When should I start looking for a wedding dress?

You should start looking for your wedding dress as soon as you get engaged. Sometimes you find the right one quickly, but sometimes it can take a little bit longer. Either way, you may need to order the dress in, which can take some time, and then on top of that there are fittings and adjustments.

Knowing you have the dress sorted will give you peace of mind. And knowing the cost can also help with overall planning and budgeting.

How far in advance do I need to buy my gown?

Standard make time for our special order gowns is about 3 – 5 months, depending on the designer. We recommend placing your order at least 7 months out from your wedding. This creates a comfortable timeline and allows time for alterations, where we customize the fit of a gown to best complement your silhouette.

Do I have to make an appointment?

We recommend making an appointment to ensure you receive the best possible shopping experience. With an appointment, you won’t have to wait, you will get the attention of our first class staff and their expert advice. Consultations are approximately 1 hour and there is no charge. There is also no charge for trying on gowns in our store.

What size wedding dresses do you have to try on?

We have a great selection of wedding dresses to try on, from size 4 up to size 30, and there is NO CHARGE TO TRY ON.

What about our brides who may be expecting? We have several styles that are suitable for the pregnant bride. Many gowns can also be altered to accommodate a ‘bump’.

Our bridal collection has ‘price points’ to suit a variety of wedding budgets. Prices start at $550 and go up to $3000.

But please don’t leave things to the last minute. Come in and ‘have a play’ to see what is the best style for you.

How long does it take for my wedding dress to arrive, once ordered?

Once you have decided on your dress and confirmed the order, you should expect 12-20 weeks for delivery. Tailoring times vary for each designer, and staff will let you know what to expect during the ordering process. Some designers have the option for ‘rush orders’, but be aware that this does incur an additional charge.

What price range are your wedding dresses?

Wedding dress prices can vary a great deal. Things like the style of the dress, fabric grade and method of construction all have an impact. We are constantly working to provide beautiful bridal collections to suit a variety of wedding budgets.

As a general rule, our wedding dresses range in price from $550 – $3500.

Can you organise tailoring or hemming of my wedding dress?

We have professional seamstresses who are available by appointment. They will work with you to customize your wedding dress for your big day. From a simple raising of a hem through to more complex work like replacing a zipper with a lace-up panel.

Alterations are carried out 3-6 weeks before your wedding day and usually take about 1-2 weeks to be completed. When attending your fitting, be sure to bring along the shoes and under-garments you plan to wear on your special day.

Costs for alterations are additional to the cost of the gown and can vary depending on the work required. An estimate will be provided during your consultation with our seamstress.
