Happy International Women’s Day! For this blog post, in celebration of women’s rights, I want to get into a little more of the “why” Grace + Ivory is a social enterprise focusing on women and girls and why we choose to do what we do.
We’ve heard the horror stories. A friend buys a wedding dress online. She loves the style and “thinks” it will look good on her. She gets the dress, it doesn’t fit right (was it custom or off the rack?). Or she doesn’t like the style. Or the color wasn’t what she expected. Or the fabric looks cheap.
Buying anything online is scary. Now buying a wedding dress online almost seems impossible. But it doesn’t have to be. If you know how to do it right, you can buy a beautiful dress that fits and has the same or better quality of other luxury dresses – all while saving thousands of dollars in the process.
When it comes to your wedding dress options, the little details can really help make your dress unique and custom (and more comfortable!). I recommend having a list of questions to ask your design stylist about your dress so you can be sure that you have all your bases covered.
Here are some custom details that you can consider when shopping for your wedding dress.
Why does it take so long to get a wedding dress? At Grace + Ivory, we believe you deserve to get it faster. How do we create made-to-measure dresses in less time? Three things make us different.
