A few words from Fran about her Quello experience


I got engaged in August of 2012 and had no idea of how I imagined myself looking on my big day.  We hadn’t even set the date for a big day, so there was no pressure to find a dress just yet.A few weeks after getting engaged I bought my first ever Wedding magazine, Brides.  I got it home, opened the cover and my stomach turned when I laid eyes on the dress I saw! I knew right at that moment that that was the dress I had to wear on my big day. I looked online for stockists near me and emailed Quello for an appointment. Charlotte called me back and we arranged for me to go to her shop and try the dress. As luck would have it, she had a Jenny Packham designer day coming up and my dress was one of the dresses she had.

It was so exciting, I took my friend with me for morale support, but I knew it would all be ok.  Charlotte helped me in to “my” dress and I just loved it.  I knew I would.  I didn’t want to take it off.

I tried on a few others, just because I could!  We had a giggle getting me in and out of one dress in particular, but it was always going to be Luna by Jenny Packham. I  paid my deposit and that was it.  The first dress I saw, I loved, I tried, I loved and I bought.  And all with no date set, yet!

We set our date as March 1st so I didn’t see Charlotte again until my dress arrived in Sept 2013.  After that, she couldn’t keep me away!  I kept popping over to have a try on every few weeks! Charlotte was brilliant, helping me get the dress exactly how I wanted it with the right alterations.  And Fiona, who altered my dress and my shape wear did a job that was beyond awesome!  She has a massive talent!

I loved my Quello dress experience, Charlotte added to the whole excitement, from helping me pick my head band to getting me confident walking in my dress.  Every girls needs a Charlotte when buying their wedding dress.

Quello have since cleaned my beautiful dress for me and it’s come back looking totally stunning and brand new.


Thank you so much!  Can we do it all over again, please?!
