Testimonials from our brides

Dear Polly and the Team,

I wanted to take the time to say a massive thank you to you (and all the team) for your help and dedication. My dress was everything I could have ever dreamed of. It fit perfectly on the day and that was down to your care and attention during the measuring and fitting stages. 

We had the most magical day and The Bride Team contributed significantly. 

Thank you,


Dear Polly,

I wanted to thank you to you and your wonderful team for all your support, patience and friendly advice throughout the planning of our wedding last October.
It was a very special day, living up to what everyone says that it'll be the best day of your life!!
I received endless compliments on my dress, so wanted to personally thank you and Suzanne Neville because I felt incredible!

Kind regards

I had a brilliant experience from the first moment we arrived at The Bride. I knew I wanted a Jenny Packham dress but as an older bride in my fifties felt slightly self conscious about visiting a bridal store. Everyone made me and my grown up children welcome and were attentive, helpful and made our day dress shopping a delight. Rani is an expert and her alterations made the dress perfect for me and I LOVED wearing my Portia dress on the day itself with my daughters as bridesmaids.

I would definitely recommend The Bride to anyone. Thank you so much to everyone!.

Hi Polly,

I just wanted to thank you, Rani and all the staff at The Bride for giving me the most wonderful experience and guidance in choosing my wedding dress. 
We had an incredible day and I felt like a princess in my dress. 

Lots of Love

Hi Polly and your lovely Team,

I hope you're all well. I wanted to share a few pictures with you from the wedding. I felt amazing in my dress. It made a hit! 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing attention and service you gave my mum and I. Every trip to the store was a pleasure and I'll be sure to make a trip to St Albans shortly to see you all.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the help you gave me with choosing my wedding dress especially in the time restraints we had. You said you would find me a dress and you did just that. The dress, veil and headdress was just beautiful on the day and so comfortable. I wore it until I was dragged to bed by my husband at 5am in the morning. The wedding at Limewood was such a fabulous day and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and perfect dress for me. A lot of my friends said I looked like the ultimate Dolce and Gabbana bride which was the look I wanted.

Again thank you so much. Hope to see you again when my sister finally decides to set a date!

All the Best 


To Polly and all at The Bride,

Thankyou so much for everything in helping me find the perfect wedding dress. 

Our day was perfect and I had so many compliments about my dress, veil & headband.

The professionalism and level of service I received on every visit to the bride is a clear sign of the quality business you run.

Thanks Again!!

Dear everyone at The Bride, 

I got married at Burgh House on 24th June this year, wearing Fleur by Suzanne Neville. The day was absolutely incredible - truly the best day of my life! (I thought that was a cliche but it was true!)

The dress was fantastic, everyone commented on the day and looking at the pictures how great it was and I felt I was wearing something really special. So thank you for all your help and expertise and for making it fit perfectly. 

Many thanks again!

Hi Polly and the whole team at The Bride

I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so so so so so much for getting me ready for my wedding day in Hampshire in my absolutely beautiful Suzanne Neville dress. From the day we walked into the shop you treated me like a princess and really went out of your way to make sure that I would look perfect on the big day. 

I can't thank you all enough and will be recommending you highly to all my friends. 

Lots of love

To everyone at The Bride,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Polly and the team for making my dress experience so amazing. From making sure that my very picky tastes were accommodated, to receiving hordes of my family at any given time to survey the dress, The Bride have been a dream to work with and I only wish you sold more than wedding dresses! We have loved visiting you and the dresses and sad that our time is over, but I will be recommending you to ALL of my friends!

Dear Polly and everyone at The Bride,

I just wanted to say thank you to you for helping me find my wedding dress at your shop. I adored my "Cherish" by Suzanne Neville, it was the most beautiful dreamy dress I have ever seen or worn!

You were all so friendly and professional; putting me at ease at each fitting. Thank you for everything and good luck for the future!

Many thanks,


I cannot thank the team at The Bride more for all their help finding me the perfect dress. This bridal store really is the place to get exactly what you want. My dress ended up being a mixture of two designers and it was truely unique. I am still absolutely in love with the dress which fitted me like a glove on the day thanks to Rani! Every member of staff that I worked with was friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this store more highly and only wish I could come back ever year for a new dress!!

Hi Polly and everyone,

Thank you for making my dress shopping experience one to remember, from the first trip in the pouring rain! It was such an amazingly emotional experience for my friends and I, and I definitely left with the right dress.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, I wish I could do it all over again.

