Couldn't be happier

5
Last year Una made my daughters wedding dress which was a masterpiece. While attending for the fittings I asked Una if she could make something for me as I couldn't see myself in some of the traditional mother of the bride outfits. The whole experience was so enjoyable and Una designed a fabulous, original dress for me in a style I had never envisaged. I felt glamorous and comfortable all day. The dress is so versatile that I have worn it to several other outings. My daughter obviously was dazzling in the most amazing dress. We had a great time going for fittings and seeing it all come together. Both dresses were ready well ahead of the big day.
This summer I needed another outfit for a special occasion and immediately turned to Una. She made me the most appropriate and elegant dress. I couldn't be happier with the service I have received and would recommend Una and her hard working team without hesitation.

Una is a super designer!

After searching high up and low down for the perfect outfit for my wedding my mum decided to pay Una a visit. Una had been recommended to me by several friends however I was nervous about encouraging my mum as she is very fussy! From our first consultation Una was very professional and totally dedicated. All our appointments were fulfilled and enjoyable. We attended four appointments which we really looked forward to. My mums outfit was nothing short of a master piece! We were so impressed by Una's flare and professionalism that we have already planned to return. Una is most certainly one in a million! Thanks again Una! From Shelia and Lisa x

Una rocks!!

Una Rodden is incredible! She recently made a dress for me for my brother-in-law's wedding, and I loved it so much! It was trendy and really different - certainly not the usual wedding attire! I got compliments all day, and afterwards on Facebook, even from a friend in Brussels who hadn't contacted me in 10 years! Una can turn her hand to anything, and was a joy to deal with. She is such a lovely person too. I will definitely be back! Thank you Una!!

Bitterly disappointing

2
I went to Una Rodden in February this year,to have an outfit made for my daughters wedding which was in June of this year. Thought that was plenty of time to have my special outfit made as I would only be doing this once. My appointments were always cancelled, and every time I went they had changed the design from what I had originally asked for to what they thought would be okay. To cut the story short, I was standing in the shop two days before the wedding crying at 10.45pm and my outfit was a mess. I had to go on the eve of the wedding 3 times to have other things fixed and picked the outfit up at 6pm . I had to pin the collar of my jacket in place on the morning of the wedding as the stitching had come away. I am still traumatised by the whole experience. Initial promises not kept, shoddy work and it spoilt my only daughters wedding day for me.

Terrible Quality Outfit for a Big Occasion!

1
I'm afraid the first review has alot more in common with my experience than the second.

My Mum went to Una to get a mother of the bride outfit made for my wedding in April. The progress was very slow and Mum eventually recieved the finished outfit on the Tuesday before the wedding on the saturday. The tuesday was the first time mum had seen the finished outfit, and was bitterly disappointed in the quality, but she thought she had no option but to take it and make do as the wedding was only a few days away and she had already spent a fortune on matching hat and shoes.

I live in England and arrived home on the Wednesday before the wedding and mum tearfully showed me her outfit. It didn't fit well, you could see where the stitching had been torn out and re done. The sewing had been done in an orange thread on purple silk, and it looked as though they had run out of material before they had finished the skirt. I couldn't believe she had paid nearly £1000 for it! I realise fashion is subjective, but there is no way this could be passed off as anything but shoddy workmanship.

We took it to our local dress makers on the Thursday morning (2 days before wedding) to see if she could at least do something with the jacket which looked awful. The dressmaker advised my mum that she could not believe Una had allowed mum to leave the shop with something so dreadful. The dressmaker said there really was nothing she could do to improve it, and advised my mum to go straight to the shops that morning and see if she could buy something else.

Thankfully our wonderful dressmaker said for Mum to buy whatever size she could find and she would stay up all night altering it if required, as she wouldn't have anyone going to their daughters wedding in such a terrible outfit.

My mum shouldn't have left the shop with the outfit in the first place, but it was only a few days before the wedding and she really felt she had no choice.

In the end, Mum got a great outfit and managed to get it altered to fit by the big day, but it was incredibly stressful and not how either of us wanted to spend the day before my wedding. After the wedding, when we had all a bit more time to think rationally, we phoned Una and she agreed to refund most of the money (£700). She didn't quibble at all, so I feel she knew that she had let a terrible product go out the door.

I'm sure Una does a great job for some people and perhaps we were just very unlucky!
