"After visiting several other bridal shops with a mixture of helpful and not so helpful staff! I was so relieved to find Karen at Proposals, not only did she have a fabulous selection of dresses, but herself and Kay were really helpful & friendly, nothing too much trouble. Proposals was recommended by a friend, and I will certainly be recommending Karen to anyone I know getting married "
"After months of searching for my wedding dress all over Warwickshire I finally found Proposals, I knew instantly I would buy my dress from here. Not only were the dresses all beautiful but Karen and her girls made the whole experience special for me. Their attention to detail, care and attention was without parallel. Most bridal shops can be pretentious and pushy, definitely not at Proposals! Thank you. "
"I would recommend Proposals to everyone looking for their perfect bridal gown. The shop is beautiful and Karen and her staff are so friendly and welcoming. I immediately felt at home! Karen is an amazing seamstress and the alterations to my dress were perfect. She even did alterations for my 2 bridesmaids dresses (which were bought online) and they were so pleased. I really enjoyed the whole experience whilst visiting Proposals - I could never wait to get back for my fittings! It was fun and relaxed. I promised Karen a photograph of me in my dress on our big day, so will be visiting again soon! Thank you again to Karen and her team. "

"I would highly recommend any bride to be go to Proposals. I wish to thank Karen very much for helping (a short bride) to have a perfect lenghth dress for my big day. Thank you for the wonderful service which made me very comfortable. "
"Well what can i say about Karen, she is absolutely amazing!!! I bought my dress from a different shop and found Karen for my alterations. It was so much work due to having lace and so many layers, and she made little work of it. She did an absolutely amazing job in no time at all and even picked little details out to be sorted to make sure the dress was absolutely perfect! Even her daughter did an absolutely amazing job with infilling a jewelled belt for my wedding dress, and you wouldn't even know it had to be done!! I couldn't believe the difference when i put my dress back on for my last fitting!! She also did my bridesmaid's dress, which again had so much detail to mess around with for the alterations, and she made it fit perfect, even my bridesmaid couldn't believe it and how well it fitted after!! Karen is absolutely amazing at her work and doesn't waste time. Karen has done so much work for me, and even the little bits that matter! I thank her so so much!! Have recommended her to so many people, and would definitely take anything i needed altering in future to her without doubt!!! "
"I went into proposals with a image of the wedding dress I thought I wanted, after trying on many I the style of these dresses which the staff were so patient with, I found the perfect dress which turned out to be the complete opposite to what I had originally imagined. It was the Cinderella Bridal Gown, I loved the dress however I wanted sleeves and the back I my dress to have material in the see through area, the staff were very helpful, helped me to design what I wanted, gave me ideas but most off they made it possible and without any problems they created the beautiful dress I choose to a beautiful elegant, an very detailed dress, it was more than I had imagined. I was not the easiest I customers, and wanted the dress to suit my wedding theme which was English/Irish/Indian, and with the help of the staff here they created this. I can not thank you all enough, you helped to make sure I wore the perfect dress for me, I really did feel like a beautiful bride, especially when you only had 3 weeks to do my dress. Thank you all so much you are all such a lovely approachable friendly team. Nicola "
"Visited Saturday 27th February with my daughter Sarah-Jane and came away with a wonderful wedding dress, just wanted to say a big thank you, you were so helpful working with ideas that my daughter had, and coming up with some suggestions that we hadn't thought of. Would highly recommend a visit to everyone. Thanks and best wishes. "
"I didn't buy my wedding dress from Proposals but I really wish I had! I ordered my dress through another store but when my dress arrived they refused to do the changes they had previously agreed (even suggesting I use a nappy pin for my bustle). I contacted Proposals as I'd heard good things and despite it only been a few weeks to my wedding Karen said she couldn't see a problem making the changes I wanted even though my dress was very delicate. The shop is lovely and it seems to have lots of dress choices. I went in a few times for fittings and and each time the staff were friendly and accommodating even though I hadn't bought the dress from their shop. Unlike some bridal shops the staff here clearly know how to make each bride feel special and unique. My dress was beautiful before I took it to Proposals but Karen and her team made it even more amazing and it fitted me perfectly (and she put a small crystal button and loop for the bustle instead of the nappy pin the other shop suggested!). I honestly wish I'd gone there from the start. Thanks for everything Caroline "
