I was very nervous about my first wedding dress shopping experience, but from booking, Lucy made everything so easy and personal. I shared my Pinterest board with her before my appointment and then when we arrived Lucy had selected a few dresses she thought might fit the theme.
We were welcomed with a Bucks Fizz and had the entire store to ourselves. The warmth and genuine care and attention from Lucy & the team was wonderful and put me at ease immediately.
The store itself is beautifully laid out and well lit, something which at first we might not have particularly noticed as you assume all stores would be set up similarly, but after visiting other stores we realised how easy it was to get good pictures of the dresses here. Some other stores didn't have such great lighting and there was a lot going on in the background so it was hard to see the dress as the main focal point.
I tried on lots of dresses I loved, and had said at one point "it would be great if there was one with this top, and this bottom"... and immediately Lucy popped down to the rails and came back with the exact dress and as soon as I put it on it was pretty much a given!
As I mentioned, we did visit a couple of other stores after BOB but my mind kept coming back to this dress & also to the experience I had had. When thinking about the follow up and lead up to the wedding I thought about how lovely it would be to work with them.
I booked a follow up appointment to try on my favourite dresses again, and we were once again looked after wonderfully by Carol & Jess! As soon as I popped the dress on again I loved it! I was worried about the length & if it would change the style once it was altered to my actual length. I asked Carol to pin it up at the hem so we could get an idea and she was more than happy to oblige! And she sent off around the store to see how it moved and how it felt to walk in it and get a good feel for the wear of the dress.
So happy I said yes to this dress and I am looking forward to the rest of the journey with the team at Brides of Berkhamsted! Can't wait until October to see it on the day all fitted perfectly!!
Thank you so much xx
