“Excellent service”

Written on: 03/04/2016 by bxKelley372 (1 review written)

Greeted in a friendly way, and let my daughter take her time to pick wedding dresses to try on. Good advice given and lots of patience provided by the assistant. We went into look and ended up buying the wedding and bridesmaids dresses. Alterations to the dresses are needed and are booked in for this to take place at Grays. We were not interested in having cups of tea or champagne just to have good prices for the dresses and being served in a professional and friendly way, which was received. A… Read Full Review

Well I was absolutely dreading going wedding dress shopping .. I'm a bigger girl and expected to find it difficult. But I loved the experience .. You were left alone with your guests to find the ones you liked then a very helpful lady helped me try them on . She was so helpful and knew what would be good for me and what wouldn't be !! I now have the dress of my dreams on order all thanks the lovely ladies !! Roll on June when I get married .. I also plan to take my bridesmaids and maid of… Read Full Review

“The wedding starts here!!”

Written on: 18/07/2015 by SueLivermore (1 review written)

What a fantastic time we had this morning!! This was our first attempt in my daughter's wedding dress search, but the friendly and helpful service made it a very enjoyable time. We were allowed to roam around the racks to choose the first few dresses for my daughter to try, without any rush. Once she was ready, an assistant came straight over to start dressing her. She didn't mind how many dresses my daughter tried on, in fact she selected some herself!! My daughter chose 2 she really liked… Read Full Review

“Not Bothered”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by Peterson99 (1 review written)

My daughter and I went to this store last year around September time to initially see if they stocked a certain designer. They did not, however we did see a dress there after trying on several that was exactly what my daughter wanted. We ordered this to be made in a long style and my daughter was measured up accordingly. There was no absolute explanation at time of how the store operated. All they said was that it takes 20 weeks for the dress to arrive in store at which time we would be… Read Full Review

“The best weding dress shop i have been in”

Written on: 13/09/2013

I came across Special ooccasions Bridal in Stanford le hope by complete accident and I am delighted that I did. I had an appointment at another bridal shop nearby which turned out to be extremely disappointing so we were by chance recommended to go here. We turned up with no appointment and the lady who greeted our party was extremely helpful and professional. She explained the range available in full and suggested we browse to see if anything might catch my eye. She gave me adequate time to… Read Full Review

“Great customer service”

Written on: 10/03/2013

I got married abroad last month and bought my wedding dress from Special Occasions. I had been to many bridal shops prior to visiting this one and can honestly say that the service I received was second to none. I did not feel pressured into a sale and found all the staff really helpful. I was also remembered by name and feel that it is these little personal touches that mean a lot but often get missed. All I can say is that I had a very good experience with Special Occasions and would… Read Full Review

“Worst shop i have ever been in!!”

Written on: 05/03/2013

Patronising staff who didn't appear to pay any attention to what i actually wanted (my theme is purple so why are you trying to show me red dresses???) Just generally unfriendly bunch of people who did not seem willing to help. No one helped me look through the racks, no cup of tea was offered. I also got the impression that i shouldn't be bothered with as i only have one bridesmaid and therefore would not be spending much money in store. Implied that i was fat (i am a very busty size 16) so… Read Full Review

“All the staff at special occasions are so helpful and...”

Written on: 05/01/2011

All the staff at special occasions are so helpful and patient. Went to two other bridal shops and made to feel uncomfortable because i do not have a perfect figure. Not only are you looked after by real women at Special occasions they make suggestions about different dresses, consider where you are having your wedding.....just the whole package. Felt so special. This is my 2nd marriage and i brought my 1st dress from SP 14 years ago. The service is still as good if not better. Thank you… Read Full Review

I couldnt believe the price of my dress, i had £1500 to spend, but my dress was only £600.a few weeks later,i went back with my bridesmaids, the lady at the desk… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2010 by nickyb87 (1 review written)

I used this shop before when my brother was getting married to buy bridesmaid dresses. It was ok but they made us feel like an inconvenience, though the dresses were nice.

Now it's my turn to get married I thought i'd check them out to see what wedding dresses they had to offer. I didn't manage to get as far as trying anything on.. Though lots of staff standing around, from the point I walked in the door with my mother we were totally ignored and made to feel in the way. They were a bit… Read Full Review

“Special Occasions is a gem of a shop, a bridal store...”

Written on: 02/02/2010

Special Occasions is a gem of a shop, a bridal store based in Stanford-le-hope in Essex.

We encountered very poor servce from a different store in Lakeside but did find THE dress. At £1000 I thought I'd ring around other local stockists to see how much they charged. Special Occasions was only 10mles away but were charging £650 for the same dress by the same designer so we decided to pay them a visit, and I'm so glad we did.

Website: www.essexwedding.org it is a fairly basic site but gives you… Read Full Review
