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

Yes we do, to the best of our knowledge.  Technology is amazing and we are able to view the factories regularly and have visits scheduled in the future.

Thanks for the question.

How have wedding dress styles changed in the last few years?

There are always changes occuring.

The Silhouettes tend to remain the same year on year but the materials used are the key factors that change.  

Lace, vintage styles are always within collections, but we have expereienced more clients looking for the more simplistic styling this year.  

Although Designer Collections are created for Global selection, I have found that trends do vary Country to Country.  Being from the Uk originally and now living in Australia, I have noticed that due to the different types of Wedding Styling/Themes this has a great bearing on the gown selection process and styling chosen.

Thanks and hope this helped a little with your query :-)

How expensive are wedding dresses in Australia?

A range is fine, looking at my budget and not sure what to allocate to the dress


Gowns in Australia according to statistics says the average spend on a gown is around $2500.  However, there are a huge amount of gowns available to suit smaller budgets.

Our store has no gown over $1500 with many of the re-orderable gowns under $1000.   Purchasing #Off the Rack# is also a good option for clients on budgets.

Do some research, do not be nervous to call stores and ask them what there average gown pricing is before your make your shortlist of stores to visit.  When you are ready to visit and try on, let them know your budget so they can assist you better and offer you guidance :-)

How to wedding dress shop?

Any tips for booking apppointments and tips for finding the right dress will be greatly appreciated


Firstly enjoy it :-)

Secondly, depending on your location, do a little research of what stores hold in relation to sizing, styles etc and then make a booking.  Clients with bookings are guaranteed a much better experience than if you just walk in to a store, as the stores may not have enough staff on to assist you on a 1 to 1 basis 100%.

Be open to trying on lots of different silhouettes until you find the one that you feel is where you want to focus and then it gets serious LOL. 

Having support at your Appointment can make it fun and ease nerves but something to remember is that it is your day and we all have different ideas of what we would wear, but that doesnt mean you should!   Honesty is good but choose the gown for you.

Have a wonderful time shopping and I hope you find the gown of your dreams really soon 


Should I eat before my dress fitting?


Yes, please eat and drink something!  It is never good to miss a meal.

Depending on the time of day you have your fittings will help determine what and how soon before your fitting to eat.  Most stores,//Seamstress Services, would have water/refreshment available for you.  

Fitting can take some time, and you will not be walking around for the majority of it, so it is important to ensure you dont feel light headed or nauseaous. and try wherever possible to have a toilet visit before you get dressed in your gown (just in case!( 

Great question :-)

What should I take to my first dress fitting?


For your fittings, it is essential that shoes being worn on the day,  are taking so length can be determined.  If you have special underwear for your big day this is also beneficial.  Most gowns have inbuilt bras and therefore a large majority of the time Bra's aren't required, but that is entirely at the brides discretion and how comfortable they feel in the gown etc.

Water if your store does not offer refreshments is advisable and eat something light before your fitting to prevent getting light headed, as you could be stood still for some time in one position.

Hope this helps


I'm currently pregnant... where can I get a wedding dress from?


First Congratulations !

Secondly in answer to your question.  Most bridal stores should carry a range of gowns that would work for a Pregant Bride to Be.  We recently had the pleasure of creating something specifically for our lovely bride.  She loved one of our gowns 'Charmaine' and we brought it to store as a  piece (bodice and skirt) and adapted for mum and bump once in store.  She was a remote client so we did this over days so she only had to visit Perth Once and then could take it home with her.  It worked well but not all stores can do this I appreciate.

Empire line gowns sit above the bump so they are a good silhouette to look for when search, but some are proud of their belly and want it on show and go for soft fabric fitted.

Enjoy and take care.


Where do a find a hoop/petticoat to go under my wedding dress?


Most Stores will carry a line of Petticoats/Hoops for purchase. 

But if we can help further, please feel free to let me know some information on your gown and we can try and assist in finding a hoop to suit you and the dress - our Hoops are $60-90.

Thank you