"Karen and everyone at Proposals provided an amazing service with my wedding dress alterations, I was so pleased with the results and felt a million dollars on the day. They offer such a personal service which is friendly and professional, I would always recommend Proposals to any bride to be. "
"My sister was the bride and had several problems with different shops, she finally found excellent service at Proposal's. We had bought the brides dress and 3 bridesmaids dresses elsewhere! We decided to get all alterations done with Karen, and with the dresses being late and arriving only 1week before the day, it was a tight timeframe! My dress arrived a size 22 when it should have been a 16! Karen manage to make it fit perfectly in only 3 days for a little cost where it would have been so much more expensive anywhere else! Karen is amazing and all the staff there! Would definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you "
"Today I chose my wedding dress. I went to a few bridal shops and online stores. Proposals Bridal Studio were by far the best. Right from booking the appointment they couldn't have been more kind, helpful and interested. I was made to feel so comfortable and welcome even though I didn't have a big budget! I was offered refreshments and even cuddles when needed and when we left! I knew that this would be the place I would finally find the right dress for me. There were lots of dresses in many styles and sizes. The ladies couldn't have done more to make me feel at ease and like I wasn't wasting their time (And I wasn't an easy customer and was in there a while!) I can't recommend them enough. Thank you Proposal's Bridal Studio for your time, help and effort. I feel so happy now I have my dress with the 'wow' factor I was after x "
"Very good service. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very good range of gowns and a very friendly and enthusiastic staff. I had found a perfect dress with a little alteration which was made immediately in the shop. Thank you for your help Paige once more. "
"I visited this shop along with many others, I was greeted by Paige who was very helpful and friendly and allowed me to try on as many dresses as I wanted;the selection is fantastic. Even though I found my dress from somewhere else, after a complete nightmare where another Coventry shop almost ruined it with their shoddy alterations, I called Karen from Proposals who was able to not only fix what the others had destroyed but alter my dress faultlessly, the service and work was so good that I also took my bridesmaids dresses in and mother if the bride's so that they could be perfected also. After a near disaster I am extremely grateful to Karen for saving the day and doing such a wonderful job. Whether its buying a dress or just the alterations needed, I thoroughly recommend Proposals. "
"I visited Proposals as my first bridal shop and fell in love with the first dress I tried on. I'd been told by friends that the staff make all the difference when you are looking for your wedding dress, I can honestly say this is true. Kay was lovely, she made me feel comfortable and she was enthusiastic. Nothing was too much trouble and I really felt like she was there to help as much as was needed. I didn't feel pressured and there was no hard selling. It all was very personal and very private. I would highly recommend this shop to any brides! I'm very glad I chose to go there first. "
"I got my wedding dress from proposals 4 yrs ago for my wedding friendly staff and karen is just amazing helpful and takes the stress out of everything so much so I recommend proposals to all my friends I'm renewing my vows next yr and defo will be getting my dress from proposals1 "
"Amazing shop with amazing staff. Nothing is too much trouble for Karen and her team. Would wholeheartedly recommend to any bridal party. Thankyou Karen. "
"Having searched for a wedding dress I had in mind, I finally found it at Proposals. Karen was helpful, knowledgable and gave her opinions in an honest and professional way. Her alterations were superb and my dress was amazing on the day. If you are to go to any Bridal shop in Coventry then pay a visit to Proposals. "
