Bridesmaid Dress & Formal Wear FAQs
What Should the Fathers of the Groom and Bride Wear to the Weddings?
Other experiences have been that 80% to 90% of fathers choose a tuxedo or suit different from the wedding party to help them stand out, while 10% to 20% of the fathers wear the same suit or tuxedo and just change the long tie or bow tie and pocket square.
Often, the fathers wear a long tie or bow tie and pocket square that matches the colour of the dress of the person accompanying them to the wedding.
The suggestion is to choose which suit or tuxedo they will be wearing, and they will be relieved of not having the pressure of choosing for themselves! Read a full blog here on ideas and trends on what the fathers of the grooms and brides wear to the wedding.
Do I Need an Appointment to Discuss Tuxedos and Suits for My Wedding?
A very personalised, one-on-one interactive service and recommend that you make an appointment to ensure you have a tuxedo and suit consultant available for you.
While accepting walk-ins, making an appointment will ensure that you have someone available to talk to you at your preferred time and that there is no wait.
You can make an appointment online or even text. An appointment is not required if you just need to get measured for a wedding party (unless there are more than 3 of you coming simultaneously).
My Bridesmaids Don’t Like What I’ve Chosen. What Can I Do?
This is so tricky; you’ve chosen dresses to suit the feel and style of your big day, and they’re hesitant. The first thing is finding out WHY they don’t like what you’ve chosen. If it’s practical—like the style is uncomfortable to wear—you may need to make accommodations.
If you have only ever purchased clothes to suit you, it can be hard to understand that strapless dresses are a nightmare for large-chested women or that a tight dress can be uncomfortable for someone more gender-fluid.
If the colour is causing problems, make sure they can see the colour in person, not just on the internet. Send fabric swatches if possible. If it’s still a problem, find out why. Be prepared to meet them halfway; maybe a sage green instead of apple green.
Who Pays for Bridesmaids Dresses?
In theory, anyone who's generous enough to offer should be able to pay for the bridesmaids dresses without offending, even the mother-of-the-bride, if she so wishes!
But what you're asking with this question is who is expected to pay for bridesmaids dresses, and that's where things get complicated, as traditions differ according to where in the world you're from!
Do You Carry Maternity Style Dresses for Bridesmaids?
This is where it can help you. Most designers offer a maternity dress option. It also depends on how the mom-to-be is carrying the baby and her shape. There are a few options.
Some designers carry maternity dresses and also have styles with extra fabric. At 5-6 months or less, she can typically order a normal dress but order a size or two bigger than what she usually wears. If she is more than six months pregnant, a normal dress won’t have enough fabric to cover a pregnant belly.
In that case, you have two options: she can either order a maternity bridesmaid dress (if the designer offers one) or, in some cases, you can order 3-4 yards of fabric and have a maternity dress made for her by a local tailor.
If the designer she has chosen does not have a maternity option, help direct her to a designer that has maternity options and match the hues.

Godwin Charli - Bridesmaid Dress & Formal Wear Shop in Melbourne
0429 539 823
However, it was the discovery in 2001 of a local tailoring workshop in Melbourne gave Godwin the fire to follow his true passion and nurture his natural-born gift.
In his early 20s, the tailoring workshop that once supported Godwin's hobby had become his classroom. Under the careful guidance of master tailors and head ateliers, these rare mentors taught Godwin a hands-on approach & patience, rarely seen in today’s fast fashion industry. It was under these tables and machines that the Godwin Charli brand was born in 2007.
Specialising in tailored fashion for Men and Women, the ‘Charli’ in the brand (the female) nods to Godwin’s parents Charles and Evelyn, for all of their sartorial influence. Today, Godwin Charli draws on the same lessons in pursuit of tailoring perfection.

