1) How to Choose a Wedding Style
Everyone thinks they know how to buy a wedding gown. What most women don't realize is fabrics, style and measurements can influence the style of wedding dress that best compliments a particular body type.
FULL FIGURED WOMEN
If you are a full figured woman the best silhouette is an A- Line. A-line lengthens the whole body without drawing attention to your waistline. The empire waist is another good choice. The empire is narrowest just below the bust and conceals your waist and hips.
Many plus size girls tend to purchase wedding gowns that cover a lot of skin. If religion isn't an issue don't be afraid to show some skin. Skin is sexy and showing your arms and neckline can often make one appear smaller.
Deep V necks and scoop necks flatter curvy figures and always look best on full figured women.
A-line wedding dresses are also flattering on a petite women. As we stated earlier it lengthens the body. Sheaths seem to shorten a small body even more. Stay clear of very full skirts. You want to keep your wedding dress in proportion to your body.
Be careful with strapless.
A petite woman may have to lift her arms to reach up to her new husband.
A cap sleeve gives the feeling of a strapless gown and also serves a practical purpose in holding the gown in place.
LARGE BUST WOMEN
Off the shoulder gowns look wonderful on a full bust. It draws our attention upward, emphasizes the shoulders and minimizes the chest. Keep your skirt narrow. Wearing a full skirt will make you look large on top and bottom.
Women who are larger through their hips and buttocks should look for a wedding dress that focuses on their upper body preferably with a full skirt. Show your arms back and bust line.
Corset style bodice with lacing will highlight your upper body. We want to draw attention away from your hips. Avoid pleats or gathered fabric around the waist.
3) Do you know where I can buy nice veil, gloves and petticoat go with my dress?

6) Will I be charged custom?
Don't worry about it. We will mark the dress as a gift or sample on the parcel if you just order 1 or 2 dresses at the same time, most of time you needn't to pay any custom by our experience.
When you order, usually you will get dresses in 3-4 weeks.
1) Can I have a gown made to my measurement?
Of course yes, as custom-made is our first concern. We can make the dress in your own size, You may send us your special measurements according to our size guide.
2) How to measure for your size
It is very important that proper measurements be taken before a gown is ordered. Start by carefully taking your measurements using our friendly size guide. For standard size, on average you will need to go up 1 or 2 sizes than what you normally where in sportswear or street clothes. Bridal gowns are meant to have a close fit to the body so they tend to be cut smaller than sportswear.
To measure yourself, you must be dressed in only a good fitting bra and underwear. To measure you bust, take the measuring tape around your back at bust level and over your nipples without pulling too tight or leaving too much slack. Do the same at your waist going over your belly button. To properly measure your hip, go around the fullest part of your buttocks, about 7-9 inches below your belly button. Compare these measurements to our size chart and you should have a good fit.

4) How should I clean my beautiful wedding dress?
First of all, ALWAYS get your dress cleaned after wearing. If it is not cleaned in a reasonable amount of time after wearing a yellowing of the fabric may result from prolonged storage. ALWAYS take your bridal dress to a professional cleaner that specializes in bridal dresses. Your normal cleaner may damage the precious dress by using the wrong chemicals.
5) Is the color of the picture display the same color as the dress?
Not always. Your monitor and color correction utilities may change the colors. Different brands, lighting in the room, and other variables can also make your eyes receiving different color information. Do not use pictures and magazines as color swatches since different brands of ink on different types of paper may have different feel. Ask the store to show you sample swatches and allow for slight dye-lot difference.
1) How will I know my dress is on its way?
If you give us a valid email address, you will receive an email with a tracking number when your dress is shipped. You can also check the status of your order anytime.
6) Can I change the color of the dress or the accent of the dress? How much is there extra charge?
Yes. You can change the color of the dress or accent of the dress. But we recommend you to think over before you make any change of style or color. It might be different from your imagination. And your gown might be delayed due to the color change because we may not have that color in stock and will make special order for you. Please check our color chart and tell us the color number you select and make a special note on the measurement form when you order. We usually don't charge extra if you only change the color. In case there is extra charge, we will let you know.
7) Can I send you a picture of the gown and you custom make the gown for me?
Yes. We can custom make the gown if you give us clear pictures showing both front and back. But please be aware of that the charge will be much higher than the styles in my list because our designers will have to design it from scratch just for you and it will cost more. I need to contact our designers for quote. And we don't accept return and refund for custom made gowns.
