Is your dress quality good?

Joy's Bridal Collection is committed to deliver a great quality which we are proud of. Quality is our reputation. We aim to provide the most cost-effective option to our customers, but doesn't mean that the quality will be compromised. We only work with the fabric suppliers who we have established a long-term relationship, and our dressmakers have extensive bridal experience in the industry. We will never sell a dress that is defective or sneaky in the materials. Come and have an inspection at our home studio then you will know!

Why is your wedding dress so cheap?

An average piece of a wedding dress in Australia costs $2600, but at Joy's Bridal Collection, nothing is over $1000. We are a home-based studio, which saves enormous overhead costs compared to a traditional shop front. With cutting down the cost in renting, shop fittings, outgoings and labours, the pricing pressure is also released from our customers.

Can I try on the dress?

Yes! You can visit our home studio located in Mont Albert, Melbourne. We always have some sample dresses in stock. Although the sizes are limited, you are still welcome to inspect the quality and pick the style you like! When you place an order, the dress will be tailor-made to your size. Booking is essential.

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. It will be customized specifically to your bust, waist, hip and height. In addition, there's an option to go with 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?

During the dressmaking process, we constantly update our customers with the progress photos or videos. From picking the fabric, making patterns, cutting and stitching, to the final completion, we make sure you are happy with each step before moving onto the next. You may provide any comment during the making process. However, please bear in mind that once the dress is complete, it is made specifically to the measurements you provide. That means no one else will be able to wear that dress. Because of this, we are unable to accept any returns or exchanges on custom dresses. Therefore, we strongly recommend you look at our Custom Made - Measure Myself to obtain the most accurate measurement. In any case, if the dress has major quality fault or not as described, please contact our customer service within 7 days of receiving the item. We will work out the best solution for you (refund or free alteration). At Joy's Bridal Collection, we’re committed to ensuring all our customers receive high quality dresses and great customer service.
