Following my engagement last year, I began the search for the perfect preloved wedding dress!

Budget and environment-conscious, I found a reputable online marketplace, and I shortlisted ten gorgeous preloved gowns! However, in the end, I couldn’t commit to a purchase as I had never tried on a wedding dress and didn’t know which styles I liked on me. I decided to visit a local boutique with the mindset that if I found “the one”, then I would purchase it. And if not, then at least I would have a better idea of which dress styles suited me (and I would know what to look for online!). In the end, I found and purchased my dress in-store within the first 40 minutes of bridal shopping!
Now several months after my wedding, I have my wedding dress listed for sale online. I have had 22 people add it to their shortlist, yet no one has made the plunge to purchase it.
It is from this experience that I realised that Adelaide was missing something - a bridal boutique selling preloved dresses, providing brides with the confidence to purchase a dress by having the opportunity to see it, try it on and even share the experience with close friends.
Share the Love Bridal is a pop-up boutique held at the Hotel Richmond in Rundle Mall – the place where we held our wedding reception. In this appointment-only, private and beautifully-set space, I will be accompanied by the wedding dress alterations specialist that did an incredible job altering my wedding dress.
