April was great, she knew what would suit my body shape, was encouraging but not pushy, and made the experience thoroughly enjoyable!

I said YES to the dress!!! And I couldn't have done it without the amazing April helping and guiding me through my consultation. Her years of experience, knowledge and beautiful nature was a real asset and made the whole experience (which I was feeling quite overwhelmed with amongst all the excitement) so enjoyable and memorable! Thankyou for making us all feel so welcome and making it an afternoon to remember!!! Grateful thanks - bring on my special day in my stunning wedding dress! :)

I had an amazing experience at Wilkins Bridal. It was my first time trying on wedding dresses and being a shy tomboy I was quite nervous, not expecting to like many dresses. I was put at ease straight away as soon as I met April. She was so helpful and I found it really easy to just be myself around her. I ended up having the opposite problem to what I was expecting and liked pretty much all of the dresses I tried on and felt really confident which is rare for me. April brought me so many options to figure out which style I liked and knew how to clip/pin them perfectly to make them fit. She definitely knows her stuff and I feel like she would be able to find the dream dress for any shape or size! Could not recommend this place more :)

I was so worried about nothing fitting me or feeling insecure or just hating my entire experience. It was completely the opposite. Shailo was so lovely and accommodating, made me feel comfortable and answered any queries we had.

Super helpful! Lots of variety, and got to try on a range of dresses. 1.5hours was a perfect amount of time. My assistant was very caring and certainly knew her stuff but I didn't feel pressured in any direction. Loved that my team of girls felt part of the process also, they were encouraged to pick out dresses and feel the fabrics and give their opinions. Great fun.

My time at Wilkins Bridal was amazing - I felt so comfortable and in an environment I could express my likes and dislikes which lead me to finding the perfect dress! The girls were professional, helpful and kind all at once. They also had such a big range of dresses and I would highly recommend Wilkins Bridal to any future bride wanting to find the dress ??

April was phenomenal. Wilkin's atmosphere is warm, inviting, and fun! This was my second experience trying on dresses and I was nervous to go back a second time. April was able to read how I was feeling in regards to style and design and honest about what she thought, allowing me to narrow down choices. I am excited to purchase a gown from Wilkins and continue to work with them up until my wedding. I would highly recommend Wilkins to all brides. Thank you for creating such a nice experience!

April was absolutely amazing and although I only had a sale appointment she went out of her way to show me as many dresses as possible in the time we had. She listened and gave feedback as well as asking questions about the wedding and how we met (a nice personal touch). As we were leaving town the next morning, April let me pop in and try a dress on again which I really appreciated. I'm happy to say I said yes to the dress! Overall it was a great experience and I was made to feel comfortable every step of the way. Cannot recommend April highly enough, she went above and beyond to make the experience so special. I can't wait to wear my beautiful dress ??

Thank you so much for having me in. It was such an enjoyable experience. It was extremely hot on the day. I appreciate being offered water if needed and having the fan on in the dressing room. Possibly some AC might be handy for days like that. But, still I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Thank you so much ??

My friend and I had a double appointment to try on dresses for the first time. April was an absolute delight, she wowed us with her choices for our dresses and encouraged us to try on lots of different styles, but listened to all of our likes and dislikes. I felt heard, and really encouraged to enjoy the process. I would recommend making an appointment to Wilkins to anyone who asks!

Trying on dresses here was so fun! They have a good range of dresses and April picked out some great dresses for me to try on. She also took heaps of photos and videos of the dresses which is very useful to look back on.

Had a lovely morning picking out my wedding dress. April did an amazing job at selecting dresses to suit my body shape. Was a massive confidence boost! To top off a brilliant experience, I found my dress!! Something I didn’t think would happen at my first appointment. So thank you April, you were fantastic!

Absolutely lovely staff, made me feel incredibly relaxed and valued. Went in with a clean slate no really knowing what I'd go for and what I'd suit and ending up narrowing it down to a couple of dresses ready for the big decision. Cannot recommend enough
