Julie and Alison deserve this award as they have provided such stellar customer service to every bride I have encountered. The attention to detail is the best. I know that my wedding is not until October this year but I have been in touch with the girls and every time I meet with them, they are always ready to give me very helpful advice! 
Danielle Harrison 
 
The ladies of AJ Bridalwear are worth their weight in gold! A fantastic experience and I wouldn't have bought my dress anywhere else! They are genuinely excited for you and make you princess for the day...thank-you!

I wanted a 2nd dress for evening and they talked me out of buying one . I still got to try on lots of dresses including my original dress and had a lovely time and was still made to feel special. A lovely group of ladies who I'd recommend to anyone bride . 
 
Shirley Hetherington 
 
The service received at AJ Bridlewear was utterly outstanding. The staff went out of their way to give an incredible choosing experience. Their knowledge and expertise enabled the perfect dress to be found. Their empathy with health requirements went above and beyond. The inclusion of parents choosing a dress to be tried on was a special touch. Their interest in the whole wedding was touching and their genuine delight when they saw the wedding photos. All these elements add up to the perfect shopping experience for a very special occasion. 
Joanne Dodds 
 
These girls are the best in the business, I went in there with my fiance for her fitting and I was adamant it wasn't my time to find a dress. I was so upset that I had bad experiences elsewhere I just didn't even want to look for one. My wife had such a lovely experience, I ended up walking out with my dream dress that day and it wasn't even my appointment. They love what they do, they are very professional, fabulous personalities, amazing service. 
Claire Hanson  
 
The ladies at AJ were just outstanding. I wanted to buy my dress from them before I'd even found it. 
Claire Cook 
 
Amazing ladies who know their stuff, very helpful and friendly, honest and not pushy. 
Jen Lowden 
 
First class service from first class team! So patient and helpful, picking up on my likes and dislikes with no question! Perfect dress choice! 
Lesley Gibson 
 
The girls are fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble for them totally outstanding. 
Leanne Darling 
 
From the moment I stepped into the shop they made me feel so at ease and could tell I was nervous. They offer such a personal touch and really know their stuff! They knew what dresses would suit my body type and skin tone, and incidentally I chose a dress they picked out for me and it was something I probably would never have picked myself! Outstanding service and lovely women! 
Alison Clark 
 
They are the nicest most genuine ladies you could possibly meet, they are amazing and made my dress shopping day the most memorable day ever, I would recommend anyone to visit their shop. 
 
Their customer service is second to none and they always make you feel so so welcome. 
Keeley O'Connor 
 
Amazing ladies who made my whole finding the dress experience stress free. My wedding was booked with only 6 months planning time. Lots of shops said it was not possible or I would have to buy off the rail.  
 
AJ took the time to find out about me and my wedding dreams before assisting me to find my perfect dress and went above and beyond to get it in time. They squeezed me in for fitting when it was suitable for me. An amazing stress free service with lots of smiles from everyone. Thank you and good luck 
Philippa Edmondson 
 
The service you get from the moment you walk in on your first appointment to the day you walk out the door with your dress is second to none. 
 
I loved every moment with AJ Bridal always so warm and loving they feel like family and the dresses they sell are stunning! They are by far the best in the North East! 
Zoe Mckenzie 
 
Outstanding service from beginning to end. Very helpful, friendly and know exactly what a bride wants. 
Sarah Dodds 
 
The ladies went above and beyond to find me the perfect dress. They put me at ease straight away and I couldn't recommend them enough! 
Leanne 
 
They are amazing very friendly experienced girls who go beyond expectations. 
Shirley Hetherington 
 
We arrived for our appointment and from the moment we entered we felt at home. Alison and Julie were so welcoming and obviously love what they do. We were given a guided tour around first and then asked to all have a look at dresses we liked. Dad was included and we all were amazed at the range and the wise words of advice Alison and Julie had as we made our selections. I thought it was particularly good that Dad was encouraged to be part of it. 
 
Parents were then sat comfortably as the girls went behind the curtain for the first dress, sniffing was heard and the reveal was dramatic. 
 
