Absolutely stunning piece. I couldn't believe it to be true but it is more beautiful in person. The dress is very beautifully crafted in the most brilliant of materials.

Thank you so much for supporting my Shop and independent designers!

  • Pay with PayPal
Paypal accepted. Payment is required at the time of purchase unless you convo with me in advance about other arrangements. Payment plans available, half is required at time of purchase and remainder to be paid within 45 days. Email if you have a different situation and I will work with you :)

I would greatly appreciate if you didnt ask for a discount in price or items to be made in a less expensive fabric. I currently make each piece by hand and use the highest quality materials for the best possible dress for you. This is just how I love to work and each piece is priced accordingly. Sadly silk costs have grown so high over the last year it has forced me to raise my prices some, but please remember you are getting a custom built dress made to order to your specific measurements. Thank you!
US-All US shipments are sent USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. You should receive your order within 3-5 days of shipment.
Due to recent disappointments with the Post Office, as of August 2011 I will be using FEDEX or UPS for ALL WEDDING DRESSES. The cost is slightly more, but you are guaranteed tracking info, etc.
International- I prefer to ship FEDEX international for ALL WEDDING DRESSES, I realize the cost is more than regular mail but have had too much unreliability with USPS Mail. I will only ship USPS EXPRESS if you ask for it specifically and assume complete responsibility for the package once it is sent. It still has insurance and such, but I cannot guarantee it door to door like i can with a private company such as FEDEX.
All other merchandise is sent usps Priority Mail. International mail takes about 6-14 days. Buyer is responsible for customs fees, sorry!

Custom wedding orders will be shipped in the agreed timeline based on my current timeframe. Please inquire directly for specific time frame needs, these can usually be met!
Refunds and Exchanges
Made to order ballerina tanks may be exchanged for in store credit within 7 days of delivery.
There are no returns on custom bridal work.
Please contact me directly in the event an item is damaged or lost in shipping or you are simply unsatisfied and we can work something out. I make it my policy to make sure every customer is happy with her dress and will never just "leave you hanging" for any reason. I have always been able to work something out so your purchase is safe with me.
Buyer pays return shipping.
Gowns are made to order based on your measurements, so please be accurate when submitting those, as I am not responsible for weight gained or lost after I had made your dress based on your given measurements.
Any additional alterations to custom gowns (unless I have gotten your size incorrect) are your between you and your tailor :)
There is a $500 cancellation fee for all orders cancelled prior to production.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do have samples available for some of the styles offered. They are available to ship to you for a refundable deposit, which is equal to the cost of the dress. This "deposit" goes through Paypal, which is then refunded via Paypal upon its return to me. All you cover are shipping costs. I ask you keep the sample for no longer than 48 hours (unless you have worked out something with me in advance) as there are waitlists for some of the dresses. Please email me if you would like this option and to get on a waitlist for one of the dresses. I do this for International as well based on samples availability and so long as Expedited Shipping is used...
