Thank you so much for creating such a fabulous dress for my wedding and particularly for your patience in perfecting the bodice! I felt absolutely wonderful in it which I hope was reflected outwardly!
Everyone loved my dress and jacket, including my husband. You made me feel wonderful.
I hope you are well. Just a short note to say thank you so much for my beautiful dress – the dust has finally settled and I can now reflect on the day and appreciate every last detail. Everyone commented on my dress and absolutely loved it – as did I. It suited me perfectly and I am absolutely trilled that we went with that style. I have some photos to send through to you and hopefully you can use them for your folio – as it really came up beautifully in the pictures!
Just a little note to say thank you for the wonderful job you did in making my wedding dress. Your personalised service and attention to detail was remarkable. These were qualities I was unable to find in the larger bridal boutiques. Thank you also for your after sales service. Your interest and over the phone advice on pressing my dress after the trip home was greatly appreciated. You will come highly recommended to all my friends and colleagues.
I wanted to write to express my sincere thanks for the unbelievable work you did making my bridal gown, Mum’s dress and the bridesmaid dresses. They were all incredibly beautiful. The gowns turned out exactly ho we had discussed and yet I felt completely comfortable leaving the finer details to you, as I knew your suggestions would be perfect. Once again thank you.
Just a quick note to say thank you. You promised me that the dress you’d make for me would look just as good as the picture, and you were right. You’ve done a fantastic job. I really appreciated your honesty and personalised service.
Just a brief note but with a big “thank you” for looking after myself and the girls so well with our dress designs. Your patience and sense of humour was appreciated by all of us, as well as your advice and helpfulness. I was so very happy with how everything looked on the day – it was all I could have hoped for. Thank you again, I am sure we we’ll see each other again soon.
Nov 2012 Susan is a brilliant dressmaker. She was very patient in listening to my ideas and flipping through my many magazine clippings. She did not sway from the design that I had asked for, but also guided my ideas to ensure the style of the dress was the most flattering for my body type. She is a perfectionist in her work and her attention to detail is admirable. All of my guests wanted to know where I had found such a beautiful wedding dress; commenting it looked like something off a runway in Paris.
Jan 2013 I received so many compliments on the dress too; it was perfect – thank you. the style worked so beautifully with the entire theme of the wedding. Absolutely loved it! Somehow (I am not sure how), you understood what I wanted and you did a magnificent job with the dress!
July 2013 Thank you so much for creating my gorgeous wedding dress. Thank you for guiding me through the process; your patience when I was unsure of that I wanted, your honest advice, including what suited me, was all very much appreciated! My dress was beyond beautiful to me. Thank you for you careful attention to detail – those details made it so special and my dress fit like a glove, fell perfectly and moved perfectly at every angle. I was amazed. I couldn’t wait for my groom to see me, and I received so many compliment on the day.
Sept 2013 Just wanted to say thank you again for the magnificent job you did on making my wedding dress. It really was absolutely perfect, exactly as I had imagined it. I am so thankful for all of the hard work and effort you put in to making the dress just right and it showed. I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments I have had on my dress; I have passed on your name to a few girls as well. I took the dress in to be dry cleaned at Leon’s, as you recommended, and they were so excited to be able to look after one of your creations! if only I could find a reason to wear it over and over again…
Oct 2013 Let me thank you once again for a wonderful dress. I felt 100% princess in it, and received heaps of compliments from the guests!
Oct 2013 Thank you so much for making my dress – it was absolutely perfect and I had so many compliments on it! I will definitely recommend you to any my friends – you were amazing to work with.[quote/]
[quote author= "Vanessa B"] Jan 2014 I had an idea about ‘The Dress’ I wanted to wear on my wedding day. I knew that I wanted ‘The Dress’ to fit me and not the other way around. I decided I wanted someone to make it for me. I live 745Km west of the city and communication was paramount. Susan was always on the ball! When I met with Susan for the first time she had an idea. On paper it was beautiful. As the weeks and months passed ‘The Dress’ lifted of the paper and became more and more a reality. When the day finally came to collect ‘The Dress’ and have my last fitting, reality finally set in. The moment when I took ‘The Dress’ from Susan’s creative hands, I broke into tears. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever owned, made by a very imaginative and artistic person. I took it home in the carry-on luggage compartment in the plane, carefully ensuring no-one on the flight put anything on it. As all brides do, I received so many beautiful and generous compliments on ‘The Dress’. The one conversation about ‘The Dress’ which stands out the most is one with an Aunt. She questioned where ‘The Dress’ had come from and where did I see it. My response was simple – I didn’t. Susan Ogg did. Susan you truly are a magnificent dress maker, your sense of humour and quick wit make you such a pleasure to work with and you most certainly do see ‘The Dress’. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day.
Sept 2014 Thank you so much for creating my beautiful wedding dress! Your commitment to perfection, dedication and hard work was amazing and I really appreciated the personalised service that you delivered – nothing was too difficult for you, even if we did have a few more fittings than expected! I received so many compliments on my “unique” dress, which is a credit to you!
Feb 2014 When I couldn’t find a wedding dress I loved in any of the shops I went to, I decided to look into having it made. Searching on google, I found Susan’s website and went to her just to have a chat. I felt like she immediately understood what I wanted and it wasn’t awkward talking about price points at all – in the end, Susan was even able to make my dress for less than I had planned. It was very easy working with her. She was flexible with her appointments and always available via email and phone to discuss any last minute freak outs. She let me know what would look good on my body and talked me out of having a puffy dress, saying I wouldn’t like it – and she was 100% right. On the day (and even now still!) everyone commented on how perfect the dress was. It felt very comfortable, and even more so, I really enjoyed the whole process of seeing the dress come to life. I would definitely recommend Susan to every woman getting married.
