We thank these lovely brides who have written in about their personal journey with our team here at the Studio.  We were the lucky ones helping them with their specials day and we thank you too.



I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and advice with choosing and altering my wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Kris you were so super amazing with helping me find the perfect dresses and colours for myself and the girls.....and I totally loved them! Nothing was ever too much trouble, from re-scheduling appointments to matching shoe colours to the dresses. One of my bridesmaids was from overseas so her dress was altered very last minute, but it wasn't a problem or hassle. It was all made so easy and effortless. Planning a wedding can be a stressful time but I can honestly day that dealing with you guys and trying on/altering dresses was definitely my favourite part. The whole process was so relaxed, fun and comfortable! Jodie and Alena, you were great with measuring us for alterations and teaching us how to put the dresses on properly....it all worked so well on the day! We all looked so beautiful and felt a million dollars!

The ladies at the Bridal Studio are super stars and I loved every minute of every appointment I had with you guys. I will miss our little chats and the laughs we had.....but I will pop in to visit at some stage for sure.

 I would like to say a HUGE thank you for giving me such an amazing experience picking my wedding dress. I really felt as though I wasn't just a client, more like I was the first bride to walk through the doors.You were always flexible with moving appointments (even doing overtime) I never felt rushed or pushed. Nothing was too much trouble as far as alterations and having you gush when I was in my dress (even staying so you could see me Kris) really made me feel special as though I really did pick the perfect dress for me. I also loved that very rarely was I there with another bride. It showed that you really did care about me and my special day knowing that my dress was a secret from all my guests at the wedding including the wedding party. Palmerston North is a small town and everyone knows everyone and it could easily have been spoilt. It's obvious that you all love your job and why wouldn't you, it's an amazing time in every women's life as you are all about to experience. I wish you all the best for you up coming nuptials and hope that you all get treated as well as you treated me during your planning.

Yours sincerely
Jess (nee Cox)


I just wanted to say a huge thanks for everything. Alena you have been so great to deal with and SO patient and accommodating with all the little things I couldn't decide about with my dress. You were always so willing to take the time I needed and so obliging to pin, tuck, adjust while I took loads of photos and tried to make my mind up. I'm really grateful! I'm also grateful for the make-up advice and play around you did with colors Kris! The eye shadows were perfect and I appreciated your advice. Thank you!
My dress was absolutely perfectly stunning and I felt so beautiful wearing it. I had about a billion comments and everyone wanted to know where I got it.
I really just wanted to say a huge thanks for everything!

Thanks so much for all your help with my gown, lingerie, fur and shoes for our wedding. I was really stoked with it all. Quite pleased I had the fur too, as it was pretty chilly during photos, not that I noticed much. And the dress was amazing, I was getting quite a lot of good feedback about that.  Thanks again so much for all your work, fitting me around my flights and living in Wanganui, especially Kris, meeting me outside shop hours to pick up my dress - you're a star. And Jody, you introduced me to the dress, great choice!
Thanks once again

Hi Bridal Studio Team,
I really want to take an opportunity to thank you all for your help and support during the preparation for the wedding. From the moment Mum and I entered the store we knew we wanted to work with you. You were all so welcoming and really made the whole experience fun and stress free. Travelling to Palmerston North was well worth the experience. Thank you for the lovely card as well :). I have had a ton of compliments about the dress and everyone loved all the little different features.I wish you all the very best for your future, I am sure it will be very successful.

Hey guys
My gown and veil combination was just amazing thanks to the team at Bridal Studio! The girls were very friendly and accommodating, and were able to offer advice and suggestions as to the different gowns options or alterations to adjust gown designs. The process of purchasing the gown and having my alterations done went really smoothly and I felt like such a glamorous bride on the day. I just wish I could wear my dress again!! Thanks very much to you all!!
Many thanks
