    Amazing service and beautiful dresses x

    I had trouble finding dresses for my 2 bridesmaids as they are different age, size, shape and completely different styles! …..I thought the multiway dress would solve all the hassle, but unfortunately not. They do come small so although I ordered a medium and a large the medium fit the larger of the 2 and the smaller would have got away with a small easily, however, the larger of the 2 feels very self conscious of her tummy and the dresses did nothing to flatter her shape. Another issue was trying to imagine the dresses in the colour scheme of your wedding as our samples were dark green and a kind of Aubergine?? colour so envisioning them in Cadbury purple wasnt easy! …obviously this cant be helped as to have sample dresses in every size and colour would be an enormous expense for the company. These are individual issues and has no negative reflection on Willow & Pearl. The dresses are beautiful and the service, delivery etc was great. I just have a really awkward bridesmaid (good job she’s my only daughter or she would be getting sacked) ….thanks Willow & Pearl A+ company

    Holly went above and beyond, sending dresses in both single and double weight and additional colour swatches even though I had only ordered one. Holly answered all questions very promptly. I must have tried over 20 dresses to find a dress for my winter wedding and this was perfect! Can’t wait to get my dress

  5. Emma Schaanning (verified owner)

    This is such an incredible idea! It’s great being able to see a sample dress and to try them on! The day I ordered the sample dresses, Holly dispatched them the same day and they arrived next working day which I was really impressed with! I ordered two sample dresses and Holly was very attentive ensuring there was one dress with a single layer and the other as a double layer so I could see both options. The quality was amazing and the eucalyptus and sage colours are beautiful! One of my bridesmaids is quite tall so to have the option when ordering to add extra length is great! Also, the option to have a second dress added for free was great so I could order a different size to suit all my bridesmaids. When ordering swatches Holly sent extra colours so I could see all the different shades of green and I thought this was a lovely thing to do, it’s clear customer service is a priority! Couldn’t recommend Holly enough, so helpful and attentive throughout the process! Thank you!

  6. Helena Wells (verified owner)

    Prompt delivery and so helpful to have dresses to try, also enabled me to see the differences between a single and a double layered dress. Holly put in a second dress for my bridesmaid to try, which threw a bit of a curveball because we liked the colour so much!

  7. Robyn H (verified owner)

    Brillant service to offer as I’ve been able to see the quality of the dresses and try them on before purchasing. Various samples were loaned to ensure I had a good overview of options with the multiway tie dresses which was greatly appreciated.

    Holly’s customer service has been fantastic! She’s been very quick with responses and given lots of advice to the various queries I’ve had up to this point.

    I can’t wait to order my bridesmaids dresses later this year!

  8. becvar.maria (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 Willow Multiway sample dresses (you can add the second one to your order for free) and some swatches. Holly was so lovely to deal with and she even added a third dress with extra lining to try and some extra colour swatches. The dresses look absolutely stunning on, they’re so flattering on every body type! Can’t wait to order them for my wedding – once I’ve decided which colours to go for overall I can’t recommend theses dresses (and Holly!) highly enough!

  9. Stephanie Howland (verified owner)

    Amazing customer service from Holly! I was having a difficult time trying to get the right bridesmaid dresses from other companies, but once I’d spoken with Holly she made everything so easy.

    Holly answered all my questions before I ordered the sample dresses, and she sent me two dresses, both different sizes and one with the added skirt. She also sent the dresses in two of the colours I was interested in along with the bandeau for both and the accessories. This made it so easy for me to make a decision for the final dresses.

    A wonderful experience! I would 100% recommend to anyone after a multiway dress. I’ll definitely be buying some dresses for myself in the future.

  10. vicky.mcgowan121 (verified owner)

    The sample dress order process was great – the order process was easy and the dresses came quickly for me to try. I was really impressed with the quality of the material for the dresses, good quality but also very comfortable. The returns process was also very simple using the returns bag provided along with the dress.

  11. lauren.gilbert-0377

    This is such a great service. It really gives you an opportunity to see the quality of the dresses and also if you have any worries about how to tie them etc. I thought I would need to order 2 different sizes for my bridesmaids but giving them a chance to try them on made me realise they all needed the one. It also came with the bandeau and strap sliders so you can see what works with each bridesmaid. The dresses were like new, you would never know they were samples.

