Wedding Dresses & Eventware


We have a physical store in Motueka, just 30 minutes away from Nelson in
the South Island.

Any NZ stocked items will be overnight couriered with courier post.
As long as you are not rural your gown should arrive within 2 working
days. To be sure that the gown you order is located in NZ please check
that it says 'Express NZ wide' at the end of the title.

We are located at 265 High Street in Motueka, across the road from The Warehouse.  We are in the arcade just opposite the iconic Motueka Crystal Shop.

We are open for walk ins on Tuesday 10am to 6pm Wednesday 10am to 4pm, Thursday 10am to 6pm, Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to 12pm. Saturday afternoons are reserved for appointments only from 1pm to 4pm. There is a $30 fee for your exclusive booking on Saturday from 1pm to 4pm, which will be deducted from any gown purchase made on the day. Book here.

We are closed Sunday and Monday

(Our online shop is open 24/7 365.)

We accept returns for store credit only. 

If your event is time-sensitive, we can send up to three gowns and offer you a refund for two of the
returned gowns *.  There is a $10 fee per gown for this service, so your refund would be in full, less $10 for each returned dress. 

You would also need to cover the return postage.  We cannot offer this service if you wish to use Afterpay or Lay-by, sorry.

* Terms and conditions apply. Please see our return policy in full here.

We've actually had to raise our prices due to the increase of
shipping costs from our suppliers.  Still, we can order in bulk and pass those savings on to you.

We courier our New Zealand stocked gowns via Courier Post. They usually arrive to our customers within one to four business days depending on if you are rural or not.

Please plan accordingly.

BUY TO TRY (New Zealand customers only)

Bay Bridal and Ballgowns is now offering 'Buy to Try'. 

Sometimes time is of the essence, and you may find your event approaching quicker than you expected. It isn't always easy buying online, so this is our offer to you:

You may order 2 to 3 gowns. (please note that this offer excludes infinity gowns, our Premium Bridal Range and Clearance gowns)

Return any number of the gowns but please note that you will receive a store credit for the lowest priced gown and then a refund less $10 per dress, plus any associated fees from purchases made via credit card, Afterpay or Lay by, (bank transfer does not incur any fees) for the others. Unfortunately, these fees are not refunded to our business when we apply a refund. 

There is no time limit on the store credit.

Return the gowns within 5 working days of receiving your package with tags still attached. You will also need to cover the return postage fee.

When using this service, please put in the notes section of your order 'Buy to Try'
