I just wanted to say a massive Thank You for everything you all did to make me feel beautiful on my wedding day. From the very first experience at the Stones Corner Store to picking up my dress, I felt so comfortable. My dress was stunning – absolutely perfect and more than I could have ever dreamt! A million Thank Yous wouldn’t be enough, honestly. It’s like you knew what I’d always wanted and had in mind and created it for me. It was more than perfect.

Thank You, Courtney x

I would just like to say a big thank you to Tammie and the team at Elizabeth De Varga.

From when I first tried on dresses at your Stones Corner store I knew that I would be getting a quality dress. I just want to thank you for the amazing customer service you guys gave me every time I came in to try and choose a dress. I couldn’t believe that when I said I lived closer to Maroochydore than Stones Corner that you guys offered to take my dress ‘Lily’ to Maroochydore so that I could try it on once again, show my family and make my final decision. You were all wonderful to work with and made me feel so welcome at every fitting

Tammie, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for helping me decide how I could add a touch of Bling to the ‘Lily’ gown and I must say you got it spot on with the belt detail! I absolutely loved it and got so many compliments on it on the day.

Nothing was too much for you ladies and you really made the whole experience so stress free and most of all enjoyable.

Once again thank you all so very much for creating me my perfect dress! It was all I had hoped for and more.

Kind Regards
Leah Doveston (Cabrera)

I wanted to share a photo of me in my beautiful dress on my wedding day. Thank you so much to Tammy from the Stones Corner store, you truly are an absolutely delightful person. My dress was simply stunning. Funny that at first I was not interested in trying it on, but my Mum wanted me to so I did it for her. But as soon as I put the dress on, I did not want to take it off.  I got goosebumps, I got teary, I felt comfortable. And I have to say, I really did feel and look beautiful on the day.  So thanks!!!!!

Dear Elizabeth De Varga Team,

Thank you for providing me with the most beautiful dress for my wedding day! From the get go, your service was second to none and you followed through with that right up until the pick up point. Leonie, who I dealt with most, was lovely and caring and so particular with ensuring every detail was just perfect. Being a perfectionist myself, I really appreciated it and wouldn’t have wanted to work with anyone else. I can only hope that every other bride who is involved with Elizabeth De Varga is as happy as I am and was with my dress, veil and jewellery!

I have attached a few photos incase you’re interested in seeing the end result on the day of our wedding – 16th February 2013.

Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart….

Hello Tammie

Just wanted to touch base with some photos of our wedding held on 11 October 2013 at Flaxton Gardens in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Thank you so much with all your work in making my beautiful gown. The feedback I received from Guests and wedding suppliers was amazing. Everyone loved the colour and design. My veil and head piece was also amazing and it all looked wonderful on the day.

With the dress pretty much the focal point of the whole day it’s a pretty important aspect and I was over the moon to receive my photos last week and see just how amazingly it all came together.

Thank you again.

Hi Tammie
It is hard to believe that I walked down the aisle in my gorgeous EDV dress nearly 3 moths ago!
Thank you for all of your support in the lead up to my bigday during my trips to Brisbane from Canberra.
Attached are a few pics of the gorgeous ‘Lillyanna’.
Many thanks again.

Hi Tammie and Team

Apologies for my delayed note. I wanted to thank you for my dress.  I was at a loss when I couldn’t find a dress that I loved and was thrilled when you agreed to make my dress based on a picture I had.

I know there was a bit of trial and error in getting it right but it was well worth the effort.

I absolutely loved it. I was so disappointed when I had to take it off at the end of the day. I wish I could wear it again. I had so many comments on the day about how elegant it was including ‘The best wedding dress I have ever seen’

I have attached some photos for you.

Just wanted to send some pics through of me wearing my beautiful dress! Thankyou so much for all your help. From when I first stepped in to your Stones Corner store to the day I collected my altered dress, you have all been so fabulous to work with. Friendly
and professional. I felt amazing in my dress… and received so many comments about how beautiful it was! My little flower girl was also very much in love with her “princess dress” and looked the part. Thank you again… I will be recommending you to anyone I encounter that needs a wedding dress!

Last night Andrew and I had our engagement party and surprised everyone by getting MARRIED!
It was 15 weeks ago that Andy asked me to marry him, and during 10 weeks of planning, we shared our secret with few.
Our day was perfect, and exactly how we wanted it to be – fun, fabulous and ours.
Having those who are near and dear to us there was all we wanted. There were many who couldn’t make it, yet we know they were there celebrating with us in spirit.

Thank you for making such a gorgeous gown. Although I purchased it ‘off the rack’ here in Perth, I feel like it was meant to be mine. I absolutely loved wearing it, and which i could wear it again!

