Genevieve

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.

Delicate and romantic, the Genevieve is a classic beauty with an old-world feel. This gown is for the woman who is creative, passionate and strong willed – she moves in a different way. The Genevieve was created by the ultimate lover of lace and has been handmade with a combination of the finest French laces for beautiful movement.

The dramatic, plunging neckline is the standout feature of the soft and elegant Genevieve. Featuring sheer mesh panels with built in cups and a French eyelash lace trim, the neckline was designed to subtly highlight the décolletage, whilst being comfortable and easy to wear. The Genevieve features double layer straps with fitted invisible tulle and a loose French lace overlay, which creates a whimsical, feminine touch. The bodice is finished with gathered eyelash lace panels and a deep V front, with an elastic waistband. The silk chiffon, A-line skirt is layered with panels of fine silk chiffon and eyelash lace, which flows effortlessly into a natural train.

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
- Waist
- Hip
- Cup size
- Shoulder to floor

Our Styling Tips

We envision our Genevieve gown with a messy up do, tanned glossy skin and natural, glowing makeup. We would style the Genevieve with the Flores or Maya earrings, the Rock and Roll chiffon belt or the satin ribbon belt. The splits in the skirt will showcase the Dosa heels and the Hera or Venus anklets perfectly.

Special notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
The Genevieve has built in lightly padded cups, so there is no need to wear a bra. This gown is not ideal for large-extra large bust sizes that need more support.

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

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

What does it feel like to wear?
Beautiful, natural and breathable. The Genevieve 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]
