What our customers say about Laura..
There is something extremely special about Bellissima Weddings(it even smells dreamy) and the hard work and dedication and desire to please every bride to be is clearly evident from Laura and her team. Every fitting with Laura was just how I hoped it would be – calm, relaxed and professional. She offered invaluable advice guidance and support along the way and it is no wonder that this beautiful shop continues to win the award and accolades that it does. – Milly Wilson

What our customers say about Amelia...

Belissima was the first place I tried on a wedding dress and although I had no idea what I wanted. Amelia was able to guide me to my perfect dress that suited me perfectly. There was no pressure to buy then and there and encouraged me to take the time to decide which I very much appreciated. I felt very valued as a customer and felt that everything they do is to make your time there as lovely as possible.

What our customers say about Jade...
After looking in 8 different shops all over Essex I thought I wouldn’t find the perfect dress. But after I walked in to Bellissima it was perfect from then on - the choice of dresses, the shop decor, the changing rooms, even the hand wash in the toilets was amazing! Jade my consultant helped me find my perfect dress in hardly any time at all and was so lovely. Couldn’t fault it at all!

What our customers say about Lily...

Bellissima was fantastic from the moment I arrived. I had been to a lot of shops already and always left feeling confused and to be honest, a bit deflated. The other shops I felt a lot more pressure to make sure I found the dress. When I went to Bellissima they were so warm and welcoming. I did not feel rushed, the shop was beautiful, the amount of dresses was incredible (it was like a maze!) Lily was lovely and I came out finding the one and felt over the moon!

What our customers say about Laura Sanders...
The ladies, especially Laura S, at Bellissima were amazing. Having visited many other shops, and having no luck, I can honestly say they gave me the best wedding dress experience. The were friendly and welcoming, endlessly patient, and extremely understanding of confidence issues that brides may have. Their knowledge and expertise is invaluable in understanding what you want (even if you think you don’t know). I wish every Bride could find a dress shop that offers the level of service that Bellissima does.

Lucy at Bellissima was so lovely and helped me find the one so easily, she helped me understand what style suited me even when it wasn’t what I thought I’d have. I also got my bridesmaid dresses from here and the service was amazing. The ladies at the shop made the experience so personal and found me a dress well within my budget with no pressure to try anything more expensive. My dress was fitted perfectly and the choice of both wedding and bridesmaid dresses was extensive!

What our customers say about Mel... 

I was recommended this shop by quite a few people and I can honestly say they did not disappoint! This was my first time trying dresses on so I was very nervous but from the moment we went into the shop I felt relaxed. I cannot thank Merelina enough for looking after us and helping find my dream dress. Right from the start Merelina listened to everything I wanted and we tried a variety of dresses but she saved the best til last and that was the one! Thank you Merelina I can’t wait til my dress comes in

What our customers say about Aimee...

I went by myself to pick my dress and Aimee was absolutely wonderful. She made me feel at ease which is important for me as I suffer from anxiety and have panic attacks a lot. The store is stunning, I could spend all day in there admiring it. Their communication is very good, I got a phone call as soon as my dress arrived; it was in perfect condition. If I was to buy another wedding dress I would not shop anywhere else, this store is fabulous and affordable.
