Client Testimonials

I received fantastic service from all the staff at Bride to Be – They were great at helping me to choose my dress, the wedding dress that I ended up purchasing was one that was recommended to me by a member of the team and I instantly feel in love with it! From there I had several appointments, some were to just come and try the dress on to find suitable accessories etc and some visits were to do my fittings etc at each appointment I received great service and a very friendly helpful attitude. The seamstress was an absolute gem, she made me feel so comfortable. I was very conscious of my tummy in my dress and had been working hard / dieting, she was brilliant made me feel so relaxed, gave me great advise and the adjustments she made to my dress were PERFECT! I felt so confident and comfortable in my dress on the day and I would 100% recommend Bride to Be – go and have a look the store is beautiful and the range is great!

I was so happy with the service that I received when I came here a few weeks ago. Emma was incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable of their dresses and what styles would suit what body shape. They were able to help me find the exact dress that I wanted and i couldn't be happier. I bought my dress, veil, accessories and all of my bridesmaids dresses from the shop. They made me feel incredibly comfortable and I cannot wait to go back for fittings. Thank you for helping my find the perfect dress. I recommended the shop to my Sister-In-Law to be who is also getting married this year and after having no luck at previous shops found her perfect dress too! Bride To Be have a dress for everyone!

Laura, March 2018

A huge thank you to Emma and the lovely ladies at ‘Bride to Be’ for their kindness and patience in helping me to find the wedding dress of my dreams last week!

Emma had a great understanding of the type of gown I was looking for and her recommendations were spot on! I had a magical experience trying on the most stunning gowns and was thrilled to find ‘the one, ’not to mention my gorgeous tiara!

You were all so warm, friendly and professional, I will definitely be recommending you far and wide! Thank you again, Rebecca xxx

Just wanted to say a Massive thank you to all the lovely ladies who have helped me choose my beautiful essence of Australia dress. They went above and beyond for me and I couldn’t thank them enough. Would totally recommend them to everyone xx

Michelle, Jan 2018

I loved this shop the moment I walked in, it's beautiful. I received a lovely warm welcome and very attentive help, with time to browse the many gorgeous dresses.

Bride to Be have an exquisite collection. As it turned out, I bought the first dress I tried on! I had plenty of time to try the dresses, and tried different styles with the advice of the shop staff.

I'm delighted with my dress, thank you to the staff at Bride to Be.

Rachel, Jan 2018

Cannot thank Bride to Be enough - the variety of dresses they hold is far better than the other bridal shops I visited, the customer service is exemplary, you are truly made to feel like the most important person in the world!

Always there with support and suggestions, fittings were excellent and the final dress was more than I ever could have imagined!

No need to look anywhere else - THANK YOU!

Lucy Radley, Jan 2018

OMG what can I say about Stephanie and the store other than brilliant! I had a complete disaster from a different store with only 8 weeks left till my wedding BRIDE TO BE have sorted me out with my dream dress and I cannot wait to pick it up, the staff are so welcoming and turned my stress into a pleasure visit.

My Daughter is also getting married next year and the staff were very happy for her bridesmaids to try on almost all of the dresses (That's girls for you)..

I cannot thank Stephanie enough and look forward to seeing you in a few weeks for my fitting.:-)

There are not enough thank yous to Emma, Magdalena and all the team for helping me find my beautiful Essence dress...

Your shop is beautiful, there are so many styles and sizes, and most importantly, the service and care is beyond amazing, with a very relaxed atmosphere.

To all brides to be, you HAVE to visit! The best experience when saying yes to the dress.

Thank you all

Jelena, Sept 2017

Hello Bride to Be Team! Just a quick message to say a HUGE thank you for all of your help over the past 12 months, with helping me to pick my dress, putting up with me when I changed my mind 3 months later and then ordering a dress you didn't even stock!

You helped me find my dream dress and I felt like a princess the entire day. Thank you to all the team that helped make this possible!!! Pictures to come soon of the dress

Jade, 3 Sept 2017

Visiting Bride To Be was a pleasure. The staff were very friendly, patient and supportive. After my second visit I said 'Yes to the dress!'

The staff are very knowledgeable and helped put my mind at ease. They had a range of dresses, varying in style and price. Although, my dress was no longer in the shop they still said they could order it in for me. Emma was a brilliant consultant and would highly recommend any future brides to visit the shop!

Katie, 31st Aug 2017

Your beautiful shop is by far the best I had visited on my search for the perfect dress! Special thank you to Emma who helped me find the dress and was patient with me being very specific with what I wanted!

Also to Magdalena who did the most amazing alterations and additions to my dress which made it the most perfect dress. I felt like a princess on Saturday! From the new Mrs Delaney

Sophie, 28 Aug 2017

Such friendly and helpful staff! I appreciated their honest opinion and felt that they shared my hope of finding 'the dress' rather than 'a dress'. such a beautiful shop and plenty of dresses to try...I can't wait to wear my beautiful gown down the aisle on my big day.

Thank you Emma for your help... (despite my distracting giggling sisters!)

Tara Andrady, 3 Febuary 2017

My mum and I visited in January without realising we needed to book an appointment, but all of the girls were amazing and managed to squeeze me in between appointments.

First we were seen by Emma, she was so lovely and helped me pick out a bunch of different style dresses but had an appointment she had to attend to half way through (completely understandable as I didn't make an appointment) and Stephanie took over. Steph was just as lovely and attentive as Emma and again, helped me pick a bunch of different dresses. They were very open about pricing and made us aware of dresses that were going to be in an upcoming sale as well.

In the end, I think I asked every single girl that worked there which dress I should choose - I feel like I got genuine, honest responses from everyone and I don't regret my choice at all.

Thank you all so much for making the day so enjoyable, especially when I hadn't booked! I couldn't recommend you highly enough.

Chrissi Taylor, 30 January 2017

Had a great morning with Emma! She was very helpful and professional. Believe it or not, the second dress I tried on turned out to be the one!

Thank you for your help Emma and celebratory bubbles too. I cannot wait to have my beautiful dress on again!

Kristina Khan, 30 January 2017

Amazing! Emma was fabulous and understood everything I wanted and I found my dream dress. It's such a beautiful shop and everyone is so friendly and helpful.

Daisy Lawrenson, 25 January 2017

Emma was just brilliant, very helpful and attentive and she found my perfect dress one I would not have seen if not for her.

Great selection of dresses, would highly recommend a visit. Thank you

Tina, 20 January 2017

Dawn (and all the staff) was so friendly and welcoming. She was great at guiding me to pick out dresses that would suit me and make me feel amazing - so much so that it was a real struggle to pick one dress out of so many beautiful dresses!

Dawn pinned the dress so I could see exactly how it would fit once tailored. There was no pressure to buy on the day and the store even opened early for me a week later so they could fit me in at short notice to make my final decision. I'm so happy with the dress I've chosen and can't wait to collect it this summer. Thank you so much!

Hannah Cunningham, 23 January 2017

Tried on wedding dresses for the very first time today- I was so excited but also a bit nervous! I was lucky enough to have Lorraine throughout my trial and she was amazing and put me so at ease with everything! She also found a dress for me that I absolutely fell in love with. Thank you Lorraine!

Jeannie Garratt, 10 April 2016
