Try-On FAQ

Try on dresses at Floravere showroom or at home

Can you ship samples internationally or outside the contiguous US?

As we grow, we very much hope to be able to offer our home try-on program to our friends outside the 48 states (hello, Hawaii/Alaska/Puerto Rico!) & to our international brides.

However, at this time, we are only able to offer our signature Bride Box (with its home try-on samples) to our customers in the contiguous Unites States simply due to high international/overseas shipping costs. But text (310) 596-1612 or email us at and let's see if we can work something out. 

Can I try on in person with a Floravere Stylist instead?

Yes, it's simple! Click on our Showroom page to find the location closest to you, and to request a private styling appointment to try on your favorite Floravere gowns. Our Bridal Concierge will contact you within one week of submitting your request to confirm your wedding details and to help you best prepare for your styling appointment! The appointment requested is not set until confirmed by our Concierge.

We always want to confirm your wedding details before your appointment so we can let you know if you'll need to rush order your final gown, or if any of your requested styles or sizes will be unavailable to try on during your appointment.

I'm booked for an appointment at your showroom! How should I best prepare for my Styling Appointment?

To take full advantage of the one-on-one time with your Floravere Stylist, we recommend booking appointments at more traditional bridal boutiques before visiting us! At classic shops with a wider selection, you can explore fabrics and silhouettes to truly determine your bridal style. Once you have explored your options and feel ready to make a decision, you can come in to try on our highly curated collection having a few specific styles of ours in mind that you feel could be 'the one'.

If there is anyone (mom, best friend, fiancé) who's must be there with you for your "say yes" moment, make sure to book your appointment at a time when they'll be in town! Our brides are limited to one Styling Appointment, so you should visit us at a time when all friends and family will be able to join your appointment as well.

I'm ordering samples to try on at home. How much will my Bride Box cost?

Unlike brick-and-mortar dress shops, we want to be totally up-front with what things cost (and why!). To allow us to offer our convenient at-home experience, we charge $45 per sample dress and free shipping both ways (up to 3 samples). If you fall in love with one of our dresses and decide to live happily ever after with it, we’ll credit all Home Try-on costs! Which makes your try-on free. Easy peasy.

So to sum it up:
$45 (per sample) 
Free shipping, both ways

*With a final gown order, all sample fees credited back (aka free)!

$15/late day fee does apply for late returns to ensure the next bride gets her samples on time!

How long do I have to try on my sample dresses?

Ship back your dresses after 3 days. If the 3rd day is a Sunday or holiday, drop it off the day after. We strive to give you timely updates on the status of your delivery + you can track your shipment via Fedex so that you can know ahead of time when to expect it.

Not to be a total bummer, but fees do apply for late returns - $15/ late day - to ensure the next bride gets her samples on time!

If we don't hear from you and seven days go by after your Bride Box was delivered, we’ll assume you're keeping the samples and charge you the full price of the gown(s).

What if I need more time with my sample dresses?

If you need a little more time, text us at (310) 596-1612 or email us at to ask whether we can accommodate. 

How do I return the samples?

Everything you need to return your dress samples comes in your Bride Box. Package up the gowns securely in their original packaging (with all tags attached), affix the return label, and mail back with FedEx. We’ll email you if there are any problems with your sample return; if you don't get an email from us, you can assume that your samples are safe and sound!

Not to be a total bummer, but fees do apply for late returns - $15/ late day - to ensure the next bride gets her samples on time!

You can also create a return label for your order here.

Do I have to pay for shipping since I have to return all the sample dresses?

Nope! Your Bride Box cost includes free shipping, both ways. 

What sizes do the samples come in?

Our samples are designed to give you an idea of style and silhouette, of tactile fabrics and gorgeous finishes, not to establish a perfect fit right off the bat. The Bridal Industry sample standard is a single, “Bridal Sized” 12. We offer a couple different sizes to help you get a much better sense of the dress on your body. When you order your sample, be sure to select the size range most accurate to you. If you wear a size 0-6, we will send you a size 6 sample. If you wear a size 6-12, we will send you a  size 12 sample (and so on). 

