Wow, I think I'm still on an emotional high from earlier this morning when I said 'yes to the dress' from Idora Bridal! Stella, Samantha and the team were so lovely and provided exceptional service. I love that all alterations are included in the price of the dress - no matter how extensive. Idora is such a unique bridal service and they make you feel so special. I cannot wait to see my dream dress be created in the coming months. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

I bought my wedding dress on Thursday after visiting the store on Saturday and the service and professionalism was amazing! Stella and the ladies were so helpful and accommodating with all my requests. They made me feel so special and even though the shop was busy, I did not feel rushed in any way. This was the only bridal store I visited and after my first visit, I realised I didn't need to go anywhere else. I highly recommend this store as the place to go for your wedding dress.

When my fiancé and I decided on a wedding date only a month and a half away, my biggest concern was finding a dress in such a short time. Stella and the ladies were helping me choose a style and fit that were just right for me within minutes of walking into the store. The personal attention made the entire process very enjoyable and stressfree. Quality and customer satisfaction are the emphasis here-and the dresses are gorgeous!

I purchased a wedding dress from Idora Bridal a year before my wedding day and about 6 months later I started to have second thoughts about it. Stella and her team were very patient and helped me find exactly what I was looking for and were able to give me the true dress of my dreams. They were absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to wear that dress on my wedding day. Their passion for making brides feel beautiful and giving them a variety of options in custom design is truly commendable. Thank you for everything Idora Bridal. I will be forever grateful.

I came across Idora Bridal whilst visiting other bridal stores on the same day. As my bridesmaids and I entered the shop we were greeted with a smile. The shop assistant was asking me what style I was after and was then assisting me in trying on dresses that best matched the description. I immediately fell in love with one of the dresses and came back a week later to purchase the dress. The staff were friendly, professional and catered to what I wanted. I am currently in the process of having my dress made and I am very excited to see the final product. I have had a wonderful experience so far and feel like a valued customer. I highly recommend Idora Bridal to all brides. The quality of the dresses, the uniqueness in the styles and the wonderful customer service equate to a memorable and positive experience. Thank you!

As soon as I stepped into the store I was greeted by the lovely sales assistant, after giving her a quick description of the the dress I had in mind she was able to point me towards the right direction. It's very convenient that they make made to measure and custom design dresses so they helped me create my dream wedding dress! I highly recommend this store to every soon-to-be bride, especially those who like me, are finding it difficult to find what they have in mind in stores. Overall, the service was of high standard. I can't wait to see the final result of my dress! :)

Wanted to say a big THANK YOU!!! to the team at Idora Bridal. I'm so happy that I found my perfect wedding dress last weekend. All the ladies made the experience stress free and easy from start to finish. I would highly recommend Idora Bridal for your perfect wedding dress, as all dresses have that special touch and very unique styles. Can't wait for my fitting/alteration next year. Thank you so much again for the great service A++++++.

I was bit skeptical prior to my appointment. I had already visited nearly 10 different dress shops in the Greater Sydney area. The staff was very welcoming, and encouraged me to be open-minded and try different styles. It is so hard NOT to find the perfect dress at Idora because they are very flexible to suit your needs.

With only 4 months to my wedding, Stella, Dee, Sana and the amazing team at Idora Bridal took me under their wings and created the most beautiful gown I have ever seen! Their professionalism was one that surpassed anyone else's in the industry and their commitment to producing a flawless dress was seen in the final product. Right until the final pick up, the ladies ensured everything was perfect - from making sure I had the perfect veil, tiara and earrings to match - they truly made me feel like royalty. Now, my biggest regret is that I won't be able to wear my dress again, or create another bridal gown with them... But the ladies have become my first point of call for formal wear. Cannot thank them enough for having met, and far surpassed my expectations. Would recommend this organisation in a heartbeat. Love you ladies xx

Idora bridal was a saviour on our unsuccessful day of wedding dress shopping. After a bad run of terrible service and lack of choice from other shops, stella and the team at Idora were a breath of fresh air!! The most warming and welcoming service on a such an important occasion. I tried on many dresses all with the help of staff , who helped me through the process of finding the right one! I would highly recommend Idora bridal and the staff there to anyone who would like to experience , finding a dress such a memorable one. What a great business with a fantastic sense of professionalism. Thank you Idora bridal and the friendly team for assisting in finding my amazing dress!! All the best!

