What can I say about Anita and her wonderful team at Vinka Design … They are the only people in the world that made me relax while planning a wedding! They were extremely friendly and Anita’s bubbly personality could make me go from crying my eyes out, thinking the world was ending to smiling and laughing hysterically! Any issues I had with ANY aspect of the wedding she was more than happy to talk through and offered a million ways to help solve whatever crisis I thought I was in.
Now for the dress … Omg I can’t even begin to describe how breathtakingly beautiful my gown was. I must admit I thought I had done something terrible the day after I handed over my deposit to her for agreeing to buy a dress off a drawing. Multiple times ringing my mum in a panic! What if I didn’t like it? What if Anita didn’t understand what I wanted? I knew that Anita was the lady I wanted to make my dress after meeting her at the Bride and Groom show the year before and I should trust my instincts. Turns out my instincts were right and the dress was in INCREDIBLE! Just the right amount of volume, and the lace! Omg! The week before my final fitting we were still playing around with ideas and I decided I wanted something small coming off the shoulder and within 5 minutes we had our idea sorted, pinned onto the dress and Anita promised it would be done. Their craftsmanship is second to none!
Would I recommend Anita and Vinka Design to anyone in the future? Absolutely. While their dresses are a little more than others, the process and manner in which they work is so relaxed and easy going, and don’t stress because it will all be worth it! Who doesn’t want to look their best on their wedding day? A perfectly customized couture gown from, in my opinion, the leading bridal designers in New Zealand. If my review can’t convince you then make an appointment with Anita and see for yourself
