Customer Reviews

Can't recommend Charisma of Fawley enough! It's an Aladdin's cave of wonderful occasion wear! The service I received from Debbie was wonderful. I had been panicking about an outfit for my son's wedding, but thanks to Debbie's help, patience and amazing choice of outfits I came away very, very happy!

I recently bought my wedding dress at Charisma. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic. It was all very personal to me, unhurried and very pleasurable.

I went to charisma, originally on my own a few weeks ago, and tried on over 18 outfits, being advised what looked good, and what not so good. Nothing was too much trouble. And I went back to one dress 3 times convinced that was the one. So I picked out my top 3, which I took my daughter back to see a few weeks later. after trying them all on again we decided my perfect dress wasn't so perfect but one of my top 3 was, and the fascinator to compliment the outfit is exactly right, not to big not too small. The service is impeccable. I would urge anyone looking for that special occasion dress, to book an appointment.

Thank You Belinda. So glad we could help you find your perfect outfit. We get so much pleasure out of making our Mum's look and feel amazing

I had an appointment on Friday with Karen to choose an outfit for my son’s wedding. She was absolutely fantastic at guiding me through many styles of dresses with good humour and a lot of knowledge. I came away with a fabulous outfit and hat and can’t wait for the wedding!, My husband also thoroughly enjoyed the fashion show. I would highly recommend Charisma to anyone wanting an outfit for a wedding as they will receive an exclusively personal and highly professional service.

Thank you Angela . It was a real pleasure to be able to help you for your special day.

With only 2 weeks to go until my daughter’s wedding and I had been unable to find a suitable hat I was delighted with the service at charisma and the perfect hat purchased!! Thank you from one very fussy customer!!!

Thank you Karen for your help and kindness and the fun interaction in choosing my second outfit from you for Royal Ascot. For me Charisma is the ONLY place to go for a special occasion purchase. They have a knack of knowing what will suit you - even if you are not sure trust their judgement. They do not get it wrong.! I have a very happy hubby who said "wow' to the dress so its a yes from him. See you next time!

Thank you Chrissie. Hope the day was as good as you looked.

Having tried the online route unsuccessfully I quickly realised I needed some personal advice and expertise for my daughter's wedding that was looming fast! Debbie provided a brilliant stress-free experience and I came away with a fabulous outfit and fascinator. Debbie turned my negativity about finding something to fit completely around and I can't wait for the big day! Thank you so much Charisma!

Thank you Denise. It can be very stressful for mums as this is not how we dress everyday, which makes it special. Our aim is to relieve some of the stress and make the whole experience an enjoyable one so on the day you feel as amazing as you look.

I highly recommend the quality of the outfits, the service, the whole experience...🌻

I visited your store a year ago and purchased my wedding outfit, being Mother of the Groom. Debbie was very attentive to my needs and wants in an outfit. After many outfits and becoming a little despondent, finally an outfit which made me smile and feel wonderful. It then had a gorgeous hat to accessorise and beautiful silk shawl. I wore my outfit with confidence and pride on Saturday and all the comments about it were wonderful to hear. Charisma store and staff are worth a visit on a special occasion.

Thank you Sue for your lovely comment and so glad you had so many compliments on the day. It makes all our hard work worth while to know we have made you look and feel amazing on the day. Don't forget to send us some photos :)

Being one for hating dresses I was dreading the experience of having to find a mother of the groom outfit! What can I say Karen was amazing, patient, kind, honest and so helpful. Not only did she help pick out the outfits she helped me in to them and accessorised them to get the whole look. I left with the perfect dress and hat and am over the moon with the service received. Thanks Karen!

Hi Leanne Thank you. Our policy is always to be honest even if it doesn't result in a sale as we want our ladies looking and feeling fabulous. Nothing else will do.