"I am absolutely over the moon with Proposals Bridal Studio. I was a extremely nervous about shopping for a bridal gown as I had no idea what I was looking for. I was greeted by Paige and orientated to the layout of the gowns with my Mum and sister which was very helpful. We were left to have a look and pick a few styles to try on and Paige was on hand for any advice. Paige was very knowledgable about the gowns and accessories, she made me feel really comfortable and really made the experience special and one to remember. She listened to things I was suggesting and picked out gowns that she thought would suit my body shape. I loved every second of my visit and so did my Mum and sister, I felt like I was the only "bride to be" in the world! I would recommend Proposals Bridal Studio 100% and I look forward to going back when my dress arrives! Thank you so, so much. "
"I brought my wedding gown from proposals today, I went a few days before and the staff spent 2 hours with me helping they were fantastic went back today for second trying and they were just as helpful a massive thankyou your team are fantastic and did a great job with me your choice of gowns is amazing so much choice, can't wait to pick mine up now, many thanks again would recommend you to everyone, service quality and choice is outstanding on comparison to other bridal shops :-) "
"I had a very specific vision for the dress I wanted for my wedding day. No dress I saw ticked all the boxes but the Ladies at Proposals were very patient, friendly and helpful and completely altered the style of dress from adding colour, removing the train, and making it shorter. I would definitely recommend if you need more than just the normal alteration service. Thank you so much x "
"Although I had not bought my daughter's wedding dress from here Karen has not only shortened the wedding dress but recommended some additional alterations to the skirt that have made it amazing. Karen has also shortened the bridesmaids dresses and at short notice took my dress in too. The work is so professional you would never notice. The atmosphere is relaxed, nothing is too much trouble and have made it such a pleasant experience. Can not thank everyone enough. Anita "
"Tried on my wedding dress and damaged the zip with only 1 week to go to the big day. Rang Bridal Alterations in a panic and was immediately reassured by Karen on the phone to not worry as she will sort it, I can not stress enough how fantastic Karen and her team are ! The repair and alteration was booked yesterday and I have picked up my dress today. A fantastic experience start to finish. This has made such a difference to the run up to the wedding. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a caring , professional, prompt and expert service to look no further. Thankyou Karen. X "
"Getting married today (awake at 4am) this shop s amazing.i had been to so many other shops where because I am a little larger than normal I was made to feel ugly. Not here. I was put t ease straight away and quickly found the dress, the one I fell in lve with. Every time I went back for fittings I was remembered and even things I'd talked about was remember. Sign of being made special. Thank you I can't wait to put the dress on in a few hours! Suzanne "
"I had a relatively low budget and after visiting another Bridal store where i was made to feel awful I was very sceptical about going inside. However, when I entered Paige made me feel extremely welcome and confident that with my budget i would be able to find the perfect wedding gown, which i did, Thank you. "
"I loved my experience here at Proposals Bridal Studio. As a very shy and anxious person all the staff made me feel really comfortable fast, allowing me to take everything at my own pace. They have a wide range of dresses in so many different styles. The price range is also very accommodating for smaller and larger budgets. All the staff are lovely and welcoming. Highly recommend this shop! "
"I have just got back from my wedding in Cyprus which was amazing. What made the day fantastic was how my wedding dress turned out, I am only 5'2 and of slim build. When I first walked into Proposals I was overwhelmed with the dresses on offer and thought how can these dresses be altered to fit my size and frame ?. I was very quickly put at ease by the staff at Proposals who assured me that any of the dresses could be altered to fit any size, after choosing my second gown as I realised the first gown wasn't for me. I found exactly what I required from the moment I put on the second choice dress I couldn't stop smiling. Within 4 weeks my dress was altered to fit my frame I really couldn't believe what Karen and her team had managed to do. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Karen and her staff for their time and professionalism I am one very happy customer :-) "
