Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to make an appointment?
We like to give each of our brides our undivided attention, which means appointments are always preferred. If you’re more of a spontaneous kind of bride and come in without an appointment, we will do our best to find an available time for you that day, or make an appointment for you to come back at another date. When booking ahead for appointments on Thursday evenings and Saturdays as these days can book out well in advance.. To make a booking you can call us on 07 3831 2257. Alternatively you can simply schedule a time via online booking tool.
Are appointments Free?
All first bridal appointments incur a $30 fee, which is required at the time of booking. If you select a Luxe Lounge appointment these incur a $399 fee. Find more information about the Luxe Lounge here.

Standard appointments are between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours and Luxe Lounge appointments are booked for up to 2 hours.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
We encourage you to wear the underwear you are planning to wear on your wedding day. Whether that is a strapless bra, seamless underwear or shape-wear, it can be more encouraging to see the closest picture to what you will look like on the big day! We do recommend wearing nude for the best result.
How many people can I bring to my appointment?
It’s so important to have the nearest and dearest close by at this special time. A maximum of four guests + the bride are permitted into the fitting room, this is for your comfort as well as those around you.
Can I take photos?
Most definitely! You are also welcome to Skype or Facetime loved ones that weren’t able to make your appointment. Just ask your Style Consultant to set up an iPad for you.
