You wedding is something you may have dreamed about since you were a little girl. You have scrap books and pinterest boards filled with your fantasy wedding dress. It’s just a matter of locating it…. Or you might be like me, and had given up hope of being married once my twenties were over, and any idea of my ‘ideal’ wedding dress disappeared with it. I needed to start from scratch, and that was a completely overwhelming concept. But luckily for brides of all budgets, there’s a vast range of wedding dresses available in Adelaide – and we’ve put a list together to help make your hunt for a gown a little easier.
With options both off the rack, and custom made, these designers know how to make your dreams come true.

It was a passion fostered from a young age, as Greta watched her creative grandmother at work. These early lessons on how to sew proved the greatest influence on Greta’s design career. After studying four years of Fashion Design and working in the rag trade for another five, Greta knew it was time to launch her own label in 2010. This long-held dream started in a home studio with a small range of sold-through trunk shows. The evolution of Greta’s style has naturally led to a focus on custom-made pieces and now a bridal range. For Greta, it’s more than the garment you create, it’s the relationships you develop along the way.
