Since all gowns are ordered specifically for you, we do not refund or exchange any order once a deposit has been placed for a gown at the shop.

How to pick a wedding gown?

1) Pear-shaped: Go for dress shape in which the skirt flows down in an A-formation. Look for sturdy and stiff materials that don’t cause it to cling to your body. 2) Apple-shaped: A dress with a ‘V’ neck and its centre focusing on the smallest part of the waist would be best suited for this body type. 3) Small-chested: If you’re small-chested, you can opt for a dress that has a lot of thread work or laces on the bodice that would create and illusion of curves. 4) Tall: Tall brides must have everything analysed in their gown including the length of the gown and sleeves. 5) Petite: Those who are petite should preferably opt for a dress that has a higher waist than your normal waist so that it makes your lower body look longer. 6) Plus sized: An Empire dress that flows into an A-line from under the chest while accentuating the curves is the right kind that should suit best.
