I had such a lovely experience at Prudence Gowns Exeter!! I was very nervous and not particularly looking forward to visiting any bridal shops, as I'd had a not so great experience previously and was all set for my mum to make my wedding dress from a design I pretty much created myself and was convinced no shop would have anything that even would come close! Unfortunately my mum isn't able to finish my dress in time so with only 5 weeks to go, and an ever-growing baby bump, on top of my nerves and apprehension we headed to prudence gowns. Everybody there was lovely, so friendly and normal, you didn't feel they were false, which I'd felt previously in other stores, and I slowly started to feel a little more at ease. Stacy was great with me and really helped me to relax, she brought me some of the gowns which I'd looked at online (which in my situation I also found very helpful, being able to see all the dresses online first) and some she thought I may like. Stacy was very patient with me trying on various styles and not only helped me relax but even helped make the experience fun, which I never thought it would be. With so many beautiful dresses I found two I really liked but still wasn't sure so wanted to look somewhere else which again they were lovely about, and I didn't feel any pressure to choose there and then. I made an appointment for the next day to come back with more family and show them what I had found. Again on the second appointment I wanted more time to decide and try on a dress in another store too and again, Stacy put no pressure on me to decide and even sat on the floor with me while my family finished their drinks. I did of course choose a beautiful prudence gown for my big day and I'm now a happier more relaxed bride to be, with a stunning dress that not only accommodates but even disguises my bump.
I can't thank Stacy enough for all her help and for the experience as a whole. Xx
The shop itself is also beautifully layed out and very clean and as I've said has so many beautiful dresses to choose from, I would definitely recommend a visit!!!