Charisma of Fawley's response

My husband and I visited Charisma yesterday and we were both so pleased we made the short journey from Bournemouth - I hadn’t realised how difficult buying a Mother of the Bride dress would be, it really wasn’t the sort of thing I wanted to buy by mail order, I wanted to touch and feel and try things on! Well Charisma allowed me to do just that! Karen was amazing she helped me choose about 6 varied dresses and patiently helped me try each on, no rush, no pressure and gave me honest feedback on what suited me and more importantly what didn’t. It was a great customer focussed experience and I came away with a beautiful dress and hat - even my husband enjoyed himself and felt part of the experience - well done Charisma and grateful thanks to Karen

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you both and so glad you chose us to help you find your perfect outfit for such a special day. You looked amazing

I had the most wonderful appointment at Charisma today to choose a Mother of the Bride outfit. Debbie was incredibly helpful guiding me to find the perfect outfit. I left feeling wonderful with an incredibly glamorous outfit to wear to my daughter’s wedding in July. Thank you for your wonderful customer service, I would heartily recommend Charisma to anyone looking for an outfit for a wedding (yes, I did buy a hat too)

Thank you to the lovely ladies at Charisma for helping me find the perfect dress for my son's wedding. Their advice was invaluable and I came away with a dress I probably wouldn't have chosen myself, but which I love.

Thank you Carys. We are so glad you had such a pleasurable experience with us. We truly love our work and love making people look amazing

Charisma of Fawley's response

Debbie was most welcoming and made me feel like a very special customer with her total attention on me for the whole appointment. We discussed what I thought I wanted. I then choose a number of possibilities; it was then Debbie's turn having listened to my feedback and seen what suited me to find more possibilities from her enormous range. Having taken a step back and discussed with Debbie the pros and cons of various dresses I have ended up with a super special dress which is quite different from anything I have worn before, with a hat to match. I was dreading the whole process and expected to have to visit many establishments, spend a fortune and still not be really happy. Today, on my first trip looking for a MOG outfit I have come away with a stunning outfit without breaking the bank. Thank you so much Debbie, your guidance was brilliant.

Thank you Diana . It was a pleasure to meet you today and i am so glad i could help you find something so special for your daughter's wedding. Can't wait to see the photos

Debbie was welcoming as soon as I stepped in to her well stocked shop for my appointment. My son’s wedding is in early July. I found the whole experience relaxing and not at all stressful. Debbie made it very personal to me, and gave me the confidence that I was buying the right outfit that suited me best and not based on price. I Decided to buy two outfits one very special for my sons wedding also complimented with a purchase of a fascinator. The other for another family wedding. Debbie was able when asked to suggest ideas for retailers regarding shoes and handbag to finish off my outfits, which was very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend any of my friends to book an appointment and visit Charisma. Thank you Debbie for all your help.

Hi Julie. Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and i can't wait to see the photo's.

Wonderful collection and fantastic service! Finally, after more than one year of continuous search, my mother has finally found her outfit for my wedding. Now it feels like the wedding can finally go ahead, and I want to thank you very much for helping us yesterday. Pictures will follow soon :-)

ElizabethR-254 23/07/21 Flew in from Australia in June to find a MOB dress for my daughters wedding a week later. Fantastic range & service. Even though dress was too big they contacted their seamstress who altered it for me. Could not praise them more. Everyone commented on how beautiful my dress & hat were. Thank you so much!

LauraM-2951 I visited recently to find that perfect dress for my Nieces wedding next year! and bought not only a beautiful dress but a bag and hat to match. Debbie was very helpful and patient as I think I probably tried on most dresses in the shop and ended up with the first one I tried on! I would highly recommend Charisma you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Debbie. l

Liz Webb 16/07/21 I went to Charisma back May with an idea in my head of what my outfit of choice as Mother of the Bride was going to be like. Well, Debbie was just wonderful & guided me skilfully towards the most stunning dress I think I’ve ever seen! It blew the other outfits out of the water! Honestly, please visit Charisma xx The wedding is tomorrow (17th July) & a photograph will be sent as a thank you😊

Melonie Davies 08/07/21 Had a great overnight stay having experienced a spa day. Rooms are good and beds very comfy. Bar and restaurant are modern and the bar has lovely seating areas. All staff were very friendly and helpful and felt very covid safe.

