Helu! I live in Wellington…but we’re getting married at the top of the South island.  Where did everyone get there dresses from? I’m finding that prices over here are…pricey.

I got mine at CC Ward (bridal shop in New Plymouth) and have had to stop myself from bidding on dresses on Trade Me (that I *may* like better). Most of the bridal shops seem to be excessively expensive – but that’s all we’ve got to go with…. Unless you want to order from overseas, take your chances with a ‘made to fit’ from China (not keen!) or go to the sale racks in stores?

I got mine through the States and it was quite pricey in nz huh! I had some time up my sleave and a trip to the States lined up for a holiday so it all worked out. I refused to pay what NZ supplier were charging Kiwis – about a 250% mark up on what american brides pay!

nzbride, that’s so true! I tried on some Casablanca dresses in Auckland when I was last there, and they were charging upwards of $2800, I later found out that I could order from an American store (shipping was around $100) and it would cost only aruond $1,100 upwards…um what?

 

The main issue is that most dress places over here don’t stock brands that American ones do. How I wish wish wish there was a Claire Pettibone outlet so I could try one on then bid on a second hand dress website for one!

 

Renee, that’s great that you found one over here, I’ve been looking at Brides on Thorndon but again, the prices are so over inflated! Which designer did you end up with, or is it a secret ๐Ÿ˜‰
