Upcoming Expo @ Potters Receptions

Wedding Bridal Expo at Potters Receptions

Farewell, 2016.

Looking back, we’ve had such a busy and rewarding year. From exhibiting at various bridal expo’s, to winning the Brides Choice Award for Bridal Couture, and organising our upcoming feature in Wedding & Bride magazine, time has simply flown and we’ve loved every minute of it.

Now looking forward, we’ve already planned our first event. We’ll be exhibiting at Potters Receptions Wedding Expo for the very first time on Wednesday, 22 February 2017. We’re incredibly excited to be part of such an intimate, local event. We’ll be giving away a HUGE discount on our Bridal Package Deal which has recently been updated to include four bridesmaid dresses in additional to the bridal gown; all 100% custom-made. Since there are several definitions of custom made (depending on who you ask), you can find our definition right here: ‘When We Say Custom-Made’

We look forward to seeing you all there and wish you a truly blissful start to 2017.

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!

Bridal Package Deal: x1 Wedding Gown x3 Bridesmaid dresses x2 Fitting and alteration sessions, each

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

We’d like to thank everyone who attended for such a fantastic day. For anyone who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you at the next one!

Rachelle & Luke’s Beach Wedding

Rachelle was off to a rocky start finding her wedding gown. On two occasions, Rachelle thought she had found ‘the dress’ but each time fate intervened. It simply wasn’t to be. Disappointed, Rachelle decided to forgo the bridal shops and have her dress custom-made with us at Riverside Gowns.

Being a beach wedding, the style was semi-formal. The gorgeous bride opted for this popular mermaid-style gown with sweetheart neckline and mid-length train. The lace overlay is detailed and divine, and one of our favourites to work with.

We were truly honoured to attend Rachelle’s wedding and see her sparkle in this gown.Dress&Group_Combo_01Mar2016

Jasmine’s Vintage Pink Gown for a Garden Wedding

One of the best parts of creating custom made gowns is seeing them on the brides big day. This is Jasmine, she came to us last year to help her create her perfect gown for a vintage inspired garden wedding. One of my favourite parts of this gown is the interesting ankle length, perfect for walking in the garden with the added benefit of being very cute. Jasmine’s wedding is gown features a french fine lace bodice combined with antique rose pink satin and colour matching tulle skirt.

Jasmine pulled of this vintage look perfectly and we would like to wish Jasmine and Luke a big congratulations from Riverside Gowns!
