Things You Need to Know Before Ordering Your Dress

A reminder about Custom Dresses - Processing and Shipping - We suggest that you allow a 60 - 90 day window for your order to be processed and shipped to you.  Some dresses may come sooner but it depends on the dress you order.

Please keep in mind, dresses are uniquely made to order specifically for you to keep costs low for you.  If you are unsure of size, choose one size larger and bring the dress to a local tailor to custom fit your body type.  All Dress orders are custom made and considered final, no returns. Please double check your measurements and color choice before ordering.  Petticoats and undergarments are not included and may be purchased separately.

Sizing and Fit

We recommend our Brides compare their measurements to those of the dress they’re interested in purchasing. Bridal gowns are sized differently than your street clothes. Bridal gowns are made to accommodate alterations and can typically be taken in 2-4 sizes and let out 1-2 sizes (unless otherwise noted). Also, if you are greater than a C cup, note that a bigger size is better. 


Bust: Do not use your bra size for a bust measurement. With a tape measure fullest part of the bust, across nipple line. Be sure to keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor. Wear a bra similar to the bra you will be wearing with your dress. 

Waist/Natural Waist: Smallest part of the waist, usually 1 inch above navel. While standing straight up, bend to your side. The part where your waist creases is your natural waist. Mark the spot, stand up and then measure there.

Hips: Fullest part of the buttocks. Stand with feet together.

Almost everyone will require alterations by a professional seamstress.

It is always better to purchase a dress that is a little bigger than one that is too small. We recommend you purchase a gown that fits your largest measurement, and have the dress taken in.

Most dresses have a CUSTOM SIZE option, Please select this option if your measurements do not match any sizes on the Size Chart.  Leave your measurements at checkout note box.  We will confirm back to you through email your CUSTOM SIZE MEASUREMENTS before we place your order.

If you require a custom consultation, please contact us with your questions.

Handling and Care - please use professional services to clean and store your dress, fabrics are delicate and need professional care.
