Dresses made recently - Inspired by Monique L. "Waltz" gown

The same? Not quite! But who will notice right? No-one attending your wedding will be doing a side by side comparison like we do! We shipped the magnificent gown we made (shown on right) to our very happy USA based bride yesterday. The original Monique L. "Waltz" gown provided the basis for our bride's design (shown on the left) costs USD13,630 (AUD17,800 approx). Our designer-inspired version of that style is shown on the right and cost AUD1590, which is less than 10% of the price of the original gown on the left. Sometimes, the most expensive part of a wedding dress is the little designer label sewn on the inside of the dress. If you would like a high quality...

Our beautiful bride Pauline's custom wedding dress - Perth, Western Australia

Our beautiful bride, Pauline, has kindly shared this gorgeous photo of her wearing the custom wedding dress we made for her wedding which was held on the week-end.

Where are the top designer brand wedding dresses made?

Yes, really! Most brides are very surprised when they learn that many of the leading wedding dress brands stocked at their local bridal shop are manufactured in China. So, why do these wedding dresses cost thousands, you ask? That's what we'd like to know too. And the price of the dress does not include the cost of alterations. Designer brand dresses are only available in standard sizes, so alterations are almost always required to ensure a perfect fit. And alterations can add hundreds to the original price of the dress. Many of the custom wedding dresses we create are hand-made replicas of, or are inspired by the leading designer brands, and our dresses are created at around half the price...

Beautiful Natural Woodland Wedding inspiration - Erika and Steve

It's so lovely to see a shift towards personal, intimate weddings like this and seeing couples expressing their love for each other in their own unique ways. Today's inspiring couple are Erika and Steve from Washington who were married in a beautiful woodland setting. Everything about this couple's video is so touching and heart warming, that it's better for me not to try to describe it, and best for you to watch and experience their day in its fullness. I'm completely head over heels with Erika's whole bridal look from top to toe - her wedding gown, dramatic long flowing wedding veil and her floral headpiece. If you are reading this and would like a beautiful look like Erika's for...
