Can I change my wedding dress colour?

Most of our unique wedding gowns come in off-white colours, including options such as blush, pink, purple, blue, peach, green, floral, ivory, champagne, and other hues. We can easily handcraft your dream wedding dress in white by changing the lining or the main fabric; most of our gowns offer both a white colour variation and a colourful option.

Can I do design modification to my favourite bridal dress?

We would be delighted to accommodate modest design modifications to your bridal dress, such as closing or adding a skirt split, changing the sleeve and strap design, adding lining to the dress, or handcrafting an overskirt for the dress. However, we do not recommend introducing a new neckline, wedding dress silhouette, or other significant modifications. We do not offer individual designs from wedding dress sketches.

Will I require alterations?

If you require alterations once the dress arrives, we refer you to our trusted bridal alterations partners who specialise in bridal alterations and have been serving brides for more than 20 years

What sizes of gowns do you sell?

We will be delighted to handmake your dream wedding dress in any size between NZ 6 and NZ 36. We take great care of each of our brides and are always happy to recommend design improvements for each size, ensuring a bride feels and looks amazing on her wedding day. Most of our wedding dress samples are presented in NZ 8 to NZ 18 sizes at our bridal boutique on Level 1, 27 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby, Auckland, New Zealand

What dress sizes are available for trying on in your boutique?

We have a huge range of beautiful dresses available for you to try on, which will give you an idea of the style and designs that fit you best. Most of our sizes are NZ 8 to NZ 18, and will be fitted to your figure using different clips and extensions so that you can see the style. Our sample gowns demonstrate the quality of our fabrics, and the designer’s imagination, creativity and innovation. Once you choose your favourite style, you can order any dress that is available on our website. We also have veils, bridal lingerie and other accessories to complete your look.

How long will it take to create my wedding gown?

It usually takes us about 6 to 7 months for your favourite wedding dress to be handmade and delivered from Europe to New Zealand. If you have less than 6 months we can definitely assist you with the rush order option and make sure your bridal dress arrives on time for your wedding day. We are also delighted to offer you our gorgeous sample sale range with the gowns that are already in New Zealand.

Can you do rush orders?

Yes, we can process rush orders! These orders do have additional costs, so please contact Dell’Amore Bridal to discuss your options. 

Are all your gowns handmade?

Yes. Your wedding dress will be handmade using high quality fabrics like chiffon, mikado, French satin and lace supplied from all over the world. Dress decorations are handcrafted from different jewellery stones, crystals, dried flowers, clay, sea shells, pearl glass and French beads, before being carefully sewn onto your dress.

What happens if I loose some weight after placing my order?

Often, a bride loses some weight before the wedding day. The first thing is definitely to stop worrying and know that you will look great on your special day. Most of our wedding dresses come with a corset that ensures a perfect fit. Our experienced alteration partners can also tailor your gown to make sure it fits you like a glove. Additionally, our bridal stylist will share other tips and tricks with you when you collect your gown.
