About Us & Testimonials

The Bridal Outlet is the perfect place for the bride on a budget. We have designer gowns which range from brand new gowns to samples used in the Astra Bridal stores. We have over 220 gowns in stock (in each store) of which a selection are featured on the web. Many more are available in store to be viewed and tried on. Also to be found in store is a range of accessories all discounted to allow you to grab a bargain and take the pressure off that wedding budget.

* No Try on Fees for the initial 5 gowns! ($5 per gown after that.)

* No Appointment Necessary during the week but Saturdays are usually crazy busy so it might pay to ring first.

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!
