Money Cannot Buy Experience

When I walked into BRIDE by Aster I had already been to a few dress shops, and admittedly was feeling rather deflated! Hannah was an utter breath of fresh air and knows exactly how to make any woman feel a million dollars. All of the dresses were beautiful, and due to the range of sizes that she stocks, it was the first shop where I tried on a dress that actually fit me. All the way through the process Hannah was utterly fantastic! I felt that she was my number one cheerleader and best friend all rolled up in one even though we had just met. The minute that I tried 'Nelly' on, I knew that I had found the dress for me! From that day, the communication from Hannah was brilliant and I was really touched when she messaged me on the Day itself. Honestly, couldn't fault and really think that everyone should go and see Hannah!

The best bridal shop!

We went to a few bridal shops in Surrey and this was far the best. The staff were the loveliest of people and the selection of dresses was by far the best! I managed to find my perfect dress here 馃檪

Hannah is the best at what she does

I had a really enjoyable experience with Hannah and her team to the extent that I cancelled all other dress appointments I had and managed to find my dress on the first visit!

It was during COVID times so there were some restrictions but Hannah let me set up a video link to my bridesmaids for part of the appointment and it did not detract from all of our experiences at all that they were not allowed to be there in person.

She really made both me and my mum feel comfortable with the choices we were making and anticipated questions we would have or just knew what we were thinking the minute we had the dress on. She provided balanced but also insightful feedback that helped you choose instantly whether the dress was right or not and it made for quick work as I think I tried on maybe 20 dresses in about an hour!

It was a fabulous experience from start to finish and it was Hannah's expert outfit building that led to me adding the veil of my dreams to my final look.

I would never hesitate to recommend Hannah to my friends and family and anyone else, as she is the best at what she does.

Everything you could wish for and more!

I met Hannah at a wedding fair years back and have followed her on socials ever since. When it was time to go dress shopping I knew I had to visit her gorgeous bridal boutique in Dorking. The experience truly is so special - from the entire shop to yourself for two hours and the teams undivided attention, the leopard print fluffy slippers, then peg system to select dresses you wanted to try (and there was lots!), it was everything a bride could hope for. Although a small boutique, there鈥檚 so many options, but also not too many that it鈥檚 over whelming or jam packed and impossible to see them on the racks (which I鈥檇 experienced elsewhere). When it came to trying them on Hannah has a great system of letting you step into the dress alone, so there isn鈥檛 any awkwardness or worries if you鈥檙e body conscious. Plus Hannah and the team are so body positive and know their stuff, you can just instantly trust them. I鈥檓 thrilled to say I found my dream dress during my first visit and am beyond excited to wear it - I鈥檓 so in love with it! A huge thank you to Hannah & the team for everything - Cannot recommend Bride by Aster more!!

The BEST Wedding dress shop!!

Where do I start? The beautiful shop setting, with complete privacy? The range of incredible dresses, at such reasonable prices? Or the above and beyond service provided by the fantastic Hannah and her team?
I honestly can't recommend Brides By Aster enough.
No judgment, no rudeness, no upselling.. just a genuine woman who wants to provide you with the best experience when finding your dream dress.
Being a wedding planner myself, I can easily say, Hannahs customer service is absolutely unrivalled and I recommend her to everyone!

I would highly recommend Bride by Aster to anyone choosing their wedding dress.
Hannah and her team go above and beyond to make you feel special and beautiful when choosing your dress. They are genuinely invested in helping you select the most perfect dress for you in the most gentle and caring way.
The dress selection is absolutely stunning and the size range is inclusive which is absolutely wonderful.
I bought my wedding dress from Bride by Aster and I have never felt more beautiful in my life.
