After trying on over 18 dresses at other stores, I couldn’t find anything that suited. Plus all of the stores had very large dresses and no option to try on my actual size. I came across Goddess By Nature on Instagram, and flew to Brisbane and made an appointment with my Bridesmaids at GBN. The dresses there were all in my size, which was a huge help. They all fit me like a glove. I fell in love with two. The bottom part of the Eliza gown and the top part of the Breanna gown. I asked GBN if they could merge the two, and they said they could. This is how my Goddess By Nature Melanie gown came to be. There was another dress from another designer that looked very similar to what I wanted, however after terrible service at other dress stores and amazing service at Goddess By Nature, I wanted them to be the ones to make my gown.
When I flew down to Brisbane to go wedding dress shopping I only booked 3 fittings as I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by trying on so many dresses. My first fitting was with GBN and every dress was tailored to perfection, hugging my body perfectly and accentuating my curves. I was obsessed with two dresses, the shape of one and the material of another so Elaine mentioned that GBN does customized dresses and it is possible to create. Having this option gave me the opportunity to create a dress perfect for me, my body and my special day.
I stumbled across GBN on Instagram and fell in love immediately. I then discovered the Lydia Gown and searched all the local bridal shops for that dress, there was nothing even remotely similar or even close to as beautiful. One day I was at work and I got a notification from a bridal shop in Toronto, and there it was: “Goddess by Nature Trunk Show” — conveniently the same Sunday that I already had an appointment to try gowns on at THAT boutique (talk about meant to be!). One look in person, on the hanger (not even on my body yet) and I knew: that was my dress.
I actually fell in love with my Goddess By Nature gown by accident. I had a malfunction with my first dress, so I had to go dress shopping for a new one a month before my wedding. I went to Unbridaled in Houston TX, hoping for a miracle, and that’s when I fell in love with my Thalia Gown! I wish I had just gone there first!
Goddess By Nature Vivienne Gown| I tried on so many dresses and didn’t like any of them – I was super discouraged but then I found the Vivienne dress I fell in love immediately. The dress is absolutely stunning and the quality is unmatched. It’s extremely comfy too which was a huge plus! Couldn’t recommend this designer enough. 🙂
I tried on 4 dresses prior to my dream dress. Then when I put on my GBN dress I just knew! I didn’t want to take it off. I just felt so beautiful wearing it! I was told I had to try on more dresses just to be sure so I did and I just couldn’t stop thinking about the GBN dress! It was perfect!
My sister organised an appointment at GBN in Brisbane. I browsed the website prior the appointment, although I was still unsure of what style I loved. I tried on two dresses and I liked them both. It wasn’t until I put on the Eliza gown and instantly I loved it! I walked out to show my mum and bridesmaids and they all cheered (my mum was in [happy] tears – I think it only just hit her that I was actually getting married). We paired it with a veil and I felt like a true bride.
Words cannot express how much I love this company! The dresses are so extremely detailed, and so much care is put into designing and making these dresses. I fell in love with the Venice dress when I saw it posted in GBN’s wedding dress giveaway contest. I entered and hoped that it I would be the winner, and that that dress would be the one (and it was!). After winning, GBN was so supportive and helpful in choosing the details of the dress – like the lace color, underlay color, train size, etc. Every girl pictures her wedding dress experience to be in a store, trying on gowns, and choosing the one. GBN made it so easy to buy a dress without trying it on, and helping me picture what would look best for me. I even last minute asked to change my dress, but they re-assured me I choose the right one – and I did! I am so in love with the low back, detailed lace, elegant train, and beaded straps on the Venice gown. I couldn’t have pictured my wedding day in any other dress. Thank you to everyone at GBN for helping make my wedding day so magical.
The Thalia gown was absolutely stunning and everyone complimented the gown on our big day! I went to only one bridal boutique and it was not originally one of the dresses I picked out. The lady from Unbridaled in Austin brought me the gown to try on and it was immediately the one! I thought it was the perfect blend of sexy and romantic. The lace and low cut back are perfect to accentuate your figure and give you a very classic and glamorous look. I had to do very little alterations mostly just the length and bustle. It photographed so beautifully and the lace detail along the side appears organic and weightless tracing the outline of the top down to the low back.
