My future daughter in law had booked into Emma Roy's for an hour appointment and from the moment we walked in were made very welcome and very important. The assistant asked us what we were looking for and we gave her our thoughts and straight away she went to work and brought 4 dresses for her to try on. One by one she tried them on and tried on 2 of the dresses again. Our assistant was very pleasant and helpful to us and we were not rushed in any way or told what we should be looking for at...

I had a very mixed experience at Emma Roy. On the positive side, the range of wedding dresses they have in stock is unsurpassed and I can't thank the sales team enough for their help, they really were excellent. The alterations service, on the other hand, is a completely different kettle of fish and I had a truly terrible service from them. When I arrived for the second fitting of my dress, I was horrified to find that there were several dirty marks on it! I asked for it to be cleaned and... (read more)

Down in the bridal salon the stylists are just lovely, caring and want to help you, nothing is too much bother. To all the negative reviews who think that the... (read more)

Walked into the shop where we were told appointment only, but we're directed to the first floor to see if any assistants were free. Luckily Nuala was free, She asked me what style I had in mind, I told her I was open minded. With that she grabbed several dresses and asked that I look through to see any liked. The first one I tried on I absolutely loved, but she asked that I try on a few more. Having seen what had suited me she mentioned there had been a delivery that morning so suggested I... (read more)

I would never recommend Emma Roy to any bride. I made an appt to which i was left for 30 mins (whilst staff were on lunch) thats fine i had a look through the dress while another 4 brides entered the shop with friends/family. Wedding dress shopping should be an exclusive experience, not full shop with busy staff and being left. i called twice to ask for a dress to order in in which i received NO calls back, on my 3rd call to ask about the dress i was over quoted by £2100 ( since another...

As the total says, I can not fault them. I had arranged an appointment for Emma Roy for today as well as one other bridal store (who for the time being shall remain nameless) and it was my first ever day going and trying on any wedding dresses. From the moment I walked through the door I was greatest with a smile and the staff were all warm and friendly, especially considering how horrible the weather was outside.

I would just like to say what a fabulous experience I had when I visited Emma Roy to choose my wedding dress in January 2011. Nuala was amazing. If it had not been for the knowledge of Nuala and her enthusiasm to delight I would never have considered the dress which is now the dress I will get married in.

I had my appointment at Emma Roy bridal in Edinburgh as I had requested a specific dress in a small size. After travelling from Glasgow, my first visit was great and the lady who attended to me, Kirsty, was very helpful.

Went shopping to Emma Roy yesterday to get my 2 bridesmaids dresses and we were assisted by Vanessa. Vanessa also helped me pick my wedding gown a few months ago.

I initially travelled through to Edinburgh as Emma Roy had the dress I liked in my size in stock. The plan was to try it on and if I liked it I would order the dress in Glasgow where I live and work.
Like all good plans mines changed. The staff in Emma Roy were warm friendly and most of all honest, there is also expert dress makers on hand to give advice on wether your dress can be altered. The shop is also spotless and feels and looks like a wedding shop should (down stairs is pale cream... (read more)

I visited every shop in Edinburgh and way beyond and ended up getting my dress in Emma Roy. I had heard some negative reviews but went with an open mind and was so so pleased with the service I received.

I had so much fun choosing my dress and the girl helping me was really genuine and friendly and really helped me visualize my big day.
