When will my dress ship?

Average manufacturing and delivery period is 12-18 weeks for special ordered attendant & bridal gowns. Some special ordered Prom, mother & flowergirls gowns run 2-4 weeks.Each manufacturer has a unique manufacturing schedule. This schedule varies throughout the year for each item based upon seasonal demand. The clock begins ticking once we order the items from the manufacturer. This normally occurs within 48 hours. The exception to this is when a bride has registered her wedding on our web-site and we will be ordering a group of attendant gowns for her wedding. We place the order with the manufacturer once the final bridesmaid registered within her event has purchased. This procedure must be followed to protect against dye lot variations.

What is Dye-lot?

Dye lot is the shade of color. Fabric is dyed to a specific color. This color is a mix of ingredients that is applied to the fabric to obtain that color. Each time the color is mixed a slightly different shade may result. This is not intended, but just the way it is since it is a semi-manual process. This knowledge is most important when ordering attendant gowns since you normally have more than one attendant in a wedding and they usually stand next to each other. A slight shade (dye-lot) variable between the gowns may be noticeable if they were not made from the same bolt of fabric. Most brides would not be happy with ANY variation, so it is recommended that a group of attendant gowns are ordered from the manufacturer at the exact same time. This insures they will be manufactured from the same bolt of fabric and thus avoid a variation. Dye-lots WILL vary between different style numbers and/or fabrics. How to Order Via this Website.

Sizing *IMPORTANT*

Be sure you use the factory size chart to pick your size. Do not simply select your normal dress size. Once the order is placed with a manufacturer it CANNOT be changed. Most of the gowns offered are sized smaller than normal street apparel. Meaning with most of these manufacturers you will need a size larger than you normally wear in everyday street apparel. Manufacturers provide size charts as your guide in choosing the correct size. Look for the size chart on the product detail page.It is important that you measure properly. We can help guide you in this area, but we cannot choose the size for you. Proper fit is subjective and individual - one person may like a dress tighter than another. You will need to choose the size you feel most comfortable with, given your measurements and fit preferences. Remember also, every designer has their own size chart.


Sizes usually cannot be changed on a order once it has been placed. The final choice for size is yours. The information provided is intended to help you make the best choice. If you require assistance in determining your size, we are happy to help. You can email celebrationslvnv@msn.com, however, when we give advice on sizing, we are basing it on the information you’ve provided – since we are not taking the measurements ourselves, we have to assume that the measurements provided are correct, and that is what we are basing our recommendations upon.

Measuring Tips


The best way to get accurate measurements and find the best fit is to enlist a professional seamstress to help you. Measure your bust at the fullest part with your arms down by your side. Then measure your waist at its smallest part. Remember gown measurements are at your natural waist, not necessarily where your jeans sit. You should measure your hips around their fullest part.
Bust
Measure the bust at the widest part of the back, straight across the top of the bust, NOT under the bust line. The type of bra worn, or whether one is worn at all, can make a difference. Do NOT use your bra/cup size.


Waist
Measure at your natural waistline. Holding your stomach in would be a mistake, as would create a skin-tight measurement. Leave a finger's width under the tape so it can move.
Hips
Measure at the largest part of the hips (this is generally about 8” down from your natural waistline). The tips of your fingers should be the area to measure when you rest your hands on your hips and put your thumbs at your natural waist. Only in the case of a straight skirt, slim-a-line or when the hip is several sizes larger than the other measurements will a hip measurement be necessary to determine size.
Hollow to Hem
Hollow to hem is the frontal measurement from the bottom of your neck (the indentation between your collar bones) to the hem. When measuring, make sure you are wearing all of your undergarments, including any extra slips or crinoline. You should also be wearing shoes with a heel height similar to the ones you will wear with your wedding dress.
Extra Length
Most bridesmaid full length dresses offer extra length. Most factories suggest that you should consider ordering extra length if you are 5'8" or taller with shoes on. Other factors are heel of shoe, hem height off floor, etc. Extra length is usually an additional 5" of fabric added to the dress. You will need to hem the dress to length desired in almost every case. Remember - if you are not sure, it's better to have too much length and be able to shorten than to have a dress that's too short and can't be let out. Extra length charges will vary by designer.
Plus Sizes
Most manufacturers charge an additional fee for dresses size 18 and up, often referred to as Plus Sizes. Plus size charges will vary by manufacturer are automatically calculated when the size is selected for an item. Custom Fitting Gowns are manufactured to the measurements within the size chart. The standard measurements of gowns do not properly fit most women. As a result the majority of gowns must be custom fitted to your body to receive the ideal fit.Please be aware that sizing is not an exact science and custom fitting by an experienced seamstress will almost always be necessary for a proper fit.