I completely fell in love with the Thalia Gown by Goddess By Nature the moment I put it on. Unbridaled, in Austin, Texas was my last bridal shop stop for the day. I actually had a completely different dress that I was going to go back for after this stop. However, I really wanted a dress with off the shoulder straps, and the dress that I was going to go back for did not have them. When I tried on the THALIA dress, I first fell in love with the train. It is long and beautifully made, with intricate lace details. I also really loved the way that it formed to my body. It was the perfect fit! The only thing that it was lacking was the off the shoulder straps. Just for fun, I asked if I could see what it would look like with some lace around my arms. Surprisingly, it was PERFECT and I had to know if there was a way to make this dream dress a reality. Thankfully, GBN was able to customize the dress to make it exactly what I wanted and exactly what I had envisioned.
When Ifirst laid eyes on the Lydia gown in blush I knew Ihad to have this gown. I messaged Goddess By Nature and they put me in the right direction straight away. Any questions I had they answered me promptly. I could not reccommend them highly enough!! My dream dress was everything I could have ever wanted and more. Thank you again so much for all your help and designing the most amazing gowns!!!
Well… where do I start? My gorgeous husband proposed to me in Santorini, the scene couldn’t have been any more spectacular.
From the moment we got engaged I had seen the Vivienne gown pop up in my facebook feed, this must have been some sort of sign,
but it was the only dress I had my eyes on and it felt like love at first sight. I waited from October to April to see if my feelings would change.
Keep in mind, I didn’t go anywhere else to look or try dresses on, I was certain that this was the dress for me.
I got in touch with Elaine in April, Elaine had phoned me and also communicated with me via email! It was a big leap to spend that much
money on a dress without trying it on, but Elaine made me feel assured that everything would work out well and it would fit me perfectly – which it did,
with a few minor alterations.
I live in Dunedin, and on the off chance I was visiting Brisbane for a few days, I contacted Elaine the day before I arrived and she had managed
to get me in to try on the Vivienne gown! How lucky was I?
Thank you so much Elaine and the team at Goddess by Nature, I did feel like a goddess on the day, so thank you! xx
I always knew I wanted to wear a long sleeved, lace dress for our special day. The Selena dress appeared on my Instagram feed and automatically knew I had to try her. The Goddess By Nature brand was not stocked in Adelaide but like some kind of fate, the wonderful people at Bridal Fusion by Mascia were about to stock the brand and the Selena dress. I tried her on and knew this was the one – my very first dress fitting and the search had ended. The Selena dress was for me!
Thank you for making me the most beautiful wedding dress – one that made me look far more goddess-like than I ever could have thought possible! I was so thrilled when you said you would be happy to make my Dahlia gown in ivory and with a full lining. I know that was probably a bit of a task, but I think you’ll agree that it turned out to be pretty amazing!
I saw this dress in the window of the boutique I was trying on dresses in. It was the first dress that I tried on and knew immediately it was the one. It fit like a glove! I was so fortunate that day because GBN was having a trunk show in the boutique and would be leaving the shop only a few days later. I immediately decided to buy the dress. I never would have thought I would get so many compliments on my dress, but everyone at my wedding gushed over it.
I felt so much pressure to find the perfect dress. I tried on so many before finding my Dahlia Gown. I knew that I wanted something simple, effortless and comfortable. But by the end of my search, I was quickly running out of time. When I tried on Dahlia at Savvy Brides in Sydney, I actually bought it on impulse because if I didn’t get a dress soon, I would be getting married with no dress! Not overthinking it was actually the best decision I made, because in the end I found a dress that was just…me.
The moment I said “YES” to the dress, and knew instantly it was the one (plus a few others I tried on but didn’t make the cut). It was the first one I put on, and the last one I took off. I am obsessed and in love with the Thalia gown by Goddess By Nature.
I was shopping for months for my dream gown, I had a really specific idea in mind so each dress I tried on wasn’t perfect. When I saw the GBN Vivienne gown online, I loved the style and the so much, I considered flying to Brisbane from Sydney to try it on. But after chatting to Elaine from GBN, she shipped a sample of the gown to Savvy Brides in Double Bay, which was amazing! When I tried it on I just knew it was everything I wanted. It had a low back and a low v-neck front, I was able to customise the lining and tulle colours to a dark tan/nude which was what I was looking for. The subtle sequins on the applique gave the dress a bit of a glimmer and the intricate floral applique was stunning. I ordered my gown then and there! I kept in contact with the GBN team and ordered a custom veil that had the same lace appliqués – she understood exactly what I wanted and matched it perfectly with the gown.
I cannot thank goddess by nature enough for my gown. I felt like a true goddess all day and was being stopped by so many people in NYC to tell me how amazing my dress was. I wish I could wear it every day!
I knew this wedding gown was the one for me the moment I saw it! I loved that I could play with the back straps to make it the perfect fit for my body. I wanted my wedding day vibe to be laid back, earthy, and naturally beautiful. I loved that this gown was simple, fit comfortably, and yet was effortlessly gorgeous with the lace detailing. It allowed me to trample through bushes to get to our ceremony spot, while still looking fab!
