Fairytale Bride is the most happy, welcoming and e
Ladies I could not recommend enough! Buying a dress over the pandemic I was worried some of the magic might have been lost. However Alison and Charlotte were fantastic and attentive from the off and made sure I had the full experience despite the restrictions. Alison and Charlotte listened to exactly what I was looking for and with their expertise helped me find the perfect gown. Also to mention - the new store is modern and gorgeous! The ladies did a fantastic job with the renovation and it all adds to the experience. Essex ladies, THIS is the shop to get your wedding dress!

This place is EVERYTHING!
I visited last year to choose my dress. They have the most beautiful selection of dresses. I walked in & explained what I wanted & they pulled off the rail my perfect dress. Alison & Charlotte couldn’t have been more helpful & patient. I tried on a tonne of dresses & ended up going back to the first one picked of the rail for me. They made the whole experience so personal too, a little welcome sign & some flapjacks. We felt so at ease & had such a fun time. I will never forget the experience & I thank them for making it so perfect. Even their communication was amazing the whole time. My dress arrived during lockdown and they hand delivered it to my parents house. Please visit this shop if you are looking for your wedding dress - you won’t regret it! Thank you again Alison & Charlotte x

I recently bought my wedding dress, veil and bride
I was extremely nervous to start wedding dress shopping as I previously had a really bad experience at another shop which had put me off shopping completely. But as soon as I found Fairytale Bride, it was the complete opposite! Alison & Charlotte run this beautiful boutique and they are the loveliest people you'll ever meet. They are so patient, understanding, and made me feel so comfortable. I didn't really have a clue as to what style of dress I wanted but I didn't need to worry as they had an amazing collection of dresses with lots of different styles for me to try on! Their service is so personal and I love that you get the whole boutique to yourself with their full care and attention. It was just magical! Thank you so much Alison & Charlotte, I will never forget how amazing my bridal appointment was and you have made me the happiest bride ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! xxxxxxxx

Cannot recommend this beautiful boutique enough!!
I found my dream dress at Fairytale Bride recently and from the moment I contacted them to book in, I knew I'd found the perfect place! My appointment was like a dream and they made it so personal which meant alot to me and my mum. Alison & Charlotte were incredible with helping me find the perfect dress and they weren't pushy at all, which I had experienced at other wedding shops in Colchester. They were both so supportive and helpful and their collection of dresses are so beautiful!! I am a UK size 16 and in other shops this made me feel like I was much bigger due to the fact that they seemed to only have size 10s and 12s to try on. But not at Fairytale Bride as they have a huge range of sizes which made trying on, so much better and it made me feel so much more confident. Thank you again Fairytale Bride, I honestly couldn't of asked for a better experience and one I will never ever forget. Lots of love, Millie xxx
