Modern mindful brides;

here’s how to find your dream designer wedding dress.

Our mission is to help you look good, feel good and do good with a curated selection of designer wedding gowns for an affordable price.

If you’ve already begun the hunt for your dream dress, you might have noticed that bridal gowns can be — let’s face it — really expensive.

Ironically, the dress you wear the least in your life might end up being the priciest piece of clothing you ever buy.

Here at barefaced bridal

we do things a little differently...

Barefaced Bridal is a boutique located in Cronulla, Southern Sydney.

Our in-store boutique offers ready to wear sample gowns and preloved designer dresses with absolutely no order time. These off-the-rack dresses are available in store to try on and peruse, ready to take home the very same day.

Showcasing our expansive collection in-store takes the stress out of searching online for your wedding dress while saving you time and money. Perfect if you’re on a short timeframe (elopement anyone?) or don’t want to wait the months it can take for your dress to arrive.

In addition, we have a unique selection of sustainable designer brands offering our brides a made-to-order service should you desire to purchase a brand new gown. These Australian and international designers that we’ve partnered with align with our ethical aesthetic and quality standards, so you can be sure you’re getting the very best value.

If you’re located out of the area, interstate or overseas or would prefer an online service we offer our entire collection available to purchase via our online shop.

If you’re a modern bride who is ethically eco-minded and conscious about waste or simply wanting a ready-to-wear gown on a specific price point, then you’re in the right place.


We pride ourselves on offering a variety of choice with the greatest value for our brides. We understand that no two brides are the same, and thus our exclusive collection is ever-evolving.

Whether it’s a one-off sample from a top bridal designers’ current collection, a lightly or barely worn preloved couture gown or a carefully curated vintage dress, we strive to give our brides the option to take home a dress that speaks to them.

through your experience with barefaced bridal

a few magical things happen

No order time

1. You'll save a lot of time and money

We have an expansive collection of designer gowns, which means that you can be certain there is a size and shape you’ll fall in love with. Because our gowns are purchased as-is off-the-rack you’re guaranteed to find a steal that fits within your budget. This is perfect if you're working within a short timeframe and need to take home a gown that very same day!

Ethical Consumption

3. You’ll contribute to greater sustainability, rather than adding to wedding industry waste.

By choosing a sample, preloved or never been worn gown, you can enjoy your wedding day knowing you've helped to reduce the impact on the planet. By giving new life and love to a preloved treasure you're contributing to the eco-ethical bridal movement by minimising waste - spread that love all around!

Recoup Your costs

4. You’ll make another bride’s day by helping her recoup wedding costs.

Join the high vibe energy of brides who have come before you and make one woman’s day by helping her recoup wedding expenses. At Barefaced Bridal, each of our gowns look and feel gorgeously clean and new. There’s absolutely no downside! Also, in a few months you might actually be the bride happy to pass her gown on and get some hard-earned cash back.

Expert Guidance

2. You will be treated to a premium and private experience

Established industry experts coupled with business owner Melanie's own experience, who has an intimate awareness of what you’re feeling because she was once in your shoes. An eco-conscious consumer and once savyy seller who sold her dress to recoup some cash from her wedding, Melanie understands how to support brides and provide priceless guidance on a style right for you.
