I had never been wedding dress viewing/shopping before, Jude at Wilkins Bridal made my experience so memorable and amazing. I felt very welcomed and comfortable in the environment. She helped choose dresses that would suit my body and went that extra mile to ensure I found something I loved. As a plus size women I felt extremely looked after and like nothing was a hassle. I ended up finding my dream dress and can only thank Jude for that. Highly recommend

WOW!! What a brilliant and seamless experience. Jude (consultant) was amazing! She was knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable during my appointment. Jude very quickly identified what styles would work for my shape and preferences - within 30mins we had a stand out stunning dress. I was so impressed with how simple and fun Jude made selecting my perfect dress. I would highly recommend any bride-to-be, to visit the team at Wilkins Bridal.

My mum and I had a wonderful time at Wilkins Bridal. The team were helpful and knowledgeable, they could answer all the questions we had. There was great selection of dresses to choose from and I was lucky enough to find the perfect dress with some slight alterations which they were also able to do.

Thank you for making today such a fun and stress free experience. As a plus size woman I was terrified about trying on wedding dresses. Not once was I made to feel less than beautiful and worthy. No questions about shredding for the dress or anything like that. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Arrival was great, we were greeted as soon as we walked in. The flow from arrival up to trying on dresses was very smooth and easy. The lady who was helping us was very informative about each dress and which one she liked on me as well as offering little tips on accessories and shoes which was very helpful!

I had the most incredible shopping experience on Saturday. Your range of gowns were fantastic BUT the experience and eye of your consultant is what absolutely blew us away. I believe she knew exactly what dress what be perfect but showed me lots of different styles and fabric choices before she pulled out the perfect one! It was exactly what I needed and boosted my confidence instantly. Would highly recommend for every bride to be!

100% best experience and best store... Recommend this store to every bride... After an awful experience with my car 5 minutes before my appointment... After I walked in the door I felt welcomed and supported... Everyone was so helpful and beautiful vibes within the store.... Beautiful range of dresses as a curvy bride I was able to still try on so many dresses till I found the ONE.... Making me feel like a princess this shop is the best part of my wedding planning to date... Xx

I was extremely nervous at the start. However the lady was awesome. Very helpful without being pushy. As the last appointment on a long Saturday, she was still cheerful, polite and interested in my dress choice. Professionally made each dress fit as much as possible. Would definitely recommend to any bride.

I had such a great experience at Wilkins Bridal. Immediately felt comfortable with my consultant April and also was in great hands with a young girl in training. April encouraged myself and my two friends to browse the selection of gowns and after a chat with me when I first got there she was able to pull several beautiful dresses for me to try on. She was super knowledgeable, so helpful and encouraging and helped me to narrow it down to exactly what I want after. Highly recommend for any bride!

Such a great experience with April and a wee touch from Jude. I managed to narrow down to 3 dresses on the first appointment. No pressure or hurry trying on dresses. Loved it for a first experience trying on wedding dresses.

We had a lovely morning at Wilkins Bridal! April was so lovely and listened to what I wanted but also used her experience to pick out dresses that she thought would suit me! I absolutely loved that as I found it very difficult picking dresses from the hanger. In the end I picked out a dress I found online but I definitely recommend April and Wilkins Bridal! They take there time and let you try on as many dresses as you can within the timeframe. Love!

I had an amazing experience at Wilkins. There were so many options to choose from and April was so helpful in picking styles that suited my body. She also listened to me and what I wanted and was team bride the whole way. I was nervous going in but felt so comfortable after trying the first dress on. Couldn’t recommend them anymore just fantastic

We had a great first fitting session. The staff member (Jude?) was very helpful and knew what style would suit my shape. I may not have found the dress for me, but it was great to get to try some dresses on and realize that dresses I would never have looked at, actually looked really good. I’m pleased she made me try things on that I never normally would have. Great friendly atmosphere and service.
