Well, I can’t give enough praise. Cath and her mum Pat are the loveliest people you would ever wish to meet.

 

The dresses are beautiful and there are so many styles to explore. Cath put me at ease and made the experience so fun and enjoyable with zero pressure. Cath was also helpful with picking out dresses incorporating all the bits I wanted.

 

I can’t thank Cath enough and would HIGHLY recommend this store to anyone.

Cath and her mum did a great job trying to find the best dress for me with such a little notice given. I was leaving the country following day for my wedding and due to the pandemic, I was left with very little choice as most of the other shops are still either closed, out of business or high street shops won’t allow you to try anything on.

All the social distancing rules were followed, we wore face masks while trying the dresses on and temperature check on arrival made me feel very safe and protected. The shop was spotlessly clean too.

They started with asking questions about what I would like, what day is going to be like, what the groom wearing and based on that they gave me several options of dresses, I tried them all on, liked many of them but I really loved one. I was a bit afraid going on my own as was worried I would get pressured to buy a dress however I felt really at ease and felt they genuinely wanted me to get what’s right for me.

I can’t wait to wear the dress! Thank you ladies!

My experience at The Bride Shop was truly one of a kind.

The owner of the shop is such a lovely lady along with her mum, they make you feel so welcome and nothing is to much trouble. I was so nervous about finding ‘thee dress’ but Cath was absolutely amazing. She made it a relaxed and enjoyable experience for me and my bride tribe.

 

I tried on a selection of her dresses which are all gorgeous and at a very reasonable price. I didn’t feel rushed at all and we happily chatted away while trying on the dresses. I really love the dress I chose from this shop and can’t wait to wear it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this shop to anyone.


Thank you for everything you have both done for me.

Cath and her family were absolutely fabulous! I could not have asked for a better time choosing my wedding dress.

I am a plus size bride, and wedding dress shopping could have been a bit daunting.

 

From the moment I walked into the shop I felt so at ease. Cath made my experience so special, and made me feel so comfortable. She even picked out a dress for me which was the one I ended up going for.

 

She is very professional and has a great eye.

Everything was so easy, and nothing was too much trouble for Cath.


I felt like a princess and all thanks to Cath.

OMG! I thought buying my dress would be difficult …I was wrong! Cath and her mum, what a team, perfect duo for helping future Brides feel comfortable in their own skin.

 

First shop and bingo they found my perfect dress. Would definitely recommend as my whole experience from making contact to picking up my dress was flawless.

 

I’m a plain Jane, no frills kinda girl and thought picking my dress was going to be hard, awkward and not something I was looking forward to.

 

Thank you Cath and mum for everything xxx

Cath came to the rescue after I had a bit of a disaster with my first wedding dress from another shop. With just 8 weeks until me wedding and in a big panic…

 

Cath was absolutely amazing and helped me find my perfect dress. Such a lovely shop with such beautiful dresses and Cath is just the loveliest, down to earth person that made me feel so comfortable and that nothing was too much trouble.

Kim, the seamstress was amazing too.

 

I couldn’t wait to wear my dress on my wedding day xx.

— Charlotte

Cath was so lovely and welcoming to her shop. The boutique is beautiful and it really is a personal experience when shopping there.

 

I found my dream dress and Cath was so helpful in making me realise exactly what I wanted with my planned customisations. I can’t wait for it to come in a wear it again!!

— Crystal

I picked up my dress today and I am one very very happy bride to be. Wonderful knowledgeable staff, would highly recommend.

— Laura, West Sussex

I was lucky enough to visit here on Saturday, Cath was amazing and allowed us to pick up the cancellation slot at short notice. She has some absolutely beautiful dresses and I was lucky enough to find my dress among the selection. Cath was very friendly and gave some great honest advice. Would definitely recommend a trip to this store!

I was really nervous about choosing a dress as I knew what I wanted and Cath’s shop was the first I had tried and was so pleased to find what I wanted.

 

Cath was so helpful and also met her mum who had connections with one of my bridesmaids, so it was obviously meant to be!

I can’t thank Cath and her lovely mum enough.

 

As a first time bride, looking for that “perfect” dress is very daunting. I was put at ease within seconds of entering the beautiful shop.

 

This wasn’t my first bridal shop in my search but I can happily say it was my last! I found everything I was looking for and had such a lovely and calming experience.

 

Cath is truly passionate about helping you find the perfect dress and this shines through. So thank you again ladies… I simply can’t wait to see the dress when it’s ready

I cannot recommend Cath and her bridal shop enough.

 

From the moment I walked in Cath and her mum were both just so lovely to me.

 

I felt nervous about trying dresses on land after trying my first dress on I felt so much better.

 

Cath is so friendly and welcoming, the shop is beautiful and there is a lovely range of dresses for all sizes and tastes.

Thank you for making my experience so easy and relaxed but professional too! I can’t wait to wear m dress I ordered from The Bride Shop 🙂

 

Keep being lovely! xx

My husband and I decided to have a small ceremony to celebrate just with our families and close friends.

I didn’t even want to wear a fancy wedding dress, but at The Bride Shop I found myself, Cath is such a wonderful woman and easy going, she did a wonderful job!

 

Cath found the right dress for me and the price was great too. I felt happy in my dress at the ceremony!!

 

A huge thank you to Cath and her team.

— Ala

Cath, I just want to say a massive thanks you for making my wedding dress shopping experience so unique and incredible.

 

Keep being yourself and you’ll go from strength to strength, warmest wishes.

— Jessica from Crawley, West Sussex

I thought finding “the” dress would be difficult but how wrong I was! Cath Adams @ the bride shop was just the perfect place!

