I am getting married in the U.S, but I live in Brisbane. Can anyone recommend some dress shops? I am trying to get a dress on the lower end under $1000. I know prices are much higher here. Has anyone ordered from overseas and just had it fitted here? Any ideas are welcome:)

I went to Casar elegance which did have at least one dress for $1000 (don’t know any other prices, sorry), and brides of Brisbane (so beautiful, but out of my price range – but they do have a sale section). There was a cheaper shop in the same building but the dresses werent to my taste. might be worth going to to see what shapes suit you though, they have lts of choice. I got my dress from Bibowden – a Brisbane based designer. I dont know if they have a physical shop but i paid $299 for a sample marked down from $1000. What kind of styles are you interested in?

I’ve heard Zimo (who I think it based in the US) does very good designs, if you send him the picture of the dress he will make it for you. You should search ‘Zimo’ on Wedding Bee because quite a few bees have used and highly recommend him.

We have sweet FA up here where I am, but 2 franchises/chains etc that should be around Brissie – Hills in Hollywood, or look up store locations for BellaDonna Gowns. They’d have a range of prices. Otherwise if you like a certain designer (eg Allure or whatever) then I’d just google to see the nearest Aussie location

Bella Donna at woolloongabba has some great affordable dresses. I got mine there for $1150. Their service was fantastic and I would highly recommend them 🙂

Yes!!! in Morayfield there is a lady who sells dresses from her…wait for it…. garage!
They are all brand new and super cheap because she gets overseas gowns as well as old stock from bridal stores.
I got my gorgeous dress from her and it cost me waaay under 1000 for a brand new dress ($200) to be exact. And when I took it to my dressmaker she couldn’t believe it, she said the lace in the dress alone is worth much more.
check out her FB page.

Thank you! I thought the Bibowden site looked really good. I just want something simple/sleek. I sure like a deal. That lady in Morayfeild doesn’t look half bad:) Now I just need to drop a bit more weight to have the guts to go try some on.
Thanks for all the help.

I went to the woman in Morayfield Exquisite Gowns by Yvonne. I really liked it:) I haven’t decided on one yet, but I will deinitely be back to look again. Amazing prices, and the dresses are all really good.