Just like in a bridal boutique, we’ll include clips in your Bride Box and step-by-step directions so that you can “tailor” and cinch the dress during your try-on session (but without any of the pushy manhandling).

Any fees or fine print?

Help us help you. As long as your samples are returned with all tags attached, in the condition you received them, we're all good.

Unfortunately, if samples come back with any new damage, stains, or signs of wear beyond trying on indoors, fees do indeed apply. We hate hidden fees as much as the next person, so here they are:

Major stains: $150 cleaning fee
Zipper damage: $125 repair fee
Other rips/tears: $175+ repair fee

Text us at (310) 596-1612 if you want to talk about extending your time with your samples - we're flexible! If we don't hear from you, after 7 days from delivery of your Bride Box we'll assume you're keeping the dresses.

If the dress is damaged beyond repair, we will have to charge you for the full price of the gown. We hate to go there, so kindly treat the samples with some TLC and return them on time. Any questions? Text (310) 596-1612 or email if you have any doubts.

When will my samples ship? 

Our samples book up fast, but depending on availability, you can typically expect to receive your Bride Box within 7-10 days of your order. If the samples you've ordered are in high demand, it may take longer. Either way, your Floravere Stylist will be touch within 3 business days after you order to arrange a delivery date that works for you.

Having a try-on party with friends & fam? That's the way to do it! If you have a specific try-on date in mind, just let us know in your order notes and we will try to accommodate. To ensure availability of your samples, we recommend you order at least 2-3 weeks before you'd like to try on.

Why these silhouettes?

One thing we’ve loved about the weddings we’ve been to (and been in) is how each dress seems so perfect for each bride and for each wedding. We put together a tightly curated and timeless capsule collection of classic silhouettes that our own friends would wear. From the traditionalist to the iconoclast, we think there’s something perfect (and totally flattering) for every bride and every body. Want recommendations based on your body, venue, mood? Text or email us, we'd love to walk you through it: (310) 596-1612  or

Can you help me pick something out?

We love talking wedding dresses!  Text (310) 596-1612 or e-mail anytime and one of our stylists will be happy to chat about style, vibe, and silhouette.

Final gown purchase FAQ

Buy our designer wedding dresses online: customized, made-to-order in 4-6 months

Do you offer sizes larger than 12?

Yes, we do! Because all final gowns are made to order, we are able to offer sizes beyond the standard size chart. Currently, we can make all final gowns from 0 to 30. Text (310) 596-1612 or email with any sizing questions! 

How much is shipping? What about to ship final gowns internationally?

Standard shipping on your final gown is $30 within the contiguous United States. 

Need rush shipping? Or require international shipping? Or shipping to Hawaii/Alaska/Puerto Rico? Select these options at checkout to calculate the shipping rates, or if you don't see the option you need, just get in touch!

How long will it take for my final gown to be ready?

Depending on the style, it may take 4-6 months, and we recommend you receive your gown at least 3 months before your actual wedding date so you have time for final alterations. Why the wait? Our gowns are always handcrafted and made-to-order (aka never, ever off-the-rack) and our artisans need time to craft up your creation. Traditional bridal boutiques usually require up to a year lead time to deliver your dress. We cut that in half by selling direct to you - and by employing some pretty savvy supply chain practices, if we do say so ourselves (but we won't bore you with those details).

Need your dress faster, you last-minute bride? We are able to accommodate rush orders. Just get in touch with us with the styles you're interested in and your wedding date and we'll let you know what's possible! 

What if I need my final gown faster?

Elopements are rad. We love that you are non-conventional! Shotgun weddings (are they still calling them that?) can also be awesome! Whatever your timing, we want to help you find THE dress. If you find yourself strapped for time, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do: (310) 596-1612 or

For any new gown, A $300-$600 rush fee will apply for any rush order, depending on how quickly you need it. 

