Read Why Brides Love Pure English

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 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!
A Pure English Bride
Pure English was an overall fantastic experience, and I would highly recommend their store to any future bride shopping for a wedding dress. Their store offers a nice selection of wedding dress styles, and I felt that the quality of their dresses far exceeded other stores within the area. The customer service was amazing and note-worthy as well. During my experience, I worked with Ariel who was incredibly patient and extremely knowledgeable about wedding dresses. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted, and went to great lengths to make sure that I found the perfect dress for me. She was great! Be sure to check out their store if you or someone you know is in the market for a wedding dress!
All of my experiences at Pure English have been wonderful. I jokingly have said that I would love to live in the store because it’s just so gorgeous. The staff is friendly and fun. I loved shopping for my bridal gown so much, that we went back for the bridesmaids, mother of the bride, and mother of the groom’s dresses. I have been shopping at many of the other bridal stores in Virginia Beach for other friends, and no one compares to Pure English!