Joel-Kat-Wedding390To the team at Elizabeth de Varga, Maroochydore and Brisbane stores,

I always knew that I wanted to wear one of Elizabeth de Varga’s amazing dresses even before I was engaged.  Once I became engaged, I was in Maroochydore for the weekend and walked into your store to begin the process of trying on wedding dresses.  I was a little worried about how I should know which dress was “the one”.  I tried on two dresses and immediately fell in love with the first dress I tried on, the Honour gown.  I paid for the dress and veil that day! All of my fittings with your Brisbane store were handled with the upmost professionalism and made me feel very well looked after and special.  I had the gown altered to add the stunning sleeves that matched the veil, without any problems at all.  I cannot recommend you enough to my friends, not only because you are my favourite Australian wedding dress designer, but also because you have amazing gowns and service.  I felt so special in my dress on my wedding day and had so many comments on the day and continue to receive comments on my dress.  Someone at my wedding even wanted to buy my dress off me but I wanted to keep it, as it is very special to me.

My wedding day was on 28 July 2012, which we had in Samoa.  My husband is half Samoan, half Australian and after I visited Samoa 3 times prior to the wedding, I knew Sinalei Reef Resort and Spa in Samoa was the place for us to have our wedding.  We did not have the traditional Samoan village wedding, however we had many Samoan cultural aspects at our wedding such as me arriving at the wedding on a canoe across the ocean with a conch shell and drums beating in the background, traditional Samoan prayers and speeches, I said a formal speech in Samoan (which I learnt in secret and was a surprise to my new husband), we had traditional Samoan dancers and a siva afi (the famous Samoan fire dance), along with our own samoan siva’s (dances) and hand carved mini kava bowls filled with coconut chocolates as wedding favours.  All the wedding food was 5 star, made from local Samoan ingredients and an absolute delight.  We had approximately 120 guests from all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA etc.  We finished off the wedding celebrations with a four day tour with all of our guests of all the best sites of Samoa as a thank you to our guests for making the journey over to share our special day.  Our wedding was the best day of our lives and many of our guests also commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and their best holiday yet!

Just wanted to let you know that our wedding on 3rd May was absolutely beautiful, and I knocked everyone for six in my beautiful gown. My 8 year old niece even started crying! I felt fabulous, my husband was blown away and my dad was pretty much speechless. Thank you for all your hard work in creating beautiful gowns for girls like me!
Enjoy the pics and good luck for the future.
Kind regards, Amy

rr072-LargeHello ladies at EDV,
Hope you are going well and busy designing your gorgeous gowns.
As promised, Steve and myself (Ivana) would love to share a few images with you from
our wedding 03/12/2011 at the Glengariff Historic Estate.
Our day was just perfect, everyone (including myself) was so relaxed and enjoyed themselves incredibly. I felt like a princess, honestly the whole day was like a fairytale we didn’t want it to end…. :).
I hope you love our images as much as we do, we can’t stop looking at them and are about to put a few of those on our walls :).

PS: I am keeping my dress as I looooooooooove it so much –  and worn it a few times since our wedding (only dancing around our house though) lol

KB_0877Hi Team @ Elizabeth Devarga! Love your
new website– great work!  I’m a huge fan and am happy to say that I was one of the lucky brides who had the pleasure of wearing your gorgeous creation on my wedding day 18th October, 2008.  It was the
perfect dress for the perfect day.  It had excellent structure, fine attention to detail and was stunning.  It reflected my own style and made me feel like the elegant woman I wished to be on that day.  Needless to say, the husband was quite happy with my choice as well– excellent bonus.

I’ve subsequently had two friends purchase Devarga dresses once they were introduced.  You just can’t beat the detail, thought, craftsmenship and excellent fabrics.  I joke with my husband about getting married again and again just so I can enjoy all of the different dresses I love so much from your designs and we keep having gusts insist on doing it all again as well. I look forward to owning another gown somewhere down the line… some special occasion will surely call for another exquisite creation.

I’m tucking one more in here to show off one of the real reasons I loved my dress so very much!  Georgette panel?  Beautiful beading?  Awesome satin?  Amazing structure and design?  Stunning style?  Sure… those are all wonderful elements– but does it spin well?!  Can you dance up a storm?!  You bet!  Thanks again. Kristina

Hi Ladies. I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for the beautiful “Karissa

dress you made for me….I loved wearing it and I still can’t stop looking at it on a daily basis. From the first day I stepped into your boutique at Broadway on the Mall, your staff have been extremely professional and lovely to deal with and I’m so glad I got a chance to check out your new store at Stones Corner – which is just beautiful.

As promised, here are a few pics from our wedding day – which was the best day ever! All the best, Helen

EPSON scanner imageJust a little note to let you know how thrilled I was to wear one of your beautiful gowns!  The girls were wonderful with the fittings and adjustments, they were very attentive.  I wanted lace straps on my gown, they sewed on the most beautiful lace for me, it was vintage and feminine.  I decided not to wear a veil, but at the last fitting I decided to try one on, it looked stunning with my gown, and the girls were only too happy to make one for me. thank you again for a stress free time and for creating the wedding dress of my dreams.

ps. my cousin came over for our wedding, she got married ten years ago, she loved, loved, loved my dress, and told her it was a elizebeth de varga,  well!!!! Guess what, her wedding dress was an elizebeth de varga also!

