I found this amazing shop by accident and purchased a stunning hat and dress for my daughters wedding next May. The ladies were so helpful and knowledgeable. I had the perfect outfit in 10 minutes unbelievably.

Thank you Deborah for such a fun experience in your shop today. Such utterly fabulous stock it was hard to choose! I am so delighted with my purchases and look forward to shopping with you again very soon.

Kind regards


I would like to say a massive thank you to Sharon and Deborah for helping me choose an outfit for my daughter’s wedding.  Sharon’s help was second to none. It’s is the most important outfit you are likely to ever purchase yet never once did I feel pressured to purchase anything. I tried 5 dresses on and Sharon was extremely honest even in some of the more expensive dresses that they did not suit me. With her expert eye she selected a dress for me and the moment I put it on I knew it was the one.  I went elsewhere to purchase hat shoes and bag but had no luck. So I went back to Gladrags where everything matched perfectly. I even purchased some jewellery accessories to compliment my outfit. I truly had a Pretty Woman Film experience in this shop.  I had endless comments at the Wedding from ladies and men about my outfit. Do not hesitate to visit Deborah and Sharon in this little gem of a store. I only wished I worked there myself its a lovely store. My sincerest thanks to you both again.

Thank you to the two lovely ladies who looked after me today (sorry didn’t get their names!) Found the shop online having searched for a special frock shop in Essex! Upon approaching the shop it looked great and spotted a stunning red dress in the window and commented to my sister in law  “that’s stunning but I’m not a red person”.  Went in and felt very comfortable on arriving! discussed what I wanted…and what I didn’t! selected several to try and at no time felt any pressure or being rushed. Ended up with something very different from what I intended for my only daughters wedding but it felt so stylish and  just perfect!!!! I’m over the moon with my dress and stunning hat that is beautiful and mostly I feel great in them!!! Would highly recommend this great team who were busy but attentive and caring to all their clients ..indeed we all commented on each others choices too! what a great experience of dress shopping at its best. Thanks ladies now cant wait for October and my little ladies wedding day!! Yvonne Jones. xxx ps I bought that beautiful red dress I saw in the window!!!!!!

Was invited to a wedding at very short notice, needed a fabulous outfit complete with hat, shoes, bag and no time to shop around, Deborah and her team Thank you ladies for all your help with my outfit for my daughter Laura’s wedding. It all went perfectly and I felt a million dollars in my John Charles outfit and Sarah Crozier hat. It felt so comfortable and so many people commented on how lovely I looked – worth every penny it cost! Will send photos for your wall :) see you soon for next daughter’s wedding in July 2018.

After looking at the new collections online I found the perfect dress for my sons wedding.  I then discovered after emailing the designers that there wasn’t a stockist within a 300 mile radius of my home!  Not to be deterred I started to ring the retailers to ask if a sale or return would be considered.  After a few disappointing responses I spoke to Sharon who said she was sure they could help and that she would contact me when the dress was in stock.  About five weeks later she rang to say the dress had arrived, took my measurements  and posted the dress. It arrived the next day! Just perfect!  One of the best examples of customer service I have had so well done Sharon and thanks to Deborah for allowing it to happen. Oh! and also very competitively priced!

Went to Gladrags to buy outfit for daughter’s wedding – met Sharon who helped enormously and had lots of patience with me. Later when I found the ‘one’, Deborah with her expertise knew just how to fit the dress and jacket perfectly. Subsequently went back and bought the hat which was just amazing and the most comfortable of shoes – I danced all evening in them. Sharon even delivered and collected my outfit from the dressmaker yet again as I had lost weight and it needed to be altered once more just in time for the wedding. I had so many compliments on the day. Would highly recommend Gladrags. Thank you ladies.

Needed a little black dress for a last minute invitation and Sharon with all her patience found the perfect answer. Thank you so much Glad Rags.

Purchased my wedding outfit bought elsewhere, needed the accessories, found fabulous array of hats at Glad Rags and with help of Deborah who with her expertise found me a divine hat, and also managed to persuade me to purchase the most comfortable shoes with matching clutch bag. I must say the shop and service I received was exemplary such a shame I never knew about this little jewel before. I will be back as their stock of Winter clothes that had just arrived looked fabulous.
Jackie Ogden, Brentwood
I attend at least 5 black tie dinners a year. I always buy my long gowns from Deborah as she is honest (only lets me buy dresses to suit me) and tailors them to fit me perfectly. I always feel a million dollars and get many compliments on my beautiful dresses.

Had been recommended to visit Deborah Webb in the village of Ingatestone by a friend with a view to purchasing a outfit for my daughter’s wedding. Was greeted by Deborah herself who immediately put me at ease and quickly established what I was looking for, her expertise in choosing some outfits for me to try, and our final choice upon her personal recommendation proved to be perfect for this important day.

Was invited to a wedding at very short notice, needed a fabulous outfit complete with hat, shoes, bag and no time to shop around, Deborah and her team rallied round a fitted me out perfectly, including alterations as I am so short and everything is always too long!!! Massive thank you.

 Visited glad rags late on a Saturday and was greeted by Sharon and Jane. I felt so comfortable and made to feel special. Ended up leaving the shop at 730pm after buying an outfit and hat for my daughters wedding. I went back for a fitting and Deborah found other alterations she felt necessary. Deborah and the staff want you to leave the shop happy that your outfit is a perfect fit. Great experience and would so recommend glad rags of ingrate stone.

Such a lovely experience, my mum needed a mother of bride outfit at short notice due to being let down at a different shop. Gladrags staff could not have been more polite and helpful. Would recommend this shop to anyone who needs a glam dress or mother of bride outfit/wedding outfit :) thank you.
