⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Serena Mariani, January 2017

"Small but perfectly formed boutique with a good selection of interesting brands - but the real asset is Jana, the owner. Her genuine passion really comes through in the service, something I really can't say for other bridal shops I went to where I was left to basically pick any dress I liked without any advice offered. Jana really went the extra mile and even researched similar dressed to the one I said I liked, which was over my budget. Her sample dresses are immaculate and she takes great care with them- again not something common as I have seen many being worn and stained in other places. She even took the trouble to try and style my hair in a more "bridal" way to see the effect on the dress. No sales pressure and lot of enthusiasm. Worth the trip from London!"

Thank you Jana for such a wonderful afternoon. Cannot recommend enough!"

"I would give 10 stars If I could! It was the very first time I feel comfortable trying on wedding dresses, I was afraid to be alone but You made it as nice as being with friends, honest and never pushing.. Thank you so much!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sherry Desauza, January 2017

"What a lovely experience. Was unsure what style of dress I wanted, spoke to Jana on the phone, in the morning she listened to my long list of idea's! In the afternoon I turned up and was blown away. Was treated like a princess. I had four dresses to try on, all in my price range, with different accessories that I could try on. After trying them all on, I chose the first dress. Cannot thank Jana enough. So looking forward to my wedding in June. X

"MODE Bridal boutique is truly beautiful.  Jana really made me feel welcome & very comfortable. I had a 1 hour appointment. I went along with sisters. Jana was very quick to book my appointment & chase up anything she needed. (Style, Size, lengths etc)
When I arrived Jana showed me the two dresses she had in mind after we had discussed shapes/styles I had in mind.The first one I tried I fell in love with but had to try a 2nd dress just to be sure my 1st choice was the right decision. I really love how much help & advice I was given. I'm so pleased I have my dress, I will go back to accessorise my last finishing touches next year. Gorgeous hair pieces & jewellery are on display to buy so everything I need will be available.  Thanks Jana for all your help, xxx"

"Absolutely wonderful experience. Lovely boutique, amazing service and amazing dresses. Highly recommended."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Asia Kumor, November 2016

"Booked an appointment just to try on some dresses, as it was my first time wedding dress shopping. I was surprised how professional Jana is and how beautiful home based salon she set up. I came with my close friends for an hour appointment. She made us all feel so comfortable and I got a personal approach to all my needs.
All dresses I tried were so beautiful but I didn't expect I would have found anything on my first visit.
Surprisingly, I did! I found a very beautiful dress and I am sooo happy!
Didn't feel pushed into a sale at all. Thank you for all your help Jana!"

"I bought my wedding dress from Mode Bridal yesterday and had the best shopping experience. Jana is lovely, goes out of her way to help and genuinely has your best interests at heart. I can't wait to go back in for my measurements!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Gemma Moseley, November 2016

 

"WOW, WOW, WOW! Is how I describe my experience at MODE Bridal and Jana as a person. My mum and I met Jana at Ashdown Park Wedding fair, and we instantly fell in love with her beautiful dresses and the way she portrayed herself.

Jana is one of the nicest people I have ever met, she instantly put me at ease and could not do enough for me.

MODE Bridal was the first shop I went to, from the moment I stepped through the door I was blown away.
Jana had put the dress that I liked on the manikin, and it took my breath away, I was so excited!
I put the dress on and thought YES this is it, however, Jana advised me to try on other dresses, just to be sure.

She gave me lots of different styles to try on, and then I found her…….. MY DREAM DRESS! It was the most amazing dress I had ever seen.
I cried, my mum cried and I think Jana may have"

“Amazingly attentive service and beautiful dresses. Definitely worth a visit!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Vicki Netley, October 2016

“If I could rate 101/100 then I totally would!! Jana gave me the "wedding dress experience" and so SO much more. The first and only wedding dress appointment I had (I ended up cancelling the appointments I had elsewhere after my first appointment with Jana!) Jana made me feel so comfortable and special with every visit, no pressure what's-so-ever! Only her professional guidance and advice which any bride-to-be wants! We had so many memorable moments that I shall never forget. Thank you Jana for making my wedding dress dream come true. I purchased the 4th and final dress that i tried on, I knew right there and then that the dress was the one. Made to measure in Rome And designed by Anna Tumas, Jana informed me on every single step via email and text about updates on the dress. I also felt so comfortable emailing Jana whenever I had any question or concern. She was super quick to get back to me and was extremely honest and advisable. Guided and advised me every single step of the way. I cannot put in words how the dress made me feel on my wedding day... it was just the best feeling in the world. I can't thank Jana enough for making this such a special time for me. Xx"

