THE INFO YOU NEED
I'm getting married! When should I start looking for my wedding dres
Most designers need 3-6 months to create your dream dress, so to avoid feeling stressed out, we recommend you begin dress shopping 9-12 months before your big day, this allows enough time for alterations if needed.
Getting married sooner that that? Don’t stress, most designers offer a rush service, but fees do apply.
So, do I need an appointment or can I just rock up?
We love to give our brides the experience they deserve, this means an appointment is necessary. If you happen to stumble across us, we will do our best to find an appointment for you that day.
How long will my appointment go for?
We offer 3 different appointment styles so that we can really get stuck into the nitty gritty!
Looking for the gown of your dreams?
Get ready girlfriend, your appointment goes for 1 hour, we can’t wait to show you our favourites!
My dress is sorted, what about accessories?
Aren’t you in luck, we’ve got 30 wonderful minutes to go through our favourite hand-beaded veils, crowns/headpieces, jewellery, footwear and saucy lingerie!
What about my bridesmaids?
Bring your girls to a 45 minute appointment, have some fun and find a dress that suits every size and style!
Can I bring a small village?
Although we love a good party, we are a cute little boutique with limited seating, so encourage our brides to stick to a party of 4, including the bride. We find that with opinions, unlike chocolate, less is more and having the opinion of a trusted few will help you come to your decision a lot easier.
Should I be bringing anything with me?
You might find it handy to bring a good strapless bra to keep the girls up, and if you’re feeling it, some shapewear. Anything you plan on wearing on your special day really.
We do ask however, that you refrain from wearing fake tan or heavy makeup when trying on our dresses, as we are all too familiar with that dreaded orange mark on the neckline of a gorgeous dress 🙁
Can I get my bestie to take a photo of me in my favourites??
Yes, but only because we know you’re going to do it anyway! Just please refrain from putting the pics on social media an sharing with too many peeps.
So, what kind of dollars are we talking?
We are kind of a mixed kettle of fish here when it comes to prices. We have gorgeous separates that sit between $300-$1,500 and absolute stunners that reach heights of $9,000 with our core range sitting between $2,500-$4,000.
I've found the perfect dress! Now what??
CONGRATULATIONS!! We will now measure you up, down and around so that our designers can make your gown as close as possible to your current size.
You will be required to pay 50% up front and the remaining 50% once your dress has arrived in store.
Oooo, it's just not tight enough here, and just a little long there, what do I do??
Never fear beautiful child, we can help you with that too! Most made to order gowns will require some form of nip and tuck as they are made to your closest size and as we know, no two bodies are made the same.
When you come to pick up your gown, we will unleash Helen, a professional seamstress to give you a free alteration consultation. This will help you understand what you may need done on your dress and how much it may cost to do so. It is then up to you whether you choose to go to Helen for your alterations or source another seamstress or just wing it!
What on earth is a trunk show?
Our stylists at Amante have handpicked their faves from each designer to feature in our boutique at all times, a trunk show only lasts a couple of days and allows us to house the ENTIRE RANGE!! Yes, there will be treats. Yes, there will be discounts and yes, there will be dancing. This means that appointments fills up FAST, so keep an eye out on our ‘Trunk Shows’ page for updates!
One last thing, where do I park??
Amante is a street front store, so there is plenty of one hours parks available directly out front, but sometimes you might have to fight the locals for a spot and may even have to park around the corner in Maccas (any excuse for a cheeky cheeseburger right?)
