Lots of choice, lovely helpful staff with no hard sell. Will definitely go back

This was a very exciting day for me and my family and Danielle as One Special Day made it even more special by being excited for us.

Both her and others we so helpful and made it a great experience.

Great personalised service, attention to detail amazing, made me feel very welcome and like I had all the time in the world to make the right choice. Would highly recommend

Danielle made me extremely comfortable with being a bigger size. Fantastic customer service

Fantastic advice and help from everyone, thank you all x

So glad we found this beautiful shop for my daughters prom dress. She had a lovely experience, a beautiful selection of dresses and the girls are just so helpful and put my daughter at ease immediately. Highly recommend

Me and my freind come here for a wedding dress fitting on Saturday Danielle who seen to us was very nice and helpful definitely recommend coming here

Amazing dresses and the staff went above and beyond for my daughter

Can't fault the guys here at all, so helpful and welcoming, even making me a brew while my daughter tried in prom dresses which we ended up going home with one finally, was so impressed that this will be my first stop for my wedding dress hunt soon, thank you for making my daughter feel confident and happy about her choice

Lovely team and were so helpful. Beautiful selection of dresses within reasonable price range.

I found One Special Day when shopping for prom dresses for my middle daughter so when my youngest needed a prom dress I made an appointment here straight away. The staff are so lovely and welcoming and my daughter felt like a princess trying on all the different dresses. She was able to try on as many as she wanted and was not rushed at all. The staff were helping her and knew exactly what dress style would flatter her figure. Dresses are very reasonably priced and guarantee they will not sell the same dress (even in a different colour) to anybody else from the same school. Can not recommend highly enough!

Absolutely amazing people, my daughter is so happy with her dress. They looked after us so well.

Very lovely staff and lovely atmosphere. Had a wonderful experience

My daughter was getting pretty stressed.The staff were absolutely brilliant.We came away with a beautiful dress.Highly recommended.

Shop here! Paula and the team are fantastic, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Especially dealing with a teen who didn't know what her prom dress should look like. They're kind patient and offer great advice on what size and shape suits your body type, and then get all the dresses out to suit you. There are no pushy sales, and they're all about your experience and what makes you feel good, whether you want to buy a dress or not. Amazing place with amazing staff! I highly recommend it.

Lovely people and lovely dresses. The dressing room experience made me feel so fancy. Purchased wedding dress, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses all from here including veil, tiaras and everything else. So easy when you can get everything from one place!

Recently purchased my daughter’s prom dress. Staff very friendly and helpful; can’t really do enough for you.

Everyone there was very attentive and so polite. Especially the lady who looked after me named molly she was so lovely and couldn’t do enough to make me and my mum feel comfortable. Such an amazing experience for my first time trying on wedding dresses I couldn’t fault any of them. Such a lovely day! Thank you to all the girls who looked after us!

Just amazing. What a fabulous experience i had yesterday. On arrival we was all welcomed by friendly faces and offered drinks. I was then asked to look at the collection of dresses they had whilst I was waiting. Once she came over, which wasnt a long wait she gave me tokens and told me to pick as many dresses as I wanted to try on and that she would bring them to me one by one once I was in the dressing room. I tried them on and they was very honest with me on what they thought (in a nice way) they told me I looked beautiful and what suited me which was really lovely and made me feel good about myself. I picked a dress and payed a deposit and it was such an easy process, I cant wait to put the dress on again and thank you for helping me find it and make me feel very welcome. Would highly recommend

Very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, we didn't find the prom dress this time but hoping to come back when a new delivery comes in, we were close. It was a lovely experience.

Fantastic service, Danni was very professional and cant wait for our next visit

Fantastic dress shop, made my daughter feel like a princess, lots of beautiful dressed she found it hard to pick one, finally found her the perfect dress for her prom and the price really is the best around. Thank you paula for your absolutely amazing skills

First place we visited for a prom dress and ended up falling in love with one and purchasing it! Everything was perfect about our appointment. Felt very comfortable, relaxed and special. Thank you for making my daughters experience so perfect x
PS we had a 45 min appointment booked but it turned out to be about 2 hours and trying on 6 dresses. Never felt rushed, didn’t even realise!

A lovely setting, fantastic service and gorgeous dresses. This was my third attempt at finding a dress for my day - I had lost hope.

But I came away with the most beautiful gown, two bridesmaid dresses and a flower girl dress!

I’m so happy, would definitely recommend One Special Day. The furnishings, staff and stock ... out of this world!

Very professional staff who made the Prom Dress experience a pleasure. Nothing was too much trouble & my daughter said " Yes to the dress"!

Danielle and molly were absolutely fab, my mum and I left the shop feeling happy after a pleasant and enjoyable experience! It was relaxed and at our own pace, they listened to my ideas and acted on them with out pressuring. Danielle's main concern were the brides and they're happiness what ever that meant for them.

The staff were really attentive and not pushy. They listened to what style etc we wanted and made appropriate suggestions. We didn’t feel rushed or pressured. Would definitely recommend.

I had a fabulous experience at One special day and Paula really looked after me, helping me find my perfect dress. Thank you and I can’t wait to come back for my fitting appointment

All the lovely ladies made me & my family feel so relaxed & welcome. You all couldn’t do enough to help. The choice & price of dresses is excellent, along with the the repayment options. I highly recommend one special day to anyone looking for a bridal gown.

Danielle and molly were very professional and helpful. Both were friendly to talk to and I was made to feel really comfortable. Nothing wass too much for them!! I would definitely recommend. Xx

Wonderful service and patience! Super range of dresses. Thank you for helping me say yes to my wedding dress!

After an awful experience at another shop, who ordered me the wrong prom dress, the ladies here were amazing. The service is fantastic, Molly was fabulous. We bought a gorgeous prom dress. The choice is amazing, by far the best shop in the North West. We had a wonderful time here. I'll be coming back here to buy my wedding dress. I would recommend this shop to anyone. Molly is a credit to you. X

Although I’ve not bought my dress quite yet I will most definitely be getting my dress from one special day! What a brilliant experience and I can’t wait to come back! Thank you xx

The ladies at One Special Day are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for them, would definitely recommend a visit - Jenni

Listened to our needs and advised as and when. Knowlede of stock and were able to answer questions. Not at all pushy about selling!

Brilliant service, all the staff are lovely welcoming and nice friendly atmosphere. highly recommend

So lovely. I was shopping for bridesmaids dresses and the experience from start to finish was fantastic. There was plenty of choice and Danielle was super helpful

The staff at One Special Day are totally amazing at their jobs. Dani and Paula made me feel so welcome on my visit to them. From the moment you step through the doors they want to ensure your visit is a memorable experience. They are both a wealth of knowledge and expertise and will try to advise you on dress shapes to suit your shape. As a plus size person I was apprehensive about looking for a dress but here they made me feel beautiful. If you are looking for a dress for a wedding or prom you will love this shop. Thank you for making me fall in love with my dress. They help you into your dress or if you prefer you can do it yourself. As I have mobility problems Dani helped me and was supportive all round. Five stars is not high enough for this amazing shop. I am not a dress wearer but left excited with my purchase all down to the exceptional service they provided. Please stop by as you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous service for myself (bride) and my bridesmaid. Lovely warm welcome on arrival, not rushed for timing, great service and couldn’t do enough for us. Will definitely recommend to other friends and family. Thank you

I got my dress and love it! Would highly recommend One Special Day! They made me feel like a princess so warm and welcoming! Thank you xx
