I would highly recommend the bridal house in Leeds! Their dresses are top quality and the service is even better. I went to many different shops whilst looking for my dress and hands down without a doubt was the best by far. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and made me and my mum feel very welcome. The alteration service is brilliant. I would highly recommend them, defiantly worth a visit. (read more)

Merle and her team are fantastic. The service I got was first class. I am 49yrs old and was a bit worried that the shop would be full of young brides, that was not the case at all. They went out of their way for me and my bridesmaids. I was thrilled with my dress they let me take as much time as I wanted when I was choosing. I would urge anyone looking for a wedding dress to pay them a visit Jayne in Lincoln (read more)

Well what a waste of time! I walked into this place today, and was practically ushered back out the door. She asked when the wedding was, to which I replied 2014, at which point she lost complete interest, told me that all the dresses will change in that time etc, and that I need an appointment anyway. Firstly, fair enough of the appoinment front. This is my first time, and I'm not quite sure of how it all works, so I can understand that. However she then went of to say essentially, to...

Many thanks to the staff of the Bridal House Leeds. For all their help for making our Daughters Wedding day in July 2011 so special. The attention she received on her visits for the fitting of the dress and accessories, and the friendliness of the staff.

The process of purchasing my dress from this shop was an uncomfortable one. They appeared to be very money orientated rather than customer focused and put alot of pressure upon me to order my dress. But I found 'the one' in this shop. It arrived 9 weeks later.....very quick indeed, especially when I was given such a 'hard sell' that I was 'cutting it fine'...I was confused because my wedding was a while away.

Very friendly and welcoming at first, we chose 3 Bridesmaid dresses, which were not cheap! but looked lovely. The girls were measured up and dresses ordered. When they came only one fit right and the other two were a lot smaller and too tight for the bridesmaids. I think they didn't measure right at all, I had to pay for the pleasure of them putting it right. The owner is snooty and rude once she has your money and any problems occur. I spent a lot of money in this shop and they couldn't... (read more)

Bridal House was the first shop I tried in my hunt for the perfect wedding dress. The staff were lovely and extremely helpful.

I thought I had found the dress of my dreams. Throughout my fittings and weight loss the staff were helpful and walking out of the shop, I looked forward to my wedding. The last fitting I had they had put pins in the dress and I was told that it would be completed for a family member to collect as I was going to be away. On my wedding day the alterations had not been completed so I was left with a baggy dress and had to be stuck in with tape. My wedding dress moment was ruined and I have... (read more)
