Do I need an appointment to try on wedding dresses at Raffaele Ciuca?

Yes! One of our experienced stylists will guide your shopping experience.

How long is my appointment?

Bridal gown appointments are 1 hour. During sample sales, the appointments are half an hour.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Bring pictures of dresses you’ve seen on our website, on Pinterest and social media, or that you’ve tried on elsewhere. And bring an open mind: don’t be surprised if you find “THE DRESS” on your first visit!

Who should I bring to my appointment?

Bring your closest friend or family member whose opinion you value. Someone who knows you well and with who you want to share the experience. Too many people can make the experience confusing.

What size gowns are available for me to try on?

Most of our samples are generally sizes 8-14. We also carry the largest selection of designer curve-size gowns which are 16+. Click here to view the collection.

When should I order my veil, headpiece, and jewellery?

Some special-order accessories have a lead-time of 3-4 months, so we recommend allowing plenty of time to give yourself the most options.

Can I complete my entire look in one appointment?

Absolutely! Not only do many brides find their dress on their first visit to our emporiums, but they also find all their accessories (veils, headpieces, jewellery etc) on their first visit.

Do I need to make an appointment to look at accessories?

No! You may walk in at any time to try on accessories.

Which designers can I find only at Raffaele Ciuca?

Our collection is full of the world's most notable bridal talent, including  Vera Wang, Berta Bridal, Pronovias and Oksana Mukha - these designers can exclusively be found at Raffaele Ciuca in Melbourne.
