Purchasing your wedding dress online can be a daunting experience, but it doesn't have to be!
If you can't make it to our Perth showroom, no problem. We pride ourselves on being an online destination can trust and offer brides full support from finding "the one" to the ordering and delivery process. We have created a step-by-step guide to ensure you experience an effortless online experience.
If you have a clear vision of what your perfect gown looks like, that is a great start. If you have no clue, fear not. Simply chat to our stylist using the instant chat box and we will ask you questions to narrow down your style and ideal silhouette. Whether it's modern, traditional or bohemian, we have it all. We do recommend brides to try on some dresses at your local bridal stores however, to get a clearer idea of what styles suit you and what don't.
Once you have the exact image or a check list of elements you must have in your dream gown, it's time to browse the Le Vow website. Click "view all" to see our full range or type in the search bar to filter out your search. If we don't have "the one" in our collection, let us custom create her for you. We are one of the very few sotres that offer full customisation. You may choose to send us an email explaining your ideal dress, or talk to a stylist via a virtual appointment so she can sketch out a design for you. Alternatively, you can also send us clear photos of the front, back and details of a gown you find from instagram or another wedding gown brand.
Don't forget to also browse our bridal accessories product range to view veils and hair accessories. Did we mention, we also make custom veils and preserved flower accessories?
Once you are happy with the gown you've chosen, it's time to place the order. We recommend brides to order their dress atleast 3 months before their wedding. You may choose to order your dress over 6 months in advance to secure the desired fabrics, then take your measurements 3 months before your wedding to avoid drastic changes due to weight loss or weight gain. For made-to-measure orders, we recommend booking a virtual appointment so that our stylist can help guide you to take measurements correctly.
For custom orders, you will be sent a pdf form detailing the design of your gown and details for your confirmation. Once it's confirmed and you wil be requried to make a 50% non-refundable payment. Once your dress has been made, our team will send you photos of your dress. We will require the remaing balance to be paid before shipping it to your address.
Don't forget to add any bridal accessories at this stage as well!
This is where the magic happens! Invite your girlfriends over to sip champagne in a clean, well-lit space. They’ll want to be there for this treasured moment when you try on ‘The One’! Help to envisage your special day by preparing the corect under garments and shoes. Seamless nude underwear is the way to go! Remove any jewels and let a friend help you into your gown. Picture how you'll look on the day and cue the happy tears!
We recommend trying on your gown within 3 days of receiving it to check the fit. If we've made a mistake and the gown is way too tight, loose or long, please let us know. If it is indeed our team's fault, we sincerely apologise and will reimburse alteration fees up to $100. Simple include a photo of the receipt from your local tailor in an email. However, if the gown doesn't fit due to changes in your body, we cannot provide any compensation.
If you are absolutely in love with your dress ( which we're sure you will be), please let us know through a facebook review! As a small business, testimonials are incredibly important in helping our brand grow. We'd also love for you to send us wedding photos to be featured on our social media channels and " Real brides" blog. Please also don't forget to tag @levowbridal on any instagram posts xx.