The girls at Idora Bridal are truly amazing! Stella was extremely helpful in designing my wedding dress and assisted me when i was constantly changing my mind on the design. The shop closes at 4pm and Stella and the girls didnt hesitate to stay back until 5pm with a smile to sketch my dress and help me with certain design aspects of the dress. Their service is definately above and beyond ! I am currently in the process of designing my custom made dress and i cannot wait to see the final product, i have no doubt that it will be amazing. Highly recommended ! All the girls are extremely professional and their service is beyond expectations. Stella has made designing my own dress stress free and i would recommend Idora Bridal to all bride to be's! Thank you Idora Bridal for making my vision come to life!

I have nothing but great things to say about Stella the team at Idora Bridal! My initial appointment with Stella and Sana was so stress free, I was met with such kind hearted and wonderful staff, full of suggestions and all with a caring nature and the want to make my dress as perfect as I could imagine. After leaving a deposit, my dress was on its way through the stages of being made....only to suddenly have a change of mind half way through!! After working up the courage to give Stella a call and explain my situation, I was relieved to hear that I could make an appointment to go over what changes I may have in mind. I was so surprised with Stella's response, nothing was an issue and she assured me that everything would be ok and that we will be able to work something out so that I have the dress I dreamed of. After several phone calls back and forth to the dress makers, Stella came to me with a solution and the amazing news that I was hoping to hear! Words can not describe how wonderful the team is at Idora Bridal, the respect and genuine desire to make your wedding day special is hard to ignore, Stella had tears in her eyes when she saw I was happy with the outcome with my dress. Her words were "it is an honour to be part of your special day and we want nothing more than for you to be absolutely happy". I highly recommend Idora to any future bride. The service is exceptional, the attention to detail is incredible and you truly feel like part of their family. Their dresses are to die for and they have no issues whatsoever in personalising their gowns to suit your idea. Almost 12 months after my initial appointment, Sana and Stella still remembered me by name! I am forever grateful and wish Stella and the team nothing but the best for the future. I am so happy to have them part of my big day.

I went to many bridal shops across Sydney looking for my ideal wedding dress. When I went to Idora bridal the gown were beautiful and the customer service was absolutely outstanding. They were extremely helpful, always catering for all my needs. They altered my dress to perfection and on time with no problems at all. I would strongly recommend Idora Bridal.

purchased an Idora Bridal dress for my upcoming wedding, 2 weeks from now. The experience and service I have received has been amazing, right from walking in on my first day of dress shopping to walking out earlier this week with my perfectly fitting dress. Idora was the first Bridal shop I visited, and after visiting 2 more shops that day, I went back to Idora and bought the very first dress that I tried on. The quality is excellent and the alteration service is outstanding. After an initial fitting, I had every bride's worst nightmare where my dress no longer fit when I tried it on 4 weeks out from my wedding. The staff were so nice when I was panicking and upset about my dress, and sure enough, when I went back, the dress fit perfect and I felt beautiful. The staff were also really helpful when the veil I purchased was a slightly different colour to my dress. They happily exchanged it without any trouble what so ever. I can not wait to wear my dress on my special day. Thank you so much to all the ladies for your help and great work.

I stumbled across Idora Bridal after looking at wedding gowns on the same street and I was very disappointed and had lost hope of finding my perfect dress. As I walking by Idora the dresses through the window caught my eye, as soon as I walked in I was blown away by all the beautiful dresses and was shocked at how many I fell in love with. I am very particular and fussy and Idoras wedding gowns were exactly what I had envisioned for my big day. Elegant, striking, one of a kind dresses. I fell in love instantly with two mermaid gowns with lace and Swarovski crystal detailing. I couldn't have picked a more beautiful dress, it is exactly what I was looking for and from viewing and trying on many bridal gowns in other stores no dresses came close to the beauty, fit and quality of Idora. All the ladies were so kind and helpful, and they went out of their way to make sure I was happy and altered my dress multiple times free of charge until it fit me perfectly. My husband was blown away by my dress and everyone commented on how incredibly beautiful my dress was on the day. If you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day, choose Idora! You won’t be disappointed. :)

Probably the most important part of the wedding day is the actual wedding dress. Your dress should be tight enough to show you are a woman, but loose enough to show you are a lady. And that is exactly what Idora Bridal can do for you. They not only help you to choose your dream dress but also make you feel like a princess. Idora Bridal was the first shop i walked in to on my way to find a perfect dress. There was no need to look for any other as i immediately fell in love with everything they offer. The staff is super helpful, easy-going, patient and always smiling. I could not picture better place to make my dream wedding dress to come true. When i saw the final dress for the first time, i could not believe my eyes. It was simply perfect. I highly recommend every Bride To Be to go and visit this special place. She will definitely be treated the way as every bride deserves. Because there is only one chance to blow the groom away in your wedding dress.Trust me, he will never forget the moment he saw you for the first time in you Idora Bridal wedding dress. Idora Bridal, i wish you all the best. Your Bride Petra xxx

What can I say about Idora Bridal that hasn't already been said. Stella and her team (special mention to Sana) were instumental in helping me not only pick my wedding dress but also in helping me design my bridesmaid dress from scratch which to everyone's delight was a big success. The constant care to keep me updated and infomed as the progress of all my dresses which as a bride to be is not only comforting but also a relief. Thank you again for everything and for making me feel like a true princess.

