“Great choice of dresses & wonderful service”

Written on: 25/08/2013 by landyhc (1 review written)

There was only one place I would go to get my Wedding Dress after my Sister in law got hers here 3 years ago. Form the moment I walked in to my appointment to the moment I collected my wedding dress I was treated like a princess. There were so many dresses to choose from & all different sizes & I could try on as many as I liked. Once I'd narrowed it down to 2 dresses I was able to try them on again & again to finally decide, nothing was too much trouble & I was not pressured at all. When I had… Read Full Review

“Wow! Great place, fantastic staff!”

Written on: 10/05/2013

Such a hidden jam. The staff make you feel really special, very accommodating, and incredibly professional. Nothing is too much trouble, very pleased. If you looking for "the dress", you will definetly find it here, they've got plenty to chosse from. I would recommend to visit months (6 at least) before the big day, but if you like me leave it for the last minute, they still able to help you, but can't have as many options. … Read Full Review

“Wonderful staff and atmosphere! ”

Written on: 25/03/2013

Not a bad word to say about the whole experience. I have been a to a couple of wedding dress shops before and was genuinely dreading going to another as they weren't the most fun experiences. We were about 1/2 hour early but a staff member explained that my sales assistant (who I believe was called [name removed]) was still seeing someone but went to check and then said that she could see me now. The lady who served me took the time to ask who I was shopping with before taking our coats. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2013

I'm so glad you had a lovely time in our shop and thank you so much for your kind comments! From 27th April we are indeed going to charge for appointments at premium times in the shop (Saturdays and evenings) but for weekday appointments, there will be no charge , nor a charge for Bridesmaids appointments at any time.
As you rightly say, the money will be refunded when you order your gown, and is actually for two appointments..... So you should be able to get both sides of your family in on different Saturdays without paying extra!
Hope to see you again soon x :-)

“Thank you for your kindness and making us feel special.”

Written on: 09/03/2013 by Carolinedearson (1 review written)

I would like to say a huge thank you. For making my daughter feel like a special princess this afternoon, after being reduced to tears by another very unprofessional wedding shop in the same locality. Your staff wiped her tears away and made her feel like she was beautiful and gave her her confidence back. Thank you all so so much… Read Full Review

“Perfect Shop, Perfect Dress, Perfect Day”

Written on: 16/05/2012 by Jeyes (1 review written)

Bellissima was the first Bridal shop I visited, as I had heard so many good things about it I thought it was a good place to start, and I really had no need to go and look anywhere else. This shop is perfect, with such a fantastic range of dresses and shoes to choose from, but not only that, the Staff are brilliant, they made the whole experience exciting and very calming, and it felt very personal, which every bride-to-be needs. I would highly recommend any bride-to-be, mother of the bride… Read Full Review

I purchased my dress from Bellissima Weddings in South Woodham Ferrers for my wedding in Dec 08. I cannnot speak highly enough of them. From the moment I walked into to the shop to collecting my dress the service was faultless. When looking for my dress I visited over 10 bridal shops & can honestly say that Bellissima have the best selection of the most beautiful dress, amazingly helpful, friendly & patient staff & the shop is beautiful. I would recommend them to anyone… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2009 by Nikki82 (1 review written)

I brought my dress from Bellissima Weddings after trying so many on before i knew that i had found my perfect dress.
Great shop, great staff, great choice. Helpful staff who knew their trade and really understood the needs of a rather neurotic bride to be! However at no time did i find the staff pushy or that they pressurised me in to making any decisions which was great.
Great choice of dresses and accessories. Shop policy disallowed photos in the shop. i understand why however disappointing… Read Full Review

“I visited Bellissima weddings after being recommended...”

