Lovely dresses bad organisation
I had a wedding dress, bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I would advise anyone going here that when they buy a dress to pay for it there and then and take it there and then. Dresses they have are lovely and priced well, but when it comes to their organisation of ordering in a dress (they ordered my one wrong three times) they are a shambles, I chose another dress in the end a few weeks before the wedding day and took it there and then and sorted out the alterations with someone else because they still hadnt got it right 4 weeks before (july 2014 when my wedding was due and I ordered it in October 2013!!!) They booked in fittings for bridesmaids and would arrange for them to be down their shop, only to be told the dresses still werent ready over and over, so completely embarrassed by these people asking my bridesmaids to go there for no reason, and wasnt told at all not to take them down there as they all still werent ready, 4 days before they were still not finished and in the end we had to take them all as they were and privately get them altered (2 days before). They asked me to pick the flower girls dresses, which i did, they came back looking nothing like what I picked, they were basic white organza dresses with a sash! Their alterations werent ever right either and we also had to ask the other seamstress we got to alter them too 2 days before. Buy if the price is good and take it that day, get alterations and fittings somewhere else! Weddings are stressful enough without people doing this to you. Luckily it turned out ok thanks to the seamstress who helped us out in the end!

We ordered a prom dress (and paid in cash straight away because they asked) after trying it on in the shop, but wanted a different colour and made into a one-shoulder which we were told could be done. The dress took 10 weeks to come back and when we went down they had ordered another halter-neck dress in a slightly different shade!! But we were again told it could be altered to what we wanted. Waited another 4 wks then went down to try on but NO ALTERATIONS had been done!! Waited another 2 weeks, phoned them and told them I would be down to get dress and had someone to do the alterations. Couldn't return or complain because we were 2wks away from prom and was afraid we wouldn't get a replacement so had to make do. The seamstress we found did an amazing job changing and altering the dress into a one-shoulder plus I had to order extra material from China as this is where the dress came from, it was ok but NOT UK shop standard. Had I known if was coming from China I would have saved myself some money and ordered from there myself... Would never shop there again.

Bridesmade dress ordered February or March , wedding next week deposit paid only to find that instead of turquoise -red or fuchsia came in!! So all chairs covers table cloths, napkins, flowers', ties, favours, table decorations, invites and cake made to turquoise means nothing . I know a deposit has been refunded which is very charitable of the so called business be couse the customer was rude to the assistant! And who wouldn't be. What is the bride supposed to do now, with 10 days to go?. The reviews are not good that I have seen,I will be watching for more reviews on this subject. Not a business to be recommended when mistakes like this happen! A very upset sister of the bride

My daughter was given her dress 4 days before her wedding and she was extremely stressed but hid it well because she didn't think she would get her dress out of the shop. We finished sewing what had not been done as promised. I had to have another back panel made because the one provided was too small and the inside strap to tighten the dress was hanging on a thread. They had the cheek to double charge me. Such a bad attitude and poor service.

We ordered a prom dress on 8th of april,they finally said they could not supply at beginning of june.After a lot of asking for a refund they gave me a cheque for £125 and bounced. I contacted trading standards I was told they breached their contract and should have refunded the way it was paid(debit card) I found out they are trading under another name around the corner selling tacky wedding dresses for £99. Please be carefull giving this company ANY deposit, I didn't even get an apology,that says it all

Wedding dress so far
I'm in the process of getting two wedding dresses for my big day but at the moment I'm having difficulty and my dress hasn't even been fitted to me yet, we have been mislead and it seems now we are gonna have to wear a dress that smells like old cigarettes n are scared that the fitting and alterations tha we where promises free of charge are not gonna be to a high standard..... Not only have we had miss communication we ave also been pestered to pay full amount ASAP even though we had a prearranged date set out.... This is not looking good so far will give an update once the fittings and alterations have been confirmed
