Hi Polly and team,

I just wanted to send you a couple of preview photos (photographers We are the Clarkes) I have which show off the stunning Jenny Yoo Liana dresses we got off you. We had our wedding on 26th October on a wet day but that didn’t dampen the party and I had so so many compliments on the girls’ dresses. If I get any more good ones I will send them through. 

Thank you again for such a nice, stress free experience!

Just emailing a massive thank you to you and your lovely team at NABBD, the bridesmaid dresses we got from you for my wedding on the 10th July were absolutely perfect and looked beautiful on the girls! Thank you for taking the time and effort (especially on our first visit where I think we were in your shop for more than 4 hours!) They were ordered and ready to collect so quickly and the materials were such high quality, and they complimented the Usher's suits perfectly!

I have been recommending you left, right and center to people (and clients) who are planning their weddings so no doubt I'll hear more great things about you! (If that's even possible!)

Once again, thank you so much! I've attatched a few photographs of the girls so you can see how amazing your dresses looked!

I just wanted to write a little note to thank Polly and the rest of the girls at NABBD for everything they did in the bridesmaid dress picking process. Polly has a fantastic selection of dresses and we had such fun trying them all on. We could not have been more delighted with the end result, the dresses were absolutely beautiful and the girls looked simply lovely. The flower girl dresses and pageboy outfits were also to die for and the little ones were thrilled with them. It was a pleasure working with you and I will be sure to recommend you to my other friends getting married.

Thank you again.

"Maria" by Mark Lesley in Bordeaux

"Thank you so much all your help at NABBD. It was an absolute pleasure shopping for the bridesmaids dresses at NABBD.
The Mark Lesley bridesmaid dresses were absolutely stunning and the girls were thrilled! They fitted perfectly and never even need any alterations.
There have been so many complements about the dresses and I have already happily recommened NABBD to other brides to be!
I was a bit stressed about finding the right colour for our autumn wedding, there was absolutely nothing on the high street, and I was so impressed by the selection of beautiful dresses and hundreds of different colours at NABBD. In the end the colour and dresses were just perfect."

Wearing True Bridesmaids 'Pure Elegance' in Victorian Ameythst

Just wanted to thank you so much for all your help with the gorgeous bridesmaids dresses. I have had so many comments saying how amazing they looked (because they did!!!). The colour was perfect and worked so well with the flowers and country theme. Also the ladies loved wearing them which makes a huge difference as they were comfortable and looked great.

You, Emma, Katia, everyone were amazing. You treated us so well, your boutique is the nicest one I've seen and your service was fab (including the bubbles!). I can't recommend you highly enough and have already told my friends who are getting married to pay you a visit.

Wearing True Bridesmaids 'Pure Sophistication' in Teal

The colour was just perfect and look fantastic in photos and with the jewel coloured flowers- attached. We had blue skies and sunshine on the day which really set the dresses off. They had the wow factor and the girls were so delighted with the service, experience finding the dresses (we had been searching for a year!!) and the look of the dresses on the day. They were beautiful.