    Holly has been amazing, excellent communication and help to make sure you get exactly what you need, I feel like I asked a million questions and she answered every single one. Also I just wanted to say the dress quality is amazing, Thank you!

  12. sophia-mich (verified owner)

    I am so glad I found this amazing company! I have never experienced such great service and prompt delivery. The idea of a sample dress is great if you’re unsure which styles, colours to go for. Holly even sent out an extra dress which was the colour pallet I was after! The samples arrived in perfect condition and even with hangers. I will 100% confidently say my bridal party are very happy with the style and fit of the dress and will be ordering them soon for our upcoming wedding day. If you are unsure and happen to come across this review… do yourself a favour and just order one!

  13. taylorshaye1122 (verified owner)

    Absolutely loved the sample dresses Holly sent to me! I wasn’t 100% about which colour I wanted and Holly was a great help in offering a few different options. Ultimately went with Wisteria as it was so gorgeous and unique. The fabric is soft and feels great against your skin, and the material looks durable compared to other companies’ multiway dresses. The stitching creates a really soft and subtle look and further confirms that the dress’s durability will hold strong for many, many uses. I’m so excited for my bridesmaids to wear them!

    Thank you so much Holly for just being a wonderful human being!

  14. anna_mccosh (verified owner)

    With a mixture of pregnant and breastfeeding bridesmaids that live scattered in all the corners of the country stumbling across Willow and Pearl gave me some hope! Holly has been so helpful and sent 2 dresses (one with a double layer skirt) for my bridesmaids to try on. I was able to keep the dresses a little longer to give me more time to catch up with them all.
    They all thought they were very comfy and flattering whilst being practical for bumps and nursing. I am also happy as there is a huge amount of colours to choose from, including our chosen colour teal.

  15. Rebecca Wood (verified owner)

    A fantastic service which has allowed me to find a dress that all of my bridesmaids feel comfortable and confident wearing.
    Holly was very helpful to email and provided all of the key information. The whole process was seamless and the dresses came exactly when I needed them.
    My bridesmaids and I were all delighted with the quality and enjoyed trying different styles.
    Thank you very much! I can’t wait to order them!

  16. Lauren Bell (verified owner)

    It was so helpful to be able to order a sample dress (or two) for my bridesmaids to try on as they have very different body shapes. The colour swatches were very useful as well. As well as the process being beneficial the customer service was great. Holly was flexible with the return date as we were supposed to be away on holiday and emailed as soon as the dresses arrived back.

  17. Bethan Cooper (verified owner)

    Being able to see the dresses in person and have my bridesmaids try them on has been invaluable. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a sample dress available in my colour choice, but Holly was kind enough to send along a large swatch in that colour so we could get a clearer picture of what the dress would look like.
    Holly has been so unbelievably helpful with this process, ensuring that the sample dresses arrived in good time for a specific date where I was able to get my bridesmaids in the same place at the same time.

  18. Sophie Andrews (verified owner)

    The sample dress service is fab – it was great to be able to see the different sizes, layer options and length of the dresses before buying. Holly was super helpful and quickly answered queries, provided a colour swatch in the colour we wanted to try, and the sample dress returns process was nice and easy. Really excited to receive my order and for my bridesmaids to wear them later in the year!

  19. Charmaine Losper (verified owner)

    Holly has been amazing and extremely supportive. I had so many concerns and she gave some great advice, which put my mind at ease. She sent the perfect samples for my bridesmaids to try on. Upon receiving the samples, I was truly impressed with the quality of the dresses and am so happy I have found the perfect dress for my bridesmaids. Especially with my bridesmaids being abroad, I needed a dress that I knew would fit them when they arrive. There are endless styles one can achieve with this dress. It’s just the perfect choice matched with the perfect service. It’s a winner! Thank you Holly and Willow & Pearl team.

  20. Katie Burrows (verified owner)

    I ordered two sample dresses to try and Holly was generous enough to provide a third one at no extra cost so we could see all our options.

    The dresses themselves were great. They arrived quickly and were well packaged and easy to return.

    I’ve now placed an order for our actual dresses and Holly has been so helpful and accommodating, just making this so much less stressful!

  21. Charlotte Hussey (verified owner)

    Holly has been so helpful and answered all my questions quickly. The sample dresses were great to see the difference between the single and double layer skirt and the sizes. My sister is pregnant and my bridesmaids are all different sizes and heights so it was really helpful to ensure everyone loved them and felt comfortable. Thank you!

