Laura Hewett from Laura May Bridal Outlet
Abbie was so incredibly helpful and clearly very knowledgeable. She kept the appointment running smoothly and really helped me to get a good understanding of what was right for me. Amazing experience and a massive thank you to her!
Leanne from Cardiff
I brought my first wedding dress at the main store and then I brought my second at the outlet. Both times I’ve had the privilege of having Abbie as my consultant and I absolutely adore her. She’s so amazing at her job. She’s always made me feel so relaxed and at ease. She always listens to you and what you want and made the most amazing dress suggestions off of this. She’s been such an important part of my wedding experience and I just feel so lucky to have her as my consultant for both dresses!! It’s just an amazing warm and welcoming place, and I feel so lucky to call myself a Laura May Bride!!
The best day! from Crwys road
We were a rowdy group of excited women - probably really annoying to work with - but the lovely ladies at Laura may bridal outlet were so amazing and patient and made me feel SO special. We also had such a laugh with them. I said YES to the most perfect DRESS! WOOOO! my dress was thousands of pounds reduced to £500 and it was gorgeous. Thanks so much Laura May Bridal!!! I cannot wait to get married in it.
Abbey Gullick from Machen
For someone who was dreading the day and hates all eyes on me, Kellie Anne put me right at ease! She was friendly, knowledgable and went above and beyond at making me feel comfortable! I’m in love with my dress!!!
Georgia Jones from Swansea
I have never had such a positive shopping experience ever. As a plus size girl, I always dread having to try things on. The ladies at LMB could not have made me feel more beautiful or confident if they tried! The service has been impeccable. I was assisted by Kellie-Anne who was brilliant; she has so much knowledge which made me feel so confident. I cannot wait to show everyone my beautiful dress, and am very grateful to LMB for making wedding dress shopping such a treasured memory!
Clare from Pontypridd
Honestly, Sophie was amazing. Trying on clothes in front of people is not my natural habitat but she made me feel very comfortable. I loved 2 of the dresses but my indecisive brain wouldn’t allow me to say yes to the dress. I would definitely recommend the shop. It’s a lovely environment and Sophie couldn’t do enough for us.
Katie from Brighton
I had the absolute best day picking my dress yesterday - I didn’t expect to come away with a dress at all, just to narrow down my choices but May was so amazing at finding me my dream dress and veil. I couldn’t fault my experience at all thank you so so much!!
Gemma from Crwys Road
Tash was great, made us all feel really comfortable and relaxed throughout our visit. Tash made a special experience very memorable! Thank you so much x
Lucy from East Yorkshire
Laura May Bridal quite literally offered the perfect wedding dress shopping experience. Every member of staff was warm and friendly and made the appointment magic. We had Abbie and she couldn’t have been any more incredible. I was really overwhelmed having just come from a store that had beautiful dresses but a hard sell attitude and it left me feeling quite stressed. Abbie listened so carefully to what I wanted, which quite honestly was a fairly scattered selection of ideas. The dresses she came back with were a true reflection of how much she understood what I’d said, but how amazing she is at her job. There was zero pressure but just pure joy and helpful comments to help me navigate choices. Having found the perfect dress, a few months later I had a complete panic about my choice and returned to the shop, and to Abbie’s careful guidance. We pinned the dress I had ordered to give the desired effect of what alterations would achieve and I couldn’t have felt happier. These few changes made all the difference and I knew that the dress was absolutely the right choice it just needed a few personal touches to make it more me. Abbie’s help was more like asking your best friend to help fix a problem and nothing was too much trouble. Despite the store having an insane number of dresses, and multiple rooms to have your appointment the personal touch isn’t lost at all. Thank you to all the team, and particularly Abbie. You’re amazing. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
Alice Byford from Cheltenham
I visited Laura May Bridal yesterday with my mum, mother in law to be and three best friends (my bridesmaids.) I booked a luxury appointment and Abbie had 6 glasses of prosecco and a selection of yummy treats waiting for us when we arrived. I felt so special and everyone was so excited. I had filled out a questionnaire before arriving at the appointment, which helped Abbie understand the styles I liked. Abbie then selected 3 dresses from the shop floor at a time for me to try on and methodically helped me to eliminate styles I didn't like. I LOVED this approach because by the end of the appointment I was so confident that I knew exactly what I liked vs. what I didn't and felt we had left no stone unturned so I would never think 'what if.' By the end of the appointment I knew I had found my dress. It was the first dress I tried on, and LMB was the first shop I went to. At the end of the session Abbie suggested we play my wedding entrance song, and revealed me in my dress to the group from behind the curtains. Everyone, including me, were in tears. It was then that I said with absolute certainty- YES TO THE DRESS. One of the best days I have ever had. Thank you so much to Abbie for making it fun and so incredibly special. You are amazing at what you do and its a day I will never forget. Alice x
Katie Rowlands from Crwys Road
I loved my time at your bridal shop. Louise was so lovely and patient. I really appreciated her helping me find the perfect dress!