The girls encouraged Amy to try on some designs she was unsure about, showed how strapless gowns could be altered showed suitable veils and unsuitable veils and throughout the process demonstrated not only their vast knowledge but also care for the bride to be. 
 
It was a truly magical experience for all three of us and Amy made her choice with no doubt in anyone's mind. 
Amy has a medical condition which causes her tummy to swell but Julie and Alison were so understanding and knew just how to handle the situation with compassion and we all enjoyed a few laughs during the morning. 
This was undoubtedly one of the best shopping experiences we have all had. 
 
I am Mother of the Bride but would love to get married again after visiting this shop, to the same man I hasten to add! I know they would make me look the best I could and feel great too. 
 
Without doubt anyone shopping here could be guaranteed a wonderful experience and the board with all the Thank You cards and photos bear witness to that. 
 
Amy left the shop glowing which was lovely for us all to see and the girls have arranged to let her see herself in full regalia before the wedding as she lives 300 miles away and due to illness cannot easily travel up and down. I know we will need the tissues again. 
 
The additional service they offer is beyond measure. 
 
They are worthy of this award. 
Natalie Morrison 
 
I had the best experience at A.J. Bridalwear, they were focused on my wedding party and helping me find my dream dress. I found my dress on the first visit, ordered it and it was there 2 months earlier than expected. 
 
A.J. went above and beyond in their customer service to make sure i was happy at every point in the process. 
They also steamed my dress before the wedding and I picked it up the day before my wedding. 
 
I couldn't have wished for any more from my wedding dress buying experience, it was perfect and I am already recommending A.J. to my friends who are getting married next year. 
Tammy Middlemiss 
 
Alison & Julie were absolutely fantastic! They made me feel special when I was trying dresses on and nothing was a hassle for them. They let me take my time trying each dress and they listened to me and helped me choose the most perfect dress and veil. 
 
They also made the day exciting and special for my mam and sister and they also loved it. They also made my young niece and nephew feel welcomed and made it a fun experience for them. Even after I bought the dress they were so helpful and welcoming with any requests I had. 
 
When I collected the dress they were so lovely and even made that experience exciting! They are genuinely lovely ladies and their customer service is the best I have ever experienced! I couldn't recommend them more. 
Vicky Rutherford 
 
I think they should win as I went to a few different places and no one made me feel as special as they did, but not just me who I brought with me also thy got everyone involved. 
 
They also helped me to pick the right dress. They gave me their opinion even if they didn't think I suited a certain style of dress, every girl wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day and I did with my beautiful dress they helped me find. 
 
They made me feel so comfortable and I have already said to a lot of people who are getting married to at least book an appointment with them as they are amazing. 
Hilary 
 
Alison and Julie managed to make choosing my wedding dress a fantastic experience. I hadn't been particularly impressed with other places I'd visited and had been quite disillusioned prior to going to visit. 
 
They were extremely personal, looked after my mam, listened carefully to what I wanted. They both worked so hard finding and letting me try on their dresses. On subsequent visits, they didn't push for a decision and allowed/ guided me in choosing a dress which made me feel like a bride and have a brilliant wedding day. 
 
Their bubbly personalities and obvious love of their job made the whole experience a delight. Thanks to both of them. l 
Mrs Karen Steel 
 
AJ bridal wear should win as I love this shop and now my niece is getting married and also purchasing a dress from here staff are fantastic. 
 
I also purchased my dress from here. I'm a very happy customer and would recommend A.J. Bridalwear to all future brides to be in the near future, what amazing lady's are in this shop. They help you every way possible, they make your day so special, and I'm so proud of them all, it made my day so special and thank them so much. It made my day, so staff will be getting my vote. 
 
Thank you all. Mrs K Steel xxx 
Sarah Bowden 
 
Amazing service from start to finish. A.J. Bridalwear was the first shop I had visited to look for a dress and my search stopped there. I knew I had found the right shop when I met Alison and Julie and found my perfect dress - Alison and Julie are such lovely ladies made me feel at ease and the whole experience stress free. 
 
They 100% deserve this award. I can't thank them enough from helping me find my perfect dress to having it cleaned and boxed up after my wedding. 
 