My gorgeous dress.. a HUGE thank you and many hugs & kisses to the AMAZING Goddess By Nature – you not only accommodated my timeline, you smashed it! Your creation in “Thalia” was a perfect match. It was simply love at first sight and I felt so beautiful wearing her! Every little handmade detail, every curve, and the materials – Thalia is just divine! I truly felt like a Goddess on our special day and I’ll be forever grateful. A special thank you to Brides and Bloom (bridal shop) – you were fantastic to work with and made things very easy for me. I’m still pinching myself we did it in 4 dresses!! xo
Oh my dress! I am still so in love with my dress! It was from Goddess By Nature. I had been searching through every online bridal shop and Pinterest page I could think of when I realized I had actually screen shotted the same dress 6 times! In the beginning I really thought I would wear a second hand dress, I loved the idea of finding one that way. I found a few I liked but none were ever the right size or something was off about them. Then one day I bit the bullet and made an appointment with Goddess By Nature, the girls there were so unbelievably nice! So friendly and made me feel so comfortable. They asked if there were any other styles I wanted to try on but I knew there was only one I was interested in. My mother-in-law came with me, she was shocked when she saw the dress I had fallen in love with but as soon as I put it on we both said the same thing, it was meant for me! I never imagined myself in a dress like my Lydia gown, I always envisioned myself in a tight lace gown. But as soon as I slipped my dress on I knew it was meant to be. I found my dress with about 12 weeks until the wedding, the girls were absolutely amazing at catering to my time frame as well as budget.
The most stunning bridesmaid dresses for a Caribbean destination wedding. Soft, floaty and deliciously versatile. The girls absolutely fell in love with the fabric. Drapey and high quality yet light and airy. Compliments from the guests all night ! They looked absolutely out of this world 🙂 Thank you Goddess by Nature for making our romantic, down to earth and elegant wedding dreams come true!
The bridesmaids and I were all so impressed with the gorgeous dresses from Goddess By Nature. We had the ball gown multi way in lilac and the material was devine! They all loved being able to personalise the dress to their individual styles and are so happy that it is soversatile!
I purchased four of the Goddess by Nature Signature Multiway Ballgowns in the “Dust me Pink” color for my wedding in November 2016. Your gowns/dresses are truly gorgeous and suited the shape of each of my bridesmaids – they received so many wonderful comments about how stunning they all looked. All four of my bridesmaids are keeping their dresses to wear again to various formal dinners and events (no typical 27-dresses movie scenario of putting the bridesmaid dress in storage never to be worn again for them). I’m tempted to buy one myself. Thanks again Goddess by Nature
These bridesmaids dresses were the perfect solution to every problem brides can have with finding the right dresses for her bridesmaids! The dresses come in a large array of colours, styles and lengths, can be worn in (almost) literally hundreds of different ways. A failsafe wayto ensure the dress will suit every bridesmaid. GBN also sell matching tube tops/bandeau’s for under the dresses and ties for the grooms. The materials for the dresses are easy to handle, alter and care for, and feel and flow beautifully when worn. I experienced excellent customer service, with swatches sent to me so I could see the colours and materials myself, and very timely replies to my emails which always answered all of my questions.
Goddess by nature were absolutely wonderful. Not only did my girls look absolutely stunning on the day they were happy and that was the only thing I could’ve asked for from them that they were happy and comfortable. Service was phenomenal and the dresses are stunning, the ladies were always super helpful with any questions and the dresses arrived promptly and the colours were exactly per the sample swatches. I can’t thank goddess by nature enough for making my girls look stunning on my special day 🙂
When i was asked to be bridesmaid i was excited but nervous at the same time because all i use to hear was “as bridesmaid i was so uncomfortable” I had helped the bride to look around and i came across goddess by nature and showed the bride and she mentioned she had come across it but thought it was only in QLD so i did my research and a lovely lady Elaine had helped me and provided me with the closest store near us. The minute i wore it i knew this was it and felt so comfortable. As the day arrived we knew it was going to be a long hot day especially because we started at 3am getting ready. As the night ended i couldnt believe how quick the time was because i was not tired nor uncomfortable for a second especially being in a gown for over 17 hours and just felt so light and amazing in my gown. I was so happy that the bride made the best choice to go with Goddess by nature. I’m very excited to wear my gown again!!! My 57th photo on my instagram page @anabolo91 just shows how much i was comfortable in. #feltlikeaprincess
