WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!
We like to think of our boutique as a hidden gem in the heart of Gippsland. Our stylish little space is friendly and stress-free, and our commitment to only seeing one bride at a time means that you have our undivided attention from start to finish!
We want your dress shopping experience to be unforgettably fun, below are just a few tips to ensure that you have the most memorable day possible!
YEP, WE DO REQUIRE APPOINTMENTS!
Bookings can be made both online and over the phone; or feel free to pop into our little boutique to introduce yourself in person! We require a minimum of 24 hours notice for all online bookings; however if you do happen to stumble across our little boutique in person, we'll do our best to fit you in on the same day.
When booking, you'll be given the option of a dress shopping appointment, or a design consultation.
We encourage bride's to begin shopping for their dress 6-12 months prior to the wedding to allow room for external factors such as final alterations; however can work to a tighter timeframe if required.
We understand that finding a time when everyone is available can be tricky - for after-hours appointments please call us directly to make the appointment.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU...
Apart from your glowing bride smile and go-getter attitude? If you have already got anything in mind that you wanted to wear on the day, we'd love it if you could bring it with you! If nothing else, we recommend bringing a nude strapless bra.
Please ensure you avoid wearing fake tan or heavy makeup to prevent staining our precious samples.
GETTING THE GIRLS TOGETHER,
Please note that due to Covid, we currently ask that you bring no more than two guests to your appointment.
We want your dress shopping day to be a fun and memorable experience, we don't mind if you bring one of your closest family members or your whole bridal party! However we recommend bringing only a close few, as often too many opinions can be overwhelming.
For design consultations we prefer to have you all to ourselves! We recommend attending the initial consultation solo, however we can always organise a big reveal for your entourage at a later appointment.
THE INS AND OUTS,
Important decisions shouldn't be rushed, that's why we allow a full hour and a half for your appointment. We want your time with us to be as enjoyable and relaxing as possible, and that's why you'll have our undivided attention from start to finish. We'll show through our racks of couture creations and designer gowns, before selecting a variety to try for your appointment. If you happen to find the one, we'll carefully take your measurements so we can place your order.
Unlike shopping for regular clothes, your sample gown may not be in your size. We encourage all our brides to remain open minded; and expect to try a variety of sizing in store.
Design consultations go for an hour and are usually one-on-one with our designer. We want to hear all about you and your partner, your style, and ideas - so that we can create the perfect dress! We'll have you try a few gowns on for reference, do some rough sketching on the spot, look at fabric samples together, and provide you with an obligation free quote at the end of it! Once we confirm the design, it'll be in the hands of the couturier to make to your exact measurements! If nothing else, we're just happy to meet you!
We understand that every bride has her budget, and we have worked hard to ensure that all our high quality gowns come without the unnecessarily high price tag. All our gowns are priced between $1100 and $5000 (Please note that custom creations may vary depending on design).
We ask for a non-refundable 50% deposit upfront, and the remaining 50% is to be paid when you collect the dress.
