Unfortunately not a successful trip but the service was good. I understand the first assistant was quite new so a bit tentative, they spoon enough swapped a more experienced assistant in who was very helpful at identifying what I might need to focus on to target my search somewhere else. She didn't pressure me into liking dresses in the shop that I didn't feel suited me which was appreciated.

Thank you for all your help in making the whole experience of trying on a wedding gown so enjoyable. Your choices of gowns are amazing and the selection is great. You gave me confidence in myself to try on gowns out of my comfort zone that looked great.

Amazing service. Was my first bridal appointment trying dresses on so was great to be able to try on as many different styles as possible and not feel pushed into making a purchase. Look foward to visiting again.

Wow!!! I went wedding dress shopping just as the Bride To Be shop had opened. Although there were many restrictions that whole afternoon was perfect. The staff could not have been any more accommodating and it was still so special despite the situation. Nothing was to much of an effort and I could try on as many dresses I liked until I found the one. The selection of stunning dresses they stock is amazing, I travelled over 70 miles to go dress shopping here and I would highly recommend to anyone.

Unbeatable, personable experience. Javaid made me feel so at ease and helped me pick out my absolute dream dress. He is so knowledgeable and down to earth - who’d have thought a guy would be the one to help me say yes to the dress! Stunning shop and selection of dresses. I’m over the moon - thank you so much ??

Amazing time, first dress that was chosen was 'the one'. To say I was nervous going in was an understatement but made me feel so relaxed. Came away speechless and in awe of my dress!!

It was my first time trying on dresses and I was really nervous. As soon as I walked in everybody put me at ease. Emma was amazing. She suggested styles that she thought I would like and she made the whole experience amazing. I have since been to one other shop and they made me feel fat as they tried to squeeze me into smaller dresses, I didn’t feel fat once at Bride to Be the dresses I tried on fitted well and Emma took the time to make sure they were done up properly. Emma was honest about the dresses and didn’t try to push me into anything. I really enjoyed my experience! Thank you.

My experience with Bride to Be has been nothing but amazing! The team are so wonderful and Emma found me my perfect dress (when I didn't even know what my perfect dress was!). I tried a few dresses on that were stunning, but just didn't feel right, then Emma said "why not try this one?" - even though it had some lace on (and I thougt I didn't want lace)... as soon as I put it on I knew it was the on! It was like Emma just knew what the perfect dress would be and I can't thank her enough. Tatiana then did an amazing job on the few alterations it needed to make it extra perfect! The whole team made me feel so welcome every time I stepped in the shop, they're professional but so friendly and lovely at the same time. My sister also got her wedding dress from Bride to Be and I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for their perfect dress. My wedding is in less than 2 weeks and I'm so excited for everyone to see me in my dress, but most importantly my fiance! Thank you so, so much everyone - I'll definitely send some pictures over aftwards!

I loved my appointment today. Carla was fantastic at putting me at ease and still making the appointment feel special even in these strange times! I know under ‘normal‘ circumstances, we would be able to browse the dresses but I liked being able to describe the style or elements of dresses that I liked and Carla coming back with something that fitted those elements and then discussing each dress to find the next dress to look at. I am pleased that Carla suggested trying something a little bit different for the dress style, as it turns out she was completely right!

Many thanks again for yesterday! My mom and I couldn’t have been more pleased with costumer service ! Especially with it being my first bridal shopping experience it was nothing short of fabulous. In addition I learnt how to hold a bouquet properly which was a bonus . Truly pleased and couldn’t have asked for a better experience from both ladies .

I brought my dress from Bride to be today and it was such a lovely experience from start to finish. Javaid was extremely helpful and made my Mum and I feel at home. He knew what would suit me before I even put a dress on and he certainly knows how to make you feel special. Thank you Javaid and all at Bride to be!!!

I was extremely nervous being a plus size bride but I was made to feel amazing and total at ease. It’s such a different experience wearing masks but at no point did I feel like I wasn’t getting the bridal experience.

Yesterday was my first time dress shopping and with covid and the new measures I was incredibly nervous about how the consultation would go. The staff at Bride to Be were extremely welcoming, attentive and friendly. Despite the new circumstances and only being able to have one person in my entourage the whole atmosphere was incredibly relaxed. I was able to facetime my cousin and maid of honour, which was so encouraged and supported through interaction by my consultant. Nobody missed out on anything, it was just fantastic. I would highly recommend shopping for your dress here. Thank you to the staff for creating such a wonderful environment and allowing the experience to be so personal and special for both myself and my mum. Saying yes to my dress still felt just as special as it would have done before Covid and having to wear masks made no difference.
