Alexandra

Due to our exclusive luxury laces, this style is extremely limited. We recommend securing your gown as soon as you know it’s the one.

The Alexandra is for the woman who is a showstopper – she wants to look striking and feminine, but in a sophisticated and understated way. Our Alexandra was made for the GLL woman we all want to be – she is confident, but modest, she is an effortless, natural beauty – she has it all.

The Alexandra gown is all about the beautifully balanced silhouette, which highlights the female shape in an elegant and subtle way. The Alexandra has been handmade from soft, lightweight French lace and features hand cut lace applique on every edge. Beginning with a flattering high neck with a plunging V-neck lining and built in cups, the Alexandra has a daringly low, yet wearable open back, which is secured with a single satin button at the neckline. We love the dramatic fishtail skirt, which has a centre front opening and large back godet, with a stunning 40cm, 80cm or 120cm train. A concealed finger loop is featured on the 80cm and 120cm train. The 120cm train length also provides a bustle to keep you moving and dancing all night.

Note: Due to the exclusive nature of our unique French lace, we have changed the beautiful lace of our Alexandra gown. Pictures 1-3 and 7-26 show our new lace.

Model measurements (Picture 1):
Bust: 84cm

Hips: 90cm
Height: 178cm
The model is a size XXS-XS. The sample worn is a standard, ready-made size XS.

The Alexandra stretches over the head and down the body without any boning or structure. There is a single satin button fastening at the back of the neck to secure the gown. The all-over stretch French lace is fully lined with a light, breathable polyester. The bust features built in cups and a deep V lining. The Alexandra flows effortlessly into a fishtail skirt with a knee-length centre front opening and a large lace godet, which is finished with a 120cm train (which can be altered to 40cm or 80cm). The 80cm and 120cm trains feature a concealed finger loop and the 120cm train also features a bustle so that you can easily dance all night.  

Your gown will be made to order, especially for you. Our Customer Service team will be in touch with you within days of you placing your order to discuss your measurements, height and size preference. It's important to note that our gowns are specifically designed for an easy, comfortable and versatile fit with luxurious stretch laces and stretch components in each design. Your measurements act as a guide and we make your gown to the dress size that each part of your body fits. This might mean your measurements have placed you as an all-over, equal size or your bust, waist, hip may differ in size categories. Don't worry, this is very normal and everyone is different.

Simply choose the dress size that best suits your general dress size in the size dropdown menu below. You can add your measurements, height and wedding date to your order and we will also confirm this with you after you place your order. If you do not have your measurements on hand whilst you are ordering, don't worry, we will get them off you at your earliest convenience.

Each style dress has specific measurements we need, some more than others, depending on how fitted it is.

For very urgent orders we offer ready-made gowns in some styles. These are made to standard all-over dress sizes and a standard height (155cm). If you are in need of an urgent, ready-made gown please email [email protected]

We are here to help you throughout the process. You can contact our Stylist team if you have any questions regarding styles and sizing - [email protected]

Measurements we need: 
- Bust
- Under bust
- Shoulder to bust point
- Waist
- Hip
- Cup size 
- Shoulder to floor

Stylists' Notes

We envision our Alexandra gown with the white or ivory Gabriela veil for a sleek and elegant look, or the Hollie veil for a more traditional feel. The centre opening will showcase the Dosa heels and Venus or Hera anklets perfectly.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
The Alexandra has built in lightly padded cups, so there is no need to wear a bra. A thicker padded cup is also available by request.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Alexandra is fully lined from the bust down.

What does it feel like to wear?
Beautiful, natural and breathable. The Alexandra is soft, luxurious and comfortable without any 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 [email protected]

How is my dress made?
We hand make your dress especially for you in our studio. We are based in Queensland, Australia and we deliver worldwide.

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.

Delivery

International orders are sent via DHL Express, which takes between 3-7 business days to arrive. Domestic orders are sent via Australian Express Post, which takes between 1-3 business days to arrive. Please contact a stylist regarding availability of ready-to-wear gowns - [email protected]

Hi GLL Team
I wanted to thank you for creating the perfect wedding dress for our big day.
I felt absolutely incredible and best of all - it was so comfy the whole day!!
The tone of our day was rustic chic country and the dress could not have been more suited.
It's always a good sign when your guests collectively gasp when you start to walk down the aisle :-)
I have attached some pics.
Thank you again!!
Cheers
Olivia xx


Hi there,
Before I tried on any wedding dresses, a friend told me about your website. The very first dress I clicked on was your 'Alexandra' dress. It was love at first sight. I was sold! Even though I knew it was the dress for me, my mum wanted the experience of wedding dress shopping with her first daughter to be married so she shouted myself and my sister to the Gold Coast to try on this dress at your studio. It was absolutely perfect, and the only dress I ever tried on. It was the most comfortable thing I have ever worn - I think the photos express just how good of a party it was!!
Love Liz.
