Stylist Advice

“You've asked and I've listened! Summer is a gown I have had on my ‘to-do’ list for years. Who doesn't love a low back bias cut silk gown with fine straps? We elevated it by using double layers of Crepe de Chine silk, and worked on the pattern and fit for 6 months, creating back-pieces and veils that allow you to make this blank canvas YOURS. It's simply elegant, unfussy, luxurious and classic. I adore it with the Pearly, Chantilly, Shimmy or Loyola veil. It's one of those gowns you need in your life.” Megan Ziems, Founder and Creative Director.

Team the Summer with our Loyola veil - a show-stopping veil in our exclusive modern floral silk burnout. Or try our Shimmy veil - available in nude or ivory tulle with gold or silver sparkle - which captures the light in the most magnificent way.

Gown FAQs

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear adhesive cups or an invisible strap bra. However, the double layer silk allows you to confidently wear nothing at all.

Is the dress see-through at all?
No. The Crepe de Chine silk has a gorgeous, milky velvet matte finish and the double layer allows you to feel confident wearing an all-silk gown. The weight of each layer of silk is 30 momme.

What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Summer is buttery soft - it’s so luxurious and lovely to wear. The double layer silk allows you to feel confident and effortlessly beautiful.

How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides place their order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to handmake our beautiful dresses. For urgent, last-minute orders, please email [email protected]

How is my dress made?
We handmake your dress especially for you in our Australian studio. We are based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, 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, every gown undergoes intensive design and development processes to ensure 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?
The majority of 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.

Make a statement in the Mata earrings, channel your inner Parisienne in our Silk hair bun, or add a little coverage on a balmy summer evening with the Loyola shawl.

Ordering & Delivery Details

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
- Cup size
- Waist
- Hip
- Shoulder to floor
- Shoulder to bust point
- Heel

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.

We deliver worldwide and sell exclusively through our website and showroom locations. International orders are sent via UPS 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.
