“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. Through my own fault I left it rather late to order but they have been fanstatic throughout and no… Read Full Review

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

“Perfect service, wonderful assistant”

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

“Yet again, another successful shopping day!”

Written on: 20/08/2013 by MaggieGreen (1 review written)

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

Written on: 22/06/2013 by EcstaticBride (1 review written)

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

Not only are the staff extremely professional and friendly they go out of their way to help you, after a personal tragedy they went above and beyond to make things better for me and I left the shop feeling happier then I had in days.

“Fabulous ”

Written on: 12/02/2013 by alice_leach (1 review written)

The night before I started dress shopping I was so nervous and didn't sleep well. We are planning our wedding in 9 months so I didn't have lots of time to mull over things, having said that I wasn't sure I felt ready to shop. The Wedding Shop completely changed that for me. From the moment we arrived I felt relaxed and completely at ease. The shop is beautifully laid out, with plenty of space for trying on the dresses (unlike some other local shops). [name removed] helped me try on and… Read Full Review

“Let us down, took no responsibility.”

Written on: 11/02/2013

I made enquiries about a particular dress to buy, then asked if it was in stock for me to look at on the following Sunday. I was told that the shop had the model, size and colour I wanted, so I made an appointment. I live a long way from Colchester (in London), and I asked my mother, who had to come from France, and my sister, from Wiltshire, to come along. When we got there, the staff knew the time of the appointment but not the item I'd been asked to see. After a lot of searching they found… Read Full Review

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff, and in particular [name removed] for making my wedding dress shopping experience a wonderful one. When I was there for my first consultation [name removed] listened to my ideas of what my dream dress would be like and suggested I try a couple of different ones on that had just arrived in store that very day. I was so pleased she advised me, as one of those dresses was 'the one'. I didn't feel that I was being pressured into deciding on a… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2013

I cannot praise the staff and in particular Lesley for the time and patience she gave me when I recently twice visited The Wedding Shop to choose an outfit for my daughters wedding. Time was given freely (a lot of time!) and there was never a feeling of being hurried or pushed into making a decision. All the girls working there were so friendly as they passed by whilst dealing with other customers. The Wedding Shop is a lovely space to shop in and I would highly recommend it to anybody. I am… Read Full Review
