Everything You Need Under 1 Roof

Thank you Chloe at Birchington Brides, I found my dress last week and brought my family today to see it today. The selection of dresses was amazing, different styles for everyone, and Chloes patience and help when trying on styles was perfect, ive chosen a dress that she picked out, shows she listens to what you want and then picked out the perfect style! 
Her help with accessories and bridesmaid dresses was invaluable today and we cant wait to come back later in the year for measurements!!!

Walked into birchington brides today with my mum and had no appointment and wasn't sure what we need to do, but on arrival we were greeted by Chloe who was so helpful and let me try on dresses, which I was really happy about. Chloe was so lovely and friendly really put us at ease, they have gorgeous dresses and I loved my experience there today.

All Access

I only wish I'd heard about this shop before I'd bought my dress! Excellent service and by far the most helpful and genuine in comparison to a number of regional bridal shops. Can't wait to wear my accessories from here in a few weeks time! Thank you BB!

Deciding Between 2 Dresses!

Experienced Knowledge

Chloe made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I liked that you could look through the dresses on your own first and pick a few to try on, and then Chloe would get a feel of what you liked and got a few more that she thought I would like. Turns out I found the dress for me out of the ones she suggested! Was a lovely experience, thanks!

Relax...You're At Birchington Brides

This was the 1st shop I visited, being plus size I had many concerns & put it off for too long! All staff were so very reassuring, friendly & attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Chloe was amazing she recommended a dress to flatter my curves & added a unique twist to my dress!!! 1st class, personal service with no hard sell, I cannot thank you enough xx

Service From Friends

Couldn't be happier with my experience at Birchington Brides, I was slightly nervous about the whole thing but from the time I got to the shop with my 2 friends who were also brides I felt relaxed. Nothing was too much to ask and Chloe and Anna were brilliant with everything. By the time we left I felt like I had known them for years and felt so comfortable with everything. I would highly recommend having a look as the options are endless, defiantly book to avoid disappointment. I'm looking forward to the next visit

Fully Catered

Me and two other brides to be had a lovely day today at birchington brides. From the time we walked into the shop until we left we were looked after by Chloe and Anna. They couldn't of done any more than what they did from helping us pick dresses to trying them on and keeping us topped up with refreshments. There was also a wide variety of dresses and accessories for all different tastes. I would highly recommend for any bride to be to pop in and have a look around.

Curvy Girls Warmly Welcomed

Visited the shop on the 24/01/17 and dealt with Chloe. We were instantly made to feel comfortable and welcome. Being a bigger bride I thought that there wouldn't be much choice but was pleasently supprised with the variety. Chloe listened to what I wanted but also put her ideas in without being too pushy like some bridal shops can be. Very informative when it came to bridal packages and happy to say I found a dress that suited me perfectly. Would like to say a massive thank you to Chloe and would reccomend to my other friends who are getting married.

Nothing Is Too Much Effort

The staff were so lovely and helpful as I had picked my dress but found out a few months later I was pregnant. I phoned them up to tell them and they fitted me in straight away to make sure my dress would be ok for the wedding. Found out that it wouldn't be ok and had to start from the beginning. They had all the time for me and I found the next perfect dress. I picked my dress up this afternoon and cannot wait to wear it for my wedding on tuesday. Thank you so much to all of you. You made me feel welcome and that nothing was a problem would defiantly recommend you x

Surprises Round Every Corner

My sister had made an appointment for me at Birchington Brides for Saturday, where we were warmly welcomed by the lovely Nicola. I tried on about 7 different dresses, and every single one of them looked fabulous! I was put in dresses that I never thought would suit my body shape. The whole experience was amazing! Can't wait to go back with my bridesmaids for the second appointment in November! Thank you ladies, see you soon! Xxx

All In One Place!?!?

Had my first dress fitting today just wanted to say how lovely Fran was she made me feel so special and was so accommodating to us. She didn't rush us and had all the answers to our questions. I love my dress and love how I have been able to make it my own with her help. We also had my finance's suit fitting well that went perfectly aswell. Sorting both things under one roof is a big help. The suit we chose Is lovely and again the service is just so well thought out. I cannot wait to go back for my second fitting.

On Another Level

 went with my future Daughter-in-Law her Mother and Grandmother to see the bride choose and try on wedding dresses we were taken into the dress room what a selection so many to choose from.  Fran told us pick as many as you want to for trying on we all choose 2 dresses each for the Bride to try on then we moved to the fitting area, very comfortable where we had refreshments.  When the Bride decided on her dress Fran demonstrated how it could look with different veils and headdresses she looked stunning and Fran made our day special, a day I will remember as much as the wedding.

Couldn't Have Asked For More

The suits were wonderful, they all looked brand new. I cannot tell you how proud I was and happy to see them, and especially Pete look so handsome on the day. Since we had family coming over at the last minute from Australia and the Wedding was in France, it was tricky to organise but you were so helpful and organised and everything went without a hitch. We would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of getting married. Thanks again.
