Reviews are so important to make our future brides feel confident that they are coming to a place they can be comfortable, with a friendly relaxed atmosphere and the support they need when shopping for their perfect dress.
Since opening our doors in April 2021 we have been overwhelmed with the beautiful feedback and the support from our brides was pivotal in us winning our very first award for Best Bridal Shop in Hampshire and IOW with Muddy Stillettos.
Our reviews mean the world to us and we would love to share them with you xx
" I would give Lorraine 6 stars if I could - we felt so welcome and supported and the service here is absolutely excellent. Lorraine is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and has a beautiful range of dresses in store. The boutique is really nicely laid out and all in all it was a lovely experience. I will absolutely be recommending Olive Blossom to anyone looking in the future.
"Such a lovely experience with my daughter Katharine. So many gorgeous dresses - lovely welcome- informative, professional and such a lovely person to guide us through dresses.
"Sunday I went to visit olive blossom and I would 100% recommend any bride to visit there. Lorraine is amazing at what she does and her dresses are STUNNING!! She made my family and I very comfortable and calmed my nerves in minutes. This was the first bridal shop I had been to and I wasn't expecting to be walking away with my dream dress. I went in with something in mind but also went with an open mind, (I'm glad I did). Lorraine listened to what I liked and what I wasn't to keen on and she was the one who picked the dress I said yes too. We all shared some very happy tears and a cuddle. Lorraine felt like family I couldn't be happier with the experience and the dress"
"I had such a special experience at Olive Blossom Bridal, Lorraine, Olivia and Amelia all looked after me so well. The little touches made the appointment so personal. Lorraine took time to explain all the different styles of dresses and then let me pick some to try on, with her pulling others based on what I had chosen. I ended up going back to the first dress, it really was magical. I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day. Thank you so much for helping me find my dream dress. Everyone went above and beyond, I would highly recommend them"
"My experience at Olive Blossom Bridal was amazing, Lorraine made me feel so relaxed, welcome and comfortable. There was no pressure and she helped guide me to my perfect dress!"
"I honestly couldn’t recommend Olive Blossom Bridal enough. I was a nervous wreak walking into my appointment and Lorraine picked up on this straight away. She sat me down and explained a little about how she worked, we spoke about dresses I would like to try, she reassured me that we can go at my own pace and we can stop if I get overwhelmed at any point. The shop is FULL of beautiful dresses. I let Lorraine take the lead and she picked out a handful of dresses, all different styles for me to try. As I started trying them on, she could tell which ones I felt more comfortable in and we got a solid understanding of the type of style that suited my shape. Throughout the whole process, she explained what changes could be made and she understood exactly what I was looking for. The last two dresses I tried on, just wow. They were two that Lorraine picked out and they were perfect. They suited both my figure and my venue and I felt amazing in them. Torn between the two, I took lots of photos to share with my close friends and family (as I attended my appointment alone as I was too scared!) and she said I could make another appointment to try them both on once I have had a think. She wasn’t pushy at any stage and she politely explained how long each dress would take to order so I was assured we would have enough time to get the dress made and have time for alterations before the big day! A week later, I came back and I already knew which one I wanted and I bursted through the door with confidence. We popped me in both and I knew I had found the one. I honestly can’t thank Lorraine enough for her patience, expertise and kindness. This was my first dress appointment and she made the whole experience so comfortable for me. For any brides like me who are filled with nerves, just let Lorraine work her magic and you won’t be disappointed!"
"I had a fairy tail experience at Olive Blossom with my mum and bridesmaids. Lorraine was amazing! We went with a style in mind but Lorraine picked out a few dresses for me to try just to make sure ‘the one’ was right (I think she knew it was!). The whole experience was amazing from trying on dresses, to multiple visits back (mainly for the Prosecco) and collecting my dress yesterday. We all felt so welcome and I have recommended her to lots of future brides already. Thank you so much. We are very sad not to need to come back again."
"Olive Blossom is a beautiful boutique and we were made to feel very welcome the minute we stepped through the door! Although I was a bit nervous prior to my appointment, Lorraine instantly made me feel at ease and really listened to my thoughts on each dress I tried on. There was absolutely no pressure in any way and she was patient throughout the process of me finding my dream dress! Can’t wait to go back when my dress arrives!"
"I had the best experience with Olive Blossom, from the moment I phoned to make an appointment Yvette made me feel special. I had three appointments and they made me feel so comfortable and welcome every time. Saying yes to the dress was such a special moment. Not only is the boutique stunning but the dresses are absolutely beautiful and you will leave feeling like you want Yvette and Lorraine at your wedding! All the little touches, their knowledge and care makes this boutique the best out there"
"The most incredible experience! This was not the first shop I visited and due to this I arrived quite nervous that I would not find the dress for me. Lorraine and Yvette calmed me and made me feel so at ease, the whole experience was wonderful! The collection of dresses are stunning and the boutique is beautiful, a true reflection of the hard work and dedication these two lovely ladies put into their work and every bride they meet. I cannot wait to go back, such a special place!"
"Thank you so much to the ladies at Olive Blossom Bridal! If I could give 10 stars I would! The whole experience from beginning to end was so magical and the team added the most thoughtful and personal touches which made my dress fitting experience even more memorable. I am so happy I took this journey with you and I cannot wait to see you again in 5 months to collect my dress! To all the ladies searching for their perfect dress, I would highly recommend travelling here! :)"
"Just had THE most incredible experience at Olive Blossom, from the moment we walk into the shop we were met with the most beautiful smiles, and a warm friendly energy from Lorraine and Yvette... they were incredible throughout the whole evening and helped me find the perfect dress for my wedding, I will be forever grateful to them for helping me and making me feel so at ease. The shop is flawless the range of dresses are just stunning and the customer service literally couldn't of been better.... thank you ladies"
"I cannot thank these two wonderful ladies enough for making me feel like a princess. Nothing was too much trouble for them , and they have an amazing natural talent for making your confidence soar. I truly felt that they were my oldest friends there to guide , be honest and help me choose my perfect dress. You are both awesome , thank you with all of my heart Lorraine & Yvette"
“ Mum and I had a magical afternoon for my first experience trying to find a wedding dress ! Olive Blossom is a beautiful shop, the dress collection is stunning, really vast covering lots of types of dresses and Yvette & Lorraine were so helpful, kind and knowledgeable. I can’t praise them enough; they were helpful with suggestions but not pushy at all, ensuring I felt comfortable throughout. I did say yes to the dress and I’m really excited for Olive Blossom to be part of my bridal journey. Thank you so much ladies "
