“Waste of money”

Written on: 06/08/2021

I got my wedding photos back and just sobbed. The shop were meant to adjust my straps but in all my ceremony pics they have fallen down and look awful. I hate my wedding photos because the dress fittings failed. There is also bunching in where the shop said they’d take the dress in. The dress looks ill fitting. I spent so much on the dress and spent so much extra on adjustments but I wish I’d gone elsewhere now as I spent most of my wedding day pulling my straps up. There was also black… Read Full Review

“Mother of the bride outfit”

Written on: 06/07/2021 by Charlotte09 (1 review written)

I contacted the Wedding Shop and spoke to a lady about a Mother of the Bride outfit I'd seen on their website and she gave guidance and advice that led me to purchase it. The outfit was neatly and securely packed and arrived two days later. I am thrilled to bits and would recommend this lovely shop to friends… Read Full Review

“Mother of the Bride outfit”

Written on: 10/05/2021 by Alicia12 (1 review written)

Went yesterday for my outfit and the lady who helped me was so obliging and went above and beyond to help me find the right outfit. Nothing was too much trouble. Tried on various styles until I was totally happy and found the perfect hat to go with it. Went with my two daughters and we all had a lovely experience. We had an hours journey but totally worth it. Would highly recommend… Read Full Review

“Mother of the Bride shopping”

Written on: 25/03/2020 by AnneAitken16 (1 review written)

Who would have thought the search for the all important outfit could be such a positive experience and good fun too! From the moment my daughter and I entered the shop last Friday we felt welcomed and the person we saw (wish I could name her) was friendly and was certainly experienced. She knew what style suited me, was patient with my dithering and kept telling me to take my time. I came away with the perfect outfit. My daughter and I wondered, shall we travel from Ware, is it going to be a… Read Full Review

“I dont like outfit shopping but these ladies make it...”

Written on: 28/02/2020 by CAOwens (1 review written)

All staff in the wedding shop are completely honest with their opinions ...you won’t walk out with something that clearly doesn’t suit ! they sussed out style and colours that suit me as soon I walked through the door ... no pushy sales people ,just very knowledgeable, professional and delightful ladies who know their clients requirements and deal with your needs in an easy and gentle manner ... I absolutely hate clothes shopping but my experience and purchase was a delight ... the shop is… Read Full Review

“I'm in love”

Written on: 01/06/2019 by CGlen92 (1 review written)

Visited this shop twice. First visit and I had a fabulous time trying on wedding dresses of all shapes and sizes. Narrowed my choices down to four and came back again a few months later with the Mums in tow. Second visit was with another lady who was absolutely amazing. I had emailed previously about a dress I'd seen on Instagram and she kindly found it for me and added it to my shortlist. This dress ended up being 'the one.' Despite some of my entourage not fully agreeing with my choice she… Read Full Review

I bought my wedding dress here from this shop when I married in 1985 and therefore returned there to shop for my daughters wedding. She didn’t find anything she liked, for which I am now very grateful but we did purchase her bridesmaids dresses and an outfit for me. When we arrived at the shop for an appointment previously made with the 4 bridesmaids, they had booked the date incorrectly and therefore were not ready for us. We were ushered to a small changing room away from where the… Read Full Review

“Amazing Customer Service ”

Written on: 22/02/2019 by Cath17 (1 review written)

My daughter and I travelled from Scotland to look for my mother of the bride outfit, I had purchased an outfit here 6 years ago and wanted to return. We had the most amazing experience in this boutique, from the minute we went through the door there was a nice atmosphere. I was introduced to Suzy who was very professional, sincere and helpful she advised me on different styles she thought would suit and then asked what my preferences were, and what I liked and didn’t like. There was an… Read Full Review

“Rude staff and they don’t even know there own products ”

Written on: 27/01/2019 by Kaneax93 (1 review written)

Me and my bridesmaids visited to get their bridesmaids dresses. My bridesmaids picked the dress they loved. It was a little overpriced for what it was. But I wanted them to feel special on the day and have the dress they wanted so I went out of my price range and said yes. We where then taken downstairs to make the order and payment. When we got down there the lady soon realised someone had put the wrong tag on the dress and it wasn’t the same brand that she originally though. They then… Read Full Review

“Beautiful dresses with a less than beautiful service!”

Written on: 12/04/2018 by LuluGell (1 review written)

Mum and I visited the shop for my Mum's 'mother of the bride' outfit. Mum lives in London so it is quite far for her but we liked the look of the website. We got off to a fantastic start with Petra, there was so much selection and not enough that she could do for us, and we had a really fun afternoon. Mum went ahead and ordered an Ian Stuart dress and the matching hat, she also paid for alterations so the dress fitted her perfectly. Mum and I were excited to go back to try her dress on… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service from Suzy”

Written on: 09/01/2017 by Npyle (1 review written)

After being very nervous I was put at ease from Suzy who advised me and gave me some great tips which has been extremely helpful and she was totally warm and caring. Once my dress came they arranged and altered it beautifully. Totally professional service and couldn't have wished for anymore. No pressure selling. Just exactly what I wanted.

“Great experience ”

Written on: 25/11/2015 by KirstieT (1 review written)

I went with my parents to have a look and didn't actually expect to buy my dress that day, but our experience was excellent and I ended up finding the dress of my dreams! She was so friendly and helpful and very patient. She let me try on the number of gowns and get a really great advice and tips. Highly recommended! I ended up getting a discontinued Jenny Packham for half the press, yay!… Read Full Review

Great wedding dress selection and great experience. I was able to try on lots of different dresses to find the one that best suited me from the help of the very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it to a friend, in fact I was recommended by my friend. The shop is very clean and well designed. I plan on going back to find my bridesmaids dresses too… Read Full Review

“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

What can I say, as mother of the bride to be, our personal assistant was superb, from the time we entered the shop, it was a completely enjoyable experience. There was no pressure to buy a dress, some really good feedback on The dresses we picked, and a glass of bubbly to top it off. fantastic, I would recommend this to every bride to be… Read Full Review
