As the owner of Miss Bella, I believe that Bridal Industry Awards and Accreditations should be earned, not paid for.
I don’t agree that it is necessary to pay money to “receive” Bridal Awards, Accreditations, Bridal Status, Ratings or to pay Memberships and Advertisement Position Upgrades on Bridal Directories as a Preferred Wedding Supplier.
Many Nominations to Bridal Directories from our wonderful thoughtful Brides will go un-read because I believe an Award should be earned; not paid for. 

The following Tributes are from Cards, Letters, Internet Reviews and Emails we have received from our Clients.

These are Our Awards!!
Thank you for allowing Miss Bella to be part of your Very Special Wedding Day or Debutante Evening!!

Gaye’s reaction when I said “yes to the dress” was absolutely exactly how you’d hope it would be! She was equally exited as myself and my bride tribe!

Gaye made us all feel very welcome right from the beginning. She was polite and gentle and I felt very comfortable around her.
She listened to what we all had to say and offered a wealth of knowledge and advice in ways we could alter my dress so that it was exactly how I had invisioned. Her 35 year experience in the industry and as a dressmaker defiantly reflects in her natural knack in customer service and dress fitting! The gowns in store were absolutely beautiful and very well looked after. The care that Miss Bella have for their dresses in keeping them immaculately clean is testament to the respect they have for all their brides who visit the boutique.

I could go on forever about the wonderful experience I had at Miss Bella but I think you should all experience it for yourself! Defiantly worth the trip.

Thankyou Miss Bella Bridal Tessa Blair

Dear Gaye and the team just a couple of photos from the Deb on Thursday night. The dress was just stunning on her and fitted perfectly. You are an amazing group of women and it is wonderful to see how much pleasure you get from the job you do. You give the girls great advice, fill them with confidence and put the parents at ease. Thank you so much.

I felt amazing and received so many comments about how beautiful I looked, on at least four occasions I was told that people wanted to get married again so they could borrow my Wedding dress. Thank you Miss Bella, the dress could not have been more perfect for me!

Walked down the aisle on May 2nd wearing the fantabulous dress and veil you made me fall in love with. Best day of my life so far. Here are some unedited early pics from the day to show you the dress in its glory.

Thank you miss Bella Bridal. So many beautiful comments on my daughters Deb dress. From family, friends and complete strangers saying it was one of the most suitable elegant Deb dress they’d ever seen. So appropriate for a debutante. As her grandfather said ” Grace Kelly elegance”. Thank you

Miss Bella Bridal. The dress we purchased for Kims Wedding was just gorgeous. The wedding went well considering Cyclone Ita the day before. Turned out perfect. A big thank you for the last minute alterations. You were all wonderful.

Dear Gaye & Miss Bella Staff. Well, I cannot believe that we are finally here, the day of Brittany’s debutanté ball… a true team effort. Your attention to detail, knowledge of product, support, communication, and always friendly manner has accumulated in such a wonderful and calm experience. I had faith that no matter how much fiddling around, alterations and adding bits and pieces, you would not allow my daughter to walk out of your store looking anything less than perfect… and she is… just perfect. It has been such a lovely experience, a big hug to you Gaye ~ you are so lovely that I could start the entire Deb journey all over again : ) with Many thanks and love Yvette & Brittany