Written on: 28/11/2008

I visited Bellissima weddings after being recommended it by so many people and i felt i had to write to and tell all brides to be out there, about the fantastic time i had there. The dresses are amazing, and so many of them in every style you can imagine. The shop is set out beautifully in sections, with the styles of dresses, so you don't have to look through. Instead you can just bypass that section if it is not the style you are looking for. It was so lovely to go to a shop where they had a… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/11/2008

I went to Bellissima Weddings for my first time at bridal shopping. And I couldn't have been more thrilled with the service, how beautiful their dress samples were and what good condition they were in. It can be quite a daunting feeling walking into a shop and straight away I felt at ease. All the ladies that worked there were very helpful and the atmosphere was lovely especially as saturdays are very busy but I felt like I was the only bride in the room. The shop itself is decorated fabulous… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2008 by Elizabeth 23 (1 review written)

The Bellissima Weddings shop itself is beautifully appointed and very accessible with adequate car parking close by.
The interior is a wonderland of beautiful gowns over a wide price range and every care was taken to ensure my gown, shoes, and even underwear fitted perfectly.
Selection and fittings were made around my time schedule which sometimes were late evenings… Read Full Review

If a shop doesn't have the dress you want to try on or has sold the original sample dress you tried on not allowing you a second try on my advice would be to go to a shop that has it in stock!… Read Full Review

Laura Daly's Response to AUK's Review

Written on: 17/06/2008

I'm sorry that you felt this way but, just to put the record straight, the facts are these... You wanted to see 3 Ian Stuart dresses - one we still have; one we had sold to a desperate bride; and one that we have never had as a sample. Without any prompting from you, we offered to get the one that we had sold at no cost to you; this would have left one fee of &pound;30 pay. In any event, the sample loan fee is fully refundable if you subsequently purchase one of those gowns from us, and this was made perfectly clear.<br/><br/>We will always do everything we can to help our customers see the gowns they like but, unfortunately, we cannot possibly carry a sample of every design from every company. We have to pay a fee to borrow the samples and, of course, there are administration and postage charges to bear in mind. The &pound;30 fee you pay is completely refundable if you buy the gown, so most people accept that this is a fairly reasonable arrangement, also, this is not something that we hide, it is explained on the relevant pages on our website, and is common practice in most bridal shops. As a small business, we are regrettably not in a position to be able to ' swallow' these charges - as you had suggested when you called us. We sometimes get 4 or 5 sample requests in a day from various brides; if we didn't charge for this service and the the brides didn't turn up for their appointments (and, yes, this does happen) or had no intention of purchasing a dress from us, we would be operating our business at a loss. As it stands, we make no profit from the sample loan service, but see it as a way of offering to our customers a wider range of gowns than we could possibly stock.

Written on: 21/06/2007 by annet (2 reviews written)

I went to Belissima Weddings in South Woodham Ferrers after being a victim of Essex Occasions. I "popped" in briefly on my own one Saturday, and they were really busy, but the owner still stopped whatever she was doing and helped me look at the dresses. I was determined to go back, which I did, and I ordered a fantastic Ian Stuart dress.

All the staff are lovely, professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and really make you feel that you are their only customer.

I strongly recommend you visit… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2007 by sarloucocp (1 review written)

I was very anxious, as I had a horrible experience at another shop the week before, and someone suggested Bellissima, as they had an excellent experience with them. I had no idea what I was looking for, but the assistant showed me at least 9 dresses which she said would suit me and my body shape. I desperately wanted a strapless dress, and I was told in another shop that I couldn't get away with it, as my boobs were too big. The assistant at Bellissima Weddings said if I had them I should… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2007 by shona kane (1 review written)

From the moment I walked into the shop, an assistant was there to greet me with a friendly smile, which instantly put me at ease. I tried on several dresses, all of which were beautiful. I never felt rushed by the assistant; if anything I felt that a friend was helping me try on the dresses. The atmosphere at Bellissima Weddings in South Woodham Ferrers was very welcoming and comforting, as trying on lots of dresses to find "the one" can be very daunting. I went to other shops in the… Read Full Review

I was informed about them by a friend, as they stocked Ian Stuart dresses. When I rang for an appointment, the lady was very helpful, as I informed them my wedding was quite soon, and I was worried I did not have enough time to find my dress. I was told I had more than enough time, and Bellissima Weddings would do their best to help me. When I visited the shop in South Woodham Ferrers, within the first ten minutes I noticed how warm and friendly the place and the girls were. I was helped and… Read Full Review