Keep up the good work ladies. I hope you win this well deserved award

Rachel Henderson 
 
Amazing women who went above and beyond to find the right dress for me. They were so welcoming and friendly and didn't rush or pressure me and found the perfect dress which was the 'one' and great value. 
 
Everyone loved the dress, I felt like a queen not just a princess and I'll treasure it always, I'd recommend them to anyone! 
Stephanie Zamoyski 
 
Julie and Alison have a unique gift of making a bride to be feel extremely special - they are like 2 fairy godmothers! We met Georgie at a later date, who is also very helpful and delivers excellent customer service. 
 
The team have an incredible skill of narrowing down the dresses in order to find 'The One', as well as making family and friends feel involved. 
 
Thank you so much again - I cannot sing your praises enough to people!! 
Laura Wilce 
 
Extremely friendly service made the potentially stressful task of finding a dress, shoes and a flower girl dress simple. The option for them to keep the dress was very helpful when I have pets. Would recommend to everyone. 
Helen McAvoy 
 
As soon as we walked through the door we knew we were onto something good. The selection was really big, the service was fantastic, and I wouldn't have gone anywhere else for my wedding dress. 
Lorna Burr 
 
They are wonderful ladies who make the whole experience as special and enjoyable as it should be. They take it in everything you say and what you like and then they pick something they think will look good on you and in they end they knew best. 
Charlotte Ridley 
 
Exceptional service from the moment you walk through the door, all the girls really put my mind at ease, going above and beyond to help me find my perfect dress. I really can't thank them enough for all their help and commitment. 
Catherine Goode 
 
The ladies made buying a dress such a lovely experience. They knew exactly what they were talking about and make me feel like their only customer. I can not wait to see my dress in their shop when it's ready! 
Natalie Bolger 
 
I still had a few shops to visit when I went to try on some dresses at AJ Bridalwear but I didn't even bother looking, they helped me find the perfect dress which I wasn't really looking forward to as I am not really a dressy kind of girl but they made the whole experience so easy, they even took my dress for the alterations and to the dry cleaners afterwards.

Very personal experience, make you feel at home and are very friendly to people with you as well as bride. If you cant find exactly what you they are very knowledgeable and great at picking other options for you to try which are right for what you are looking for and even helping to visualise any customising to it that you may want and for customising they use there knowledge to guide you towards making the best choice and give you various options. 
Amanda Grainger 
 
They made picking my wedding dress one of the best things about getting married. My sisters mother and mother in law all came along and they couldn't praise AJ Bridalwear anymore. 
 
Everyone's opinion mattered and they really listened to what I wanted. There was no pressure to make a decision right then. The service was so go my sister refused to go anywhere else but AJ Bridalwear for her wedding dress. 
Grace Rutherford 
 
So helpful and friendly from the minute I rang up to book an appointment. 
Jamie 
 
The ladies are amazing and made me feel so at ease and special. I've already recommended them to everyone I know. 
 
Their shop is beautiful full of gorgeous dresses! Can't recommend them enough! 
Stephen Robson 
 
Attention to detail and overall package from start to finish. Everything was easy and friendly couldn't have done anything more to improve on perfection. 
Kiera Bell 
 
I wouldn't go anywhere else!!! The most amazing people and amazing dresses!!!! Perfection!! 
Lise James 
 
Amazing! This was the fifth shop I had been to. I hadn't found the dress and was worried I wouldn't. Ali and Julie understood straight away what I was after.  
 
They were so warm and welcoming it was like having your beloved aunties helping you with your dress. That meant a lot as my Mom lives in Canada! Xx 
Susan Myers 
 
These ladies were so helpful and friendly. When I had a problem with my veil I took it back and they ordered me a brand new one without any fuss. They make you feel so special and just new which dress would suit straight away. Plus every time I went I got a lovely cuddle off Julie. They really deserve this award. 
Stephanie Fisher 
 
They were brilliant, very helpful with everything, really lovely ladies who actually want to help, can see their passion and love of their job. 
 
I would 100% recommend this shop to go for all bridal needs, helpful with small children on visits made you feel so comfortable and welcome.  
 
