My experience at Brides in the City was flawless!
The girls are all so clued up and know exactly what they are talking about!
Each and every one of the ladies are so eager to make it an enjoyable experience for you and whoever is with you!
I felt so special both times I visited, firstly picking my dress and secondly when I collected it I was made a big fuss of both times getting pictures taken & showered with drinks to celebrate!

The quality of my dress was absolutely outstanding for the price I paid for it considering I would have spent easily 3/4 times elsewhere! Deborah is like a fairy godmother, making everyday girls dreams come true without a massive price tag! I genuinely felt like a princess on my big day!!!

I dreaded wedding dress shopping and I put it off at every opportunity, until my bridesmaid forced me . I had 6 months to go and went to another bridal shop . Found it very poor selection and barely anything I could choose from. I went to Brides in the City and met the lovely Cara. She went above and beyond and was so wonderful. I loved my shopping experience ! It was fun ! Light hearted and personal. She made me feel at ease and so comfortable. I was able to change anything about any of the dresses which I loved ! I found my dress on the second try . Changed a few things and later returned for the alterations and trying it on. Firstly I had been a few holidays and the dress was a bit snug ! I burst it ! It was sent for repair free of charge and we all laughed so much , a funny memorable story! I finally got to wear my dress on 7th February 2020. I felt incredible in the dress and I wish I could do it all over again. I managed to dance the night away in it all night and I could not bare to take it off. My husband said it took his breath away when he seen me walking down the aisle, said he had never seen such a beautiful wedding dress.

I had been nervous and I wasn't looking forward to dress shopping at all. I'm older and not a size 8 and I'd heard so many other brides who had bad experiences. My beautician who had got married the year before recommended Brides in the City, when I told her how I was dreading it, she said she had a great experience. So I booked an appointment with my 2 bridesmaids. The consultant Catherine explained everything, asked me lots of questions about my style but also left me to have a browse around, to select a few. But it was easy for me, the first dress I seen was what I'd had in my mind (although I'd been to 1 shop before and tried 3 other dresses) when I tried it on I knew this was “the feeling” I had wanted. I finally felt like a bride and hearing my best friends gasp & say ohhh, I knew it was the right one. The consultant Catherine tried out a few different ideas, with belts and veils. She made it so special and was completely honest with what she thought suited me and the dress. I had resigned myself to the fact that I probably wouldn’t enjoy choosing my dress there would be too much pressure to get a sale and they wouldn’t take into account my age and size, but it was the total opposite. We had a great experience so thank u Brides in the City for making me have “that feeling” and making everything so simple and easy.

I was lucky enough to find my dream dress relatively quickly at a well known bridal shop, however shortly after, the company fell into administration and closed. I had no idea what I was going to do with only 8 months until my big day. Thankfully I came across Brides in the City and contacted Deborah to see if she would be able to recreate my dream dress from my pictures, I was so relieved when she said yes. From start to finish the service was outstanding and personal! Deborah and all her team are so friendly, passionate and know exactly what they are talking about. What is so unique about Brides in the City, aside from their customer service, is you can customise any dress from their range; something I hadn't come across in all the shops I had visited beforehand. I absolutely love my dress and it feels really special knowing it's one of a kind. I can't thank Deborah and her team enough for coming to my rescue!

My experience in brides in the city was amazing!! The girls are all so welcoming and we’re able to help me find my dream dress!
As a plus size bride I always had the worry of trying on dresses and the feeling that I would be judged etc but it defo wasn’t like that! Even if the dress didn’t fit there was always a solution to how we could get it to fit and it can be ordered in a bigger size etc.
I had been to a few wedding dress shops on the same day as when I found my dream dress and the experience was just amazing! I can’t thank the girls enough for their support! Also allowing me to come in and try on the dress around 10 times to show my family and close friends etc. Thanks so much for making my dress experience amazing