Katherine Woodward 07/07/21 I visited Charisma with my Mum on Friday 2nd July, and walked away with my Mums dream dress for my wedding next April. Debbie was absolutely lovely and provides an outstanding service. We were the only people in the boutique so felt like we had a really special tailor made service, Debbie was fantastic at making my Mum feel confident and even found a pearl necklace so my Mum could get an idea of how the finished outfit would look. If you're in the Hampshire, Dorset, IOW area I would highly recommend Charisma, and even if you're not from those areas and travelling further afield, it's well worth the trip! Thanks so much Debbie, can't wait to show you pictures from the day.

KeriH-10 08/05/21 Visited Charisma yesterday to find a mother of the groom outfit and found the owner welcoming, extremely helpful and patient...I had a vision of what I wanted. Despite trying several dresses and not leaving with my ideal dress I want to highly recommend this boutique. She has some beautiful outfits and a great selection of hats in addition to great special occasion wear and cruise wear. Best of all the owner was not at all pushy. Many thanks.

DeborahT-143 06/05/21 Visited today for a mother of the bride outfit and was met by the lovely Debbie. Absolutely brilliant experience- I really had no particular idea what I wanted to wear but the guidance and advice I was given was wonderful. Found the perfect dress and hat for the big day. Great choice of outfits and styles available. Would highly recommend if you need a wedding outfit.

Google My Business Review Caroline Wright 22/06/20 With a friend's recommendation, we visited Charisma following the Covid-19 lock down. The shop had just opened by appointment only. I found the experience relaxing and friendly and tried quite a lot of outfits of varying design and colour. Was given time to ensure my decision was correct when narrowing my choices down to the favorites. There was also a great choice of hats to complete each outfit. Coming away with two, I would recommend a visit. The owner had unlimited patience and I'd certainly return again.

Richard Smith 14/01/20 Nothing short of brilliant! My wife and I went here thinking if she could find one mother of the bride outfit that suited her figure she would be fortunate. However the two ladies were so helpful and guided her in directions she would normally shy away from but with astounding results. At the end it was a difficult choice as after much deliberation she narrowed it down from 5 possibles to 2 and then the one that was perfect for her. The range is truly extensive and it is easy to see why they have clients from all over the country and even abroad. My wife has bought outfits here for other occasions over the years and she continues to be absolutely delighted. Can’t recommend highly enough My wife was amazed to find they even do more unique casual wear at very reasonable prices. A bit different to the usual high street clothes.

Karen was fantastic and immediately understood what I required and which style to persuade me to try on. Perfect customer service and attentive. Great range of outfits at very good prices too. Look nowhere else!

I managed to get a last minute appointment, due to a cancellation & Karen made my visit such a pleasure. Having only 5 weeks left til my sons wedding in France, which has been a bit of a rollercoaster in itself, Karen took the stress out of dress shopping. I literally did not know what I was looking for, but open to anything, which was a good job, as I was given so many different styles to try. Nothing was too much trouble & the whole experience was definitely about ME Before you choose your outfit, I absolutely recommend you book an appointment at Charisma of Fawley, you won’t be disappointed & you won’t be pressured either Well done Ladies, you have got it so right Thank you x

I visited Charisma at the end of May with an idea in my head of the outfit I thought I wanted (as you do!) for my daughter’s wedding in July. Debbie was just amazing & picked out a couple of outfits in the style I had described ( probably quietly knowing they weren’t quite ‘ right’ for me! Sure enough they were lovely but… Anyway as the mother of the groom & I were having another look, Debbie held up the most stunning dress I think I have ever seen! It was designed by Lizabella & it just blew the other dresses out of the water! Debbie got fascinators to try with it & we settled upon one to complement the dress. I cannot thank Debbie enough for her thought & professionalism, her eye for style & cut to suit the individual. The wedding was a great success & I am spreading the word about Charisma! Thank you so much!

Karen, thank you so much for all your time and patience as I was beginning to think that I wouldn't find an outfit I liked. Then feeling a little despondent I tried on the final dress and voila, that was the one! It's perfect for me and I love it! You even found me a beautiful, matching fascinator even though I had said that I didn't want to wear a hat or anything on my head. What a clever lady you are - thanks again!

