Lets Be Real...


While the web is a great place to do wedding gown research, it's also a hotbed of fraud, unfortunately. There are many counterfeit 'designer' products being offered on web sites and web auctions, as well as unauthorized physical outlets. A common claim is that the counterfeit dresses are made by genuine bridal designers and their factories, but this is invalid. 

And The Veil Bridal are authorised retailers for the following bridal designers; Watters (WTOO and Willowby) Divina Sposa, Wendy Makin & Wendy Makin Couture, Roz La Kelin, Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner, Fox Bridal Group, Cizzy Bridal and White April Bridal. We also carry collections by evening designers Jadore, Two Birds Bridal, Tania Olsen and Mori Lee. 

We are terribly saddened when we hear stories about a bride who thought she'd found a bargain, only to receive a poor imitation of a designer gown or a dress that was not what she ordered or not the quality advertised. 

Only authorised retailers can provide authentic gowns; and are certain to have the fit, quality and attention to detail for which our gowns have. 

Please ensure when you purchase your dream gown it has the correct sizing, labelling and tags attached. All designer gowns come with a authenticity tag of some sort, ask your bridal stylist to point it out for you!
