About Your Dress

How can I receive swatches of the fabrics used for my dress?

We encourage our brides to use our fabric swatch service, especially if choosing a lining and lace combination not pictured on our website. Please use this link and choose the dress(es) you have your eye on, adding each to your cart individually.  Each dress selection will include the featured fabrics used in your dress. If you would also like a full pack of the lining options, please also choose that option from the drop down menu and add to your cart.  Order Swatches

Where is my dress made?

All of our dresses are made from start to finish in our studio in Northern California.

How and when is my dress made?

All of our gowns are made to order.  This means that we do not begin creating your dress until you have placed your order.  We will begin the process of fabric allocation and creating your dress within 3 days of receiving your order. It currently takes us about 12 weeks to make dresses from our design collection.  This is referred to as our "production time" and is measured from the date you place your order to the date your order is shipped.

When do you take my measurements?

We will send a measurement guide and bridal questionnaire to you within 3 business days of the time your order is placed.  We require your measurements to be sent to us at least 30 days prior to the projected shipping date of your dress, and sooner is always appreciated.

Can I customize the look of my dress?

Our production team is currently just too busy to be able to accommodate dress customizations that fundamentally change the shape or fit of our dresses.  We are still offering customizations to aspects like neckline and sleeves, as well as adding lining to areas of a dress that aren’t normally lined.  However, we are no longer offering customizations to combine one dress design with another, or changes from a full skirt to a fitted skirt, or visa versa.

Is there a fee to customize my neckline or sleeves?

Most customizations to the look of a dress do carry a customization fee.  Each fee depends on the request.  Customizing a dress requires a great deal of time and attention from our design and production team and therefore can add significant cost to a dress. Please get in touch to discuss your specific request.

Is there a fee to add lining?

For a dress that normally has unlined sleeves, or an unlined back, we are happy to add lining for you at no additional fee.  Please just let us know this is what you would like for your dress when you respond to our measurement questionnaire.

Can I add Rush to my order to get it faster?

We offer a limited number of Rush Order dresses for an additional fee of $100 - $300 USD.  The availability and rate for a Rush Order varies from day to day.  You will need to check with us to determine if Rush is available for you.  When contacting us please include: 1. The dress you want to order. 2. The date of your wedding. 3. The location of your shipping address (city, state, country).

How long does shipping take?

We ship worldwide and offer Regular and Rush shipping options for both domestic (USA) and international orders. Regular shipping takes about 2-4 days for domestic orders, and about 7-21 days for international orders (varies by country). Rush shipping takes about 1-2 days for domestic orders. Rush shipping internationally varies from country to country.

All dresses are shipped with insurance and tracking unless this option is not available in a specific country.

Buyer is responsible for import and customs fees which may be assessed upon delivery. Please make sure you are aware of the fees that may apply in your country.  

Also note that some countries take considerable time to process imports, which may delay delivery of your dress.  To make sure you know what to expect we recommend contacting the customs authority in your country.

Do you lend out dresses to try on at home?

Because each of our gowns is made-to-order, we do not stock samples to be lent out. However, we do have a return policy allowing for refunds minus a restocking fee in case your dress does not work out for you. You can read the full policy HERE.

Can I try on your dresses in person?

Our company is based in a private studio and at this time we are not offering try-on service. In order to keep our prices reasonable for our brides we've chosen to offer our gowns exclusively online. In this way we are able to skip the bridal store markup and the overhead of running a storefront, so we can offer our dresses at a fraction of the price they'd be listed at in a bridal boutique.

Can I return my dress if needed?

Unlike most wedding dress companies, we are so confident that you will love your dress we do accept returns for a refund, minus a restocking fee, even though your dress is created specifically for you and to your exact measurements.  Please read our full policy HERE.

What materials go into my dress?

If you love outstandingly beautiful lace, then you are at the right place. Several of our beautiful laces are made on some of the oldest European looms still running in the world.  The lace mill we source with adheres to true old-world craftsmanship holding up to the quality standards of European lace makers’ generations ago. 

Most of our wedding dresses are lined in an eco-friendly fabric: organic cotton knit, or the softest bamboo.  This makes our gowns completely unique in their luxurious comfort, as well as allowing Wear Your Love brides to feel fantastic about their choice for ethical fashion.

We pride ourselves on sourcing the most beautiful fabrics available in the textures that are most wonderful to wear.

What about sizing?

Once your order is placed we will send you a detailed measuring guide and bridal questionnaire within 3 business days so that you can provide your exact measurements so we can create your dress to your exact size and shape. 

The questionnaire will include the opportunity to provide your length measurements, as well as neckline depth, sleeve length, and slit height where applicable. This is also the chance to let us know if you would like any lining added to your sleeves or bodice back.

How can I be sure my dress will fit?

Your dress will be made to your measurements. Since our dresses are all based on stretch elements and each gown is a slip-on/slip-off style, our designs fit beautifully on a variety of body shapes and sizes, with comfort and ease.

Most of our brides are able to open the box and wear their dress without alternations, however in the wedding industry the need for alterations is very common, and alternations with your local tailor may be needed with a Wear Your Love dress in some cases.  In the rare case that an alteration is needed this is the responsibility of the buyer.

What kind of underwear do I wear?

All white, ivory, or nude dresses are best worn with flesh-tone underwear.

What about a bra?

If you need a bra, backless, off-shoulder, or illusion-back dresses are best worn with silicone stick-on bras, which we find work wonderfully for our models during our photoshoots which often involve long hours and lots of moving around.  If you need the support of traditional bra we recommend our closed back dresses with full lining in the bodice front and back such as Zoey 2.0, Everest, and Willa.

Are your dresses lined?

Yes, all of our gowns are lined with soft organic knit fabrics.  Some dresses have unlined décolletage, sleeves, or the back of the bodice, for a lace-on-skin effect.

What do your dresses feel like to wear?

Our dresses are designed to be light and comfortable from head to toe, with only the softest fabric against the skin, and stretch at every curve.

What if I want to bustle my train?

We usually recommend that our brides use a bustle pin if they intend to bustle their dress. With a bustle pin you'll have the freedom to choose a French bustle or an American bustle, as well as place your bustle as you see fit, depending on your preference and style. This also allows your train and skirt to be free of any buttons or loops showing while you walk down the aisle.

Bustle pins can be found online or in a bridal store, and come in a variety of styles.

When will I receive my dress?

Dresses purchased from our design collection take about 12 weeks to be made. 

Shipping usually takes between 2-4 days for domestic orders (USA) and between 1-3 weeks for international orders, depending on your location.  We recommend ordering your dress as early as possible so we can ensure delivery in plenty of time.  If you need your dress is less than 12 weeks please get in touch with us to inquire about our Rush Order service, which may be available at an additional charge.

It is very helpful to make sure that our team knows your WEDDING DATE so that we can be sure you receive your dress in plenty of time.  You can send us your wedding date at Hello@wearyourlovexo.com.

How should I store my dress after I receive it?

We recommend using an acid free wedding dress box for dress storage before and after your wedding.  For our full dress care guide, please click HERE.
