A quick PSA

We always want to keep everything as transparent as possible, while continuing to support you and help you find your dream dress! So, here’s the T: the wedding boom is real y’all!

If you have ample time, we highly recommend starting your wedding dress dress journey as soon as possible.

There’s a lot of things going in the world that have have created a knock-on effect and the increased demand has impacted everything from production, to delivery and alterations. This is not to make anyone worry;  we will do everything we can to help you find your dream dress! This is just our PSA to begin shopping earlier than previously recommended.

No matter when your wedding is, we got you!!

The Big Day

The first step to figuring out what your ordering timeline is, is identifying your wedding date. You have so many options available to you, but they all depend on when you’re tying the knot!

11+ months until your big day

If your wedding is more than 11+ months away then made-to-order gowns are for you! A made-to-order gown means you try on the sample we have in store and then we are able to order a brand new dress from the designer in a size that best fits you. This could also be your opportunity to order a dress in a different colour than the sample, or perhaps with a fun customization!

11+ months is the perfect time to order a gown from any designer we carry and still have time for delivery and alterations; stress free. And who doesn’t want a little less stress while wedding planning?!

4-10 months until your big day

If your wedding is 4-10 months away you’re still able to select a made-to-order gown, but keep in mind that there may be rush fees depending on your wedding date and the designer. Rush fees bump your dress up the production queue to ensure it’s made to accommodate a tighter timeline.

Another helpful tip would be to ensure you have a tailor lined up and ready-to-go for when your dress arrives.

If that’s not your thing, you can always browse our off-the-rack collection!

If your wedding is less than 4 months away then off-the-rack gowns are for you!

You can browse from over 150 gowns all marked 15-70% off. These gowns may need a little extra TLC to get them wedding-day ready but we have a list of talented tailors that are up to the task!
