Helen, Claire & Vicky were so lovely. Helen and Claire were so attentive and kind. They were very helpful and gave you honest opinions, which I really appreciated. Helen was extremely informative of the process when we arrived and she explained about the service afterwards with regards to my dress. It was so helpful and I felt all of my questions were answered and more. It's such a lovely shop inside and really spacious when you are trying the dresses on. Helen and Claire were both very accommodating. Garstang is my hometown so I'm really thrilled I found my dress here. Thanks again to you all. What a brilliant service.

Brilliant service, felt comfortable as soon as I walked in, tried on many dresses in different shapes and styles and didn’t feel rushed either which is always an advantage. Thank you and see you both again soon ??

Amazing!! First bridal shop I had visited and ended up buying the first dress I tried on. All the ladies could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble, didnt matter how many dresses I'd picked out to try, they were so patient with me! And I really appreciated their input and opinions. Loved my experience, thank you so much!

The minuet I walked through the door I was looked after, I tried on many different dress’s and narrowed my selections down to 1 in this shop. They staff were happy to help and advise without pushing anything on me.

I was a bit nervous before coming for my first appointment as I didn't know what to expect. Myself, my mum and my sister were made to feel incredibly welcome by Claire and the owner. The shop was comfortable and cosy. The dress fitting was quite intimate yet I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout. Claire was professional, friendly and personable. Although the dress I loved was out of my budget, thank you for making my first appointment such a positive one. I will definitely be recommending you to friends.

Thank you ladies

I had the most amazing visit to the dressing room last Wednesday with my mother and mother in law to be. I was assisted by Claire and Helen to try on various dresses. They were so helpful and really made me feel comfortable in saying what I liked and disliked about the dresses I tried on. We all felt relaxed and very excited about the experience, we loved my appointment. Thank you.
Kirsteen Clarvis from CARNFORTH
on 20/07/2018
Thank you so much!!! I had been dress shopping before somewhere else and had left feeling disappointed, I didn't feel like I was given time and was pressured to say what I liked and almost felt I had to make a decision there and then, I came to your shop and instantly had a very different experience, I felt welcomed and the staff were so excited, I made an appointment for dress trying, again we were welcomed and the staff were amazing, I didn't know what I wanted, I picked out some dresses and we started trying, the staff preserved dignity by waiting till I was half in a dress before coming to help do it up, I really liked that. As we moved through dresses they listened to what I liked and didn't and I never felt bad for saying I didn't like it, after several dresses the staff picked out 'the one' I knew as soon as I had it on that it was right but. The staff still have me plenty of time to look at it making sure that they clipped it to show what it would look like what correctly fitted, they really ensured I was getting the dress that's was for me they didn't try and sell me the most expensive they really cared it was the right one, I found it a very exciting experience and felt very special, I would recommend you guys to anyone, thank you so much can't wait to come back for the next fitting. Thank you

Wow what an amazing day I had yesterday. After becoming quite despondent after visiting other bridal shops all that changed after walking through the door of The Dressing Room and meeting Claire. Claire was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable, putting me at ease straight away. Buy the end of my appointment I had found my dream gown and said yes to the dress. Can't wait for my wedding next April. Thank you so much.

Had an amazing experience yesterday at the Dressing Room Garstang, it was very relaxed and there was no rush in trying lots of dresses on. Each dress I tried on i was given the right accessories to complete the look so I could see it in all its glory and whether it suited me. I have found one dress which I loved and arrange a follow up appointment with the rest of my bridal party to see! Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking as it was a lovely experience!

I visited the store feeling extremely nervous about what I may be walking into, as soon as we walked into the shop we were immediately put at ease by Claire! Chairs were set out for the number of us, iced water ready in this heat and such a friendly welcome. Luckily we think we've found THE dress but Claire was still very patient with us trying on lots of different dresses as well! I couldn't fault the experience and couldn't ask for anyone better to have been involved in the process of finding my perfect dress! Thank you to Claire & Cathy!

I felt so welcomed and special, as did my bridal party. I had no idea of what I wanted when entering the shop but I was made to be put at ease and was given plenty of choice and help to choose my perfect dress. I can’t wait for my next appointment :)

First bridal shop visited and to try dresses on. I felt very special and Clare was so attentive and helpful, and put my mum and myself at ease straight away. Clare explained things clearly and we came away very happy with the service, hoping to come back for a second appointment to try more dresses on and decide on "The One".

Amazing. What can I say. Claire was friendly and helpful and knew even though the first dress I tried on was the right one that I needed to try on other styles to make sure that I was 100% sure and I was. I couldn't be happier. Thank you for your help and understanding. I can't wait for the big day. Xxx

Had a brilliant shopping experience at The Dressing Room, there's so much choice my mum and myself were blown away with the gorgeous gowns you had to offer. Claire was wonderful with me and offered great advice and made me feel so relaxed and for that I enjoyed every single minute. So thrilled that I've bought my dream dress from you. Even loved the decor of the boutique and how it was set out, very private in the changing room which I loved. It was an experience I'll never forget.

It was such a wonderful experience visiting the Dressing Room, such gorgeous gowns, I really felt like a princess for the whole time I was there. Claire made me feel very comfortable and special, I didn't feel rushed at all. I didn't purchase a dress because I wanted to have a think about it but I will definitely make an appointment to visit Claire again now that I know a bit more what I want.

I would like to thank you both for such a wonderful first “dress shopping” experience. From the moment we arrived in the shop to the time we left, we were made to feel so welcome and Cathy was so lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. I really hope to revisit the shop in the future and hopefully find “the one”. Such an amazing experience and worlds apart from the two appointments I had later in the day at different bridal shops!!

This was a truly a wonderful experience. Cathy and the team are so welcoming and really make you feel at ease. They really take their time with you, and make you feel so special. I would highly recommend making an appointment to see them. I found my dream dress thanks to Cathy and the whole team made me feel so confident. I left feeling so good about myself and finding the one. I can't wait for my beautiful dress to arrive. Thanks so much.

Thank you for a lovely dress shopping experience from a very genuine kind and professional lady. Claire was very helpful and knew her wedding stuff! I tried on a number of dresses but unfortunately I did not find one I fell in love with. I have since found “the dress” elsewhere, however had your shop had this particular dress in stock I would not have hesitated to purchase. Would certainly recommend to friends who are looking for their dress. Thanks again

As this was my first dress appointment I was a little apprehensive and nervous but as soon as I stepped in your beautiful shop, the nervous quickly went away. The lady who helped me was so patient, listened to the styles I was thinking of and made me feel totally at ease. I was made to feel so comfortable and not rushed at all. Thank you very much for a lovely appointment.
