Review added 03/03/2019 18:45 by julieawful service, spoke to most incompetent woman Named Amanda, i rang ribbons and pearls as i was waiting outside for my appointment and no one was there, having traveled an hour for my appointment. When i phoned i spoke to Amanda who insisted i had the wrong number she worked for Encore, so i said not Ribbons and pearls amanda said i was wrong. I tried to ring again after googling the number was told the same again. then Amanda refused to answer the phone, i left a message and she rang me back, turns out Encore and ribbon are one of the same, one location staines and one cookham, why she couldn't acknowledge this when i was on the phone, she then said her phone must have been on divert to staines (not my fault when the area code is cookham). then suggested i had to wait 45 minutes for her if i wanted to try dresses on. Her mess up, ruined my day, and left me feeling upset, there was no apology just a rubbish excuse. Do not use.
Review added 03/03/2016 18:32 by Alys MathersI bought my beautiful wedding dress from Ribbons and Pearls, and could not have been happier with the dress or the service I received. It was so much more personal than the other wedding dress shops I visited, and made the whole experience so special. Ruth gave me wonderful support throughout the whole process, was never pushy and nothing was too much trouble. She was on hand with helpful tips for the whole wedding as well as finding me the dress I fell in love with, seeming to know exactly what would suit me. I felt pampered every time I went to the shop, and knew come the wedding day that my dress would be perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruth and Ribbons and Pearls to any bride-to-be!

Review added 18/10/2015 15:36 by Rachel FoxRibbons and Pearls is a fantastic Bridal shop which I would highly recommend. I had such a personal experience which was enhanced by the fabulous Ruth. Ruth could not do enough to make this special experience the best it could be. She is a very warm and kind individual who clearly loves what she does, you could actually feel how excited she was to help me through the process of getting the perfect dress. I really appreciated Ruth’s invaluable expertise and experience, and never felt pressurised into making a decision or going over budget like I had in other bridal shops I visited.

Review added 07/06/2014 17:41 by Liz and AbbyI went with my daughter to look at wedding dresses for the first time at Ribbons and Pearls. We were looked after by Ruth who was very professional, helpful and kind. We had a wonderful time and my daughter found a lovely dress, which may turn out to be the one.

Review added 27/09/2013 08:52 by Viv MitchellThis is a reply to the poor review on here to put the record straight. I have just read it and am appalled. Firstly I was not an hour late because I was there all day and secondly I only ever charged £40 for dry cleaning because I always paid towards it. I know the review was a year ago but I have just read it and even though I am retired now and Amanda is doing a splendid job I feel very strongly that this lie should be seen for what it is. The dresses at that time where already reduced by 50% on ticket price because they were all samples . ThankYou to Mark for his defence. Viv.
Review added 24/08/2013 15:27 by Amanda WillisI took over Ribbons and Pearls in January 2013 -we made quite a few changes the most important of which was a policy of one to one appointments with only one bride at a time in the boutique. I'm glad this is being appreciated by our customers.In the coming months we will be hosting designer days and other special events so keep your eye on our website for the latest news
Review added 24/07/2013 16:08 by anonMy experience at Ribbons and Pearls was wonderful. When we arrived at the shop we did not have appointment but asked if we could take a look at the dresses. Ruth, the lady in the shop was extremely helpful and almost instantly seemed to understand the sort of dress I was after. Despite the fact that I didn’t have an appointment both my mum and I were treated with superior service and I was made to feel really special. What is great about Ribbons and Pearls is that they only allow one bride in the shop at a time and after visiting other wedding shops in the area I now know what a unique opportunity this is to have!
Review added 22/07/2013 15:25 by anonI cannot say enough about this wonderful bridal shop. Having been to two other bridal shops and been disheartened by the lack of service it was an absolute joy to walk into Ribbons and Pearls. The range of dresses is varied and the prices are reasonable and above all you are treated as a special customer.
Review added 20/09/2012 16:09 by MarkI do not know the shop so have given it 3 stars, what an outrageous and a pompous outburst from the last poster.
Review added 20/09/2012 11:23 by anonWas told that the dress I loved was going to be discontinued so I went to buy the sample dress as assumed would be able to get it a little cheaper and was perfect size. However Viv ended up not only showing up an hour later than promised but also, she only discounted the dress by £150 and the dry cleaner she recommended then charged just under £200. I wish I'd gone somewhere else and ordered the dress new rather than give this woman any business.
Review added 20/06/2012 13:05 by Cate BellAs a bride on a budget, I had looked everywhere online for dresses with listed prices, so that I could be in budget and this website is full. I was really suprised by the actual choice of dresses in Ribbons and Pearls, I have found some shop websites list dresses they don't even have in stock, but here it is a real treasure trove and the staff are very helpful and really know their stuff. They put me at ease immediatly and after trying on 10 dresses I was able to choose knowing that it was my special dress. As an ex sample it was an amazing price and it has been sent off to be dry cleaned so that I can store it perfectly for my wedding next year. I even got matching jewellery too.