Beautiful décor and Jana couldn't do enough for me and my guest. A glass of fizz on arrival and she already had a dress ready on display from what I had told her I liked. Nothing was too much trouble. I tried on 5 dresses all of which were stunning and unique before finding "the one"! I had not enjoyed dress shopping up until the point of walking into MODE. I can't thank Jana enough. This place is an absolute must for any future brides."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hannah Grammel, October 2016

"Honestly, if you are looking for your dress, go to MODE Bridal- lovely setting personal atmosphere and a warm welcome. There was a beautiful range of dresses to pick from and the service was 1st class. I lost a lot of weight unintentionally in the month building up to the wedding and getting my dress altered was a pain free and stress free experience with her seamstress who was also fantastic!"

"Great experience, amazing service, beautiful dresses!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Daisy Pratt, October 2016

“I had a great time at Mode Bridal, trying on a selection of their beautiful dresses. My sister and I were made to feel very special with bubbles to enjoy and a very relaxed and cosy setting. Highly recommend if you're in the Brighton & Hove area!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Eavy Bauwens, October 2016

“I cannot recommend MODE Bridal enough. I have been dress shopping for months and done different shops, but the service offered was really exceptional.

The shop itself is very beautiful and intimate. I felt immediately at ease and there was plenty of room to get dressed, see the dresses and I was offered a tea or even champagne!

Jana was so kind to go over the different dresses and told me which dresses suited my body type (which is something I have never encountered before in a bridal shop). She even went so far to give me honest counsel that a dress, wouldn't be for me because of my body type. I really liked this kind of honesty and was very pleased she helped me with her professional advice.I loved how we did a quick tour and we discussed the different designers and which dresses of them would suit me best. She also kept in mind my budget.

Her selection of dresses was very beautiful, stylish and different yet timeless and I could see myself marry in almost every dress I tried on. She was also very quick in finding out what I liked, what not and pointing out what would be possible with the dress. All of this without being too pushy to sell and in a very creative way! She took her time for me, which I also really appreciated.

The dress I finally bought was absolutely nothing like I ever thought I'd wear. I decided to try it on because when she introduced the designer she told me about how beautiful the pattern was. I really wasn't expecting much of it until I tried it on. It was amazing. We tried on a few different dresses afterwards and in the end she pointed out that 'my' dress seemed 'more me'. I'd never thought about a wedding dress like that before and she was absolutely right. My fiancée and everyone I've showed it too absolutely love it and how it suits me. Somehow she seemed to analyse what kind of dress I wanted! I am so looking forward to wearing it on my wedding day.

She was exceptionally kind in helping me make a video, so I could show the dress to my mother and sisters.She also offered me time to think because I didn't want to make the decision without consulting them. The video was such a big help and she knew exactly how I should walk (and even 'twirl') to capture the dress and help me make my decision.

I am also very grateful that she picked me up and dropped me (and my dress, since it was a sample dress) off at the station with her car and all her advice relating to the seamstress and storage of the dress after the wedding. I am very sorry I live so far away and won't be doing the last minute alterations with her and her regular seamstress!

I'll be back in a couple of months with my report (and pictures) of the wedding. Thank you so much Jana, you've been amazing and I am so grateful for your advice and professional support!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Holly Scott, September 2016

"My experience with Jana at Mode Bridal was beyond amazing! If I could give her 10+ stars I would! Until I found Jana it was fun trying on dresses but it wasn't until I stepped through her door that it felt like I was actually getting married & the whole experience came to life. I found my dream dress pretty quickly but Jana still encouraged me to try several more on to make sure I was completely convinced. She made it so special every time I visited for a fitting or to show my Mum or Sister. I never felt rushed, I loved every second of being there & will really miss my visits! My Siren by Terry Fox gown was the perfect dress for me & my Donna Crain head piece completed it perfectly. I am so so happy I discovered Mode. Thank you so much Jana, your incredible & I wish I could do it all over again xxx"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Tamara Young, August 2016

