  • "Relaxed, calm, happy experience. Found The Dress!!"
    Emma on 3 June 2018

    Thank you Jessica for a lovely experience for my sister in finding her perfect dress. We had a relaxing session of choosing dresses which my sister then tried on with Jessica's expert help and gentle advice. We were delighted to find The Dress on this visit, which has now set a beautiful wedding theme. My sister is very happy and I think a bit more relaxed about the wedding now! We look forward to getting the dress fitted and some bespoke shoulder straps or sleeves made by Shade bridal. The atmosphere at Shade Bridal is classy, calm, friendly and kind. Jessica made us cups of tea and coffee, and we sat in lovely chairs in the beautiful, serene shop. The fact that the shop is fairly small is to its credit and works really well. The choice of dresses was plenty without being overwhelming, and there were dresses to suit all budgets and tastes. We actually got really lucky with the sale rail, and believe that this dress has just been waiting for my sister. Thank you so much! XXX

  • "Amazing"
    Hannah Crawford - March 2018 on 27 March 2018

    Jessica has been amazing throughout my whole wedding dress shopping process. On our first visit, I absolutely loved one particular dress, but couldn't make up my mind. Jessica didn't put any pressure on at all about buying it. A few weeks later (after a lot of other dresses), I decided that this original dress had been 'the one'. I contacted Jessica and it was still there - definitely 'meant-to-be'. Mum and I went to try the dress on again and the decision was sealed!! We booked in a date to go and have the dress altered and Natalie (the seamstress) was fantastic! She is definitely incredibly skilled - and both her and Jessica had some ingenious ideas in terms of fixing up the dress to make it perfect! Nothing has been too much trouble for either of them - especially with fitting me in as I live in London! I cannot wait to wear my dress in less than 3 weeks time!! Definitely couldn't recommend Shade Bridal more!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for a dress to arrive after ordering?

Our wedding dresses can take between three and four months to arrive. It can be faster than that if we put on a 'rush order', which costs a little more. We always say that it's never too early to order a wedding dress but it can be too late!

When do fittings start and how many am I expected to have?

We like to begin our alterations at around five to six weeks before a wedding date. All brides need at least two fittings, sometimes up to four, depending on the work being carried out.
