Off The Rack

Wedding dress shopping has become a lot easier with the arrival of some fabulous, affordable, designer gowns in local department stores like David Jones and Myer. If you're a bride who is not really keen on traditional bridal boutique gowns, or their price tags, take a look at some of the modern, fashion-savvy gowns available in your local shopping mall.

Myer has introduced the label Matcevski Sweethearts, a range of silk gowns priced from $250 - $399. Affordable, flattering and stylish for either bridesmaids or the bride.

Local designer Akira Isogawa's gowns are popping up on a lot of photographers pages right now. Here are the images from his website alongside real brides looking runway ready.

Lisa Ho has some gorgeous dresses that are wedding day worthy (although her website certainly doesn't show it). But if these real brides are anything to go by, i think a visit to Lisa Ho is certainly not going to be a waste of time.