Nov 2014 Thank you so much for making me the most amazing wedding dress. I absolutely loved it, and received so many compliments on how beautiful it was. I would never have found a dress in a bridal store I liked, so it was brilliant finding someone who I 100% trusted to make my dream dress. Thank you also for your honesty throughout the process – for always giving your expert opinion. I am glad you guided the process so well, and led me away from the red waistband. It was a pleasure working with you and I really enjoyed the weekly excitement of seeing the progress and trying my dress on![/author]
[author=”Jenny I”] April 2015 I really can’t thank you enough! I love my dress and I felt just beautiful on the day. It was perfect for me and your attention to detail just made it such a joy to wear. From the moment I walked into your studio I felt at ease, and thankful that I’d found you. You really got me straight away! I loved that even though we had essentially organised the design and fabric early, we didn’t start the fittings until close to the day. It was all the more magical that the dress was still fresh and exciting on the day! I also loved that my dress is silk and obviously made with love![/author]
[author=”Haylee”] September 2015 It’s hard to explain in words how thankful I am to you Susan for what you created for me. I was so worried about finding the perfect dress that I decided early on the best thing to do was to get something made. It was by far the best decision I ever made. Susan, you made the process so interesting, so hands on and so calming – I felt so at ease with you throughout our time making my dream dress.You really taught me so much more about myself and my body shape than any stylist or dressmaker could – you were just amazing! My dress ended up being everything I wanted and more! I spent my wedding day feeling beautiful, sexy but most of all, feeling like myself. I will continue to recommend you to anyone and everyone, but especially to the bride who is a little different, like myself. I wanted something that worked in a tropical climate, was on trend, was tight in some places and loose in others, was flexible enough to dance, but strong enough to look bridal and classy; and made me feel like the best version of myself! Although this sounds like the impossible – you achieved it! There is no way I would have found this by buying something ‘off the rack’. THANK YOU! Your attention to detail was exceptional – and you were so well priced; I think you’re honestly Brisbane’s best kept secret when it comes to dressmaking! You deserve a world of praise – I will look back upon my wedding day and the lead up to it, and feel so pleased and blessed that I found the fabulous Susan Ogg! Best wishes for the future, I’ll be finding another excuse to come back to you![/author]
[author=”Tegan”] Oct 2015 As a Bride living interstate form family and friends, Susan Ogg was amazing. Susan became more than my dress maker over our 6 month relationship. Susan was a friend, a listener and a great advice giver. AS an indecisive person, Susan’s knowledge of fabric, styles which would suit my shape was excellent and appreciated. My dress was nothing but stunning, and I truly felt beautiful in my dress. I cannot recommend Susan and her skills more highly. It was a pleasure working with her.[/author]
[author=”Kimberley”] June 2016 Just a little card to say thank you for all the beautiful work you’ve put into my wedding dress. It’s been a pleasure working on this special gown with you, and thank you for all your support and guidance.[/author]
[author=”Ruth”] July 2016 Thank you so much for all the work you have put into my amazing dress! Your creativity and attention to detail has always been above and beyond – you’re right you do have a new admirer! I truly love my dress; Thank you for walking through the whole process with mum and me![/author]
[author=”Clare”] December 2016 Thank you again so much for creating such a stunning wedding dress for me! It as absolutely perfect – everyone loved it (including Aaron of course!!) You helped pull off one of the most fun parts of my “bridal experience”, and I’m so very grateful for all your expertise and advice (professional and personal!) If only I could have another wedding….![/author]
[author=”Jemima”] Jan 2018 Susan was the absolute best dressmaker for me. As someone who struggled with the attention and fuss that came with being a ‘bride’, and searching through endless racks of dresses that didn’t strike my fancy, she metaphorically held my hand, and created a dress that made me feel not only beautiful, but totally comfortable on our wedding day. Susan is a problem solver – I am truly grateful for the hours she put in to testing out my dress ideas, sourcing the most exquisite fabrics, and making sure that all of the details were absolutely perfect. Thank you Susan! [/author]
[author=”Lauren”} March 2018 Thank you so very much for creating my absolutely stunning dress; you made the entire process a joy.From our very first meeting when I had no idea what I wanted or what I was looking for, the only thing I was certain of was that I wanted you to make it. Your straightforward approach was exactly what I needed to pull all the ideas out of my head and onto paper. There was not a moment where I didn’t feel 100% confident in your expertise and judgement, and I could not have been happier with the result.[/author]
[author=”Sarah B”] August 2018 Susan is truly a master at her craft. I didn’t give her much to go on when we first met but with her knowledge and expertise she recommended what she thought would suit my body type and what would be the most flattering whilst looking stylish. My dress was of a high quality and I loved it – perfect for a beach wedding. Susan was fantastic to deal with and very organised and thorough in her approach – would very much recommend her.[/author]
[author=”Lauren”] December 2018 Now that the dust has settled, I am writing to thank you from the bottom of my heart for my breathtakingly beautiful wedding dress. It was more perfect than I ever could have dreamed, and I’ve truly never felt so pretty in my entire life. I will forever cherish how confident I felt on that day. I am so incredibly grateful for your patience, advice and expertise throughout the whole process and for always giving me a safe and comfortable place to vent during such a stressful time! I loved coming to every single appointment as I always felt like I was just catching up with a girlfriend for a gossip!! [/author]
