Alyssa Kristin

($2,800 to $3,000)

About the designer:

Nothing looks more striking on a woman than confidence. Our collections are thoughtfully designed so that each piece, while varied in style and silhouette, features a distinctive element – a dramatic train, a unique neckline, a removable skirt. This allows a bride to accentuate her favorite feature, whether it is her back, collar bone or hour glass figure, and radiate confidence. 

Alyssa Kristin Designer / Owner, Alyssa Kahle, started her career in public accounting and consulting before transitioning into the bridal world. While engaged, Kahle struggled to find "the dress" and decided to take matters into her own hands (quite literally).

Kahle's experience lead her to start Alyssa Kristin, a bridal line for the confident, chic, modern day woman.

Made With Love

($2,800 - $3,300)

About the designer:

The Made with Love story began just after Josh proposed to our director, Carla, in February 2013. What an exciting occasion – both families celebrated extensively! However, when Carla started the search for the perfect dress, she went to more than 10 bridal stores on the Gold Coast and Brisbane and left unsatisfied. She couldn’t find one dress that was perfect in style, fit and price. In a disheartened moment, Carla realised that her dream dress wasn’t a possibility this lifetime.

Determined, Carla did some research to custom-make her dress. Before long, she had custom-made a few and had become friends with the seamstress; it took a lot of work but the positive results were addictive. Almost unintentionally, Carla completed her first bridal collection, Made with Love, in June 2013.

Watters

($2,000 - $4,000)

About the designer:

Many moons ago, (37 years if you’re the numbers type), a light went off in the mind of Vatana Watters. She’d been designing one-off dresses for herself, as well as friends and family – who came up empty handed when looking for dresses that didn’t feel cookie-cutter. So Vatana took a vow (ha), to take matters into her own hands. Fast forward to now. The Watters family has become a creative tribe of designers, pattern makers and seamstresses.

Our focus – know fashion, pick up on trends and understand how your wants and needs evolve. Drama, comfort, style, versatility and individuality. We want to be all that to brides.
