“Worst customer service ever! We were rushed out the shop!”

Written on: 24/05/2015

I visited here yesterday with my two bridesmaids for what I understood to be an appointment for my bridesmaid dresses play accessories for me (this is what I had asked for on the phone). We arrived to a quite stern, uninterested looking lady who was quite happy to ignore us for a minute until she was ready to acknowledge our presence. She then took my name and took us over to another lady who was going to deal with us. Again, this lady didn't acknowledge us and we were left standing there for… Read Full Review

“Great selection, great service!”

Written on: 22/05/2015

I originally booked an appointment at The Wedding Shop as they stocked a dress that I had found online. I went with my mum, and the assistant showed me the dress that I had seen, and helped me to find other dresses that could suit. They had an amazing selection of stunning dresses, but I managed to choose all by the same designer! We started by trying on the dress that I had gone to see, and I loved it! I did try the others on, but the decision was already made. The assistant was really… Read Full Review

“Misquoted alterations”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by AnaMiller (1 review written)

I went to the wedding shop in Colchester as I grew up there and my parents still live in the area and kindly offered to buy my dress (I live 190 miles away now) I found the perfect dress in November last year but had a baby 4 months prior therefore was still carrying alot of baby weight which I explained to the lady. I went back a few days later to show my dad who asked me to be measured up so he could purchase. I asked a smaller size than what I was measuring for the previous reason and was… Read Full Review

Lovely and welcoming atmosphere when we arrived, had never visited the shop before and all staff were extremely helpful. I have 3 bridesmaids of which all 3 are totally different heights, shapes and sizes!! All staff did their up most to find a dress to suit all girls and successfully at that. I am now awaiting arrival of my dresses and the staff have kept me aware of their status since ordering.

For any of you out there that wondering where to shop, visit The Wedding Shop in Colchester. I have just bought my second Mother of the Bride outfit from the same shop, (wedding dress and bridesmaids) as they have a tremendous selection to suit just about everyone. They are very helpful, really knowing their job and soon understood exactly what I wanted, picking out things for me that I would never have tried but absolutely loved once on! They were not at all 'pushy' and I felt I didn't have… Read Full Review

I bought my beautiful Suzanne Neville wedding dress and three gorgeous bridesmaid dresses from The Wedding Shop in Colchester for my wedding in August this year. I went and explored many other shops in the local area and London too and 'The Wedding Shop' won hands down for its first-class service, their friendliness and the marvellous selection of wedding dresses!! The lovely ladies working there are so professional and friendly, the shop is spacious and welcoming and unlike several other… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2013 by Alewater (1 review written)

I required a suit as i was invited to Buckingham palace for a Queen's garden party. As the dress code was morning or lounge suit, I needed to make sure I really looked the part. I called the shop and was put through to the men's department who arranged a time convenient for me to visit. When I arrive I was whisked upstairs where a delightful member of staff went through all the options and colours. She took my mesurements and found some example suits to try on to get a good fit. My suit… Read Full Review

“Nightmare!!”

Written on: 24/08/2013 by unsatisfiedcustomer001 (1 review written)

I randomly called into the wedding shop Colchester to look at bridesmaid dresses! I fell in love with one of the dresses and had one of my bridesmaids with me who tired on the dress in the shop and it fitted perfectly! I was told the dress was being discontinued and had 3 days to get the order in or I wouldn't get it at all! This gave me little time to consider my options and my other bridesmaid was un available to try the dress on although they were both of a similar size! The lady in the shop… Read Full Review

I went to the Wedding Shop the first time, to get a mother of the bride outfit and came away with the most amazing outfit, which I loved wearing. So when it was my turn to look for a wedding dress I returned to the shop and I had another wonderful experience. The staff were attentive and helpful, they didn't rush me but offered suggestions. The shop is spacious, welcoming and calm, which is what I needed! As I had been there before, the staff remembered me and even suggested I try on a dress… Read Full Review

The lady here saved my day!! After a total disaster with my original wedding dress I telephoned The Wedding Shop Colchester in tears and total panic. She calmed me down on the phone and was professional, warm and caring. She reassured me that The Wedding Shop would help me in every way they could and that is what they did. A last minute visit there today was such a wonderful experience. She found me the PERFECT dress and took so much time and care reassuring me every step of the way. She… Read Full Review

The shop is elegant and roomy enough for help many brides at one time. They helped me find my dress from so many that I tried on. She was so warm and friendly and helped me stick to my budget even though there were many more expensive dresses. The dress I got was a new designer into their shop and the price for the quality of the itemwasoutstanding. I would highly recommend anyone to go there as they have a range for everyone. I was lucky enough that they had a sale the week after finding my… Read Full Review