Melissa storey from Somerset
I had my first wedding dress appointment booked in at the Laura May bridal outlet after finding them on Instagram and falling in love with the vibe I got from their content and feed. We were met by Sophie who was just absolutely amazing. I instantly felt comfortable around her and she made sure that my bridal party felt comfortable as well. We were offered Teas and coffee, and of course a cheeky Prosecco which we all enjoyed toasting to when I said YES to the dress! The experience from start to finish was wonderful and everything I had dreamt of when it came to starting the search for my dream dress. I couldn’t fault Sophie at all! Laura May bridal are very lucky to have her. X
Kelly from Neath
I was so nervous for my first bridal appointment but as soon as I stepped foot into Laura may bridal I was completely at ease. Everyone’s so lovely & welcoming! I was served by Emily & she made me feel so comfortable. She couldn’t help enough & put up with me being so indecisive! The bridal shop is absolutely beautiful as well. Overall it was an amazing day & I loved every minute of it!
Laura Gough from Cardiff
I booked into Laura May with a particular interest in the Jesus Peiro collection in store and the range was impeccable. Deep down I always knew I was destined to be a JP bride and I was so excited by every dress available. Kellie-Anne was sensational! She was so warm and welcoming, and completely understood my vision. Her knowledge of Jesus Peiro was exceptional and her creative approach was exactly what I was hoping for in a consultant. She guided me to try on some styles I’d previously dismissed and I actually ended up saying yes to “wild-card” on Kellie-Anne’s recommendation! I left Laura May with a huge increase in self-confidence, and this was really down to the positivity and excitement that Kellie-Anne brought to my appointments. I thought I’d find a dress that I loved, but never knew I could find myself feeling so beautiful. Thank you so much for this incredible memorable experience ??
Rosie Warren from Morgan Arcade
I came in feeling slightly nervous and unsure how I was going to feel about the whole process. I ended up having the most positive time, feeling completely at ease with Kellie Anne, she made me feel super confident and expertly guided me to find my dream dress! All in all, an amazing experience and I couldn’t recommend Kellie Anne more she was incredible!
Absolutely incredible experience in Laura May Bridal, on Saturday. Amy and the team tailored the dress to my needs and made sure that all of my friends and family had a great time. I couldn't have found a nicer dress and accessory, and would like to thank you all for helping me feel special. Thanks, Ari
Caitlin Gallagher from Cardiff
I had two fantastic visits to Laura May Bridal to find my dream dress! Mabel and Laura were my bridal consultants, both were amazing and made me feel so comfortable and calm. My family and I were welcomed with a big smile. All the staff are friendly and helpful! Would recommend anyone looking for the best wedding dress experience :)
Amy Savory from Dublin
The best experience out of all the bridal shops I visited. I went to a couple of other bridal shops but this experience stood out not just because of the stunning and large dress selection but from the amazing customer service from everyone. I went to Laura May x4 and every experience was outstanding. All the ladies are passionate, knowledgeable and outstanding at what they do. Thank you for such a wonderful experience and some delicious cakes!
Hannah Cox from Minehead
Beyond expectations, really amazing morning, Paige was amazing. Can’t wait to come back
Charlotte Havard-Smith from Laura may bridal outlet
I had such a lovely appointment at Laura May Bridal Outlet. Abbie welcomed us all into the shop and made me feel so comfortable whilst trying on amazing dresses! I didnt have a clue what I was looking for and she supported me in trying on different styles and really helped when I was stuck between three at the end. It was such a magical day and I cannot wait to wear my beautiful dress.
