HOW DO I PRONOUNCE CÉLINE RITA?
HOW CAN I TRY ON A CÉLINE RITA PIECE?
HOW LONG DO CÉLINE RITA DRESSES TAKE TO MAKE?
Made-to-order purchases are made within 1-3 weeks. For bridesmaid group orders, we require an 8 week lead time, however we will always do our absolute best to accommodate rush orders.
WHAT SIZES DO YOU CARRY?
We carry a full range of sizes from 6 to 16. 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 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 for each style. 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.
No. 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 girls 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 bridesmaids 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 CÉLINE RITA DRESSES MADE?
All Céline Rita pieces are designed, cut & made here in Auckland, New Zealand, using local suppliers and manufacturers.
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 inspiration for your big day, so we can get a feel for your wedding style, and 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 girls 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 (Céline's fur baby) she will likely greet you at the door with a toy, she loves cuddles and kiddies. Speaking of..

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?
