    Perfect Dress

    Erica couldn't of been any better. Not only did we design and create my dream dress, but we did all of it in 5 months, due to the pandemic.

    Erica has always been so sweet and kind and goes above and beyond to help anyone.
    She has amazing skills and can design and create you dress, even over a zoom call.

    Even the neighbours kids thought I was Elsa (From Frozen) walking past their house

    Words cannot express how grateful I am to Erica and her team. So thank you so much.

    I will recommend you to everyone I know as your skills are amazing!!!

    Thanks Heather. Thanks for your kind words. Your dress was a dream to work on. I will miss our appointments. It was so lovely to work with you! Keep in touch! X

    Erica Stacey

    I had such a wonderful experience with Erica. I am so glad that I chose her to make my wedding dress. From the moment I met her I felt that I had known her forever, she really put me at my ease. I told her what I wanted and she was so helpful. Her designs were amazing. I used to really look forward to my fittings as she made the experience so special. I would highly recommend Erica to anybody, not only is she talented but also extremely helpful and accommodating. I felt amazing in my dress and would love to do it all again and that is down to Erica.

    Professional, creative and friendly

    Erica was great from design through to the finished dress. She was very professional and friendly, always kept me up to date with how things were going, when the next fitting was. She had great ideas for the dress taking my ideas and making them a reality. I would recommend her to anyone wanting a bespoke wedding dress.

    Vintage dress dream

    I was struggling to find what I wanted in dress shops and was feeling fed up. I contacted Erica and told her my woes and she was an absolute dream to work with. Understanding and helpful, offering ideas and advice and making me feel really postive about my choices and how I was going to look in the dress. When covid and the following regulations struck her communication was fantastic and she was so supportive. We had to change the wedding plans and we changed the style of the dress accordingly, all of which was no trouble for Erica and she made me feel so calm. The finished dress was beautiful, really high quality and unique. I cannot thank her enough and I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to make a unique and personalised outfit for their celebration. Thank you again!

    Erica Stacey Bridalwear's reply:

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with you Sarah. What a gorgeous bride you made and I wish you many years of happiness. I look forward to working with you again next year for your big 1st anniversary celebration! Xxx

    Mrs Melissa Dorosz

    I got married in Cyprus in June 2019 and wanted a Grecian style dress. Erica was amazing to work with she listened to what my vision was for the dress and worked on the sketch and at each stage of the process got in touch for trials and ensured any changes / adjustments would be made until everything was perfect. The process was really easy and she really makes a bride to be feel extremely special couldn't recommend her enough for that special dress!!!
    I felt amazing on the day and really comfortable as the dress was made to my exact measurements - when you have so many things to think about on the big day it was great to know that the dress would be fabulous, also as my wedding was abroad Erica packaged everything so I could take the dress with me as carry on and it was perfect on arrival.

    Thank you again x

    She makes the impossible - possible!

    Erica & I met just three times. The 3rd time was when I collected my dress from her! My job meant we had to liaise on email and calls - sending sketches back and forth. I found it so easy to communicate with her and her patience knows no bounds. I searched for months before I realised my dress was in my head - not a store. She made my dress to my exact specifications and tones (it was not white) and even produced a bespoke, last-minute addition of a jewel-encrusted veil when I changed my mind! I cannot recommend Erica and her team enough. If you're on the fence about having your dress made - my advice is do it. Best decision I ever made. (after the husband) ........ :)

    Erica Stacey Bridalwear's reply:

    Absolutely LOVED making your dress. It was so exciting to make it in such gorgeous colours and as a creative pattern cutter, the pleated bodice was a satisfying pattern to cut and see in reality! X

    Wedding dress of dreams

    Erica Stacey has an incredible ability to turn a vision into reality. I sat with her and described my dream wedding dress, showed her some ideas of inspiration I had picked up Inline- and she combined them all skilfully into an exquisite dress design. The process after that was seamless, her and her team put together the dress and I attended every few months for (one or twice) for fittings until the final piece was complete! Excellent craftsmanship and skill, and Erica can literally make ANY dress to the highest standard. She’s truly talented and amazing.

    Erica Stacey Bridalwear's reply:

    Thanks Fatima! We absolutely loved working with you and absolutely LOVE your photos xxx Hope married life is treating you well! xxx

    Outstanding service from start to end

    I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Erica. From the moment I contacted her I felt comfortable and confident that she would deliver. She listened to my vision and gently assisted with her professional experience, advising me on the finer details. The dress was perfect. The quality is beautiful and the attention to detail. The dress was so versatile, we went for a two piece dress that which was perfect for our destination wedding. I had two different style tops to go with the skirt which was lovely to change from a day to night time look. I was able to remove the train when I wanted for dancing and it was so changeable and fresh. Everybody commented on the dress and how stunning it was. She brought the vision to life and I felt so special. Every bride should feel this way. Thank you Erica x

    Excellent service, quality and experience — couldn’t be happier with my wedding dress

    Erica was amazing from the start. She is warm, bubbly and an absolute professional. She helped me tailor my idea to my body shape and budget. She really listened to me and made sure I was happy with the design at every step of the the process. It was a pleasure getting my wedding dress made by her. The detail was outstanding. It took all the stress out of choosing a dress and I absolutely loved the final design. I could not recommend her more!

    A wonderful experience

    I had such a wonderful experience working with Erica. It was so nice to work with someone who truly cared and took the time to create my dream dress. It was amazing talking about my ideas, watching Erica sketch different options and give an honest, experienced opinion to create not only something I felt beautiful in, but something I felt comfortable in that had all the support structure in place! She was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Erica!
