Wedding dress shopping should be one of the most joyful parts of planning your big day. But where do you even start?! As a newly-engaged bride-to-be, the overwhelm can be real. Much like finding your soulmate, sourcing your dream wedding dress can feel like a never-ending and sometimes impossible quest. 

And right before you’re about to throw in the towel and sob that you’ll just walk down the aisle in a potato sack, you find The One. There’s something about that serendipitous moment when you first try on your wedding dress. Maybe it’s the first cab off the rank. Maybe it’s the 67th. But when you walk out to show your besties and look at your reflection in the mirror, you just know you’ve found a keeper. It’s a feeling deep in your gut, much like falling in love! 

As you prepare to embark on your mission, you’re probably wondering where the best wedding dress shops in Sydney are. Thankfully, our Emerald City is packed with amazing bridal boutiques to cater to every vision, style and price point. So brides-to-be, here’s your guide to the best wedding dress shops in Sydney.

With boutiques throughout Australia and London, their Sydney HQ stocks a huge range of MWL dresses and their attentive staff will make you feel like the beautiful bride that you are (champers of course included, if that’s your jam). Another win? They offer rush orders on their dresses if you’re planning your wedding with a tight turnaround.

Marry Me Bridal in Mosman is a mecca for all things wedding dresses, stocking divine designs from leading international designers in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and beyond.

We also love the fact the boutique aims to offer a more inclusive range of sizes, catering for brides from size 6-24. They also sell a huge range of chic veils, jackets, headpieces, belts and bridal jewellery to complete your wedding day look. 

Sitchu Tip: Keep an eye on their website where they often announce unmissable sample sales, where you can nab yourself a designer wedding dress for a total steal.

Lilia Cass Ceremonial 

One of the sad things about wedding dresses is the cost-per-wear conundrum. You fall in love with your gown, only to wear it once! That’s where Lilia Cass Ceremonial comes into the equation, with the bridal brand’s beautiful and minimal looks made to wear for a lifetime. They’re not just one-and-done creations! Eco-conscious, sustainable and thoughtfully designed, we especially love the understated wedding blouses that can be worn over your dress and then restyled with other pieces in your wardrobe.
