Customer Reviews


 I came to your shop in February, after spending hours looking in the traditional Mother of the Bride shops, it took less than an hour to find the dress.

 My daughter got married almost two weeks ago and I would like to say ‘Thank you’ because I received so many compliments about my outfit which made me feel great. I was stopped by a member of the congregation to be told it was the best Mother of the Bride outfit she had seen!

 Should my other two children get married I will come straight to you.

The wedding was wonderful last Friday, and we were so lucky with the weather even though, on Friday morning, the forecast was awful!  We had sunshine all day. 

 I  want to say a big "thank you" for my lovely outfit.  I had many nice comments and I felt very special wearing my dress, coat and hat.  Of course, it was set off with my beautiful Emmy shoes and clutch bag!

Good Morning Suzannah

I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the nice weather we have had recently.

 I would like to thank you and Courtney for all you did for me in perfecting  my most lovely  mother of the bride outfit. I felt very comfortable in it and had many complimentary comments.

 We had a most amazing day despite the weather . Afraid the rain came down all morning but as the bride and groom signed the register in the Church the sun shone.

 I have attached a picture for you so that you can see your stunning but simply elegant dress , exactly what I wished for.

 Thank you once again and hope to see you again soon.

 Kind Regards

Hi Suzannah
just wanted to say thank you for my dress - it was a great success and soooooooooo comfy - I had no problem being in it all day.
The celebrations ended around 3.30-am and a lot of fun was had by all - I have sent the link of some of the photos from the day and you can see what a happy occasion it was.

 I decided this week at work only to wear clothes by the lovely Suzannah Crabb ( Not only did it prove to myself just how many lovely dresses and tops I have purchased over the last couple of years from this brilliant lady as I wore a different piece very day (!), it also showed just what a fab designer person she is as I got loads of compliments! - Beth-Tea Dresses and Joanie Shift 


Hi Suzannah,

The wedding was on Saturday and was brilliant for many reasons! Wonderfully happy bride and groom, great weather, super food and the best band I’ve heard in years-  we danced all night! For me my DRESS was a huge highlight as it is just beautiful. It fitted like a glove and I was so comfortable in it. When I have some photographs I’ll send you one.

Love Sarah Finnegan Sarah -Mother of the bride. Seriously Me Forties Lipstick Made to Measure with sleeves.


Many thanks again for helping me to feel so good about myself! Hi Suzannah, hope all is well with you! I wanted to send you a couple of pics of our wedding in NZ, as I know you were keen to see how it all turned out! It was a great day, and the weather held out for us on the beach, just! Everyone loved the dress and thought it was really different -it was an amazing day, so thank you! TONIA-Etiquette wedding dress


Hope you had a great holiday and are feeling well.  Thought you might like to know that I had LOADS of compliments about my bright pink and lipstick dresses at the wedding this weekend.  I felt great in both.  My hubbie and 6 year old son like the lilac one best so I look forward to wearing that too in due course.

Thank you for my beautiful dresses and I will no doubt pop back later in the year.

 The dress and hat are exquisite. I could not be happier! Thanks so much for the beautiful wedding dress and hat. The wedding is on Thursday and I will make sure I send you a picture! Katherine:Hudson Oyster and Beaded Pill Box

I wore the green dress last night.

It looked fantastic and was so comfortable.

I received lots of compliments about the dress.

I spent most of the evening dancing and was amazed that at the end there was not a crease to be seen on the dress.  It looked as good as when I had put it on.

Thank for designing the most gorgeous dress.

With huge sadness i will return this beautiful dress as it is too tight around my bottom. I have contemplated all kinds of restrictive underwear! Can I just say it was a delight to receive all wrapped in tissue and ribbon and was more lovely than I anticipated. Once I have reduced the curves a bit I would not hesitate to order from you again.

The green dress has arrived safely and it now fits absolutely perfectly. I think that is the size for the future. It couldn’t be better.

All best, Alice

Tailored Petal Peg Dress 2/6/11

My dresses arrived this morning, bang on time, which is remarkable, given that you were waiting for new fabric and then had to have the dress made up, and it was a bank holiday.
I am delighted with both dresses.  My wedding dress fits perfectly, is a perfect length and looks fantastic."
