Bridesmaid collections

Our Emma Bridals Collection offers our largest selection of styles and colours.  It is available for order in approximately 60 colours and ladies sizes 0 – 28.

Other brands have a smaller selection of colour choices and styles.

Bella Notte Bridal has gowns for sale off-the-rack as well as for order.

Most strapless gowns come with matching optional spaghetti straps that can be attached to the gown. Matching shawls are available for many styles.

Formal dresses

Bella Notte Bridal also carries several other designer collections available for sale off the rack. Some of these formal gowns are also suitable to wear as informal or destination wedding dresses for brides on a budget.

Please note that the styles of gowns available for sale off the rack vary throughout the year.


We stock a large number of Australian, UK and US designer collections. If you have a special request, Bella Notte Bridal can check to see what is available.


Bella Notte Bridal caters for all sizes – petite, standard and plus.  Formal gown sizes range from approximately Australian size 2 – 30 (ie, US size 0-28), depending upon brand.

Evening dresses and school formal dresses

School leavers and customers looking for an evening or cocktail dress are welcome to visit to find their dream gown from the selection of ready to wear gowns in store.

If you have an idea of a style in mind and have had difficulty finding it, ask the ladies at Bella Notte Bridal if they have something similar.  We have found many gowns for school leavers based on photos they have brought in.
