"I was so happy with my dress on the day – I really did feel like a princess. The dress got a lot of genuine compliments!"
"We love what we do and take immense pleasure in helping you every way we can, so you feel amazing on your special day."
RSVP Bridal Couture is run by mother and daughter team, Janet and Andrea Potts. The business was founded with the intention of creating a place where they could sell Andrea’s label. The initial idea however, grew into something quite different.
Janet has sewn from a very early age and has a background in retail. Andrea knew as a young girl that sewing was her passion and set about turning her dreams into reality by studying for a Bachelor of Fashion Design. It was a natural progression for the two of them to open a business making wedding gowns and evening wear.
Both Janet and Andrea do all the buying, merchandising and interior design for their shop. The business has just moved into a brand new, first floor, 300 square metre store. The old concrete arches have been beautifully restored and with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the space is stylish and special. Numerous mannequins dressed in the latest bridal and evening wear share the substantial studio. The dressing rooms are spacious and private with an area set aside for family and friends to come to share in the bride's experience.
"The business has grown, changing names and premises along the way. It’s been an ever evolving, incredibly interesting journey. Our vision is to stock an extensive range of stunning gowns and accessories for our clients, providing them with the best advice and customer service we can possibly give."
