When I visited, Village Brides had a good selection of different dresses in my size (10-12) for me to try. I told Emma my maximum budget and she showed me ones that would come within it (and also pointed out which ones definitely wouldn't). She was relaxed, calm, friendly and professional - I didn't feel at all stressed at any point, and it was altogether an enjoyable experience. She didn't impose her own opinion on me, and was very helpful when I needed information/advice about the different dresses.
Thank you Emma!
So quick to reply to my many messages, incredibly personable, very knowledgeable, open and honest. The most accommodating and relaxing wedding dress shopping experience I've ever had - this coming from a nervous bride, shy of 'all eyes on me' situations. Both Emma and Ramsey gave such insightful guidance and sound advice without being in the least bit pushy or overbearing. I didn't feel like just another bride, everything I (and those with me) did/said (which they must have experienced a million times over), felt as though it was the first time they'd encountered it - genuine, kind and caring people, you are wholly deserving of your most recent industry award - BEST IN THE WORLD!
I just wish every business were the same. Please, if you are looking for somewhere to find your dress, Village Brides is all you will need - their stock changes frequently, always a one off more unique find, masses of choice. My only disappointment is that Ramsey doesn't have more businesses in other industries - the world benefits from business professionals like he and Emma.
The girls were trying on dresses then Ramsey suggested I put on a bridal gown to see what it looked like when we all stood together. I wasn't intending to look for a dress for myself that day but as soon as I saw 'the' dress i fell in love. It was a truly special moment to have found the dress at this moment and that magic didn't wear off in the whole time I dealt with Michelle and Ramsey! They were always so helpful with any questions and whenever I called or texted I felt like I was receiving a truly personal response.
The next day, although they didn't have any official appointments Ramsey and Michelle allowed me to come in at the end of the day to try one more time to make absolutely sure it was 'the one'. I really appreciated this as it really helped with making such a big decision.
We did some fairly major alterations to the train of the dress and this all went so smoothly and the seamstress did a brilliant job. I then had it altered on the bodice a little nearer the time and again all was absolutely perfect. I always felt like there was enough time allowed with our appointments that I didnt need to rush and could enjoy getting used to wearing the dress (I never wanted to take it off!).
As a secondary point I must say my dress was a truly overwhelming price - the cheapest I tried anywhere and that was just a massive bonus on top of loving it beyond all others. I love the proposition that all the dresses in the shop are sensibly priced as it was so refreshing compared to so many other shops where practically nothing is less than £1000. Though the dresses in stock may not be the latest ranges - it gives a much better chance of standing out from the crowd in something unique and I'd encourage any bride to take a look as you never know what you'll find!
The bridesmaids ended up with dresses from a different source due to wanting a very specific colour but we used the alterations service at Village Brides too and everything was perfect.
It was a lovely surprise to receive a 'lucky sixpence' in the post in the weeks leading up to the wedding and I did put it in my shoe - I think it must have contributed to our day turning out just perfectly.
Would definitely recommend Village Brides to anyone (and already have ;)) and can't thank Ramsey and Michelle enough for all their patience and support. Thank you for a fantastic experience.
