We had the most wonderful experience finding my gorgeous wedding dress with Oxana and Louise at Minster Designs. I am completely in love with my dress and accessories and can’t wait to put it on again when I go back for alterations – THANK YOU Xx

Kerry Lenehan

WOW where do I start? Oxana & Donna were both absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of choosing my dream dress. They were so patient, friendly and accommodating in all of my needs. I got married abroad and they offered me a lovely range of beautiful travel boxes to get my dress there as safely as possible. The dress was stored and packed immaculately which, as you can imagine, was a HUGE weight off my mind. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they made the whole experience one to remember. I cannot thank them both enough!
I would recommend Minster Designs to anyone; they will honestly give you the best experience in their beautiful boutique!
Thanks again to you both xxx

We hired the men’s & page boys tails from Oxana and her team for our Wimborne wedding. At every stage Minster bridal were excellent and so helpful especially because I was organising the Wedding from 500miles away! We cannot thank you enough xxx

Fenella Vine-Brown

I brought my dress from here a couple of weeks ago after going to loads of shops and not finding any I liked. I tried on some lovely dresses here, definitely the best range in comparison to the other shops I had tried. I went back in a week later as it was a designer day and tried on a few more. Again all the dresses I tried on were beautiful and I brought my dress. Oxana was very helpful and the shop itself is lovely. I am looking forward to going back for dress fittings!

Danielle Marie

I had an amazing time finding the dress of my dreams. The team were lovely and very accommodating. I’m looking forward to getting my dress back on when I come for my fitting!!

Over the moon with my dress!! Donna was a superstar, helped me so much, attentive and the patience of a saint, has a good eye for detail and though of any AMAZING alternative for me when I really struggled with finding “the one”. So pleased and the Boutique is everything and more any bride would need, and as for the magical bridal mirror! You will want to take that home as well. Thanks so much ladies xxx
Natalie Truelnk – 1st November 2016
A huge thank you to Oxana and team at Minster Designs, from start to finish getting my wedding dress was a pleasure. Oxana is so experienced and knew exactly what would suit me. Also the boutique is gorgeous with white fluffy carpet and a lovely chaise longue for my mum and bridesmaids to relax on. It was lovely to find my wedding dress in my home town and the personal touch made all the difference. It was a pleasure popping in with my mum then going for coffee on a Saturday morning stroll around Wimborne rather than struggling with parking in some obscure location. I would highly recommend Minster Designs, excellent service, beautiful gowns and all very sensibly priced. Thank you so much x
Lyndsey Poore – 6th October 2016
Minster Designs Bridal Boutique was simply amazing from my very first visit till my last. The atmosphere was really relaxed, the service was excellent and I felt totally at ease. I couldn’t have been happier with my dress and have had so so many kind comments about it. I ended up getting my shoes, head dress and a bracelet for my wedding day from Minster Designs. Everything is just beautiful and classic. Thank you so much for making my day super special!
Alexandra Ami – 31st August 2016
I bought my wedding dress from here last week and really enjoyed the whole experience. Oxana was really helpful and lovely and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. There was no pressure to buy just really helpful, professional and friendly advice. I am so happy with my dress and glad I chose Minster Designs. Thank you.

Kerry Lenehan Roscoe – 30th January 2016
I went in to Minster Designs just to look at what style dress suited me most and I left the shop having put the deposit down on a dress I tried on there!! 🙂 All of Oxana’s dresses she has are beautiful, they’re so different to what I’d be trying on in all the other shops and they’re for sale at reasonable prices. Highly recommend this shop – so glad I visited. Plus it was a lovely touch to receive a card in the post thanking me for choosing her. Can’t wait to come in again soon and try my dress on again!
Emma Samson – 27th September 2015
Oxana could not have been more helpful and was so lovely. She steamed my wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and veil in the week before the wedding and the service I received was excellent. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Claire Warren – 24th July 2015
My wedding dress experience was absolutely fabulous all thanks to Oxana and her wonderful carefully picked selection of dresses. I am absolutely over the moon with my dress and looked no further after being in Oxana’s hands. Her level of service was exceptional and I would highly recommend her to everyone.
Bea Gunner – 12th July 2015
I am writing this to share what wonderful service I received with the alterations on my ball gown. Oxana was so welcoming, full of smiles and very professional. The service was second to none with the work being done finished to a excellent standard and ironed too. The workshop was very clean and tidy and above all very welcoming atmosphere. I would recommend Minster Designs if you want reliable prompt service that is reasonable on the purse strings too. I will definitely be using the company again.
Katy – 29th March 2015
From the moment I went to the shop, my experience of buying a mother of the groom outfit was an absolute pleasure! The quality of clothes, the alterations and Oxana’s lovely personality deserve 5 stars! Do visit this shop, you won’t be disappointed!
Liz Y – 21st March 2015
They were one of the only bridal shops I visited which has size 8-10 dresses in store. The shop has a particularly lovely atmosphere and all ladies have been so helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process.

