"Without doubt the best selection of dresses and the most friendly personal service in the area."
"They were one of the only bridal shops I visited which has size 8-10 dresses in store. The shop has a particularly lovely atmosphere and all ladies have been so helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process."
"Oxana is so lovely and helpful, the shop is absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t have wished for a better service! So excited to have my first fitting – Thank you minster designs. x"
"Hands down the best bridal boutique in the UK! A truly beautiful bridal experience, Oxana and Donna you were so professional, knowledgeable, kind and patient! Thank you for restoring my faith in bridal boutiques after so many awful experiences! I wish we had come straight to you and saved a lot of time and hassle! Amazing Selection and 5-star service from start to finish!! Thank you for being amazing xxx"
"Over the moon with my dress!! Donna was a superstar, helped me so much, attentive and the patience of a saint, has a good eye for detail and though of any AMAZING alternative for me when I really struggle with finding “the one”. So please and the Boutique is everything and more any bride would need, and as for the magical bridal mirror! You will want to take that home as well. Thanks so much ladies xxx"

"I went to Minster Bridal Boutique last week and found my dream wedding dress. The experience was just fabulous and Minster Bridal Boutique was the only shop in Dorset that had exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Oxana. She is so friendly and very helpful. Oxana offered her professional opinion which was so refreshing also. I could not recommend them enough. I had the most lush time and found my perfect dress. xx"
"We had the most wonderful experience finding my gorgeous wedding dress with Oxana and Louise at Minster Designs. I am completely in love with my dress and accessories and can’t wait to put it on again when I go back for alterations – THANK YOU Xx"
"I was lucky enough to find my dream wedding dress at Minster Designs, Oxana and Donna listened to what I wanted and really made the whole experience perfect throughout, The service was so great we also chose to hire the groomsmen suits and purchase shoes from there."
"WOW where do I start? Oxana & Donna were both absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of choosing my dream dress. They were so patient, friendly and accommodating in all of my needs. I got married abroad and they offered me a lovely range of beautiful travel boxes to get my dress there as safely as possible. The dress was stored and packed immaculately which, as you can imagine, was a HUGE weight off my mind. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they made the whole experience one to remember. I cannot thank them both enough! I would recommend Minster Designs to anyone; they will honestly give you the best experience in their beautiful boutique! Thanks again to you both xxx"
"I actually can’t recommend Oxana and her team enough, they are incredibly professional and caring and made the whole process of hiring suits for groomsmen and family who were all over the country (and one in NZ!) easy and stress free. It is such a pleasure to work with highly skilled people who have such a passion for what they do and this is very obvious from the minute you walk into the shop. Xx"
"I visited 10 different bridal shops before I even tried on a single dress, no where was quite right until I walked into Minster Designs Bridal Boutique. From the moment i walked in i knew that was where i was going to find my dress. Oxanas service in second to none. She is the very very best. The service i received the whole way through was impeccable. Oxana is a natural perfectionist, i found my dream dress and no matter how many i tried on i was never rushed. The boutique was always shut for one on one personal service. Oxana ended up doing my whole entire bridal party as after meeting her i knew no one would even come close to her expertise. Oxana dressed our whole bridal party and groomsmen; Myself as the bride, 7 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, Groom, 2 best men, 5 ushers, 1 page boy and both of our sets of parents. Oxana worked with the florist to ensure all colours of flowers matched perfectly our attire. Oxana even matched my wedding jewlerry and tiara to my dress. She really is truly amazing and i would highly recommend, my whole wedding experience with her was spectacular and everything was more than perfect on the day (even with such a large wedding party). Thank you so much, Sebrina xx"
"We hired the men’s & page boys tails from Oxana and her team for our Wimborne wedding. At every stage Minster bridal were excellent and so helpful especially because I was organising the Wedding from 500miles away! We cannot thank you enough xxx"
"Okay. So I went into minster with the wedding dress I had already brought elsewhere intending to find a veil. I only walked out with a new wedding dress. A veil. A headpiece and 3 bridesmaid dresses. The quality of the dresses are on another level. I had travelled everywhere to look for dresses and the last shop I needed to pop into.. little did I know was a gorgeous small boutique with some of the most beautiful dresses. Oxanna could see that I wasn’t 100 percent in love with my dress I had brought elsewhere and my mum knew it too. She said did I want to look at one dress that said would suit me.. I said yes. And fell in love instantly. It didn’t weigh 100 tons so I knew I could dance and sit in it without the hassle. And she even had the perfect veil and headpiece too. I felt instantly settled and happy. I also got the look I was waiting for from my mum. ? Oxanna was perfect and very patient consider I was messaging her a lot. She also fitted all 3 of my bridesmaids with stunning dresses. I cannot recommend this place any more. Trust me when I say the quality is totally different. You will know when you go and visit. ??"
