FAQ

 

What should I bring to my appointment?

I recommend bringing a pair of heels to wear while trying on dresses.  They do not have to be the wedding day shoes, but a similar height would be best to get the best feel.  Wearing or bringing a flesh toned bra and/or any body shape wear is suggested but not required to get the best look and feel in each dress. 

Any reference photos of dresses or wedding details are also not required, but recommended for your stylist to get the best idea of your wedding look.


I see a dress from a designer you carry but it is not in store, can i still order it?

Absolutely! Every designer carries a wide variety of gowns, some that we do not have in stores, and they are all available for purchase.  It is recommended to get fitted by a stylist and try on any in stock dress in your size to be able to order the most accurate size for the dress you choose. 


What sizes do you carry?

Theia Couture carries sizes 0-18, with select dresses going up to size 22.  

Goddess By Nature carries sizes 0-22 with optional split sizing and design customizations.

how far in advance should I order my dress?

Each designer is different with their production times, however, it is recommended to order your dress at least 16-20 weeks before the event date.  Theia Couture often has dresses in stock that can be shipped within 2 weeks, accommodating the last minute bride.  Goddess By Nature is an Australian line and requires the 16-20 weeks in order to receive your dress in time.  Dessy, for bridesmaids, requires 8 weeks time though there are some options that are available in stock and ready to ship within a few days.


Do you offer alterations or customizations?

Yes! Luxe and Lace strives to be a one-stop store for your bridal needs.  In-house alterations are available as well as customizations for your gown.  


Do I need an appointment?

Appointments are preferred to ensure that you have a private and comfortable shopping experience however, they are not required.  You are able to stop in any time during business hours to browse our selection of dresses and accessories.