Natalie True Ink

I was lucky enough to find my dream wedding dress at Minster Designs, Oxana and Donna listened to what I wanted and really made the whole experience perfect throughout, The service was so great we also chose to hire the groomsmen suits and purchase shoes from there.

Cassandra Wiltshire

I actually can’t recommend Oxana and her team enough, they are incredibly professional and caring and made the whole process of hiring suits for groomsmen and family who were all over the country (and one in NZ!) easy and stress free. It is such a pleasure to work with highly skilled people who have such a passion for what they do and this is very obvious from the minute you walk into the shop. Xx

Kirsty Eames

Okay. So I went into minster with the wedding dress I had already brought elsewhere intending to find a veil. I only walked out with a new wedding dress. A veil. A headpiece and 3 bridesmaid dresses. The quality of the dresses are on another level. I had travelled everywhere to look for dresses and the last shop I needed to pop into.. little did I know was a gorgeous small boutique with some of the most beautiful dresses. Oxanna could see that I wasn’t 100 percent in love with my dress I had brought elsewhere and my mum knew it too. She said did I want to look at one dress that said would suit me.. I said yes. And fell in love instantly. It didn’t weigh 100 tons so I knew I could dance and sit in it without the hassle. And she even had the perfect veil and headpiece too. I felt instantly settled and happy. I also got the look I was waiting for from my mum. ? Oxanna was perfect and very patient consider I was messaging her a lot. She also fitted all 3 of my bridesmaids with stunning dresses. I cannot recommend this place any more. Trust me when I say the quality is totally different. You will know when you go and visit. ??

Grace Khadira

Such stunning designs and a truly beautiful shop. The perfect place for any bride to be. A really lovely bridal shop xx
Danielle Manton-Kelly – 26th February 2017
A fantastic service from Oxana, being a curvy girl I was very nervous about my first experience dress shopping! I couldn’t have been made to feel more at ease and felt as if she knew me and what designs would look good on me. I can’t wait for the rest of my journey with you! Thank you so much x
Helen Annall – 12th February 2017
Oxana is so lovely and helpful, the shop is absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t have wished for a better service! So excited to have my first fitting – Thank you Minster Designs x

Michelle Brooks – 3rd August 2016
I went to Minster Bridal Boutique last week and found my dream wedding dress. The experience was just fabulous and Minster Bridal Boutique was the only shop in Dorset that had exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Oxana. She is so friendly and very helpful. Oxana offered her professional opinion which was so refreshing also. I could not recommend them enough. I had the most lush time an found my perfect dress. xx

Hannah Froud – 22nd August 2015
I have just ordered EVERYTHING for my big day from Minster Designs. Why? Because Oxana made me feel so incredibly special. Nothing was too much for her, even my own little entourage! My dress is beautiful & being the only supplier in the area for my dress it feels unique to me. I cannot wait to keep working with her towards our wedding. Thank you Oxana. X
Raquel Skinbob – 24th July 2015
I can’t thank Oxana enough for everything she has done with my dress and for being extremely patient and understanding for an extremely fussy and busy bride to be. She’s made me feel at ease and can’t do enough to help.
Gabby Alder – 24th July 2015
Absolutely fantastic service. Fast and friendly. Fantastic work on my dress. Would highly recommend!
Samantha Jane Battye – 24th July 2015
Bought my wedding dress from Minster Designs, after only popping in to browse. The little things really made a difference. Oxana got the bubbly out when we talked alterations which made the experience special, unlike other shops I have been to. The appointment slots are long enough so you don’t bump into other brides and have the full attention you need. I was also able to order all accessories in store from brochure to match my dress. Above all, for the service and a high quality of dress, it is affordable. I was so shocked when Oxana told me the final total! This shop is highly recommended for any bride! X
Rio Greenslade – 25th June 2015
Oxana at Minster Designs was fantastic to work with and did such a great job on my bridesmaid dresses. She was quick, precise and reliable. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!
Stacey H – 29th March 2015
Oxana is incredible! I can’t recommend her enough. Not just a lovely person but so talented. My wedding dress needed alterations to fit me but she went beyond that and kept working on it patiently until it was perfect, now I have a completely unique dress, I love it and can’t thank you enough.
Janine J – 27th February 2015
Great Service and a very quick turnaround for alterations to my suit. Thanks.
James G – 9th January 2015

Hayley Simone

Thank you Oxana and Donna for helping me through the process of choosing my beautiful Martina Liana dress and accessories. You were professional throughout and nothing was too much trouble even when I descended on you with my three children aged 1 2 and 5 and my chief bridesmaid for four bridesmaids dresses. You made us all feel very special. Your inhouse alterations were very good value for money. Added to that you were able to help with suits for Daniel and his groomsmen and made the whole process effortless. Thank you for your friendly unassuming approach we would thoroughly recommend you to other couples about to start working towards their dream wedding Troy and Daniel Mitchell.

