Some of our Testimonials

Wow is all I can say!!! Thank you so much Lorette for the excellent service I received leading up to the most exciting day of my life!! Even though I gave her a difficult task-( to completely change the back of my dress so that i could have the swarovski cristals that i have always dreamed of on my dress) - she did the alterations with a smile and it came out perfectly. Another standout fact about Lorette is that she listens to your desires and helps you to achieve just that. My dress had a train that could be tucked up so that we can dance without having to hold the train up. I have been to 20 weddings and every single dress that had this feature the hook/clip/string broke leading to the bride having to hold the dress up the rest of the night. As my husband and I love our dancing this was something I felt nervous about. Lorette put in extra support and I danced the night away not having a single problem with the dress. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Dear Lorette, A very big thank you for all your help over the last few months. I am so happy that I have found you to make my wedding dress – it’s been so easy dealing with you through the design and the decisions of my dress. You are very special and add to the special time and memories that a wedding brings. I will miss our fittings and chats, but will definitely pop in and show you some photo’s of our special day. Thanks again, with love, Tracy

I had an idea of what I wanted my wedding dress to look like and after meeting with Lorette of Lorette Designs I knew she would help me create my dream dress! I knew this because after chatting for just a few minutes I realised that we were on the same page in terms of the design, material and…well with everything actually! I wanted something elegant, classic and timeless with not too much detail like lace or beading etc.

When my dress was coming together and as I put it on I said to Lorette it feels like stepping into "whipped cream". It’s very obvious that Lorette loves what she does. Lorette is extremely intuitive and in tune with the wants and desires of her clients. I think this is because she takes the time getting to know her client very well and never just assuming and/or going ahead with a big change but always seems to know exactly what you want. Towards the end a few things were added on and I just fell in love with my dress even more and I knew I would have to buy it as there was no way I was going to give it back! I love my dress and I know it’s a cliché to say but I felt like a Princess on my wedding day. My dress was everything I dreamt it would be and more! Thank you Lorette xxx
