If you are looking for your unique bespoke wedding dress and need some help visualising it give Erica a call you won't be disappointed. Before I met Erica I spent ages flicking through bridal magazines and walking aimlessly around bridal shops liking some bits of a lot of different dresses. Erica helped me shape my wish list and transformed my basic ideas into an amazing dress!!! Erica has natural flair, an eye for detail and is a great listener (and very patient), nothing was too much trouble for her. Thanks once again Erica xx More...

Erica designed and created a bespoke outfit for me to wear at my son's wedding. She took time to understand what I was seeking and designed a fabulous dress and jacket with great attention to detail. It was beautiful with some extra special embellishments and intricate details. Erica has a customer centric approach which put me at ease as I felt outside of my own wedding this was the next important outfit. I would recommend Erica highly if you are looking for that special outfit. Thank you Erica and team. More...

Erica is nothing short of a genius. Several months before my wedding she had made an exquisite sapphire blue mermaid evening gown with long lace sleeves and crystal buttons for my mum. From there I saw the incredible workmanship that goes into creating her bespoke dresses and I knew it had to be Erica who made my wedding dress. I gathered some inspiration from various Instagram/ Pinterest posts and other sources and took them along to our first appointment. I don’t know how she does it (like I said - she is a genius) - but Erica managed to take all the elements from each idea that I liked and combine them into one dream design, which she sketched out there and then. The following steps were easy- I left to all in the hands of her and her wonderful team and over the following months they made the dream dress come to life. Erica is incredibly talented, and her passion for dress- making is so evident, as soon as I met her I could see how much love and dedication goes into every one of her creations. She has been an absolute delight to work with, and I’m really really grateful and honoured to have been an Erica Stacey bride. More...

From a few emails, two phone calls and two visits Erica NAILED my wedding dress. Patient, skilled and knowledgable she totally put my mind to rest and made my gown just how I imagined it. Even delivering on a last minute veil decision! If you’re looking for a custom, bespoke dress and are worried about taking the plunge: do it. You won’t regret it. More...

I came to Erica having found the style of dress which I knew I wanted but being unable to find a “perfect” dress without buying an imperfect dress and making expensive alterations to the design. Erica immediately understood my vision, especially when I was able to show her images of these dresses which I’d tried and explained the issues I’d had with them. She sketched out what we discussed and showed me the fabrics which she thought would work.The finished result in the end, along with the matching veil, was not only beautiful and perfect but also undeniably a better fit and quality than I could have got from a bridal boutique. I have a tall, slim build so having a dress made to measure meant the waist and hem weren’t sitting too high or too short. Erica also put extra layers into the dress which meant that the flow of the material was a lot more natural and the dress skimmed over my curves rather than hanging onto them. My guests all commented how stunning and unique my dress was and I felt very proud to have had a hand in its design. I would highly recommend taking this route over buying a wedding dress from a shop, and I found it was not more expensive than ordering a dress and paying extra for alterations. Thanks Erica!

Eric designed and made the dress for my daughter Chelsie, who was taking part in the Miss Teen GB Pageant.
The dress was truly stunning and received lots of praise and fantastic comments from other participants in the Pageant, including parents and sponsors.
I believe that the dress played a great part in the eventual outcome of the event.
I would thoroughly recommend Erica to anyone that requires a dress for that special occasion that will be unique and truly memorable.

I was sad to say goodbye to Erica when she delivered my beautiful wedding dress. Not only was she determined to make me happy, she got to know me as a person and concentrated on my needs.

Erica is amazing. I fell in love with a dress but literally *NO* alterations ladies I visited could make it fit as it was awkward as hell (I have very small boobs, but hey, they're nifty) Anyway. .. Erica and her team redesigned it, chopped the top bit and put it back together and made it a million times better than I could have imagined. Within a week as well! She literally saved my ass from having to wear another dress. I am forever grateful. She is also a totally bonzer lady who could not be lovelier. I would not hesitate to recommend! More...

So so so pleased to have found Erica and her team!!!

After a disappointing few months looking in bridal stores and finding nothing that I liked I was quickly becoming disheartened with the whole process!

That was until I met Erica who transformed my vision in to reality by designing the most perfect dress for the big day!

