WHAT PREVIOUS BRIDES HAVE SAID

  • I chose the summer gown. The dress was always ‘me’ and that’s how I always wanted to feel. The way it just falls of your figure beautifully and the back well we can see its just to die for! Its elegant, natural and forever timeless.

    #GRACEBRIDE Hayley

  • I loved EVERYTHING about this dress and veil. The dress fit the feel that I could imagine for a day as special as this. Timeless, & Beautiful. The simplicity of the stunning silk gown with a more dramatic crochet-lace veil was the perfect balance for me!

    #GRACEBRIDE Amanda

  • I chose the Summer Silk Dress paired with the Pearly Long Veil. I had my eye on this dress for a long time so naturally it was the first one I tried on. I instantly fell in love with it as I felt like “me”! It was elegant, effortless and comfortable (I wanted to make sure I could dance the night away).

    #GRACEBRIDE Georgie

  • My dress was the elegant and beautiful Summer gown. I’ve always loved GLL dresses, but I was in need of a simple gown for our small elopement ceremony last summer. I wanted something effortless, comfortable, and modern. Summer was the one!

“You’ve asked and we’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 backpieces and veils that allow you to make this blank canvas truly 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.

  • For example — a bride may measure an XL bust, L under bust, XL waist and M hip, and we make your gown to the correct size range in each area. ​
  • The reason this process works is because our fabrics are very forgiving due to the stretch or bias elements in the design.
