Our goal is to make the process of finding your perfect dress as stress free as we can. We offer complimentary second visits so you are always welcome to bring back your guests to reveal the one.
WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE OF YOUR GOWNS?
Our gowns range from $3000 – $12,000. Majority of our gowns are around the $5000 mark. Through the booking process we will ask what sort of budget you would like to stick to. While we won’t limit your choices, we understand wedding budgets are hard so we will ensure we have a great selection and recommendations for you to try.
WHEN SHOULD I START LOOKING FOR MY GOWN AND HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BE MADE?
We suggest starting your shopping experience 9-12 months out from your wedding day. Depending on which designer you move forward with, our gowns take between 6-10 months to be made and allow time for alterations. We need your gown to arrive no less than 8-12 weeks out from your wedding day.
Anything less that 6 months may be classed as a rush order and will incur a rush order fee. Don’t panic if you are under this time frame. We are happy to work with you and the designers to ensure we can still get your gown completed for your wedding day. However short time frames limit fabric supply’s therefore restricting options.
WHAT SAMPLE SIZES DO YOU CARRY
Our designers vary in size and follow their own size chart. We have a collection of sample sizes to try in 8’s 10’s and 12’s and some plus sizes. We have ways of fitting all shapes and sizes in our gowns to ensure you enjoy the experience of finding your gown.
WHAT IF THERE IS A GOWN THAT I LIKE FROM A DESIGNER THAT YOU CARRY, BUT YOU DON’T CARRY THAT PARTICULAR SAMPLE?
We do our best to carry a wide selection of gowns from each designer. We may sometimes miss a particular sample you have your eye on. We like to be prepared for your visit so via our booking process through email@example.com we will ask you list any gowns you have your eye on and we will do our best to have your preferred selection in store for your visit.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM GOWNS?
Typically, not. We do however work closely with our designers and depending on the style and designer we are able to offer personalised customisations to our gowns.
HOW IS MY DRESS MADE IN REGARD TO SIZING?
All our designer gowns are made to order. This means your gown is submitted into production and starts getting made for you upon paying your deposit. It’s important to remember your gown will be made to your closest standard size (sizes 2-18 ) based on measurements taken in store. Your gown is not made to your exact measurements as this is referred to as more of a custom process
To achieve and ensure the perfect fit every bride will need to visit a seamstress. We have recommended professionals throughout Australia we work with closely with and will refer you to upon purchasing your gown. Alterations are an important and easy process.
WHAT IS A TRUNK SHOW?
A Trunk show is when a designer will send us a full collection of styles, often when new collections are released for a limited period of time – usually one weekend. This is a opportunity for you to visit and try on additional styles. Special pricings are offered for the event. Our upcoming trunk show details are always displayed on the website.
