Cairns brides to be will be thrilled to learn that wedding dress designs by the highly popular Made with Love fashion label will be featured at the Love on the Inlet Wedding Expo April 22 at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal.

Michelle Haydon of Townville’s Bridal Palace, the only stockest of Made with Love north of Brisbane, will be featuring 14 of the exquisite gowns the Expo’s Runway Show.

“I’m all about spreading the love everywhere, so I am keen to bring these gowns to Cairns,” said Michelle. “We have a lot of brides from Cairns and the region who come to Townsville just to look at the Made with Love designs, so we’re quite happy to bring the dresses to them. “Girls go crazy for these designs.”

The stunning gowns feature styles for all tastes and personalities, from elegant and sophisticated to hippie and boho designs.

“They’re also very soft and feminine,” said Michelle, who brought the label to her Townsville boutique to cater to the growing demand of North Queensland brides. “They’re quite modern, slim-fitting and are a fresh take on traditional bridal gowns. They’re also very comfortable and suit our tropical climate.”

As well as showcasing the stunning gowns on the Runway Show, Michelle will also have a pop-up shop at Cairns Harbour Lights on Monday from 9am to 9pm. Bookings are essential. Contact Michelle on 4772 1107 or make an appointment at the Expo.

Made With Love was started on the Gold Coast by Carla Jenkins who was unable to find her own dream wedding dress and ended up making her own, which evolved into the Made with Love label. The label has since become a hugely popular international online boutique with stores in Sydney, Adelaide and the Gold Coast and stockests in Europe, Canada, United States, Asia and South Africa.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to showcase Made With Love wedding dresses,” said Love on the Inlet co-orgainser Deb Kinsella. “The dresses are very feminine, very soft and very comfortable. They’re extremely popular.”
