Testimonials

Sarah - Wearing La Sposa

I just wanted to send my thanks and appreciation to Penrith Bridal Centre & Melinda in particular for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day. The moment I stepped into the store the girls looked after my mum, sister and I so well and helped me find the dress I had been dreaming of. I had heard that dress shopping can be a daunting process but they made the experience so pleasant, easy and fun. The pictures speak for themselves, your designs are wonderful and I received so many comments on my dress that day. I tell all prospective brides now that you don't need to go to the city to find a beautiful dress. Thank you again for making my special day so perfect

Sarah - Wearing Wendy Makin

Hi Melinda, Huge thank you to all of the staff at Penrith Bridal Centre for my beautiful Wendy Makin dress, Natisse top & Nicky skirt. I felt like a princess on the day and the dress was so comfortable. Thank you again, Sarah

Yasmin - Wearing Watters

Hi Mel, I had my wedding way back in September and finally got my professional photos and had to share some gorgeous details shots of my wedding dress and veil with you. The belt you ordered for me from another dress worked so perfectly too and the alteration lady, did the most amazing job. So many people commented on the fact that I not once had to fiddle with my strapless dress because it fit so perfectly! I had such an amazing experience with Penrith Bridal Centre. Thank you so much for all your help! Yasmin

Ellissa - Wearing Wendy Makin

I wanted to thank you all once again for the amazing experience I had at Penrith Bridal Centre. I was so nervous and had an awful experience in a bridal shop in the city and it left me feeling like there was never going to be a dress that suited me but also matched the image I had in my head for myself. The ladies at Penrith Bridal Centre made me feel special from the moment I walked in and also listened to what I wanted. Dom was absolutely amazing with the alteration and the added sleeve was exactly what I needed to make the dress reflect a little bit more of me. On my wedding day I felt like a million bucks but I also felt completely comfortable in my own skin which doesn't usually happen. Thanks for making that happen. Thanks again for such an amazing experience.

Ashleigh - Wearing Roz La Kelin

I just wanted to thank everyone that helped with my gown selection at Penrith Bridal Centre. I was on a time limit, as my wedding was booked last minute in Canada. Melinda knew how worried I was about not finding a dress, but she blew me away. The dress was absolutely stunning. We had a lovely journey back to Canada and it was a beautiful day. I am so happy I found this store in Australia. It has made my experience living here that much more amazing!!

Jamie - Wearing Roz La Kelin

Hi Girls, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the help I received from Francesca when selecting my wedding dress (Roz La Kelin- Arabella) she was super friendly and didn't pressure me at all but gave me her honest opinion and I'm so glad that I ended up picking the dress that I did. And I also want to thank Melinda for her excellent advice about my petticoat, I could walk around the property with ease on our wedding day and I'm so glad I spent the extra money hiring one through you instead of using the cheap one I bought online that didn't support the weight of my dress enough. Ive been recommending you to all my brides (I'm a florist) as the service I received was beyond exceptional ! Kind Regards Jamie

Leanne - Wearing Wendy Makin

Hi Melinda, I wanted to thank you and your staff for all your help with my wedding gown. You were all such a pleasure to deal with. I initially came into your Bridal Centre back in October 2013 and choose a Wendy Makin gown and changed my mind once I left the store. It wasn’t too much trouble at all for me to come back and get the Wendy Makin Regina gown that I initially fell in love with. The whole process was totally stress free and you kept me up to date every step of the way. Our wedding on 11 October 2014 was everything we dreamed of and my stunning Wendy Makin gown made me feel like a total princess!! I love her work!! The dress was so comfortable to wear I didn’t want to take it off!! My hair clips and earrings were also purchased from your store. Your staff were also helpful in recommending a cleaning and preservation service to me after the wedding. I will recommend you to anyone looking for a great Bridal Centre to purchase their dress from. Thank you again so very much and I wish you and your staff all the very best for the future. Warm Regards, Leanne

Amy - Wearing Henry Roth

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you so much to the whole team for helping me achieve such a beautiful wedding in 3 months.

Can not thank you enough. I have attached some photos. Thanks again. Amy x

Danu - Wearing Wendy Makin

Christina - La Sposa

Dear Melinda, So many thanks for helping me select my wedding gown. You took me on a guided tour of your gowns and number 6 was just perfect! Much to my amazement and your slight bewilderment that it was almost everything I said I didn't want! Mum managed the 24 hour flight to England with the gown without a hitch. As you suggested the flight attendants took good care of it in the business class section. I found a lovely local seamstress who took the dress in and it truly was the most magical day. Thanks so much for helping me sort one of the crucial elements! Jamie loved my dress and I have received many compliments from others. As you suggested, I haven't seen iciar in the UK bridal stores. Below are some photos from our magnificent day in Corfe Castle, Dorset, England. Best wishes, Christina

