They are your best friends, they stick with you through thick and thin – we’re talking about your beloved bridesmaids. We all want a perfectly organized dream wedding and for a bride, her wedding day is possibly the most important day in her life. She wants to keep all her friends close to playing a role in her big wedding day and what better way than to have them as bridesmaids. There are a lot of tasks that a bride has to perform before the big day and having her besties to help out will ease the stress and the burden. One stress can be the most challenging one is choosing the right bridesmaid dresses for her girls.
Planning a wedding can get overwhelming! Even more so when you’re picking out bridesmaids dresses. There are so many factors to consider – do they complement your own gown? Do they go with the colour scheme? Will they look great on all your bridesmaids? And will your bridesmaids even like them?

But when you’re looking for quality, you can’t just go to any store. It won’t be easy to scope out the best bridesmaid dresses in Melbourne with a quick Google search. Luckily for you, we’ve prepared a list that you can keep coming back to!
We’ve reduced the workload for you and found our top bridesmaids go-to stores in Melbourne.

The Gown House
Bli Bli, Queensland
Welcome to The Gown House, an online boutique specialising in $99 infinity gowns.
We are 100% Australian owned, and based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
An infinity gown is a dress that is incredibly versatile due to its very long, adjustable ties which allow you to tie the dress however you wish. Wrap to flatter your body shape while expressing your personal style.
The fabric allows the dress to cinch in at the waist, and fall beautifully over the hips.
Get creative and see how many ways you can tie this dress, meaning it will never need to look the same twice.
