Read about our real brides and how they found their wedding dress at Eleganza Sposa.

I don't think I can put into words how amazing an experience I had at Eleganza Sposa. I had booked in for the Martina Liana Trunk Show around 18 months before my wedding for my first wedding dress shopping trip. As it was quite a while before the big day, I thought it would be the start of a long process of trying to find the dream dress, but I was so wrong. I tried on the first gown, not convinced it was what I imagined to be wearing on my big day but fell in love instantly. It was the first and only dress I tried on, I bought it there and then. The service each time I've visited Eleganza Sposa was just fantastic. During each fitting the girls were all so lovely and accommodating, so I'm delighted to have been an Eleganza bride!

What can I say from finding my dream dress to collecting it for my big day you were fabulous. I dealt with many different stylists during my appointments and you were all wonderful. Everyone I dealt with truly is a stylist and not a 'sales' assistant as I had experienced in other boutiques. A special thank you to Angela as she helped me find my incredible Martina Liana dress. Your boutique itself is incredible beautiful and you are made to feel so special at every appointment. I am so glad I was an Eleganza Bride after all in my opinion they are the best ones!! Thank you

From the moment I set eyes on my dress I fell in love with it. I had always imagined I'd be in ivory but the blush colour of this dress was beautiful. This was the first dress I tried on in Eleganza and I didn't need to try on anymore. Trying it on for the first time was such a special moment but the beautiful settings in Eleganza really added to the experience along with the enthusiasm of the lovely assistants. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the dress was and how unique it was with the colour. My husband was blown away with it.

What an experience I had choosing my dream dress. The Eleganza girls were absolutely fabulous. I felt like a celebrity every time I went in. I wanted my dress to look classy and fresh but bridey at the same time and the girls knew exactly how to make that happen. I felt like a movie star and had the day of my life! Thank you Girls! Jill…You are an angel

Thank you for the amazing Eleganza gown I wore for my wedding - it is so beautiful and I felt incredible on the day...... My veil finished everything off beautifully. Thank you to all the girls at Eleganza, especially Jill who went above and beyond when helping me chose my dress, to the fitting and the overall experience. I will never be able to thank her enough for that!!

I absolutely loved my dress from Eleganza! I had a very detailed idea of what I wanted but found it hard to find. I was so happy that when I went to Eleganza they gave me the option of having a body suit and skirt attached and it was perfect! The process from choosing my dress to picking it up was brilliant. The staff are really friendly and helpful. I had and am still getting so many compliments on my dress!

We had the most perfect wedding day in New York City! I felt so comfortable in my Essence of Australia dress. I had ordered extra lace and got straps made and added on as I didn't feel comfortable in a strapless dress. Although very hot on the day I was extremely happy in my beautiful dress. Everyone has commented on how stunning it was. I'm so glad I went for the blush colour as it just made it slightly different. My veil was also from Eleganza and when the sun shone it brought out the slight diamante detail through it. Lisa at Eleganza who helped me choose my dress was so helpful and lovely. Thank you for all your help and making me feel amazing in on my wedding day.

Samin wearing Essense of Australia

Years ago when I attended school, I would always pass by the shop on the bus to school and always say to myself that one day I think I will buy my dress from that shop. Not knowing that what was once just a thought and a simple daydream, would one day be reality.   Eleganza was the second shop that I visited when I was dress shopping. This was the first day I was trying dresses. My experience at Eleganza was positive from the minute I walked in. After trying on a few dresses, I immediately had a magical feeling in this one dress by Essense of Australia. Due to my mums positive and emotional reaction and the way I felt in the dress, I decided to say yes to the dress.   We decided to have our wedding in Sri Lanka due to a visit we had prior to the wedding and we fell in love with the hotel we stayed at. Also, as we are both Iranian born, we had family fly over from Iran to join us on our special day. Below is a some words from my photographer:   “In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” – Rumi Unsurprising fact: intimate weddings are our absolute favorite. Complete with a small guest list, an elegant outdoor ceremony, and one stylish couple this wedding was nothing short of idyllic. Samin & Farzin, the epitome of style and grace, dreamed of a wedding infused with plenty of lush blooms, perfectly saturated hues of grey and blush, and of course endless love. The outdoor Persian wedding ceremony was infused with both style and heritage, but one tender detail that stood out was that instead of going for the traditional Koran blessing they opted to seal their love with the timeless words of Persian poet Rumi. Samin’s dress, designed by Essense of Australia (and not available in stores until 2017, in case you were wondering!) was luxuriously detailed and cut in a romantic silhouette, making the gorgeous bride seem like she stepped right out of a fairy tale. The chic dresses worn by the bridesmaids , the elegant accents of white and gold and light from the crystal chandeliers only added to the sophistication of the night. Awash with the most perfect of details, made more beautiful by the dusky skies Samin & Farzin celebrated their love for each other as they danced the night away. So, here’s to Samin & Farzin. Wishing you joy and giddying love now and in the years to come."