Elicia - Wearing Justin Alexander

Secret Review - A Wedding in Wonderland

Penrith Bridal Centre This was an interesting one (mainly because we got lost on the way there and could not find the entry: bridal brain). From the back, the store blends in but as we entered, we were prepared for an adventure and my oh my it was. Their website is quite impressive (we had done a little pre-consultation investigating). It lists all of the designers they stock as well as examples of their collections and accessories. Plus, they have what most other stores are lacking, a Facebook page to show you their latest stock, give you updates and tidbits of inspiration. Further, they continually have what all ladies love. SALES! Penrith Bridal Centre is like many others an appointment only institution. Their parking lot is quite big and will be free for the duration of your appointment. They are clustered with other shops but as you approach and walk in, you are pleasantly surprised. The store is well stocked. Mens suites are to the left with bridesmaids and mother of the bride collections to the right. This is quite handy as you can literally get all of your bridal clothing in the one store if you so desire. Their prices are quite comparable to other institutions for bridesmaid dresses and their colour pallet for selection to match the colours of your wedding is very impressive. As you continue into the store, one of the staff members greets you from their reception area. Their appearance is modern, with a large black desk and chandeliers while still maintaining a vintage twist with large bird cages which house some of their display dresses mixed with rustic furniture. It is all pleasantly presented. Behind the reception desk is a beautiful seating area next to a rack of their sale dresses, all in good condition and amazing prices with some as low as $250 (yes, I did write $250!). Plus, when you look over their shop, you will see some amazing photographs of weddings which I later found out were taken by one of the joint owners. This is a real positive for brides. Not only does it mean you can consider the options for your dress, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, groom, groomsmen and photographer but it also means that the staff have a good idea of what will look good in photos (fit, styling, angles, texture) so don’t be afraid to ask questions. They were very willing to answer mine. The staff were very friendly from start to finish. They suggested dresses for me which suited my figure and were sure to include my family and friends in choosing the styles. They also have a nice range for real brides which is worth a mention. Their designer range is quite impressive, including names like Karen Willis Holmes, Henry Roth, La Sposa and Wendy Makin. When you go into the main room, you are asked to remove your shoes prior to entry. Although a bother at the time, when you enter the sample dresses are immaculate so you can understand why they enforce this rule (and when you attend some other stores, you almost wish they would do the same). The appointments are an hour in duration but there are plenty of staff present so you do not feel rushed. I think from start to finish we were there for two hours all up and not at any point did we feel rushed. The selection of dresses is so vast and the range of silhouettes large. I encourage you as do the staff to try on silhouettes out of your comfort range. You may just be surprised! I tried on a few different designers including Karen Willis Holmes, Henry Roth and Roz la Kelin. From the Roz la Kelin collection, I tried on Harlow. It was perfectly structured and gives a beautiful shape with lots of detail in the bodice which is great (and what bride does not like a little bling!). I also tried on Ivanka from Henry Roth’s collection. It was a nice fit and sits well with a budget below $2000. I then had the pleasure of trying on Matilda, Anastasia and Madelyn from the Karen Willis Holmes collection. Karen’s collection was my personal favourite of the appointment. The dresses at first glance look simple yet have such a whimsical appearance. In my opinion, these are perfect for a bride looking to capture the whimsy of a garden wedding. I could picture getting photos in each of the dresses running through a large garden, endless visions of white roses and greenery. Perfection! We were advised of the conditions of purchase. They were among the most reasonable I have heard. A deposit in the form of either 50% or a $ amount with payments due. To my surprise they also have a 7 day cooling off period where cancellations lose an administration fee. Great for those nervous brides although I am sure that if you were to purchase there, you would be delighted with the experience. The reviews on the facebook site particularly seem to be of quite happy customers. Overall, my experience at Penrith Bridal Centre was delightful! It is a place which will give you many options for your special day while encouraging your individuality and uniqueness. I was impressed greatly with Penrith Bridal Centre, but I guess the real question is, did she say yes to the dress?

Aimee - Wearing La Sposa

"Hi Melinda, I bought my dress from your lovely shop and just had my wedding on Saturday. The girls in the shop and the fantastic dress fitter asked if I could send through some photos after my wedding so I've attached some photos showing off my beautiful dress for you! The dress just fitted perfectly! So many of my guests were asking where I got it from! Thanks again to everyone at Penrith bridal centre! I absolutely loved my dress and loved that I didn't have to travel all the way to the city for something so beautiful! Kind Regards, Aimee"

Bianca - Wearing Roz La Kelin

Hi Melinda, Here are some pictures from our amazing day. Its only taken me 6 months to get some to you but better late than never. It was so hard to choose photos for our album as we had so many amazing photos. Once again I would like to thank you and Dom for everything you both did to make our day special. We got so many comments on the bridesmaid dresses and how well they looked in the photos. I was also told how well my dress fitted me and how it suited my shape and I only have you and Dom to thank for that. Words can express how grateful I am for everything you did. From the boy's suits to all our dresses and my veil. Thanks again. Your store, staff and service was amazing and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your store to anyone. You all should be proud of your work. Bianca.

Andrea - Wearing La Sposa

I would love to thank Corinne and Penrith Bridal Centre once again for putting me in the perfect dress for our perfect day. James himself said I looked amazing and just how he imagined I would look (even though this is probably what every groom says to his bride on the wedding day haha!) Thank you especially for your assistance in helping me pick "THE DRESS"! I think I tried on over twenty dresses in the store before I finally went back to the La Sposa Fanal which, Corrine, you had already said was the dress that looked the best on me!