It was such a wonderful experience and can’t thank Erica and Christine enough for all their hard work!

I got engaged in August 2016 whilst pregnant and then married in May 2017. I was feeling a little anxious about trying a dress on because I wanted to lose some baby weight, This meant that Erica was amazing and transformed my mum’s 40 year old vintage dress into a beautiful dress of my dreams all in 4 months whilst my shape was continuously changing! !! Her vision is incredible and her relaxed style makes you at ease at every fitting. I absolutely loved my dress and I got to wear part of it again on my honeymoon!

I met Erica at a vintage wedding fair and right from that initial conversation she saw my vision and understood exactly what I wanted. I had wanted wear my mums 40year old wedding dress but make changes so it felt like my own. Erica listens to everything intently and than makes an incredible design that comes true to life all in a really relaxed manner. Nothing about the wedding dress process was stressful. I think the most impressive bit is that she first met me 11 months pregnant and completed the dress during the following 6 months, during which my shape and size was continuing to change at each fitting! Amazing, I can’t recommend enough. More...

Erica was amazing from start to finish. She designed my dress to perfection. I needed a dress that was lightweight and airy for my destination wedding in Formentera, Spain. I found Erica on Twitter after exhausting the usual bridal shops and not finding anything remotely suitable off the rail. Erica was warm and friendly from initial consultation and tailored the dress to my needs. I loved choosing the fabrics and button details and the flexibility of being able to tweak and change bits as we went along. I had a boho yet traditional two piece dress with a removable lace train which was stunning. I even asked Erica to create another top for the evening so that I could mix and match, it was so versatile.

Thank you so much Erica xxx

Erica made both mine and my wife's wedding outfits for our wedding in September last year. We both decided on different designs and from the first meeting Erica knew what we both wanted and her designs were spot on. My wife and I agreed that we didn't want to see the outfits until the wedding day so had all our fittings separately. When we finally went to pick up the finished out fits we were blown away.. And when I saw my wife walk down the aisle in her bespoke vintage wedding dress I have to admit I cried. She looked beautiful. Erica and her team did a wonderful job with Erica even making our button holes from a design we showed her using the reverse of our invites. Nothing was too much trouble and I always had a good laugh at my fittings.. I would recommend Erica Stacey Bridal wear to everyone if you want a quality made out fit for any occasion. Thanks Erica for helping make our wedding day so special. Zoe Naughton. More...

When we decided to get married the one thing that feared me with dread was the thought of going outfit shopping. I didn't know what I wanted to wear and did not want to be looked up and down in a bridal shop. I have no patience when shopping! After a little googling we found Erica and her team. We went along and had a meeting after a few ideas but still really not sure. Erica sketched out our thoughts and boom she knew what we wanted. Next thing I thought oh lord what will that cost but do you know what it was cheaper than I thought and best decision we ever made! Erica and her team made us feel so welcome, the detail was amazing and people still comment on how good we looked.

Well what can i say? Words cannot describe how fabulous Erica Stacey Bridalwear is. Erica is one talented lady and very very good at her profession. Erica went above and beyond to create two fabulous tailor made bridesmaid dresses and my mother's two piece outfit. She took into account each ones shape, even down to the finer but equally important details such as colour, neckline shape and proportions.
Erica listened to all of our thoughts and ideas (including mine as the bride) and also threw in a few of her own that we may not have considered.
All three looked and felt amazing on my big day and even though Erica didn't make my wedding dress she created three stunning outfits which complimented my dress perfectly!
I cannot recommend Erica Stacey Bridalwear enough, the service and experience is second to none!

I met the lovely Erica 4 years ago. I had been let down by another dressmaker for my bridesmaids dresses, so I was rather stressed at our first meeting. Erica instantly put me at ease and completely understood what I wanted so I instantly felt confident and left it in her very capable hands. She made a wonderful job and we were all over the moon with the dresses.
I returned at a later date for a bespoke evening dress, again Erica didn't disappoint! From choosing the fabric and talking through what was in my head, every step was a pleasure, the dress was perfect and exactly what I wanted. I would ALWAYS recommend Erica for any future bespoke designs!
