Should I start with Armadale, Sydney Road, Moonee Ponds or somewhere else? I am only down in Melbourne for a week so would like to have it ordered on the day and be sent to me to have alterations done.
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?
Will a sequin lace wedding dress look out of place in a low key daytime wedding?
We're planning a low-key daytime wedding with a very small number of people followed with a lunchtime party at home to celebrate. I had been leaning towards a slim fitting sheath style dress with sequin lace for a shimmer all over. My friend has advised me to drop the sparkle and go for a more flowing dress, as she thinks that for the sparkly dress I'd need a more formal "black tie" dress code. Although both dresses look good on me, I associate more flowing dresses with feeling "pretty" and I'm after an elegant look which I associate more with the sheath dress. Our dress code for party guests is "cocktail attire (ties optional)". It's not too late to change the dress code for guests to something more formal and we could push the party timing back to late afternoon / early evening but with the party being at home (on our deck) she thinks black tie will probably look out of place. How formal / later in the day would I need to make the party for the sparkly dress to look appropriate?
How much should I expect to pay for taking the hem up on a simple wedding dress?
I've bought a simple wedding that fits well but needs a few inches taken off the bottom. The dress has several layers but no delicate lace or anything on the bottom
Is it a bad idea to buy a dress slightly too small and lose weight?
Or am I better off picking a new dress? I want this one dress but I can only find it in one size too small and I can't seem to find it anywhere else similar. What should I do! :(
How far off from the wedding date should I start looking for dresses?
I have no idea when to start looking for my dream dress. I'm someone who is well organised and ideally I'm trying to have everything for the big day sorted 12 - 8 months prior to the date however I'm stuck on when to start looking for my dress. I'm worried that if I leave it too close to the date then I'll stress out and rush the process and then on the other hand I'm worried I pick too early and want to change the dress.!! I might add that I also hate shopping and can never decide on things from clothes to dinner ha! Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
I found a dress, but I'm worried I won't be warm enough?
My wedding is outside, and I don't want to freeze while we have our photos done... it only has cap sleeves.
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)
