Really want to say a big thank you to the staff at Orange Blossom, You all were wonderful in helping me find my wedding gown.

“Shop of horrors”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by deKirkpatrick318 (1 review written)

I hardly know where to start. The main focus of staff was to preserve the condition of the sample dresses and not provide a warm and friendly environment. We were handed gloves immmediately on our arrival and the customer service assistant showed little interest in finding out about our personal tastes or any of the wedding details. The stock was poor but that could be the result of visual merchandising. The accessories were the same and we were shocked to be handed clogs to try on with a… Read Full Review

“Disgusting”

Written on: 22/07/2013 by SarahHall (1 review written)

I again should have listened to other reviews. I booked to come up, driving 30 miles and struggling in the horrid area to park. I rang to ask about parking...ha. No answer. I finally got in to the dark showroom. From outside it looked tacky and the dresses on display were a joke. I was ignored for at least 15 mins until my mum got fed up and made a bit of a fuss. My appointment was not in their book. Somehow that was my fault. They could not see me. There was nobody else in the shop. Go… Read Full Review

“Shocking!”

Written on: 17/05/2013

I wish I had read the reviews before making the journey to this 'Bridal' store. I had seen a particular dress that I wanted to try on and was informed that this was the only shop in the South East stocking the sample gown. I made an appointment and a 60 mile trip to get there. The woman who served me was pleasant enough after much enticement from me by way of politeness, the other member of staff clearly would rather not have had customers! It was dark and dirty, the dressing area tired and… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the Plague.”

Written on: 27/10/2012

I cannot believe this place has the nerve to open their doors and trade in this unprofessional way. After being glared at by the crone behind the counter she eventually let my party in. If I book in advance and it is pouring rain, I do not expect to be left outside while the staff stare at me through the window. After finally getting in I cheerfully smiled and tried to give my name. She gave me a withering look, spoke over me and informed me that I was only allowed two guests. As I had only two… Read Full Review

“Heart breaking”

Written on: 27/07/2012

Terrible place. I went and selected my dress and they called me later to say they couldn't do the fitting as the dress maker's husband had died. I was so sorry for the poor woman but they told me that there was nothing to do about it. They offered me (and made it clear that this was the only time) a different day and time when I was not available as I am a teacher and it was my class's sports day. So Ultimately, I was not going to have my dress in time for the big day. The woman who called me… Read Full Review

“Depressing Wedding dress experience”

Written on: 02/03/2012

We were buzzed into the store, which is now called Orange Blossom.. possibly to get away from the poor reviews on here and other sites. We are new to the area and there isn't a lot of choice and were faced with the unfriendly faces of two ladies. Neither said anything, so we assumed that even with an appointment we just take a seat on the grubby looking sofa and wait to be seen. It took a while before we were asked if they could help and were fairly politely told to hang tight and our fitter… Read Full Review

Totally agree. Just walked out of here today mid conversation with the deeply unpleasant woman on the 'reception' desk. She was just lucky I was in a good mood and not prepared to take her to task about the rude, unprofessional way I was greeted. She treated me and my bridesmaids as an inconvenience rather than a customer. Sadly for her I took my money elsewhere. I don't know many businesses who can afford two grand to walk out the door. But it did.

“Happy”

Written on: 18/02/2012 by rooiwyn (1 review written)

I went to the wedding dress shop, still on a big high from getting engaged. My mother had to fly back to her home country where I only had 1 day to share this special experience with her. Thank you to a friendly team taking all their time with myself and my mother we had a very special experience. The lady who helped me has been for a long time in this industry. She took her knowledge and experience and showed me by trying on different styles of dresses - what will work for my body type and… Read Full Review

“Shame....”

Written on: 26/05/2011

I purchased my wedding dress from their shop in Croydon which closed down & i was transferred to the Sydenham branch. My experience from Croydon was very pleasant unlike the Sydenham branch. I went there for my fitting and it was very disappointing. The woman who fitted my dress wasn't particularly friendly and I felt like i was bring rushed, the area upstairs for the fitting wasn't very nice, the seats were very dated and the whole area needed doing up. The changing room wasn't big enough for… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2011

The staff at the sydenham branch were very rude, I visited 3 other bridal shops before choosing my dress and had a great experience in all of them appart from ring o roses, the staff are rude,the shop is dirty and at one point I saw 2 girls sharring a changing room.

Buying your wedding dres should be one of the most exciting times in a girls life so do not go to Ring o Roses,

It is a low budget shop but you would still expect the staff to be helpful and polite. I have never known anything… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2011

I have been to 6 shops, this is the worst service ever! I already had some ideas before going to the shop, but still wanted to try some other styles. The assistant only allowed me to choose 4 dresses to start with, and then she left me in the fitting area with dress one, and found me a few others, i didnt like none of her choice, but I still tried on , just being polite. Then she told one of her colleagues that I have tried on 9 already. BUT there is only FOUR of them are my own choice!… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

I found Ring O' Roses on a google search after being frustrated that none of the previous two dress shops I had been to stock the Allure Bridal collection. From the moment I booked my appointment over the phone with Augusta, I knew that it would be a great experience. My mum and sister came with me to the shop and we were welcomed with a warm smile by one of the assistants and were then introduced to Augusta who would be looking after me. We immediately felt comfortable and were allowed to… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/01/2011

I visited the Sydenham branch of Ring O Roses on 29th Jan 2011 with the Bride and the other 3 Bridesmaids. I was disgusted at the service and treatment we received. On arrival at the shop for the fitting we were not greeted with "Hello" but instantly told you are only allowed to bring 2 people with you. However the Bride had already called ahead to say she was bringing 4 people with her and told this would be ok but only 2 people would be allowed in the fitting area at one time so we would… Read Full Review

I am very sorry that the person before me had bad service from this store, I myself being a big girl had altogether different out come. When I arrived at the store I tried 3 dresses not because of my size but because I'm fussy. They were very good in customer service and in fact helped more then my best friend who choose a plain dress that I didn't like, so my time with them was great I picked a the most beautiful lace dress and it had to be good as my brother and parents cried. My wedding… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2010

I went to Ring O Roses with my friend the Bride to Be and the staff were so unhelpful and very rude on this occassion. My friend was looking through the dresses and was serious about finding one from this shop as we lived locally and always said when we get married we would go there for our dresses. The staff did not offer help and when my friend enquired about size 16 dresses. The woman was shocking and basically sneered and said that they probably wouldn't have anything that fits her - theres… Read Full Review
