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

Terms and conditions apply

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!

Mother of the Groom: Silk Jacket

We’re often asked whether we make garments that aren’t gowns, and the answer is, yes we do! Our client had purchased this beautiful silk to match the underlay of her dress, and together we created this lovely dress jacket. This is one stylish Mum, and such a pleasure to work with! She’s delighted with how it turned out, and she looks absolutely stunning in it. 

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!
