Size Guide

WHAT PREVIOUS BRIDES HAVE SAID

  • Our whole aesthetic of the wedding was Surf Ranch meets European Garden. Drew had one request for the day—my dress be lace. I knew GLL was the perfect place! I tried on 5 gowns and kept going back to the Bonita. The train, delicate rose lace, trim, and spaghetti straps felt sexy yet timeless. I am larger chested, so the neckline was easily tailored to fit me perfectly.

    #GRACEBRIDE Ali

  • Our bodies hold stories. Celebration and acceptance of my body as a female temple was important for me leading up to my wedding. I was looking for a dress that was statement-making and elegant but did not take away from my body’s natural story. I chose the Bonita dress and knew it was ‘The One’ when after putting the dress on without any jewelry or accessories, I still felt beautiful.

    #GRACEBRIDE Kenya

  • Before I even got engaged, I knew the Alexandra would be the dress I’d share my vows in. It embodies everything I love- a romantic lace design, high neck line, sleek silhouette with a dramatic train.

    #GRACEBRIDE Katherine

  • I chose the Bonita wedding dress! I had no idea I would choose this dress but when I put it on, I knew it was the one! I knew I wanted something simple, timelessand me. I never thought I would find a wedding dress I loved becauseI’ve never been drawn to traditionalwedding gowns. Theones I pinned on Pinterest for inspiration were most likeGrace Loves Lace!I founditdivine that Dallaswas one of 9citiesin the U.S. that had aGLL Showroom,so I went! I lovedall of the dresses I tried on but when I tried on the Bonita, I loved it becauseit wasme!After I left the GLL showroom,I went to one other place to look at additional dressesand after the first one I tried, I knew there was no point in going anywhere else–I called theshowroomand purchased the Bonita!

“Bonita took a very long time to get right, and boy, is she perfect! Bonita is sexy, feminine and gorgeous. I would happily wear Bonita and the Chantilly veil. We created the lace to hug and complement the curves of the body and made sure we featured our signature centre front split in the skirt. It's a gown that has a really good balance of being fitted in the bodice and full in the skirt. You will feel phenomenal in Bonita.”

Megan Ziems, Founder and Creative Director.