Cath and her mum Pat, are truly the friendliest, warmest people you will meet and put me at ease straight away! I was allowed the time to consider each dress and talk honestly about how I felt in each of them. Cath knows her dresses inside out and was able to narrow it down to my final two dresses. I was so indecisive, going between the two but with my mum, sister and the honest opinions of Cath & Pat, it was clear which was the one for me!

I absolutely cannot wait to get into my dress to walk down the isle and I am so very glad to have stumbled across The Bride Shop! Cannot recommend enough!

Will be in touch Cath with some photos of the big day - thank you so much

I went into the Bride shop on Wednesday feeling nervous and anxious about trying on wedding dresses. I was met by Cath and her mum who couldn’t have been nicer.


From the moment I stepped foot in their gorgeous shop I felt so relaxed and the nerves just went.

There are some beautiful dresses to choose from and I honestly didn’t think I would fall in love with the dresses I did. Cath suggested some lovely dresses and I found my dream dress after only trying two others on before it.

I said “yes” to the dress and can’t wait to wear it already.


Thank you for everything!! x

Cath at the Bride shop offers the most amazing bridal experience and stocks the some beautiful dresses. She makes you feel like a princess when you’re in her boutique. If I could buy a dress again I’d definitely buy it from her!

Cath, her mum and daughter made our experience very special and personal. Nothing was too much trouble and had a wide range of beautiful dress too.

 

A lovely family boutique. 😃

— Nicola from Crawley, West Sussex

I just wanted to thank Cath for making My sister and I feel so comfortable. Cath is warm, welcoming and kind.

My beautiful sister was so nervous and anxious when she first went dress shopping but Cath made her feel at ease and help my sister to realise her true beauty and choose the dress that makes my sister feel and look amazing and accentuated her figure.

If I renew my vows with my husband

I will definitely travel to The bride shop as the dresses are breathtaking and the whole experience and service are truly wonderful.

I recently visited the shop with my best friend who was looking to buy her bridal gown. Wow, what an amazing experience!

 

The shop itself is beautiful 😍 so many gorgeous gowns!

 

Cath, her mum and friend were fantastic too 😊 welcoming and friendly! We had such a lovely morning, my friend was able to try on nearly their entire stock, without feeling an pressure.

 

I’m so glad my friend managed to find her dream dress with you. ❤️

Had my 1st ever visit on Tuesday and I couldn’t have been happier, ❤️

Both Cath and her mum were so lovely and really made me feel comfortable.

They are so good at what they do, 5 dresses later and I have my dream dress within an hour Cath had worked out exactly what I was looking for

Thanks, ladies x

Brilliant bridal dress shop! Was the first shop I visited and fell in love with the dress I purchased pretty much straight away.

 

Staff made you feel very welcome and relaxed. Would recommend to anyone!

Thank you both

The Bride Shop was the one and only shop I went to as I found my perfect dress!

 

Cath and her mum were very welcoming and talked through what I was looking for! I came away with something completely different to what I had originally in mind but absolutely loved it when Cath suggested I try it on. Thank you

 - Helen Avis

This was my first time trying on wedding dresses for my wedding in February next year. I was extremely anxious and nervous to try on dresses as i have just had a baby 3 months ago and i don't feel myself due to the weight gain during my pregnancy.

 

As soon as i arrived i felt relaxed after explaining how i felt and i left feeling beautiful in a dress I love. Thank you so much for all your help and hopefully see you again very soon! 😘

— Lauren from Crawley, West Sussex

Cath was amazing, and really listened and took on board everything I was looking for and styled me better than I thought I would myself.

 

Cath made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and made the daunting experience so enjoyable. thank you cath. I cannot wait to get back to try my dress on xxx

I visited the bride shop in search of my wedding dress 👰. The shop is beautiful clean, well presented and well maintained.

 

As soon as you walk though the door your made to feel welcome ❤️. Cath, her mum and friend were just lovely. So sincere and genuinely cared about making sure everything is perfect. They were also so helpful in my search for the dress. There was no pressure into any type or budget.

 

Even when I attended another appointment following this Cath wasn’t pushy at all and was still wanting to know I had a dress to be excited for me.

 

I’m so pleased I brought my dress from the bride shop I know I will be in safe hands with my alterations and run up to my big day also 😊. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone on the hunt for a dress it defiantly has the edge over other shops in Crawley. 😍❤️👰

I cannot thank and recommend Cath (and her Mum) enough. They made us feel so welcome and at ease, they were friendly, helpful, honest and made the whole experience enjoyable and easy!

The dress I chose was not what I originally had in mind. I was tempted not to even try it on but Cath has so much experience and is extraordinarily talented at being able to spot what will suit you.

Thank you so much!

— Vicki Duval

The Bride Shop was the one and only shop I went to as I found my perfect dress! Cath and her mum were very welcoming and talked through what I was looking for!

Firstly, i would just like to say how welcomed and comfortable i felt as soon as i entered the shop.

 

Cath and her mum were so warm and friendly but also professional at the same time. I was very nervous to begin with as a plus size bride. She made me feel beautiful. I fell in love with the first dress but then i found one that was ever more wow than that.

 

They gave me a massive confidence boost which i really needed. They are very accommodating and not judgemental at all. I would highly recommend Cath to absolutely everyone, especially plus size brides.

— Naomi Gray

What a fantastic place!

So helpful in every way.

My daughter and myself had an amazing appointment, such a large selection of the most beautiful wedding dresses!

and she said....

'Yes to the dress'
