How do I pronounce Céline Rita?
How can I try on a Céline Rita dress?
How long do Céline Rita dresses take to make?
We require a 4-6 week lead time for our made-to-order bridesmaid collections, however, we will always accommodate rush orders where possible. If you are purchasing a one-off dress, we can usually deliver short turnarounds. Just ask us, as we really want to help if we can! We do get very busy during peak wedding season, so be sure to book in sooner where possible, as we have had to reluctantly turn a few CR babes down in the past.
What sizes do you carry?
We carry a full range of sizes from 6 to 14. We have a variety of sizes of each style, in our showroom for you to try on.
How do I know what size will fit me?
For our made-to-order bridesmaids, we advise a consultation where possible, in our Auckland boutique, where you are able to try on different sizes and styles. If you are ordering online or from overseas, use our Size Guide to help you choose, and drop us a line, we're always here to help, and know the fit of our dresses inside-out!
Can I choose a different fabric for my made-to-order dress?
We have carefully selected the fabric used for each of the Céline Rita dress styles. We are unable to offer you alternative fabric options to those offered. But we promise you, we have chosen the best fabric. We can send you fabric swatches too, just let us know what you're looking for and your address.
What colours can I order my dress in?
Each season we carefully select a range of colours to work with. We are unable to create custom colours for our CR bridesbabes, but we promise we have chosen the best colours, and you have LOTS to choose from! To receive a fabric swatch, send us a note with the colours you are interested in and your postal address, so you can see how beautiful these colours are in person. Or book in for a consultation at our showroom to view and try on the dresses in real life.
Do you have every style, size and colour in your boutique to try on?
We have a range of sizes and styles made up in each colour. The exact style, size and colour combo you're after may not be available to try on, but you will be able to try your preferred colour on, in a different style, you might just have to use your imagination a little.
Are your dresses made-to-measure?
We have spent a lot of time perfecting the fit of our styles, and will help you to choose a dress as close to your size as possible. We do not offer made-to-measure, or a full alteration service. We do, however, offer hemming, as all of our dress styles have been made to accommodate the CR babes who are over 6 foot!
I'm pregnant, and the wedding isn't for another 3 months...
YAY, congratulations!! As long as we know, we are able to schedule in pregnant bridesbabes for last minute orders, to ensure we have the most accurate fit for the big day. We have created bridesmaid dresses for lots of mumma-to-be's, so just get in touch if you have any worries or questions about this process.
Where are all the Céline Rita dresses made?
All Céline Rita gowns are designed, cut & made here in Auckland, New Zealand using local suppliers, as they have been for the last 7 years.
I've booked in for a consultation in the Céline Rita showroom, what should I expect, and do I need to bring anything?
For those who are looking for bridesmaid dresses, we LOVE weddings! We love hearing all about yours, so we can help you bring your vision to life. We want choosing your bridesmaid dresses to be the most stress-free part of organising your big day! Bring along any pinterest boards, or screenshots, so we can get a feel for your wedding style, so we can help advise you on what we think would work best. If you already know what colours and styles you are interested in, have them on hand.
For our babes who are trying on dresses, if possible, bring along underwear and shoes you plan to wear on the big day. If you're not sure yet, that's not a prob either, just bring your happy self along!
You will get a full hour for your consultation with Céline, where you are able to try on as many dresses as you would like. You will also meet little Flo (as seen here) she will likely greet you at the door with a toy, she loves cuddles and kiddies. Speaking of..
Is it ok if I bring my baby/child to the consultation?
When can I book a consultation for?
We have limited our booking times to Thursday late night, Friday and Saturday. However if these days don't work, get in touch, as we will be able to suss a time that works outside of these hours too.
Where is your showroom?
We are located at 136B Newton Road, Eden Terrace, Auckland. The entrance is on St Benedicts Street.
Do you have parking?
Weekdays, parking is limited as it's a busy little area! You should be able to find a car park on the road easily enough. On Saturday, there is plenty of parking up our driveway.
How does payment work?
We require 50% deposit upon the order of your made-to-order dresses. The remaining 50% is to be paid before you pick up or before they are shipped. Payment can be made with Eftpos/Credit Card in our showroom, via Paypal, through our website, or direct debit.