When I flew down to Sydney just for the weekend from Brisbane and went dress shopping, Idora Bridal was the only store that had dresses that were truly elegant. The ladies were so helpful letting me find the style that suited me, and when I kept going back to the first dress I had tried on.. I knew, with tear in my eyes, that it was the one! I know I got very lucky having booked my first appointment on a big sale day, but it was so worth it. I was able to purchase a dress I could normally only dream of. My dreams came true!

Idora Bridal was the second shop that I walked in to while looking for dresses. My mother and I were immediately welcomed by friendly staff who were happy for us to browse their dresses without making an appointment to try dresses on beforehand. The staff showed knowledge of their dresses and what suited different body shapes. This meant that the staff were really helpful when it came to finding and fitting the perfect dress for me! They were patient and let me take my time in finding the right dress. When I found it, they let me swirl, admire myself, and "ohh" and "ahh" until I was ready to take the dress off. They also provided me with extremely quick, efficient, and cheap alterations which enabled me to collect my dress the the following week - after being told in the other store that I should'nt have left looking for a dress so late (3.5 month turn around from proposal to wedding!). Overall, I could not fault the team at Idora Bridal. Not only did I find an amazing dress that was well within my limited budget but I had a painless experience finding my perfect wedding dress. Now I can't wait to wear it on my big day!

I had the pleasure of dealing with Idora Bridal whilst shopping for my dream dress! After monthsof looking with no success I stumbled accross Idora Bridal in Leichhardt and I can honestly say they were FANTASTIC!! I was no theeasiest customer in the world, I think I changed my mind around 5 or 6 times but nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the girls. They were always so lovely and happy to help or lend advice when I was panicking in the months leading up to my wedding. My dress turned out better than I could have ever dreamed of! I would totally recommend Idora Bridal to anyone looking for that perfect dress!

Two days before the wedding and I have no words to express the gratitude I owe to the beautiful ladies at Idora Bridal in Leichhardt for finding me a dress and working overtime to ensure it fit perfectly within the one week timeframe I needed it ready by! On top of that they matched the price of my original dress lost to liquidators, and included alterations, a veil and a STUNNING diamonte hairpiece as gifts to make up for the awful stress caused by Bridal Vision. No pressure to buy at any point, just calm, professional and caring service - faith in humanity firmly restored!!!!

To all the amazing ladies at IDORA bridal, Thank you all so much for the breathtaking wedding gown and the extraordinary service we received from you.Lynne looked so spectacular on her wedding day. The dress was so comfortable to wear and made her feel like the princess she is. To have two of the lovely ladies join us on the day was just amazing. They helped put on the gown and were so helpful and friendly. With the media on the wedding day it meant almost a full day in her dress and by the end of the evening she was just as radiant and the gown sparkled just as brightly. From the moment we walked into the shop we could not believe how every gown was so beautiful. The collections and styles are endless. The kind helpful staff made the selection process a fun experience. In all dealings with IDORA Bridal we have received amazing customer service from the friendly staff. From choosing the dress, to having cleaned after, the service was complete and perfect. You all have made our special day more memorable and we would gladly recommend you without hesitation to anybody.

Idora Bridal is one of the most amazing bridal boutiques. They made my wedding absolutely amazing by giving me the perfect dress. They took the stress out of finding the ultimate dress for my grand wedding. They were able to give me my dream dresss and if it wasn't for Idora Bridal my journey to finding the perfect dress would have been a disaster. As any bride I visited many bridal shops, however not one was able to provide all the areas of service like Idora Bridal. They greet you with a smile and leave you with a smile which goes a long way during the course of plannng a demanding wedding. The quality of my dress was amazing and all 580 guests at the wedding agreed that my dress was no other than the best. They made my dreams come true and feel confident they have made a lot of efforts and work. In less than two months they were able to provide me an amazing dress yet no other bridal boutique was able to do so. Their style and eye for detail is extraordinary. I highly recommend Idora Birdal to anyone and everyone. They are extraordinarily amazing and I can't find a greater word to describe them.
