I was one of those girls who had no idea and no time. My Mum flew in from Saudi Arabia and made me get a wriggle on my dress cos walking down the aisle in exactly 6 months was apparently cutting it fine.  I was also feeling really self conscious being at my biggest I have been - I was scared and thought I would be walking away without a dress. Dee at Astra Bridal Hamilton was amazing to deal with! She was really caring, hiliarious and was nothing short of a nuturing nature and the other ladies were really lovely. I ended up getting a dress that I felt comfortable and beautiful in. It was the best experience I could of asked for and Dee did a great job

Hi Dee

Just want to say thanks a million for helping me choose my dress, considering we had a 4 week time frame and I didn't even want to wear a wedding dress!  It was one of those times if I find a dress today it's meant to be , if not so be it back to what I was originally wearing.You knew this and not once did you push me into a sale, just so glad I tried that last "different to all the other dresses on". I love it.

And having broke my wrist the week before our wedding I choose an ice blue colour cast for " something blue "

Once again thanks a million

I have just picked up my dress from Astra Symonds Street, and I am in LOVE! Right from the beginning I was made to feel like part of the Astra family. All the girls were so helpful and friendly, and were genuinely excited about my love story and wedding plans. I never felt rushed or like I was just another customer. Being a plus size girl, I was nervous to try on dresses, but the girls made me feel beautiful, never mentioned my size, and I felt like every bride to be should feel! I had a very particular dress in mind, and they found me the perfect one, no request was too difficult or too much of a drama. The girls at Astra bridal truly are amazing, they go above and beyond to make you feel special, and I cannot recommend them enough. It was everything a wedding dress experience should be. I can't wait to share my wedding photos with them. xx
