A wedding is not only an occasion or a mere event, it is the symbolic bond that is created between two individuals uniting them in holy matrimony and along with the wedding come a series of events leading to the big day. Weddings are filled with fun, laughter and celebration, but to build a wedding requires a great amount of time and effort too.
Apart from the theme, flowers, decors and food the main element of a wedding always seems to the the bridal gown. There is a moment in every wedding where every individual waits in anxiety to only see what the bride is wearing. At church weddings you will even find that the entire congregation rises when the bride arrives. Even at Hindu and Muslim weddings everybody’s gaze is always on the bride. A bride’s attire is so crucial on her wedding since everyone will be looking only at her. And you will find that every country has a unique collection of bridal attire relevant for every individual.
New Zealand is no different when it comes to shopping and weddings, hence you will find a number of bridal stores as well. Some of the top bridal stores in New Zealand would be the Astra Bridal, Bridal and Ball and the Impression Bridal. Although there is an option to purchase wedding gowns online it is always ideal to purchase a wedding gown in person. A wedding gown is not just a mere dress that the bride would wear on her wedding day but a dress that would symbolize purity and a blessed future as well. As every person is different you will find that every gown is also different. 90% of the time you will never find women sporting the same dress, either there would be a change in the embroidery or the pattern, hence every dress is usually different and very rarely would you find 2-3 dresses of the same pattern.
Another top bridal store which is known for its highly couture designs is Louise Anderson famous in Christchurch. But if you think like a star and would love to dress up like them too then a Vera Wang gown is the way to go. Vera Wang has been known to dress up some of the top celebrities with her gorgeous creations. Vera’s gowns are all unique in design and are mostly custom made to the vendors liking’s and desires. Although wedding gowns are best bought in person, if you are one of those who think that it isn’t such a big deal or if you genuinely don’t have the time to spend then New Zealand also has some top stores who deal specially in online bridal gowns.
Some of the top stores are Parkland Bridal, Still White and Christobelles. These stores not only provide dresses in every cut and style but they also have a detailed form which allows you to describe your measurements in order for them to customize the dress exactly to your liking. You can even find second hand dresses or ones on rental.
