Dream Come True!

Lisa turned a sketch I had roughly drawn into my dream wedding dress with expert skill. She made the whole process so much fun, I would highly recommend her!

Perfect wedding dress alterations

Lisa was absolutely a delight to work with! I ordered my wedding dress form a boutique on the slightly later side and they couldn't accommodate me for alterations in a less than 10 week period. I messaged Lisa and she was able to see me that week (around my rather inflexible schedule). My alterations were perfect - dress fit me like a glove and she added an easy-to-manuever bustle for my long train - I felt so beautiful! Alterations were completed in a really timely fashion. She was also very communicative and easy to get in touch with. I would recommend her to any bride!

So talented and a very fun experience.

As a hater of shopping and wanting something that was truly my own, my search stopped when I found Lisa Lyons Bridal. From our first consultation meeting, Lisa understood the perils of wedding dress shopping and guided me through her process. I'm so grateful to have found Lisa. Her precision and attention to detail is astounding. The design, the material, the embroidery, the buttons, it's all gorgeous - thanks to Lisa! If any doubt, do it!

Wonderful alterations

Lisa did my bridal dress alterations and on the day steaming service! It was a joy from start to finish, visiting her studio in Harpenden for fittings through to on the day when she made my dress look picture perfect even showing the bridesmaids how to dress me and handle the dress on the day! Lisa was kind and professional throughout and the alterations were fantastic and my dress looked amazing. Thank you Lisa!! Xx

Dream Dress Created - Thank you Lisa!

From the moment Lisa sent me a sketch of my dress I knew she was the person I wanted to work with. She understood everything I wanted and created exactly that! I felt a million dollars on my wedding day, wearing exactly the dress I had imagined. Having your dress made bespoke gives you that extra special feeling, knowing it is a one off design and every element is handmade. I couldn't recommend Lisa more, she was a pleasure to work with, friendly, welcoming, professional and a ridiculously talented lady.

Simply Stunning

I found Lisa via Guides for Brides. We had a couple of email exchanges before meeting up. I had found a picture of "the dress" on pinterest. From that one image Lisa created my dream dress, she sourced amazing fabric and made a stunning gown. It was put on pause because of Covid, but we picked back up in Feb 21 for my wedding in August and it was such a pleasure going for fittings. As on older bride, and it being a second wedding the dress was just perfect, I kept it on the whole day and received so many amazing comments. Lisa is an amazing dressmaker and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Would highly recommend

I was quite nervous about altering my wedding dress as it was so heavily beaded. Lisa did an amazing job of working with the intricate details and altering it to fit me perfectly. She was also just a dream to work with in general - throughout the difficult covid restrictions and some other personal circumstances, I had to keep quite flexible and plans were changing every week. Lisa was super positive and flexible which was a huge help. Her show room was lovely and it was great to see some of the dresses she had made - if I didn't already have a dress I would have LOVED one of hers. Would highly recommend!

Bespoke dress of dreams!

It was an amazing feeling wearing a hand made, one of a kind, bespoke wedding dress that I had designed myself, and I am so thankful to Lisa for putting my vision together. The process is fun from seeing sketches, choosing fabrics, trying on mock ups, to the finishing touches! I changed my mind along the way and this was never too much trouble either. Lisa also came on the day to steam my dress which was such a great help and took that extra pressure off. Thank you Lisa!

Incredibly lovely lady who made my dream dress for unbelievable value!

I couldn’t believe my luck when I found Lisa! She is incredibly lovely, patient and flexible. She is extremely talented and had the most stunning and comfortable dresses, I fell in love with one, and she then made me my own version from scratch with a handful of changes I wanted - all for significantly less than the cost of all the other dresses I’d tried on in boutiques/shops! Plus if you happen to already know exactly what you want, Lisa can make that for you too :) So I would recommend Lisa to ANYONE looking for a wedding dress (and I do!!), because she is a dream to work with and will give you your dream dress. At least that part of the wedding planning can be enjoyable and stress free!

Simply the best!

I can’t recommend Lisa enough. She altered my wedding dress and made it magical. Lisa’s attention to detail is amazing and she has such a friendly, down-to-earth approach, which puts you at ease. The whole experience was brilliant. Thank you Lisa for helping to make our wedding so special!

The best of the best

Lisa was fantastic throughout my experience with her. She had a lot of work to do on my dress to make it fit me after I purchased it from the dress shop. In the end my dress fitted me perfectly and she also altered my bridesmaids dresses which were a very difficult satin material. They all looked incredible in them when she had finished them and you’d never know the material had been touched at all. I would recommend anyone to Lisa as she is so talented and has an eye for detail. Thank you much for perfecting my dream dress!

A fantastic experience, highly recommended

My experience with Lisa was an absolute joy. We worked together to create a 'Sunday Funday' dress for our continued celebrations the day after our wedding. I was initially quite nervous about creating a bespoke dress, however Lisa put me at ease throughout the process and listened so intently to my ideas and guided me through from initial sketches to the final fitting.
Lisa is incredibly skilled at what she does, and the dress she created for me was utterly wonderful. It fit like a dream and I had so many compliments.
Thank you so much Lisa, it was a dream to work with you!

Excellent Professional Service

Lisa did alterations at short notice on our bridesmaids dresses after we had been let down by the supplier that sold them to us.
They were perfect and everything about her service was efficient and professional. She was extremely, kind, helpful and easy to deal with.
Had we have known about Lisa in the beginning, we would have gone straight to her to make them in the first place.
Excellent Service!

Lisa was amazing !!

Lisa was amazing and I am so glad I found her! Before meeting Lisa, I had a few appointments cancelled at other dress shops and due to covid was told I couldn’t order a dress in time for my wedding. I managed to track down a sample of my dream dress and took it to Lisa! I was a bit worried she wasn’t going to be able to alter it as it was so heavily beaded … but I was so wrong ! Lisa made the dress fit me perfectly and made sure I was 100% happy and comfortable in it! The atmosphere was so relaxed and her studio was lovely - she had so many beautiful dresses in there! I can’t thank you enough for helping me sort my dream dress and I would highly recommend!!
