Home Arrival

The long awaited day has come to finally try on your dress! You must be so excited, and it's time!  

Please ensure to keep the dress in its original, new, unmarked, undamaged condition with labels attached with its packaging in the event you wish to return the dress. Full terms for returns click here

This part of the process is a lot easier if you have someone with you who can help. See our 'Home Prepping Checklist' for full guidance.

It is also worth noting, any dresses ordered in a standard size (i.e. size 44) will require alterations. The only exceptions are 'custom' sized dresses, which are made to your specific measurements.


You will likely find the standard size is too long, has sleeves or straps that need lifting, and nips & tucks throughout the body of the dress. Don't worry - It will fit AMAZINGLY once altered to your body.
