I ended up buying a dress from Contessa, because wherever I have searched for dresses they really didn’t seem like worth of the price they were asking. And something a high quality, more detailed dress like contessa has, no other bridal shops had. It was a pleasure to buy a fully 3D flower dress at a reasonable price, if you compare with other shops, I assure you, that you would also choose Contessa like me. I enjoyed my wedding dress, felt myself like a princess became a queen, with my beautiful crown, and I didn’t need no jewellery to add on. The dress itself was very very rich in details. It took me 2 months to make up my mind what style I want, another 2 and a half months trying on those mermaid dresses I was thinking of, and I ended up buying a Princess Cut dress at the last spot, last moment decision. That is when I came chose a dress, tried it on, was about to give it to a alteration. And then boom, my dream dress caught my eyes on a screen player. I saw it, and I felt, that is the dress I would like to wear. And then Happy Ever After, we exchanged vows.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for your fantastic service. It was the perfect dress and I would never have found it in the other Dubai boutiques. Alterations were done promptly and to a high standard. I’ve enclosed a photo of me in the dress on the day.
I was in Dubai on a quest to find my wedding dress. Initially I had in mind to make my dress from scratch and had visited some designers in Dubai who had given me sketches I decided last minute to get a readymade dress. I went around but didn’t see anything that wowed me. I remembered I had a screen shot of contessa’s info so I decided to give them a call. Got there, picked out some dresses to try on and honestly, I jumped in excitement when I found my dress..we all had a good laugh in the studio that day. I had not met the owner Mohammed then, but the in-store team was really pleasant, they encouraged me that I would be able to lose the weight needed to fit the dress perfectly! So I’m on my diet now! Loved the dress and absolutely loved the veil they are making for me. Eventually in making my final transaction, I met Mohammed the Owner who was very kind. Can’t wait to pick up my dress in November!!
The Contessa team in JLT including Mohammed, Heidi and all the lovely ladies are simply amazing. I went to two other shops before this. One boutique had the worst customer service I have ever experienced and I couldn’t imagine buying my dress from there after I was treated so poorly and I saw how they treat the dresses as well. Contessa was only my third shop when I went in and it looked small, I wasn’t sure if I would find anything. But they have A LOT of options and beautiful dresses. Mohammed picked out a dress for me that I wasn’t even sure about on the hanger, but when I put it on, I knew it was the one and refused to take it off. I bought the dress the next day with some accessories as well. I purchased my tiara from there which was gorgeous and I didn’t find anything like it in the other shops I visited. I came back for my fitting 3 weeks before my wedding and the wonderful ladies at Contessa fit me and they also had a great idea of adding a tulle wrap sleeve because I didn’t want a strapless gown. When I came back for my final fitting the dress was absolutely PERFECT!! The tulle sleeve wrap was so elegant and the finishing was perfect. Everyone was so helpful and I am so happy I chose Contessa for my bridal needs. Thank you team!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Hi Mohammed, Heidi,
My wedding took place successfully in January in New Zealand! As promised, here are a few pictures from my wedding. Thank you so much for your help with the dress - you won't believe the number of compliments I received on the dress!
It was a lovely experience, and I’m so happy with my choice, couldn’t ask for anything else, its making me more excited for the wedding day
I still haven’t booked my trip back to Dubai, but most probably will be end of February to try on my wedding gown one last fitting.
Thank you so much for everything, and can’t wait to send you the pictures from the wedding day.
