We recommend 6 to 9 months prior to your wedding is the ideal time to purchase your bridal gown. Lovella Bridal has options for rush orders or you may also be able to purchase a sample gown for immediate same day purchase.
Yes! Our stylists at Lovella Bridal want to provide you with the personal attention and expertise that you deserve to help select your dream wedding gown. We have a signature process we take each bride through to find you your dream wedding dress!
You will need to set aside at least an hour. It’s one of the most important purchases that you’ll ever make for yourself, so take some time to try on a selection of our stunning wedding gowns.
We recommend wearing nude undergarments. Be prepared to go braless as you won't need a bra on the day of your wedding. Shoes are not necessary to bring as all our dresses are very long. We have shoes for you to try on if you so wish. Pictures of gowns that best describe your vision and style that most interests you are helpful. We also encourage our brides to be open to try on styles recommended by Lovella stylists. Over the years we’ve developed an eye for what works. You may be pleasantly surprised if you do!
Bringing along family members and/or friends near and dear to your heart often enhances the intimate nature of selecting your dream gown. However, please be mindful that this may also present a challenge if your entourage does not share your vision. View our Safe Shopping Protocols here.
Picture taking is permitted in our salon!
All purchases in-store must be paid in full.
During Trunk Show weekend events Lovella Bridal brings in a larger selection of a designer's collection that is not typically available in-store. The benefits for you to attend a trunk show are that you’ll have the opportunity to pre-shop a larger selection of gowns from a particular designer you've identified you love. These gowns are only available for purchase during this event. View our upcoming Trunk Shows here.
Sample Sales are events where brides purchase the sample gown that hangs in the bridal salon that brides try on for a discount. These gowns are sold as seen. Sample Sales are perfect for brides that don't have time to order their dress, looking for a great deal, or potentially a second dress! *Lovella Bridal does not offer alteration services on sample gowns.
Alteration services are available in house for special ordered gowns. This is a service we provide if you so wish to choose to have our artisans work on your gown. Our highly skilled Lovella Bridal couture seamstresses conduct fittings within 2 months of your wedding day. Tuesday - Friday are designated as fitting days to ensure personal privacy and attention.
As soon as your gown arrives, you will be notified by Lovella Bridal. You will schedule your first fitting 2 months prior to the wear date.
The most important item to bring with you is your shoes, as we need to determine the best hemline length for your gown. You may also want to bring undergarments that you intend to wear.
On average 2 to 3 fittings is the usual number that is necessary for our brides. If structural changes or modifications are needed additional visits may be required to achieve the perfect look and feel. Each gown and body require different levels of attention.
