SL: What made you start Savvy Brides? MD: As a bride to be I was keen to buy a pre-loved dress. I knew the designer I liked but her dresses were just so pricey. I thought the perfect solution would be to find one of her gowns that has been worn once. These gowns tended to be nearly half the price and had only been worn for a few hours. I went on what felt like an endless search. At that time the only way to buy a pre-loved dress was to find a seller online and visit their home to try on the dress. It was so time consuming to travel to see one dress. It was during this process that I decided to create Savvy Brides - a place where numerous gorgeous gowns would be available at one beautiful destination for brides.
SL: What size and price range are your gowns? MD: We have dresses ranging from size 6-16. The dresses vary in price, giving the brides the option as much or as little as their budget allows. Our dresses tend to be priced at 30-50% less than the original price and start from $1000. We have a big range of Australian labels and some dresses by International designers. You can also register advising the exact description of what you are looking for and we can also try and find the dress for you.
We wish Mandy & Jonathan all their marriage & careers - some exciting roads ahead! If you would like to see more of their wedding (which is simply gorgeous) held at Killcare on the NSW Central Coast grab the upcoming June issue of Real Weddings Magazine x
