Desperate to get out the door!
Having travelled over 3 hours to get to Curves and Couture, which they were aware of, we were greeted by two ladies at the reception both seemed nice enough and sent us through to pull out dresses for me to try on.Sent on 23/06/2021
First thing to note is that there is not much selection. Probably 40 dresses at most, only 15 or so that I could try on.
I pulled out 5 that I wanted to try and on and the ladies came through to help.
I do have to say that their ‘try on’ procedure is second to none! One of them will whip off the dress you’re trying on while the other comes straight in with the next one to try.
We tried on a few dresses and I found one that I really loved. Then it started to go south, unfortunately.
The dress was way over budget so I said that I’d have to go away and think about it. Once I’d said that it felt like they were desperate to get me out of the door. I asked if I could try on another dress and they said no, it’s not your size, and started putting the other samples dresses away, clearly ending the appointment.
We went to leave and was making casual conversation, they made it clear we were the last appointment of the day and that they wanted to get home. We were there for 35 minutes - bearing in mind we travelled 3.5 hours to get there!
Once we’d left we hadn’t even finished putting our bags and bits in the car before they came out, locked up, and drove off, about 45 seconds after we’d walked out the shop - not even in our car yet!
I was really upset that they’d been so desperate to see us off.
Thankfully, however, I called another boutique on the way home who had the exact same dress for 50% less. I went to that boutique a few days later and they spent over an hour making me feel fabulous and helping me order my dress.
A very poor experience but it all worked out in the end as I found my dress and saved £750 getting it elsewhere with better service!!

I am soooo impressed with C and C. What a highly professional and personal service. I was hugely anxious when I went in for my appointment but I really didn't need to worry as the whole experience was a joy and the ladies were so kind with their time and ideas. I walked out with an amazing dress and am absolutely delighted. Can't recommend highly enough.Sent on 05/02/2016

put a smile on my face
I'm a 62 year old bride to be, never shopped for a wedding dress before, and am size 16. So very daunted. I saw Curves & Couture on the TV and thought they came across well, so plucked up the courage to book in to see them.Sent on 14/09/2015
I cannot put in words how helpful, encouraging and confidence boosting Alison and Jo were. It made the whole experience a really positive one, and from assuming I would never find a dress i like, I think i have found two, lol, now its just choosing which one.
If you are 16+ try them, I dont think u will be let down.
