Testimonials

"Purchased 4 bridesmaid dresses for my lovely bridesmaids. Our experience was fantastic. The shop was beautiful, lovely and clean and smelt amazing. We had a lovely warm welcome and was made to feel at home with refreshments and snacks. Would highly recommend."

"Absolutely loved visiting Lily Francis Bridal! From the second we walked in we were welcomed and the atmosphere was so relaxed and friendly! The showroom with the dresses was so well presented and there are so many gorgeous dresses! Love the set up of the shop too, and it was so clean and fresh! After visiting another bridal shop, I wasn’t sure if I was going to walk in and find the one as I knew what style of dress I wanted.. but I found the dress and said Yes!! Michelle was so attentive and answered all my questions happily, giving me lots of options! So happy with my gorgeous dress and can’t wait for my wedding day to show it off! Thankyou so much for such a special day!"

"Fabulous selection of bridal wear, my daughter tried on several different styles. Michelle couldn't have been more attentive and the whole experience was truly magical. Highly recommended."

"After disappointing trips to other bridal shops, I came across Lily Francis Bridal and found my absolute dream dress! Michelle was helpful, kind, honest and accommodating. The entire experience was relaxing and exciting and the dresses in the shop are absolutely stunning. I would recommend all brides to take the time to visit Lily Francis and try on the large variety of stunning dresses and experience the relaxed atmosphere."

"I visited Michelle at Lily Francis with my 16 year old daughter for ideas on colours and styles for a prom and bridesmaid dress. I was a little apprehensive as I didn't want my daughter to feel pressured or self conscious; I need not have been, we had a wonderful experience. Michelle gave us lots of space to look around and chat with each other, whilst being available to help when needed. She was sensitive and able to offer advice when the dresses were tried on and during the final fitting. The shop itself was calm and relaxed, and my daughter and I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would happily recommend Lily Francis for wedding and prom dresses."

"Absolutely wonderful, Michelle you are brilliant. I couldn’t have imagined a better experience at a bridal shop. Good selection of dresses, the shop itself is beautiful, felt instantly at ease! Highly recommend."

"I visited Lily Francis Bridal on Saturday to view their collection of hair pieces ready for my wedding. Michelle was very friendly and welcoming from the minute I stepped foot in the shop. The shop was very clean and was a lovely relaxed environment. Michelle was very helpful when I was choosing the correct hair piece to go with the hairstyle and veil type I had chosen. I would recommend the shop to any bride looking for a great experience."

"We've been to Michelle's store looking for a bridesmaids' dress, and our experience has simply been amazing. Michelle has been very helpful from way before the appointment date, keeping us updated by email and making sure all our questions were answered. The place looks gorgeous and is very spacious, which makes trying dresses on a real a pleasure; the bridesmaid selection was diverse and we ended up having a real struggle making up our minds as to which dress to get: so many gorgeous gowns! There are endless colour options to choose from, and many adjustments can be made (changing the style of a belt, adding a strap, etc) - the dress is taylor made to your needs! I already have my wedding dress but also couldn't help notice how beautiful Michelle's bridal selection is - I would recommend her shop to anyone looking for a bride's dress, bridesmaid's dress or prom dress!  Thank you again Michelle for your kind welcome, and we wish you all the best!"

"Michelle was so warm and welcoming. She took all the time we needed, never rushed. We got to spend as long as we wanted looking at the dresses and love the way we could magnet mark the ones we liked for me to try on. Then Michelle listened, so well, took on board each dress tried she took what I liked and found a few additional tries as she knew her collection so well. Michelle is highly knowledgeable about her collection and has chosen her designers carefully so they all work to UK standards for all who work on the dresses. Absolutely 5*. Thank you so much Michelle!"

"Michelle was so helpful when I visited in respect of obtaining an evening gown which didn't resemble a bridesmaid's dress. She has so much patience and many styles which can be mixed and matched with 150 colours to choose from. I ended up ordering 2 and will return for a shorter style cocktail dress. Her prices are very reasonable and I also saw a large selection of bridal gowns. I would highly recommend her for a visit - easily accessible, plenty of parking and she will meet at most times to include evenings and weekends - by appointment. She also has a seamstress for alterations - a real gem!"

"I went there recently to find my wedding dress. There are a wide variety of styles to try, all good quality but reasonable prices (including some from local designers). Michelle was friendly and knowledgeable and made it an enjoyable experience. I've found a beautiful dress and I can't recommend this place highly enough!"

"I went to a couple of other bridal shops and was made to feel uncomfortable as an older bride. Michelle made me feel really comfortable the dresses were beautiful and we had such a lovely time. I now have my dream dress and can’t thank Michelle enough for making all 8 of my bridesmaids welcome and help me choose. Thank you so much. Can’t wait to come and try it on again when it arrives."

"I had such a lovely experience at Lily Francis Bridal! It was so relaxed and Michelle made my experience of trying wedding dresses on just perfect. I tried a fair few dresses on and nothing was too much trouble. I’m very pleased I found my dress with Lily Francis Bridal."
