Here is what our Brides say about us


"From the moment I made contact with Katie, the whole experience was like a magical dream. I had experienced a nightmare in a well known wedding shop in Ongar and had lost faith in finding a dress for a big girl! 

Katie and her team of angels changed all that. There was no rush or pressure and everything was explained in detail.

She allowed you time to try on, wear it, walk around in it, sit in the dress, you were taken care of the whole time.
When you make a decision, you then make appointments that are centred around when you can get in and they even kindly changed one for me. They held on to the dress after the final fitting for me until I could pick it up just before the day. They took every detail into account to ensure the dress was right and the right height/length. Anita the seamstress was quiet, patient and sincere and took her time to ask and listen. She also explained why she was pinning etc.
I loved my dress and the whole experience with the wedding dress angels at 'The Wedding Centre'.
They allow plenty of time for every appointment, explain each part and answer your questions, they are honest if something is not right or cannot be done or changed. Their honesty and passion shines through everything they do.
They even made a silk corsage for my disabled mum as I was struggling to get one one in the right colours in time and as a gift to her, it made her feel special too.
I highly recommend any lady looking for a dress and a wonderful memorable caring experience to go to these ladies as they will do all they can to ensure it is. Thank you 'The Wedding Centre"

"I ordered my wedding dress from The Wedding Centre in 2014 for a 2016 Wedding. I saw their stall at a bridal show and loved the dresses and so made an appointment. I live in Hemel and had been past the shop many times but for some reason had not thought of looking for a dress there. 

When I attended my appointment the staff were great. As well as letting my try on the dresses that I liked, they also made suggestions based on my budget and venue and I fell in love with a dress I wouldn't have thought to try on myself seeing it on the hanger but was everything I wanted. 

I then had a long wait until nearer the wedding before I returned to try my dress on and arrange my fittings. The staff were incredibly helpful at every appointment. Completely unflappable even when I had put on weight and the dress wouldn't do up! I went to appointments with my mum and the staff always looked after her. 
The alterations lady was also fab. Taking up my hem and letting out the back of my dress. 

I also got my flowers from Katie Picco next door. Again service was amazing. Lucinda understood perfectly what I wanted and we had so many compliments on the day. 

I cannot recommend them highly enough".

"Just had an appointment at the wedding centre and it was fantastic! Katie and her daughter were so lovely, chatty and helpful! I found a dress I absolutely love and want it in white - only an hour or so after my appointment Katie sent me a message to confirm that the dress came in white!
Brilliant service! Will be back and will recommend to all my engaged friends!"

"My first visit was yesterday, and what a success I FOUND MY WEDDING DRESS! 
The lady was so helpful you can tell she has been in the business for years and knows exactly what she is talking about. Even after visiting 2 other bridal stores she allowed me to come back and try on my desired dress a 2nd time, which I was very grateful for considering she had other customers to attend too. 
Such a wonderful lady and extremely helpful. Thank you"