"I bought my beautiful dress from Mode Bridal. The experience from start to finish was faultless. Jana made you feel so beautiful and comfortable she was amazing, I loved how she has a show room and it is only you and your friends with a glass of champagne. I would highly recommend Mode Bridal to any bride looking for the full experience was 5 star luxury all the way."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Alex Besley, August 2016

"It was as if today was meant to be, managed to get a very last minute appointment which resulted in the purchase of what can only be described as a stunning dress for my Step-Daughter. Jana was an absolute delight and made us all feel incredibly welcome, with no pressure to buy! Thank you x"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ceri Griffiths, August 2016

"I had a fantastic experience dress shopping at Mode. Jana was extremely welcoming, and made me feel like I could take as much time as I wanted trying on dresses. The dresses themselves are beautiful, and many are a little more unusual than those you find in most bridal shops. The added touches of being offered flowers and a delicate headband to try with the dresses made the experience really special. I'm delighted that I found 'the dress' at Mode!"

 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Katie Noonan, July 2016

"Thank you so much for my first wedding dress shop experience! Great advice and a lovely atmosphere! Thank you x"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Catherine Gape, July 2016

"Hello Jana, Couldn't wait to share a couple of the "unofficial" pics of our wedding yesterday. Thank you so much for helping me find the beautiful Anna Tumas dress! I'm so, so glad I visited Mode when dress shopping. You're wonderful! Catherine x x"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bethany Mulligan, June 2016

Jana who was the boutique owner was amazing, the appointment never felt rushed and the boutique was set out beautifully. We were able to try on lots of different dresses and the personal touches Jana offered made the whole experience amazing. She had some absolutely gorgeous dresses in there! I ended up buying my dress from her and can't say a bad word about the whole experience.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lucy Cory-Wright, May 2016

"Could not recommend enough! Beautiful selection of dresses, lovely venue, and Jana could not have been more helpful. Very glad I went - found the perfect dress for a very reasonable price."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Rosie Hesling, April 2016

"Mode Bridal gives just the most special and perfect bridal dress shopping experience. Jana provides a personalised and tailored experience making buying the special dress effortless and truly enjoyable. 

Thank you Jana, I couldn't be happier with the dress and thank you for the extra mile you have gone to make the experience such a pleasure."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Louise Parris, March 2016

"Excellent customer service, nothing was too much trouble and the most beautiful collection of wedding dresses that I have seen. I can't recommend Mode Bridal highly enough!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lel Hurst, March 2016

"Mode was the first place I went to and I fell in love with a dress, although completely over budget. I then went to other shops and the experience was awful compared to Mode! At Mode you are looked after from the minute you step in the door. Jana makes sure that your appointment is exclusively for you, she goes through the collections and helps you to find a selection of dresses to try. She then helps you in and out of all the dresses. I would have thought that all bridal shops would do this, but from experience I can tell you that this kind of fabulous customer service is extremely rare. In some other stores I was given plastic tokens to identify what I wanted and shoved in what felt like a cupboard and handed dresses to try and work out how to get them on.

Mode also stocks some of the most breathtaking dresses I had seen. I didn't want to be head to toe in lace. Having said that in another store the staff looked like I'd just told them I'd killed a cat, but this didn't phase Jana at all. She found me the most perfect dress, so perfect that strangers stopped me in the street to tell me how beautiful it was.

Jana also realised how worried I was about the day and offered to come and put me in the dress. I am lucky as our wedding was minutes from the shop but I am so very grateful that she took the time out to do this for us.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone to go to Mode for their dress. Yes, I spent more than I had budgeted but I would do it all over again in a heart beat because of how professional and personal the service is."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jo Finch, February 2016

"Lovely bridal collection and beautiful service was so helpful and kind (I went alone was upset about doing something so special alone) but was greeted and supported all the way through and got a beautiful dress!!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kerri Barnes, February 2016

"Good quality and quantity of dresses to choose from. Jana is extremely helpful and absolutely no pressure to buy anything. Loved it here and would certainly recommend xx"
