We don’t mean to brag but…our gowns are the best gowns! A lot of thought and consideration was put into the choosing of each gown. And we get TONS of questions on them…so here are the questions we hear the most…
Who are your designers?
Atelier Pronovias, Blush by Hayley Paige, Hayley Paige, Pronovias, Tara Keely by Lazaro, Ti Adora by Allison Webb, Willowby by Watters, and Wtoo by Watters! SO much thought was put into selecting our designers and who we wanted to represent L and our brides. The designers we carry we have exclusively to our region.
How much are your gowns?
This is our most frequently asked question (and rightfully so)! Our gowns are couture–they are made JUST for you when YOU order it! It is not sitting in a warehouse…they aren’t mass produced. Our designers have certain distances they mandate between stores so not everyone has their collection. With that being said, the gowns start at around $1500 and go up to just under $7000. Our “sweet spot” of gowns is the $2000-$3500 range. And YES, there is a HUGE different in a gown this is $1000 and one that is $5000. The detail, the lace, and everything is different on the gowns! It all depends on what kind of investment you want to make in your gown.
How long does it take for my gown to come in?
Each of our designers works off of a different time chart. Our Atelier Pronovias line is handmade in Barcelona and must go through customs. A safe bet is 4-6 months for your gown to come in. Some can come sooner, some can be rushed for an additional fee. Now 4-6 months does not mean that 4-6 months before your wedding is when you BUY your gown.
How long before my wedding should I buy my gown?
I am a huge proponent of 9 months to a year. Yes, we can get some rush shipped. Yes, we’ve gotten some in 8 weeks or less but the brides were very limited on their choices of gowns. Your gown will always require some sort of alteration. Alterations on wedding gowns are no joke–sometimes they have to remove lace from the gown and move it up for your hem–so it has to be hand stitched back on. If you plan on taking bridals, you need your gown in and altered by the day of your bridal portraits which is sometimes 1-2+ months before your actual wedding date (especially if you’re getting married in the summer…no one wants to take bridals in the heat). You also have to take into account the time of year you are bringing your gown to the seamstress…is it wedding season? Mardi gras season? Homecoming/prom season? You HAVE to give your seamstress plenty of time–you aren’t their only bride!
