The Amante Experience

We seek to make your experience with Amante every magical thing you’ve imagined and so much more!

Many designers need 4-6 months to create your dream dress, so we recommend you begin looking 9-12 months before your big day to allow time for alterations.

If you’re getting married sooner than that, please don’t stress; most designers offer a rush service, but fees may apply.

Below is some insight into the “Amante Experience” – read away and contact us if we can help out with any questions or head to our FAQs x

YOUR FIRST VISIT

We’re ready to be your wedding gown matchmakers!

Let’s Look Around!
You might come in with a few ideas of what you love, or you might want us to choose a few of our favourites! Either way, we’re excited to show you our treasures.

Bring a friend
We’re a cute little boutique with enough seating for you and your 3 closest peeps.

Appointment Fee
Please note, there is a $25 booking fee. This is purely in place to avoid “no shows” that often mean other brides miss out on an appointment and help maintain the quality of our samples. This fee is redeemable against the purchase of your gown!

What to bring
You might find it handy to bring a good strapless bra and if you’re feeling it, some shapewear – anything you plan on wearing on your special day.

We do ask that you refrain from wearing fake tan or heavy makeup when trying on our dresses,
as we’re all too familiar with that dreaded orange mark on the neckline of a gorgeous gown 🙁

SUBSEQUENT APPOINTMENTS

Need to try your faves again? And maybe even some accessories?!

Loved my visit to Amante. I had the amazing Tegan helping me – she made me feel super comfortable and helped me try on a range of dresses that I loved. They have an awesome mix of brands. I’m a curvier girl, and they had an awesome selection of dresses with sample sizes I could try on properly.

Tegan was amazing in helping me find my perfect dress. We went to one of the boutiques in Melbourne and after trying on at least ten dresses, I left feeling disappointed.  We decided to go home, but before giving up, we called Amante and they said they could squeeze us in. It was a whole other experience to the shop in Melbourne where there were at least five other brides trying on dresses, to Amante, where it was just me. It made the experience so much more enjoyable. I just wanted to say thank you again for helping me find my perfect dress, it was everything I wanted, and you made the process so fun and I didn’t have to stress once about anything.

THE INFO YOU NEED
TO KNOW

I'm getting married! When should I start looking for my wedding dress?

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 several 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 45 minutes, 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 and jewellery! This can be done at your second appointment if you are coming in to try on your beautiful favourites again!

I’m ready to order!

Congratulations! We offer a 30 minute appointment to order your dream gown, you can try her on again, fall head over heels in love with her all over again and get your contracts etc. sorted!

My gown has arrived!!!!

This is one of our most favourite appointments! We will contact you to arrange a time to come in and pick up your gorgeous gown.

 

Can I bring a small village?

Although we love a good party, we’re a cute little boutique with limited seating and don’t have the space for everyone on your guest list! We do however, have enough comfy seating for you and 3 of your favs! 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 🙁

Please note that all brides and guests will be required under the current restrictions to wear a mask throughout the entire appointment – so BYO mask! x

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! We work a little differently here at Amante Bridal-  snapped a cute shot of the boutique? Share away! Just make sure to tag us! 

We also don’t mind selfies being shared, please just be mindful of the bride and which gown she is choosing, we don’t want ‘The One’ ending up on socials!

COVID-19 - What does that mean for us?!

It is certainly a crazy time in the world, and the bridal world is certainly not exempt from that! We want everything to run as ‘normal’ as possible for you but we do just have some changes…

  • The guest limit is yourself plus 4 guests – we ask that you please stick to this one, we don’t want to turn anyone away!
  • No masks are required in the boutique.
  • Hand santitiser will be available and we ask that brides and guests try to limit touching. We LOVE you guys getting in and digging for a gown, but at the moment we just need to keep that to a minimum. There will certainly be a chance to have a look through, but your stylist will run you through all of this during your appointment!
  • Stay positive, ask as many questions as you need and make the most out of this crazy time- want a cute selfie in the boutique? We will even help you out and take it!

 

So, what kind of dollars are we talking?

We are kind of a mixed kettle of fish here when it comes to prices, with gowns starting from $2000, but our core range of dresses sit between $2899-$3200 on average 

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?)
