Michelle and the team at Ocean Bridal were really helpful in helping me find my perfect dress for my perfect day. In the lead up to my wedding, I was going through a stressful time and my grandmother had passed away the day before my appointment at Ocean bridal. The dress that I bought from Ocean was the second dress that I tried on and something that Michelle suggested to me, not what I thought I was looking for at all! As soon as I walked into Ocean Bridal, I felt at ease in the calm surroundings with friendly staff. I had had appointments in a couple of other bridal shops in and around Brighton before visiting Ocean Bridal and had been really disappointed in the lack of service received from them. There had been a lot of pressure on me with the other shops, where I was being asked to order dresses that I was unable to try on as all the samples were a size 10 and several sizes too small for me and at over £2000! Ocean had a great selection of dresses and had them in stock in sizes that i was able to try on. My bridesmaids dresses were also from Ocean, again, as soon as the girls tried them on, they loved them! We had a tight turn around time, ordering 3 dresses in September for our January wedding, but Ocean were able to accommodate the order and they came in a week earlier than expected! :-) The colour (Rose Violet) is beautiful and they are all looking for excuses to wear them again! Liz Thacker was also recommended for alterations on the dresses, she did a great job and was also able to turn around the alterations very quickly. Liz also fixed up the dress following a mishap on the dance floor at the wedding, resulting in a tear in the tulle. Ocean bridal's prices were reasonable, the service was great and I would thoroughly recommend them to any friends getting married in the future - my best friend found her wedding dress in studio whilst we were trying the bridesmaids dresses, she just needs to find the husband now