  22. richmondrehabilitation (verified owner)

    Having the option to try on a sample dress has been incredibly helpful. I have 8 bridesmaids all of very different shapes and sizes and I knew the multi-way dress was the way to go. The dresses from Willow and Pearl came in fantastic condition. Holly sent me a double and single layer in 2 different sizes which was also really useful. I couldn’t get all 8 bridesmaids to try them on at once but Holly was more than accommodating with sending them back. Thank you Holly for your fantastic customer service and help with this!

  23. toshie49

    I can’t rate Willow and Pearl highly enough. The option to hire sample dresses for me was absolutely invaluable. I have three bridesmaids who all live in different areas and work different shifts so getting everybody together for a shop appointment was so tricky. Hiring two different sized dresses allowed each of them to visit me when they could and trial both.
    Holly went above and beyond for me with this and sent one double layered dress and one single layer so that we could sample both. On top of this, she managed to send me the dresses in the two sample swatch colours I’d also requested – amazing service. Me then being difficult decided that neither was the right shade so Holly sourced a few different options and sent me further swatches until we found the exact colour I was after. Honestly didn’t expect such amazing service, I’m so happy! One of my bridesmaids is getting married in a year and has asked for the details of this wonderful company as she was so impressed with the dresses that she’s decided she’d like the dresses from willow and Pearl for her bridesmaids!
    If I could rate 6 stars, I would!

  24. Fiona Galston (verified owner)

    We received the sample dresses quickly, along with a return bag.
    They were clean and included the size and colour matching bandeau top along with some strap slider accessories. One of my bridesmaids lives at the other end of the country so we co-ordinated 2 orders so she could try the dresses without needing to travel. They were both ordered on the same day and both arrived on the same day so it was perfect for them to share pictures and styles at the same time. Being able to order 2 sizes for the same price is brilliant as the girls weren’t sure, so it made the process so easy. The only downside is that the dresses weren’t in our preferred colour (which is given as an expectation) so Holly sent us larger swatches of the colours we liked to get a better idea. Brilliant service and we’ve since ordered our preferred style and colour! Looking forward to seeing them on our big day!

  25. Amie Bowen (verified owner)

    Amazing service and beautiful dresses. The sample dresses were so helpful as we weren’t sure on whether to go for single or double layers, but Holly kindly included one of each for my bridesmaids to try on. The return service was so simple and I’ve since ordered my bridesmaids dresses and can’t wait to receive them! The only difficult part was trying to settle on a colour!

  26. Sally Richardson (verified owner)

    Anyone looking to purchase from this seller …they are absolutely so lovely and very helpful , Holly has been so patient and helpful, the dresses are amazing quality and worth ordering a sample dress to try , you won’t be disappointed, I’m so happy with my choice for my bridesmaids , and the price and customer service , thanks Holly

  27. PHILIPPA SWALLOW (verified owner)

    An absolutely amazing service! Holly was so helpful throughout the whole process, nothing was too much effort for her. I ended up going back and fourth between colours and sizes and every time Holly was happy to send out a new sample dress with very easy returns. Holly even went above and beyond and made a new sample dress in one of the more recent colours as I just couldn’t decide!

    The sample dresses were all of high quality, packaged beautiful and impeccably clean. I ordered some other dresses from different sites for my bridesmaids to try on and they didn’t nearly compare to the dresses from Willow and Pearl. I can’t wait for my bridesmaids to wear them in July. Thank you again for all your help!

  28. Lucy (verified owner)

    Buying online is always a bit of a risk in terms of sizing, but the sample dress service took a lot of this out of choosing a Willow and Pearl dress! Customer service was fantastic, and Holly arranged for the dress to be delivered on a particular date for me. I could try out several different styles, including trying the sliders and matching bandeau, which were provided with the sample as well. Once I was ready to return, I used the return label to send it, and Holly updated me when she had received it as well. Fantastic service, and has really helped me with choosing a dress. Thank you, Holly!

  29. Nicola Harper (verified owner)

    Well I must a first class service! Holly was so kind and helpful and made the whole experience stress free!

    Excellent quality on the willow multi-way sample dresses .. a definite purchase for my maid of honour!!

    I am now looking at children flower girl dresses too .. the quality is second to none !

