Unique, modern and beautiful. Each KAREN WILLIS HOLMES wedding dress perfectly balances and encompasses all 3, even though every collection and style in our range is oh-so different. Karen’s designs are made to showcase who you are as a person and the tone you want to give off as a bride. That’s why every KAREN WILLS HOLMES wedding dress is distinct and breathtaking.

Karen understands what modern-day brides are searching for: a look that no one else has, a dress that feels like it was made just for them, and a contemporary look but one that still has that magical, bridal feeling.

By combining impeccable fit with the highest quality fabrics, KAREN WILLIS HOLMES gowns are not only figure-flattering and gorgeous, but also comfortable and made to an exquisite standard.

Choosing your wedding gown and your complete bridal look is what sets the tone for your big day. It’s how you get to add a touch of your own personal flair and feel like the best version of yourself.

With so many styles of wedding dresses to choose from, it’s important to keep in mind what you personally want out of your look and exactly how you want to feel.

From our edgy, new-take-on-bridal ELOPE collection to our contemporary, sparkling LUXE line, our soft and romantic-bohemian WILD HEARTS & CURVE collections to our customisable, classic-with-a-twist BESPOKE line, Karen designs gowns for every taste and aesthetic; every kind of wedding imaginable.

Whether you’re having a casual, low key elopement or intimate wedding and looking for a down-to-earth feel, or if you’re hosting a black-tie, extravagant affair in the heart of a big city and are looking for a wedding dress that matches your formal vision; our gowns pair beautifully with either, plus every type of wedding in between.

With an array of unique fabrics (beading, mesh, modern laces, superior quality satins) and so many different silhouettes and necklines within our collections, you’ll surely have no trouble finding looks that suit you perfectly when you visit one of our boutiques or stockists.

Our designs range across the board from the most figure-hugging fit and flares to ever-so-flattering A-line skirts; plunging V-necklines to sophisticated high necks; romantic and strapless to elegant with long sleeves. All of our brides are unique and want to show off individuality, so naturally, our wedding dresses do just that.

Our dresses are, of course, stunning on their own, but we love when our brides make their looks unforgettable by pairing their gown with a contemporary wedding veil or detachable bridal train.

If you’re looking for something never-seen-before and want to set the tone for your ceremony and then do it all over again for your incredible reception, changing your look and feeling like you have two gowns in one is the perfect way to achieve this.

Your accessories and how you style your look for your big day are what makes your wedding dress your own.

I Don't Live Near a KWH Boutique or Stockist, How can I Purchase a KWH Gown or Obtain Expert Advice?

If you don’t live near a KWH boutique, contact our customer service team directly and we will have a solution for you to secure your dream gown. Our team can also offer you styling advice via phone or email. Feel free to contact them on +61 2 9519 3901 or info@karenwillisholmes.com. 

What if I Have a Short Timeline?

We do carry stock of some gowns in-house, or we can sometimes make an ELOPE or BESPOKE gown in much shorter timeframes if we have all the fabric and time in our production calendar to fit your order in. As well, our LUXE line is a ready-to-wear line which means we can work with a shorter time frame as long as your desired gown is in stock. While we can work with shorter time frames, we always recommend a longer timeline, as having a shorter one will limit what is available to you. 

If you have a short time frame, please contact us on info@karenwillisholmes.com or + 61 2 9519 3901 to discuss your options. 

Will I Need Alterations?

Alterations are expected and essential for the finishing touches to any gown and will make the gown truly yours. When purchasing a gown, we take your body measurements to help determine the closest standard size to your body based on our size chart. However, alterations are needed to fine-tune for fit and to your personal preference. Whether that means taking in a gown to make it smaller for your hips, bust, or waist (or maybe everywhere), adding cups, shortening straps, hemming the length, and adding in the bustle for your train, alterations are a standard part of the whole process. 

How do I Style a KAREN WILLIS HOLMES Wedding Dress?

Our wedding dresses look fabulous when styled with our veils and detachable wedding skirt trains. While some brides choose to wear both, or just one or the other, an addition of either can truly complete your look. Adding a veil makes your look feel unmistakably bridal, while the addition of a removable train gives you a bold transition from ceremony to reception and adds femininity and unique style to your wedding look. 

What defines a KAREN WILLIS HOLMES Wedding Dress?

Unique, modern and beautiful. Each KAREN WILLIS HOLMES wedding dress perfectly balances and encompasses all 3, even though every collection and style in our range is oh-so different. Karen’s designs are made to showcase who you are as a person and the tone you want to give off as a bride. That’s why every KAREN WILLS HOLMES wedding dress is distinct and breathtaking. 

Karen understands what modern-day brides are searching for: a look that no one else has, a dress that feels like it was made just for them, and a contemporary look but one that still has that magical, bridal feeling. 

By combining impeccable fit with the highest quality fabrics, KAREN WILLIS HOLMES gowns are not only figure-flattering and gorgeous, but also comfortable and made to an exquisite standard. 

Where can I try on KWH Dresses in Person?

Have you fallen in love with one of our handmade wedding dresses? We have boutiques across Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and a flagship boutique in New York where you can work with our dedicated bridal stylists and try on your KWH favourites. You can also visit one of our many stockists across the globe if our boutiques are not in your area.  

What is the Lead Time for a KWH Dress?

Gowns from the ELOPE & BESPOKE collections are made in Australia and are made to order to a standard size- whatever size you measure closest to at the time of your appointment. We recommend a booking lead time of 6 – 8 months, however, because we make these gowns in our own workroom we can sometimes work with shorter time frames. 

Gowns from the LUXE collection are sold from stock or available for pre-order. Due to the nature of this collection the gowns are sold on a first come first serve basis. 

Gowns from the WILD HEARTS & CURVE collections are made in Australia and our recommended lead time is 4 months from your wedding date, plus time for alterations.