Hi Joanne I t was lovely to meet you and your husband the other day. It was a hard choice as you looked so amazing in many of them . However we finally narrowed it down and it was so perfect for you. You really are going to look fabulous on the day. Best Wishes Debbie

Searching for MOB outfit I visited Charisma on Friday 13 March with my daughter. I wasn't expecting to find anything to suit - after numerous trials we found the perfect outfit (I don't do flowery was my initial reaction :-) until I finally tried on the outfit suggested. Thank you Debbie for all your help.

Thank you Maria, you looked absolutely stunning . Even if it was flowery :-). It just goes to show that you have to be willing to try new things and sometimes come out of your comfort zone to find "The One".

Just like to say a huge thank you to the lady's at Charisma. Visited today for a dress for my sister to wear to renew her vows. Not only did we buy this but came out with a Mother of the Bride outfit for me and a wedding outfit for my sister. The lady's make you feel so at ease without any pressure. The selection of outfits is excellent. Would recomend Charisma without hesitation.

Always a pleasure to help such lovely ladies

My mum and I went to Charisma today looking for her mother of the bride outfit. My mum had already had several very disappointing experiences elsewhere and was really feeling disheartened about finding the perfect dress. What a contrast this wonderful place was! The lovely ladies at Charisma were so friendly, helpful, and really thoughtful in helping us chose from the wide range of collections they stock. The dresses were absolutely stunning and it was hard to chose which one was the best! We had an absolutely lovely time choosing the perfect outfit and hat for my mum today - thank you so much!

Hi Becky I'm so glad we could help your Mother find something that was just perfect for her. We pride ourselves on our customer care and attention to detail to make every lady look and feel amazing on the day

Having used Charisma in the past I knew the chances were that I wouldn’t be disappointed and so when I wanted a Mother of the Bride outfit, this was my first port of call. I wanted an outfit that suited my figure and thought my choice would be somewhat limited to say the least. How wrong I was. The two ladies were so knowledgable and helpful they eventually helped me narrow my possibles down to a choice of two. Never dreamt I would have had so much difficulty but what a pleasure it was and I was totally delighted with my final choice. The range was so extensive it would have easily been mind blowing but the expertise of the ladies made it so easy to narrow it down. I left with a truly wonderful outfit that suited me to a tee and was totally satisfied. I can’t recommend Charisma highly enough

Hi Jackie Thank you so much for your kind words. We really do get so much pleasure in helping our ladies find that 'Special One'. You really did look amazing

Thank you so much for your help. We came to Charisma of Fawley to find a Mother of The Bride outfit for my Mum on 2nd November for my wedding in April. You had a great choice of colours and styles and she picked a selection to try on, once narrowed down to a couple of favourites, she could try on a hat or hatinator to go with it. She came away with a complete outfit and was really pleased. A relaxed atmosphere and great staff made this a very enjoyable experience. Thank you!

Thank you for the lovely review. We look forward to seeing a photo of you in your outfit on the big day.

Absolutely fantastic! I can’t rate the lovely ladies at Charisma highly enough. I visited a week ago looking for a Mother of the Groom outfit and couldn’t have been made more welcome despite not having an appointment. I had a vague idea of what I thought I wanted but listening to their friendly, kind advice realised I would have to up my game and came away with a stunning dress and jacket in a colour I probably would never have considered but is so the right choice. They are clearly very experienced, honest, never patronising and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for making it such a pleasurable experience. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your five star review

I was very concerned about choosing an outfit for my daughter’s wedding but you turned my visit last week into a very happy and successful shopping experience. Your kind understanding and practical approach helped me to see possibilities, and your obvious experience and excellent advice gave me confidence in making choices for this very special occasion. I am delighted with my outfit. Thank you for all you did for me.

Hi Sue I'm so glad you had such a wonderful experience in our shop. We get so much pleasure out of helping our ladies . It's not a job it's a passion:-)

This is the third time I have bought a wedding outfit from Charisma. Each time I tried other places first and was disappointed. After the first time I should have learnt my lesson. I knew that Charisma would have the best choice. The staff are fantastic. They are helpful and honest - the perfect combination. They won’t sell you something that doesn’t look good. There is no pressure to buy and even though I didn’t make an appointment I was given 100% attention. On all three visits I have come away with the perfect outfit and helpful advice on accessories. Pricing is fair too - another bonus.

