Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes, we do prefer our brides to make an appointment as we do book out a few weeks in advance, especially on a Saturday. You are however welcome to come in store and view the collection at anytime and we are always happy to help you. You can make an appointment by phone (08) 9444 0085 or via email email@example.com
How long should I allow for an appointment? What do I need to bring?
You should allow 1 hour for your initial appointment and 1/2 hour for retrying gowns or collection of your gown. Wearing nude seamless underwear or shape wear can be helpful when trying on gowns, but not essential. Feel free to bring along any gown inspiration you might have, it helps us to see your vision and bring it to life. The most valuable thing to bring to your appointment is an open mind and trust that we are here to help you find your dream dress.
How do I pay for my gown?
We require a 50% deposit to order your gown, the balance will be due when your gown arrives at your collection appointment. We accept cash, credit card (in store only) or direct deposit.
Can I take photos?
Unfortunately photos are not allowed until you have decided to purchase a gown, then you will be able to snap away!
What sizes are available to try on?
We carry samples ranging from size 6-28 however we can order sizes either below or above this range. As we cannot stock a sample of every gown in every size, our stylists work their magic to make you feel comfortable and will try their hardest to make the gown fit you best as possible using a few tricks.
Do you sell bridesmaids or mother of the bride gowns?
We only specialise in bridal however we will try our hardest to give you any recommendations of places to try!
How far in advance do I need to order?
It is best to allow approximately 6-7 months for your gown to be ordered. Please also allow 1-2 months before your wedding for alterations.
We understand that not everyone has this timeframe to work with so there are other options. We sell beautiful sample gowns off the floor (at discounted prices for the budget conscious) and some designers offer rush fees to get your gown here on time (this servive does incur a charge).
What are alterations?
Your alteration appointment is when the finishing touches are made to your gown to make it perfect for you. All gowns require basic alterations, a hem (adjusted according to the height of your shoes), a bustle (to pin your train up later when you are ready to hit the dance floor) and other small tweaks. We have a few recommended seamstresses who are experienced in bridal however you are welcome to use your own if you prefer - our only advice is to do your research and ensure they are bridal experts.
We will provide you with the alterations details when you purchase your gown. All alterations costs are separate and will be paid to the seamstress directly.
How does sizing work? Can I make custom changes?
We order gowns closest to your size at the time of ordering. Some designers allow custom sizing if necessary (this service does incur a charge).
We understand that brides have different desires in a gown and thats why we allow some changes to our designs to suit your needs. Our stylists love to get creative and bringing your vision to life is what we are passionate about.
What if I lose weight?
We think every bride is beautiful just as they are! Your gown will be ordered according to your size at the time of ordering however adjustments can easily be made at alterations. Be sure to speak to your stylist at your appointment if you have any concerns.