They should be awarded for their outstanding service. 
Joanne Dodds 
 
These girls deliver outstanding service, they made me feel so comfortable when I was so anxious and fearful of not being able to find my dream dress. 
 
They listened to me, understood me which lead them to find exactly what I was looking for and because of them, I can't wait to walk down the aisle in June. 
Abi Anderson 
 
They are amazing at what they do, nothing is too much trouble and they were incredibly helpful!!! 
Brenda Robson 
 
So friendly and helpful that nothing was a bother. They make you feel so special x 
Ashleigh Fawcett 
 
So friendly / went out of their way to help a pregnant lady find the dress of her dreams!!! 
Sharon Scott 
 
The lovely ladies of a and j bridal deserve recognition for all the time,care,honesty they put in to helping me with my wedding dress and my daughters bridesmaids dresses. 
 
Many years ago they helped my sister with her dress and so we returned when it was finally my turn. 
They are experts in their field and the knew exactly what style of dress would suit me even when I thought I was clueless. 
 
I didn't look at anyone else and picked my dress within my first appointment. 
Likewise my two daughters were made to feel l like royalty when it was their turn to choose so the whole experience was the best I would and could have hoped for. 
 
Their aftercare service has also been top quality they really do care for you. So this is a thank you from their 24th June 2017 girls Sharon.jade and Beth

The ladies at A.J. bridal are amazing. They are so informative and really take the time to get to know the brides and their weddings. They 100% understood my preferences and were able to find dresses I hadn't even considered. They really explore all options to make sure you get the perfect gown. They have so much time for brides and there.s no pressure to decide or buy there and then. I love how welcoming the shop is from the second you walk in. All my bridal party were given a lovely tea tray to enjoy while i tried dresses. 
 
I recently visited with a friend too who was looking for the perfect gown. We left the store and my friend decided she wanted to go back to try the dress again as it maybe the one. She rang A.J. not long after leaving and they offered her an appointment later that day, which would probably cause them to close later. However this was not an issue to the staff, they really do go above and beyond. 
 
It's so hard to put it into words how amazing the staff are. Every bride needs to visit A.J., it is by far the best bridal experience I had while choosing my gown. I recommend them to everyone because they are fantastic. 
Sarah Glister 
 
I cannot thank these ladies enough for the time and effort they put in to ensure I found my dream dress. From the moment I walked into this bridal shop with my Mam and 3 bridesmaids, we were greeted with such warmth and friendliness. 
 
I was very nervous about going dress shopping but with massive thanks to A.J. Bridal, I instantly felt at ease and comfortable and found the whole experience very exciting and most importantly found my dream dress. 
 
I had been to previous shops to look at dresses but the customer service was nothing compared to the minute I walked into A.J. Bridal. I can't thank them enough and would recommend highly to everyone. 
Amy Hetherington 
 
I have Crohn's disease which means that my weight fluctuates dramatically and at the start of the day I am flat tummied and by the end of a bad day look like I am about to give birth to triplets so getting a dress was not going to be easy. 
 
However AJ made it so easy! They guided avoiding very tight dresses and also steered with the idea of corset so I can open up when I bloat up and also made it so that the seamstress was on a shorter notice period for alterations so that the dress is the best fit for the day. 
 
They made myself and my parents feel so welcome and they were so understanding and caring. They allowed me, mum and dad to select dresses to try and it was just all so magical. 
Ruth Coates 
 
Me and my mum, found what we thought was my dream dress but in a small sample size in another shop. After ringing round we found A.J. bridal had it in my size so I could see how it would look in my size. 
 
We arrived half an hour before the shop shut, so only planed on trying on the one dress. My mum lives abroad and the staff went out of their way realising she would not be available to go shopping on other days. They encouraged us to stay and try on a few styles of dress, keeping the shop open nearly two hours late. 
 
Their advice was spot on, advising me on what suited my body shape. We found the perfect dress and I'm so great full my mum got to be part off it. They really do go that extra mile. 
Liane Wilce 
 
Both myself and my sister have recently bought wedding dresses, my sister bought hers from AJ Bridalwear whereas I bought mine elsewhere. I have to say the selection and service at this store is second to none, both of the ladies here seemed to genuinely care whether the selected dress was "the one". 
 