    Thank you so much holly for all your help both on emil and over the phone xx

  30. Becca (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing and faultless service. Holly was amazing and her communication was fab. Had 2 samples for an extended period of time, which was previously arranged and so good considering gathering all the bridesmaids at the same time was tricky!
    Holly sent me 2 samples and another dress in the colour I liked so I could see the dress colour in person along with some lovely dress sliders to see!
    Thank you Holly for a great service and the lovely dresses!

  31. Gemma Wildsmith (verified owner)

    The sample dresses were absolutely fab, I didn’t realise that they would come with the bandeau tops and sliders! It was really useful to see all the bits as well as the difference with the extra layered skirt, it was good fun getting to try on with my bridesmaid after we finally got to meet up again! Very flattering style and great fun to style in the various ways. Would definitely recommend, easy to order and return a great idea to do:

  32. Hollie Board (verified owner)

    Beautiful sample dresses, such lovely quality and arrived very promptly. Holly is so kind and helpful within the process and happy to answer questions and arrange anything you need. Sealed the deal for our bridesmaid dresses and I can’t wait to order and have our real ones! Sample dresses were easy to post back, Holly even provides the packaging to do so! And simply email her when you need the returns label and a free returns label appears in your inbox. A wonderful service and a breath of fresh air in what can be a very stressful time. Recommend wholeheartedly.

  33. Tanisha (verified owner)

    The process for ordering sample dresses was really easy and Holly couldn’t have been any more helpful when there wasn’t a dress available in the colour I wanted.
    The dresses were excellent quality and in some amazing colours. The fit was also really good. Holly sent a large swatch of fabric in the colour I had wanted to use as reference.
    When I was ready to return, Holly sent over the returns label straight away and it was a quick drop off at the local corner store to return.
    I highly recommend the sample service to anyone looking at ordering these dresses. Thanks Holly!

  34. Emma Dickenson (verified owner)

    What a fantastic service so efficient and thoughtfully arranged so you can try the dresses, accessories and see the range of colours. Returns were so easy too. The great service has given me real confidence with proceeding to order the dresses for my bridesmaids. Thank you Holly!

  35. Ami Rasheed

    Holly was absolutely wonderful during this whole process, especially with the logistics!

    The dresses looked sensational and flattering on all my bridesmaids that are different sizes. Don’t be alarmed when the double layer dress arrives and it feels heavy, once my bridesmaid tried it on, she said it felt like wearing a blanket! (I am having a winter wedding so double layered is the preference). The material felt soft, and not one that easily crinkles.

    Thank you Holly for your lovely customer service as well 🙂

  36. Charlotte Phillips (verified owner)

    Holly was absolutely amazing! Incredibly helpful and sent two beautiful sample dresses in pristine condition to try, along with a whole host of colour samples! I can not fault her service. Delivery was extremely prompt and it was very easy to return the sample dresses after we’d tried them on. Being able to see and try on the dresses before purchasing is a god send and reassuring when you’re about to make an important purchase. I’ve ordered 4 for my bridesmaids and can not wait to see them!! Thank you so much Holly!

  37. Lizzie (verified owner)

    I was quite worried about finding bridesmaids dresses as my bridesmaids are both different shapes and sizes.
    These dresses are perfect and the option to try them at home first before committing is so helpful!
    Holly was lovely and so helpful throughout the whole process. After sending back the sample dresses, I ordered my bridesmaids dresses straight away. Would definitely recommend!

  38. Louise Ferguson (verified owner)

    The sample dresses arrived quickly and it was really useful to be able to try the dress on multiple times and to play around with the ways to tie the dress. It made making the decision whether to go for the dress really easy. We were able to try the dress on with the bandeau as well and see if it was something we wanted to go with as well. the process of sending the dresses back was really straightforward, I was really happy with everything.

  39. Jem (verified owner)

    The ability to order sample dresses is a really good idea and meant the bridesmaids could see how they fitted and see what the colours look like on. Along with trying the different ways of wearing the dress, the bridesmaids could also see the double and single layered style.
    The dress itself is beautiful – the material is lovely and comfortable and it flows beautifully. I love how it can be worn in so many different ways to suit different personal styles. I’ve had lots of questions and Holly has been so helpful throughout the whole process. We can’t wait to order the dresses! Thanks Holly for all of your help.

  40. Imogen Smith

    The sample dresses were great to try on and arrived very swiftly. So much easier to decide my favourite style of dress once I’d tried them on and then it was easy to return them too at a nearby hermes pick up point.

