“Amazing dress and wonderful service”

Written on: 09/07/2017 by amandac87 (1 review written)

The service I received at Satin Bow Bridal was truly second to none. The amount of care dedication and attention to detail that I received on the numerous visits that I made to the shop truly surpassed all expectations. The dress was a bespoke and fitted like a glove. I received a plethora of comments on my special day from friends and family ( including the grooms side too). Having this dress truly made me feel very special and I invite anyone to go and have their dress made in this most… Read Full Review

“Wonderful ”

Written on: 29/08/2016 by pvAllison435 (1 review written)

Satin Bow is an amazing shop run by the fabulously warm, friendly and talented lady! I absolutely adore my wedding dress and didn't find anything else like it through my whole wedding dress hunt. It fit me perfectly thanks to her expert tailoring, and every time I visited her shop, I really looked forward to it! She also came to the rescue when my mum had to change her wedding outfit at the last minute- she made us both feel confident in our dresses and we had THE BEST DAY EVER. DEFO VISIT… Read Full Review

“Perfect Satin Bow !”

Written on: 06/02/2016 by MrsMc3012 (1 review written)

Satin Bow was just perfect for me ! Having lost my mum when I was younger & not being the type of girl who had dreamt of a big white wedding since being a child, I found myself a bit lost in the world of weddings. Victoria made the whole experience something to enjoy, rather than dread, with her fun attitude, friendly personality & gorgeous shop. I loved my dress - simple, with a minimum amount fuss - just what I was looking for. I cannot thank Satin Bow enough - everything about it ticked all… Read Full Review

“Friendly and Fantastic service”

Written on: 08/07/2015 by asilecnub (1 review written)

I was secretly dreading going to get my wedding dress as I'm much more comfortable wearing trousers and a swipe of mascara is about the limit of my daily make-up regime. Im my head I built up scenes of the experience resembling the scene in Pretty Woman where the shop assistants on Rodeo Drive look Julia Roberts up and down with disdain, but I needn't have worried. From the moment I walked in the door, the team put me at my ease, with a friendly greeting and never anything less than a wholly… Read Full Review

“Great shop in St Albans”

Written on: 01/03/2013

Although I didnt make my final choice from Satin Bow Bridal I was more than impressed with the service I received from Victoria, the atmosphere in the shop was friendly and Vicotria was lovely and chatty to get you relaxed. The range of dresses are fairly small but excellent designs and there is a large changing room and massive mirrors around the shop for you to enjoy the experience. The dresses are mainly in the £1500 price bracket without alterations which are capped at £300 so if this… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service, friendly staff beautiful dresses”

Written on: 31/01/2013 by MrsKB3 (1 review written)

I went to Satin Bow Bridal last January (2012) ahead of my wedding in September 2012 to look at the dresses. Although I fell in love with one on my first visit Victoria (the owner) urged me to think about it rather than put down a deposit that day, a breath of fresh air compared with all the other shops I went into which tried to pressure you to commit that day. There are many different dresses on offer for a wide variety of prices and Victoria really helped pick some dresses for me to try on… Read Full Review

“I love Satin Bow!”

Written on: 18/12/2012 by MrsJLewis (1 review written)

I bought both my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses from Satin Bow! The service that Victoria gave us all was amazing, she made sure that I felt special whilst triumphantly understanding my bridesmaids needs and personalities! She understood exactly what I wanted and went out of her way to make it happen, the little tweaks to my dress made me feel so special and amazing on my big day! I have already recommended Satin Bow to a number of my friends. I can't wait for someone to ask me to be a… Read Full Review

Victoria and Charlotte are fab.....They both felt like my friends from the minute i walked into the shop.They provided me the best service anyone could ever wish for .My Wedding dress was purchased else where but needed some complicated alterations.

“Amazing service & style”

Written on: 22/06/2012

I was married in May this year in a beautiful dress from Satin Bow Bridal. The personal attention I received from Victoria made me feel so special & confident, right from the start. The dress was stunning & it fitted beautifully. I couldn't have asked for any more. It stayed looking fantastic all day & even withstood the disco in the evening. The shop is beautiful and the range of dresses is fantastic. Victoria led me towards the dresses that really did look best on me, as I had no idea. I… Read Full Review

“Very talented”

Written on: 09/06/2012 by Tillysept (1 review written)

