Shopping for your wedding dress should be one of the most exciting times of your life! To ensure that you have the most fun, stress-free and memorable experience, you should always leave enough time between purchasing your gown and your actual wedding date! Typically, gowns take 6-8 months to arrive at Lovella. PLEASE note that you should allow 2 months for the alterations process so that our talented seamstresses can work their magic on making your gown perfect for wedding day. Obviously, this is the ideal situation and we understand that sometimes brides need a gown sooner, which is why designers have a rush fee option if needed! Side-note... If you come in to store and fall in love with a dress, go with it! We couldn't count how many brides have come in to Lovella, found their dream dress but want to sleep on the decision, only to come back and find that it is now unavailable or we have sold the sample! So to sum that up... always be prepared to purchase and it's never too early to find your dress!


Here at Lovella, we have a unique and individual process of how we select gowns for our brides. It's not just about different shapes and styles! Your dress has to connect with you and your personality and vibe so the whole look can be truly magical! Our experienced stylists will listen to you carefully about what you like while getting a feel for your personality and vibe you are trying to achieve. They will then pull gowns based on all of the information and essentially find you your dress!
