When Steph visited our studio she was feeling completely overwhelmed by her wedding dress options. She had always wanted a tea length wedding dress but was struggling to find any at the ‘off-the-rack’ bridal shops in Perth. We had a chat and went through all of her options. Ultimately, she wanted a dress that she would feel comfortable in and that would be flattering.
Let me tell you, a tea length wedding dress is one of the most flattering designs a bride could ask for. Here are five reasons why-
When Steph picked up her tea length wedding dress, there was no other dress I could have imagined her in, it suited her personality and figure perfectly. She even had pockets in her dress so she was stoked! Nathan & Steph were married by the river in South Perth before heading to the Old Swan Brewery. I just love these photos of Steph twirling and that big grin she has in each photo.

It is a gown that is available to purchase as is with no changes, sometimes you have the option of adding length. An ‘off-the-rack’ bridal store will take your measurements and then order the gown in the size closest to your measurements. ‘Off-the-rack’ gowns are usually purchased somewhere between 6 months to 18 months before your wedding, when the gown arrives (sometimes as close as one month before your wedding) you will then need to organise alterations so the gown fits you. Alterations are an additional cost which can range from $500 to $1,500.
Deva opted for a custom wedding dress after looking at a few dress shops in Perth and even travelling to Melbourne to see what was available. Deva was after a wedding dress with sleeves which can be hard to find ‘off-the-rack’.
When we met with Deva we designed a custom wedding dress with a soft tulle skirt that was light and easy to move around in, we then sourced a unique lace for Deva’s bodice with lace sleeves ensuring this was a one-off design!
Deva and Alex were all smiles on their wedding day, with the odd tear during their heartfelt ceremony. They married at the Sunken Gardens at UWA before moving on to Perth City Farm, where I believe they partied on until the wee hours.