I popped into satin bow looking for flower girl dress. They welcomed me in straight away even though I didn't have an appointment... Which most bridal shops would not be so accommodating !! The young lady Charlotte hand made the most beautiful dress for my daughter which she drew from scratch from ideas of mine, her own and wishes from my 5 year old!! The dress was made within a couple of weeks at a very resonable price. The dress was perfect!! Sadly I had already found my wedding dress but… Read Full Review

“My Favourite Shop”

Written on: 14/05/2012 by Lellie-m (1 review written)

I visited Satin Bow Bridal and was bowled over by the friendliness of Victoria. She was professional, caring, honest and very knowledgeable about wedding dresses and what would be best for me and my figure. She certainly was more helpful than I have found anywhere else in St Albans. I did not feel pressured at all, Victoria made me feel at home and gave the most perfect service. It was refreshing to try on lovely dresses, with all the accessories as well, nothing was too much trouble. I… Read Full Review

“Fantatic Fantastic Fantastic”

Written on: 18/03/2012

I cannot recommend enough going to Satin Bow Bridal, It's an amazing setting and Victoria is an amazing lady, she made myself, my Mum and bridesmaids very comfortable and relaxed. The dresses are amazing and I cannot wait to go back for my dress fitting. Victoria gave fantastic ideas to really make the dress the dream I had imaged my dress to be. She made us all feel like we were her friends and having a one on one appointment really makes a difference. Please ignore the previous bad review… Read Full Review

“Best bridal shop in St Albans”

Written on: 10/03/2012

There are so many things that are brilliant about Satin Bow I probably won't be able to fit them all into this review. For one, the shop is gorgeous, the stylish stock is varied, unpredictable and competitively priced, and the one-on-one appointments make you feel very well looked after. But above all, the best thing about Satin Bow is Victoria. She really took the time to understand my style, and I never felt rushed or pressured into buying. My request was a little unusual and she went above… Read Full Review

“The Dream Experience”

Written on: 23/01/2012

I completely agree with the last post. For as long as I've dreamt of my wedding day, I have pictured dress shopping. I have always hoped for the dream experience of feeling like a princess, like the only bride, feeling pampered and beautiful. Satin bow Bridal was the first shop I booked an appointment for, and I'm so glad I did. Victoria and Charlotte were so good; they made my whole family feel special, and I did not feel pressured at all into anything. It is a beautiful shop, and thanks to… Read Full Review

“Wonderful experience”

Written on: 23/01/2012 by EJohnson (1 review written)

I couldn't disagree more with the 'worst experience of my life' review. I went to Satin Bow Bridal after a number of dissapointing experiences in other St Albans bridal shops - those where I was made to feel hurried, where I was one of a number of brides trying on dresses and where those working there were very clearly after a sell, regardless of what I looked like. In contrast Victoria gave us (bridesmaids and mum) every bit the special experience we had hoped it would be. Her dresses are… Read Full Review

“Worst experience of my life. ”

Written on: 07/01/2012

I went to this shop to try on a dress and was served by a woman. I was bitterly disappointed not only with the dress selection but how I was treated by her. She appeared to have no real knowledge for a style that would suit my shape and seemed to only put me in dresses she wanted to sell. She made me look fat and dumpy, everything a bride doesn't want to look. I have now found my perfect dress in another bridal shop in St Albans and would not recommend Satin Bow to any future brides… Read Full Review

“Buying my wedding dress from Victoria at Satin Bow ...”

Written on: 07/01/2011

Buying my wedding dress from Victoria at Satin Bow was a really easy and enjoyable experience...not only does she have impeccable taste in the dresses that she stocks, she is honest, flexible and refreshingly straight up fun to be around.

From start to finish I trusted her opinion - not only did she choose the right dress to suit my body shape, she tweeked it continuously (beyond the call of duty) to fit perfectly. I loved wearing my (Lusan Mandongus) dress - it made me feel much more… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/12/2010

Victoria knew exactly which dress would be perfect on me and it's the one. The level of service and atmosphere of the shop is so different from the other shops I tried that I just could not fathom buying anywhere else. Pricing is competitive and Victoria is very good at giving a good estimate of all other costs involved. I've already recommended Satin Bow Bridal to a friend… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/11/2010 by linda9864 (1 review written)

Fantastic Service and wonderful settings to browse the dresses.

Victoria only sees one customer at a time and apart from my own phone ringing during the appointment we had the place to ourselves.

There was no pressure to buy and Victoria asked us to take our times thinking about what we wanted and not to rush into anything.

The end result was a gown that I felt like a princess in, change in our bank account to spend on the wedding and a brilliant experience.

I would recommend anyone to… Read Full Review