"I brought my dress from here a couple of weeks ago after going to loads of shops and not finding any I liked. I tried on some lovely dresses here, definitely the best range in comparison to the other shops I had tried. I went back in a week later as it was a designer day and tried on a few more. Again all the dresses I tried on were beautiful and I brought my dress. Oxana was very helpful and the shop itself is lovely. I am looking forward to going back for dress fittings!"
"If I could I’d give 10 stars! I’m sure everyone says it, but my experience of choosing my dress to wearing it on the day, was utterly perfect!! When I first went to the boutique I was so nervous as I’ve only really worn a dress about 4 times in my adult life, so was pretty sure I’d want something plain looking, but the ladies were so amazing choosing a few for me to try, and when I put mine on (was only the second one trying on) even I got that ‘this is THE dress’ feeling, which I never would’ve imagined! Was absolutely perfect and fit like it was made just for me! Thank you thank you thank you! Will forever recommend everyone comes to Minster bridal! Xxx"
"Would highly recommend using Minster Bridal Boutique for your special day. The staff were all very accommodating and managed to find me the perfect dress for a shotgun wedding at 9 months pregnant... anything is possible. Thank you to all involved."
"I had my first bridal experience on Saturday and what an unforgettable experience it was. The shop is beautifully decorated and the dresses are just stunning. The moment we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Donna who gave us a glass of prosecco and some cakes and made myself and my bridal party feel right at home. Nothing was too much of a ask. For a bride who is getting married in July this year, I knew that it could be potentially tight with the order time but she manged to pull through and get me my dream dress.
I cannot recommend Bridal Minster enough. If you’re lucky enough to get Donna, know that you will be in safe hands with her!"
"This was my first experience trying on dresses and I was made to feel very relaxed and comfortable. They have a beautiful selection of dresses and are not pushy at all so you can be left to really think rather than rushing into a decision."
"The ladies have been so helpful and lovely. I’ve tried on lots of dresses and I’m very happy that I’ve chosen one. A great selection of dresses too. Thank you so much ladies."
"My experience at Minster bridal was brilliant. Ladies that work there are lovely, so helpful and not a hint of pushy sales. All the dresses in the shop are gorgeous, I could have picked any one of them. I felt that the dresses were really good quality compared to some of the other shops I had been to. I bought my dream dress from Minster bridal and I loved it so much. Thank you Minster Bridal for helping me find ‘the one’!!! I will be telling all my friends to shop with you in the future!"
"I had a fantastic experience at Minister Bridal Couture.
From the moment I stepped through the door the service was impeccable.
I was greeted by my personal assistant who was kind, friendly, easy going and attentive and all of their gowns were absolutely stunning.
I was there for 2.5 hours having the time of my life. My bridal party were given drinks and were able to look around the boutique freely to choose dresses for me to try on. There was no pressure to purchase at all which is the most important thing when you are looking for the dress of your dreams.
I would 100% recommend Minister Bridal Couture to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience."
"I had the most incredible experience at Minster Bridal Couture in Chichester! Beautiful store, amazing staff and I found my dream dress! It was the first dress I tried on, chosen by Terri, and I can’t wait to wear it when I walk down the aisle. Highly recommend for an amazing and personal wedding dress experience"
"Nice atmosphere, really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Massive selection of dresses that would suit almost any taste. Millie was our assistant, totally understood the brief and had lots of suggestions. Highly recommend. Save some pennies first, the dresses are amazing so they request half the cost as deposit on the day."
"I highly recommend shopping for your wedding dress at Minister Bridal! I had a lovely experience finding my dress as a lot of thought and care goes into the appointment. Special thanks to Terri as she made my experience so amazing and personable! The selection of dresses is stunning and they do really care about you finding the right dress."
