As you don't know what you might find in Barnardos Bridal, I didn't want to get my hopes up too much when I went in last August. It was 11 months to my wedding, I was in no rush. But I fell in love with a beautiful dress. The ladies in there are fabulous, so kind and genuine and as myself and my mother balled our eyes out they were delighted for us. They reccommend somewhere for alterations and Marie advised me to hid the dress away and not look at it. I took her advice and loved it even more when I wore it on my wedding day. You don't know what you will find, my dress was totally different to what I thought I wanted, but the ladies are experts and so helpful and sincere. I'm so glad I found my dress here but even if I hadn't I'd reccommend it!!

Maire was so nice and helpful to me - I went in mostly to get an idea of what they had and what kind of price, and kept an open mind when it came to style. She was really knowledgable, full of handy tips and not pushy at all. Even though I don't think I found 'the dress' this time, I will certainly be coming back for another look!! I couldn't believe how good value the dresses were, and in perfect condition.

Very helpful, lovely range of brand new dresses, got a beautiful dress for a fraction of the price while helping out a good cause. Would definitely recommend anyone to try there first, especially if you're not set on a particular style. Great help getting in and out of dresses, would rival any bridal shop. The biggest selection were in the size 10 to 12 category.

I went with little expectations first reason, I'm a size 8, mini me, and secondly; I knew the selection therefore might have been limited. I went with my eyes open. I found they had a great selection. With the help of Maire, she narrowed down my selection. She went above and beyond her role of duty. Very happy with dress and price. I was happy that I did not purchase at top end bridal shop as it ment more hours looking and probably more confused, my decision was made little over an hour. Over all great experience & very happy.

I found the most beautiful dress in Barnardo's Bridal rooms. It was just what I was looking for; a gorgeous tea length dress. The dress was in perfect condition and such a reasonable price. The staff were so helpful and buying my dress there was such a pleasurable experience. Thank you.