  41. Gemma (verified owner)

    The service from Willow & Pearl has been great, quick email responses and happy to help with any queries. I ordered 2 sample dresses and some colour swatches. Although we’ve gone with a completely different style and material dress, the samples sent were lovely and I would recommend Willow & Pearl to anyone looking for lovely multi-way dresses

  42. Megan (verified owner)

    Holly has been absolutely amazing! She has gone above and beyond to help me choose the right colour for my bridesmaid dresses. From hand written notes in the parcels to being incredibly quick at responding to emails. Thank you so much and I can’t wait to see them! Xx

  43. Koey (verified owner)

    It was nice to be able to try on sample dress at home so you can compare and try different styles. Holly dispatched them very soon and the I’m very satisfied with the dresses and service, so placed an order for bridesmaids dresses straight away !
    Amazing quality and Great customer service, definitely recommend.

  44. Rachel Harding

    I can not recommend willow & pearl enough. The samples arrived in 24 hours – they were perfect and really gave me such a fantastic view of what we wanted. Holly sent us additional colour searches. Nothing is too much trouble for holly – good customer service is hard to come by these days. I’m so excited to receive my dress xxx

  45. Catrin Thomas (verified owner)

    What a fantastic service. I emailed Holly as I was interested in ordering some bridesmaids dresses but I was unsure what would suit all my bridesmaids, she immediately put my mind at ease. The sample dresses were sent and I received them within 2 days. My girls were then able to try them on and agree on the most suitable one. We also had colour swatches sent which made it much easier to choose a colour. We were then able to order the dresses, hassle free and communication from Holly has been amazing throughout. She even refunded the cost of hiring the sample dresses when I ordered. Thank you so much for the excellent service. I can’t wait to receive the dresses now ready for the wedding in May!

  46. Lydia Brooks (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 sample dresses and wow it has been the easiest experience ever. Holly is amazing to deal with and kept me up to date and made sure I was happy to wait a little longer to receive a sample dress in the colour I wanted. When they arrived I was so excited for my bridesmaids to try them I have 5 and they are all completely different heights and dress sizes. Straight away they said how comfy they was and how great it was to watch them all make the dress their own.

    It’s been a great experience seeing them all and has made me so excited for the wedding in September!

  47. Aisling (verified owner)

    I highly recommend the sample dress service, it’s just a great idea. Especially given current restrictions it makes it difficult to get out and about. I ordered two different sizes as both girls are very different shapes and they were fab on both, we were so pleased with them. The service was amazing and Holly is so so helpful. The delivery and returns process is also second to none.

  48. charlotte.strenge95 (verified owner)

    I ordered a sample dress recently for my maid of honour to try on. My bridesmaid are a huge range of sizes and styles so picking the right dress is a huge challenge. It also means picking the right size is nearly impossible, so ordering the sample dress took all of the stress away.

    Not only did it arrive super quickly, but they actually added another dress in for us to try on that they thought we might like which was lovely.
    It was an effortless process and organising the returns label couldn’t have been simpler. Customer service was very fast to respond and super friendly.

    I am now ordering these dresses for all my bridesmaids. Not only were they lovely dresses and amazing quality, but the customer service was fabulous. I highly recommend

  49. philippawhelan (verified owner)

    Being able to order samples has been such a lifesaver for me! Trying to plan a wedding when there is so much uncertainty about whether or not we will be able to go ahead on our date has been very stressful, but being able to order the samples means that I am certain that the dress I have picked for my bridesmaids is exactly what I want.

    With the 2nd dress free code, I got a longer and shorter length so that I could see the difference in the styles as well as the double layering.

    Holly has been great, and I really can’t fault the service. I will definitely be ordering more samples once I can get all my bridesmaids together! The dresses themselves are lovely, they hang so nicely and are very flattering. My bridesmaids are all going to look gorgeous in them!

  50. louise youngman

    I really recommend the sample service. A range of dresses arrived speedily and in perfect condition. Mum and I had great fun trying them on during lockdown and now we have picked the style we can get them sent to the bridesmaids to try on. I think they will love them as they are a great fabric and are so flattering. Collection couldn’t have been easier. Holly sent me a label and arranged for a courier to collect from my house.

  51. Rachel Tucker (verified owner)

    The sample dress service was absolutely fantastic. It was really nice to see the dresses in person and get a feel for the fabric, which is really good quality and very comfortable. They even included both types of the fasteners to allow me to try different ways of tying the dress. It was quick and easy to arrange and the return service was also straight forward. I am definitely going to be ordering these dresses for my bridesmaids after this.

