Cake That! Exquisite Cakes by Sarah-Jane
Sarah-Jane is a star in the wedding world and if you've ever tasted one of her cakes you'll know why -- they are to die for! I'm very lucky to live just around the corner from SJ, so you can get double the value out of a trip to Alderley by visiting both of us.
Gowns and dresses
Hilde Heim Designer Bride and Cocktail - now in Alderley!
Hilde is known for designing and stocking unique bridal and cocktail gowns. Whether you choose one of Hilde's own designs or opt for one of the more unusual gowns from Rembo-Styling (imported from Belgium and altered for you by Hilde's team) you'll be guaranteed to have a dress unlike any other. I've had a few friends who purchased their gowns from Hilde and they were simply stunning. So if you're looking for something a little bit different, this is the place to start. Hilde has recently moved her store from Paddington to Alderley (454 Enoggera Road), so why not see what Hilde has in store when you come to chat to me about photos or Sarah-Jane from Cake That! about your cake.
A Formal Affair - Alderley
A Formal Affair has a huge range of bridal, cocktail, bridesmaid, prom, semi-formal, race day and evening dresses available. I'm talking thousands of dresses! Some of the gowns are aimed at teenagers for their high school formals or proms, but some of the gowns I've seen in their shop window in recent weeks have been stunning -- makes you wonder how celebrities can get their outfits so wrong for red carpet events when stunning dresses like these are so readily available. Definitely worth the time to take a look for the bride and her bridesmaids.
