Literally a Dream Come True!

I had the most incredible experience at Sassi Holford Somerset! Since the age of 7, I had walked past the shop in Taunton with my mum and dreamt of one day wearing one of their beautiful gowns on my wedding day, and my dream well and truly came true!

Lucy was the stylist who helped me pick out my dress at my first appointment. Her knowledge is second to none, and I was made to feel so special and welcome. I also had a couple of appointments with Kristine, who is just as wonderful as Lucy is! Lucy and Kristine were also so helpful when it came to picking a veil to go with my dress - their expertise and advice was so welcome, because I had no idea where to start! I asked advice on all kinds of things from accessories to shoes to hairstyles to underwear, and each and every time I received the best advice.

All of the dresses that I tried on were gorgeous. Sassi Holford really understands the female form, and designs gowns that flatter and accentuate your best features - I always felt like I was wearing the dress, the dress was never wearing me. All the materials are carefully selected, and of top quality.

Once I had settled on a dress (Mia), I was so well looked after, and kept in the loop throughout the entire process. Emily, the seamstress who does the final tweaks and alterations once your gown has been made, is awesome - I really felt like I was in safe hands with her, and I had full confidence that she would ensure that my dress would fit like a glove on my wedding day, which it did! She even stitched a silver sixpence (that I provided) into my dress at my request, as well as an adorable blue satin bow. She is a miracle worker - I had to cancel my initial final fitting appointment due to contracting Covid, and by the time I was able to come in for the appointment, she only had a 48 hour window to work with, but she managed it!

The aftercare and advice you are given when you go to collect your dress ready for the big day is also great! From an emergency kit to have on the day, to recommending a specialist dry cleaner, all bases are covered! And emails are always replied to quickly and in a very friendly manner.

From start to finish, I cannot fault the service that these three ladies provided to me (as well as my mum, sister, nan and mother in law, who all accompanied me to appointments at various stages) - they are all superstars! And the dress was the stuff of dreams - it was like it had been designed with me specifically in mind! I felt like royalty on my wedding day, and had so many compliments from my family and friends. It was well made from the best quality materials, and the attention to detail (the lace, the buttons, the train, the underskirts) was incredible. I love how it was made locally in Taunton too. Meeting Sassi herself at my first appointment was the cherry on top of the cake.

Thank you, Lucy, Kristie and Emily (and everyone behind the scenes), for making my wedding dress dreams come true. I will be forever grateful.

The best experience

The team at Sassi were a joy to visit, we miss going there now! They made the whole process so fun and my dress was absolutely beautiful. They stock Maggie Sottero and with some of her designs you can pick and choose what you like, to add a personal touch (what colour you'd like, if you'd like a sparkle layer etc).
