The dress was amazing and I honestly felt like Cinderella!

Monica you are amazing and I wanted to share these photos with you so you could show off your amazing skills. No one believed me when I told them got the sleeves custom added.

To IIlyese and team – you made me feel like I was the important person in the store

Thank you and thank you again.

Dee was recommended to me by another plus-sized bride. I was nervous, and I didn't want to pay a million "trying on" fees just trying to find a dress I liked.

I was actually so nervous I would have to settle for an okay dress because of my size...

But I found my dream dress and it was honestly so perfect!

Dee was so wonderful.

Firstly, she helped me stay chill when my family were being...helpful.. (dress shopping can be so stressful, but Dee was great at working with my family while making sure I knew she was there to help me and not them - a real professional)

Secondly, she organised my fittings within my difficult schedule and followed up with both me and the seamstress to make sure everything was going as planned.

Thirdly, she made picking up my dress all ready (steamed and with accessories) so easy for my mother.

She communicated with me throughout the whole process and I looked forward to catching up with her during fittings.

Seriously, Dee is amazing. Don't hesitate to go and visit her.

Thank you so much to the lovely ladies at the Auckland City store. You made the process of trying on and choosing my perfect dress so enjoyable! With very prompt emails and little updates of the ETA of my dress arriving you took all the stress away! I was lucky enough to be one of Elysia’s first brides and she made me feel beyond comfortable in the fitting room and was so easy to talk to about the dress process! Ilyese was amazing to work with as well and she really showed her talents and knowledge which was very appreciated! Thank you so much again! Brooke x
