We welcome you to make an appointment with one of our consultants for a two hour, one-on-one style session - where we'll assist you in finding the perfect gown for your individual style, personality and wedding theme. You'll delight in trying on a wide range of styles and designs from our large collection of gowns - we have over 125 gowns in store in sizes 8 to 28 - ensuring that every bride can enjoy their consultation to the fullest - and many of our gowns can be customised to make them individual to your requirements.
You're welcome to bring along your Bridal Party, special friends and family members - to assist you in making your important decision. Our spacious consultation spaces can accomodate large groups - so if you need a little extra assistance or want to include cherished loved ones in this special part of your wedding journey - we'd love to meet them.
During your consultation, one of our consultants will take the time to get to know you and the wedding you're planning before becoming your personal shopper for the next two hours. During that time you'll try on a variety of styles of gowns, slowly but surely narrowing your choices down to a shortlist until you're ready to make your final decision. We also carry a full compliment of accessories including jewellery, veils and shoes - which you're welcome to try on to complete your bridal look.
We do understand that for many brides - shopping for your wedding dress can be a nerve-wracking experience. Our consultants are trained to make this as relaxing and easy for you as possible. One of our consultants will be with you in the fitting room at all times, helping you in and out of the gowns, explaining how they fit and answering any questions you may have. We also understand that some brides may feel uncomfortable or modest about being seen in their underwear and so robes are provided for use during consultations if our customers wish. Our fitting rooms, and store, are also fitted wth air-conditioning to ensure that our customers and their guests are comfortable regardless of the outside temperature.
Once you've found your perfect Bridal style - our consultant will carefully measure you to ensure your gown is ordered in the best size. (All of our gowns are made to order to a standard size and once they arrive - we'll assist you to insure your gown is the perfect fit on your special day.) Some of our gowns can be ordered in the correct length - so if you have already picked out your shoes for your special day - you're best to bring them with you - just in case.
There is absolutley NO pressure on you to make your decision on your first visit. All of our brides are welcome to return for a second, or third visit (at no extra cost) to help them narrow down their choices - until they find their perfect gown. You're picking the most important outfit you'll ever wear - we totally understand that it's not a decision to be made lightly.
Our consultants are hugely passionate and enthusiatic about all things wedding and LOVE to talk about your special day. With many years experience in the Industry - they can offer a wealth of knowlegde - so feel free to pick their brains during your consultation.
And - if you're looking to REALLY get into celebration mode when picking your wedding gown and want to make the occasion even more special - contact us to book your VIP Consultation where not only will you have the full attention of two consultants instead of one - but you'll have the boutique all to yourselves AND we'll throw in a bottle of bubbles and chocolates free of charge for you and your party to share!
