We know how busy it is in the lead up to the ‘big day’, so many questions, so much to plan, a lot to organise.. including a lot of people to organise!

We’ve got your back with bridesmaids dresses to compliment both you, and your party.

All of our designs are able to be mixed and matched within a group, to ensure there is a shape to flatter every body-shape, and a style to suit every personality, allowing your bridesmaids to feel confident, happy and as special as they are.

While our full collection is displayed in store year round, we recommend booking a complimentary personalised appointment, allowing us to focus solely on you and your needs. Our consultations are also so much fun, with bubbles on offer and bridal experts to help you choose the right design, colour and fit; book here.

Below we have put together a list of commonly asked questions, hopefully this means we are able to make the decision making process a lot easier for you and your bridal party! However if your query has not been answered, or you would like to discuss further, we would love to help you, please contact us at bridesmaids@blak.co.nz 

We at BLAK Bridesmaids take great pride in being a part of your wedding, and assure you that this day is just as important to us.

We look forward to turning your dream, into a reality.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do all of your styles come in each of your fabric and colour options?

Yes, every one of our styles is able to be created in any of our fabric and colour options - as well as custom colours.

 

What are the fabric options?

Viscose: A beautiful soft and draped fabric, that breathes well, and feels light to the touch

Viscose Twill: A heavier fabric, with more structure and a high lustre sheen

Viscose Satin Crepe: A draped fabric, with a slight weave; it features a satin face and a crepe back, we primarily use the ‘glossy’ satin side.

 

How do I go about ordering a custom colour?

First step, provide us with your perfect colour/s - we will then have our skilled dyers aim to match that shade. This adds an additional 8 weeks to the creation process, as we will need to have the swatch approved before going ahead with your designs. Please note due to each piece being hand dyed, and in small batches, there may be a slight colour variation - we suggest all items are purchased together to ensure the same production batch, which will avoid any variation in colour. 

We charge an additional $50 to your overall order to cover the custom work.

 

How do I order, and how long does it take?

There are two ways to order, either online here, or in store at either BLAK Newmarket or BLAKCHAOS Mount Maunganui. Once confirmed, and paid for in full, production will commence on your pieces: this can take between 8-14 weeks, or in our busier season (September to February) it could take up to 16 weeks. 
When placing your order for your bridal party, we suggest that all items are purchased together; this ensures the full order comes from the same production batch, to avoid any variation in dress colour.

Once your order arrives in store, we will contact you, not prior - however, if there is any delay in production you will be notified. 

You will then be able to collect in store, or have couriered. 

 

What sizes do you offer?

We offer from size 6 - 20

 

I live away from your store locations, yet want to have my bridesmaids try outfits on,
what should I do?

We offer a sample service, where we courier pieces to you; You choose up to 4 dresses, for $50 and we will include a return courier ticket in the cost. You will have 48hours to return these pieces after arrival.

 

Are appointments necessary?

While the collection is able to be viewed year round, in stores, we recommend booking an appointment.
