Classic. Confident. Timeless. The Orla is all about elegance – crafted and contoured to perfection and designed to accentuate your curves. Made from an exclusive and flattering abstract 3D lace with a luminous pearl thread and delicate eyelash trim, the Orla features a scalloped edge neckline, daring low back and clever, bottom-hugging gathering. It’s the long-sleeve wedding dress of your dreams.
“I have been wanting to do a long sleeve, open-back gown that hugged the butt for a long time and here she is. A favourite on our team for her mix of classic elegance and a modern, exciting low back. We created the lace and contouring to feel really flattering and comfortable. I would wear Orla with the Chantilly or Pearly veil.” – Megan Ziems, Founder and Creative Director.
Can I wear a bra?
You can wear adhesive cups for shape and support.
Is the dress see-through at all?
The Orla features unlined sleeves and decolletage, with soft stretch lining in the body.
What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin-coloured, seamless underwear.
What does this dress feel like to touch?
The Orla feels soft and luxurious. It has been handmade in an exclusive luxuriously soft lace that moulds to the body.
How long does it take for my dress to be made?
We recommend ordering your dress as soon as you can, as our lead times fluctuate depending on when you’re getting married. We try our best to cater to tight deadlines with our made-to-order collection, but also provide a limited selection of ready-to-wear wedding dresses too. To check whether you’re on track for a made-to-order gown, contact our customer service team via email or live chat.
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?
Every Grace Loves Lace dress undergoes intensive design 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?
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. Our Orla dress is crafted from luxurious stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, it will still fit beautifully. However, 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.

Veils and Hair Accessories
Try our Chantilly, Pearly, Shimmy, Gabriela and Henri veils, and consider switching up your look with our hair accessories. The Chantilly hair bun or Silk Hair Bun would be ideal.
We love pairing the Orla dress with our Mata, Essie, Nini, Carine or Gaia earrings. It looks exquisite teamed with our Mata backpiece for maximum impact.
Jackets and Cover Ups
Stay cosy and stylish in the cooler months by layering your Orla dress with the Joplin or Iskra jacket. We’re loving wearing it with denim and silk too!
Shoes and Accessories
Dance the night away in our luxurious and comfortable Dosas – the only heels you’ll ever need! Choose between the nude or white, and add the Avila, Mata or Artemis anklets.
I purchased my gown online (everybody thought I was crazy) but it was so smooth sailing! I had my mum take my measurements,
e-mailed them in to Grace Loves Lace and ta-da…I had my dress 3 months later. My gown fit perfectly and communicating with the GLL
stylists half way across the world was an absolute breeze!

A month after we got engaged, GLL opened a London showroom and I cannot express how excited I was to visit the showroom! I thought we might have to visit Australia to try on the Verdelle 2.0! The showroom is utterly beautiful! From the earthy blush décor, the rosé fizz and the super friendly service, the whole experience was just beautiful! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Charlotte
I loved how easy it was to move around in my GLL gown! I tried on a lot of dresses before I went to Grace Loves Lace and didn’t feel comfortable even walking around in them, let alone dancing. GLL gown’s almost feel like you’re naked. The lace is so comfortable, and they accentuate where they are supposed to! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Grace
I loved feeling free and flowy. I didn’t want to feel constricted or heavy in a wedding gown and my dress made me feel so comfortable. The delicate detail in the lace of the gown was beautiful and I love that it was made to fit my body and I didn’t have to stress about gaining or losing weight before my wedding and needing last minute alterations. – Grace Loves Lace Bride Jamie
My GLL showroom experience was incredible. I arrived with my maid of honor, mother and mother in law and they accommodated us with champagne and show room area. My GLL Stylist was so incredibly sweet and thoughtful and was attentive to my needs and concerns as a bride. She knew the brand and the dresses inside and out! The showroom experience was fun and memorable! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Mallory
GLL was the one and only place I visited when wedding dress shopping. I’ve always admired the ethereal beauty of the gowns and just knew I would find ‘The One’ with ease at GLL! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Kendall
I’ve followed GLL for as long as I can remember and always knew I wanted to be a GLL bride. I am lucky enough to live close to the Gold Coast, so naturally I attended their stunning GC showroom. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable. The girls who work there are experts at their jobs, and the two times I visited I felt welcome, special and beautiful. – Grace Loves Lace Bride Laura
GLL made me feel more beautiful than I ever have in my whole life! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Aubrey
I first saw my dream gown on the GLL Instagram page and it was the first wedding dress i tried on! My friend thought I was crazy to drive 7 hours to the Grace Loves Lace LA showroom for a dress but when you know, you know! – Grace Loves Lace Bride Oksana

At GLL, we experienced huge growth and success very early on after launching in 2010. Being the original at what we do and filling such an important gap in the wedding dress market meant that demand was high. This immediate growth brought with it huge pressure in all areas of the business. It was exciting but could have also – like so many businesses have found- been our downfall. The reason we didn’t crumble in these early years was due to our passion, hard work and staying true to what made our brand and product so special in the first place. For us, there is no such thing as success without happy customers and quality product and service. This is why we have the stellar reputation we have, and when dealing with thousands of brides in over 65 countries every year - this is crucial.
From the beginning we have placed just as much importance on customer experience and customer service as we have on our product itself. Our team are completely invested in what we do and how each woman feels when they talk to them on the phone, on email and see them in our showrooms. The level of passion and dedication in our team is what makes us the proudest.
Every product we design is handmade in our Australian headquarters. We do not believe in off-shore manufacturing to save dollars. Keeping everything in-house allows us to maintain our high standards and requirements. We have a team of over 50 now and our cutters, seamstresses and design and production team have exceptional experience and skill, particularly with our unique garment construction and luxury delicate fabrics.
We do not believe in mass production. Each gown is made to order and our ready to wear selection is produced on demand. Everything has a purpose for us, including scrap fabric that would normally be wasted in factories. Most importantly, we haven’t lost our passion- it gets stronger. Every facet of the business is always moving forward and we LOVE what we do.
