– LISA JAY the right thing, only to find we were ab­so­lutely packed.”

They of­fer gowns of all shapes and sizes off the rack, with prices rang­ing from $399 to $3000.

“Most sell for about $1500, the $3000 is just for one par­tic­u­lar dress with Swarovski crys­tals,” Ms Jay said.

“Hav­ing to pay $5000 for a dress is pa­thetic. We keep prices down and show you can still have a gor­geous dress.”

All gowns in the store are de­signed and styled by Ms Jay, who has the gowns made over­seas.

Since open­ing, she said she had pro­vided dresses to more than 200 brides.

Her shop also stocks a range of ac­ces­sories from veils, tiaras and other head pieces.

“We also of­fer a few months lay-by to help our brides who can’t pay it all on one day,” she said.

While Ms Jay is yet to walk the aisle her­self, her leap into the bri­dal industry was one she calls fate.

“I re­mem­ber seven years ago walk­ing into a bri­dal shop with my cousin and think­ing I needed to be there,” she said.
