Can I buy my wedding gown online?

No. This online shop is for all of our products except for our gowns.   Please feel free to browse our gowns via our main website and reach out  to start your order!

 As important as your wedding gown purchase is, we find that it's best to have a conversation before placing an order.  We believe that good customer service starts with this conversation and continues beyond your wedding day.  Our bridal gowns are final sale and making sure all of your concerns and customizations are taken care of is our goal.  For this reason, our bridal gowns are not available for purchase in our online shop.  


Can I try these guys on somewhere?

Yes!  You can book an accessorizing appointment at our NYC Flagship, or check directly with your nearest retailer to see if your favorite pieces are carried.   We also host open studio hours about once a month for pop-in shopping sans appointment, so keep an eye on our events calendar.


How does sizing work?

If your measurements don't match, alterations should be expected to get that perfect "it was made for you" fit.  After all, your dress is a one of a kind piece, so it's worth the investment!

The good news is that our dresses were made with alterations in mind, so an experienced seamstress or tailor should be able to tackle them with ease. Common alterations include:

  • taking in straps
  • taking in waist or side seams
  • sewing in bra cups
  • shortening hem length
