Essential Information


During these uncertain times, we are committed to accepting in-person appointments for bridal fittings at our Ryde Showroom. However, as new public health measures are put into place, please be aware that this may change.

From March 28, 2020 we are no longer accepting walk-in customers. If you wish to try on a wedding gown you must make an appointment with us.

Similarly, we request that you come to your bridal gown fitting with a maximum of two (2) additional guests.

These measures are to ensure your safety and the health and well-being of our team.

Please follow these instructions:

  • If you have returned from overseas, even if you are well, you must be isolated for 14 days from the date you arrived in Australia. Isolation means remaining at your home or in your accommodation.
  • Do not come in for a bridal fitting within the isolation period.
  • If you develop symptoms during your isolation period, seek medical attention via Telehealth.

Thank you for your understanding.

The majority of our wedding dresses are priced between $1,500 and $2,750. We have a number of sample wedding gowns that are on sale.

Please give us a call on (02) 9808 5535 at your earliest convenience. Alternatively, contact our head fitting stylist (Sandra) via email.

Bridal sizing is very different to normal clothing sizes. That is, wedding dresses tend to run smaller than your regular size.

We use the US standard sizing system and most wedding gowns can be ordered in size 0 through 16. Our in-store sample ranges from size 8 – 12.

Periodically, Emerald Bridal releases sample gowns at huge discounts. You can find our collection of cheap wedding dresses on our ON SALE page.

We do not usually have plus size sample gowns in-store.

Frequently Asked Questions


In all honesty, there is no way of knowing until you try a dress on and look in the mirror. There are all sorts of online advice on what bridal dresses suit a particular type of body shape.

Ignore these!

The best wedding dress is the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Give our wedding gown silhouettes guide a read to help you get a better understanding of what is available.

Larger sized brides will look beautiful in A-line dresses. The main thing you want to avoid is body-hugging designs that flare from the knees or above. The choice of fabric can also help you appear more slender. Choose a light fabric such as chiffon and silk over bulky fabrics such as velvet and satin.

A gown with a high neckline will help you achieve a taller look. You may also want to try on short sleeved or sleeveless dresses with long gloves to elongate your appearance.

For starters, avoid empire or cinched waists as these will accentuate larger breasts. Try, instead, a designer wedding v-neck dress or high neck wedding dress with a keyhole yoke. In terms of dress shape, ask your bridal shop stylist for a fitted bodice or a straight skirt.

For tall brides, a dropped waist (like the basque style) can help. Avoid column/sheath silhouettes as these can add the perception of a couple of vertical inches (which is the exact opposite of what you want). Beyond the dress itself, hats or dramatic veiling are other options to consider.

Yes. All designer wedding dresses require some form of personalisation to your body shape (essentially, this is what couture bridal design is – made to measure).

Off-the-rack wedding dresses (like the ones we offer) will require some form of alteration to ensure the perfect fit for you. We recommend having a quick look at our A-Z wedding dress terminology guide to make wedding gown shopping a little less confusing.

Depending on the material of your wedding dress, wearing the right underwear is super important. To avoid embarrassment, as a rule of thumb, make sure that your undergarments match your skin tone.

Yes, an appointment is required for a fitting at our Sydney bridal showroom.

To ensure that your dress fits you perfectly, we recommend leaving a 6-month buffer. Whilst we can rush in certain orders, this will restrict the number of designs you may choose from.

We do! We have partnered with Alabaster The Label to provide your bridesmaids with gorgeous designs. Ask our stylists about them.
