Is your dress quality good?

Joy's Bridal Collection is completely Australian owned and operated online store based in Melbourne. We have coupled up with experienced dressmakers and fabric suppliers across the world and are committed to deliver a great quality which we are proud of. We make sure our quality is never compromised by carefully picking the right material and inspecting the factories and production lines. We will never sell a dress that is defective or sneaky in the materials.

Why is your wedding dress so cheap?

Joy's Bridal Collection is an online store, which saves enourmous overhead cost compared to a traditional shop front. With cutting down the cost in renting, shop fittings, out goings and labours, the pricing pressure is also released from our customers. Imagine if you buy a wedding gown in a traditional shop front but 60% goes to the store overhead, why not spend only 40% buying an exactly same gown online?

Can I try on the dress?

Yes! You can visit our home studio located in Burwood, Melbourne. We always have some sample dresses in stock. Although we might not have the exact size on the day that fits you, you are welcome to inspect the quality and pick the style you like! When you place an order, the dresse will be tailor made to your size. Please make sure you contact us before paying a visit.

Will the dress fit me correctly?

Yes. Your dress will be tailor made exactly to your measurements. We suggest you go through Custom Made - Fitting Guide to obtain an accurate measurement. The size will be customized specifically to your bust, waist, hip and height. In addition, most of our dresses have a corset (lace-up) design in the back. You can always loosen up or tighten a bit if your weight slightly changes before your big day.

What if I'm not happy with the dress?

At Joy's Bridal Collection, we’re committed to ensuring all our customers receive high quality dresses and great customer service. Our dresses are made specifically to the measurements you provide (bust, waist, hips, and height). That means no one else will be able to wear that dress once it's made. Because of this, we are unable to accept any returns or exchanges on custom dresses. Therefore, we strongly recommend you look at our Fitting Guide to obtain the most accurate measurement. However, if the dress you received has major fault or not as described, please contact our customer service with your invoice number, photos and a detailed explanation within 7 days of receiving the item. We will work out the best solution for you.

Each image on our website is taken using the actual gown. Our photos are 100% original and true with exclusive copyright only at Joy's Bridal Collection. We guarantee you will receive the exactly same product as shown in the picture.

Will I need alterations?

No. Your dress will be tailor made to suit the measurements you provide. Save your money in alteration!
