Discover the secret of Melbourne’s chic brides in High Street Armadale: the home to all things bridal and beautiful


Nestled in the heart of Armadale in Melbourne’s south-east, High Street is Melbourne’s premier shopping district for brides-tobe. Spanning from Glenferrie to Orrong road, this bustling precinct is the first (and often the only) destination for brides who are out hunting and gathering all of their wedding essentials.

Scattered amongst 285 unique stores are some of Australia’s top bridal couturiers, from Connie Simonetti to Collette Dinnigan. Spoilt for choice, brides may be daunted by the endless array of stunning gowns. Fortunately, these illustrious stores have your perfect wedding dress just waiting for you and their talented vendors can help you find it, with their wealth of knowledge and experience.

Once you have your gown sorted, High Street has all the trimmings for your wedding. From jewellery and lingerie to menswear and high-end fashion stores, the stylish array of boutiques will beckon you. On a day down High Street, brides will find inspiration not only in bridal stores, but in unexpected places like art galleries or charming antique stores. So don’t be afraid to get wonderfully lost in Armadale’s fashionable haunts; you never know what you might find.

If shopper’s fatigue is beginning to set in, choose from myriad trendy coffee houses and stylish restaurants to take a short break and bask in the relaxed ambience and sophistication of High Street. Be sure to make some time for a little bit of indulgence with a massage or manicure. A visit to one of the street’s luxurious beauty specialists will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of High Street.

The street’s motto is “expect the best”, so it comes as no surprise that visitors are bestowed with the royal treatment. Every merchant, from the couturiers to the baristas, will welcome you with a warm smile and leave you spoilt for choice in their store. For all those brides who dream of feeling like a princess, you are in good company. Princess Mary is one of High Street’s devotees. Spotted at this bridal haven in the lead up to her royal wedding, Mary was seen fl itting in and out of the finest boutiques to uncover their hidden gems. If it’s good enough for Mary, it’s good enough for us!

With your walking shoes on and bridal party in tow, journey through Armadale’s bridal hub with the help of Complete Wedding’s guide to High Street’s finest wedding suppliers.
