Today, we are going to have a look at some bridal shops and wedding dress styles for the lucky loved ones living in and around the Sydney area. Choosing the perfect dress to portray the perfect “you” on your special day can be very challenging. The bridal dress is the star attraction of any wedding. The Sydney area is quite massive and there are people from a multitude of financial backgrounds as well as tastes. 3 shops we suggest to keep an eye out for when buying or renting your perfect wedding dress are the following:
Brides of Sydney – Located on Clarence St
AbbeyBridal – Located in the Dymocks building on George St
Colour18 – Located on Sussex St
These three shops in particular have been chosen as they specialize in different styles for different purposes.
AbbeyBridal showcases only designer collections. Each one of their designs portrays an essence of sophisticated beauty. Currently, Sottero and Midgley’s Monaco Collection and the Aracella collection by Maggie Sottero are on display. You can walk in or have a browse through online. These dresses are glamourous, portraying an artful blend of refined styling and eye catching drama. You can book an appointment through their website and arrange a day for you to check out these innovative, Swarovski laced dresses.
The Aracella collection is enchanting and unabashedly romantic. Ball gowns are adorned with glittering Swarovski crystals bodices. This collection has been designed with the classic romantic in mind. The collection consists of soft colours ranging from creamy blush to soft gold and sparkling champagne. Accented with a feminine touch the voluminous skirts are paired with bodices sprinkled with opulent embellishments.
Brides of Sydney offers a mixture of both contemporary bridal wear as exclusive designer collections. It is one of the biggest stores in the heart of Sydney. Their elegant website showcases bridesmaid dresses also. Stunning designs by Madison James, Allure, Eddy K and Casablanca are on display. Their designs never cease to amaze in bringing out the best in a bride.
One of the most popular choices is the Allure Romance Bridal gown. With an English net sweetheart bodice, lace applique begins under the bust and continues all over the slim fitting gown. The hem is also accented with a scalloped lace edging. The catch here is that all their dresses are very much in demand and we suggest you contact them for availability before heading in to the store.
Colour18 is a completely different type of shop. They offer entire wedding packages from planning, decoration to dresses. They will take care of every aspect and make sure you don’t have to be calling a few hundred different places for different items and services. They have bridal dresses for you to buy or rent. Specifically an extensive selection of Qi Pao and Kwa dresses for women are on offer. Affordability is the main reason you would choose colour 18. Their dresses are made in China and offer very little versatility. Although their websites tend to not showcase much their in-store options tend to vary significantly on a weekly bases.
