made in Austin Texas
Brides typically need 3 fittings in order to get the perfect fit. If you are not able to meet in Austin for in-person fittings, please allow enough time to receive your dress 8-10 weeks before your wear date for alterations.
Gowns are made to your measurements provided. But a bride should always assume that a dress will need a few adjustments for the best fit.
