Thoroughly enjoyed my experience today. Liz was fantastic to deal with; nice and calm, listened to what I liked and disliked and was not pushy at all. I tried multiple dresses on, and some multiple times, and nothing was too much for her. First experience, would definitely recommend

Great selection of dresses. Many Bridal shops only seem to stock size 10 and up so it was great for me to try petite sizes! Awesome range of prices to suit any budget. Liz was nothing short of wonderful. She makes it fun and is honest about what works well with your shape, size, etc. She also gave really useful information about the dress if you need to change it - ease of alteration, changes that could be made such as adding straps etc.
Thank you, again, Liz!!

Went into the bridal outlet to have a look! Straight away I felt at ease when Liz welcomed me. She really listened to what I wanted. That was a huge deal for me. We ended up trying a dress I wouldn’t have picked (as it had no lace on it and that’s what I wanted) but she went out of her way with her skills and literally the vision in my head was what I was staring at in the mirror.

Hi Liz and Cas,

Just wanted to drop you both an email to say thanks so much for your help and expertise on Saturday morning! I absolutely adore my dress and I’m stoked to have found it so quickly and at such an amazing price.

My mum, sister and I wouldn’t have looked at the dress you chose were it not for your insistence to keep an open mind and to try it on first and I’m so pleased I listened!!

You were both wonderful to work with- keep up the great work!

Mum and I spent 3 hours in the Albany branch this morning and I found the gown! My dress is so beautiful and I saved $2100 on the sale price as they are an Outlet store. Liz the manager was just incredible and we had lots of laughs today. Both her and Cas are very knowledge and super helpful. I also brought me some bridal shoes for $20! I could not be happier with my purchase and thanks to you both for the fantastic service that we received this morning. Thank you!