I cannot thank Emily and the LMB team enough for the experience we had this weekend. I am very much not a "shopper" and the thought of finding that one special dress everyone talks about was so daunting. Before we went to the main store, we also had an appointment with Sophie at the outlet - Sophie sent some info to Emily between our appointments, and using that info and what I'd shared about my ideas, Emily brought me around 6 absolutely gorgeous dresses. Her attention to detail, kindness and care gave me and my Mam such an amazing day. I tried on so many gorgeous dresses and I said YES to the perfect dress. Emily, we honestly cannot thank or praise you enough for how brilliant you made our experience. I'm so excited to come and collect my dress in a few months time and will forever be grateful for the memories we made yesterday! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!
Julia from Cardiff
Sophie was absolutely amazing! I told her my likes and dislikes and she immediately picked out exactly what I wanted. She was also brilliant at asking if I wanted to try things which were a bit different to what I had in mind, which was really useful. The dresses in the shop were all excellent quality and Sophie’s fab attitude meant my bridesmaid and I had the best time. Thank you so much for finding me my dream dress!
I had my appointment yesterday at the outlet with Abbie and she and the whole experience was wonderful. I had always wanted to go to Laura May Bridal and am so excited to now officially be a Laura May Bride! From start to finish Abbie was so attentive and helpful and she found me dresses that I loved (which made the final decision so hard) but was so nice to have so much choice! She listened to what I did and didn’t like and took it all into account, I felt like I had the full dress shoppping experience that I had always wanted! Thank you Abbie
Stephanie from Outlet
Abbie was fab! She listened to everything I liked in the dresses I tried on and managed to pick out a dress that had everything I wanted. Very happy! And we loved the whole shopping experience, it did not feel like an outlet at all
Tania from Laura May Bridal Outlet Cardiff
I was feeling a little deflated heading into my appointment at the Laura May Bridal outlet due to being left disappointed at another bridal shop, but Kellie was amazing. She could see my style and vision straight away - she gave honest advice when I asked for it to ensure I found the One and I DID!! Thank you Kellie for being so fabulous and wonderful. I cannot wait to wear my dress ??
Lydia C from Cardiff
I found my dream dress at Laura May Bride Outlet and an amazing cape to wear too at the main shop. Both stores are gorgeous, all the staff were friendly and helpful, and the dresses were stunning and I had plenty of choice, which was a relief as a size 16/18. Me and my bridal party felt like VIPs. I can’t put into words how brilliant Abbi was, she listened to everything I did and didn’t like and pulled dresses that I wouldn’t have thought of that I ended up loving. There’s was never any pressure to purchase anything and nothing was too much trouble. Now I just have to wait until my wedding so I can put on my amazing dress and cape combo again! ??
Beth from Main Store & Outlet
Both Bridal consultants were fab, Kelly in main store and Sophie in the outlet! They made me feel very comfortable and were both very knowledgable on the stock! Big thanks to both xx
charlotte williams from Liverpool
We had an absolutely lovely time trying on dresses for my wedding. Kellie was amazing, so patient and observant. She also made me feel super comfortable! Could not recommend enough.
Janthia Morgan from Bridgend
From the moment i stepped into your outlet store I felt completely at ease. It was my first time looking for my wedding dress so I was a little anxious. Sophie was so welcoming, the little touches of having my name on the welcome board made it feel really special. I had a very clear image of what I wanted and struggled to fall in love with any single dress. Sophie listened to every single comment I made and quickly identified I was particularly drawn to a specific designer. Her patience, listening and attention to detail took a dress i liked to a dress i loved with an added touch at her recommendation. I said yes to the dress and am totally in love with it. Sophie thank you, you were amazing from start to finish and made my wedding dress shopping experience one I will always remember.
Jodie Ball from Morgan’s arcade
A day I will never forget. From the little touches in the room- cakes, names on board and having your own individual room. It was an experience I will never forget, May honestly made it so special for myself and my family and was so patient with me, not rushing, giving me endless dresses to try on and giving her expert opinion. It was honestly magical.
Rachael Haining from Cardiff
I genuinely can't put into words how amazing my experience was at Laura May Bridal. Laura was the perfect stylist and I had complete confidence in her. Her professionalism was first class but at the same time she brought an air of calm to what could easily have be an overwhelming experience. And of course she did find my dream dress, I cannot thank her enough. All the staff we met were so friendly and there genuinely was such a buzz in the shop. The staff at Laura May go the extra mile and make you feel like a VIP. I can't stopping smiling and cannot wait to see my gorgeous dress again! Looking forward to my next visit ??