Hugo Boss - Bridesmaid Dress & Formal Wear Shop in Melbourne
61 3 9643 2222
Below you will find a summary of a study produced on the history of Hugo Ferdinand Boss (1885-1948) and his company. The full version of the study was published by the HUGO BOSS Group in August 2011.
The management considered it exceptionally important to have this segment of the company history thoroughly investigated in light of the continuing public and media interest.
The study and its summary were produced in cooperation with the highly respected Gesellschaft für Unternehmensgeschichte – a German institution devoted to chronicling corporate histories – and independent historians.
The Group wishes to emphasise that it was not involved in the research or writing and that no influence was brought to bear concerning the study's form or content.
Innovation Meets Responsibility
Our products combine high quality and demanding design with ethical standards and compliance with environmental and health requirements. Clear guidelines, sound knowledge, and dialogue with partners help HUGO BOSS integrate sustainability into our daily decisions. Through this approach, we pursue innovative, sustainable solutions that capture the full potential of our possibilities.
Responsible Use Of Materials
HUGO BOSS has always used high-quality materials and processing techniques to create long-lasting products. In product development, we attach great importance to the selection of more sustainable materials.
It is a standard part of this strategy to pay attention to species-appropriate animal breeding and husbandry methods. The company rejects animal testing as well as inappropriate animal breeding and farming methods. When it comes to materials of animal origin, such as leather, wool or down, we strictly adhere to recognised animal welfare and species-protection guidelines.
For example, we follow the guidelines of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIC) and recognise "the five freedoms" as guiding principles for animal welfare. This defines certain freedoms as the minimum requirements for animal husbandry. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) is also an important principle that guides our actions.
To make sure that we make the right decisions as part of our sustainable materials strategies, we have conducted an extensive natural capital evaluation of all our materials.

Informale - Bridesmaid Dress & Formal Wear Shop in Melbourne
1700 728 824
When creating the Informale concept, we knew one thing was for sure; We needed to make our garments locally.
For us, Made in Melbourne is very important. It allows us to support sustainable businesses and physically be a part of the process from beginning to end.
Each step can be overseen in person, from designing each piece, sampling and perfecting it with our production team, and quality checking to make sure we are happy with each garment to ensure it is ready to be shipped out to our customers.
When we say local, we mean local: Our workshop is only a short 30-minute drive away from our office.
Each piece in our collection is made for the Modern Man, seeking a stylish solution to a world growing more casual by the minute.
Less is more
We believe in the old-school idea of buying less and buying quality. We aim to create limited quantities of seasonal staples which will stand the test of time, build a character with age and continue to look fresh and relevant for years to come.
As a brand, we take great pride in doing the right thing.
We make sure to know exactly where all the materials that we use in a garment originate from and that the process in which they are made are environmentally and ethically friendly.
We only select materials grown, woven and dyed in countries where the environment is protected by law.
For us, sourcing the material comes well before cut or design. All of our garments are made with completely natural fibres. We make sure that when we select fabrics, we know the origin, dying, weaving process of the fabric we choose.
This means we often spend more time finding the right fabric than spending on the design and sampling process combined. We currently source fabric from Melbourne, ensuring that the companies we work with produce some of the highest quality fabrics.

Creating an aesthetically pleasing boutique with ample space where the bride would feel instantly comfortable as soon as she walked through the door, filled with an eclectic collection of designer gowns focusing on quality over quantity, accompanied by friendly, honest customer service.

Carte Blanche Bride - Dress & Formal Wear Shop in Melbourne
61 0 3 6111 0765
I found my wedding dress six weeks out from the day. It can be so frantic, overwhelming and unenjoyable to be searching for the dress to make you feel both special and yourself - only to be met with far too many choices, no real distinction between them all, crowded dressing rooms, and a lack of compassion or patience.
Carte Blanche Bride is here to cut through the clamour. To provide a serene experience where you feel heard and empowered to figure out what you want: to envision what your perfect dress feels like before you start sifting through the silk.

Made In Bridal - Dress & Formal Wear Shop in Melbourne
03 8528 5255
When I was planning my wedding, I knew that I didn’t want to visit a busy bridal shop with salespeople being pushy and end up spending so much time only to walk out empty-handed. I was also certain that I did not want to spend a fortune on my wedding dress.
I took the risk & ordered my dress online, realising that not every bride-to-be would take that kind of leap of faith. The dress was exactly what I had dreamed of.
That motivated me to start this business to help provide affordable yet very fashionable & classy wedding gowns of choice to all brides-to-be.
