aussie_25:  a lot of american companies do not ship to Australia. It might be because of shipping costs and it might be because of trade agreements. 

You can get round it by using a forwarding company. Basically they give you an address to get the company you are buying from to ship to and then they forward it onto you in Australia. they will even store your stuff for a certain amount of time if you are buying from multiple stores.

1.) It would probably cost almost as much as the dress itself to ship there.

2.) Australia has very strict packaging restrictions. Basically you need to make sure your materials aren’t plant based or have ever touched a plant. Recylced/biodegradable materials have to be specially heat treated to even be considered.

Hey Aussie.. If they ship to UK I’m happy for you to use my address and if you pay the postage I would forward it on to you?

aussie_25:  Really? It’s crazy to me that Australia wouldn’t have as much selection as David’s Bridal, which (from what I gather) is pretty much considered the most basic of basic around here!

I bought a dress from david’s bridal and used Shipito. I’ve used them multiple times, no problems! I’m based in Perth.

aussie_25:  I bought a dress in their $99 sale and spent about $250 having it altered. It’s gorgeous, and the seamstress said it was one of the best gowns she’s altered in a while. Beautiful thick layers of satin. ABSOLUTELY worth it.

I know this is old – but I googled this same enquiry and here I am.

I am planning on using shopfans.com to redirect (I have used them before to Brisbane and they are great) so just wanted to leave that here for any other aussies trying to get stuff from David’s bridal ๐Ÿ™‚
