Testimonials from Elizabeth Ayers customers about our made-to-measure couture wedding dresses, special occasion wear and mother of the bride outfits.
I went to Liz for a wedding dress but I was really expecting a miracle not just to make me a wedding gown but also because I was struggling with the whole concept of being a bride again – how could I look and feel like a beautiful bride at my time of life (50), well in my opinion Liz performed that miracle… she not only designed me a dress that has made me look beautiful she has made me believe I can be a beautiful bride! It’s not just the dress – it was the whole experience from start to finish.
I wanted to say thank you sooooo much again for the dress and veil. I absolutely loved wearing it & I felt so comfortable and ‘me’ in it. I thought I would send you some pictures of the day back in August. I had lots of lovely compliments on the dress too. Thank you once again.
Liz did my alterations…. and I’m so pleased with it. Everything was perfect.
“I can’t believe how perfectly Liz altered my wedding dress and she made so many helpful suggestions on how to get it just right. Thank you so much.”
“Liz did a wonderful job fitting my wedding dress, she saw me at short notice and was just excellent. Thank you!!!”
“Having given expert advice to help me choose the perfect wedding dress to suit me (looks and character) Liz was central to personalising it for me. She cut off the train and turned it into a bolero which, for an autumn wedding, made a stunning complement to the dress and made the outfit. It was just the right length, perfect for a waltz and swirling like magic. So very pleased I chose Liz, without a doubt worth the 4hr journey for each fitting!”
“Highly recommended. Elizabeth has excellent ideas and advise. My daughter’s wedding dress was amazing. Elizabeth’s knowledge and experience of making bridal wear is fantastic! Many Thanks.”
“Brought my dress & wanted a few adaptations, Liz did everything perfectly. Making sure everything was done to the highest standard, couldn’t have been happier. Highly recommend!!!”
“Couldn’t recommend Liz highly enough. She had a lovely selection of wedding dresses and understood exactly what I wanted. The dress and fit were beautiful and the wedding was the most special day.”
“Elizabeth was amazingly helpful and reassuring when it came to altering my wedding dress, I will definitely recommend her for alterations for formal gowns and bridal wear. With her vast knowledge and experience we managed to come up with several solutions with shortening my ombre gown.”
“Elizabeth was amazing! I had my dream wedding dress altered to accommodate a 25-week baby bump! Elizabeth made the whole experience positive and she did a perfect job! Thank you so much!”
“Elizabeth created my stunning bespoke wedding dress. Her skill and ability to interpret my ideas and her patience to make sure it was right was amazing. I’ve had so many comments about my dress, both on the day and since when people have seen photos. It was beautiful and I felt fabulous! So fabulous that I wore it to dinner the following evening! Elizabeth is incredibly talented and I couldn’t have wished for more.”

“I didn’t want an off the peg wedding dress and knew what I wanted in my ‘mind’s eye’. Through some pics and talking with Elizabeth she made my dress to perfection – it was better than I’d imagined. Elizabeth has such eye to detail is so clever and talented, I would have no hesitation recommending her and if there were more than 5 stars here she’d get them all! Thank you for helping make my day so memorable.”
“Thank you Elizabeth for turning my 10 year old wedding dress into an amazing anniversary party dress!
Everyone thought it was a fabulous idea and it was so lovely to wear my beautiful dress again on such a special occasion.

“Yesterday I brought home my one of a kind wedding dress, and I have Elizabeth to thank for an amazing job! She made the picture in my head into a reality and I can’t wait to wear it!
Can’t recommend her enough!”
“Elizabeth was really amazing, she made all the alterations to my dress absolutely perfectly and made it look even better than I’d imagined. She paid attention to every tiny detail and really cared about making it special. Thanks so much!”
“Amazing seamstress and dress maker, amazing service. Perfect alterations on my wedding dress! Can’t wait to show it off in three weeks!! Thank you Elizabeth.
P.S the mother of the bride is also another happy customer!”
“I’d found a dress I loved except for the shape of the skirt. Your expertise and ‘can do’ approach made it possible for the dress to look exactly how I wanted it. I wore it for my 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony in June and had lots of lovely comments – I actually loved it more than my original wedding dress! Thanks again!”
“Picked up my dress today and I just wanted to say Elizabeth has been fantastic in every step of designing and creating my dream wedding dress.Her guidance and advice regarding some aspects of the dress have been brilliant and her attention to detail is second to none. Couldn’t rate the service and final garment highly enough.”

“Took my wedding dress for alterations. Did a fantastic job and the dress looked amazing. Thank you very much”
“Thank You Elizabeth for My Beautiful Dress!
My Daughter got married in May 2016 and as mother of the Bride I wanted to look and feel my very best.
Having an idea of the style of dress I wanted, especially the colour, I started shopping. Months later and with the “Big Day” only six weeks away. Yes six weeks! I came across Elizabeth’s web site. After a phone call Elizabeth kindly arranged a meeting straight away inviting me to her home/studio. When Elizabeth saw my very rough sketch and after hearing my description, she drew a wonderful v neck, wrap over bodice, tea length dress. I explained the colour I was looking for (pale Peach) not “orange!” didn’t seem to exist and certainly not in my size!. At the end of our meeting Elizabeth had produced an amazing dress with unique and flattering detail in a lovely fabric with an overlay in the pretty shade I was hoping for. Contacting the supplier to make sure the fabrics were going to be available and taking my measurements to make a calico template for the dress and a Bolero jacket. Our next meeting just a week I tried on my calico dress and jacket. Elizabeth showed me the fabric and after a few adjustments I left with samples of the fabrics and feeling very excited about my new outfit. I tried on my finished dress with my daughter and we were delighted with the dress and jacket, together with my hat, shoes and bag. On the wedding day I felt comfortable and received so many compliments about my dress. I am very pleased and can’t thank Elizabeth enough for her patience and enthusiasm; designing and making a wonderful bespoke outfit I really enjoyed wearing. Best of all Elizabeth has my template so I shall be asking for her creative help in future. Many Thanks. “
