there. The staff make you feel like a real princess and don't… Read Full Review

I found everything about my experience with The Wedding Shop absolutely wonderful. In terms of my dress, I wanted alterations that other dress shops said couldn't be done. Based on many years of experience, the Wedding Shop assured me it could be done. And they were right - the dress fitted my body perfectly and the alterations were spot on.
But I think its the service that is the best thing about the Wedding Shop. Every person in the shop was friendly, helpful and attentive. I was never… Read Full Review

I would still recommend a visit but I think it is a case of buyer beware. The dress was lovely it is just a niggle that maybe they thought they were getting rid of stock that otherwise they could not have… Read Full Review

We bought 2 gorgeous bridesmaid dresses in The Wedding Shop from their fantastic selection. Having looked in lots of other shops previously and being uninspired, I discovered The wedding shop website and the stunning range of WTOO dresses. The quality of these dresses is excellent, and as they are not widely stocked in the UK so a real find.
The service in this shop was great, and advice and support regarding styles and sizing a real help. I have recommended this shop unreservedly to my friends… Read Full Review

The service was absolutely brilliant. I had been recommended by a friend and although it was quite a drive from where we lived it was well worth it. On the first trip we thought we had decided on colours but when we returned with the bridesmaids for a fitting, the bride had changed her mind re the colour. The ladies there were so helpful, we had every colour combination in swatches until after about 2 hrs we finally made a decision. Nothing was too much trouble, anyone else would have been… Read Full Review

All the staff at the wedding shop in Colchester treat you as if yours is the only wedding they are dealing with. They are endlessly patient and helpful and give you all the time in the world. Finding and buying a beautiful Jenny Packham dress from them for my daughter's wedding was absolutely stress free which is such a bonus when it is probably the most important dress you ever buy. The choice of different designers is wide and good. I highly recommend them… Read Full Review

Friendly helpful staff who did not hurry or hassle, but seemed genuinely interested in helping me find the dress I wanted. I must have been in there for 2 hours trying on dresses, which was great at helping me narrow my search. The dressing rooms at The Wedding Shop in Colchester have excellent natural lighting too, allowing you to really see yourself… Read Full Review