Troy & Laine

The best wedding dress shopping ‘experience’! Very friendly, accommodating and empathetic. I was made to feel a million dollars when I found my dress! Thank you!

Laura Ratcliffe

I visited 10 different bridal shops before I even tried on a single dress, no where was quite right until I walked into Minster Designs Bridal Boutique. From the moment i walked in i knew that was where i was going to find my dress. Oxanas service in second to none. She is the very very best. The service i received the whole way through was impeccable. Oxana is a natural perfectionist, i found my dream dress and no matter how many i tried on i was never rushed. The boutique was always shut for one on one personal service.
Oxana ended up doing my whole entire bridal party as after meeting her i knew no one would even come close to her expertise.
Oxana dressed our whole bridal party and groomsmen; Myself as the bride, 7 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, Groom, 2 best men, 5 ushers, 1 page boy and both of our sets of parents. Oxana worked with the florist to ensure all colours of flowers matched perfectly our attire. Oxana even matched my wedding jewlerry and tiara to my dress.
She really is truly amazing and i would highly recommend, my whole wedding experience with her was spectacular and everything was more than perfect on the day (even with such a large wedding party).
Thank you so much, Sebrina xx

Sebrina Drew

Cannot thank Oxana enough for today. I found my dream dress! Oxana made me feel comfortable and allowed me to try on many different styles … She also allowed me to stay in my favourite for longer than I should have done! Such expert advice and I have complete trust in her incredible seamstress skills! I couldn’t be happier … Thanks again.

Keshia Leigh

Thanks so much for helping me find my dress and for your help! Can’t wait to wear it! xx
Justine Zimmermann – 23rd February 2017
Meeting with Oxana at Minster Designs was a lovely experience from walking through the door to helping choose the perfect dress. She has an incredible selection of bridal gowns. Oxana was extremely friendly and welcoming to me and my family. I couldn’t recommend this bridal boutique enough. I cannot wait to go back for my fitting!! I’m in love with my wedding dress!! 😀
Sarah Bright – 30th January 2017

Oxana was so helpful and made me feel very comfortable. She suggested my dress and I love it. Definitely recommend this lovely shop.
Laura Upward – 22nd September 2016
I had the most amazing experience at Minster Designs. I really can’t thank Oxana enough for making both mine and my mum’s day so special and actually find me a beautiful dress which I never thought I would find! I was very emotional before coming here as all the dresses I had previously tried just did nothing for me. Oxana knew exactly what I wanted and understaood everything I was asking for in a dress. Really can’t recommend this shop enough! Thank you again for making my day so special.
Chelsea Brook – 3rd September 2016
I can honestly say that Minster Designs is the best wedding dress shop I’ve been in, and not just because I found my dream dress, but it was the service, help and advice that really made it special. It was such a lovely experience, rather than a pushy sale that some shops seek. I genuinely had fun, and the dresses are gorgeous! Thank you so much for your help and patience Oxana, I can’t wait for my dress to arrive!!

Danielle Marie – 30th April 2016
I visited Minster Designs last week with my Mum, Sister, Gran and bridesmaid Helen afater making an appointment. Oxana greeted us with true warmth and professionalism. We were all made extremely comfortable and I myself was put at ease. With a year to go I went in with a view to just getting ideas, but in fact left having put a deposit down on the dress I had fallen in love with (confirmed by the tears of mum et al). I am truly looking forward to the fitting process with Oxana as she was truly lovely and we were alll most impressed by her service.
Jessica Fewings – 20th November 2015
Popped in today to have a browse and was greeted by a big smile and a warm welcome!!! Oxana was so helpful, the gowns were different to what’s in the other shops in the area and she gave lots of ideas to make them even more unique! I will certainly be back to have a look at the new collection!! Amazing service, lovely experience, a designer with an eye for detail! Love it!! 100% recommend x
Jocelyn Braidy – 7th August 2015

Thank you so much for altering my dress. It fits perfectly and it is so professionally done that you never know it had been altered. Thank you for your excellent and speedy service. xx
Ingrid F – 31st March 2015
Oxana altered my wedding dress and 3 bridesmaid dresses. I’m extremely pleased with the finished result and my dress now fits perfectly. Oxana was really friendly and extremely professional throughout the process – providing me with regular updates. My 3 bridesmaids dresses are required length, hip, and bust alterations. All dress alterations were completed in a quick time period. I would recommend Oxana for any alterations required.
Sam D – 29th March 2015
