I am currently messaging you from a very hot lanzarote! I thought you may like a photo of my bridesmaids in the dresses we got off you! They looked stunning. The day was incredible and the weather was just amazing! Thank you for all your hard work xx

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did in helping me find my dream wedding dress for my wedding on the 24th June. The dress was even more then I could of hoped for and I absolutely loved it! After having a wobble with the dress I first picked (Maggie- Yasmina) you guided me in the right direction by actually pulling dresses that you thought I would love and without you I would never have found my dress so thank you! I can't put into words how amazing my experience with prudence gowns has been and I would recommend you and the shop to anyone! And to top it off the belt just added that extra pop of sparkle that I was after and just MADE the dress!
Once again I truly am so incredibly grateful! I've attached a couple pictures from the wedding.
All the best for the future and I hope you keep kicking ass in finding wedding dresses for brides, they will be so lucky to be in your hands!
Hiya! I'm an Exeter bride, thank you for my dress here's a few snaps. I had a very relaxed photography style so there's no really posed ones of the dress, sorry! It's the Ronald Joyce Erin, but with added sleeves... For flattering fist bumps!GALLERY
Thank you for helping me find my beautiful dress - it looked amazing and I wish I could wear it again!!!
I am going to sell it in a few weeks so someone else can also have the joy that I had!
Thank you again for all your help x x

Thank you! It really was a perfect day and the dress was definitely the one! I have it still hung up in its bag on the side of my wardrobe. I have been tempted a few times to put it back on and wear it around the houseGALLERY

My experience of Prudence was so relaxing and enjoyable, something I hadn't experienced in other stores. Whenever anyone asks where I got my dress from, i proudly say 'Prudence Gowns'!

Hey ladies, I would just like to thank you all for when I came to pick my dress at the Exeter store it was a year ago that I picked my dress out, I never expected to leave with the dress I did but putting it all together on my wedding day made me realise that how much Stef helped me to pick the perfect dress!! I was really worried as I did found out I was pregnant after buying the dress but even 8 months pregnant the dress still fitted and I felt like a princess (that hard to feel when you feel like a whale ha) but I just want to thank you all xxGALLERY

Hello Prudence family! Pictures as promised, dress, shoes and veil all from Prudence Exeter, married last Sunday at the amazing Deer Park, thank you for helping me find my dream dress!
The day really was perfect we were so lucky after that week of rain, we buried a sausage the night before at the hotel, old wives tale but seemed to work lol, thank you so much!
Walking past a unopened bridal boutique on my way back to the car after a horrendous experience at a different dress shop, was my first experience of prudence, the friendly face of the girl locking the door telling me we open in a few days, book an appointment via Facebook. So I did. I was a nervous mess, I suffer with anxiety so this was never going to be easy for me, I took my mum my sister and my soon to be mother in law for encouragement and honesty. As soon as we walked in the door and met Stacy, I relaxed, every second of my experience from trying on dresses to laughing at some styles on me. I hated lace never wanted to try it on, I trusted Stacy's opinion to try a lace dress, the second I saw my self I was overwhelmed, I think I had the dress taken on and off me 3 or 4 times for me it was hard to say it was the one, anxious about making that final decision, but I was never made to feel like I was annoying or being difficult. The dress Stacy chose was the one. It was perfect and made me feel amazing I had the crying moment I'm unsure if there was a dry eye in the room. I'm so thankful for everyone at prudence for making my experience magical you all really are the best!! I can't wait to frame my dress the most beautiful garment I own thanks to you!!! Lots of love your First Exeter Bride...!!!GALLERY

