Congratulations, you found your dress!

Now to take you through the next steps. Part of your Bridal journey is knowing that you’re in safe hands and leaving it up to the experts to deliver you your dream dress for your big day.


Once you've said yes, we will take your measurements and go through the paperwork for your dress while you get to sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of the fizzy stuff! Upon placing your order, we secure a deposit of 35% then giving you the flexible option of paying in instalments or clearing your balance just prior to fittings/collection, whichever comes first.


We endeavour to receive your dress 8 weeks before your big day at which your Bridal Consultant will contact you and will schedule you with our preferred dress maker for your first Bridal fitting. If you would rather use a different dress maker thats no problem at all, just let us know during that phone call.


Your first fitting will generally take place 6 weeks before your big day! This is the part where so many Brides are nervous yet excited as they have not seen their dress in a while! But do not fear, you chose your dress because you loved it and this time you are stepping into 'your' dress and you will love it even more.


You are in safe hands with our preferred dress maker, she will do all the nips and tucks required for your dress to sit right on the day and will have your dress ready for collection within 10 days of your Wedding. The cost of your alterations can be paid direct to the dress maker upon collection.


At this point, you are ready to go and say 'I do'. Don't forget to send on your Wedding pics, we feel extremely proud to see our Brides on their special day!
