“Brides, stay away from this store!”

Written on: 06/07/2015 by Dissapointed77 (1 review written)

Dear Brides, do yourself a favour and don't even enter this store!!! I bough a dress from Oriental Pearl at the Excel London fair in April, a beatiful dress with beadings on corset. I explained to the consultant that my budget is £1000 and she was happy to report that the dress I picked was just under! The tailor took my measures and explained that even though most of the bridal stores make the dresses in standard sizes, this one will be actually customized to my measurements! I was so… Read Full Review

Hi, I have just been reading your review and I am currently going through the same thing with this store. I also found a dress at a bridal fair and they measured me and ordered the dress there and then. When the dress arrived it looked completely different, the quality was shocking and they had completely changed the style of the dress during the alteration process. 3 weeks before my wedding I am still left with no dress and no refund. I am just wondering what process you have been following and if you have yet received a refund.
Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks

“Wedding dress”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by IbrahimMartin440 (1 review written)

I purchased my dress from the Wedding Fair at Glow, Bluewater at the Oriental Pearl pop up shop. 3 months later the dress arrived in and I had my first fitting on Saturday. To say I am THRILLED would be an understatement. I was treated so well and the dress is STUNNING. Very original and gorgeous design. Further alterations came at a cost but I was expecting this. I am very excited to see the dress again in a few weeks. I have been showing pic to my colleagues and friends who think it… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by foMcDowell269 (1 review written)

Friend of ,mine recommended the shop as she bought 3 dresses from there, her own wedding dress, 3 bridesmaid ones and also evening dress. I went Oriental Pearl back in January as I am looking for my dream wedding dress. The moment I walked into the shop I felt very welcomed as the staff were smiling and welcoming. The lady that took care of me was very professional, she showed me different dresses and made good suggestions and at the end I have made my decision on my dreamed dress- it was… Read Full Review

“Faultless Service from start to finish!”

Written on: 17/02/2015 by emmamc73 (1 review written)

I have just collected my bridesmaid dresses from the shop today and feel compelled to give these ladies the excellent review that they truly deserve. Their service has been professional, attentive and first class from the minute I ordered the dresses months ago. I had ordered two dresses is my colour scheme which I had only visualised in my head so I was nervous while waiting for them to bring the finished products out to us today. When I saw the dresses in reality, they were so stunning, it… Read Full Review

“Ripped dress - contact Trading Standards”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by Soniay90 (1 review written)

An expensive (overpriced imo) dress was purchased from the store (not ordered in), and the lace was found to be completely ripped and ruined when brought home. When returned, we were told no refunds and forced to take an unwanted Credit Note. They do not know, or refuse to acknowledge, their legal obligations under the Sale of Goods Act, and refuse to comminicate. If you find yourself in the same position, I'd recommend contacting the Citizens Advice Bureau, who pass the details on to Trading… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE! Late, poor quality and awful service. ”

Written on: 21/01/2015

Dress arrived too late for the event despite being assured it would be there in plenty of time and it was of really poor quality (stitching ect). Despite being measured in the store for sizing, when it eventually did arrive late it was also far too small. Definitely would not recommend this shop to anyone… Read Full Review

“Recommend their outlet in Northfleet ”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by Burgess196 (1 review written)

Couldn't find Orinental Pearl Outlet to write a review. Went to Outlet in Northfleet and had a wonderful experience. My bridal consultant was just what I needed in advising me in my wedding gown. She was the most helpful by far, more than any other shops who I had visited. I listened to her advise because she made it such an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend visiting the outlet because you receive a one to one service. Definitely ask for her. She made my day. First class service… Read Full Review

“highly reccomnded ”

Written on: 07/09/2014 by CarolynHampton (1 review written)

I visited the store just to have a quick look at bridal and bridesmaids dresses. I had tried dresses on in various bridal shops and had felt pressured with purchasing dresses I actually was not 100% about. Hassle free I was able to try dresses on and had great feedback and one to one service, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. the dress i tried on ended up becoming the dress for my big day. I will be visiting the store with all 10 of my maids as the dresses jewellery are just… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 17/08/2014 by McLeanvm229 (1 review written)

We needed two bridesmaids dresses in quite a hurry, but the lady in the shop assured us that 4 weeks was plenty of time because if we paid for express delivery they would be here in two weeks. We ordered two dresses on the 16th July and paid for the dresses and express delivery . Two weeks came and we didn't here anything so I went back into the shop on the 30th July to be told they wasn't in and was probably stuck in customs and that she would chase it up. I explained that i needed the dresses… Read Full Review

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SHOP!!!! Service was great until I placed my order and they had half my money, I ordered 2 bridesmaid dresses, and for some strange reason 5 turned up and not 1 of them fitted correctly, 3 of the dresses were of very poor quality, most of the staff are friendly and helpful, but one left one if my bridesmaids on the podium in her dress in tears IN FULL VIEW OF THE ENTIRE SHOP, she had told her in not so many words that she was FAT and needed to wear something to pull her in… Read Full Review

The service of the staff was absolutely fantastic. We went into Oriental Pearl to get a wedding dress and 3 bridesmaid dresses. When we went for our second fittings they done everything that they can in order to make the the dresses perfect for the day!

One worker was a confident communicator,she had high standards of presentation and especially helped out. I have my prom coming up,and because of this reliable and kind woman she helped me find my dress. IT'S AMAZING!!!! It's blue with sparkles :) I loved the fact that she was picking me out dresses with different styles and colours, spending at least 2 hours on me. She always treated me with enthusiasm and manners. Honestly, because of this lady I have officially found my dress(so… Read Full Review

“Great experience ”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by Scottan322 (1 review written)

I visited Oriental Pearl to look for a prom dress, as I entered, there was a range of dresses for me to try on. I was overwhelmed with the beauty and cleanliness of the store. While browsing I was kindly greeted by a member of staff and was treated like a princess. As I tried on the dress I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed. The member of staff kindly assisted me, by doing up my dress and gave me plenty of compliments on how I looked. I trusted every word that she spoke and believed that… Read Full Review
