Alison & Charlotte were AMAZING!!

I recently said YES to my dream wedding dress at Fairytale Bride and want to share my amazing experience with future brides as Alison and Charlotte were AMAZING!! I am such a nervous person and was so worried about wedding dress shopping but the ladies here really put me at ease. I tried on the most incredible dresses and the ladies even helped me customise my dress to exactly what I was searching for. They were even speaking to the designer on the phone whilst I was there to find out if it was possible and to confirm the design with them. I was so impressed with this service!! Their shop is absolutely beautiful and they have sizes for everyone - which I thought was so nice to see (I'm a UK 12 and couldn't fit in any dresses elsewhere) Every small detail is thought out including treats and drinks, a goody bag with such lovely things inside for when I found my dress. I 100% recommend them and I'm so happy to have found Fairytale Bride. THANK YOU!!! xxx

An amazing dressing shopping experience with Fairytale Bride

Alison and Charlotte were both so amazing and welcoming and made me feel at home right away. After choosing some dresses to try on, both Alison and Charlotte brought through some other styles to me that I hadn't chosen but they'd picked out based on what I did or didn't like about previous dresses. It was one of these dresses that I ended up picking! A dress I never thought I would choose or even try on but it ended up being the one for me. Thank you both so much! I cannot recommend Fairytale Bride enough xxxx
