“Last year you spent endless hours with helping me to decide on the exact dress for my wedding :). And you definitely delivered!
Although my day was 45 degrees and gale force winds my dress was just amazing!!!
The amount of complements I have received over the past six months and the praise from my new husband was all I could have imagined!
We had our fairytale wedding in my fairytale dress 🙂 I can’t thank you enough for giving me exactly what I always imagined here are some photos of how well the dress came out on the day! When I get some more photos back I can send them too!!

“Elide made my wedding gown 2 years ago and now made my daughters christening gown out with the same fabric! So in love with her gown a real sentiment! The service here is really wonderful! Thank you Elide!!
—Laura Farrugia 2019
“Elide is amazing! An artist at her craft and nothing is ever too much, no last minute adjustments or changes is a hassle. She made my dream dress for my wedding in Dec 2018 and EVERYONE wanted to know where I got it! A stunning piece of work that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on! The first dress I tried and I loved it immediately! As it had to be altered to fit And slightly adjusted I was never worried about what her vision was or what the finished product was going to look like! If you want someone that is so friendly, patient and you almost feel like your going to visit family – please go see her! Cannot recommend her enough or thank her enough! Your own Ms Valentino is in Brunswick! She makes couture look like childs play!

“I had the pleasure of having my dress made to measure by Elide and her team for my wedding a couple of months ago. Where do I begin! I cannot fault the team at Bonita couture. I am an extremely particular yet indecisive person. I had a basic idea of what I wanted, and knew the look I was going for, but had no concrete design or style in mind. From the beginning, Elide really listened to what I wanted, and adapted as my wants and vision changed. The finished product was more beautiful than I could ever have imagined.
The service is exceptional. So much effort went into every detail and to make sure I was satisfied with the end product.
More than anything else, the best part was the experience of having my dress made by such a wonderful group of women who treat their clients not like customers, but like a member of their family.
Thank you to Elide, Rosa, Luana and all the team members behind the scenes for such a beautiful dress, and a wonderful experience.!

“If you are wedding dress shopping look no further than Bonita Couture. Impeccable hand crafted pieces made with so much love care and attention to detail. I got married in Nov 2018 , 7 days out from my wedding day i was left dressless by a so called designer in Melbourne. With 250 guest invited to my wedding and dressless days before Elide from Bonita couture was my real life angel. I made contact with Elide who was so compassionate from my initial phone conversation. She was flexible with her time and allowed me to visit her on the sunday morning prior to a consultation she had booked with a client. My wedding week started off as a complete nightmare. When i met Elide i immediately was greeted by a beautiful woman who had a special aura about her which i immediately fell in love with. Such positive vibes to my previous wedding dress experience. Elide welcomed me into her creative space where i tried on two dresses,. By Tuesday , 4 days out from my wedding i knew that the second dress i had tried on was my dress. Rose Angel was the name of my dress, i felt like it was meant to be as i felt the universe had bought me to Elide , my Angel! Elide started alterations on my gown on the wednesday i had my second fitting on friday the day before my wedding & third fitting by lunch time. i collected my gown at 8pm friday night the night before my wedding day. Elide exudes positivity love and care , she made me feel special and i knew that i was safe in her hands and she was not going to stop until perfection was reached. My dress was everything and more. My dream dress simple, elegant with a Bonita touch of class. French silk was sculptured to my body, 4 months after my wedding i still have people complimenting and talking about my dress. i love looking back at my wedding day and my wedding pictures and i believe i will forever love my dress & i will be forever grateful for Elide at Bonita Couture for turning around my wedding week. The love & friendship i have for Elide i know in my heart we will be friends forever. If your wedding dress shopping in Melbourne , Go visit Elide at Bonita Couture!

“I can not recommend Elide and her team highly enough. Elide is patient, professional, a great communicator, and everything you would want in terms of dealing with someone for your wedding day (or any event). My dress was made to measure – It was an excellent price / excellent quality and made in store. She has a beautiful studio and was there to help me with anything I needed in the lead up to my day. I had other friends who ordered dresses before me in other stores and had to wait for their dresses to be made overseas and pay extra for the fittings – no thanks. Save yourself the bother and go and see Bonita Couture.!

—Zarah Garde-Wilson 2018
“Elide and her team are amazing, flawless. Elide made my wedding dress and bridal shower dress and it was everything I dreamed for an more. Elide, listens and she is honest in her opinion. It’s not about $$$ it’s about customer satisfaction. I whole heartedly recommend Bonita ✨!
