Violet

Combining feminine charm with classic details, the Violet is for the woman who wants a beautiful dress that perfectly fuses tradition with modern accents. Handmade with soft blush tulle and a unique two-tone bodice, featuring ivory stretch cotton lace and nude lining, the Violet gown is for the elegant and graceful GLL girl.

Beginning with a flattering high neckline, which gives the illusion of a halter neck, the Violet has a T back, which adds a contemporary feel to this timeless gown. The bodice features nude lining with ivory stretch cotton lace and the elastic waistband is accentuated with a simple nude satin ribbon. We love the glowing blush tulle skirt on the Violet, which skims the floor and is complemented by a chic, ivory lining.

Size + Fit

Our model (in pictures 1-3) wears 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 Violet stretches over the head and down the body, with no need for zips or buttons. The elastic waistband is accentuated with a simple nude satin ribbon. The glowing blush tulle skirt flows naturally over the hips and skims the floor, with a chic ivory lining.

Measurements we need:
- Bust
- Under bust
- Waist
- Shoulder to floor height

Stylists' Notes

We envision the Violet gown with the Venus headpiece or anklets and the Flores Earrings, as the rose gold hardware will compliment the blush tones of the dress. The Hollie veil or Gabriella veil in ivory will add to the classic feel of the Violet. The shorter ivory lining is perfectly paired with the chic nude Dosa heels.

Special Notes & Questions

Can I wear a bra?
You could wear an adhesive bra with the Violet if you want extra shape and support.

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

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

What does it feel like to wear?
Beautiful and lightweight. The Violet has been handmade using fine French lace and soft Italian tulle, with no 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.

Testimonials

I adore all of your gowns and could not have been happier with my Violet wedding dress! Your showroom is divine, thankyou for creating such beautiful pieces.
Many Thanks,
Leah


Hi Rachel,
I received my violet dress in the mail this morning. I was so nervous that I couldn’t bring myself to open the package for two hours! The packaging and everything makes it so special and I am so in love with Violet that I didn’t want to take her off! Fits like a glove, looks sensational and is exactly what I wanted - a simple yet elegant dress. The added bonus is that it is so lightweight and easy to wear which is fantastic for a Feb wedding in the heat. I am so excited to wear this for my wedding.
Thank you, and the team at Grace Loves Lace.
Kind Regards,
Kursty xx
