Everything - great service, great selection of gorgeous dresses, plenty of time for you and good advice on what accessories might go well with the dress (even if they're not from the shop)
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 a jot there were so many of us. I can honestly say that all three of my visits to the Wedding Shop were a really special part of my wedding preparations and the staff member got teary eyed on my final fitting day. As another reviewer said, they see brides-to-be day in day out so it's amazing that they retain the enthusiasm for each bride but it does feel absolutely genuine - I think all the people working there love what they do and it shows. I would recommend every bride-to-be to visit The Wedding Shop (and the shop next door does great mother of the bride outfits).
