At Astra bridal we are all about creating a great bridal experience and taking the stress out of selecting and receiving your wedding gown. To try on gowns we offer a stylist appointment. Our recently engaged page tells you all about the process of choosing a wedding gown.
You can just call in and talk to us about having a sylist appointment at any time. We can book you in for an appointment or you can just go ahead at the time if we have space. We do a lot of background work to maximise your appointment with us so please get in touch via phone or email whenever you are ready to begin.
Our trained sylists work with you to find the gown that is both perfect for your body shape, your personality and your location. Our expertise is something we are renowned for. We will work with you in the fitting room to help you put the gowns on and also accessorise them for you to ensure you get the complete picture. We also hope to make your experience a fun and relaxing one.
A basic appointment is $60. This is paid at your first visit and then waived for any subsequent visits. We also offer an exclusive stylist appointment, for those wanting just a little bit more. This is an experience involving some bubbles, nibbles and having the salon to yourself. Ask your store for more information.
Because we want you to get the most out of your time with us, and tailor your appointment specifically for you, we like to have a chat before you come in. That starts us on the path of learning about you and your wedding plans. Our feedback from this process is that it is an awesome start to the exceptional experience we aim to give. We will only talk for as long as you want - we won't tie you up for hours........
You can spread your gown over 20 Weekly payments or split it between ordering and arrival. Both of these options are interest free. Your stylist can discuss your personal needs when you are ready to order. We accept major credit cards.
We provide a list of highly recommend seamstresses that we have worked with for a number of years. We find an external alterations service offers brides greater flexibility in fitting times and a better pricing structure than we can offer. Many gowns don't need any alterations.
Yes, as we are the exclusive stockists we can order any gown. We don't necessarily have stock (we would love to have them all!) but we can get the gown on your behalf. Often we have something similar so you can try it to know if it really is "the one".
For a specific gown please contact us first. We share stock between stores to allow us to offer you a much larger range. It means we have over 600 styles but obviously not all in one location.
Standard make time for a gown is four to six months dependng on the designer. We recommend that you start looking at least seven months before the wedding. This allows you time for selecting from the full range and having alterations done, if they are needed.
All our gowns are for sale off the rack but also we choose to work with designers that carry stock. Trust us we will do our best to get the gown you want. If you have left your selection to the last minute we do recommend that you come with an open mind as to which gown you want.