This did not feel like a cold business transaction like my own but rather an exceptional service from purchasing the dress to the actual day of the wedding. 
Lise James 
 
When I explained what I was thinking they seemed to get my taste and what would work got me straight away. We picked about ten dresses to try, but the second one I tried on at A.J.s was the one. They were genuinely excited when I picked my dress. 
 
Even though I had not met Ali and Julie before it was like having my two favourite aunties helping me with my dress. Nothing was ever a problem, they kept in touch. It was just a wonderful experience and completely stress free! Xx 
Cheryl Fowlie 
 
Alison and Julie were absolutely amazing they made me feel so welcome and comfortable being a let's just say a big girl!. They helped me me find my perfect gorgeous dress that made me feel and look amazing which I could never have thought possible after having a horrible experience elsewhere where I was reduced to tears. 
 
I can't thank these beautiful fabulous ladies enough for helping make our wedding day so special. I tell everyone I know who's looking for that perfect dress to go see them they are so warm welcoming funny absolutely fabulous ladies. 
Ashleigh Flaherty 
 
They made me feel amazing from the moment I walked in. I am plus size and very conscious of my weight but that didn't matter to them they told me how beautiful and looked and helped me every step of the way. 
 
Their dresses are amazing but it's the people who make it. The experience is one of a kind and I would recommend them to everyone! 
Gina Trick 
 
The ladies are amazing. You feel at home, confident, relaxed and special while you are there. 
 
They look after you from your first appointment right up to picking up your dress as if you are the only bride in the world. The choice of dresses is brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone. 
Danielle 
 
They are the most amazing woman ever they helped me so much at a wedding fair, and when I visited there shop they were amazing brutally honest which I liked.. showed me the best dresses for my body shape. Love the bones off them. 
Harriet Noble 
 
The most friendly honest and helpful bridal boutique I've ever been to! No pressure just honest opinion and friendly advice on making sure you are picking the right dress for the right reason! 
Jennifer Swanson 
 
From the first call to arrange an appointment to delivery of the wedding dress their attention to detail was absolutely fantastic. They made feel very special throughout. Nothing was a problem for them. Service was over and beyond what we had received anywhere else. 
Jamie Horner 
 
The ladies who work here are so lovely and make you feel at ease straight away. Amazing experience and beautiful dresses. I've recommended them to so many people already. I hope they win the award they definitely deserve it! 
Phillipa Firth 
 
Absolutely brilliant customer service, made me, my mum and mother-in-law feel so comfortable. I went in with an idea of what I wanted and came out with the absolute opposite dress and couldn't be happier with the dress that they helped me say YES to! 
Jenifer Simpson 
 
Perfect customer service from first meeting at wedding fair to trying on a dozen dresses then a dozen more times between the final 2! Patience and love for their work is at the heart of these ladies.... couldn't ask for more! Thank you! 
Brenda Robson 
 
I was a mature bride and very anxious about looking for a wedding dress but at AJ bridal wear they were so lovely and understanding . They weren't pushing me to get a dress I didn't think was right but still managed to make me feel special and kept telling me that I was the bride no matter what the age x I can't thank them enough x 
Kaylea Hewitt 
 
They made the experience enjoyable and not stressful at all. They were extremely helpful and felt like they went out their way to ensure you had the perfect dress. 
Sarah Hutton 
 
Alison, Julie and there small team are fantastic. From first point of contact to leaving the shop with my wedding dress I felt welcome, at ease and just had an absolute ball with these ladies. They are without a doubt the best bridal shop in the North East. 
Tracey Reed 
 
I went to 4 other bridal shops before A J Bridalwear. And I can hand on heart say the customer service I received from Julie and Alison was nothing short of amazing. They treat me like I was family, went above and beyond to get me my perfect dress. 
 
They were always happy and helpful every time I spoke to them. I cant recommend this shop enough. 
Kelly Fletcher 
 
After having a disastrous encounter at another bridal shop, Alison and Julie welcomed me with open arms. From that moment on, they were fabulous, from the moment I tried my first dress on, to collecting my dress the day before, they were professional and just lovely. 
 
