if I'm shopping by myself do i still have to book an appointment with dress stores?

Hi

Congratulations on your forth coming wedding. It is always best as not everyone will take walkins. We suggest an appointment is best but if you walk in and we can see you we certainly will. This time of year it can get extremely busy so just give us a call before you come to make sure.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Kindest regards

Can bridal shops modify a designer dress substantially??

I have made up my dream dress in my head but need it to come together, for example I want a mermaid style but want the train a particular design and length and I also want off the shoulder (more structured than just arm bands though). If I were to purchase a strapless dress from a botique would the alterations be allowed to modify the dress to this degree? And in saying this would matching lace be hard to get ?

Hi 

Congratulations on your forth coming wedding. Absolutely a dress can be modified usually very easily, or if you prefer we could always custom make the gown for you. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss further.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Kindest regards

How many dresses would you try on?

If you fell in love with the first dress, would you try on a few more to be sure?

Hi


Thank you for your question. It can vary considerably we had a customer in yesterday tried on one gown her very first and ordered. You could also if you are unsure try on several. I myself fell in love with a dress but it was so different to what I had in my head I kept trying only to go back after a long day and realise that was my dress all along.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or if you would like to book an appointment I would be more than happy to organise this for you.

Kindest regards

Jean

Returning a wedding dress

Hi, hope all is well. Just wondering if I have purchased a dress and paid for it fully. Is it normally possible to return and purchase another one that is more expensive?

Hi,

Yes definitely ask the store, we would always try and work with our brides where possible so they have their dream gown.

Regards Jean


Help me on wedding gowns! What is off-the-rack, sample & brand new gowns

I've been getting confusing advise from friends, can someone please help. What exactly is off-the-rack gown? What is the difference between off-the-rack and brand new gown? Is off-the-rack gown considered a BRAND NEW gown? (some shops said so) What to expect from an off-the-shelf wedding gown? Will it require fixing? How about brand new gown? Will they be in a better condition without defects? I want a lace gown, so I am worried about defects on off-the-rack gown given its delicate nature.

Hi Mei

An off the rack gown is usually one you purchase from the stock just like if you go to Myers and purchase one of their evening gowns. A new gown will be ordered in to your sizes ie 6 8 10 and so on and this will take several months to arrive.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information we are always happy to assist.

Kind regards

tailor made wedding dresses

Hi, I'm very picky when it comes to styling and have a certain vision in mind for my wedding dress. I was wondering how much it would cost roughly to have a dress custom made to my vision? Also if you could point me in the right direction that would be great! :)

Hi Milli

Firstly congratulations on your forth coming wedding. We do Custom Design and make, as well as can customise pre-existing gowns depending on what design you are looking for we would always advise the cheapest course of action. Our Custom made on average are around $2,500 to $3,500 although can start lower and can go higher depending on design structure and fabrics etc. Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions we may assist with.

Weight loss and wedding dresses.

I've been told I need to start looking for my wedding dress, however I'd planned on losing a significant amount of weight by the wedding (9 months away) So my question is, do I look now or wait and how long can I leave it? Thanks

Hi Tracey

Looking for a dress can be daunting especially if you are intending to loose weight. However don't stress even if you intend to loose a signifcant amount we can speak to some of the designers and re measure slightly nearer the time on some occassions. However if this is not an option, when your dress does arrive we can always adjust even if it is a few sizes to be altered.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information we are always happy to assist.
