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

Each gown is made uniquely by hand and no two gowns will ever be the same. As such the placement of motifs may differ slightly and not appear exactly as on our models.

*Pearls will vary slightly in shape and/or size as they are natural freshwater pearls

Stylist Notes

"For the woman who wants to look less bride and more bombshell! Style it up with the Henri veil and statement earrings or wear it alone for that “barely bridal” effect. All about the sharp, cool, babe-like shape and minimalism. I adore the cowl neck, open back and paired back silhouette. The detail comes with the fabric and amazing cultured pearls that are hand-sewn to the silk roulé threaded straps." - GLL Founder, Megan.

"Lake has an elegantly sexy silhouette that is sure to command attention with its open tie-back feature and figure-hugging shimmery foil embossed fabric. Lake will hug your curves and accentuate your bottom, and the back split in the skirt commands extra attention. We recommend perfectly manicured toes showcased by our Nude Dosa Heel and Cassidy anklets. Complete your look by adding our Cassidy necklace which is the perfect combination to pay homage to the Lake’s lower cowl neckline and exposed decolletage. Add a pair of our Brigade hoops for extra sass." - GLL Stylist, Bec.

"The Lake bride is the ultimate cool girl. She is a GLL goddess! The sexy, sleek silhouette is perfect for a timeless reception look, or is unforgettable styled with our signature Henri veil as you walk down the aisle. The Lake bride is a lover of the minimalist look, but is still wanting the WOW factor. Style Lake with our Garden Ball or Wire Hoop Earrings and Dosa heels for a chic, elegant look." - GLL Stylist, Kate.

"With just the right balance of sophistication and sexiness, the Lake was made for an entrance. The lace-up low back and cowl neckline is bound to make you look and feel like a knock-out! Pair the Lake with our Gabriela Veil, Dosa Heels and Wire Hoop Earrings!" - GLL Stylist, Angela.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear adhesive cups with the Lake gown for shape and support.

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

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Lake is fully lined with a soft satin lining.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Lake feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade with an exclusive textured embroidery with thin silk straps trimmed with pearls.

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 bride 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.