I cannot praise Polly and the team enough! When my wedding was unexpectedly brought forward 5 months, they pulled out all the stops to ensure my gorgeous Suzanne Neville dress was in earlier and took so much of the stress away with their reassurance. We felt so welcome in my fittings, nothing was ever a problem and they went our of their way to make the whole experience special. Would recommend in a heartbeat - thank you!

Dear lovely ladies at The Bride,

I just wanted to say a  HUGE thank you to you all for helping me find my beautiful wedding dress. It was everything I dreamed it would be and more. I felt like an absolute princess wearing my Sassi Holford gown and I loved wearing it. Of all the elements of the wedding planning process, working with you was probably my favourite. You made me feel at ease from my very first visit and were always friendly, calm, positive and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family!

Sending lots of love and best wishes to you all for a happy, healthy and successful 2016.

Lots of love Rachael xx

Dear Polly and the team,

I wanted to say thank you so, so much for helping me to find my dream dress. Buying Cherish in the first shop I went to, on my first and then only day of wedding dress shopping was definitely meant to be! Nikki, Polly and the incredibly talented Rani - you all made it an absolute pleasure and are true professionals.

Thanks for putting up with my minor wobbles along the way too, my mum enjoyed gloating on the day when they were completely and utterly behind me and I couldn't believe I'd ever doubted my decision!!

We really did have the best day of our lives in lovely Portugal, and I felt like the ballerina princess I'd always dreamed of in my beautiful gown :)

Thanks again!

With love from,

Lizzie (and mum Lindsey too!) xx

Dear Polly, Nicky, Rani and team,

I just wanted to write to say such a huge thank you for helping me find my dream dress, and for making the whole thing such a pleasurable and memorable experience.  From the moment we stepped foot in your gorgeous shop I hoped I would find my dress there.  You made me feel so welcome with such friendly service and genuine advice.  The first time I tried the Novello dress on I knew instantly it was 'the one' as it made me feel absolutely incredible – I had never seen myself look like that before, and I really didn't think I'd end up in a big dress!  Suzanne's dresses are utter perfection.  I honestly wish I could wear it everyday!

We had the most amazing day (sandwiched between two days of downpours!), and I had so many compliments on the dress.  Two guests told me it was the most beautiful wedding dress they had ever seen.  Given they were both 50+ I took this as a huge compliment.

With every good wish for the future – I will be recommending you to all of my engaged friends.

Thank you so much again,

Sophie (now Mrs Rohleder!) x

Hi Polly,

Just a little note to say thank you to you and all your lovely team in helping me chose the most perfect dress for our wedding day and being so kind every time we popped in to your beautiful shop. It fitted me perfectly and I couldn't have asked for more! I've attached a few photos of it in action for you!

Hi Polly, 

I wanted to get in touch to say a big thank you for all your help with my dress. We had a fabulous day and everyone said that they thought my dress was amazing. 

The service you provided from my first visit up to when I collected my dress was second to none. I always felt that I was in good hands and this was very reassuring. 

Thanks again


Dear Polly and the team,

Thank you so much for helping me find my dream wedding dress ( Suzanne Neville- Honey)

My experience at The Bride was so relaxed, Polly and the team made my Mum and I feel very special every time we visited.

The attention to detail of the team and their patience and determination to give me the dress I wanted took all the nerves away and gave me the experience every bride hopes for when the imagine picking their dress.

The final result was stunning and I felt amazing!! My husband loved the dress and everyone said how beautiful and elegant it was.

I would highly recommend The Bride.  Thank you so much for making my experience so special.

Many thanks,

Dear Polly and the fabulous ladies at The Bride,

I wanted to drop you all a note to say an immensely big thank you for making me feel absolutely wonderful on my wedding day. I never thought I would feel truly happy in a wedding dress not having a model figure, but from the moment I stepped foot into your beautiful store - you made me feel so special. You all had so much patience and valuable advice when I was looking for dresses and if it hadn't have been for Nikki plucking my Suzanne Neville Hepburn off the rail for me to try on, I wouldn't have had the dress I did! 

I had so many compliments from friends and family and most importantly my husband (eeek!) loved the dress! I genuinely felt like a princess for the day and I have you all to thank for that. Thank you so much from myself (and also my Mum - Nikki, she will miss you!) for everything you did and the support you gave me during every step, I will recommend every bride to be I know to head straight for The Bride when their day comes.

Thank you all so much,

Lots of love and best wishes,

Just wanted to send you a little note to express my gratitude to you all at The Bride for helping me find my perfect wedding dress.  I felt like a princess in my Suzanne Neville dress!  Thank you so much for all being so wonderful and supportive when I came to look for a dress in a complete panic! The Bride will forever hold a special place in my heart.  

Thank you,
