Heartfelt gratitude for an unforgettable experience

I hold the deepest gratitude for the exceptional experience I had at Brides by Solo while searching for my dress.

From the very beginning, Sadie proved to be not only a knowledgeable, dedicated consultant, but also the loveliest human being. Her warm presence and kind heart made every appointment an absolute joy. I truly felt in safe hands throughout the entire process, and her genuine interest in my wellbeing and wedding planning journey meant the world to me.

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have found my dream dress during my very first appointment at Brides by Solo. The level of service I received was nothing short of exceptional, providing me with a premium, luxury experience that surpassed all expectations. Brides by Solo will be the first name I enthusiastically recommend to any friends or family members embarking on their own wedding journey.

My appointments at this boutique were, without a doubt, one of my favourite parts of the wedding planning experience. The unwavering support, comfort, and valuable advice, I received from Sadie and Grace, were genuinely appreciated and made the process so enjoyable.

Thank you Sadie and Grace for being an integral part of my journey to the altar. Your exceptional service and genuine care have left an indelible mark on my wedding experience.

My dress made me feel like a princess!

Grace & Sadie were amazing at helping me find the perfect wedding dress for my special day, I couldn't wish for a better service from start to finish! Even after the big day, they have been very helpful in looking to get the dress cleaned for me.

The shop is lovely and has such a variety to choose from. I absolutely loved my dress, it made me feel like a princess and I cant wait to see the professional photos!

The dress came in with plenty of time to be altered and Grace recommended a seamstress to make sure the dress was fitted perfectly to me. The whole process was stress free which was amazing and ill be forever grateful. Cant recommend enough!!

Thank you!

Many many thanks for all your advice and hard work in creating my beautiful wedding dress to be just how I wanted it. I was so pleased when i'd finally found 'the one' after trying on 60 dresses! Louise was fantastic at recommending alterations to my dress that I hadnt even thought of and I couldnt believe how natural you made the dress look. Thank you for being so patient, and professional.

The dress on the day fitted perfectly. After sweating in the heat and drinking a bit too much wine the week before hand in Turkey, I was a bit worried that it would be a bit tight, but I actually felt very comfortable and my mum couldnt believe how well done the lace round the top was. I enjoyed wearing my dress so much, so thank you for a great experinece in buying it.

Thanks a million again for all your help.

I want to say thank you so much for all for your assistance and advice in making the purchase of my wedding dress a really stress less and lovely experience. I know you must hear this a lot but I really did feel special from the first visit with my friend up to the last when you boxed up my dress to travel. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your store to any future brides to be.

We had a fantastic day and I got so many lovely comments about my dress.

An absolute dream

So sorry it’s taken me so long to get in contact, it was a busy end of the year. We had the BEST wedding day and I felt so beautiful. Jack was close to tears and loved my dress too. It was everything I ever hoped for. The whole wedding dress process was an absolute dream so thank you so much for making it everything I hoped it with be, regardless of my size.
Here are a few pics for you, and I will definitely be getting my dress cleaned with you.

Again thank you very much,

I wouldn't trust anyone else.

So sorry it has taken me a while to get around to this. We had an absolutely perfect day! I could not have asked for more. Sadie you played a real part in this, your advice and patience to ensure I had the right dress meant so much, thank you!
I have attached a few pictures, more than happy for you to share them. I tried to find some that show the dress off to its best. And one to show an extra special guest to my wedding….William the swan! He even joined n during the “does anyone know any just…..: his timing was perfect!
I want to bring the dress back for you to clean and box, I would not trust anyone else.

Would definitely recommend!

The team are so friendly here and I love the way they let me choose my dress. They gave myself, my mum and my bridesmaid the opportunity to walk around for 20 minutes and tag the dresses we like. We were able to try the dresses on in a quiet, intimate space and we had the shops full attention the whole time. They had a beautiful selection of boho dresses. We found the dress on the day and they have been really helpful ever since! Would definitely recommend!

A huge thank you.

I just wanted to send a brief (I will send some more pics and a proper review after the mini moon) message to say a huge thank you for all of your help with the dress.

I picked the dress for the venue, and hopefully you can see why from the below.

My mum will be bringing in the dress for your cleaning service if she hasn’t already been In. I would love if it can be restored to its former beauty, it didn’t get too bad however a guest did get red wine down the back sadly so I’m really hoping your team can work their magic to clean it and box it up nicely.

Thank you again

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart

I don't even know where to begin with thank you all for everything.

It's hard to believe a year ago I was in your shop and said "yes to the dress". Every step of the way you were all nothing but welcoming to me and my family. You all became part of my wedding journey with me. To think our journey together started with me entering a simple Facebook competition.

I started my wedding dress hunt with not a single idea of what I wanted and we sure did have fun trying on every style of dress I think possible. However, I came out with a clear idea of exactly what I wanted. From this day forward I had set my heart on one dress, one dress which was not in store, though in time it did come in. When I received the phone call to say the dress had arrived I was so eager to try it on. I knew as soon as I put it on it was the dress.

Once the dress was ordered and my dress arrived in store, the alterations were brilliant. My daughter loved coming to these sessions as she really did feel comfortable to be herself around you all.

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me find my perfect dress. I loved it then, when I wore it and even looking at it hanging in the bag!

We had a lovely day and I felt fantastic. Thanks so much for all your hard work in the boiling heat to make sure that the dress fitted perfectly.
I will recommend you to everyone and leave some feedback for you too.
