Invite your girlfriends over to sip champagne in a clean, well-lit space. They’ll want to be there for this treasured moment when you try on ‘The One’!

We highly recommend you try your dress on as soon as you receive it. If something isn’t quite right, you can contact your local trusted tailor for mending. For more information on returns, review our guidelines. When your gown is good to go, hang it in the back of your wardrobe using the garment loops to keep it safe and clean.

To celebrate reaching a milestone like opening our 10th global showroom, we couldn’t open anywhere else but on home turf. “As a proudly Australian company, it’s been a dream of mine to build a showroom in Sydney with a flagship space in Australia’s biggest city.” – Megan Ziems, Founder and Creative Director.
From the moment you walk through our front door, a member of our friendly Grace styling team will welcome you into a world of earthy luxury. We pride ourselves on our warm, friendly and relaxed spaces and customer service, and our Sydney boutique is no different.
With an eclectic mix of hard industrial edges and soft romantic details, we bring you our Chicago bridal showroom, located on the trendy Randolph Street, for brides who are looking for an experience to remember. Designed with the urban woman in mind – the bride who knows what she wants – this vast and light-filled space has been warehouse-converted into what we now know as our stunning Chicago bridal showroom.
A newly-renovated framework of exposed brick now houses our gorgeous GLL wedding dresses in a space that’s open and airy yet warm and inviting. Think freestanding rails, brass-rimmed mirrors, oversized stone pots and relaxed linen lounges, punctuated by art deco furnishings, undone bouquets, tall olive trees and sweeping linen drapes.

Do I need to select my favourite GLL gowns prior to my appointment?
To ensure we can best prepare for your appointment, be sure to list your preferred styles prior to visiting our showroom. You will be prompted to list your favourite gowns when making your booking.
Am I required to purchase my gown on the day?
We understand it can take time to make your decision. You are not required to purchase on the day. In fact, you are able to continue speaking with your stylist after the appointment via email.
What payment methods are accepted?
As we are an online business we only accept payment in full, at time of ordering, via Visa, Mastercard or Paypal. If you wish to pay with an AMEX, we recommend setting up a Paypal account prior.
Will I be guaranteed my desired appointment date and time?
Our weekend consultations typically book out 6 -8 weeks in advance. We will always do our very best to accommodate you on short notice and we would be happy to add your details to our cancellations list for any appointment that may arise. We advise, for this reason, to book as soon as you know you want to wear a GLL gown.
What if I need to cancel my consultation?
We get it, life happens! We do kindly ask that you provide 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or re-schedule as we are a small boutique showroom and can only see a very limited number of brides in a day.
What do I need to bring?
Your beautiful self, wear nude seamless underwear, minimal to no makeup and no tanning products. You can also bring along your favourite nude strapless bra or adhesive cups if you wish.
Can I purchase directly from your showroom & walk out with my gown?
In our showrooms, you are able to try on all gowns from our range. When you are ready to purchase ‘The One’, your gown will be shipped direct to your door from our Australian studio where it is handmade. The only destination in the world where you can purchase a gown on the spot and take it home with you that day is our newly opened NYC Flagship.
Bust Size Guide
STEP 1. HOW TO MEASURE YOUR UNDERBUST:
Ideally have someone else take these measurements for you. Stand with your arms resting by your side. Measure around the body directly under the bust, ensure the tape is straight all the way around, and firm but comfortable. It is best to take this measurement while you are not wearing a bra, or you can wear a strapless, non padded bra-just be careful not to sit the tape over the bra or underwire. This measurement is your UNDERBUST.
Use Step 1 in the chart to determine your UNDERBUST size.
STEP 1. HOW TO MEASURE YOUR UNDERBUST:
This measurement is best taken wearing a strapless non padded bra. Measure around the fullest part of the bust (usually over the nipple). Hold the tape firmly but comfortably. Make sure the tape measure is straight across your back and sits parallel to the floor. This measurement is your Bust size.
Use Step 2 to establish your CUP size.
