Tara

With a timeless, flattering silhouette and striking, yet understated details, our Tara gown was made for the effortlessly beautiful modern romantic. A signature GLL style, the Tara is the perfect simplistic wedding dress, created for brides who loved our iconic Hollie dress, but wanted an elegant, fully lined skirt.

Beginning with a stretch French lace bodice, trimmed with hand cut appliquéd French lace motifs, the Tara gown was designed to highlight the décolletage in the most beautiful way. The bodice is finished with fine spaghetti straps and a statement dipped back, which has become an iconic feature of this beloved GLL gown. The alluring lace torso is perfectly balanced by the chic, fully lined silk chiffon skirt, which flows into a natural train that comes to life with movement.

Size + Fit

Our models wear a standard size XS (Australian size 8). Each gown requires particular measurements to be taken, these measurements then determine your dress size. If you are unsure of your dress size, please visit our sizing page to view our measurement charts and a video. Do not worry if you are measuring different dress sizes for different parts of your body, this is common. Our customer care team communicates with you throughout the process.

In between sizes? Each one of our gowns is made from a beautiful stretch French lace, so it all comes down to personal preference. Do it your way, choose whether you’d like a form fitting gown or a more relaxed fit.

The Tara gown stretches over the head and down the body, with no need for zips and buttons. Available in white or ivory, the Tara dress has been handmade with a lightweight stretch French lace and features hand cut appliquéd lace motifs. The bodice is finished with fine spaghetti straps and a romantic, dipped back. This simplistic gown has a full-length silk chiffon skirt, lined with a light satin, which can be made with a 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train.

Stylists' Notes

We envision our Tara gown with our white or nude Dosa heels, the vibrant Virtue earrings and our timeless Gabriela veil, which will come to life with movement.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
The Tara gown has built in cups for shape and support. Alternatively, you could also wear an adhesive bra.

What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Tara gown is fully lined.

What does it feel like to wear?
The Tara is a beautiful and effortlessly romantic dress that is comfortable and breathable to wear. It has been handmade with a lightweight French lace and Italian silk, with no restrictive boning or structure.

How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to hand make our beautiful dresses. For urgent last minute orders please email info@graceloveslace.com.au

How is my dress made?
All of our dresses are designed and hand made at our studio on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every Grace girl what they request in terms of alterations, however each and every one of our gowns undergo intensive design processes to ensure that the fit, feel and balance of each dress is absolutely perfect. Therefore, we do not offer customisations, unless stated.

What if I lose/gain weight?
Our designs are crafted from luxurious French stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, the original size still fits beautifully. If not, it is also very easy to have the dress altered by a professional seamstress if you would like it to be a little more fitted. Your measurements will determine which size you fall into.

Furthermore, we go to every effort to ensure your dress is the right fit. If you place your order well in advance of your wedding date then we can confirm your size right before your dress goes into production.

Hello!
I got married this past February in the Cayman Islands wearing the beautiful Tara dress. I cannot express to you how much I loved my dress. After searching for what seemed like forever, I was excited and relieved to have finally found a dress that was unique and fit my personal style. The dress was perfect for my beach wedding and I received so many compliments. My husbands face when he saw me walking down the aisle was a moment I will never forget.
Thanks again,
Love, Kaitlyn
xoxo
