If the boutique wedding dress experience isn’t for you, and you want to buy your wedding dress online, where do you start? How do you make sure you’re getting exactly what you want without seeing that bridal beauty in the flesh?
Luckily for you, Grace Loves Lace’s founder, Megan Ziems has all the answers when it comes to nailing your online wedding dress shopping. Statistics have shown that over 70% of Grace Loves Lace customers are confident when it comes to ordering their dress online with the help of the label’s expert team of online stylists.
You’ll be delighted to know that the brand’s effortless designs and ordering process is geared for ecommerce, which means purchasing a wedding dress online with the label is surprisingly low risk. Founded in 2011 as an online business, Grace Loves Lace gowns are handmade to order in their Australian studio (so, if you were thinking they were off the peg, you’re wrong!) The brand uses luxurious European stretch lace to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit, just perfect for taking to the aisle in and causing a stir!
So, what about those TOP TIPS:
#1 ‘Traditional gowns which feature rigid fabrics, boning, structure and no stretch are a high-risk online purchase. GLL gowns are made to order in luxurious stretch laces, meaning you don’t need to gamble and order a size down.’
#2 ‘Make sure the dress you’re ordering is fully lined to avoid any see-through. (All GLL gowns are.)’
#3 ‘Ask for a fabric swatch if you’re unsure of the colour.’
#4 ‘When in doubt – a fitted top and loose skirt is a flattering silhouette on most body shapes.’
#5 ‘Gowns with a tie-back or adjustable straps allow for extra support or easy adjustment on the day.’
#6 ‘Research how your gown looks on real brides. GLL have testimonials and images all over social media and their website, to ensure you have a realistic view of your dream dress.’
#7 ‘Make sure you look for ‘Bust Support’ in the description if you need it. This can mean coverage, added built in cups or the ability to wear a bra.’
#8 ‘It’s important to communicate any concerns with your dedicated stylist.’