We also encourage you to shop our online sample sale for gently worn wedding gowns available for immediate purchase in a range of sizes and styles.

What's the deal with "Bridal Sizing" vs. "Standard Sizing"?

We didn’t know this until we tried on our own wedding dresses, but “Bridal Sizing” is a strange sizing convention that is usually two sizes off from standard sizing - and in the wrong direction might we add! A “Bridal” 12 is actually closer to a size 8 or 10 in standard sizing (what?!). We don’t know why this wedding industry concept persists, but our dresses are sized standard comparable to contemporary lines because that just makes sense! So order the size you normally buy in regular clothing.

Wait, so what size should I order in my final dress?

Unlike at a brick-and-mortar bridal boutique, we’re not going to tell you to order a size (or two!) up off the bat just to have the dress tailored down. You may end up needing alterations (many brides do, especially as the wedding draws near, we’ve seen brides go through major size fluctuations in the weeks before the big day), but we want your dress to start as close to size as possible. If you’re a true 4 order a 4. If you’re between measured sizes, always order up. It’s as simple as that.

See our size chart on each gown's customization page to compare against your measurements. In between sizes? Order the size of your largest measurement (i.e. if you're a size 4 in the bust, but size 6 in the waist, order the size 6). If you ordered your Bride Box, we included a tape measure so you can measure yourself to a tee.

Dazed and confused? Text us at (310) 596-1612 or email us at and we'd be happy to talk it through and suggest a size! 

What about alterations?

Every body is different and your dress may need some tweaking in alterations to fit you like a glove. And, even if your dress fits perfectly out of the box (lucky you!), we’ve also seen many brides’ sizes fluctuate as it gets closer to the big day. We recommend getting in touch with an experienced bridal seamstress* in your area to check availability to ensure your perfect dress also fits you perfectly.  Text (310) 596-1612 or email us at if you are looking for guidance picking a seamstress near you.

*Loved your seamstress? Drop us a note so we can help make recommendations to future brides!

I'm tall/petite/broad-shouldered/full busted... how should I take that into account when ordering?

All of our gowns are designed thoughtfully with the requirements of different body types in mind. And construction details such as center back zippers and deep whip-stitched hems are designed to be alterations friendly. Your personal Floravere stylist is happy to talk through your specific needs and recommend the best option for your body type.

Our gowns do come standard, but if you are tall and the gown is too short on you - we are able to add 5 inches to the hemline of ANY style for an additional $200 fee.

What if my gown arrives damaged or defective?

Yikes! We inspect all merchandise before shipment to ensure the right item is sent with no defects. Upon receipt of your items please inspect it immediately and contact us with any issues at: (310) 596-1612 or Please let us know within 7 days of receipt for any defective items. 

Can I return my made-to-order gown?

Unfortunately, since all Floravere gowns are custom-made to order, final gowns, once purchased, cannot be returned. If you need to make any changes to your order, email us ASAP so we can modify or cancel your order before our artisans get to work. If your final gown arrives with any issues (damaged or not what you ordered) get in touch with us ASAP so we can to make it right: (310) 596-1612 or

Read More About Our Online Wedding Dress Shopping Vision
When we started dreaming of a wedding dress startup to try on wedding dresses at home we knew we had to reinvent the wedding dress shopping experience all together. What we created is the first direct to consumer wedding dress company. We wanted brides to not only browse wedding dresses online, but be able to actually buy the wedding dress online that they’ve been browsing (no more dream-crushing Pinterest images with broken links!). We knew that since every dress is made to order, it should be customized exactly how the bride wants it, so we created customizations for you to design your own wedding dress online. We knew that we could source the same fabrics, and use the same couture artisans at the same labels, but without charging the same designer markups to deliver brides a designer wedding dress for less. Better still, shipping the dress directly to you means fast wedding dresses, because not all of us can pick out a dress 9+ months in advance. Our result? Cool wedding dresses for cool brides, with a process that helps you keep your cool. Have your cake and eat it too.
