I’m new to wedding dress shopping and unfamiliar with some of the terms on your product pages – Help!
Are your wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses made-to-order?
Unless otherwise indicated, all merchandise on our website is ready to ship at time of purchase. Some items may appear as preorder or backorder, and the expected ship date for these items is shown on the product page.
What does “preorder" and “backorder" mean?
Preorder items are still being produced, and therefore won’t ship to you right away. Conversely, backorder items are styles we’ve sold through available inventory on, and a replenishment is in production.
Once you purchase a preorder or backorder item, the style will ship to you as soon as we have received the inventory to complete your purchase. Expected ship dates are listed on each item's product page, or you can contact [email protected] for more information on expected shipping.
How do I care for my wedding gown or bridesmaid dress?
All Vow’d wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses are dry clean only. Please refer to the dress's care label for full details.
Do you offer plus-size styles?
We offer a variety of plus-sized wedding dresses that are specifically cut to fit a curvier silhouette, up to size 24W. Shop the collection here.
Do you charge more for plus-size gowns and dresses?
Size is just a number and it shouldn’t affect the price tag.
Do you still offer try-at-home?
We recently decided to sunset our try-at-home program to focus on our rapidly growing store list. We'll be announcing expansion plans in the coming months and can't wait to meet you IRL! If you'd like online support in narrowing down your dress picks we recommend scheduling a virtual appointment. Our seasoned stylists are ready to help you find *the* dress for you.
