I went to four different dress stores in search of the perfect wedding dress (I like to be thorough). Pure English was by far the best of the bunch. Kate was amazing- she made me feel very comfortable (important for someone who is seeing you half naked!) and was very good at helping me figure out what I wanted and what I did not want in a dress. Pure English has the best selection of dresses that I've seen- I was able to try on way more dresses there than anywhere else. Most of the other stores had one or two dresses that I kind of liked after I had tried them on- there were four dresses at Pure English that I could have easily seen myself getting married in. It was difficult to narrow down!

The prices at Pure English do seem slightly higher than some other stores, but they do carry a range of prices and the gowns seem to be of a higher quality than elsewhere. Plus, the overall experience was the best I had at any of the shops I went to.

One of the things that we were initially really concerned about was getting my dress in and altered before my wedding in October. 6 months is kind of a short time frame, wedding-wise, and a different shop said that while they could get the dress in time, there was no way that they would have time to alter it in-house and I would just have to hope that an alterations person in the area would have time to do it (which was a really worrying prospect). Pure English, however, has assured us that they will be able to do the alterations in house with no problem. As Kate said, that's what they're there for- to help me get my dress and be ready for my wedding day.

I would absolutely recommend this store to anyone else (and Kate as well- I'm sure the other people who work there are fantastic, but she's the one I worked with and I really liked her)!

I had fallen in love with a specific Hayley Paige dress, and when researching retailers in my area only two came up, Pure English and Nordstrom. Going through the website, I saw that Pure English was having a Hayley trunk show so I immediately called and book an appointment the weekend of. Heather and the rest of the girls were sweet and amazing. This upscale boutique definitely gives a bride-to-be that experience you see on tv. Champagne is even provided. I ordered my dress that day, got my trunk show discount, and picked it up six months later. I didn't use their seamstress for alterations as I live three hours away. But it was worth the drive. It may seem pricey, so I recommend to take advantage of their trunk shows.

Pure English is without a doubt the most lovely bridal boutique in the area. The selection and quality of their wedding gowns is top notch, they have such beautiful dresses. I had an incredible experience trying on dresses and I ended up finding "the" dress here! Ariel and her assistant were so incredibly helpful, fun, and professional. They had helpful suggestions about style and accessories, they made the experience completely stress-free. And when I found my dress, they gave my mother, sister, and me glasses of champagne to celebrate! It was a truly moving and wonderful experience. I can't wait til I can go back for my fitting! I wholeheartedly recommend Pure English to any bride-to-be, whether it's finding your wedding gown or bridesmaid dresses.

I adore Helen. I came to her 2 weeks before my wedding in a frantic panic because 3 hours earlier the dry cleaners had ruined my gown. It was amazing that the same exact dress was in her shop (I purchased my first one at a consignment place). Of course the gown was double the price which made me sick to my stomach. Helen worked with me so that it would stay in my budget and I could never repay her. She basically saved my big day. Not to mention pure English is a beautiful store and it is so exciting to have your own fitting room that your family can join you in while you experience your dress fitting for the first time with complimentary champagne.

I had a GREAT experience dress shopping with Helen. She was amazing! The customer service and overall experience was the best part about shopping at Pure English. Getting a cup of tea when mom my and I arrived just put us at ease. I had looked at bridal salons all over Richmond but could not find a dress I liked. She really listened to what my style and the first dress she pulled was the dress I bought. I am so happy with my experience and would recommend it to anyone in the future! THANK YOU Pure English!

I had my appointment with Ariel and she's super awesome! After a string of bad appointments (mainly Betsy Robinson Bridal in MD) it was relieving to be treated with kindness, professionalism, and by knowledgeable staff. I haven't quite found my dress yet (needed mom there) but when I'm ready to start looking again I'm definitely coming back here to get my dress :)

I loved working with Pure English! The employees there were all very professional and very nice. By the time I went to Pure English, I was pretty sure which dress I wanted. They were very patient with me as I tried on a few from the same designer and then landed on the one I walked in there wanted. An added bonus - the dress was more affordable there then at another shop I had tried it on at. I loved this boutique, and the value was an added bonus!

Pure English was the first place I tried on dresses and I could not be happier with my experience. My consultant, Mia, was so attentive and really grasped what style I was looking for. She pulled a great variety of beautiful dresses and actually pulled the dress I ended up purchasing. The whole staff is so kind and I'm looking forward to coming back for my bridesmaid dresses and fittings. I would definitely recommend Pure English!

They were also very accommodating to my bridesmaid who needed an extra rush order for her dress and it came in the perfect time! Heather was THE best and extremely helpful. Thank you!
