I had a really great experience at Paperswan Bride. Having the whole shop to yourself makes things so much easier, Jennifer gives you her full attention, really listens and is lovely to deal with, with her help I found a dress that really suited me and I would never have tried otherwise.
The dresses are beautiful and great quality, there is amazing variety for a small shop.

I had such a lovely experience finding my wedding dress! I just popped in….......passing by with my then six month old and fortunately for me Jennifer had a free spot when I did! I had been to every store in town…......Paperswan Bride is by far the best wedding dress boutique in Wellington in every single way.
The store itself is really lovely and has a sense of calm, Jennifer quickly worked out the kind of style I preferred and her suggestions were bang on. She truly has a wonderful selection of beautiful dresses to suit everyone.
I had left my dress shopping to the very last minute but Jen was wonderful and when I found the one she kicked into gear with ordering and keeping me up to date on dress delivery and ordering extra lace. She was wonderful with all the seamstress fittings especially advising on my dress straps that I was having added. Thanks Jen, you truly made finding my perfect dress a wonderful experience. I absolutely recommend PaperSwan Bride.

I had the most amazing time at Paperswan Bride. I had been there before as a bridesmaid and knew that when my time came I would be going there to get my dress. Jennifer was amazing and sweet and put up with me and my crazy bridesmaids. I was lucky enough that Paperswan had a trunk show of a Melbourne designer that I was in love with and I found my perfect dress.
The shop is so lovely and you really get the chance to feel special and like a bride. I am not a girly girl but Jennifer made me feel beautiful. If you are looking for a shop to find your dream dress this is the one.
The range is amazing there is something for everyone whether you want the full dress or lace, or something a little more Boho this is the place to be, I am telling all my friends about it. I was able to try all the different styles to find the one that worked for me.
PAPERSWAN BRIDE IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!

Paperswan provides excellent service and is a gorgeous store. No matter how relaxed you are, shopping for a gown can turn into be quite an overwhelming experience. Its easy to feel pressured with so many dresses and so many decisions to make about what might look good. Jennifer is a real professional, makes you feel at ease and with many years of experience has a wealth of knowledge on different styles and what looks good on different body types. Compared with other places, I loved almost all of the gowns - they’re well laid out and there aren’t hundreds to go through.

Be aware that you really do have to book an appointment.
I thought I might take my chances and visit one morning even though I couldn’t get through on the phone. When we arrived we were told that the shop was too busy. This would have been OK if the assistant had not treated us quite so rudely and mentioned that she had heard the phone ring but chosen not to answer it.

Thank you for your review and I am so sorry you felt I was rude to you. Since we are only a small boutique unfortunately we do not allow casual browsing if we already have an appointment in the shop. The service we offer is one to one private appointments, which allows us to give the bride our complete focus. Sometimes this also means that on a busy Saturday I am unable to answer the phone. We hope this doesn’t cause too much of an inconvenience to other customers and always encourage people to call ahead if they wish to browse or book an appointment.
Paperswan Bride is a truly gorgeous store with the most beautiful selection of dresses and lovely, relaxed service. I had a wonderful experience finding my dream dress here, and would highly recommend this boutique to all brides. If you’re not from the area and have to make a special trip to visit Jennifer and her amazing dresses, rest assured that you won’t be disappointed.