"Well what can I say...... would highly recommend Karen to anyone and I so wish I lived nearer and not in London. I searched everywhere for these particular Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses in a certain colour that had been discontinued. The weekend I was due to be on a one off trip to Manchester, I discovered Proposals in Conventry had the dress, the colour and sizes I wanted. I was soooo happy, I couldn't believe my luck. The problem I then had was I couldn't get to the shop on the Saturday and the shop was closed on Sundays. Karen kindly offered to take them on the Sunday to a show, so I could collect them, however we could not guarantee getting there on time. Karen gave us her personal number to contact her on our way back to London and she specially opened the shop for us to collect the dresses and she knew how desperate I wanted them. I couldn't believe how helpful she was, it was great and it made my day. Karen was in constant contact with me. If I hadn't already purchased my bride's dress I certainly would have from her. The dresses in her shop were so beautiful, as well as the shop and the service fantastic :-) - thank you so much Karen. Karen even took my details so she could wish me a happy wedding day later in the year - how lovely is that :-) "
"After visiting Proposals, and buying my wedding dress i was made to feel very welcome by karen. she helped me find the perfect dress and made me feel so welcome and comfortable. The service was outstanding and the alteration she did to my dress were amazing it like the dress hasn't even been changed! she spends time only with you, and makes the whole experience very personal to your wedding! I cant thank proposals enough and i would recommend them to any one getting married! "
"Beautifull gowns of all tastes , karen was extremly helpfull to find my perfect dress, i will defently recomend any one i no getting married to use this bridal shop, such an amazing experience x x "
"I was looking for a formal evening gown at short notice and, on the spur of the moment, popped into Proposals one lunchtime when I was passing - I'm so glad I did! They had just the dress I was looking for although it required alterations and these were made promptly and beautifully - you'd never know it's been altered by looking at it! Nothing was too much trouble and they were incredibly helpful. Next time I need a dress, I'll definitely be going back and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for either a wedding dress or evening gown. Thank you so much!! "
"I contacted Karen for my alterations on my wedding dress and all I can say I how comfortable she made me feel from the very first fitting she made me feel so relaxed and knew what she was doing. I would just like to say a big thankyou for helping me with my dress. Karen even took pictures of the final fitting for my mum as she couldn't be there thankyou so much Nikki "
"Excellent choice of gowns, something for everyone and the staff are very friendly. "
"I was extremely nervous about my first visit to a bridal shop, I thought I'd feel very out of place and uncomfortable but everyone at Proposals were so nice and welcoming they made me feel instantly at ease. Karen also ordered in a dress for me that I had fallen in love with whilst browsing on the internet, after trying it on it didn't feel quite right and we soon realised it was just because it had thick straps which swamped me a bit. To my amazement Karen said that she could remove them for me and I'm so glad that I went for it! I now have the most stunning (and unique) dress and the work everyone has put into it has exceeded my expectations. Nothing was too much trouble (I'm getting married abroad next year and they're even going to pack it into my flight box for me), everything was checked with me as we went along to make sure it was all Ok and I've loved every visit to Karen's extremely beautiful shop...I'm really going to miss them! I literally cannot thank Karen and her amazing team enough xxx :O) "
"I went to the NEC wedding show and found "THE DRESS" I instantly fell in love with a beautiful Ian Stuart dress, but unfortunately the one they had wasn't my size. As soon as I got home I went straight on the Internet, typed the name of the designer and the dress name and up popped proposals. I contacted Karen via email after seeing the dress I wanted on the website, and even though it was a Friday evening and I knew the shop was closed, I still got a reply . We arranged for me to go in the next day for me to get my dress and I was so excited. Upon arrival at the store I was highly delighted to see a beautiful building which gave me a great first impression, I walked in the door and the beauty continued inside too. Straight away Karen acknowledged me and I felt at ease, she had the dress ready and waiting in a dressing room. I went in and tried it on and felt amazing. Karen is such a lovely person who is also very professional and helpful, and I've decided that after just meeting her once. My overall experience with Proposals is absolutely brilliant, I am so glad I had the chance to go there and I could not recommend them more!! "