I cannot express how amazing they made the whole process for me. 
Samantha Eungblut 
 
The ladies at AJ Bridal helped me with everything I needed to know and they helped me choose me wedding dress in 1 day. 
Sarah Lill 
 
They went above and beyond to help me find my dress, get it fitted, steam and ready for the big day.  
 
They were happy for me to visit whenever I wanted and were always so kind and supportive. Incredible service. 
Zoe Skillen 
 
If I could give a higher rating I most definitely would. Alison and Julie are absolutely amazing at what they do and more. They can't help you enough. Such lovely women and make you feel so comfortable. 
Lori Reay 
 
They knew what my perfect dress was before I did! Amazing and so friendly! 
Helen Hunter 
 
They are like family when you walk in, so friendly and welcoming... They listen to everything you want but also make you try outside the box, I was stuck between 2 beautiful dresses and couldn't decide so Julie went off and brought my perfect dress in. It was a perfect mix of the bits I loved on the 2 dresses. I will always remember my experience there and recommend them no end 
Lauren Jones 
 
I had a horrendous experience at a previous wedding dress shop. Julie sat me and my bridesmaids down with a pot of tea and waited until I was ready to try on some dresses. I must've tried on 20 or so and they kept the shop open after hours for me. Genuinely warm and caring the team at AJ bridal deserve to win! 
Helen Croft (Wilson) 
 
Such a dream team. They totally understood what I was after and that I was not wanting to take lots of time. It was fun and we had a laugh and they really cared. 
 
They met my daughter too and made her so welcome. Absolute stars. And the dress they selected for me was actually the first one I tried on.  
 
I love it and yesterday it was admired by all. Fantastic team work. 
Claire Everett 
 
They were really friendly, and made me feel at ease. I had no idea what style I was looking for and they were so patient. Really easy to talk to as if I had known them for years., I found the perfect dress and they did everything they could to help customise it to how I wanted it to be. Would thoroughly recommend them. 
Janice Raper 
 
Because they truly care about making your day special !!! 
Lily 
 
Amazing sense of humour & hospitality. 
Rebecca Wright  
 
The ladies in this shop are the most genuine and helpful ladies I've ever met! I'm a very self conscious person and these ladies made me feel like a million dollars! Full of compliments and gave me advice on what would.suit my body shape best! 
Samantha Daniels 
 
We had to bring our wedding forward due to my step dad being diagnosed with terminal cancer, not only were me and my partner getting married my Mam and step dad were too (2 weeks before us). 
 
They were amazing helping me choose the perfect dress and helping me get it altered on time. But to be honest it was the treatment my Mam got that particularly stood out she was adamant she wouldn't wear a dress for her own wedding as she said it wasn't a celebration due to the circumstances. 
 
The ladies at A.J. bridal persuaded her to try on a few dresses and in fact have her a wedding dress for free in case she changed her mind and wanted to wear one. In fact she did choose to wear it and looked beautiful on her special day. For all these reasons I don't think you could have got better service anywhere and would recommend A.J. bridal to anyone. 
Helen Murray 
 
I had been to a few bridal shops, and a few of which I was very disappointed with the service, the attitude etc. 
 
But A.J. Bridal spent so much time and effort with me, my family and friend. I was made to feel like royalty. Every appointment was on a one to one basis. 
 
When I chose my dress I had in my head what I'd suit, with being a busty lady I wanted to be covered up and thought that my figure would only suit one style. 
 
Julie asked me if she could pick a few dresses she thought would show off my figure in a flattering way. OMG the dress I chose was stunning. I feel like a beautiful bride and that's all thanks to AJ Bridal and their fantastic service. 
 
They deserve to win an award. I couldn't recommend them more to any of my friends and family. 
Laura Hobin 
 
Both Alison and Julie are possibly the nicest people I could have met when searching for my wedding dress! 
I was late for my appointment by 40 minutes due to traffic. Both ladies kept the shop open and made it all about me even when I offered to just pay and take the dress they insisted I tried it on. 
 
