Every bride needs a fairy god mother and Fairy god mother mother! Jo and Patricia I am so grateful that I found you both! You were both so welcoming, friendly, kind hearted and knowledgeable! I can not thank you enough for ALL that you did for us leading up to and even on our day- thanks to the internet! The commitment to our day was incredible right down to the creation of my very own Cinderella boat dress! Our only regret is that we weren't able to fit you both in our suitcases you were really missed! Thank you so much for your truly individualised customer service you really made me feel like I was your only bride! (Although HOW you cope with more than one I don't know!)The quality of your dress selection in your boutique is both amazing and unique. Your skills regarding alternations and headpieces (and earrings- is there nothing you cannot do??!) are impeccable, I wish there were more stars to give you- 5 is not enough!!! THANK YOU Millions! lots of Love Mrs Goodyear! Ps..this is the only bridal shop a bride needs!!!!!!!

Jo, thank you so so much for my beautiful dress and all that you have done. I felt amazing the first time I tried the dress on (despite only just having had a baby) and you and your mum made my wedding shopping experience so special. Highly recommend you and sad I won't get to call in again! Xxxx

To Jo and Patricia, After my first foray into trying on wedding dresses, and being dressed in what can only be described as a big duvet, I was pretty convinced I was not bride material. The second was more flattering and there were a couple of lovely dresses that would do the business. However, my appointment at the Bridal Rooms really was a case of third time lucky. A certain Farage number had caught my eye on your FB page days before, so I was keen to see if it looked just a beautiful on as it did. It was divine. It was the dream dress. I was a bride after all. So thank you for having such beautiful attention to detail and selecting such gorgeous gowns! But a bigger thank you for being interested in how it complemented the rest of the wedding, from contacting your Ronald Joyce supplier and sourcing the bridesmaid dresses, saving the endless journeys back and forth to the nearest supplier in Cornwall, to designing and creating the perfect veil alternative, decorative comb, and of course seeing me through bottomgate! You went above and beyond and I will be extremely grateful. Love Cat - x

I absolutely loved going for my fittings and getting to know Jo and her Mum Patricia. They made me feel incredibly welcome and Jo did a fantastic job of making the my sample dress fit like a dream. I highly recommend the Bridal Rooms.

Where to start! From the minute I walked into the shop, Jo and her mum were amazing. The shop is beautiful, and you really feel like you can see and touch the dresses, without they all being hidden away in plastic! I fell in love with my Ian Stuart dress and bought my veil and hired my petticoat from Jo. She also did all my alterations, which were incredible! On my wedding day, everybody was talking all day about how fantastic my dress was and how it was the nicest wedding dress they'd ever seen - I am definitely an extremely happy customer! Thank you so much Jo and Mum :) x

Dearest Jo and mum, I wanted to write and thank you for helping me find my beautiful dress! You made me feel wonderful.... like the only bride in the world. Your shop is second to none and I would happily recommend you to anyone. You offered professional and 'honest' advice, when I almost chose the wrong colour dresses for my bridesmaids. They looked truly stunning too, after lots of panicking (on my part) with alterations. You were calm and lovely throughout. The choice of dresses in the shop are so lovely and you had mine picked for me as soon as I walked in. It was perfect and so was our wedding day. Thanks again. Emma xxxx

Hi Jo, The day was perfect and the weather warm and sunny( very unusual for the North West). Everybody commented on my outfit, even the vicar said wow. I felt like a million dollars and this was only possible because you knew the perfect outfit for me. I would like to thank you again for finding it and convincing me about the hat. A very proud mother of the Groom.

Dear Jo, Our wedding day went amazingly and even the rain didn't dampen our spirits. We really did have the best day, I only wish we could do it all again! I wanted to send a card to thank you for all of your enthusiasm, kindness and help you gave me in the build up to the wedding. I am so glad I bought my beautiful dress from you and your lovely shop and I will always treasure the memeories of coming in with my entourage: having my fittings and trying on your beautiful dresses. I tell everyone that my first dress experience was like something out of a movie, it was just perfect, and that is down to you and your lovely mum, so thank you. You are a special person Jo, and will always be thought of with a smile. Love &Hugs, Hannah (and George) x

I went to the Bridal Rooms first of all when I started looking for my wedding dress, then went to several other places, then ended up going back to Jo (and buying the very first dress I had tried on)! I found Jo to be so helpful and totally honest. As a slightly older bride I was very cautious about the type of dress I wanted, and Jo's advice was spot on. Her alteration skills (and patience) were second to none as well - I'm only 5'2" and a curvy size 12/14!. I really did feel like a Princess on my wedding day, thank you so much Jo, you're a star!

Jo at The Bridal Rooms of Wellswood is amazing! She made the whole experience so wonderful and special, exactly how it should be! After going to a few other shops, I knew I wanted to buy my dress from Jo, so I went back for a second appointment, which was just as great as the first time! I have now ordered my Tara Keely dress and I couldn't be happier. Jo has been so helpful every step of the way and I honestly couldn't imagine buying my dress from anyone else! Now I just can't wait to try it on again!

I am writing to say a big thank you to Jo and Jo's mum at Bridal Rooms of Wellswood for making the purchase of my wedding gown such a pleasurable experience. I visited several other bridal shops and was losing heart on finding that unique special gown for me, until I walked into Bridal Rooms and was met by Jo who was friendly, helpful and non-pushy. This letter stands to commend on the outstanding service and attention to detail provided by Jo throughout during my entire experience of dealing with Bridal Rooms, from selecting the dress of my dreams, alterations and fittings, selecting the bridesmaids dresses and having my headpiece specially made by Jo herself. The whole process went without a hitch, with all promised dates and deadlines met. May I thank you again and wish you the best for the future. The bridal world needs more shops like yours! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bridal Rooms.

I wanted to write and thank you for giving me and my best girls such an amazing experience at your beautiful shop on Saturday. Even writing this now, I am filled with butterflies! It was so lovely and you made the experience so special for us all. After visiting two other bridal shops on the same day, although nice, neither of them came even slightly close to the warmth we all felt with you. You made me feel completely comfortable, as well as the girls,and you have such beautiful dresses! Thank you again Jo, it really was so special and something I will remember for ever.

My Experience at the Bridal Rooms of Wellswood was second to none and I truly felt like a bride the moment I walked in the door. Jo provided such a professional and personal service & took time to go through every detail of my wedding, putting me at ease and making sure that above all, I had fun! The selection of dresses were diverse and and more exciting than anywhere else I'd been and after trying on an array of stunning gowns Jo helped me to find my dream dress! Jo even made my handmade hair accessories, using the same roses from my dress and customised a stunning Parisian style bolero to give me a different look for the evening. I felt like a true Vogue bride on my wedding day and I can honestly say the Bridal Rooms of Wellswood is a must for any bride that wants a bespoke & unique experience with a warm & personal touch. Thank you from the bottom of my heart :)
