What can I expect in my Bridal appointment?

All our appointments include our undivided attention with a one-on-one consultant in our private Bridal suite. Initial appointments are a 90 minutes—sometimes you need that extra to try on the favourites again! We will learn all about the specific details of your wedding. You and your party will browse our selection of over 150 gowns, all handpicked with love to suit the modern yet timeless Confetti bride!

We will start with 5-7 wedding dresses and offer our expertise and recommendations if we feel you have missed something that might be perfect. If you fall in love (again!) then we will take your measurements and decide on the best size together via the designer size chart. Then of course, we celebrate!

What sizes are your samples in store?

Sample sizes vary by designers but we carry a range from bridal sizes 6-32 with the majority being 10-26. If your sizing is outside that range, not to worry, we have creative ways of making sure you can experience the look of your desired dress! Our gowns are made to order so depending on the designer we can order from a size 0-40+!

Do you offer in-house Alterations for my dress?

We sure do! We have an incredible Award-Winning team of 3 In-House Full-Time Dressmakers that are dedicated to ensuring our Brides and Customers dresses fit like a glove! One of our knowledgable stylists will be in every Alterations appointment with yourself and the Dressmaker to ensure that your vision comes to life! Let's make your dress uniquely you!

Which payment options do you offer?

We offer different layby payment options in our boutique. A minimum deposit of 50% is required to place your gown order with our Designers. Instalment payments can be transferred via bank deposit or paid over the phone or in store with either a MasterCard or Visa credit card, or you can pay the balance when your dress arrives. Our friendly and compassionate stylists understand how expensive the wedding planning process can be so be sure to ask your stylist if you require a more flexible payment plan.

How long will it take my gown to arrive?

For wedding dresses, ideally you will order your dress at least 8 months before your wedding to ensure we can secure your gown comfortably. This will give you time to choose your dream dress and for our amazing team to perfect any alterations to have your dress fitting perfectly for your big day.

However we have many brides who purchase their gowns at a much shorter time frame. We have great relationships with our Designers and have plenty of options that we are able to order in within just a few weeks! You will also have the options to purchase a gown “off the rack” or from brand new excess stock. Your bridal stylist has all the relevant information at her fingertips and will be able to tell you exactly when your dream gown is arriving.

How many guests can I bring to my appointment?

Our Brides are welcome to bring up to 4 guests to their Bridal appointment. We limit the number of guests to keep our Bridal suite comfortable for you and your Bride tribe.
