An Australian bridal store is offering wedding dresses for a fraction of their original price after the shop went into liquidation.

Adelaide's Bridal on Pulteney is being forced to auction off its remaining stock after it suffered a recent sales slump, reports.

The self-proclaimed "multi-award winning" store is now selling gowns as cheap as A$15 (NZ$15.60).

Approximately 70 brides-to-be are affected by the shop's closure, and the appointed liquidator says they have placed a high priority on notifying impacted customers.

Stephen James says liquidators are now "selling the assets of the company" and notifying creditors of the liquidation.

The dresses could be inspected in-store until Thursday, with the auction closing on March 3.

The general manager of Evans Clarke - who is auctioning the gowns - says there were "lines out the door" as hordes of people rushed to see the dresses in person.

"It's just a great opportunity for people who have got their special day coming up to save some money on what would be a large component of the cost," Andrew Monks told

He says some dresses are selling at A$4000 (NZ$4168) or more, and others are starting at A$15, so the opportunities to get a bargain are "immense".

Among the wedding dresses being auctioned, bridesmaid's gowns, flower girl dresses and bridal accessories are also up for grabs.

The dresses come in a variety of sizes and some have already attracted bids, pushing up the starting price.