Alison even started to cry when I did because I was so over whelmed with how lovely my dress was and how nice they were to me! I've recommended them to many and will continue to do so! Amazing ladies and an amazing shop. 100% deserve to win again! 
 
Good luck ladies love Laura Hobin xxx 
Sarah Swanson 
 
AJ Bridalwear should win the award for outstanding customer service as they went above and beyond to help me choose my wedding dress. They were so kind and welcoming and nothing was a bother for them. My appointment even over ran but they stayed back after working hours to help me decide. 
 
From the moment I stepped foot in their shop their customer service was outstanding and the best I have come across. Even when we were let down by the bridesmaid dress shop they did everything they could to help me which they didn't need to and we appreciated it so much. 
 
I recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding dress and I am grateful for their help and honest opinion. 
Carol Johnson 
 
Nothing was too much trouble for the ladies at AJ's. They made us feel at home from the very start. We first met them at a wedding event and their down to earth approach was so refreshing. 
 
We were never rushed, always made welcome and given full attention at every appointment. We could not have hoped for any better service. We were almost sad to pick up the dresses as it meant we wouldn't see the ladies again...but we couldn't stay away and the day we dropped by to say thank you after the wedding, we were welcomed back with a big hug!! A fantastic experience from start to finish. 
Claire Clark 
 
The ladies helped me choose a dress that was everything I wanted and within my budget. It was then sent for alterations however when it returned the alterations weren't carried out properly and my dress was far too long 3 days before the wedding! 
 
The ladies told me not to worry they arranged for another seamstress to see me and alter the dress - free of charge. This was above and beyond in my eyes and I truly appreciated it as it could be ruined my big day. These ladies deserve every bit of recognition for what they do - Amazing!!! 
Dionne McClurg 
 
Alison and Julie offer a warm welcome. They were extremely helpful when I was picking out my wedding dress. When I changed my mind they were very understanding and offered me the chance to try on other dresses. 
 
They were always very professional. I couldn't recommend them new highly. As a low confident plus size bride to be they made me feel so comfortable and like the most beautiful bride in the world. 
 
Seeing my husband's face on our wedding day and hearing him say how beautiful I looked cemented my decision that I had chosen the right dress. 
Lauren Sherry 
 
They have been amazing. They knew exactly which dress would suit my figure and after being very patient while I tried on all the wrong ones, Julie brought in a dress that was not what I was looking for but fitted me like a glove and made me feel amazing. 
 
Thanks to A.J. Bridal Wear I did not have to traipse around and I found my dress on my first day of wedding dress shopping. Not many women can boast about that. We then went back a few months later and bought the bridesmaids dresses too. 
Kara Hall 
 
They made the whole experience of choosing a wedding dress for a very self conscious and nervous bride relaxed and fun. Alison and Julie were amazing from start to finish and have a genuine commitment to making sure very bride gets the right dress for them. 
 
They don't rush you at all and even made a lot of tea for my Mum and Sister to have while I was trying in as many dresses as I needed to be sure that the first one was 'the one'.

The ladies are so helpful and honest. They'll tell you truthfully on what they think the dress looks like on you. They don't seem like they are in the business for the money like some places I visited. They are there because they love what they do. 
 
They stock a lot of designs that other shops don't. If I didn't find out about them I would never have found my dream dress!

Could not ask for a more personal service!!!! Nothing is an issue and you're made to feel like one of the family. I fell pregnant after I paid the deposit on my dress and I think Alison and Julie were more excited than I was. It feels like you're shopping with friends, not bridal consultants xx

Excellent service! One of the most friendly, honest and helpful stores I've ever visited! The best advise and make sure you are picking the dress for the right reason.

I found my perfect dress! The biggest choice of my life (bigger than choosing the groom). They where so patient with me! Outstanding customer service by AJ BRIDAL.

So glad I chose A.J. Bridalwear for my dress and bridesmaid dresses, the lovely ladies put me at ease immediately and found me the perfect dress even when I didn't even know what I wanted! They were amazing from start to finish and thoroughly deserve to win this award.
