Brides Choice Award Winners!

Riverside Gowns Brides Choice Award Winner for Bridal Couture - Blog Header Image

We won!

It happened! We’re still in shock. We were so humbled to have been nominated for this award, and we never really expected our small business would be the winner. There were much bigger businesses in the running, and we know there’s some great competition out there (lucky brides!), but we did it! We’re so happy that our brides love our designs and service so much that we were voted number 1 for Bridal Couture.

Our sincerest thanks go out to Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges Weddings for hosting the event, and all the brides who voted for us. This means a lot to us, and we will continue to strive for better and better service whilst producing gowns custom-made to suit the vision of each bride. Wow. Here’s to 2017!

Baby & Bride-to-be: Custom Made Maternity Wedding Gown

Celebrating a beautiful couple and their growing family.

We recently had the joy of making our very first maternity wedding gown.

Our client came to us for a custom-made wedding gown which could accommodate her growing baby bump while remaining stylish, feminine, and utterly gorgeous. With the help of our dressmaker’s extensive skill and experience, we achieved our client’s dream.

The skirt was given extra length to accommodate growth, and was designed to flow gently over the waist. Attention was drawn to the top of the dress by incorporating the (absolutely adorable) lace top with button-up back.

We were so delighted to receive these photos of her on her big day, and for the time taken to leave us this review:

“River & her team are absolutely amazing… Not only was I a difficult pregnant bride but I also didn’t give River much time to make my amazing dress! But as always they nailed it & it was so perfect… I cannot recommend or speak highly enough of Riverside gowns, they are truly amazing! Nothing was too hard & River was great to work with. Thank you so so much again xx” – Emma

Thank you! We couldn’t be more proud.

Our Latest Expo

           

Karralyka: Sunday, 17 July 2016

It’s been a busy week for us at Riverside Gowns!

Last Sunday we attended the Yarra & Dandenong Ranges expo at the Karralyka Centre in Ringwood. The weather was kind enough to offer a little sunshine, and a band was playing at the entrance. With so many beautiful exhibits to visit, we’re certain the guests were greateful for the caffeine boost available from the little coffee van out the front!

We were delighted to meet so many brides-to-be, and very excited to announce our three lucky door prize winners.

Our first prize winner will receive a huge $500.00 off our incredible Bridal Package Deal, meaning she no longer has to worry about finding the perfect bridal gown or bridesmaid dresses; we’re going to create them for her from scratch!

Needless to say, all of our winners were very happy with their prizes.
