Ask Ms Polka – Bridesmaid Dress Shops In Melbourne

Polka Dot Bride


Dear Ms Polka Dot,

I need advice!   My maid of honour is coming over from New Zealand and she and my other bridesmaid and I are heading out bridesmaid shopping.  The problem is I’m struggling to find a place to go!  Our budget is $2-300 for floor-length navy dresses, and I would prefer going to one place with a wide variety rather than having to go from one place to another, as we have limited time.  I’ve been scouring the internet to find “the place” and have ended up completely uninspired.  I’m looking for something a little-bit-vintage, little-bit-classic, with straps or sleeves … the only stores I’m finding are so “bridesmaidy” whereas I want something a bit more special.  I feel I’m looking for something that doesn’t exist!

Hello dear Dottie!

Here’s my suggestion for bridesmaid shopping in Melbourne with wide variety!

    I bought my dresses from Duchess Boutique on Sydney Road in Brunswick.

    Amazing selection and very affordable. I had four bridesmaids, size 2, 8, 10, 22 and they were able to find me the perfect dress to match all body shapes. Ladies were professional and dresses arrived on time and exactly as ordered.

    Highly recommend.

      My bridesmaids and I went all over Melbourne to find dresses. I was thrilled to finally find the most beautiful store, Duchess Boutique on Sydney Road in Brunswick. They have amazing dresses, many options and catered for my bridesmaids who were all different sizes. Very professional, affordable and not worth the hassle of making. Many of my friends have also now purchased, hassle free.

    I would like to strongly advise purchasing a dress through Primrose and Finch. They have closed in Melbourne, without notice. Sources tell me that they owe money to Landlords, workers and dress designers.

    I paid $2300.00 for a deposit on my Wedding dress. They never sent this money to my designer!!!

    I’m in the process of getting lawyers to assist with my refund, as my dress is not going to be made!!
