I had the best experience at Abigail Westrup Bridal and they not only tailored my wedding dress to perfection but Jodie packed it in my cabin case for me with such care I knew it would make it safely to Italy for my elopement. I wore the dress again back in England for my wedding reception and all of the alterations and added bustle made my dress fit so amazingly I couldn't wait to put it back on again! I was made to feel really welcome and comfortable at the shop and felt really listened to during my appointments. I didn't realise how much more incredible the dress would look and feel after being properly altered and was so impressed at my final fitting. I would highly recommend Abigail Westrup Bridal for any bride and couldn't have been happier with my experience.

I cannot thank Alie and Liv enough for perfecting fitting my dress bespoke to me. The alterations make such a huge difference. I needed my dress altered within a short time scale, Alie and Liv were so efficient. I love my dress and cannot wait to share some pictures of it with you on my big day. Thank you so much again. Highly recommend and such amazing customer service from Alie and Liv.

I had my wedding dress alterations done here with Abi and am so glad I did! From initial booking to dress collection everything ran smoothly and service was great. I was nervous about the alterations due to the unique details in my dress but Abi put me at ease and helped me trust the process and the final fitting was just perfect and was also able to have a garter made from excess material cut from my dress. Cannot recommend and thank Abi and her team enough ????.
