At Astra Bridal we seek out the best quality and most exciting gowns and accessories for your wedding day. If you are looking for a wedding dress in Auckland city then look no further than our Symonds Street store. This is the original Astra Store that opened in 1996 - how bridal fashion has changed! But we still deliver the same excellent service and a chance to share in your wedding day by helping you find the perfect wedding gown.
We don't have one look as we have the fortune to have the space to cover a wide range of tastes. No matter your wedding style: (be it boho, rustic, modern, princess, elegant) or your wedding look: (be it backless, strapless, ballgown, slim gown, tea length) we have something in store that will surely make your heart sing.
We also cater for all size ranges with our samples varying from a size 6 to a size 26. We do our best to ensure every bride gets to have a special bridal experience at Astra Bridal Auckland City.
Our staff are trained to give advice on gown fit, colour, fabric, design to suit your body shape and the style of wedding. They are also the most passionate bridal team you will find in Auckland.
The salon is in a heritage building, which hugely limits what we can do to the place but also gives us a great double height ceiling and some original Kauri floors....

What our brides say about the consultants in the Auckland City salon
Dear Esti, Kendall-Leigh and Ilyese,
As we are emerging from one of the most amazing days of our lives, we wanted to pause and acknowledge your incredible contribution to this special event. We were blown away by your attention, care, interest and encouragement as my daughters and I shared this significant moment together with you… and to walk out with the dress of Amy's dreams was incredible! Your interest in terms of asking about Amy and Joshua’s relationship, their engagement, where the wedding was going to be held etc... helped to make Amy feel like such a princess and I am so grateful. The card and personal touch that arrived with the ordered veil was the icing on the cake.
Your dress was perfect, Amy looked and felt stunning and the day itself was simply spectacular. THANK YOU!
Cathryn Bell and Amy Archibald

I want to thank you for your help and enthusiasm.
We went to a number of different bridal shops looking at dresses and their hospitality and helpfulness did not match yours, I was very looked after by the ladies at Astra. And I can’t believe I met someone that had the same love of Lord of the Rings as me!
Once again, thank you for making my wedding dress shopping experience a great one. It will stick with me for a very long time.
All the best,

I need to express how amazing Astral Bridal Symonds Street is. I have never been more comfortable or made to feel so special in this store. I had visited quite a few bridal stores before this and nothing compared to this experience. Ladies please shell out and do the $125 exclusive VIP session. It is well worth the money. The store itself is gorgeous and comfortable. Where do I get started on the staff?! Kendall-Leigh and Ilyse were amazing! They took care of everything and made me feel like a bride. Leading up to the appointment there was clear and open communication so what I liked was available. Then when I decided to sleep on it and I wasn't sure of my decision, they allowed me time to revisit to be double sure and then I got all the feels and found my dress. I cannot thank Astra Bridal, Kendall-Leigh and Ilyese enough. Special mention to Kendall-Leigh, as a bridal consultant, she makes you feel like your friend and provides amazing advice! Ladies this is where you need to get your dress!!!!

You made my experience so enjoyable and I can’t thank you enough. I hope you are appreciated and told just how fabulous you are by the brides you help. You made me feel so at ease (which is hard to do haha) and even your emails were professional yet compassionate and understanding. You are an absolute superstar and even though I decided on another dress, I will forever recommend you at every opportunity.
Thanks so much,
