Perfect experience

I was so happy to find my dress at the Real Wedding Collective. Carrie was so so flexible when fitting me in for an appointment and made me instantly feel comfortable. I highly recommend this shop!

Amazing Appointment!

I honestly cannot thank both Carrie and Sadie enough for the most amazing experience! Ahead of my appointment I had a phone consultation which helped to narrow down the styles of dress that I was looking for, and the team even managed to get some samples before my appointment which was great so that I had a variety to try on. On the day, I felt really relaxed and comfortable which made the experience even better. I said YES to the dress and we celebrated with prosecco which was a lovely touch! I’m so pleased that I booked in here, after seeing the range that they had on their website. Can’t wait to pick up my dress for the big day, thank you both again!

The most incredible dress shopping experience!

Thank you to The Real Wedding Collective who went above and beyond to make my dress shopping experience the most fun, relaxing process. They went as far as to order in dresses from their suppliers for me to try on, and they truly made me feel very special. I cannot wait to see my dress when it arrives! xx

I am so happy I purchased my dress from The Real Wedding Collective. Sadie & Carrie were so helpful, knowledgeable and just all round kind and lovely individuals. They helped me choose my dream dress and we're so supportive during the whole process. It couldn't have been easier! They have so much in store including a selection of veils, bridesmaid dresses and accessories. This little shop is small but magical. Highly recommend.

Must go to wedding dress shop!

I had an apt. with Carrie in her beautiful wedding dress shop and was made to feel so very welcome from the moment we went in. I was with my mum and sister and went to try and find my perfect dress. The choice was so good, they really stock some beautiful gowns, some of the nicest I had seen so far. I tried on 3 and Carrie somehow made me feel at ease standing in the changing room in just my underwear! There was no pressure sales, just lovely customer service and a really nice relaxed atmosphere. Even though I did not find the dress for me, I would recommend any bride to be to go and visit them as it is a must go to wedding place!

Amazing boutique, staff and dresses!

Beautiful boutique, amazing and knowledgable staff, stunningly beautiful dresses and accessories. We had the best couple of hours during our VIP sessions and actually found THE dress! Carrie is amazing and she actually picked out THE dress for me! Communication faultless. Would and have recommend to everyone. Thank you so much for everything!

I can't wait!

I had such a wonderful experience at The Real Wedding Collective. I brought my maid of honour with me and we video-called my mum. It was such a relaxed and lovely afternoon chatting, sipping prosecco, and trying on dresses. I really felt special and well looked after.

Carrie & Sadie have so many gorgeous dresses to choose from, and I was really struggling with deciding what style of dress I wanted - my short list was 12! I tried on 15 very different dresses in the end, but we all knew as soon as I found The One (#11). As much as I loved nearly all of them, mine was the obvious choice, and I can't wait for my fiancé to see me at our wedding!
