We believe in providing the most personal and caring service we can, but don't just take our word for it. Here are just a few kind words our brides have noted to us about our service in recent months and years...

We always love to see our brides photographs!  If you would like to appear on this page, please email us and we will be delighted to feature your wedding!




Dean and I had a wonderful wedding and the dress looked and felt wonderful. Thank you so much for being so enthusiastic about the changes I wanted to make to the original dress. I hope that Ian will be pleased when he sees the finished product. Your help with the head band and the earrings was also invaluable. You were warm and welcoming from our very first email exchange and your support and help increased from there.

Thank you so much for helping me make the day of my dreams.

Lots of love Lorraine x



Dear All at Proposals, and Caroline especially.

I hope you got my card and letter giving you all huge thanks for the most perfect wedding dress experience! Literally from the moment i first walked in to the shop back in September, to the fittings and all your help and advice over the months running up to the wedding. It was a truly first class service, and my wedding wouldnt have been the same without you. So thank you again. I want to send you my photo's as i PROMISED i would show you all.




I knew what dress I wanted to wear at my wedding before I'd even gotten engaged, having helped my sister pick her's the year before. The dress in question, Ian Stuart's Donatella, had been discontinued and I called about 15 shops across 4 separate counties to find it. 

In the end, Ian Stuart's team themselves directed me to Proposals and it all feels like fate from from thereon. All the ladies seemed to genuinely share in my excitement in finding the dress and were all so lovely and helpful during the fittings - especially as I never wanted to take the dress off! I never felt rushed and the dress fitted completely perfectly on the big day. 

The whole experience definitely added to my pleasure in the run up and I just wish I had an excuse to buy more dresses from them. Unfortunately, I am now blissfully happily married and no need!




Dear Caroline & everyone at Proposals,  

Thank you so much for all your help and above all patience!  You made each appointment a pleasure!  

Everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble - Mum and I felt that our appointments were more like seeing a friend and we appreciated how special you made us feel.  We both found our dream dresses at Proposals and sing your praises to everyone that comments on them.  Shame I only get married once and son’t need to come back!

Thank you again.

Love Sarah and Rosie (Mother of the Bride) xx


To Caroline and all the team at Proposals, 

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you all.  Before my visit to your shop unlike most brides-to–be, I had sworn off all traditional wedding dresses, deciding they weren’t for me because I felt they all basically looked the same and weren’t very exciting – then I found Proposals!

Your dresses are simply exquisite!  Thank you for introducing me to the creations of Ian Stuart.  His designs made me genuinely excited about wearing a wedding dress – his style, flamboyance, and sense of indulgence as well as humour were exactly what I had been looking for.

My dress fittings became a really special part of the wedding planning process.  Caroline you were an absolute superstar!  Right from the start of the process through to the end you were understanding, creative and incredibly generous. Your knowledge and advice were invaluable.  I am not only thankful for your expertise in making all the adjustments to my dress, but I am also incredibly grateful for the way in which you worked with my mum and I to help create my entire look for the day. 

Proposals is a beautiful boutique and you all do a great job at making it a safe and supportive space to play around with different looks.  Thank you for all your help.  I have attached a couple of photos – hope you like them!

Many, many thanks,
