Meraki Official Custom wedding dress bridal


After visiting a number of bridal stores, I was unable to find anything that flattered my figure and was unique. Once I visited Alvin at Meraki that all changed. I have quite literally never been so excited about a dress. Alvin was a dream to work with. He is patient, understanding and knew exactly what would work - that white shoulder strap was the perfect detail! The dress was everything I was hoping for and more. I felt like a princess, model and solid 10 all in one day. My celebrant said it was the dress of the year and my photographer said it was my “other husband”! I am still getting compliments a month later. I will be eternally grateful to Alvin and the team at Meraki for creating the dress of my dreams.

I knew from the beginning I wanted Meraki to custom make my wedding dress. As soon as I mentioned I wanted a big bow to Alvin his eyes lit up and I knew I was in the right hands! Walking into every appointment was made easy with his laid back approach and can do nature. Nothing was off limits. Every fitting there was a new detail and we could change as we went along.They created a dress that you can’t find off the rack and I felt like a bride but with my own personal style as every detail I had been involved with from start to finish.
Everyone comments, “That bow!” Its unique drama and simplicity was everything I wanted.Turning dreams into reality!! Thankyou x

The whole experience was truly special. Alvin was the first person I met when choosing my wedding dress and after the initial meeting I cancelled my other appointments. I knew I wanted him to design and make my wedding dress. He listened to what I want and also what I didn’t want. He explained everything as you went so you knew during each fitting what was going to be done. Each fitting my Mum and Grandma came and Alvin made us feel so welcome. At no point was it stressful which as a bride is exactly what you want. I absolutely loved my dress. It was beyond anything I had envisioned and can’t thank and recommend Alvin enough.

Alvin provided an amazing experience the entire way through, making sure every detail of the dress was how I wanted and always being open to changes at any stage. 

I really valued the input of his professional knowledge and found he could bring exactly what I had in my head to life. 

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a custom gown. Thank-you so much for everything!

Alvin and his team at Meraki Official made my dream wedding dress. I came with an idea and the team listened with extreme attention to detail. Nothing was too difficult or too unreasonable. Every idea I had was met with a ‘can do attitude’.  I want the biggest shoulder pads known to man Alvin, “Sure, but we’ll make it look tasteful.” I want a long cape, but still want to be able to dance at the end of the night Alvin, “Sure, we’ll make it detachable.” There’s nothing they can’t do.

Having my wedding dress created by Alvin was such a wonderful experience. After months of a futile search for my dream wedding dress, when I asked Alvin to help design my dress, I was immediately filled with confidence that he was going to help make my dream come true. Alvin made me feel so comfortable discussing things with him, and was always so flexible with fitting times, which took all the stress away from planning a wedding while working away in Bunbury. He goes the extra mile to ensure that every detail is done to perfection and that I am 100% happy with the dress. And the product, is a dream dress that I absolutely loved, and I really couldn’t have been happier!


Alvin there are no words to say how grateful I am for you. You created a dress that fit me perfectly for my perfect day, you calmed me and made me feel at such ease during the process. 

Thank you for all your time and effort in creating this dress.
