“Hi Mary,


Thank you so much for your help on Saturday with my fitting. You are by far the best Bridal store I have been too on the gold coast. You made me feel so welcome and really went out of your way to help me find the perfect dress!


Thanks again you really made my day!”

– Kasey

“Hi Rosa and Mary,


Thank you so much for your wonderful staff and the attention you gave my daughter Beth when trying to find her dream formal gown. Three visits later and you encouraged her to try on this dress the day after you received it. She fell in love with it and I have never seen such a big smile on her face. That smile got even bigger last Thursday when she put the dress back on with her hair and makeup done. She received so many compliments, a lot from girls that she has barely spoken to.


Everyone including teachers said she looked like a princess. She said she felt like a princess too and was so happy that we bought the gown. After such a hard 2 years for her, to see her so happy made me cry in happiness. It’s something that made her feel so special and it was thanks to the beautiful gown we bought from you. I could never thank you enough for what you have done for her. Her boyfriend could not take his eyes off her or smiling and so proud of her. These are just three of the hundreds I took.


Thank you again and I will be back for my two sons weddings.


Kindest regards and warmest thanks”

“I just ordered my bridesmaids dresses from Mary and Rosa! I live over 10 hours away from this shop but the lengths they have gone to for me and my bridesmaids who live in all different parts of Australia has been exceptional! Their customer service, communication and just all round friendly nature has provided me with such a lovely experience. From sending me websites where I could see the dresses, colour swatches and pictures of one of my bridesmaids trying the dress on in their shop, I could not of asked for anything else from them! Amazing! I am so happy we found them! Thank you so much from the bottom of heart! I would highly recommend dealing with these lovely ladies!”

– Kate Ogden

“From the minute we walked into rosa and Mary’s bridal shop I was more then impressed. The love these two ladies put into helping someone find a wedding dress is beyond amazing. They went above and beyond for me! From having the brand new sample dress I fell in love with sent back here for me and pulled out of the dress tour, to getting the matching lace sent all the way here to hand make my veil! Nothing was ever too hard for Rosa and Mary! They made finding my wedding dress such a beautiful experience and my dress was absolutely incredible. Thank you so much ladies, you’re amazing xxx”

– Briana Brookes

“What a little find this store was! Owned and operated by Mother and Daughter with a very warm and personalised service. Although initially upon entering the store it appears much smaller than the bigger more established bridal stores their range of gowns is large and truly exquisite so please give it a chance 🙂
Mary’s nature from the ‘get go’ was very warm and she genuinely wanted to help me find the perfect gown, nothing was a hassle in terms of adding to/altering an existing gown.
It’s so clear that Rosa and Mary are very passionate about what they do. I highly recommend this little gem 🙂 I’m so happy I gave these wonderful ladies and their store a chance. Highly recommend.”

– Annie Hage

I’ll be recommending you to anyone I know looking for bridal and formal wear :)”

“Last weekend Travelled from North Queensland to find the dress! Definitely recommended rosa and Mary’s bridal store to everyone on the search! The customer service was exceptional! these ladies were so lovely! and experienced! And I got to try on dresses not even available in Australia yet! not to mention any alteration ideas I hAd they didn’t say no you cannot do that instead were so excited about making a one of a kind couture gown to look like a gown that could easily cost over $10k. The dresses were also unbelievable prices for such exceptional gowns! And not to mention the alter ion prices! Unbeatable! Huge selection not the same old dresses you see in most bridal stores! Must visit ladies! you won’t be disappointed! Thank you again for having us!”

It’s all here at Rosa & Mary’s Bridal Shop. Thank you ladies, can’t wait to see what we create xxx

Post-wedding review:

Rosa and Mary made my wedding dress dreams come true. These ladies are truly miracle workers, helping me discover the remarkable princess gown that I had only dreamt of on Pinterest. Completely custom-made from a cheap designer gown, I ended up with a one-of-a-kind blush ball gown with a 2-metre train. It was absolutely incredible. In a matter of a week these ladies managed to finalise hand-beading my dress and fitting up the suits for my husband and father. Don’t go anywhere else for dream seamstresses. Rosa & Mary, thank you. You are my fairydressmakers! Love Mrs Hudson.”

– Caitlan Brooke Hudson

“The BEST wedding dress shop from the Gold Coast to Brisbane! I had 6 weeks to find a dress and while most stores didn’t want to help with a short notice order, Rosa and Mary were nothing but amazing. They were so helpful and welcoming and it is always a pleasure to call into the store. Every little detail I wanted they could do and of course came up with their own ‘quirky’ suggestions and a VERY reasonable price. I cannot recommend them high enough for any brides looking for their dream dress

– Alex Hills

“Outstanding, amazing, incredible!!! Best service on the Coast! Mary & Rosa were absolutely amazing offering me the best pre-bridal experience. From a simple gown from a Melbourne deisnger they were ble to create my dream wedding dress. These ladies deserve an award for making dreams come true. With just some consultation and a lot of pinterest images they managed to help me create the perfect on-of-a-kind blush ball gown that I was hunting for. Thank you ladies so much I loved this dress it was by far the best gown I have ever owned. Before this for my graduation the same ladies re-created my mother’s wedding gown into my cinderella formal dress. They are the one and only place to visit for every bride. A must-see bridal boutique and formal gala store. See Mary & Rosa to make your dreams a reality. Thank you ladies – Love the happy newly-wed xox”

– Dee Sandler

“I found Rosa and Mary’s bridal shop through total coincidence and I am so glad I did! I already had a wedding dress that I purchased from overseas but didn’t love so was in search of my dream dress with only 1.5 months until my wedding! I came across Rosa and Mary’s shop one weekend we travelled to the Gold Coast. I browsed their beautiful range of dresses and told Mary the style I was after. She has a great eye and totally gets you so the two dresses she picked out were exactly what I was after but I knew the second I tried on the second dress that this was the dress! It was stunning and looked expensive but was actually very affordable including the alterations! The dress off the rack was a few sizes too big for me but after the alterations Mary and Rosa did, it looks like it’s made for me and a million dollars on me. They really go above and beyond to make everything perfect for you. Also any concerns I had, they always tried to help and come up with solutions which were always spot on! It just goes to show their wealth of experience and how kind they are to their clients. I also love that they offer both dresses and alterations, which other places don’t, so you not only save hassle and stress but also money. Highly highly recommend these lovely ladies!”

– Zoo Y.

“Best formal dress/bridal shop I’ve been to! I went to at least 6 on the Gold Coast, and this was by far the best! Mary and Rosa were both so helpful, and I tried on so many dresses.