  52. Emma Hunter

    Amazing service from Holly. In what has been a really challenging time to plan a wedding, Holly has really went above and beyond. She was able to quickly answer all my questions, was super accommodating with the sample dresses given I have girls all over the country and in terms of the dresses themselves, we couldn’t be more impressed by the standard and quality. So excited for our finished dresses to arrive.

  53. Aurelie (verified owner)

    I was not really keen in doing a sample but decided to do it as my bridesmaids are very different shape and did not seem fully convinced by my idea. I am so pleased I did it! Holly was fantastic in sending the samples to accommodate me with dates and lockdown issues. She also added a sample of the double layer as well as the accessories, which I did not expect, but found extremely useful. My bridesmaid seem very happy now, so totally worth it. The only thing I would have found useful was a little leaflet with the different ways of doing the dress. We went on the internet on the phone but it was not as easy to discuss it, compare it, try to do it up.

  54. Jessie Dunn (verified owner)

    The sample dress service is a great idea and very helpful to decide on the style of the dress for the girls. The dresses are very flattering, comfortable and suit all shapes and sizes.

    Holly from customer services was very helpful!

  55. Fiona Cunningham (verified owner)

    This is such an incredible service. Holly was so accommodating and helped me get all the styles and sizes of dresses my bridesmaids wanted to try at a time that suited me. She was so responsive and helpful, and it was super easy to box them back up and send off at my local post office, zero stress!! Can’t wait to make a final purchase for the real dresses now!! I can’t get over how incredible these dresses looked on all my bridesmaids who come in lots of different sizes and shapes! And the material is amazing!!

  56. Katherine Farthing (verified owner)

    It was really useful being able to try two different styles of dresses (in different colours) from the comfort of home with my bridesmaids. I ordered a number of colour swatches/fabrics too. Holly’s customer service was superb throughout – the dresses and swatches arrived promptly and Holly was really flexible in terms of allowing me to keep the dresses for a bit longer in light of the COVID-19 restrictions. The quality of the fabrics is good and the dresses are very versatile. I’d highly recommend the sample service.

  57. Louise

    What an amazing idea to send out a sample dress. I have been looking everywhere for bridesmaid dresses and it was great to finally be able to see one in real life before committing to buying it.
    The dress arrived so quickly and perfectly packaged.
    I had a few questions so I emailed Holly and she quickly responded with all the information I needed.
    Thank you so much and I can’t wait to get my bridesmaid dresses.

  58. Grace (verified owner)

    The sample dress service is a great idea. I ordered colour swatches and a sample for two dresses of interest. It is really useful to be able to try before you buy. The delivery and returns process was quick and simple. Great customer service throughout. Thank you!

  59. Jess

    The service from Willow and Pearl was fantastic.
    A sample dress was delivered to my door therefore I was able to try at home and get a good few trying on sessions.
    The dress was great quality and felt and looked amazing on.
    Super flattering style and very comfortable.
    Was also super easy to then return the sample dress as Holly organised for it to be picked back up from my door.
    Cant wait to wear the dress next year!

  60. Bianca (verified owner)

    The sample dress service is excellent! Holly was most helpful in arranging a number of different dresses to be delivered for a particular date I had all my bridesmaid together. I also requested large swatches to assist in getting other bits to match.
    I’d highly recommend this service!

  61. Erin Corbett (verified owner)

    This service that Willow & Pearl provides is just great! I ordered both sample colour swatches along with a sample dress that arrived in a matter of days. Holly was fabulous and answered all my questions as well as getting back to my emails super quickly. The dresses were so versatile and would suit any body type. The colours were lovely too and so many to choose from.

    A great service for any bride and her bridesmaids.

    Thank you!

  62. Kate (verified owner)

    Extremely happy with the service provided and being able to order a sample dress really helped decide that this dress is the one. I have 6 bridesmaids so I thought it was going to be tricky to find something that suited all of them, but the multi-way is perfect for all shapes and sizes. Holly was also extremely helpful. Thanks again

  63. Natalie (verified owner)

    The sample service was perfect to check if the dress was suitable for my bridesmaids – I have my 13 year old niece as a bridesmaid so was worried about finding a dress that would fit / suit her as well as my friends. The multiway is ideal and looked beautiful on all of the girls. We had fun trying different styles and the sliders really finish the dress off. Holly has been very helpful and I’m very much looking forward to our dresses arriving!