"Not being extremely girly or having any idea of what kind of dress I was looking for Karen and her team came to my rescue. With their knowledge and eye for detail with just one look at me they pointed me in the right direction, I now have the most fabulous dress which is definitely more me than I could have chosen. I'd like to thank the team at Proposals for all of their help, I was made to feel extremely welcome from the start and each time I visited for fittings. I would highly recommend a visit if you are seeking the perfect dress for your big day and service with a friendly smile :-) "
"Karen helped me from start to finish with sorting my wedding gown. She helped make my dress fit perfectly and nothing was to much trouble she also altered my bridesmaid dress again going the extra mile accommodated my bridesmaids diabetic pump by adding a hidy pouch to her dress. Karen made the whole experience as stress free as possible. "
"I cannot recommend Proposals enough. Karen and Paige were absolutely fantastic. I was pretty nervous about finding a wedding dress and had a few poor experiences in other shops. This all changed when proposals took me under their wing. They have an amazing selection of dresses, literally something for everyone. They even managed to make me (someone who doesn't feel comfortable being the centre of attention) feel relaxed and helped me pick the perfect dress. I cannot emphasise enough how happy I was with my dress. The team is professional, efficient, and are clearly very very skilled at what they do. You will not regret getting your wedding dress from proposals. "

"I have just collected my wedding dress which is beautiful and fits perfectly. All the staff at the studio have been very helpful and taken the time in helping me choose my perfect dress! "
"We ordered my daughters prom dress from Carol at Proposals at short notice, 10 days before the prom, as we wanted to make sure lockdown was lifted and that the prom would go ahead before we bought a dress. From the start Carol made my daughter feel relaxed and special. She ordered in the dress which my daughter had chosen but Carol was not happy with the quality and arranged for a new dress to be delivered. We were away until the day before prom and the dress was altered on the morning of the prom within 2 hours. We had the absolute best service from Carol and her team and I would highly recommend them, they really do go the extra mile and make you feel so special thank you so much xx "
"Proposals had just the dress I wanted! Karen and Kay worked hard to meet the tight timescales and make it the perfect dress. Thanks so much - I enjoyed every minute of wearing it and love looking at the photos. "
"Big thankyou to karen and her team .I brought a dress on the Internet for my daughter s prom , it was to long and to big in most places, they have altered the dress and Iit fits beautifully .you wouldnt even know it had been altered. Thankyou so much , I would recommend using you to anyone . "
"Having vistited the shop for the first time, staff are very friendly and willing to help. Lovely atmosphere. Staff will go out of their way to meet your requirements, would recommend the shop to all to be brides! Zahra x "
"An amazing experience at Proposals! After visiting over 30 bridal stores my last stop was Proposals. I was impressed before I even entered the store. The decor is stunning, definitely the most beautiful bridal store in the Midlands. Karen is wonderful! Extremely talented and helpful. Beautiful choice of dresses and accessories. She did an amazing job on my alterations and my flower girl dresses were out of this world! She treated my like a friend and even though she is dealing with loads of brides everyday she would always remember my name when I called. Two days before I was due to fly (I got married in Jamaica), I weighed myself and found I'd lost half a stone without realising. My dress was too big and I called Karen up crying. She was so kind to me. She fitted me in straight away and altered the dress within an hour. I am so thankful to her because I was in absolute despair! Thankyou Karen for all your advice and expertise!! I am so grateful I chose Proposals. I will definitely be recommending you to my family and friends!! "
"Karen and her team have been friendly, helpful and understanding: from the initial choice of bridal gown through to fittings of bridesmaids dresses purchased elsewhere. They have made appointments for fittings around both bride's and bridesmaids' university terms and work schedules, and always welcomed me, mother of the bride, with warm smiles and calming humour! They know their art, and nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend them to anyone I knew who was getting married. "
"Proposals was the first bridal shop I went to...The shop has so much choice, Karen was really helpful and made my first experience of dress hunting a good one! I went to another two today and they didn't come close to the wonderful service And friendly approach I received. Would definately reccommend!! Thank you "