A massive Thank You to all the prudence gowns staff, they were all very friendly and helpful. I loved my wedding dress, didn't want to take it off! All of my guest complimented me on how amazing it was with all the little crystal detail. Would definitely recommend you, Thanks so much xoxGALLERY
Can't thank Prudence Gowns enough for their in put on our wedding day. With their massive selection of designer gowns I most certainly found my dream dress and accessories, what a lovely bunch of girlies to style you. XGALLERY
Prudence gowns has an amazing team and are so helpful and friendly. I loved dress shopping at prudence gowns we had a great laugh and they knew what kind of dress would suit me which I loved. Sonya made me feel so welcome and comfortable and was happy to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend prudence gowns to anyone time and time again. Love Charmaine Browne xxGALLERY
I married Mike on 18th July 2015. We had a civil wedding followed by a hand fasting at Mount Edgecumbe. We had a fairy and dragon theme with pink, black and purple as our colours... Very dramatic! I had an unlimited budget for my dress and knew I wanted something unusual but I found a dress on your sale rail which. With a little customization, would be completely perfect! Your bridal consultant, Trudi, and seamstress, Anna, where absolutely amazing and helped me achieve a unique, perfect dress for the day. I could hear gasps as I walked to my husband to be and I still have people telling me how beautiful the dress was! The dress was a corset and skirt by Alexia and was customised with a silver sequin underlayer on the skirt making it shimmer and sparkle like magic, and the corset was edged with pink, black and purple crystals with clear AB crystals on the centre. The corset back was changed to pink as I wore pink wings with flower details and this made them flow better together. The customer service I received was flawless and I continue to recommend your shop to everyone. Good luck with your new shop in Exeter. I hope to be visiting you again soon with my future daughter in law! Thank you for giving me my absolute dream dress! XxxGALLERY
Appointment Information +
How many people can I bring with me?
We ask you to limit your guests to 3 people - this means every bottom will have a seat during your appointment. As much as we all love opinions, over the years we have found that 3 is just right without causing the bride too much confusion!
For brides with a true entourage we ask you to stick to weekday appointment where you can truly spread out - often with the store to yourself!
Now, we are the first to want a cuddle and many of our consultants are kiddied up themselves…However, at weekends we have a strict no under 12 policy - it hurts us because they can be gorgeous but we are just too busy to accommodate your kiddies.
During the week we will welcome them with open arms and we will try to help you keep them amused as much as possible but please keep in mind we are a bridal boutique and not a “safe” zone for playing in. We also ask for calmness and respect for others, there may be other brides and their families in the shop, who have the right to enjoy a very special emotional moment without interruption.
How long are the appointments?
We try to give you as long as we can - we will always allow 1 hour and 30 minutes for our time with you to really focus on your Bridal consultation, however, during the week we may be able to extend this a little when we are really getting into our stride!
We do a variety of other appointment options as well,
Bridal Retry - for when you are popping back with a dress in your head you cannot stop thinking about - this is 1 hour long
Trying your Own Gown - appointments to try on your own gown once it arrives are 1 hour long, you are more than welcome to try on any accessories that you have purchased during this appointment.
Bridesmaids - these run in 1 hour slots where you have all our bridesmaid dresses to choose from.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
Just yourself and a smile!
We provide all the dresses (obviously) but along with that we offer the shoes, veil etc and will help fit the gowns to you.
If you have a special pair of shoes - please feel free to bring those along.
We do suggest white or nude underwear, unless you have some fabulous pants with super heroes on to show off!
Strapless bras can help but not essential.
We request no fake tan as our dresses need to be kept in pristine condition for future brides to try on.
Can I take photographs?
Ok tough one……
Unfortunately, due to copyrights our designers are not fond of their dresses being snapped, therefore, we have tablets in store on which we can take photos of your favourites but we do ask that you keep in mind - you may be a size 10 in a size 16 gown that has been in store for 6 months - this will not shimmer and fit like your new order gown nor will a tablet capture the true look you will have. Try therefore to remember the feeling you have in a gown and not rely on images.
Tips for getting the most from your appointment
Try to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes to your appointment as we can get a little crowded but equally we only have a finite amount of time so please do try to understand if you arrive late we cannot always extend your appointment time to accommodate
Ask loads of questions - we are here to help - use us!
The more information we can get from you and the more questions you ask us the more helpful and advisory we can be when it comes to offering you gowns you may not have thought of - 9 times out of 10 it’s a gown you would never look at twice on the rail that just works when it’s on!
Don’t expect to fall in love straight away!
This sounds an odd thing to say but not every bride has that moment when she bursts into tears and cries that she found THE ONE!
More often than not you have tried on so many dresses that you have it down to 1 or 2 you like and it’s your favourite from that selection
We do love a good cry in store and if a mum or nan starts us off we will sob with the best of them but if you are a more logical non emotional person you may just be more practical about your appointment and not blub at the right moment
Don’t worry though, it doesn’t mean that you’re not doing it right it just means you are not prone to public displays of emotion and that’s ok too!
