I bought my beautiful wedding dress and bridesmaid dress from Claire at To Have and to Hold and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Claire was the first dress shop owner to acknowledge that it is a bit odd taking your clothes off in front of a complete stranger and so put me completely at ease! Over the year of contact we had Claire was a great source of support, always happy to see me, my friends and mum and always welcoming. If you are looking for an amazing wedding dress and top class customer service then look no further!!!.
For a girl who is not comfortable in a dress or believe I look good in one I am amazed I actually found and bought a wedding dress. This is all thanks to Claire’s expertise and honesty. She was understanding about my concerns and I can, without boasting, say I feel beautiful in my wedding dress. Thank you Claire you are a true professional and I would and will recommend you to future brides to be. Xx
After getting engaged in March 2013 and setting for the date for November 2013 my attention quickly turned to finding my dream dress. A few years ago I set up home in West Midlands with my now husband and after initially looking at dresses nearer to home I decided I wanted to go back to my roots and involve my Mum. We filled our day appointments to go to a number of local bridal shops and Claire was the first after my sister had told me about her stunning displays. Off we trotted and by the second dress in I was done. Still Claire made me continue trying on dresses just so I knew I was making the right decision. Other shops I am sure would take your money and run. From start to finish Claire was patient, helpful, always on the end of the phone and made the experience one I will never forget. Her attention to detail is second to none. After watching the BBC Watchdog programmes about rip off bridal shops and ill fitting gowns I have to admit I was a little worried as I am a lot smaller on top than bottom but I was worrying about nothing. My gown fitted perfectly, was secure and that’s all thanks to Claire and her team. I can not recommend To Have & To Hold enough. They cater for a wide range of budgets, have lots of beautiful dresses and accessories to die for (I also got my headpiece from Claire). I am only sad that I can’t buy a wedding dress every year.