Jamie Lee Corcoran from Cardiff
Staff were friendly and welcoming right from the beginning. So much thought and effort went into the room for trying on dresses. Georgie was absolutely fantastic and made the whole process relaxing and enjoyable!

I had my first ever bridal appointment and I was with Abbie, what an amazing, loving, and caring woman! We got on so well and she made me feel so comfortable in every dress. Thank you for an amazing first appointment Abbie!
Beth from Cardiff
Mabel was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She was so personal, fun and caring. She made me so comfortable as if I were with a friend. I couldn’t recommend Laura May bridal more!
Nicola W from Cardiff
The whole dress shopping experience was wonderful, the staff were friendly and couldn’t do more to help, I was lucky enough to visit both the boutique and the Outlet. I found ‘the one’ in the Outlet and I’m very happy. Thank you so much for all your suggestions and help throughout the process.
I had the best afternoon saying yes to the dress. Katie was so friendly and helped me choose my perfect dress. Thank you again!

Had the best experience choosing my wedding dress. Kelly was fab, nothing was too much to ask and definitely made my experience.
Cloe Theobald from Cardiff
My experience at Laura May was truly amazing, I would highly recommend anyone looking for their perfect dress to go there. I explained what I liked and Laura said she had the perfect dress for me, and WOW she sure did! The rooms are big, very warm and welcome, there are hundreds of dresses, you are spoiled for choice! The staff are amazing, thank you all so much, I really can’t thank you enough and I said yes to my dress!
Katie Mitchell from Laura May Bridal Outlet
I had the most wonderful experience with Louise at Laura May Bridal Outlet. There was a lovely selection of dresses in all style and Louise helped get rid of my nerves by being super helpful. I can’t believe I found my wedding dress!
Erica Lloyd from Bridgend
I had the most wonderful experience at Laura May , from the first appointment to choose my dress to collecting my dress, I must admit being an older bride I was not sure I would walk out with anything that I would feel comfortable in. How wrong I was! Abbie helped me try on the dresses I picked out, but they did not feel right. I then put the one that Abbie out for me and that was it, I absolutely loved it and can’t believe how good I felt. Thank you so much Abbie and the wonderful girls at Laura May for making a very nervous lady feel very happy xx
Jessie from Cirencester
I came to Laura May Bridal Outlet after a less than desirable first experience wedding dress shopping and was welcomed by the lovely Sophie. She was amazing at helping suggest dresses that I may like but also just letting me try on the things I loved the look of. She made my experience and definitely deserves to be recognised for her service. It was like shopping with a best friend! Thank you so much for helping me find my dream dress Sophie! I can’t wait to wear it!
Nia Griffiths from Swansea
I had a great experience at Laura May. The shop is so big and is gorgeous - we were in the Amber room and it was really comfy. Victoria was so wonderful and helpful. She made the experience so fun and was really understanding of what dress style I liked and made sure I was comfortable the whole time.
Hannah from Morgan’s arcade
What an experience. Not only is the shop absolutely beautiful and a dream, so are the staff! Emily made me feel so at ease and made the day I’ve dreamt of since I was a little girl an absolute dream. They make the whole process feel so exciting!!
Hayley Lewis from Ceredigion
I was so nervous arriving at Laura may bridal, but soon felt at ease by the lovely ladies that work there. Everyone was so accommodating and so lovely! I never thought I was going to leave with a dress on my first trail of dresses, but soon found the dress of my dreams, all thanks to Laura may bridal team! I can’t thank the team enough! Was an experience better than I imagined and would highly recommend. Great selection of dresses and the team are so professional and have a great eye!
Kelsey from Crwys road
I couldn’t thank Louise enough for helping me find my dream dress! She was absolutely amazing, very patient and helpful! I couldn’t have asked for anymore from her! She really did make my whole experience amazing!
Helen from Stroud
Amazing experience from start to finish. Fabulous selection of dress covering all styles. I found the ONE with the first dress I tried on! Thank you so much xx
Eleri Brown from Cardiff
We came to the store on the 13th of April 2023 for the first time to look at wedding dresses. The service we received was absolutely incredible! Myself, my mum and my sister all had the best morning! I was so glad to find my dream dress and am already counting down the days until I can try it on again! Thank you again for such a special day.
