If you are considering purchasing a Mother of the Bride Dress or a Wedding Guest Outfit it’s really important that you visit us in person if you possibly can. The majority of our customers do this because they value the advice that you get from our expert team. It is also not uncommon for customers to have an outfit in mind from the website but after trying a number of different outfits, they buy something completely different.

This is what one happy customer, who travelled 75 miles from from Oxford, said about her experience.
“We travelled from Oxford in anticipation and we were not disappointed. What a gem. I knew as soon as I entered the shop, that I would find something. What a splendid choice. The staff were all very efficient, but I must especially praise Suzi, who was most kind, had a wonderful eye for detail and found the perfect outfit. Just 2 things, I hadn’t realised that hats were coordinated with set outfits. All in all a fabulous experience, I shall highly recommend. Thank you all.”

“Where do I start, we arrived on Saturday morning 30th March greeted by a fashion assistant called Susie, I explained I was there to just look for styles and colours for my son’s wedding in June not to try anything on, Susie advised to try something on to get an idea of what would suit me, Susie could see I was nervous and promptly put me at ease, looking at me straight in my eyes and saying it’s ok to feel like that, and that they deal with all shapes and sizes that visit them and by the time I had tried on a few dresses I would had enjoyed the morning spent there. How true Susie was, she chose a few dresses to try on asking me the colour of the bridesmaids and the groom, I have never experienced such a fun, informative session Susie knew exactly what would suit my shape size, and exactly what hat would match the dress. I wasn’t rushed, only kind words. I eventually picked one dress that even made my daughter cry amazing. So I came in not expecting to try anything on and went out with a dress and a hat. I will never forget how special Susie and the rest of the staff made me feel. 5 stars, 10 stars, 100 stars, 1000 stars, excellent from start to finish.”

“I had never heard of this shop but having had a somewhat ‘off putting’ experience in Cheltenham whilst looking for that all important outfit for my sons up coming wedding, I looked on line for similar shops and found Compton House of Fashion. Not too far to travel and easy to find – WOW – From the moment we stepped into this fabulous shop – with truly friendly ( not pushy ) staff, I new that from their extensive stock (thousands of beautiful garments to choose from). I was going to find something that fitted and flattered my awkward shape! With all the stock displayed in colour block and clearly sized it was an absolute delight to select some outfits to try on. (They even give you your own rail to assist you with your selection as you peruse) When I was ready, Pauline was so helpful – nothing was too much trouble for her – and an experience I had actually felt I was dreading – turned into an enjoyable and successful afternoon. I won’t even touch on their stock of hats – shoes bags – absolutely amazing ! If you are looking for that special occasion outfit PLEASE DON’T MISS Compton House Of Fashion – It is so worth while a look and the team there are really amazing.”
