Dress shopping experience as a bridesmaid

I attended a dress appointment at this shop as a bridesmaid and it was a wonderful experience! From the chilled fizz and sweets on arrival, to the kind and accommodating staff, nothing was too much trouble. Charlotte was a delight and made us feel right at home 💜 the collection of dresses was stunning too!

5* plus Abigail’s is a dream

Wow wow wow! What can I say, the experience was everything I thought it would be and more from the start we got the warmest welcome. Charlotte was my consultant and she was amazing, we had a lovely chat before I started to pick some dresses, I told her my love for madi lane and she pulled the best dresses that were madi or similar style.
The dress collection is so beautiful and each dress is so special, we never felt rushed for time once. Charlotte knew me better than I knew myself, she picked me the most stunning dress which I said yes to which was amazing! The whole team made me feel beautiful making such a fuss which made me feel amazing. The prosecco was delicious and the gift bag was a lovely touch full of lovely things, I cannot wait to go and pick my dress up soon and see the team again, best dress shop I’ve ever been to, wish I could do it all over again. For someone who knew about this shop before I was even engaged due to loving a designer they didn’t disappoint and exceeded my high expectations, Thank you to everyone

Dress of my dreams ✨

My whole experience was amazing. Rachel made me feel so comfortable and at ease. We all had the best morning here. I would 100% recommend with confidence. After picking my dress, the communication was fantastic. I was kept in the loop with when my dress would be ready and was able to pick it up. I used one of the recommended seamstresses who was incredible! We also hired the suits from here too!

My dream wedding dress

If you want a dress that makes you feel so confident and gorgeous for the day then go to Abigail's Collection! The instant my eyes saw the dress I chose I was lost for words. I knew without a doubt that I had discovered the dress of my dreams. The delicate lacework and intricate details woven into the fabric showed pure elegance, that truly made me feel like royalty on my big day.
I’ve never worn something that’s fitted my shape so well, I felt so happy on my wedding day and my dress played a big part! The admiring gazes and endless stream of compliments from both family members and friends only further solidified my belief that this dress was the definition of perfection.
I am eternally grateful to the remarkable Charlotte, Abi and the entire team at Abigail's Collection. Their unwavering support, guidance, and genuine enthusiasm made the entire dress selection experience an unforgettable journey. From the very first consultation to the final fitting, their attention to detail and dedication to ensuring that I felt like the most important bride in the world were truly heartwarming.
In fact, the bridal appointments with Charlotte and the team were one of the most cherished aspects of my wedding preparations. Their warm smiles, insightful advice, and willingness to go above and beyond to make my dreams come true made the process not just stress-free, but an outright joy. The feeling of being pampered and cared for was so precious, and massively contributed to the overall magic of my wedding planning journey.
Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Abigail's Collection to anyone embarking on the exciting journey of selecting their wedding attire. If you want an experience that is both luxurious and unforgettable, this is the place to be. Trust me, if you want to feel like an absolute queen and ensure that your wedding day radiates with an extra layer of enchantment, you owe it to yourself to visit Abigail's Collection. The memories you create and the dress you choose will forever hold a special place in your heart, just as they do in mine.
Thank you to everyone at the Abigail’s collection Team ~ Mrs Lesurf

Simply the best

I had the best experience with Abigails. As a plus size bride I was so worried but I never even thought about my size when I was there. They made me feel so special and helped me find the dress and my veil. I felt like a princess on my wedding day!
