"On my first visit to your boutique I was met by Julie who was absolutely fantastic. No idea what I was after for a wedding guest outfit. Nothing was too much bother, managed to get my whole outfit , including hat, shoes and bag. It was my first visit, definitely will not be my last! Thank you so much!"-

"Would definitely recommend to any mother of the bride or groom. Very attentive, excellent service!" - Alison Sutters 
"Thank you for laying aside the dresses for Katie and to your lovely staff for staying back last night- she instantly loved the dress and it fitted and looked perfect, we couldn't even persuade her to try any of the others on . 
I look forward to her wearing it for her forthcoming Graduation."- Pam 
"Patricia Forbes is not just a boutique that sells top of the range clothing. Karen and her staff will give you as much time as you need to choose the right outfit for you. If you are undecided, they have the energy, the expertise and the patience to show you unlimited styles until you find that "special" outfit. They are honest in their advice and you can rest assured that on that special day (or even your every day) you will look your absolute best!" - Barbara Statham

"I visited Patricia Forbes searching for my second mother of the groom outfit for this year. It was quite a challenge to find something different and suitable for a winter wedding. I have tried anumber of places and scoured the internet without success. The ladies were lovely and very helpful. The shop has a very good selection with hats, shoes and bags to match. I ended up getting my whole outfit sorted. Thank you very much ladies."- Judith Morrison