Thank you for your four star review

Thank you all for a lovely experience at Charisma yesterday. We were welcomed, assisted and made to feel very special whilst choosing a beautiful, mother-of-the-bride dress. You provide a great service.

Charisma has such a wide range of special occasion outfits, which I initially thought might be a bit traditional for my taste. I was so wrong! The staff were knowledgeable and helpful, happy to guide and advise without being pushy. I tried on three beautiful dresses for my son’s wedding and found it hard to pick one. The lady serving me was able to show how sensational one of the dresses could look with a small alteration and matching hat and I was sold! I returned 6 weeks before the wedding for alterations by an amazing seamstress, who made the dress fit beautifully for a very reasonable price. Overall a fabulous shopping experience and one I would thoroughly recommend. It’s not cheap, but for a special occasion it will make you feel and look a million dollars!

Thankyou for your review.

What a truly wonderful buying experience. The staff were so caring and professional to my needs. As mother of the groom I’m going to feel so confident and a million dollars in my outfit. Thank you ladies so much.

Visited Charisma of Fawley after being in the area and seeing the reviews on the internet. What a great find and although I had not planned on trying any outfits on I ended up trying on 9/10 outfits with the guidance of Karen and walked out with a beautiful dress, shawl and hatinator for my nephews wedding in August. I am so pleased with my outfit and have to say that Karen made the whole experience a joy. I will definitely return for future special occasion outfits and have already recommended Charisma to family and friends

I visited Charisma today after a long search for a mother of the groom outfit. It was a great experience, the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. I am now sorted thanks to you guys and I can now concentrate on finalising the wedding arrangements.

I visited couple of weeks ago on recommendation of a friend and was guided knowledgeably --and very patiently-- to find a lovely outfit for my daughter's wedding in May. I was offered lots of choice, keeping within the budget I requested at the beginning of the appointment. Alterations have been done quickly to accommodate my tight timetable . I'm really looking forward to wearing my outfit on the day. Many thanks .

Visited Charisma of Fawley today on the strength of the outstanding reviews. Having made an advance appointment Julie provided superb customer service in a professional, warm and friendly manner. At no time did I feel under any pressure and was delighted to leave with a lovely outfit and hat for my son's wedding in September. Thank you again Julie for your professional assistance throughout.

Thank you for the lovely review Valerie. It was a pleasure to help you choose your special outfit and you looked lovely in it. I look forward to seeing you again when you come for your fitting. Julie

What a wonderful experience we had at Charisma yesterday. We flew over from Jersey for the day and we were greeted with a very warm welcome from Debbie. She made my mother feel super by really taking the time out to find out what she was looking for, for my wedding. She was a bit nervous but Debbie soon put the nerves to bed and we got on with the job in hand. Debbie truly was a delight to deal with throughout the whole experience, and my mother came away with the most beautiful outfit and hat. My sister also managed to pick something up too - so it was a very worthwhile v visit. I would recommend Charisma highly for their experience, amazing customer service and beautiful outfits - fit for that special day. Thanks once again so so much.....we couldn't have done it without you.

Thank you for your lovely review. We were honoured that you flew all the way from Jersey to see us. You looked amazing in your outfit. Debbie

Utterly delighted, utterly thrilled with outfit comprising stunning dress and hat which I bought today for summer wedding. Did not want to take them off! Debbie & Julie's customer service, welcome and guidance made it an absolute joy! Very, very happy mother of a groom!

Charisma is a lovely shop. They have a really comprehensive range of outfits especially for those hugely important landmark occasions. I bought my ‘Mother of the Bride’ dress from here. The Staff were so helpful but never pushy and made me feel very comfortable. There was no problem to go back on more than one occasion before I made my final decision.

wide range of stock, most approachable and genuine customer advisors. Key point is that the client is listened to and not overriden and advice is helpful and constructive - & paitent.

A great shopping experience! Fun and really helpful.
