Is there a charge for fittings?
We are open Thursday to Sunday, with late nights available on Thursday and Friday. Our evening and weekend appointments incur a $50 appointment fee. Our weekday fittings are free of charge. Your fitting will be 90 minutes long, you will be served a glass of bubbly to help you get into the swing of such an exciting time and you will have the entire boutique to yourself!
How many people can I bring to my fitting?
We have a beautiful space that comfortably sits 4 people including the bride. If you wish to bring more people to your appointment please let us know in advance.
How long are appointments?
Bridal consultations are upto 90 minutes long
Do you hire/rent out your gowns?
Unfortunately we do not hire out our gowns but we do have samples available for purchase for those with a lower budget!
What if I can’t try a dress on because of my size?
We have lots of magical ways of pulling dress's in or extending dresses out to give you a clear idea of what the gown will look like. We may also have other gowns in your size that are similar to try on to allow you to get a good idea of fit. 99% of brides require dresses to be extended or pulled in during a consultation so please do not let this worry you, it’s normal.
Do you offer alterations?
Yes! Sarah the seamstress will take care of any of your alteration requirements. Sarah will be at your fitting when your gown arrives to consult with you on alteration requirements. You are also more than welcome to take care of your alterations independently, please just let us know prior so we don't book Sarah if she's not required.
Do you stock plus size gowns?
Yes! Georgia and Charlotte Bridal go up to size 30. Dando and Jesus Peiro go up to size 20.
Do do dress payments work?
Once you select the dress of your dreams Natalie will email you an invoice with payment instructions. We accept bank transfers from any NZ bank account. Credit cards can also be accepted with a 2.5% surcharge. You will be required to pay 50% of the total invoice to get your gown and accessories into production with the remaining balance due upon their arrival.
