Finding your DREAM DRESS

WHEN SHOULD YOU START?

12-14 months before your wedding day.

  • First stop is to do our “Dream Dress Quiz”. It really helps you define your wedding vibe and importantly which store to visit.(we have two)
  • You can easily book in advance on our website as we have a super easy online booking system that operates 24-7. Oh yes we never sleep!
  • We will call you ahead of your appointment to chat about your three favourite dresses and have them ready and waiting for you.
  • No need to be nervous and come prepared to find your dress, most girls buy one of the first 3 or 4 they try !!
  • No need to bring shoes, we have that covered, but do try to wear nude undies and keep your fake tan for another day. 
  • We ask that you bring no more than three guests, we are not a wedding factory and so our space is limited. 

We’ll also help you with dress service options offered by us and our designers, you can read more below.

It’s STYLING TIME

6 MONTHS BEFORE

So you’ve found your dress. What happens now?

If you would like our help in styling then just ask us. If you didn’t choose your veil when you bought your dress you can come back and decide to sparkle or not to sparkle, to be a pearly princess or a golden goddess.

We have hair vines, pearls, gold hair combs and every veil under the sun, all our veils are made to order so we can literally have made what ever you are loving.

We are only able to offer styling appointments during the week.

P.S Check out our little black book of wedding suppliers below.

Our FITTING SERVICES

8-10 WEEKS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING.

  • Fitting your wedding dress is a vital part of the service we offer, with 16 years experience we have a superb team of technically brilliant couture fitters that work with us, know our dresses and care for our brides.
  • You  always have two fittings in your dress and a final collection appointment.
  • Remember this is your actual dress, so try to keep your makeup to a minimum.
  • We offer two types of fittings services. 
  • All our Couture, Made to Measure and calico services are fitted in house by our expert couture level fitters. These are performed in the store where you purchased your dress.
  • All of our other Dresses are offered a fitting service with the same couture level fitters at their studios. This service is much more flexible and offered by location, is available over weekends and variety of days and late nights.
  • We will advise you which fitting service is  offered when you buy your dress.
  • PS. Timelines for made-to-measure and calico service are different to standard dress sizes, you will be advised individually about your dress.

Time to collect your DRESS

IT’S COLLECTION DAY

  • If you are collecting your dress with us to take to your fitter we will let you know when your dress arrives so you can book on line.
  • You will come in for your 45 minute collection and final styling check before leaving with your dress to take to your expert fitter.
  • If you have a Couture/ Made to measure gown we will advise you on your collection date after your fittings.
  • For both services and at the end of your fittings hours are spent preparing your dress and accessories until they are utterly pristine, lovingly tissue wrapped and protected in a special Wedding dress bag.

WHO WILL DRESS YOU?

  • Before you collect your dress Mum or your Bridesmaid will be shown how to get you into your dress. It’s certainly not something you can do yourself.
