We know planning a wedding can be stressful enough and putting together a wedding that’s been pushed forward can be even more overwhelming.

Let our experienced stylists help take some burden off your shoulders because we can assist you in finding a last minute wedding dress that will make you look and feel magical.

We specialise in ready-to-wear wedding gowns where most dresses have a lead time of 5-8 months.

But don’t lose hope yet!

We stock a large inventory of sample and discontinued bridal gowns that you can try on at our Ryde showroom and if you like it – you can take it home literally off-the-rack immediately!

As you can see, there are plenty of choices to choose from. We have more that we don’t have online so make sure you come in for a viewing/fitting.

From strapless to beading, from chiffon and tulle to lace wedding dress, from spaghetti strap to off-the-shoulder to all types of necklines (sweetheart, v-neck) and silhouettes (ballgown, trumpet, a-line, mermaid, sheath).

Let us make your wedding day or elopement a day to remember.
