How much are your gowns?
Our gowns start at $2,500 and range up to approximately $6,000. Majority of gowns are under $3,500.
Do I need an appointment to see the gowns?
Yes! We are a small by apointment only studio. Seeing one bride at a time allows us to give you our full attention. To try on gowns and accessories, we require each bride to make a scheduled appointment. You can book online today via our Style Sessions page. Don't worry, we are very friendly and give you lots of time to chat to your friends and family about your choices. We can provide as much or as little guidance as you like!
How long are styling session times?
A private styling session at Moonstruck goes for 45 mins. This gives you plenty of time to browse our gowns and try on a handful of your favourites. It's completly free and you can book online. You are welcome to bring up to three guests with you. We also offer a 1.5 hour private 'Sip & See' style session which includes some fun added extras for you and your entourage of up to six. Accessories style sessions are also available. For more details, please visit our Style Sessions page.
When should I order my wedding gown?
Gowns usually take 6 months to produce, as they are made to order. You should also factor in shipping and alterations during this time. We suggest ordering your gown 6 - 9 months before your wedding date so you have time for your fitting, alterations and accessorising! There are rush options available if your wedding is under 6 months away, but extra fees will apply in these cases.
Will I need alterations?
We will order your gown as close to your current size as possible, but all bridal gowns will need alterations to give a perfect fit for your wedding day. Moonstruck will provide all brides with a recommended alteration services so they can schedule an appointment as soon as they have collected their gown. We recommend starting your alterations 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding, so make sure you add this time onto the 6 month gown production times.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
It's always good to look at inspiration and different styles so you have an idea of which gowns you might like to try on. Bring heels if you plan on wearing them and simple, comfortable nude underwear so nothing distracts from the gowns. Please don't come with body bronzer or recently applied fake tan, we want our gowns to stay clean for future brides to try on.
Can I bring a large group to my appointment?
We are a small studio so we can't take large parties unfortunately. When you book a Style Session appointment you are welcome to bring up to 3 guests with you. Our 'Sip & See' appointments are designed for larger groups and are perfect for bridal parties. You can bring up to 6 guests to a 'Sip & See' appointment.
What size are your samples?
We would love to carry every size, however as we are a small studio we can only carry a certain number of samples. We have samples available to try on from sizes AU 8 through to AU 16, but many can be pegged or have a few buttons undone when trying on. Making our brides feel comfortable is our number one priority. We deliberately choose gowns that women of all shapes and sizes look great in, not just super models!
