I had known what dress I had wanted to wear for my wedding since I was a little girl and Shades of White made all my dreams come true. I was so lucky to have two dresses for my wedding and the ladies at Shades of White worked like magical sewing fairies to carry out my adjustments and make my dresses fit like a dream. Every time we visited the ladies couldn't of been more welcoming and kind to me and who ever I took with me. They made us tea and advised and guided us to create just the look i had always dreamed of. I got everything from shades of white from my veil to my jewelry because there is simply no where else to go to find your dream wedding look. I am one very happy married lady all thanks to the miracle working bridal fairies at Shades of White. I am forever grateful. x [Read less]
I've just been in to Shades of White to try on wedding dresses for the first time. Helen was amazing from the moment we walked through the door and made me feel so comfortable! In the end, I chose the second dress that I tried on, as Helen's expert eye really tied everything together with a belt, headpiece and veil. I could not be happier with my decision! Thank you!

Shades of White is a beautiful shop with an amazing selection of dresses. It is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for your prefect wedding dress. Firstly the shop is in a stunning location, overlooking the River Great Ouse. Inside the layout is spacious, with two changing rooms. The ladies in the shop were so friendly and welcoming. Wedding dress shopping can be a daunting and stressful experience, but I was instantly put at ease.The dresses are arranged into the various styles, which makes it easy to navigate and find the types of dresses you want to try on. I had been to more than my fair share of bridal shops and was beginning to lose hope of finding 'the one'. I selected six dresses to try on, a couple of which were in the sample sale. I knew as soon as I tried my dress on that it was the one for me. The sample size was too big, but it was clipped and pinned to allow me to see how it should look when fitted correctly. I absolutely love my dress, and can't wait to try it on when it arrives in store. I can't recommend Shades of White highly enough. [Read less]
Me, my Bridesmades and my mum had the most amazing time at Shades of White on Monday. Firstly we were so impressed and comforted by the lady at the wedding fair at the holiday inn making us feel so excited for the whole try on process and booking the appointment a breeze. We were excited mostly for this one! After a day of dress shopping previously with overpriced dresses in one shop, and an overly agressibly pushy sales woman in another it was so refreshing to walk into the tranquil and friendly place that Shades of White is. (Mum was impressed even with the coffee at the start so we knew we were at home!). I don't recall the lady's name but the lovely girl looking after us was incredibly attentive, no ask too big. We found her incredibly helpful throughout the entire try on session adding her input in the best way possible but while allowing us to create our own opinions and experience. When I found THE dress she was amazing letting me wander around and really get a feel for it lots of pics and loads of excitement all round. We even managed to find the perfect shoes and accessories as a huge possibility too! My bridesmaids love their dresses too and her help with visualising the final colours and materials made it all so much easier. We left with huge smiles all round! The choice of dresses are amazing and really something for everyone, incredible quality and some really unique details all for such a reasonable price! We expected double of other shops.. but it just showed the other shops to be very over priced. QUALITY, CLASS AND CARE would be my 3 WORDS to describe. I can't believe how happy you have made me. You made me feel like a bride when I was left so confused over my choice previously. I can't rave enough. Thank you so so much!
I've just purchased my Dress from Shades of White and I was so happy to find this place. I had been to a few different bridal shops and found some awful, some lovely but mostly disappointing so I was really happy that Shades had bigger sizes to try on and a great selection in a relaxed atmosphere. I didn't have much hope on my first visit and just thought I'd give it a go. Hollie was great at letting us look but also advising. She also provided me with a great story of trying on a sheer skirt as a cape! After the cape I found one I really liked that was similar to my vision and they suggested customising it slightly to make it more personal to me. I wasn't ready to commit as I hadn't done any dress shopping with my mum and they didn't pressure me at all although highlighted that they had a short time promotion on. Luckily I was able to return with my mum and order my dress the following Saturday (even if I did try on one last one, just to check)! Can't wait for my dress to arrive now! [Read less]