    There are not enough stars to rate the amazing experience I’ve had trying to find the perfect bridesmaid dress for my bridesmaids! I knew I wanted the multi-way style dress for my bridesmaids however I was too nervous to order them without knowing what they would actually look like on. I then came across Willow and Pearl and was so excited to see that I can order a sample dress for only £20! (other websites were £85 or more for just the sample dress!) The sample dress arrived within a couple of days with all of the colour swatches I picked, bandeaus and accessories for the dress as well.
    Holly was exceptionally helpful emailing me back and forth (lots of emails -sorry Holly!!) and giving great advice when I couldn’t decide on what colour I wanted! She sent out even more colour swatches and even sent a few more sample dresses in the colours I thought I wanted just to be able to see them whole. It really helped me in choosing the perfect colour. I have now ordered 4 bridesmaid dresses and Holly is even going to make a junior one for my little sister!!
    I cannot wait for my dresses to arrive!! I cannot recommend Holly and her services enough!! Thank you so much again Holly for all of your help!

    A brilliant, flexible service which helped me and my bridesmaids try the dresses for size and colour, and gave us a chance to play around with styles. The bandeau is included which really helped to visualise how the styles looked with and without it. Holly kindly extended the time I could have the dresses by a week which enabled me to get around to all of my bridesmaids.

    Beautiful quality dresses and a nice weighty material. Can’t wait to receive our very own dresses now!

    Thank you Holly

    The sample dress service was fantastic! It was so helpful for all of my bridesmaids to try the dresses on in a comfy surronding compared to getting then all together in a shop. The girls had so much fun trying on the dresses and they all looked amazing. They all said how comfortable the dresses were and it gave us a good idea of colour. I would highly recommend this service.

    I have 7 bridesmaids that live in various corners of the country so I was worried that ordering dresses would be an impossible task.
    Holly and her sample service made it SO EASY!
    I was able to have a couple of sample dresses in various different sizes for a short period of time, meaning that I could meet with all my bridesmaids on different days and give them a chance to try on different sizes and have a play with different ways of wrapping them – before making a decision.
    She was flexible with dates and even threw in an extra dress in a different colour so that we could visualise even better.
    The dresses are wonderful quality and each of my girls absolutely loved them!
    It’s just a shame that I can’t wear one too!

    Could not recommend Holly and her service enough!

    Beautiful dresses and amazing service. I wasn’t sure on sizes as all of bridesmaids are all very different shapes and sizes, Holly was so accommodating and sent 3 different sizes to try. She made sure they arrived for the weekend when my bridesmaids were all visiting so we could try them together. It was so useful to be able to try the dress to make sure they were what we were after. I cannot recommend the dresses and Holly herself enough!

    I ordered two sample dresses from Holly and she was really helpful! I needed them delivered for a specific weekend when all my bridesmaids would be available and she posted them two months after I ordered them for that specific date.

    The dresses are beautiful and the material is great quality. Would definitely recommend!

    Fantastic service! We were so impressed with the quality of the dresses and being able to order sample dresses to make sure everyone was happy is invaluable, particularly as one of my bridesmaids has just had a baby. Holly was super helpful and accommodating with the dates of return (as the dresses had a number of destinations to get to) . Really looking forward to seeing the final dresses!

  71. Charlotte (verified owner)

    Perfect service! Holly has been helpful right from the beginning. Dresses are perfect quality and Holly goes above and beyond to help you find the perfect dress! Sample service works well and allows you to try on the dresses on the comfort of your own home.

    A relaxed, stress free bridesmaid dress shopping experience!
    A really fantastic idea to get sample dresses delivered to your door for your maids to try on in the comfort of your own home.
    Holly was so friendly and responded to emails really quickly. I wanted the sample dresses delivered on a certain date to Northern Ireland, this was done without hesitation. I asked for certain colours in the sample dresses, these were provided without hesitation. Thank you so much Holly!
    The dresses arrived in perfect condition, the colours were beautiful and the material was really good quality.
    On returning the sample dresses Holly emailed me to let me that she had received them.
    All in all a very positive experience from Willow and Pearl!

    This is an excellent service. Holly worked with me to ensure I had two dresses for exactly the date I needed them and let me keep them a few extra days. I really put my mind at rest to see the dresses and make sure all my bridesmaids were comfortable.

