"I am absolutely delighted with Karen's assistance in helping me buy a beautiful Aideen Bodkin dress. There are not many UK stockists of this fabulous Irish designer and I had to buy on-line, which is not ideal. But Karen has been great, even sending photos of suggested hats "modelled" with the dress to complete my outfit. I couldn't have asked for more"
"I had a super visit to this shop on Thursday and was given an extremely helpful and professional reception. I was guided to a superb outfit which is being adapted (taken up - I am 5'2") for me on a short timescale. I came away feeling happy and confident about my choice and would like to thank the two lovely ladies who looked after me! These are special occasion prices, but for those very special days I cannot imagine anywhere more helpful."
"I dreaded going shopping for motb until I walked into Patricia Forbes. I gave a brief description of what I liked and within minutes the dress, shoes, hat, bag and even jewellery was brought to me. I looked at nothing else as I loved my outfit and left the shop a very happy motb!"
"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!"-
