Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Rhonda Hemmingway Couture offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Where can a bride buy a non-white wedding dress?

Good morning,

Non-white wedding dresses are actually not that uncommon, you'd be surprised!  Many are available off-the-rack at boutiques all across Australia.
But if you've decided to go with some colour instead of the 'traditional' white - it might be best to have your dress custom-made.

Your dress should be as unique as your taste and personality.
At Rhonda Hemmingway Couture we can make anything you like, in any colour variation. From traditional white to blush pink, and even black!
We've also made traditional sari dresses in some mesmerizing colours.

Thank you for your message! Regards,
Ashleigh on behalf of Rhonda Hemmingway.

Just wondered on the production of the dresses? Do you support ethical and humanitarian production?

Hi there,
We're proud supporters of ethical and humanitarian production, as such, all of our gowns at Rhonda Hemmingway Couture are made in our studio, by the very same members of our staff that you meet for your fittings and consultations. Each gown is lovingly handcrafted by our excellent team, in-house. And all of our supplies are carefully and ethically sourced.

Thanks for your enquiry!
-- Ashleigh on behalf of Rhonda Hemmingway.

Should I eat before my dress fitting?

Preferably not!

Of course you should never starve yourself either.
Eat a nice dinner and if you're showing up bright and early, eat breakfast after the fitting.

How does a dress fitting work? What do I need to do?

And where do I start?

Hi there,
The first thing we do is have a meeting to discuss the dress that you want. If we go ahead, I make you toile (calico version to get the perfect fit), from there we choose the fabric and proceed. The process usually takes 4-5 fittings.

Thank you for your question!

Where can I hire a wedding gown in Sydney?

Rhonda Hemmingway Cotoure, located in Darlinghurst is happy to lend you the dress of your dreams!

answered by Ashleigh on behalf of Rhonda Hemmingway.

What should I take to my first dress fitting?

You should always bring a good bra and your wedding shoes - if possible.

answered by Ashleigh on behalf of Rhonda Hemmingway.

Lace up dresses do you buy smaller than your size or your actual size?

Trying to understand if buying a size or two down with a lace up is better at avoiding it being altered as im not sure how many sizes a lace up dress can give you or do I get my actual size?

The general rule of thumb is to be measured and decide based on your measurements.
But often times your regular dress size will be adequate.
