I could have spent all day in your shop! It was the nicest experience, and Carla made the whole thing perfect. Having now experienced other wedding dress shops, I now cant help comparing them to Carla's professionalism, knowledge and friendly persona. You guys (especially Carla) made this experience truly unforgettable. I can't rate highly enough. Thank you so much!

The best first experience I could have wished for. No pressure into buying and everyone was so lovely. My mum and I were in the store for an hour and 40mins and they didn't even rush us out. Thank you so much.

After having a negative experience at a previous shop, I can honestly say this was the best experience I have had dress shopping! I really cannot recommend the team enough, they are all amazing and are so good at what they do! As a plus size bride, they made me feel so confident and beautiful in the dresses I tried on! Absolutely loved my experience and couldn’t recommend enough!

Thank you so much for helping me find my dream wedding dress! You were my first bridal shop appointment and I was pretty clueless when I walked in but Olga was patient, kind and so helpful. I had no idea what I was looking for but I felt completely comfortable throughout, had a lot of fun with Olga and my guests and left Bride To Be Reading a very happy girl! Thank you so much!

My first experience of looking for the perfect dress was stress free. I wasn't rushed, and the advice to try on various styles really helped as I tried on dresses I wouldn't have thought of even looking at. Was a fantastic starting point

First time bride was excited but very nervous but soon as I met Carla she was soo out going and made me feel really comfortable very supportive with picking dresses also involved mother and mother in law in the pick of dresses witch made it extra special over all very pleasant experience I would recommend to friends and family to go to Carla at bride to be! Massive thank you Carla and lovely to meet you

Very good and professional experience. Olga was attentive and offered great advice. Could have involved my bridesmaid more by letting her try on a dress or two at the same time instead of having to make another appointment. Male customer also in changing area was a bit off putting but on the whole a very good afternoon

Olga and the team were exceptional. They were patient and helped me work out what I did and didn't like, giving me time and guidance when I wanted it. This was the first place I tried dresses and I ended up going back a week later and saying yes to the dress! I can't thank Olga enough as she chose my dream dress for me and it is perfection.

I can not tell you enough how great my experience in Brides to be was ... honestly from the min I stepped in to when I left was amazing!! The guy helping me was soooo attentive and listened and knew exactly what I liked , what I didn't and how to surprise me !! I tried on so many dresses nothing was too much and I can say that I said "yes to the dress" ... I felt like a real princess - thank you so much for putting me at ease and making me and my mum feel super special

The lady who was helping us was so kind, complimentary and helpful in choosing my dress. Made me feel very comfortable. Very helpful tips and advice. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer experience. I liked that we could browse the whole shops freely and pick which dresses to try on. Didn’t feel pressured or rushed.
Amy from Reading

As someone who has never been married, and whose idea of heaven is just to elope, I was really nervous about the appointment. I found the whole lead up really overwhelming and was convinced I wouldn't find anything to suit me or fit me. I needn't have worried. Javaid is wonderful. Just the kindest, most patient person I've ever met. He knew me and my body shape better than I did and gently encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone. An incredible experience
Kayleigh from Reading

The experience at Bride 2 Be Reading was fantastic, I was really nervous and anxious going in first of all but the lovely staff were very welcoming and friendly and instantly put me at ease. Javaid was very helpful in helping me find my perfect dress, now I can't wait to wear it on my big day! Highly recomend Bride 2 Be to any of my friends/family that are getting married

Olga was a superb aid while I was choosing my dress! Very competent and professional, she dedicated all her attention and efforts to help me chose the right model for me. She always had a constructive opinion and went beyond and above to make myself and my friends spend some magical time. Thank you Olga, for your efforts! A big thank you to the management of the salon for taking great care of their customers on such an important occasion!

Amazing!! Thank you so much for all the help you gave. You really listened and weren't afraid to tell us what you thought best...and I am so glad you did because I have found my perfect dress. You were patient, kind and inputting. Professionalism at its finest. We are thrilled! After picking the dress and sizing it up, you explained the next steps and we never at any point felt pressured. Just fantastic!????

I had a fantastic time during my fitting/appointment at Bride To Be. I had Javaid and he was aaaamazing. It may be daunting for other brides-to-be to have a man assist you with fittings but he was so professional, welcoming, helpful and honest which what you need specially when deciding for the "perfect" wedding dress.

Absolutely loved my experience at Bride To Be, I had no intention of finding a dress on the day but absolutely fell in love with the dress. The team are all super friendly, welcoming and helpful. Everyone made me feel really at ease and Javaid really helped boost my confidence.
Becky from Reading

I had my appointment with Javaid today. I was a nervous wreck to begin with as I’m so self conscious about my figure and didn’t know where to begin! Javaid took time to listen and understand my requirements and immediately made me feel comfortable. He is so knowledgable and gave me ideas of what would suit me best. This was my bridal shop I had visited and I said yes to the dress! I cannot recommend them enough!
