We love to ensure our Brides have our complete and full attention. To ensure we meet these needs, appointments are necessary.
We offer 2 types of appointments.
Our standard consultation runs for approximately 45 minutes. After the showroom walk through, we find that there is enough time to try on approximately 3-4 dresses.
Our extended consultation runs for approximately 1 ¼ hours. After your showroom walk through, we find you are able to try on approximately 7-8 Dresses. This appointment comes with a $25 charge which is made at the time of appointment booking.
We recommend our Extended Consultation to all Brides who feel they are not sure what they are after, or after visiting our website, have preselected more than 6 gowns that they would like to try.
Take some time to have a look at our Website and look through the Collections we have in store. Try to identify some gowns you like and please bring a note of these to discuss with your consultant.
If you are noting down more than 5-6 gowns we would suggest making an Extended Appointment.
Bring an open mind. We often see Bride’s falling in love with a dress that was completely different from what they thought they would like. Also don’t be surprised if you to find your perfect dress during your first appointment
Bring the list of gowns you like from what you have seen on our website or social media feeds.
Bring people whose opinion you value, people who know you well and those you want to share the experience of buying your gown with.
Make sure the people you bring will listen to what YOU want so that you are not overwhelmed with opinions which can take the focus off you. We find that more than 3-4 people can become overwhelming for the Bride.
We also have enough seating for 3 people outside each Bridal fitting room.
We understand that purchasing your wedding gown is a big Decision and sometimes this cannot be done in the one appointment. We offer the opportunity to come back for a second visit to help you make your decision. If you require more than 2 appointments, the third appointment will carry a $50 3rd Appointment charge.
Most of the sample gowns we have in store are from size 6-14. We do have a selection of gowns up to a size 20.
At the request of our designers we adhere to a policy of no photos or videos during your Bridal appointment. Once you have made your decision and purchased your Gown, you are most welcome to take pictures.
It is always important to discuss all your options with your consultant at the time of purchasing your gown. Some veils have a 4 month delivery.
Of course! Many Brides find their dress on their first appointment, and many are happy to select all of their accessories as they are choosing their dress and everything can be tried on together.
You are more than welcome to revisit the store at a later date to choose, but again it is important to discuss what your preferences are so lead times for orders can be discussed with you.
No, you don’t need a specific appointment. Please visit our store at any time to discuss and try on accessories.
