Hi Aussie Brides,
I’ll be in Canberra in a few weeks to find a wedding dress. Can anyone recommend some good bridal shops preferably where i can buy off the rack? I’m looking for a lace, fit & flare/mermaid dress and i have a budget of $1,500 AUD.
Also any other tips or other suggestions for bridal type shops would be so appreciated.

@islandbridey: nouveau riche queanbeyan are incredible! I seriously had the best service there. Its a really nice boutique. when u get there be clear about ur price range as they have some more expensive dresses as well (as u could easily get sucked into trying on much more expensive dresses). i would call & make an appointment if going on a weekend, also ask them if u can buy off the rack. I ended up getting my dress there after searching for 9 months including all over QLD as well. they are seriously amazing!
otherwise rosie’s bridal fyshwick were very down to earth, the stores not too flashy but friendly service & almost all dresses are $1500, the most expensive is $2500. they definatley sell off the rack.

@bride202: Thanks so much for your recommendations. My Maid/Matron of Honor who lives there actually did all the hard work of visiting all the shops and making appointments. Our first appt was at White Dove’s and the very first dress i tried on…THAT WAS IT!