 I had so many comments from friends and family on just how beautiful the dress was, and I loved every minute of wearing it!

AJ_Image-787Dear Elizabeth De Varga team, I can’t thank you enough for designing my beautiful wedding dress! From the first moment I walked into your store, I could not believe how gorgeous the gowns were and the amount of detail on each one. When I tried one of the gowns on, I knew immediately it was the one and I had to have it!

My dress was absolutely perfect and it made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. I received so many compliments on how stunning the dress was. It was the perfect dress for a perfect day!! I will not hesitate to recommend you to any future brides. Thanks once again! Angela

Hi Tammie and the team at Elizabeth de Varga,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my gorgeous bridal gown (‘Corrina’ in latte) which I wore on my wedding 21/3/15.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tammie when she was in Adelaide at Bridal on Pultney and wanted to personally pass on my thanks.
I felt like a princess in my dress, the detail was amazing and it seemed to change colour in different lights- I loved it and I was so sad when I had to take it off at the end of the day with the knowledge that a bridal gown is only (meant) to be worn once!!
Thank you again,

To all the team at Elizabeth deVarga Designs, I just wanted to thank everyone who worked on my wedding gown, especially at such short notice, for New Years Eve. It was absolutely beautiful! Just what I wanted, especially the lace you found for me, as you know I was very particular about the type of lace, and you found the perfect piece. I received so many compliments on my gown, I felt very special wearing it. Again, thank you so much, everyone was lovely to work with, I felt very at ease with the whole process. I need to come up with a reason to wear my gown again! Kind Regards, Linda

I would like to say Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for me for our wedding. From your amazing service every single time I stepped in your shop to the designing of my absolutely stunning wedding dress, I can not thankyou enough. My dress was and still is the most amazing dress I have ever worn and I still get so many comments on how stunning it was and how the dress was ‘So Me’, it was just perfect.
For a girl whom was extremely nervous about the whole dress process, I could not have asked for a better team of ladies to assist me with every single question and request I had. I will forever recommend you to every new bride I know! You helped make the day I married my best friend the most amazing day ever!

218987_4285272864275_870316385_oI would just like to thank the staff and dress makers from Elizabeth De Varga Stones corner for not only making my dream wedding dress a piece of art, but for the amazing customer service and compassion. I think also people are quick to point out bad customer service but not often enough are people recognised and thanked for great customer care and service.

Right from the second I walked into Elizabeth De Varga (then still situated in Brisbane
Mall), I was warmly welcomed and taken care of. I felt no pressure to have to buy the dress I tried on, but the quality spoke for itself and the fact that I could create and add to the dress that was designed just for me was just the icing on the cake.

At each fitting the care and attention to detail to make sure everything was just right, was a great feeling and made the whole process very enjoyable and was one less thing that I had to stress about for the big day.

On the date of my final fitting the staff where so wonderful as my son had just had a brain injury the week prior and I was feeling extremely emotional and reluctant to even try my dress on. But they were so sympathetic, helped make a time to suit me after we could leave the hospital and where just so lovely.

So, Thank you to each and every one of you who made my dress and experience at Elizabeth De Varga one I will most defiantly cherish and remember.

Warmest Regards Larrissa

Tammie & Janie, I cannot tell you how delighted I am with my dress, it was pure perfection, everybody told me it was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen. For you to turn my vision into a reality was a magical experience for me and Tammie driving all the way out on Friday to put the finishing touch on my dress was so very appreciated. From Concept to completion, I was impressed with the level of service and every appointment I was made to feel like I was the most important girl in the world. Robbie’s jaw fell to the ground when he saw my dress and he could not stop telling me how beautiful I looked and how amazing my dress was. Thank you for everything, much love, Amanda

Hi, I brought my Elizabeth de Varga ‘Taylor’ dress and I could not have been happier with it. Thankyou for creating such a perfect gown! We were married in Echuca, Victoria on the banks of the Murray River. I wanted a dress that would compliment the location and the country, vintage theme we had. I could not have been happier with my dress….it was so comfortable and I felt really beautiful. I felt like this design had been made for me. The day was in every way possible perfect

Hello to Di, and the AMAZING team at Elizabeth de Varga! I just wanted to say a massive big THANK YOU for my beautiful gown. I loved it so much, and I was so sad once the day was over, knowing that I couldn’t wear it again. It fit like a glove, and was everything I could have wished for and more! I also just LOVED the matching head piece that was made to go with. Thank you again, if only I could wear it again, and again, and again. Much love, Mia xx
