For our out of town clients, we offer a unique two appointment service. The first appointment will consist of the design of your gown and also the calico fitting. At the second and final appointment, the gown will be fitted, final alterations are made and hems are finalised. While you enjoy shopping and lunching in Papamoa, these alterations are completed and the gown is ready to be picked up.
For our overseas brides, we can offer a 30 hour service from the design to pick up.
For bridesmaids who are travelling from overseas, we offer an express six hour service, from calico to gown pick up.
