I found my Alfred Angelo dress online, and Love Me Do were the local shop that had it in stock. I had called ahead and told them which dress I was looking for, and they had got it out ready and waiting for my arrival. They listened attentively at my comments about all the dresses I was trying on, and brought some additional ones to my attention, throwing a real curve ball. They are very helpful and take a pic on a tablet so you can see bigger images of you in your top choices (always different from a camera to a mirror!). I never felt pressured to buy a dress, I didn’t feel looked down upon or rushed, all the girls are lovely, and they make this shop a wonderful experience.
They were supportive with my wedding dress, my bridesmaids dresses (I had an out of the usual bridesmaid drama, and they were still great and calm in a drama!) my tiara, and even gave me tips for the honeymoon, one of them turning out to be invaluable (you need a shawl in Sri Lanka!)! They gave me contacts to have the dress altered and also for the cleaning of the dress before and after. The system seems to be seamless, they take all the stress away for you.
The actual layout of Love Me Do Brides has a smaller area and sometimes you share the main ‘show’ area with another bride, which was a bit unusual. I was glad that I had been to another dress shops already, and had that 'individual' experience, but the team were hands down lovely and couldn't do enough for me. The glass of Bucks Fizz on your first visit is a little treat, and I enjoyed this special touch.
I can certainly recommend this lovely little shop to anyone looking to have a calm , happy, and lovely wedding dress shopping experience.