    The sample dresses are the best idea I’ve heard in a long time. I love the idea of the ‘try before you buy’, it gives such a peace of mind. I have had so much bother trying to find dresses suiting my 3 bridesmaid me as the sizes range from 10-24. After trying the dresses, I have since gone ahead and purchased the dresses and i am looking forward to seeing them in the teal colour. A big thanks to Holly also as she is such a lovely girl and connects with her customers. I will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

    The sample dress process was so simple and incredibly helpful!

    I ordered 2 dresses in different sizes for my bridesmaids to try on and we had a lovely afternoon working out which way they’d want to wear their dress.

    The dress is excellent quality, and the bandeau really makes the difference for those that want slightly more coverage.

    I will be ordering all my bridesmaid dresses as shortly – can’t wait!

  76. Amy (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 sample sizes to allow my bridesmaids to try on both sizes before deciding which suited them best. Both dresses arrived in perfect condition and in colours as near to the colour I’d be buying.

    Holly was more than helpful, making the whole process very easy and stress free.

    I will be ordering my bridesmaid dresses this week and have faith they’ll be just perfect.

    My experience with the sample service was great and Holly really made the process smooth and easy. I asked to see 4 different colours and 3 different sizes, all of which came with the bandeau accessory and sliders. We got to have a relaxing try on session and my home rather than an hour slot in a store, and could take our time trying different colour options, wrap styles and sizes. One of my bridesmaids turned out to be between two sizes and Holly even offered to make a custom size for us – the service has been excellent and personal throughout.

    And a great feature off these dresses – we don’t need alterations just some trimming to the hems which will be quicker and cheaper than most designer dress offerings.

    The only suggestion I have for improving the service is having to return the parcels yourself – I would have rather paid a bit more upfront for a return label to be included rather than trying to find a good shipping deal with good insurance etc through parcel2go.

    Holly is lovely and very approachable and helpful.

    The dresses are a great quality and having the sliders included for the girls to try was a really nice surprise.

    Being able to get everyone together to try the dresses on at home was much easier than trying to get everyone into a bridal store and really helped me.

    The option to have the second dress in another size included for free was a big help too!

    I’d definitely recommend using parcel2go to return your dresses too – it was less than half the price that Royal Mail quoted me when I took the parcel to the post office!

    Being able to order dresses to trial before going ahead with your purchase is a fantastic idea. If it wasn’t for this service, I wouldn’t have been able to confidently order my bridesmaid dresses. I have since ordered these dresses for my bridesmaids and know that they will fit perfectly and they have the right sizes. I ordered one of each size to allow my bridesmaids to try on all sizes and be sure they would be happy with the size on the day. The dresses are perfect! They fit very well, and are very comfortable and I know the girls will be happy to wear these for the whole day.

    The team have been so helpful when I have asked about sizing queries and having the sample dresses for a slightly longer time.

    The try on service is a great idea, and very helpful to decide on length/style of the dress. The team kindly sent all the extra items that you can use on the dress aswell as additional swatches that they thought would suit my colour palette. The dresses are very flattering and extremely comfortable!

    Also – great customer service, so kind, friendly and helpful throughout the process!

    The ability to order sample dresses for us was brilliant as all of my bridesmaids are different shapes and sizes so being able to try them on and see all the different ways that they could wear them was great. It was also good to be able to see the matching bandeau and the dress sliders and to try them on with the dresses. Holly was brilliant, she made sure I had the sample dresses for a specific date and when they arrived they were beautiful. All of my girls loved how flattering and beautiful they are so we have ordered them ready for the big day! Thank you Holly for the fantastic customer service and perfect dresses, we can’t wait to see them when they arrive!

    Being able to see a sample dress is a great idea. My bridesmaids range from being a size 4 to one being heavily pregnant so for each of them to try the dress before I ordered was very important. It was also very helpful to see what styles the the girls liked the most to determine whether a bandeau was needed, and how comfortable they were to have a single or double layered skirt. The dresses themselves were in amazing condition.

    Holly was very flexible with the dates to have the sample dresses for as it was over the Christmas period and fitting in with multiple bridesmaid diaries can be tricky. I have now ordered the dresses for my bridesmaids, not only because they are gorgeous dresses but also it is nice to be dealing with such great customer care.

    Thank you!
